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  • Add-on X is outdated and doesn't work with Masque anymore.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.

    Any client-side patch resets the "Load Out-of-Date Add-Ons" setting. But I'll be updating soon enough. Just gotta finish and test a few things.

    Just a heads up, todays mini-update bumped this to out-of-date. Still works with loading out of date addons. Just letting you know though in case you haven't been on due to the floods.

    No, I can't give you a *date*. I work in the Missouri River Basin and the flood is screwing my schedule. You can blame the corps of engineers. I'm spending every free second I can on it, but I do have a life. I'll try to have to finished within a couple of weeks.

    Could you give us an actual date that an update will be deployed? Many of us have been patiently waiting for months now, and the only time that you've stated is "soon". It would be appreciated if you would let us know how close "soon" is.

    For the record, though, if you're using the code shown below, that may be your problem. Your skin callback is checking for a sub-group before it saves and you're not registering a sub-group...

    Just wait until I get the new version finished. You won't have to save the settings anymore.

    I've tried looking into how Dominos and Bartender Hook into Masque, but they are rather confusing. Your addon was the first one that made any sense. I can get Masque to skin the buttons, but I can't get the saved variables to save.

    Actively seeking insanity...

    @Goranaws: Go

    I wrote BlizzBuffsFacade the way that it is written because I cannot directly put LBF/MSQ code into Blizzard's functions without completely overwriting them, which would causes taint and limits compatibility with new WoW versions. The same goes for my other "...Facade" addons. If you would like to add LBF/MSQ support to your own addons, I recommend taking a look at another addon that has built-in support (Most action bar mods do, for example).
