Description
Bevy O' Bars
bev∑y/'beve/Noun
1. A large group of people or things of a particular kind.
2. A group of birds, particularly when closely gathered on the ground.
What is it?
Allows the user to create quickslot bars of any size they want with options to be faded out of combat etc. Different back colours can be added also to help identify bars quickly.
There are a series of videos (with my less than radio quality voice) showing what the plugin can do;

How to use?
Unzip to the Plugins folder.
You will also need Turbines standard code and DeusDictums Dragbar
If you have the DE or FR client the you will also need this.

Note: Now includes the Turbine and Deusdictum code as part of the zip.

How to start
load BevyOBars2 using the inbuilt manager. If you notice missing items in your quickslots then use the auto-loader file instead.
Slash Commands
/BB
Shows a list of slash commands
/BB module
To select optional modules
/BB show
To show all bars regardless of opacity or fade setting. To reset type /BB show again.
/BB nobar
To create a new bar, should you delete them all by accident.
/BB bar
To show a list of all bars.
Snapping
When the UI is unlocked the dragbar can be used to move bars around, holding down Alt will snap the bars to an invisible 16px grid. Bars will snap to each other upon drop, unless shift is held down when moving. (Note: Bars don't snap to each other if you hold alt!)
Options
Most options can be found by unlocking the Ui and clicking on the "+" button at the top left of every bar. Note that this hides the first quickslot (there were layering problems). This allows you to add new bars, delete bars and open the full option dialog. Here you can change the size of a bar, it's padding, icon size, colour and background opacity.
Optional Modules

Key Modifiers
NEW!This module adds the ability to add key modifiers to bars; show on shift/alt/control or show only when none of those are pressed
Build Store
NEW!This module adds a button to the game that allows you to have several bar builds. See the video on YouTube for details.

I expect this to cause some sort of bug - please back up your bevy save if you have one. If you really want to avoid any clashes at all reload all plugins after switching builds. A quick way to do this is to install Reloader and do a /rl after loading a build. This shouldn't be necessary, but I believe in trying to head off any issues!
Monitor
This was a feature request for DreadApex.
Bars will monitor the current buffs and debuffs on a player and if any of a list of buffs is there (or not there) then the bar will show. Spelling must be perfect! The module contains a feature that collects buffs per class and records them to make this easier. I have used this to create bars to remind me to use certain buffs or foods, to stay in certain stances, to pop up my anti-stun skills when stunned etc etc.
This essentially makes the Stance and Proc modules (for everyone except Runekeepers, Hunters and Champions) unnecessary.
Combat
Whereas the fader module, below, will fade a bar dependant on combat status and mouse over it will never hide a bar completely - ie it can still be seen by the mouse even if invisible. This module allows complete bar hiding dependant on combat status.
Stance
Bars that only appear when you are in selected stances. (NOTE: Wardens, according to Turbine, don't have stances)
Fader
Allows you to change the opacity of a bar in and out of combat and on mouse over.
PopUps
Changes the bar so that it collapses when a slot is clicked on, replacing the Base slot with the icon that is clicked on. Right clicking just opens/close and left clicking activates the icon. i.e. the same as my popups plugin!
LPM
Hides the bar till you are low on Power or Morale. Yes, I said I would never add this feature...
Proc
There are proc modules for most classes; for example the Runekeeper module allows you to select bars to only appear when at a certain attunement level, Guardian shows bars on parry/block etc.
Debuff

Shows bars when a certain category of de/buff hits. NOTE: Not well tested yet!
Skin

This module allows you to apply a graphical skin to the bars. You will need to adjust gap/pad to make it display correctly. If you wish to add more skins then add a 64x64 tga to the skins directory in BevyOBars and add its name to the SkinList in there too! NOTE: If you edit a skin you will need to reload the game for the graphic to change, just like the main skins.
Label
Makes the "name" label show on the bar.
NOTE: Certain Proc modules have not been well tested, for example the minstrel module (I don't have a minstrel). The Burglar module didn't work at all - Turbine has not activated the code yet, despite it being in the LUA documentation. Also, these are based NOT on scanning buffs, but the new functions provided in the LUA code. So, be aware that they cannot detect everything.

NOTES:
Many thanks to DeusDictum, D1Hicks, Valdacil, Garan, Ganoderma, Pengoros, Kragen...
Major rep+++ to DreadApex who has been doing stirling work in motivating me to add new modules and playtesting them for me.

This plugin was made by me, for me! I hope you get some good use from it. If not, please be constructive with your comments - I don't get paid for this!
I have NOT tested this with non-English clients. Sorry.
Apart from the core plugin - which I feel is of beta quality, built on the beta turbine code - I consider this to be Alpha work. There WILL be bugs!
Known Bugs
The Burglar proc module and Hunter Parry response do not work at all and have been disabled.
Sometimes when you delete a bar the plugin throws errors. Reloading the plugin fixes this. Everytime I track one source of this down another appears...
Change Log
Code:
17-12-11 Change Log now stored in the comments section below, from now on no more comments here. 14/12/11 Eili took pity on my art skills and provided some better icons! 13/12/11 Due to the Turbine Loader Bug, I have added an alternative load wrapper for those that want to use the Turbine Plugin Manager. This sticks a big ugly (my art skills are poor!) icon in the middle of the screen when the plugin first loads, but stops you losing items. If you are using this then DO NOT select Bevy to autoload as well. 8/12/11 Another attempt at a bug fix! This one with the option sliders - be warned. May be funky. 28/11/11 Attempted bug fix 23/10/11 Skinnable Version Isil: Changed a few lines to allow better skinning. Many thanks to Eili for the work they have done. If you move the file "isil.lua" from the Isil folder to the Bevy2 folder then the hiderbar will be recoloured to better fit the isil scheme. Eili also re-coloured all the skins, so I have uploaded all their work here too... 2/10/11 Minor bugfix in monitor module. What confuses me is it shouldn't have worked *at all* and yet I have had months of happy playtime. Confused? Yes. 3/9/11 Added the spikadelia Label Module (version 1!) Very much untested, but thought I would get it here quick as I am not sure I will use it myself! 8/8/11 Just a change to the text above - but thanks to Egowelt for reminding me about Bootstrap! 3/7/11 Now multi-lingual - I hope! - if you install this. Unlike other patches this does not invalidate the English language saves. Or it shouldn't. This feature is pretty much untested as I only have the English language client!

LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!

THANK YOU MrJackdaw for this fantabulous plugin. It's just what I needed to de-clutter my screen and streamline my gameplay, a million thank yous!

I love that you have class options; I've already set up my hunter to have certain skills show only when she's achieved a certain measure of focus. I'm anxious to try out a few others, like minstrel and runekeeper, sweet! But one question.

I haven't seen a Loremaster option under my modules for my LM. Does one exist? I have the plugin loaded, and when I log in to my LM, I type /BB module and a list comes up, but there's nothing for Loremaster. Am I doing something wrong? I'd love to have a module that allows for certain skills to show up only when the "flanked" effect occurs. Is this possible?

Thanks again! Beers at the Bird and Baby on me.

I have the same problem using 1920x1080 resolution. Would love to know if there's a fix for this.
I suspect you are running in "Full Screen (Windowed)" mode in which case this is a bug in the underlying client that will be addressed in update 16.5. If you wish to manually address this before 16.5 is released, you can temporarily switch to "Full Screen" mode, set your resolution to your desktop resolution, save settings, then switch back to "Full Screen (Windowed)" resolution and restart the client. All plugins should then get the correct screen size and behave correctly.

Excellent plugin. However, I am not getting it to save changes to the items I place in the bars. If I move an item out and replace it with something else it reverts back each time I log in. Any suggestions?

Some further explaination

Hello MrJackDaw.

This is a wonderful plugin. Takes a bit to set it up, but it is well worth it. There are, however, a few modules that I cannot quite figure out how to use:

1 - HiderBar
2 - Low Power/Moral
3 - Debuff
4 - Buff Monitor
5 - Show/Hide on Key Modifiers

It could very well be that I am too new to LOTRO and using plugins, but I sure would appreciate some help.

Thanks in advance.

problem getting Bevy to work again

I get this in red letters in the chat panel when I log in:
Turbine has not enabled Burglar IsCriticalTier1Available(). The Burglar module will not work!

Also, when I try to make a pop-up bar and add buttons by sliding the bar in "pop up bar options", i get:
...Rings Online\Plugins\JackdawPlugins\Bevy2\popups.lua:77: attempt to index field 'PopButton' (a nil value)

I have managed to make & customize (size, position, opacity, etc) several bars, but not pop-ups.

Anyone know from these what I'm doing wrong?

I'd appreciate any help.

Version 459

Version 459 - Bug fixes

In this version:
  • Stance Module - Now should detect if the class has no stances and unload itself if none are detected. (Thanks to Dwahlin)
  • AutoLoader - has a new option to load without modules.

If bevy throws an error and will not load please use BevyoBars2AutoLoader instead of BevyoBars2 in the "Manage Plugins" screen.

This gives you a big button to push to load the main plugin and now (NEW!) gives you a button to clear all the modules. This will allow you to stop bevy loading modules that are throwing errors. I know this is not ideal, but it's the best I can do.

I realise there has been a long absence - I am back for a little while!

Exclamation Not working on alts

I've fallen in love with these bars and tried to set it up on an alt. All went well until I relogged. Now the plugin doesn't auto-load at start up. If I manually load it, it says it fails. It'll load the bars and I can use them, but I can't edit them. The Options menu does not come up. I've tried using the included auto-loader but it hasn't helped. The alt it was originally set up on still works fine. HELP!

Just checked Lotro as I thought I might play it again for a while - to find that my plugin is quite badly broken. Depressing to the point of logging out again...
