Original DAT Files Needed [Mar. 10th, 2008|10:46 pm]
brandson
I hear FFXI was patched today. I cancelled my account a few months ago so I have no access to source DAT files anymore. If someone wants to carry on keeping the UI mods working that would be awesome. If not, I could get to it at some point this week but I'll need someone to send me the following original (unmodified) DAT files from today's patch:

ROM\0\12.DAT status icons (JP)
ROM\91\15.DAT user interface (JP)
ROM\119\51.DAT user interface (NA)
ROM\119\57.DAT status icons (NA)
ROM\176\75.DAT user interface (German)
ROM\176\107.DAT status icons (German)
ROM\178\14.DAT user interface (French)
ROM\178\46.DAT status icons (French)

Zip up those files and upload them somewhere for me to grab then post the download link for me to get them. If someone can do that for me, then I'll see about getting the DATs updated on Thursday (the next day when I'll have a few free hours at night). Thanks.

UI Fine, but not Icons

It seems that the UI is fine after this update (The UI fonts stayed the same post update, which is a first). However, there are some new abilities and as such, the icons got replaced.

Thanks as always Brandson for your hard work, even when you don't play anymore.

Would be nice to have an updated version of the icons, altho, SE's new Light/Dark Arts icons and Sublimation and Addenium icons are rather good, might want to keep them

Icons

Hello, I'm french. ^^

Since 2006, I'm updating myself my ui and icons because I did not want to have to rely on Brandson each update but I love what you've done. ^^

If you want to see how they look like you can take them here (not working with JP version but may add for the future, till now i was doing this for myself so...) :

Oh and Brandson, I would be happy to know what you're using exactly, or even continue your work. :)

Emiko.

Same issue still occur the same ;x
Whenever you use new abilities such as sekkanoki or war ability.
You get a battlefield icon "Debug:Please report" with both your ui fonts as well as Brandson's UI fonts.

You should not be using an ancient icons dat when SE introduce new abitilies, new icons and such if you don't want to encounter errors and weird things like that.

I didn't read your problem correctly, I'm sorry.

With Brandson's Icons, it is normal you get that icon with this description for Sekkanoki because he didn't uploader his new icon mod.

With mine, I can't understand why you're still getting the "Debug" thing, what are you getting with SE icons ? Are you sure you are copying the DATs correctly ? If you use a NA version, just copy the 119\57.DAT in your 0\119\ folder.

I didn't touch Sekkanoki's icon so it seems a bit weird to me, and I just verified this too. :o

Just wondering if this is still in the works, did anyone get you the dat files? I really enjoy your GUI and hope to see it soon :) Thanks, Katoke Odin.

Re: Whats going on?

I anticipated being able to update the UI, but I've had exactly zero free time of any kind since the patch came out. My life is a lot busier now than it used to be.

I believe Emiko has been updating the UI since the patch and I recommend you use her dat files from now on if you want to have an updated UI. See some of her comments on my Livejournal for more info. I'll update my first post with a link to her page at some point too.
