Description
Here is my version of the Heroic Opportunity window.
TOP Left pic is Microsized Vertical
TOP Right pic is NORMAL sized Verical
BOTTOM Left pic is NORMAL sized horizontal
BOTTOM Right pic is LARGE sized horizontal

Basically I took Azoz's "Micro HO window" and changed it to my likings.
Made the icons a bit bigger, on 1600x1200 they were way too Micro.
Added multi color timer bar.
Reduced wasted space.

DISCLAIMER:
The screen shots are from actual in game on 21.1 LCD Viewsonic monitor at 1600x1200. So to see the "REAL" size you MUST view in 1600x1200 mode. Otherwise, your sizes may look smaller/larger depending on your settings.

What is UPDATED:
Included within this archive are 4 sets of Heroic Opportunity windows.
2 are horizontal small and regular sized.
2 are vertical small and regular sized.

To use the window of YOUR choice, simply extract the .xml you desire
to YOUR /custommod directory.
Then RENAME MY .xml to eq2ui_mainhud_heroic.xml
Now restart EQ2 and you should have the heroic window of your choice.

For example:
Say I want the Small Vertical version.
1) I open up the .zip and click ONLY on the eq2ui_mainhud_heroicvertsmall.xml
2) Extract that HIGHLIGHTED file to c:\EQ2\UI\MYMODS
3) Open THAT folder you extracted to and look for eq2ui_mainhud_heroicvertsmall.xml
4) RIGHT CLICK on the file and RENAME it to eq2ui_mainhud_heroic
(the .xml is already in place you DO NOT need to add that!)
5) Restart EQ2
6) Enjoy

If for some reason you do not like the size and/or position vert vs/ hor. then Repeat
the process above but choose a different .xml from the archive.

Thanks to everyone for using this mod.

CREDIT to Azoz for his original Micro HO window that I used to make my versions.

Comments and questions/suggestions ALWAYS welcome.

Thanks a lot. : )
yes its very easy, depechenode just has to change the order of the circles so that it goes 1-6-5-4-3-2 in order to get it to show up right, however you can use this HO window that i just uploaded until he fixes his if having it in the incorrect order bothers you that much.

if you used having the title showing or not decide wether it was vertical or horizontal then it would be possible to save what layout it was in, however i haven't done anything like that before so i cant give you the exact code but i know that it should be possible.

Keep up the good work.

All you need to do is right click and darken down the opacity of the background. Then you will be gtg.

I don't think this can be done. I think the Icons are hard coded. Maybe, if the grahpic file were altered to show TEXT rather than a pic, then it could be done. However, the text would need to be very small to fit into a 30x30 icon slot. Probably not feasible.

Basically tho, Blue = Warrior, Green = Scout, Yellow = Priest and Red = Mage. The actual pic you see when you see these doesn't really matter, just try to learn the 4 colors and you will be gtg. BTW, Green Coin = Scout as they are the only class that can "shift" an HO into something else.
