A minor delay

Apologies to anyone hoping to download my UI compilation last night. I tested out the installation on two of my characters, as well as one of my wife’s toons on a separate computer. Everything went like clockwork, but I wanted to run one more test, so I asked a friend of mine to install it on his machine. There were a couple of issues. Nothing major mind you, but I wanted to address them nonetheless.

The bulk of the problems were a result of his screen resolution. Since my UI was designed to work on a 1920×1200 resolution monitor, it’s only going to work out-of-the-box for those of you running at that res. However, I took some steps last night that should hopefully make adjusting it a lot easier for users with different resolutions.

Basically, what I did was parent and anchor the remaining KgPanels so that they would stay fixed to the various addon modules should they be moved. I also parented all of the unit frames to each other, so that they remain in balance should the UI Scale be modified.

While doing these things, I made a couple of other minor changes to improve things a bit, but with no drastic cosmetic overhauls of any kind.

My plan is to have it available on the site at some point today, but we’ll see how things go. I want to make sure that transitioning to my layout is as easy and seamless as possible. 🙂

Protip: Don’t dismount for a screenshot on the tallest spire above Dalaran unless… you’re an engineer, or… you want to experience mounted bear base jumping without a chute.

  1. Waiting to test your UI. However, I guess will not match so well in my 1680×1050 Res.

    Nice job with Power Auras as well. I still stick to some ’rounded’ auras around me:

    – Low Mana
    – Rapid Fire Effect
    – Ring Effect
    – Trinket Effects
    – Tier 2 Bonus & 4 Bonus Effects
    – Serpent Sting Not Applied
    – Hunter’s Mark Not Applied

    And I would like to track Call of the Wild as well, vause I’m Beast Master.
    Auras are growing xD, so I’m interesting to see how do you solve this issue.
