AssetBrowser v2.4
 
Description
Hello,

Here's a tool that will hopefully help aspiring Plugin writers to beautify their creations, using the built-in graphics in the game rather than having to make your own, or screencap them.

This plugin allows you to browse (apparently) all of the images in the game that it is possible for you to use without crashing the client. [As of 5/16/2013, this includes about 200,000 images, but excludes roughly 180,000 images that are compressed DDS.]

If you have a slow computer, it may take a few seconds to load.

In the future, I might add the ability to specify the background color, blending modes, and stretch mode for rendering the images.

Have fun,
Thurallor

Tips, Notes, Caveats:
  • In grid mode, left-clicking on an image will recenter the grid on that image.
  • You can right-click on an image to see its asset ID.
  • It seems that it is possible to crash the client by running out of some unknown resource, when using a large grid size, with large, scaled images.
Revision History:
  • v3.10 (3/28/2018): Added some new display options, accessible by a new "Render..." menu at the bottom of the window.
  • v3.09 (3/8/2018): Added the new images from Update 22.0.
  • v3.08 (12/27/2017): Included some required files that I inadvertently left out of the previous release.
  • v3.07 (12/16/2017): Add the new images from Updates 21.2 and 21.3. Also fixed a bug that prevented you from manually entering an asset ID number.
  • v3.06 (9/24/2017): Drastic performance improvements. The plugin will no longer hog the CPU -- it limits its work such that your frame rate should remain above 10 FPS. Also added the new images from Update 21.1.
  • v3.05 (8/3/2017): Added the new images from Update 21.0.
  • v3.04 (5/30/2017): Added the new images from Updates 17.3, 18.x, 19.x, and 20.0.
  • v3.03 (1/22/2016): Added the new images from Update 17.2.
  • v3.02 (12/12/2015): Added the new images from Update 17.1.
  • v3.01 (11/3/2015): Added the new images from Update 17.0. Fixed a bug that prevented manually entering an asset ID.
  • v3.0 (9/15/2015): Added the new images from Updates 16.x. Added "next page" and "previous page" buttons. Speed improvements.
  • v2.7 (2/4/2015): Added the new images from Update 15.2.
  • v2.6 (1/16/2015): Added the new images from Update 15.2 beta 1 (Note: You need to login to Bullroarer to see these). Resolved external dependencies.
  • v2.5 (12/16/2014): Added the new images from Update 15.1.
  • v2.4 (11/6/2014): Added the ability to search by aspect ratio.
  • v2.3 (11/5/2014): Added the new images from Update 15.0. Also, the checkerboard backdrop will now move with the mouse cursor to aid in viewing partially transparent images.
  • v2.1 (9/15/2014): Added the new images from Update 14.2.
  • v2.02 (9/8/2014): Added .plugincompendium file. No functional changes.
  • v2.01 (9/7/2014): Fixed some image sizes that were incorrect in v2.0.
  • v2.0 (9/6/2014): Added the new images from Updates 13.1 and 14.0. (There were no new images in Update 14.1.)
  • v1.9 (4/14/2014): Added the new images from Update 13.
  • v1.8 (2/10/2014): Added the new images from Update 12.3. (There were no new images in Update 12.2.)
  • v1.7 (12/29/2013): Added the new images from Update 12.1.
  • v1.6 (12/15/2013): Added the new images from Helm's Deep (Update 12.0). Also added a checkbox that allows you to browse only the new images and exclude the old ones.
  • v1.5 (6/2/2013): Added a checkerboard-pattern "backdrop" for the images.
  • v1.4 (6/2/2013): Same as v1.3, but this time all of the files are included.
  • v1.3 (6/1/2013): Added "Grid" feature.
  • v1.2 (5/27/2013): Fixed some erroneous image sizes, recalculating them with Garan's method.
  • v1.0 (5/26/2013): Initial release

Yes, some pages will always be blank, because some of the images are invisible when displayed with the default options. Perhaps at some point in the future I'll add an option to apply different blending modes to allow more of the images to be viewed.

Maybe, depending on your search parameters. I won't rule out the possibility of a bug, though. What search parameters are you using?

Can you please update this plugin now with U21.3? I have a feeling that there's already new terrain tiles of Northern Mirkwood..
Done. I set the default parameters to find the new map tiles. Enjoy.

Done.

FYI - Update 14.2 now on Bullroarer has quite a few Icon changes.
I suppose if I were a lot less lazy than I am I could make a special Bullroarer version of this plugin and update it whenever there is a Bullroarer update. (But if you tried to run the Bullroarer version on the normal client, it would crash the client.) Since things that appear on Bullroarer aren't, in general, final... up until now I haven't deemed it worth the effort.

Fascinating tool! -- have you (thought about) coordinated it with the Art Assets which Narrel posts? (i.e. the Skinning Packs.)
I have thought about it, but (1) there doesn't seem to be much use, and (2) there doesn't seem to be an easy way to do it. AssetBrowser allows you to see all of the images in the game -- over 230,000 of them -- not just the ~4,000 that are skinnable. To access these images, it uses the numeric Asset ID that is used in plugins -- not the mnemonic ArtAssedID that is used by skin authors. To make a mapping between the two would be extremely tedious (and pointless as far as I can tell) with the tools at my disposal.

Update 14.0 - 07-15-2014 - http://www.lotrointerface.com/downlo...ackupdate.html

That file does have an index file, which I believe does have a delta listing.
I'm not a "skinner" so I can't tell you more than that.

Visibiltiy in PluginCompendium - missing configuration file

Can you add the appropriate ".plugincompendium" configuration xml file to the distribution so that it is easily tracked and updated.

LunarWater's Plugin Compendium - the page:
http://www.lotrointerface.com/downlo...nfo.php?id=663
has the info on the config file.

I happen to use the Java Version as I run on a Mac.

Sorry guys, I didn't know people were using this thing. I just posted a new version.

I spent some time today streamlining the process, so for future game updates I should be able to get a new version posted within a couple of days.

Or better yet, can someone post a detailed explanation on how to discover new assets and use them in the plugin?

Hmm

Well, that's strange. I uploaded version 1.6 yesterday, but the version available for download is still version 1.5. Looking into it.

Edit: It's fixed, turns out I am a moron. Thanks Cairenn.
