    Nice StormFX, updated both of my skins now, same adress at before.
    Until cyCircled is updated to remove them from the main package, i don't know if people will have to do so manually to avoid a conflict, i did it anyway just in case.

    I really dig the new Vol skin. Is there anyway to make it a little bigger and with less spacing between icons?


    As a side note, that is what is so great about Onyx. The buttons are scaled correctly and there aren't huge gaps between them. I think with circular buttons it's harder due to the shape.


    That's exactly what i don't like about Onyx i'm afraid, the overlapping textures when using no spacing.

    I designed Vol and Gold Orbs to be used at a 50% scale down from the real texture size (unlike a wacky percentage like all the others have been done, no offense :S) and have next to no spacing between the textures. The gaps you see are the glow/shadow around them tapering off, and were intended to be that way. You can use minus spacing iirc, so i won't be making a change. If you can't, you're welcome to increase the defined texture sizes accordingly to get it how you want your end.

    Ok, sounds good. :) Will take a look when you post the changes and try converting mine.

    Well of course i was trying to report.. that's the point. The author was working on a new method for working alongside the new spam reporting in 2.1. Yet addon sites are showing it as being 2.1 compatable (which lead me to beleive that this was the new method), and it isn't, yet.

    Being able to report the spam was half of what made SpamSentry good, and until that functionality is back in working order, i'm going to simply go without it.

    Just pointing it out for others who maybe decieved by the "2.1 tag" being reported on sites and the timing of the release of this latest version.

    I wouldn't worry about it. Sairen is reworking the code and from my understanding, is going to implement my suggestion, which was to make the gloss a separate texture. The user should be able to then enable/disable it for each skin.


    Yes, but that still means all of us skin authors will have to remake the skins to support the new format and i doubt enough people will request a lack of gloss before then. :p

    Good to hear though. I'd rather not have some sort of hard coded gloss layer as i can think of many cases where really i just want the additional layer to add a background/border combo, not gloss. Either that, or add two new ones. ;)

    I thought the latest version was 2.1 compatable (that's how mirrors are reporting it atleast) but, i'm getting the following which is clearly because it's not updated :/

    Error occured in: AddOn: SpamSentry
    Count: 3
    Message: Error: AddOn SpamSentry attempted to call a forbidden function (NewGMTicket()) from a tainted execution path.
    Debug:
    [C]: NewGMTicket()

    :(

    Any plans for a non-glossy version of the Vol skin?

    Not really, but if enough people want it, i can do one i guess.


    @Phanx: Thanks, you're welcome. ^_^;
    @Gridius: What Phanx said.. *rollseyes*
    @Phanx: Thanks again, lol.

    Welcome back, and i hope the new version turns out well :)
    In the time being, i've finished my follow up skin.

    It's supposed to be simplistic, but stylish, for those who want something similar to the default buttons.
    Hope you enjoy.

    Thanks for the work around StormFX, worked fairly well. :)

    FYI, i will be tweaking my last skin, Gold Orbs so expect another post/edit then.

    EDIT: Vol has recieved a slight update, it's not needed but it was just a clean up.
    Gold Orbs has now been updated too.

    I don't know much about the layering, and had to read up a bit. But the work around StormFX gave means that autocast sits above the overlay, as i can see no way of putting it lower. This isn't desirable for non-square skins, so i had to settle with overlay and checked being on the same drawlayer, which means, randomly (though should be rare) overlay can be drawn above checked. You'll need to reloadui to get it to desired..

    We really need a new layer added badly.. also i see that highlight above overlay is the default way Blizzard has done it, which imo is retarded.. perhaps putting the text layers on a new frame level/strata above the buttons so highlight doesn't cover them up? :S

    Does it make any sense that SpamSentry is closing my social window, when I have it open? When it closes it, I also lose esc key functionality untill I open it again, and hit esc to close it.

    Same thing, though i actually suspect it's VanasKoS 3 beta. Are you running it too?

    Quick fix, open your character window, then your social window and you'll be fine until it does it again.

    Edit: Doh?

    Not sure if this is the best place to post this or not, but here goes.

    A while back, with no idea what Bartender2 was, someone asked me to make a skin for Bartender2_Circled based on some graphic i had done. I made it, and worked purely based on how the existing skins were done.
    I take it, cyCircled is the continuation of Bartender2_Circled, as it uses the exact same skining methods (with some new parameters now i see).

    So, i've updated my skin for cyCircled. So for anyone interested, here's a screenshot, and here's the file.

    But there are some problems i still see that exist.
    Equip - Still doesn't work?
    Flash - Same as equip? Not sure.
    Pushed/Checked - Why are these forced below the overlay texture? Because of this poor design decision, you can't really make any good use for these button states, you're forced to either make an outer indicator (Serenity) that overlaps on low padding, an inner indicator (Mine) or design it with the intent of leaving gaps in the overlay texture (Oynx?). Can you provide a way to customize the layer order, so pushed and checked can be put above or below the overlay. If there is a way to do this, and i've missed it, could you please explain. Alternatively, could you provide an extra "border" layer, below overlay, pushed and checked.
    Highlight - Still sits over the top of stack count and bindings, it should be under them.

    I hope some of these problems will be addressed, as i'm planning to work on a new skin, this time with a better knowledge of how to work around some of the quirks.

    Oh and another thing, seems the latest version (not build) on wowace is bugged. It seems whoever developed it used an earlier version as a base, as errors noted in the changelog since two versions ago, have returned. For now i've gone back a version and all is good.
