Improved Blizzard UI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.6.0
by: kaytotes [More]

Known issues can be tracked / submitted HERE.

Improved Blizzard UI is an attempt to improve the default Blizzard interface. This has been customized to how I personally like my UI set up. There is some very basic configuration in game but things like positioning and scale of items still needs modifying directly in the LUA.

Only 1920x1080 and 2560x1440 are supported / tested out of the box so some other resolutions may need tweaks.

Localized for enGB / enUS / deDE (ben2k1690) / ruRU (A few strings missing). See end of page for information if you would like to help localise.

focus frame positioning issue

Noticed that the focus frame has some wonky behaviour.

1. initially the focus frame floats over the chat and player frame, with improved blizzard ui styling (class colored name bar)
2. changing the focus frame to "larger" jumps the focus frame down over the chat. focus frame loses class colored name bar.
3. changing the focus frame back to the smaller frame shrinks it smaller than in step one, and still no class colored name bar. Still floating over the chat.

In all scenarios, the focus frame is not movable just like the player and target frame. Makes sense to not have them movable, since they're already in a great position, but the focus frame position should either be movable or in a better spot by default.

screenshots

PS. love the ui

Tweaking with this should help. The 1.1 is the current scale.

Ok, so there's no way to move it in game like with the normal UI? (the little box to the left of the party frames).

Thanks for the answer. I'll check that out.

I'm quite fond of the fat artifact bar so I'm likely going to keep it that way or at least make it easier to config.

All the font references can be found in these files.

Again I think I'll try and get round to making this a config option this weekend but raiding is taking up a bunch of time
