Accomplishment
Version: 2.1.3
by: Ethan Centaurai [More]
Accomplishment (noun)
"Something completed successfully; goal reached"

This is a small addon with one purpose: to provide an easy way to congratulate someone, be they a guildie or a random stranger, when they earn an Achievement.

Features:
- Auto-popup when an Achievement is unlocked by someone.
- Left-click the name to congratulate the person.
- Right-click the name to remove it from the list.
- Clicking "Close" hides the window and removes all names from the list.
- Window resizes whenever new names are added or removed. It starts off small and unobtrusive but gets bigger with each new name added.
- Window can be moved about and remembers it's position (saved in layout-cache.txt).
- Congratulatory message is customisable. Use '%s' where you want the user's name to appear (or not, if you wish).
- If you prefer, you can choose to congratulate automatically instead of clicking a button.

Options panel can be found in Interface -> AddOns -> Accomplishment.


To Do:
- Allow multiple congratulatory messages (well done!, awesome job!, grats! etc).
- Add timestamps to buttons, so you know who earned what when.
- Add sorting of names, so most recent achievers will appear at the top.


If you've found an error or would like to suggest a feature, please make a new ticket in the issues hub or leave a comment here.
Version 2.1.3
- Updated for WoW 3.2.0.
- Added AddonLoader support.

Version 2.1.2
- Updated for WoW 3.1.0.

Version 2.1.1
- Add an "All" button to manually congratulate everyone in the list (button is disabled if only one name is shown).
- Move "Congratulatory Message" option to the bottom, increase width to "full".

Version 2.1.0
- Automatic congratulating has had an overhaul! A huge thanks to Sylvanaar for your help with this update!
- If multiple players earn Achievements at once and the amount doing so is less than your chosen maximum of shown names, the addon will congratulate them with their names concatenated together (e.g. Congratulations Kiyomi, Sylvaan, Cairenn!)
- If the amount is more than your chosen maximum, the addon will congratulate them all and refer to them as "guys" (e.g. Congratulations guys!)
- Automatic congratulations will be sent 3 seconds after the Achievement is earned, to appear less like a bot.

Version 2.0.4
- Added option to choose the number of names shown in the list (minimum is 1, maximum is 20).
- Added dynamic frame resizing.

Version 2.0.3
- The window will now close itself when all the names have been clicked on.

Version 2.0.2
- You can now choose whether to congratulate only your guildies, only the people around you, or everyone.

Version 2.0.1b
- Fix stupid typos causing may things to die.

Version 2.0.1
- Add option to automatically congratulate someone if you don't want to click on their names in a window.
- Fixed bug where you could congratulate yourself when you earn an Achievement.
- Tweaked window height a smidge.

Version 2.0
- Major re-write! w00t!
- Add options to use say, guild, or whisper channels to congratulate with. As a result, we can now congratulate people outside of your guild when they get an Achievement. Options panel can be found in Interface -> AddOns -> Accomplishment.
- Congratulatory message is now customisable.
- Fixed zip file path integrity (oops!).

Version 1.0
- Initial release.

Could you please add a function that automatically congratulates Guild members to your TODO list? And indeed, the configurable message would be nice as well.



Fonjask


EDIT: I configured the message myself, making it a whisper. I'm in a large guild, and will drive guildies nuts with /g chat.

HOWTO: In the Core.lua file, change

SendChatMessage("Congratulations "..user.."!", "GUILD")
to
SendChatMessage("Congrats "..user.."!", "WHISPER", "Common", ""..user.."")


EDIT2: And you packed your zip wrong, put those two files in a map 'GuildAchiever', and then zip THAT map.

EDIT3: If you're Horde, change "Common" to "Oricsh". There is a command to get your default language, but I'm not an addon maker myself...

Command: GetDefaultLanguage("player")



Good luck with the scripting

Great job on the updates (.zip file ), your addon is the only addon of its kind!

TODO: Indeed, close the window when the to-congratulate-players = 0 and also, please add an option (if possible) to automatically congratulate people when they get an achievement, because I really like your addon but it's quite annoying when I'm doing a raid and some guildies are doing e.g. The Nexus Heroic and they all get tons of achievements who get in the way of my HealBot ^^.

Good luck

s, Fonjask.

Love the addon, been torturing.. I mean congratulating my guildmates with it for a while now.

Have one nitpick, unrelated to the actual addon though. This addons new name/title..

Accomplishment (formally Guild Achiever)

formally: In a formal manner; By a method prescribed by procedure

I think you meant:

formerly: at some time in the past; previously; once

Sorry for being a nitpick, just thought you'd like to know.

Edit: also, the zip file has accomplishment misspelled.

Re: Auto

Thanks!!! I love this addon!

As noted above, there are some spelling issues. I had to rename the folder Accomplishment from Accomplisment for the game to recognize the addon.

Thanks for the update. I love the new features!

Thanks, this has been fixed.

It does? Strange... how did that happen?
I'll rezip and reupload and see if that fixes it.

EDIT: Version 2.0.1a has the correct folder name. Sorry about that, I don't know what happened there.
EDIT: Version 2.0.1b fixes the problems where AceGUI-3.0 couldn't be found. Again, sorry about that.

Note to self: Each time you make a stupid typo, God kills a kitten.

Accomplishment

Just a note on your introductory text of your addon...

Accomplishment is a noun, not a verb. The verb is "to accomplish"! ;-)

And the addon is a very cool idea, thanks!

I thought that 'verb' was wrong, turns out it was. Thanks.

hello

I love this mod very much and works fine with the german client.
I wish it would always possible to congratulate my friends or group-members who are not in my guild or stand not near by me.

Exclamation Update not workin on German Client

Accomplishment does not work at all. It is supposed to be loaded, but nothing happens when somebody standing right next to me accomplishes an achievement. Also I am not able to open a configuration window or whatever by entering /accomplishment or /accomplish or whatever in the chat window. FYI I use the German client.

Greetings,
Thors Liebling
