Thorog Eye Effect
 
Description
This Tool should help you to detect and cure dangerous effects faster. It is intended for situations, where you need to react on some effect very fast and ignore other effects. One example is Thorog's Eye in the instance Helegrod. Many other instance have similiar critical effects.

The effect will appear as VERY BIG icon, with potions ready to get rid of it. But for curing simple effects this is not the right tool, because it may be anoy you. So most of them you put in the ignore list. For now the plugin comes with empty configuration, but i upload my effects (see patches), and i encourage you to sent them in here.
You can share/import the configuration files with/from your friends or kinship. See Share-Instructions below.

The tool may also gives addional hints how to behave in such situations.
If a configured effect is detected on you, the window pops up and
offers you quick slots (e.g. prepared with potions), shows a count down timer.

It supports English, French and German.

Every effect detected in the game is stored in the configuration (server and character independent) as uncategorized effect. You have to decide if you move it to the ignore list or use the setup window that allows you to configure the alerts. Don't get anoyed again by light wounds.

- After a game upgrade the plugin may not start for several character classes. please report it here.

- To reconfigure your quick slots and effects you can pop up the windows at any time with a click on the Application Icon or type /carebear show, /carebear setup or by pressing the S-Button in the Alert Window.

There are other plugins, e.g. TonicBars and BuffBars, that may offer general cure detection. This plugin is made for named effects in deadly situations only, where effects can't be ignored and it justifies to pop-up a big alert. It is not a work around for laggy situations ...


HOW TO USE

1. Equip potions (best of all four types 25+) or actions in quick slot. Close window.
2. Enter a Throrog raid
3. Wait for the eye effect. If the effect alert is already configured the icon appears and is configured "Active". The window shows up.
4. Use potion or action before count down ends.
5. Close window. Continue with step 3



INSTALL

1. Read "How to use plugins" and follow the instructions
http://www.lotrointerface.com/wiki/How_to_use_plugins
German: Instead of /plugins use /zusatzmodule
2. Uncompress this archive into your Plugins folder.
3. Run Lotro. load the plugin


SHARING CONFIGURATION / IMPORT EFFECTS
- Give the the alert file located at C:\Users\User\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\PluginData\ACCOUNT\AllServers\Carebear_AEff ects.plugindata to them.
- To merge them into another alert file they should rename it first to "Carebear_UCEffects.plugindata" and replace this one in their own configuration. Known effects are removed only by doing it this way, else you may corrupt your configuration.
- If you want: Share them with the community by publishing config file as optional addon here.

Cheers,
Ooz (Vanyar)

Development History

Version 18.0
- Testet with Update 18.
- Support for low-level potions. Be aware that some potions are bugged.

Version 14.0
- Testet with Update 14.
- Updated auto-load potions to level 100.
- Added shout actions in empty slots.
- New feature: "Effect timeout reminder" for positive effects like food, xp buff, deed xp buff, hope etc.. If you choose this option for an effect, the effect alert will popup when the effect has less then 100 seconds on it, enough time for you to recast it.

Version 13.3
- Supports in-game plugin manager. Work-around: Potions are fitted when character gains full health. Remark: Only max-level potions (100) are supported.
- Better support for importing effect lists from other users. When importing as uncategorized effects from someone else (see instructions), effects already known in the active or inactive list are removed. This avoids duplicate entries.
- Versioning changed to have major number be in-line with game.


Version 3.2
- Upgraded to work with "Update 13".

Version 3.1
- New Settings Button (Top-Left) in alarm window: You can configure transprency and click-through window there. Click-through dosn't work on the big effect icon and the quickslots.

Version 3.0
- UI Revamp. The Alert Window is now smaller (name, description and S-Button removed)
- The Alert window will get transparent if an alert is active. You can't move it during this - there is title bar to drag. Close it by clicking the application symbol twice.
- If all portion slots are fitted with at least 25 potions the alert window will not appear at startup.

Version 2.8
- The Application Icon show now the number of uncategorized effects when active.
- yell action in special slot added.
- Bugfix: Internationalization has been tested and corrected. The used language does now depend on your current LOTRO client language, not the language of the operating system (this seems to be an interface bug).
- Bug Fix: Scrollbar and move buttons are now handled better.
- Debugging: With /carebare debug a Delete button appears to delete single effects completely.

Version 2.7
- Application Icon has now Animation when new effects are detected. Least for a maximum of 15 minutes and is paused while in combat.
- Bug Fix: Scrollbar now visible again. Sorry.

Version 2.6
- Application Icon added (defaults to left on bottom on screen. can be moved)
- Minor Bug Fixes.

Version 2.5
- In the Setup it is now possible to configure a Priority Threshold for
Active Effects (you must go to this list to see the widget). Active Effects
below this global priority will now be ignored.
- Other class skills added.

Version 2.4
- Slots are initialized now, with level 75 Potion if handy and some class skills. Some class skills and lower level potions are not supported yet.

Version 2.2
- French text resources added.

Version 2.1
- Priorized Effects: Effect replacement in alert window appears now only
if the priority of the later effect is higher than a current active effect
- Bugfix: Unloading the Plugin saves now (if there is anything to save).
- Bugfix: Disable Cure Slots if Cure Instruction is 'Cure Not'
- Disable Re-Selection for New Effects to make active Configuration easier
and avoid errors.

Version 2.0
- New Setup-Window allowing to track new events and move them to
active and passive list.

Version 1.4
- Some Bugfixing and Improvements
- Added more effects
- Added Support for UTF-8 conversion. effect names can be written with encoded characters like ööüßêâí...

Version 1.3
- Some Bugfixing
- Added more known effects

Version 1.2
- Bugfix: Replace event id name (english/german). french name is missing.

Version 1.1
- Support other events (edit Configuration.lua)
- 5 x 2 QuickSlots to : all 4 potion types and special actions slots (macros like yell and using special items). You may not see them if their are no corresponding events configured.
- Hint how to behave (e.g. Run, Stay)
- Show only quickslots required on behalf of event

Version 1.0
- Basic Implementation for Thorog with Count Down Timer and 2 quick slots

Ladeprobleme und autausch der Konfiguration

Das Plugin stellt Klassen-spezifische Skills zum entfernen von Effekten bereit. Leider gab es viele Änderungen, wodurch Klassen wie Runenbewahrer und Kundiger betroffen waren und das Addon nicht laden konnten.
Ich weiss leider auch nicht ob man solche Laufzeitfehler irgendwie abfangen kann. Ich habe ein Update bereitgestellt.

Vielen Dank für den Hinweis. Fehler bitte weiterhin hier melden oder auf Vanyar in game einen Brief an Ooz schicken.

Anweisungen zum Weitergeben der Konfiguration habe ich aufgenommen.

Wie es scheint treten die beschriebenen Fehler nur bei dem Kundigen und dem Runenbewahrer auf. Bei allen anderen Klassen lässt sich das Addon laden und funktioniert tadellos.

... Rings Online\Plugins\Turbine\UI\Lotro\Quickslot.lua:11: Invalid shortcut for quickslot specified.

gerade bei einem meiner Charactere aufgetaucht. Wäre mir lieber, man könnte die Quickslots deaktivieren da diese eh von anderen Addons (Buffbars/Palantir) auch angeboten werden.

Wenn ich jetzt auf das Carebear Icon Clicke kommt folgende Fehlermeldung:

... the Rings Online\Plugins\OozStuff\Carebear\Main.lua:98: attempt to index field 'qs' (a nil value)

Tolles Tool , Nur beim Einstellen ist es für Laien etwas kompliziert. Man findet da z.b. das Fenster, wo man die Buffs einstellt etwas störend. Wäre toll, wenn das über einen Button aufgerufen werden könnte.Z.B Position und Verknüpfungen definieren würde bereits erklären wofür das Fenster da ist. Zudem würde das Fenster dann nicht sofort beim Character laden jedesmal aufploppen. Desweiteren hätte ich ne Idee zu dem ganzen. Gibt es da eventuell eine Möglichkeit die bereits gesammelten Buffs/Debuffs mit dazu gehörigen Einstellungen zu extrahieren. Um Beispielsweise einmal getroffene Einstellungen, welche sich bewährt haben auch untereinander z.B. in der Sippe austauschen zu können?

Ich weis nicht ob das ein Problem ist, aber bei mir hats, nachdem ich die Option Slots sichtbar einmal abgehakt hab, die Einstellungsdatei geschrottet und das Tool lies sich dann nicht mehr laden. Erst ein entfernen der Datei im pluginsdata Ordner beseitigte den Fehler, aber damit waren alle meine bis dato getroffenen Einstellungen weg.

- "durchklickbar" ist soweit ich erkennen konnte nicht möglich.
- groß ist das Icon ja ^^
- die Bilder sind nicht mehr aktuell. Die Box erscheint beim Alarm nicht mehr ... Du musst es halt mal testen.
- Einstellbare Transparenz etc. wird es bald geben.

Ich sehe gerade du bist von vanyar, kann ich auch in deutsch schreiben .

Ich habe das noch nicht getestet, von daher wird das mit dem verschwinden schon stimmen.
Was ich mir vorstelle ist, das man sich bestimmte Debuffs als großes Icon mittem auf dem Bildschirm anzeigen lassen kann. Gerne ein wenig transparent und wichtig dieses icon sollte "durchklickbar" sein, sofern das geht ^^.

Ich habs selber noch nicht getestet, da diese Box mich abschreckt, aber kann man selber Effekte hinzufügen? So könnte man wenn man neue Encounter das erstemal bewältigt sich direkt diese Effekte zwischen den einzelnen Trys erstellen.

Tranksupport sollte garnicht dabei sein, können soviele andere Addons schon, mir reicht wenn dieses LUA Script mir ein vergrößters Symbol direkt in der Mitte des Bildschirms anzeigt wenn ich den Debuff habe. Die größe des Symbols sollte veränderbar sein, transparenz einstellbar und "durchklickbar".

Das wäre mein Traum Addon, was davon umsetzbar ist, weiß ich nicht.

thank you for feedback. I'm glad you like it

> It would be much better if there were not the annoying box.
> Just the Debuff Symbol in big,
I dislike this part, too. It is good to get feedback on this. You can expect a change in this direction very soon.

> when u use the potion or the debuff is cured
> the icon vanish.
This should already be the case!? Please report again if it dosn't work.

Hi!

The Problem you reported seems to be a problem of the enviroment not the plugin itself. I found this posting

I like your Dropdown. It is very light-weight and well described in the header. It made life much easier :-P

Hi... looks like this is turning into a promising plugin

Just downloaded this for the first time, when I tried loading it I got the following error:

...s Online\Plugins\OozStuff\Carebear\EffectDisplay.lua :6: attempt to call global 'class' (a nil value)

To fix it I had to put import "Turbine.Utils" into the main.lua file.. (encase anyone else has the same problem).

Also, I'm really chuffed to see someone using my drop down menu class, how did you find using it?

Thank you, for the first reply Carebear was just an experiment for me with LUA and the interfaces of Lotro. Of course everybody can play without such an addon I try to include some knowledge that helps casual players like me

While I personally have no need for an addon like Carebear, I appreciate the work done in what reminds me of the beginnings of raid assist addons in other games ;-)
