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).

* The quest log frame will now remember where it was when moved

Version 2.2.2
-------------

I have checked this again. Removed all Addons and installed only QuestGuru and QuestGuru_Tracker. Opened Questlog two times, opened Map two times and got the taint warning from QuestGuru_Tracker Addon.

I see that you does not use the WorldMapFrame directly but I guess the WorldMapFrame does use the original Blizzard QuestLog frame code and your QuestLog frame fix does not work for the reused parts in the WorldMapFrame.

Cant really help with the achievement tracker as i know nothing about lua but this is the error i get when using portals, hearthstones etc. This is only having Questguru installed & no other addons.
Once this happens i have to log off & back on to get it working again as the tracked achievements are just totally stuck. They do not update with progress & i cannot click them or do anything, however, the rest of Questguru (log etc) still work fine after the error.

There are a few good ideas about a way to accomplish what Blizzard seemed to want without breaking everything. Grab the value into a variable and use that variable in the MicroButtons code seeming like the easiest and best. And removing unused calls for unused features is always an excellent idea.

Did whoever even test this with the popular AddOns? I mean, Titan Panel is not exactly a rarely used AddOn.

I find it odd that on the forums that nobody mentioned switching to securehook functions as a solution to the taint issue. That won't work for everybody (and shouldn't be necessary anyway) but it did work for me.

WorldMap ?? not me...

QuestGuru doesn't use WorldMap and hasn't for a long time. Some of the Original code from Mr. Obrien has some WorldMap references, but those have been removed from the AddOn for a couple of years now.

Just to make sure, I did a content search on "WorldMap" and came up with zip except some old svn references from years ago.

The error you mention is probably not from a current version of QuestGuru.

Please delete the entire QuestGuru and QuestGuru-Tracker folders from your AddOns folder and reload a new copy. If you still get the error, please remove all other addons, restart WoW and see if you still get it.

The mod that you used below is a global mod and will affect all AddOns, not just the one you placed it in so it may be hiding a taint from some other AddOn.

I tested the new version. The QuestLog_OnShow and QuestLog_OnHide functions looking fine.

The WorldMapFrame still get the taint on WorldMapFrame_OnShow, if you display Quest locations and Quest text in the Map frame. I don't use an Map addon. I was able to reproduce this by opening/closing the Map two times, than the Quest Log two times and again the Map. Now you should get the taint warning each time when you open the Map.

I fix this with ...

setfenv(WorldMapFrame_OnShow, setmetatable({UpdateMicroButtons=function() end }, { __index = _G}))

... on Line #34 currently. The other two hacks from my last posting are no longer nessesary with the new version.

I'd help with the testing but I don't do scenarios at the moment. (Not a single level 90...too much time on Titan Panel.) I will install the update and see what happens. I'll also look at what Shareel posted as well. If I see anything strange, I'll post it in here.

Scenarios, etc, etc

The problem with any updates to really clean up the Scenario situation is still waiting until I'm not so buried and have some more free time to do extensive coding (and more extensive testing).

I do feel the pain and I (hate to admit) just disable the tracker when I do a scenario.

QuestLog_OnShow (& OnHide) taint fixed

Howdy all,
Thanks for the news about the taints and some ideas.

I ended up solving the problem another way. The problem is as stated and **SHAME ON BLIZZARD** for breaking nearly every addon that hooks an OnShow. Because I'm simply extracting information, I was able to use frame:HookScript to extract (OnHide) and use (OnShow) the information and bypass tainting the functions.

A new download is available here and on Curse.

@HonorGoG: Your fix does not work for me.

I come up with this solution after reading some postings in the official forums. I inserted...

setfenv(WorldMapFrame_OnShow, setmetatable({UpdateMicroButtons=function() end }, { __index = _G}))
setfenv(QuestLog_OnShow, setmetatable({ UpdateMicroButtons = function() end }, { __index = _G }))
setfenv(QuestLog_OnHide, setmetatable({ UpdateMicroButtons = function() end }, { __index = _G }))

...right at line 34 of QuestGuru.lua after...

QuestLogFrame:SetScript("OnDragStop", QuestLogFrame.StopMovingOrSizing)

IsDisabledByParentalControls Taint

As I've mentioned before, I love this addon. Blizzard changed some API functions for the 5.4.1 patch yesterday and besides blowing up a bunch of addons (including Titan Panel I might add), they appear to have modified the UpdateMicroButtons() call as well. This is something that the QuestLog_OnShow() uses which is part of the Blizzard FrameXML. To avoid this, I added the following to QuestGuru.lua at line #708 right before the QuestLog_OnShow() call. This will remove the error but is by no means a fix as the function is hooked to be blank now which is definitely not what Blizzard had in mind for a protected function.
C_StorePublic.IsDisabledByParentalControls = function () return false end
Enjoy.

Sound issue

I only use questguru log, currently i think the tracker is not working well with all new stuf from Blizz(like scenario, proving ground etc like wolfetx's comment)
For the quest log, everything seems to be fine except some sound doesnt work. Some work is like default sound from blizzard, which doesnt have .ogg.
I believe it's a common issue as sorha quest log sound doesnt work either. SilverDragon sound works, hope you can find a clue to deal with.
Been using questguru for 4 years, very appreciate your work, think your addon is one of the best. Good luck with real life stuff.
