Can you make a visual indicator when the health or power threshold has been met please.
A blue box around the character's name for pwr, green for health
Work with group AND raid window please

Group and Raid windows each have their own health and power monitor, and the background behind the character's name changes color in both cases. Red=health, blue=power and purple=both. Is this not what you are seeing?

Yes you're correct. I've been missing it this whole time because it's too subtle.

By default or by option, please have it flash on and off and be a lot brighter and "in your face".
Especially since this is not an indicator, it's an emergency warning that should pull your attention to it even when not looking.

Can you at least let me know which XML needs to be edited to make the backgrounds completely opaque and bright blue/green please?

Search for Name="CueP" and Name="CueH". There will be one of each for each raid/group member. You can change color and opacity directly on the line. Remember though if you make them opaque you will only see one indicator at a time. Right now they are 50% transparent which is why you get purple when a player has both low power and low health.

Thanks mate, much appreciated.

For anyone else:

eq2ui_mainhud_groupmembers.xml

Change:
<Page BackgroundColor="#0000FF" BackgroundOpacity="0.500" Location="1,1" Name="CueP" ScrollExtent="203,24" Size="203,24" Visible="false" />
<Page BackgroundColor="#FF0000" BackgroundOpacity="0.500" Location="1,1" Name="CueH" ScrollExtent="203,24" Size="203,24" Visible="false" />

To
<Page BackgroundColor="#0000FF" BackgroundOpacity="0.800" Location="1,1" Name="CueP" ScrollExtent="203,24" Size="203,24" Visible="false" />
<Page BackgroundColor="#FF0000" BackgroundOpacity="0.800" Location="1,1" Name="CueH" ScrollExtent="203,24" Size="203,24" Visible="false" />

So there's still a little transparency for when they overlap.

Now if only EQ2 would do CSS blink

You can make it flash by adding OnShowEffector="Flashing" to each of those lines, and add the following line somewhere in the file:

<EffectorCycleOpacity Background="true" InitialOpacity="1.000" Name="Flashing" Speed="2.000" />
