FauxMazzle Beta
Version: 1.0.0 Beta 9
by: Fizzlemizz [More]
For most designated [wide] resolutions up to 1920x1200.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*** FauxMazzle and Warlords of Draenor Beta:
Blizzard won't be enabling addons in the beta until later in the cycle (link to forum post by Zarhym). After that time I will create a WoD beta page for FauxMazzle when I can find enough compatible addons to make it worthwhile.

I look foward to your feedback.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Many thanks to the generosity of Elcarath for allowing 3 very cool skins to be added to this project

Changed in Beta 9
*** Requires a re-FauxMazzling (/fm or /fauxmazzle) of each character. ***
***
These changes have been tested as best I can with a single monitor. ***
***
The screenshots have also been updated. ***
Changes:
  • Should now support most designated [wide] screen resolution up to 1920x1200.
  • Changed the methods for anchoring, sizing, aligning, parenting and scaling the major components of FauxMazzle.
  • Major overhaul of the unit frame configuration to allow for better display and scaling (current and future).
  • Changed the proportioning of the background art so your pets are no longer in danger of toppling off the castle tower and turning party member 1 into a bloody spot atop the ramparts.
  • Improved click targeting for unit frames.
  • HUD now scales.
  • Re-aligned/sized the chat windows to maximise their viewing area.
  • You can click the clipboard icons (top-right of General chat and the Combat Log) to allow you to select and copy (Ctrl-C) text from their respective chat frames.
  • The time display is now a button that when clicked changes to the default Blizzard time button (and a close button) so you can set alarms and countdown timers.
  • Player Druid mana bar is now horizontal at the bottom of the status bar stack.
  • I've disabled unchecking of the Chat, DART and DUF addons but these will most likely come back at a later date once things have settled down.
  • Lots of tweeks (some visual changes may not be included in the new screenshots).
  • Removed Chinchilla minimap addon.
  • Latest version of Addons included.
End of changes.

What is FauxMazzle?
FauxMazzle is a look and feel tribute to MazzleFizz's once great MazzleUI that sadly didn't make it out of the Burning Crusade.

What do you get?
  • Background textures that although not Mazz's, I consider are a reasonable aproximation. If you have the textures from the original MazzleUI (including those from other authors that were part of the pack), they should also work with FauxMazzle. If you do have Mazzlefizz's original textures please DO NOT publish/upload/share them, Mazzlefizz was very specific about the use of his code and art.
  • 3 additional skins from the original compilation, courtesy of Elcarath (see the screenshots).
  • An in-game configuration dialog for the "configurable" addons listed.
  • The ability to choose your own replacement addons (which you will have to configure yourself).
  • The ability to switch off/on configuration of individual addons should you want to make and preserve your own changes or play around and then re-apply the default settings.
  • The joy of once again seeing a cool MazzleUI style layout without hours (and hours and ....) of fiddling around.
  • The ability to have this quick, easy setup for all your characters new and old.

How do I use FauxMazzle?
  • Download FauxMazzle
  • Exit the game.
  • Rename or move elsewhere the WTF folder at [Drive]:\[Programs Files]\World of Warcraft\WTF.
  • Move elsewhere all the folders (or at least the ones not on the list below) from [Drive]:\[Programs Files]\World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons\.
  • Unzip the FauxMazzle .zip file and copy the newly extracted addons to the folder [Drive]:\[Programs Files]\World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons\.
  • Start the game and at the character selection screen press the "AddOns" button (lower left corner) and check the "Load out of date AddOns" box (the first time you run FauzMazzle configuration tool (/FM) you will be warned to do this even if you have already done so).
  • Enter the world and type /FM . The configuration window should have boxes ticked for the addons you have installed.
  • Check/Uncheck boxes for the addons you do/don't want configured.
  • Press the Gears button and let FauxMazzle grind into place a bright new interface for your character to take on the world (of Warcraft).

Where's my game menu and where are my bags?
  • Move the mouse to the right hand side of your screen just above the background artwork and your MicroMenu will appear.
  • Move the mouse just above MicroMenu and your bags will appear.

Suggested Aditional Addons that may someday be included in FauxMazzle.
Dates are in DD/MM/YYYY notation:

Beta 9 - 8/7/2014
  • Should now support any designated [wide] screen resolution up to 1920x1200 (1440x900 seems to be off the table ATM).
  • Changed the method for anchoring, sizing, aligning, parenting and scaling the major components of FauxMazzle.
  • Major overhaul of the unit frame configuration to allow for better display and scaling (current and future).
  • Changed the proportioning of the background art so your pets are no longer in danger of toppling off the castle tower and turning party member 1 into a bloody spot atop the ramparts.
  • HUD now scales.
  • Re-aligned/sized the chat windows to maximise their viewing area.
  • Improved click targeting for unit frames.
  • You can click the clipboard icons (top-right of General chat and the Combat Log) to allow you to select and copy (Ctrl-C) text from their respective chat frames.
  • The time display is now a button that when clicked changes to the defaul Blizzard time button (and a close button) so you can set alarms and countdown timers.
  • Player Druid mana bar is now horizontal at the bottom of the status bar stack.
  • I've disabled unchecking of the Chat, DART and DUF addons but these will most likely come back at a later date.
  • Lots of tweeks.
  • Removed Chinchilla minimap addon.
End of changes.

Beta 8a - 3/6/32014
Fixed an error being thrown when adjusting the BNToastFrame when configuring in 1920x1080 resolution.

Beta 8 31/5/2014
  • Added Answering Machine.
  • Moved all achievement frames and PowerBarAlt above the the target cave.
  • Update to the latest addons.

Beta 7 - 6/5/2014
  • Removed a mouse click dead zone just above the action bar/minimap background.
  • Added a slash command parameter to set out-of-combat alpha for the PLAYER health/mana half of the HUD. /fm bga0 to /fm bga9 will set how visible the player portion of the HUD is when not in combat. /fm bga0 = invisible, /fm bga5 = 50% visible up to /fm bga9 = fully visible .
  • Widened chat frame 2 (combat log).
  • Changed the format of the player level/class text. This should reduce the overlap for DKs with longer names especially now we will be leveling to 100.
  • Character based artwork. The individual artwork chosen when /FMing a character should be set each time that character enters the world. If you set individual backgrounds for some but not all characters then the characters that have NOT been configured will use the background of the last character to enter the world.
  • Moved the AchievementAlertFrame up above the target cave.

Beta 6 - 27/1/2014
  • Added a Mazzle style HUD and removed IceHUD (you will need to either remove the two IceHUD folders from the wow\Interface\Addons folder or disable IceHUD).
  • Changed the mechanism for clamping the background artwork.
  • Moved the DUF class bars and combo/anticipation points from their respective unit frames to the bottom of the new HUD.

Beta 5 - 3/1/2014
  • Updated RatingBuster conifugration.
  • Added and configured the BNToast frame.
  • Added and configured Quartz.
  • Added Recount.
  • Changed MoveAnything configuration.
  • Added Omen.
  • Aded Smartbuff.
  • Added options to re-position the Blizzard quest tracker frame.
  • Changed IceHUD configuration.
  • Added several addons that don't get configured.

Beta 4 - 23/12/2013
  • Elcarath has kindly allowed me to include his Blood Elf, Draenei and Orc skins, available via /FM.
  • Added options to enable/disable colouring and or flashing of the background while in combat.
  • Adjusted bag and micromenu for new shop button.
  • Added a message for new installations to remind people to check "Out of date Addons" before using /FM.

Beta 3 - 1/12/2013
  • Moved party buff/debuff frames to avoid timer collision with status bars. Requires /FM Once.
  • Modified positions of trinketmenu in 1920x1080 resolution. Requires /FM per character.

1440x900 doesn't show up on my list, the closest I can display (and configure for) is 1366x768 or 1360x768.

Hrmm ok. I do have those 2 within my resolution list when I look under system. Either of those 2 should be okay. I do thank you for the help and greatly appreciate it

I think the reason most people avoid AutoBar is that it's a hybrid of Ace 3 and the way-out-of-date Ace2 libraries and it's showing signs of stress because of it (I can't get the level 90 Health pots to show on it for example even though they are listed in the item file).
if that's the case I'm gonna be a sad panda (or dwarf) when it completely breaks, it has to be my favorite addon

and I apologise, I was only suggesting adibags, I know it must be frustrating when people continuously offer their opinion on changes to something you worked so hard on. Fact I used arkinventory for a couple years, then switched to adibgas after I saw the improvement in performance it gave as per the amount of ram my UI used.

Regardless I will be using your UI now until it is no more.

As for adibags , you are quite welcome to delete the ArkInventory files from the addon folder and replace it with adibags and just uncheck the ArkInventory check box on the FauxMazzle setup window . That's why the setup window is designed like it is (use the addons you prefer, admittedly your milage may vary ). It will mean deleting the AI files (or not selecting them when you copy) with each update but as you're already there when you copy/paste the update, it shouldn't be a biggy.

Have fun

please, PLEASE, PPUUHHLLEEAASSEE don't quit wow until they pull the plug. I hav been searching for a solid mazzle replacement since mine stopped working. Have tried a few and this one feels the most comforting to me, thanks alot.

P.S I wish more people would use autobar in their ui's it is such an awesome mod, thanks for including it.

Edit- one suggestion I would make is to have a look at adibags bag addon. Arkinventory is a wonderfully customized addon but last I checked it is a bit of a ram hog. Adibags is fairly customizable and is very light as far as memory use goes (Last I checked.)

I'll have a look see, I might have made a start on this one.
Thank you, I appreciate it :-D
If you haven't let me know how to use /fm from a different resolution, and I'll work on getting it right for ya

Edit: I went and changed the code to allow 1600x900 to be a valid resolution. Using the standard fauxmazzle button, everything aligns fairly well, save the unitframes and recount, which I was able to adjust pretty easily. If you want, I can email my config to you if you want to use it as a baseline.

If you want to buy me a monitor that supports that resolution sure . I'm not sure how far the background images can stretch before looking distorted thus requiring a new larger set..

A few of the addons are no longer maintained but I'm using them because they still work and I know them (or at least know what I'm expecting from them). As this project progresses I might move to other up-to-date addons or even write my own.

My first foray into lua (or any sort of addon configuration) was bringing DUF back to life and between that, resurrecting DART and building FauxMazzle the concept of writing my own replacements is a lot less daunting.
