What is it? :
-------------
Btex (for 'Bottom TEXture') is a very lightweight addon for World Of Warcraft providing Background texture at the bottom of the screen. It contains a package of unique skins, a menu option for settings texture height and choosing skins. All skins are compatible with Xart(Ace) and ElectrofluxTextronator(Ace) i chose to do it like xArt so that any textures made for xArt or ElectrofluxTextronator can be easily used for BTEX2 as well.

What can it do? :
-----------------
- Put a texture of your choice on the bottom of the screen via menu options (use /bt menu or btex menu),
- Set height of your texture,
- use any other TGA alpha channeled texture from other addon like Xart or ElectrofluxTextronator, or any other "pack" of skin,
- work in any resolution (1920x1200 is max),
- i try to have low memory usage

How do I use it? - First unzip it into your interfaceaddons directory. For more info on installing, please read install.txt.
Now just run WoW and once logged in, type /bt menu to get the options screen and choose a skin.

FAQ :
-----
How do I run menu config ? type "/bt Menu" or "Btex menu" in the chat windows

Why the download is so big ? it's because it contain many images

Do the old XART skins work with BTEX2? yes, just put them in the skins directory

Do the skin support alpha channel ? yes, but you cannot modify the transparency in game. (i'm working on it)

How can i add my own skin ? just put it in the /skins directory and add them to btex.lua dropdown menu like this :
Exemple for Royalbar-1.tga
at line 286 --menu item8 -------------------> set a next number
info.text = "Royalbar"; ---------> Change the name of your skin
info.value = 8 ; --------------->
info.func = function() MyDropDownMenuItem_OnClick() end;
info.owner = MyDropDownMenu;
info.checked = nil;
info.icon = nil;
UIDropDownMenu_AddButton(info, level);
and at line 317 add :
elseif (this.value == 8) then -----------> the number of the menuitem
TEX_CHOICE = "Royalbar";
TexturePreview();
