Fortunately, this one is also simple to fix. If you want to fix your copy before I get the next update out, just find line 607 in EquippedItemsPanel.lua and change it from:
Code:
  self.inventoryWindow.ViewPanel[equippedItemsPanel]:SetWantsUpdates(true);
to
Code:
  self:SetWantsUpdates(true);
This is already fixed in 2.11c (I wasn't going to publish another interim release before 2.12 but there were enough bugs in 2.11b to probably warrant it).
I made these changes but I"m still receiving the error?
Hi. Lets try to unravel this mystery. Did you unload and reload the plugin after making the change? If so, did you check to be sure it is exactly the same error message? After removing the reference to "inventoryWindow" at line 607 you can not be getting an error from that reference so either the change was not correctly made or it is not the same error message.

If it is the same error message and you unloaded and reloaded the plugin (or restarted the client) then the only possibility left is that the change was not made correctly. I would advise starting over. After closing the client, redownload ver 2.11b, reextract it inside the Plugins folder and then edit the EquippedItemsPanel.lua file making sure that you are changing line 607 exactly as shown in the original post (removing the ".inventoryWindow.ViewPanel[equippedItemsPanel]" part), save the file and then restart the client.

If it is a different error message, please post the exact error message.

I believe I came across other errors on the same character before that one, but I can't remember what triggered them. I'll post again when I find them.

Unfortunately, I'm also using SortBag, so that may be getting in the way. Let me know if you need me to disable all other plugins, or if that error is informative enough.

PS: Thanks for making the effort to work around the Turbine-caused unload issue! It's good to have AltInventory back.

No problem. You were just trying to help and that's the great thing about Lotrointerface, everyone is quite helpful. FWIW, to test an installation what I do is simply rename the entire Plugins folder to something like Plugins_old and then create a new Plugins folder in which I install just the plugins I'm testing and once I find the problem I remove the temporary folder, rename the old one and then implement any needed fix. I also usually back up the Plugins folder to a network drive as well, but not everyone has space to do that.

If you are having crashes on login, the first thing to do is to make sure Alt Inventory is not set to automatically load in the Plugin Manager - you can access the Plugin Manager from the character selection screen. If you client continues to crash on login, then the issue is not actually AltInventory - you might want to disable each of your autoloading plugins until the crash stops happening.

Once you can login without crashing, try using "/plugins load altinventory" from the command window. If the client crashes immediately then there is something broken in your installation and we will have to dig further.

Artisez,

Are you sure you have installed 2.11b? You might want to delete the old GaranStuff folder first to be CERTAIN you're not running the old version.

As far as I can tell, the old crash-on-logout problem is gone in 2.11b.
Actually, in the case of my plugins, you are usually safer leaving the existing files and just extracting over them. There was one exception to this, the thumbs.db file that got accidentally included in the zip files while I was temporarily publishing from a laptop when my regular dev machine died and required the users to remove the file before extracting. You also shouldn't remove the entire GaranStuff folder if you are running more than one of my plugins. You would at most want to delete the AltInventory folder inside the GaranStuff folder. Usually the simplest and safest way to update is using Lunarwater's Plugin Compendium.

As to the current round of crash reports, they seem to be occuring with people that are using more memory, other large plugins, larger texture caches, etc. so that is where I am focusing my testing efforts.

Will give it a go again. Thought I had removed it all but found another folder.

Thanks

Re: Re: Crash!

There is a known* issue with Rohan and 32-bit installations of Windows. Something Turbine has done in that region causes an almost immediate crash upon entering it, but only on 32-bit XP, Vista or 7.

When trying to debug people's problems with your plugin, make sure the 32-bit problem isn't really the issue, and is thus completely outside your control.

Once again, Garan, thanks for all your work.

* Known to us, anyway. The developers haven't acknowledged it yet, but it's been verified by many people, and can be worked around with a boot.ini modification. Unfortunately, said modification often destabilizes the computer for other applications. :-( Even with the fix, LotRO will eventually crash.

Client crashes are due to bugs in the underlying Lua implementation and its interaction with the game client. This makes tracking down the bugs and creating work arounds (we can not actually fix the bug in the client, only Turbine can do that) very difficult. I have already isolated one condition that was causing many log out crashes and implemented a work around. Unfortunately, many of the remaining crashes seem to be more of a function of the amount of memory in use and the memory leaks in the current client being compounded by the amount of memory which plugins use. The client runs fine for me with no crashes since the 2.11b update so I am having some difficulty replicating the crashes that others are reporting which is quite common with memory issues.

It would be helpful to know some more information from those reporting crashes, including operating system version, client language in use, other plugins in use (even if they are unloaded prior to the crash, they could impact memory usage if they were loaded in the same game session).

Thanks for a great plugin - just wish I could do a control-click to check out clothing items I have stored on my mule toon, just found out yesterday that it doesn't allow me to do that.
Thanks for reporting that. Definately a bug and it will be fixed in 2.11c
For now, do not use the options panel to move the icon, rather hold the Ctrl key and use the mouse to drag the icon where ever you want it on screen.
