Wykkyd Framework is now a COLLECTION of addons, comprising almost all of the features of the original Wykkyd’s Framework. This change was necessary as it allows support projects much more easily. It also means that the new pieces and parts have become stand-alone, and you can use whichever of them you wish to use, individually. And this also has the bonus affect of these new addons gaining the updates and features my other addons have received recently.
Your saved variables will, from now on, be far more stable
Things should generally run smoother and crisper
It is far easier to configure the addons to your desires now
- Wykkyd Suite Manager
- Wykkyd Enhanced Chat
- Wykkyd Enhanced HUD
- Wykkyd Macros
- Wykkyd Toolbar
Features that didn’t make the cut:
- Reticle Range Finder – This wasn’t all that good in the first place and was frustrating to maintain. It’s gone. If enough people want it back it may return.
- Multi-Monitor Support – is now handled by Wykkyd Multi-Screen addon
Advanced Setting Controls (available in all Wykkyd Addons)
- Save To Default – This feature saves a snapshot of your logged in character’s CURRENT settings as a save set named SYSTEM DEFAULT.
- Load System Default – This loads the current SYSTEM DEFAULT as your character’s settings and effectively sets your character to MIMIC the SYSTEM DEFAULT. This behaves exactly like Mimic below, with the exception that the SYSTEM DEFAULT only ever changes when you manually save to it from any character, by clicking Save To Default.
- Mimic… – This sets the current logged in character to adopt the settings of another character until this value is changed. This causes the logged in character’s saved settings to reset every time you log in or Reload UI to be like the mimic’ed character. If you set George to mimic Bob, as you save settings on Bob while playing those settings will become George’s settings too whenever you log into George. As you play George and change his settings manually, those changes become temporary unless you clear the Mimic box. This affords some fairly awesome opportunities for your play sessions.
- Wykkyd’s Preferences (where available) – This will Reload UI and set your active character to the basic settings that Wykkyd uses for that addon for his characters as his STARTING point, he customizes each character from there and you are encouraged to also do so.
- Reset All – Resets all settings inside the Advanced Setting Controls section for that addon, for that character
Use of SYSTEM DEFAULT allows you to basically create system-wide default settings. I say “system” because these settings are not filtered by account name. So if three people share your computer, they all adopt the system defaults (if they selectively choose to do so). This is a “neat trick” for people with multiple accounts as it lets you share settings across all of them.
For example, if you log into your first character and set every Wykkyd addon up the way you want. Then in each you click “Save To Default”, one by one. You’ve now established your “baseline”, if you will. You can then log into each character you have (regardless of number of accounts), including that same first character, and inside each, in each addon, click “Load System Default”. Now every single character will use the same settings. In fact, because you saved defaults from character 1 and then set character 1 to use those same defaults, even that character is inheriting the SYSTEM DEFAULT every single time it loads. This means if you’re on character 7 and decide to change your default for all, all you have to do is tweak your settings and click “Save To Default” and every single character you set up this way gets those settings automatically.
WARNING: System Default, and Mimic, can be dangerous. As of this time this ALSO includes saved item sets, gear sets, quest header settings, tracked achievements… IE: it includes data saved by the addons too. THIS WILL BE CHANGING IN THE FUTURE to be more intuitive and robust. But I didn’t want to delay this feature until that was 100% polished. After all, this is fairly useful as is.
Go to the “ESO” folder in your Documents
For Windows: C:\Users\\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\\
For Mac: ~/Documents/Elder Scrolls Online//
You should find an ESO AddOns folder, if you don’t, create one.
Extract the addon from downloaded zip file to the AddOns folder
