LOTRO Plugins and You


To get your LOTRO client up and running plugins, follow these basic steps.

1.    1.Download 7zip Here or ensure you have a unzipping program that supports .7z format.  WinRAR also works.

2.    2. Download Turbines sample plugins Here. (THIS IS A DIRECT DOWNLOAD, you may have to right-click and 'download-here')

    Unzip these files into your “Lord of the Rings Online” folder.  This is typically found “C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings     Online”.  This varies for all systems.  This folder contains your screenshots.
    
    You should now have a folder ”…\The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins”  this is where all future plug-ins will be extracted.

3.    3.Download the Plug-in manager Here. 

    Extract the file to your ”…\The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins” folder.  This will help you manage your plugins.  Plugin manager will allow one simple plugin     load for each LOTRO session.  This is, in my opinion, a necessity for anyone using plugins.

4.    4. Next visit a site that has LOTRO plugins.  I have only used LOTROPlugins and LOTROInterface.


To access and use plugins in game there are a few basic commands:

/plugins load NameOfPlugin  (ex: /plugins load manager)

/plugins refresh

/plugins list

/plugins unload (unloads all plugins, only necessary if you haven’t installed the plugin manager)

/NameOfPlugin (this runs the plugin, ex: /manager)

Note:

*You will get a response from each command you input. 

*If you are getting an error loading plugins, try /plugins refresh and then try again.

*You will need to load every plugin for the manager to recognize it, but only once if you install the manager.

Step 2 link should be a simple download.  Try right click and download.  I will check on my other Comp today.

Right-click and download worked for me.

I like:
Manager
Palantir
Buffbars
Travel

KragenBars has potential, looking foward to updates to that one.

Grind - I tricked it down via a half hour of websearches and got Palantir, Buffbars and Travel up & working.  (OMG it is sick tp actually have free slots as a hunter!)
Got a manager but it's always blank even when others are loaded - thinking I need to kill it and find another.  As I'm only running three I can live without it - for now.
