    • Within this tutorial, you'll find how to remove the extended interface panels on Classic Graphics.
      • To clarify, we're talking about what is displayed in the image below.
    [​IMG]
    • To remove these panels, only two imports are required, depending on the amount of races you're looking to remove the panels for.
      • NOTE: These imports are dependent on the race selected by the user, as they overwrite Human/Orc/Undead/Night Elf interface individually.
    • If you're looking to only remove one races interface, you only need to import one set of the two files. However, if you're looking to remove it from every race, you'll need to import the set multiple times under different paths.

    Tile05.dds
    Tile06.dds

    Human Path:
    UI\Console\Human\HumanUITile05.dds
    UI\Console\Human\HumanUITile06.dds

    Orc Path:

    UI\Console\Orc\OrcUITile05.dds
    UI\Console\Orc\OrcUITile06.dds

    Undead Path:

    UI\Console\Undead\UndeadUITile05.dds
    UI\Console\Undead\UndeadUITile06.dds

    Night Elf Path:

    UI\Console\NightElf\NightElfUITile05.dds
    UI\Console\NightElf\NightElfUITile06.dds

    • NOTE: There may be a path that allows one import to cover all races - I have not been able to find it though; please comment below if you know!
    • Once you have the files imported under these paths, save your map and then launch it to discover there is no longer any extended panels, with no side effects such as Hit Point bars displaying underneath the main frame.

      [​IMG]

    • We're now finished with removing the extended panels, enjoy!
    • NOTE: If you wish to keep only the bottom or top half of the extended interface as shown in the first image you'll need to retrieve the specific races interface you want from CascView and only erase the part desired. An example is shown below where I've began to only erase the bottom half.

    • Once the desired removed part is gone, simply overwrite the original and import with the paths listed above. In order to match what I have done, you'll want to use the settings listed above.
    • If you're curious how this works with Reforged enabled, it will slightly cut off a portion of what looks to be the main frame, but is actually reaching into Tile05 & Tile06.

    I am unable to download the files for the Tiles. I just made a discord account for this :) That might explain why I am not send to the discord server that contains the files. Why don't upload them here as a zip file via attachments? You know, just in case the links die in some future.

    And your simple and to the point method should work in the latest legacy version as well, right? After all, the method seems to me just texture changes.

    I must say finally a solution appears for that baggage.

    My apologies, that was left over from the paste bin copy. I'll upload it via attachment to the post now.

    edit: sorry again, did not see your question about legacy. No, this will not work prior on patches prior to reforged because the black box underneath extends across the entire screen. You can do other things to remove the black box, but are left with issues such as HP bars being shown underneath the entire interface, etc.
