Excellent work. I'm now using multiple products by you and I must say I appreciate your work and the quality you put into your designs.

With regard to Bevy'o Bars, I noticed 2 bugs; both of which I've been able to work around.

1) I am using 2 bars right now and sometimes when I drag a skill from my skillbook to an empty slot in bar 2 (say it is a 2x2, I put it in the bottom left box)... the skill properly shows up in bar 2; but whatever I had in the same spot in bar 1 disappears (so if bar 1 is a 2x2, then the bottom left slot is now empty). I've even gone back and forth on this for a bit when adding the skill that got lost in bar 1 back to bar 1; then the same slot in bar 2 gets cleared again. I worked around it by putting the skill into a slot that is empty in both bars, then moving it within that same bar to the spot I want it in.

2) I can't clear a slot easily. So lets say I put a skill in the bar and I no longer want it there at all. For the normal Turbine bars I would just drag that skill off the bar and drop it anywhere in the open space (middle of the screen). If I do that with a skill on Bevy'O Bars, it still shows up. I've had to drag the skill from a BevyBar to my Turbine quickslot; this removes it from BevyBar. Then I'm able to clear the skill completely by removing it from the Turbine bar.

The second is no big deal because that's an easy workaround; but the first is problematic sometimes and quite annoying.

Opinion wanted;

As I add more options to the option screen the dialogue is going to get bigger.

I dislike its size now, so am going to break it up into tabs. The opinion I am after is; do people think a dialogue half the width, or half the height would be better. ie a thin box or a wide box? I can't decide and there are BIG differences!

All you can have is different bars per character at the moment - this will upset some people which is why I have profiles in my mind. And yes, the default Turbine ones are still there.

I intend to use 1-5 and f1-f5 as Turbine quickslots and have everything else on colour-coded bevy bars WHEN THEY FINALLY LET US...

*slinks off into a corner moaning to himself about codemasters "I mean... it's like saying Christmas will be late this year..."*

EDIT:

I can confirm this appears to work just fine. I downloaded the US client to test - and it seems good.

By the way... if you don't like Bevy o' bars may I recommend TonicBars by NuclearTonic? We have had different perspectives on what to do with Quickslot bars and have produced very different plugins. D.H1cks also did a good one, but it looks like hasn't uploaded it here yet.

And... If anyone has any feature requests please make them here and I will give it a think. What I am going to avoid is any "Easy Mode" changes. I am beginning to think that bars only appearing on certain buffs/debuffs falls into that category - it would turn the game into one almighty whack-a-mole contest. Thoughts?

Yes, its annoying, hope they will manage early next week.

2) IF I have 2 characters and want to have different setups for those characters (different bars), is this possible)

>Save is currently per character. I am thinking of introducing profiles, but >this is not a priority for me.

Is this a "Yes", means I can have different bars on different characters?

3) Which of the quickslots can be connected to shortcuts and how?

>If you mean keyboard shortcuts then, sadly, none. Turbine don't let us >keybind yet.

Yeah, ment keyboard shortcuts (like 1 - 0). The "original" bars will still exist and I can use keyboard shortcuts and for the additional ones not? Would be stll fine.

I am too. Annoying, isn't it? COME ON CODEMASTERS!

It saves on unload, so the only way it will not save is if your system crashes.

Save is currently per character. I am thinking of introducing profiles, but this is not a priority for me.

If you mean keyboard shortcuts then, sadly, none. Turbine don't let us keybind yet.

Yup, just copy the PluginData folder - once it exists of course!
