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

Version 2.1
-----------
* Removed the History, I recommend using Quest Completist
* Fixes for Cataclysm
* Special thanks to Dridzy and Cartman for their invaluable contributions

re: disappearing quest text, qg, and mapster... I use mapster on all my toons, but have turned off both halves of QG for the time being while I level my main (since I don't want to mess with the auto-accept/remote-turnin of quests). I have noticed the disappearing quest text if I bring up the map, and this is without having any part of QG enabled on that char, either the qlog half or the tracker half. So it seems to me that whatever is going on with disappearing quest text doesn't seem to be related to QG... or at least, I would think, not to the point where Mr Obrien can do anything about it.



also, I don't want this to sound demanding or anything because I know you're only still working on this whole thing out of the goodness of your heart, and I'm very very appreciative of that \o/, but I too would greatly enjoy a default-setting that remembered the stuff like 'sound on quest completion' and 'which parts of quest-completion announcing to do' and 'color in the tracker'. It's not a big deal right now, I know there are bigger fish to fry. Just saying, whenever you get that far, I would definitely put such an option to good use : D.


Thanks again for continuing to work on this. leveling on my main with default tracker is bleh. With this recent release, I'm gonna re-enable the tracker and report any funkiness. Thanks again \o/

There is a small gap there by design so the items don't shift when the scrollbar appears and so MobMap buttons don't overlap them. I am considering redesigning where those quest item icons go.

Everytime I switch zone or change area I get questguru taking all of a sudden 30% of resources which results in lots of stuttering. Sometimes this stuttering remains till /reloadui. Of course using last QG - 2.2.3.

Also whenever i open up questlog by clicking on a quest title - always first time my quest log lands in left top corner of screen no matter where i put it before. Usually next opening of quest or openning it by pressing "L" makes it to normal behaviour.

And one last thing - when I have marked any achievements for tracking but I switch to quests in tracker after relog I got tracker set to achievements. Quite annoying ;P

Anyway thanks for keeping the favourite quest addon up and running ! And Merry Christmas.

Feature Request: Tracker

Howdy mrobrian, thanks for continuing QG.

Whilst it wasn't working, I have gotten used to one function the default tracker has which I cannot seem to find in QG Tracker.

The numbers/question marks which appear on the left side of the quests which when clicked, take you straight to the map location.

Any chance of adding this function?

Many thanks.

Also, whenever deleting any files/folder such as Cache, WTF, etc., always make sure you are completely out of the game first. The game loads all that stuff into memory and then writes it when you exit, so deleting those files might have no effect if you do it with the game running. The same is true with updating addons; if you update an addon while the game is running and then just relog, you will most likely encounter errors because the game doesn't reload all of the files, just some of them.
I was having this strange issue where the Blizzard tracker was showing no matter what option in both default UI and QG were checked, or even if I used a different addon other than QG. Not only was the default tracker showing when it shouldn't have, it also had the little objective circles all over the screen, like the default tracker was being moved by several addons (which was highly possible), which would then cause QG to have a tracker that was minimized with 25/25 quests (I had 14/25) and no amount of clicking would make it maximize. The quest log would be blank on both sides, and I'd get this error about QG Tracker upon login.

Since I'm bad about cleaning out my folders when a patch comes (I know, I know) I figured that I needed to do it because obviously I had some conflicting settings. So I did the typical log out, delete the cache folder, moved my interface and wtf folders to a different location and then, for good measure, I rebooted my computer. I started WoW and I still had the tracker issue, with a clean interface/wtf/cache folder. Which was more than a little odd. So I logged out, went into the Interface folder again and on a whim, deleted the newly made BlizzardUI folders which were the only things in there. When I logged in again the tracker issue was gone. I moved just the addons I'm using to my folder again, and QG was still working fine. Even after adding my WTF folder back.

I didn't post the error because I'm sure it was an issue between the keyboard and chair, but I'm its probably still in my log if you would like to see it. And I sort of misposted; I wasn't in game when I deleted my settings as my original post stated, I learned the hard way on that loooong ago.

Thumbs up New Version

Just put up a new version. It fixes the weird scrolling issue and also makes the quest log remember where you put it if you move it.

Well, I knew I'd be making more changes, and I didn't want to inundate everyone with updates, so I held off for a day or two. I know the scrolling thing is annoying, so I think I'll release the next version now that fixes it.

1. QG used to be its own window, but is now just a modifier of Blizzard's quest log. For some reason Blizzard didn't make their quest log movable, so I added that feature, but they also wrote some weird code to set its position each time it opens... anyway, long story short, next version will remember where you moved it that session (it doesn't store it across sessions).

2. I have been considering the best way to add profiles for the options, and will likely work on that for an upcoming release.

That aside, I have two points I'd like to make a request about:

1 - QG used to be able to remember the position of the quest log and keep it there, so that I won't have to drag it to the centre of the screen every time.. it no longers does so and I miss it, can it be added again?

2 - I just cleaned up my WTF folder and had to configure all my addons again.. then I realised how tedious it is to have to set the tracker options for each of my alts separately - especially the objective colouring -, because those aren't saved to a default profile (unlike the rest of QG such as announcements). Could you please add a default profile to the tracker options, so that I can choose to only configure them once?

I *think* (though I could be wrong because I haven't looked that deeply into it) that the quest log and the map actually share a frame for displaying quest information, so it would make sense that if both the quest log and the map are open then one of them would not get that frame.

I do have the weird scrolling fixed, but it seems silly to release yet another update so soon for such a minor issue. If I don't end up making any other changes soon, I'll probably release it within the next couple of days. I'm trying to see if I can get those check marks to glitch and show up on the right of the title, but so far no go. The problem with being a developer is that everything seems to work great for me

Either it's an issue with windows that aren't supposed to be able being open simultaneous (since on default UI you can't have quest log and map open same time) or there's issues with other addons than QG. Although it might be different problem since mine goes away when I close and re-open the log.

I'm also getting the weird scrolling and I have nothing else that modifies quest log. The tick marks on the right appear only after the weird scrolling.

Normally these would be such minor hassles to me that I wouldn't bother with the effort of troubleshooting and posting, but since there's been so many obscure posts with no details I wanted to add some. Hope this helps. Let's not make this site like Curse please.

And thank you MrObrian for keeping it up to date!!

With the QuestGuru tracker, automatic quests are not "in your face" like they can be with Blizzard's tracker. Also, automatic quests are just that: automatic. QuestGuru doesn't do anything that would or could block such quests, it just might not necessarily include all the new stuff Blizzard added for them. All you have to do is click the "O" button on the tracker to open the options and uncheck the option to hide the Blizzard tracker if you suspect the default UI would do something different than QuestGuru.

in hijyal and gotten to the point where u get the 1st automatic quest i didnt get that and couldnt continue the whole map anymore because no chance to grab the quest manually and after a few more quest the quest line just stopped because of that missing escort quest.

I started having issues a couple of updates ago too, culminating in me finally deciding I had to fix it or kill something. I cleared out my cache, wtf, and interface folders to ensure that I was starting fresh. I was still getting an error and the tracker was all screwed up. Deleting all the BlizzardUI folders and then logging out and back in seemed to fix it. Dunno if that will work for anyone else.
