Some code is borrowed from Emo by Scott Powers and Songbook by Chiran. Thank you to these authors for their work, without which Lyrical would not have been possible.

Thanks and additional comment on

...Rings Online\Plugins\Astleigh\Lyrical\MainWindow.lua:317 : attempt to concatenate field 'path' (a nil value)

I think this may be some conflict with songbook. I had songbook installed and then installed lyrical and got this message when I tried to open a file. So, I uninstalled both, reinstalled lyrical first and then songbook and all seems to work ok now.

Thanks for the great plug-in! Music brings a whole new level to Lotro!

It sounds like you were using 1.5. I'm still not sure why it failed. I tested loading with version 1.5 savedata and experienced no problems.

Re: Re: Bug and Workaround

I honestly don't recall which version, though it was probably the one just prior. I updated my installation from last December, then after I had done that, I remember seeing a new update just a few days later and that was the current one.

Edit: Hmm...I'm getting them confused. The current one is 2.2, so I would have updated to 2.1 from whatever was out in December. It would have been a new plugindata file, though, because I lost all of my old data in the reinstallation of the game and everything. Don't know if that's relevant or not.

Re: Bug and Workaround

Thanks for the bug report, Sorrieah. Its supposed to automatically convert the file format from older versions, but it sounds like you found a case where that didn't work.

What version were you running before you upgraded to 2.1?

Bug and Workaround

Starting today, when I tried to open any songs I would get the error:

...Rings Online\Plugins\Astleigh\Lyrical\MainWindow.lua:317 : attempt to concatenate field 'path' (a nil value)

I fixed it by going into lyrical.plugindata and adding a

["path"] = "Data"

tag to each file that was saved before folders were implemented. I didn't try it with an empty path name, just put Data as a dummy path. Now it's working just fine.

(Anyone trying this, don't forget to put a comma at the end of the line before the ["path"] tag.)

I have the new version but am getting the following:

Main.lua:15: attempt to index global 'mainWindow' (a nil value)

and no Lyrical loaded.

EDIT: NVM, fixed it

I'm really sorry, but I introduced another bug with version 1.5. If you don't have the Turbine plugins installed, loading will fail. I released 1.6 to fix this.

Good news! I finally found and fixed a bug preventing songs from saving, as some have reported. If you loaded other plugins at the same time as Lyrical, it could prevent the data from being saved. Upgrading to Lyrical 1.5 should fix the problem.

Here's some additional info for those experiencing problems with save files not loading or not being regenerated.

I changed the file format between Lyrical 1.3 and 1.4 to fix a bug with European locales. (Technical explanation: numeric array indices were changed to strings to work around problems parsing "," as the decimal separator) The old save files are incompatible with 1.4. If you try, you will get the following error:

Quote:
... Rings Online\Plugins\Astleigh\Lyrical\LyricsBox.lua:27: attempt to index local 'lines' (a nil value)
If you delete the old Lyrical.plugindata, Lyrical will regenerate a save file in the new format. The save data won't be written to disk until you either log out, or use the command "/plugins unload". This is a limitation of the plugin framework designed to sandbox plugins from the rest of the system.

If you are still not seeing the save file being written after unloading your plugins, leave a comment.

I hope this helps!

Hi Dwarrowlove, sorry to hear you are having problems. I've received comments from others who are having issues with save files, but I haven't been able to reproduce this bug.

Any additional info you can provide will help.

Are you using the latest version of lyrical?

Do you use German or French locale?

Untill one day it no longer saved my new files.
Can you think of anything different you did that day? Such as, installing something new, upgraded client, upgraded lyrical, LOTRO crashed, etc.

Quote:
So I read on this forum and took the advice and deleted the userdata file...
After you did this, is it regenerating the save file? Can you post it here?

"Posting a note to let people know that Lyrical 1.4 should continue to work in Rise of Isengard."


Not for me though, still same issue, tried everything listed here. As there is no support on this I will remove the application and try to find something else. It's a shame though, I liked the application when it worked.

I need some help here.
I have used Lyrical for a month or so, and all worked fine.
Untill one day it no longer saved my new files.
So I read on this forum and took the advice and deleted the userdata file...
Unfortunately the result is the same.
I'm stuck with the standard note "Gil-galad was an elven king..." and can't add anything else.
What can I do about this??
Please help!

This wonderful plugin won't load for me since RoI. I'm getting the following error:

Quote:
... Rings Online\Plugins\Astleigh\Lyrical\LyricsBox.lua:27: attempt to index local 'lines' (a nil value)
version: 1.4
other plugins: KragenBars, Buffbars, Palantir, Songbook etc. - all loading fine (after updates)

lyrical.plugindata won't reappear if I delete the earlier one, though I got around the other loading bug by adding the 'pages' variable manually to the file. I'm trying to understand the workings of the plugin, but can't see the logic at that spot.


Update: got it to run after further editing the old .plugindata to include quotation marks around the array item indexers and turning them to integers, as suggested by Glenwin. Now it will also create a new .plugindata... strange.
