FFXI UI 0.13 [Dec. 2nd, 2007|02:29 pm]
I updated my UI to work with the November 28th patch. All language UI dats are updated.

I fixed a few missing status icons from 0.12 and created icons for what I think are the light and dark arts status icons. I just colour-swapped the haste icon to make white and black versions. It's not my best work but hopefully it at least works. Note all dats are mostly untested. Let me know if there are problems.

You can download the DATs from filefront.com, or savefile.com.

To install the files, make sure you are fully logged out of FFXI and PlayOnline, then simply unzip the zip file to your PlayOnline\SquareEnix\Final Fantasy XI directory. Read the included readme file for instructions on how to install any of the new window tiles.

Note that I have included versions of the icon dat file that use SE's utsusemi icon and the different utsusemi icon. The default status icon dat file uses a different icon for the copy image status effect. If you prefer to use SE's icon, rename ROM\119\57-SE-utsusemi.DAT to ROM\119\57.DAT for the NA client, ROM\0\12-SE-utsusemi.DAT to ROM\0\12.DAT for the JP client, ROM\176\107-SE-utsusemi.DAT to ROM\176\107.DAT for the German client, or ROM\178\46-SE-utsusemi.DAT to ROM\178\46.DAT for the French client.

If you use the JP or EU client and prefer English language descriptions for the status icons then copy ROM\119\57.DAT to ROM\0\12.DAT for the JP client, ROM\119\57.DAT to ROM\176\107.DAT for the German client, or ROM\119\57.DAT to ROM\178\46.DAT for the French client.

DO NOT INSTALL WHILE LOGGED INTO FFXI or POL or the game may crash or behave strangely.

Read the included readme file for instructions on installing the window tiles.

If you want to see what the UI looks like, see this older lj entry for a screenshot: FFXI UI 0.10 (September 23, 2006)

I also updated my zip file containing the original versions of these dats from the November 28th patch. If you accidentally delete the original dat files and you want to have them back, you can get them from Filefront here: ffxi-ui-original-nov28-2007.zip.

thanks for the wonderful modification. I don't think I could stand ever going back to SE's default honestly, I had to endure it during an update period for a bit, and it drove me crazy to the point it was so odd that I didn't want to play. I had waited patiently instead for your new version (was around november).
I am curious what font are you using for this? I've found that it's really close to Trebuchet MS but when I try to duplicate it in photoshop it's a bit off. If it isn't too much trouble it'd be appreciated to know what font/font settings you used since I really am a bit taken aback with it and would like to use it ^^

Thanks for the icons and maps. They're great. As someone who has an idea of how the .dat files work, I'm wondering if you know anything about getting equipment information out of them. I'm very interested in creating a database of equipment so I can do SQL queries more sophisticated than what somepage's advanced item search can do. If I could get some information about the folder/file structure of the .dat files, I could write some VB in Access to put the information into a relational database.

Thank You


Thank you so much for continuing to update these UI mods.

I have used them for a LONG TIME now.

Honestly with out them I may stop playing.

If you have a paypal and want to list it I would donate a few USD because I enjoy the UI so much.

Thanks again.

In vista the text in the windows (bottom window, equip/item boxes, etc.) gets distorted for some reason. Is there a way to install all the other swaps plus the character names font(the main reaosn why I use this edit^^) without the changes to the text windows?
