Description
Makes the original EQII button visible and working again.

Unzip file and drop into your Custom UI folder - DO NOT put into the Default UI folder, it will not work and will be replaced at your next log in. Refer to the FAQ if you are unsure how to use/install a custom UI.

Please note the "start menu" will still open where your XP bar is, and not next to the EQII button as it used to.

So the old pre-GU57 button is working. If you're missing it, I added it to my pre-GU57 UI .
I updated this file on 9/17. It is working as it should be.

I noticed this problem myself last night, though I thought maybe I'd messed something up while I was modding a few other things. I'll check into this tonight/tomorrow and see if I can find the problem and hopefully fix it.

I've had this installed since it came out and it worked fine until today. Now I click it and nothing happens. I haven't made any changes to my UI, I'm guessing SOE did something to mess it up?

so, hum, it seems not to be working anymore for me. Is it a random problem or are others affected?

I have the button showing, but no menu opens when I click it anymore

The start menu never did close by clicking the EQII button a second time, but the value allowcloseontop="true" makes it close when another area/window of the screen/ui is clicked. The button showed up where it did because of the location that it was saved to in the ui builder. Anyone downloading this will need to reset the location, just like any other new UI piece.

Glad to hear it works for you now.

I got it to show up doing that though I didn't add PackLocation="center,top" PackLocationProp="-116/0001,0096/0001" to the line.

The button showed up above my chat window though I did need to raise it up a little. Clicking it opened the window, but clicking it again didn't close the window. Not sure if it is supposed to or remember if it ever did. Clicking anywhere else on screen will close the window, so it works good enough for me.

Thanks for the help.

The clock file included in the download is what forces the startbutton window to show on your screen when you log in, without it the window will still "hide".

The file you will need to edit to make the startbutton window show on login is called eq2ui_mainhud.xml. This tells the game that you are using a custom window when you boot up the game. As before - right click and choose edit on the file named eq2ui_mainhud and add the following line above the </Page> part:
Code:
<include>eq2ui_mainhud_startbutton.xml</include>
Since you are already using a custom clock then you have two options; either replace your existing file with the one included, or edit your existing clock file with the following steps:

1) open your custom ui folder and find the file named eq2ui_clock.xml, right click that file and choose "edit"
3) Use the "find" ability in Notepad and type in: Name="Clock"
4) Once it locates that line add a space and then add this code:
Code:
OnShow="show_window=(MainHUD.StartButton) show_window=(MainHUD.StartButton)"
The second line in this file should look very much like this once you finish (unless there are other things added in):

Code:
<Page allowcloseontop="false" eq2usescomwndcontrols="true" Location="524,96" Name="Clock" OnShow="show_window=(MainHUD.StartButton) show_window=(MainHUD.StartButton)" PackLocation="center,top" PackLocationProp="-116/0001,0096/0001" ScrollExtent="216,38" Size="216,38" UserMovable="true">
I will not be able to check back here for a week, so I won't be able to offer support for this until next friday (3rd). If you are still unable to get this to work or are unsure how to do the above, you're welcome to post a copy of the clock file you are using now and I can edit it for you and repost for you to copy/download.

EDIT - It just occurred to me - also make sure that you are copying the files out of the unzipped folder and not dropping the entire unzipped folder into your custom UI folder.

You are right. I am using a mix of things I like. Which EQ2UI_Mainhud file are you referring to? I did try to add it to my EQ2.ini file but that did not help.

One other thing. Is the clock file needed for it? I have a clock file already so I didn't add it to my folder.

I also seem to remember for one mod having to type in a command in game to get the window to show up. Not sure what it was though.

My best guess would be that you are using just bits and pieces of other mods rather than a full custom ui? If so you'll need to add a line to your EQ2UI_Mainhud file in your custom ui folder:

Code:
<include>eq2ui_mainhud_startbutton.xml</include>

Where did it go?

OK, I dropped this into my mod folder with the rest of my mods and have not been able to find it yet in game.

Ideas?
