QuestGuru  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.3.06
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 2.3.06
-------------

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

I use QuestGuru on all my characters and play quite often and don't get any errors when talking to NPCs. What errors are you getting? And are you using any other quest addons that could be conflicting with QuestGuru's ability to do it's job?

It's actually not possible to drag the tracker off screen, though I suppose some other addon could set its position to be off screen, but most likely you either have it behind some other stuff on your screen or you hit Shift-L, which toggles showing and hiding it. Or if you are not tracking anything it will automatically hide itself. There is currently no option to reset its position.

Re: About Addon Traffic

I have tried to limit how much traffic is caused, but for some features, a lot of traffic is necessary, especially when someone logs on. If the traffic is getting to be too much, or causing lag for you, there is an option to disable it.

If QuGu collects this information to get a view of who has what quests in guild and party, wouldn't it be better to simply poll for this information when the user requests it instead of broadcasting it at given events?

Thanks :P
You can go into QuestGuruOptions.lua file near the top where
the QuestGuru_Sounds table is defined and add these
after the existing sounds (between the curly braces).
Code:
"Sound\\Creature\\Peasant\\PeasantWhat3.wav", "Sound\\Creature\\Peon\\PeonYes3.wav", "Sound\\Creature\\Peon\\PeonWhat4.wav"
Those are "More Work?", "Work, work", "Something need doing?".

"Job's done" is not in the gamefiles, it would have to be an external sound packaged with the addon.

Just to say, I think this is the best all-in-one quest mod I've found, and I think I've now tried them all, but none of them come close to this one ..... however ....

I just have to say that I've been a huge fan of QuestGuru for a long time now; it's exactly what I would've made ... if I was any good at addons.

May I suggest a minor addition, if you get any time? (At least, I think it's fairly minor) I would appreciate an option to hide quest item icons for quests that I've completed. I have the tracker hide completed objectives, and so once I'm done with a quest, the quest item associated with some quests then overlap with the quest item for other quests.

Good luck in school, I'm dealing with that atm, too.

"Fix" for LightHeaded frame not ligning up properly with QuestGuru.

Go into QuestGuru.lua at line 973.
Directly below where it adjusts for LH "closed" position paste this
Code:
elseif ((LightHeaded.db.profile.open == true) and (LightHeaded.db.profile.lhopen == false)) then
	LightHeadedFrame:SetPoint("LEFT", QuestLogFrame, "RIGHT", -50, 0)

There seem to be issues with QuestGuru 1.2 when used with some other addons that will cause the last quest in the log to be selected. For the next version I am going to simplify QuestGuru a bit and remove the Dailies tab. It seems other addons take care of daily quest tracking much better than what I was working on, so I'll leave it to them. With work and school I just don't have the time to make this addon more complex and keep up with changes that Blizzard makes.

QuestGuru and its sounds

Hi all =)

MrOBrian, I would have question or maybe even request to you. I have installed your AddOn mainly because of having opportunity to hear sound when I progress with quest or when I finish quests. For some reason it helps me a lot.
The main part of that Addon is not much important for me. I am happy with original Blizzard's Quest Log etc.

Would it be possible to break this addon into some kind of modules so that I would be able to switch off the QuestLog part and have only announcements and sounds?


PS. I have asked the same question in Curse.com but there's no answer yet :P

Sound and Tracker Problem

Hi for some stupid reason when I actavate the Custom Sounds for quest tracking Millhouse Manastorm replaces the exploration sound! Is that supposed to happen if so how do I disable that feature? Also the Tracker doesn't ever work I've been forced to use Inquest witch doesn't allow me to open Quest Guru on a click so... I like your addon witch is why I deal with it I hope you can fix the tracker.

I'm not able to use version 1.2 at all. The problem I'm having is that QG stays "stuck" on the last quest in the log, I'm unable to view any other quests (I click other quests and nothing happens). This does not happen only when trying to share or abandon a quest, it's constant.

I'm not getting any error messages with 1.2, but do get some with 1.1 (version 1.1 is still functional for me).

I do not use Titan Quests but do use Lightheaded.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE: PROBLEM SOLVED

Removed DailiesQuestTracker and QG, version 1.2, works perfectly.

DQT is out of date, which I'll guess may be the problem?

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

2ND UPDATE:

I've gone back to QuestGuru version 1.1, there are no issues with this version and DailiesQuestTracker.
