About the windowed map
Hi, and thank you for your feedback,
Since years I answer these questions again and again, so I just added new entries concerning the windowed map in the faq on this page
I have no more knowledge about this subject than I logged there.
About turning invisible a whole panel or a panel element
I'm not sure to really understand what you mean / wish to do.
I think Thurallor
gave you the best reasonable answer
However, I can introduce you on the evilish corrupted path of skins customization if your actually wish is to play a warden without seeing its gambit bar
It's possible to "definitely" turn the gambit bar invisible, I mean without having any switch available to turn it visible on demand.
The way to proceed, as for any user interface element sourced in the Lotro skinning pack
(in the SkinDictionary.xml file of this archive
file), is to define its width and height to 1 pixel each, and report/log the customized code in the skindefinition.xml
file from the targeted skin folder inside your documents folder, using a text editor software as Window's Notepad or Wordpad or the excellent and free software Notepad++
You can insert your customized panel code at the end of the text, but pay attention to place it BEFORE the line
which represents the end of the file.
Here is the edited and shortened code to copy-paste in you Jappme's skindefinition.xml file to turn your warden' gambit invisible.
Be careful to target the right folder/file : There is 1 skindefinition.xml
file per theme and theme variation !
<Element ID="GamePlay_GambitBar" X="710" Y="591" Width="1" Height="1">
Last point : The first X and Y values in a panel's code represent its default location on the screen before the user customize it using [Control] +[*] (on azerty keyboards at least).
Some UI elements, as mail panel, fail to memorize custom location, so, for such buggy panels, editing default location can help to fit your needs.
