Description
Game Update #67+ Compatible



Description:
This modifies the Start Button window to be used as a customizable Stat Bar.
  • Stats will spread evenly across the bar when when re-sized
  • Stats can be toggled on-the-fly.
  • Re-size the window vertically to access the buttons to toggle stats on or off (click the text).
    • All stats combined can be displayed at ~3990px screen width.
The mod comes with a per-PlayerName customization file. In this file you can chose which stats you want (or not) to show by default. Open the included text file to modify them. It has an example inside. You can set the default value in the config (currently false) so that you only have to define the stats that you want to show or hide.

Stats save per-character, to your uisettings file along with normal window settings. These save between sessions and between characters -- all from within game.


Installation Notes:
- How To: Install A Custom UI
- DrumsUI/*.* goes in your CustomUI/DrumsUI/*.* folder.
- eq2ui_custom.xml goes in your CustomUI folder.
- eq2ui_mainhud_startbutton.xml goes in your CustomUI folder.

If you already have a eq2ui_custom.xml you need to add this include:

Code:
<include>DrumsUI_custom_includes.xml</include>
If the window doesn't show up automatically the first time, use this command in-game:
Code:
/show_window MainHUD.StartButton

I am forcing open a window, using /show_window Custom.DrumsUI_menuwindow
and /show_window Custom.DrumsUI_StatBarWindow

So what else can I try? I really don't understand how I deleted all Drums stuff, started over, and still have same issue, that's weird to me.
Thanks for your inputs in advance.
yes, the "StatBar" uses the "StartButton" window, so using those other commands aren't helping you. The DrumsUI stat bar has a "MENU" button all the way on the left, and expanding it horizontally will display the stats. Check your Window Controls in your keyboard button settings and see if you can toggle the window with the key combination (or set one and try).

Nothing happens when I hit that. /show_window MainHUD.StartButton
The command did not do anything.
I have the start button accessible, and i can click what I want to put on my stats bar... the only issue is the stats bar is gone, and I believe it went off window, and I want to reset it. I have tried the following.
adjusted resolution to expand screen.
reset all windows using userinterface/gamewindows/reset all windows.
downloading just the stat's bar.
replacing the file with new stat's bar.

I just can't seem to find it. It's in the code you provided, and I can see it in the file, just not sure why it's not showing up on screen.

The UI is perfect. I just can't seem to "find" the stat bar. In the /show_window Custom.DrumsUI_StatBarWindow, it shows up what i can put on the stat bar window, (potency, crit bonus, all that stuff), but the bar itself has disappeared.
I have hit F10 to see if i was blocking it, but I have to tell you, I had it pretty far up on the screen, then it disappeared.
If there was any way you could help with that, appreciate it.

Yeah, I agree -- it's a weird issue. That command does work to open the menu window (yay!), but the stat bars are still missing (boo!). Thanks for replying about all this mess on your vacation, though!

For now, to force the DrumsUI main menu window open you can just use this command:
/show_window Custom.DrumsUI_MenuWindow

I copied the specific server_character_eq2_uisettings.xml file and the entire DrumsUI folder (after deleting the other ones first) from the PC to the laptop, but it still does not show the Menu bar. I'm going to try to put it on the other (Toshiba) laptop to see if the problem is unique to this (HP) laptop.

Is there another file that I should be copying over?

Tried putting it on the other laptop -- bar does not show there either.

I'll try to code in a special function for making the window appear front and center like I did with the threat window. Will have to wait til next week when I'm back home though. Cheers.

It's like this with all characters on this laptop, it seems. Maybe it's the weird widescreen res (1366x768). On my desktop PC the bar is there...

I did ALT-O and unselected "Allow Windows Offscreen" as well just be be safe.

It seems like your Start Button window may be off screen somewhere, out of view.

Re: Re: Missing Menu Button

Well, I tried that Nothing happens when I type/enter that. In fact, I started again with a clean install of the full interface (with no Infocenter) and then used the Updater. This screenshot is what I saw when I hit F10 immediately upon entering EQ2 after the clean install.

It's on the left-most side of the window.

I did add the Infocenter to the interface...would this explain why the menu button is not appearing?
