********************
BTex version 9.1
********************

A development of Tiggy’s excellent addon

Original file/addon can be found here :
http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info7906-BTex.html

What is it? :
————-
Btex (for ‘Bottom TEXture’) is a very lightweight addon for World Of Warcraft providing Background texture at the bottom of the screen and was created by Tiggy.
It contains a package of pre-made skins, a simple menu for settings skins, texture height,width,transparency,colors, positions, viewport,etc ..

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)

First unzip it into your interface\addons directory. For more info on installing, please read install.txt.
Now just run WoW and once logged in, type ‘/bx menu’ to get the options screen and choose a skin.

Making your own skins :
———————–
Download 1 of these PSD files to get started.
http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info20361-BTexPSDExample.html
http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/fileinfo.php?id=14746 Thanks to Bornabe for sharing this.

When done, make 4 tga like this :
– image must be in RGB,
– Width and height must be a 512×256,
– Color depth must be 24-bit (8x8x8),
– 8-bit alpha channel must be present (thus making a 32 bit depth),
– Image must be uncompressed,
– Image must be TGA or BLP

if you make your own, remember to share =)

How can i share my artwork ? :

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.
