FauxMazzle Beta  Updated less than 3 days ago!

Version: 1.0.0 Beta 3
by: Fizzlemizz [More]

I'm calling it FauxMazzle 2 while in Beta to avoid confusion.

Latest:
We've had a couple of downloads with no "explosive" negative feedback.
We're down to what would be considered "critical differences" between wanting keep FauxMazzle 1 or moving to FauxMazzle 2 (beta) "as is".

Thank you for all your support!

*** BETA VERSION *** - RETAIL ONLY!!!
You've been warned! More below.

Updates
1.0.0 Beta 3

  • New: Method for setting chat/edit fonts compatible with retail and classic (Thanks DocEVL).
  • New: Chat/Edit font selection via LibSharedMedia.
  • New: Replaced included version of TinyPad with V.3.0.beta (can be replaced with the previous 2.2 version).
  • New: Moved game Download/StreamingIcon to left of Latency Text.
  • Fix: Menu Copy Settings now copies toys as well.
  • Various: Fixes, changes that aren't visible.
latest known version of addons included.

Before unzipping the folder:
EXIT THE GAME!
Make a backup copy (or two or...) of your [WoW program folder]\_retail_\Interface and [WoW program folder]\_retail_\WTF folders!

Once you have made copies of the folders I would recommend you empty the [WoW program folder]\_retail_\Interface\Addons folder and just start with the addons in the FauxMazzle package. You can re-add your others later on.

You can also empty the [WoW program folder]\_retail_\WTF\Account\[your account]\SavedVariables folder. As with the addons, you can copy your SavedVariables files for addons not part of FauxMazzle from the backup once everything is working.

*** Only tested on 3840x2160 Windowed Full resolution ***
Feedback on other settings greatly appreciated. Because of it's nature, Fauxmazzle might not be suitable for all screen formats (unless you like that kind of thing).

Installing:
Unzip the contents of the package to the new presumably empty [WoW program folder]\_retail_\Interface\Addons folder.

Using:
Start the game.

Now what?
If all has gone well and you're in the game, the FauxMazzle menu (not the same as the Retail FauxMazzle menu (See screenshot 2/3)) should have appeared in the upper left of your screen. It will do this for all characters new to FauxMazzle.

While you can start playing, some addons won't have fully configured. The "Reload" button on the menu should be red to indicate that FauxMazzle is recommending a reload before continuing. You can configure the various FauxMazzle options before doing this reload.

Once you've run the reload process you should be able to head out into Azeroth and do, well, Warcraft!

What if it all goes pair-shaped!
Exit the game, delete the [WoW program folder]\_retail_\Interface and [WoW program folder]\_retail_\WTF and either, try again or, copy back from the saved versions you created earlier to return to you original setup.

It would help if you let me know what pair shaped looked like for you.

What's different with this FauxMazzle compared to the old (current Retail) version?
Everything and hopefully very little. This version is a complete re-write of the complete re-write of FauxMazzle 1 (Blizzard releasing Classic meant the then FauxMazzle 2 would be too hard to maintain across historical releases making this FauxMazzle 3).

The end result should be pretty much the same look and feel as the current FauxMaxzzle with some obvious omissions
  • No FauxMazzle Raid Frames: They should return some time but maybe not before gold.
  • No Discord Art: This version doesn't use it.
  • No Scrolling Combat Texts: I'll see if the default can be made to look close enough otherwise??

Anything new?
Under the covers, very much. Each character has their own setup for pretty much everything configurable with the FauxMazzle Menu.

The Gnome:
She's back and waving again... Just not quite the same as the original. Still no plans to bring back the Mazzlegasm

Skins:
You can select for a character to have a single skin every time they login (*) or they can have a random skin either each time they login or changes at the begining of the days play. You can select skins to exclude from the random selection process meaning the character will never see those ones (the * marks the current selection).

There's a new mechanism so new skins can be created, distributed and installed as standalone addons by and for anyone rather than hard coded.

Masque:
There is a new FauxMazzle Masque skin, nothing dramatic but I hope you can at least now see the button icons.

UI Setting: Button Style and On LeftClick
These refer to the FauxMazzle MiniButton.
  • Style: you can display a dynamic 2D/3D portrait of your character or the fixed FauxMazzle FM logo.
  • LeftClick: you can swap the click actions of the button (which mouse button click opens the options/menu)
Mini Buttons:
If you have some addons with mini buttons you keep displayed you can (fingers crossed) have FauxMazzle manage the placement of them between the default buttons.
I've included BugGrabber and BugSack with the Beta package. The BugSack minibutton is considered a default if the addon is installed.

To Use:
  • Click the "Find" button.
  • Hover the mouse over a minibutton you want to manage.
  • Click the "Select" button (be careful not to mouse over another minibutton on the way back to press this).
  • Adjust the sliders so you minibutton sits where you want it too.
  • Press "Save"
Press "Cancel" to...

Chat:
Pretty much the same as before with separate font sizes selectable for the edit box and chat frames. You can also bring up the Blizzard Chat Settings frame.

You can also choose to have the FauxMazzle channel bar display permanently or only on MouseOver.

Menu:
This is new. It has three columns that can be filled (top to bottom) independently. The are no "section" labels. Drag and drop into the desired column. If you drop below the last item the selection will appear last in the column. If you drop onto another item, it will be pushed down and replaced with the dropped item inserted in its place. If a column shows as "FULL" you will have to remove (drag and "drop off") an item to make changes (something to work on at some stage).

HUD:
FauxMazzle uses the FauxMazzle HUD addon (there is no more internal version). It uses the addons own profile system so if you want to have different HUD setups for different characters, you will need to create profiles for them here (multiple characters can use the same profile).

AddOns:
Where they are available through FauxMazzle, configurations for the variaous addons will be available through this list (Only DUF and DOM options ATM.). Press arrow button for the options.

Disabling the addon should prevent FauxMazzle configuring it in the future. If you want custom addon settings I would suggest creating a new profile other than "FauxMazzle" for those that support them and disable the addon in FauxMazzle.
This is the least tested section of the setup.

Copy Settings:
The Copy Settings button allows you to copy the currently open "tab" options from one character to the current character's settings. It REPLACES any settings already made. Press the button, select character to copy from, press Copy. You can copy different sets of options from different characters.

Reset:
Clears all settings for the current character and sets them to default.

Reload:
Reloads the UI forcing the game to save-to-disk any new settings made and re-start using them. For the most part this won't be required for changes made in the FauxMazzle options unless you just want to enforce a save before continuing.

New Skin:
FauxMazzle comes with a new Night Elf skin. A couple of my other ones have has some minor alterations.

FATALITY:
I truly hope this doesn't happen but... Beta. If you can copy the error from the Bugsack window (Ctrl-A/Ctrl-C and past at least the beginning portion of it here along with a description of what you were trying to do when it happened it will be greatly appreciated.

My Olde Addons:
If you've gotten to this stage and are reasonably comfortable FauxMazzle is working well enough, you can copy your addons from the folder you saved earlier and paste them into the new one selecting "Skip" (Windows) so you don't overwrite any duplicates.

If you use the Twitch Client or Minion you can keep addons up-to-date as per normal. Any update to FauzMazzle will contain the latest know versions of packaged addons as at that date.

Questions/bug reports/something not mentioned missing/suggestions/comments in general:
Post them here.

Good luck everyone!

Thank you for the report Aurizen_Darkstar.

It's probably set to non-interactable. I'll take a look as I can't remember if the "live" version is the same or if there is any (good) reason for it.

That's AutoBar. A bit strange that one's causing problems unless possibly the old SavedVariables didn't get cleared. I'll do some testing.

If it happens to another character, try opening the FauxMazzle Options frame, press Reset/OK and then Reload/OK.

It will reset the character to default setting but it might fix the TM problem.

If you do, let me know how/if it works.
Thank you Jwa.

Press Prt Scr or Print Screen, however your keyboard has it labeled while in-game. They get save to the ScreenShots folder under the game version (_retail_, _classic_ etc.) as .jpg images.

It might be a problem because TM saves it's settings into the individual characters SV folder rather than the global one.

I'll do some testing and see what I find.

Thanks Jwa.

Re: Trinket bar

Hi Jwa, thank you for the report.

Any chance of a screenshot and/or letting me know what screen resolution you're using?

The addon is TrinketMenu. I'm looking for a replacement for TM as it no longer seems to be supported or possibly I'll just create some action buttons to store the currently used trinkets. Resizing TM can be a bit tricky as it's scale based.

Thanks again.

Thank You

To everyone trying Fauxmazzle (2) Beta, thank you. I hope the experience isn't too fraught navigating the changes.

Have fun!
