QuestGuru  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.3.12
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.
**New**
SOUND OPTIONS:
Default sound set is now the old QuestGuru set (as requested by many)
/qgs set <soundsetname>
Sets the sound set and plays its quest completion sound
/qgs set
Lists the known sound set names
/qgs test <quest or objective or part>
Plays the current 'quest', 'objective' or 'part' completion sound
/qgs message <objectives or completion or none>
Sets verbosity of message in the chat log to 'objectives', 'completion' or 'none'
(corrected text from messages to message for the command /qgs message )




QuestGuru ChangeLog
===================

Version 2.3.12
---------------
TOC update to 60200

Version 2.3.11
---------------
Defult sound set is the original QuestGuru set from the past. /QGS for changes

Version 2.3.10
---------------
Fixed some spelling errors and got header collapse working again. Update TOC for 6.1

Version 2.3.09
---------------
Sound configuration added. /QGS and /QGS SET - for options

Version 2.3.08
---------------
Finally got the sounds working. Horde has peon sounds and ally has peasant sounds. Objective progress, objective complete and quest complete.

Version 2.3.07b
---------------
Brought things back to pre-2.3.07, except for the additions of tracker files, but those are disabled until I get them re-worked.

Version 2.3.07a
-------------
Made some revisions.

Version 2.3.07
-------------
Some fixes, some additions. Working hard on tracker part

Version 2.3.06
-------------

Reports of problems came in.
Went thru with fine toothed comb and got them beggars outta here.

Version 2.3.04
-------------
Changed versioning numbers (got rid of -6000). Repaired some minor bugs, introduced QuestGuru's version number and player's name, level and class to title bar :) Added sound to collapsing and expanding quest zone / type headers.

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).

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
-------------

Version 2.2

preservation

Just a heads up that I uploaded a QuestGuru 2.0 I'd been maintaining privately,
and a slightly modified QuestGuru_Tracker v1.5.1 that works with QG2 and doesn't taint.

That was before seeing the last few comments and in particular
MrObrian saying he will try to bring it back from the dead himself.

Great news

If there's anything of use (especially regarding Tracker source of taint and workaround)
feel free to take what you need.

It's under Optional Files here

I will obviously take it down regardless, the moment we have a new official QuestGuru 2.x and/or tracker.

Good to see you're still working on fixes MrObrian.
One little thing that would be good to see is a changed position of the MobMap buttons. I've made a modification to the tracker to position the button inside the tracker rather than left of it where it is overlapping the questitem buttons.

I changed line 1134 in QGT_Quests.lua to the following:
if (IsAddOnLoaded("MobMap") and (mobmap_hide_questtracker_buttons == false))
then QGT_QuestWatchFrame:SetWidth(276);
else QGT_QuestWatchFrame:SetWidth(256);
end

and line 1169:
button:SetPoint("RIGHT","QGT_QuestWatchLine"..i,"RIGHT",24,0);

@ Maelynn re "on one alt I still have 2 Hallow's End achievements in my tracker"
When this happened to me, I had to go find some questguru luas and delete them. "reset"ing the addon fixed that for me. you'll have to re-click to track anything you actually /want/ to track, but that's how i was able to un-track completed achieves.

@ mrobrian re possibility of tracker not dying entirely: : D

2 points I'd like to make.. not sure if they'll be of any information, or if you have a method of overcoming them:

- earlier today I got a taint error from QG after I tried to dismount by right-clicking on the buff. After the error I was unable to dismount this way, and had to reclick the mount icon on my hotbar to get off.

- on one alt I still have 2 Hallow's End achievements in my tracker, which I have both completed (probably while logged in at another computer). I'm unable to remove those achievements from my tracker, as they no longer have a checkbox to untrack them in the achievement window.

(and yes, I did check if I had the latest version this time, just to be sure )

lonadar: taint issues should go away in the next version

Naem: I removed QuestGuru temporarily from Curse because of issues I was having with people who post on that site. When I'm ready to release the next version, I will put it up on Curse with comments disabled.

I picked up a quest at the Hero Board in Darnassus... I don't use the QG Tracker or History - I just like the quest log and announcements...

The more I look into what the actual problem is with the tracker the more I'm noticing that it has nothing to do with taint, but rather some missing functionality. I am working on adding that button that appears when completing some quests. I am also going to include an option in the next release to show or hide Blizzard's tracker so if the QuestGuru tracker doesn't support some functionality you can just show Blizzard's tracker and use it real quick rather than log off, disable my tracker, log back in, etc.

I'm hoping to get "QuestGuru 2.1 Beta 1" released soon, but it still has a few issues that need to be worked out first. And yes, it will include the tracker

I am also going to miss the quest tracker, to be honest it was the only thing I used from the addon. I've also noticed a fair amount of posts/questions elsewhere regarding replacements for the tracker as well.

That was the quest "Pirate Accuracy Increasing" from the Speedbarge in Thousand Needles.

Not really a taint issue, just something that's missing from the currently released version of QuestGuru. After extinguishing the fires, a button pops up in the default tracker which you have to click to complete it and get the next quest.

just wanted to post my support for at least the tracker portion of this mod. I know it's silly, but being able to customize the colors is very important to me. I've spent easily 3-4 hours in the last couple days testing other tracker addons, and they simply dont compre. they either dont have the options, arent user friendly, or out right buggy.

Life without quest guru is hard indeed.

So, with a few little tweaks, a new version of QuestGuru should be released soon.

Basically, she started questing in the new Thousand Needles (as Horde, if it makes a difference, shrug) and was doing a quest where she was tasked to put out 16 fires. Completion of this quest (pre disabling of QG and it's tracker) did nothing; we both assumed it was bugged. After a couple days of this, it dawned on me to have her disable QG and retry the quest; upon completion this time, the Blizz tracker had the "Click here to complete" thing, and she was able to move on.

Sad to hear that the tracker causes taint issues. Then there is no way to get it working the way it was.
Maybe someday Blizzard changes something so that it would be possible to replace that crappy tracker...
