Item Scanner 1.1
 
Description
Item Scanner Compendium Extension (1.0)

about:
Provides a mechanism for people interested in discovering missing item data for item Compendium and/or other plugins and websites. While it can't determine the details regarding the items, like their name, level, and type.. It DOES find items that do not appear in the known list of items I've collected (primarily from lorebook). Currently scans appear to be showing ~ 17,600 items that Turbine doesn't publish.

A portion of these items are trash items of common quality. These primarily deal with quest objects or interactive objects.

NOTE: Not intended but for item discovery use only.

CHANGES:

1.1
  • additional pagination buttons for quicker navigation of scan data
  • ability to link a discovered item to chat
  • visual display of item id
  • navigation to a particular item id

1.0 - Initial release


INSTALL:
  1. Download and uncompress LoTRO Compendium plugin into your plugins folder (i.e. C:\Documents and Settings\Lunarwater\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins)
  2. Download an uncompress Item Scanner addon into same location. If you did everything correctly, all files that were uncompressed should now be in a folder "Compendium"

USE:
  1. Start LOTRO.
  2. Once in game type /plugins load Compendium
  3. Upon loading, a new tab will appear in Compendium called "Item Scanner"
  4. Click scan if it is the first time you have loaded item scan extension.. Please be patient.
  5. After 2-3 minutes it should finish and you can start cataloging new items.
Your work gets saved to

C:\Documents and Settings\Lunarwater\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\PluginData\Your Account\AllServers\CompendiumItemScanner.plugindat a

Please back this file up if you do a lot of work.

WARNING!!!

Never scan overtop work you have already done. It should disable scan
button after initial try, but you never know.. bugs might crop up.

FUTURE PLANS
  1. Make it so you can rescan w/o losing data.
  2. Add additional data points that can be annotated for items
  3. Add easier way to export data for submission.

PLEASE
Consider coordinating with others in the comments below and/or post your data file if you catalog some items. I'll review and see if we can get put into Item Compendium.

Thanks for the great plugin! I use this with compendium all the time.

I'd like to make a feature request:
Add a bookmark feature that we can label so we don't have to dig through mounds of trash to get back to that set of items we were looking for. I find myself spending lots of time clicking 1 page at a time because i don't want to jump over it with 10 and cant remember where it is. I should just right it down, but an in-game option would be nice. seems straight forward enough.
Thanks for the plugin

You were right, was just the encoding, when i did save it as ANSI it did worked fine and now the buttons are not corrupted. you might want to force a Position instead of get the Automatic ones because otherwise when rohan hits here it will be broken :\

jumpBackBtn:SetPosition(150,500);

This is how i did ended the code.
Take care lunar.

I was trying this in Beta and the buttons position are broken, well i though "ok, not big deal, i will just force the position of the buttons" when i found this issue.

I got the unability to edit the files. If I changed 1 number, save it, and then i changed the number to be the same as before and save it again. I literally changed nothing right?

Well if i do that the plugin breaks with these errors
Code:
... the Rings Online\Plugins\Compendium\Extensions\AdvPaginationControl.lua:1: '=' expected near ''
...\Plugins\Compendium\Extensions\ItemBrowseControl.lua:24: Failed to import package "Compendium.Extensions.AdvPaginationControl".
...ins\Compendium\Launcher\CompendiumLauncherWindow.lua:380: attempt to call local 'cls' (a nil value)
My only though about is that i'm using Windows Notepad to edit the file (Never had an issue with it before until now). Could you explain me or just fix how to edit the files so we can try it in Rohan Beta?
Off the top of my head my guess is notepad probably either removed some necissary newline characters or stripped some of the utf8 encoding on the resource.lua file. My lotro hasn't been patched in a while but you are welcome to PM me and I'll give u email you can send zip file to.

I am very curious to learn how you created a file showing ONLY the items added after an update???

I can get the two different scan files (one taken just before update, and moved to a safe folder, then a new scan performed after the update)...

...but how do I use the two files to make one that shows ONLY the items that are added after update?? What software or technique did you use to make the file quoted above??

Thanks!
I use a utility called "diff". If you have linux or mac it comes by default and you can use it from the console. For windows, I think you can download various flavors of a diff utility, Gnuwin32 has a project that has ported many of these great utilities to windows.

I basically do..

diff -u itemfilefromupdate5.plugindata itemfilefromupdate6.plugindata > differences.txt

then you should have a file "differences.txt" that has a bunch of pluses and minuses infront of various lines. I then use the grep command (should come from same place if you got diff) to just grep the lines that start with or end with + or -. Then it is a matter of just opening a good file editor, search and replace off the + and - from front of lines, and put the header and footer of the .plugindata back on it that itemscanner likes.

Hope all that made sense. I'm sure a script could be made to do this vs using command line tools.

Hello!! FANTASTIC plugin

I am very curious to learn how you created a file showing ONLY the items added after an update???

I can get the two different scan files (one taken just before update, and moved to a safe folder, then a new scan performed after the update)...

...but how do I use the two files to make one that shows ONLY the items that are added after update?? What software or technique did you use to make the file quoted above??

Re: basic questions

Quote:
1- What is this scanning?
Items in my Pac?
Items in my vault?
curent list of "stuff" at data.lotro.com?
It finds items that are not reported on data.lotro.com, or lorebook. It does this by scanning the range of item ids, choosing an id that current isn't included in Compendiums DB (which has 50,000 of known ids that I've collected over past 2 expansions), and then tries to see if the LUA API can indicate if it is a valid item id or not. It does this by attempting to use the id as various kinds of quickslots, and capturing the error responses that the game provides back. Once scanned, it will have around 17,600 items that need to be accounted for by preferably Turbine, or perhaps the wiki community . The UI for the Item Scanner was a quick attempt at a excel like interface to allow users to annotate the found items. Changes to your annotating get saved to the file mentioned in the description above. This file can be used, with a little effort parsing or using LUA outside of Lotro to pull the list into a more manageable database. My hope was that by providing this, it might spark some interest in community regarding 1) what do we do with these items, and 2) can there be an effort to split up the 17k items into smaller chunks for folks to go through, until which time Turbine can add them to their publicly accessable database.


Quote:
2- Should I run this on each of my Toons? They are all diffferent classes and professions?
Or put another way... what am I doing with this?
The data gets saved account wide and has nothing to do with your character. It is meant for item discovery.

Quote:
3- I have a new Item (which I know is not in lorebook/data.lotro.com) -- jewelry from a Steel-bound lootbox.
Can I simply "drag and drop it someplace?
While this kind of feature is related to item discovery, this would probably end up being apart of the Compendium plugin itself, vs this extension. The drag of an item to a quickslot can give us the id and the name of the item. Such a drag and drop could be added to help fill in the annotated name of item and save person from having to type it in.

Quote:
4- Once I install this, will it show up in the LPC (java version?) it does not show up now. (looking for a name starting like "Item Scanner."
I have not added it to LPC as a managed plugin, because I have not fully though out how Addon / Patch plugins should work. They are a different beast, and while they could be added to the datafeed LPC uses, the way dependencies are managed are a bit more complicated than the LPC app can handle at this moment.

Quote:
5- you mention backing up the output file ... does that file get sent to you? or is this generating a local database visible only to myself?
At this stage the file belongs to you and no automated submission is done (this topic bring many things to mind, but probably not scope of this question). You can send it to me if you've filled out items with it and would like to see them included in future release of Compendium. For a true collaborative effort of annotating items, the interface should probably be improved upon. I am not the best at best at making the plugin UI's. Perhaps such an effort could pull in other team members. And the support of lotro-wiki folks who might be interested in cataloguing items that are missing from data.lotro.com and/or lorebook.
