    In fact, two possible situations:
    server does not say anything and client assumes it's "text/html" (by default)
    OR
    server does say it's "application/x-7z-compressed", but client does not understand this and falls back to default "text/html"...

    but anyway, just use "save target as..."

    Re: Documentation and examples updated!

    so I manually changed all the ".GetInstance" calls in my add-ons..and voila
    it's a shame there is no similar workaround/fix for the inventory add-ons

    no dev update yet?

    I, for one, am anxiously awaiting these corrections. I know it is in Beta but the Lua API should receive a lot more active attention (if it's not already) in my opinion. It's just that important to a lot of people's enjoyment of the game.

    I did this, it downloaded 89kb of info and is completely useless. Short Answer: these aren't worth the pain in **** to repair/patch everytime Turbine updates.

    Long Explanation: Thanks to all who use their time and knowledge to develop plug-ins, some of them are really spectacular. However, the snafus and dilligaf position of the parent company will prohibit me from trying many of your plugins, because quite simply, I don't have a lot of playtime, and I don't want to spend it trying to figure out why something is not WAI. Hell, I can't even get the LINKS in the original message to allow me to download the info I need to run your programs.../ack.

    Seriously though, you guys do some great work, I just wish someone could develop a plugin autopatcher. I don't have the knowledge or skillset, otherwise I wouldn't be navel gazing; I'd be trying to develop one.

    You also need to download 7-zip in order to extract that format (available here)

    You mean code written by Microsoft (IE) and Apple (Webkit - what makes Safari and Chrome work) doesn't want to play nicely with the rest of us?

    Now there's a shocker....

    Yeah, I mean standards? who needs those? If every browser generated pages exactly the same, that would be way too boring.

    Re: Documentation and examples updated!

    Firefox gives you the option to Save as... In the window under the file it says save as txt file, but you can change that to save as all files from the drop-down menu - then it will see the type of file it is and save it correctly. Worked for me. Thanks for all your hard work everyone!

    Re: Documentation and examples updated!

    It would REALLY be nice if this was brought up to date with Update 7. It would save hours of digging and searching for more information on the new/changed features.

    So November 2010 was the last time the documentation was updated? Nothing new since then?
    As a level 1 burglar, Bilbo got a pony when he joined the Smaug The Dragon raid. Then he asked for leadership, looted the chest, assigned himself the 1st age Arkenstone and mailed it to an alt (Bilbo's a VIP so can mail from anywhere). They did some PvMP and an Epic Battle, then he apologized and gave the Arkenstone back. He kept the pony.

    The latest docs are from Nov 20, 2013 when Helm's Deep was released. They can be found at lotrointerface.com at:

    Perhaps the original post in this thread should be updated: "Last edited by Narrel; Oct 19 2011 at 01:24 PM."
    Surely there have been changes since 2011?

    What you are seeing is a forum function that shows when the forum post itself was updated. You can find it in any updated post on the forum. It has nothing to do with the specific content of the post. Also only the original author or a forum admin can do that.

    Yeah. When new documents come out, the original post should be updated to reflect that, to list API fixes/changes. It's almost been two years now since I last posted here. Still no updates?

    It is highly unlikely that there will ever be any new documentation or updates to the LUA API as the developers that donated their time to implement LUA are no longer working on LOTRO per the prior Executive Producer, Vyvyanne, in a PM. They may not even be employed by Turbine at this point but that I don't know. Sadly, Vyvyanne didn't even know what LUA was until I asked her about the status of LUA and updates back in August of 2015. She did look into it enough to find out that the devs were no longer working on LOTRO and there were no plans to expand the API at that time. I doubt after all this time whether any other developer would voluntarily (LUA was implemented in LOTRO voluntarily by a couple of devs on their own time) risk messing around in code written by other devs over two years ago.
