Description
This is an updated edition of Compactbar, released for Riders of Rohan expansion (update 8).



Compactbar
by Rarehero






1. Features

Shrinks the toolbar, including the levelemeter while keeping its functionality
The only button left, next to the auto-attack indicator, now opens the start-menu
Fixes a small anomaly with the glass-overlay
Three different versions (check preview image)


2. Installation

Go to C:\Users\Your Username\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\ and create the folder UI. Open the folder an created the folder skins. These folders might exist already. The result should look like this: C:\Users\Your Username\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\UI\skins\
The download contains the folders Compactbar Standard, Compactbar Mininal and Compactbar Invisible. Copy these folders to C:\Users\Your Username\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\UI\skins\.
You'll have to modify the SkinDefintion.xml, if you play the game with a different resolution than 1680 x 1050. Each folder contains a SkinDefinition.xml with a detailed tutorial. Don't hesitate to ask for help, if you encounter any problems.
Start the game and the select desired skin. If the game doesn't show any available skins, you have copied the skins into the wrong folder structure
Relog (or restart the game if necessary) to make the changes work.


3. Comments

- Don't freak out, if your interface looks messy when you switch from "Compactbar" to any other skin. Just relog or restart your client.
- I know, that the "Minimal"- and "Invsible"-version could have been even smaller, but I didn't want you to relog or maybe even restart your client whenever you switch from version of the "Compactbar" to another. Therefore all three flavours have the same dimensions.

@ Rarehero

Hi and glad to know you back on Lotro

I think noone expected so many important changes on the mainbars (2 times rellocation of the side buttons, addition of the 6th bag, addition of the skills banks switching buttons).

I hope Turbine is done with the changes on it

Let me know if you want I remove this release in order to let you get the hand back, on your original page.

Thank you for taking care of my mod. I took a break from the game and didn't expect such a change to the main bar.

@ Goofras

Alt + tab should not induce any changes
However, switching windowed mode / fullscreen lead to positionning issues on custom toolbars like this one, this bug is caused by the poor way skins are handled by the lotro client.

Thx for the UI, its very clear and minimalistic. I've just seen a problem though. Once i go alt+tab or switchi to windowed resolution and back, the bars move to the right, if i do that again they move a little bit further on the right. Can u think about a possible reason for this behaviour?

@ Bastiat1

Hi,

<Element ID="ToolbarField" X="448" Y="1000" Width="1024" Height="200">

are the right values for 1920x1200 game resolution in full screen mode only, with 1.00 scale.

In windowed mode, the "y" value must be inferior, how much, I dunno, maybe 50 or 60 less.
And yes, in lotro option panel -> "UI Settings" tab, using of a toolbar scale different than 1.00 bypasses this Lotro bug introduced with Rohan expansion.

I really want to use this plugin because I prefer as minimal an interface as possible. I have it running and changed the ToolBarField to accomodate 1920x1200.

<Element ID="ToolbarField" X="448" Y="1000" Width="1024" Height="200">

For some reason the entire Main Bar (bottom bar), Menu Button (left) and the Toolbar Rotation Buttons (right) are all not clickable. Has anyone else had this problem that can offer some help?

Edit: Apparently there is a bug and if you have UI Settings / UI Scale / Toolbar set at 1.00. I changed the scale to 0.99 and it works fine. Thank you very much.

Hi,
you need to restart the whole game to see the changes made in the skindefinition.xml file.

Can't Seem to change my Toolbar

Hi! The Ui skin is almost perfect!
well i say almost, cause i went to my documents folder and try changing the position on the toolbar, my resolution is 1600 x 900, so i did the calculations and try changing the SkinDefinition.xml folder, saved it, and went i logged back in the game,
no changes! nothing changed, so tried it again a few times and realized that nothing changed on the position of the skin. whats wrong?
