Description
Simply put, this is a ported version of my raid window. For general information, please look there as well.
http://www.eq2interface.com/download...llPriests.html
It has the same class switching, macro system, look and functionality.

Now for the differences:
This UI mod is a player window and group window that when docked, looks similar to a single frame of my raid window. Due to some limitations, it could not all be one window. Technically all three are stand-alone mods as they are configured separately and will not break if installed alone. The player a group windows cannot display arch-type icons like the raid window can, as that information isn't available. Instead the player window uses that space to show concentration slots and the group window shows the F-key that space is mapped to. The group window will show pet health bars similarly to how the default UI will, between the health and power bar.

Resizing:
Both windows are freely resizable unlike the raid window. They can scale from 1x to 3x the size of a single raid window frame. UI fonts cannot freely resize, but the UI mod will flip between EQ2 fonts from 14pt(1.0x) to 24pt(1.6x). Fonts above that size don't exist in the default UI, so it remains 24pt up to 3.0x scaling.

It's not very easy to resize a window freely and keep the proportions correct, so the group window when in Frame and Titlebar mode(right-click -> Window Settings) will show an aspect ratio overlay. Keep the two numbers of the ratio the same and you should keep the window properly resized. The player window when toggled to Frame and Titlebar mode and back to Frame will reposition and resize itself to appear docked to the group window. I suggest that you lock both windows and use the F10 mode to resize them. That way the resize handles won't get in the way of the buttons during normal play.

Limitations:
Like the raid window, due to an odd EQ2 bug, the first time you click a button on each UI mod the spell will cast but any chat macro will not. If you click a different button before the chat macro one, it will work correctly. IE, if every time you start the game you click a non-chat button first all other buttons on that window will work correctly from then on. So if you have chat macros on all of your curse cures, you may have to click a heal on each of the three windows for everything to work 100%.

As previously mentioned, resizing of fonts doesn't do anything past 1.6x. Due to how the font switching works to begin with, the larger fonts may not update their coloring properly for zoned out or leader marked players. Moving the mouse over the window will update the coloring for the larger fonts. The player window does not have this coloring limitation.

mainhud_player file keeps getting overwritten

So i've gotten the group portion of the UI to work but for some reason whenever I boot up the game, the patcher replaces the new mainhud_player file from this with the standard one so I can't get my player window updated to the new version

Even more confusing is that I box toons on the same computer and my 2nd account has it working fine. The difference is that my 2nd account is pulling files (seemingly) from the profitui folder and the toon that i can't get it to work properly on is pulling from the defaultui folder.

Re: Group Window

I have problem with the names disappearing on occasion when I make the group window as small as it can go. I can get them back by re-sizing it up a little then back to the size I want it - but its a bit of a pain to do this all the time.

Regarding Health and pow - maybe show a %age figure along with the bars ?

Also I find it quite disorientating not to have the class icons for the player classes displayed in the group window - would be nice to put this in so I know who to buff with my buffs etc .

Overall...... I would say it is a very nice group window, I have been looking for something like this to go with my Fetish UI for some time. I never really liked the fetish group windows as they were too big and clunky for me and not very practical with positioning as a result of that.

I'm using the generic spell names, so it would be the same in the group and raid window. Specifically this would be a bug in EQ2 as SoE sets the order in which spells are picked if given a name.

The only way around this is to outlevel the spell and hope 3 supersedes 1 or find out the spell number of 2 and enter it into line 26(Mystic3) of the XML file until you outlevel it.

Name above health above buttons in a triple stack is an excellent idea. Either that or space out and enlarge the cure/heal buttons and/or reduce the horizontal space alotted for name/health. Or possible a 2.5 stack with the name a half row below the health bar and a half row above the cure/heal buttons.

I'm just thinking of a way for people who keep their groups windows against the side of the screen with a vertical grioup window rather than at the top or the bottom of the screen in the current horizontal fashion. I have a feeling I'm not the only one who is used to a vertical group window layout. Anyway I just thought vertical would be a useful variation to have for this particular mod.

What resize level are you using? The smallest one is the one the game directly changes and the others change when the first changes(by script). I haven't seen any indication that the script might not trigger sometimes.
