The Milquetowst All-Digital Experience Bar
 
Description
I've had some fun with the experience window. I've replaced the default-style bars with a purely digital display that shows *all* experience data at once. The first section of the display shows your adventuring level, progress, debt and vitality. The second section shows your AP points and progress. The third section shows your tradeskilling level, progress and vitality. The fourth section shows your guild level and progress.

(If you're unguilded, shrinking the display to its minimum length will hide the guild info display.)

-- Darryl

KNOWN ISSUE: I have "smooth fonts" turned on, but do *not* use "small sans serif fonts." (If you've never adjusted your font settings, that's how your game is set up, too.) If you have things set differently, the digital experience displays may suffer.

========================================

"RECENT" VERSION HISTORY:

071228 - UPDATE - Finally modified the bar to correctly display three-digit AP totals. (But no, I didn't bother to update the screen shot.)

070425 - UPDATE - Restored true "tenths of percent" displays, now that the proper info is finally available!

========================================

Please post any comments, suggestions or questions on the appropriate forum thread, and not here. That way, I'll know as soon as I visit that new comments exist. Thanks!

No, you don't actually need 101% experience to ding.

There are a number of threads here (and elsewhere) complaining about how Sony "broke" the experience display. This so-called "bug" appeared several Live Updates ago. It really isn't a bug, though; the "problem" is simply that the whole-number exp display sent from the server is now being rounded, where it wasn't before.

Previously, for example, it displayed 55% if your actual experience total was between 55.0% and 55.9%; 56% if it was between 56.0% and 56.9%, etc. Now, instead, the number is rounded. It will display 55% if your actual experience total is between 54.5% and 55.4%, 56% if it's between 55.5% and 56.4%, etc.

So, when your experience total hits 99.5%, the whole-number display gets rounded to 100%, even though you're not actually quite ready to level.

As anyone with any mathematical savvy will undoubtedly agree, the change was a fix. After all, if you've got 55.9% experience, a whole-number display of your experience *SHOULD* be rounded to show 56% rather than 55%.

However, while "officially," the whole-number experience display is only utilized in the tooltip when you mouseover the experience bar, a lot of exp bar mods utilized the unrounded number in the construction of decimal exp displays. The change broke those mods. For example, if you've got 55.9% experience, those mods will now show 56.9%. Hence all the whining about the "bug" that Sony introduced.

If you're using an older version of my exp bar, you're seeing the same problem, by the way. However, I did update it a while back to accomodate the change.

It doesn't display the tooltips because you have set AbsorbsInput="false".
It's always the silly little things that get missed, isn't it?

Tooltip fix

Quote:
(1) Tooltips aren't cooperating with me. The vitality and debt tooltips show up just fine on the digital displays, but the actual experience tooltips, including the AP tooltip that identifies the sources of your AP experience, don't. It's not that big a deal; after all, if you want to see where you've gotten your AP experience, you can just hit "L" and check the display in the skills window. But it's still annoying.
It doesn't display the tooltips because you have set AbsorbsInput="false" . Once you remove that the mouseover will cause an event, displaying the tooltip.
