    Icon3 [AUI] Alternate Ui's v1.20 "GOLD EDITION" // compatible with TATW2.1 and FROME2.0 // Preview of new UI's at the end of page 66





    In the far lands of Middle-Earth, something has changed...
    Experience a new game while playing Third Age mod for Kingdoms M2TW, with completly new and immersive User Interfaces!


    What it does ?
    There is 1 new UI per faction, including additionnal factions from FROME and VOA.
    As the game engine normally does not allow this (1 UI = 1 culture and 1 culture = several factions), a launcher will copy the needed files before you start a new campaign with the faction you want to play.

    Note that we also provide generic UI's that replace the current ones from TATW, and that avoids you to use the launcher once installed.

    Compatibility note:
    The submod is compatible with TATW 2.1 (and 3.1 see fix below) and previous versions, all versions of FROME and VOA, as well as any other submod that does not add any new faction (or alter the faction symbols) to the mod TATW.

    Additional note:
    The submod is save game compatible, this means it can be installed at any time and effects will have immediate effect in game; no need to re-start a new campaign to enjoy the changes.

    Important note for Vista users:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    If you are using Vista and have modified the game, you will notice that your changes have not taken effect. This is because of the so-called Virtualstore. To make your changes have effect you go to:
    C:\Users\Your name\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files and delete the folder called SEGA, this is where your M2:TW folder is.

    Attention!
    Note that once you get to your User folder, you have to type AppData, as it is hidden and not in the list.

    "Bill's revenge"
    You can also, to prevent VirtualStore problems, install M2:TW in an other folder.
    The only problem with this is that some mods can't find the installation of M2:TW. This way they can't install the mod.

    Turn off/disable the UAC.
    On a single person who cares pc, it's a layer of security not needed and a pain to gamers. - irishron


    IMPORTANT NOTE FOR 3.1:

    Change every this line

    Code:
    start kingdoms.exe @mods\Third_Age\TATW.cfg

    Great start mate. Just a question, can the ui be faction unique?

    Thanks mate

    Answer is no (yeah sadly), but i plan to make a launcher as i did for Call of Warhammer

    This way you can have 1 culture = 1 ui.
    This works very smoothly, but requires a small human action

    I explain everything in this thread: EFI for Call of Warhammer


    EDIT: here's an extract for the lazy
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    HOW IT WORKS ?:
    Launch the EFI.bat instead of Warhammer.bat, then select a group of factions you want to play, then select the faction itself. The menu will copy the necessary files to get the interface corresponding to your choice then it will automatically launch COWH. You can also launch COWH directly from here So if you don't want to change the factions interface, then you can launch COWH directly without making any change, from EFI.bat

    From this menu you can also get all the interfaces in just one move (see below)

    HOW IT WORKS IN DETAILS:

    Here is the main menu:

    Pick one:
    1. Elves
    2. Empire/Sylvania
    3. Chaos
    4. Goblinoids
    ===============
    5. START Call of Warhammer
    6. Install all EFI files
    7. Restore vanilla files
    7. EXIT
    Hit a number [1-8] and press enter.
    [1-8]
    Now if you press (6) it will install all default files in all the right folders and backup the vanilla files
    (defaults -> elves = high elves, chaos = generic chaos, empire = generic empire, goblinoids = orcs, kislev = kislev and dwarves = dwarves)

    If you press (7), the vanilla files are restored --->

    E.g. if you select Elves for example, you can easily change High Elves into Dark Elves

    One of the sub-menues:

    Pick one:
    1. High Elves
    2. Dark Elves
    ===============
    3. Back
    Hit a number [1-3] and press enter.
    [1-3]
    And so on.

    This looks very interesting. I just hope you're not going to overdo it the way -IMHO- it is in CoW (I find the UI in that mod way too overloaded to be easy on the eyes for long periods of time).

    I'll keep an eye on this.

    Thanks guys.

    I agree 100% that in CoWh the ui's are a bit too overloaded (as a defense i was a starter ui maker and well... i was happy to just put the more details in as possible ), also the Warhammer universe is a bit blinky too, just look at the units. Well i am not going to advocate CoWh's stuff here, but i plan to do something much more classic here. Very clear look no overload.

    Maybe one day i will remake the CoWh ui's the same way (by removing a bit some details), thanks for noticing this

    Looks great, brother. + rep!

    BTW: Are you also releasing for RR/RC? Or is new UI compatible with any (sub) mod? I'm not sure, for I never modded UI.

    Awesome to see you working on TATW now! Really looking forward to your UI's, if they're anything like in Stainless Steel it will improve gameplay and immersion a lot! I can tell from experience

    Kudos mate, hope you have some ready when 1.5 is released (not to push, mind you... Take it easy, it looks great so far )
