Description
Introduction

BuffMonitor is similar to BuffBars; it shows a progress bar for each buff on your character that you are interested in. It is simpler and less configurable than BuffBars, but it has one advantage:

When a buff expires, it doesn't disappear from BuffMonitor. So it helps you remember which buffs you need to use in the future.

This patch adds a useful feature to BuffMonitor: It adds a quickslot to each buff bar. You can drag an item or skill there, so you don't have to remember which skill/item corresponds to each buff.

For example, I can't ever remember which foods are "cooked", "trail", or "fortifying", so I put the relevant food item in the quickslot. When the buff expires, I don't have to figure out which food I need; I just click on the quickslot next to the buff timer.

Installation and Startup

To install:
  • First, you need to install BuffMonitor. This patch cannot stand alone without that plugin. To install it, you can use Plugin Compendium, or just unzip the archive and drag the "PTweety" folder into your "Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins" folder. (If you have not previously installed any plugins, you will have to first create the Plugins folder.)
  • Next, download this patch and unzip it. It also contains a "PTweety" folder, which you should drag into the same place as before. You will be prompted to overwrite files; answer yes.
To load the plugin, use the game's built-in Plugin Manager. This can be found in the "^" menu, at the bottom of the screen. Click the icon, then choose "System" and then "Plugin Manager".

When the Plugin Manager opens, find BuffMonitor in the list on the left side. Verify that the version is 1.1.x. (If it is 1.0.0, then you have not properly installed the patch.) Click "Load" to load the plugin. If you would like the plugin to load automatically each time you login, choose your character's name in the "Automatically Load For" pulldown menu.

Configuration Notes

To create a window, open the Plugin Manager, select BuffMonitor on the left, and click the "Options" tab at the top.

To add effects to the window, right-click the window to first add a bar, then add an effect to it.

When entering effect names, remember:
  • The effect names are case-sensitive.
  • You can use a partial effect name, such as "Battle Lore" instead of "Minas Ithil Battle Lore", so you won't have to change it when the next kind of "Battle Lore" is added to the game.
  • If the effect name contains a hyphen, you need to replace it with "%-". For example, "Honey-cake" becomes "Honey%-cake", and "Light-oil" becomes "Light%-oil".
  • In general you can use any valid Lua pattern-matching string, but the above are the only important things to know for the average user.
For each BuffMonitor window, you configure whether it shows only in combat, only out of combat, or always. This is useful to separate pre-combat buffs (e.g. food) from the buffs that you need to monitor while in combat.

There is also a "Lock quickslots" option, so that after you are finished configuring the quickslots the way you want them, you won't accidentally modify them.

See the BuffMonitor home page for more details.

Known Issues

Loading this plugin with different client languages (English, German, French) is likely to corrupt the settings file. So don't do that.

So, now I tried another keyboard, but same problem.
What I found out though is, typing in chat when an effect expire makes my pointer to disappear in the chat and making a jump, getting the map or which ever key I am hitting.

I made a video to demonstrate. Take a look: Video Youtube
Another thing which I just tested.
If turning quickslots off, it doesn't happen.

Ok thanks. Trying another keyboard now, maybe it's the keyboard.
And yes, it is like the curser "jumps" out of the chat, if you know what I mean.
Also causing me to jump when using "space" lol.
Let us see what happens with another keyboard. And thanks for your time.

Hmm. I'm not able to reproduce this.

Please try it with only this plugin running, to verify that this plugin is the source of the problem. If so, then please give me an exact sequence of things to do demonstrate the problem.

What you are describing is what happens when you start typing a chat message, but don't currently have the chat window selected (i.e. there is no blinking cursor in the chat window). It is possible for a plugin to "steal" the focus, though.

Another question.
Not sure if it has anything to do with this plugin, but it is as everytime i make changes, adding new bar/effect or edditing.
After if I am typing in chat I get pop ups on screen.
Fx if I type a word containing the letter M, the map pops up etc.
What do you think, did you experience this?

should be "Light%-oil" I think, because the other version doesn't work.

Nice plugin, I like it
Thank you, I have corrected it.
