Description
About

Basically this is another warden trainer to help you to remember all those gambits. This is something that Zantuxx created for himself to help him to remember available gambits and effects. What heals, what increases threat etc.

Gambit lists are filtered on based effects to make it easier to find the needed info.

Big thanks goes to:
Zantuxx for starting Gambit Helper. Sadly enough he had to quit playing LotRo Luckily he allowed anyone to continue development of Gambit Helper.
MrJackdaw for creating WardenIndicator. Plugin that inspired me to create this plugin.
DeusDictum for creating dragbar, its simply perfect.

Features
  • Visibility: by default only visible in combat, but out-of-combat visibility is possible.
  • Transparent: this plugin is 100% transparent to mouse, so it won't interfere with normal actions in game.
  • Gambits: only gambits that you can use are shown by default, but its possible to view all gambits too.
  • Movable: both lists can be moved to different locations and locations are stored.
  • Image based: creating/using custom skins is possible.
  • Highlight: Highlight selected gambits (for example required for deeds)
  • Gambits are both color & number coded.

Installation
  1. This plugin requires DeusDictums Dragbar and the Turbine Utilities to be installed so install it if you don't already have it.
  2. 2. Extract the zip file to your plugin folder.
  3. 3. Use command /gh2 options to configure.

Usage

Start the plugin with command /plugins load GambitHelper2 or use one of the plugin managers.

Gambit Helper shell commands:

/gh2 showall Shows all gambits.
/gh2 rebuild Rebuilds available gambits. (use this after gaining a level)
/gh2 reset Resets default positions.
/gh2 ooc Toggle out of combat visibility.
/gh2 options Display Options window.
/gh2 big Sets big icons for OSD.
/gh2 small Sets small icons for OSD.
/gh2 vitals Enable/Disable vitals.

Change log

  • Added Resounding Challenge gambit (lvl 80)
  • Added Call to Battle gambit (lvl 83)
KNOWN ISSUE!
The LotRo language finally has an addition for the stance the warden is in (about time too). Right now I have all gambits set to Determination stance and in time I will add the other stances as well.

Changes to 0.7.1
  • Added sizing toggle for gambit icons in OSD
  • - /gh2 small - uses small icons for OSD
  • - /gh2 big - uses big icons for OSD
  • - Added OSD size toggle option in /gh2 options
  • Desolation is no morale drain gambit
  • The Dark Before Dawn displayed wrong gambit info when selected
  • Redone all resource textures to save HDD (slack)space

Changes to 0.7.0
  • Surety of Death selected icon missing
  • Added support file for Plugin Compendium - waiting for it's author to update Plugin Compendium config so that GH2 is fully supported

Changes in version 0.6.3
  • Textual changes ('Gambit Helper' -> 'Gambit Helper 2')
  • Added /gh2 as text-line command next to /gh
  • Added Plugin Manager icon
  • Added auto-version detection (GetVersion) because I always forget to update version in code
  • Impressive Flourish gambit is at level 8 (not 9)
  • Added 'selected icons' for Aggression, Deflection & Shield Tactics
  • Corrected OSD typo in Deflection :s
*IMPORTANT* I've made changes to the naming of a lot of the Resources. Please be adviced to delete the ..\GambitHelper2\Resources directory before installing the 0.6.3 version

Changes in version 0.6.2
  • Corrected OSD description for Boar's Rush and The Darkness before Dawn gambits.

Changes in version 0.6.1
  • Surety of Death added to Thread Increase list

Changes in version 0.6.0:
  • Updated the gambit-list to that of LotRo Update 6 - Added 3 new gambits and changed levels of existing ones
  • Made the GH UI larger so that all skills will fit in it after Update 6 revision
  • Included all Gambits now under their gambit type as listed in the official LotRo wiki. This means some gambits are shown more than once since they have more purposes
  • Changed name to Gambit Helper 2 to make a new start with Zanttux' great tool
  • Versions will recorded as 0.Update.patch-version

Original Gambit Helper by Zantuxx can be found here.

NOTES:
1. I'm an experienced programmer in several 3rd generation languages. I have never programmed OOP (which the LUA script is), but will give it a try to update the actual code as well. For now I'll be maintaining the gambit list but will update the code later on when I'll get the hang of the LUA script as well.
2. I'm not able to test all gambits yet since I've returned after a long 'away' period. My warden is 'only' 47 right now...

Hi all,
thanks for you for this plugin, really helpful.
To answer to the last post, since the helm's deep, there are many slight changes that a HL may not see directly. Minimum level for many gambits had changed, so that why you may not have all your gambits at the good level. In addition, many effects of gambits have changed and descriptions may be wrong. I work on my own to have an up to date plugin and i understand why the author don't really want to make theses changes right now :-).
I think will keep my work for me for the moment (testing) and if Demigoth is interrested, I will send him for the community.
I hope it was clear and helpful,

Kick

GH2 doesn't show all the gambits I've learned

Hi there,


first...thank you for this nice addon.
Unfortunately GH2 doesn't show all gambits I've learned so far. Even if I hit rebuild nothing changes in the list of shown gambits.

What can I do?

The only plugins I have installed are HugeBag, BuffBars and TitanBar. Are there any known issues with them?

And anyone can tell me why the gambits are checkable?

I could be wrong, but from the looks of it Helm's Deep didn't add any gambits, right? If that's true, then there's no direct need to update Gambit Helper 2, other than that some skills have slight shifts in their use.

As said before, I'm too busy with other stuff, so I will not update GH2, unless it's REALLY needed ;-)

Helm's Deep is here and I'm picking up LotRo again for a bit. This means I will update Gambit Helper 2 as well and make it compatible with the new expansion.

But...

I will only check if it's actually working and will not update/expand functionality as I said I would do back in the past. Reason is that I am currently occupied with 'other programming duties' and I don't have too much time to develop Gambit Helper 2 right now.

Expect the Helm's Deep update around this weekend!

Re: Gambit descriptions

I am not very savvy, but I just can not get this plug in to load correctly. 7.1 worked fine for me, but 8.0 I am getting this error:

Unable to resolve package "GambitHelper2.Main"

Can someone give me some pointers on how to fix this please?

Gambit Helper 2 window position

Okay, not to worry, figured out how to move the gambit windows. Seems I had some corruption from all of the other plugins I added. Cleared all of those issues up and was finally able to readjust the Gambit locations on my screen. However, I did have to unload the game and reboot the computer.

The gambit lists starts at the bottom of the gambit window and adds them upwards. The default location is at the bottom of the game window and since I am playing in a window, it was hard to target or see the gambit title location with all of the clutter and quickslots. All is good now, will test the gambit plugin at a later date. Looking forward to trying out this nifty plugin.

[previous post]
I have a level 56 Warden with a long list of gambits, so many so, that the Gambit lists scroll off the bottom of the game window. The default location is too low. I play at 1920x1080 on a 32in screen.

After reading through the comments, did see there was an option to move both windows, but it is at the very bottom of the Gambit lists. In my case, not even accessible at this point. The reset option, lowered those windows even further. I went through all of the options, but none allowed me access to the very bottom of either gambit window. Perhaps you may want to add the re-positioning to the top of both those gambit windows, therefore, allowing any player of any level to adjust where they are placed.

For now it will be unloaded as I am unable to used it or even test it out.

One other comment, I could not get it to show up in the plugins manager list as being available. However, I was able to access it after I installed it from the Plugin Compendium. Now I am stuck from using it because I cannot reposition either gambit window, which I described above.

If you could address that issue, that would be great and thank you for your time and cooperation.

It doesn't load, either via the / command or via Bootstrap.

Im really sad to read this, but of course when it's time to go, it just is. If you can upload the work you have done already (and the templates xD), I can try to learn Lua and finish the programming part. I have no experience at all with images so that is going to be a challenge, but I can try. No promises.

Thanks a lot

Ending support for GH2

I'm kinda done playing LotRo. Though I have a lifetime-subscription, the game is just not appealing for me anymore. Anyone who wants to continue development, please go do so to keep this plugin alive. I'll package the new resources I made coming weekend and upload them as update for the one who'd like to continue the development.

Re: display height

Quote:
I play on a 13" laptop and I love Gambit Helper but I have to modify GambitData.lua file in order to move the display up on the screen and not have it underneath other screen elements.

I set a variable called _boxHeight and used it at 364 (the value in the zip file is 764).

I can send you the change I made if you are interested.
In the upcoming version with stance detection, I've removed all double gambits in the list. I will also make the UI windows smaller as well. I will even see if I can match the height to the number of gambits listed (I know it's possible but I want it done easy )

BTW, what resolution are you playing on?

Good news about the stance detection! Can't wait to see further developments of this plugin.
Made a start with the stances today with Excell on the laptop open to record the effects. Done all fist gambits and it's a lot of work.

Looking at things I either have to redo the whole UI-thing because the stances make a lot of difference in their use. Determination is threat aimed, Recklessness is aimed on DPS with no threat effects at all, and Assailment seems to do the same damage as no stance, but adds a 10m area fellowship buff to up damage kinds.

All very interesting, but as stated above, with the addition of stances, I have no idea how to make them work on the UI. Any thoughts..?

[EDIT]

I have all info on gambits and their stances. Sadly, I don't have much time to work on the plugin this week and I hope to be able to get some work done next week.
