About GrimUI

What is this? - This is a full replacement for the default Blizzard user interface(UI). The general idea came from a UI known as MazzleUI. The GrimUI core itself controls your unit frames, artwork, some action buttons and a whole lot more! Best of all, it does this with out you spending hours on placing frames. It looks and functions much like MazzleUI did, it is also similar to nUI if you are familiar with that. GrimUI out of the box should require no setup itself. Macaroon handles the main action buttons and is included. GrimUI will setup a default Macaroon layout. Check out GrimUI on Facebook GrimUI Fan Page

How do I use it? - First you must download this file. Then back up your current Interface and WTF folders in your World of Warcraft directory, in case you decide to revert back. It is best to delete your current WTF and any AddOns in the AddOn folder however GrimUI should install and function with other AddOn's just fine. Place the the files in the zip file you downloaded into the Interface/AddOns folder.

When you first enter the game on a fresh install the chat frames may appear funny, or its possible sometimes for errors to pop on fresh installs if your say under attack when you log in or in a party or raid. If your chat frames or other frames are out of place Right-Click the GrimUI button on the right side of the screen to access the various reset buttons in the GrimUI options panel. The options panel can also be accessed through the normal Blizzard AddOn Options.

GrimUI should now be setup! Other AddOns that are included with the GrimUI for your convenience may require additional setup.

Will it work for me? - This UI was designed on a wide screen in a 1920 x 1200 resolution. It was also designed to self adjust for any resolution. I have tested it at other resolutions and they seem to work fine. If you have any problems please post them in the bug section.

Please post bug reports here - GrimUI Bug Reports

Will it work in the future? - You can update most AddOns included in the package either here or at Curse without losing your settings. The GrimUI interface will continue to be updated and grow as long as their is sufficient interest from the community AND motivation for its coders ;) Any help testing, or coding would be greatly appreciated. Donations are even more appreciated! See donation button at the top or bottom of this page!

Would you like to see something added to the GrimUI? Or changed? Or maybe even removed?

Post feature requests here - GrimUI Feature Request

NOTE/UPDATE: Version 4.0.01 Has many variable changes, a fresh install is recommended!! If you experience errors please try removing the file.

PartyFrames are now movable as well as most other frames!!!! Ctrl-LeftClick just above your name or a party members name to grab a hold of the frame and move it. To reset the frames click the rest button in the GrimUI options panel.

You can attempt to use the WTF's from previous versions of the interface, but note this does not always work and can cause other problems.
Directions for using previous WTF files can be found here - [B]Dealing with WTF's**

Where did it come from? - The original design layout gos to Mazzle. A big THANKS to everyone here at WOWI and to all the folks who have been helping me as of late with coding. Special thanks to Vrul for the clock button code, mine was garbage his was superb! To Emelio for the blizzard move frames code. Special THANKS to Cargor and Vrul! Without them this wouldn't be happening.
