Today has been a good day ... NT just updated TonicBars (129 alpha) I'm bugging him to include the .pluincompendium xml file and to fix the directory structure!
1- I would recommend creating:
Documents/The Lord of the Rings Onlin/LPC
as a locaiton to unzip the file, etc.
The following is not really necessary, but can be done:
2- Under mac the "right click" option is "Make Alias" ---
... generates: "plugincompendium-1.0-full.jar alias" (Spaces are valid in OSX filename)
3- alias can be dragged to the desktop, it will form wherever the parent is located.
4- double click on the "alias" (or whatever the name it is changed to) and program will launch.
Alternative to making an alias: simply double click on the .jar file -- program will launch.
(answer "downloaded from internet" message)
A "java" Icon will form in the "dock" - right click on that icon and select "Options" - "Keep in dock"
I'll have to see if I can find out how to replace the Java applet icon with yours ... it used to be an easy drag and drop action, but I don't know how right now.
So far, on the first pass, everything in my Plugins folder is visible.
1- Did MountCarousel (both versions) become managed? It has a .plugin file, but so does TonicBars, which shows up as "(Unmanaged)" in the listing. Both .plugin xml files contain the same information
2- What's "Yellow" mean? -- Unmanaged are all "grey"
3- Configuration tab:
Install path ok. : /Users/<userid>/Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins
Plugin Downloads... no idea what that implies -- pat is probably "linux" -- /var/folders/tg....
Should make it same as Plugin install path: /Users/<userid>/Downloads/<download-file-name>
click on "Browse" goes off to never-never-land ... i.e. someplace users should not play (I believe it exists on my system because I was playing with MONO, but "Normal" users are not likely to "ever go there." Which means, unless you delete stuff downloaded, it will never go away. (Interestingly, you and mono are not the only ones leaving stuff there! Some "cruft" from back in September 2010.... but I also play with Macports and other "non-Apple" stuff
