Short introduction :


"One pack of skins to gather them all, One pack of skins to fix them,
One pack to update them all, and in LotRO enjoy them."



JRR (like Tolkien) stands for "Jack's RedPin Revisited".

JRR is, first of all, a complete theme designed for today's high resolution screens.

It also offers you to enjoy a collection of legacy/tribute themes, updated and revisited !

There are currently 28 themes and sub-themes included in the main download ! And you can download two add-ons !


- The theme JRR A is a minimal dark glass theme, inspired and built with many Brygard's B.G.M elements.
- The theme JRR B offers a bit more transparency on the auto-attack button, the system buttons located at the left and the right of the toolbar are turned invisible.
- The theme JRR C has a minimalistic main bar. Auto-attack button is a bit more translucent. XP bar is turned invisible. All system buttons are set invisible, except when passing the mouse over them.



Last but not least, the JRR skin collection is entirely modular :
Every skin folder is considered as an addon and is independent from the other ones. This means each main skin folder can be deleted from the pack or modified without affecting the other skins.
Every skin folder interacts with no other folder than "JRR CORE" folder. This folder contains the common files for all the JRR skins (this is the only folder which must not be deleted to get the skins working).
This makes easy for anyone to freely publish a new skin, a patched or customized edition of a skin, ready to plug in JRR, in addition or as replacement of existing skin(s).

This also means, as a simple user, you can reduce the number of skins embedded in the pack in just a few seconds, by simply deleting any skin folder you don't want to be featured any more !
For this, open the JRR main folder, it is located there : "...Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\ui\skins\JRR Skins collection\"
Inside this "JRR Skins collection" folder, delete any folder corresponding to the skins you want to remove from the pack, and you're done, that's as simple as it
Notice : Just don't remove the folder named "JRR CORE".







Story of this project :


When I looked at lotrointerface.com for the first time, unfortunately it was after the f2p update.
Turbine had not released any skinning pack resource since years then almost all of the themes I wanted to test were partially damaged by LOTRO changes introduced updates after updates, and the authors seemed having discontinued their development for the reasons above

The "Jack's RedPinUI" v1.0 seemed to be the only one which had the base UI I was looking for, and which had not suffered a lot of damages, so in march 2011, I started using it and to customize it, step by step.

The purpose of this project was, in the first time, only to adapt the original work to the design I was looking for :

Some convenient customizations, as extended panels, designed for high resolution screens.
The basic interface features, as bags, vital bars and minimap have a minimalist design in order to preserve a clear view.

In a second time, one or two month later, I still had in mind the numerous bugged or outdated great themes I downloaded when I browsed LotroInterface. I wanted to be able to run them in game as well as if they were updated yesterday !
That's how came the idea to display their toolbar as tribute add-on within the JRR common interface, and this was precisely the purpose of the first release of JRR published in July 2011.

In a third time, on JRR v2, since I was more familiar with skin coding, I decided to deliver full versions of some skins, freely adapted for a JRR edition.
This means if you like a JRR theme, you could prefer (or not) its original release. It's only a matter of taste.







Requirements :


A minimal resolution of 1024 pixels width and 768 pixels height is required, 1440X900 or higher is highly recommended.

If you are below 1024 pixels width and/or 768 pixels height, you can still enjoy the JRR SmallBar add-on by selecting its "_JRR Small_No-Ext" special profile. On it, every panels has Lotro's default size.

If you're not familiar with themes installation :


- Download and unpack the .ZIP file on your desktop (with Windows, 7-zip (freeware) or Winrar ) then copy the folder named "JRR Skins collection" in "(My) Documents" --> "The Lord of the Rings Online" --> "UI" --> "skins"
If UI and/or skins folders don't exist, create it.
Usually the path is C:\User(s)\*your account name*\documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\UI\skins\ (It is the same folder that contains your LOTRO screenshots.)

When done, if you have also installed JRR addons, the folders location and their organization should be :


Inside the JRR folder, it should look like this :


- If your LOTRO client is running, close it and restart it.

- Open LOTRO option panel, then select "ui settings", miscellaneous section, and look at the first line, user current skin ("user's interface appearance" in French).
Use the select menu to choose one of the themes. (As shown on the picture below)


(click to enlarge)

After you selected a JRR theme, you have to logout (switch to the character selection menu) to apply the new correct parameters. After that you can go back into the game and enjoy all JRR features.
Except " Monsters Lair *short* " and "Delving Hills *Short* ", which both have custom toolbar settings", all the themes featured in the main download share the same panels settings. This means once your character has applied these settings a first time (by logout then login back), you can freely switch between the main download themes and fully enjoy it without having to to perform another logout / login back. (except for the 2 skins mentioned above).







Panels enhancements included in each JRR skin :


- A taller dressing room
- A taller barter panel
- A taller quest log
- A taller auction Panel
- A taller mail panel
- A taller vendor panel
- A taller crafting panel, with localization fixes
- A taller legacy extraction panel
- A taller legendary item dismantling result window
- A taller master loot window (20 items max instead of 10)
- A taller panel displayed when applying an item (scroll, crystal, xp...) on a legendary Item. Displays 8 LI instead of 6 by default.
- A taller enemies tracking panel. Displays 20 names at once instead of 8 by default.
- A taller inspect panel.
- A more compact connection Status icon.
- Numerical PVP rank icons
- A (smaller) windowed map, actually displayed at its real size (no more zooming blur)
- Custom Saruman rings
- Less annoying store buttons within various panels

. . . Store buttons removed :
  • Character panel : Equipment tab (enhance) & Appearance tab (buy outfits) buttons
  • "circle" virtues panel : The "buy virtue +1" overlay icon is set invisible but still functional.
  • Destiny barter
  • Extended Crafting Panel : buy recipes / buy mats / accelerate buttons
  • Relic Master panel









FAQ and Known issues :


- I just installed JRR and selected one of the skins on my character, some panels are displayed in a strange manner, like upside down.
Logout then login back, this is a necessary step to apply the new custom panel settings.
Once you did it, and since you stay on JRR universal toolbar skins, you will be able to switch from a skin to another one without having to logout again.
All the skins included in the main JRR pack are universal toolbar skins, except Delving Hills short and Monsters Lair short.

- I installed a JRR addon and selected it on my character, but some panels backgrounds or other elements are replaced by a light grey frame
If only a few elements are greyed (meaning file not found at the indicated location), this can be a error from my side. Don't hesitate to report me this kind of issues.
If a big amount of grey frames occurs, first ensure you installed the pack of skins at the right location on your hard drive, then ensure you installed the optional addon folders side by side with the "JRR Skins collection" folder.
"JRR skins collection" folder must not be renamed and must be directly placed at the right place, not inside another custom/unpacking folder, if not, optional addons won't work and show only grey frames.
Optional addons folders must be located outside JRR skins collection folder, and placed just beside it.

- How do I uninstall a skin from my computer ?
Simply delete the skin folder you had previously copied onto your from your hard drive (I mean in ...Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\ui\skins\ folder), that's all.

- The map is no more fullscreen !
This is not a bug, this is a skinning choice, it is really convenient in some situations, and on multi screen systems.
In fact this displays the map in this actual size, without the zooming blur.
Advanced users can revert it by deleting the "Map Window" section in the skindefintion.mxl file of every skin they wanna fix, and repeat this operation after every JRR update.

- On delving Hills short / Monsters Lair short / BGM Opaque Short, my toolbar is not centered or its buttons cannot be clicked.
These particular profiles require the user to edit the corresponding skindefinition.xml file to position the toolbar depending its game resolution.
All required informations about how to proceed are logged into their skindefinition.xml file. Open it with any text editor, like Wordpad or Notepad.
I you play in window mode or switch between window mode and fullscreen mode, you can bypass the "Y" issue by simply setting the toolbar scale to a value different than 1.00 ( in lotro option panel -> UI settings tab) (0.99 or 1.01 is ok).
On windows 7, you can switch to the windows desktop without pressing Alt+Enter to switch into windowed mode. For this, press ctrl+alt+F12 then "task manager".

- My character doesn't show in the dressroom !
JRR skins collection doesn't supports resolutions with a height below 768 pixels.
If you run Lotro with a resolution height equal to 768, you have to play in fullscreen mode to get the dressroom correctly displaying the character.
Higher resolutions allow to play indifferently in fullscreen or windowed modes.

- The auction house panel is too big !
Your screen is too small ! ^^
If you run Lotro with a resolution height equal to 768, you have to play in fullscreen mode to get the auction house panel entirely displayed and usable.
Higher resolutions allow to play indifferently in fullscreen or windowed modes.

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

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.

Update!

Found a solution.
S:\Dokuments\The Lord of the Rings Online\ui\skins\JRR Skins collection\# Eorlingas #\_ Large toolbar

File: SkinDefinition edit
Search for:
<Element ID="Quest_ShowCompleted" X="68" Y="62" Width="10" Height="10"> </Element>

Changed X to 178

<Element ID="Quest_ShowCompletedText" X="74" Y="57" Width="180" Height="20"> </Element>

Changed X to 180

Don't know if that is the right way, but it is working

Thanks for the update! I tried this fix for the JappMe *short* UI skin and it worked great!

JappMe Short

Hi there!

I love this compilation, great work!! I have installed the latest version and have been trying out the different themes. I think I like the JappMe *short* one the best.

I have a question about the JappMe *Short*. When I use this one I see a couple of issues with it and I'm not sure if it is me or the mod itself.

1. The "hidden" button icons along the bottom left and right that are in the *large* version are still there and clickable, just invisible. There is also a stand alone icon for the filtering (alt+R) sitting to the left of the backpack all by itself. I assume this is the only one visible because it is a fairly new feature?

2. The menu arrow on the left works fine but the icons for each category are missing and just showing a strange image.

3. The backpack on the left by the combat/pip when clicked opens the lotro store. There is also a lotro store chest/coin icon on the far right end by the exp bar that seems really out of place. I'm guessing the backpack should open the inventory and the chest should open the store?

If it is me please let me know. I'm not sure how to do much when it comes to custom UI's but I can give it a try if need be.

Thank you for the wonderful collection of skins

@ Jae Onasi

- In BGM theme the almost invisible cross when the mouse is not over it is a skinning choice, but you can easily replace it by a more standard cross, for this :
create a copy of the file named titlebar_X_2_mouseover.tga located in the folder JRR Skins collection\# BGM #\opaque\
Then rename the copied file as titlebar_X_2.tga and then replace the original titlebar_X_2.tga file with it and you're done.

- In Monster Lair theme folder, the file center_silver.tga is located in "basebox" folder.
Border files names also contains the words upper/lower/side.
you can, for example replace center_silver.tga by the one from BGM opaque located there :
JRR Skins collection\# BGM #\opaque\base_box_center_silver.tga.
copy it, rename it center_silver.tga and replace the file in
JRR Skins collection\# Monsters Lair #\basebox
You're done. The borders of the panel will remain a bit translucent but the center will be perfectly opaque.

@ Myrthian

Well done
Tweaking skin is an interesting experience

Many thanks for this, Adra.

I had basically the same question as Myrthian but with regards to the Monsters Lair skin. I too would like a solid black background for all my windows as the translucent type causes some difficulty for me as I have vision issues. I've tried the B.G.M. "Opaque" but the issue with that is the 'x' to close windows becomes almost invisible for me unless I mouse over it.

If you could point me to the right files I would need to modify I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks again for all your hard work.

Thanks Adra.
I've messed around with them and I'm quite pleased with the result: no more brown-ish backgrounds and instead a clean black one.

As I've really enjoyed my short editing session I might even tinker more with it.

Version 6.22.1 - April 02 2018

- Renamed " _Erebor ..." theme profiles to " Erebor ..."
- Redesigned the travel to instance button

I've updated most of the screenshots on the download page.

Version 6.22 - April 01 2018

- JRR Erebor theme is no more an addon and is now a part of the main JRR pack, porting to 28 the number of themes and variations included in the main pack !
If you had the Erebor theme previously installed, please delete its old installation folder to avoid conflict with the new one.

- Delving Hills theme have now a third toolbar profile.
- Based on the Update 22 skinning pack, many icons are recolored (no more blue based).
- A few portraits have been enhanced.
- 2 loading screens have been changed.
- A few enhancements in Monsters Lair theme.
- Some other changes and enhancements here and there.


A new toolbar profile, based on the default blue Lotro toolbar : JRR - Delving Hills *Large II*




@ Myrthian
Hi and sorry for the late answer, I didn't saw your question before.
The files you need to edit to change the background color are located in the sub folder of delving hills named "silver".
the center of the background and its borders are separate files.
the center is named center_silver.tga
The borders are upper/lower/side/bottom beginning files.

@ Jae Onasi
Hi, and you're welcome.
Lotro is able to find the skins folders locations, no matter the depth of the tree path, same thing for the name of the folder(s) containing the skins.
Nevertheless, optional skin addons like "greyskin" or "smallbar" won't work correctly is the tree pathing and naming aren't exact.

Thanks for all the work on these lovely skins!

I had trouble getting them to work at first. I had to copy the files from the JRR skins folder up one level into the skins folder itself, then it worked fine. I just wanted to let you know in case some others had a bit of trouble getting it to work.

I also found I had to scroll way down in my UI options to find the option in game to change the skins.

Beautiful work and thank you for keeping up with this. I've just come back to the game after a long time, and it's nice to see all these interface plug ins and skins.

Is there a way to edit the default background color of all windows when using the Delving Hills short skin?

I'd like to go for a black background for a nice contrast.
