FFXI UI 0.10 [Sep. 23rd, 2006|09:02 pm]
brandson
I've updated my UI DATs for FFXI. All that has changed is that I have created and included a new font for the chat log to match my font that is used everywhere else in the UI. Thanks to cdreamworld for some inspiration as we were both working on very similar fonts at the same time.

Here's a screenshot of what it all looks like:



You can download the DATs from filefront.com, filefactory.com, savefile.com, orbitfiles.com, or rapidshare.de

Great work! Thank you!

I wondering type on other languages is depends of font or not? It is possible to integrate font what support cyrillic letters for example.

In theory, you could change the font to make other letters appear as Cyrillic or any other language, but it would only be visible to you, not everyone else. But if you use the Japanese IME, it contains all the Cyrillic Alphabet already under the きごう symbols.

If others make same changes do they able to see it?

Yes, but in this case cyrillic symbols does not correspond letters on my keyboard ;;

Using just the chat font

I downloaded the UI changes a while ago and tried them. While they were very well produced, I ended up preferring the original UI, and went back to that.

However, I think the new chat log font is stunningly gorgeous. It seems that all the UI changes are bundled up in one .DAT file; is it possible to just extract the chat log font and insert that into the stock UI?

Re: Using just the chat font

Yes, you can do that with a program called ChangeTex. I've written up where to get it and how to use it here. If you're using the NA client, open up my ROM\119\51.DAT in ChangeTex and extract the first texture in the list, called "moji". Then open up the original ROM\119\51.DAT click on moji, and import the texture you just saved previously.

If you're using the JP client, the process is the same but the file is different. The JP interface textures are in ROM\91\15.DAT.

Re: Using just the chat font

Excuse me. ^^; I'm also wanting to do something like this, but I wish to keep JUST the names over the character/mobs as the old font. I love everything about your interface, except for the fact that it made it just slightly harder for me to see mob/character names over long distances. Could you tell me what line(s) I would have to change, to keep old character/mob fonts, but still change the menu/chat log/etc? Is this even possible, or is the chat log as far as I can change things and still keep the old character/mob name font?

For those that keep asking for original chat text ~

ROM\119\51.dat -- all the cool things in UI 0.10a but I like to use the default chat text ^^ Just changed out the moji dds, just as Brandson said and works perfect. Thx once again :)

http://files.filefront.com/rom_119_51DAT/;6361217;;/fileinfo.html

This is working as of 15 Dec 2006. Back up your originals.

Something odd

Ok when i install ur new .dat files, when i login to my char FFXI crashes on me. Now i find this odd because it doesnt do it as soon as the game starts up it only happens about 10 seconds after i log in with my char, and as soon as i put the original dats back on the game works fine. is anyone else having this problem ?? and how cant this b resolved ??

Re: Something odd

Hey Brandson, i love the work you do and want to thank you tremendously for your work. There is 1 big favor i have to ask you though ; ;. You know how you had the black buttons 51.dat for the older version, i was wondering if you could make 1 for 1.0b as well. I love that UI to death and will greatly apperciate if you are able to make it.

hi, i have a problem......

heres the deal, is there anywhere i can go to download and replace all modded .dat files with all the origionals.... since i didnt think about replacing them.... or can anyone actually put something on FileFront for me to download, such as a zip or .rar file in order to gain all the origional .dat files again. I also dont have disks anymore... except the Aht Uhrgan expansion, so thats out of the question atm... send me email or something at xnpio69@hotmail.com, or leave me message here kk! thanks!

I get a blue screen with a string of codes and all I have time to see is that it says begining dump of physicall memory and this is all after a fresh install of windows as well. So i replaced the .dat files with the orginals and still have the same problem. ANyone have any ideas Im lost? Feel free to email me at WpnzTroop94@yahoo.com

Taking requests?

I was wondering if you could actually take a request, I had a few ideas but I don't have the technical know-how. Would you be up for it?

Yeah...

Ive had a bit of a problem with this, after copying the files over, when my character loads up to play the game crashes, i can see the ui changes have been made as they are present in the menus before hand, but i crash as soon as i am logged into the game.
