About SpartanUI


Is designed to free your screen by moving a majority of the interface elements to the bottom. It is managed and maintained by Libidos of Azgalor. You can now join the project on facebook where i will be posting polls and asking other general questions about the direction of the addon.

Required Addons

Installation Note

Disable oUF if you have it installed, This is a addon library used for unit frames SpartanUI has this built in and having a version not compatible with SpartanUI will break things.

Slash Commands

  • /sui (Shows options window)
  • /spin (Toggles Spin Cam)
  • /sui version (Shows which version of SpartanUI you are using)

I found a bug how do i tell you? How do i request a feature?

Please, open a ticket on the web or right click on SpartanUI in Curse client and select "Report a Bug" .


Q. How do i Move my focus/party/raid?

A. As of 3.1 All frames are of the mentioned frames are movable by holding Alt and dragging no need to unlock or lock them with a command or button.

Q. I changed a option but nothing changed.

A. Some of the new options in 3.1 for Raid/Party Frames require a /reload to be done after changing them, no it will not always be like this but in order to get it out in time for MOP launch day some convenience had to be sacrificed.

    Dear creators of Spartan UI, after in stalling the new "3.3.1-nolib" had the same problem as the 3.3.0d, Minimap Icons show up when you hover the mouse over the minimap, please, i like to have allway, and all times the minimap icons hiden, aldho, when i choice this optioon the icons show up when mouse hovering above the minimap. An extra issue, when i select that i want to show the zoom buttons, the issue is the same, icons don't show always, even when i'm not hovering above the minimap.

    Great addon!

    Q: Is there a way to remove the text from the Player health/mana bar? (I.e., so that it would just be a graphical bar, with no text overlaying it.)

  • #1651

    There are too many bugs with this addon to be useful anymore.  I've never been able to make it display my buffs on the player tab, and now many things are broken which makes it unusable.  I've got a lot of miles out of this addon and it's been one of the best out there, but I'm sad to say I can't use it anymore.  I know it takes a lot of time and effort to keep up with all the Blizz patches so thanks for all the work taking Spartan this far! Looks like it's back to Pit Bull for me.

  • #1653

    I had to remove it due to at once point oUF was broken and people could not click off buffs. With the redesign of making the artwork seperate from everything and not having frames be dependent on the art this is one of the things i hope to get fixed.

    I am trying to make Spartan more Modular so I can track down issues and focus on specfic stuff better. Hope you come back at some point. WoD has reinvigorated my attention on playing. So you can expect more updates and features then what we saw durring MoP. 

    Right now I am working on a new Config UI as the Blizz Config feels cluttered.

  • #1650

    I hve a bug where the minimap buttons show up constantly when using spartanui. On top of that, icons that appear on the minimap, such as gathering nodes and the like, will not disappear until I reload the ui. I've even had icons end up all over my screen after looking at the world map.

  • #1649

    Great addon but having a problem. I do not have any other ui affecting addons on effect, but I cannot utilize the action bars of Spartan UI, and the are covered by the standard action bar that is there in base WoW without addons, anyone have an idea why that is?

  • #1648

    Hello. I dont want to see any debuffs on my target from other players, but i want to see buff/debuffs from npc and bosses, for example Sha damage reduction, or debuff for dispell. How to do it?

  • #1647

    Just want to say Thank You for such a great addon. 

    I've never once ran into a issue with it. 

    So please keep up the wonderful work. 

    Can't wait to see all the extra goodies you're adding to the addon finally come together and be released. 

  • #1646

    I've a little bug, if it can be fixed or if someone have a solution :

    i've disable the pet frame (i'm mage). But every time i launch the game, the frame show up when i've my pet (at the connection if he's up or when i invoc him).

    I must go in option (player frames > disable frames) to check & uncheck the pet frame.

    Minimap Buttons

    I've been having the same problem as some of the other people here with regards to the minimap buttons. Even when I go into the setting for each individual addon and disable the minimap buttons, they still show on the map. I'm sure this is a SpartanUI problem, as when I disabled the addon it fixed itself. Any help from the creator or anyone else who has had this problem would be appreciated.

  • #1644

    I wish I could help with this project. The main artwork that has been around since the original authors were working on it is still very good. However, since you've picked it up some of the new artwork is just a little off. The bars do not look like they really go with it anymore, and the border around the minimap is just not right. I also notice that the minimap icons were never skinned, even from years ago. The default UI windows were never skinned either. I'd like to see things be consistent, that's all I'm saying. As a designer, I could help with that, but I can't code anything.

    Also, there use to be some information about a new version of SpartanUI being made, from scratch by the original author, but I can no longer find anything about it. Also the author has paid for their website again and the original SpartanUI website main page exists, but the forums and blog sections don't. I don't know what's going on. But it's pretty darn mysterious.

  • #1643

    I can't use spartanUI anymore. When I enable it I can't select anything in game. No npc's, mobs etc. Has anyone else had this problem since WOD went live?

  • #1642

    The issue I am having is causing all my tracking nodes of herbs and ore to flash with my gatherer addon.. I switch to gathermate and same thing.  I disable Spartan, and the flashing stops.. This never used to happen before.  Until it gets fixed, I will not be able to use Spartan for my UI anymore. 

  • #1641

    Have a bit of a issue with this, no matter what profile I use newly made or pre-exsist (IE one bound to character) everything resets to default. Theres quite a few things I tend to change from the intial look so its a bit of a pain to have to re-do everything when I log. Any idea for this? 

  • #1640

    Can someone help me with locking action buttons?
