Questions and source file check
Hello there, as i'm new to this site i just wanted to ask some things before uploading.
Here is the thing, i created a tool i named Orchestrator which goal is to allow a single player to self deploy and play an orchestra.
This tool dont use memory tricks, and communicate with the game thanks to LUA api (to retreive which character have instrument equipped) and sending virtual keystrokes to game window (to send /play sync commands), it does NOT directly read/edit in game memory and in no way i designed it to make it easy for player to have an in game advantage for any other thing than playing music as a band.
I also dont plan do put a copyright on it, and will make it open source, it is mostly coded in Java and C++.
More precisely here what it features :
- can launch and log multiples LOTRO clients
- can send /music /play sync /follow /raid invite to running LOTR clients on a single computer
- can send a command in game that launchs a custom plugin to retreive the instrument currently equipped
- can cross data from which instruments are needed for each track of an an .abc file and
who have which instruments equipped in the party to create and send to LOTR clients the right /play sync command
- support french, german and english clients instruments localization
Here what i can do :
for clients launchs :
for music examples :
so, now here my questions :
- in which category i should upload ? (i believe RolePlay & Music)
- to work it needs a quick patch on songbook, so that it can write the name of targeted music to file system when a user click on sync button, can i upload a patched version of songbook within the archive ? or do i ask/wait for chiran to do it ?
Precisely it needs this in \The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins\ChiranBB\SongbookBB\SongbookWindow. lua:1722 :
Thank you ;)
I had to create a new post to upload sources as attachments, sorry for the double post ! (and if you feel this .zip really bad, scan it ;) )
I would like to upload at least for anniversary (20th i think).
If you have any questions/want to say something in particular, or troubles understanding it, i'll be there to answer.
by the way, is it fair if i upload sources with bins ?
this is more like "use it at your own risks, but you can understand what it does if you put some time in it"
sorry for that many questions
In the absence of an official reply from the admins of this site, I will do my best:
The most important thing you're going to need, by far, is a very clear and complete explanation of the steps necessary to install and use your application. There is never going to be very many people who want to do it (I'd say less than 100), and they may not be the most technically savvy people, so you need to make it as easy for them as possible. Good luck.

Since i'm not a german speaker, it would be really great if someone could translate this into Deutsch lang :o
i forgot to ask something again, upload page contains following :
Do not include additional zip/rar files inside the main zip/rar file.
Sadly, java executables packages are .jar files, which are actually zips containings all java classes, is this a problem ?
I can't answer the question about .jar files. I would guess the reason for the prohibition of nested .zip files is that it interferes with automatic virus scanning. In that respect, .jar files are not a threat, so I don't think it would be a problem. If you need an official answer before uploading, send a PM to an admin, since they apparently aren't reading this.
I sent a PM to pull theme here, but i wont have much choices but to upload if admins dont show up to answer.
i'll wait until 16/04/2017.
The .jar file should not be a problem as Lunarwater's Linux/Mac version of Plugin Compendium contains a couple of .jar files (one for Linux, one for Mac).
I'm very sorry it took so long to get back to you. Some reason the site didn't alert me that I had a private message waiting (I need to look into that).
Edit: my email issue should be fixed so I should be alerted of new private messages. :)
Hi Dolby !
Thank you for enabling my upload.
I'll create a support thread if someone needs help with its use.
