6.0.2
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).

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

Yes, that's a function of the History module, so you will find it on the History tab. Keep in mind that when Cataclysm hits, there will be major changes to the quests, so the built-in database that I ship with QuestGuru will be out of date until I'm able to acquire a new one.

haha you too huh? blizzards dumb glyph ui has actually been blaming DBM for taints to it in the "GetGlyph" function. like really? We go no where near that function, it's taining itself and just blaming an addon that's in memory. 4.0.1 is just a mess. have you turned framexml logging on yet? it's full of errors, all blizzards.

QuestGuru 1.5.1

New update! This should fix some of the errors people have been getting.

KNOWN ISSUES (please don't report):
TAINT: QuestGuru exposes a bug in Blizzard's code that makes the game blame QuestGuru for all sorts of stuff failing. Most notably vehicle GUI and glyph problems. Please don't report these errors, I'm working on a solution.
Edit: Forgot to mention that sorting the tracker by proximity is kinda buggy. It shouldn't give errors any more, but the quest list might be in a strange order.

Please only report new bugs after upgrading to 1.5.1, and don't report any taint issues. Keeping the bug reports down to just new stuff makes it faster and easier for me to figure out what needs to get fixed.

Fair enough. Thanks for the heads up.

It takes just as long to disable QG, glyph, and then re-enable QG.

You don't actually have to disable QuestGuru. It seems the Glyph system randomly complains about taint, but sometimes works just fine. I have received the error, logged out, logged in on another toon, didn't get the error, logged back to the first toon and didn't get the error, the whole time I was running QuestGuru and never disabled it.

Blizzard's code is really bad right now, a lot of people are complaining about it. I will do my best to work around their problems, but it's not always possible.

QuestGuru doesn't offer what you're asking for. For that check out QuestPointer and TomTom. These three addons together make leveling much easier.

My aim is to level a new mage with full heirlooms to 80 asap. I dont want to be running around wasting time, with quests I simply do not need to do. We all or rather most of us know, 2/3rds of the quests are lower lvl are just a royal pain. Most send you to the other side of the zone to level. This is an absolute waste of your time and your effort when you can spend time questing elsewhere more efficiently.

While blizz said they are supposed to be addressing this in 4.0.3, it doesn't help me right now. Does this help you to actually level more efficiently? or is it just a glorified wow internal quest tracker that just happens to have locs ?

sry ich hoffe es kann jemand übersetzen.

Der Fehler tritt auf wen der QUest kein Header besitzt. bei mir war es der Dungen "Bollwerk" hat auch im QuestLog kein Obertitel.
Habe dem Quest in der Datei "QuestGuru_History.lua" des Charakters mit einem Texteditor abgeämdert und kein Fehler mehr.

Original
{
["Count"] = 3,
["Link"] = "|cffffff00|Hquest:9575:62|h[Die Bollwerke schwächen]|h|r",
["Title"] = "Die Bollwerke schwächen",
["Level"] = 62,
["SuggestedGroup"] = 0,
["Tag"] = "Dungeon",
}, -- [492]
den Header eingefügt (1ste Zeile)
{
["Header"] = "Bollwerk",
["Count"] = 3,
["Link"] = "|cffffff00|Hquest:9575:62|h[Die Bollwerke schwächen]|h|r",
["Title"] = "Die Bollwerke schwächen",
["Level"] = 62,
["SuggestedGroup"] = 0,
["Tag"] = "Dungeon",
}, -- [492]

Edit: Weiterer Fehler wenn man unerkundetes Gebiet erkundet.
