What am I doing wrong, I can create breadcrumbs but they never are saved, next time I login, they are gone.

Also are there other Overlays, I have Barry's only.

Re: Re: Re: Share custom annotations

Fantastic - I found the path on my original machine differed from the new one. All good! Thank you so very much. Love the product. Can't wait for all the updates for new areas!

Thanks again!
The instructions were for a Windows machine. If you do not have a Windows machine then everything will be the same except the path to the plugindata folder. Make sure you are copying to the PluginData folder, not the Plugins folder (that would be where the code goes, not saved data). The simplest way to determine the correct location would be to use MoorMap to save a custom annotation on the new system, exit the game (or just unload plugins) and then search for the file - in your case since you are apparently in Eryn Lasgalen, the file is MM_CustomAnnotations_171.plugindata

FWIW, the numeric part is the index of the map from the entry in defaults.lua in the MoorMap plugin folder - you can find the correct numeric part for any map by finding the map name (in the comment at the end of the line). The first number on the line is the index which becomes the map id.

Re: Lothlorien map

You may know this but the Lothlorien map seems a bit off. It has Gworast 12.8S, 62.9W and Talan Brethil 12.2S, 62.4W in Mirkwood on the East side of the Anduin.
Thanks for reporting that. When SSG changed the maps in the latest update they altered the dimensions and I forgot to fix Lothlorien. It will be fixed in the next update.

Yes. It's not a built in function and requires copying a few files but is not overly complicated to copy annotations to another computer (one way).

The custom annotations are stored in your Documents in the folder: "Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\PluginData\username\AllServers"
where username is your account name. If you have multiple accounts there will be multiple folders. In that folder, you will find all of the settings files that are stored for that account (as opposed to settings stored per server or per character). The MoorMap custom annotations files all start with "MM_CustomAnnotations".

Make sure the game is not running. Copy all of the files starting with "MM_CustomAnnotations" from that folder to the same folder on your new computer and restart the game client. All of your custom annotations should re-appear.

Unfortunately, keeping them in synch if you continue to use both computers is a far more complex issue and involves creating networked shared folders and symbolic links and is not something I would recommend (the process requires knowledge far greater than a simple file copy, especially if something goes awry). So, I would recommend that you retire the old computer and only use the new one or get used to copying the files back and forth if you ever make changes (the manual method, while mildly cumbersome, is far easier to perform), either over a network or just using an external drive like a usb drive.

Ver 1.47

ver 1.46 never made it out of QA testing so we are now at ver 1.47

The most significant change is the inclusion of a Roving Threats overlay that is compatible with Mathwold's RTPlugin. For those zones that have Roving Threats or Hidden Threats, there is a new Overlay that can be displayed which will show markers for the possible spawn locations. Similar to RTPlugin, you can mark the possible spawn points, but you can also indicate which specific RT is at each spawn point so if you are helping someone find a specific RT, the Overlay legend will tell you which spawn location was flagged for that threat (click the entry in the legend to activate a ping at that spawn on the map). You can also mark those points that were checked and had no threat, so you will be able to easily remember which points you have already checked. Similar to RTPlugin, you can share your spawn locations, however when sharing with a destination that is running RTPlugin, the RT name will not show (since RTPlugin does not support that) and if you receive a message from a user using RTPlugin, the spawn will be listed as "Active" instead of having a specific name, again, because RTPlugin does not support that. Chat channels UC5-8 are also available (RTPlugin only supports UC1-4) but the global channels are not supported in MoorMap, mostly to prevent spamming of global channels - Kinship, Fellowship, UC1-8 and Tells are supported. Note, when the Roving Threat or Hidden Threat overlays are active, they will automatically mask all annotations so that the spawn points will stand out more against the map background. Turning the overlay off will automatically re-enable the annotations.

Data driven overlays (such as Berry's Deed Data) have had a considerable overhaul behind the scenes to make supporting Deed overlays easier to implement and support. Part of this overhaul was included in 1.46 for the Wildwood deed overlay. I may find time in the future to add additional deed overlays if there is sufficient interest from the community.

The map dropdown list now allows the user to type a partial map name in the textbox and it will automatically scroll the first matching map name into view in the dropdown list making it MUCH easier to find most maps in the ever-growing list.

As always there have also been a number of bug fixes, mostly minor things.

I believe by "Sundering of Osgiliath" you are referring to the PvMP version of Osgiliath which iirc, indeed has that title, but it's been many, many years since I wandered over there and it was a virtual graveyard even then. Anyway, the PvMP version of Osgiliath is already in MoorMap. It can be selected under the path:
Code:
Middle Earth
   Gondor
      Eastern Gondor
         South Ithilien
            Osgiliath (PvMP)
directly under the map entry for "Osgiliath". Unfortunately, if you are in the zone and hit the player location button (or enter the "/loc" chat command), MoorMap will initially display the regular "Osgiliath" map since they share the same exact coordinates. You can easily switch to the PvMP version by dropping down the map selection box and selecting the map under "Osgiliath" which will be "Osgiliath PvMP". MoorMap will then recognize that your position is on the currently displayed map and will simply update your position on that map when you hit the player position button again (you can check your position as you wander about the zone without worrying that MoorMap will swap back to the non-PvMP version). Note, however, if you change maps to another zone and then try to bring up the Osgiliath map again, it will once more default to the non-PvMP version until you tell it that you actually want the PvMP version again.

As to special functionality, I don't recall there being any faction controllable locations, map-in locations, or strongholds so there is nothing special to show on the map.

If you meant a different zone or something else, let me know.

Of course, this highlights two things: first, I just can't help giving long-winded complicated answers to even simple questions, second, the fact that there are soooooo many maps that a filter is needed to make finding the right map easier in the list. I believe that is already on the ToDo list. If it is, I will be raising its priority, if it's not, it soon will be (it took me a couple of minutes to figure out where to find Osgiliath (PvMP) and I put it there ). Unfortunately, my dropdownlistbox class does not currently support this functionality, so, I will have to experiment with adding that ability...

Glad to hear you already resolved it at your end manually, however, it is interesting that this happened. Description.txt is not a necessary file, it is only there for my reference (I'll probably move it out of the plugin folder in the future), but there should not have been any problem, especially since it shouldn't be accessed by the client so should not have been locked due to usage. I double checked the permissions and they are the same as all of the other files and it has been included in prior versions with no problem. Perhaps something odd happened to the version on your system. If this ever happens again, you can simply manually delete the version of description.txt on your system before updating and compendium should run just fine - you may then notice that it might gripe about the next .txt file if indeed there is something odd going on with permissions on your system, perhaps an over protective anti-virus or some such.

so at least in part you're already working on it. most deeds are on the wiki just not sorted by location so each deed has to be searched by deed name separately by searching so my suggestion was to search for deed names and then write off kookrdinaty. The data are mostly there from beta, but some of what I found like this so that I could fulfill the deed are correct
