Bartender 4: Apathy Skin

Masque is a button enhancement engine that will skin the buttons of add-ons that support its features.

Note: You must have an add-on that supports Masque installed in order to use it.


  1. Browse to your add-ons folder. This should be located at World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns.
  2. Remove any existing Masque and/or ButtonFacade folders.
  3. Download the package.
  4. Extract or copy the contents of the package to your add-ons folder, exactly as they appear in the package.
  5. Log into the game. At the character select screen, click the Addons button and make sure that Masque is enabled.


  • Access the options panel via the /msq or /masque chat commands, or the Interface Options Window.


  • Add-on X is outdated and doesn't work with Masque anymore. Can you fix it?

No. If an author stopped development of an add-on, it's probably best that you find a replacement. I will not maintain special compatibility code for add-ons that aren't being maintained.

  • I created a skin for Masque. Now what?

Upload your skin to either WoW Interface or Curse and then post a link to the skin on this page.


Masque's documentation can be found here.

    I appreciate your help. You certainly helped me isolate the problem to Dominos. I have switched to Bartender4 and I'm not having any issue with your addon there. I wasn't having any issues with your addon before. As it has been proven.

    I removed that file just to see if it had any impact on the problem but it did not. I actually couldn't see what removing it did. It didn't appear to cause any errors.

    Thank you for your help once again. It was greatly appreciated.

    I merely did a quick scan of the files, so that's what stood out. It might not be that file. In any event, the issue is not with Masque and I've added to your post on Dominos' Curse page.

    Edit: For future reference, I don't recommend editing or removing add-on files as it could completely break the add-on. Instead, file a ticket or post a comment on whatever add-on(s) are causing problems.

    So, should we delete this file or are we stuck with it?

    Ok, I removed that file and the problem still happens. So, I am not so sure that is the problem. I have also clicked the Spellframe without the file and I don't see that anything happened. Not sure what the fix corrects but it's not obvious on my end. At this point I'm more inclined to spend the next few hours configuring Bartender for 8 toons I have and play.

    After reloading with Dominos active, I was able to reproduce the problem. Dominos includes a file named "multiActionBarFixer.lua" that actually turns the grid off for the MultiBar buttons, regardless of the user's setting. That's the problem.

    When you tested it, did you look at bars 3,4,5 & 6. Cause those were the ones with issues for me. That was across all 8 toons I checked. It's probably an issue with Dominos but when you say it works for you, I want clarification that those bars are working for you. If they are, it might be a matter resetting variable files and folders.

    Well, as I've said, I tested it with Dominos and it works fine on my end. The only other thing I can suggest is to delete your Masque and Dominos saved variables. But I'm pretty sure it's not an issue in Masque.

    I think the problem is definitely with Dominos. I installed Bartender and the Masque skins are showing just fine.

    Yep, I have show empty buttons turned on and it's just like Simmdogg is describing, only a few bars are showing empty. I go into the settings and uncheck then recheck the enable backdrop settings and they come back.

    here is a screenshot, if that will help:

    I have disabled all addons except Dominos, Masque and Masque:Apathy. The problem persists. The bars affected are always the same and across all toons. The action bars that display no Apathy background are: 3,4,5 & 6. All other bars show the background. I hope this helps.

    And the "show empty buttons" is checked and has always been checked.

    Works fine for me on Dominos (action bars). Make sure you have "Show Empty Buttons" enabled.
