Broker RaidSave  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.1.2 Beta
by: Zhinjio, Torhal
Broker RaidSave is an Ace3/LDB plugin that allows tracking of raid IDs across characters. It started out as a "port" based on FuBar_RaidSaveFu, with permission from jokeyrhyme, the author of the original, but eventually followed a different path.

The plugin will display the number of active (and optionally expired) saved instances for the current character on the button/block, separated into a [Group]:[Raid]:[Expired] format and will also display a list of alt characters, along with their saved instance ID's and expiration times, on the tooltip. The tooltip provides clickable functionality, allowing the player to paste instance information in an open chat box, or toggle extension of active (or even expired) instance IDs. Right-clicking the plugin, will toggle display of Blizzard's Raid Information frame.

The addon obviously has to have been used on a character before any of their information will be available.

You may configure the information shown on the button/tooltip by right clicking on the plugin and setting the appropriate options to your liking, on the addon configuration panel.

The addon should be considered beta quality, yet stable enough to warrant a release. Please report any issues you encounter, especially when it comes to proper detection of saved instances.


Bear in mind that Broker RaidSave, as all DataBroker plugins does not provide it's own display, you will need a LDB-based display addon, such as Fortress, Carousel, StatBlockCore, Titan Panel etc.

2.1.2 Beta:
- ToC version update for WoW 4.2
2.1.1 Beta :
- Tried to repackage with as little change to code as I could. Unfortunately, much of it was outdated and required some rewrite just to get it working again.
- This was mainly just repacking to get fresh libs into the package (the old libs were causing errors, no surprise).
- MUCH more rewriting will be necessary, but for not, it is functional
2.0 [2009.08.23]
- Major update.
- Modified plugin text. Display for number of active instances has been scrapped in favor of a [Group]:[Raid]:[Expired] format, which will now apply to both normal and "short" text. Expired instances can still be optionally hidden from the text display.
- Added an option to hide the hint text from the tooltip.
- Fixed a bug, where the tooltip would not be shown and the plugin would error, when hiding the instance difficulty column, while still attempting to sort saved instances by difficulty. In such a case, the plugin will now revert to instance name sorting. The difficulty sorting option now requires difficulty shown, to be enabled, until a better solution can be implemented.
- Added clickable functionality to the tooltip. You are now able to paste saved instance information, to an open chat box, by Shift-Clicking the appropriate instance name. In addition, you may toggle extension of the instance ID expiration period by simply Right-Clicking on its name. Blue colored instance names, indicate instances with "extended IDs".
- Added an option to enable scrolling for the tooltip, with a selectable tooltip maximum height for the scrollbar to be enabled.
- Various minor, "under the hood" corrections and improvements.
- Updated libraries and localization (work in progress).
-------------------------------
1.8 [2009.08.07]
- Updated libraries and localization (work in progress).
- Modified the wording on a few option buttons and descriptions, to clarify their functionality.
- Modified the plugin text to properly report and differentiate between active and expired saved instances. Modified the short text option in accordance with this change.
- Replaced the "Hide expired instances" option button with 2 separate options, allowing a player to hide expire instances from either the tooltip, the button/block or both.
-------------------------------
1.7 [2009.08.04]
- Updated .toc, libraries and existing localization.
- Added German (deDE) localization.
- Committed necessary changes to support the new API, regarding dungeon types and dungeon difficulty.
- Set the BackdropBorderColor to properly reflect the original values of the GameTooltip for consistency.
- Expired instances will now be shown by default on the tooltip, in accordance with the new dungeon and API changes, allowing an instance ID to be extended beyond its normal duration.
- Added a new option in the configuration menu, under the "Instance Expiration" category, to hide expired instances from the tooltip summary.
- Implemented left click handling, in order to display the revamped Raid Information frame.
- Cleaned up and simplified the tooltip code.
- Fixed sorting by instance difficulty.
- Corrected the "Show instance difficulty mode" tooltip description, in the plugin's configuration menu.
- Properly localized the label and tooltip description for the "Hide expired instances" option.
- Properly "desaturated" the instance ID and difficulty labels for expired instances.
- Added tooltip hint (localization needed - work in progress).
-------------------------------
1.6 [2009.06.05]
- Updated to the latest revision of LibQTip-1.0 that deals with the clipping issue once and for all.
- Updated .toc with proper tags for Minion support.
-------------------------------
1.5d [2009.05.26]
- Updated to r92 of LibQTip.
-------------------------------
1.5c [2009.05.24]
- Updated to r87 of LibQTip-1.0 in order to resolve the issue with the problematic upgrade code.
-------------------------------
1.5b [2009.05.24]
- Library update.
- Now properly releasing the tooltip, when clicking on the plugin.
-------------------------------
1.5 [2009.05.09]
- Added support for CUSTOM_CLASS_COLORS.
- Library update.
-------------------------------
1.4b [2009.04.13]
- Updated .toc to 30100.
- Ace3 Update.
-------------------------------
1.4 [2009.03.09]
- LibQTip-1.0 update.
- Fixed a few global references for the sake of code brevity.
- Added two new options in the configuration menu, that allow sorting of the instance list, on the tooltip, either by instance name or instance difficulty (only one of the 2 options may be selected at a time and instance difficulty needs to be 'shown' for difficulty sorting to have any effect).
- Updated localization to accommodate the recent changes.
-------------------------------
1.3b [2009.02.03]
- Moved saved variables initialization from VARIABLES_LOADED to ADDON_LOADED event for reliability and performance purposes.
-------------------------------
1.3 [2009.01.18]
- Fixed a bug that would prevent proper saving of the instance difficulty option, between sessions.
-------------------------------

Nitpicking: old raids show up as 10 mans instead of 20 or 40 mans.

Still love the addon though

Fully tested here, the mod works perfectly in WoW 3.3 live (as of this date). No errors, proper performance and functionality.

There are now many mods like this one out there which display raid/instance multi-character save data. But Broker RaidSave is still the best one (i.e. my favorite) of this type.

New version is out, since my vacation allowed me to work on the addon and implement the things I wanted to for a long time now. So, clickable tooltip, active instances split between group and raids and we'll see how it goes.

Interesting idea. Will take it under consideration.

Other than that new issue, this has been my favorite mod of this type.
The 'Hide Expired' setting will apply to the display text as well in the next release coming soon(tm). Moreover, the label will most likely be split to 'Active: <number>' and 'Expired: <number>', with the option to hide the expired part, if you want to. I believe that would be way better.

Not yet, but I will be implementing that on the next release. Basically I'm not done with the plugin yet, there are several things I want to add, such as clicking.

Yes, implementing this is on my "ToDo" list. The tooltip is basically going to become clickable, so you may click the title of a raid instance and paste the information to chat. I'm just holding off to confirm what happens to the current PTR with the new instance and everything.

Edit : The PTR has introduced some significant changes in regards to instance difficulties and expired/extended ID's, so I will be focusing on making sure basic functionality works, before moving on to a clickable tooltip.

A feature I was wondering if you'd consider is a way to print the saved instances (poss even the time they reset) to a chat frame (guild).

Thanks

LOL after doing as you suggested I got the error below, I discovered that Ackis Recipe List must be using an older version of the lib(file dates were different) after replacing it with the one included in your addons, no more error, but it'll probably break something else Thanks!

Limb0 : Yes, I'm considering that option but it will require the use of an additional library that is currently being revamped.

jwhelan : Upgrade your Broker_Factions addon. The version you have installed is using an older version of the LibQTip library and apparently there is an issue when upgrading the library, that I have reported to the library authors, so it can be fixed in a future revision.
