Extended and enhanced panels
with default or less store buttons as an option
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
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.
Extended and Enhanced Panels is supported by MMOUI Minion
update software. More informations HERE.
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 !
