Description
LU17
Tablets II should work fine with LU17, though there may be a few minor version warnigs. The windows should load without a problem however. If anyone notices any windows that are being reverted to default or not working anymore please let me know.



This is the "Stage 2" release of the revived Tablets II User Interface. Due to huge, major, changes in the EQ2 UI since the last version of TabletsII release by Talyns there were many incompatabilities in the UI that caused way to many problems. So I completely rebuilt the UI from the ground up to ensure compatability. The "Stage 2" release represents a stage where 90% of the UI should now be fully skinned and all advanced features should be working as they used to.

However with that said, the EQ2 UI has a HUGE number of windows and oodles more individual elements that had to be skinned and coded for. It is entirely possible, indeed very likely, that i've missed some here and there or made some mistakes. If you see any inconsistancies, bugs, mistakes, oddities, whatever anywhere please let me know where. Also I have NOT skinned 100% of the windows but rather all the ones used on a regular basis. If you find a window totally unskinned and it is a window that you use often and would like skinned please let me know which window and i'll add it to my list to do.

Of particular note, i'd ask that everyone help test this out and keep an eye out for the following issues:
Bad or missing titlebars or titlebar text on windows
Bugged or unskinned Tab Panes
Dropdown boxes that do not appear fully skinned or have black text making them hard or impossible to read.
Buttons not skinned properly
Dynamic fields (text or buttons etc that the game "fills in" with current game data) that are not showing the RIGHT data. For example a coin slot showing the wrong coin values.

Those are my hot issues right now as there are elements here and there i've been having these issues with. I think I got them all but i'm quite sure i've missed some and more eyes will help me find them.

Current Known Issues:
These are issues i'm aware of and will be fixed in a future release.
The graphics for the ACTIVE tab in a tab pane are a tad messed up
The drop down boxes in the persona window for setting Titles have the wrong text style/color.

README:
Tablets II Complete Custom UI for EverQuest 2
Original Tablets II created by Talyns of Everfrost
Tablets II totally rebuilt and brought up to date and maintained by Agathorn

Tablets II is a complete custom UI for the game EverQuest 2 by Sony Online Entertainment. It replaces the game's default user interface graphics and code with a different style. It is fully 100% legal to use with the game, as it uses the UI modding system designed and released by Sony.

To use the Tablets II UI follow these instructions:
1) Open Windows Explorer (My Computer) and browse to where you installed EverQuest 2
2) Open the UI subfolder
3) Createa NEW folder named TabletsII
4) Unzip the contents of this archive to the folder you just created
5) Open the new folder you just created
6) You will see several folders that start with the name images_", for example "images_blue". Choose ONE that you want to use and rename it to "images"
7) Open up Notepad
8) In Notepad enter the following information:

cl_ui_skinname TabletsII
cl_ui_subdir UI/

9) Save this file as "eq2.ini" in your main Everquest 2 directory
10) Start up Everquest 2 and enjoy!

ALTERNATIVE

Recently Sony has fixed the ability to change UIs while playing the game using in game commands. Sort of. If you wish, you can load into the
game using either the default UI ot any other UI as you have setup, but once in game "switch" to the Tablets II UI. If you do this, you can play using this
UI but when you exit the game and restart you will be back to whatever your default UI is. The above installation steps set Tablets II as your default UI,
but these procedures below will allow you to TEMPORARILY use the Tablets II UI for a individual gaming session.

1) Complete steps 1 through 6 (inclusive) above
2) Load into EQ2 as normal
3) Once fully loaded into the game type:

/loadui TabletsII

4) There will be a short delay while the Tablets II UI is loaded. Once the UI is loaded you will notice some windows will have no information or "dummy" information
5) Zone into another zone to force a complete refresh and loading of the UI (This is an issue caused by bugs in /loadui and not the Tablets II skin)
6) Enjoy.

The attached screenshot is in the Fantasy Grey style, but all the original colors from Tablets II are included and supported. Screenshots of each supplied color option will be provided at some point when I get a chance.

Use ALT-T to bring up the target and implied windows if they are not showing for some reason. Should only have to do this once.

Good catch on the claim window. It changed, on test, RIGHT before the patch went live so I didin't get a chance to do it and then I forgot about it. For now delete the popup_claim.xml file to use the default one and i'll get a Tablets II one out soon as I can.

Theres a thread here:

Sorry I forgot to post that link earlier. Can you go there and post your ui.log if one was created? Do you have DOF?

Can you be a little more specific than just doesn't work? What exactly doesn't work.. What happens?

Couple things to check:
1) Make sure you are renaming one of the apparopriate images directories as indicated in the _README.TXT file.
2) Ensure you follow the proper installation instructions for EQ2MAP as in the same readme file. I'm unsure of what will happen if EQ2MAP is not properly installed but it might be bad
3) On the off chance you had an old install of Tablets II make sure you wipe that out and start fresh.

Anyway if you can give some more detail on whats happening and what it isn't doing I might be able to figure it out.
