Description
DarqUI Unified


March 20, 2017: DarqUI Unified v3.1.0.8


Maintained Spell Monitor
There are some new display modes to choose from (see image below). Fixed tile and fixed icon-only modes display spells in the specific order listed in the setup grid. You can also choose stacking tile or stacking icon-only mode which will display monitored spells only when they appear. Choose normal or large size version on the updater.
Because icon-only modes are included in the new version, compact horizontal choices have been retired on the updater. Also, EU clients appear to have full use of all EN-US features due to changes in number formatting. Thurgadin players please let me know if this is not the case.
Hotkey Sets
Save and load hotkeys for each character without macros or typing
Organize hotkey sets by purpose: AA spec, Ascension class, tradeskills, etc.
DarqUI Icon Bar
A new hotbar-styled window with 24 configurable icon slots
Offload seldom-used spells to the Icon Bar to free up limited hotkeys
Use the DarqUI Utility to transfer your character's hotkeys with just a click
Look up any spell and its icon by name from the Daybreak census server
Virtually any spell, ability, clicky item or macro can be assigned to a slot
Build fully customized commands with icons using the utility or in-game

Many thanks to Accredo for ideas, observations and testing of these features
Wardrobe
Your character's Wardrobe listing has been added to the EQ2Inventory page
Wardrobe is searchable, offers EQ2U and in-game links, and is included in reporting
Font Styles
Two new font styles, Franklin Gothic and Trebuchet, are available on the updater
Update the font style of the entire UI with the selection of a single file
View samples of the new styles

Thanks to Dabb for the idea
Also
Group/Raid census lookup will now search for Ascension spells
Empty stat slots in the StatMon grid are easier to deal with (utility)
Fixed a display issue when canceling the import of another character's bag profile (utility)












__________________________________________________



DarqUI Unified combines the best of DarqUI, DarqUI Live and EQ2Inventory into one, with some useful new features. Standard DarqUI users can now choose to make quick, permanent configuration changes right from the game screen while playing, as an alternative to loading up the external window utility. There is no longer a limit to the number of characters that can be customized, and many of the settings that were previously shared by all of your characters can now be configured for each character separately.

DarqUI Live users can take advantage of an all-new configuration app with features like Quick Setup, backup and restore, character and spell file maintenance, and a new lookup feature that queries Daybreak servers for spell lines and icons to use for your spell buttons. The DarqUI Unified configuration app has been rewritten from the ground up to provide all of the conveniences from the DarqUI Window Utility and the Live Updater. You will find many usability improvements and an uncluttered design that matches the familiar in-game window manager.

Large size windows DarqUI Unified offers larger-size versions of many windows to accommodate higher resolution monitors. Choose the size you prefer from the Updates page of the utility. These include Active Journal (quest helper), Casting Bar, Chat, Dissonance, Experience Bar, Group, Implied Target, Maintained Spell Monitor, Maintained Spells, Mercenary, NPC Spell Monitor, Pet, Player, Raid, Savagery, Target, Threat and Tracking. DarqUI windows that were already usable with higher resolutions include Detrimental Effects, Hotbars and Spell Effects.

EQ2Inventory Track and search equipment, bags, bank, shared bank, house vault, mount inventory and up to 9 houses, guild hall and player-made dungeons per character from the DarqUI Unified interface.

Chat Log Parser features keyword, category and date/time searches that recognize English, German and French log files. Use the preset category filters or build your own using regular expressions.

EQ2MAP integration Install and update EQ2MAP alongside DarqUI with a single click.

Help system Help files are now available for all DarqUI Unified windows and utility functions. Context-sensitive help information can be accessed externally from the window utility or from the window manager in-game. Use the new, more robust "Make default" feature on the Files page of the utility to set DarqUI as your default. This will prevent needing to use /loadui from the game window which crashes the awesomium browser.

Spell Suggestions There is a new French spell suggestion file in addition to German and English.

DarqUI Unified Notifications is a Windows tray icon that checks periodically for DarqUI and EQ2MAP updates. More information for setting up and using DarqUI_Notify can be found here. The app is optional, and is included in the download on this page.

If you have character settings that you want to use again, you should be okay to get your updates with the newest version of the utility. Assuming you don't care about the old settings, the easiest way to start over is to delete the DarqUI_v3 folder and then run the new utility. It will offer to do the entire setup automatically including configuring your characters and installing EQ2MAP.

The slot types you mentioned appear similar to bags and hotbars, but internally they are simply square frames, and do not have a mechanism to change size and padding as a unit. The Guild bank is wrapped with a scrolling window, so it would be a more likely candidate to do something with since the whole window would not have to be rebuilt.

The Bank window would be more troublesome to build slots that resize, but there is no reason why it could not have normal and large versions. I'll look at both of these.

Thank you for your quick response - I did see someone else having trouble with the UI not loading or loading very slowly (10 minutes!) on the Support forums at the official site. People are complaining of very bad lag as well, so I'm not so sure about it having anything to do with your wonderful UI. We'll see - I'll take your suggestions and keep an eye on the official forums as well.

Update: I took the opportunity to completely uninstall and do a clean install of the game. I then installed the DarqUI. I got into the game just fine, no download problem, nada. Thanks again for all you do!

Is also possible to increase the number of spells, which are monitored?

Thanks halldor

Thanks for your comments, halldor. You can size the maintmon window down to just the icons to gain some more screen space -- all features are still available without the text area. There is also an icon-only horizontal version on the updater.

Zidu has done some very nice work on the DrumsUI spell timer, with two different versions. You should be able to use one of them alongside DarqUI with no problems. If you don't mind using Notepad to add spell names manually, the short version is very lightweight and functional. If you want the ability to change the spells around from the game window, the full standalone version is better.

Zidu's short version, manual edit

Full version with editing window

They are experimental for now.

I'll see if there is a way to get them out of Census by name. Thanks for pointing this out.
