    [UI] Now that Trinity and Bongos doesn't work ...


    Anyone has a good suggestion to another type of button-AddOn? I am currently using Dominos.
    I'd really love to have a Trinity-like AddOn, and Macaroon is just too confusing for me. Haven't really put much time into it, though.
    I would prefer if you could make more than 10 bars, wich is the annoying part about Dominos.

    I would really appreciate your help! Thanks.

    What do you need more then 10 bars for? That'd be insane clutter.

    I tried it, but that too will only allow me to use 10 bars. I do fancy things with my UI, and end up using them all in no time .. I can barely have all my spells! (Mage .. I got lot's of portals and don't like Cryosis)

    I have a Mage as well and I have approximately 4 bars of spells, approximately because not every button is a Mage spell.

    The guy that was making Bongos is now working on Dominos. It has the same basic functionality of Bongos 2, along with the configuration, but it doesn't offer the range coloring that bongos did. For that you'll need a small mod called RedRange. Those two should be able to mimc the functionality nearly exactly with what Bongos 2 had.

    For Mage portals/shields etc I use a nice mod called oPie: http://www.go-hero.net/opie/ It's a very cool mod and it simplifies a lot of things. I have all my portals and teleports bound to 1 key now.

    This is my UI, in progress.



    As you see, I've pretty much made it up in categories. Left side is my Portals (need two more for WotLK), and the upper left one is my Armor's. Middle near the cast bar is the most used spells for the current spec of mine. Below that there's the less used spells, like Arcane Blast wich I don't use often as fire. To the right of that I got my "consumables" and above that a bit of a mix ...

    I'd really like to change much of it, smaller, more buttons etc .. could really use more! I tend to make alot of macro's too.

    I'm currently using Dominos, and Red Range too. The lack of bars available is what makes me want a new one, though. Thanks anyway!

    I'm not quite sure but Bartender 4 may allow you to show more bars. Have you tried oPie that I referenced earlier? You can put macros into that, and AFAIK it does not take up additional action bar slots to do so. So for your skills that are not used as often, for me Professions, Armors, Portals, you can make rings that are bound to keys on your keyboard/mouse and save probably 2 - 3 action bars worth of space.

    I have a custom UI that I made with Dominos but I must say, Dominos is worht it for the hotkey assigning if nothing else!

    Yeah most action bar mods worth their salt have a nice easy way to assign bindings to action bars. On a side note both oPie and Dominos support Button Facade if you're into skinning your buttons.

    Yea, thats a big reason why I used to use Trinity. Now that it doesn't work, I use Bartender 4 now. I used to not like it before, but they made key binding much easier now. That, and the bars and such align themselves. I have 6 action bars of buttons with 2 bars showing.

    It's quite nice and I am now a convert.

    Using Button Facade too, but when I assigned it to Macaroon, it also changed the Opie buttons

    Can't see to find a way to get Opie out of the Button Facade link..there is no default skin...and I so liked that original fuzzy glow

    For the most part, I choose utility over looks, I play on a small 17 inch wide screen monitor, so I'm cramped for vertical space so the bottom of my screen can't have too much height or I lose vision; buttons too far across and I lose ability to click fast enough if it's an ability I don't have hot-keyed.

    There are fairly recent pics for my ui, it's for my little (low-level) Druid, but it is almost identical to my Mage's UI, I'll add some pics of that tonight when I get home from work.

    On my Mage I have a ton of things macro'd to reduce the amount of buttons needed to be shown. All my mounts are on one button, both trinkets on one button, 2 spells in one button, etc, depending on how I click/what key combo I use to determine which gets cast/used.

    I believe if you look under the Button Facade Options in the Interface menu there's a separate section for each mod that it can skin and under each section you can choose to use the normal "Blizzard" skin or else a Button Facade skin. I think if you set it to the Blizzard skin you can get the original oPie override back. The default for all your mods is set under the General options I believe. I'm not positive on every bit of this as I'm not at my pc right now, but I'll update this post with SSes later tonight.

    If I chose the "Blizzard" skin that is all square and ugly...I seem to have tried all possible options

    my ui using Button Facade and Bartender 4, I recommend them - I was using bongos prior to 3.0 and the transition was simple

    Hmm I'll have to do a bit of testing. Currently I'm using the Caith skin for my buttons on oPie and I think it meshes pretty well with the style. http://www.wowinterface.com/download...cadeCaith.html Give it a try if you like. I'll see if I can find the hook where it styles oPie for you so you can turn it off later on tonight.
