Extended blizzard bars

Postby Rocketz » Thu Nov 29, 2007 11:38 am

Hey all.

I'm a sucker for the blizzard bar, I really like them. But I recently got a 21" widescreen and it just looks a bit bare... it only covers 2/3 of the bottom of my screen, if that, on my chosen UI scale - which I don't want to change.

Is there a way that I can slot in an extra actionbar, or just a few more buttons onto the standard blizzard bar? thereby making the whole bar wider?

Also, any suggestions for really low memory unitframes that look similar to blizzard UF but have more information on them?

Thanks in advance,
Rocketz.

well there used to be Discord Art and and a few others. I don't know of any that are still around though.

I guess you could use eePanels to do some of that type of thing maybe?

Bongos dont do the art! though I do love them...

Tried and failed with discord, took forever to align etc, and that mod is such a mess these days..

With addons like that you can set the rendered area (for game gfx, not bars and chat frames etc.) to anything you want...
e.g. you can set the viewport so that it won't render any game graphix under your bars and chat frames... doing so will also move your avatar up a bit, since the game will still render the full frame and adjust itself to the new limits.

I moved the viewport (what you see from corner to corner with gfx) up a little so that I could have all of my bars at the bottom of the screen, but still have a completely uncluttered viewing area.

Makes it easier to see things behind you when you don't have bartender bars covering the legs of your toon.

Wasnt really what I was looking for, thanks for your help though.

Never got the hang of those viewport mods, they screw with my brain!

EDIT: Im using a pretty big widescreen and my FPS drops If I turn wow onto max resolution, would viewport help this in any way?
