Description
Mouse Cursor Highlighter Advanced
version 3.06 (8th May 2013)
by Fortunis (of Laurelin)

Ever died all because you couldnt see where the mouse pointer was and unable to hit the potion or other icon needed to save you?.

Are you a healer and sometimes miss healing someone because youve lost sight of the mouse cursor?

Do you have any sight problems and you have trouble seeing where the mouse cursor/pointer is at the best of times?

Well this plugin can help remove the frustration of this.


A very limited Youtube Review by
Casual Stroll to Mordor http://youtu.be/9HRnRmD9wwU

A YouTube video of someone using MCHA with Combat Only option. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...PuUrppQ#at=202

Features-
  • NEW to v3.04 Compatible with LOTRO Plugin Compendium.
  • NEW to v3.04 Disabled the Welcome Image/Screen.
  • NEW to v3.04 Removed the Turbine Library folder. (read installation info below)
  • Components that are useless when combat swap is enabled are now greyed out.
  • Choice between 3 RGB Colour Sliders or a [Colour Picker supplied by Garan's rework of Galuhad's code].
  • An Alpha Blend and size sliders. Size = (5x5 to 600x600 pixels)
  • You have the option to enable profile swapping, depending on combat status. Select the profiles via the 2 buttons, 'In Combat = Profile#' and 'Out of Combat = Profile#'
  • 4 Blend modes to switch between via the use of the Blend Mode button.
  • 22 different image highlighters, each with transparent trim or solid trim.
  • Trim Toggle button to switch between trim opacity images.
  • Highlighter Select button that pops-up a scrollable menu of all the images in the folder(s).
  • Combat only (checkbox). For when you only want MCHA to be active in combat only.
  • 3 Profiles plus a general settings profile savable/loadable (4 total). The 3 profiles have commands so you can link them to a quickslot for fast and easy switching. (Check readme file for more info)
  • MCHA On/Off (Checkbox). Well urm yeh
  • Ability to add your own images to MCHA. Unlimited amount can be added (Check readme file for more info on how to add your images)

Screenshots-

The screenshots provided unfortunatly dont show the mouse pointer, its impossible to capture. The mouse pointer is drawn ontop of the highlighter, so isnt affected in any way by colouring. You'll need to imagine it in the center of the highlighter images, sorry.



Installation-


Unzip or drag the 'Fortunis' folder from the zip file, to 'My Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins' folder.

MCHA requires Turbine Library installed to operate properly. If your using LOTRO Plugin Compendium (LPC) then it will update/install automatically. If your not using LPC, grab the turbine library from this thread here and place the Turbine folder inside your plugins folder. OR you can download one of my older versions of MCHA (3.03 or earlier), which has the turbine library files included.

Usage-
  • /mcha (Toggles the options menu and loads the general profile settings)
  • /mcha toggle (Toggles MCHA on and off)
  • /mcha profile1 (loads profile1 settings)
  • /mcha profile2 (loads profile2 settings)
  • /mcha profile3 (loads profile3 settings)

Adding your own images-
Check the readme file that came with the plugin for instructions. After youve made some, please share with the community here. Please note that you must follow the rules of the lotrointerface site.. i.e. no nudity images etc.



Things to do at a later time-
  • Fix any known issues.
Known Issues-
  • none

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update v3.06
  • - Fixed the file/folder structure of the zip.
  • - Replaced the load code with the code that Garan posted in comments.

Sorry for any inconvenience. I took it that Garan sent me the full mcha zip, but he hadnt. Obviously my judgement was wrong

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Update v3.05
  • - Fixed the issue of loading/saving for German and French clients.

I had fixed this issue in version 1.01, but i guess changes in the API have broke it recently.

I personally have not tested this update as i do not play lotro anymore. Garan, a well respected plugin author, here at lotrointerface kindly made the fixes and handed me this version to update this page. So my thanks go to him for this one.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

MouseCursorHA Plugin and iMac Lotro Game Crashes

I had been playing LOTRO on a fairly new iMac with OS version 10.12.4 and without any system crashes. Someone told me about cool plugins so I investigated and loaded several one of which was MouseCursorHA (latest version). Not long after, while playing the game with my new plugins I started experiencing game crashes *(i.e., the game would just immediately stop and go to desktop). I unloaded all the plugins and started troubleshooting by loading them back one at a time trying to find if any of them contributed to the issue. I finally pinpointed MouseCursorHA as the plugin consistently causing my LOTRO gameplay to crash. I really love this plugin (many thanks to the author for all the hard work put into it) but can't use it and would love to pursue whatever avenue it would take to try and remedy this issue. If there are any ideas out there please let me know. Thanks in advance for any and all help!

Re: Feature Request: No image timing or placement offset

**[Is it possible to set the timing and placement offsets to zero? Effectively causing the user-defined image to appear as an always on, multi-colored shadow, constantly displayed directly under the cursor with no trail of images while the cursor is being moved?]**

Changing its postion is possible by editting the Main.lua file.
1. goto function MCHA:Update()
2. mess about with codes that have SetPosition in them.

I cant be accurate on what to do, as i havnt touched this code for a very long time and i dont have lotro to test any changes.

---

'Timing' i assume you mean the speed in which the image is updated. Unfortunatly the image is updated as fast as it possibly can. I added no code to slow it down.

---

for the other things u mention. MCHA has the function to have the highlighter on constantly, and theres instructions on how to add your own images to it, in the readme.txt. Also at the top of Main.lua are some instructions also.

Feature Request: No image timing or placement offset

I realize this plugin isn't being actively supported by Fortunis at this time, but I've been looking for a particular feature and though I would ask anyway - just in case.

Is it possible to set the timing and placement offsets to zero? Effectively causing the user-defined image to appear as an always on, multi-colored shadow, constantly displayed directly under the cursor with no trail of images while the cursor is being moved?

This would, effectively, allow something like a 200%-ish enlarged cursor that acts normally within the game, but just looks bigger.

Is there any way to do this, fairly easily, for the existing plugin?

Edit: I see that Fortunis already uploaded v 3.06 which should fix the issues.

There is no main folder in the 3.05 ZIP-file.
So itīs not working with the plugin compendium, too.
The 3.05 ZIP-file just contains:

images
VindarPatch.lua
readme.txt
Save.lua
__init__.lua
ColorPicker.lua
Load.lua
Main.lua
OptionsWindow.lua

I installed the 3.04 version instead and copied the files from the 3.05 version into the 3.04 folder. Works fine for me.

Missing .plugin files

There are no .plugin files in 3.0.5. I'm not really sure how to use it without those. Any help?

The european client loading/saving fix update has been uploaded (v3.05). Thanks to Garan for this one

Im unable to test it myself, but i fully trust Garan and expect it to be working. If not im sure he would be willing to help anyone who finds an issue with it.

I had fixed this issue on an earlier version (v1.01) but i guess the API has changed since and broke the way my code handled this issue.

As always.. Enjoy the plugin!
Many thanks...Fortunis
Note, existing users will either have to delete their settings file before loading ver 3.05 or apply the change below. The settings file is "MCHA.plugindata" in your documents folder at ".. Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\PluginData\accountname\AllServers".

To avoid deleting your settings, you can replace load.lua with the following:
Code:
print = Turbine.Shell.WriteLine;
if (tonumber("1,000")==1) then
 function euroNormalize(value)
  return tonumber((string.gsub(value,"%.",",")));
 end
else
 function euroNormalize(value)
  return tonumber((string.gsub(value,",",".")));
 end
end
MCHA = class(Turbine.UI.Window);
function LoadSettings()
 settings = PatchDataLoad(Turbine.DataScope.Account, "MCHA");
 if type(settings) ~= "table" then
  settings = { };

  settings.InCom = false;
 end

  settings.oocp = "1";

 else

 end

  icp = settings.icp;
 end

  CombatOnlyCB:SetChecked(settings.temp);
 end

  trim = "Solid";
 else
  trim = "Transparent";
 end
 mcha.selectedItem = settings.p3image;
 mcha:SetBackground( "Fortunis/MCHA/images/" .. trim .. "Trim/" .. settings.p3image .. ".tga" );
 return settings;
end
Just copy the entire code block above and paste it in load.lua (removing the existing contents of load.lua first). You will still have to fix your colors when you next load MCHA but you won't have to locate and delete the settings file.

Sorry I missed this until after the update was sent to Fortunis, but hopefully he can publish this change to eliminate the need to delete the settings file.

The european client loading/saving fix update has been uploaded (v3.05). Thanks to Garan for this one

Im unable to test it myself, but i fully trust Garan and expect it to be working. If not im sure he would be willing to help anyone who finds an issue with it.

I had fixed this issue on an earlier version (v1.01) but i guess the API has changed since and broke the way my code handled this issue.

As always.. Enjoy the plugin!
Many thanks...Fortunis

I would be willing to bet you are using the DE or FR client. This is a known issue with the saved data format being incompatible with the load function. The correct way to fix this is for the author to update the plugin but it may be that this plugin is no longer being maintained.

The color values are stored as decimal values and in the DE/FR client the decimal is written as a comma (",") but on load the value can not be parsed and causes the error. To fix this, numeric values need to be encoded as strings before being saved and converted back to numbers after being loaded. Additionally, the string should be coerced into the correct numeric format for the client version being run at load time so that the decimal character becomes irrelevant even if the user changes clients. This is all covered in the post:
http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.p...97#post5784197

Unfortunately, if the plugin is not being maintained, that doesn't do you much good. The best you can do is apply the Vindar patch found here:
http://www.lotrointerface.com/downlo...anclients.html
and then delete your existing .plugindata settings file. Look for MCHA.plugindata which should be in the ..\PluginData\accountName\AllServers folder where accountName is your account name (the exact path to this folder varies by OS and client version but the file name will be "MCHA.plugindata"). After applying the patch and deleting the existing file, you can load the plugin and it should work as long as you do not change client versions (i.e. if you are using DE or FR, do not switch to EN ).

EDIT:
Fortunis, if you are still around, send me a PM and I can send you the minimum changes to resolve this issue - would save you some time.

Your missing the turbine library files. Read the installation instructions above and/or use LPC (LOTR Plugin Compendium) as mentioned in the installation instructions.

Yea I thought as much but being pretty dumb when it comes to PC's I had a look in the file i downloaded from Lotro but it was full of things I had no clue what i was doing so opted for the plug-in compendium! as Ive said above all is working perfect now thanks very much for your prompt reply and a very handy plug-in! cheers
