Please Note... My Websites are hosted on FREE SPACE and do have PopUp Adds that are posted by the Server. Use AddBlock Plus (IE & FireFox) This should Block all Adds & you won't see them.

Thank You, AP.

ADDED an extra Folder in the Download Area that Includes (Instructions & an Example File) for a Default Screen layout that includes Game Macros for all your Char's.
This file "Example Provided" on the Website or your "Own File" once setup will contain ALL Window Layouts, Game Macros etc)
It can be used as a master Template then all you have to do for each chr is setup Styles/Spells that are only used on said Char.

# Up & Comming  CHANGES ...

Graphic Updates...
Graphics will be made sharper for clarity on Hi-Res Systems.
Info Window & Interaction WIndows will have a font change to make them more easily readable again for Hi-Res Systems.

   There may be a folder created "ALTERNATE_Files", where both a copy of the Large Font & Small Font Components will reside. Files there can be copied into the Main Custom Folder by the User. With certain Windows the way the code works resizable fonts can't always be used and this has to be pre-selected when designing the window components.
Please Note ... Items in the ALTERNATE_Files Folder may not always be upto date, and may cause DAoC to Crash, (Use at own risk & always Back up Files from the Main UI that you replace with files from the ALTERNATE_Files Folder). The Main UI Files are always Top Priority for Update's.

Healer Helper...
The Healer Helper will have a proper Hight-Light System implimented for easier player selection within a group. (Curent Target will have a border and be highlighted)

Other Changes...
There will be more Tweaks to the Code & Graphics for full Optimization of the UI so that it runs more smoothly for players on a slower Connection and/or PC.
