The latest version of the CU GUI causes parentheses to disappear. Like if I set my mood to fanatical, it would appear in chat as fanatical and not (fanatical), and lots of vice versa. This is really annoying and I don't know what's causing it.

I think I have a third party fix for that parentheses issue now, just thought of it because I've been using autohotkey a lot.

Use this script:


Code:
#IfWinActive ahk_class (SwgClient|SwgClient_r)

(::Send (

)::Send )

#IfWinActive

Download AutoHotkey here, right click on the green box with a white H in it, in the taskbar, edit script, copy & paste the above, save, right click again, reload script and then give it a shot.

It SHOULD overwrite if it's an input fuckup from the mod, if it's a display issue, then I don't know, but you can use Kay's 'workaround' that she posted a few pages back.

I don't use/have the mod, so I can't test it.


Yes it's known, if you need to use/see brackets you'll have to uncheck Target Status in the installer, until I find away fix the target status without breaking the parentheses.

After all these years I still haven't found what really controls the target status, so I don't know how modify it without using tricks at the moment.


Edit:

Nevermind about the above, I found a fix. I looked at the .dds of the font files and all were missing the parentheses, lol, it was just a clear space, so in game, you'd only get a clear space. I then replaced them with working .dds files but then the mapping was screwed and font would appear cut off, with the correct .inc files for the UI, I seem to have fixed it.

[Download link removed]

Just slap both folders into your SWGEmu directory and that's it! I'll prompt for an overwrite, just say yes. Fix works for both the NGE and CU version.

Davin or Uli, if you guys see this, could you edit Kay's OP and post it in?


To show the difference:


If there are any other issues with it, let me know.

Hmm I see why she might have removed it, I just checked and in game, when you select someone, their title is in white, but with blue parenthesizes with the 'fix'. Without it, you don't have any parenthesizes around the title, but lose parenthesize completely.


Edit 2:

Alright I seem to have found a hotfix to have parentheses working in chat but also having them be invisible on titles and afk/lfg.

Used Kay's trick for the font that's used on players and NPCs, but still haven't found how to actually disable them all together for the titles.

New download link is found here

Since the fix is based on font size, there are 2 issues right now, if you change font sizes:

1.) You can't have the "Default Chat Box Font Size" on the third setting (See these screenshot: Visible - Invisible), anything before or after is fine.
2.) "Chat Bubble Font Size" needs to be kept outside of the 0.40-0.99 range (See these screenshots: Minimum - Maximum)
3.) "Object Name Font Size" has to stay in the range of 0.80-0.85 (See these screenshots: With working size - Outside of working size)

Oh, thanks man! :D

But pff, of course I only get a promotion because of laziness, not because you wuv me! :p

I know, I saw a comment once again about it and thought, what the heck, I'll check it out and then that led me down a path to dig further into it after a couple quick successes. I miss modding so much, this fueled it even moar.

Oh well, perhaps I'll start PP werk soon again, even though I'm still busy. :(

Edit: Hmm, do I have editing rights? Can't find the option for it, maybe I'm just blind! I see the ModCP but it's only user related.

Hmm, it seems there are no moderators assigned to the forums so I made you a SUPER MOD INSTEAD! How about that for wuv? :p Plus now your name is all purple, but I can change that if it bothers you lol

Yeah I started a new job this summer so I've had barely any time, just been watching the cool stuff people have been working on and being jealous... but yes, do work on PP! :D

You made me super mod AND I have a purple name? How can I ever repay so much wuv?! :D Thanks!

Of to Mod'ing I go, lol.

I've been all over the place this year, Murrica, 3 cities in Germany, Turkey atm, prob going back to Germany soon, next year sometime the US again, ahh what an adventure, lol. Got another deadline for Feb 1st, so I'll be busy, if all goes well I'll have absolute time until September or so then, that's when I'll definitely mod big time, unless life throws a brick at me.

Speaking of modding, I was curious about some stuff today and noodled around a bit, lo and behold I figured the DoF out that, that guy used, from Modsource, the one Kay and I were hunting.


But then...



What a dipshit, he used ENB's DoF that totally bugs out and fucks everything over, that's why he never showed a UI in the screenshot, note that with the UI it's actually blured, it'll blur different things based on camera position too, but it's interesting non the less.

No idea why I never tried messing with ENB to check if he used that or not, coulda saved a week of slaving last year.

Gonna be using ENB+SweetFX to fix color balance and all that fun stuff though, still gotta figure both out though.

Might work on a straightforward sound overhaul (replacing/modifying, no audio editing for now) and probably expand the music too, over the next few months, no idea how much time I'll invest, I got loads to do. For the music, I got ideas for two versions, one being purely SW Music, the other being mixed with other stuff, but in a tasteful, non obvious kinda way, stuff that fits but isn't recognized.

Also, do you happen to have the wiki page on .iff's? I forgot what's on it, it's awful how there isn't a general editor for it besides treExplorer.

Hi Timbab

Do you still have a link to your fixed version in EDIT 2? It's no biggie but I would like to use this to replace brackets but the link on your original post seems to be dead?

I edited Kay's OP and it's in the post you quoted. :p

But here you go:

https://mega.co.nz/#!owZgBaBS!PxZ1PRPxW8J8CAIThUvMWAz-gJwwOFU6WZ8nosglMcU

Do you want to use this to create a new bracket replacement?

They are .dds files, you simply need to edit them in like GIMP or Photoshop. Hop on irc, if you need help.

Lol...thanks Timbab it's my bad, at work and crappy IE will not work with your Mega download link. It's saying I need to download Chrome so I'll need to do it from home this evening. Initially I just want to have parentheses working in chat but also having them be invisible on titles and afk/lfg.

I might start to have a play with the files when I have some spare time, its just between re-awakening my love of SWG plus getting itchy modding feet is already giving my wife nightmares about being an SWG widow once again ha ha ha :)

Haha, I can imagine.

That itch to mod started a month ago, I don't really have time but now I'm working on creating mod tools, damn my brain.

Sorry about Mega, I happened to have an account when I started uploading stuff, I should switch to Dropbox, it's more user friendly.

Does this mod still work with the most recent SWGemu? It's been a while since I've used it but I remember runnin into crashing issues last time. Any info would be great.

Nothing's changed Emu wise, I don't see why this shouldn't work.

Next time you crash, let me know what you did and I'll try to figure it out, since Kay ain't here.

Or copy your crash log here.
