Description
Waypoint 1.9
by Lunarwater

about:

Waypoint is a simple addon to assist in targeting your character in the right direction instead of having to look at the map a ton. It is more of a proof of concept until we get better lua support for location tracking, but is still in a usable state.

KNOWN ISSUES:
  • I'll be the first to warn you that it uses /loc, and therefore you will incur some chattab spam. I would recommend you create a new chat tab vs using general chat so you don't have to see the output of /loc. If this is a problem for you please do not use at this time. I am hoping one day Turbine will release an API method for getting location & direction info and then this will go away.
  • /loc data is different Inside dungeons. Initial
  • My lotro characters is only level 16, so I have not tried this in other regions. If you encounter problems in another region you can assist me by recording /loc values, along with ;loc for that same location and posting below.
  • Attempting to navigate coordinates between regions will not work as expected. They use different coordinate systems, and will result in the arrow pointing in wrong direction. Try to stick to navigating coordinates within the same zone for now.

CHANGELOG:
Version 1.9 :
  • Fixing number parsing for 64bit DE client

Version 1.8 :
  • Fixing chatlog location parsing (again >.<)

Version 1.7 :
  • Fixing chatlog location parsing

Version 1.6 :
  • Fixing chatlog location parsing

Version 1.5 :
  • Bug fix submitted regarding improper listing of east and west for french and german versions of the game. (thanks Venogorn!)

Version 1.4:
  • Fixed waypoint to properly determine location with recent changes to game
  • While I'm not sure if it will help, I make the Waypoint work indoors.

Version 1.3 :
  • Changed chat channel parser for changes in RoI Update 6
  • Fixed but when user was facing due north, coordinates would not get parsed. (thanks Garan)
  • Remove extranious output to chat channel by plugin
  • Added plugin manager icon and description

Version 1.2 :
  • changes necessary for it to work in German and French LoTRO client
  • changes necessary for it to work better with LoTRO Compendium
  • small tweak to LPC plugin configuration file that was incorrect

Version 1.1 :
  • Made it so you can click on things that are behind the transparent portions of waypoint.
  • Calculate # of meters vs generic units for distance
  • Save position of waypoint so it remembers where you last placed it on screen.
  • Adding LPC file

Version 1.0 : initial release

INSTALL:
  1. Delete any older Waypoint install from your Plugins folder
    (i.e. C:\Documents and Settings\Lunarwater\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins\Waypoint)
  2. Copy the entire Waypoint folder into your LOTRO plugins folder
    (i.e. C:\Documents and Settings\Lunarwater\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins\Waypoint)
  3. Start LOTRO. Once in game type: /plugins load Waypoint

USAGE:

/way help : shows Waypoint help
/way show : shows Waypoint
/way hide : hides Waypoint
/way target <coordinate> : target a coordinate for waypoint
(i.e. /way target 21.4S 45W)


Once a target is set, an arrow will appear on your screen. You will need to click the middle of arrow for it to know where u are at and what direction you are facing. The arrow will then point in a direction like a compass. Simply rotate your character and move in that direction. Periodically you can click arrow again to check your distance from target & check that you are still headed in correct direction.

You can also make a shortcut to periodically do a /loc if you wish to hit
a key to update the waypoint. (i.e. /shortcut <slot #> /loc )

Re: Re: Re: waypoint is Broken (German Client)

How exactly do I reproduce this? I downloaded DE files, but the plugin data folder seems to be saving numbers correctly. Is there a way to confirm I'm using 32bit vs 64bit client?

nevermind. Google answered me.

This is most likely due to the undocumented change in the 64-bit client and will likely require Lunarwater to implement a change in the plugin. For more info, see
https://www.lotrointerface.com/forum...ead.php?t=3836

Note, this change only affects the 64-bit DE/FR clients, so you should be able to use the 32-bit client just fine until Lunarwater has a chance to account for this in the plugin.
Yes exactly! Some users from my German community wrote me that Waypoint 1.8 works fine with the 32Bit German client. But not with the 64 Bit German Client

Waypoint does not seem to work anymore. At least not in the German client. In english it works as usual.

If you enter coordinates with /way target 10.10n 10.10w in the German client, the following error comes back

...ings Online\Plugins\Lunarwater\Waypoint\Waypoint.lua:24 4: attempt to compare nil with number

The coordinates are only an example! In the English client it works as usual. Tested 1.8 and 1.7

Are you aware of the error in the German Client? When I click on the ICON (arrow) everything is shown in the chat, but the icon (arrow) doesn't change its direction anymore to show me where to go. It does not change by pressing on it, it just shows straight ahead

Chat Output German Client NOT WORK


Chat Output English Client WORKS!
Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I will get my game patched and fix.

Re: 1.7 German Client (NIt Works)

Ah, I guess there was a stealth update to add the server ID in French and German. (It was not mentioned in the release notes.) That's good news.

I have a new version of the plugin but it still only prints to me in chat / loc. I don't know if it's a Waypoint plugin error or there is a problem in the MoorMap and Terrain Map plugins, because before I clicked on the Waypoint icon in these plugins, which is implemented in the mentioned plugins, 2 actions happened. the first action consisted in the fact that my location was posted in the chat and the second action was that on the plugin map I saw the mark where exactly I am
My bad, I thought you meant the arrow for Waypoint.

There is a problem /loc in MoorMap and TerrainMap. That is being updated by Garan. Yes when you enter Alias/loc in TerrainMap a large x appears and Moormap a red blinking arrow. if you go to MoorsMap orTerrainMap..scroll down and bottom right You will find Comments tab -dropdown button\select add to email feeds. An update is being worked on.

You simply need to install the new version of Waypoint.

Hello, vecny.samotar -- If you type (/way) in chat window, a list of commands show up. To get the arrow to show, simple type (/way show) and the arrow will show up empty with ? mark target needed. now to put in the co-ord of any point in the map you want to travel to, cmd is (/way target 13.2s 64.1w) the arrow will now have the location with a refresh sign, you need to left click the arrow(or type /loc), then you.ll see the arrow change the direction that you need to go and (my fav) distance in M of how far to the <target destination>. As you mouse over any part of MoorMap or TerrainMap you.ll see the location on the top bar changing till the mouse is no longer moving. When done (/way hide) closes the arrow.
