Redefining the wrong art asset or XML file problem?

With the new art asset pack, I've been working on fixing my UI Skin. If you look at the picture, you will notice that the panel has a white border along the top. Unless I'm mistaken, I've identified the art asset as box_silver_upper_light. The problem I'm having is that I've remapped that asset to my own file, but when I log in it doesn't look like its being remapped. I've included the complete skin definition file.

1. Am I trying to redefine the correct art asset?

2. If so, then what am I doing wrong in the skin definition file?

One thing I did try was to link a non-existent file to see if I would get the missing art graphic (the white lines on a grey background). No success there, still got the white border.

Hi,

the fix for the panels is very simple

There are some new borders introduced, with "_min' at the end of their name.
Just link them to their "twin brothers" border files which have the same name without the "_min" at the end.
Of course don't delete the old ones, they are still used.


Code:
<Mapping ArtAssetID="box_silver_bottom_left_noadorn_min" 	FileName=""box_silver_bottom_left_noadorn.tga" />
<Mapping ArtAssetID="box_silver_bottom_min" 	 	 	 FileName="box_silver_bottom.tga" />
<Mapping ArtAssetID="box_silver_lower_right_noadorn_min" 	FileName="box_silver_lower_right_noadorn.tga" />
<Mapping ArtAssetID="box_silver_side_left_min" 	 	 	 etc...
<Mapping ArtAssetID="box_silver_side_right_min" 				
<Mapping ArtAssetID="box_silver_upper_left_noadorn_min" 		
<Mapping ArtAssetID="box_silver_upper_min" 					
<Mapping ArtAssetID="box_silver_upper_right_noadorn_min"
and link these two files to a blank file (transparent) :

Code:
<Mapping ArtAssetID="base_box_center_silver_gradient" 			
<Mapping ArtAssetID="mithril_popup_box_bg_wide"

I did not found the new stable master panel background picture, if someone got it, I'd be glad to know which filename it is

Adra,

The top line in your image seems to be in the same position as box_silver_upper.tga in my interface, but I don't find that file in the official skindef or files. It's very probably my error since I'm not good with removing unused files, but it seems to be displaying anyway. I don't know what to make of it. I only mention it in case you're desperate. Good luck. The line in my skindef:

<Mapping ArtAssetID="box_silver_upper" FileName="boxes/box_upper.tga"></Mapping>

oops I answered beside the question, I read too fast and thought it was the same than in the previous post ^^

I confirm it is box_silver_upper.tga or box_silver_upper_min.tga

don't forget to close and restart lotro to see ingame the changes made in the skindefinition file.

I can confirm that it is box_silver_upper.tga, and not box_silver_upper_min.tga.

One final thing (hopefully), does box_silver_side_right.tga, box_silver_side_right_light.tga, or box_silver_side_right_min.tga have any effect on the vault panel? Specifically the border area where the chest tabs connect to the side of the panel (see image for clarification.)?

No, this is the tab design itself.

I figured out how to fix that problem, mapped vault_ui_tab to my own vault_ui_tab.tga file.

Many, many thanks to everyone for your help it is greatly appreciated.
