Bartender 4: Apathy Skin

Masque (Formerly ButtonFacade) is a dynamic button skinning add-on.


  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 both ButtonFacade and Masque are enabled.

IMPORTANT: The package contains both a ButtonFacade add-on and the main Masque add-on. Both must be installed in order for Masque to be compatible with older add-ons.


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


  • Why the name change?
    Let's face it, "ButtonFacade" was long and ugly. "Masque"' is shorter, more descriptive and tons sexier.
  • Will my stuff break?
    Absolutely. I suggest not throwing it against concrete walls and the like. As far as add-ons go, most should work; or at least not throw errors. Some "features" implemented by add-ons may not work as they used to until the authors get a chance to update them.
  • Add-on X is outdated and doesn't work with Masque anymore.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.
  • Masque is installed but <add-on> isn't showing up in Masque's options. What's wrong?
    Since ButtonFacade was renamed to Masque, I had to include a compatibility add-on to ensure that Masque was loaded correctly. This add-on is called "ButtonFacade" and replaces the previous version. If, for some reason, this add-on is not installed correctly or is not enabled, Masque will not be able to skin any add-on that hasn't been updated and that is alphabetically before it in the add-on list. To resolve this issue:

    Curse Client
    Make sure any previous version of ButtonFacade has been removed. Install Masque. The Curse Client will install the "ButtonFacade" add-on correctly. Log into the game. At the character select screen, click the "Addons" button and make sure that both "Masque" and "ButtonFacade" are enabled.

    Manual Installation
    Make sure any previous version of ButtonFacade has been removed. Extract the contents of the zip file to your add-ons directory exactly as they appear in the zip file. Log into the game. At the character select screen, click the "Addons" button and make sure that both "Masque" and "ButtonFacade" are enabled.
  • 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.

    Don't set the bar to interactive. I think SBF uses the same code to show the borders for configuration as it does for the "Interactive" state. Also, SBF is out-dated. I'd suggest finding a new buff add-on.

    I have an issue with Masque that affects SBF (SatrinaBuffFrame). I have my Buff Bar set to 'Interactive' via SBF (this allows me to right-click-remove unwanted buffs). When I have this checked for any of my Buff/Debuff/Other bars the skin and coloration I have chosen in Masque is present where there are no current I simply get an empty box on my screen.

    Any help would be much appreciated and I realise that it may be the fault of SBF.

    Cheers, Splodey.

    @acirac: Go

    Yes, you're correct. Bagnon no longer supports ButtonFacade/Masque on its own (as of the most recent update) and a seperate addon is required (Bagnon Facade). :)

    Bagnon moved its buttonfacade support to a separate addon. You need to download Bagnon Facade.

    Strangely enough, I have both of those addons (ButtonFacade & Masque) enabled. The only addon that is not being affected (since last update) is Bagnon.

    Edit: I've tried reverting back to previous versions, but it appears that this did not fix the issue. Perhaps Bagnon changed something in the most recent update (6 days ago) that is causing this problem.

    Jyces, make sure that you have the included ButtonFacade add-on installed and enabled. This small add-on controls the bridge between add-ons using the old API and Masque.

    With the most recent update, Masque is no longer working for Bagnon. Not even showing it under the list of options under Masque. :o

    @skyesfury: Go

    You can download an old version from the Files section, but it won't be compatible with any add-ons or skins that get updated to the new API.

    And what do you mean it "screwed up your UI"?

    Is there a way to revert back to ButtonFacade since Masque isn't changing the skins of anything? This update screwed my UI.

    If you have an issue, please post a ticket.

    @corim75: Go

    This is fixed in the latest alpha.

    @rb4havoc: Go

    The only thing Masque does actively is check and adjust the shape of the Spell Alert. If you're changing skins or skin settings, you will lose frame rate because Masque is adjusting the layers of every single button. Outside of that, I've not noticed any frame rate issues.
