About

LOTRO Plugin Compendium (LPC) is a utility application to assist in installing and updating lotro LUA plugins. It attempts to take some of the leg work away from user having to manually download, create folders, and unzip download.

This is a platform independent version made available by request of the Mac and Linux crowd. Currently it has no installer, so while you could use it for windows, I would recommend you use the windows specific version http://www.lotrointerface.com/downloads/info663-LOTROPluginCompendium.html

Disclaimer
This application is an attempt to automate a manual process and help make things easier for LOTRO users. That said, if it does not work right, please report it below. I take no responsibility of it does not work on your PC or messes things up. I would, however, like to know about any problems you encounter so future versions can be fixed.

Known Issues
  • Please configure the Download Path on configuration panel for mac. It looks like mac might change the temp folder location. Since your settings are persisted and reloaded on startup, this is a bad thing if it goes away. I'd recommend setting to /tmp
  • Changing the install path by hand vs with browse button appears to cause many folder to get created on Mac. (Reported on 10.8)
  • Lack of Installer
  • in plugin description xml feed shows escaped characters.
  • Turbine Lotro Client seems to change the install location for Plugins. This can be configured by pointing the Install Path setting (on Configuration Tab) to something like
    ~/Library/Application Support/com.turbine.lotroclient/Plugins

Requirements
Java JRE/JDK 6+

Change Log

1.1
  • fix mac bug where quitting application doesn't save settings
  • changed default download location for mac to /tmp
  • packaged java app as a mac application
  • made new higher rez icon for mac installer

1.0 Initial Release
Woohoo!

LPC and newer Macs.

I'm running on a 27 inch 2011 iMac - OSX - 10.9.4

$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_13"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_13-b20)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode)

Note that Oracle identifies this as Java Version 7 Update 60.

And have not had any problems.

Note that Apple no longer supports or supplies Java.
You have to install java from java.com

Click "Do I have Java" Click "Do I have Java" again
See the Mac FAQ for details.

The mac I used to test this was very old. If I can get my hands on a newer one I'll take a look at it. Is there any insight you can give me into what isn't working? Does it say anything in particular?

Thanks for reporting.

'No Protocol'

Downloaded, unzipped, and double clicked. Got dialog box with error message:

Problem while retrieving plugin listing
no protocol:

When I click 'OK' the Compendium loads, but everything is blank. Any thoughts?

A new bug?

An interesting happening.

I updated CombatAnalysis earlier this evening -- apparently successfully.

I wasn't paying attention to what I was doing and did it again... got a weird error and the entry disappeared from the "installed Plugins" list. (but the plugin itself was still in the Plugins folder.)

Scan doesn't pick it up again.

But when I go to add new plugins and check Conbat analysis, then add; It is reinstalled and re-appeares in the installed list.

The problem is I have no idea what that first error was and subsequent updates of Combat Analysis all worked normally.

Really weird.

In the folder I keep the down loads in, I find two Combat analysis files:

1356139710-CombatAnalysisZip.zip time stamp matches my first upgrade attempt.
and
CombatAnalysisZip.zip with a created stamp of my second attempt but a modified time stamp of 10 minutes later. (When I did the update a third time.)

Thanks Magill. Gotta love a company that if you don't go through them and their signing process, will tell people that your app is corrupt and needs trashed. Brilliant.

Got plugins to work manually.

Responding to Magill:

Wow, I thank you for taking the time to respond with a lot of information. And I finally found the ~/Library/Application Support/com.turbine.lotroclient/ folder.

I am certainly not the most computer savvy, but once i found the directory, I was able through trial and error to figure out where to put a plugin manually that would actually show up in the Lotro "Manage Plugins" section and actually work.
I had to create a Plugins folder in the above stated directory (so i created ~/Library/Application Support/com.turbine.lotroclient/Plugins), place the unzipped plugin in it and then it worked! I placed the directory you mentioned in the compendium and it worked as well.

Thank you,

Also thank you for your response in http://www.lotrointerface.com/forums...ead.php?t=1951

Re: MAC Client: Problems in loading plugins with the compendium.

Hello,

I hope i am posting this in the right forum. I am currently using the "native" MAC OS X Client (beta) download from Turbine for playing LotRo (which i dowloaded last week and works great). My Computer is running OS X 10.8.2 (Mountain Lion).

I would love to run some plugins and was thrilled to see that you have a Mac version of your LotroInterface Compendium, i downloaded it, installed it no problem. I used your default settings for the "Configuration" Tab where it set the
-Plugin Install Path- to /Users/(me)/Plugins
and it set the
-Plugin Downloads- to /tmp

I used the interface and "added" two plugins. It said everything installed fine, I saw the plugin folders appear where they should be in the /Users/(me)/Plugins but could not find the /tmp folder. I received no errors up to this point.

I then opened up Lotro and got to the Character screen, clicked on "managed plugins" and none of the plugins appear. I logged into a character, and in the chat interface typed /plugins load MinstrelBuffs (just one of the plugins i wanted to use) and it said "Unable to load MinstrelBuffs" I tried it on the other plugin and got the same "unable" message.

At this point I am stuck as to what i need to do to make this work.
1) Did i miss a step somewhere in the middle? If so could you tell me what to do?
2) Is there a different manual way to do it? In mountain lion I installed the Mac client to the "Applications" folder, but when i click on the "Lord of the Rings Online" i cannot see or have access to the individual sub-files through the "Finder" interface on OS X 10.8.2.

Thank you for your time.
I have not tried the mac client yet.. but according to the post below by magill, the mac version of the client stores it's plugin in a different location than the Crossover/Wine route did in past. You might try manually setting the path on the configuration tab to the new folder location and seeing if that works.

I am w/o a mac at present that is running anything beyond snow leapard. If anyone can verify or provide assistance in mean time, I would appreciate it.

Sorry you experiencing problems with LPC. Thank you for taking the time to report it.

Java SE6 Runtime not in Mountain Lion

I'm not certain if this was a recent change by Apple or has been true for some time.

I recently had my iMac in for an Apple Disk recall (bad batch of Seagate Drives apparently), and got it back with a "virgin" Mountain Lion install. (10.6.8).

It did NOT have the Java runtime installed. Takes 2 minutes to download and install it, but it wasn't there.

I have a vague remembrance that Apple pulled Java 6 in one of their recent updates, but they might have just upgraded to Java 7.

BTW Sapience announced that Beta for Update 9 should begin next week.

Re: Update needed for new Native Mac Client

Quote:
The current iteration of the Native Mac Client (released 1 November) stores the Plugins (and other stuff) in "Apple's place." ....

~/Library/Application Suport/com.turbine.lotroclient/

see: http://lotro-wiki.com/index.php/Mac_Client for current information.

That location is "the Apple Way" for such things... except that ~/Library is now "hidden" (since Lion), which makes it less than accessible.

So, will Turbine change it over to ~/Documents to be consistent with the Windows Version... who knows?
thanks for the heads up. I can always try to make the app check to see if that folder exists first before defaulting to the current location.
