File Description

nUI is a user interface replacement. 100% standalone code designed to feel like Bliz meant the UI to look this way. nUI removes a ton of clutter from the display, provides detailed targeting information, an integrated HUD, cooldowns and more all in a tightly integrated single-source addon that requires no user configuration.

In the long run, nUI is intended as an alternative to a pile of add-ons such as custom unit frames, custom action bars, HUDs, minimap mods and so on. It is *NOT* the intention of this mod to be compatible with every other mod that exists. In many cases, it is the intention of this mod to replace other third party mods with a single tightly integrated and efficient mod.

There are many features built into nUI, please take the time to read this description and notes so you are aware of the available features and options! In addition, I do try to keep accurate notes about changes made in each release and known bugs. Please review the patch notes and known issues when you have questions.

Currently supports integration of Titan Panel, FuBar, Mob-Info2, Recount, Omen3, KLH Threat Meter and Threat 2.0. nUI is compatible with nearly all third party mods including popular mods such as DBM, Auctioneer, Grid, Healbot, SCT, etc.

Installation Guide

   1. Exit "World of Warcraft" completely
   2. Download the mod you want to install
          * Make a folder on your desktop called "My Mods"
          * Save the .zip file to this folder.
          * If, when you try to download the file, it automatically "opens" it... you need to RIGHT click on the link and "save as..." or "Save Target As". 
   3. Extract the file - commonly known as 'unzipping'
      Do this ONE FILE ZIP AT A TIME!
          * Windows
                o Windows XP a built in ZIP extractor. Double click on the file to open it, inside should be the file and all of the folders needed. Copy these outside to the "My Mods" folder.
                o WinRAR: Right click the file, select "Extract Here"
                o WinZip: You MUST make sure the option to "Use Folder Names" is CHECKED or it will just extract the files and not make the proper folders how the Authors designed 
          * Mac Users
                o StuffitExpander: Double click the archive to extract it to a folder in the current directory. 
   4. Verify your WoW Installation Path
      That is where you are running WoW from and THAT is where you need to install your mods. 
      For most users, that will be C:Program FilesWorld of Warcraft
   5. Move to the Addon folder
          * Open your World of Warcraft folder. (default is C:Program FilesWorld of Warcraft)
          * Go into the "Interface" folder.
          * Go into the "AddOns" folder.
          * In a new window, open the "My Mods" folder.
          * The "My Mods" folder should have a folder in it named "nUI"
          * Move the "nUI" folder into the "AddOns" folder 
   6. Start World of Warcraft
   7. Make sure AddOns are installed
          * Log in
          * At the Character Select screen, look in lower left corner for the "addons" button.
          * If button is there: make sure all the mods you installed are listed and make sure "load out of date addons" is checked.
          * If the button is NOT there: means you did not install the addons properly. Look at the above screenshots. Try repeating the steps or getting someone who knows more about computers than you do to help. 


When you download a mod, please be sure that the mod is compatible with your translation of wow. Some mods only work on the US versions, while some only work on some of the various European versions. These variations are called "Localizations".
TOC Numbers (Out of Date Mods)

When Blizzard patches WoW, they change the Interface number. This means that all mods will be "out of date" unless or until the author releases a new version for that interface. Some people go into the .toc files and update the numbers themselves, but this is STRONGLY advised against as it will cause problems locating possible incompatibilities addons. When you log into WoW after a patch, you DO NOT have to delete your interface directory. All you have to do is simply tell WoW to ignore the interface numbers and load all the mods anyway. All you have to do is, while at the "character select" screen, look in the lower left corner and click on the "addons" button. A window will pop up listing all your installed mods.

If you look in the upper left corner of that window there should be a box that says "Load Out of Date AddOns". You want to CHECK this box. Now simply go into WoW normally and all your mods should load. As of the 1.9 patch, you will have to do this after EVERY patch/update that Blizzard posts! If you encounter any problems with a mod after a patch, please be sure to let the author of the mod know so they can fix it.

Mac Support

WoW addons are not platformed based. As such, they can be used on either Mac or PC. You can extract both .zip and .rar files on a Mac using StuffitExpander.

The final directory structure should look something like this...
