Mana Costs 1.2.4
About this mod
While it might have chances winning the "most uninspired and inexpressive mod name" prize, this mod may actually be useful for some people. It displays the mana costs of spells and items directly over the icons:
This mod is not compatible with Tiny UI nor MiniUI.
I also didn't bother to create a s2z version since this mod edits ui/game.interface which is used by many if not most interesting mods.

Basically the same thing, but the numbers in the bottom left on top of the icons. This version is compatible with TinyUI.

v1.2.4 [02.03.12]: Fixed for patch 2.5.13 and made more fancy looking - thanks to asarja for the update!
v1.2.3 [14.12.10]: Updated for HoN 2.0
v1.2.2 [12.05.10]: Updated for game release.
v1.2.1 [25.03.10]: Fixed for FE2.
v1.2 [08.03.10]: Fixed console error messages ("ui_mana_disableabilities not found" and similar) by removing that useless feature (the one to disable the display individually for abilities or items). Added autoupdatability, just in case.
v1.1 [03.11.09]: Fixed mistake in honmod edit instructions. Items should now have their mana costs on them as shown in the screenshot and multi-abilities like Soulstealer's Demon Hand should now work as well.
v1.0 [02.11.09]: Initial release.

Awesome Idea! Installing it now and I know I will love it
now i am not sure if i should use tiny-mod or this 1 instead....
Added in the repo.
WOW awesome! I always hate looking at my skills trying to add them up to see if i have enough, now this makes it easy.
Edit: AWW can't use this with TINYUI?!?! (( Nvm I will not use.
I checked out your code, and I fail to see how this is incompatible with TinyUI. TinyUI doesn't touch the sections you're editing.
Edit: I noticed it's because TinyUI moves the icons that you listed it as "incompatible". If you used relative positioning, you wouldn't have that problem.

Any chance you would add a countdown timer in seconds for when you will have mana to use each the skill based off of current rate of regen? Barter's Info panel has a similar thing that tells how long in seconds until you have max HP/Mana.
Just a suggestion, love the mod =P
Well I'm gonna just make a TinyUI compatible version instead I guess...
Edit: OP link should work better now.

I'm using 1920x1080 (16:9) screen resolution.
The mana value's overlaying my gold is about the only thing stopping my from using this.
gj though =o
Are you going to release your mod, AsiaPingPong? 'cause I kinda liked it better in the lower left corner. Although, both mods are great
