Skinning How To/Revert 1.20 to a Classic look

From Second Life Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Introduction

UPDATE: Since this page was written, a feature was added to the 1.20 viewer to change to a Classic look very simply! Go to Edit menu > Preferences > Skins tab, and choose the default grey color. This feature was made possible by an open source patch by McCabe Maxsted, who used the steps in this tutorial!

This page is a great practice exercise, to become familiar with how the skinning architecture works under-the-hood.

This page is for reverting the XML and viewer artwork files in the 1.20 viewer back to their pre-1.20 viewer state. There are several steps you need to go through to rebuild the classic viewer look. *NOTE* This a work in progress. See the revision history. If you'd like the quick and easy path, you can get the full thing at Viewer_Skins/Classic_Look.

Editing the XML files

For convenience, I've uploaded the updated xml files in a zip file here. However, if you'd like to make the changes the yourself, here are the files and parameters you need to alter:

(NOTE: I'm using the en-us version. For other languages, edit the xml files in that language folder using the same values I've used)

colors.xml

This file controls the majority of colors in the viewer. In-between the <settings version = "101"> and </settings> tags, copy/paste the following:

textures.xml

This file is tricky, in that it doesn't play well with pre-Dazzle graphics (just changing the colors.xml file and replacing the artwork results in squished/misshapen buttons). To get the pre-1.20 button shapes back, make the following edits to your textures.xml file:

Change scale_rect values to <scale_rect left="16" top="12" right="112" bottom="12" /> for:

button_disabled_32x128.tga
button_enabled_32x128.tga
button_enabled_selected_32x128.tga

Change scale_rect values to <scale_rect left="7" top="32" right="121" bottom="0" />

toolbar_btn_enabled.tga
toolbar_btn_disabled.tga
toolbar_btn_selected.tga

Change scale_rect values to <scale_rect left="0" top="30" right="32" bottom="0"/> for:

flyout_btn_right.tga
flyout_btn_right_disabled.tga
flyout_btn_right_selected.tga

Change scale_rect values to <scale_rect left="16" top="15" right="112" bottom="15"/> for:

flyout_btn_left.tga
flyout_btn_left_disabled.tga
flyout_btn_left_selected.tga

Change scale_rect values to <scale_rect left="20" top="24" right="44" bottom="0"/> for:

btn_chatbar_selected.tga
btn_chatbar.tga

Change scale_rect values to <scale_rect left="10" top="7" right="65" bottom="7"/> for:

progressbar_fill.tga

Change scale_rect values to <scale_rect left="10" top="7" right="80" bottom="7"/> for:

progressbar_track.tga

panel_media_controls.xml

This panel controls the size and spacing of the media controls. There is an oddity here you have to watch out for: the stop/pause/play buttons are based on flyout_btn_*.tga rather than button_anim_*.tga as you'd prolly expect. The actual stop/pause/play "button" is an icon overlay (icn_play.tga, for example) and the spacing of the icon overlay is tied to the spacing of the flyout buttons and follows the same left_delta values. That means you can't move the play icon two pixels to the right without moving the entire button, which makes sense on the surface, but if your play icon is two pixels too far to the left there's nothing you can do.

To get the classic media controls layout back, replace panel_media_controls.xml with the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<panel bg_visible="false" border="false" border_visible="false" bottom="1"

panel_voice_controls.xml

Unlike most other xml files changed between 1.19 and 1.20, the only things to change in panel_voice_controls are the values. For the ptt_lock_*.tga button scale_image was changed from true to false. I assume there was a good reason for this, so I've left it as and resized the icon.

For the classic skin values, replace panel_voice_controls.xml with the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<panel bg_visible="false" border="false" border_visible="false" bottom="2"
     enabled="true" follows="right|bottom" height="20" left="0"
     mouse_opaque="true" name="voice_controls" width="128">
	<button bottom="-22" height="22" image_overlay="active_speakers.tga" label="" left="2"
	     name="speakers_btn"
	     tool_tip="Show list of residents using voice chat around you" width="38" />
	<button bottom="-22" height="22" label="Talk" left_delta="40" name="push_to_talk"
	     tab_stop="false" tool_tip="Hold the button to talk" width="64" />
	<button bottom="-19" height="16" image_selected="ptt_lock_on.tga"
	     image_unselected="ptt_lock_off.tga" label="" left_delta="4" name="ptt_lock"
	     scale_image="false" toggle="true"
	     tool_tip="Click lock to switch to talk mode" width="16" />
	<icon bottom="-19" height="16" image_name="icn_voice_ptt-off.tga" left_delta="42"
	     name="voice_volume" width="16" />
	<button bottom="-22" control_name="ShowVoiceChannelPopup" height="22" label=""
	     left_delta="20" name="show_channel" scale_image="true" toggle="true"
	     tool_tip="Click to show current voice channel" width="22" />
</panel>

floater_tools.xml

The size of the build icons changed, so to use the classic icons you need to change the layout in the tools xml file. Open floater_tools.xml and delete everything between < !-- Create panel -- > and < !-- Land panel -- >. Then, replace it with the following:

	<button bottom="-75" follows="left|top" font="SansSerif" halign="center" height="24"
	     image_disabled="object_cube.tga"
	     image_disabled_selected="object_cube_active.tga"
	     image_selected="object_cube_active.tga" image_unselected="object_cube.tga"
	     label="" label_selected="" left="4" mouse_opaque="true" name="ToolCube"
	     scale_image="TRUE" width="24" tool_tip="Cube"/>

floater_directory.xml

Some tabs in the search floater have different background colors, which will cause the text color set by ScrollSelectedFGColor to look off. In this case, ScrollSelectedFGColor is set to dark gray, but the People Search tab's background is also set to dark gray. To fix this, in 1.20 RC9, open floater_directory.xml and scroll down to the People panel. Change:

<scroll_list background_visible="false" bottom="-513" column_padding="0" draw_border="true"
			     draw_heading="true"
			     follows="left|top|right|bottom" height="464" left="4" mouse_opaque="true"
			     multi_select="false" name="results" search_column="2" width="326">

To:

<scroll_list background_visible="false" bottom="-513" column_padding="0" draw_border="true"
			     draw_heading="true" fg_disable_color="1, 1, 1, 1"
                            fg_selected_color="1, 1, 1, 1" fg_unselected_color="1, 1, 1, 1"
			     follows="left|top|right|bottom" height="464" left="4" mouse_opaque="true"
			     multi_select="false" name="results" search_column="2" width="326">

The parameters fg_selected_color and fg_unselected_color override the settings in colors.xml.

Misc XML files

In Dazzle, most info buttons like (?) were given oblong dimensions. In order to fix this, you need to edit the following XML files accordingly:

panel_avatar.xml

Change:

<button bottom_delta="2" follows="left|top" font="SansSerif" halign="center"
height="16" label="i" label_selected="i" left_delta="44"
mouse_opaque="true" name="partner_info"
tool_tip="Click to open partner's profile" width="20" />
<button bottom_delta="0" follows="left|top" font="SansSerif" halign="center"
height="16" label="?" label_selected="?" left_delta="24"
mouse_opaque="true" name="partner_help" width="20" />

to:

<button bottom_delta="2" follows="left|top" font="SansSerif" halign="center"
height="18" label="i" label_selected="i" left_delta="44"
mouse_opaque="true" name="partner_info"
tool_tip="Click to open partner's profile" width="18" />
<button bottom_delta="0" follows="left|top" font="SansSerif" halign="center"
height="18" label="?" label_selected="?" left_delta="24"
mouse_opaque="true" name="partner_help" width="18" />

floater_about_land.xml

Under the "Options" panel section, change:

<button bottom="-140" enabled="true" follows="left|top" font="SansSerif"
halign="center" height="16" label="?" label_selected="?" left="400"
mouse_opaque="true" name="?" width="20" />

to:

<button bottom="-140" enabled="true" follows="left|top" font="SansSerif"
halign="center" height="18" label="?" label_selected="?" left="400"
mouse_opaque="true" name="?" width="18" />

floater_env_settings.xml

Change:

<button bottom="-40" follows="left|top" font="SansSerif" height="18" label="?"
left="570" name="EnvSettingsHelpButton" width="22" />

to:

<button bottom="-40" follows="left|top" font="SansSerif" height="18" label="?"
left="570" name="EnvSettingsHelpButton" width="18" />

floater_water.xml

12 edits. Anyplace you see:

<button bottom_delta="0" follows="left|top" font="SansSerifSmall" height="15" label="?"

change it to:

<button bottom_delta="0" follows="left|top" font="SansSerifSmall" height="18" label="?"

floater_windlight_options

22 edits. Same change as above. Replace height="15" with height="18".

panel_group_*.xml

Change:

<button bottom="-24" font="SansSerif" halign="center" height="16" label="?"
	     label_selected="?" left="391" name="help_button" width="20" />

to:

<button bottom="-24" font="SansSerif" halign="center" height="16" label="?"
	     label_selected="?" left="391" name="help_button" width="18" />

Viewer Artwork

Starting from scratch

Most of the viewer artwork is in the source drop. Head to the Source_archive and download the 1.9.1.4 artwork file. In linden\indra\newview\skins\textures you'll find the majority artwork files for the classic skin as either .tga or .j2c (Jpeg2000 files). All are named as UUIDs, and will need to be renamed to their proper filenames to match their entries in textures.xml (this can take a long time. There are 316 files you need to rename). If you try to use UUID file names and modify the textures.xml file it won't work.

Several files will also need to be converted to .tga. These are:

  • 16d032e8-817b-4368-8a4e-b7b947ae3889.j2c to tab_top_selected_blue.tga
  • 1ed83f57-41cf-4052-a3b4-2e8bb78d8191.j2c to tab_top_blue.tga
  • 1097dcb3-aef9-8152-f471-431d840ea89e.j2c to tab_left.tga
  • bea77041-5835-1661-f298-47e2d32b7a70.j2c to tab_left_selected.tga
  • bf0a8779-689b-48c3-bb9a-6af546366ef4.j2c to tab_bottom_blue.tga
  • c001d8fd-a869-4b6f-86a1-fdcb106df9c7.j2c to tab_bottom_selected_blue.tga
  • d8faf8cb-ee6e-b0b5-abd9-bde873ad3461.j2c to toolbar_btn_enabled.tga
  • f8124d60-2875-c358-7847-2acb63e5400c.j2c to toolbar_btn_disabled.tga
  • 1eddba75-b682-110a-104e-6cdcce616a25.j2c to toolbar_btn_selected.tga

The helper icons on the toolbar are hard coded to load so you can't modify textures.xml. Turn the following into fully transparrent textures:

  • icn_toolbar_build.tga
  • icn_toolbar_fly.tga
  • icn_toolbar_inventory.tga
  • icn_toolbar_map.tga
  • icn_toolbar_minimap.tga
  • icn_toolbar_search.tga
  • icn_toolbar_snapshot.tga

These files won't display correctly, and must be shrunk to 16x16:

  • ptt_lock_off.tga
  • ptt_lock_on.tga

These files you need to create yourself:

Buttons:

  • flyout_btn_left.tga
  • flyout_btn_left_selected.tga
  • flyout_btn_left_disabled.tga
    • Remember to make sure the flyout_btn_lefts are 128x24.
  • flyout_btn_right_disabled.tga

Icons:

  • icn_play.tga
  • icn_pause.tga
  • icn_stop.tga
    • Each should be 10x10. Shift the actual graphic to the right or the left so that it'll appear centered on the actual button.

Other:

  • toolbar_tab.tga (the chatbar backdrop)
  • toolbar_bg.tga (toolbar backdrop; a solid color will do)
  • progressbar_track.tga (progress bar backdrop)
  • progressbar_fill.tga (bar itself)
  • startup_logo.j2c (the login screen background)
    • You need an imaging program that can write Jpeg2000 codestream files (.j2c or.j2k; the two extensions are interchangeable). Copy the lower third portion of the 1.19 image (66864f3c-e095-d9c8-058d-d6575e6ed1b8.j2c) onto the 1.20 version (startup_logo.j2c). The top portion is loaded by html now, and sometimes changes.

Optional artwork:

  • Go to the Source_archive and download the 1.13 artwork. In there, you'll find classic versions of the buy lindens and buy land icons.
  • Use my status_no_scripts.tga file. The 1.19.1.4 one is pretty awful. I made it into something decent.

Downloading Classic artwork files

If you wish to skip this step (and I recommend you do) I've renamed all the viewer artwork for you and uploaded them as a zip file here.

Installing

Once you have downloaded the XML and artwork files linked above, or created your own, installation is straightforward. Back up your skins and app_settings folders, then:

  • Copy colors.xml to \SecondLifeReleaseCandidate\app_settings\
  • Copy textures.xml to \SecondLifeReleaseCandidate\skins\textures
  • Copy all other xml files to \SecondLifeReleaseCandidate\skins\xui\[Language]
  • Copy all artwork to \SecondLifeReleaseCandidate\skins\textures (be sure to "Replace all")
  • Browse to \SecondLifeReleaseCandidate\skins\textures and delete "rounded_square.tga" and "rounded_square_soft.tga".
  • Restart Second Life

Congratulations, you now have a Classic skin for Viewer 1.20 (to replace Dazzle).
