    Default EgrasUI 9.0 (TSS Compliant)

    EgrasUI (EQ User Interface) 9.0
    Compliant with "The Serpent Spine" Expansion


    EgrasUI has been a project of mine for several years. There have been over 3500 downloads of it from various sites. With the release of "The Serpents Spine" there were many changes that were required. With those changes and a bunch more by me, the UI got a version change. Below you will find everything you need to know about the UI and how to get it. Some of the features of EgrasUI are:

    You will find alot of odd and different ideas in my UI.
    • COMPLETE revamp of the Player Window
    • Completely stackable windows to conserve screen space
    • Buffs and Songs in a format like no other
    • Super Bank with tabs for viewing bag contents six bags at a time
    • Compressed user friendly intentory
    • Redesigned spell graphics (no lame gems)
    • TWENTY in-game customizable clicky slots
    • The EQ button is a clicky bar of your gear
    • The group tab on the hotbutton window has HUGE bars for boxing
    • Single tab access to all inventory container slots
    • THE NEW CON-COLOR-CHANGING TARGET CROSSHAIR
    • No different files or setups from melee to caster
    • and more.....
    Its layout is for high resolution settings and based off of previous versions of EgrasUI and my preferences. EgrasUI is completely TSS compliant. Any issues or ideas, please let me know. Most the UI as it is now was based off suggestions from users and fellow EQ players.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    EgrasUI 90. Download:
    You dont have to scroll down to see the changes from 8.0 to 9.0 if your already happy with my work and have purchased the TSS expansion. Its pretty much a requirement if your going to use my UIs. Im not updating EgrasUI 8.0 to be compliant with TSS.

    The most current EgrasUI 9.0 file can be found by clicking here now.

    I removed all of the common files not custom in EgrasUI to reduce the zip file size. You can download them by clicking here now.


    Installation Instructions:
    Make a copy of your default UI and rename it to anything. This name cannot have any spaces. Download the zip file to your system. Extract the files in the zip to the folder renamed default folder you made. Go in game and load the UI using the button on the main tab of your options window.

    Resolving Issues:
    The number of changes by Sony and the new changes by me were extensive enough for me to up the version. This helps me assist the users, so if your having issues with an EgrasUI, ensure you give me the proper version, window and a decent description of the problem

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In-Game Screenshot of my Layout:
    The windows can be stacked and split to make them fit to your preferences, but this is how mine look. Click the image to see it full screen.



    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hotbutton Window 1:
    This is the window I use for just about everything. Gives the user a compressed view of everything you want to know, click or view on one small area of your screen. The tabs are new to 9.0.

    Tab one you can see has the new Corruption statistic on it. I also removed the guages for AA and XP as they took up too much room. I have reduced them to a % digit.

    Tab two is your four left bags in the inventory and the slots within them. No opening of each bag is required. See the contents of all four slots/bags on one little screen. This is NOT a cheat to get more bag slots. If you dont have a 10-slot, you wont be able to use all ten slots you see on the tab.

    Tab three is the same as tab two, but of the slots/bags for the right 4 slots on your inventory. This is NOT a cheat to get more bag slots. If you dont have a 10-slot, you wont be able to use all ten slots you see on the tab.

    Tab four is the previous EgrasUI group window. Has the huge guages for the group health bars and pets.




    Hotbutton Windows 2-3 (aka Style A):
    The default for EgrasUI is what you see below for HB 2 and 3. The top two rows of these windows are the right top inventory slot and the one just below it. The bottom rows are hotbuttons. All you have to do is place the corresponding slots under each container slot. This makes it to where you can grab items from your bags, move them to the bottom row, quickly click them and return them back to the slot.



    Hotbutton Windows 4 (aka Style B):
    The default for EgrasUI is what you see below for HB 4. I will be offering the other variations as before when I get the main coding completed.



    Hotbutton Windows 2-4 Alternate Configurations:
    Configuration Style A/A/B: Hotbutton 2 (Style A), HotButton 3 (Style A) and Hotbutton 4 (Style B)
    Configuration Style A/B/B: Hotbutton 2 (Style A), HotButton 3 (Style B) and Hotbutton 4 (Style B)
    Configuration Style B/B/B: Hotbutton 2 (Style B), HotButton 3 (Style B) and Hotbutton 4 (Style B)

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Player Window:
    This window got a couple new features. The out of combat features added by Sony and I decided to add a "no target" graphic. Below I have taken a shot of each way the window will look.

    First Image: No Target, Standing
    Second Image: NPC on Target, Standing
    Third Image: Attacking NPC, Standing
    Forth Image: No Target, OOC Timer Running
    Fifth Image: Corpse on Target, OOC Timer Running
    Sixth Image: NPC on Target, OOC Timer Running




    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Big Bank (aka Super Bank):
    The shot says it all. You can view your main bank screen or you can click a tab and view the content of six bags at a time. No more opening bags to find that item you can't remember where you put. Each page has the titles you see on the shot above the row of bag content slots. This is NOT a cheat to get more bag slots. If you dont have a 10-slot, you wont be able to use all ten slots you see on the tab.



    Here is the file to put it back to the old way: Original EgrasUI BigBank Window

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    EQ Main Window:
    The EQ button was a waste of window in my opinion, so I added the inventory slots to it. They seem very small and hard to see, but in no time your used to looking at them and clicking gear like a champion.



    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Target Window:
    Since I changed the player window to show my target and the targets target, I had nothing functional I needed in this window, but the con of a target. I had to figure out how to show that an nothing else. I made a crosshair and embedded it into the code. The result is a small corsshair I place in the center of my screen that changes colors to the con of a target.

    You will notice below there are now seven cons, not six as before. Sony added the silver con for trivial targets and shifted the rest. Keep this in mind when your touring the game.




    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Actions Window:
    This window just wouldnt fit the UI way back, so I made it wider to fit my format. Its not a new window. I just put it here to show there is nothing that cannot be done with a UI fomat if you need it done.



    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Music Player Window (aka Timer Mod):
    This window is a fully functional music player with some changes to the layout. The difference is that it can also be used as a timer for AEs, spawns or anything else you want to time. The only compnent you need is the following timer mp3 files. They have voice added in for the 10-second and end time to make it easier to notice.



    Download one or all of the following: 1.0 Minute, 1.5 Minute, 2.0 Minute, 2.5 Minute, 3.0 Minute, 3.5 Minute, 4.0 Minute, 4.5 Minute, 5.0 Minute, 8.0 Minute, 19.0 Minute, 28.0 Minute, 36.0 Minute, and 60 Minute


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Combat Ability Window:
    This window is what the melee see. Its their version of the Cast Spell Window. Its not a new mod for EgrasUI, but needed to post s snapshot to make the melee happy I included them. I duck so many of their heals, that they need to be coddled some.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Inventory:
    The same window from previous versions. Just a core window to this UI and I wanted to show a snapshot of it.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Cast Spell Window:q
    This window didnt change in 9.0, but as you can see it really doesnt need much change. The custom gem slots were a bit rough to create, but I feel they do the job MUCH nicer than the default ones.

    You see the mana, mana gauge and mana percent on the screen? I did that so pure melee arent bothered with mana. They cannot see this window and it makes EgrasUI function for caster AND melee without a seperate version being required.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Spell Book:
    This window just had too much pretty stuff and took up too much space. I couldnt see around it when I needed to get to a spell. Took all of the extra pretty stuff out and compressed the size for ease of use.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Map Window:
    Another one of those huge windows that ate up WAY too much screen space when in use. Alot of custom graphics and resizing, but I think it turned out alot smaller and more useful in the end. The group button was added recently to view the location of your fellow adventurers of course.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Options Window:
    This window is was too busy and made certain options difficult to find. I added color catagories to it and it seemed to help me find things easier. All the tabs got the same make-over. Just dont think you want to scroll for days viewing each of them.

    Enjoy the UI and let me know of any issues with my UI. Also send any requests if you have them. They are what I build this UI off of.

    Thanks Egras love this UI with 4 hotkeys alwyz available and also with the bags included in the hotkeys.

    With the High resolution when i switch to windowed half my windows are not visable is this simply because of the use of high resolution or is there something i can change so i can view the same screen both in windowed and fullscreen ?

    Okay I am a dumby I will say it now.

    But what link do I hit to down load the UI?

    I did this one The most current EgrasUI 9.0 file can be found by clicking here now. But it is telling me that it is not there.

    I saved this one though I removed all of the common files not custom in EgrasUI to reduce the zip file size. You can download them by clicking here now.

    Is that the one I need?

    I downloaded your UI and on the whole I like it very much, but I was wondering why you did not make either the buff and song windows as one window since they can not be resized and they are to big to be put end to end across the top of the screen or allow them to be resized so that they could fit anywhere. I will try it out on my girlfriends sk as that is the only melee char (hybrid) that we have to see the combat discs window. Again a very nice UI.

    There seems to be a bug in the Hotbutton 1 window. When you click on the page for bags 1-4 and then click on the button for bags 5-8 you still get the same display of bags 1-4. This is true also if you first click the page for bags 5-8 first and then click the page for bags 1-4 then you still get the bags 5-8 display. Apparently, whatever the first page you click on is the page that is retained and you cant tab back and forth.

    Another suggestion I would make would be to have the buttons for group commands appear on the page where group members appear in the Hot Button 1 page. It would seem to be easy to put the "Invite", "Follow" and "LFG" buttons in between the group members on the page. This would then permit you to eliminate the need for displaying the other Group Window box.

    I may be the only one that has this problem but I would also like to see the Group Members in the HotButton 1 window have the corresponding Function key targeting numbers in front of their name so I dont have to figure out if I am on the 4th group member or the fifth group member or whatever. (eg: the second group member would have F2 in front of his name, third member F3 etc. Just makes it a little easier to target the group member with the Function keys when you are making split second target changes.

    Was just wondering if there are any known problems with the update for TBS ? every since I downloaded the update i have had client crashing problems when trying to zone into TBS zones as well as even have general monitor display problems .
    I am not saying my issues are due to the update just asking if anyone else is having a prob because my issues seem to have came around the time i downloaded the TBS update.
