Sorry in advance if this has already been discussed. I recently installed the SpartanUI mod in hopes of a nice compact clean UI. The problem I keep running into however, is the chat frame. It is still in the same place as the defualt and is hiding under the SpartanUI frame. Any way to fix this or work around it? I'm still new to this btw. Thanks in advance.
Do you have Simple Chat something or other checked in your interface settings? That might interfere...
No, I don't have any addons for my chat frame.
Edit: I was hoping to get my settings to something like this:
I don't mean an addon. I mean in the normal game's interface settings. I don't know the exact name of the setting or what category it's under.
Haven't changed any chat settings at all. If this won't work, is there something else I could use?
When I downloaded and installed SpartanUI, I ran into a similar problem with the chat boxes being in their default positions and being covered by the UI itself. The only way I found to work around it was to move the chat boxes above where Spartan was at on my screen. The only problem with that came once I found out where my party members and raid members showed up: right underneath where I now had my chat box. And I couldn't move it over to the other side because then it would be on top of my target and target-of-target.
The only thing I can think of is: Are you using a widescreen display? I believe that to have been my problem as my screen is 1440x900 and there just wasn't enough room on either side of the bars in Spartan to put the chat boxes as shown in the screenshots on the site.
I got around this by uninstalling Spartan and going back to my old set of addons that I had prior and spending some time reconfiguring them to get a similar effect as SpartanUI. My end result:
This is showing my target, target-of-target, and focus frames as well. The pet frame and pet's target frame show up underneath the focus target. Addons used in this creation of mine:
XPerl Unit Frames
Bartender4 w/ ButtonFacade Onyx
FuBar 3.0 w/ ExperienceFu, FactionsFu, GuildFu, QuestsFu, BattlegroundFu, HonorFuPlus, DurabilityFu, BagFu, MoneyFu, CharmsFu, ClockFu, MailFu, and Performance Fu
Karma (the little Ying Yang)
ScrollingCombatText + ScrollingCombatText - Damage
If you would like, I can try to put everything into a .zip file and upload it somewhere for you and anyone else to download. You might have to do some configuration of your own to make it just right for you, but I think that everyone should expect that when using someone else's UI.
And before some of you try to say that there is already a thread for posting UIs, I know this. I already posted in that thread. I just reposted my UI here so that they don't have to sift through 108 pages to find it.
I really like how you have that set up. The only things I would change is 1) the chat frames all together in one single window, prolly right next to the right side of the mini map. 2) the box that has the bags and other stuff in it move it over to the far right bottom, and 3) make the quest log background transperant. Other then that it seems pretty much like the spartan set up. I'm going to uninstall spartan and try those out. Now all I have to do is figure out how to configure them all! lol Thanks
