    this overlay is still work-in-progress as i'm not convinced its solved all the problems, and green might not be the best colour (tends to blend in with kobolds) but it should make active stuff more noticeable that before.

    looks more like this:



    again, thanks for the feedback
    Want to +1 u again, and wish u had made this years ago(LOL)

    And the 'active item' highlight looks fine for now, thanks, very nice

    And OMG someone slapped a ginormous picture into the thread so everything looks so FAT!

    Yep, this is why I'm a fan. 16-18 hotbars open on most chars so this helps.

    OS shouldnt be an issue as a friend has exactly the same OS (Win7 32bit Ultimate) with no problem (SP1 installed btw)
    Also i run as admin and i changed permissions for this folder still no luck ....
    I dont have any picture codec installed (that i know of), only thing codec-wise installed is the K-Lite codec pack, which is a video codec pack

    yeah. i agree. i cant see why any codec might interfere with DDO finding and processing targa images.
    is there any obvious differences in your OS install to your friends? is windows installed to C drive? i only ask as all the paths in the skin file are relative, and maybe DDO makes assumptions as to where your settings are, though it should use env variables to handle this.

    i gotta say its confusing.

    Bal, when i get home from work this evening i 'll see about PM'ing you a custom skin file to test. id like to help you get to the bottom of this.

    hey Rasczak,

    the latest zip file in the lotrointerface site has the active icon replaced with the green version you'll see in screenshots in the thread.
    im experimenting with some other colours, but for now this seems to make things more obvious.

    Heh. Its been kicking around in one form or another for about 3 years but each time it got to a release state, a new module (or now update) would come along and break it. Rather than release something that looked not-polished, we sent the developers back to the coalface to chip away at the corners and turn it into the snazzy interface you see today. U9 may be the first update that hasn't broken it, actually.

    developers plural? i'll remind you to introduce them to me sometime

    but yeah.. im surprised update 9 fits in so well. all the mods caused problems, but it was mod 7 that really made me sad.
    once i recovered i knew i should fix blackbird up and get it out there for anyone that wanted it.

    I've been using another skin that was quite nice, but I just loaded this one up and I love it.

    I like the green color for the active items as well...hopefully no more "huh, I ran that quest with my Time Pendant on"!!

    I assumed you had an entire division of Korean developers working for you.

    I only just noticed this. Looks very impressive. Thanks and have +1 you both(author/OP).

    zpfpzps, if you get your mod to work, please upload it to somewhere. This would be even better with that orb.

    aha.. thats a mistake. thought id removed all those psd files. that will get removed next update

    that update should also include a focus orb with a form of gauge on it (which might make shagath and zpfpzps happier) though im trying to find a way to make it useful yet still fit in with the rest of the skin.

    glad people are liking blackbird.

    Got it, loaded it, now looking at it

    I Love it , this is also my first skin or mod for DDO

    very clean, makes my screen look so much better, and easier to see other stuff/things/items or what I want to look at

    All I can do is type +1, but I will log into Xaat and give you a +1

    Default Awesome job!

    Great work!

    Gave rep where it is due and am loving it. Using it currently and I think the green for active/equipped items is perfect.

    Keep it up!

    thanks to everyone thats giving it a go, and posting a comment, i appreciate it.
    This skin is by far the best skin I have seen for DDO. +1 for you.

    2 minor suggestions to go along with the above suggestions:

    1. When the hotbars are unlocked, the active hotbar has a yellow border, but when I lock the hotbars, the active becomes white like the default software. I think it would be cool if the active hotbar in locked mode replicated the active hotbar in unlocked mode, i.e. a yellow border.

    2. Partition the health and sp bars similar to the way the rival skin works. I.e. put hash marks at 25, 50 and 75% for easir identification of how much health/sp etc are left.
