QuestGuru  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.2.18-50400
by: Gregity, mrobrian
QuestGuru is a Quest Log enhancer.

Features include:
- Enhanced quest display in the log
- Built-in announcer with customizable messages
- Quest progress sounds
- Custom Tracker which can be used independantly of QuestGuru, or in conjunction for full functionality
- Localization ability. Submit yours!

**New & Updated Localizations
If you have a translation, please feel free to upload it on the Optional Files tab and send me a PM. Likewise if you have an update to one, please PM me.

F A Q
====================
Q. How do I post a Bug Report?
A. Go to www.wowinterface.com and search for QuestGuru. Go to the AddOn and on the right side there is a selection called "Bugs" click on that. You will need to be signed in to WoW Interface to create 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 2.2.18-50400
-------------
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).

Version 2.2.3
-------------

Version 2.2.2
-------------

Version 2.2.1

I've come to that conclusion already

I've been working on figuring out just exactly what is happening and why it is failing.

In the short of it, somebody may have Shift-L defined to something else and QuestGuru just stomps on it regardless. That seems wrong to me. I've already got a test in the latest iteration to ignore the Set if Shift-L is already used. If the Shift-L isn't used, then setting it doesn't seem to be a problem to me - if I can get it to not fail when I set it

Do you get the keybind failure that dana noted as well?

I would like to suggest completely removing the code to enforce a keybind in the tracker.

Any user that actually wants it can easily set it in the Keybinds menu.

On the other hand, any user that wants to use Shift-L for something else has to figure out how to prevent QuestGuru from overriding their setup. The workaround is to set the QuestGuru bind to something out of the way that you'll never hit accidentally - but there should really be no need for a workaround.

... or like me, comment that section of code out every time I download a new version

Sorry for the lack of clarification. I just replaced the one file. I left the rest of the files that were updated after that (I have the update from yesterday) intact. I did not post about it in the bug tracker yet. It seemed like such an odd, isolated incident that I hesitated to. If you'd like, I can also take time to do that. Thanks

Odd QuestGuru Tracker Issue

After 4.3, I started noticing a strange issue that I only last night narrowed down to QuestGuru. Specifically, it only occurs when I have QuestGuru Tracker enabled in the addons. Having just QuestGuru turned on doesn't cause the issue. Whenever I log into the game, on any character AFTER the FIRST character I log into that session, I am unable to move my character using the keyboard, or move the camera with the mouse. I cannot hit Enter to access the chatbox (I have to click on it manually). It's like I'm frozen in place. Doing a /reload makes the issue go away.

At first, I thought it was related to Auctioneer, and for a while I was just putting up with it. But last night I had to do a lot of logging in and out of various characters for Winter Veil stuff and it finally started getting on my nerves, so I started removing addons one by one to narrow it down. QuestGuru Tracker will make it happen both with other addons or when it's the only addon enabled. I updated to the latest version last night and the problem still occurred. I even completely removed the addon and reinstalled it, to no avail.

Edit: I noticed upon logging in that the reason I couldn't move or use the keyboard or mouse was because my keybindings weren't loading at all. Then I was looking at old updates for the addon, in the changelog, and I saw this: "* Fixed an issue in QGT_Quests.lua where SaveBindings sometimes received an invalid value because GetCurrentBindingSet() would return nil" - is it possible this issue is still occurring in some way?

Edit #2: I rolled back to the December 5th version of the QGT_Quests.lua file and while I do get an error message upon logging in, I'm able to move my character, the camera, and use all my other keybinds as normal.

Just to let you know, it may be a while before I do such a thing. I'm really green at this stuff.

EDIT: I grabbed the code for JasonQuest so I could look at it. The code is circa 2008.
I've lived without it since 2008 so just the fact that you'll look at it means I'll love you forever. I've tried random combinations of mods (Such as QuestAgent and Quecho) but they don't work as well as that one insanely old addon did.

Edit: request submitted!

Random Request since you've made my favorite quest tracker start working again:

Ability to have a second, movable frame that tracks Party member's quests

(Basically I really miss JasonQuest, too) http://www.wowinterface.com/download...asonQuest.html

Yeah, I'm getting those things fixed. Because I took over an existing project the admins here (all of whom have been great) have been switching stuff over so I can have full author access to the Addon.

Just got the portal today there are a few more things to get straight but looks like it's coming along.

I cannot stress enough how much the addon has meant to me over the years. If MrObrien should ever come back, I'll be happy to hand the reigns over as he really knows the code and I'm just a duffer.

It has if you enable your author portal.

Bug/Feature quests reports

Where would you like bug reports & feature requests to be filed?

I was thinking of using the Curse tracker, but you are using wowinterface for development, so I didn't know if you had a preference.

Thanks for taking over the mod!

Ok Murphy, leave off.

I've run the change I made for a month. No problem. I publish the change and bang! I get that same bug pop up in QuestGuru_Tracker\QGT_Quests.lua file in line 107. Apparently the GetCurrentBindingSet can return other than nil, 1 or 2 despite documentation that says only 1 or 2 can come back.

I redid that code test a couple of ways and came up with something that should work. If GetCurrentBindingSet() == 2, then set to 2, else set to 1.

I'll upload a new update here in a few moments.
