Re: LArger Preview warsteed panel and Collections ?

@maddog1169
About panels resizing

Quote:
very nice theme collection.
But a smal question -
Isnt there a possibility to make the Warsteed Panel and preview lager as with the Cosmetics and the little previews in the Collection panels ?
Hi, in order to be customisable, panels source codes have to be released in a skinning pack.
As far as I know these 2 panels codes are not included in the last skinning pack released by lotro staff (U22).
In addition, editing a panel which is resizeable ingame with a handle (as collection panel has) can lead to issues.
Then, I don't think it's possible for now.

@Nadia
user request on a theme

Quote:
Dear Adra, thanks for the update! <3

Is it possible that you fix the minimap graphics for the Delving skins?
There used to be these cute flowers around the minimap, but now the minimap is blank except for Delving Large II.

In the original skin set there where those flowers - just beautiful!
Please bring them back!
Hello, indeed, untill the release of the Large Tollbar II edition, there were no flowers around the minimap in the JRR version of delving hills, just a minimal design. This is the result of a choice.

The purpose of the JRR Skins collection is not to "fix and replace" the original themes.
It also revisits them in order to let some leeway to the original authors to keep their interest for maintaining and developing their skin in their original spirit if they choose to come back. (in addition of letting me expressing my own inspiration)

This is particularly true with Delving Hills, whom the author, Wicked Mouse, resumed its work in 2012, after 5 years without updates.
If you compare the original release with the JRR edition, you will notice a large amount of differences designed to offer the users an alternative experience of this wonderful theme.

However I heard you, and in the next JRR release (no date, as I don't plan to release an update until a fix is needed) there will be a different minimap for each skin variation : large 1 = original radar (but with Jappme buttons), large 2 = jappme radar (as now), short toolbar = minimal radar (as now).

EDIT : This is your lucky day !

Hello everyone and sorry for the late replies, indeed I still have issues with email notification for new messages.

@Nadia and @Elheriand

Hello and thank you for your kind comment, always appreciated


@Tobardus
An issue appeared since a Lotro update

Hello, thanks for the fantastic compilation. Simply awesome.
I have a small issue with the quest panel. The text does not stretch all the way to the bottom and the Aa font size button also is to far up.
Hello and thank you for your kind comment.
Unfortunately at this stage I have no more ressources to work on than any of you
I haven't the ability to read the code directly inside the lotro client to look at the changes introduced in the quest book
This means I can't work on a fix unless SSG releases an update of the skinning pack or communicate the new lines of code embedded in the updated quest book.

Replacing the toolbar from a skin by another one

Quote:
I really enjoy the skins and I particularly love the JRR - Erebor *Custom toolbar* and was wondering if there was any way that I could use that toolbar for some of the other skins, in essence, replace the toolbar they use with that one in the file?

If not, can a toolbar like this Erebor custom one be made for the other skins as an option?

Hello, replacing the toolbar from a skin by another one is possible but not very fast nor handy.


A very short lesson about skinning in order to describe the basic way it works

Changing the whole appearance of a panel is divided in 2 actions :

- First consists into editing the size and the location of each element composing the frame of the panel (buttons, text area, borders, sliders, etc) this step consist in building a plan/structure like describing each size and position of each bone of a skeleton.
Skinning only opens the way to edit some existing values of some panel SSG allow us to customize. We don't have the ability to add any new function in a panel. We can only change size and location.
We can turn an element invisible by setting its size to 1x1 pixel (or replacing it picture file by a blank one in the next part).

- The second part consists of drawing and including in the theme the replacement picture files (skin) to apply visual material to cover/fill the custom structure defined in the plan (the custom bones of our skeleton).
All the informations about the changes in the structure of the panels and where to find the custom picture files to cover/fill it are included in the skindefinition.xml file.
The custom picture files (TGA, JPG and PNG) are contained in the skin folders.
When no replacement picture file is indicated for an element in the skindefinition.xml file, the lotro client loads default corresponding picture.
Same thing for panel customization : When no custom values are logged for a panel in the skindefinition file, the lotro client will load the default version of the panel or the default corresponding values).



Here are 2 ways to replace a toolbar by yourself
... but be aware the result will probably require some further fiddling to be free of defaults

Disclaimer : To make it the most easy and short possible, the following step by step way to proceed is only intended for editing themes that don't already require to edit their skindefinition.xml file in order to define their toolbar location depending your screen resolution.
I mean it SHOULDN'T be applied on Monsters lair short, Delving hills short, BGM short neither Greyskin addon theme and Azure glass themes except "universal".
All other JRR themes should be OK.


To obtain the large Erebor toolbar in replacement of the default lotro toolbar :

Open the Erebor theme folder, then open the "_Custom toolbar 3x2" folder. You will find a "toolbar" folder and a skindefinition.xml file.

Open the skindefinition.xml with your text editor then copy the block of text contained AFTER the line containing

Code:
<SkinName Name="JRR Erebor - Custom Toolbar 3x2"></SkinName>
and BEFORE the line containing

Code:
<!-- End of toolbar -->
Now locate your destination theme and open its own skindefinition.xml file, then paste this block of text AFTER the line containing [code]<SkinName Name="YOUR DESTINATION THEME NAME.....

The goal of placing the block of code near the beginning of the text is to prioritize the new pictures files injected over those logged farther in the text, in case of duplicate entries (and there will be some ).

save the changes made in your edited skindefinition.xml file.

Now copy the "toolbar" folder located inside the "_Custom toolbar 3x2" folder and paste it in your destination theme in the SAME folder than the edited skindefinition.xml file

Now go in the main/root folder of Erebor theme then copy these folders : "toolbar", "misc" and "startmenu" then paste them in the main/root folder of your destination theme (choose "overwrite" folders and files if Windows asks you what to do for duplicate files and folders).

Close the relaunch lotro if it was running. Cross fingers, pray the Valars, then launch lotro and load your character wearing this skin to see the result

I just came back to LOTRO and I wanted to say Thank You.

Playing without my JRR Erebor UI would definitely not be the same!

Hello everyone and sorry for the late reply, I didn't noticed till now that the last messages notifications I received were sent to the spam folder of my webmail before the were redirected to my mailing software.

@Juraviel
about universal toolbar based skins

1 - On universal short toolbars icon on the left and on the right of the main toolbar can be turned invisible but cannot be disabled.
In the option menu you can replace a function button by another one, so for example with the filter button which was not yet updated to be turned invisible, you had the ability to replace it another function button to get to turn it invisible. On some other skins, only the hobby button is turned invisible in order to let you choose to display or not not the buttons you want, except the "hobby" one (Kenobi ?).

2 - The menu panel icons and the side buttons form the toolbar are the same icons ingame, this means if the buttons at the left and the right of the toolbar are turned invisible, the are invisible to in the left arrow vertical menu, it only appears the background of the buttons which is a different picture, common to all buttons.

3 - You can assign the FX button of your choice in game, shortcut button to access the choice menu is the very small button at the bottom left of the auto attack button.
The big lotro store button at the right end of the toolbar is the default design of the toolbar. Its location cannot be changed in an universal toolbar based skin (a skin which fits to any screen resolution which doesn't require the final user to manually edit the skindefinition.xml with a text editor file to properly place the toolbar by changing X and Y values to locate it at the middle bottom of the screen, depending its resolution). To say it simple, an universal toolbar only change the pictures applied on the default toolbar, so it behave exactly as the default toolbar since there is zero line of code to modify it.
This is a limitation of the game. Modifying the "internal mechanics" of the toobar breaks its ability to self-locate at the bottom middle of the screen, so there are just a few skins of that kind included in the JRR pack to avoid frustrating most of the users.


@Invizet
ingame main loading screen

The .TGA file corresponding to the fiullscreen loading screen in game is :
...\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\ui\skins\JRR Skins collection\JRR CORE\misc\theater_top_bottom.tga

There is a second picture acting as frame of the loading progress bar, it is located in the same folder :
larger_overlay_silver_theater.tga


@Jethpriel
extended quest book issue introduced by lotro update 22.3

Thank you for warning me about the issue with the extended quest book panel, as I'm no more active in game, so I didn't knew about it.
Your code was on the very good way !
I've re balanced the location of many elements and applied it all the JRR skins v6.22.4
I cross fingers it will be as well balanced for english and german lotro clients that it is on mine french one


@Cygx
The default task panel is narrow

I totally agree the task panel quests list looks like a bad joke
In order to customize it, its default code has to be featured in the lotro skinning pack, which is not the case for every panel from the game.
And even when the code is there, it not very simple to recognize it among the numerous panel codes.
And I'm not sure it doesn't shares the code from another panel...
Anyway, I had a look in the skinning pack and did not found it, sorry
EDIT : It as been fixed in a lotro update : Now there is a handle to extend it on the fly

Task bulletins window?

Any way to widen the Task bulletins window?
It's just way too narrow most of the time.

Doesn't look like the skins have an entry for this window.

Thanks.
