This was developed as a response to a request on the LotRO forums, see https://www.lotro.com/forums/showthr...ring&p=8059679
for the original thread.
This is a plugin for characters like Captains that now have to manually turn on Motivating Speech after every login (or defeat) and other classes like Hunters that have similar issues with Find the Path.
A simple reminder plugin that displays a reminder when the user logs in and optionally after defeat as well as when the user starts the log out countdown timer. Note, the logout message can ONLY be displayed when the user starts the countdown timer, if the system logs the user out, no user action occurs so the reminder will not be displayed. Likewise, if the user performs any of the immediate logouts, such as the Exit Game option from the system menu, the plugin will not be given a chance to display its message before all plugins are unloaded.
To dismiss the login/logout message, simply hit the Esc key. You do not have to dismiss the message when logging out unless you want to override the timer to perform some other action (which is why the reminder was shown). If not dismissed, the message will simply go away when the timer reaches 0 and all plugins are unloaded.
The message will be displayed in the center of the screen. When logging in, you can also specify a skill/item/emote quickslot to click on. When logging out, the message will appear in front of the logout timer but you will still be able to click on the cancel button or hit the Esc key to cancel the timer.
Set the plugin to load for whichever characters you want it loaded for in the Plugin Manager.
There is now a setup/options window for configuring the reminders.
Use "/logremind setup" to display the setup window. The fields should be self explanatory. Note, the captions in French and German may need some tweaking, so if anyone wants to suggest better translations, feel free to comment below. To set a skill/item/emote, just drag a skill to the quickslot in the settings window - click the red x next to the quickslot to clear the quickslot. To change the message font/size, click the text icon for a selection list of available fonts. The Character Mode check box will set this reminder configuration to only be used on the current character - leave this unchecked if you want to use the configuration for all characters on your account (except those that have a Character mode configuration). The On Defeat check box will enable the login message and skill after defeats, which is quite useful for reminders like the Motivating Speech toggle that has to be turned on after each defeat.
Tiny update to make log remind disappear after the quickslot is clicked (I got tired of hitting Esc to dismiss it)
Added option window - users can now set text, skill, color, etc. via graphical interface
using the option window players can now specify ANY type of shortcut for the quickslot, not just skills, i.e. items, alias, etc. just by dragging one to the options window
using the option window players can now specify font (click the text icon or the font name in the options window to display the list of fonts)
Bug fix for loading error reported by homeopatix
Added log-in skill quickslot. Users can show a skill quickslot immediately below the log-in message to make running that skill simpler.
Added on defeat display. Users can optionally show the login message and skill after defeat (useful since toggle skills like Motivating Speech get turned off on defeat)
Added status display. Users can now show the current settings.
