I am encountering the same issue on version 2.0.3 with the lua error message, even after following the steps to delete the plugin data, restarting, etc. Tried deleting and re-downloading the folder as well. Still not bringing up the options.

Is there a stable version you can recommend I can roll back to until this is fixed?

Thanks!

Yes, you have to do it for each character. And you cannot do it while that character is logged in. You must log out, delete the file, then log back in (you don't have to actually exit the client).

I've been having an issue with BuffBars now for a while. I've re-installed it several times but what I'm getting is when I try to open up the Options menu. I get a basic Options list with nothing in it and within the "middle" pane it says: "There are no options available for this plugin." and I get the following errors in my chat windows.

...ugins\PengorosPlugins\BuffBars\EffectBarSetting s.lua:158: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)

...ugins\PengorosPlugins\BuffBars\EffectBarSetting s.lua:158: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)

I am unable to motify my Heal/Power Pots, etc.

What am I missing? Please help as I love this Plugin.

See RJferret's post below, this fixed that problem for me

''PS: For those not seeing Options (IE, upgrading from version 1), you want to remove the BuffBarsSettings.plugindata file from each character's PluginData folder. (And then set things up how you want them.) The PluginData folder is one up from the Plugin folder, then you go into plugindata/account_name/server_name/each_character_name and yank out the old settings file.''

Am I to do this with every character PluginDate file? or just the one I'm currently trying to use. I deleted this file for my character I'm actively using now but still I have the same issue. This did not fix anything. I will certainly be happy to delete the PluginData Settings file for each player but if this is the issue I think deleting it for the character I'm activly using should be efficient enough, but still BuffBars is broken for me.

Arrgh!
PLEASE let me manage my BuffBars options without having to go through LOTRO's plugin manager (L-PM)!

My LOTRO client crashes 1-2 times a play session (about 3 hours), possibly due to BuffBar's reliance on the L-PM.

My setup:
I autolaunch BB with the Bootstrap plugin.
To manage my BB settings, I use the Bootstrap menu feature where, with two mouse clicks, the command "/buffbars options" is entered.
When doing this, the L-PM window launches with the BB Options tab selected.
With one to two crashes a session, all but one crash was related to managing my BB options through the L-PM window.
The outlier was also related to plugin management.

Based on what I've read while troubleshooting, my crashes may be due to a bug in the current L-PM, a "black screen crash" requiring a hard-switch poweroff and reboot.
See some discussion about this by other folks at LOTRO Forums.
Note: At the forum link above, Evendale, developer of the CombatAnalysis plugin that BuffBars uses for some features, confirms and comments on this bug.

Before RoR and BB v2.0, I never had a LOTRO client crash.

Note: I've seen some comments that using DX9 instead of DX10/11 might solve the crashes and will try it.
But still, the L-PM bugginess is very disappointing coming as it does from the game's own developers.
Further, to me it appears BuffBars requirement to use L-PM creates a situation where bugs in a critical feature are due to software the BuffBars developer cannot fix (ie the reported crashes).

Commentary:
In my opinion, based on previous and current experience, LOTRO's Plugin Manager is unnecessary, buggy, and poorly supported.

In comparison, the plugins I use from LOTROInterface, including BuffBars, have been excellent and developers like Pengoros very responsive.

I really hope Pengoros is not for some reason required to use L-PM to manage BB options because then a critical function of BB relies on buggy 3rd party software that Pengoros has no way to fix.

It's possible, but tricky, you need to know the name of the effect of the buff (like "Guardian's Ward" or cappy's "Defending" or burg's "Aiming").

Now create your new bar/slider/whatever and in Effect Triggers, remove anything listed there, then add a new one. In the Template dropdown, select Custom. In the Match Criteria Search, enter a word from the buff.

I've done his for all my characters, and it makes it a lot easier to keep things up optimally (not wastefully hitting another skill too soon, or leaving yourself without a benefit).
Thanks RJFerret, it worked fine!

I think the key item to remove is the "Undefined Buff" item. This is the one which allows the window to show *any* buff and forces you to have to blacklist them all. Am I right?

@Pengoros:
Regarding the locale: It might be best for you not to take into account the user's locale when deciding what symbols to use for separator and decimal point. You decide what those should be and stick to it. That way the config files will work on any locale, if transferred, or if dual-booting with different locales.

The last update fixed most of my problems - the blacklist feature seems to be working properly for the windows now. Yay!

Are the blacklist/trigger features supposed to be there for the sliders as well? When I right-click on the slider icons all I see is Options.

2.0.3 still crashing to desktop when swapping characters or logging out for me. Am I missing something? (Clean install after removing all plugin files/data/settings and re-installing all the new updated versions of each. Everything else seems to be working fine.)

Edit* Going into the plugin manager and selecting (simply highlighting it) a plugin with no options available, does solve the crash on log out issue for me, any way around this problem besides having to remember to do this?

Thanks for the super-quick fixes Peng! :-) Not only do the pot triggers now work correctly, but it no longer crashes on exit!

2.0.3 will not display options.

I put 2.0.3 on top of the existing version that I was using. Which unfortunately is of a version I cannot now remember or ascertain. Now I cannot bring up options. I get a plugin manager options panel instead and it show no options available for BuffBars. This happens if I right click the bar and select options, or if I type the command /buffbars options in the chat window.

I get an error, ...ugins\PengorosPlugins\BuffBars\EffectBarSetting s.lua:158: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)" usually twice when I try to access options.

Damn, right now I'm sleeping. I just woke up and decided to look on this page. You are too fast for me ;-). In the next days I'll look after the CD feature, for which I need to translqte all the pots etc., right? I'll continue to sleep right now. See you...
