Modified the graphic files to allow for chisper images allowed with the new Direct X 9.0c compliant coding language. Enjoy the new graphics and let me know if you like them.
Mar 10, 2006:
Modifed the EQUI_BankWnd.xml and EQUI_BigBankWnd.xml file to allow for usage of the new PoR bank slots. I modifed the Spellbook, Spellbar, Casting, and Group windows to give the graphics a more crisp appearence. We are offically PoR Compatibly sorry it took so long to get it done...

Modifed the baseline design for all modded windows to add into effect more veins, and thorns, that have been interwoven into the ivy boarders. Also modded out several windows, and adjusted the group, hotbutton 1, player, and action windows to allow for better viewing, and placement of vital information in a better format. Also modified the target ring due to some complaints about functionality of graphics.
Jan 24, 2006:
Changed the BACKGROUND graphic for the windows, I received a few complaints from tester's and user's of my User Interface, that there was just oo much Green... So now the background has been changed to a deep richer darker wood grain styled backdrop. Which has been much easier on the eyes.
