I still need to update my screenshots and description, but I didn’t want to keep you waiting any longer. Click on the image above to go directly to the download page.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please post them in the comments below.
Quick and Easy Install Instructions
- Download the package from WoWInterface and extract it to your desktop.
- Navigate to your WoW directory.
- * * * IMPORTANT * * * Drag your existing WTF and Interface folders out onto your desktop. This step allows you to keep a backup of your existing UI.
- Copy and Paste or simply drag the contents of the GarUI package into your WoW directory. I recommend copy/paste just in case you need to start over for any reason.
- Open your WTF backup folder and copy/paste or drag/drop your Config.wtf into the GarUI WTF folder. This isn’t abolutely necessary, but it allows you to retain many of your in-game settings (e.g., camera distance, mouse settings, etc…).
- Drill down through the contents of the WTF folder, renaming the generic folder labels as you go.
- Log into your WoW account.
- Click on the AddOns tab on the character screen, then make sure Load Out of Date AddOns is checked.
- Log in with the character who’s going to try on my UI.
- type in: /reflux switch GarUI
A couple of install screenshots to further illustrate…
At this point, the UI should be configured more or less. You’ll likely have to move the chat frame manually. To do this, just hover over it, then right-click on the General tab and click Unlock Window. Move and resize the chat frame as needed.
The UI is set up to work out-of-the-box for 1920×1200 resolution monitors, with the UI scale slider at this position…
In my tests, I found that my Unit Frames needed a little kick in the ass in order to get them to their designated location. To be sure they’re positioned as intended…
- Type: /suf
- Go to the Profiles tab
- Select Default from the Existing Profiles drop-down, then switch it back to GarUI.
- Unit frames should reposition slightly.
If you’re not running at 1920×1200, then you’ll probably need to adjust things a bit. One thing you’ll need to tinker with is KGPanels. Nearly all of the panels are parented to their respective addons, so if you reposition an addon, the panel will follow. If you need to adjust the size or position…
- type in: /kgpanels config
- navigate to the panel you need to adjust, then nudge it with the config settings.
I hope you like the UI! I’ll try my best to answer any questions you may have, but hopefully this post gets you up and running.
