transparent bottombar

here is a little tip from Joviex on the beta forums:

to make a bottombar transparent and hide the bags and menu buttons,
create a 1x1 transparent .tga called invisible.tga, and put this in your SkinDefinition.xml:

Code:
<Mapping ArtAssetID="accomplishment_journal_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="accomplishment_journal_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="accomplishment_journal_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag_inventory" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag1" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag1_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag1_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag1_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag2" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag2_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag2_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag2_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag3" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag3_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag3_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag3_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag4" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag4_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag4_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag4_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="crafting_highlight" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="crafting_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="crafting_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="fellowship_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="fellowship_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="fellowship_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="inventory_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="inventory_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="inventory_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="journal_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="journal_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="journal_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="LetterBoxBottom" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="main_menu_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="main_menu_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="main_menu_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="map_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="map_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="map_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="quest_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="quest_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="quest_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
to note: if you want to make a skin for the bottom bar, it is that line you have to add/change:

Code:
<Mapping ArtAssetID="LetterBoxBottom" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
and the size is 1024x85.

Enjoy!

edit: for those that do not want to bother, I've uploaded a zip file containing the invisible tga file

So, if you didn't make this line of code invisible, the icon would show up when you move your mouse over it ?

Can anyone make a mod with just the bags invisibile. I'd like the toolbar and option menu side still viewable. Also is it possible to relocate the main toolbar itself? Thanks.

You cannot move the bottom bar.

Its easy enought o just balnk the bags however, remove all the lines from the above XML except where the bag* names are used. Those will override the default and disappear.

Specifically the xml main part would read:

Code:
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag_inventory" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag1" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag1_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag1_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag1_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag2" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag2_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag2_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag2_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag3" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag3_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag3_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag3_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag4" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag4_normal" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag4_pressed" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="bag4_rollover" FileName="Invisible.tga"></Mapping>

you can't move the bottom bar yet, but for the menu buttons, here you go: (download the SkinDefinition.xml)

edit: Joviex beat me to it

well you have to already have an invisible.tga for this to work, like this one:
or the one found in the invisible skin of Joviex. so put this tga in the same folder has the SkinDefinition, and select ghilui (or change the name of the skin in the SkinDefinition.xml), should work correctly.
