General Overview of the Hobbit UI skin
 
Description
====={ Delving Hills LOTRO UI Skin }=====

Made for The Lord of the Rings Online: Riders of Rohan - Update 10
Version 1.20, 18 April 2013
Created by "Wicked Mouse"

The name "Delving Hills" given to this skin refers to the Shire obviously, as this skin tries to emit the homely athmosphere from the Shire Folk.

==============={ v1.20 }=================
Date: 18 April 2013

Added:
- 6-year Anniversary portraits (player, selected player and fellowship member).

Changed:
- War-steed vitals' glow tweaked.
==============={ v1.19 }=================
Date: 22 March 2013

Changed/Updated:
- stuff that was "turned off" due to Update 10, like box rims and backgrounds.

Added:
- Yule Festival portrait (better late than never).
==============={ v1.18 }=================
Date: 30 October 2012

Changed:
- Mainbar of the small version adjusted:
-- Smaller XP bar.
-- Smaller LOTRO Store button.
-- Position adjusted to circumvent the bug that renders buttons unclickable if the scale is not adjusted in the settings. This needs to be manually adjusted in the SkinDefinition.xml file to suit your screen resolution.

Added:
- The graphic files of the old version of the small mainbar with the long xpbar is included if the small XPbar is not desired. Some code lines that are marked for the small XP bar in the SkinDefinition.xml file need to be removed then.

==============={ v1.17 }=================
Date: 20 October 2012

Added:
- MC mainbar: For now the same as the normal mainbar, a more distinctive bar is in the planning.
- Great River and Rohan Tabs in Deed Log.
- Anniversary portraits for Monsterplay characters.
- The two display buttons on the vault UI.
- Pop-up quest offer button.
- War-steed vitals.

Changed:
- Mainbar. Buttons on the right side were moved a little to make room for the quickslot page buttons.

Known issues:
- When using the small mainbar version no buttons (apart from docked skill bars) can be used until the scale is changed to anything other than 1.00 in the options menu. Hopefully this will be resolved soon.

==============={ v1.16 }=================
Date: 7 June 2012

Added:
- Inanimate object target vitals (target's target).
- NPC escort vitals.
- Quest information panel decorations.

Changed:
- Mainbar updated for the extra button.
- Removed trait pips; no longer supported by the game.
- Added 4-year player portrait for fellowship member (forgot to export it last time, oops!).
- Some other little tweaks here and there...

==============={ v1.15 }=================
Date: 22 April 2012

Added:
- Anniversary portrait vitals (show off your status in style!).

Changed:
- Fixed the vital bugs that were appearing with the changes to the vitals

==============={ v1.14 }=================
Date: 18 January 2012

Added:
- Barter Wallet graphics.
- Vault textures (observant users would have noticed that with previous version most of it was already there).

Changed:
- Quest log header.
- Trait panel errors are fixed, some textures didn't show up (thanks to Adra for pointing them out, made it easy to fix!).

(older version info has been archived in Archive.txt)

==========={ User Agreement }============
(Last revised 10/05/2007)

If you use any of my work, all I ask for is clear acknowledgement of it in any and all of your descriptions and ReadMe files, that's not much to ask

is it?

1. You agree to this agreement by downloading and using any and all files and intellectual property included in this software package.
2. You agree to NOT discredit any author of any or all of their original software included be it code, graphics, any other assets or intellectual property.
3. You agree to NOT hold any author responsible for any damage, data loss or any problems caused directly or indirectly by this software.
4. You agree to NOT use any material included for monetary gain, as it is against Turbine's EULA agreement and it is NOT your right to make money off of other author's work.
5. You may redistribute any and all files contained in this package ONLY if they remain unmodified, this user agreement is included and proper credit to any and all authors is given.
6. You may modify and redistribute any and all files contained in this compilation ONLY with the expressed written permission of any and all respective authors.
7. If you do not agree to any of the points above then delete any and all files included in this package as well as past and future versions, by doing this you are agreeing to NOT use, modify and redistribute any and all material that is a part of this package for any purpose.

Translation: Do not take my work, use it to make a new skin and then do nothing to acknowledge the use of my work. While it is very flattering to see my work used throughout many other themes and many of you actually acknowledge it in your descriptions (thanks!), it is quite annoying and discouraging to find "new" skins using my work without a single mention of doing so and in some cases even bragging about all original work made from scratch, please do not do this, all it does is detract me from releasing updates more often.

==========={ Installation }==============

1. Exit the game (the included XML file only gets loaded at start-up)

2. A. Extract all the files from the ZIP file making sure the option to "use folder names" is enabled; The folder on your computer you should select as the destination will be:
..\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\
B. Use Windows ZIPPED file as a folder (no extracting required then) and copy the ZIP file to ..\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\ui

\skins\

3. When you chose to extract the ZIP file you should now have the following folder:
..\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\ui\skins\Delving Hills\

4. All images and the skin definition files will be inside their respective folders if extracted (properly).

5. Launch the game

6. Once in-game, go to OPTIONS then choose "UI Settings" from the menu on the right, once there scroll down to just above the new UI scale sliders to the UI Settings page and you will find a dropdown list where you can choose the UI Skin to use for that character.

7. Enjoy!

P.S. At first use, you will need to restart the LOTRO client in order to let the position and size changed to take effect.
P.P.S. With using the the small mainbar version, you might have to change its position if you're using a different resolution than I do (instructions are in the SkinDefinition.xml file).

Looks marvelous, although I wonder if there will be a "small" edition - excluding the bags and options icons.

I'll see if I can make a "minimalistic" letterbox. I haven't really examined the how to reposition stuff. This is my first attempt on making a skin

Perhaps the "SmallToolbar" may help in checking the code:

Mr. Wicked Mouse,

Love what you have done. You are truly a rising talent to keep an eye on. When I tried your 0.97 beta, I had no discernable problems. I am a big fan of minimalized main bars and when I saw you had done this in the new 0.98 beta, I was happy to see it as your interface is among my favorites next to LedMirage's stuff.

I am having problems with the new beta, however. I run the game at a resolution of 1280x1024. I do not know how much that factors into things, but when I run your latest beta without altering any files, (like the SkinDefinition file), the Main Bar graphics appear to be the mini version.


(click on image for full screen version)

When I follow your directions to enable the mini version, (by renaming the SkinDefinition-small file and renaming the original file), the bag and option icons remain in their default position and are not moved under the shingles as intended.


(click on image for full screen version)

Thanks again for your hard work. Hoping this isn't too hard to fix.

Hello Elvite

Thanks for the kind words. I had the same problem when I first played the champion on a different server, where I normally play, and I had the VERY same problem you are pointing out. Like "what the..?", on my hunter all was fine, right? So I logged back to my hunter, where I had the skin still enabled, and evrything seemed fine (same screen resolution, same settings, etc). So I get back to the champion.. and.. "what the..?" .. everything is fine!

So I'd suggest: keep the skin applied, exit the game and log back in. I got the idea it's server side or something. Or at least partially.. Please try that. The position seems fine on your screen. So apart from that there should be no difference beteen my screen and yours.

Please report back from what I suggested


Oh and btw.. what you said: "when I use the original files, I get the mini bar". You're correct. I left a bit of code uncorrected:

<Mapping ArtAssetID="LetterBoxBottom" FileName="mainbar-small\letterbox_bottom.tga"></Mapping>


It says.. while it should be:

<Mapping ArtAssetID="LetterBoxBottom" FileName="mainbar\letterbox_bottom.tga"></Mapping>

So this goes for the skindefinition that is without all the repositioning and resizing stuff in it.
Sorry about that!

The XP bar portion of it touches the extreme right side of the screen. Could this be because the interface was optimized for a 1600 display and not 1280?
Thanks for testing it on a different resolution. It's a pity that the position of the main bar (aka "letterbox") is determined by x and y, starting from the top left corner. So if someone is using a different resolution it gets shifted.
I indeed positioned it for my own resolution 1600x1200.

I left this in the code to explain it a bit:
<!-- change the X and Y values to reposition for a different screen resolution. 0,0 being top left of the screen.-->

The top left pixel of the main bar is the "key" pixel. As the bar is 1024 width and 110 height, you need to deduct 110 from top (but I guess it cannot get off screen, so that doesn't really matter here), and your screen resolution minus 1024, devided by 2 for the horizontal coords.

So the X coord for you should be something like: (1280 - 1024) / 2 = 256 / 2 = 128. Maybe it's 2 or 3 pixels off, if your docked bars are still centered, but on your screenshot they strangely seem to follow the main bar =).

Let me know if you still got questions


EDIT: ow you seem to have deleted your post already, Elvite ..guess you figured it out already

I deleted the post because I thought maybe I did something wrong. I double-checked and found that I didn't. It is a problem with the mini version being off-center. I looked at your instructions on how to resolve it and my brain proceded to short circuit. I have no experience with the code to this and I'm not certain of where to make these adjustments.

I think for now I'll stick with the full version for my hobbit character and wait for your next beta to try again. If you would like to send me a new skin definition to try out, I would be more than happy to give it a try for you.

I just registered to say thank you. I downloaded this skin (my first) after somebody put a link up on the Sanctuary forum.
It is fantastic. I was a little concerned over sizing as I have my resolution set higher than your 'read me' states, but it was fine when I loaded it up.

Well done, on an excellent job keep up the good work.



Thanks,
Bado

Great UI. This is one of the best ones I've seen made. I love it and will be using it for a long time on my hobbit minstrel. Gives me a little piece of the Shire when I'm roaming across Middle Earth. Thanks.
