YES

Hi, the goal of skins (plugins are a different thing) is precisely and exclusively to change the appearance of the user interface elements : width, height, location and their coating which is composed of picture files that you can recolor / redesign / replace.

This skin (E&E panels) is only focused on resizing UI elements, however, as it is composed exactly than all the other skins, you can choose to use it as a clean fresh starting base to introduce your own picture files customizations.

All you have to do is to log the changes you wish to apply in its skindefinition.xml file, which is located in its skin folder, on your hard drive. (Do it with a text editor as Window's Notepad)

The deed log background corresponding picture file is accomplishment_book_background.tga

The source of all graphic files and corresponding text (reference identifier of the picture, its relative path location in the folder tree including its filename) to add in the skindefinition.xml file are currently provided in this skinning pack : https://www.lotrointerface.com/downloads/info1008

Handling TGA files with common picture editing software can be... complicated

In your example, the line of text to insert in the skindefinition.xml file to indicate the Lotro client that you have introduced a picture replacement for the deed log background could look like this :

Code:
<Mapping ArtAssetID="accomplishment_book_background" FileName="my_skin_picture_files_folder\my_customized_version_of_accomplishment_book_background.tga"></Mapping>

You can also choose to install (for free) fully customized graphic themes, as a starting base for your own customization or as a turnkey alternative to the blue default user interface skinning theme :



For example, the pack of UI themes JRR skins collection apply the same panel enhancements which are provided in E&E panels, combined with custom full sets of picture files in order to deliver many new user interface experiences.

Slide down its homepage to see many screenshots of what it proposes you.

Other full theming skins : Black Glass Remix or Azure Glass

@ Adra

Many thanks for the fix, I wasn't sure you'd want to try to fix the problem yet, given that SSG aren't even sure they'll be keeping this method of font resizing in the Quest Log and Quest Bestowal panels.

Also thanks for the very speedy response in uploading the correct file!

The file for the update is named the AzureGlass file instead of Extended and Enhanced Panels.
Is it actually the EEP, or is it a version of AzureGlass by mistake?
Oops you're right , I double failed my double check

I upload the right file, right now !

Hello everyone and sorry for the late replies, indeed I still have issues with email notification for new messages.

@Grizzly UK

Quote:
The latest LotRO Update 23.1.7 added a new "feature" to the Quest Log:

"BETA: The Quest Log and Quest Bestowal panels now support dynamic font resizing. To resize text, either press on the increase/decrease font size buttons on the bottom left of each panel, or hold down the Control key and use the Mouse Scroll Wheel when hovering over the panel text. This change will only persist during the current client session, and may be replaced by a different solution in the future."

So EE Panels users now have the increase/decrease font size buttons sitting in the middle of the Quest Log, so is there any chance of a fix for this please?

Hi, unfortunately at this stage I have no more ressources to work on than any of you
I haven't the ability to read the code directly inside the lotro client to look at the changes introduced in the quest book
This means I can't work on a fix unless SSG releases an update of the skinning pack or communicate the new lines of code embedded in the updated quest book.


@JLSigman

Hi, what do you mean ? Can you show me a screenshot of what you describe ?
However as far as I remember, EE panel don't bring any color customization on the map's quest tracker, and it is not its purpose.
If you want to test a much deeper skinning experience (with the same panel customizations) I recommend you install JRR Skins Collection and/or Azure Glass.


@maddog1169

Hi, I released an update of EE panels one month before your message to fix this issue.

Map colors missing

Some of the darker colors for the quest markers on the map are no longer there, having been replaced with duplicates of other colors. Is there a way to fix this?

Hi everyone

Sorry for my late reaction to your messages, my webmail self-decided to send new messages notifications in the spam folder before they are transfered in my mail manager software. This is now fixed

The new release of EE Panels (6.22.4) fixes the issue introduced in the quest book panel with lotro update 22.3

@ Marancil
You're welcome
"And this has to be done again with new release..." There won't be frequent updates as I'm no more playing Lotro
