6.0.2
QuestGuru  Updated this week!  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

Sounds like great, I can wait until if complete your re-write the tracker and make locale supports.

I don't want you do rush, at least it sounds we'll have a totally functional new QG, I can wait.

It is true there are no localization files for this yet as it was a complete re-write and I figured that most people would like to get a working quest log and not have to wait on that. As for the key bindings, they work just fine, just set it for "L" or whatever key you want. I had to take out the "default script" as it was buggy. As for the check boxes that were there before, they are done a different way now. To track a quest, chose the quest and hit the track button and a check will appear to the right of the quest. To un-track it, chose the quest and hit the track button again and the check will be gone. Still working out some bugs in QG (like right now the quest type/location button, red button with - in it, will not collapse when clicked. I tried it on live but last night when live was down and I need to test some things I tried it out on beta and saw it didn't work). I picked up authoring QG on 10/13 and have spent around 100 hours on it so far (yes, many 24-35 hour days in there). I will try to get the tracker converted over but for now even I am using Sorha Quest Log for my own WoW quest tracker (link for it on QG's front page). So just bear with me please.

As for Key-bind issue, not sure if it's a bug in the game or just QuestLog itself, but what worked for me was to create a new one for QG (SHIFT+L) instead of 1 key (L), but probably other combos will work.

Just thought to mention this in case someone still has issues ^_^


By the way, might be off topic here and if so just ignore, but can anyone recommend an addon like QuestHelperLite or TomTom, with the arrow pointing to Quests Objectives, apart from the one in mini-map? neither of the 2 I mention seem to work
Dugi Questing Essential. I'm using it with QG.
Thanks, I'll give it a try...

I know that the tracker/log system as well as things like integration with the map window etc... have changed bigtime with 6.0. I also have several other AddOns that interact with the quest log/tracker in some way, so I'd appreciate if you could please test all of QuestGuru's new features with the following...

Wholly/Grail - This is a complete quest database. Grail is the database itself of all the quests in the game more or less and functions as a library of sorts, while Wholly is the UI. It has its own window for browsing its database separate from the quest log etc.. I recently noticed it seems to be interacting with the quest list/tracker shown on the Map when open (ie mouse over a quest, the Wholly tooltip on the quest data will pop up), so I just wanted to ensure that it wouldnt' conflict with anything else. During 5.x, Wholly/Grail worked great alongside QuestGuru, so I hope it won't be any issue now.

PetTracker - This ultra-comprehensive pet mod has a lot of options, including the ability to append pets you don't have in a given area into the QuestTracker, similar to tracking an achievement. I remember how the 5.x QuestGuru Tracker tracked achievements as well, so perhaps the 6.x won't have any problem working with PetTracker either. During Pandaria, both mods coexisted happily.

Mapster - This map mod takes care of resizing, fog of war, and general usage core Map options. Played well with QuestGuru during 5.x so I hope it won't be an issue now either.

Dugi Questing Essential - This wide-ranging questing/leveling addon has a lot of features. While some of them were redundant (ie quest complete sounds etc...) compared with some of QuestGuru's own options, they did seem to work nicely together in 5.x..


All of these mods can be found on Curse and/or WoWInterface and are 6.x compliant. Thanks again for your hard work and I look forward to the full return of QuestGuru in all its splendor!

Wow, that's a lot to ask of Lazare. If you aren't interested in or able to test those addons yourself, I can offer that I'm using Lazare's most recent version of QG with Dugi, Mapster, and PetTracker and all seem to be working together.

Hope that's helpful in the process....

Oh I fully intend to test them myself and if any problems show up to report and/or fix what I can, yet I know that my understanding of the API since 6.x is lacking for dealing with something as comprehensive as QuestGuru, especially if there's a lot of new Quest-related features in 6.x that will need to be replicated in function. While in the past, many mods coexisted harmoniously with QuestGuru I found, I picked just a handful of popular mods that I thought that, if they work without any trouble, should cover many others.

I'm very glad to hear that from your latest experiment they're all working well and hope they continue to do so ,especially when the QuestGuru tracker arrives.

Talking Fantastic job

I just wanted to say that you have done a fantastic job getting the quest log back, and that I'm hoping the tracker won't be far behind.

I don't know what I'd do without this excellent addon!

PS: As mentioned before, the quest log keybind is not working (neither the Questguru binding nor the Quest pane binding)
