Description
Lotro Mod Manager

The Lotro Mod Manager is a tool to help manage mods that interface with the Lord of the Rings Online game. This tool allows people with very little computer experience to enjoy all the mods available for Lord of the Rings Online.

So how does it work?
The Mod Manager keeps its own set of plugins. When you want to use one, you can activate the mod (which just copies it into your LotRO\plugins directory) and then all you do is load the mod using the in-game commands.

Simple!

When you download and extract the latest.zip file, you will see a folder with 'Sample Downloads'. Just drag and drop the mods you want into the mod manager.
Once you have done that, right-click on a mod and select 'Activate'.

Isn't there's already a Plugin Manager?
If you are thinking of PluginManager by Cearbhall, then that is a plugin manager for INSIDE LotRO.

This Lotro Mod Manager will put folders inside your LotRO\Plugins directory that Cearbhall's Plugin Manager can detect. It will detect the plugins when you type in "/plugins load manager" inside Lotro.

I've made my own plugin, how can I make a LotroMod?

The Mod Manager can automatically work with your existing plugins. All you need to do is drag and drop your plugin zip file on to the Mod Manager window and you will automatically be asked to fill in some information about it.

Once you have filled in your information, right click on your plugin in the Mod Manager window and choose "Export to LotroMod". Then you can share your LotroMod file with the whole world!

Currently, the Mod Manager works with Lua Plugins, although we are constantly developing and are planning to tackle the interface.

Note: Please be aware that this Mod Manager requires .Net Framework 4.0, which you can download from the Microsoft website here.
The standard install comes with the following plugins:
  • BuffBars
  • DragBar
  • Emo
  • Horsey
  • Lotropad
  • Palantir
  • PluginManager
  • TonicBars
  • TravelWindow
  • Standard Turbine Utilities & API

NOTE: These mods are being packaged for your convenience. You will find credits and author attribution in the plugin description. If you are a plugin author, you are encouraged to release your own LotroMod version here

I love this utility and use it for all of my plugins (up until now). It seems that I'm having trouble with this program dealing with two plugins by the same author. It installed both, enables both, but then only one can be loaded from within the game. When I check the directory structure only one of the two plugins are actually installed despite showing up in the manager as enabled.

Any advice or ideas on how to correct this?

Thanks for your hard work.

The only thing missing from this awesome tool is an auto-updater for listed mods

There are updates to existing mods in this app, is there anyway to make installing update easier without having to uninstall this ?

Bug?

I'm not sure if this is known, but it looks like (in v1.0.0) the metadata update dialog is set to reset the
Code:
<folder type="plugin">xxx</folder>
to
Code:
<folder type="plugin">plugin</folder>
every time it is saved. Tends to get confused a lot for me.

By skin support, do you mean similar functionality for LotRO Interfaces?

If so, then yes, that is in the pipeline once we fix up the initial plugin issues.

Nice!

I don't know if you saw my suggestion in your thread earlier but just for the record are you planning to give this baby a skin support as well ?
