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

Unhappy Grizzly Hills Tracker bug

Hello ,

not sure if this is an QG bug or Blizzard one , even if i already submitted an ingame bug report to Blizz ...... ,

but everytime i Quest in Grizzly Hills when i get a Progression or Completion for my Quest(s) all of them are being Hidden and untracked from the Quest log and Tracker ( only Grizzly other zone's are fine ) , to see them i have to manually track them again ..... , and again goes away when progressing / complete ......

i think you can imagine this is very annoying and i guess i would like to know if i'm the only one or something else might be the cause , using the latest Release version .

Keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn't break something else.

That is good to hear. I tried to turn the current taint issue into a drinking game, but it was too much...I just couldn't keep up.

This is the Blizzard Bug. If you have a bug-grabber / swatter type error catcher you can see more information. As reported below, random AddOns will be blamed for a taint. And it just isn't true. Please read below for my grousings and follow the links for more information.

If you feel this is a different bug, please post an error log from a bug-grabber / swatter AddOn. Make sure you have LUA errors showing (Interface options, help section).

It works, it works!

Not had much time to test as i'm off to work but looks like you've cracked it Gregity.
Quickly tried 5 or 6 portals & i got no errors show up & everything stayed tracked & worked fine after using them.

Many thanks for your patience tracking (no pun intended) this down, been driving me nuts.

Reeb, Have I got a deal for you!

I think I got it fixed.

I was actually getting the error, but it was being suppressed. After I fixed the last tracker error, I noted that my Tracked Achievements all disappeared - no longer checked at all.

Bless my poor lil mage who ported back and forth all night while I hunted for the problem. And, Lo! Behold!, In the same area you were getting an error, I was getting stuck.

Anyway, the problem was that Blizz was returning no achievement information despite calling the update routine so the Tracker dutifully untracked everything to match what Blizz reported.

I taught the AddOn to be not quite so believing and told it to ignore Blizz between the Player Leaving World and Player Entering World events.

It fixed my problem and my bet is that it fixes yours as well.

Please let me know

Tracker issue still

Just got the latest version but alas i still get the error 100% of the time using a portal. Tried multiple portals but got the error again & again. I think its the same error but i'll post it again in case its different.
Could my actual game client cause this as i could always do a fresh reinstall. I also play EU, could it be region related? Just seems odd i get it 100% of the time but most people dont seems to have any problems.

QGT_Achievement has a fix in!

I found a problem in the QGT_Achievement and was able to fix that problem. I hope it's the fix to the Achievement error that others have been reporting.

The problem I found is related to patch 5.4 and apparently Blizz is no longer treating the SetValueStep(1) as it did before. Since patch 5.4, GetValue from the slider will give a value not constrained by the value in SetValueStep (one in my case) and so fractional values will be returned.

This will cause untold havoc in the AddOn because the "j" variable is used to build the name of a global variable and it must be an integer, not something like 0.127485.

Anyway, I instituted my own rounding to round to an integer and the "j" value is now correct.

As I still don't get the error on login or in portal, I don't know if this is the same error. However the error reports indicate the same area and I can see how the problem could be the same root issue.

Keepin my fingers crossed.

Shouldn't be necessary anymore, as the most recent version on Curse has the missing file. But, to do this you would just download the .zip manually, instead of downloading through the curst client. Then, you open the zip file, find QuestGuru.lua, and copy into your WoW installation folder under the path above. Like I said, though, you shouldn't have to do this anymore.

One thing I noticed, though, is that the .toc for the last uploaded version still shows 2.2.16-50400, and not 2.2.16-50400b which is the current version on Curse. This may be causing the Curse client not to notice that there is an update...or it might not. On both my computer and on my wife's computer, the Curse client did not notice that there was an update after you re-uploaded, and I had to force an update. I thought maybe it was just because of the interim fix I applied on my own computer, but my wife never did that and had the same update behavior. My only guess was that the .toc showed the same version number, but who knows...could be something else.

I refreshed the upload just now. No changes, just all of the files are included.

Sorry for all of the trouble I caused folks!

I uninstalled the entire addon and reinstalled it, but the sounds are still not there and the auto complete keeps resetting when I log onto the game. Am I missing something here?
