DaedhirUI 2.1 available.

DaedhirUI 2.1 for WoW 3.3.5.

As usual, there may be some delay in file approval.

There have been a few changes. I've generally tried to tighten things up a bit. More info on the wowinterface page.

I hope everybody's enjoying it. I hope to get into the beta so I can have the UI ready for when Cataclysm comes out.

Once again I love you UI. Been checking frequently for an update and I'm excited to play around with this new version.

I installed the new version today and there are two things I noted right away.

1. Class Timers isn't in the UI package. I don't know if that was on purpose or you just missed it. It's listed as being used and I love it so I hope it goes back in.

2. I think the addon that controls buffs in the top right corner is also missing. I played around with some stuff and I couldn't get them to show properly.

Other than that, everything seems great. I'm interested to see how Skada runs as opposed to Recount. I'm also interested to see how using something other than Fubar goes. I have to admit that I like FuBar just because I liked one of the bag addons that allowed me to open all my bags with one click.

All in all, another great job.

Dina said...

Quick question. So leaving all of the addons outdated is recommended, except for BigWigs?

Thanks again for the UI!

Dina said...

Oh, and I agree with Trunks second point. I can't find my buffs anywhere.

Dina said...

Sorry for all the comments, but just had to go to Buffalo3 and enable player buffs to fix that problem.

Daedhir said...

Sorry it took me a while to get back to you all.

Trunks, I took out ClassTimers because I'd been using PowerAuras instead, and then I tried out SexyCooldown. I'm not happy with either of these, so I've now gone back to ClassTimers. But until recently I didn't really have a great place to put it in the UI. I'm working on a redesign of the player and target unit frames, and in doing so I'm removing the aura display from the PitBull4 target frame. This should provide a good place for ClassTimers to go, growing the bars out of the top.

I think you'll be stoked about what I'm working on right now. ;)

Here's a hint:

Dina: Yeah, something went haywire with the Buffalo configuration.. I've now figured out how to independently scale the Blizzard buff frame, so I think in the next iteration of my UI I'm going to get rid of Buffalo. It keeps giving me problems, so I don't think it's worth it anymore.

Incidentally, if you want you can create a macro to change the size of the Blizzard buffs. With my UI scale, 1.2 is a good scale for the buff frame. Try making a macro like this:

/script BuffFrame:SetScale(1.2)
/script ConsolidatedBuffs:SetScale(1.2)

The second line should only be run if you've enabled the consolidate buffs option in the interface options.

About updating the addons... I've made some minor changes to some of the addons to make the overall UI more consistent. Grid is one of these, as is Dominos. You can update addons, but just be careful. If you notice that things don't look right, it could be that you need to go back to the version included with the UI.

I tell people not to update so that I don't get a lot of questions from people who aren't running the same addon versions I am. If you're an advanced user, use your own judgement.

Oh yeah! You know I'm stoked. I can't wait to see what you end up doing with the new portraits.

I see what you were trying to do removing ClassTimers. I actually raided a little bit with your current set up (resto druid). It wasn't bad, and I could mostly track what I was looking for, but it didn't take me long before I installed classTimers so I could get a better idea about how much time I hade left (especially when I swapped specs to feral dps).

I like that you are thinking of putting ClassTimers back towards the middle of the screen. When they where on the far right hand I always felt I was looking at the corner and not enough at what was going on. In this new version of the UI, I placed the timers where Recount and the threat meter used to be. Not a great place but it's a little more central and I'm used to looking there anyway because of the last UI.

How have you been finding Skada? I"m still getting used to it, but overall it seems to do a pretty good job.

Dina said...

Yeah, for now I have remained with Buffalo, which has been alright for the most part. If it starts giving any more problems, I'll probably stick with the default until your next configuration.

Oh, and I really enjoy Skada over Recount. Really easy to navigate through plus built-in absorption counter.

Trunks2560 said...


You are probably getting tired of hearing from me, but I just wanted to know that Decursive is listed as a used addon but isn't currently in this build. I was running RS the other day and you can imagine my surprise when I went to go decurse and there was nothing there ;-)

Not a big deal, I just though you might want to put it in your list of changes.

Daedhir said...

Sorry about that. I set Grid up so that it clearly shows debuffs to be dispelled, and Clique to cast them. You are obviously free to install Decursive if you still need it.

Simon said...

Just wanted to say that i love your UI. Each version seems to get better and better.

So has this been what everyone was waiting for?

Now that Patch 4.0.1 is available to test on the regular PTR is there an estimated time we can expect an update? :)

Daedhir said...

I have been on the beta for a while now, so you can expect a new version soon. :)
