I debated on whether to put this on my website or not, but since I am an active player of FFXI and I have been trying to update this plugin for the unofficial Windower, I figured I might as well. It’s also on my FFXI Blog.
With that said..
Whether or not you agree with it, the unofficial FFXI Windower does have some handy little add-ons. One of which is something I use: Infobar. If you’re unfamiliar with it, it basically just adds a bar at the top of your screen and when you scroll over something (say a monster) it gives you information on the subject. It’s mostly used to look at monsters without having to run to the wiki. It can tell you if a monster aggros, what level range it is, if it’s by sound/true sound/etc etc etc. It’s handy and I don’t think it’s really “game breaking” like some of the plugins that some people use.
Anyway, the database has been out of date for over a year now and it doesn’t seem like it’s ever getting another update. I’ve decided to take it upon myself to start trying to update it. I know this is going to be quite a task, as there’s tons of new monsters in this game, but I figure..well, why not? If someone else comes along and beats me to it, I’ll gladly just give the link to their work but until then I’ll try to update it periodically.
