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.

    They are not done yet...

    hi wutname...

    Youve already mentioned the party frame has a bug when in combat.  i do get a bug when using the Blizzard Raid frames in Party (dont like big portrait frames).  if using Blizzard Raid Frames in Party (located in interface options) party / raid dont update for me either in or out of combat.  i have to do a refresh every time i want to see whos in the party/raid, and it doesnt update added / leaving members.

    hope this is the same bug as youve already found.

    good work!

  • #1083

    You can disable the portrait on party frames and make them smaller by changing the frame style. (I to dont like having the portrait on)

  • #1085

    I have the same problem.  I have SpartanUI party frames disabled and I use the Blizzard default raid party frames for any 5 man stuff I do.  When you join a group, the frames do not show.  I have to /reloadui to get the default Blizzard Raid Party frames to even show.  When I leave the group, its stuck as well and I have to /reloadui again.  

    This happens in or out of combat.  The default raid frames do not seem to be updating at all.

    Thanks for keeping this great UI alive Wut.

    Is there a way to go back to the old blizzard defualt raid frames? I don't like haveing all the player names going across my screen if i can help it. Also I don't see away to drop the markers like witht he blizzard ui.

    Otherwise still in love swith spartan and keep up all the improvements!

  • #1078

    There is still a bug - if you open world map during combat, you get lots of errors caught.

  • #1075

    WoW thank you so much, I used this ages ago and thought I could never live without it... Then development died and well I moved on to using LUI which I have grown to love. But now that development is back on this, Its time to get my baby back. Thanks tons for all your work and keeping an amazing GUI maintained.

    3.1.3 should be out soon waiting on guildy to confirm a fix

    Change Log:
    Fix - Monk class icon not showing in party frames
    Fix - Monk Statue moved to the right of the CHI
    Fix - Party frames now properly update when someone was invited while in combat.
    Fix - Moved the Extra Power bar (Petrification bar in MV) to the left so its aligned with the player frame to account some people having a issue in Shado-pan Monastery where the bar overlaps with the extra action button on the last boss. 
    Removed - SpartanUI no longer hides blizzard buffs, blizz does not allow addons.
    Fix - Misc bugs

    Sorry its taken so long to get some of these out, Daileys, to many Daileys.
  • #1070

    Im still having the issue of when I add someone to a group or raid I cant see them till I reload ui.... uninstalled and reinstalled the addon just to see if it would help. This issue just arrived with the last patch. Any idea's would be aperciated. 


    Lev the add on btw, keep up the good work.

  • #1072

    This is a issue with the in combat update not triggering when you leave combat. it will be fixed in the next update. i am waiting on a guildy to confirm a diffrent fix for me first.

  • #1067

    What happen to the animated bars?
    Also, how do we get 3D portraits?

    It's been a while since I've played WoW and I remember being able to use other mods (such as X-Perl I think?) to get 3D portraits. Seems like SpartanUI has lost some features and compatibility. Here are some links to old screenshots;

    Also appears that I cannot change the way the health bar or focus bar depletes. Whether from left to right or right to left.

  • #1066

    Got a problem with the unit frames - they still show up as the original, in the top left corner - as in vanilla WoW. I can't seem to find any option or means to change them, or have them appear down in the center of the screen, as shown in the screenshots.

    Before "installing" SpartanUI + Bartender4, I deleted everything in the WTF-folder, as well as every single file in the Interface/AddOns-folder. Maybe just emptying those two folders isn't enough? Prior to this I had quite a handfull of addons installed. Is there an easy way to change the original unit frames, and their position, into SpartanUI-style?

  • #1065

    Hey there i've got a prob that ur Ui doesnt overwrite the normally WoW Actionbar how can i turn the old off?

    First of all once again I appreciate how much work you put into one of my favorite add-ons.  Its great it works again, I have used it for years even when it was broken.  I know it must be a pain to try and help everyone and you're doing a great job.  I asked this question before and was wondering if there is any chance of this being done.  I use Spartan with Sunnart, and Sunnart has a option to be in the foreground, or background.  You used to be able to have Spartan over top of Sunnart, but now it sets behind it.  This seems like a easy fix of bringing spartan more foreground, but I am no programmer so IDK.
