For most designated [wide] resolutions up to 1920x1200.
*** FauxMazzle and Warlords of Draenor Beta:
Blizzard won't be enabling addons in the beta until later in the cycle (link to forum post by Zarhym). After that time I will create a WoD beta page for FauxMazzle when I can find enough compatible addons to make it worthwhile.
I look foward to your feedback.
Many thanks to the generosity of Elcarath for allowing 3 very cool skins to be added to this project
Changed in Beta 11
*** Requires a re-FauxMazzling (/fm or /fauxmazzle) of all characters.
*** The default for ToT and Focus frames is now disabled.
Fixed bags squishing into the micromenu bar (Thank you Excelis).
Fixed positioning of sRaidFrames in 1920x1080 (Thank you Excelis).
Removed Omen toggle hotspot.
Changed Recount hotspot to toggle Omen and/or Recount.
Moved Omen and Recount, they will now toggle over the bottom right chat frames (needs a bit of work).
Fixed a bug generated if sRadiFrames is not installed.
Added buttons and filters to limit chat display from General to Group, Guild, Trade, Whisper. Group includes /say (needs refinement).
Fixed positioning of Boss frame 1 (Thank you Excelis).
Added dropdown to the /FauxMazzle window to select 12 or 14 button layout for Dominos action bars, 14 is still the default (sorry Excelis ).
Latest version of Addons included.
I now have a spare hotspot, whatever shall i do with it???
End of changes.
What is FauxMazzle?
FauxMazzle is a look and feel tribute to MazzleFizz's once great MazzleUI that sadly didn't make it out of the Burning Crusade.
What do you get?
Background textures that although not Mazz's, I consider are a reasonable approximation. If you have the textures from the original MazzleUI (including those from other authors that were part of the pack), they should also work with FauxMazzle. If you do have Mazzlefizz's original textures please DO NOT publish/upload/share them, Mazzlefizz was very specific about the use of his code and art.
3 additional skins from the original compilation, courtesy of Elcarath (see the screenshots).
An in-game configuration dialog for the "configurable" addons listed.
The ability to choose your own replacement addons (which you will have to configure yourself).
The ability to switch off/on configuration of individual addons should you want to make and preserve your own changes or play around and then re-apply the default settings.
The joy of once again seeing a cool MazzleUI style layout without hours (and hours and ....) of fiddling around.
The ability to have this quick, easy setup for all your characters new and old.
How do I use FauxMazzle?

Rename or move elsewhere the WTF folder at [Drive]:\[Programs Files]\World of Warcraft\WTF.

Changed the method for anchoring, sizing, aligning, parenting and scaling the major components of FauxMazzle.

You can click the clipboard icons (top-right of General chat and the Combat Log) to allow you to select and copy (Ctrl-C) text from their respective chat frames.
