Add skin name warning dialog
Feature #: 37
File: LOTRO Skin Editor
Date: 11-23-2011 10:30 PM
By: Modnar
Status: Feature Implemented
LotRO will only display the first 25 characters of a skin's name, regardless of it's actual length, within the SkindDefinition.XML file. I would suggest adding a warning dialog that pops up if the user leaves the name field with more than 15 to 25 characters.

This warning should specifically warn for skin name length, length + skin variants, length + versioning (per my other suggestion) and length + variants + versioning. Take a look at this specific message in the BuildSkin Usage Instructions - specifically the material on Names around the "code" section (about halfway down).

I copied a vaild skin (BGM Red 5 from Brygard), changed it's name within the SkinDefinition.XML file, ran LotRO and tested it on Live to see the results. The name I used was "123456789012345678901234567890". The third 5 was the last character displayed.

Done, there is a message that states the name may cause problems, but the skin will still be saved.
