Here's an updated version of Zeremus:Breathe for Everquest: The Buried Sea. This package is to be considered a complete UI, Not just an update. First and foremost, I fixxed the problems with the Powersource/Ammo/Inv slots caused by SoE's changes to the EQ Types. Next I went to work fixxing the short duration buff window. I saw a newer buff window by Anatis that is more see through, and has numbers, and in my view is more in-line with the "Breathe" concept the original author had. From the Anatis Horizontal 25 Buff Edge (Number / Labels) window found at http://www.eqinterface.com/downloads/fileinfo.php?id=4095, I was able to make a new short duration buff window. Once TBS came out I updated it to be compatible with the additional slots.
Anatis also came out with a player/group window very similar to Zeremus's called "Extreme Group Window w. Rest Gauge (TSS)",(which can be found at http://www.eqinterface.com/downloads/fileinfo.php?id=5012. From this window I was able to add in the group leadership AA xp, raid leadership AA xp, and probably the combate stae stuff as well. I put a real endurance bar in too with numbers and color coded like the mana and hp's, which I hope should better appeal to the pure melee types.
Once again, I just want to say that I can't take credit for this work, it's mostly all originally created by other people. I just rape and pillage whatever I can to help keep Zeremus:Breathe going for folks like me who still use it. It is my sincere hope that no one is offended by my work for using thiers, and I also hope that my efforts have the blessings of Zeremus, and the EQInterface staff. I also want to say that the experience of editing these windows and sifting through other peoples code, cutting and pasting stuff, figuring out all these numbers and X, Y blah blah has actually been pretty fun! I am always open to suggestions and recommendations too. Post here
if you have any problems or anything.
Special thx to Zeremus, Feebwin, Gena, Drakkah, and Anatis, the sources for this work. I'm not original enough to make anything of my own, lol.
I hope you enjoy

1. Download the updated version of Zeremus Windows: Breathe and extract it into your main EQ directory.
2. Make a backup of your current character's UI INI file (ex. UI_Chet_ayonae.ini -> UI_Chet_ayonae.bck)
3. Rename UI_zw1280_servername.ini (or UI_zw800_servername.ini) to whatever your character's UI INI file was.
4. Log in and play.
Using the original UI_zw1280_servername.ini and UI_zw800_servername.ini, and changing the name to UI_CharacterName_Server.ini is not working. Zeremus: Breathe originally uses Georgia font where each letter or number takes up more room than normal. This creates a situation where HP and Mana numbers get cut off in the Group Window.
The solution to this problem is to open up your Options window (Alt+O) and change the font from Georgia to something else. Personally, I recomend Arial. I know that it works. The UI_zw1280_servername.ini and UI_zw800_servername.ini files that I included are edited from Georgia to Arial.
Things to come:
I'm planning on trying to revive Zeremus's original small inventory window. Going to add the new slot, and the tabs, but leave out the stats like he did. I also want to try to get back the look of the boxes as well that he had, with the blue headers.
