Improved Hotbars

Unread post by Calantyr » Wed Jul 25, 2018 5:57 am

Hi, how on earth do I get additional hotbars to work? I used to have them, but after a reinstall I can't get them to work.

Specifically I'm trying to get the 12-slot version of https://neverwintervault.org/project/nw ... tbar-soz-0 to work, but only the vanilla hotbar will show.

You have to place the files in the right place in nwn2 documents dir... Where are you putting them?

Also, if you need to activate quickbars through the options, you need to restart the game before those can be used.

Also check out mine which I made thanks to grymhylde's pointers a few ages ago

If it's good looking to you (why would it be unless you have an enormous resolution)...

Fixed it. It was because It was in the override directory, but not within it's own sub-directory within the override directory.
Because that makes sense.

Ermmm, so generally, custom UI changes should go in the custom UI folder (documents/nwn2/ui/custom), not the override. Yes, it "works" in the override sometimes; but just a thing to keep in mind in the future.

Aha! Thanks. I'll try to remember for the next time this inevitably happens.
