Greyskin

An addon for JRR








Introduction :


This addon features two themes, each one consists of a compact toolbar integrated in JRR's main theme.
The featured grey toolbar is a revival of the GreySkin UI's toolbar.
The black edition is a JRR bonus.




JRR - Greyskin



JRR - Greyskin Black edition






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 _Black toolbar and _Grey Toolbar. 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 - GreySkin" 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 GreySkin *Grey* or the _JRR GreySkin *Black* profile. 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




Moving the UI skill bars to align it with toolbar slots :

A couple of people are unfamiliar with moving the UI bars to align with the skin and Caldric's directions are perfect for it:

To do so, once you replace the skin, you want to follow these steps:

1) Open your Option menu
2) Go to "UI Settings"
3) Go to "Quickslot Bars"
4) Select the Bar you wish to use (1-5)
5) On that Bar, check "Always Show" and make sure it's not docked
6) Add an Ability to that bar (for alignment purposes)
7) Use " Ctrl + * " or " Ctrl + \ " to unlock your UI
8) Drag the Quickslot Bar into the Bottom Bar graphic and align it
9) Lock your UI (" Ctrl + * " or " Ctrl + \ ") and you're ready to go !




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


To enjoy this release of GreySkin, you first need to download and install JRR Skins collection, then the GreySkin file available for download on this page.
But if you think "I just want to use GreySkin, 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 GreySkin 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 !

Based on the toolbar from "GreySkin UI" v.4, by Maximoz.




FAQ and Known issues :



- I just installed JRR and Greyskin 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 GreySkin 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 greyed, 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 - GreySkin" 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 Greyskin 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 Greyskin 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 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.


"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 Greyskin skins profiles folders (gray and black).
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).

@ Onattie

Hi, and thanks for the kind comment.
The dress room embedded with Greyskin is the same than with the others JRR skins.
The issue you describe usually occurs when the height of the screen is inferior to the height of the dress room (760 pixels).
Have you recently switched on a laptop ? ^^

Make sure you're running the game at the maximum resolution allowed by your screen :


(click to enlarge)

If you're running 1366x768 make sure to play in full screen, else you have not enough height available in the Lotro Window.

For low resolution screens, you can use JRR SmallBar addon on "SmallBar No-ext" special profile, which has no extended panels.

No dressing room

I was expecting one of those wonderful dressing rooms that comes with all your skins but this one is empty. Just a box and all of the proper buttons for custom dye and such. There is no character inside of the box. I've had a couple others lately the same. I must have something wrong. Other than that everything seems wonderful. Good job as usual.
