Age Of Conan Mirage UI for Age of Conan v2.2 Released! (5/23/2010)


Version 2.2 of the Mirage UI for Age of Conan's is ready and up to date with the Rise of the Godslayer expansion latest patch. No new features in this release, enjoy!

=================================================
MIRAGE UI FOR AGE OF CONAN
Version 2.2, May 23rd, 2010
Created and maintained by Eduardo "LedMirage" Lucero
=================================================

Thank you for downloading the Mirage UI for Age of Conan, this modification adds two static shortcut bars with 17 buttons each fixed above the main shortcut bar, a brand new larger group and pet window, enhances the display of buffs and debuffs and makes your friends and guild list easier to read. All of this without removing any functionality to the existing default user interface. Based on popular demand there are now five variations total: 4-Bars, 3-Bars, 2-Bars, 3-Bars-Small and 2-Bars-Small, the default variation is 3-Bars.

-------------------------------------------------
The Extra Bars
-------------------------------------------------
The two Mirage UI shortcut bars use the button slots and bindings originally used by the two default UI extra floating shortcutbars that the game supports. What this means is that you can bind every one of the new 34 buttons by going to OPTIONS > CONTROLS and assigning hotkey shortcuts to the following:

Mirage UI Shortcut Bar #1
(17 Buttons, the first row located above the default game shortcutbar)

The first 7 buttons correspond to "1st Extended Action Button" numbers 11 through 17
The last 10 buttons correspond to "1st Extended Action Button" numbers 1 through 10 and they line up perfectly with the default shortcut bar

Mirage UI Shortcut Bar #2
(17 Buttons, the second row located above the default game shortcutbar, only seen in 3 or 4-Bars variations)

The first 7 buttons correspond to "2nd Extended Action Button" numbers 11 through 17
The last 10 buttons correspond to "2nd Extended Action Button" numbers 1 through 10 and they line up perfectly with the default shortcut bar

Mirage UI Shortcut Bar Zero (Recommended for advanced users and players level 40 and higher)
(17 Buttons, the first row located below the default game shortcutbar, only seen in 4-Bars variation)

The first 3 buttons correspond to "1st Extended Action Button" numbers 18 through 20
The next 3 buttons correspond to "2nd Extended Action Button" numbers 18 through 20
The next button does not have a keybinding
The next 3 buttons (directly below 1,2,3) do not have a keybinding, but when you reach level 40 and obtain the extra attacks or spell weaving the buttons 11, 12 and 13 (Q, V and E by default) appear.
The next 7 buttons do no have a keybinding

The default UI extra floating shortcut bars use different button slots and can not have hotkey bindings anymore, however you can still use them, this gives you a total of 34 Mirage UI buttons and the 16 floating shortcut bar buttons for a total of 50 additional button slots! Please note that there is a minor display bug that shows keybindings over the floating shortcut bars, these keybindings are for the new Mirage UI buttons and do not affect functionality over the floating shortcut bar buttons.

-------------------------------------------------
The New Group and Pet Window
-------------------------------------------------
The group and pet window were completely redesigned using all new custom graphics and increasing the size of the party and pet health bars, it also allows for the icon display of negative effects on all party members. (Note: There is a bug in the game which tags most player stances as "hostile" debuffs)

-------------------------------------------------
The Modified Player and Target Unit Frames
-------------------------------------------------
Both the player and target unit frames now display icons for both positive and negative effects, also the 'Target of Target' frame has been moved above the target frame. In addition the Health, Stamina and Mana bar graphics have been replaced with all new custom graphics. Fonts have been tweaked all around to make them more readable.

-------------------------------------------------
The Improved Guild and Friends Window
-------------------------------------------------
The friend and guild member list now has a darker background, the color for guild members is now a much more visible green that matches the new guild chat color and the friend color is now bright teal. In addition a darker background for every other alternating rows has been added and the columns for Rank, Class and Region have been made wider. On the guild panel the "LEAVE" button has been removed to prevent accidental departure from your guild, the text command "/guild leave" still works as intended if you really need to leave your guild.

-------------------------------------------------
Other Miscellaenous Tweaks
-------------------------------------------------
The Combat Rose and interactive icons have been repositioned vertically as to not overlap the new shortcut bars. Also the Mini Pet Control Bar, Perk Bar Toggle Button and the Soul Fragment tracker have been both repositioned to the center of the screen and right above the Mirage UI shortcut bars.

=================================================
INSTALLATION
=================================================

Mirage UI Installation:

1. Exit the game.

2. Find the folder named "Customized" found under ..\Age of Conan\Data\Gui\Customized\ once there delete only the contents found inside of the Customized folder. Do NOT delete any other folders otherwise you may have to deal with a 911MB download! This is done in order to prevent potential conflicts with other user modified content and compiled xml files (*.bxml)

3. Extract all the files from the Mirage UI Zip file to your root folder for the game, for example "C:\Program Files\Funcom\Age of Conan\", make sure to use the folder names options with winzip to create the necessary folder paths when you extract the files. Again, extract all the files in the zip file to your main Age of Conan game folder and do not worry about getting prompted to overwrite files in the DEFAULT directory these are custom Mirage UI graphic files and they do not overwrite any base game files (hence they're named mui_*.tga)

To install the other variations of the mod (Small, Small-2Bars, Normal-2Bars, Normal-4Bars) skip to step #6

4. Launch the game

5. Enjoy!

Mirage UI variations Installation:
6. Find the folder named "Customized" found in ..\Age of Conan\Data\Gui\Customized\ and delete this folder. Use caution here and only delete the folder named "Customized" nothing else!.

7. Find the appropriate folder named accordingly to the variation of the Mirage UI you want to use :
**NOTE: The default variation is Normal-3-Bars and does not require any folders to be renamed to be used.**
  • "MUI_SMALL_3BARS_Rename_this_to_Customized" found in ..\Age of Conan\Data\Gui\ this is the small 2/3 scale variation with 3 shortcut bars total.
  • "MUI_SMALL_2BARS_Rename_this_to_Customized" found in ..\Age of Conan\Data\Gui\ this is the small 2/3 scale variation with 2 shortcut bars total.
  • "MUI_SMALL_4BARS_Rename_this_to_Customized" found in ..\Age of Conan\Data\Gui\ this is the small 2/3 scale variation with 4 shortcut bars total.
  • "MUI_NORMAL_2BARS_Rename_this_to_Customized" found in ..\Age of Conan\Data\Gui\ this is the normal scale variation with 3 shortcut bars total.
  • "MUI_NORMAL_4BARS_Rename_this_to_Customized" found in ..\Age of Conan\Data\Gui\ this is the normal scale variation with 4 shortcut bars total.
8. Rename the folder for the variation you want to use to "Customized" so you will end up with the following folder path: ..\Age of Conan\Data\Gui\Customized\

9. Launch the game and enjoy!


=================================================
HOW TO UN-INSTALL THE MIRAGE UI MOD
=================================================

1. Exit the game.

2. Find the folder named "Customized" found under ..\Age of Conan\Data\Gui\Customized\ once there delete only the contents found inside of the Customized folder. Do NOT delete any other folders otherwise you may have to deal with a 911MB download!


=================================================
Known Issues and workarounds
=================================================
If you have any problems not listed below it is highly recommended that do a clean installation of the Mirage UI as indicated in the Installation section, if this does not resolve your issue or if you have more specific questions on how to further customize the Mirage UI package please let us know in the forums at http://ledmirage.net/
  • If you don't see health, stamina and mana bars and are missing the all of the images for the buttosn (invisible button backgrounds) then most likely you didn't extract all the graphics from the zip file into the correct location - All TGA files go in the ..\Data\Gui\Default\gfx\MirageUI\ folder path. Don't worry about them overwriting any base game files as they go in their own custom "MirageUI" folder.
  • There are no extra buttons (Q, V & E) on all the variations except the 4-Bar version, this is by design since you can map hotkeys for any of the 34 additional buttons - including Q V and E, and when you hit level 40 the two extra attacks are on your abilities panel where you can drag them to any button you wish (with the keybindings of your choice).
  • The player and target frames display both positive and negative effects, this is by design to circumvent a current game bug that tags many of the player stances as negative effects (debuffs). As of yet I have not been able to create a new separate buff frame to split negative and positive but I am still looking for a better solution. If you *REALLY* need to filter out positive or negative effects there are plenty of posts explaining how to do it on my forums at http://ledmirage.net
  • Duplicate shortcut overlays (keybindings text) for ability icons on the floating shortcut bars and the new mirage ui bars are a known glitch that does not cause any problems. You can use all the buttons on the additional floating bars with the only limitation being that there are no keybindings for them (as they are used to bind the new custom Mirage UI shortcut bars)
  • The "LEAVE" button from the guild panel was removed by design, if you need to leave your guild use the text command "/guild leave".
  • As of the July 17th patch Funcom made the text display of hotkey shortcuts use a longer format ("CTRL" instead of "C" and "SHIFT" instead of "S") which prevents the user from reading part the keybind text overlay on the buttons, this is an issue that only funcom can resolve as we do not have access to modifty that part of the user interface.
  • Another bug introduced with the July 17th patch is that any user modified (non-default) custom keybinding text overlays will not be visible on the buttons although the keyboard shortcuts still function correctly. To resolve this issue you can type the command line "/reloadui" in-game, however this brings up yet another bug related to the timer (casting) bars, see below for more info.
  • Yet another bug introduced by Funcom on the July 17th patch is that when the command line "/reloadui" is used the timer (casting) bars will reset to their default positing and will place themselves under the button panel graphics essentially becoming invisible, the only known solution is to exit the game and restart it.
Enjoy :-)

Maybe we could get a transparent one like the WerikUI, would that help? Atleast for the hotbars?
