Btex (for 'Bottom TEXture') is a very lightweight addon for World Of Warcraft providing Background texture at the bottom of the screen.
It contains a package of pre-made skins, a simple menu for settings skins, texture height,width,transparency,colors, positions, viewport,etc ..

What can it do? :
-----------------
- Put a texture of your choice on the bottom of the screen via menu options (use /bx menu or /btex menu),
- Set height/width/transparency/position/colors/layer of your texture,
- 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,
- Work in any resolution,
- Low memory usage & standalone addon (no libs or dependency are needed).

Ready to use skins :
--------------------
The following skins are packaged and are ready to use via the option menu:
- Dark Shadow serie, Simple Black, Fade Black, Red Fury, Warcraft Classic, Ice Dragon, Ice Dragon remake (credits to Xaphiroth), Ice Dragon remake with pet bar(credits to

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

Actually, I did some reading and Figured out I have to do it on Photoshop. So I made a simple box style texture, but I cannot seem to make it opaque in anyway shape or form, it always shows up and perfectly transparent.

Diff Char

Been looking at btex. Like what i see. I have a question can these be set for differant charaters? Or is it you set one and use it for all.

Also the top pic is a sweet background. What one is it?? I been looking and cant find it.

Red face Ui Settings

Hi,

I'm trying to get my UI to look like this guys

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbH_quwXO-U

but after playing around with the settings, I got very frustrated. Is there some kind of walk through or possible suggestions that someone can help me with to make it look like this?

Thanks.

Hello,

I like btex and I like the demonic interface. But it doesn't fit to my 16:9 screen so I have to stretch it. But this doesn't look good.

Now I've copied it into ps and redesigned it a little bit. But now i have the problem with the transparancy. If I create a mask and safe the tga as 32bit it doesn't work. I still see a white border on the top.

What's my Problem?

Multiples

I see half of the support skins are broken down into a few files; is there a way in Btex to load up multiple files?


Edit: Might help if I read what you wrote in the UI
