anyway to run the hta file on mac?

i got the plugin running and everything is great, except i can't build the library. I've tried changing the .hta to .html, which did open some script/webpage on safari that had a "generate library" button in it - but when i click it, nothing happens. it just won't build the library no matter how many times i click on it, or if i run LOTRo before/after clicking.

And yet another bugfix to WANSongBookFiller: Until version 1.3, you couldn't browse through folders where no ABC files were located at all. From version 1.4 on, all "in-between" folders down to a sub-sub-sub...folder are now included so that you can browse to a song called "sub1/sub2/sub3/sub4/mysong.abc" even if sub1/2/3 are completely empty. You can download v1.4 as usual from http://lotro.hanft.de/wansongbookfiller/

Thanks to "The Just Abby's" for the bug report

WANSongBookFiller v1.3 released

Hi,

as you may have noticed there were some daylight saving time issues with my "WAN Songbook Filler" (everything was re-read at the start and the end of daylight saving time). Version 1.2 should have avoided this by using UTC time zone generally, but it doesn't seem to be that easy... Linux servers store file modification time together with time zones, WebDAV servers deliver GMT or local time (together with time zone information or not), WebDAV clients (and Windows itself) add or subtract their local time zone to or from the delivered time... and all this even depends on DST active (or not) by the time of uploading and/or downloading! There are just too many pieces of software involved in this process so that you can get unpredictable results anyway.

So I gave up finding a solution for managing the correct time zone by all means, but installed a checkbox in the program which treats an exact 1-hour offset as "same time". Granted, this may lead to miss a changed file if it was modified exactly one hour (to the second!) after the last write, but I think this won't happen very often and if you're suspicious about it, just un-check the new "Ignore" checkbox.

(If you just use a local drive instead of a WebDAV server, the impact of re-reading everything might not be annoying twice a year anyway.)

You can download the new version 1.3 as always from http://lotro.hanft.de/wansongbookfiller/

PS: There's still that "European Bug" that music instrument slots are stored as "[1,000000] = 0,000000" in the SongbookSettings.plugindata file when leaving the game. In order to reload Songbook, you have to take Notepad and "search and replace" all ",0000" by ".0000"...

Yes, it's a bit of a shame. The script itself is fairly easy to port to Java I believe. Problem is how the directories and such resources are handled in a Mac environment of Lotro. And unfortunately I cannot test those out myself for the moment.

Ah OSX again. Unfortunately I do not have a Mac to make this happen. You could try running the .exe version or this tool under Wine. Obviously the .hta will not work. There was also a user working on a AppleScript version here in LotroI, but I don't think he ever released it.

Ok looks like there's an error in the settings file. You could try to delete SongbookSettings.plugindata file that is mentioned in the error message. There's no crucial information there, just plugin window position and such. But delete the file while the plugin is not running (or even game). Then try again starting the plugin.

Since the file is account-specific, it may work on the other character on the other account.

-Chiran
Yes, that did it. Songbook is working perfectly fine again. Thank you, sir!

This is what comes in the chat when I try loading it. I also use the lyrical plugin and the hugebag plugin, and they work just fine.

Re: Mac OS functionality

I can only speak for myself in that question.
The plugin is Master Chirans awesome work. I just made some slight modifications to fit my needs in the plugin code.
Aftre all, LUA and me are not best friend, sotospeak...

Since I do not have done any programming on the Mac OS so far,
a Mac version will not happen in the near future.
(which means at least not in the next few weeks )
However, I am eager to try something on Mac OS, but it will take some time.

Maybe You can bring in a bit detail what exactly is the issue on the Mac.
The plugin is done in LUA which is running within Lotro so that should work.
I guess the problem is the creation of the database file, Macs are a bit nervous in terms of accessing the filesystem. If you can toss this job to a native Mac program it should work.

cheers

Will there be a modification so this works smoothly on the Mac OS? I'd love to use the plug-in but it has too many issues and work-a-rounds to work on the Mac. Thanks for the consideration and the handwork you put into the development of this plug-in!!
