JRR Azure Glass

Now delivered as a standalone










Latest update :


Version 4.13 - May 01 2014
- This update only consists into a customization of the 4 new bags greyed icons introduced in Update 13.


Older release notes are logged here.



Introduction :


This Azure Glass release offers you an updated and improved edition of the popular original skin Azure Glass, created by Enfield.



Choose between the 7 toolbars at your disposal :


JRR Azure Glass features several profiles named "universal" "1x1", "1x2", "2x2", "3x2" and "Basic".
The only difference between these "profiles" is a different main toolbar, as shown below (captions aren't real size) :


- The skin "_JRR Azure Glass *Universal*" allows you to freely place additional quickslot bars (1 to 5) in the same way than the lotro default skin does.
This is the only profile which not requires to manually edit the skindefinition.xml file to center the toolbar depending your display resolution.



- The skin "_JRR Azure Glass 1x1 BGM" allows you to freely stack one column of quickslot bars in the same way that most of the skins do.
On this profile, the system buttons don't appear on the toolbar.



- The skin "_JRR Azure Glass 1x1" allows you to freely stack one column of quickslot bars in the same way that most of the skins do.



- The skin "_JRR Azure Glass 1x2" allows you to place 2 quickslot bars within the main toolbar frame. (The default one plus quickslot bar 1)



- The skin "_JRR Azure Glass 2x2" allows you to place 4 quickslot bars within the main toolbar frame. (The default one plus quickslot bars 1 to 3)



- The skin "_JRR Azure Glass 3x2" allows you to place 6 quickslot bars within the main toolbar frame. (The default one plus quickslot bars 1 to 5)



- The skin "_JRR Azure Glass *Basic*" allows you to freely stack 2 columns of quicklsot bars side by side.
As the other azure glass bars, it can display the small rune keeper's attunement bar. (based on Multibar Clean toolbar)
The lotro store button has been removed from this toolbar, to accessed the ingame shop panel, just press simultaneously the keys [MAJ] and [S],
or allocate yourself its FX button on the toolbar via the option menu --> UI settings tab.







Rune keeper's small attunement meter :

Azure Glass supports mini attunement display, within the main bar, in the same place than champion's fervor.



To enable this feature, open LotRO's option panel -> "UI settings" tab -> "Attunement panel size" (a select box a bit under the skin selection select box) -> set it to "small".






Installation instructions :



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



- Step 2 : Do you know which is your LOTRO client's display resolution ? (if you play in full screen, it should be your native screen's 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 fullscreen mode, note your corresponding resolution (the first is the width, the second is the height).
  • If you play in window mode, note your corresponding resolution, then open the Lotro option panel, select UI settings tab and set the toolbars scale to any value other than 1.00 (0.99 is ok).
  • If your resolution is already 2560x1440 Jump to step 4



- Step 3 : Your LOTRO display resolution IS NOT 2560x1440 pixels, so you need to manually edit the skindefinition.xml files present in the folder you unpacked.
They are located in the sub folders named _Basic toolbar, _Universal toolbar, 1x1 toolbar, 1x2 toolbar, 2x2 toolbar and 3x2 toolbar.
Edit each skindefinition.xml file corresponding to the profile(s) you plan to use.
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 what to do there are logged in the skindefinition.xml file.
Read well, the number isn't the same for all the profiles.


- Step 4 : Your skindefinition.xml files are set to fit your personal resolution.
  • - Copy the "JRR AzureGlass" folder in your "my documents" --> "The Lord of the Rings Online" (this is where your LOTRO sreenshots are located) --> "UI" --> "skins" (plural) folder.
    If UI and/or skins folders don't exist, create it.
  • Exit LOTRO client if it is running, then (re)launch LOTRO.
  • Log on the character onto you want to apply the _JRR Azure**** 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 :




- Step 5 : Once you have selected the skin/profile you want for your character, you have to logout then login back to get the new custom parameters applied.

- Step 6 : Concerning the quickslot bars (12 slots each), the skin parameters can handle only the default one, the other quickslot bars must be positioned by the user.

If you don't how how to proceed :

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 !









FAQ and known issues :


When using toolbar profiles 1x2, 2x2 or 3x2 profiles, after character has loaded, the quickslot bar 3 (and only this one) looks greyed, because it has "fallen" to the background of the toolbar !
This is a lotro client issue, it is visual only, everything still works ! It occurs wherever the quiclslot 3 is located on the toolbar.
Fortunately, clicking on any slot of this bar brings it back to the front for all the duration of your game session.
- If you're using the 1x2 or 2x2 toolbar profile, this issue can be avoid by simply replacing the quicklot bar 3 by quickslots 4 or 5 in your toolbar.
- For the 3x2 toolbar profile, you can replace the quickslot bar 3 by another one created with Tonicbars or any other slot bar managing plugin.

- I just installed Azure Glass 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 Azure Glass release and selected it on my character, but some panels backgrounds or other elements are replaced by a light-grey frame
If only a few elements are greyed, this can be an error from my side (indicating a wrong location of a file in the skin). Don't hesitate to report me this kind of issues.

- 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 Azure Glass update.

- The map is no more fullscreen !
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 its 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 Azure Glass update.

- My character doesn't show in the dressroom !
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 fullscreen mode to get the dressroom correctly displaying the character.
Higher resolutions allow to play indifferently in fullscreen 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 fullscreen mode to get the auction house panel entirely displayed and usable.
Higher resolutions allow to play indifferently in fullscreen or windowed modes.

"Toolbars 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 addidition of its "X" value.
All needed explanations about what to do are logged into the skindefinition.xml files.
These files are located in the Azure Glass skins profiles folders.
You can open and edit them with Window's Wordap or any else texte editor software.
I you play in window mode or switch between window mode and fulscreen 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).

@ Koios

Hi, I'm not playing Lotro anymore, and I don't plan to work on new content to add in the skins.

For the buttons from the main bar, just read "Toolbars buttons don't push" in the FAQ.

I'm very impressed by what you've done with this skin! I've used Brygard's BGM Blue for years now, but it looks like I may switch. One of the things I'd really love to see is a 'raised' BGM bar, that can include (up to?) 3 or 4 quickslot bars stacked on top of each other, so that, like for many people who play with bars stacked rather than next to each other, I can keep using quickslots as I'm used to doing but still enjoy the sleekness of having them encapsuled by the UI. Just my 2 cents

Either way, I've installed the current version and am definitely switching for now, as soon as servers are back up.

[EDIT]: By now I had a change to log on and I'm afraid I have a bug to report. I set up the bar precisely as explained, but the skills on the bar are not clickable. The extra bars are, but not the main one. Only the skills that were already on there remained there, but weren't clickable, nor could I (re)move them or add others. So for now I've switched back. Shame.

Thank you for taking the time to update this skin. Its the only skin that I've used for several years and tbh, if you ever do drop it (or Turbine renders it unusable due to their lack of "updated art" support) then I'll just revert back to the default UI. So thank you very much for updating.

@ Fraz

Hi, sorry for the (very) long delay.
I encountered freezes too when items were added into my inventory or into a fellow's inventory.
This issue is caused by some plugins, not by skins.

@ 2Bor-not2B

Hi,

In order to work on these new panels, their code must be published by Turbine in a "skinning pack update". No such pack has been released for Update 13 yet.

Just wondering if you might have a fix in the works for the new mail panel. I don't think you can do anything with the bags now but I don't mind them as much as I do the new mail panel(s). Anyway thanks for all the updates to the skin(s) you do.

Thanks for the fix for the vitals. I thought the vitals looked a little off but I don't pay a lot of attention to them most of the time.. But after I saw the fix I started paying attention and man were they way off. Anyway thanks.

@ Adra

I'll play around with setting them to 1 in the xml then. Cheers.

edit: works great, just what I was looking for.

One thing, my crafting tab still drops fps often. I assume this is mostly due to just the shear amount of recipes and items it has to load, and is "built in" to the game. However, it doesn't seem consistent. After crafting an item, usually only single items like Guild crests/patterns/etc it will freeze frame while it loads into my inventory. I don't seem to get things like this when crafting without any UI applied, or on a new character. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Hi and thanks for the feedback.
The only way to completely disable the icons is to edit the xml file and set width=1 height=1 for each button you want to make disappear.
For the wallet and the scroll bar issue, I don't know neither what fixed it since Turbine release a patch the same day than mine.
The essential point for everyone is it's now fixed

Thank you so much for being quick on this! This site isn't kept up to date on many of the plugins I use, and this was great! The off-center thing on the portrait was noticeable right away and rather annoying. Also, the ability to hide icons now is what I've been wanting for awhile. Though they are still there and clickable, it is fine. Is there no way to actually disable them and this is what you resorted too? (possible to remove the other buttons as well through the xml, like the combat button, etc?)

My wallet and skill scroll bars are now fluid and no longer lag, not exactly sure what was up before but it is excellent.

Been using this UI (3x2) for a very long time though I have not posted anything, thought it was about time I said something.
Thanks again.

Azure Glass V.4.11b released - hotfix for U12.1

- Fixed the bug on the opponent portrait, introduced by Lotro update 12.1.
- On Azure Glass 1x1 / 1x2 / 2x2 / 3x2 "Hobbies" button is now turned invisible, allowing users to assign it in the toolbar to obtain a "blank" slot and get a cleaner toolbar, like on this example :

@ Bobtheclown

Hi, I'm wondering the same question

Unfortunately, there can't be a Helm's Deep release of the skins until someone from Turbine decides to publish the Helm's deep update of the Lotro skinning pack

@ swordofthedark@live.com

Hi, the skindefinition.xml file moves only the toolbar.
The quickslots bars can be manually moved ingame by the user.
Look at installation Step 6 for further details.

Hi Adra, this looks like a really nice skin and I'm looking forward to using it, however I'm hitting a bit of a snag when I use it.

I want to use the basic version right now, so I changed the skindefinition.xml files for a resolution of 1600x900. I logged out, and then relogged in. My quickslot bar one is located on the far left of the toolbar and quickslots 2-4 are now way to the right of that and it doesn't line up.

Might I have done something wrong?

Thanks in advance!
