     The Elder Scrolls IV
           OBLIVION:
      	Improved UI Mods with No Markers
     by Beider & Tikigod

     1. ABOUT

*****************************************************************

There is no esp file. These files should be unzipped in the Data directory
of your Oblivion installation.

This new release is a joint effort between Tikigod and Beider, we merged our UI packages
to try and make a single and better release for everyone.

This mod can also turn off the Quest Hint Markers on the Compass and Map pages. It
will remove the Dungeon/POI hints that the compass shows. The 
Dungeon/POI icons still show up on your main map screens though. 
You just have to be more "explorery" :P

**NOTE: There is no way to toggle these within the game (that 
I know of yet). If you want to reenable the markers, you will 
need to exit the game, delete (or rename) the "menus" and then 
restart Oblivion.

In some rare occasions, the Compass will show the red marker(sometimes more than one).
It may be related to putting down a User Created marker. If this happens, 
you can open the console and enter: reload hudmainmenu
This should clear and reload the hud with the compass.


*****************************************************************

     2. INSTALLING THE PLUGIN

*****************************************************************

Just extract the menues folder within the archive to your oblivion\data directory

Your folder path should look like,
Oblivion\Data\menus\main\inventory_menu.xml

If you wish to use a morrowwind (or other elderscroll games) fonts then put them in
data\fonts\
then change oblivion.ini to refer to them instead. Font 3 is the one this addon uses for most of the stuff.


*****************************************************************

     3. FILE INFO

*****************************************************************

menus\container_menu.xml
	Changes the loot windows ingame to have more items showing at once.

menus\repair_menu.xml
	Changes repair menu, alchemy, soulgem, etc...

menus\main\inventory_menu.xml
	Extends the item screen and makes 15 records visible at once.

menus\main\magic_menu.xml
	Extends the magic screen and makes 15 records visible at once.

menus\main\stats_menu.xml
	Improves the status views a bit.

menus\main\map_menu.xml
	Change the size of your quest font to font 3 (A smaller font)
	Changes your map size and adds fade on quests
	(You can change the fade / no fade and add markers if you want)

menus\main\hud_main_menu.xml
	Will remove the Quest Markers and Dungeons from the Compass if you use the No Markers version

(By default map_menu.xml and hud_main_menu.xml in the menus\main\ directory are the Quest Markers OFF versions. Use the 2 files in the "Markers" directory in the other 2 sub-directories off of the extract.)


menus\dialog\dialog_menu.xml
	Added functionality where the Up Arrow will exit out of the dialogue. The Down Arrow should open up the Persuasion Menu. (This is somewhat buggy for various hardcoded reasons)

menus\dialog\texteditmenu.xml
	During Class Selection, when you made a custom class, the name entry was very limited in size(limited by the sum of the widths of the letters used). Can now enter HUGE class names if desired.
