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:
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.
- 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!
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.
Please post any feedback in this thread, send gratitude isk to psykzz or me, and enjoy!
