ArkiveUI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v4.2.0
by: Arkive [More]

-

This will be the last official update to the UI for the forseeable future.


Includes automated in-game setup.



7/20/11 - In case you missed the bold text above, this will be the last update to the UI for the forseeable future. I quit playing the game about 7 months ago or so and have decided now is as good a time as any to hang the hat up.

I will keep the forums running and will check them regularly, helping answer questions when possible:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------


History:

I was a long time user of MazzleUI, another compilation hosted on WowInterface. When 2.2 hit and bugs plagued it (for a while), I decided to craft my own compilation for myself and my wife (and friends). I've started from scratch with my preferred list of addons and tailored it to my liking, but you'll still find most of the layout to be HEAVILY Mazzle inspired. I loved it every second I used it, so if you're reading this Mazzle, thanks If you're not a fan of that UI, or prefer minimalist UI's, this probably isn't for you

The setup is very easy. You'll find instructions in the root of the zip file. I've created my own in-game installer to handle the profile-specific and the enabling/disabling of class-specific addons with more features to be added soon.

The UI includes a very basic button layout, but there's tons of space in the button panels to do whatever you like. Also, the compilation doesn't rely on Dominos, so if you prefer Bartender or another bar mod, knock yourself out Also, you'll find that most of the keys around the left side of the keyboard have had their function mapped to the Ctrl key (such as Ctrl-C to open the character window). This will allow you to make better use of those keys for combat situations instead of wasting them on non-critical functions like sitting.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------


I understand that not everyone wants the whole kitchen sink. If you gave it a try and found that it was a bit much for you, but saw a few things you liked, I hope you'll download those authors' mods and continue using them. To help you identify the mods that make up the compilation, I'll include a fairly complete list (minus libs) with basic decriptions:

Looks great from what I can tell ...
Unfortunately the max. resolution on my laptop is 1280x800, and tho. widescreen, everything is way too small at minimum UI scale (and I like small).

Can't wait to try it back home at 1680x1050.
*Edit* Tried it out at 1680x1050 and I really really like it ... I've used Mazzle for so long that I've found it nearly impossible to switch even though it seems a bit outdated & I hate the Discord unit frames. You seem to have taken a lot of things that made Mazzle great & given it a nice face life (with Pitbull!).
My one complaint remains... a lot of stuff is still very small! I checked your SS and noticed you are at 1920x1200! It would be really awesome if you were to release a future version, to take a look at making the UI scale a bit better to lower resolutions.
Anyways, great work!

Sweet UI. After the patch I figured that nothing could match Mazzle's in efficiency and looks. Looks like I'm wrong. Keep up the good work on it!

I'm playtesting it right now.

Heh, thanks. I wouldn't say it ranks with the customization of Mazzle, but it does what I need it to (and just as importantly, it does what my wife needs it to so she keeps playing )

hi..
think the mod it great but do have a few chat issues with text size as it always resets it self to your large 15p size which i find far to small to read unless i'm about 6 "'s from the screen..is there anyway to have your mod sets the ui up to a bigger text,
also as i'm new to a few of these mods..i also seemtimes find that the channel's i need for my guild just go from my screen and can type in to them but i can't see them on my screen ? any ideas

I've had several folks mess around with chat text sizes and it's never changed back on them. the only time that would happen is if you changed it one toon and then logged in with another since the chat text sizes are stored per-character.

Have you added any mods other then the ones in the compilation? Have you tried to preserve any of your mods savedvariables (or other character files like chat-cache, etc)? If so, those could be bugging it. Are you using Vista? I've seen vista do retarded things depending on whether account control is enabled and how you ran WoW at the time. No one else has reported this bug, including my wife who has manually adjust her text size on more then 6 differnt characters with no reversion (and believe me, I'd have heard about it )

The autobar included was the latest stable release. The one on the Ace SVN is fairly usable, but I have some issues with it, so using this one made the most sense. I'm not sure what you mean by using autobar to adjust your sound. Are you sure you don't mean the sound mod on Fubar instead? If so, it may just need an update. It's easy enough to do, just snag the Ace Updater from www.wowace.com and when you run it, it'll show you all the Ace mods you have installed that are updatable using the program. You can choose to update some or all. Very straightforward. do make sure you choose "With Externals" when updating though.

I have noticed something as I have been going on and questing. My addon folder size (which you have helpfully placed next to the frame rate display on the right side of your UI) seems to increase in size steadily. It never really goes down in size, and it seems to go hand in hand with stuttering right after I kill a monster. It happens in other places as well, and its slowing my game down.

I thought perhaps it was the mod libraries storing information.

Have you noticed such a thing? It makes loading and exiting the game extremely slow as well.

I have had the same stuttering issues, along with the long game exit times as well. In addition, I am unable to take many of the 'wanted sign' quests unless I disable mobmap.

I haven't looked at the memory size really, so I couldn't comment on that. It seems to hang around 256 to the best of my recollection however.

I really like this UI, but I sure would like to eliminate the hangs and stuttering that seem inherent to it.

I went ahead and re-downloaded and reinstalled the UI. For now, at least, it appears the hitching has gone away. I still have the error with mobmap and trying to take wanted poster quests.

My memory usage now drifts between 45-60. I really wonder what addon caused it to get to such a bloated size before?

I don't know that much about them, so I have no idea which ones will try to cache data.

Honestly, I don't want any addon I use to try to store ANY new data.... at all.

I disabled mobmap as well, mostly because I didn't find it that useful to me.

But I don't want to reinstall my addon pack every time it gets too 'big.' Mostly because I have it tweaked just like I like it.

I wish I knew what particular mod it was causing the problem and I'd disable it.

Mine is steady at 60, and after I kill something, it hitches and goes back up to 90-110. Its crazy.

I want to say that in all other ways, this UI is exceptional. Except for this one thing, I could not be more pleased with it. I hope Arkive is still around to support it and help with some troubleshooting!

To address both of your concerns, the addon memory usage will grow as you play because many of the addons are load-on-demand. So you might notice a big lag when you click on a quest in nQuestLog and Lightheaded's quest info opens for the first time (and your memory goes up). This is because it's loading it for the first time. I have also attributed long exit times solely to Recount. If you open Recount (Fubar icon on right side) and flush data, I think you'll find it exits within a normal period of time. Why it does this I don't know, but it seems to relate to playing BG's and tracking data for people outside your server. Other REcount users have reported similar phenomena. As a note, I am working on an updated version. Minor aesthetic changes, addition of some minor PvP/arena/BG mods, a few tweaks, and a complete update of all mods.

I am absolutely stoked to hear this Arkive!

Looking forward to your new version.

By the way, have you considered making a standard resolution ratio version? My brother would like to utilize this UI, but he doesn't have a fancy 1920 X 1200 monitor like me.
