Description
Baruk Khazâd! Khazâd ai-mênu!

About

Baruk is a plugin for LotRO that provides additional quickslot bars for skills etc. The orientation, scale, and number of slots of bars can be configured, additionally, bars can be made collapsible in different modes.

It was designed as a minimalist no-nonsense, no-flourish plugin, both as a learning project (it was the author's first plugin, though kept unfinished for a while) and to suit the author's own needs (more room for mounts, pets, travel skills and stances without polluting the display).

Installation

Copy the "Equendil" folder from the zip file to your "My Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins" folder (if you never installed a plugin before, you might have to create that "Plugins" folder).

If you are using one or several other plugins of the author (Bootstrap, LIP), overwriting files *should* be safe. In doubt or if you encounter problems, install the latest versions of those plugins, older plugins first (by last update).

Execute "/plugins refresh" if you install the plugin for the first time while the game is running.

Execute "/plugins unload" if you were running any of the author's plugins (this will unload *all* plugins). This might not be necessary, but this is the safe way.

Usage

"/plugins load baruk" will launch Baruk.

"/baruk" or "/baruk toggle" will toggle the setup window.
"/baruk show" will show the setup window.
"/baruk hide" will hide the setup window.
"/baruk add" will create a new custom bar (which you can also do from the setup window).

Setup

The setup window will let you create, name, orientate, resize (number of slots), rescale and lock bars. You can also set their 'mode' there:
  • 'Normal': Plain bar similar to Turbine's native quickslot bars.
  • 'Collapsible': Adds a special slot (highlighted), that can be clicked to expand or collapse quickslots. You can drag & drop a skill or item to that slot to be used as an icon.
  • 'Selection': Adds a special slot (highlighted) that 'remembers' the last shortcut (skill, item, alias ...) used within the bar. Right clicking that slot will expand or collapse the bar. Left clicking that slot will activate it as normal. Using a slot within the bar will automatically collapse the bar (and clone the slot to the special slot for future use).
  • 'Mouse over'. Similar to collapsible but automatically expands/collapses on mouse-over.

Custom bars are forcibly expanded and unlocked while the setup window is open.

Bars can be repositioned as normal using "CTRL + \" (or equivalent on your setup). The mouse wheel can be used to scale bars in that mode also.

The author finds 'collapsible' bars best for skills used infrequently such as travel destinations, and 'selection' bars for mutually exclusive skills such as
stances, pets or mounts (or at least a fraction of the author's favourite mounts).

Known Issues & limitations
  • Due to several "features" in Turbine's API, moving skills on a bar in 'mouse over' mode is cumbersome. Open the setup window to keep those expanded.
  • There is currently no way to attach keybinds to custom bars due to limitations in Turbine's API.

Thanks to Egowelt for beta testing.

Reporting issues, contributing.

Bugs and other issues can be reported, or feature requests made:
  • On this thread
  • In private messages through this site
  • By contacting Equanor on the Snowbourn server, either through mail or private message if logged on..

Please note that the author intends to keep this plugin simple and will not implement conditions ("only show slot/bar X if player has effect Y"), or add preset bars (travel skills and the like) without a *very* compelling rationale.

Plans for the Future

- Nothing specific at the moment.

Change Log
v1.1 - 2011 August 8
- Added option to lock bars (slots can't be cleared or replaced through a user action).
v1.0 - Intiial release

First i have to say i really like this plugin and i use it for more then one year now with all my chars.
Never had any problems with it, but ... since yesterday i experience freezes when doing mouseover and today i cant even log in anymore with Baruk activated.
Game just get stuck in loading screen at 0% and switching to taskmanager shows me "no response". Deactivating the plugin in mainscreen helps, but i dont want to miss it tbh.
No changes done to the game nore my system recently. Whole computer is one month young and has top specs. Drivers are all up to date ...

Anybody else with problems? Help appreciated ...
Hi, I haven't noticed any odd behaviour of the plugin in Helm's Deep or recent updates to the game, so I'll suggest the brute force approach.

- If it occurs on all your characters: reinstall the plugin.

- If not, you'll need to erase the data file of the plugin, you can find it in:

My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\PluginData\<account>\<server>\<character>\E Q_QuickBars.plugindata

Please note that you will lose the configuration of Baruk on that character by doing so.

Please let me know if that helps or not.

Thanks for the (future) fix!

As for why not just use it as collapsible - I like having it as a solid bar in a group, so that a stray right-click can't accidentally close the bar. I'm a bit accident-prone when frantically healing.

First, thanks for the great plugin - this is my favorite of the bar plugins, and I've tried quite a few!

I'm having a small bug, though. I created a bar, and had it set up as a Collapsible bar. I later decided I wanted to see the entire thing, and tried to change it to a Normal bar. However, when I change it to Normal, it completely disappears. I can still see it and move it around with Control + \, but I can't see it once I turn that off.

I deleted that bar and tried to recreate the problem. If I start a bar as Collapsible or Selectable, then change it to Normal, I get this problem again. Sometimes I can still see an empty icon, sometimes I can't see anything at all. Normal bars that are created as normal bars seem to work just fine.

Any ideas what might be wrong? I know it's a small thing, but I was hoping to have a bar collapsed when soloing and then change it to 'normal' when in a fellowship. Thanks!
Thanks for your report. There have been some slight change to the lua framework since I implemented the plugin that cause occasional visibility issues of empty slots, but that was largely minor as they were forced visible when the setup window of Baruk was open. This seems a bit more serious, and I'll have a look and fix it, Baruk is due a small update.

Edit: Bug isolated and fixed, I'll update a new version Soon along with a German and French translation.

PS: Why do you not simply use a collapsible bar, close it when solo, keep it open when in a group ?

Thanks again Amethadan. As for my other plugin, it might be a while until I update this one, but I'll get to it eventually

German Translation

Size --> Größe
Mode --> Modus
Direction --> Ausrichtung
Scale --> Skalierung
New --> Neu
Remove --> Entfernen
Lock --> Sperren
Collapsible --> Klappbar

Collapsible... --> Klappbare Aktionsleisten haben ein zusätzliches Feld (hervorgehoben). Klicke auf das Feld um sie auf- bzw. zuklappen zu lassen. Eine in das zusätzliche Feld hereingezogene Fertigkeit oder Item dienen dabei als Zeichen für die Gruppe der Aktionen. Die Aktionen lassen sich dann bei aufgeklappter Leiste durch Links- oder Rechtsklick ausführen.

Selection --> Auswahl

Selection... --> Auswahl Aktionsleisten haben ein zusätzliches Feld (hervorgehoben), welches sich die letzte ausgeführte Fertigkeit merkt. Rechtsklick zum aufklappen der Leiste, Linksklick zum ausführen der angezigten Fertigkeit. Bei aufgeklappter Leiste lassen sich die Aktionen ausserhalb den Zusatzfeldes durch Links- oder Rechtsklick ausführen.

Normal --> Normal

Normal... --> Normale Aktionsleisten funktionieren genauso wie die standardmäßigen von Turbine. Sie sind nicht wie bei den anderen Modi eingeklappt.

Mouse Over --> Maus über

Mouse Over... --> Zugeklappte Aktionsleiste welche automatisch bei Mausüber aufklappt. Links- oder Rechtsklick auf eine Fertigkeit führen diese aus.

One Idea i miss on Baruk. Possibility to Fade Bars. from 0.01 through 1.00 so they stay faded as someone want. Second Idea. Possibility to make them Fade out and fade in automaticly when someone mouse over it trough the Settings.

Great, great mod!

All I miss is the possibility to make, for example, 3x3 bars.

Very user friendly and straight-forward.

There's a "bug" with Turbine's Plugin Manager that launches plugins before character data is fully available, causing items in quickslots to show empty and map skills to not show the correct icon.

Work-around is to not use Turbine's Manager, although I might be able to integrate a work-around within Baruk itself in a future version.

Sayaya: Some non english characters are not saved correctly by Turbine's plugin framework, I'll try to add a work-around for that one too.

Thumbs up Disappearing icons ...

UPDATE
-------
I found a work-around now. Loading via Bootstrap does it! Bootstrap must be loaded manually, not via Turbine's manager. Works for me now! I'm happy.


----
Baruk is exactly what I was looking for! Great plugin!

Unfortunately I can't find a work-around for the Turbine-Manager bug. I tried to load & unload via "/plugins", but my hunter's travel skills keep disappearing (while the toolbar with my crafting tools works fine).

Could it be a problem with my German version? I applied the fix for foreign clients - still, no joy.

Any ideas what else I could try? You're not working on a patch by any chance? (~hopeful)

Hi,
First I must say that I´m german. So please excuse my english.

I used baruk to create a bar for emotes.
When I create it all works fine, but after a relog
the german letters like ü,ä,ö are messed up and I can´t use the shortcuts anymore.

Is there a way to fix this?

I'm aware of issues with disappearing icons from custom bars when loaded from Turbine's plugin manager.

Hi !

First of all, please excuse the poor quality of my English : I'm a French Canadian of the Province of Quebec and I don't have many occasions to use Shakespeare's language...

I want to thank you for your addon. I discovered it yesterday and it is very useful...

Unfortunately, I have a bug with it... Every time I quit the game, all the shortcuts I placed disappear. It's like the addon didn't saved my settings.

All the bars I put are there, but without shortcut. Do you have any idea about this problem ? Maybe the bug is in front of the screen !

Thanks !
Bonjour,

Les raccourcis sont normalement sauvegardés automatiquement. J'imagine que le problème provient de l'utilisation d'une version Française du jeu, qui ne gère pas correctement l'écriture de fichiers sur les versions non Anglaises, encore que j'ai programmé Baruk de manière à ce que ça marche... en théorie.

Pourrais tu m'envoyer le contenu du fichier suivant (c'est du texte) en message privé ?

"Mes Documents\Le Seigneur des Anneaux en Ligne\Plugin Data\<nom du compte>\<nom du serveur>\<nom du perso>\EQ_QuickBars.plugindata"

Y a t'il un quelconque message d'erreur au démarrage du plugin ?
