Description
===========
Pose Compendium is the express way to posing.

Fast pose change without menus. You will be able to navigate through hundreds of poses in seconds, switch between default and artistic pose in one key click, group your favorite poses the way you like it, remove poses you don't care about.


Location
========
Upon installation of the mod "Pose Compendium AE" book will appear in your inventory.


Requirements
=============
Oblivion v1.2.416
OBSE v17 (or higher)
Pluggy 125b (or higher)


Details
======
An extension of ideas from original Pose Compendium (animation navigation and selection) mod with simplified integration with animation mods in CTAddpose format.

Pose packs are great but their interface ... not so. Most of animation packs are packages in popular CTAddpose format (one item, one spell, multi-level menu to navigate). Having to click through dozens of menus to realize that pose you were looking for is not here. Pose Compendium gives you express access to HUNDREDS of poses alredy packaged in multitude of CTAddpose variants

I will eventually cover most of CTAddpose variants. It is quite easy generally BUT takes some time if authors desided to be "special" and deviate from CTAddpose template.


Usage
=====
Use Pose Compendium AE book once it has apper in your inventory. It work even better if you assign it to shortcut.
Explanation of menu items:
Use it now. Start posing. Yes, that is IT.
- Save it for later. Do nothing, put book down.
- Start over. Reads groups configuration anew. Picks up changes made in configuration file.
- Get rid of it. Disables Pose Compendium quest, removes book. Dont forget to uninstall.
- Toggle Debug. Very useful when setting up your own groups, you will see id of pose currently displayed. Sometimes need to use that twice (dont ask why).

Once you start posing session you control process via KEYS only, no more menus.

Default KEY binding.
P - Previous pose in group
[ - Force currently selected pose
] - Next pose in group
; - Previous group
' - Next group
. - Reset animation (default idle)
/ - Stop posing session

Edit "PoseCompendium_AE-keys.ini" to change bindings.

Sample posing session
----------------------------
Nice location, weather is amazing, I want to screenshot it.

2. Select "Use it now"
3. Change group until you find group you are looking for. After a while you will start recongnizing first animzation of the group.

Install
=====
Caution: Above average understanding of mod installation and configuration required.

1. Make sure you are running update Oblivion (you should be OK if you manage to run OBSE).
2. Make sure you have OBSE 17+.
3. Need to have Pluggy (OBSE Plugin). All "magic" around arrays facilitated by Pluggy.
4. Install ORIGINAL pose packs that you want to control via Pose
Compendium AE. If you miss this point you NOT going to get great results
(missing animations, not working animations, meshes, textures, etc).
Usually people pretty good at installation of pose packs, everyone want nice pose in screenshot.
5. Install Pose Compendium AE with pose packs you want to control (not every pose pack supported, see list below). Technically in this step original esp files will be replaced with Pose Compendium AE variant.
6. Download archive with groups configuration (PoseCompendium_AE-config.ini).
7. Unpack content to your personal folder. You should end up with ini file
in "(user folder)\My Games\Oblivion\Pluggy\User Files\" location.

6. Tweak "PoseCompendium_AE-config.ini" to include only required groups
(you can always download fresh copy if you mess up, backup helps too).
7. Well, pose away


Uninstall
========
1. Uninstall Pose Compendium AE
2. Uninstall all ORIGINAL pose packs
3. Remove config file from "(user folder)\My Games\Oblivion\Pluggy\User Files\" location


Incompatibility
===============
This mod does not change anything existing in game thus no major incompatibility.
Could conflict with other mods if control keys overlap.  Edit "PoseCompendium_AE-keys.ini" to change bindings.


Known Issues or Bugs
====================
1. Q. Animations look not right
A. Animations are NOT mine I can't help how they look.

2. Q. Some textures or meshes are missing.
A. Have to have original pose pack installed.

3. Q. Got book. Got menu. But nothing happen.
A. Toggle debug on, enable console output (~tdt). Try to "Start Over" couple times. Have to say how many groups loaded.
