Description
A SOLUTION HAS BEEN FOUND THAT SHOULD WORK FOR EVERBODY

Press this: ALT + ~

*MINOR CHANGE AS OF LU14.1*
Image file is included now, make sure you have it in. The slight underlap in the screenshot now looks a TON better.

Bug Fixes:
/con button is now fixed!
Startbutton no longer snaps to inventory window.
You can no longer accidentally unequip your manastone.
It is now easier to drag the startbutton!

-----
First of all, the biggest and most easily recognizable feature... MANASTONE SUPPORT! Pushing the green squared button will immediately turn the button red and start a 1 minute timer. One minute later, the button will become green again telling you 1 minute has passed. You must note, that it actually takes 61 seconds to cast the manastone, but you can only set the timer for 60 seconds; if you push the button as soon as it turns green, it will tell you that the manastone is not ready. But, if you wait a second and push the button again, the manastone will cast and the 1 minute timer will restart. I must point out that everytime you push the manastone button, whether it is red or green, it will restart the 1 minute timer. If you install this mod and the timer is not working (its rare, but it happens to some people), do the following:

Options > Alarms > Session Duration:
  • Hours: 0
  • Minutes: 1
  • Repeat: OFF
then click "restart, that will fix it.

The second thing people will notice is the UNEQUIP ALL button. Often, if you are raiding and you know you will die, the leader of the raid will /yell the mob. If this happens, you can click the unequip all button and all your armor will immediately be unequipped! This helps save on repair costs (especially if you are in full fabled). Unfortunately there is no button to automatically re-equip all your armor. Too bad. This feature alone is a reason why everyone should have this startbutton. If mob is not /yelled, then the button will unequip 1 item at a time, each time you press it.

Also included is complex shader support! Much of the visual lag in the game is due to the high graphics setting of characters and surroundings. Lowering the complex shader distance will effect how fast complex graphics will get shadow support. So this bar is a quick method to changing the quality setting of your screen without having to push the video quality settings and having that 5-10 second screen lag. There are also buttons for your the other activatable slot, a Fishbone Earring and two Imbued Ruby Rings. I kept the ranged ammor slot counter in, but now it is smaller. This mod supports all classes, melee or caster alike.
-----

This is my version of Goldi's Start Button. There are harvesting menus, the note pad (with included note builder configured for my OCD skin style), as well as a built in ammo slot into the start menu using a some freaky method that Quib came up with a while ago. Pressing the arrow on the start button will hide and unhide the volume and video controls...

This mod has all the features that Goldi's StartButton mod has:
> Follow Button for quick /follow
> Bags Button for quick /togglebags
> Hood Button for quick /showhood
> Illusion Button for quick /hide_illusions
> Kosmos NightVision Button
> Stop Eating/Drinking Buttons for easy /stopeat and /stopdrink
> Harvesting Information Window
> Notepad with built in Note Assembler
> Kosmos Video Performance Panel with Video Compiler
Click here to check out Goldi's StartButton Mod.

In addition to Goldi's features, I have added in a more active volume control panel and an ammo display for melee characters. In the future, I will make a caster version available for this mod.

For anyone having issues on fresh installs or showing on new chars...

If you are doing a fresh install or having problems getting the mod to show:

(In game) Options -> User Interface -> Game Windows -> (Uncheck) Keep Main HUD Windows Visible then click accept and Press the Alt + ~ to make it show. After you have it loaded up then you can go back and recheck the option to keep your Main HUD windows from being hidable.

This may need to be repeated for all newly created chars.

Hope that helps.

This mod is just awesome I have to say. I started a new character though and cannot get it to work for the life of me on just the NEW character. All others still works fine but it will not show up on the new one. Any suggestions of what to do?

Well it looks like LU17 broke this completely and this is one of my favorite pieces. Any plans to make this mod LU17 compatible?

Thanks for this great mod - I however wished that the default Combat Audio was OFF by default - I keep saving it back to zero from EQ2 audio options panel but everytime I restart, the mod puts it back to 0.250...I guess I could venture and try to fix the mod xml but that's not my point

How to fix

The video settings are in the "video" folder in the "eq2ui_video_preset" files

Edit those to whatever you like .

The "~" fix seems to require an english keyboard or something.
hitting "ALT SHIFT" toggles your keyboard layout for an easier access.

Works for me yay .. so now i use the new versions too

Hello Jaxel

do you know about prolems with the startbutton in fetish 4.9 UI?

When I treid to install your startbutten, it shows me the startbutton in the original colors, so it seems it is loading it, but every additional feature beside the startbutton itself is not showed.

It seems for me that just the border around the startbutton should be streched, but it is not resizeable.

Is there any workaround for fetish UI?

Thansk a lot for your work,

Regards, Prime

Is there a way to switch between characters faster, like camp and login with another character right away and bypass the character select screen? I would think this would be part of the start button.

Perhaps I'm a minority on this, but I preferred the non-underlap version of this mod..

Other than that...awesome
Love this mod, actually, all your OCD stuff. Starting to realize that maybe I have a slight case of OCD as well. But I have to agree that it would be nice to show the second row in it's entirety. I am trying to find an old download cause it drives me crazy have only half showing.


Great work
