A little help please.....

I am using a modified version of Brygard's BGM skin and with the blue colored one, I have added the quest and vendor panels from Firefern's UI skin. With the blue skin it works great. Just this morning I decided to add that same addition to the other colors and for some reason the game won't recognize the other skins. I did everything exactly the same when adding the modifications to the other colors and the UI skins (aptly named Laptop green, red & purple) but they just don't show up in the games UI skin list in the options.

Did I miss something or is there something wrong? lol Any help with this would be greatly appreciated .

Thanks in advance,

Whats Os your running and did you make sure the folder names and anything inside don't contain capitol letters?

Also can be the skin definition file code broken,make sure least leave 1 blank space for each code line to make sure,sometime they break if not done so,it's rare problem but happens.

Also in the skin definiton file is it really an xml file not a text file.

Another thing inside the skindefinition file make sure the very first top code contains the <opt> and the very very last should contain the </opt>.

Basic structure for Skindefinition.xml would be:
HTML Code:
    <opt>                                   needed to start the file
        <SkinName Name="SKINNAME">            gives the #NAME# for the skin
            </SkinName>                     ends the naming tag
        <Panelfile>                         includes numeric values for panels
            <Element ID="PANELNAME">          child element for panelfile-tag
                </Element>                  ends element-tag
            </Panelfile>                    ends panelfile-tag
        <Mapping ArtAssetID="PIC.TGA">        refers to a picture used for skin
            </Mapping>                      ends mapping-tag
    </opt>                                  ends the file
If you're missing even a single </Element> tag that should be there in the correct location the skin won't show up in Lotro.

The problem might be a much more simpler too, hard to say.
