Description
Currency Tracker is a simple plugin to help you monitor your gains and losses for each currency in-game.

To use, extract the zip file to your plugin directory (should be something like: Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins/GaluhadPlugins). You can load the plugin in-game through the plugin manager.

Currencies that have changed during the session are displayed in an over-head tracking bar, which you can resize and reposition wherever you like. The bar can be displayed with its background or without. Hovering over a currency icon will display the name of the currency in a tooltip, and right-clicking an icon will give you the option to disable tracking of that currency.

In the settings window you will have a breakdown of each currency known to your characters, listing the quantity at the start of the session, the current quantity, variance, and an option to track the currency in the tracking bar (giving you the option to ignore certain currencies if you wish).
Here you will also find the coin breakdown for your session, and the total coin amongst all the characters in your account (note: plugin needs to run on each character for this to work accurately).

When starting up Currency Tracker, you will find a progress bar counting down with a locked icon. Plugins load into the game before the wallet does, so to prevent the plugin fully loading before the wallet, this delay was implemented. However you can bypass the delay as soon as your client has finished loading by clicking on the progress bar. The time on the delay is set to two minutes, but you can make this shorter or longer depending on how you usually find loading times.

Commands:
/currency - shows/hides the tracking bar
/ctsettings - shows/hides the settings window

Plugin has future support for french, german and russian through the file strings.lua - if anyone is able to provide translations for these I would be most appreciative. Thank you.

If you have any feedback, bugs, or suggestions then please leave a comment below.

Hello again!

Quick question. Is there anything I can do, so the plugin runs properly on german clients? I tried to translate most of it, but it still has errors and does not save things properly after logout.

Yes, with every character.
If I load CT the first time, I only get this error:

...Data/***/[DE] Morthond/AllCharacters/CurrencyTracker_Items.plugindata:14: ']' expected near ','

I'm not sure why but I get these error-messages when the plugin is loaded:

[04/06 10:04:43 PM] Ladefehler gespeicherter Gegenstšnde (Loading error saved items)

Is this a known Issue?

I'm using the german client, and my custom strings.lua with the updated german translation.
I also have only a few currencies tracked and therefore the account tracking bug.
Have you always had these errors? I think I know what the problem most likely is.

Ok, thanks. Here is an german translation of the Strings.lua in exchange:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9e...it?usp=sharing

The only thing that I couldn't change was the "c" for copper, that you see in the main bar and in the settings window. (It is "K" for Kupfer in german.)
You can make it multilanguage if you add small icons instead of "g" "s" & "c".
Thank you for the translation Will add it to the next update. Thanks also for pointing out the g/s/c issue, must have slipped past that when I was checking all the strings over. Will make a fix for that too

Great plugin! I wonder if it is possible to move the bar to another position?
Drag and Drop didn't work.
It is possible. You have to click and hold slightly to the left/right (if you enable the background it's easier - basically wherever the end of the bar is).

Thanks for that, I will look into it today and post a patch for it. Money is the only thing that you can't disable, but seems that there's a way of doing it accidentally.

I think i finally found the problem. When i looked into the config for all of my characters in c:\***\[EN] Withywindle\AllCharacters\CurrencyTracker_Items.pl ugindata
i found the following string of code:
["MONEY"] =
{
["CHARACTERS"] =
{
["Manweldui"] =
{
["DISPLAY"] = false,
["QTY"] = 5948821.000000
},
["Korothir"] =
{
["DISPLAY"] = false,
["QTY"] = 5002601.000000
},
["Korowen"] =
{
["DISPLAY"] = false,
["QTY"] = 6173833.000000
},
["Koroeth"] =
{
["DISPLAY"] = false,
["QTY"] = 149694723.000000
},
["Ulviel"] =
{
["DISPLAY"] = true,
["QTY"] = 4970059.000000
}
}
},

Now i changed all of those to true and my character are tracking the money they earn. So that seems to work. However, i have no idea how these settings got messed up in the first place. The only thing i can think of is that if i unchecked all currency and selected only some to keep track of it disabled the money tracking. But theres no checkbox for tracking money as far as i know.

After i setup the plugin on all five of my characters i would say its obout 75% of time i dont get notification. I should note that its only the money i dont see. Stuff like skirmish marks and lets say Westemnet Iron coins appear normally.
As for the plugins im using:
BuffBars
GrimsClock
HugeBag
LegendaryItemPlanner
Mouse Cursor highliter
Palantir 2
PvMP
Recipe Tracker
Songbook
TonicBars
To my knowledge, none of those plugins use the same money changed event, so at least there should be no clashes causing this problem. If you open the /ctsettings does it show the variance there? If it is then it's most likely something with the code, if not then the only thing that I can think of is that the event just isn't firing when it should.

Ok, it seems that i have first bug for you. Money i get from vendors and mobs are not allways tracked. Sometimes it pops in like when i complete a quest for example but sometimes it does not show at all.
How often does this happen? The update is linked to the event that gets fired by the game when your money changes, which should happen every time. If the event fires then the plugin should update itself. The only time it won't show something, is if the variance is equal to zero - in which case there is no point. For example, if you bought something off the AH for 1g it would show -1g, but then if you sold something else for 1g then the balance would be zero and the plugin will remove the label from the tracker.

Could you tell please tell me any other plugins you have running alongside this. And if you experience it again, any more specific details you may remember. I've used this plugin everyday since coding it, and I've not found it to miss any currency updates yet.

Thanks

p.s. Thank you for the suggestions. I'm currently working on Tulkas v.2 which is taking all my spare time, but I will keep these in mind for a future update.

So after full day of testing i can say that this is one of those really usefull plugins. For me atleast.
I have not fount any bugs but i would ask if its possible to consider some features.
+ Compendium compatibility
+ The posibility to see selected currency i have on me (or account) alongside with the currency i earn
+ Opening the settings window directly form the currency bar
+ Account wide settings

Keep up the good work!
