Animated Red Dragon Knowledge Book
 
Description
************************
Updated 3/19/2005
The Dragon Eye Blink animation has been slowed down, so the dragon doesn't blink so fast. The Animation part of the Code had to be re-done, but I think it looks better with a slower blink. No other changes were made to this mod, only the Animation Speed.
************************

This is a port of the Red Dragon Spellbook that was available for EQ1. It has been re-created for use with Everquest II. The Dragon has semi-transparent wings and appears to be holding the Knowledge book in it's claws. Click on the Spikes on the Dragon's head to close the window (has roll-over tool tip). The upper left hand button brings you back to the first page of the selected tab. The upper right hand button brings you to the last page of the selected tab. The Left Center and Right Center buttons move the pages on the tab by 1 page at a time. The Buttons for the Tabs (Abilities, Spells, Combat Arts, and Tradeskill) appear under the Knowledge book.

And the Dragon's eyes are animated to open and close while the book is open.

Not sure how many people are having this problem, but the eyes are doubled in-game. I don't even know when it started happening for me, but it's also like this on a friend's computer. If I knew anything at all, I would try to fix it myself, but... well... I'm clueless when it comes to this stuff.
The problem may be you are using the red dragon images with the blue dragon UI file. At least on my system it seems that is the case. It is likely that the animation files are slightly different so the UI file used to piece it together is a bit off when used with the wrong animation.

modified to add sort?

I love that the dragons are here. I had them in EQ1 and was delighted to find they'd been modded for eq2. Will you be updating them to add the sort function? Since I am mod-challenged, I'm afraid to try and do it myself.

nm...duh...I just saw the patch

I'm a bit confused, both the Red Dragon and Blue Dragon are in the Miscellaneous Section, as there is no sections under Downloads\Interface Pieces for Knowledge Books or Spell Books. The main reason behind this is there aren't really enough mods to the Knowledge Book and Spell Books to warrant a seperate category.

Just an idea, though, maybe you can make it so the eyes blink less frequently? I know this was the case in eq1 and I do find it a little off-putting while searching through spells to have him look like theres something caught in his eye and he needs to blink it out.

Oooh and the transparent wings just make it! this really is a beautiful mod.
Thank You for the complements... Unfortunately there isn't much documentation on doing animation in the EQ2UI's I patterned my Animation code from the post that beastnic posted here....http://www.eq2interface.com/forums/showthread.php?t=426

Changing the Time Values in the Animation code did not seem to do squat, the eye blink animation If I remember correctly is actually 12 frames (12 different images), when I first started the mod with the animation the dragon blinked very fast. I managed to slow it down some by adding additional lines of code that repeated several of the Frames in a row, before moving on to the next frame of the Animation. When I tried increasing the number of repeated frames above what is currently set, the dragon seemed to stutter when it blinked. I may go back and revisit the Red and Blue Dragons again this weekend hopefully and see if I can slow his eyes down some.

The code in EQ1's UI was much more suited to Animations but that was because of the EQ1 Inventory Window where it animated everyone's Class Animation. EQ2 doesn't have that .

I can not take all the credit for the Original Book, it was a UI mod created by Thangor for EQ1 back in October of 2002. I reworked the graphics to use the .dds format and did the Layout and Coding for use with EverQuest 2. Just want to give credit where credit is due.
