Black Glass (W.I.P)
Ok since for long time I been wanted a glass glossy looking UI for difrent games like EQ2 DDO Etc and then for LOTRO.thinking it may not be possible intill I saw
Enfield Dark Glass.wich is cool UI btw.So i was inspired to do UI of my own.
I never ever done something like this before.Closes thing I used of paint program is M$ paint thats comes with windows xp and use ACDsee to cut and paste but thats it.So I started to look a free program to make my UI.I found paint.net at


This program is what I used with thier plug ins.
Btw Paint.net is free to use and its supported by donation.
Here a screenshot of my black glass version.Im still heavly working on it.Goshh man somany UI pics to repaint.I can see why Authors only release of couple UI every so often,it is very time consuming.
My wish is to do all the ui except the arrow icons deed arrow heads and some misc.I have no Idea when I be finish.Just startd a day later from Enfield UI release.Laters.

W.I.p Update #3
Thanks.I redid some UI for easier on the eyes,last time it was to bright white.
Now its darker and now using red highlights instead of blue cause I couldnt tell when I had something selected.With red is easy to see.Plus wanted to give little bit of wowish on the red.
Heres another pic now did the traits and items vendors.

After you are done this coud you make a full WoW-Ish UI with the little Gryphons and all? :)

Also when you make this, please make a bottom left corner version! :p

Brygard2007 01-29-2008 09:20 PM

I dont know if I can.This my first time makeing any kind of UI.Maybe later after Im finish with this one or later update it.For now just doing this basically to learn.Once Im more familar with the UI I will try.:)

P.S I played WOW 1 time for a month and that was 1 year ago.So I dont remeber the UI well.Maybe I look into it on some pics at later date.

W.I.P Update#4
It seems Im almost finish.Im still looking to see theres no mistake like on the screenshot below.I havent found the image for destiny selection box yet.Im still need to fix the tracking for hunter,the boxes are outside area I need to make them smaller.After that I want to edit the main toolbar one version with bag slots and other version with nothing but icon toolbar and xp bar.After all this
then i need to learned the xml thingie I have no clue so I need to read some guides for it.Once I have all this, I will be finish for testing on beta section.I wonder if I can upload my UI here.Do have to sign up for it? If so where?Thanks.

That looks really nice! Once you release it I may need to tinker with it a bit. I agree that the red highlights are easier to see than the blue, but (like you said) it reminds me too much of WoW...so I'd probably change them for myself. :p

W.I.P Update #5
I'm nearly finish,ok Im finish with the main UI which it did turn out like wowish glass.So at the moment I'm recoloring the red part.The release main UI will have purple hue like turbine logo.The red high lights will be included for people that want wowish feel.First pic is completed UI with red highlights,second pic is with the new color still working on it.I already narrow down and deleted unacessasy files and fiddle with the xml and have all pics in thier own folders instead in the main folder.Everything seems to work well.The only thing I havent tried is with fellowship and raid hopefully wont get a missing image cause Im such a noob.:p
Also I'm not going to mess with hope and dread image and vitals and some other misc,this is my wish list to do.Laters...
