Lyrical on German installations

Hello Astleigh,

let me please thank you for the awesome Lyrical plugin at first! It is really great for RP'ers like me.

Here in Germany we have an issue with the addon which gives us a hard time on either explaining others why they have to change the number format in the Win control panel to get Lyrical running or not be able to use it at all.

So here is the issue in detail:

The page numbers of individual texts and the current page are stored in the plugindata-file as a real datatypes which would be e.g. 1.000000 for the 1st page. But in Gemany that numer would be written as 1,000000 (I guess that is done by LUA on itself) As you can see, this leads to unexpected commas when reading the file on addon-startup.

So either German users cannot use Lyrical or change the number format in the OS so that it matches the US style. But the latter would have side effects in Excel (as a prominent example) because it would misinterpret all your calculations in a spreadsheet and destroy your excel-files.

There may be a simple solution to this: Store all page numbers (and only those) as integers stored as strings. So page 1 would be "1".

e.g.:

},
["page"] = 8.000000,
["position"] =
{

should be

},
["page"] = "8",
["position"] =
{

and of course

return
{
["lyrics"] =
{
[7.000000] = "Ein kleines Gedicht

would be

return
{
["lyrics"] =
{
["7"] = "Ein kleines Gedicht

You would have to convert the strings to int's internally again to calculate page numbers (when switching pages) and you would have to be able to work with old .plugindata files where the page numbers are stored as real's and convert them to int and then to string to store them in the new file format when unloading the addon from memory.

That would make the Addon usable everywhere where the numbers aren't formatted like in the US and ultimately it would make your addon perfect.

So... would that be possible for you to do?

greetings and a nice "Dankeschön" and /bow from Germany

Version 1.3 of Lyrical is released, it fixes the corrupted character bug when using diacritical marks, as well as the "special" apostrophes used by MS Word. Huzzah!

I think I know why Lyrical does not seem to be remembering the new poems put in it...

You mentioned earlier checking the Plugindata folder, and lyrical is not showing up there at all, even after four removal and installations. Hope this helps in fixing the problem. And it has been 1.2 that I have been attempting.

I just recieved this letter in my mailbox today. Turula Tenderfoot has found a clever workaround to the diacritical bug:

Quote:
I was rather struck by inspiration today, and as I didn't see anything on your lotrointerface page, I thought I'd send a message.

If you have a word with marked letters that you want to use in a song, you can just make an alias of that word and type the alias into Lyrical. I just tried it with an emote and it works wonders.

ie;
/alias add ;thrainn Ţráinn

Then in Lyrical:
/e waves to ;thrainn.

Clicking on it will generate an emote with the proper accented word, It's awesome.

I don't know if this has been mentioned or not, but I thought I'd let you know. Love the plugin, it makes my life so much easier!

Cheers!

I've released version 1.2 to fix the bug Iluviel and others have seen where Lyrical gets stuck playing the last line of a song.

Turbine's Beta_LuaPlugins.7z was breaking Lyrical due to a change in quickslot behavior. Only those who installed the more recent Turbine plugins (from Dec 1, 2010) would see this bug.

cannot save

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but I set lyrics and hit the save button.
it remembers them all just fine until I unload the plugins or logout? How do I get it to save what I want? the only thing that stays is the poem that came with it

Hello Astleigh!

First of all let me thank you for your plug-in which has a great potential. Even greater with the Yule festival and it Theater event.

I am experiencing the very same problem as Iluviel does. When I load the plug-in to game, it selects the first line of poem, but the button at the bottom of the plug-in window shows "IN M" from the last line (In Mordor...). When I click it my character says "IN Mordor..." and the selection moves to the second line, but the button still shows "IN M". When I click through the whole poem to the last line and click the button once more, selection moves to the first line and the button shows "GIL" and from now on everything works just fine.

I am also experiencing another problem. The plug-in outputs the text to the Say channel only, no matter what channel I have selected.

I am using EU client in English.

Can you take look at it please? Your plug-in is just awesome and I would like to use it in game.

Thanks in advance.

Elauriel


Here is my plug-in data file.

return
{
["lyrics"] =
{
[1.000000] = "Gil-galad was an Elven-king,\nOf him the harpers sadly sing:\nThe last whose realm was fair and free\nBetween the mountains and the sea.\n\nHis sword was long, his lance was keen.\nHis shining helm afar was seen.\nThe countless stars of heaven's field\nWere mirrored in his silver shield.\n\nBut long ago he rode away,\nAnd where he dwelleth none can say.\nFor into darkness fell his star;\nIn Mordor, where the shadows are."
},
["size"] =
{
["height"] = 400.000000,
["width"] = 400.000000
},
["page"] = 1.000000,
["position"] =
{
["left"] = 100.000000,
["top"] = 100.000000
}
}

I've updated Lyrical to version 1.1. It no longer depends on installing Turbine's Beta_LuaPlugins.7z. If you were having loading errors, give this version a try.

Re: bug?

Iluviel: what client are you using?

And can you send a copy of your lyrical data file when it is in the bugged state?

You should be able to find it at "The Lord of the Rings Online/PluginData/[yourusername]/AllServers/Lyrical.plugindata".

You could also try deleting this file and restarting to see if that clears the problem.

bug?

I experience some nastiness with this plugin.
It installed quite ok (apart from --> that Utils folder which wasn't included in my copy of Turbine folder that I downloaded, but a friend sent it to me, so nevermind).

The thing is, everytime I open this plugin and want to "sing" a song, the big button in the center show always the last line of the song and repeats it no matter how many times I click on it. When I position it on the first line, it still plays the last line. I've found a weird workaround - I position it on the last line and then click my way up to the first one without pressing the play button. When I'm on the first line then I begin saying the song a it is okay and says it in order. This happens with every song I add to Lyrical. Weird, what could be wrong?

Let me provide a screenshot - this is what I see when I first load Lyrical everytime I log into the game: notice how the highlight is on the first line, but the center button wants to play the last line (Mordor)
