QuestGuru  Updated Today!  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

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

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.

@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.

Maho, I'm sorry, mind reading is not a specialty of mine. Lack of useable information means I can't help you. Look at it from my perspective. If the AddOn was failing for me, I'd have fixed it already. If there is no mention in a Bug Report or in these messages, it's a good bet that I don't know about nor have I experienced the problem. That means I need to know answers to the who, what, when, where type questions and need a bug report with useable information.

When reporting a Bug, please do the following:

1) Read. - That means look at the below messages (particularly the recent ones) and go look at the Bug Reports. Look for anything that might apply.

If you find something, follow any directions supplied.

If you don't find something do the following:
2a) Clean re-install with the latest version. Most times this takes care of the problem
2b) Turn off all other addons and see if it still happens.

I describe this process in detail below.

If that doesn't do the trick, then
3a) Open a bug report
3b) Include the error messages. all of it, not just the first line please.
3c) Give me what you were doing
3d) Give me the version of the addon you are using
3e) Give me what you were doing at the time the problem happened and any steps it takes to cause the problem to happen.
3f) Any steps you had tried to isolate the error before you posted the bug report.

I'm happy to help but you have to help me help you.

Ok.
1. It is the latest version of addon (2.2.12-50001).
2. It was clean install at first place because i never used this addon before.
3. Disabled all other addons, so only QG is active.
4. Going to addon's option, left-click on QG Announce.
5. Fatal error pew!
6. Text from the error:

Hello,

I am getting this.

Error: numEntries=24, numQuests=14
Error: Variable text is nil. arg1=Gigantic Catfish: 4/5, questID=6, i=1, numObjectives=1, questLogTitleText=Druids of the Talon
Error: text=nil, type=nil, finished=nil
Error: numEntires=24, numQuests=14
Error: Variable text is nil. arg1=Gigantic Catfish: 4/5, questID=6, i=1, numObjectives=1, questLogTitleText=The Shadow Wardens
Error: text=nil, type=nil, finished=nil

In the yellow text. This only happens on my hunter but I am thinking that this isn't class specific. I believe it has to do with the quests I have in my log.

Thanks

Thumbs up LUA error did NOT pop up

I just reported it as an FYI - sorry I wasn't clear on why I posted it. The LUA error did NOT pop up.

Thanks for your efforts with this - it's working pretty nicely now even with the Blizz crap unfixed. Maybe they'll hotfix it tomorrow with the restarts.

Cool The Cow is Dead

@Barjack, The error reported in the MoP Beta was actually a different error. There were two different reports for that one and I did get a fix out for that.

Regarding currencies, I think you are correct. In the case that I had (thankfully - makes it a lot easier to debug) the number of objectives reported was 1, but when you asked for the details, it returned nil on all parameters. If Blizzard is going to report an objective, then it should report something for the objective details. This is what was faulting. Prior to this patch, we did't have this problem - either Blizz reported no objectives or it returned something for the details.

@Wall, The 2.2.12 version of the addon still outputs error detail to the chat log, it just doesn't fail (rather it fails more gracefully).

@Aoife, you reported this because?? Did the LUA error report pop up? Or just letting me know that Druids of the Talon is also in the list of failing quests? If the former, please let me know. If the latter, just the Quest Title is probably sufficient.

@All, Since Aoife has the most complete message set, I'll use it for "how to read"

The first line of a set (of three): The Number of Quests in the quest log is 20. The number of **VISIBLE** elements in the questlog is 37. This elements number includes the header lines, but does not include any quests which are under a collapsed header. It may be larger or smaller than Number of Quests.

It is interesting to note because the collapsed quests are "invisible", when you collapse the header that contains the failing quest, the problem goes away. A side effect of this is if you are making progress on a collapsed (therefore hidden) quest, no announcement or sound gets made. The QuestGuru was originally written when there were no collapsed entries. The re-write I'm working on addresses that issue.

The next line. "Variable text is nil" that's what triggers the error message. Arg1 is the message text that came through the "UIINFOMESSAGE" event and is the reason the questlog is being examined. It is most likely **NOT** the faulting objective. It may not even be a progress message as the UIINFOMESSAGE event triggers for much more than progress messages. questID is the nth entry of NumEntries in the quest log. Header entries are filtered off before we get to the faulting part so you don't see them in this list. i is the current objective of the quest being examined. numObjectives is the total number of objectives and questLogTitleText is the quest being examined. If Blizz isn't going to return detail info for an objective, then Blizz needs to set the number of objectives to not count that objective.

Line three: Will always be nil, nil, nil because that's what you get back from GetQuestLogLeaderBoard for this problem. The variable "text" is the nil reported in the error message. If Blizz is going to count the "objective" in numObjectives then it should return something in the details, even if it's static info, but preferably how many of whatever it is that are being collected (such as Marks of the Worlkd Tree). After all, getting a Mark of the World Tree, is something that I'm collecting as an objective, even if it goes into the Currency category.

OK, this cow is dead. Blizzard may or may not fix this problem.
