WerikUI is the first Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures Graphical User Interface (GUI) modification.
This mod tries to appeal to those who prefer the cleared out, minimalistic but at the same time informative GUI over visually richer interfaces which take up more screen space.
1) Make a backup copy of your <Age of Conan>\cd_image\Gui\Customized\ folder if you are using other modifications. They might be incompatible. 2) Unpack the downloaded file in a temporary directory. 3) From the above temporary directory, copy the whole cd_image folder into your Age of Conan directory.

Revision Number changes (Out of Date Issues)
Every time Funcom patches the game client the revision number increases. This can cause that the modifications will be outdated and won't load anymore. In this case you should get a warning during the launch of the game.
You can update the revision numbers yourself, though I'd not recommend it. If the revision number of a file changes, there is a big chance that file was modified. If you update the old file's revision number, you might loose new features which were introduced by the new patch.
Knowing this if you want to update your files, you must replace the revision number inside the XML files. The XML files are always in cd_image\Gui\Customized\ .
Look for the the line:
<!-- $Change: '''XXXXX''' $ (must be within the first 200 characters of the file) -->
where, XXXXX is the revision number. It is usually the second line of the file.
To find out what the correct revision number is, you have to check the exact same file inside cd_image\Gui\Default\. These are the default Age of Conan GUI layout files.
Lets say you want to change the revision number of your customized BottomBar.xml because at loading time the game tells you that it's out of date.
In this case, you go to cd_image\Gui\Default\Views\HUD, open BottomBar.xml, and look at the second line. The revision number is the number you can find between $Change: and the next $ sign.
Now you go to cd_image\Gui\Customized\Views\HUD\, open BottomBar.xml, find the second line again, and replace the number with the new revision number. Save the file and you are good to go!
