Thanks for reporting this. There is a bug in the TMSearch.lua file. I will have a fix posted later today.

EDIT: The bug is squished, the file is uploaded and should be available shortly.

I'll give you a hand and translate the items that google had transtated wrong/not accurate.
Code:
Resource[4][5]="Гараном загружено";
Resource[4][6]="Гараном выгружено";
Resource[4][9]="Лево";
Resource[4][10]="верх";
Resource[4][13]="Эриадор";
Resource[4][14]="Рованион";
Resource[4][15]="Загружать минимизированным";
Resource[4][17]="использовать маленький значок";
Resource[4][24]="Гондор";
Thanks for the translations. The next version of TerrainMap will include a Russian UI option that will hopefully work correctly Unfortuntately, the map tiles will still be limited by the client and will probably lag behind the English version a bit.

I suspect you are playing on the Russian server with the RU client. The Russian translation was never completed which left a number of bugs. You can edit main.lua and change line 111 from:
language=4
to:
language=1

That will force the plugin to use the English names but at least it will load.

EDIT:
If anyone would provide me with Russian translations for the English section of the strings.lua file I would be happy to at least translate the UI. Unfortunately, the search feature would still be based on English naming.
My rather clumsy Google translations are:
Code:
Resource[1]={};
Resource[1][1]="English";
Resource[1][2]="TerrainMap";
Resource[1][3]="Options";
Resource[1][4]="Language";
Resource[1][5]=" by Garan loaded";
Resource[1][6]=" by Garan unloaded";
Resource[1][7]="Save";
Resource[1][8]="Cancel";
Resource[1][9]="Left";
Resource[1][10]="Top";
Resource[1][11]="Width";
Resource[1][12]="Height";
Resource[1][13]="Eriador";
Resource[1][14]="Rhovanion";
Resource[1][15]="Load Minimised";
Resource[1][16]="Show Icon";
Resource[1][17]="Use Mini Icon";
Resource[1][18]="Map";
Resource[1][19]="Icon";
Resource[1][20]="N";
Resource[1][21]="S";
Resource[1][22]="E";
Resource[1][23]="W";
Resource[1][24]="Gondor";
translated to
Code:
Resource[4]={};
Resource[4][1]="русский";
Resource[4][2]="карта местности";
Resource[4][3]="Опции";
Resource[4][4]="Язык";
Resource[4][5]=" по Гаран загружалась";
Resource[4][6]=" по Гаран выгружен";
Resource[4][7]="Сохранить";
Resource[4][8]="Отменить";
Resource[4][9]="Левый";
Resource[4][10]="вершина";
Resource[4][11]="ширина";
Resource[4][12]="высота";
Resource[4][13]="Eriador";
Resource[4][14]="Rhovanion";
Resource[4][15]="Нагрузка к минимуму";
Resource[4][16]="Показать значок";
Resource[4][17]="маленькая иконка";
Resource[4][18]="карта";
Resource[4][19]="значок";
Resource[4][20]="C";
Resource[4][21]="Ю";
Resource[4][22]="B";
Resource[4][23]="З";
Resource[4][24]="Gondor";
Note I didn't even attempt translations for the regions Eriador, Rhovanion and Gondor and the map direction abbreviations for North, South, East and West (N,S,E,W) are probably incorrect. I don't have an RU installation currently and don't expect to have time to install one in the near future so I don't have any way to properly test the RU client.

Last I knew, another fairly significant concern is that the RU client runs a version or so behind the EN/DE/FR clients so a great many of the map assets will not be available to the latest terrain map client until the RU client catches up. A couple of map tiles have even swapped images/locations and will look a bit weird if viewed with an out of synch client.

Windows 8 Issues

Just got a new computer, and it's running Windows 8. I've decided to give the new OS a chance before I repave the thing and revert to Win7. So far, I have been unable to get this plugin to work. At first, LOTRO couldn't see the plugin at all. I finally found that the folder unzips as "GaranStuff", which seemed to be confusing the issue. I changed the name to "TerrainMap" and it allowed LOTRO to see both plugins (TerrainMap and TMSearch) on a refresh, but an attempt to load TerrainMap gets an error that says there's a problem with the file "TerrainMap.main". I don't know what this means, nor do I know if the problem is Windows 8 or the recent update. I'm assuming it's Windows 8.

Thought you'd want to know. Cheers.

Update: Well, that was stupid. By default, the 'Lord of the Rings Online' folder inside 'Documents' had no permissions assigned to it. Once I assigned myself permissions, everything worked without a hitch. I didn't need to change a thing.

The old LotRO web site had an interactive map which was actually a Google map (hosted by Google). When Turbine ceased publishing that map I asked permission to host one using the art assets from the game (the tiles used for Terrain Map) since the assets are 200x200 pixels which is the native size used by the Google map API. It would have been fairly easy to implement but unfortunately Turbine declined to allow me to use their assets (they are copyrighted with all rights reserved)
Hopefully they just didn't want their content piped through the Google Maps API. Otherwise I may be seeing a C&D coming my way.

It is a work in progress, so forgive me any shortcomings. I will continue to improve it as time allows. Constructive criticism is quite welcome.

Thanks for the compliment. The code is actually pretty straightforward and easy to view since plugins use non-compiled Lua code - that is, the code is compiled by the run-time each time it is loaded so the source files are in plain text. The actual map resources are 200x200 pixel images that are used by the game client to display the in-game compass. Basically, all this plugin does is create a grid of resource IDs (I have a separate utility plugin that I use to determine which resource image is mapped to which grid coordinates, kind of like a giant puzzle) which are displayed via a viewport so that not all images are in memory at once. As the user scrolls, the grid elements are moved within the viewport until the edge is reached at which point each grid element is loaded with the next column or row, moved back to their start position and the new column or row is loaded at the border and the scrolling starts all over again. In terms of map software it's pretty primitive. It's actually very similar to the second example I published for the ScrollBar code sample post, "Slip Sliding Away", of the Writing LotRO Lua Plugins for Noobs thread:

A user upgrading from a previous version wouldn't see the problem, but a new user like myself will encounter it.

EDIT:

Also, I'd like to suggest a small usability change to the search form. Adding the following at line 26 of Search.lua will prevent confusing entry errors caused by hitting the enter key in the text input field:

searchText:SetMultiline(false)
Thanks for the feedback.

The missing TMSearch.plugin is indeed a bug. I will get a new upload ASAP, hopefully later today.

Thanks for the comment on the Enter key. I already have an item on my todo list to run the search on Enter since I have caught myself trying to hit Enter as well.

EDIT:
The Enter key issue and a couple of other search related bugs are now fixed.
