Hi Zyriel,

This is certainly a very interesting idea. And at least in theory, many parts of it are possible. You also very nicely lay out possible problems. However, I think the showstopper is that the plugin can only write to PluginData folder in a certain format. Since the music system reads songs from Music directory and in abc format, this means that the songs would not be accessible to it.

Thanks for looking into it! I didn't think it would work, but I had to ask

Which windows version are you using? I have to admit that the .hta file is a bit antiquated and some security setting or antivirus program could block it. Although, at least on my Windows 10 machine with an antivirus program it does run ok. You could also try the .exe version, which is now in a new location here (I also updated it to the plugin description). Or you could try Songbook filler by Arnhor.

Hi.

Running Windows 7 64bit. I did try the new one you linked in your updates and description, but it didn't do anything. I updated after my original .hta didn't work, and then when the new one didn't either, I was worried it would lose all the other songs. It didn't, but still gave the same error and didn't add the new ones.

I did try the Wan file, but although it ran, it didn't seem to change anything.

Using the new exe file did work though and my new songs have been added to my list (well one has, so I'm assuming they all did).

Thank you!

Not working in french (and maybe in german)

Hello,

Currently, Songbook isn't working in french for /readycheck and /playstart commands due to accents (/voirprêt, /débutmusique).

If you convert the file SongbookLang.lua from UTF-8 (no BOM) to ANSI, it works

PS: I guess that the /readycheck command doesn't work as well in German because /bereitschaftspr\195\188fung is utf-8 too. The \195\188 notation works for other texts in french but not in the commands, maybe LOTRO made a change that doesn't allow UTF-8 for commands... I think, that if you replace \195\188 with ü it will works (in ANSI coding)

If you remove all custom commands in settings, the plugin doesn't load anymore

...gs Online\Plugins\Chiran\Songbook\SongbookWindow.lua: 1549: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)

I have made an updated version of the discover_songs.pl script for Linux / MacOS.

To run it:
  1. The modified script is here.
  2. Save the file into your Plugins/Chiran folder (the same folder where Songbook.hta resides).
  3. You can try double-clicking the script, and it may work depending on your system settings.
  4. If not, then open a command-line terminal and run the following command:
    • MacOS:
      perl "/Users/username/Library/Application Support/com.turbine.lotroclient/Plugins/Chiran/discover_songs.pl"
    • Linux:
      perl "/home/username/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins/Chiran/discover_songs.pl"

I have worked on it to harden the script against anomalies that I have seen:
  1. Directories with spaces in the name (i.e. The Lord of the Rings Online)
  2. Byte-order-mark characters
  3. Missing X: records
  4. x: instead of X: records
  5. Multiple T: records
  6. Files that are CR-delimited
  7. Installing Songbook.Plugindata files

I helped the original author add some of these improvements, but after a number of changes, he said I should just post the improved script myself.

The original author's script is here.

-Mod Possibility-

I was wondering if a countdown timer option is possible. Next to Band - Song title to show how much time is left for the .abc I find myself unsure sometimes if a song has ended, or if it is just a break.

Another thought I just had. Can there be an option for playlists? Play an entire folder of songs maybe back to back.

Thanks again for this glorious mod. I log in sometimes just to mess with music. It's a great addition to LOTRO.
