Description
FreeCode is a plugin which displays the weekly free coupon code in the chat window.

How to Use:

Type /fc in the chat window

How to install:

Unzip the folder in to your plugins folder.

This plugin also contains a python file, which is responsible for identifying the free code. I considered compiling it, but decided against that for now, in order for people to be able to check the source code for themselves before running it, so you will also need to make sure you have the python interpreter installed from the official website here.

If you want the free code to automatically update, you will also have to run 0SETUP.pyw. This will create a new desktop shortcut for LOTRO, which will also run the python file.

This setup file can also be found here, if you have your own external scripts that you want to run when LOTRO starts.

Release Notes

Uhh, this is a nice plugin. Really nice!
Usually I'm starting LotRO through a shortcut on my desktop. So no problem with your plugin.

But one question remains. I added -nosplash -skiprawdownload to the shortcut. Is there a way to include these in there? I am not at all good with batch, so I'm thought I might ask

I used the non-Steam Lotro launcher and it does work. I wished it worked with Steam version of the Lotro launcher.
Glad it worked. I don't use the steam launcher for LoTRO and I wasn't aware of many people who did, I can look in to finding a way for it to work however. Thanks for the feedback

I am using Windows 10.

I did a search for LOTROplus and it did show up but I could not locate it or it tried to open it not sure what happened.

Why wont it work with the Steam version of Lotro?

I did download python and ran the osetup file. I did not get any shortcut desktop.

When I run the osetup this is what I get:

Python 3.8.0 (tags/v3.8.0:fa919fd, Oct 14 2019, 19:21:23) [MSC v.1916 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information.
>>>
= RESTART: C:\Users\Owner\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins\FreeCode\0SETUP.pyw
C:\Users\Owner\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins\FreeCode
C:\Users\Owner\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins
>>>

I normally use go through Steam to launch Lotro but I do have both and have been known to switch between the two.

I have never used python so I am not sure if I am doing anything incorrectly.
Unfortunately it wont work when you start with steam. Ah sorry missed your first part, what OS are you using?

Edit: One thing you could try is looking inside your plugins folder and seeing if a file called LOTROPlus has been created?

I like the idea of this plugin. Having said that I have tried to figure out how to get it to work however I do not program and what is required for me to do. I have never done before.

Any help that you can give would be great.
The code isn't compiled, so you would first need to download python.
You can get it from here

The way that it works is by running a script that checks every Thursday if there is a new lotro beacon and updates the free code.

In order for it to run every time you open lotro, you will need to run the 0SETUP file with the project. What this will do is create a desktop shortcut (called LOTROPlus) for you to use instead of the normal desktop shortcut which runs the program to check as lotro starts up.

You then need to load the ingame plugin as usual.


Is there a particular part of the process you are having trouble with, so I can help better?
