Description: This tutorial is about act login, which shows you how to get advanced combat tracker and the kagerou theme or how to setup ACT to overlay your performance with the Kagerou theme. Kagerou is a visually pleasing DPS overlay theme that’s easy to configure.
Here’s a quick tutorial on how to get advanced combat tracker and the kagerou theme. You need to go to the advancedcombattracker.com and download ACT. When you have done with the setup, install it wherever you like. It’s very important that the shortcuts must be created.
When you install ACT, there are the properties of that the compatibility tab, tick run this program as administrator otherwise ACT will hook into ffs properly, be able to read the data and load up ACT, you’ll get the startup wizard which appears first into the next.
Click get available paths and plugins, wait a second, nothing is happening, it’s getting the plugins, make sure you pick the ffxiv plugin, it should automatically pick it, then you can look close, you create users plugin and then click close.
When you click on the plugins tab, this should be in the plugins tab and then the ffxiv tab, let’s look at this window, you need to tick combine pets with owner, there is the simulate individual dot crits, make sure these two are attached.
Now when you click test game connection, this is the message that you want, especially the sign network data is available, if you don’t have the message saying that they are saleable as it can’t connect to network data, you need to add an exception to your Windows Firewall or your third-party firewall and allow ACT to read your network data.
Once you’ve done that, click test game connection together, make sure if it doesn’t show that, you are going to get the most accurate information, next is to get the overlay theme, we’ll go to give a plugin, I’ll leave the link in the description bar.
It’s located to get the latest plugin, I’ll get the full version download, then you’ll get this order, what I do is that I put it in the ACT foulness, I make a new folder regularly, drag everything from the overlay plug-in zip into the folder, go back to ACT.
In the plugins tab I’ve been wrist and click browse, go to your ACT folder, go to your folder that you made, click plug-in, open it, click Add, this will then give you data to show and time, this is the default, overlay will show on the map.
Next, these are all really disabled, in plugins and ffxiv overlay settings make sure to target this hidden first toughest, hover targets and target tiresome, otherwise you’re going to get the default ACT, you may not want them, you can leave a little but for now we want to keep things nice and basic.
In the overlay plugin DLL tab of the plugins, you’ll have two things, mini parser and spell-timer, I don’t use a timer, if you want to check your spells, then you would need spell timer, now in the mini pass section or the overlay program you will see it as a URL.
This is where your theme is loaded, they are normally from HTML files, however the one that I use kagerou is a URL, copy that, paste it into ACT, click reload overlay, you’ll get this neat looking window, since in Korea I like to read orient, I need to change that.
Click the cogwheel, this will pop up this window, if you know everything here apart from the language bit, click here to change it to prefer the language, this is the Save button, click Save, then you will read what’s going on, if you have a pet, put it in here.
From now you can customize your overlay to whatever you want, you can add and track different things, you can add and track critical direct hits, the Max hits, damage taken, heating down, you can play around with that, select what you want.
Make sure you click Save after each exchange, it’s now reading the data from FFxiv tracking your comma stops, I hope that this helps you to be a better player. Thank you.
