- Status displays correctly for values up to 9,999,999,999
Don't forget you can use DarqUI in Beta. Use the DarqUI utility to A) get beta versions of DarqUI files and B) copy your Live and Test game settings over. Using DarqUI on the Beta server will not make any changes to your Live or Test installation.
The easiest way to make it work is to drop a copy of the utility into the \EverQuest II\BetaServer\UI\ folder:
When you open the utility from that location, it will detect that it is in Beta. Allow it to install if it's not already there, or check for updates if you have a previous version of DarqUI_v3 in Beta.
There will be a new tab, Beta Tools, that you can use to copy settings from Live or Test to Beta. This is not required -- all settings on this page are completely optional.
Each section has a short Help window.
I will be posting beta files to the server this time, and you will be able to download them directly into your DarqUI Beta installation. When you check for updates from the utility in the BetaServer folder
you will get a server alert pop-up that tells you which files to choose.

DarqUI Unified Utility
version 188.8.131.52 includes the following changes:
DarqUI Unified Notifications
- The majority of utility tasks can be done without connecting to the internet, so you can now choose to connect or disconnect with a simple on/off switch (Settings page). The utility loads more quickly and uses fewer system resources when offline.
- You can now choose a new location for your DarqUI backup folder (Files page)
- If you prefer to use the EQII default for any DarqUI-modified component, the utility can help. Check for updates, then right-click the file and choose "Use game default." This will revert any customized version and automatically "skip" (ignore) the DarqUI component for future downloads.
- Recent intermittent download errors have been substantially mitigated
- Fixed a bug when working with Custom Option Presets on the Experience Bar configuration page
- Fixed a bug when changing Target/Implied Target settings under certain conditions
- First-time setup results are easier to understand
- Additional features for Darq Side members. If you are a patron, check the website for a post/video.
version 184.108.40.206 is included in this download. No changes have been made since publishing in September.
Improvements to DarqUI are happening all year long, not just at expansion release. I encourage you to visit the DarqUI Portal Page
and check out the many feature updates and tutorials that you may not have been aware of.
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, Examine, 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, Gear Buff Macros, Hotbars, Icon Bar and Spell Effects.
Track and search equipment, bags, bank, shared bank, house vault, Wardrobe contents, mount and Familiar collections and up to 9 houses, guild hall and player-made dungeons per character from the DarqUI Unified interface.
Display a summary of interesting broker sales metrics for each character: total receipts, most popular item, biggest spender and more. Use the sales grid to calculate additional data such as average price paid for an item. Parse results for today, current week, past 12 months, etc.
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.
Install and update the official EQ2MAP alongside DarqUI with a single click.
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.
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 notifier also includes a URL Helper
that opens website requests in your default Windows browser instead of the in-game browser. The app is optional, and is included in the download on this page.
