    Montis' MiniMap Misclick Manager v1.6.4 (2012-01-24)

    What it does
    This small mod adds a non-clickable area on the top and the right border of the minimap, thus avoiding misclicks and when playing on Legion side and spamming right click to get to safety. The non-clickable area is marked by a toggleable overlay to serve as visible aid. You can resize it and change the color and opacity through an options panel.
    Also, there's an option to "reroute" your misclicks onto the game layer so they become actual clicks.
    Misclicks are tracked in a counter.


    How it looks





    Download
    .honmod v1.6.4 (this requires ModMan v1.2 or above)

    .honmod v1.4 for TinyUI - courtesy of FrozenDragon, not tested nor supported by me <- THIS IS OLD AND WON'T WORK ANYMORE, feel free to make it work with FE2 though and post a link in this thread, I will update it here then


    Future plans
    - maybe make a compatibility update for mods which alter the minimap size (unlikely)


    Changelog
    v1.6.4 They broke it again (2012-01-24)
    - fixed mod for UI overhaul
    - fixed positioning in Options

    - truly updated the compatibility for FE2

    v1.6.1 the 0.3 text-update (2010-03-25)
    - updated the HoN compatibility indicator to 0.3xx as everything still works fine (hopefully)

    - added option to reroute the clicks onto the game layer (thanks to Ignorance)
    - added (limited) option to move the minimap button
    - added auto updating for HoNMod Manager, therefore requires ModMan v1.2 or above
    - added semi-compatibility to MiniUI
    * don't report bugs in combination with MiniUI if the overlays don't work or aren't really on top of the minimap. I won't care (for the moment)!

    v1.4b compatibility update (2010-01-16)
    - added .honmod compatibility with most recent version of BardUI where he added the custom MiniMap
    * Note: the overlay only displays when you have the standard map active!

    - added sliders to set width and height of the overlay
    - added sound
    - added semi easter egg
    - added incompatibility with Tiny UI and MiniUI to the HoNMod file

    v1.2 now with options! (2009-12-17)

    - added a button for three toggleable states
    * on (with red visible aid)
    * on (with sexy girls as visible aid)
    * off
    - known issue: overlay doesn't keep the state in which it's left, default state for overlay is on with red visible aid
    - known issue: on some screens/resolutions, there's a small gap between the overlay panels

    v1.0 initial release (2009-12-08)
    - red, non-clickable area on top and right of minimap, no configuration


    Known issues
    - Incompatible with Tiny UI (and probably other addons which alter the mini map)


    Installation
    Use the HoN ModMan like you do with other mods.


    Note
    This mod edits the following files:
    ui/main.interface
    ui/game.interface

    ... You win the internetz.

    People can no longer say, "OMG SPAM CLICK MADE ME GO BACK QQ".

    Nice mod, hopefully the download is available soon. But could you make the unclickable area have more sex appeal? I dunno, putting a blacksmith there might be nice.

    Last I checked, that border isn't the same in the other two maps of the game. This might cause some problems with those.

    okay I tried and the only map where it really could restrict you is when you're playing hellbourne on watchtower (TPing back to fountain could be a bit tricky there), so I don't think I'll bother myself for changing this whole thing just because of that

    nice Mod, thx 4 that

    so I tinkered the freaking whole day and all I got was a toggleable version.

    it's got one bug though: I couldn't get the damn overlay to load at the same state in which it's left, so I defaulted it to the first setting (on, with red visible aid). if someone could help me with this, I would be very thankful.

    downloadlink in the first post (only HoNMod for now).

    SetSave(var, value);

    Should work... then you just pull the value of that var when the game loads.

    yeah I have that but how can I use this?
    <panel visible="var" /> didn't work for me or maybe I was doing it wrong?
