Description
[font=Comic Sans MS]This little gem wouldn't have been possible without Deathbane and Magus. Thanks guys!

This is an altered shutdown window that allows you to switch characters without zoning out to the character select screen.


- Cuts character switching time in half
- One version fits all! - window is resizable to accomidate anywhere from 2 to 12 characters!


Release History
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
v2.2b
Corrected a syntax issue in the code.
I have tested this version and can confirm that it does work.

v2.2
Changed the setup procedure back to the original method.
Should once again be able to work with characters on different servers (even if they have the same name.)
NOTE: I made these changes while at work and had no way of testing it. Please let me know if there are any problems. Thanks!

v2.1
Now compatible with LU28
NOTE: The setup process has changed slightly with this new version. Please reread the instructions below. Thanks!
ALSO: I was not able to test switching to a character on a different server. Let me know if there are any problems

v2.0
Reskinned in the LU16 style

v1.2b
Corrected an issue that caused character buttons to not be clickable.

v1.2
Made window resizable to show anywhere from 2 to 12 character buttons.
Made a slight change to button title layout (not in screenshot yet). Looks cleaner.

v1.0
Original release
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Be sure to open the xml file in a text editor and change all the following lines of code that contain the words "Character" and "Server" to use your characters' name and server instead.

Example:
This line...
Code:
<Button LocalText="Character" LocalTooltip="Server" Location="3,4" Name="Preset_Button_1" ...
would become this line:
Code:
<Button LocalText="Mahonri" LocalTooltip="Kithicor" Location="3,4" Name="Preset_Button_1" ...
Do this for each of your characters (one per line). Leave any extra lines as they are. Extra buttons can be hidden by resizing the window!

Great UI piece

I love this UI piece. I can confirm that it switches between servers correctly as well.

Great work Mahonri.

I used to use the old one pre LU#28 and really enjoy having this mod I have downloaded the new updated version of this and get the following message when trying to switch characters :

Could not find server 1 1 1 1 Antonia Bayle Antonia Bayle Antonia Bayle followed by my character name repeated 3 times.

This is all in a in game window with the option to click OK, which shuts down EQ2.

I thought that this information may help you pinpoint the problem. Thank you again for a wonderful mod.

I just tried it a couple of minutes ago and crashed. Using Fetish Nightfall so dont know if there is any problem there (cant think why but you never know).

Previous version didnt work but at least went back to character select screen.

Also, you state in your notes to look below for updated installation instructions. All I could find is your note about putting in your toon's name and server into the XML file.

Please help!

Thanks.
I posted another update yesterday morning. If you downloaded before then, please redownload and try this one. I was going to test it on my system when I got home, but my new motherboard was waiting for me and when I installed it, Windows wouldn't boot. Had to reinstall everything... Still need to reinstall and update EQ2, so I should be back up and running in about 5 hours .

It looks like something changed on Sony's end. Many of these types of mods are acting up.

Now that I am returning (reactivated my account yesterday) I will be making this piece my first priority followed by my XP bar.

This mod is awesome and works flawlessly. I much prefer the switch to characters at the UI lvl versus zoning into a login server.

Talking sweet!

i was just thinking today how nice it would be if this mod were skinned with the new blue style. : )

i've noticed the same problem mentioned a couple of posts down, but it seems sporadic. sometimes it happens. sometimes it doesn't. *shrug* in my experience, it doesn't happen often.

even though we now have the "/camp Charactername", i'm so used to having this mod that i'm still using it. perhaps if you simplify it by using the new command, the problem will disappear. i still prefer your mod, as it saves me from having macros with the /camp command set up on a hotbar, all of which are already taken on all my characters. yeah, i'm an emote whore. (^_^)

cheers, M. =D

Well, I've checked it out in-game and it is still working fine for me. All I can think to do is make sure that everything, especially the server name, is spelled correctly. I know a few server names are strange because of spaces in the name, but I don't know their correct syntax. If that isn't the problem, try placing eq2_mainhud_shutdown.xml into its own ui directory and see if it works without any other mods. Anything else is a mystery to me...
