Rep Panel
 
Description
This plugin will display non-inventory information for your alts. Currently it only has the Reputation, Stats, Traits and Notes panels from AltInventory 2.x. When version 1.00 is published it will include the Recipe panel from AtlInventory 2.x and the following release should include the Quests and Deeds panels.

The AltViewer plugin UI has a number of enhancements over the previous AltInventory 2.x UI. First, since the plugin does not show inventory related information I removed the Vault style graphics. Second, a number of changes were made to the way Panels are handled, most significantly, they can be completely disabled in the Options panel (except the Options panel itself for obvious reasons). This should eliminate the issues that plaqued AltInventory 2.x when Turbine updated their Lua environment causing client crashes - since each panel can be disabled separately, any panel with an issue can simply be prevented from loading, allowing the rest of the plugin to function normally. The Options are no longer managed in a separate window, rather there is an Options panel in the main window. in addition to being able to disable panels, users can choose to set a panel to load but remain hidden, allowing the panel to keep its data up to date without the icon showing - currently this isn't much of an issue but as additional panels are added, the user may want to temporarily hide some of the icons.

Additionally, if it becomes necessary, the icons are in a scrollable strip so there is no longer an issue with making room for new icons. If a user doesn't like the order of the icons, they can simply hold the Ctrl key and drag the icons to another location on the strip to change their order.

Known Issues:
The "ALL" character selection option has not been implemented, meaning that the ALL character Notes are not yet displayed (they are imported from AltInventory 2.x, they just aren't displayed).

The Traits panel is not translated for DE or FR (it wasn't translated in AltInventory). I chose to leave most of the Traits panel exactly as it was in AltInventory 2.x since Turbine has announced plans to change to a Trait Tree and I am waiting to see how that impacts the Traits panel.

The Rep panel will not automatically track rep tier changes for some of the DE/FR rep tiers. This is due to gender specific Titles which I have to research further. Note, you still have to initialize the Rep tiers manually, even for the EN client since this information is not exposed via the Lua interface.

Some users will note that their Rep tiers from AltInventory 2.x do no import correctly into AltViewer. This is due to a bug in the AltInventory tier structure which has been remedied in AltViewer.

Future plans:
Implementing the Recipes, Quest and Deeds panels.
Filtering and Sorting for the Rep panel.

____________________Installation__________________ __
To install the AltViewer plugin, unzip the entire zip file to your Plugins folder. If you had the game running when you installed the plugin, you will have to type "/plugins refresh" or close and restart the game.
To run the plugin, simply load it. Type "/plugins load altviewer" in your game chat window or set the plugin to load automatically from the Turbine Plugin Manager (type "/plugins manager" in chat or access from the System menu).
When you first close the AltViewer window, the icon will appear in the lower left corner of your display, you can drag it to any location you want by holding Ctrl while you drag it and the next time it loads it will remember it's location.

However, I had not set values for all factions, only for those that were listed in my reputation panel. Perhaps that is part of the problem, and I do need to set basic level for all ones I have no rep with yet?
Nope. Just a typo. Thanks for reporting this.

In line 337, the table name "faction" should be "factions" with an "s". The same typo occurs in line 344 This will be addressed in the next version but it will not be available until after HD is released (possibly quite a while after depending on how significant the Lua changes are in HD)

As a temporary workaround, if you are comfortable editing the files, line 337 of rep.lua should be:
Code:
    for k,v in ipairs(factionTier[factions[factionID][4]]["M"]) do
and line 344 should be:
Code:
     for k,v in ipairs(factionTier[factions[factionID][4]]["F"]) do
otherwise, you are probably best off manually updating the values until the next version of AltViewer.

The character delete button (looks like a skull) did not make it into ver 0.99 but will again be available in ver 1.00

Meanwhile, it is possible to remove the characters by editing the file "AltViewerCharList.plugindata" in the "documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\PluginData\AccountName\ServerName\AllCharacters" folder where AccountName is your account name and ServerName is the name of the server where the characters existed. The exact path to the file will vary depending on your OS. To remove a character, delete the entire section with the character's name, for instance:
Code:
 ["Testdummy"] = 
 {
  ["Class"] = "128",
  ["Race"] = "7",
  ["Alignment"] = "2",
  ["Level"] = "65"
 },
is the section for a character named Testdummy. You could alternately just delete the entire file and then relog each character to reacquire their data.

There are a couple of oddities:
  1. Wrong Stats: After installing the mod and loading all my alts, then playing for a couple days, I decided to upgrade one character's outfit. While looking at the stats I realized that the stats for that character were wrong. Since this mod "will display non-inventory information for your alts", I thought maybe those were my "naked", unmodified stats. Stripping down and removing all items (jewelry, armor/clothing and weapons), the stats still didn't match to anything.
  2. Universal Stats: Cycling through the stat data for all my alts, I noticed that each character had the exact same set of stats.
  3. Forced Update: If I selected a character repeatedly (3-5 times) from the combo box, eventually the stats for that character would change - although there were new stats, they were still wrong.
One thing that I think might be involved with regards to the wrong stats being displayed is changes made in Update 10/11.

Also, I noticed that I don't have any character related information in my ...\PluginData\... folder. There is the AltViewerSettings.plugindata which logically enough seems to only have Options settings. There is no other plugindata file I can see related to this mod. It's theoretically possible I've got a missing or corrupted character data file, but I cannot be certain.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
Thanks for the feedback.

The Stats bug is a known issue (see the two posts immediately before yours). Note, AltViewer will not be getting any updates until after Helm's Deep is released since there will be significant changes to the Traits and possibly Stats so there is no point in spending time fixing something that will only be thrown out in a couple of months, especially since the ToDo list has quite a few high priority items which are being addressed.

As to saved data, the data is not saved in the character folders. The data is saved per server, so it will be in the AllCharacters folder under the folder with the name of the Server for those characters: ("PluginData\AccountName\ServerName\AllCharacters")
There are currently four files in that folder associated with AltViewer: AltViewerCharList.plugindata, AltViewer_SlottedTraits.plugindata, AltViewer_FactionRep.plugindata and AltViewer_CharNotes.plugindata
As new panels are added, their data will also be stored in that folder and the plugindata file names will likely start with "AltViewer" (for instance, recipe data will likely be AltViewer_RecipeData.plugindata)

P.S. Thanks for specifying your OS version. It doesn't impact the current issue but it is still good to include.

Thanks for the feedback.

The Stats come from the Lua API so there won't be multiple sets per character. Traits on the other hand reflect values that the user controls and sets at the Bard. I have already considered adding sets of traits as I had been hoping that Turbine would some day allow us to retrait via Lua to eliminate the need for Bards. Unfortunately they don't seem to be headed in that direction (they haven't even exposed the currently set traits via Lua), but it may still be worth tracking trait sets to make retraiting easier. So, while this hasn't actually made it to the ToDo list, it definately has some value, however limited, and will likely be added at some time in the future (especially if Turbine ever does expose Traits to Lua).
