- Use any other TGA/BLP texture file or any other 'pack' of skin,
- Display a grid to setup your interface correctly,
- Modify the 3D rendering area with viewport function,

FAQ :
-----
How do I run menu config ? type "/bx Menu" or "/Btex menu" in the chat windows.
Why the download is so big ? it's because it contain many images.
How do i load custom skins? Copy TGA or BLP files to /interface/btex/skins/ directory, and use the "custom texture" options on the top dropdown menu. Write name file without

the end "-1.tga". Exemple: for 'blabla' skin, you have 4 tga named blabla-1.tga, blabla-2.tga. Write 'blabla' in the custom name.
Do the skin support transparency ? yes. Via images files and via WOW API.
Can i use BLP file? Yes. use custom load skin, and do like with any other tga file.
Is there any PSD template i can use to make my own skin ? :Sure, just go to : http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info11906-BtexPSDforskinmaking.html I recommand using The

GIMP or if you have money Photoshop CS4.
BUT, remember to share !
How can i share my artwork ? : create an account on wowinterface then upload it here as a plugin : http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info7906-BTex.html#optional

First things first, nice add on.

Second a suggestion, you use the command /bt menu to open your options menu. Bartender uses the same command and a lot of people who use an add on like yours likely use bartender too. I know /btex menu works as well so maybe its an idea to change the info (in game as well as here) to say to use that command. Just an idea to help the *coughs* special people.

Third a question. Is there any kind of database where I can get more skins? I have looked at the few you suggested in the main description page but none of those really suit my fire mage or my UI layout. I really like the Icedragon skin but would prefer it in red with gold dragons (possibly moveable dragons too so I can fit the righthand one in the empty space Grid leaves when not raiding.). To see what I mean about my particular UI layout you can check my uploaded UI in clas specific (DyspepticUI) the screenie is currently displaying Skinner for bottom textures. Or could you possibly add a colour picker feature so we can manually change basic colours in the skins? Dont know if thats possible I'm not a mod maker myself and what I know about coding can be writen on the back of a postage stamp with lipstick.

Okay third was a question and request......
