Rosoaa's UI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v3.1
by: Rosoaa [More]

UI Goal:

  • This UI is meant to be extremely informational while being presented in a logical way. Your eyes need to be focused on the center of your screen and not in the top left corner or any corner for that matter. Therefore, that is where I place the more important UI elements.
  • Organization and symmetry of UI elements are very important to a quality UI as well. Having the correct balance of these are what I strive for.
  • The user should have the freedom over the UI elements. It shouldn't be up to the creator where things must be placed or what things must be hidden/shown. There needs to be a level flexibility between the creator and user.
  • The UI should look and perform at the appropriate level. Certain UI elements shouldn't look too nice. Otherwise, there will be unnecessary distractions or things will stand out too much that shouldn't, but on the other hand things shouldn't look like they are not emphasized enough.
  • This UI is meant for all classes, roles, and play-styles.
  • v3.1 is meant for widescreen monitors with an aspect ratio of 8:5 or 16:10. This means that my UI will look its best on 1200x800, 1440x900, 1680x1050, and 1920x1200 monitor resolutions. If your monitor is not one of these resolutions you may need to move some things around. The goal is to eventually have a version suitable for all resolutions.

Installation Guide:
(You must follow theses steps for this UI to look and function the way I have it setup)

  1. Rename or delete your Interface, WTF, and Fonts folders (for a fresh installation or in case you want your old UI back).
  2. Drag or copy the Fonts, Interface, and WTF folders into your World of Warcraft folder.
  3. Open your WTF folder and rename the following folders in your WTF folder "YOUR ACCOUNT NAME", "YOUR SERVER NAME", and "YOUR CHARACTER NAME" to your actual account name, server name, and character name (make sure your account name is in all caps).
  4. Make sure all addons are on. And the load out of date box is checked.
  5. Login to WoW. You should now see the prompt to load Rosoaa UI settings. Select Yes. Your UI will reload.
  6. Go to the video options. Select the resolution and video settings that fits your computer. Also select your preferred sound settings. I suggest taking a look at the addon TweakWoW for addition video/UI settings.
  7. Setup your keybinds/macros. You can skip this setup if you saved your old UI. Go into your old UI's WTF folder and copy and paste your macro-cache files and your bindings-cache files into your new WTF file.

Addons v3.1:
This is not a list of mods contained in the UI (if you're looking for that download the UI and see for yourself), but a more in depth explanation of specific addons that many users probably have never used, so the user can have a better experience.

  • Many UI tasks are automated or have shortcuts through two addons called wIn1 and !OverSimplified. See their addon pages for a better understanding and configuration. There is a list of UI slash commands below.
  • Buffet: The addon Buffet creates two macros that can be accessed in the blizzard macro frame (/macro). One is for health consumables and the other is for mana consumables. Buffet will change the macros as needed to provide you with food and drink out of combat, potions and stones in combat, and bandages on shift (HP macro only, of course).
  • StealYourCarbon: This addon is a reagent restocker addon. When you visit a vendor who sells an item you have told SYC to buy, it buys it for you. Never run out of water again! See the interface options for configuration of your pleasing.
  • Professions Database / Ludwig: These 2 addons attempt to make minimizing WoW a minimum. Ludwig is an in game database of every item in the game. Type /ludwig to see the huge list. Professions Database gives the user access to every profession, so you always know what craft-able item requires which materials. To access Professions Database go to the professions tab and click on the red panel in the lower right hand corner.


_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Hai!

I'm just having a little trouble with the action bars...

In the box there's 3 buttons appearing, and there's one bar separated, wich is the stealth bar, I'm not thinking it's supposed to be that way, I can't move then or anything, so it's basically 3 useless buttons in the box to the right of the chat, and my stealth bar slashed up in the middle of the screen.

The addons skinner also doesn't seem to work, cause get a list up with diffrent addons loading, but the skin is not found in the SkinMe directory.
These are the following:
Cartographer; Bagnon; SW_Stats; Bagnon_Forever; HatTrick; Postal

Also, the /mb load says ; "Error ; Rosoaa not found"

The mb profile is Rosoaa, just like that. ROSOAA or rosoaa won't work. Exactly Rosoaa then type /console reloadui. Skinner works fine, but it can't skin those mods that are listed because they are separate mods. Skinner isn't compatible with those mods, therefore it doesn't skin them. In all interfaces there are action bar numbers. The stealth bar is action bar 7, which in my UI is below the unit frames. I suggest removing the bars from it by holding shift then dragging them off. Type /bongos to see the configuration menu, you can move the bars and make them not visible if you want to. In my UI I use action bar 4, 8, and 9. Action bar 4 is right next to the chat frame on the left. You need to drag the spells off that bar and replace them with the ones you want. My UI doesn't do that for you You also need to do that for the other action bars 8 and 9.

Hi!, first i'd like to say damn nice UI, tho i still haven't tested it all, but the /mb load Rosoaa or rosoaa or even ROSOAA only replies that "ERROR, Rosoaa not found." same thing with everything else i decide to throw at it. now the version i am using is the latest one you've uploaded. that's a minor problem i admit, but still gotta tell if you intended to give out a profile to use

cheers

Just wondering are the buff bars black? If so don't worry about it. The profiles have been confusing me I am never sure what happens on your computer thanks for this post. Control S and M turn off WoW music fyi.

I did exactly as instructions said and /mb load Rosoaa does not work. Also the skinner mod doesnt work. Is my chat window supposed to be floating ?? It looks like it's supposed to be in one of the black windows, but it's floating a few inches above.

I love the UI, so a fix would be much appreciated!

Edit: LOL just realized that half my UI is off screen. How do I fix this? I play in windowed mode at 1280X1024 and did exactly as you instructed =(

What version did you download? If you downloaded the 1024x768 version then yes 1/4 of the screen will be off to the side. Make sure you dl the 1280x1024 version. Are your buff bars black? If so then don't worry about the /mb profile. You can move the chat window, but it should be in its correct spot. Skinner doens't work? Is your character frame black or the spellbook? The message you get when you login is nothing, don't worry about that. Can you please respond back would be much app.

What version do you have? There are 2 current versions that work and I will soon be releasing another. The 2 that are currently out are for 2 different resolutions 1280x1024 and 1024x768. It doesn't matter what version you have the action bars shouldn't be different and you will still have the same spells. I wouldn't worry about that, I would just worry if you have the right version.

Patch Day

Hey guys, I am trying my best to get this UI up to date. I just checked both versions 1.4 1024x768 and 1.4 1280x1024. Both are pretty stable. In the next few days I will be updating the mods and released those 2 versions and a new layout. I have been working on a new layout and its pretty damn sick. Hope you like it New Version
