nUI InvisiSkin

InvisiSkin for nUI


This is an alternate Dashboard Skin for Spiel2001's nUI Interface Suite.
Tested and should work with most resolutions.

Please first read below how to use this skin.

Thanks to Spiel2001 for developing this amazing UI Suite.


To use this skin:
  1. Exit WoW
  2. Download and install the most recent version of nUI if you have not already as you would any other addon. You should unzip the contents of the download file into your Interface\AddOns directory
  3. Download and install this skin as you would any other addon and unzip it into the Interface\AddOns directory as well.
    After downloading and installing both mods, you should have both an Interface\AddOns\nUI directory and an Interface\AddOns\nUI_InvisiSkin directory
  4. Run WoW and log in. Before selecting a character to play, click on the "AddOns" button in the lower left corner of the screen and enable the nUI_InvisiSkin addon. You can return to using the default nUI dashboard at any time by disabling nUI_InvisiSkin.
  5. Select your character and enter the world. nUI will automatically replace the default dashboard with the InvisiSkin skin if it is enabled.


DEPENDING ON YOUR CURRENT VERSION ON nUI YOU MAY OR MAY NOT SEE A LARGE BLACK BAR AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN.... IF YOU HAVE THE BLACK BAR READ ON


This is caused by the WorldFrame being moved to compensate for nUI being at the bottom of the screen.
To restore the original Worldframe size (fullscreen) do the following:
  1. Locate C:\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\nUI\Main\nUI.lua
  2. CREATE A BACKUP OF THIS FILE AND SAVE IT SOMEWHERE SAFE
  3. Open the file
  4. hit Ctrl F to bring up the find dialog and find 'WorldFrame', there is only one instance of it in this file (this is on line 211)
  5. delete the whole line:
    Code:
    WorldFrame:SetPoint( "BOTTOM", nUI_Dashboard, "CENTER", 0, 0 );
    Alternatively comment it out by adding '-- ' like this
    Code:
    -- WorldFrame:SetPoint( "BOTTOM", nUI_Dashboard, "CENTER", 0, 0 );
  6. save the file


A result of moving the WorldFrame is that the CoolDown Bar and Range text are now moved down over you action bars.

The simplest way to rectify this is to use Xrystals nUI : Config [LDB] this allows you to move and scale the HUD to your preference and should resolve any issues with the HUD elements overlapping the toolbars.

However, if you wish to manually edit the .lua files for specific elements this is a fairly simple process, the great thing about this is you can edit it while WoW is OPEN, simply edit it, save it and type /nui rl to reload the UI see the new position, edit again and /nui rl until your happy with it's position:

The Cooldown bar & Cast bar can quite easily be moved, Spiel's response to a similar question can be found HERE.

But here's a few simple steps:
  1. Locate and open C:\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\nUI\Layouts\Default\HUDLayouts
  2. Choose the folder that represents your HUD set up (mine is Players/Target) - Open the folder
  3. Locate and open nUI_HUDLayout_PlayerTarget.lua (if you have a different HUD set up the PlayerTaregt bit will be different)
  4. hit Ctrl F once it's opened and find 'cooldown_bar' there is only once instance of it
  5. Under the 'anchor' section locate the line:
    Code:
    yOfs = 8,
  6. The number 8 here is the ofset amount, increase this number to move the bar up the screen. I have mine set at 75 and it sits nicely just above my top action bar.

To adjust the Range Text the process is very similar only this time you need to open the nUI_HUDSkin_PlayerTarget_Target.lua (also in the HUDLayouts folder)
This time do the following:
  1. Search for 'Range'
  2. scroll down slightly to the 'label' section
  3. locate and edit
    Code:
    yofs = -45,
  4. I found a value of yofs = 130 works well on my resolution
  5. save file and /rl WOW

Again the yofs value refers to it's vertical position and through a little trial and error you can perfect the positioning to where it best suits your style of play.
In both of these files there are also xofs values, these control the horizontal positioning so you could move these items into a corner if you choose to!

Once you have looked into these you will easily see the other elements as they are listed very similarly and are changed in the same way.

Final Tip:
Install the nUI: Config [GUI] by Kodewulf from HERE and use the setting under General to change all you action bars to mouseover. This gives an Uber clean look, but you gotta know where everything is!
CRYSTAL HACK


There is no longer a need for the crystal files originally available, you can now achieve the same affect by simply renaming the following files to prevent them from being displayed:

C:\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\nUI\Layouts\Default\Art\nUI_BevelboxBg.blp
C:\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\nUI\Layouts\Default\Art\nUI_BevelboxBorder.blp

I would suggest you rename them rather than delete them (I just added origin to the end of the file name )
Original file remains the same, but requires user to edit nUI.lua line 211 to comment out worldframe changes.

Able to rename background and border files to remove there visibility (Crystal hack)

Cool skin! I wonder why no one thought of this before! It helps make nUI look a bit more minimalistic which is great in my books!

Thanks for replying.

And I have to say, I really love the skin. Thanks for all your hard work.
Glad it's working now and glad you like it, keep you eye open for the 'crystal' files I'll be uploading later they remove all the ghosted outlines

Thanks
TC

I would firstly just check you have altered the correct file again (and that it saved), occasionally on some peoples machines WoW appears in the program files directory as well as directly on the C:\ drive it's unlikely but just check, because you need to amend the correct file.

If that's not the case, the only thing I can think of is that perhaps some other addon is making the change to worldframe, make sure you don't have any other nUI skins active at the same time.

Let me know if any of this helps, if it doesn't please send me pm me and we'll see if I can do anything for you.

Good Luck

Any reason why it stays like this?

I'm pleased your happy with it

I made this for myself primarily as I had also always wanted a transparent version of nUI, I'm glad I wasn't the only one thinking that!

Is there anyway to avoid this or to replace those cooldowntimer placements. I've been trying a lot but can't seem to solve this.
Deleting the line from the nUI.lua returns the worldframe (game screen) to it's default size.
This line is required with all other skins (Which is why you hopefully made a back up before deleting) as this will need to be restored isf you revert back to the standard or any other opaque skin.

The Cooldown bar can quite easily be moved but does required some more editing of an lua file. Spiel's response to a similar question can be found here: http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...d.php?p=207898

But here's a few simple steps:
  1. Locate and open C:\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\nUI\Layouts\Default\HUDLayouts
  2. Choose the folder that represents your HUD set up (mine is Players/Target) - Open the folder
  3. Locate and open nUI_HUDLayout_PlayerTarget.lua (if you have a different HUD set up the PlayerTaregt bit will be different)
  4. hit Ctrl F once it's opened and find cooldown_bar there is only once instance of it
  5. Under the 'anchor' section locate the line
    Code:
    yOfs = 8,
  6. The number 8 here is the ofset amount increase this number to move the bar up the screen. I have mine set at 75 and it sits nicely just above my top action bar.

The great thing about this is you can edit it while WoW is OPEN!
Simply edit it and save it and type /rl to reload the UI see the new position, edit again and /rl until your happy with it's position.

Hope that helps.


PS. If you want to move it sideways as well just edit the
Code:
xOfs = 0,
just above it

PPS if you set the action bars to mouse over you get an even cleaner look! (Just make sure you remember where everything is first!)
