Description
Event Timer allows you to set timers for any event up to 170 hours in the future (1 week) for all characters on the same server. I use it to track Auctions, Quest cool-downs, and Guild Crafting items that have a cool-down timer. If you play multiple characters, it can really help to remember when to switch alts for an event. You can also use it to pass item links between alts. There is even a stand-alone version that lets you check on events when not running LOTRO.

Command summary:
"/et" Display event list
"/et clear" Clear all events
"/et name" Toggle name appending
"/et <#>" Delete event on line #
"/et <#> <hrs>" Change event time on line #
"/et <#> <desc>" Add event in # hours

Updates:
07/13/13: 1.1 _ Added ET_Reader for out-of-game display of events.
07/12/13: 1.0.1 _ Moved Options menu to Common folder.
02/10/13: 1.0 - Added auto-display setting to Plugin Manager Options tab.
02/09/13: 0.9 - Added support for Vinny Loader plugin
12/16/12: 0.8 - Changed directory structure for Plugin Compendium.
06/28/11: 0.7 - Added ReadMe file and released to public.

You can easily set event timers for festival events. Just set the cooldown time on your current character and the time remaining will be visible on any of your alts. There is no limit to the number of active timers and it's easy to renew any timer.

I hope this isn't considered a "necro" post, but I was searching for a timer that would allow me to, once in game, note the instant a particular festival quest becomes active, then set reminders until the end of the festival that the particular festival repeatable is active.

For instance:

In the summer, there are two "races" one at a phased location in Michel Delving and one at a phased location at Frerin's Court outside Thorin's Hall. Each runs every nine minutes. It would be nice to know when the next race starts if my hour wait is up and I'd like to catch another race.

Similarly, if I have an alt that would like to visit the dance quests, those run every....20 minutes? It would be nice to take one character around at the start of the festival and have automatic reminders accessible by all my characters when those quests become active, so I don't have to wait and can figure out if I'll miss the quest this time and can go about my questing and make sure I get back to a particular hub the next scheduled time. Doubly great would be accessing it while not logged in to see if I can log in and do the quest without having to wait a long time.

Just a thought....

Version 1.1

This is a minor update to the plugin, using the Common folder version of the Plugin Manager Options tab share with my other plugins. However, I've added a stand-alone read-only version that can be run outside of Loltro to check on pending events. Because the Lua interpreter that is built into Lotro can't be used outside the game, you will need a stand-alone Lua interpreter. I've included a link to a small one that is easy to add. There is also a ".bat" file that needs to be configured so that it can find the ET data file. Check the ReadMe file for instructions.

Exclamation Version 1.0

I've finally added support for Plugin Manager with an icon and an Options setting to select whether to automatically display the current event list when ET loads.

I've also added support for a new plugin that I wrote called "Vinny Loader" that lets you load any of my plugins with just a single click. If it is already loaded, it will just open the plugin window (or in the case of ET, display the event list).

I try it, maybe it helps.
I would contact the author of the fix for help with using his code.

Would it be possible to change the "," manually?

Edit:
As suggested in the txt from the fix I replaced "Turbine.PluginData.Save" with "VindarPatch.PatchDataSave" and "Turbine.PluginData.Load" with "VindarPatch.PatchDataLoad"

I only changed the Lua from Eventimer.

As a result I got this:
Quote:
...he Rings Online\Plugins\Vinny\EventTimer\ET_Main.lua:13: attempt to index global 'VindarPatch' (a nil value)
After that I tried out the exe in the fix, which did nothing more than I did manually - change the load and save behavior in 3 plugins, including Cooking Reference.

Got the same error.

Turbine is the one that needs to fix the problem. I read about a work-a-round once, but don't recall where.

Does not work with german Client!?
That's because of the problem of using ',' instead of '.' in decimal values when saving data. I really wish the developers would fix that.

Exclamation Version 0.8

This update only changes the file structure to make it compatible with Plugin Compendium. There is not functional change.

Warning: If you are replacing an older version of this plugin, be sure to delete the old copy so that the plugin manager will find the right version.

Here's a novel use for this plugin

Sometimes I can craft something on one of my alts but I'm not sure it if would be an improvement on what another alt has. The event description can include any text including item links, so creating a dummy event with the item link of what I'm thinking about crafting allows me to display it on my alt and compare it to what's already equipped.

Maybe you could strip some stuff from http://www.lotrointerface.com/downlo...-Calendar.html ?

Features

Great idea for a plugin.

Feature requests:
  • GUI!
  • Ability to enter a final date.
  • Repeat timers
I expect to add a window, but I haven't found a nice way to insert links other than a command line and for craft and AH timers, links are the simplest description method.

I'd like to implement dates, but as I mentioned in the docs, there isn't a date conversion function available.

There is already an easy way to repeat an item. If you have a daily event that you just completed and its first on the list, all you need to do is enter "/et 1 24"
