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

Why use ace for such a small addon? Seems a bit overkill imo.
