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)

broke again, not sure when but as of current .29 Nui5 the worldframe is causing the black bar again. The edits listed on the front page do not currently work either.

Red face Invisible line in Invisible man vs Invisible not working

I love this layout more then Invisible man because it has no line defining the layout area. Is there a way to take the line defining the layout away from Invisible man via commands or does it have to be updated for that? Really that's my only dislike in the Invisible man, however I did try to use the the Invisible art but still got the black box and I did edit what i thought was the correct line because it even said under it when logging in we will have to do some set up. I guess all I really want to do is remove the line defining the mod area in invisible man, If you could do that I would love you forever lol

Thanks either way it goes I will check back later for any info

Our Prayers have already been answered!!

As I was having a look around the forum I came across Xrystals AWESOME lib broker for nUI.

get it **HERE**

once installed it allows you to change all the settings for the HUD through the broker, scale, height, width and OFFSET bot Vert and Horiz

Never again need you range text, or combo, or cast bars etc be in the wrong place.

I will update the main page at some point but in the mean time, scrap all your other changes get the nUI : Config [LDB] and enjoy life as it should be

nUI_Options.hud_vOfs or 0) Code change

Hmm, I've had a play about with it for a few minutes and to be honest it doesn't appear to be changing anything!

However, I was having a similar problem yesterday whilst changing the range label position, no matter what I did nothing actually changed!

very odd goings on at the moment!

I really need to try and learn lua, because it would be great to combine all this stuff into a single InvisiSkin addon with a proper gui interface to allow you to basically do a /movers on all the other components we want to move that aren't included in nUI's standard /movers.

I'm looking at it now, I've done a fresh install of nUI's latest release to make sure I haveclean files again, and am playing with it now.

By the way that value you found is on line 707

Oh and my previous post and update can be ignored due to the fact Scott re-removed the worldframe changes!

Hey guys, sorry to have neglected you for so long.

I can confirm that the issues you experienced were due to Scott's changed to viewport, this was due to changes Blizz made during the 4.0.1 update, however since the 4.0.3 update and the new release of nUI, the original viewport (worldframe) settings have been reintroduced.

As a result you will need to either delete or comment out (by placing -- at the start of the line) the worldframe line in the nUI.lua file.

The file is found: C:\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\nUI\Main\nUI.lua

and the line you need to change is: WorldFrame:SetPoint( "BOTTOM", nUI_Dashboard, "CENTER", 0, 0 );

this is line 211 in the file and the first and only instance of worldframe in the file.

to coment in out use '-- ' (minus, minus, space)

As for the crystal files, I will relook at these now that the patches seem to have settled down.
