Default Howto: Install an Interface

Currently the interface command /loadui works in a sense it loads the custom interface but if you use it your interface will not work correctly. So here are the steps to use for now to load a custom interface and have it work.

Current Install Steps:
  1. Download the interface you wish to use
  2. Make a new folder with any name BUT with no spaces or special charaters (example: bobsui) in the UI folder that is inside your Everquest II directory.
  3. Unzip the xml, dds, tga (dds,tga's must be in a images sub-folder) files into your newely created folder. Please make sure you dont have a folder inside of a folder when you do this. %\Everquest II\UI\bobsui\jillsui\*.xml (wrong) | %\Everquest II\UI\bobsui\*.xml (correct)
  4. If you are going to use multiple interface peices just unzip all of them into the same folder.
  5. Go back to your Everquest II directory and create a new text file and put the following code inside of it:
    Code:
    cl_ui_skinname bobsui
    cl_ui_subdir UI/
  6. Save the file as eq2.ini (make sure you dont save it as eq2.txt or eq2.ini.txt)
  7. Load up Everquest II and your new interface should be working.
Once they fix the /loadui command using custom interfaces will be ALOT easier and these steps will be updated.

NOTE: some authors include the EQ2.INI file for you. If its there, just save it into your EQ2 directory.

Some people have had success with reversing the order of the lines
Code:
cl_ui_subdir UI/
cl_ui_skinname bobsui
We recommend trying this IF the above method does not seem to want to work.

Thanks to Jethal for discovering this!

Problems saving or nameing the eq2.ini?

You should be able to open it in notepad and choose save as and save the file as eq2.ini otherwise you can...

Open My Computer >> Tools (dropdown) >> Folder Options >> View (tab) >> uncheck "Hide extentions for known file types". Click Apply and Ok.

Then you should be able to rename the file to eq2.ini.

International users if you have a folder in your Everquest2 directory named something like this (different name depending on language): LP_REGION_EN_US you will need to use the UI folder located inside that.

example:

You would then make your custom UI folder in this location:
%\Everquest II\LP_REGION_EN_US\UI\bobsui

Please see the FAQ for more detailed information.
