ArtAsset list or something similar?

I am completely new an skinning and to LotRO in general..and I am trying to modify a skin but it is really hard to find the appropriate tags.

Is there a list and or a graphical list showing which items are what?

Current I am looking for the up arrow that opens the main menu. I looked in two skins but they seemed to be conflicting. In one skin main_menu_normal was the button I am referring to..however in another skin that same entry changed a different image..which I don't understand at all..

Confused!

Go to http://www.lotrointerface.com/downloads/cat5.html
And download the latest UI Skin Art pack (there's also other interesting stuff there, but many are getting outdated as we speak).

In that file you can find all the things we can edit. The file includes all the original .tga files and Skindefinition.xml which have the corresponding ArtAsset tags plus SkinDictionary.txt that includes most of the panel code.

Best way to find out what image goes with what tag is to browse the images in an image browser (like FastStone IV) and compare the titles.

For coding Notepad++ is a pretty good proggy because if supports color coding and thus making things a bit more easier to edit.

Thanks for the info, that is exactly what I did last night...albeit a reaaally slow process. There are just too many images.

I did find the one I was looking for though.

Baby steps, hehe. Now if I could just figure out what in the xml file is for the spacing on the XP bar image..

xp bar is one of the rare artassests that they won't us to have access for some reason. You can edit the size of the xp bar but not the graphics I'm afraid.

Ahh the size..maybe thats it..this UI Im using has it shrunk really small..but the didn't mention that in the install. That might solve my problem..hopfully.

edit://

Hmm..well it wasn't that. Im using that one posted on the recent ones, the Black Minimal one..and on his he has the XP bar really small in the middle of the screen..on mine its way left of there..can't figure out why..maybe I should post a shot.

Are you saying you can't MOVE the XP bar either? I see where I can resize the "toolbar" but not just the XP bar...am I missing it?

Daimon says you cannot skin the XP bar, but you can move the XP bar.

I use the following code to move and resize the XP bar:

Code:
      	
<Element ID="LevelMeter" X="10" Y="161" Width="840" Height="30">
  <Element ID="LevelMeterFill" X="0" Y="24" Width="840" Height="6">
    <Element ID="LevelMeter_BonusMeter" X="0" Y="0" Width="840" Height="6"></Element>
  </Element>
  <Element ID="ToolbarButton_LevelUpXP_TutorialHighlight" X="0" Y="10" Width="412" Height="10"></Element>
  <Element ID="ToolbarButton_Experience_TutorialHighlight" X="0" Y="10" Width="412" Height="10"></Element>
  <Element ID="LevelMeterText" X="10" Y="23" Width="840" Height="10"></Element>
</Element>
Maybe that's what you needed?

Cheers,
Ray
