Oct 10, 2018: Chaos Descending Beta
For Beta Testers
: you can download everything using the DarqUI utility except the Guild window. Check the "Skip" checkbox for Guild and use the Beta version below instead.
darqui_guild_beta_v3008.zip (Oct 15)
To use DarqUI on the Beta server, drop a copy of the DarqUI Unified utility into \EverQuest II\BetaServer\UI\
and run it from there. The utility will detect its location and download into the correct folder. You will also get a Beta Tools tab that will assist with porting settings from Live or Test.
If you are not a Beta tester
, you don't need to do anything special. You can use the DarqUI updater as usual to receive file updates for Live servers as they occur.

Credit to thepriz for a suggestion that inspired this feature
Notes: DarqUI utility v188.8.131.52 or higher is required to set up the multi-account feature. Entering account usernames and passwords is optional. The single account quick-camp dropdown was not changed. The Shutdown (Camp) help file has been updated to explain fully the new feature.
- Multi-account Shutdown (Camp) interface
- Extended target alerts feature
- New Letterbox configuration page
- Corrected a bug in the Stat Monitor dropdown
- Duplicate Settings window: fixed an issue with certain DPI settings
- A new option to exclude DarqUI files when initially setting up
- The updater can now offer to delete unused DarqUI files
- Fixed some color list dropdown choices
If you are currently using the DarqUI account-switch feature on the main login page, please migrate to the new multi-account camp window. The old loginscene file is not compatible and will be deprecated in the near future.
Sep 20, 2018: Target Alerts
Using the Extended Player window you can receive visual and audible alerts when your target is a quest update, gives bonus AA experience, or matches a specific name. Use the Player/Extended Player page in the Window Manager to configure this new feature.

Aug 26, 2018: Large Preset Broker Prices
The Set Price window has been amended to include large broker price presets. Large presets are platinum-only, and can be saved up to 10 million (9,999,999p) for each character

Aug 21, 2018: Alternate Letterbox
This new window duplicates the function of the built-in game letterbox with some technical distinctions and additional features. Rather than reducing the size of the 3D world viewport which has been reported to produce glitches with certain video hardware, the new DarqUI Letterbox overlays top and bottom masking areas onto an unaltered viewport.
- Specify black or a different color
- Change opacity
- Change size of upper and lower areas independently
- Show or hide decorative tinsel borders
- Allow or prevent mouse click-through
- Settings are configurable for each character
Thanks to Furiant
for the suggestion
To access settings for this window, open the in-game Window Manager and choose Letterbox from the dropdown. Also please click the Help button at the top of the Window Manager if you have any questions about the window.

DarqUI Unified combines the best of DarqUI, DarqUI Live and EQ2Inventory into one, with some useful new features. Standard DarqUI users
can now choose to make quick, permanent configuration changes right from the game screen while playing, as an alternative to loading up the external window utility. There is no longer a limit to the number of characters that can be customized, and many of the settings that were previously shared by all of your characters can now be configured for each character separately.
DarqUI Live users
can take advantage of an all-new configuration app with features like Quick Setup, backup and restore, character and spell file maintenance, and a new lookup feature
that queries Daybreak servers for spell lines and icons to use for your spell buttons. The DarqUI Unified configuration app has been rewritten from the ground up to provide all of the conveniences from the DarqUI Window Utility and the Live Updater. You will find many usability improvements and an uncluttered design that matches the familiar in-game window manager.
Large size windows
DarqUI Unified offers larger-size versions of many windows to accommodate higher resolution monitors. Choose the size you prefer from the Updates page of the utility. These include Active Journal (quest helper), Casting Bar, Chat, Dissonance, Examine, Experience Bar, Group, Implied Target, Maintained Spell Monitor, Maintained Spells, Mercenary, NPC Spell Monitor, Pet, Player, Raid, Savagery, Target, Threat and Tracking. DarqUI windows that were already usable with higher resolutions include Detrimental Effects, Gear Buff Macros, Hotbars, Icon Bar and Spell Effects.
Track and search equipment, bags, bank, shared bank, house vault, Wardrobe contents, mount and Familiar collections and up to 9 houses, guild hall and player-made dungeons per character from the DarqUI Unified interface.
Chat Log Parser
features keyword, category and date/time searches that recognize English, German and French log files. Use the preset category filters or build your own using regular expressions.
Install and update the official EQ2MAP alongside DarqUI with a single click.
Help files are now available for all DarqUI Unified windows and utility functions. Context-sensitive help information can be accessed externally from the window utility or from the window manager in-game. Use the new, more robust "Make default" feature on the Files page of the utility to set DarqUI as your default. This will prevent needing to use /loadui from the game window which crashes the awesomium browser.
There is a new French spell suggestion file in addition to German and English.
DarqUI Unified Notifications
is a Windows tray icon that checks periodically for DarqUI and EQ2MAP updates. More information for setting up and using DarqUI_Notify can be found here
. The app is optional, and is included in the download on this page.
