JDrakul, I have replicated the problem and fixed it in v1.35. Please let me know if you have further problems.

Hi, well the situation is like that, I have some reminders with specific times, for example: in Crickhollow server Monday 17:00 hours, Tuesday 17:00 with the same character. Also have automatic reminders for recipes with cooldowns.

When I enter in another server the reminder time is "reset" and appears like "now", and when you see the time of the reminder is the actual time in server, this happens with all reminders if they have a specifi time, with reminder for next login doesn't happen.

Yesterday I delete all reminder of recipes cooldowns and apparetly the reminders with specific time works fine, but later I discovery that again they were reseted.

Today I adjusted the times again, login an logout several times and no one of the reminders was reseted, but I suspect that the reset may be relationated with be login in a diferent day, like if when the day ends the clock were reseted.

I hope this info can be of help.

See later.

EDIT: Effectevely the time in the reminders were reset today.

I believe that it is probably not working correctly. I will investigate further and try to isolate the problem.

It would help if you can provide more information. I'm not asking you to thoroughly diagnose the problem. But be more specific about your observations: Tell me exactly when the countdown is "reset", and exactly what you mean by "reset".

Hi Thurallor, thanks for the update.

I made the update and fix the times but the countdowns are resetting yet, I don't know if I'm making something wrong, I will do more test and I tell you later.

EDIT: Now is working fine, I will do another test with a recipe countdown...
EDIT 2: Today the countdown were reset again...

You're right, I'm using Lotropad for make this anotations and register the characters, but sometimes can be very annoying do it manually, that is the idea for something more of automatization.

Don't give up, your work is great, thanks again for make theses plugins for the community.

The work of people like both of you is very invaluable for us, thank you guys.

Interesting. It hadn't occurred to me that the internal server clocks might not be synchronized with each other. I'll look into it. It may be an easy fix.

Yeah, something like a spreadsheet for have a record of the characters, the ideal could be that the general info like name, class, etc. where fill automatically but at same time we can create our own colums for anotations, for the alt-lovers like me this could be very useful, I don't know if is possible with LUA get the info of the equipament.
Well, I could make a generic "spreadsheet" plugin, but it would be a very poor imitation of Excel. I'm not sure there is a point. The only advantage would be you wouldn't have to use Alt+Tab to switch between the game and Excel.

Interesting idea. It will work, but you need to do the correct symbolic link (with mklink on Windows, or ln -s on Mac/Linux):
PluginData/account/server2/AllCharacters/Reminders.plugindata -> PluginData/account/server1/AllCharacters/Reminders.plugindata
Note that if you use the same character name on both servers, you will have no way to distinguish the reminders for the two characters. But otherwise, it should work fine.

A major impediment to adding multiple-server support to the plugin is that the Lua interface currently has no way to detect which server you're logged into. Working around that limitation requires some trickery, some manual user input, and some added complexity to the plugin design; and it's not foolproof (in particular, symbolic links can interfere with the server detection trickery). I'm not sure if/when I will get around to implementing it.

And third a big petition, can you create a similar plugin to this for track characters, using a similar metod that Reminders, something where we can have name, level, class, vocation and user camps. Thanks again and good luck!in and good luck!

I'll add it in the next version.

I might be able to do that relatively easily. I'll look into it.

I don't understand. What would be the purpose of a reminder, if it didn't tell you which raid/stage?

Carn Dum has Raid Locks, right? That one should be soloable by most characters that are of a higher level.

Otherwise I discovered that Dar Narbugud is pretty easy to solo these days if you are lvl100+ - you can get the first ID in a few minutes.

I don't think that it should check WHICH IDs you have but only when they reset.

If you enter /raid locks you get a full list of the current locks in the chat-lock - pehaps it would be ok to just listen if the user uses that command and then add an entry for every line in the log?

It's formated as followed:

The Twins' Silver Chest resets in: 0d - 11h - 33m.
Thanks a lot for your work and for the fast answer!

Re: Great Plugin - a few possible improvements

Hi, Melaga,

Quote:
I like to have festival-quests in their own tab since there are quite a few of them that I'd like to track and it would clutter the General-Tab; my problem is that when I complete one of the festival-quests instead of checking in the other tab and marking the quest as done the plugin creates a new entry in the General tab that I then manually have to push over to my festival-tab - it would be nice it other tabs could be checked, too - or if we could assign a specific tab to repeatable quests in the first place
You can assign a specific tab (and category) to repeatable quests. In the options panel, under the Character tab, you should see the following:

What you cannot currently do is to specify a different tab/category for each individual quest. But I could add that.

Quote:
The other entry is a minor one but I'd like it if when sorting entries by time, if multiple entries are available it would show those with a "static" time period (like crafting-recipes) first and then those that reset when the server does since those with a static time are more urgent than those that only reset with the server where it doesn't matter if you do them first
I think when sorting by the "Time" column, most users want the reminders to be listed in order of expiration time, regardless of urgency. You can, however, sort the table by any other column (such as Category), and you can assign a "more urgent color" to more urgent categories. Or, you can put the "non-urgent" ones into a different tab.

Quote:
the third one also is a smaller convenience feature that would go well with the general idea of the plugin: raid locks

it would be cool if the plugin could check raid-locks (just their reset-times) and display those in a specific tab, too
For example if you want to farm old raids for the housing items.
For now, the only way to keep track of raid locks would be to manually create your own reminders for them, or use the automatic-reminder feature since they are basically repeatable quests.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Thumbs up Great Plugin - a few possible improvements

First of all: I love your plugin - I have three suggestions though:

I like to have festival-quests in their own tab since there are quite a few of them that I'd like to track and it would clutter the General-Tab; my problem is that when I complete one of the festival-quests instead of checking in the other tab and marking the quest as done the plugin creates a new entry in the General tab that I then manually have to push over to my festival-tab - it would be nice it other tabs could be checked, too - or if we could assign a specific tab to repeatable quests in the first place

The other entry is a minor one but I'd like it if when sorting entries by time, if multiple entries are available it would show those with a "static" time period (like crafting-recipes) first and then those that reset when the server does since those with a static time are more urgent than those that only reset with the server where it doesn't matter if you do them first

the third one also is a smaller convenience feature that would go well with the general idea of the plugin: raid locks

it would be cool if the plugin could check raid-locks (just their reset-times) and display those in a specific tab, too
For example if you want to farm old raids for the housing items.

even without those features it's still one of my 3 favorite plugins together with Buffbars and Titanbar - keep up the great work!
