Need help with NUI+ and Eyefinity

First off I'd like to take a sec and thanks for giving access to such a great interface. I have been using it for about a month now and love it.

My question/problem is related to Eyefinity. I just set up Eyefinity this evening (3 Asus 24" monitors and 2 ATI 5870's in Crossfire). WoW runs fine with it's standard interface but when I enable NUI+ it becomes distorted and "stretches" the interface across all 3 monitors. Is there anything I need to do settings wise to correct this? Or is this a known problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is going to be an issue with nUI5 as it tries to fit itself to the full width of the display and with your change, the display is three monitors wide which is making nUI try to be three monitors wide.

That said, there are other users using similar setups that have nUI working. It takes some tweaking. See this post for instructions on how to do it... http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=20917

nUI6 has built in support for viewports to address this problem, but modifying that is not currently possible in the alpha.

Same situation here.
any body got a starting point for the settings..
running 5760x1080 and everything I tried made it worse..
I think I am missing something in what Scott has in the post he linked to..
and my life just doesnt offer much time to play with it and get any game time in...
Thx in advance for any assistance...
oh.. And Great Job on nUI Scott.. having lots of trouble playing without it now..

I may be wrong, but I would start here...

Code:
nUI_Options = {
    ["scale"] = 1,
    ["hScale"] = 0.75,
    ["vScale"] = 0.64125,
    -- all the rest of your WTF settings
}
To make your UI narrower across the display area, reduce the value of hScale and visa versa. To make your UI shorter up and down the display area, reduce the value of vScale and visa versa.

You do have to log your character out (but do not have to exit WoW) between attempts to change the WTF file. So... log out, change the settings in your WTF file, log back in and check. If you don't like the results, rinse and repeat.

well that seems to be a step in the right direction except every thing is shifted left .. or rather the interface elements start on the left and dont make it to the right side of screen..
this picture shows my left and center screen...
if I could get stuff centered.. I would be very happy

This may or may not work, so you might have to "undo" it. We'll see.

Edit the file [ Interface > AddOns > nUI > Main > nUI.lua ]... go to the very bottom of the file and add the following...

Code:
nUI_MasterFrame:SetHeight( 1080 );
nUI_MasterFrame:SetWidth( 1920 );
nUI_MasterFrame:ClearAllPoints();
nUI_MasterFrame:SetPoint( "BOTTOM", UIParent, "BOTTOM", 0, 0 );
nUI_MasterFrame:SetPoint( "TOP", UIParent, "TOP", 0, 0 );
Save the file then do a '/nui rl' and see if it centers the console and dashboard.

EDIT: Note... this is specifically for your own display resolution which appears to be three 1920x1080 displays. If your center display resolution is not 1920X1080 then you will want to use that display's resolution in the SetHeight and SetWidth calls above.

REEDIT: The scale appears to still be off... so, if this "fix" does center the dashboard, then you're going to want to play with the hScale and vScale values in the WTF files to make the dashboard fit in the one monitor and to make your action buttons square again... reduce hScale to make the dashboard fit inside the one monitor, then once that fit is "right" reduce the value of vScale to make the action buttons square and you're all set.

didnt work initially cuz I was too literal and put it at the very end..
then I put it just above this stuff:

Code:
 
frame:RegisterEvent( "PLAYER_LOGOUT" );
frame:RegisterEvent( "ADDON_LOADED" );
frame);
and it seems to work..
though more tweeking is required..
need to look at it more... I think I may have lost some stuff..
but it is possible I still have stuff loaded from trying to go without nUI..
(decided that was gonna be a hard job.. )

still no joy

I can get one of 2 ways... default buttons layout centered
or nUI button layout on left screen..
differnce is in the \WoW\interface\AddOns\nUI\Main\nUI.lua
file..
I can send you both versions of the file to see if you can spot what I'm doing wrong


Anyone out there that has gotten this working and could chime in I sure would appreciate it.

See if the attached file works for you. Install it in your [ Interface > AddOns > nUI > Main ] folder.

You're looking for this code section in [ Interface > AddOns > nUI > Main > nUI.lua ] -- the two lines I highlighted are the ones that set the position of the top and bottom UI elements. The number I highlighted in each is the one that moves the top or bottom element left and right. Change it to a negative number to move it left... the bigger the negative number, the more it will move to the left.

Code:
nUI_BottomBars.Anchor = CreateFrame( "Frame", "$parent_Anchor", nUI_BottomBars );
nUI_BottomBarsLocator:SetPoint( "BOTTOMLEFT", nUI_MasterFrame, "BOTTOMLEFT", 0, 0 );
nUI_BottomBars:SetPoint( "TOP", nUI_BottomBarsLocator, "TOP", 0, 0 );
nUI_BottomBars.Anchor:SetPoint( "TOP", nUI_BottomBars, "TOP", 0, 0 );

nUI_Dashboard.Anchor = CreateFrame( "Frame", "$parent_Anchor", nUI_Dashboard );
nUI_Dashboard:SetPoint( "BOTTOM", nUI_BottomBarsLocator, "TOP", 0, 0 );
nUI_Dashboard.Anchor:SetPoint( "CENTER", nUI_Dashboard, "CENTER", 0, 0 );

nUI_TopBars.Anchor = CreateFrame( "Frame", "$parent_Anchor", nUI_TopBars );
nUI_TopBarsLocator:SetPoint( "BOTTOMLEFT", nUI_MasterFrame, "TOPLEFT", 0, 0 );
nUI_TopBars:SetPoint( "BOTTOM", nUI_TopBarsLocator, "BOTTOM", 0, -115 );
nUI_TopBars.Anchor:SetPoint( "BOTTOM", nUI_TopBars, "BOTTOM", 0, 0 );

Scott,
I just gotta say you ROCK!!!!



-320 was the magic number in those slots for me...

now to add my other addons (very few due to the fantasitic nature of nUI)
and go play a bit and see if I have other issues related to the extra large screen size.. I've read about and seen some issues related to very large text size on things like combat damage numbers, xp, and title bars but those are unrelated to nUI.. though if you don't mind I might post my findings here just to have some documentation others facing the same issues can find..
(cuz it sucks to spend big $$ on nice equipment and find it screws up playing your favorite game)

Another fix

If you add one line in the function nUI:setScale():
hScale = width / 2560;
add--> hScale = hScale / 3;
vScale = height / 1600;

It will work without changing anything else. Hopefully anyhow...
