    Jncl,

    I just read about 50 pages of posts and I have to say you must have some incredible patience.

    Anyway, I have a request to skin Altaholic which can be found here http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info8533-Altoholic.html

    I'm not a programmer but am trying to learn. Took me some time to figure out skinner and I still really don't understand the gradient but I've come up with some really pretty backgrounds. I had a tricolor background goin on when i first started using it that was so cool and then messed with it too much, lost it and now can't figure out what i did but i STILL love this addon. I'm like you messin with something that is fine, i usually break it hehe...Thanx for this wonderful addon.

    I'm using this site to teach me about this stuff and I'm going to be asking some questions, probably a lot of them. All I can hope for is that people will be kind enough to answer them.

    I have a new question. I've been opening every mod I download and looking at it's folders and various files. I noticed that all the Ace mods i've downloaded all have libraries and i guess that's to run them. The mod has to have a reference point. My question is...Do Ace mods use other Ace mods' libraries? Sort of like some microsoft programs use other program's files. If the answer is no, has anyone ever thought of just making one big library or a set of libraries that every mod user would have to download and then all the mods would work off the same libraries? Or is that just not possible since the mods themselves couldn't run without WoW.

    Thank you. I have the interface toolkit downloaded but have never cracked into it yet. I will do what you've suggested and see what i can come up with.

    Let me start by saying I am not a programmer. I know very little about it at all. The closest I even come to it is through using visual basic in microsoft word for macros while doing medical transcription for 15 years. I recently had to quit work because of medical reasons. I have waaaay too much time on my hands and got into mods for WoW. Now my whole UI except for buffs is anything but generic. I use other's add-ons that I like a lot but wish they were different in some ways to suit my preferences so I decided to see how hard it was to learn this business of coding. I can't do school, i fail at school due to a learning deficiency due to Klinefelter's syndrome. But I do have the capacity to learn hands-on, allbeit slow with some things but nevertheless I would like to learn. Maul of Trinitybars2 told me about Textpad. I've been looking at LUA files for about a month and trying to understand it. I find myself exiting WoW to read oodles of code that I have no idea the meaning but it keeps drawing me back in. I've learned a little here and there about this foreign computer language. That's my brief history. In short I'm a complete and utter noob and hope that you will be patient with me.

    My dilemma is I'm tired of the (4) fonts that all the mods offer and was wondering if SharedMediaLib would allow me extra fonts, textures for backgrounds, etc for tweaking my UI. My questions is with the newest changes in the WoW API and all I need to know what I need and what is involved. Is SharedMediaLib a standalone. Can I stick that badboy just in my addons folder and whatever addons use that kind of library will detect it or does it need to go in other folders of existing addons? And if so, there would be comments and strings and such I would need to add in various files. I don't want to screw it all up, you see. I don't want to be the problem. I'd rather be a solution or a guinea pig or something. Anyway, is the above mentioned possible and what version of the libs do I need? For backgrounds I use skinner, frames AG, was using xperl but got tired of not being able to tweak more. When I started using mods it was just CTRA for raiding which has progressed into a crap load of mods which have created a symphony that dances in my mind and is always changing. It's addictive, I can't go for 1 day without tweaking some change in it. I'm constantly moving shit around but it makes me happy. I have 7 70's as of yesterday my druid just hit 70 and have a different set up for each.

    Anyway, I tend to get gabby since there is no one to talk to but my boyfriend and he's at work most of the time. I'm hoping to keep learning form you all. Hope I haven't made a nuisance of myself already.

    posted a message on Skinner and gradients
    I know what the definition of a gradient is but I'm having trouble figuring out how it works in skinner. I love skinner and I've come up with some awesome backgrounds but I would like to understand the gradient effects of it better, or at least a tiny little bit. By playing with it I've figured some things out but I wish I knew what I was doing from the start and could get a look I want and know exactly how to do it.

    By the way, I have been wanting to learn how to code addons and reading Ace and the wiki has helped me a lot. Thanx to all who work on this stuff.
