Kait Mage UI 3  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.01
by: Kaitain1977 [More]



YouTube of the UI in action

This UI was made pre-6.0 and is now pretty much out of date and broken. Sorry for any inconvenience. There won't be any updates as I'm working on a new (and hopefully better packaged) UI.

This UI is completely unsupported, take it as is. This means I have not factored in any time to spend helping fix things that might be wrong with it. I'll help where I can, but please don't be offended if your question doesn't get a reply.

My screen resolution is 1920x1200 and my UI scale (Esc -> System -> Advanced) is set to 1.0. The layout may go weird if you don't play at that resolution and UI scale. It might go weird even if you do.

It's a Mage UI, I haven't tested it on any other class other than Enhance Shaman (but only up to level 45, so it will probably lack several things important to endgame use).

The WeakAuras strings by themselves:
http://pastebin.com/SrxQb59x

Back your current UI up first.

Inside the WTF/Account folder there are folders called YourAccountName, YourServerName and YourCharacterName. Rename those.

If you need to move the WeakAuras groups for the moving health indicators (on the player and target frames), select and move the entire group. Touching/moving the individual auras inside those groups can make things go weird.

The target name font is called Good Dog.
http://www.dafont.com/good-dog.font
Go read the licensing details there, and give that guy some money if you can.

There is a font in SharedMedia_MyMedia called Gotham-Black. It's not actually Gotham Black, it's Arial Bold. Gotham Black needs a license, but it was easier to just switch files than go through every addon in my UI looking to see if I had used Gotham Black.

The Fonts folder along side the Interface and WTF folder is for system wide fonts replace. All the original WoW fonts become Helvetica Bold.

Load out-of-date addons

Any addon profiles that look incorrect with either need "Default" or "Kaitsalt - Ravencrest" loaded.

I'm not sure how Chatter and the standard chat panel settings will load on other computers, but you'll notice I have used MoveAnything to hide a few text frames like the boss emote frame and the BG alert frame that spam centre screen with stuff I spent years and years never reading. What I did was have my chat panels show those messages instead. So if you don't have them set to show in your chat panels then they will be gone completely, which you probably don't want.

Most WeakAuras are set to only load if you are a mage.

To use the custom talent frame:

1) Go into the Esc menu and then Key Bindings > Toggle Talent Pane - Unbind this
2) Make a macro like this:

Code:
/click TalentMicroButton
/run PlayerTalentFrame:SetPoint("TOPLEFT",635, -395)
/run WeakAuras.ScanEvents("EVN_O")
Thanks again Smallo for the taint fix!

3) drag this macro onto a (hidden) bartender button.
4) use /kb to activate Bartender's keybinding mode and bind the macro button to be whatever key you used to use to open the talent frame (the default key is N).
5) you may have to change the numbers 635, -395 to make the talent panel in the middle. it depends how big your screen is.

You may find that elements of the talent panel effect need moving around a bit for example the glowing background is placed to be behind a tall female night elf. If your character is a goblin/gnome/dwarf, some stuff might need repositioning. It's some auras are only set to load if your character is a mage. Look in unloaded auras list if you can't see it.

I paint in my spare time. Check it out http://kaitain.info/.

Thats not a problem - thanks for the response

Just before I had to leave for work I did indeed start to do just that and piece by piece add the bits that I wanted. I didn't make too much progress as it was late but I made a start by updating weak auras and getting the strings imported. I love the cleanness and the artwork so I'll be happy enough if I can bring just those parts up to date. I feel the Blizzard implementation of the procs for Frost mage just seems to be a bit of a mess. OK, the animations of the fingers of first diamonds flying off is cool but other than that, it just gets in the way (I guess they are fingers of frost? I'm not even sure!)

Sadly, I am now stuck in a hotel with my 11" MacBook Air and no Razer Naga so while I managed to sneak in a little play of WoD when it hit last night I've had to go back to complete vanilla and make do for a few days until I am back home. Then I'll carry on learning how to bring the pieces that I want in. Actually I don't want to play the new zones much as he 11" screen does spoil the experience somewhat!

Hopefully there won't be any deal breakers...

From my point of view, I've been a player since 2007 but have just come back after a year or more away and so I used the L90 boost for a frost mage. Having a UI like this that simplifies what is going on with procs and stuff would be a real bonus as I was completely baffled by the mechanics of the Frost spec (I think I get it now after hitting a training dummy for about 20 minutes!). The stock UI animations seem to add loads of clutter IMO.

One problem I had is that it looks like you've just done a dump of your entire WoW account into the zip file and I'm not sure how much of that is necessary to be dropped into my account folder.
Yes, sorry to say but this UI is pretty much out of date. If you really wanted to get it working you'd have to update all the addons yourself and then spend a while fixing the layout and reconfiguring everything. Copying the UI from scratch would probably be a more enjoyable thing to do.

As for the zip being just my entire UI folders zipped up, yes that is also true. I never really wanted to release UIs because I didn't know how, but people begged me and said I just should zip the whole thing up. That's not an excuse, just an explanation.

I'll put a note on the front page saying that it's outdated now. WoWInterface doesn't make it very clear when a UI is getting too old to use.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

After trying miserably for a while i couldnt get anything to work... can you tell me how you achieved the following?

1- The Main Chat in reverse (Left to Right) alignment
2- The Character to show up in the Talent Pane (i'm not crazy i saw someone did it with the quests pane too right?)
3- The Self HP and Target's HP with the Markers.

i hope this isn't much trouble ... Thanks in advance!!!
Thanks :-)

1 - Chatter (addon) does both left and right justified text. It's the main reason I use Chatter.

2 - WeakAuras does that. Grab Evn's import string from the second to last post in this thread and have a look how he does it. My alteration was just to use custom graphics.

3 - WeakAuras again. It's too complicated to describe in full detail here, but my next UI (probably out in a few months) will have a similar talents frame but with a bit more of a solid implementation.

Yes you can publish the stand-alone talent addon if you want, just give me credit for the idea somewhere in the download :-) Great work on that btw. I always wanted to make a few of my more complex WeakAuras sets into separate addons (like my moonkin Eclipse set), but I don't have the coding skills to do it myself.
Greeting Kait

I'm planning come back Warlord of Draenor too.I was making some UIs just by my hobby.
I published that UI here:
http://www.wowinterface.com/download...7-tTalent.html

And I always know that how did your UIs works without Micro.
I think you can do it too.

If you have any problem with program code.Email me any time.(s0913031(at)gmail.com)
I love your design,but I don't have sence of art.
You can teach me any ideas ,and I will build it in my capacity range.

Good luck

I make a UI for TalenetFrame that made by your tga file and art design.
I write the code by myself without WeakAuras

So, I want you permit it to publish.
And I always think that I can help you to update your addon.

You can take it here:

If you cant access it.Please email me: s0913031(at)gmail.com

If anyone has a working version or tips to get this to work on 1920x1080 I would love them forever.
I hate when possibly the greatest UI I've ever seen just gets posted once and the creator basically says okay have fun when everything breaks. No discredit to the creator its an amazing UI, its just when something is this amazing people would love the hell out of it if it was continually updated.
Heck some people would even donate.

Hi guys. Sorry slow response, I have been very busy irl recently.

I'm afraid to say that I barely play WoW these days, and I don't have the expertise to solve any of your problems anyways. Hopefully someone else can help you a bit. Sorry.

Hi there,

first of all: very nice UI ! I love the screenshots

But I can't get it to work. I downloaded the files, cleaned up my interface and wtf folder and copied the files to it. I logged into WoW but all addons are default. There are no profiles available ! Nothing ! Just standard. Did I made something wrong? Is maybe the reason my german client? I have no clue

Maybe somebody can help me

Is there any way you could make this for 1920x1080? Really would love to use this even if i have a Hunter. Cant really justify buying a new monitor just for a UI :P
