Hoping someone might be able ot help me, i've reinstalled Lotro on a new machine and installed Songbook. I'm having issues getting songbook to build the library of songs as i'm not using the C drive for the files (it's in D) and when i use the HTA application and enter the file path, after it errors, nothing seems to happen. Any advice?
Hi,

It should be able to sniff your My Documents folder. It shouldn't matter that it's on a different drive. However, it might be that some song causes it to crash? Could you try running the script with for example just one song in it and troubleshoot it that way?

You can also try songbook filler app WANSongBookFiller.exe.

Br,

Chiran

Here's an updated version of the song discover script for Linux / MacOS.

To run it:
  1. Download the script from here.
  2. Save the file into your Plugins/Chiran folder (the same folder where Songbook.hta resides).
  3. You can try double-clicking the script, and it may work depending on your system settings.
  4. If not, then open a command-line terminal and run the following command:
    • MacOS:
      perl "/Users/username/Library/Application Support/com.turbine.lotroclient/Plugins/Chiran/discover_songs.pl"
    • Linux:
      perl "/home/username/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins/Chiran/discover_songs.pl"

I had a similar problem, the script for building the library seemed to not work for me, it looked to me like it cant change from the default folder. I have game installed on ssd and but home folder and thus plugin data on hdd. If i remember correctly, i solved my problem by hardcoding my own path into the library builder.

Looks like there is a problem with the script. Please run the script again and copy+paste the output into a PM and send it to me. Also, send me the SongbookData.plugindata file (you can either upload it to my Google Drive, or use another sharing service and send me the link).

In the meantime, you can try adding "}" to the end of the file until the error message changes or goes away.

What do you mean by "nothing happened"? Did you get an error message?

Edit: Since you're using Linux, the location of your plugins will be different than on a Mac installation, so you'll have to modify the command in step 3. Probably this should work:
perl "~/Documents/The Lord of The Rings Online/Plugins/Chiran/discover_songs.pl"
If not, let me know the error message.

Emberleaf,

Try the Perl script I posted below.

Or, if you're not comfortable doing that, try the Mac version I linked below.

Hey all,

I'm a long-time fan of this plugin, but have recently switched to using Linux from Windows and can't seem to get neither the songbook.hta nor the songbookfiller.exe files to populate my music library. I simply click on them and nothing happens. In-game, Songbook opens up and does everything it should - I just can't populate my music library with songs.

I'm using Linux Mint 18.3 and have been able to get everything else having to do with LOTRO to work perfectly. Is there anyone out there who can lend some assistance? It would be greatly appreciated!

Re: At a loss

Quote:
I just transcribed a song in musescore. Saved it as a midi file. Went in to Maestro and turned it into an .abc file. It plays in Maestro and abcplayer. In game using the plugin, I get the message Couldn't find tune index in song file. First time in 6 years I have seen this error message - ideas?
There's probably some parameter missing from abc notation. Perhaps it is the X parameter which identifies instrument track index. So if there are multiple instruments in the same file, then each has its own index. And even if there's only one, it should be still present.

For example:
X:1

Just a guess though.

If you post the .abc file here, I'm sure someone will figure it out in short order.
