Description
.
Extended and enhanced panels
And choose between default or less store buttons






Introduction :


Here is a collection of extended and enhanced panels codes gathered in two skindefinition files :

- The first one offers the E&E panels with the default ingame store buttons.
- The second one removes some of the most annoying/intrusive store buttons.

These custom panels are designed for high resolution screens (resolutions below 1024X768 are not supported, 1440X900 or higher is highly recommended).
These panels are the same than those embedded in JRR Skins Collection except the extended barter panel.

This release can be used as well as a skin to enjoy convenient enhancements within lotro's default themes (as a hero or as a monster player) or as well as a skin developing resource.
After installation and ingame selection of the skin on your character, you have to logout and relog to enjoy the new panels settings.




Step by step installation :

  • Download to your desktop the zip file hosted on this page.
  • Unpack) it (using windows right clicking unzipping embedded function, or with a dedicated software as 7zip (free software), Winzip, or Winrar...).
  • Once the zip file is unpacked on your desktop, check if the new created folder is called "ExtendedEnhancedPanels" or "ExtendedEnhancedPanels *something more*".
    if it is the longer name, double left click on it to enter the folder then you should be facing the right "ExtendedEnhancedPanels" folder.
  • Copy (or cut) it, then paste it in your ..\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\ui\skins\ folder.
    Tipycally, on windows vista and seven it looks like C:\ User(s) \ your account name \ documents \ The Lord of the Rings Online\ui\skins\
    on Windows XP, it should look like C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\ui\skins\
    If ui and/or skins (don't forget the *s*) folders don't exist, then create it, and then copy in it the ExtendedEnhancedPanels folder.
  • Now, the skin will be available in Lotro the next time run it !
  • To allocate the skin to one of your characters, log him/her, then open the ingame option panel ( *O* key)
    --> select UI settings tab --> go to "user current skin" and use the scrollable selection box to select Enhanced Panels.

  • The Zip file internal "path finder" folder structure has been removed to support LotrOnion requirements.
  • Installation : Download and install this release as usual. Future updates will be supported through LotrOnion. (manual updates will be of course still supported !).

Added components : - Transparent map tracker by Hazado - Larger Auction Panel v2.0.6 by Thrashfinger - Mail and vendor parts from "Firefern's Crafting, Vendor and Dressing Room" by Mirarkitty - VirtuesOrganized by Artificeren. - Map window from Eclipse UI, by Eclipse aka Shivega. - Custom Saruman rings, with a photoshop file to make your own if you want to. - Virtues Organized by artificeren v.1.0 - This Extended barter version doesn't cut any more the last displayed object, page up and down are moved to the right bottom to avoid trading with a missed click. - This Extended skirmish version doesn't cut the last displayed destination.

Re: Access features?

If you've properly installed the files, go to the UI Settings panel in the in-game Options. About 2/3 of the way down, there's an option to choose your Current User Skin. It should show up in that drop down. Note that you can only use one skin at a time. I believe you need to do this for each character individually, but I'm not 100% sure about that.

Expanded Bio panel

I've done the hacking on the SkinDefinition.xml files to make a bigger Inspect panel so that the Bio is usable. Adra, are you interested in having this to add to your package? I'd rather not try to fork it, but I want to get this out where RPers can get it.

Can't see any way to embed a picture, but you can see what it looks like here.

Not working as of U22

Just FYI, but I downloaded and installed this yesterday, and it seems to be not playing nicely with U22.

@Adameon

The deed log is a panel which is modified by the developers each time a region is added to the game, this would break the custom code very regularly,
in addition, the new source code should be available only when skinning pack update is released, which is a rare thing.
For these reasons the deed log won't benefit a larger edition in JRR skins.

Re: MAP

@Adameon

Hello, indeed the map size is not intended to be customized.
The map code from the skindefinition is just a tweak to make it appear at its original size.
It does not actually support customisations.
I tried some edits a few years ago and the results were not good.
On some resolutions, the map was displaying ok, but the coordinates reported from the cursor moving on it were wrong.
The best way to use this code is to use it as it (1024x768) or to simply remove it from the skindefinition.xml file to restore the default (full screen) map.

MAP

How can I change the size of the map?
I have tried editing both skinDefinitions files, saved and restart launcher but it doesn't work. The map has the size like the original .xml files although I changed it to 1920 x 1200.

................................
<!-- Map Window, by Eclipse -->
<PanelFile ID="ID_UISkin_MapPanel">
<Element ID="MapBackground" X="0" Y="0" Width="1920" Height="1200"> </Element>
</PanelFile>
<!-- End of Map Window -->

Re: Saruman rings

Sorry for the extra long answer delay

Saruman rings are a custom design of a progress indicator picture (the Saruman ring) for a specific boss fight, in the tower of Orthanc's raid.
The custom version included in this skin shows a numerical indication of the current stage of the fight in addition of the visual state of the ring.

@ Tangaar

Hi,
the plugin manager panel is, by default, resizeable on-the-fly with the mouse cursor.
Adding its code into a skin (for example to change its default size) would break its ability to be resized by user.

Indeed. thank you

Thank you @Adra! I tried to edit in a new value but apparently it doesn't work, so I'll comment out the section. Thanks for the prompt response

Hi,

In order to restore the fullscreen map, you have to manually edit the skindefinition.xml file located there :

...\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\ui\skins\Extended panels V3\_SkinDefinition\skindefinition.xml

or

...\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\ui\skins\ExtendedEnhancedPanels\_SkinDefini tion with less store buttons\skindefinition.xml

depending if you use E&E Panels with all or less store buttons option.

Open it with Notepad or any other text editor, then delete these lines (located at the half of the document) :

<!-- Map Window, by Eclipse -->
<PanelFile ID="ID_UISkin_MapPanel">
<Element ID="MapBackground" X="0" Y="0" Width="1024" Height="768"> </Element>
</PanelFile>
<!-- End of Map Window -->


Don't forget to save the file, still on .xml file format.

At the next lotro launch, the map will be restored to fullscreen.
