    Windower 3.2 Released


    Windower 3.2. Yay. This fixes the SE patch problems, and adds a ton of new features.

    Within Windower, new features include alt/ctrl key modifiers for key binds, wait/pause within scripts and binds, console command aliases, working multi instancing, and a plugin system for greatly expanding both Windower and Final Fantasy. The launcher has been cleaned up significantly, and now has an associated launcher.ini file that lets you specify things such as which version of FFXI to load, the resolution, whether to use "true fullscreen" mode, and some other functions. The launcher also accepts via the commandline an alternate ini file to use, in case you want to create a batch file for loading say, the JP version at 1024x768.

    Included with Windower 3.2 are a couple plugins I've written, TParty, and BloodPace. TParty shows the TP and MP of everyone in your party and alliance. It also displays ability/spell timers based on your job/subjob, however this functionality is temporarily disabled due to the update, and soon I'll release a version with the timers enabled. Bloodpace is a plugin for summoners which displays the amount of time left until you can use a blood pact ability (regardless of whether an avatar is out).

    The plugin API and sample plugins will come soon, but probably after I take a nap. Tomorrow at the latest. This will include a sample plugin source, documentation, as well as the source to BloodPace. I hope that with this release of Windower some really cool plugins and functionality will be developed.

    Lastly, Windower's JPG/PNG support is written but temporarily disabled due to last minute licensing issues. An update with this enabled should be released soon. Also, we have plenty of bandwidth, but thanks for all the offers to mirror. I'd prefer WIndower to only be distributed from this server for security reasons.

    Edit: There was a slight problem with TParty. If your target HP % display is messed up, redownload Windower 3.2, a fixed TParty is now there. Also, note that you need the new version of FFXiMain.dll for the plugins to function.



    This is sexy!

    None of the included plugins count shadows, but it's possible to do... althrough tricky. There's no place in memory that contains the number of shadows left, so the only way to do it would be to parse the chat log.

    Being able to see your party's TP, though, is freaking awesome. Another unmentioned benefit is that it shows the hp% of your current target next to the HP bar.

    If you download the new windower, remember to use the new ffximain.dll/ffxi.dll, not the ones from before the patch. They won't work.

    Of course they did. That's what they spend all of their time doing, things like that. Losers in game and in life.

    Of course, not all of them. Just... most.

    That's from one of the beta versions of this windower. One of the developers posted that screenshot, and everyone flocked to the site asking OMFG WHERE CAN I GET THAT WINDOWAR!!!1?

    Then we waited for about three months, and it's finally been released.

    That percent bar right next to the mobs name is nice. Too bad it's going to ruin the fun of guessing what percent it is.
