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
-------------
* Fixes for when scrolling the quest log
* The quest log frame will now remember where it was when moved

Version 2.2.2
-------------
* Tracker achievement bug fixes and flashing for completed remote quests

Version 2.2.1
-------------
* Tracker bug fix that was causing game crashes

Version 2.2
-----------
* Added quest levels to NPC dialogs where possible
* Added "Sound\\Creature\\Peasant\\PeasantWhat3.wav" to the list of sound options

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

Version 2.0 Beta 2
------------------
* QuestGuru now modifies the quest log to add quest level and checkboxes for tracking quests (like previous versions of QuestGuru)

Version 2.0 Beta 1
------------------
* Incorporated History function, QuestGuru History is no longer a separate module
* QuestGuru is now a modification of the built-in quest log, rather than a replacement
* History is no longer stored on your computer but is retrieved from the server instead
* Removed some features that were causing problems and slimmed down the addon to reduce memory usage
* Upgraded to ChatThrottleLib v21

It happens all the time using any portals or hearthstones to anywhere.

I just got the latest version & i'm now getting 2 errors. (Sorry)

1 is the usual error posted further down below, the other is as follows.
Don't know if the 2 are related or might throw some light on it.

I get this new error as soon as i load the game in.
/script ReloadUI() & /Reload does not remove this error.

More on the Taint

On the Blizzard forums: (Of course, Bizzard hasn't said a blinking thing).

IsDisabledByParentalControls Taint:

As of 5.4.1 a call to the secure function C_StorePublic.IsDisabledByParentalControls() has been added to the UpdateMicroButtons() function. Because UpdateMicroButtons is called during the OnShow and OnHide events of over 30 frames, anything that touches those frames will cause taint errors. This includes adding addon options to the interface panel...

[BUG] 5.4.1.17538: IsDisabledByParentalControls() taint:

This means anything that touches (even reads, or hides or shows) any of those frames—including even an AddOn adding its options to the AddOns tab of the Interface options, an action explicitly supported by Blizzard!—could cause unpredictable, and essentially unavoidable, erratic taint errors in many popular AddOns ...

A few posts have gone on to say some rather unflattering things about Blizzard's actions....

Come-on Blizzard, fess up and put out a quick fix!

Achievement error

@Reeb, thanks for the details. Does this only occur when you portal to a specific place or to anyplace?

@All, anybody else getting this problem? Just looking for some sort of pattern.

Keep the feature list growing. I've long since had plans on addressing most of the issues and requests, but RL just comes first and right now, RL is a bit demanding on my time.

I too want much more action on the AddOn, but I don't get all of my wants either. Peace.

It doesn't help that Blizz just plasters a major bug in a minor patch and really hoses things up.

I'm innocent.... Honest....

OK, I just got this error again, and QuestGuru-Tracker wasn't even enabled.

Same error message as below, just listing a different AddOn.

Blizzard has really forked up something and this is seriously a Blizz bug.

Here's the latest error (I suppose there is a chance that Overachiever actually tainted something, but I doubt it):
Error occured in: AddOn: Overachiever
Message: Error: AddOn Overachiever attempted to call a forbidden function (IsDisabledByParentalControls()) from a tainted execution path.

Tracker

The /script ReloadUI() & /Reload both get the tracker working again so i'll use that from now on rather than log off/on. Any achievements that were tracked are no longer selected & i have to select them again but that was the same if i log off/on.
I can reproduce the error 100% of the time.
Heres a simple example for myself.

1) Delete all Questguru folders in the interface/addons folder & also all saved variables files in the saved variables folder & the character specific folders.
(If there is anything else that needs deleting that could cause a problem let me know)

2) Load in any character. Also doesnt matter if there are other addons running or not.

3) My character has loaded in & is at Summers Rest. I track an achievement, lets say 'Know Your Role'.
Again, doesnt matter if i track just the 1 achievement or 2,3,4 etc makes no difference.

4) I play Horde. I think i need to go to Orgrimmar. I got to the portal & click it.

5) Orgrimmar loads in & bingo there is the error & the tracker is frozen. (Although i did notice the Options button still works in the top right corner of the tracker but nothing else)

Question latest update

just wanted to mention that since the last update of QG , each time you open or close the Quest log you see in yellow text " OnShow " , " OnHide " in the Chat log , just a tad annoying

I'm being Framed...

Well, I had Shareel's error pop up and I captured the error and pasted below.

This one Framed QuestGuru_Tracker. Has anyone else got this reported against QuestGuru itself?

The trace-back on the error results does not list me, only the Message.

But I don't use any of the listed functions.

This doesn't make any sense to me. Does it make any sense to anyone?

I'm personally leaning to Bliz having forked this one up and if you happened to be in the area, you got blamed.

Achievement Tracker Error

Can you cause this error at will?

How many achieves are you tracking?

try "/script ReloadUI()" instead of having to logout and in. Case Sensitive, don't forget the () on the end. You might simply try /reload as sometimes other addon have that as a command. No guarantee on that one however.
