SmallBar

An addon for
JRR











About this add-on :


This is the JRR edition of the popular SmallBar quickslot toolbar, updated, improved, and included in the JRR main theme.

In order to simplify the installation until the last step, by avoiding you to have to manually edit the skin code, this add-on includes several pre-made profiles corresponding to the different custom screen resolutions settings you could run.

To allocate a function to a button, open the option panel -> UI settings (top of the page).
Active button slots on toolbar are : left 1 to 7 (= all), right 1 to 4. (right buttons 5 to 8 are not displayed).




Installation instructions :


- Step 0 : As a simple JRR addon, it requires you have JRR Skins Collection installed



- Step 1 : Download the file, then unpack it on your desktop.



- Step 2 : Do you know your LOTRO client's display resolution ?
  • If yes, you can jump to step 3
  • If you ignore it, just open the option panel in LOTRO and select the first tab called "graphic" as shown on the picture below :

  • If you play in full screen mode, note your corresponding resolution. (For optimal picture quality, it should be equal to your native screen's resolution.)
  • If you play in window mode, note your corresponding resolution.
  • If your resolution is already 1920x1200, Jump to step 4



- Step 3 : Your LOTRO display resolution IS NOT 1920x1200 pixels, so you need to manually edit the skindefinition.xml files present in the folder you unpacked,
within sub folders called _SmallBar default, _SmallBar alternate vitals and _SmallBar No extended panels. There is 1 skindefinition.xml per folder.

To edit a skindefinition.xml file, open it with Window's Notepad, Notepad++ (it's a freeware) or any else text editor.
Don't panic ! You'll just have to modify 2 numbers near the beginning of the text The needed explanations about how to proceed are logged into the skindefinition.xml file.



- Step 4 : Your skindefinition.xml files are set for your own resolution.
  • Copy the "JRR addon - SmallBar" folder in your "my documents" --> "The Lord of the Rings Online" (this is where your LOTRO screenshots are located) --> "ui" (not in capitals) --> "skins" (plural), create these sub-folder if they don't already exist.
  • When done, it should look like :
  • Exit LOTRO client if it is running, then (re)launch LOTRO.
  • Log on the character onto you want to apply the _JRR SmallBar or the two others profiles. Select the theme from the panel menu --> UI Settings, as shown on the picture below.

  • In order to be displayed at the correct position, it requires you have the toolbar's default size defined in the option panel, as follow :

  • logout (character selection menu) then come back into the game.
  • You're done with install



How to use "_JRR SmallBar No-Ext" and "_JRR SmallBar Alt.Vitals"special profiles :

  • "_JRR SmallBar No-Ext" is a special profile dedicated to low resolutions screens. On this profile, no panel is extended.
  • "_JRR SmallBar Alt.Vitals" displays alternate player/opponent vitals copied from B.G.M 5. The player vitals don't show its level. The player/opponent vitals can be placed closer to the bottom of the screen than standard vitals.



Converting this add-on into a standalone release, a child's play !


To enjoy this SmallBar release, you first need to download and install JRR Skins collection, then the SmallBar file available for download on this page.
But if you think "I just want to use SmallBar, I don't care the JRR other skins, I don't want to waste some space on my hard disk with all that crap..."
I answer you "There's no problem !" Indeed, each JRR skin is built as an add-on, so the whole JRR pack is modular !
In the facts, this means :
- Once JRR main pack and the SmallBar addon are installed on your computer, open the "JRR Skins collection" folder, it is located there : "...Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/ui/skins/"
- Inside this "JRR Skins collection" folder, delete all the folders present, except JRR CORE.
- You're done !
You can go even deeper in the customization way by deleting, in the "JRR addon - SmallBar" folder, the toolbar profiles folder(s) you don't want to display any more in the Lotro's skin choice menu !




FAQ and Known issues :


- I just installed JRR and SmallBar 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.

- I just installed the last version of this SmallBar release and selected it on my character, but some panels backgrounds or other elements are replaced by a light gray frame
If only a few elements are grayed, this can be a error from my side (indicating a wrong location of a file in the skin). Don't hesitate to report me this kind of issues.
If a big amount of gray frames occurs, first ensure you installed the JRR skins pack at the right location on your hard drive, then ensure you installed the "JRR addon - SmallBar" folder side by side with the "JRR Skins collection" folder.
(This is the new location for addons folders since JRR v4.0)

- My bags have no more borders neither their title bar with the big bag icon.
This is not a bug, this is a skinning choice.
If you consider this disappointing, not handy or ugly, you can use a bags replacement plugin, as HugeBag, it is amazingly convenient and good looking !
Advanced users can choose to revert it by deleting the whole "Ultra Mini-packs" section in the skindefintion.mxl file of every skin they wanna fix, and repeat this operation after every SmallBar update.

- The map is no more full screen !
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 the used skin(s) profile(s), and repeat this operation after every SmallBar update.

- My character doesn't show in the dress room !
JRR skins 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 full screen mode to get the dress room correctly displaying the character.
Higher resolutions allow to play indifferently in full screen or windowed modes.
The special profile SmallBar No-ext allow to play with resolution equal or lower than 768 pixels height, in both windowed or full screen modes.
This profiles has all extended panels disabled.

- 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 full screen mode to get the auction house panel entirely displayed and usable.
Higher resolutions allow to play indifferently in full screen or windowed modes.
The special profile SmallBar No-ext allow to play with lowest resolution in both windowed or full screen modes, it has all extended panels disabled.

"Toolbar buttons don't push"
Since Rohan, Turbine bugged the toolbar code, then you now have to edit the "Y" value of the toolbar code in addition of its "X" value.
All needed explanations about what to do are logged into the skindefinition.xml files.
These files are located in the SmallBar skins profiles folders.
You can open and edit them with Window's Wordpad or any else text editor software.
I you play in window mode or switch between window mode and full screen 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).



Credits :


SmallBar is an original creation of MrJackdaw, here is the homepage of the original release http://www.lotrointerface.com/downloads/info336

@ Pam

Hi, yes it is possible, and not even highly complicated

Make a copy of your durin's folk folder, give it the name you want, but locate it in the usual "JRR Skins collection" folder.
In your new skin folder there are 4 profiles folders from durins folk, you should delete the 3 you won't use, then delete the both remaining "toolbar" folders (in main folder and beside the xml file).

Now import the "toolbar" folder from smallbar in your new skin main folder (not beside the xml file).

Open the xml file of the new skin, delete the top of the old durin's folk text (name, etc) and replace it by the text from "Smallbar default" fodler's xml file.
Copy-paste it from the beginning until "<!-- end of custom toolbar part -->"

Old duplicate ArtAssetID from durins folk (toolbar elements including the menu) should be ignored by lotro, as it only considers the first one it reads in the skindefinition.xml file.
But if you delete duplicate entries, its is cleaner

Don't forget to change the <SkinName Name="

Now if you want to turn it into a standalone skin, delete all the folders from "JRR Skins collection" folder (you can also rename it) except your new skin folder and "JRR CORE" (don't rename it, it contains all the shared files from the JRR skins).

Hi there!

Is it possible to combine this with the Durin's folk theme? I tried moving the skin folders and editing some stuff on the .xml but most of the window backgrounds, quest log/cosmetic etc, have white and blue checkered textures.

Unfortunately it's not possible (or it is very well hidden ^^).
The source code provided for UI skinning doesn't include any adjustable value about fonts.

So, ask this question to Turbine

Ok just an observation. Is it possible to reduce the font by 1 size on the XP bar? We're in the 10's of millions now and the last digit is being cut off by the buttons.

When Rohan will be live, you will have to set the toolbar position something like 25 pixels to the left of you usual setting to see the up and down arrows located at the right of the toolbar.

You can also choose to keep your usual corner location, meaning having the up/down buttons outside the screen and change the skills banks through a key shortcut.

If you want to "cut" the toolbar to make it look like the previous versions, set the width of <Element ID="ToolbarField" to 420

Great, thanks for the info. I'm excited! 3 days!!!

SWEET, thanks alot. I like to zoom in real close on my toons so I prefer my toolbar to be in the bottom right corner of the screen. Smallbar is perfect for this setup.
