JRR Azure Glass



Version 34 :

- Added a 8th toolbar profile : BGM custom short with energy meter bar (which I called previously efficiency meter bar).

- Changed the naming of each theme profile, this means :
You must delete the previous Azure Glass installation folder before installing this new version.
You will have to re-select your chosen skin on each of your characters.

Don't forget the panel customizations (including custom toolbar) will be applied only after the next log in of your character.



Version 33.2.2 :

I enlarged the target's target vital frame, targeted objects frame is almost unchanged.
I suppressed some deprecated panel customization codes:
- "panel displayed when applying an item on a legendary Item"
- "Taller legendary item dismantling result window"
- "Taller Legacy Extraction panel"
- "Store button removal in relic master panel"
- "Expanded master loot window"
- "Store button removal in wallet panel"

Old release notes are logged here.



Introduction :


This Azure Glass release offers you an updated and improved edition of the popular original skin Azure Glass, created by Enfield.



Choose between the 8 toolbars at your disposal :


JRR Azure Glass features several profiles named "universal" "1x1", "1x2", "2x2", "3x2" and "Basic".
The only difference between these "profiles" is a different main toolbar, as shown below (captions aren't real size) :


- The skin "_JRR Azure Glass Wide universal toolbar" allows you to freely place additional quickslot bars (1 to 5) in the same way than the lotro default skin does.
This is the only profile which not requires to manually edit the skindefinition.xml file to center the toolbar depending your display resolution.



- The skin "_JRR Azure Glass Custom short BGM" allows you to freely stack one column of quickslot bars in the same way that most of the skins do.
On this toolbar profile, the system buttons are not shown.



- The skin "_JRR Azure Glass Custom wide" allows you to freely stack one column of quickslot bars in the same way that most of the skins do.



- The skin "_JRR Azure Glass Custom ultrawide 1 stage" allows you to place 2 quickslot bars within the main toolbar frame. (The default one plus quickslot bar 1)



- The skin "_JRR Azure Glass Custom ultrawide 2 stages" allows you to place 4 quickslot bars within the main toolbar frame. (The default one plus quickslot bars 1 to 3)



- The skin "_JRR Azure Glass Custom ultrawide 3 stages" allows you to place 6 quickslot bars within the main toolbar frame. (The default one plus quickslot bars 1 to 5)



- The skin "_JRR Azure Glass Custom - Ultrawide Basic" allows you to freely stack 2 columns of quicklsot bars side by side.
As the other azure glass bars, it can display the small rune keeper's attunement bar. (based on Multibar Clean toolbar)







Rune keeper's small attunement meter :

Azure Glass supports mini attunement display, within the main bar, in the same place than champion's fervor.



To enable this feature, open LotRO's option panel -> "UI settings" tab -> "Attunement panel size" (a select box a bit under the skin selection select box) -> set it to "small".






Installation instructions :



- Step 1 : Download the file from this page, then unpack it on your desktop.



- Step 2 : Do you know which is your LOTRO client's display resolution ? (if you play in full screen, it should be your native screen's resolution).
  • If yes, you can jump to step 3
  • If you ignore it, just open the option panel in LOTRO and select the first tab called "graphic" as shown on the picture below :

  • If you play in fullscreen mode, note your corresponding resolution (the first is the width, the second is the height).
  • If you play in windowed mode, note your corresponding resolution, then open the Lotro option panel, select UI settings tab and set the toolbars scale 0.99 or 1.01
  • If your resolution is already 2560x1440 Jump to step 4



- Step 3 : Your LOTRO display resolution IS NOT 2560x1440 pixels, so you need to manually edit the skindefinition.xml files present in the folder you unpacked.
They are located in the sub folders named _Basic toolbar, _Universal toolbar, 1x1 toolbar, 1x2 toolbar, 2x2 toolbar and 3x2 toolbar.
Edit each skindefinition.xml file corresponding to the profile(s) you plan to use.
To edit a skindefinition.xml file, open it with Window's Notepad, Notepad++ (it's a freeware) or any else text editor.
Don't panic ! You'll just have to modify 2 numbers near the beginning of the text The needed explanations about what to do there are logged in the skindefinition.xml file.
Read well, the number isn't the same for all the profiles.


- Step 4 : Your skindefinition.xml files are set to fit your personal resolution.
  • - Copy the "JRR AzureGlass" folder in your "my documents" --> "The Lord of the Rings Online" (this is where your LOTRO sreenshots are located) --> "UI" --> "skins" (plural) folder.
    If UI and/or skins folders don't exist, create it.
  • Exit LOTRO client if it is running, then (re)launch LOTRO.
  • Log on the character onto you want to apply the _JRR Azure**** profile. Select the theme from the panel menu --> UI Settings, as shown on the picture below.



In order to be displayed at the correct position, it requires you have the toolbar's default size defined in the option panel, as follow :




- Step 5 : Once you have selected the skin/profile you want for your character, you have to logout then login back to get the new custom parameters applied.

- Step 6 : Concerning the quickslot bars (12 slots each), the skin parameters can handle only the default one, the other quickslot bars must be positioned by the user.

If you don't how how to proceed :

1) Open your Option menu
2) Go to "UI Settings"
3) Go to "Quickslot Bars"
4) Select the Bar you wish to use (1-5)
5) On that Bar, check "Always Show" and make sure it's not docked
6) Add an Ability to that bar (for alignment purposes)
7) Use " Ctrl + * " or " Ctrl + \ " to unlock your UI
8) Drag the Quickslot Bar into the Bottom Bar graphic and align it
9) Lock your UI (" Ctrl + * " or " Ctrl + \ ") and you're ready to go !









FAQ and known issues :


When using toolbar profiles 1x2, 2x2 or 3x2 profiles, after character has loaded, the quickslot bar 3 (and only this one) looks greyed, because it has "fallen" to the background of the toolbar !
This is a lotro client issue, it is visual only, everything still works ! It occurs wherever the quiclslot 3 is located on the toolbar.
Fortunately, clicking on any slot of this bar brings it back to the front for all the duration of your game session.
- If you're using the 1x2 or 2x2 toolbar profile, this issue can be avoid by simply replacing the quicklot bar 3 by quickslots 4 or 5 in your toolbar.
- For the 3x2 toolbar profile, you can replace the quickslot bar 3 by another one created with Tonicbars or any other slot bar managing plugin.

- The 3D portrait from my vital bar zoom or dezoom each time I load a new area.
This is a well known issue since years. It is caused by the player vital panel code used in skins. This bug comes from the lotro client itself, I cannot fix it through the skin code, I can only disable the 3d portrait sizing line of code in the skins to bypass it, like it was the case in JRR skins and E&E panels before I re-enabled it in order to fix the other 3D portrait zooming and de-centering issues introduced by lotro update 33.1. So, whatever I do some people will be unsatisfied until the devs fix some of their game bugs. However, while waiting for a game fix there are several ways to overcome it :
- Set your vital frame size to 1.00 in ui settings options tab.
- Disable 3D portrait in lotro ingame options.
- Roll back to Azure Glass v33 while praying for the devs decide some day to spend a few minutes to fix their fucking bugs.
- Fully replace the "regular" player vital frame by a plugin made one, as for example : https://www.lotrointerface.com/downl...1-Athelas.html
- Delete this line of code from the skindefinition.xml file of each skin you use :
Code: <Element ID="PlayerPortrait" X="23" Y="25" Width="56" Height="56"> </Element>

- I just installed Azure Glass and selected one of the skins on my character, some panels are displayed in a strange manner, like upside down.
Logout then login back, this is a necessary step to apply the new custom panel settings.

- I just installed the last version of this Azure Glass release and selected it on my character, but some panels backgrounds or other elements are replaced by a light-grey frame
If only a few elements are greyed, this can be an error from my side (indicating a wrong location of a file in the skin). Don't hesitate to report me this kind of issues.

- How do I uninstall a skin from my computer ?
Simply delete the skin folder you had previously copied onto your from your hard drive (I mean in ...Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\ui\skins\ folder), that's all.

- The map is no more fullscreen !
This is not a bug, this is a skinning choice, it is really convenient in some situations, and on multi screen systems.
Indeed the map is displayed at its actual size, without the zooming blur.

How can I restore the fullscreen map ?
Use a text editor software (as Windows notepad) to open the skindefinition.xml file located in the folder of the theme you want to tweak, then look for these lines (you can use Control F) and delete them :
Code:
<PanelFile ID="ID_UISkin_MapPanel">
<Element ID="MapBackground" X="0" Y="0" Width="1024" Height="768"> </Element>
</PanelFile>
then save changes in the file than relaunch lotro.

- Can I tweak the size and/or the location of the windowed map on my screen ?
Unfortunately NO, this is an unofficial skinning tweak and it do not supports changing its size or its location on your screen.
It seems the only values presently supported are these default ones.

- My character doesn't show in the dressroom !
JRR skins doesn't supports resolutions with a height below 768 pixels.
If you run Lotro with a resolution height equal to 768, you have to play in fullscreen mode to get the dressroom correctly displaying the character.
Higher resolutions allow to play indifferently in fullscreen or windowed modes.

- The auction house panel is too big !
Your screen resolution is too low ! ^^
If you run Lotro with a resolution height equal to 768, you have to play in fullscreen mode to get the auction house panel entirely displayed and usable.
Higher resolutions allow to play indifferently in fullscreen or windowed modes.

"Toolbars buttons don't push"
Since Rohan, Turbine bugged the toolbar code, then you now have to edit the "Y" value of the toolbar code in addidition of its "X" value.
All needed explanations about what to do are logged into the skindefinition.xml files.
These files are located in the Azure Glass skins profiles folders.
You can open and edit them with Window's Wordap or any else texte editor software.
I you play in window mode or switch between window mode and fulscreen mode, you can bypass the "Y" issue by simply setting the toolbar scale to a value different than 1.00 ( in lotro option panel -> UI settings tab) (0.99 or 1.01 is ok).

- A taller dressing room
- A taller barter panel
- A taller auction Panel

Hi, the location of the drag bar of the quest guide isn't modified compared to the default skin, it is only turned invisible, place your mouse cursor just above the top quest, and when its icon changes, you're on it.
Well I feel silly. Thank you

Quest guide

Any way to restore the draggable quest guide on the world map? It is badly positioned on certain maps and makes it difficult to see some quests.

_JRR Azure Glass *Basic*

For some reason, and I'm guessing this is user error, I can't for the life of me find this option in the listed UIs in the drop down menu.

I really would like to use that one so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Monster Play Elite Portrait

@sredchits

Hi, thanks for your feedback.

Unfortunately, this is a part of bugs the lotro devs introduced for no reason in the vital panel frame with update 33.1 and never spent one minute to reverse it...

If you try with the default skin you will see the same bugs and in addition the 3D portrait zoomed and not centered

You can bypass this issue by replacing the default portrait by an anniversary or the vip portrait by right clicking on your portrait.

Monster Play Elite Portrait

Hello, first i would like to say that i absolutely love the ultrawide basic skin, it's so clean compared to the default lotro that i cannot even imagine playing wihout it, however i recently came upon something that i'd say is "literally unplayable", when you get the elite status on your monster character, the elite border for some reason is under the actual panel instead of being on top (see image attached) while the opponent panel is fine. How can i fix this?

Re: New Names?

@datvigi

Hi, here is the naming chart I defined to rename the profiles, depending their toolbar :

universal = Uses the default toolbar panel code from lotro. It fits with any screen resolution.
Any theme name featuring this word can easily be used by anyone.

custom Indicates that the toolbar is designed using a custom toolbar panel code.
This unfortunately requires to manually edit its skindefinition.xml file with a text editor in order to fit the user's screen resolution (if it is different from the one used in the file).

Short = actually shortened toolbar using a custom toolbar panel code

Light = an universal toolbar visually shortened by turning invisible the side buttons.

wide = full length toolbar.

utrawide = extra length toolbar.


Name changes :


azure glass Basic => Custom - Ultrawide Basic

azure glass "universal" => Wide universal toolbar

azure glass 1x1 BGM => Custom short BGM

azure glass 1x1 => Custom wide

azure glass 1x2 => Custom ultrawide 1 stage

azure glass 2x2 => Custom ultrawide 2 stages

azure glass 3x2 => Custom ultrawide 3 stages

new profile : Custom short BGM NRG bar

Version 34

- Added a 8th toolbar profile : BGM custom short with energy meter bar (which I called previously efficiency meter bar).

- Changed the naming of each theme profile, this means :
You must delete the previous Azure Glass installation folder before installing this new version.
You will have to re-select your chosen skin on each of your characters.

Don't forget the panel customizations (including toolbar) will be applied only after the next log of your character.

Re: Re: Re: Visual Portrait bug

Hi, otherwise you can disable "3D portait" in ingame options to avoid this bug untill the devs fix it between now and ever.

EDIT : I added solutions for this issue in the FAQ.

Re: Re: Visual Portrait bug

Ah, it appears it happens if you have the "Vitals" UI element set to anything other than 1.0, like the toolbar. Okies, problem solved
