Black Chrome and Deep Purples are the heart of Nightshade. The colored body, tabs, and panels are slightly transparent, but not enough to detract from the information contained within or to wash out the rich deep purples and reds that make up the color scheme.
Just about everything skinnable has been skinned in Nightshade. Included are both Nightshade and Nightshade Mini with regular and NFP (No Fervour/focus Pips) versions of each.
If you enjoy this interface, please don't forget to rate it and let me (and others) know. If you find any bugs or problems, let me know as well, so that I may keep Nightshade as bug-free and cleanly operating as possible. As time goes on, I'll likely add more bar options to this package.
Now included is a 1280 wide mainbar. Enjoy!
Simply unzip the complete package into your MyDocuments>>Lord of the Rings Online directory. The zip contains the proper directory structure to do the rest.
When you first use this, or any, new ui, you should log into the game, go to the UI Options menu, use the drop-down to select your ui, then log completely out of the game and back in for everything to take effect. Always do this for this or any other ui before reporting bugs, as it is the most common root cause of "the UI looks wrong" reports that authors receive.
Making the bar fit your resolution:
To modify the position of the chosen bar, first open up the SkinDefinition.xml file in the directory containing the skin you have chosen to use.
Look for a line near the beginning of the file that reads similar to this:
<Element ID="ToolbarField" X="0" Y="910" Width="1280" Height="114" Detach="1">
Note the word "ToolbarField" in the line...this is the only element you will need to adjust.
The X= and Y= pair of numbers set the vertical and horizontal position of the top left corner of the mainbar on your screen.
In order to change the position of the bar to, for example, the lower right corner of your screen, you would subtract the width= number from the horizontal resolution of your display. This will give you the value of X= to use. Then subtract the height= value from your vertical resolution to give you the Y= value.
Save the file, then log in, load up the ui in the Custom UI section of options, then log completely out of the game and back in. Your bar should be at the right position for your screen. There are many options for bar placement, so an explanation for all possibilities is too lengthy for this area.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask me and I'll do what I can to help.
