The overall look of the utility and the UI itself are not going to be appreciably different since version 3.1. Go to the "About" page of the utility and make sure it says you are using v3.1.0.8. The Window Manager in-game should say version 3.040 at the top.

It will offer to do the entire setup automatically including configuring your characters and installing EQ2MAP.

The slot types you mentioned appear similar to bags and hotbars, but internally they are simply square frames, and do not have a mechanism to change size and padding as a unit. The Guild bank is wrapped with a scrolling window, so it would be a more likely candidate to do something with since the whole window would not have to be rebuilt.

The Bank window would be more troublesome to build slots that resize, but there is no reason why it could not have normal and large versions. I'll look at both of these.

Thank you for your quick response - I did see someone else having trouble with the UI not loading or loading very slowly (10 minutes!) on the Support forums at the official site. People are complaining of very bad lag as well, so I'm not so sure about it having anything to do with your wonderful UI. We'll see - I'll take your suggestions and keep an eye on the official forums as well.

Update: I took the opportunity to completely uninstall and do a clean install of the game. I then installed the DarqUI. I got into the game just fine, no download problem, nada. Thanks again for all you do!

Now the game won't load the UI and freezes, even wedging my computer so that I had to do a hard reboot.

Help please!

Is also possible to increase the number of spells, which are monitored?

Thanks halldor

Thanks for your comments, halldor. You can size the maintmon window down to just the icons to gain some more screen space -- all features are still available without the text area. There is also an icon-only horizontal version on the updater.

Zidu has done some very nice work on the DrumsUI spell timer, with two different versions. You should be able to use one of them alongside DarqUI with no problems. If you don't mind using Notepad to add spell names manually, the short version is very lightweight and functional. If you want the ability to change the spells around from the game window, the full standalone version is better.

Zidu's short version, manual edit

Full version with editing window

Both of the alternatives display a bold, sanserif font for almost everything on the UI. They are not exactly like Segoe but they are clearer than the defaults, and the leading issue has been mitigated. Try them out from the updates page of the utility and let me know what you think. They are experimental for now.

awe, ok well ty anyhow keep up the great work!
