DarqUI Unified Update Notes
February 25, 2017: DarqUI Unified v184.108.40.206
DarqUI and the new utility include the following changes:
• Character profile viewer/editor
+ Import another character's layout and settings for bags, banks, chat windows or hotbars without disturbing other UI settings• Remove or reinstall EQ2MAP to repair a bad installation
+ Duplicate sizes and settings for all hotbars at once
+ List and organize voice and chat channels, remove "ghost" chat windows
+ Align hotbars, inventory, bank, shared bank or house vault containers in a compact grid automatically
• Configuration pages added for Stat Monitor, Dissonance and Enemy List
• Added controls to resize Target and Implied Target effect icons
• Added an option to center cooldown timers on hotbar icons
February 24 Target and Implied Target effect icons can be resized.
The Beastlord window was simplified and no longer needs a configuration page in the window manager.
February 15 Settings pages and help files were added to the Window Manager for Enemy List and Dissonance.
February 14 Fixed some display issues with the Community (friends list) Temporary Ignore feature
February 9 Mission list filter added to quest journal to match default UI changes
February 6 Added a helper for large price increments to the DarqUI SetPrice window. This allows setting item prices greater than one million plat on the Broker. The idea was lifted from Silat's Broker Prices for ProfitUI
January 30 Combined WDB and SWDB for XP Bar, Character window, Stat Monitor and Window Manager
January 21 DarqUI Stat Monitor
The new DarqUI Stat Monitor displays up to five stats such as Potency, Fervor, Spell Doublecast, etc. in a large-format, flexible tiled window. Each stat can be configured with a logical setpoint that warns when the value reaches a specified threshold. Warning setpoints can be useful for timing certain abilities that depend upon temporarily high stat values from procs, or for tracking changes to other combat stats such as Threat or Haste.
Use the DarqUI Unified Utility to get the new files. There are normal and large size versions of the monitor. An in-game help file has more information if you need help setting it up.
Thanks to Dabb for the idea.
Jan 26: Added audible setpoint warnings
January 17 DarqUI Unified v220.127.116.11
DarqUI and the new utility include the following changes:
- Full-screen windowed mode A feature adaptation of the popular Make Window Fullscreen utility by aerlyn_venekor. Using this option (Settings page of the utility), the game window will cover the entire screen even though it is technically in windowed mode. This allows you to [Alt+Tab] to other applications or mouse over to a secondary monitor without the graphical issues that come with switching between full-screen and windowed modes. The game window expands automatically when a character logs in. To return to standard windowed mode, press [Alt+Enter] twice.
- Added small Mercenary window version
- Open Harvesting Helper from the Start menu
- Exit-to-desktop feature added to Shutdown page
- Ability Doublecast added to XP Bar stats page
- Additional diagnostics when Census server is down
- Fixed a display issue with the DarqUI_Notify app on high-DPI monitors

- Hotbars DarqUI cooldown timers can be configured for center or lower-left placement on the icons. A new blue gem control on the right-side grab bar, when visible, opens the window manager to the hotbar configuration page.

Oct 22: Kunark Ascending Beta
To use DarqUI on the Beta server, place a copy of the DarqUI Unified Utility into your \BetaServer\UI\ folder and run the installation from there. The utility will create a separate installation that will not interfere with your live server UI. If you want to copy your DarqUI customizations over to the Beta server, try the newest version of the utility which has some new tools for Beta participants.
DarqUI Unified Utility v18.104.22.168
To ease the transition to Beta for copied characters, version 22.214.171.124 of the utility features a new Beta Tools page. If you are running the utility from the BetaServer\UI\ folder, the Beta Tools tab will be visible on the sidebar. You can use this page to port the following items to Beta:
- DarqUI customizations
- Character UI settings files (hotbar and window locations, bag sizes, chat tabs)
- Custom keyboard layouts
- Custom option files (preferences and video settings)
Included with this download, DarqUI Unified Notifications v126.96.36.199 optionally offers a helpful tip about DarqUI each time the notifier checks for updates. For help with installing or upgrading DarqUI_Notify, click here.
Use +/- toggle on the frame to switch between one-line and two-line enemy list display
Changed current target slot on Threat List to match default updates
You can toggle the new Threat List window by clicking on the crossed swords area of the main Threat window
Added current target to new Threat List window
The Pet call and shrink buttons should no longer get confused about whether you have a construct, a warder or a servant. Thanks to Accredo for help with testing.
The Maintained Spell Monitor has been updated to show comma separators for "Amount" values (upper right-hand corner of the icon). The window will show values up to 99,999,999. Please report any problems you may have with the display. This is for live and beta servers. Thanks to jeffjl for help with testing.
The Default UI on the Beta server includes a new "threat list" window which has some experimental modifications on the DarqUI update server. The files can be downloaded on live servers but will only be operational on the Beta server at this time. Use the command /togglethreatlistwindow to show the window.
An update to the DarqUI Character (Persona) window is available with features that are specific to the Beta server. If you are not beta testing, you can safely avoid replacing the Character window until the Kunark Ascending expansion goes live.
Other files updated for Beta:
Experience bar (Ascension)

July 17, 2016: Broker preset filters
You can now search the Broker for items by category using preset filters. Item filter lists were lifted from ProfitUI Market Favorites (most recently Zidu's work). Click "Presets" on the DarqUI Broker window to use the filters. Thanks to Accredo for help with ideas and testing.
July 6, 2016: Added Isle of Refuge and Race To Trakanon servers to window manager.
June 12, 2016: Harvesting helper
The DarqUI harvesting helper window eliminates repetitive mouse clicks and keystrokes during long harvesting sessions. Start the helper window and simply approach a harvestable tradeskill node. The helper will target (target_nearest_npc) and harvest from the resource. As you move from node to node the helper will continuously attempt to harvest, making it unnecessary to click harvesting ability macros or repeatedly double-click the node.
Open the window from the Harvesting page of the XP bar, or type:
