DefaultHotbar by Aedani




This addon adds a drag and drop Hotbar to the UI. Items on the Hotbar can be triggered via keyboard shortcuts. See the second post for instructions.

Download from SecretUI or Curse

Installation:
Unpack the .zip archive into <your TSW folder>\Data\Gui\Customized\ folder. You should end up with the following files at a minimum (any other files are not required for the addon to work correctly):
• \Data\Gui\Customized \Flash\Hotbar\Hotbar.swf
• \Data\Gui\Customized \Flash\Hotbar\LoginPrefs.xml
• \Data\Gui\Customized \Flash\Hotbar\Modules.xml
If the game is running, you'll need to restart it.

Uninstallation:
Delete the \Data\Gui\Customized\Flash\Hotbar folder.

Changes:
1.0.3
* Updated to latest Funcom source.
* Changed override triggers to Save Movie instead of Print Position, as the latter have proven to be useful during world events.

1.0.2
* No actual changes - just recompiled against the latest FUNCOM sources. This apparently fixes issues with /reloadui and pin buttons.

1.0.1
* Fixed Hotbar not updating correctly after zoning.

1.0
* Initial release.

CONFIGURING THE HOTBAR

1. Open the controls menu, locate the following items, and change them to the values listed below.
Code:
      Save Video (Mov)                    ALT
      Save Video (Quicktime)              SHIFT
      Offensive Target Self               F1
      Target Group Member 2               F2
      Target Group Member 3               F3
      Target Group Member 4               F4
      Target Group Member 5               F5
      Target Group Member 6               F6
2. Find "Exit Game" and set it to anything that isn't a combination of the above values (something like CTRL+SHIFT+F12 will work).

3. Find the inventory bag with the name "Hotbar" and drag some items into it. Any item that can be activated will work - potions, quest items, Deathless skills, gear, etc., are all acceptable.

4. Activate items on the hotbar by pressing the keys listed in the corresponding square on the image below.




TROUBLESHOOTING

Problem: I don't have an inventory bag named "Hotbar".
Solution: If you already have 20 bags, the initial creation will fail and you will see a message in the FIFO area. You will need to either delete at least one bag or rename one of your existing bags to "Hotbar" and then reload the UI for the addon to work.


Problem: I've configured my targeting keys the way I like them already.
Solution: Assign F1-F6 (or the keys of your choice) to the secondary column.


Problem: I'm pressing a hotkey, but something else is happening.
Solution: Make sure that another control isn't assigned to the combination you're pressing. For example, by default, "Exit Game" is assigned to ALT-F4, which overlaps the hotkey for the fourth item on the second row.


Problem: I want my Hotbar to be vertical rather than horizontal.
Solution: This is perfectly fine. Just resize the Hotbar window (drag from the bottom right corner). When oriented vertically, the keys for rows and columns swap. The left column is SHIFT, the middle is ALT, and the right is ALT+SHIFT.


Problem: I'm getting a message about the Hotbar's number of rows or columns.
Solution: The Hotbar must be resized to be either 1x6, 2x6, 3x6, 6x1, 6x2, or 6x3. If it is not one of those sizes, then a message will display on screen when you try to activate a shortcut.


Problem: I want to use something other than ALT and SHIFT.
Solution: Reassign the "Save Video (Mov)" and "Save Video (Quicktime)" controls to the keys you want to use. Be sure to check that no other controls are assigned to combinations of your chosen keys and the targeting keys.


Problem: I'm trying to use two items, one after the other, but the second one is targeting a team member instead.
Solution: To use multiple items in quick succession, you must release the ALT and SHIFT keys before hitting the new hotkey. This is simply due to the way the keyboard is read in The Secret World, and cannot currently be avoided.


Problem: If I press SHIFT and ALT, then release ALT and hit a targeting key, the wrong item is used.
Solution: This is also caused by the keyboard reading in The Secret World. To avoid this issue, always release both SHIFT and ALT if you've hit one that you did not intend to press. Alternatively, do not put items on the third row.

Great! The instructions were a bit confusing but eventually figured it out, really great for pots. Thanks for the effort.

I've updated the instructions to simplify them significantly. Hopefully this version is less daunting than the previous.
