Thread: My customized Monk UI

    Default My customized Monk UI

    Image



    I created this UI to suit the needs of ONLY my monk. Here is a list of what it contains:



    - Cold steel backgrounds for buttons/window frames.



    - Old style Inventory for easier management.



    - Colorized (easier to read) compass.



    - Mend timer. Counts down from 6 mins repeatedly. Uses the pet info window (Alt-F1). Just remember what it says when you hit Mend. =)



    - Added slots at bottom of the Hotbutton window for pants, right bracer, first inventory slot, last inventory slot, left ring, and range slot for easy swapping.



    - Added Primary and Secondary melee weapons to the top of ALL containers. Just open your weapons bag for easy swapping.



    - Removed unused icons from the window selector



    - Buff window has icons and buff names.



    - Group Window also includes your health, xp, aaxp, and resists in the order magic, fire, cold, poison, disease. Also shows group member's % of health.



    - Player Info window is much smaller for easier placement near target window to compare life. Also contains weight, AC, and ATK.



    - Target window shows % of health.



    - This pic does not show the new bard songs window yet, but I have updated all the necessary files so the UI will work with today's patch (1/9/03). I may edit that window in a future version if needed.



    This UI was made for 1024x768 resolution. If you're interested in trying it out then you can download it here.



    Due to the fact that I'm limited to using Geocities for webspace at this time you may need to open a NEW web window and put in the address manually because they do not like people linking directly to them. =P The address is:

    I like it all except for the hotbox button, so all I did was switch the eugee one for it and now it's perfect <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">

    Most on here I REALLY like. Not too far off from the ideal in my head that is my monk hodgepodge I have no clue where i got it and Drakkah's mod. Only one thing for sure I would like to see... melee stat buffs displayed somewhere. They don't need to be large but it help at a glance to see what kind of buffs you need. even CHR helps for merchants and WIS/INT for tradeskillers. If that could be fit in with the song window adjustment.. this would become my UI for sure!

    Ok have a question that maybe you can answer on your UI. On the image it looks like all your box's/chat/buff's is off your screen.i.e. leaving only the actual game on the main screen. Now am I correct in saying this, or is it all an illusion. You remember how in the old/velious version you could sit in F-10 mode non full screen with all your accessable stuff on screen, but non of the actuall play screen was taking up by this other crap. Thats what I am looking for...I need to get rid of the clutter on my screen, but yet I still need all the box's....am I doomed forever with stupid Verants logic in upgrading crap products again? Any help here would be appreciated...thanks!

    You are correct. I used the /viewport option in-game to size my screen to fit within the confines of the outter boxes. That way I can still see everything as before, just in a smaller window. I hated trying to click through the transparent boxes and getting the window menu's all the time =P.

    Please explain to me (computer illiterate), how do you use this /viewport command? Thanks!

    It's pretty simple. The /viewport command defines how much of your screen to display from the upper left to the bottom right by using 4 numbers. If you're running in 1024x768 resolution then your default /viewport is set to the size of the entire screen or 0 0 1024 768. The 0 0 indicates the upper left corner and the 1024 tells how many pixels to view to the right from that point. The 768 tells it how much to view below that. The screen you see for mine is set for something like /viewport 90 0 800 550 (guessing, I don't recall my exact settings). Just mess around with it til you get it where you like it. If you don't like the settings just type /viewport default and it will go back to full screen.

    Hmm, I get no errors at all. I suggest you make sure you start with a BLANK directory before you unzip my UI there. If that does not work, and you still get the error message then please check the file called UIErrors.txt located in your everquest directory. The text file will tell you exactly which xml file is the problem.. and if it's one of mine then please post the the text here so I can fix it <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"> .



    *UPDATE*



    Just created a new songs window for this UI along the same format as the buffs window. The new songs window is now included in the original zip file or if you've already got this UI and just want to D/L the songs window alone then you can get it here.



    http://www.geocities.com/bob_m_fw/songs.zip is the link, incase that does not work.

    Gues I would like to run it in 1024X768 instead of 1152X864 but when I do that it shrinks my window and doesnt use my whole monitor.



    Problem I have at 1152 is type is just too damn small.

    Changed the buff and song windows to match in size and appearance today. If you want to change the slots in the hotbuttons area you just need to replace the EQTYPE to the inventory slot you would prefer.

    Thanks for the fast adaptation to the patch! Hopefully the patch to fix the patch wont mess it up again!



    I was UI lazy and never tried any of these until this last week. Played with a few and found this one to be just about everything I could want. I really need to learn a little about this stuff so I can make minor changes on my own (like the hot boxes). Thanks again for the fine skin and your diligence in updating it for neophytes like me! <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/happy.gif ALT=":D">

    This may be an odd question to ask given the target audience, but do you have any plans to adopt this UI for casting classes? I love the simplicity of the buff windows and the info contained in group / player windows, and it's quickly become the only UI I'd consider for my monk.



    However, I also play a wizard, and though I've attempted to tinker around a bit to change the health bar in the player window to display mana, I'm both inept and uncomfortable with the idea of mucking around with someone else's work.



    Anyway, the point of this is that this interface is too neat to be limited to pure melee only. Please, for the alts among us, consider a caster-enabled version.

    Jakeman72:



    The mend timer doesn't reset. You just have to remember what time it says when you hit mend. Next time that time pops up then so will your mend. You could set up a hotkey to reload the UI (which resets the timer) when you mend, but that usually takes a few seconds and could end up getting you killed.

    Which file? The Feb4 or Feb6? Anyways you can always get the whole thing updated from:
