INSTALLATION (top)

This compilation contains current versions (as of 12-27-2006) of roughly 70 AddOns, listed below.

* * * BEFORE INSTALLING, PLEASE BACKUP/RENAME YOUR "INTERFACE" AND "WTF" FOLDERS * * *

In the unlikely event that something goes wrong, or if you simply decide you don't want to use these AddOns, it is much, much easier to restore your original settings than try to recreate them from scratch. All of the folders referred to in this ReadMe are inside your main "World of Warcraft" folder (where you have the game installed).

To install the MookUI AddOns, unzip the file "MookUI_12-27-2006.zip" to your hard drive - inside you will find two folders:

EXAMPLE
My login name is 'Pikachu', and I play a character named 'Joeblow' on the Medivh server. I want to try out the MookUI AddOns with him, so I download the "MookUI_12-27-2006.zip" file and unzip it to my computer.

My final folder structure should look like this:

C:\Games\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\**all the MookUI AddOns**
C:\Games\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\PIKACHU\Medivh\Joeblow\


SETUP (top)

After the MookUI 'Interface' and 'WTF' folders have been copied to your 'World of Warcraft' folder (INSTALLATION, above), follow these steps to begin configuring the AddOns the way they appear in various MookUI screenshots.

Login to the character whose name you used when renaming folders during installation.
At the Login screen, click the AddOns buttons and:

Hopefully your screen looks at least something like this:

Fresh Login

If not, it may be because your Resolution and/or UI Scale are not the same as mine. Under Video Options, my Resolution is set to 1024 x 768, my UI Scale slider is down to 0.64. If this doesn't match your settings you may need to do additional tweaking to the AddOns to configure them correctly for your screen.

This guide should help you get started. There are quite a few AddOns in this collection, if you're finding it tough to get things configured it might be a good idea to just enable a few at a time from the 'AddOns' menu of the login screen.


KNOWN ISSUES (top)

Bug reports, suggestions, support, and F.A.Q. can be found on the MookUI forum at: http://www.themook.net/wowforum

RESOLVED

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (F.A.Q.) (top)

Questions can be posted to the MookUI forum at: http://www.themook.net/wowforum, and may be included in future revisions of this document.

Q. What is that squeaky voice saying 'fatality' sometimes?
A. This is the notification sound from the 'BugSack' AddOn, telling you that an error message was intercepted and sent to the BugSack. To disable the sound, type "/bs mute" in the chatbox.

Q. Can I move/change the action bars?
A. Sure can! Type "/bongos" in the chatbox, then uncheck "Lock Bar Positions". This allows you to drag the bars around the screen; you can also right-click any unlocked bar to access more options (like scale, number of buttons, etc.).

Q. How do I get that textured gray box I can see in screenshots of the MookUI?
A. This is accomplished with the 'Skinner' AddOn - to create that frame type "/skinner bottomframe show" in the chatbox. You can adjust the height of the box by typing "/skinner bottomframe height XXX", where 'XXX' is the height you want the box to be; adjust the width by typing "/skinner bottomframe width XXX", etc. (Just typing "/skinner bottomframe" will show a chatbox list of all options available for the bottom frame).

Q. How can I keep just the textured gray box, without having 'Skinner' reskin so many other windows?
A. 'Skinner' will allow you to choose what you do and do not want reskinned; in particular, "/skinner char none" and "/skinner npc none" will turn off the reskinning of most character and NPC windows. You can also access most 'Skinner' functions through the 'DeuceCommander' FuBar menus.

Q. How do I create the three gold-bordered panels at the bottom of the screen?
A. 'eePanels' is the AddOn to use to create panels like this - right-click on the 'eePanels' FuBar plug-in to access the commands for creating and modifying panes.

Q. How can I see what I have in my bank without being at the bank?
A. The addon 'vBagnon' takes care of this - on the normal Keybindings menu set a key for "Toggle Bank" (under the heading 'Bagnon').

Q. Why can't I get the Bongos action bar to work correctly when I change stances?
A. The Bongos action bar will only swap pages correctly if you set the bindings for the action bar through the Bongos interface, not the Blizzard Keybindings menu. To do this, type "/bongos", then click the 'Bindings' tab on the Bongos menu - just hold the cursor over the action button you want to bind and press the key you want to bind it to.

Q. Where can I download the most current copy of the MookUI compilation?
