The bar has been pushed down, or something, while my brains are turned to mush! Hopefully I never have to write that again. And I was planning on writing the California and NY bars next year too... All that FUN crammed into one year is gonna be hawt.

FFXI UI 0.11a [Jun. 5th, 2007|05:13 pm]
brandson
I updated my UI to work with the June 5 patch. All language UI dats are updated. Even though I'm busy studying, I decided to update this now so I don't have to worry about it. It didn't take long anyway. Note all dats are 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 this time 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.

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 June 5th 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-jun5-2007.zip.

UI for June 5 Patch [Jun. 4th, 2007|11:19 pm]
brandson
I write part 2 of the bar exam on Thursday (part 1 was last week) and I am essentially spending all day every day preparing for it. If SE breaks my UI tomorrow, I don't know if I'll have time to make an update right away this time, but I will fix it sooner or later (Thursday night at the latest).

Brandson Predicts the Future? [Apr. 25th, 2007|04:00 pm]
brandson
On April 11th, I posted a comment on a discussion on Engadget about how cellphone makers aren't trying hard enough to innovate. In that post I mentioned how too many buttons is a problem on phones that can do more than make calls. In particular I said:

"I don't need tons of buttons, sliders, flips, etc. on my phone. Just use the touchscreen for everything except maybe add some volume or mute/pause buttons on the side."

Then just 2 days ago, Meizu revealed an updated version of its M8 phone:



Notice they modified the button layout in exactly the way I described in my Engadget post. The old design did not have a mute/pause button.

Unless having a dual-purpose mute/pause button is a common thing, Meizu now borrows ideas from Apple AND Brandson! Note to Meizu: I will happily accept a free M8 as payment for more brilliant (and not-so-brilliant) product ideas.

Music Break! [Apr. 11th, 2007|02:40 am]
brandson
Taking a break from studying for a corporate tax exam to bring you a link to my favourite music performance ever: Mediterranean Sundance from the album Friday Night In San Francisco.

Too bad it cuts out about halfway through the song, but still great to watch. You can probably find the CD for like $5 now too. So awesome.

FFXI UI 0.11 [Mar. 10th, 2007|11:52 pm]
brandson
I updated my UI again to add support for other languages. The status icons should display in Japanese on the Japanese client, German on the German client, and French on the French client. The rest of the UI should also work just fine on all clients now.

I also cleaned up my font with respect to some German and French characters and restored the correct XP Dedication status icon (I missed it in 0.10c). If you don't care about any of that, then you can continue to use 0.10c just fine. If you use a version older than 0.10c then the game will likely crash as soon as you gain a status effect. Please let me know if you notice any problems with the update.

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 this time I have included versions of the icon dat file that use SE's utsusemi icon and the different utsusemi icon.

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.
