Death window with added button
 
Description
Being a child of the Windows generation, putting a dialog box with only one button in front of me was always a bad idea. I tend to click the only button there is without actually registering anything in my brain.

But, if there's two buttons, something pauses my finger long enough to read and decide which to hit. There was born Mother's A.D.D. Death window. With a handy Wait button to hang out and wait for someone to rez you.

And of course, implementing Blackguard's joke about the non-existant death penalties in EQ2, the you have died prompt was replaced with the words "Don't Panic" in large friendly letters.

Version 1.0.1
Should be GU29 compliant. I'm afraid I didn't find a way to die tinkering to test it, but the change looked pretty straightforward.

for some reason, the window with the list of revive points is very tall... it spans beyond the bottom of the two buttons... luckily, the buttons are still clickable... i'll try to get a screenshot for you later, when i get back to my computer.

EDIT: it's a size issue. the default window size makes it stretch. "resizing" the death window to as short as it can go fixes the issue.

Well, I didn't need a lowbie character to test this one out.

This mod doesn't seem like much but it's a huge surprise. The ability to move the window out of the way alone is worth it.

Thank you so much. Now I can see the action while waiting for a rez and I don't have to worry so much about accidentally hitting the revive button.

2 thumbs way up.

thank you! thank you!

and yeah, i took at look at the map spoiler and have been meaning to try it out... seems like a lot of work's been put into that. i think i'll wait for the bugs to get resolved and a full update to be released first, though... unless u want more ppl testing

I can't read "Don't Panic" without thinking that there is a picture of that green fellow missing.

And if you change your mind, you just click on the words "Don't panic" to restore the full death window.
haha that is great!! i downloaded it, but haven't had the chance to try it yet... been at work all afternoon, and i just now got back from college. i'm sure i'm gonna love this, especially since i'm a bit HHGTTG fan
