Description
Installation:
You must have Microsoft's .NET Framework 1.1 or better installed for UISwitcher to run.
Unzip to your EverQuest II directory (C:\Program Files\Sony\EverQuest II by default)

Basic Usage:
Run UISwitcher. (See Main Window screenshot)
Select a UI from the left-hand list.
Details on the selected UI will be displayed in the right-hand box.
Once you've selected the UI you want to use, click Set UI.
UISwitcher will rewrite your eq2.ini and launch the EverQuest II patcher.

AutoPlay Settings:
By default, UISwitcher will run the EQ2 patcher once you've selected a UI to load. To change this behavior, click the AutoPlay Settings button (See AutoPlay Settings screenshot.) You may select from EQ2 (with or without patcher), EQ2MAP Updater, Other (any file you specify), or Disabled (do not run any other programs after UI Switcher finishes setting your UI.)

Per-character and per-UI UI Settings File Management:
UI Switcher now includes a per-character UI Settings file manager. To access it, click the UISettings Files button (See UI Setting Manager screenshot.)

The top half of the UI Settings manager will allow you to Backup and Restore your characters' UI Settings files. It will also allow you to clone (the or button) one character's UI Settings file to one or more other characters. To select more than one character in the target list hold down CTRL while clicking each character you want to copy the source file to.

The bottom half of the UI Settings manager will allow you to define default UI Settings schemes per-UI. Select a UI Settings file from the left-hand list and a UI from the right-hand list and click the button to set a default per-UI UI Setting file. To clear a default per-UI UI Setting file, select the UI and click the Clear Default button. Whether or not a UI has a default UI Setting file associated with it will be displayed in the main window's details box. (You may optionally disable the usage of default per-UI UI Settings files by unchecking the Use UIS Defaults checkbox on the main window.

Notes:
UIs must be installed in the UI folder to register with UISwitcher.
UIs must have an eq2ui_skininfo.xml file to register with UISwitcher.
UI Settings files must have the filename format *_*_eq2_uisettings.ini and may be located either in the EQ2 folder or a specific UI's folder. (I.e. guk_uhed_eq2_uisettings.ini or UI\tyejaebottom\1280x1024_tyejaebottom_eq2_uisettings.ini)
You must have Microsoft's .NET Framework 1.1 or better installed for UISwitcher to run.

If you find any problems, or have any suggestions, please post to this thread.

^^^This problem has been fixed in the new version of ThorUI. Uninstall previous versions, then download and install ver. 4.6 and this should fix the problem.


Enjoy

typo...

The 'Get more UIs' button tries to go to www.eq2interace.com, instead of www.eq2interface.com.

Wow, this one was a lot more wide-spread than I'd thought. Thanks for catching it, that could have gotten very, very ugly. It's fixed in this version.

Edit: You were right on the money taco-man, when I changed the code over from using relative paths for the ini files to absolute I forgot the + "\\" + between then relative path code and the absolute path code in one branch of the UIS manager.

In the UI Setting > User Interface window, how does one able to tell which UI setting is set to which User Interface?

For example, if I have 4 characters and I set the UI Setting to User Interface as below, how can I tell which is set to which after setup?

Char1 (Guk) > Boho Mod
Char2 (Najena) > Kitchicor UI
Char3 (Najena) > Fenix Arcane Mod
Char4 (Lucan DLere) > Boho Mod

Is it possible to have some info from the User Interface Selector window to show which UI is associated with which UI Settings File?

Maybe something like when I select Boho from the selector window, it also gives info on which UI Setting files (or characters) are defaulted to Boho.
{Edit because I wasn't fully awake when I first read this} I think you're thinking of it backwards. It's not so much a UI being associated with a UI Settings file, but the other way around. In other words, using your example:

I load Boho and enter the game using Char1. I align all my windows the way they should be to look right with Boho. I then exit the game and set Boho's defaul UIS to Char1. Whenever I select Boho from the switcher it will now replace every character's UIS with the settings that I configured using Char1.

Now I load Kithicor and again enter the game, this time as Char4. I set all the windows the way they should be for Kithicor and tell the UISwitcher to assign Char4 as Kithicor's default UIS. Whenever I select Kithicor every character's UIS will be set to exactly the way Char4's was when I defined it as the default.

Lather, rinse, repeat. The big differentiation is that it isn't a UIS/UI linkage, the UISwitcher actually copies the specified UIS to UI/ModFolder/default_default_eq2_uisettings.ini and then copies it back over all of the character UISes when you apply the mod in ModFolder.

i see why you got the exception, but he will have to hunt down why his code is doing it when vb .net gets a directory path it doesnt have the trailing \ so he may have just forgotten to add it somewhere. its trying to read
C:\Program Files\Sony\EverQuest IIblackburrow_humudce_eq2_uisettings.ini

As long as you use the same UI every time you log in a given character you should be okay. But you're right, the per-character files are pretty important when it comes to UIs. They're next on my list of UI management programs, although I may end up integrating it with the switcher.
