Has anyone been able to get the options window to show up?

Code:
function sctCommand:Execute(cmd, args)
    if (args == L["options"] or args == "options") then
        -- Turbine.PluginManager:ShowOptions() 	  -- still crashes the client
      
     else
        Turbine.Shell.WriteLine(self:GetShortHelp());
    end
end
That commented line doesn't lie. If you uncomment it and try, it does crash the client. (at least, typing '/sct options' does).

I just thought I'd check here before digging into how to debug a plugin. Never dealt with lotro plugins before, so I'll have to figure out how to get a console dump (or equivalent) to track down the problem unless someone else got this working?

@Thurallor Thx for the Tip. In Fact there were no such function when i wrote it.

Unfortunately i dont play lotro anymore (at least at the moment), even i think its still a very cool game i dunno if i will come back in near future.
Main reason is that turbine is able to make cool expansions and stuff but not able to renovate the buggy and slow network code (which cause the lags) and the 6 year old gfx system and the user-interface that was designed for 1024x768 screens

Cool plugin. :-)

I don't know if SetStretchMode() was available when you originally wrote this, but now you can use it to zoom smoothly.

new version

I am currently testing with the RoR Beta and will release a bugfixed version when RoR is released.
By the way: it displays all combat log entries that are not shown yet. So if you have a slow scrolling speed and you are in a heavy and long combat this could need some mins even fight is over. But i will add a limit for this in future to stop events when combat ends.

Can you make it stop!

I've been playing with Scroling Combat text for a while now an have only one problem with it.... It won't stop!!!

There needs to be an easy way to shut it down -- when you forget you have it loaded and wind up in some large battle it simply can't keep up with the action.
It takes about 5 minutes for the scrolling to stop after the Wulf's Cleft instance, for example.

You can't unload it because you have not defined the "apartment" obviously.

/plugins unload ScrollingCombatText
"Plugin script state "ScrollingCombatText" could not be unloaded."

is the error you get.

The end result is you have to unload all plugins, mark Scrolling Combat Text to NOT load, and then reload your desired plugins.

Encountered a b ug...

I believe this occurred just as I was disabled/died ...

...he Rings Online\Plugins\ScrollingCombatText\Main.lua:492: attempt to compare number with nil

Was followed immediately by:
You cannot do that right now.
The Ox-clan Captain incapacitated you.

Combat log had (all 3 filters selected):
The Ox-clan Captain scored a hit with Light Injury on Val for 20 Common damage to Morale.
The Ox-clan Captain incapacitated you.
The Ox-clan Captain scored a devastating hit with a weak melee attack on Val for 412 Common damage to Morale.
You succumb to your wounds.

Cool, i noticed you were looking for help with french parser or something. I could help with translations to and from french if that's what you need.

Thanks for the great plugin

I noticed it does not show parry/block/evade or misses though.

If theres an option to turn this on please let me know. If not perhaps this could be implemented in a future version?

icons

No sorry, there is no way to get access to the spell icons at the moment.
maybe Turbine adds this feature in future.

I will add more text options in future versions.

Spell Icons

Is it possible to add icons to the floating messages that sct posts.
For example I cast Blade of Elendil and is does 1k damage that the message
look like this <spell icon> 1000 or <spell icon> Blade of Elendil 1000.


It woud be nice if the font size of messages from critical spells were greater
than the other messages.

I've tried versions 0.3.0 and 0.3.1.
I have english lotro installed on Win7 x64 eng.

If the author has provided an option panel that is accessible from the Plugin Manager the tab will now be available.
It worked! Thx man.

french

i will check the issue with french client soon. in current version is also a (small) bug, so i will patch it next days.

Update: i found the reason: there is no localized french parser yet
i use the parsers from combatanalysis, there's the same.
my french is poor but i could fix it (in V 0.3.1) at least to show SOME values, heal etc. dont work yet. if any one fixes the parser_fr.lua in locale directory would be nice
