Not sure what the problem is but I fresh installed on top of ProfitUI Reborn (w/ EQ2Map) and the map does not have the POI Finder launch icon.

I tripled checked the xml files that are identified in the POI install instructions and everything seems fine.

If there is any information that would be useful to troubleshoot this let me know. Thanks.

Don't know what I did wrong here. First time install of this mod, pretty sure I did everything in the steps listed. However, when I click the button it brings up a window that is just a black background on which I can barely make out the words in blue. Attempts in changing opacity and frame/titlebar settings have proven fruitless.

What do I need to change?

Is there an eq2ui.xml file in your thorui directory? If so, take a look at the last paragraph in my install instructions section. Beyond that I couldn't say what else could be wrong. Especially if it is breaking your whole eq2map.

There is no point to make the window wide as Treemos cap his Button strings at 300, thats why i locked it at 300.
You can change the value but you won't see more text.

Re: Re: Re: An odd thing !!

Jnils might have been talking about the download page for his auto-updater program for this mod.

I've found the best cure for extra-bizarre problems with EQ2Map or the POI Finder is usually to delete (or at least temporarily rename the directory holding) all your custom UI mod files and then start over with a clean slate. Starting with EQ2Map (or whatever EQ2Map-including complete UI you use) and POIFinder. Then test things in EQ2 to make sure that fixed the problem. If it did, go ahead an reinstall the rest of your mods if any. Perhaps retesting after each to see if they re-cause the issue.

I have seen the problem with POI's sometimes not showing when first zoning in until you close and reopen the map myself, though not recently. I also have seen a problem with older maps having POI's for griffin towers or zone spots misaligned but I read in another thread that its a known bug with the map itself if you use a smaller then default size.

Is this not the Download page ??

I have followed every installation instruction to the letter . Checked and double checked before i even wrote my post ... And after doing that I get the problem I mentioned ..

Also another problem to even if a minor one aswell . Since I use the autoupdater it is hard to say exactly when this happened but a while ago like 2 - 3 weeks ago. Eq2 map itself startet not showing POI's sometimes after an
"inzone" zone or simply after a port . Quick fix is to simply reopen the map ..
I have no idea if it is in anyway related to POI Finder but might as well bring it up here too

An odd thing !!

I have an odd problem with POIFinder ..

Can't resize the finder window for some reason . If it is installed with the autoupdater ONLY it can be resized but the top 20 lines or so are kinda overwriting eachother. If it is installed with the manual version and then autoupdated the top 20 lines are fixed but the window cant be resized nomore ..

The window CAN be resized Vertically but NOT horizontally ..

Am I the only one with this problem or ??

Yours
Brorim

( Love this mod btw .. EQ2map without it is like cornflakes without milk )

No Visibility of the POI window in game

Hi there

I feel sure I have installed correctly and have previously had this mod working fine...

I have the POI button but nothing now happens when I press it...

I have tried reinstalling the POI addon, but still no joy?

Any help appreciated, Thank you

Great mod by the way.,...

What is the directory (type out the whole path from EQ2 on up) that you are unzipping the downloaded file into?

Have you ever successfully used this mod before?

Did you try to edit any .xml files with a text editor? If so which one(s)?

So there is probably a problem with that somewhere. Since you are getting the links it seems your POI Finder Install Directory is correct. Try going through section 4 of the installation instructions again. And if that doesn't clear it up, try removing everything and then starting fresh.
What got me was forgetting to rename the eq2ui_custom_example.xml file to drop the "example" part. After I did that, the dark background went away and I can see the correct background and the scroll bars.
