Conversion Possibilities and Rare Roulette Quick Reference popmenus


Recommended Posts

The Conversion Possibilities popmenu has existed for a while, having originated and been available in this thread (and an argument might be made that it should stay there). If you want a peek into the lunacy that spawned this popmenu, I suggest starting there. This popmenu details all conversion possibilities for the enhancements shown on the HC wiki enhancement sets page.

 

I'm starting a new thread for this popmenu because I've added a quick reference menu for 'rare roulette' conversions. Those typically include a conversion by category to get from an uncommon set to a rare set (which is where this quick reference menu will be most applicable) followed by conversions by rarity until a sufficiently valuable enhancement is obtained. I had previously used a printed 2-sided PDF summary as a handy rare roulette reference, but thought the idea might translate well to a popmenu.

 

I've made two different menus available. The first is a standalone version of the Rare Roulette quick reference popmenu. For the masochists true conversion enthusiasts, I've also included the full Conversion Possibilities popmenu which now includes the Rare Roulette quick reference.


Installation

Spoiler

The simplest installation method is to use the CoH modder tool. The Rare Roulette quick reference popmenu is available there under the name Rare Roulette Quick Reference Menu (v1) and the Conversion Possibilities popmenu is available there under the name Conversion Possibilities Menu (v1).

 

For manual installation, you'll need to locate the root folder for your CoH installation. If using the new Homecoming Launcher, click the settings button (which looks like a little gear) in the upper right corner of the HC launcher. When the settings window appears, the installation location is shown at the top of the window. The following screenshot illustrates what you'll see (the settings button appears in green here):

If using Tequila or Island Rum, you'll either need to search for the install manually, or you should be able to check the properties of the shortcut used to launch Tequila/Island Rum, and the installation location should be listed there.

 

Once you have located your installation root folder (which I'll refer to as <CoH Root Folder>), the menu file should go into:

<CoH Root Folder>\data\texts\English\menus

If you don't have the data folder, or any of its subfolders, it should be fine to create them. Place the .mnu file in the last subfolder 'menus'.

Rare Roulette Quick Reference Popmenu Preview and Use

To use the Rare Roulette quick reference popmenu, highlight your starting enhancement from the alphabetic list. This will display all enhancements with that particular category. Potential uncommon conversions are denoted with a yellow dot, and potential rare conversions are denoted with an orange dot. Each enhancement's level range is listed, and the starting enhancement is greyed out to indicate it is not available. Use the rarity indicators and level ranges to decide whether to convert that enhancement by category.

 

The Rare Roulette quick reference popmenu can be accessed in-game using one of the following methods:

from chat: /popmenu RareRoulette
via keybind: /bind <your_key> "popmenu RareRoulette"
via macro: /macro <macro_name> "popmenu RareRoulette"

I recommend using a keybind, because in some parts of the menu there are several sub-menus which may extend partway across the screen. By using a keybind, the menu will appear at your cursor location when the keybind is pressed, so I typically move the cursor to the upper left of the screen and then press my keybind so that I have enough room for the submenus to expand if needed.

To use the Conversion Possibilities popmenu, highlight your starting enhancement from the alphabetic list then drill down depending on the desired conversion type to see the possible conversion outcomes based on the level of the starting enhancement. The Conversion Possibilities popmenu also includes the Rare Roulette quick reference popmenu as decribed above.

 

The Conversion Possibilities popmenu can be accessed in-game using one of the following methods:

from chat: /popmenu ConvPoss
via keybind: /bind <your_key> "popmenu ConvPoss"
via macro: /macro <macro_name> "popmenu ConvPoss"

I recommend using a keybind, because in some parts of the menu there are several sub-menus which may extend partway across the screen. By using a keybind, the menu will appear at your cursor location when the keybind is pressed, so I typically move the cursor to the upper left of the screen and then press my keybind so that I have enough room for the submenus to expand if needed.
