SurroundFix Classic

Version: v3.5
by: Jademalo [More]

SurroundFix is a simple and lightweight AddOn that fixes the problems associated with running WoW at Surround/Eyefinity/Triplewide resolutions!

Features
- Constrains the UI to the middle display
- Automatic vertical resolution detection
- Automatic middle display aspect ratio detection
- Extremely lightweight and simple, every Blizzard UI element acts as if you're just using a single display
- Almost every addon also works, so long as their frame handling is done properly!
- Will do nothing if using a single display, no need to disable it!
- Ability to set a manual aspect ratio for the UI - Want 16:9 on your 21:9 monitor? No problem!

Configure various options with /sfix or /surroundfix. You can change the aspect with "/sfix aspect x:y", or set it back to automatic mode with "/sfix aspect auto". Just type the command and any arguments for more help!

Note - Certain AddOns will not be positioned correctly, and moving them will be strange. Unfortunately there isn't much I can do about this, since it's an issue with how the AddOn causing issues handles it's frames. Any AddOn that is designed to properly use UIParent should have no issues.






For the curious, the mod essentially resizes the UIParent frame to the resolution of your middle monitor. This means that every UI element and AddOn sees a normal sized display rather than a crazy wide one, so they perfectly orient themselves on the middle display.

This is a much better solution than manually positioning every UI element, and also means that if you switch back to a single display your UI won't break! In fact, it can handle switching between Triplewide and single on the fly!


Known Bugs
- If you're a crazy person who has a 21:9 display with two side 4:3 displays, the UI will be 16:9. It's either this or potentially have issues with bezel correction. =p

Just as a note - I've added the ability to manually set an aspect ratio now.
If you want a 16:9 UI on a 21:9 monitor, you can do that now!

As it is currently, it wouldn't do that. It actually figures out the size of the middle display and tries to keep the UI at the same size as that.

This is mostly for *extremely* wide resolutions, such as 5760x1080, where you've got 3 monitors spanning. If it's just used on a 21:9 monitor by itsself, it would leave everything as is.

I could definitely see about adding some sort of option or toggle to bring in a 21:9 monitor to 16:9 if there's interest though!
