Description
About

BuffMonitor is a plugin to monitor any effects. All you need is at least a unique part of the effects name.


Getting started

Install the plugin into your Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins folder.

In game load the plugin by typing /plugins load buffmonitor. To get some help type /help buffmonitor. Right click on the empty effect window to show the context menu and add your first effect.


Usage
  • /bm options shows the options dialog within the Turbine Plugin Manager
  • Right click on icons or effects to show the context menus
  • Ctrl+\ to move or alter orientation of the icons or effect windows
  • Ctrl+\ and then hold down Shift to snap windows to each others
  • Ctrl+\ and then hold down Alt to snap windows to an invisible grid of 16x16 pixel (in case of resizing the grid is 4x2)
  • Ctrl+\ to resize the window with the resize handle
  • In the german client please use Strg+# instead of Ctrl+\

Search Strings

You can use a simple, case sensitive text as search string (except the magic characters ^$()%.[]*+-?) but you may also want to check for patterns. i.e.
  • Escape magic characters with %, i.e. %x (where x is any non-alphanumeric character) represents the character x.
  • Find any character (.), e.g. Poi.on matches Poison
  • Find multiple characters ([...]), e.g. any of the numbers 1, 2, 3 are found by [123].
  • For more information see the Lua documentation, Chapter 5.4.1.

I did not have any problem with either effect:





Make sure that the capitalization is correct.

Are you using the "BufffMonitor with Quickslots" patch?

You must prefix special characters with %:
Inspirieren %(Kraft%)
Inspirieren %(Moral%)
However, please note:
BuffMonitor only monitors the effects on your character, not your target. (If you want to monitor the effects on your target, you can try DebuffVitals, although I don't think it has a German translation yet).

Re: Re: Error Messages

Strange. Are the file permissions on all of those files set such that they are readable by the game client?

Well, so I'm not sure what did it. I downloaded BuffMonitor again and put it in. I no longer have the other plugin file, it just says BuffMonitor, then I went through and changed permissions to everyone, not just me. It seems to be working. But, it just says BuffMonitor in the plugin list.

I guess I'll let you know, thanks for the reply!

Hi, I think that I have a pretty unique situation, but I suspect it's just changing a directory in some file or something like that. I run LOTRO in Crossover on a Mac with BigSur. It actually runs perfectly, better than it did on Windows, which doesn't surprise me really. My other primary plugin, Combat Analysis works perfectly. BuffMonitor loaded one time, just once. Ever since, it won't load. I strongly suspect that it has to do with path, but I don't know where to change/check that. These are the errors that I get:

...ings Online\Plugins\PTweety\BuffMonitor\__init__.lua:1: Unable to resolve package "PTweety.BuffMonitor.Locale".

...he Rings Online\Plugins\PTweety\BuffMonitor\Main.lua:3: Failed to import package "PTweety.BuffMonitor"

Help please, really need my buffmonitor back!

For the life of me I can't figure out how to get the Quickslots to work. I see no where to put a skill or any option.... I have BM loaded and BMwQS installed but not loaded per instructions. Thought I've even tried loading both to no avail.


NVM, I knew as soon as I posted I'd figure it out, lol. I must have Installed BMwQS first back when I originally started setting up.

I quick uninstall and reinstall in the correct order fixed everything.

Does anyone know if there is a way of passing on ownership of an addon?
Should just be a matter of sending a request to Cairenn or another admin.

Are you the author of this plugin, though? The current owner seems to be "ptweety".

I installed BuffMonitor and ajBuffMonitor with Quickslots
I use Plugin Compendium to install and update plugins and he writes to me that it is a new update and wants to install version 1.0.0, so it does not detect the BuffMonitor with Quickslots patch plugin, is there anything I can do about it?

This plugin hasn't been updated in a long time, but IMO it's still indispensable for raiders.

I have made a patch (linked above) which adds a quickslot next to each effect. You can drag skills/items there so you don't have to remember which skill/item corresponds to each effect.
