You were running Icon 1.0 and just jumped to 1.7?  Oh dear, we might have an overdose on our hands here.

Folders within folders
 go to your data file in CoH open it
 create folder{ texts}
 open that folder create folder {English}
open that folder create folder menus
open that and paste file in this folder   works like a charm!   had a car lot under Atlas in no time

Thanks!!!!

Sorry for this basic question...

I'm having a problem getting the popup menus working. I've read the Paragon Wiki on Popmenus. The thing I'm confused on is that it says to put the .mnu file in the
<COH_INSTALL_DIRECTORY>\data\texts\<LANGUAGE>\Menus\ directory.

I am not seeing this, or else I'm looking in the wrong place. I had to download the client files via torrent since I didn't have the client anymore. (Could that be why?)

I created a folder for City of Heroes in C:\ Program Files. Then I dropped the CoHBeta folder I downloaded into that.  So I have C:\ Program Files\City of Heroes\CoHBeta

The CoHBeta only has 4 subfolders: cider, doublefusion, piggs, and qt_pluggins. But no data folder, so I'm confused on when to put the .mnu files.

I tried creating a \data\texts\English\Menus\ directory in CoHBeta (as well as City of Heroes), and putting the maps.mnu and npc.mnu files there, but no luck.

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

Maybe someone else who knows better can help with this...
 the Cohbeta folder IS the top level folder for Coh in Program files. You don't need to put Cohbeta into into a Coh folder. I don't know if that's the problem or not. Once you have just C:\ Program Files\CoHBeta, then  \data\texts\English\Menus\   goes into that,  and your file goes into the menus folder.
See if this helps.

Are you using a Mac? Because I had a hard time with that too.

The folder you need to find is "data" the rest you have to create and name.

On a mac you right-click on the file in your applications folder and select "package contents" from there it's Contents/Resources/transgaming/c_drive/coh/Data
Then inside the data folder you create this nest of folders texts/English/menus/ and that's where you place the mnu files.

On a separate matter,  I'm in the process of doing an update, adding in the Summer Event NPCs, and making any corrections i find. Are there any mess-ups anyone has found- NPCs that don't spawn, wrong models, ect? I found a missing Vampire Lord in Halloween. Now would be a good time to fix it.

Just updated: Vampire Lord fixed in Halloween, and because Summer Event Theater was added to maps, just added Summer Event to Holidays, Summer Event. Some really great NPCs found there, also added to Various NPCs, Giant Monsters, and Selectable Dogs added to Various Pets. 
    Redownload from link on 1st page of post to update.  :)

Taci and I whipped up a few more models for you, batqueen.  Mostly Praetorian- 116 entries, precoded as best we could.  Let me know if this doesn't work and I need to email you the text file.  I couldn't find the models for Granny Beldame, Three Jaguars, or Trina the Body Sculptress.

OK! this took a lot longer than I thought, all day, but is a major update. And I thought I was done with it last time!  :o

 Thanks to Phaetan and Tacitala, there were a lot of new NPCs to enter. A few of them were already in, in their respective mob groups, but most were not. We've got new bunches of Praetorian Npcs, First Ward Npcs, and I looked up Night Ward NPCs as well.

 Granny Beldam was found, but the only model has a ring. Trina the Pocket D Npc has been added to a new group called Tailors, she has a ring as well and can't find a no ring model for that either. If you have to have a no- ring version of those for a pic or film, my only suggestion would be to build one using those as a guide and load it using /load costume

The floating effects Animus Arcana NPCs of First Ward are up in Objects, categories, because even though they are listed as NPCs, they are mostly stuff to fool with. 

 Here are a few more things that have been added....
 


a Black Hawk - looking Helocopter, in flight, heavily armed. In objects, flying stuff


 A Talons shrine- pretty big. with effects. In objects, single



A bombing attack, looks like a rikti raid except-



if you watch the bombs as they fall, they're old style bombs. In objects, categories, bombs.

 

Various items of power, floating iron balls with runes, the Rularuu book of power, in objects, categories, Items of Power.

the hellions fire rune,(objects, fire, and hellions mob) NPCs associated with the Trilogy book,(first ward npcs) and who knows what else.

All this and more can be yours for the paltry price of re-downloading, from the usual link in the first post... 

  It's had a pretty good rewrite today, and I'm pooped. Sorry for misspellings, and things like that. Big, big thanks to Phaetan and Tacitala, for their hard work in getting part of this together, Codewalker for Icon, and Wyldhunt for menu work.

Oh, you did! it would have taken even longer if not for the work you guys did. :) many thanks

I really tried to find the missing models, and found 2 out of the 3. I found an actual Jaguar, and a scaled down house cat, but no  "three Jaguars".  and the cats I did find had no texture, and were white. I'm sure it was an NPC, not an animal, but never could find the darn thing, or even a pic on the wiki telling me what I was looking for.
 Oh well, 2 out of 3 ain't bad... (meatloaf singing in background)

That bomb looks like the ones the Sky Raider Sky Skiffs shoot at you.  Of course, usually it's coming in at an angle.

I didn't even notice the bombs in it at first- and then taking a screenshot- started catching them all coming in sideways. weird. really lights up the whole street, though. I had to go finish testing on the other end of the block, lol.

Three Jaguars is NW_SpiritPanther_01

He's Githredeon's pet cat in Night Ward. Might even be a static NPC that shows up in Icon, not sure.

I thought Three Panthers had a unique model.  I guess I was mistaken.  Thank you for the clarification, Codewalker.

PS- could we please get an ICON subforum?  It would make tracking ICON itself and these addon popmenus much easier.
