How do I upload the custom interface I made?

Here are the most common steps to take when sending us your custom interface:

  1. You will need to zip (not rar, ace, exe or anything else.) your custom interface files.
  2. Only include the files that were modified. Interfaces that include default xml and tga files will not be approved.
  3. Include a readme.txt files with instructions on how to install your interface.
  4. Log into Everquest and take a picture of your interface. Then convert the picture to JPG or GIF format.
  5. Once on our webpage click on the blue “downloads” button on the top right then select the category that best fits your interface and click the upload icon. If you made an entire interface using 90% of your own work upload it to the complete sets category. If you modified another author’s work upload it to the mix&match category and include credits in the description.
  6. Attach the zipfile and the gif/jpg *do not use punctuation in the file names*
  7. Fill in a good description of your interface. Maybe even include a link to the thread where you’re providing some support.
  8. Click the submit button and wait until it’s approved. You can check the status of your interfaces and update them using the “List/Edit My interfaces” link in the login block located on the top right on the main page.
  9. Once your interface is approved please feel free to start a new thread in our released forum so members can discuss your interface.

Your submission will be deleted ** if ** :
  1. file upload is incomplete.
  2. missing zip file or file isn't zipped.
  3. missing gif/jpg
  4. uploaded to the wrong category. (example: if your skin is made up of others work you need to use the mix&match category. The complete skin category is for original work only)
  5. files that were not modified are included in the zip creating waste. Only submit the files you modified with no default files. If you include the default files in your zip your skin is sure to break soon. We wont host those!
  6. unknown exe's vbs's and other executable programs are included in the zip.
  7. Interface is larger then 6mb (should never be over 6mb) and you uploaded it in multiple parts.
  8. we just don't like the way it looks.

We may or may not contact you if we decline your submission. If you ask us why your submission was declined we will most likely not remember why since we get over 50 submissions a day and have 4 different people working in this area. Just being honest.

How do I update my custom interface in your database?

If you already have an interface in our downloads database and wish to update the zipfile, jpg/gif or description you can click on the link named “List/Edit My Interfaces” on the main page of www.eqinterface.com in the login block (after you have logged in) on the top right.

Once you click the link you will see a list of interfaces you have in our downloads database and the far right column will be “Author options” and a [ edit ] link for each interface you have.

When you click on the edit link you will be brought to a screen where you can update your files or the description. This works similar to the upload screen when you first submitted your files.

If you choose to update your zipfile & gif/jpg your interface will be put back in the queue for a moderator/admin to approve again. This is done for security reasons as the file moderators check all files before they are approved. So after you update your files they will not be available to anyone until a moderator/admin approves them.
