Description
I like the idea of having my pet pull for me. I can use my pet to pull mob within range of
my spells, then tell pet to start tanking mob while I nuke, etc.

What my mod does is, adds a button that you can press that will reactivate the
pet's built in protection for itself and you as the master after you tell the
pet to back off and let the mob follow it back to your range. Press this button,
and the pet not only re-engages the mob, but it turns BACK on all it's
protection features.

Also featured two checkboxes in the pet name window area:
Left Checkbox: Toggle Normal Pet Commands / "Fluff" Pet Commands
Right Checkbox: Toggle Auto Hide of Commands
Pet window is LU15 compatible and allows to set opacities in the game.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--Known issues:
You CAN NOT DRAG and DROP this new button to a HOTBAR window. It is NOT an ICON, it is a BUTTON
and dragging to hotbar will result with nada. Therefore, the button MUST be used directly from
the PET Command bank WITHIN the pet window itself.

--Work around:
You can create a simple macro if you wish to have HOTBAR control in the same manner as the
pet window feature I am providing with this mod. The macro is as follows:

: ; pet backoff ; pet preserve_master ; pet preserve_self ; pet attack

Thanks to danedori for this macro BTW

--ADDED:
dn_widgets.dds file to prevent confliction with other files that have
been modded using default file names as their name.

You can now change frame/background opacities in game.

--FIXED:
New image file are included!

--SPECIAL THANKS:
My personal thank you goes out to Jaxel. I used his gauge/overlays for this
mod.

Also, Thanks to Steppin for pointing out the checkbox error due to another modder altering the widgets.dds and not renaming to a custom name. My widgets.dds was calling for the default file, and if you were using a modded widgets.dds of the SAME NAME, your checkbox would appear WHITE.

And one final Thank you goes out to Timb for his idea of "Fluff" commands only.

--Installation:
Simply place the .xml into your /custommod directory
Place dn_widgets.dds, dn_bg1.dds AND the window_elements_dn.dds, into your /custommod/images dirtectory. (If you are using ANY of my other mods,
these files ares OK to overwrite, as I use these in ALL of my mods)
Finally, restart EQ2 and enjoy

Comments and suggestions always welcomed!!

The only problem I have with this mod is the position doesn't save when exiting nor does the state of the button view. Otherwise its a good mod.

If the file is not there, you WILL get a white background!!!!!

====================================================
I verified that this file is where it should be, however, when I look in the ui.log, this is the message that is there:

Couldn't load eq2ui_listboxrow_template2.xml

What does this mean if anything?

Amik you should read the FAQ on how to install mods before making negative comments like above. When the author referenced the Custommod directory it isnt literal, it is generic for where ever you have your custom ui files installed to. If you do not understand how to install a mod or what it does, or encounter any kind of problem please ask politely do not treat someone who is trying to help others by sharing their work so rudely.

To others reading these comments, this is a great mod and the best one I've seen yet for the pet window. There is a reason this mod is rated 5 stars, Depechenode did excellent work on this.

Minor Issue

Great mod, making Conjurors even more fun!

One minor issue I have is I like to have the right checkbox depressed showing all the buttons all the time. Everytime I re-log on I have to:
a) Re-press the checkbox button, and
b) Unlock, reposition the pet window and re-lock the window.

Is there anyway that I can make the depressed checkbox the default state and get the pet window to always be where I left it?

Odd, I have not had this problem you are describing. I use my own mod for over 14 hours per session and never had the button permanently stay depressed?

A Positive Exp. -- One Suggestion

WOW! I absolutely LOVE this mod!!!! My only wish is that it were bigger. I'm not good at messing with these kinds of things so I greatly appreciate the work that you've done.

Version 2.0b includes a missing file that is is needed. Please redownload this mod if you were having background issues.

Follow the instructions in the desc above or that are included in the text file within the zip.

Thank you for your patience!!!
