QuestGuru  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.2.18-50400
by: Gregity, mrobrian
QuestGuru is a Quest Log enhancer.

Features include:
- Enhanced quest display in the log
- Built-in announcer with customizable messages
- Quest progress sounds
- Custom Tracker which can be used independantly of QuestGuru, or in conjunction for full functionality
- Localization ability. Submit yours!

**New & Updated Localizations
If you have a translation, please feel free to upload it on the Optional Files tab and send me a PM. Likewise if you have an update to one, please PM me.

F A Q
====================
Q. How do I post a Bug Report?
A. Go to www.wowinterface.com and search for QuestGuru. Go to the AddOn and on the right side there is a selection called "Bugs" click on that. You will need to be signed in to WoW Interface to create 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 2.2.18-50400
-------------
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

FIXED!

Ok weird, but for some reason, not all files got copied over when I installed. So I deleted and reinstalled the addon which, I am happy to report, is now working again!

I LOVE Quest Guru and have used it since you created it

Thanks for this great addon!

Love,
Your fan, Szyarah

Are you seeing the addon in your addon list at char select?
The addon is both visible AND selected at char select. However, the addon is NOT showing up in-game, either functionally or in the list of addons accessed by pressing ESC.

Fires over Skettis

While doing this quest, when I click on the Skyguard Blasting Charges icon that is in the QuestGuru Tracker, I see the error below. If I click on the same icon in my bag or the icon in the QuestClicks bar, no error.

Code:
[ADDON_ACTION_FORBIDDEN] AddOn "QuestGuru_Tracker" tried to call the protected function "UseQuestLogSpecialItem()".
!BugGrabber-r188\BugGrabber.lua:587: in function <!BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:587>
<in C code>
FrameXML\WatchFrame.lua:1427: in function "WatchFrameItem_OnClick"
<string>:"*:OnClick":1: in function <string>:"*:OnClick":1

Locals:
nil
Thank you

Edit: the next time I logged on and tried this, it worked, and has worked just fine since.

Currency Crises

The latest update is out. It appears that the bug is limited to quests which have an objective which is a currency. Various places have these and you can look at the messages below to see.

If you had one of the "offending" quests in your log, you would get this error irregardless if you were doing that quest or not.

I had put in a work-around a patch ago and that stopped it from dying but left some additional diagnositcs to get the scale of the problem. With this patch I eliminated the diagnostic messages (now sensitive to an undocumented debug setting).

Drizt gave me several fixes for issues regarding the renaming of Party API calls and I updated the several places where those were. Drizt also gave me a "Job's Done" sound from WC3 so I included that as well. You can find it in the drop downs in QG Sounds options panel.

Really?? The quest you need to collapse is the one identified on questLogTitleText parameter.

I collapsed the whole firelands header and the debug message was still showing. By the way I personally think the idea of a debug option is a good idea, IDK maybe add it as a toggleable option?

I have a heavily modified custom UI, so I am willing to make code changes if they are needed and simple. So I try to read through the comments to see if it is a simple .lua change.

Re: Also getting the same error as last poster

@griffin224 - Thank you for at least reading the below.

@all - yes, I will be removing the chat message. The reason it was placed was to help get additional information that would help determine the size of the problem. I will be "turning it off" in the near future.

So far, it appears to be related to currency only which makes me less worried that supressing the objective is going to cause some other problem.

Also getting the same error as last poster

I am a long time user of Questguru and I absolutely love it and want to thank you for your efforts!

The following is an error that prints out in YELLOW text in chat frame.

[10:22:12] Error: Variable text is nil. arg1=Mark of the Champion: 1/4, questID=2, i=1, numObjectives=1, questLogTitleText=Additional Armaments
[10:22:12] Error: text=nil, type=nil, finished=nil
[10:22:12] Error: numEntries=16, numQuests=14
[10:22:12] Error: Variable text is nil. arg1=Mark of the Champion: 1/4, questID=3, i=1, numObjectives=1, questLogTitleText=Calling the Ancients
[10:22:12] Error: text=nil, type=nil, finished=nil

I only have the one quest (Calling the Ancients) in my quest log so it has to be associated with it. I have went so far as to do a fresh install (removing any trace of Questguru from WTF folder(s)) to try and alleviate it. Still the same error.

Looking forward to fix. Let me know if I can provide you with any further information to help possible corrective action.

Thumbs down Error in chat..

[13:39:47] Error: Variable text is nil. arg1=Mark of the Champion: 1/4, questID=2, i=1, numObjectives=1, questLogTitleText=Additional Armaments
[13:39:47] Error: text=nil, type=nil, finished=nil
[13:39:47] Error: numEntries=16, numQuests=14
[13:39:47] Error: Variable text is nil. arg1=Mark of the Champion: 1/4, questID=3, i=1, numObjectives=1, questLogTitleText=Calling the Ancients
[13:39:47] Error: text=nil, type=nil, finished=nil

OK, I get it, those quests that use "currency" are broken, but do I really need to see this EVERY time I do any sort of objective updating? Is there a way we can toggle the message please?

Re: Re: Re: Fatal error

Pew!

You are getting a program crash, not a LUA Error. This is a Blizzard bug, not an AddOn bug. Blizzard should never crash, even if an AddOn has a bug.

If you look at the stuff you posted, there is much that looks corrupt.

What realm are you on and what is it's native language?

Noting this from below:
Current Addon: (null)
Current Addon function: UNKNOWN
Current Addon object: (null)
Add Ons: QuestGuru QuestGuru_Tracker

This shows that the AddOn, while loaded, was not running at the time of the error.

That means that something is corrupt causing the error.

I take it from your comments that you are using the Blizzard Interface Options, going to the AddOns Tab and then left clicking the QG Announce on the left. And that's when the failure happens, correct?

You said it was a clean install as you had never had the addon before so the WTF saved files can't be the problem and the above shows that the AddOn wasn't running at the time of the crash.

The only thing I can suggest is a clean re-install of the game itself. Short of that perhaps finding out how to remove ALL user data (the entire WTF folder?) and any cached files.

I was in the QG Announce pages yesterday evening (@ work now so can't look right now) and had no issues.

Sorry I can't be more help.
