How to freeze your computer ?

Some people wonder why their computer slow down or freeze when opening a panel...

You know the war steed panel :




The Lotro designers use to divide graphic elements in several picture fragments in order to allow displaying it in different sizes, usually 9 to 12 picture files are needed to display a single clickable button (left/center/right declined for normal/mouse over/pressed/ghosted).

Now guess how many picture files are involved in the design of the single button below :





Code:
  <Mapping ArtAssetID="button_right_ghosted" FileName="button_right_ghosted.tga"></Mapping>
  <Mapping ArtAssetID="button_right_highlighted_mouseover" FileName="button_right_highlighted_mouseover.tga"></Mapping>
  <Mapping ArtAssetID="button_right_highlighted_normal" FileName="button_right_highlighted_normal.tga"></Mapping>
  <Mapping ArtAssetID="button_right_highlighted_pressed" FileName="button_right_highlighted_pressed.tga"></Mapping>
  <Mapping ArtAssetID="button_right_mouseover" FileName="button_right_mouseover.tga"></Mapping>
  <Mapping ArtAssetID="button_right_normal" FileName="button_right_normal.tga"></Mapping>
  <Mapping ArtAssetID="button_right_pressed" FileName="button_right_pressed.tga"></Mapping>

  <Mapping ArtAssetID="button_top_left_highlighted_normal" FileName="button_top_left_highlighted_normal.tga"></Mapping>
  <Mapping ArtAssetID="button_top_left_highlighted_pressed" FileName="button_top_left_highlighted_pressed.tga"></Mapping>

(If you look closer, you will notice that "button_bottom_mid_pressed" is missing (it has been removed, with 3 other files, in a previous update), indeed it appears that "button_bottom_mid_normal_2" is used twice and replaces it, this explains why the pressed button looks weird.)

--> The answer is 62 ! Yes, this little poorly designed button is composed of 62 picture files !!!

Cross fingers your hard drive isn't fragmented !

Yea...we clearly need 7 visible states for an "apply" button, how can you even question that? xD

As usual: LOTRO - great game but a mediocre piece of software at best.
