Default Unofficial Custom Client Release

Background

So, half a year ago or so, the idea of remaking the game interface was brought up. A group of people, consisting mainly of Reiku7, Gamegod, MajinGoku and myself, united forces and spent quite some time trying to remake the whole savage2 client.

The goal was to unite all useful old mods, add our own, and distribute the result as a community mod, perhaps with custom installers. Later, the community got access to the patch server, and so this project was postponed for more direct changes to the game. The plan was to slowly port many of the changes made to the official client and when everything was done, update the default installer with these resources as version 2.2.

And then the salvage team resigned and the game's community started to fade again. With the purpose of this project removed, there is nothing else to do but to release it in a premature state just for the shake of the work done.

Thanks to all who helped in this project, for the endless chats and brainstorming, optimistic visions and, of course, for the fun of creating this.


Screenshots

Some representative parts of the resources:






Features

While the release is quite unclean and not optimised, there are quite some reasons for you to download and try it:

- Color Remake

- Main Menu
* Flash news feed (will probably not be updated as often as intended though)
* Shortcuts (you can customise them by right clicking)
* Re-styled replay browser (link)
* Return to browser without relogging

- Options Menu
* Sound and Voice tabs cleaned and merged under audio
* Extra key binds with customised scripts (link)
* Ability to bind key combinations with shift, ctrl or alt (link)
* Real-time update of your alt-info style (link)
* Enable/Disable a variety of mod plugins

- Server Browser
* New filter to show official servers only
* Added button for Options

- Game Lobby
* Added buttons for Options and Quit
* Team flags for each race, click to join a team immediately when a slot is available

- Re-touched old-style Loadout Screen

- Action Player
* Custom crosshairs for each unit and ability
* Skill cooldowns

- Commander
* Skill mana and cooldown chat
* Custom player portraits
* See player squad in chat (link)

- Voice Commands
* "Awesome" and "Moar" pack included
* Mute/Disable groups of unwanted commands in options

- Chat (manually set variables _customclient_chat_*)
* Change the style or font of the chat boxes in any interface specifically
* Prefix your chat with a color of your choice (in the form of ^RGB, eg: ^579)
* Color fix (prerequisite to see other people's color prefixes)
* Execute custom commands by chatting in the form of "//command" (edit /chatcommands.cfg to)
* Random message script (edit /random_message.cfg)
* New cleanfont

- Spectator custom ui

- Extra music and artwork from HoN

- Many other small things


Please notice that many intended features were stripped out to make it possible to distribute this to the public. Some of them were the detailed newsbox, the restricted premium account pitch, and the help button for server browser, the shaman warp experimental fix or others.

There are also unused resources included, like extra voice snippets for Jereziah and Ophelia

Download

Version 2.0 of the resources can be found in the following link:
http://188.40.92.72/Pidgeoni/resourcescc20.s2z

The mod will override any of the wiwis mods unless you rename the resources. Only pack verified to work is wiwis comm ui, when renamed as resourcescc43.s2z.

After installing the resources and starting savage2, the mod will configure itself and restart the game. You may then need to reconfigure your game via the options menu. It is recommended to reset all keybinds to default to make use of the new scripts.

Beware that this mod isn't tested, and is considered incomplete. Use at your own risk.

You may report any errors or ask for specific things to be polished, but those may or may not be fixed. This will probably be my last contribution to this game (i say probably in case it has yet another rezz trinket in its pocket)

Have fun!

I love VOIP
sing: "base, base, base, base, base, base, base"

Why only 15 year old girls? Since 4 Years, damn I'm doing something wrong...

One day I will find out who is responsible for the K2 scripting "language" and the modding "support". And then...

Implementing wiwis as an option was in the todo list... I guess it will never be done :(
At least many of the stuff wiwi made was implemented, like cooldown labels/chat for skills...

Currently reuploading a version of the resources that will hopefully be compatible with wiwis (soz if that broke any downloads, should be over in 5 minutes).

You will also need to rename resources43.s2z to resourcescc43.s2z. Will alter the mod update center to link to already renamed resources soon.
