Default ACUI : Public Beta

This UI is the design child of Elezibeth with coding work provided by Enok. A special thanks go out to t.King for the permission to use his excellent Spell Icons and Gems.
-

The UI as you see it IS currently compatible with the forthcoming June 11th Megapatch!

-

On a personal note, I hate quiet beta testers. Post your comments, thoughts, suggestions, bugs, issues, and glitches here so that I know what the general public is thinking.

PLEASE READ THE READ-ME FILE TO AVOID ASKING QUESTIONS REGARDING THE SKIN THAT ARE ANSWERED THERE

Now, without further Ado...


Download Beta 4

NOTES

Moving / Resize Notes:

Chat Window: to resize you can resize top border, and in the upper right and upper left corners you can stretch it's width. To move it, move the mouse one pixel down from the vertical resizing and click and hold to drag it around.

Moving the Selector Window: you must click on the far left or far right pixel to move it; this thin line is hard to find.

Looks Great! But I can only change how tall the chat window is and cant move it otherwise. Also the window selector window seems unmovable as well. Not sure if theres some trick to it or not.

Yeah, there's a trick to those windows:

Chat Window: to resize you can resize top border, and in the upper right and upper left corners you can stretch it's width. To move it, move the mouse one pixel down from the vertical resizing and click and hold to drag it around.

To move the selector window you must click on the far left or far right pixel to move it; this thin line is hard to find.

The chat window has a little lock above the up arrow, click that and then try moving it. Not sure if that will make the final release or not.

As for the Window Selector, it's VERY hard to move right now but keep at it, you'll get it.

Enok, think we can get a bit wider grab area for that window?

Well, in our final release we'll include an INI that positions the selector window so it isn't that important that people be able to mvoe it around, but yeah, I'll make it more "grabbable" =)

well its now perfect. I have some cosmetic probs though. The background is too transparent (i already adjusted the transparency controls) when i have one window on top of another their both unreadable. Also more buttons on the window selector for windows would be nice but i already knew all the keyboard commands to open them. Those my only probs. Thanks for making my new permanent UI

I keep having a little problem with the hotbuttons, they are clickable like once then I have to ALT-H to take em off and then put em back before I can use them again....

Yes Margrave, the hotbuttons issue is rather major. That's why there's that GIANT tooltip that shows up when you mouse over and they aren't usable.

Enok

P.S. - I'll get it worked out sometime.

Thumbs down

I tried this out this morning. I did not like it. here is why...

1- the "player" window info where it is,the size it is and in the format it is displayed is awkward.
2- the chat windows are to difficult to position.
3- the combo "window selector/hotbutton" is a different look but the new look isnt worth the lost functionality.
4- the Inventory screen is too bulky.
5-I liked the spell cast window!
6- I saw no modifications to any of the other windows, beides that semi-transparent background which IMO need to be a little darker and a little less transparent.
7-I also liked the buff/Sdbuff windows, especially the way the buffs filled in from left to right!

these are my opinions on the beta version i saw.

Ok I LOVE this UI. I have everything in its place now, and my only issues are the known hotbutton error, which isnt that big and the lag meter chain icon doesnt seem to work for me.

For personal use I have changed the spell book and inventory to something else as I didnt much care for the default ones, but other than that this rocks! Maybe a little darker trans background, not sure. But I love this. Thank you for making it!

Here's my t.king based spellbook that "sorta" matches this UI. You can click in the center to close and on the left and right edges to turn pages.

P.S. - Had to split it into two zip files. =(
