X-Perl Skin UI (now supports WS)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.03.01
by: Lawura [More]
The package will no longer be updated.


The textures used for this UI are aviable in xpDeluxe package

One day, when I rolled a druid healer and entered my first raid with her, I have discovered, that Blizzard UI is not helping much my performance. Ever sinse I worked on trying to move things out of my way and, finally, ended with a panel UI.

I tried a couple graphical designs, tried to draw my own graphics but sense of simplicity took over and this is the result.
I hope someone find this usefull for themselves and it will save your time building your own UI from a scrach.


Purposes
I like to say shortly about what I tried to achive in my interface.
I am more or less a clicker. I like all my spells and abilities to be visible or, at least, at ease access. Also, as a raider I wish every single bit of needed information to be clear and noticable while having a clear viewport and minimum of not related graphics. What I have achieved with this UI satisfies me fully in all my demands.

_______________________


This UI is for you if:
  • you are tired of Blizz frames overlaping the whole your viewport
  • you always miss at least 12 extra bars besides those Blizz offers
  • you never have room to place your 24 bars
  • you are tired of looking for the spell you need in the brick of bars you got
  • you are sick of brightly colored mosaic of your addons but need them all
  • you often get ganked by something from outside your viewport
  • you love things to be sorted thematically
  • you love your minimap to be clean
  • you are fan of panels
  • you are fan of X-perl default skin

_______________________


Resolution
1280x800 Widescreen
1280x1024 Normal Screen


_______________________


The package contains:

1. Addons collection
Core
These addons are basic of the UI. You must have for the UI to look as intended
  • Bartender 4- moveable action bars that replace standard blizzard action bars.
  • Button Facade - skining for action bars and buffs icons .
  • ButtonFacade: Apathy - a skin for action bars that gives the icons that pretty glow and compact shape =)
  • Chinchilla Minimap - moveable minimap with some additional features. Allows to move world state frame, quest traker frame, repair frame and others. Allows include or exclude default minimap icons and more.
  • kgPanels (3.3.2)- additional panels. In the X-Perl skin UI used for backgrounds for buffs and player frames
  • LunarSphere - Additional 10 action bars with additional features such as autosell junk.
  • Minimap Button Frame - Moves all your minimap buttons into one compact box.
  • Titan Panel with additional plugins - a panel on top and buttom of your screen that is customizable to show information you most need
  • Satrina Buff Frames 3 - moves and customizes buff frames
  • Reflux (3.3.2)- support addon that allows quick switch of multiply profiles
  • Skada Damage Meter(3.3.2) - modular damage meter with various viewing modes.
  • Sunn - Viewport Art - resizes viewport and places graphic into the freed space
  • Tipsy - moves tooltips
  • X-Perl UnitFrames - used for moving and customizing unit frames
Optional
Those addons I use myself in addition to the UI. If you dont like them, you are free to exclude them from your useage.
  • Arkinventory - combines all your bags into one and allows sorting contents of your bags into categories. Also alows viewing inventory on other caracters on your account and even other realms.
  • Atlas and Atlasloot Enhanced (3.3.2) - a huge database containing information about dungeons, dungeons loot, pvp rewards, professions and more
  • DBM (3.3.2), also known as Deadly Boss Mods - Your friend on most deadly boss encounters, warining and informing you on most major events of combat. Raid addon.
  • Easycopy - another chat addon that allows to copy everyting what appeares in your chatbox. Als places time to every posted line and allows mouse weel chat scroll.
  • Icehud - highly customizeable HUD with quite a few skins.
  • Mik Scrolling Battle Text - arranges your combat events into categories. Customize it on your taste - it can never be same for two different players.
  • Power Auras Classic - Places a graphical or textural waring on your viewport on event you decide. Raid/pvp addon. Very customizable.
  • QuestItemBar - shows all the quest items (except those you decide not to show) on additional bar.
  • Spam me not - reports gold sellers automatically and cuts all their crap off from your chat.
  • Tidy Plates - enhances the Blizzard nameplates, providing graphical and functional improvements.
  • Vuhdo (3.3.2) - hightly cuztomizable raid unit frames. I prefer them to X-Perl for raiding. Concidered to be raid frames for healers.

4. Textures for MBF
5. Interface settings for normal screen.
5. Interface settings for wide screen.

FAQ
  • How to install UI for multiple characters? I made it work on one character but nothing happens when I /reflux others
    You have to install the UI settings for every character and for every realm, and every account in order to make UI work on a character that is linked to those.
    So, if after installation your WTF folder looks like this:
    WTF
    __╚═ Account
    ______╚═ YOUR_ACCOUNT
    __________╚═ YOUR_REALM
    ______________╚═ YOUR_CHARACTER

    then in order to make it work for multiple characters you have to dublicate YOUR_CHARACTER folder as many times as many characters you want to run UI on:
    WTF
    __╚═ Account
    ______╚═ YOUR_ACCOUNT
    __________╚═ YOUR_REALM
    ______________╠═ YOUR_CHARACTER_A
    ______________╠═ YOUR_CHARACTER_B
    ______________╠═ YOUR_CHARACTER_C
    ______________╚═ YOUR_CHARACTER_D

    Now the more interesting thing comes. You want to make UI to work also on characters on other realm? Dublicate realm folder as many realms as you are playing, and in each realm folder dublicate the characters folders for as many characters as you have on that realm:
    WTF
    __╚═ Account
    ______╚═ YOUR_ACCOUNT
    _________╠═ YOUR_REALM_A
    ___________ ╠═ YOUR_CHARACTER_A
    ___________ ╚═ YOUR_CHARACTER_B
    _________╠═ YOUR_REALM_B
    ___________ ╚═ YOUR_CHARACTER
    _________╚═ YOUR_REALM_C
    ____________ ╠═ YOUR_CHARACTER_A
    ____________ ╠═ YOUR_CHARACTER_B
    ____________ ╚═ YOUR_CHARACTER_C

    Guess, what? Its absolutely same system, if you are playing with different accounts:
    WTF
    __╚═ Account
    ______╠═ YOUR_ACCOUNT_A
    ________ ╠═ YOUR_REALM_A
    __________ ╚═ YOUR_CHARACTER
    ________ ╠═ YOUR_REALM_B
    __________ ╠═ YOUR_CHARACTER_A
    __________ ╠═ YOUR_CHARACTER_B
    __________ ╚═ YOUR_CHARACTER_C
    ________ ╚═ YOUR_REALM_C
    _____________ ╠═ YOUR_CHARACTER_A
    _____________ ╚═ YOUR_CHARACTER_B
    ______╚═ YOUR_ACCOUNT_B
    _______ __ ╠═ YOUR_REALM_A
    _______ ___ ╠═ YOUR_CHARACTER_A
    _______ ___ ╚═ YOUR_CHARACTER_B
    _______ __ ╚═ YOUR_REALM_B
    ______________ ╚═ YOUR_CHARACTER

    Tips
    • Copying folder of existing chracter may result in bugging lunar sphere in the case if it's bars on donor character were filled up. If possible use the folder from original installation.
    • If you are temping to edit anything in the original profiles, after a failture to install UI on multiple characters, keep in mind, the changes will be applied to all characters, that share the profile.
    • For addons that support profiles, create a new profile, copy X-Perl Skin UI profile settings into it. Set the new profile as active and do your changes.
    • Most efficient way to back up profiles of multiple addons is by using Reflux feature that allowes to copy all existing profiles into a new set. Visit Reflux page for more info.


    Where the heck is?...
    • ...stance bar/pet bar?
      Its switched off. You may recativate it via Bartender options.
      You can find bartender icon in lower right corner of your screen, on titan panel. You can also use /bartender command or find the settings via blizzard interface menu.

    • ...my experience bar/reputation bar/map location lable?
      Are texted on the Titan panel. X-Perl Explorer setup uses Experience plug in, while X-Perl Raider does Reputation. You can always activate one or another to be shown at same time.

    • ...micromenu?
      Right top of Titan Panel, next to clock.


    • ...bags?
      If you are not used for [b]-key, use button on Titan panel.

    • ...chat buttons?
      Just outside your screen. If you want them just move chat frame a little and you will see them. I dont need them as EasyCopy addon allows scrolling chat with mouse wheel

  • I think there is something wrong with target of target and target of target of target and my pets target and all those are sorta overlaping each other...
    Make sure you did not skip Step of the instalation paragraph.

  • How to fill up the round button bars?
    Right click round button in upper row (menu button)
    Drag and drop skills from your spell book into lower row as normal action bar.
    Close bar by right click menu button or by using spell from submenu (the lower bar)
    For more information about Lunar sphere visit the addon Website

  • I wish raid frames [insert random request]...
    VuhDo addon homepage

  • There is something wrong with the circled bars, they all are overlaping each other and I cannot find my way into them
    Thats Lunar bug in 3.3, that openes some bars when you log in. Hopefully it will get fixed soon. By now, you just have to close them manually or try to reload UI.

  • Titan bar on top on my screen got a black hole...
    It's not permanent. Reload UI once and its gone forever.

  • I have filled up Lunar bars, logged off and when I am logged back all the circles are in the middle of my screen and all buttons data is lost
    Let me guess, you have tried to place your equipment sets into Lunar?
    From author of Lunar Shpere:
    Originally Posted by Moongaze

There is an issue with trying to get the equipment set's "item count" and we're crashing because of that. I just got that error while doing some tests, looked at your error log and I see that you are suffering from the same error. Once I turned off the count for that menu button, the issue went away.
    I fixed the code for version 1.08 ... [...]
  • I am using a different resolution in game, will this UI fit into it?
    Resolution configuration is included into package. You will get the resolution needed for the UI once install the WTF folder. This may cause your game viewport to twist a bit. Use monitor configuration to correct the edges.
    If you dont get it make sure you have been using the correct WTF folder from the package.

  • Whole game turned to be very pale. Give me back my old colors!
    You Have got my personal color gamma configuration together with the package. To set back your old gamma use Blizard video settings.

  • Why can I not track more than 1-2 quests or achivements?
    Because chinchilla did resize the quest tracking frame. To fit it your taste:
    • right click minimap
    • go Quest Tracker tab
    • check Enable
    • configurate the quest tracker on your taste

  • There are so many things to configurate, cant you make interface that I can just download and use?...
    Practically it is impossible to please everyone. I tried to make the UI useable by any class but I cannot satisfy all players tastes. I left a lot of room for customization. And I hope you will enjoy moving things a little around to fit your taste while enjoying the general idea.

    Have fun!

Why are there 2 zone for buffs ? What does left buff side and right buff side represent ?
Left is player buffs/debuff, right is target buffs/debuffs.
Both are split in two rows: Upper is buffs, lower is debuffs. For target if friendly is same as player. If unfriendly - reversed.

My problem is this: I cannot seem to get the X-Perl skin to come up in KGPanels as just a simple square I can edit on my own.

Pre organized layouts leave me with little flexibility. I'd like to be able to move certain elements like the minimap or recount squares should I choose to. It will still have a similar style as your UI, but the items will be moved or size changed etc.

Simply put I can't seem to find where you managed to pull the background graphic for X-Perl from (black and grey gradient thing). I thought it used to be default in my KGPanels, however it's not there. And yes, I have spent my fair share on Google trying to figure this out on my own. >< Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

(P.S. sorry for the novel length of the question/explanation)

Also: been using KGPanels for about a year and have 9 saved profiles with about 13 dif. layouts. So completely uninstalling KGPanels and wiping off all saved variables isn't my first choice if you can understand. ><
Be welcome, you can find graphics in interface/addons/textures directory.
All panels graphics are drawn by me, while they alike x-perl style. Together with map and minimap icon skins.

Lawura,

I just did the fresh install and everything seems to be working except IceHud. It works but instead of the bars filling correctly (or emptying ) they go off angle and act weird:


See how the health bends out instead of smoothly flowing down.

Also the top kg panel has a border on the left i can figure out...lol

EDIT: NVM it needed about 7 updates...lol All is fine now =D

Hello, gothicknight
Thank you for your feedback.
UI does not support 1440x900 resolution at the moment and I did not plan to add more resolutions than I have put up now.
I do not have a widescreen on my own to run tests. each time I have updates for UI I have to borrow screen from my husband and that cost me already enough troubles =)

I have shared UI with intention to show what and how things can be done. As myself I had a long journey finding UI that will give me good visability and functionality in my raids.

I have had some feedbacks from users that have managed to fit the UI into a different resolution other than those I support.
I am sure you can do as well, and the package will be a big help to you against opotunity startung all out from scratch.

Start with installing UI for the supported widescreen and see what you will need to change. Not much shall be nessesary.
If you cannot find out in addons on your own, I am almost always here to answer your questions.

Regards,
Lawura

I have tried to do it myself, but it looks all distorted when i stretch it.

Thanx .

I am sure this has been asked, and if so i am sorry, but are there any plans to support other resolutions. I run 1440x900 and when i load the UI (with the WS WTF and WS reflux /) it doesn't stretch out.
I have tried to do it myself, but it looks all distorted when i stretch it.

Thanx .

Re: Finally, my UI has landed!

For wide screen this is how I do to fit panels:
note: you probably will need some other addons to be moved. I hope you can figure out that.
- take one pannel. Take Bottom2. Make sure it allignes to center. It does by default unless you changed anything.
- choose a good Y size, so the bars will end to be a good size, yet it does not cover half of your screen. 12-17% shall be good size for WS (did you know you could set size in %?)
- give this panel such x widtth so the sphere on texture look actually circular more or less. You may use lunar bar to do the comparation if your eye is not sharp for shapes.
- align Bottom2 to x0 and y to bottom of your screen
- set same X-width and Y-position to remaining BottomX panels as Bottom2
- move Bottom1 and Bottom3 to the sides of Bottom2. You will get the default Normal Screen pannel. Now your job is to fill up the gabs.
- widen skada and chat pannels. Make chat pannel to partly overlay Buttom1 (in order to widen the chat underlay) or make additional window if you need it for any purpose to left of default chat underlay. You may also duplicate chat pannel and do both.
- You shall be set by now. Adjust positions of the addons. Move skada, Chinchilla, lunar, chat frames, MBF. Adjust Bartender. You may need to change the sizes of bars for lunar and MBF scale.

PS: I am phisically unable to suppor 1920x1080. My screen is too little to set this resolution into use. Sorry.

Hope you will get there, enjoy!

There is only one major problem I'm having, I use 1920x1080 WS.
I figured that I'd have to do some moving of KG panels to make things work but I am having a problem getting the panels to overlay each other properly.
It's between the Chat Panel and the Bottom 1 panel and the Skada and the Bottom 2. Can't seem to get to fit quite right
Any advice to make this easier or will there eventually be support for 1920x1080?
Awesome looking besides my own ineptness!

I belive the best for you would be to adress the question to Sunn, he might give you some tips or maybe even a piece of code, like a macro or something that will set transparancy to zero and/or back when you hit it, or something similar.

Anyhow, thank you for your feedback. Hope you solve this problem of yours and enojy the game with the UI.

Regards,
Lawura

PS: IF you get the solution I would be very glad to know it =)
Hi Lawura, thanks for replying!

I went to the curse.com page for Sunn Art, and I found out how to hide the entire UI for the purposes of taking a screenshot.

You bind Alt+Z to Sunn Art in the keybindings, works like a charm.

Also just want to say again I love your UI. I can't imagine using another. My resolution is 1400x900 and it still looks great! Just messed with XPerl a bit and I was set. I'm looking forward to when you have time to update for my resolution though.

Take care!
