QuestGuru  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.3.02-60000
by: Lazare69, Gregity, mrobrian
QuestGuru is a Quest Log enhancer.


Features include:
  • Enhanced quest display in the log
  • Patch 6.0 broke QuestGuru, so this is a completely different monster
  • Conforms to the WOD map quest log (Tooltips for quests and icons showing quest status)
  • Added full time quest level in front of quest name



For those who are missing the Quest Tracker of QuestGuru, try Sorha Quest Log @http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/sorhaquestlog
I have been using it for a little while and is not half bad


TO-DO's:
  • Will try and revamp the quest tracker as I love it also. But wanted to get the Log out ASAP.
  • Try to bring back the other features of the old QuestGuru (Sounds, announcements, etc.)



F A Q
====================
Q. How do I post a Bug Report?
  • Note:
  • Please include the version of QuestGuru you are using and copy/paste the error message you receive.
  • Please describe what you were doing when the error happened. This will help tremendously.


Q. How do I turn on auto-tracking of quests?
  • A - Look in the options for the game itself, not QuestGuru. Under Objectives there are options to set when to track quests. QuestGuru does not duplicate these settings in its own options as it could become problematic and it is not necessary to duplicate options already available.



Q. Where can I find a version compatible with WoW patch x?
  • A. QuestGuru is supported for the current Expansion and Patch level running on the live servers. PTR versions may be supported as Alpha or Beta releases, but I offer no guarantee.
QuestGuru ChangeLog
===================

Version 2.3.02-60000
-------------
Found corruption in zip file, fixed and uploaded tested and working copy

Version 2.3.01-60000
-------------
Massive rework of the QuestGuru code. Right now the tracker is not working :(

Version 2.2.18-50400
-------------
QuestGuru
(no changes)
QuestGuru_Tracker
* Normalizing the version numbers between QuestGuru & QuestGuru_Tracker to the same value. This will be the main change log henceforth.
* fix Achievement to ignore update events that happen during portals (between leaving and entering world events)
The update event would fire, but Blizzard was reporting no achievements during that time so the QGT would
"UnTrack" the Achievements and so there would be none when the display tried to update (and therefore currLine was zero and j was nil)
* Look at the oldChangeLog in QuestGuru_Tracker for older updates to the tracker

Version 2.2.17-50400 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Changing the Version number so Curse will see that it's different

Version 1.5.16-50400 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* fix QGT_Achievement.lua to handle Blizzard not returning an integer value on the slider

Version 2.2.16-50400 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Removed a bit of diagnostic code accidently left in.

Version 2.2.15-50400 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Change logic around QuestLog_OnShow to use secure hook functions to resolve
a taint issue introduced by patch 5.4.1 (Shame on you Blizzard).

Version 2.2.14-50400 (QuestGuru)
Version 1.5.15-50400 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* TOC change for patch 5.4

Version 2.2.14-50300 (QuestGuru)
Version 1.5.15-50300 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* TOC change for patch 5.3
* Fixed a problem in QGT_Achievements that caused the Tracker to fail (Tracker)
* Big thanks to CMTitan who provided code to handle Scenarios that came out with MoP (Tracker)

Version 2.2.13-50001 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Added a new sound option to announce (Thank you Drizt)
* Added a snippet of code to fix a rare QuestLog layout problem. Drizt ran into this again in MoP & kindly shared his fix for the issue.
* Fixed a few more places where party handling was changed in MoP/Patch 5.0.4.
* Changed the Debug message for the objectives not returning data to be sensitive to the debug setting.

Version 1.5.14-50001 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* Fixed another place where party handling was changed in MoP/Patch 5.0.4.

Version 2.2.12-50001 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Blizzard API GetQuestLogLeaderBoard is failing to return information for the identified objective & quest on some quests.
I changed the code to look for no information return and simply bypass processing for that objective after dumping some info into the chatlog.
I've added a slashcommand to invoke the routine at will: "/qg testui1"
For me, it's failing on "Shadow Wardens" and perhaps that's because the world tree marks are currency, not "items".
If the quest is an event quest (get 150 marks) then the type of quest should be event and the numObjectives should be zero.

Version 2.2.11-50001 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Error being reported by some @ line 410 of QuestGuru.lua. Added some diagnostic code when text == nil

Version 2.2.10-50001 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Removed some leftover diagnostic messages

Version 1.5.13-50001 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* Fixed a problem with the Achievement Tracking

Version 2.2.9-50001 (QuestGuru)
Version 1.5.12-50001 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* Both - Updated several items for compatability with Mists of Panderia (Patch 5.0.x)

Version 2.2.7-40300 (QuestGuru)
Version 1.5.10-40300 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* Latest revision of the Russian localization now incorporated. Thank you again StingerSoft!
* Removed some unused code. Frame "QG_QuestLogTitleMenu"
* Fixed the SetBindings problem that would cause all bindings to occassionally get lost.

Version 2.2.6-40300 (QuestGuru)
Version 1.5.9-40300 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* Made several localization changes. Enabled $substitution variables in announcer to be localized as well.
* Incorporated a brand new localization for Chinese(zhCN). Credit to Honooon with many thanks.
* Incorporated an updated localization for Russian(ruRU). Credit to StingerSoft with many thanks also.
* Updated all of the localizations (even the new ones) to synchronize variable names
* I based the updates upon the default (American) localization file.
* I removed variables that were no longer in the base localization file (most moved to the QuestGuru_Tracer localization)
* and added missing variables (in American)
* We now have localizations for German, French, Russian, and Chinese (zhCN & zhTW).
* I would really appreciate it if speakers of those languages sent me updates to them.
* There are some new variables in the localizations that need translation!

Version 2.2.5-40300
-------------
* The History button call to QuestCompletist has been fixed.

Version 2.2.4a-40300
-------------
* Refixed an issue in QuestGuru_Tracker\QGT_Quests.lua where SaveBindings sometimes received an invalid value because GetCurrentBindingSet() would return other than nil, 1, or 2.

Version 2.2.4-40300
-------------
* Fixed the TOC for 4.3 cata
* MrObrien has asked that somebody pickup and work on the QuestGuru so I will try and do some updates as I can't play without this mod.
Addon home is www.wowinterface.com and you can PM me there if you like. Gregity is the name.
I will be making small changes to get used to the codebase before I try anything like a major update.
* Fixed an issue in QuestGuru_Tracker/QGT_Quests.lua where SaveBindings sometimes received an invalid value because GetCurrentBindingSet() would return nil
* No other new information has been added (yet).

Cool The Cow is Dead

@Barjack, The error reported in the MoP Beta was actually a different error. There were two different reports for that one and I did get a fix out for that.

Regarding currencies, I think you are correct. In the case that I had (thankfully - makes it a lot easier to debug) the number of objectives reported was 1, but when you asked for the details, it returned nil on all parameters. If Blizzard is going to report an objective, then it should report something for the objective details. This is what was faulting. Prior to this patch, we did't have this problem - either Blizz reported no objectives or it returned something for the details.

@Wall, The 2.2.12 version of the addon still outputs error detail to the chat log, it just doesn't fail (rather it fails more gracefully).

@Aoife, you reported this because?? Did the LUA error report pop up? Or just letting me know that Druids of the Talon is also in the list of failing quests? If the former, please let me know. If the latter, just the Quest Title is probably sufficient.

@All, Since Aoife has the most complete message set, I'll use it for "how to read"

The first line of a set (of three): The Number of Quests in the quest log is 20. The number of **VISIBLE** elements in the questlog is 37. This elements number includes the header lines, but does not include any quests which are under a collapsed header. It may be larger or smaller than Number of Quests.

It is interesting to note because the collapsed quests are "invisible", when you collapse the header that contains the failing quest, the problem goes away. A side effect of this is if you are making progress on a collapsed (therefore hidden) quest, no announcement or sound gets made. The QuestGuru was originally written when there were no collapsed entries. The re-write I'm working on addresses that issue.

The next line. "Variable text is nil" that's what triggers the error message. Arg1 is the message text that came through the "UIINFOMESSAGE" event and is the reason the questlog is being examined. It is most likely **NOT** the faulting objective. It may not even be a progress message as the UIINFOMESSAGE event triggers for much more than progress messages. questID is the nth entry of NumEntries in the quest log. Header entries are filtered off before we get to the faulting part so you don't see them in this list. i is the current objective of the quest being examined. numObjectives is the total number of objectives and questLogTitleText is the quest being examined. If Blizz isn't going to return detail info for an objective, then Blizz needs to set the number of objectives to not count that objective.

Line three: Will always be nil, nil, nil because that's what you get back from GetQuestLogLeaderBoard for this problem. The variable "text" is the nil reported in the error message. If Blizz is going to count the "objective" in numObjectives then it should return something in the details, even if it's static info, but preferably how many of whatever it is that are being collected (such as Marks of the Worlkd Tree). After all, getting a Mark of the World Tree, is something that I'm collecting as an objective, even if it goes into the Currency category.

OK, this cow is dead. Blizzard may or may not fix this problem.

Re: Re: QuestGuru error: bad argument #1 to 'find' (string expected, got nil)

The same bug was happening in beta for the MoP quest to find a certain number of archeology fragments, called "Research Project: the Mogu Dynasties". So it seems like quests having a currency as an objective may be causing it. At the time I even checked Blizzard's own objective tracker and it simply listed no objective for that quest as well.

The bug was reported on the beta forums but there was no response/acknowledgement of it that I saw.

Re: QuestGuru error: bad argument #1 to 'find' (string expected, got nil)

Sadly, I must report that Blizzard is the blame for this problem. I've uploaded a new version that detects that the info is missing (that should be there as Blizzard says it should be there) and just skip processing the objective that is missing. If it happens to be the objective that you just completed, then the announce message and sounds won't trigger. But I can't help that as Blizzard isn't providing correct information.

I've placed some info into the chat log when this happens, and then I simply ignore the objective with the missing info. If that happens to be the quest you've just made progress on, then neither the announce message nor the progress sound will happen.

So far, I've seen it on Shadow Wardens and several have reported it on "Fun for the Little Ones".

At least it won't bomb any more when the information is missing.

QuestGuru error: bad argument #1 to 'find' (string expected, got nil)

If you are getting the error "bad argument #1 to 'find' (string expected, got nil)" message in QuestGuru.lua, please download the QuestGuru2.2.11-50001 version (or later). I've put some diagnostic code in the AddOn at that problem location and hopefully will capture some important info. The message will come out in the Chat Log so you'll have to copy it from there and paste it into the bug report.

Please, when reporting bugs, post them in the Bug Report for the AddOn. This keeps messages about a particular bug all together.

Thanks,

I did. Deleted everything: the addon and all .lua and .lua.bak files (including the .lua and .lua.bak files under each toon on each realm).

Re: Re: Re: Bug Reporting

Weighing in to this conversation a bit late but I've been having the same errors as ezarra. Going to try the fix and see if it works for me too.

cheers and thanks for all the work on the addon!

Awesome! Thanks for all of the effort. I just finished the SW cooking quest Confectioners' Sugar and had no issues so I was thinking oh-oh...

I just now saw your update so that's great.

The error location is in the middle of a routine that executes for every UI Info Message that shows up on your screen (such as entering a zone or killing a mob) and the missing parameter is derived from the ID of the quest in the line above. Not sure how that could have been missing, but clearly it was. Had to be some corruption as this area hasn't changed since I started working on this AddOn.

Anyway, glad you got it worked out.

Here is the entire error with my basic add ons. There are a couple of add ons that are out of date, technically, but they work (movable bags =hasn't been updated in ages, but has always worked, for example). Both the following errors are based on picking up pumpkins in today's cooking daily.

Code:

(they look identical)

I get the exact same error when I disable all add ons except for Quest Guru.

I installed the update from yesterday (remove the QG folders and moved the new ones in) and get exactly the same error. This is with no add ons installed except Quest Guru and Quest Guru Tracker. I am in Stormwind picking up pumpkins (and also fished up the Crystal Bass) and the errors pops every time I pick one up and the progress updates in the middle of the screen, However, I am not getting the error now when I turn in a quest, only when I progress. Not sure if that is a no-addon change or new add-on version change as yesterday I was getting the errors on both.

Thanks for taking the time to respond. Since this is a bug report, let's move this to a bug report please.

Since you are the only one reporting the error and you are getting it with every turn in, I'm thinking the problem must be in your addons someplace. If everyone was getting the same problem as you I'd be seeing hundreds of reports.

So, let's tackle this from that perspective first. Forgive me if I explain in too much detail. I'm also writing this with an eye to others who may not be addon authors.

Are you running out of date addons? If so that is likely the problem as there are a bunch of changes at the code level with this patch. If you have this on, turn it off and try again. To turn this off, logout of your toon, click the AddOns button on the lower left and make sure that the Checkbox next to "Load out of date AddIns" is unchecked.

If you have out of date addons off and you still get the problem, then refresh the QuestGuru code. Entirely delete the entire QuestGuru and QuestGuru_Tracker directories from your Addons directory, then install a fresh copy, then restart (logout is insufficient) the game. If you still get the problem, try the next step.

Find which, if any, addons are conflicting with QuestGuru. First turn off all of your other addons and try it again. The best way I've found to do this is via an AddOn called "Addon Control Panel". This particular addon doesn't have the .TOC changed for this patch, but if you change it yourself, it works. Click the ReloadUI button after every change. Otherwise you can use the Addon button described above. Click Disable All, then check QuestGuru & QuestGuru_Tracker, click ok and then login and try again.
If the problem went away, then the problem is with an addon that you were running. Enable addons one at a time until the problem crops up again. When you know what addon it is that causes the problem let me and the other addon author know.

If it still happens after doing the above, please let me know in a bug report. I'll work with you to get it figured out.

What information do I want? For starters, two things.

1) The contents of the "LUA Error" pop up that should appear if there was an error such as you described Copy (Ctrl-C) the contents and paste it into a CODE (#) block into the bug report. The single message, while helpful, doesn't give me any context or other information that helps determine the problem. If you don't get the "LUA Error" pop up, make sure you haven't turned that off. That is found under interface, Help panel and make sure "Display Lua Errors" is checked. Some folks use the BugSack addon, but I don't know much about it myself.

2) Exactly what you did that caused the problem. In this case you mentioned quest turn ins. OK, exactly when? There are up to three panels that appear on a quest turn in. What was the last button you clicked that caused the error? "Complete Quest"? "Continue"? Or was it a "?" on a panel that you clicked that precipitated the error? In general, what you did leading up to the problem and the last action (or 2 or 3) that caused the error to appear in as much detail as you can supply.

Could you disable your other addons, try it again, and if it still fails, please include the lua error panel contents and submit that in a Bug Report?

Thanks,
