Ver2 (Large)

As requested a larger version of the panel
Just select "Steel Bottom" style in the parser insted of the default "Kosmos"

Pic shown is of the small version, Large one looks the same but is well....erm.. larger lol

Included in the zip is both versions, Just use the one you want.

Parser kindly updated and written by Ger.
(compatible with all styles)



Ver1 (Small)


A standalone version of Kosmos panel, Designed to be as small as possible and able to fit in almost anywhere on your screen.

First 3 buttons are to change the performance
Button 4 Toggles nightvision
Button 5 Toggles complex shader distance and shadows

All the info you need is here http://www.eq2interface.com/downloa...nfo.php?id=3492

Just select "Nedra" style in the parser insted of the default "Kosmos"

You will have to make a macro to get it to load up with the UI

I just found this and I believe I installed it correctly but where is the window in my UI? IS there some way I'm supposed to open it or something?

All files (using the Large setup) are placed in my custom UI folder including the custom_preset* files (done through the new preset.exe).
The custom_preset files are created where I want them but the buttons won't show up in-game (Preset 1-3).
When it failed to work I started to copy the files to different folders within the EQ2 folder-tree but haven't been able to make it work.

The window is, however, movable now though. One thing that suddenly worked

Any ideas?
If the buttons dont show up and you are using the new parser, then they must be in the wrong location they should be placed into the BottomV8 folder and nowhere else

Re: Re: More info

Found the custom preset files in my main EQ2 directory. When I moved those files to my custom UI directory I suddenly could use the switcher. Nice work.
Would be good if you included that in the description for n00bs like me heh.

I still can't move the window though. Is that possible?

Step 8. Select 'Laffs Large' or 'Laffs Small' depending on what window you are going to use and Click 'GO'.

The * will be the number associated with the button you have chosen.

Everything seems to work fine until this step.

I don't get any 'eq2ui_custompreset*.xml' file added.

I am, however, able to choose the 'Night-vision' and 'Shaders on/off' options in the game. The first 3 settings are NOT visible and thus not selectable.

I've placed all files from the Laffs LARGE directory (within the .zip file) in my custom directory (C:\Games\EverQuest2\UI\Lavandel) including the 'preset_parser.exe' file.
Each time I start the parser I need to 'point' it to the right 'eq2_recent.ini' file since it defaults to 'C:\Program Files\Sony\EverQuest II\eq2_recent.ini' which in my case is wrong. I don't even have a path to a directory called that.

So... Am I doing something very wrong here or have I missed something??

I'm also not able to move the performance-window and it doesn't seem to change if I add frames or not...

I post this here since the thread you are referring to in the description doesn't exist.

Thanks for all the hard work you guys put into this.. Don't give up.

More info

Creating Custom Performance Profiles


Step 1. In the game click the EQ2 (StartButton), Select [Options], Select [Display].

Step 2. Go down the list and set each option of the display configurations to your custom preferences.

HINT: You may find it useful to load one of the pre-defined profiles,
and then tweak specific settings up or down for your preferences.

Eample: Load the Pre-Defined Balanced Profile,
Under Display:Shadows: Un-Check [Shadows]
Under Display:Water: Environmental Cub Map Updates:
Choose[Fastest (One Time)].

Step 3. Click the [ACCEPT] Button. This is an important step!
Clicking the [ACCEPT] Button updates the “eq2.recent.ini” file.

Step 4. Press [ALT+ENTER] to go into Windowed Mode; Minimize the EQII Game Window.

Step 5. Navigate to your custom UI EverQuest II directory.

Example: If EverQuest II is installed on the C:\ drive;
Double-Click [My Computer], [C:], [Program Files], [Sony],[EverQuest II], [UI], [Custom]

Step 6. Double-Click on the program 'eq2ui_custompresets.exe' to run the program.

Step 7. Select the button you want this profile to be saved to.
Button #1 is the Top Button.
Button #2 is the Middle Button
Button #3 is the Bottom Button.

Step 8. Select 'Laffs Large' or 'Laffs Small' depending on what window you are going to use and Click 'GO'.
This will Copy your Display Settings from the 'eq2_recent.ini' file
and create a new .XML file called 'eq2ui_custompreset*.xml'.
The * will be the number associated with the button you have chosen.

Step 15. Click [Exit] to close the Custom Preset Parser Window.

Step 16. If you wish to create two additional profiles, return to the game window and continue from Step #1.

Step 17. Once you have completed the creation of each of your profiles associated with the buttons.
You will need to exit and restart the game.

The next time you run the game, the new .XML files associated with the buttons will be loaded.
You will now have your 3 custom profiles available to swtich between at any time you prefer.



Enjoy!
