What can it do? : ----------------- - Put a texture of your choice on the bottom of the screen via menu options (use /bx menu or /btex menu), - Set height/width/transparency/position/colors/layer of your texture, - Use any other TGA/BLP texture file or any other 'pack' of skin, - Display a grid to setup your interface correctly, - Modify the 3D rendering area with viewport function, - Work in any resolution, - Low memory usage & standalone addon (no libs or dependency are needed). Ready to use skins : -------------------- The following skins are packaged and are ready to use via the option menu: - Dark Shadow serie - Simple Black - Fade Black - Red Fury - Warcraft Classic -Ice Dragon - Ice Dragon remake (credits to Xaphiroth) - Ice Dragon remake with pet bar(credits to Xaphiroth) - Wall, - White Dragon !

FAQ : ----- How do I run menu config ? type "/bx Menu" or "/Btex menu" in the chat windows. Why the download is so big ? it's because it contain many images. How do i load custom skins? Copy TGA or BLP files to /interface/btex/skins/ directory, and use the "custom texture" options on the top dropdown menu. Write name file without the end "-1.tga". Example: for 'blabla' skin, you have 4 tga named blabla-1.tga, blabla-2.tga. Write 'blabla' in the custom name. Do the skin support transparency ? yes. Via images files and via WOW API. Can i use BLP file? Yes. use custom load skin, and do like with any other tga file.
