Altz UI for MoP  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.60
by: Paopao001, Sinaris



If you have any errors or questions,please post it in the comments.
Please support your errors with a screenshot.





Intro
Altz UI is a minimalistic compilation with in-game configuration supported. I wanted to make a UI which gives people the feeling of hiding almost all UI elements, just like after pressing Alt+Z, and that is the origin of the name. It was fisrt released at November 11, 2011. The theme of AltzUI is simplicity. It only shows necessary elements when you want to see them. Also its memory useage and CPU footprint is very low, with only 2 ~ 3mb it is able to complete most of the functionality you need. Please read the all the tips in the tutorial appearing later, it gets you started in no time. If you have any errors or questions, please post it in the comments of the addon's page in wowinterface.com. Please help by spreading the word about this UI by recommending it to your guild members and friends. Thank you.

ver5.50 is a very important update. I almost rewrite the whole addon, so please follow steps below when update.
1 Backup and clean your Interface folder.

2 Search and delete AltzUIConfig.lua and AltzUIConfig.lua.bak in WTF. You may also delete any files which name include oUF, because the unit frame mod is built in AltzUI now that you won't need them any more.

3 Unpack the package you downloaded. I replace the font of the addon with a Chinese font, which is 13.4 MB(containing Chinese and English words), so the addon seems much bigger than before, but that won't affect the memory usage so don't worry. If the text in game are display correctly, you don't need change it, otherwise you should replace the font.ttf in Interface\AddOns\Aurora\media.

4 Lo-gin the game. The new tutorial will gets you start easily. After you complete that, put other addons into the addon folder.

I wish we were getting help, I really loved this UI. Very pretty, quick install, very very clean.

Is this UI still going to be worked on? I know people get busy. But some of us kind of need help. ^_^

I have been using altz for quite some time now. But i cannot figure out how to get the raid frames (as a healer) to show more than one buff on a party member at a time. How do i make it show all the buffs and cooldowns i have used on them on the actual raid frames? I can only get it to show one icon at a time. Is it even possible to get them to show them all?

Bumping... does anyone know how to fix this? Is there a temporary place I can edit it in the .lua? Does anyone have a workaround that they have used?

I really, really love this UI. Figured out the 'aurora' question I had earlier, it seems to skin everything just fine.

The chat does move itself to the left a tiny bit when I log in, but all I have to do is click the left hide button and then click it again to pop chat out and it fixes itself. Otherwise, the font sizes and chat windows and everything stay the same. :-)

The ONLY thing I wish this had - sticky chat. I am so used to sticky chat that I am constantly sending things into the wrong channel when I type, and I have to type someone's name out over and over when I whisper them. Doing /r doesn't work.

Since I am social, that's kind of an issue for me. Does anyone have a solution for this? I checked in the Blizz options for 'social' settings and it's not in there. It's not under the AltzUI options either. Unless I am seriously missing something.

wow...

This is an amazing ui. I love the vibrant colors!!!

I just have a few things I would like to ask about.

1. Chat seems to reset itself after RL, or logout=(

2. Is it possible to resize the minimap?


Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this UI the more I use it!

I have another question - does it come with all the extra Aurora skins, or do I need to pick those up myself? I hardly know how to use them. If I add the extra skins in (like for MyRolePlay) will that break the UI appearance?
