Community - AriensGUI Panel - script package download

Postby Ukblizzard » Sun Mar 08, 2009 11:53 am

I guess you wonder how a download can help your everyday life on Rubi-Ka, so here is a quick rundown of some of the features that you can access with AriensGUI Panel at the click of a button:

* Enable/Disable inspect
* Enable/Disable social tab
* Enable/Disable Auto AFK
* Lock/Unlock hotbars
* See if anyone of profession X is near
* Who buffs what skills & attributes
* Add someone to your friends list
* Clear the screen for screenshots
* Open windows with no screen-cluttering
* Talk like a girl, atrox or man
* Dance the funky dance - endlessly

Sure, you have always been able to do all this if you dug through menus and sub-menus, and that was why Ariensky made this tool: To have it all in one convenient place, no need to dig through F10 options for things.

I have been trying it out this morning, and it is a lot of fun as well as being really helpful!! It is so simple to install, basically all you have to do is download the file and unzip it into your scripts folder .. then ingame type /apanel and whoosh its all there.

If you want to give it a go you can download it from here : http://www.phuncom.com/Scripts/downloads.html

Why not leave some feedback in this thread too if you try it out!

Astonishingly lot of options to play with. An excellent tool! The only minor grief I have with it are the spelling errors, but otherwise does not detract from its functionality.

You are very welcomed to send me a tell (RK1) with any errors and suggestions, or put them here, and I will fix it right away :)

Kind Regards

I'm on RK2 so here goes:

Who buffs what:
Spelling
1. Intellegence - Intelligence
2. Wrangeler - Wrangler
3. nanoes - nanos <- this error also found elsewhere

Format issues
1. No links to Agility and Sense buffs?

Delag options:
Can't find option <CharViewDistance>.
Can't find option <GroundQuality>.
Can't find option <GroundFullQualityRadius>.

I seem to always get these errors for all the Delag options. Perhaps it has something to do with a custom GUI skin? I'm using Notum Dovvetech.

Format issues in main window:
1. Might wanna put a warning - "Opens in new browser window" after (Useful Internet links). Also for other links that will open browser window (e.g. Can you spot Rubi-Ka?)
2. Missing icon for RP channels (for me at least...apparently it works on your comp in your screenshots) -
Code: Select all
<img src=tdb://id:GFX_GUI_SKILL_RP_BACKGROUND>

shows up in my window instead of the icon.

Zanthyna dances:
1. dance 2 - outputs "/AriensGUI\ZanDance\AriensGUI\ZanDance\dance1" in chat window.


Hope this helps!

Intellegence: Total matches: 24
Wrangeler: Total matches: 16
nanoes: Total matches: 4

All fixed :)

The formatting is as follows: If only one profession has buffs for a skill, it does not get a separate window, then you have to look it up under the profession.

"There are separate windows for skills multiple professions can boost."
is how it is put in the Tips for the "who buffs what" section.

There are no other buffs for Sense than the Agent one
and the non-Agent Agility buffs are self only.

The "Who buffs what" only takes nanos you can get from others into consideration.
It meant to be a tool to easily look up buffs you can get from other people, assuming that people knows the buffs of there own profession.
One day I might include a separate list for self-only buffs, maybe not :)

When only one profession can buff a skill, you can look it up in the list of that profession's buffs. There should be a link to the right of the skill-name.

Also if the buffs do not stack, there (currently) is no separate window for it.

I did it this way to have less work and less information being in two places rather than one. Also a skill with green name hints that you only need to go to one profession to get that skill buffed (except for nanoskills where MP and Trader buffs stack)

I have put Agility up as the first buff on the Agent list, with Sense being right after to make them more visible though.

These are taken directly from
Anarchy Online\cd_image\gui\default\OptionPanel\Root.xml

If you have chosen to modify your client, there are two options for me:
make alternate script versions for the custom GUIs myself
or let it be up to those using it to modify it them selfs.

The easiest thing for you right now is to change it, here is how:
Anarchy Online\Scripts\AriensGUI\Scripts
contains all the scripts the panel runs

the DeLag scripts all start with DeLag in there names
DeLagNormal.aa
DeLagRaid.aa
DeLagAIRaid.aa
DeLagPvP.aa

remember Screenshot.aa also

open those with notepad and remove the lines with
/option CharViewDistance
/option GroundQuality
/option GroundFullQualityRadius

when you have changed that make a backup of those files, as they will be replaced on next update.

AO developers were smart, if you install a custom GUI, but the client asks for a graphics not included in the custom GUI, it will look in the default one.
At least that is what the documentation I have is saying.

meaning: the client looks for an icon, the first place it looks is in your custom GUI, the second place it looks is in the default GUI.

if you have deleted the default.. then you will get that error.
I do not know why some recommend that you delete the default GUI

I have thought about making a panel without icons for custom GUI users.
But from the data I have only ~5% has a custom GUI
and I do not know what graphics they have and which they do not have.
Installing several GUIs is too much work for me, so I decided to rely on feedback for that.

the RP image is the only one that is missing?
if ti is only that, I can change it.

Please come with feedback on any other images looking weird.

that one is tricky.. it depends on your local browser settings if it opens in a new window or tab..
I have put a notice saying
"These link will open in your internetbrowser"

Can you spot Rubi-Ka? - YouTube movie
:)

I have not changed it in the popup you can send to others though, as that one is at the 1kb limit, so no further text can be added..
I hope "Links to useful internet pages" is enough to hint that they will open webpages.

Fixed, it was used to ilustrate that dance2's original name was dance1
but I had forgotten that 0% shows the path as well as the filename, that is now fixed, to not display that information anymore.

1. That's fine with the Agi/Sen buffs. I just thought for uniformity's sake it should also be linked. No biggie. :)

2. There's no necessity to modify your script to accommodate the the various custom GUIs out there. You'll lose your sanity! Your workaround (deleting those lines) seem to be too much hassle for me. I think I'll stick with it; it just outputs 3 extra lines in my chat window anyway. Doesn't bother me much.

3. I actually just renamed my default GUI folder. But to answer your question, yeah just that icon is missing. Others appear to be fine.

4. I was hoping you'd group links that'll open the browser (regardless whether new window/tab) so I don't inadvertently click on one of them and my game alt+tabs to the browser. Or a more visible warning (in CAPS or bold red? Lol...) would suffice. ^^

Once again, great work on the script!

3) I removed the icon and typed out "Roleplaying" instead

4) Links are gathered in groups now.
One at useful internet links and one under roleplaying.

Thank you for the feedback.
I have AO running in windowed mode and 98% of the time have my internet browser running by the side. It is good to get input from users with other setups.

Kind Regards
Ariensky

I see music can be turned off, how about sound off? sometimes we take breaks but won't log, would be nice to watch youtube or hear itunes without the AO sound on.

Sure, I can include that in the next version.
Everything in the F10 options panel and a bit more can be changed :)
The only thing is that it takes up space in the already long panel.

There are two ways to do it, so I will think a bit over how to do it most logically.
as always: thank you for the feedback.

Now I would like your input on (maybe?) one of the coming features of the panel: Playing sounds in AO

Kind Regards
