Description
Info Blue skin for DDO
by Backley (rlowens@gmail.com)
version 1.8, released 09-Nov-2011

Based on:
- DDO.com Revised (http://www.lotrointerface.com/downloads/info341-DDO.comRevised.html) by TiranBlade
- ddolite (http://www.lotrointerface.com/downloads/info170-ddolite.html) by cyriana
- Cheat Sheet (http://ddosource.com/adventuring/cheat-sheet/) by Walt Snider
- Cosmos (http://www.lotrointerface.com/downloads/info359-Cosmos.html) by FeralKittie

Known bugs (that Turbine would have to fix, nothing I can do about these myself):
1. Clear XP bar doesn't update correctly sometimes, particularaly when you level-up. Use Alt+Z twice to hide and un-hide the UI to update the XP bar correctly.
2. Lots of the headers on the windows are sized wrong and/or positioned wrong, and some of the window borders are cut off.
3. The notes page via map->zoomout->stormreach sometimes gets rotated. Use M to close it and then open again. Please report this to Turbine if you can tell when this happens.

Design goals:
1. Minimal UI so I can see the action better.
2. As much information from the UI as possible.
3. Lose the gaudy gold/bronze as much as possible.

To install:
Under your My Documents/Dungeons and Dragons Online folder (where your Ctrl+P screenshots are saved), create a ui folder, then a skins folder under that. Then unzip Info Blue 1.7.zip into that folder.

You should end up with:
My Documents/Dungeons and Dragons Online/ui/skins/Info Blue/

with 870+ images in it. Restart DDO and pick the new skin from the bottom of the UI Settings tab in the Options window (Ctrl+O). Use Alt+Z twice to hide and un-hide the UI to get the transparent sections to display correctly (instead of showing the left-over parts from the skin you had selected before this one).

How to remove the keybinds for the DDO Store and MyDDO windows:
1. Open Options, Key Mapping.
2. Note 2 keys that you are using. I used W ("Move Forward") and S ("Move Backwards").
3. Set "DDO Store" to both of those keys: Click "DDO Store" in the Panels section, press W, click "DDO Store" again, press S.
4. Set "MyDDO Browser" to both of those keys: Click "MyDDO Browser" in the Panels section, press W, click "DDO Store" again, press S.
5. Set those 2 buttons back where they belong: Click "Move Forward" and press W, click "Move Backwards" and press S.
6. Close the Options window. Close the game. Backup your My Documents\Dungeons and Dragons Online\ddo.keymap file in case this ever stops working.
7. (optional) Repeat for any other default settings you want to remove.

FYI, this is what that does in my ddo.keymap file (don't know if you can just edit that directly for the same effect):

Yeah, sorry about the old screenshots there. I'll have to update them to match the current version. The party list and player vitals bars don't look like that any more.

Best to just try it really. If you dislike something in the current version after you see it, post and I'll tell you which image file to replace/edit if you want.

While the retaining of the active attack icon on the personal info bar is lovely, I think some more transitioning to the other components of the newer core UI updates would work out better. As well, I find the percentile marks, while handy on mobs, to be far too busy and irritatingly distracting on party members. Likewise, I find the hot-key shortcuts being visible on the hotbars to be similarly distracting and cluttering.

I've been putting off downloading the UI for quite a long time now due to those latter two elements, and I have to ask if there's a method [whether integrated or easily edited in the customization] to resolve those two elements, and if you're looking to update the UI to share more similarities with the new core UI?

1.7 released with changes to the party and player vitals bars.

Also added alignment info to the Notes page (Map, Zoom Out, click on Stormreach). Need updates/corrections. Please post here: http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=281467

Verify that the file you are downloading matches the version listed (so, for version 1.4b, make sure the file downloaded is "Info Blue 1.4.zip"). You may need to clear your browser cache.

Hi there
Firstly great effort and glad to see people are still making ddo skins.
Im using your skin at the moment with a few modifications. Mainly using Info Blue with a few little bits from fade2black. I have everything perfect now except for 1 thing. I would like to add the little "scratches" that appear on fade2blacks buttons such as the options menu buttons and death box button - fade2black's 3rd screenshot etc. I would love to know what those buttons file names are that add those scratches.

Are you going to make more skins in the future? I really hope so. I Have been enjoying your skin for several days now and its a welcome break from DDO's whitebread skin. A skin for example that has crackling lightning edges would be awesome hint hint :P

Thank you in advance

Thanks. I found the files and sizes on my own, but recently found that Rodrak on the DDO forums has posted an extract of UI files that includes the originals if you want to start from those.
Thanks! had to download 7Zip to extract the files but I should be able to work more with this!

I have to say that is a nice and interesting concept. It looks like you've figured out the issue with which script is for the title bar. I'll download and see which script your using for it.

Nice job and Well Done!!
