Description
Introduction

This patch fixes issues with the 'BuffBars MaJ/Update 2017' for BuffBars.
It also changes the clock display for long-lasting buffs like VIP Subscriber Buffs from hour:minute:second (302:42:12) to an approximation (~12days).

Issues fixed:
  • Fixed issue of non-updating copies of EffectWindows being created when you save changes.
  • Fixed issue where EffectWindows would not hide when pressing F12
  • Changed code to not make use of SetWantsUpdates(true) for each EffectWindow, QuickslotBar, and SliderWindow.
  • Fixed clock display of long-lasting buffs.

Outstanding issues:
  • List of potions still needs updating

Installation and Setup

To install:
  • First, you need to install BuffBars v2.1.1 and BuffBars MaJ/Update 2017 v1.0.0. This patch only includes the necessary changes to update from there. To install BuffBars, you can use Plugin Compendium, or just unzip the archive and drag the "PengorosPlugins" folder into your "Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins" folder. (If you have not previously installed any plugins, you will have to first create the Plugins folder.) To install BuffBars MaJ/Update 2017 unzip the archive and drag the "PengorosPlugins" folder into your "Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins" folder.
  • Next, download this patch and unzip it. It also contains a "PengorosPlugins" folder, which you should drag into the same place as before. You will be prompted to overwrite files. Answer yes.

To load the plugin, use the game's built-in Plugin Manager. This can be found in the "^" menu, at the bottom of the screen, or by typing /plugin manager into your chat window.

When the Plugin Manager opens, find BuffBars in the list on the left side. Verify that the version is 2.1.1.4. (If it is 2.1.1, then you have not properly installed the patch.) Click "Load" to load the plugin. If you would like the plugin to load automatically each time you login, choose your character's name in the "Automatically Load For" pulldown menu.

Error comes from Combat Analysis as I found out, is there a connection because of queries in the lua scripte?
I switched to the German client and tried loading Combat Analysis without Buff Bars. I also see the message
Quote:
Laden der Eigenschaften fehlgeschlagen. ...
When I click Ja, I then see the error

An unexpected error occured while restoring the default trait configurations. Please re-load the plugin before continuing.
in Standard chat.

Because this happens even if BuffBars is not loaded, this does not seem to be related to BuffBars. Can you check if you see the error message after unloading all plugins and only loading CombatAnalysis?

I have the problem on German client, the other clients I have not tried. This query comes on every new login and on all my chars. I always have to click yes for the plugin to start, if no it is off.

I'll look again later after the patch if something has changed.

I am not experiencing any errors since the last update. I have logged in at least once to a character of all 11 classes and 7 races. I just thought I'd note that here because while I'm sure bornfight's experience is real, it is not a universal problem.

I get this error message every time I log in on all chars, since the last update.

Thanks, and great question! I have been hesitant to 'take over' a really popular plugin just because the author does not appear to be active anymore.

Hello b414213562,

I'm a big fan of your streams and explanations, even if I'm too dumb to learn coding in LUA. I can change small UI problems in existing plugins, but all other things are too complicated for me. German is a very "big" language - "big" because the words needs way more space than english in most cases.

Following your fixes for other patches, why don't you release a complete new version to make if easier for gamers instead of making a fix for a patch for an old plugin? Just interested. Thanks for your time!

Hmm, now to figure out how to trigger a cut-scene for testing.
Start up a new human or hobbit character. After you do a very few quests you will get the "take a nap" quest in Brackenbrook's cabin where you visit Galadriel in a dream that is a game-engine cutscene.

Hmm, now to figure out how to trigger a cut-scene for testing.
I took a character through the end-of-Angmar/Amarthiel book quests yesterday and when Mordrambor escapes there is a game-engine cutscene so I experienced this again. This time, it was with a character using both BuffBars and WardenEase and neither the BuffBars nor the WardenEase UI elements were hidden during the cutscene. I don't use other mods which have UI elements on the screen all the time, others are triggered with keybinds or buttons (buttons which themselves are hidden unless I mouse over them).

It is possible there was some small change to the game engine with the Gundabad release which is causing this. It might have nothing to do with your BuffBars patch. This definitely wasn't happening earlier but I have no way of narrowing down the cause. I hope my observation that this affects more than just BuffBars helps.

I have noticed a bug with v2.1.1.3:
During game-engine cutscenes, the entire UI is suppressed except for BuffBars which remains on screen.

BuffBars does respect UI Show/Hide commands but there seems to be something about the cutscenes which is not triggering the "hide" for BuffBars.

Thanks!

I don't use a lot of addons but I really like BuffBars. Thanks for creating this update to BuffBars and making it compatible with Galphoglas's patch.
