HixxyUIv2
A robust and compact UI for HEALERS!

いいいいいい

Hello, my name is ecide. I have been playing wow since midway through burning crusade. One of my biggest issues playing was having add-ons cluttering up my screen. I wanted to jack up my graphics and enjoy all the shiny things the game had to offer, without sacrificing any useful mods. And so I made HixxyUI. Its a compilation UI comprised of several commonly used add-ons, arranged in a way that provides as much screen real-estate as possible.

As of 2/13/2012, HixxyUI is bug free, meaning it will not crash or cause any abnormal performance issues.

いいいいいい

A year has passed since I released the first version of HixxyUI, So I decided to update it, removing old add-ons and adding a few new features that I felt were practical in both pvp and pve environments.

By request, I have made HixxyUIv2 Scalable! Unlike the first version, useable only on 1920x1200, this version works from 1440x900 and higher resolutions. Please keep in mind that it will only scale properly with wide screen displays of any resolution. Besides....why should you be using CRT's anyway?

いいいいいい

I take no credit for any mods that were used in this compilation UI. Any complaints or performance issues with the mods associated with this compilation should be redirected to their respective pages. But as i said, i use this UI myself daily, so i keep it up to date and error/bug free. HixxyUI comes with just the basics. Please feel free to add additional add-ons but note that i have not tested the compilation with any other add-ons except for the ones that come with it by default. I anticipate that most users will have other add-ons that they use, so I have added BugGrabber. This will help silence any errors that might occur, should any conflicts happen when adding your additional add-ons. You can periodically check BugGrabber by clicking on the minimap icon.

I hope you enjoy the updated HixxyUI.

いいいいいい Questions? いいいいいい

If you have any questions about the compilation, please share, Comments and criticisms welcomed.
You can also hit me up in game on my toon: ecide @ Illidan. The special character in my name is alt+0208 (using the number pad keys and not the keys above your keyboard)

いいいいいい Setup is a breeze いいいいいい

Before Setup, Set the UI Scale to the lowest point inside advanced options.

1. Create a folder in the main directory of your warcraft folder titled "uibackup". Now cut (not copy) both the "WTF" and the "Interface" folders into the backup folder. The idea is to have these folders now reside in the uibackup folder and not in the main directory of your warcraft folder.
2. Download HixxyUIv2 and Paste the files (the WTF and Interface folders) from HixxyUIv2.zip into the main directory of your warcraft folder.
3. Go into your WTF/Accounts folder and rename a few folders. This must be done in order for HixxyUIv2 to work.

ACCOUNTNAME = your wow account name
SERVERNAME = your servers name
CHARACTERNAME = your characters name

all done! Now if you want to use HixxyUI on an alt, just copy your main characters folder and paste it as a copy. rename that copy to the name of your alt character.

4. At the character selection screen, click on the add-ons button and check "Load out of date Addons".
5. After logging in, hit escape and go to the interface menu. From there you will go through all of the add-ons looking for the "profile" option. Select and load "HixxyUI" for
The add-ons listed below;

ArkInventory
Castbars
Chatter
Chinchilla Minimap
Decursive
Masque
MikScrollingBattleText
MinimapButtonFrame
Omen
Pitbull Unit Frames
Skada
Game Tab/Raid Profiles

いいいいいい

Here is a list of some add-on commands that are not listed in the interface options panel.
Be sure to load the "HixxyUI" profiles for these as well.

/BT - That is for Bartender.
/kgpanels config - That provides background placeholders.
/hb config - no profiles need to be loaded. Just wanted to list it incase you wanted to make changes to the skins i modified or add your characters skills.

Lied about Fits to screen

before you ask. yes i have done what the instructions say, and ive done over 37 ui's. your ui however is so misrepresented, my screen is 1920X1080, you ui everything is shifted down and or off screen, nothing is how its supposed to be even after checking to make sure its the right profiles. sure the ui is nice, but does not fit like stated.

needs fix

Unhappy Sad Day

I've been wanting to use this UI for awhile now (drooling over it actually) because I haven't found another like it. When my husband told me I could use the TV to get the resolution I needed I was very excited.

After about an hour of try to get the tv/monitor to recognize the computer and visa verse it had finally loaded only to have my internet cable quit working on me .

After God only knows how long I finally got it working, loaded up the UI (actually my husband instead of saving my old interface and wtf just copied over it >.<), and logged on wow. I was excited until I saw the screen was nothing like what the pictures had shown with things all over the screen. I then realized that wow updated with patch 4.1 and not 4.0.6. Q.Q.

There are only 18 mods that make up this ui, most of all these mods are used in a common raiding capacity, i just arrange them in a particular way. Lets not be quick to blame the "UI".

As i've said, if you have issues with a particular mod, visit its author page to complain or make sure that it is still compatible with the new patch 4.0.6. - try updating your mods.

also if you've added any additional mods, other then the ones used to make HixxyUI, then you cannot blame the me for your crashes as i have only vetted the mods used in creating it, aka the mods i have released it with.

i run error free daily.

maybe your crashes are not even wow related. maybe your having cooling issues, your heat sink could be clogged with dust bunnies, your graphics card could be kicking the bucket, your hdd could be failing...i mean i could go on and on.

This is awesome and exactly what I've been looking for. Sadly 1400 would still be to big for my puny monitor . The highest it goes is 1280 x 1024. Maybe my husband will let me steal his monitor lol.

Update:
My husband is going to buy me a new monitor just so I can use this UI .

Thumbs up Small Screen Resolution

Thanks gothicknight, i spoke with someone else that requested the same thing. So i will make a smaller res UI. It may variate from the original as i would not have enough real estate to cram it all in. It will take a lil bit as i only play like 2 hours a day (maybe) due to work, kids, life...
