Version: 6.0.2
by: Sharani [More]

********************
BTex version 6.0
********************

A development of Tiggy's excellent addon

Original file/addon can be found here :
http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info7906-BTex.html

What is it? :
-------------
Btex (for 'Bottom TEXture') is a very lightweight addon for World Of Warcraft providing Background texture at the bottom of the screen and was created by Tiggy.
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 Xaphiroth)
- Wall,
- White Dragon

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".
Example: 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.

Since someone else is keeping this up, here are my btex layouts from awhile back:

http://www.wowinterface.com/download...icforBTEX.html
http://www.wowinterface.com/download...icforBTEX.html

I made others, but never uploaded them since I quit using btex, and wrote an entire custom UI layout for myself.

Take care.

Hey Bornabe
I will update the links and put your psd file in the template section aswell.
I have tested them on my computer and they work fine.
Can you update your links so they point to this BTex version since Tiggy have abandon it. Im tryin to take over the addon at curse aswell but they are not the fastets in the world and i of course have to wait and see if i get any response from tiggy there aswell.

Let me know if I need to do anything to the BornabeUI BTex Skins / PSD Layout file for your update if necessary. I switched to KGPanels a while back, but can make an update for anyone who enjoys my WarCraft III styled panels.
