I think the only way to stop playing is either to move or type /music. So in that sense toggle music button also acts as a stop button.

you can actually hit the ` key to stop play. but I'm not sure if there's a slash command. I couldn't find one


Currently I chose strictly to go with filenames. But yes, this is one option to tidy up a bit. Unless I try to read the song name from the abc file itself.

I thought it would just make it look neater



How do i make a shortcut to run the vb script?

sync play (already mentioned)
group start (to go with sync play)
Done

support for folders inside folders inside /music
Yes, been thinking about this too. I like to separate duettos etc in their own directories.

Quote:
sorting of songs in the list (maybe by name: example: filenames with -duet in the title would be under a duet category)
Related to the previous one, yes I'm sure there can be improvements for making managing large libraries more convenient.

removal of .abc and _ replaced by spaces in display of song names

That would all be great! Great work so far! I'm trying to think of a way to solve the vb script issue, but I'm not sure how much can be run from in-game and i don't think default lua can actually do a directory search
Yes, that is the problem. At the moment the only way to do it is to use an external application or script. I thought VBScript would be easy to validate for safety and fast to develop. Also, with a shortcut it's pretty quick to run whenever you make changes to your music directory. Making an application that runs on the background polling for new files might be bit of an overkill.

@Chiran Thank you for the help, Chiran and for the link too. I'd been trying to find that link but somehow Google failed me this once

Ah okay, I should add that step to the installation instructions. It's good to read these instructions first http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.p...Lua-UI-scripts. So you need to unzip this package (may need this to do it) to your 'Documents\The Lord Of The Rings Online\' folder.

I'm just about to make a new release of Songbook.

I had the same issue and it was the turbine plugin classes were missing and needed to be there.

@Balgosa It's good to see someone else had the same issue Sorry for being a noob at this but I also found another friend of mine with the same problem who just emailed me *laughs* Do you have any idea where I can download these Turbine plugin classes from?

some suggestions I would love to see are:
  • a stop play button
  • sync play (already mentioned)
  • group start (to go with sync play)
  • support for folders inside folders inside /music
  • sorting of songs in the list (maybe by name: example: filenames with -duet in the title would be under a duet category)
  • removal of .abc and _ replaced by spaces in display of song names

That would all be great! Great work so far! I'm trying to think of a way to solve the vb script issue, but I'm not sure how much can be run from in-game and i don't think default lua can actually do a directory search

Re: Plugins won't load (LOTROpad and Songbook)

Hm, I'm not exactly sure what the problem is. Do other plugins work, have you downloaded Turbine plugin classes? Is there an error message?

-Chiran

Thanks for the quick response, Chiran. I believe the fault is with me somehow... I get no error message at all in-game; it simply says 'Unable to load <plugin name>'. I just registered today (a friend told me of this site) so really I have not tried other plugins yet, to be honest. However I have not downloaded "Turbine plugin classes"; I have no idea in fact what they are; I simply followed the instructions of the FAQ on how to install plugins and your own instructions for your plugins.

Plugins won't load (LOTROpad and Songbook)

Hi, this plugin sounds very good although I tried this and also Lotropad and they both are unable to be loaded.

They are both recognised in-game (/plugins refresh) but won't load.

So basically I use windows 7 64-bit and the path to the plugins is

C:/<username>/My Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins

However, the game itself (LOTRO) is installed on another partition (D at the path D:/Games/LOTRO

Would this cause problems with the plugins loading? The vba script worked successfully (it found all the abc files I have, the correct number) but when I go in-game the two plugins are recognised but won't load. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Technically Windows should leave in a link that forwards any requests for something like C:\Users\%username%\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\Music, but who knows

I'll have to test the script when I get home. I'm currently running Windows 7 64bit.

Does it matter I've remapped my Documents folder to another drive? This is where all teh LOTRO stuff would live.
Oh yes, that could be a problem as I look for the documents folder under user's home directory. But obviously it's not there then. I'm not sure how to find it if it has been moved. I have to look into that. Or I just have to make it configurable then. A good find nevertheless, thanks!

Each time I run the vbs file it says that I only have 1 abc file, and I actually have about 20. It also never updates the list on the plugin in game. What might I be doing wrong?
Does this script work better for you? I updated it to support Windows XP and to be more vocal if it can't find something. I haven't updated this yet to the released version as I plan to add something else as well.

The vbs script that generates the library database doesn't support Windows XP or 2000 at the moment. I will update it.
