Time and time again, CCP makes changes which require users to update their overview settings. For players with only 1-2 active characters, this is trivial. For multiboxers, this is tedious and annoying. As usual, GARPA has your back. GarpaUI is a small utility which does one thing and does it well: it copies your UI/overview/client settings from a particular character and account to every other character and account in your most recently used Eve client's settings directory. It was brainstormed/designed by myself, implemented by Psykzz, and tested by dabigredboat, nzezt, and Aryth.

The workflow is like this:
  • Make your overview/UI perfect on one character (with only that client open).
  • Close all clients.
  • Run GarpaUI, select character, apply changes.
  • Open other guys, enjoy!
Please note, the 'update account-wide' checkbox is on by default and needed to properly copy overview categories. Ship-specific settings (drone groupings and mod positions) will need to be redone on the target characters/ships after changes are applied. When doing fresh EVE installs, you must have logged into a character at least once to have it be a valid target for copying settings over. .NET required. If things go wrong, GarpaUI does perform backups and has a restore function. p.s. you can ignore any chrome/win8 warnings about how they don't "recognize" this file, those are generic warnings and not specific to GarpaUI. I ran the file through virustotal.com and it's clean.

Need an overview pack to go with this? Try out Aryth's recently updated megapack: https://goonfleet.co...ted-02-24-2013/ or this popular HBC megapack: http://forums.ponywa...retribution-11/ or just my simple overview settings, attached below.

Interesting. Just to confirm this updates all your most recent characters on one machine? So it doesn't magically update other machines you may use (work/home/laptop etc)?

Limited to one machine yep. It asks which profile you wish all others to have.

:frogsiren: updated to v1.2 Download: https://garpa-softwa...com/GarpaUI.zip updated to v1.2 :frogsiren:

Version 1.2 fixes errors reported by some users with weird paths and/or isboxer and makes the app a little more resilient in general. It also fixes an annoying but harmless API error message, and improves some edge cases with junctioned installs.

p.s. a big :condi: to CSM8. During their "reasonable things" crowdsourcing, my suggesting for CCP to implement GarpaUI-like functionality client-side was on the first page of comments and had the most likes yet the client-side option did not make their final list and the server-side one was buried at #95 and not described in detail with reference to GarpaUI. As a result, it wasn't voted in and CCP thinks nobody cares. That means I have to keep this utility updated instead of CCP just fixing this shit on their end. Argh.


Please post any feedback in this thread, send me any thank-you isk for me + the team, and enjoy!

The workflow is like this (and yes I realize it's a screenshot of 1.2 instead of 1.3):
  • Make your overview/UI perfect on one character (with only that client open).
  • Close all clients.
  • Run GarpaUI, select EVE install (should default to your main EVE TQ client), select character you want everyone's settings to look like, apply changes.
  • Close GarpaUI, play EVE, enjoy!

:frogsiren: updated to v1.3 Download: https://garpa-softwa.../GarpaUI-13.zip updated to v1.3 :frogsiren:

Version 1.3 fixes issues related to logging into TQ from proxies, or having duality installs, correctly applying settings across all installs, and a few other edge cases.

p.s. a big :condi: to CSM8. During their "reasonable things" crowdsourcing, my suggesting for CCP to implement GarpaUI-like functionality client-side was on the first page of comments and had the most likes yet the client-side option did not make their final list and the server-side one was buried at #95 and not described in detail with reference to GarpaUI.

Please post any feedback in this thread, send me any thank-you isk for me + the team, and enjoy! Postal Dude did basically everything for the 1.3 update.
