The selection's vital window was accidentally omitted in the recent version. I've added it back in.

I can't find the ID_UISkin_FellowMiniTemplate (non-raid fellowship box) in the book 8 SkinDictionary file ... has it been renamed ?

And the Moria Book 8 UI Skin Art file available is still the one dated of 07-15-2009 ;)

I'm having trouble skinning the mail box background as in when you first open the mailbox. I am currently using Firefern's UI skin with the enlarged mailbox and I think I am just missing the ArtAsset code line for that part of the mailbox (if there is one lol) that links the tga image that I have made for it. I have thoroughly looked through this site and the LotRo site in hopes that I just missed it somewhere lol.

Hopefully I explained this right lol but any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated!! :)

Thanks in advance,

There you go:

<Mapping ArtAssetID="mail_base_home" FileName="..\Graphics\firefern_mail_base_home.tga" "></Mapping>

As a hint for others issues you may have:
once you get the name of the pic (browsing them) search for it in the skindefinition.xlm file it will give you the correct ArtAssetID.

(edited ;) )

Awesome! Thanks so much! :)

But I am still a bit of a newb when it comes to some aspects of these skins so I have no idea what the skindefintion.xls file is lol. Is that the same thing as the skindefinition.xml is just opened with a different extension and program? Or is it something really simplistic that I am missing? lol

Thanks again! :)

Deewe just made a typo I think :) Skindefinition.xml is the file you're supposed to look at

Thayilis 03-26-2010 03:17 PM

lol! :D Thanks Daimon

Did the UI toolkit get removed with the new site? The links in the OP don't work and I get no matches when searching the new lotro site.
