As some caelNameplates users may know, the newer versions of this mod haven't looked like the display pics on the download page (http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info13961-caelNameplates.html) for some time and a lot of people are/were asking on how to get that look back with the current revision -- This is my goal (as well as other modifications). Seeing as caellian (the author) is not responding to those particular questions in the comments section on how to bring the old look back... I've turned to you guys (and girls).
Here's a list of what I would like to still modify:
1. Class Colored Health Bars For Raid/Party Members
2. Put An Outline Around The Level and Name Fonts
3. Darken Background Texture Behind Health Texture (Currently Way Too Bright)
4. Change The Border Around The Nameplate
Number 4 pertains to this "old look" I was talking about and it is the last piece to the missing puzzle, however, I may be out of luck. I found some old CNP Lua files which showed that caellian had used the file "border1.tga" for the border texture. This file doesn't exist in the current set of folders as far as I can tell.
However, I did find this...
http://code.google.com/p/caellian/source/browse/trunk/caelMedia/borders/?r=784#borders...which shows those old border texture targa files. I can't seem to get those files off of there through Chrome and I don't have an SVN program to try. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone knew how to grab those from that SVN (if it is even possible).
For anyone that would like to help out and needs access to the Lua file (caelNameplates.lua) here is mine that I've modified...
For Design Reference:
CNP in its unmodified, default form as of the latest release (r20 011211):
The "old look" I'm trying to get to:
My new modified version:
That last pic also shows how bad the current/missing health blend together (#3 on my list) compared to the "old look".
Any and all help is appreciated as always. Thanks.
