Hi!

This looks like an awesome plugin! But I want to know how updated it is and if you still update it

A Number of Thoughts

Greetings:
Firstly, I wanted to say that hands-down this is the most useful plugin currently available for anyone organized. I just wanted to drop a few random thoughts here that may or may not have already been mentioned.
  • Could you hook into the chat:received event, check against ChatType 'Quest', and compare it to a dictionary of known quest chats in order to automatically check off some of the quests when completed?

  • Could you add a check for crafting recipes soas to be able to mark off the ones you have learned and know the ones you do not yet have?

  • You might want to make an object-like approach to comments so each comment is an entry, has an ID, and can be modified or deleted, this way it is easier to merge or overwrite program comments without touching user comments; otherwise you could separate program comments into their own section under the description tab or something so the comments text is strictly user free-text.

  • I've noticed that the entries listed when you use the filters are usually not complete. If you're using external data to know which items fall under a filter, then there isn't much that can be done; but if you are doing this by hand, you may consider setting up a ticket-like website where end-users can submit bugs like this so you are aware of them and can work through the tickets.

  • It would be great if you could either add a tab to the in-game window or an external application that would read your database files and allow multi-character comparisons and viewing to see which of your characters have what completed. You may even be able to work with Whiteberry and use his well-designed 'Berry's Completionist Tracker' OpenOffice layout.

Quest maps and NPC coordinates in the map have all been broken as well since release of Isengard expansion. I have tried to contact Turbine regarding these, and for months there has been no action taken. They also have changed the names of quests and deeds slightly with each expansion. Because of these changes it has made my ability to update Compendium data somewhat difficult to say the least. I've focused on other programming endeavours in hope they will correct the said mistakes.

That said there are things I can do to get the data updated, it just requires time, and more effort on my part, which have been at a minimum lately. I want to rework how I collect data, and reduce my reliance on lorebook. lotro-wiki.com has given me permission to use their data. Do get this to that stage, I have to rewrite all the code I use to harvest, and normalize data to accommodate the different sources.
Thanks very much for explaining, I really wish turbine would get their acts together it always feels like everything they do is half baked.

Thanks you so much for this plugin
I have a question tho.How is it working?i mean the core of its utility
You add these items?or you make it check the core data of the client?
I mean i saw a halberd First age lvl55 which shape and lvl i never saw in game
never!I mean it was a texture that was ever used
Compendium refers to real in game items. If it can pull a tooltip for the item, it is pulling it from the game itself. With each game update, they might "remove" items from game, inwhich the tooltip will stop working. This is just a guess, but I think it likely there are many items that they planned to release, and go to far as to add it to game files, but stopped short of providing a way to receive the loot.

I finished the select / unselect all feature tonight. I'm going to see if there isn't anything else I can fit into a release this week before submitting a new version.

At any rate.. wanted to keep you apprised of my progress.

Sorry. This shouldn't be too difficult, and I will try to add this in next release. I should have added this a while ago, but have gotten destracted. I've been tag teaming features amongst my various projects and realizing there is not enough time in day for me to do all I would like.

I have a lot of updated deed info too, that just needs to be finalized. The problem I am having with the deed information is finding a way to prevent "comments" from becoming duplicated when I update deeds that have previously been imported. I have been trying to rely on matching on comment text, but that is insufficient as sometimes there can by slight changed to a comment where people have edited one. Anyways.. I'm rambling.
I appreciate the effort. Please remember to have fun with the game though. After all it is the reason for all this in the first place. I am always amazed at how much modders do for people. I like the plugin and my wife who is new to LOTRO really appreciates it very much. She offered to bake a scratch double fudge choclate sheet cake for you until I explained you can't send it by email .

This is a feature request and I respect the fact your time is very valuable. But could you add something to select and mark as complete all filtered quests/deeds being displayed. I feel it would be far easier for high level players to uncheck quests/deeds that are incomplete rather than going through 4500 some odd quests/deeds one by one and marking them.

Also is there a way to filter checked and uncheked quests/deeds.
Good idea.. I'll look at adding that.
