About

LOTRO Plugin Compendium (LPC) is a utility application to assist in installing and updating lotro LUA plugins. It attempts to take some of the leg work away from user having to manually download, create folders, and unzip download.

This is a platform independent version made available by request of the Mac and Linux crowd. Currently it has no installer, so while you could use it for windows, I would recommend you use the windows specific version http://www.lotrointerface.com/downloads/info663-LOTROPluginCompendium.html

Disclaimer
This application is an attempt to automate a manual process and help make things easier for LOTRO users. That said, if it does not work right, please report it below. I take no responsibility of it does not work on your PC or messes things up. I would, however, like to know about any problems you encounter so future versions can be fixed.

Known Issues
  • Please configure the Download Path on configuration panel for mac. It looks like mac might change the temp folder location. Since your settings are persisted and reloaded on startup, this is a bad thing if it goes away. I'd recommend setting to /tmp
  • Lack of Installer
  • in plugin description xml feed shows escaped characters.
  • Turbine Lotro Client seems to change the install location for Plugins. This can be configured by pointing the Install Path setting (on Configuration Tab) to something like
    ~/Library/Application Support/com.turbine.lotroclient/Plugins

Requirements
Java JRE/JDK 6+

Mac does not come with java by default. Please download http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...s-2133155.html

I uploaded a new version for Java 11. I cannot test this on Mac, so if someone would be so kind as to do so.

If you are using Java 8, just download the older 1.4 version of the client.

(edit: looks like its awaiting approval. if it doesn't have java11 in the filename, it hasn't been approved yet)

"Problem while retrieving plugin listing"

Getting an error message that says:

"Implementation of JAXB-API has not been found on module path or classpath."

I'm using this on Linux Mint 19.3 if that helps. Thanks for any help/suggestions!

Advice for Java 11

Any advice/steps for Java 11? For example, JAXB has been removed from the stock JDK/JRE distributions.

Thanks!

The reason i ask, is because there is "Outdated LotRO Interfaces" category here, but there are some plugins there that are working perfectly fine, and also some that have not been updated for a while or not working, are not there.

It would be nice to be able to filter only 'working' plugins, but of course that would require community to flag them. Preferably dynamically.

There are also different levels of outdated. Some plugins are working completely fine, but have not been updated with the latest update data, some will not even load, some are pointless because of game changes, ...

how do you determine which plugins are outdated, or what outdated means?
On a basic level, I like the idea of just adding additional ways a user can filter the UI to more easily find what they wish to install.

I agree that "outdated" might mean different things. I think the most helpful for users would be if LPC could idenify which ones no longer function upon installation.

I am unsure whether that is currently documented or flagged effectively on lotrointerface. This would involve the community identifying which addons work or don't work. For example we might, in the same manner LPC uses a feed to manage the plugin list, another feed could be used to track the list of non-working addons. Another is we could solicit lotrointerface to add that kind of feature / classification for admins to flag.

Hey lunarwtr,

Is there any possibility to have a checkbox that allows hiding outdated plugins?

Cool app btw!
Sounds like a great enhancement!

Re: Re: Not retrieving plugin listing null

The problem is being caused by redirection of the plugin feed.

For now, please go to the "Configuration" tab, and change the "Plugin Feed Url"

from having http:// to https://

Then the problem should go away.
