Description
Version 2.0.1
changed for GU29!

Version 2.0.0
The previous release did not make me nearly as happy as I thought it would. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it refused to save anything. So, I rethought the whole process and came up with this release that I think everyone will like better.

Resizable both vertically and horizontally for full-size! Window resizes and saves the size you choose. No, really, it does this time.

Worst thing about this one is the window might load in the wrong position, but first time you mouse over it, it snaps to the proper settings. It's complicated and has to do with how the eq client loads windows, but it doesn't seem too annoying compared with the previous version.

Version 1.1.0
Happy Frostfell!

Following up on the suggestion posted, the first few letters display can now be shut off. Selecting "Frames only" or "None" is no first few letters. "Frames and Title" is the original display from version 1.0.0

Window is now resizable. Vertical changes appear to save. Horizontal doesn't because the window doesn't execute the "OnHide" commands before saving settings and unless you have your mouse hovering over the maintained window when it saves, it's in compact mode.

Anyone who has any ideas on how to get around that issue, please feel free to post.

I'm interested in comments on the new version!

Version 1.0.0
I love the maintained windows that show all the information, but I find them distracting with the amount of screen they occupy.

This was my attempt to get the best of both worlds. I started with someone else's maintained window. Might have been Profit's or Killarny's - I honestly don't remember. Original author, please feel free to claim your work and I'll make sure to update this!

Anyhow, the window shrinks down to only show the first few letters of the maintained spell and target most of the time. Duration was moved over the spell icon so that more of it would show. If you mouse over any part of the window, it expands to full size, showing all the text you could ever want to see.

Icons are 27x27. Font is Ariel Bold 13pt. If you already have an eq2ui_fonts.xml, just insert this line before the </Namespace> instead of overwriting your fonts file:

<TextStyle Algorithm="Bold" FontName="Arial" Language="english" Name="FontBoldArial13" PointSize="13" UseCachedFont="true" />

Unfortunately, you have to edit the file if you want to change the window size, but I play at 1280x1024 and have no problems with the size included. Anything larger should also work.

Maintained window missing

Same problem here unfortunately. Installed it, loaded up EQ2, pointed my mouse cursor over it and it vanished. Seems to have disappeared off screen because I get a changed of cursor when I mouse over where it used to be, although I can not right-click or get control. Ive deleted the file and re-installed. Each time it comes back but whenever I get near it with my cursor it disappears again.

Even hitting F10 (which darkens all UI windows dosen't reveal that there is a maintained window at all.

I even took all my ui mods out and only put in the maintained and font.xml and still the same issue.

I don't have EoF enabled yet, I'm getting it tomorrow. I don't know if that has any relevance at all.

I hope you can figure this out, I will miss your mod the most out of all the ones I use (I only use like 6)
I'm trying to figure out what could be going wrong for you, but am clueless atm... Keep an eye on your PMs on this site as I will likely contact you there for more information.

Don't take this wrong, but I'd just use another maintained spell mod. There's 2 or 3 that are almost just like mine except that they stay one size. The other authors on this site do good work, I won't be offended if you use one of their contributions

Ok, I have a fix for that...

The eq2ui_fonts.xml file is out of date... Sorry, I never use that file. I make it from scratch when I install the mod. I'll fix the fonts file and get an update. Sorry

I'd prefer yours, as his is somewhat outdated, but outdated > not working.
No icons, no nothin? Because I may have found a problem keeping text from showing, but you should at least see icons.

I installed twice on two different computers successfully.

I don't know what problem you're having - but I downloaded and played with the mod today... I'm in the process of rebuilding my UI since GU29 and thought it'd be a good chance to test even the mods I thought were OK. I just stopped in to mark this mod GU29 certified.
