Reader UI of the Week: Go hotkey crazy with Vardelm {WoW}

Jun 28th 2011 9:32AM I think there's a few videos on YouTube showing how to set up SUF, but I haven't seen anything else. It's pretty straightforward. What I have is the portrait, health bar w/ health text, power bar w/ power text, and the blank bar with level/race/class text.

The character/target name really makes the frames, though. For those, the text is associated with the unit frame as a whole, rather than to a bar. It's anchored outside the frame. I then made a gradient kgPanel parented & anchored to each unit frame. To find out the names, you can use the /framestack command, which shows frame names under your mouse cursor. I think it's in the default UI. I'll look at that plus what the SUF frames names are when WoW comes back up with 4.2.

Also, the SUF auras are completely turned off. I use Raven for all of the buff/debuff icons.

Jun 21st 2011 3:53PM Happy to see the positive reception so far! :)

Regarding my G-keys, they have 3 sets of 6 keys each, which are similar to Ins, Del, Home, etc. So, I set them to use those keys plus modifiers that I don't use in combination with those keys. So:

G1 - alt + insert
G2 - alt + home
G3 - alt + pageup
G4 - alt + delete
G5 - alt + end
G6 - alt + pagedown

G7 - right shift + insert
G8 - right shift + home
G9 - right shift + pageup
G10 - right shift + delete
G11 - right shift + end
G12 - right shift + pagedown

G13 - right alt + right shift + insert
G14 - right alt + right shift + home
G15 - right alt + right shift + pageup
G16 - right alt + right shift + delete
G17 - right alt + right shift + end
G18 - right alt + right shift + pagedown


Short version: use combinations of modifiers + keys that you'll never use.

Breakfast Topic: What's your story? {WoW}

Jul 27th 2010 10:30AM My 2 main characters & my new main in Cata are all the same person. Born from a Bronzebeard mother and a Dark Iron father, he grew up mostly in Loch Modan and became a hunter. Ultimately, he overcame (most) suspicions about his loyalties to the Bronzebeard clan, and was allowed into the order of paladins. However, he continues to experience suspicions from some. In Northrend, he sees Ulduar and the origins of the dwarves, comes to believe that the dwarves should pursue knowledge of their past, and feels that the Light is more for humans than dwarves. When the Cataclysm happens, Magni's sacrifice will confirm his thoughts and he becomes a shaman. Adding to that, the return of a faction of Iron Dwarves into alliance with the Bronzebeards via Moira allows him to finally return to Ironforge without facing suspicions about him personally.
