Exclamation Version 1.3.5

After reconsidering to benefits of having plugins in different apartments, I've decided to revert to having them all in the same apartment so that clicking on an already loaded plugin icon will once again open the plugin window. This will also require new versions of my other plugins. To restore the functionality in the other plugins before I've published updates for them, you can edit their .plugin to contain the following line: <Configuration Apartment="Vinny"/>

I've also added a tooltip to the icons displayed to identify which plugin they represent.

Exclamation Version 1.3.2

I've added support for a new plugin that I will add soon called RuneUse which helps to sort out when to use runes and which characters can use them. I fixed a bad Id field used by Plugin Compendium and I updated the documentation.

I also added an option to force a plugin to reload that saves significant time when testing plugins but will have limited use for regular users. Holding down the Alt key when clicking on a plugin image will request it to be reloaded, but requires the plugin to support it (I'll be updating them over time).

Exclamation Version 1.2

I've added support for a new plugin, LostLore, which is an in-game reference for Lost Lore pages and other rare items like Treasure Chests and Dwarf Markers. I'm still developing it, so only some zones are currently available.

I also made a fix so that when loaded on a smaller-sized screen than the default, the window will still be visible.

Re: Version 1.1

I really love your work and plugins. But CraftMats wont load for me when I use the ingame Ikon.

I have CraftMats 0.9 installed.
I have VinnyLoader 1.1 installed
I see the Ikon of CraftMats ingame.

But when I click it I get this message:

VL: CraftMats is not updated for VL open action.

I have deleted the whole Vinny folder and reinstalled both of the plugins 2 times.

First time installing CraftMats first and then VinnyLoader. Second time the other way around. Both times with same result.

Version 1.1

I added support for a new plugin, CraftMats, that I've been developing since last year. I waited on releasing this version until the new plugin was also released.

This new plugin is for crafters with many alts to help keep track of who has what mats and which ones can benefit from processing the mats. CraftMats can be found here: http://www.lotrointerface.com/downloads/info1077

Hey Vinny,

Excellent work on all of the plugins. I typically run Campsite, CookingRef and TravelRef and was overjoyed to find this loader as well.

I do have one request though. Is there any way you could please make the 'little line' to grab and move the icon bar a little bigger, or even better put a window border around the entire thing? It is soooo difficult to grab at the resolution I run at, usually takes me at least 5 minutes to click on the right location.

Thank you for all the work you've done - you have made my game a lot better!

Re: Re: Loader position

There is a thin line between the icons that can be used to drag the window. As documented in the ReadMe file, when you have the window in the desired position, you can save it by setting the auto-open option (turn it off first if needed).

ok I admit I only skimmed the readme and missed it. Sorry my bad. I shall report for flogging directly.

I did read below that you were working on the moving but didnt want the loader code to get too large. I dont mind having to move it all the time so saving position for me is not an issue.

Loader position

I am by no means a plugin coder.
I enjoy using your plugins as do most of the people in my kin.

With the recent addition of full screen windowed to the graphics options I have stumbled on an irritant. several plugins wont go farther to the bottom of the screen than where it would be if it was in true window mode. due to the placement of other objects on my screen that I am used to the loader now appears in the middle of my chat window. I poked around a little and couldn't get it to display at the lower left anymore where I liked it. I did see that you had a drag feature coded but it did not work for me. I figured out how to increase the window width that allowed me to move use the drag option but I now have a big white square at the end of the loader.

All that aside, would you be able to modify your loader to move without the white square or still load in the visible lower left or even the upper left could work.

I did read below that you were working on the moving but didnt want the loader code to get too large. I dont mind having to move it all the time so saving position for me is not an issue.

Just trying to open whatever is the default.
Is this the first time that you have tried to use it? The error indicates that the icon file for one of the plugins that it loads is missing. If you have an old copy of one of my other plugins installed, then it might be missing the .tga file for the icon. Do all the plugins have an icon that shows up in the About tab of the Plugin Manager?

Hmm, I have no idea since it won't open therefore I haven't configured it at all. Just trying to open whatever is the default. From your instructions you have to check for small icons which I have not done.

Exclamation Version 1.0.1

I just realized that I left one of the debug prints in the released version (that's what I get for working on it late at night when I'm half asleep)
