QuestGuru  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.3.12
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.
**New**
SOUND OPTIONS:
Default sound set is now the old QuestGuru set (as requested by many)
/qgs set <soundsetname>
Sets the sound set and plays its quest completion sound
/qgs set
Lists the known sound set names
/qgs test <quest or objective or part>
Plays the current 'quest', 'objective' or 'part' completion sound
/qgs message <objectives or completion or none>
Sets verbosity of message in the chat log to 'objectives', 'completion' or 'none'
(corrected text from messages to message for the command /qgs message )




QuestGuru ChangeLog
===================

Version 2.3.12
---------------
TOC update to 60200

Version 2.3.11
---------------
Defult sound set is the original QuestGuru set from the past. /QGS for changes

Version 2.3.10
---------------
Fixed some spelling errors and got header collapse working again. Update TOC for 6.1

Version 2.3.09
---------------
Sound configuration added. /QGS and /QGS SET - for options

Version 2.3.08
---------------
Finally got the sounds working. Horde has peon sounds and ally has peasant sounds. Objective progress, objective complete and quest complete.

Version 2.3.07b
---------------
Brought things back to pre-2.3.07, except for the additions of tracker files, but those are disabled until I get them re-worked.

Version 2.3.07a
-------------
Made some revisions.

Version 2.3.07
-------------
Some fixes, some additions. Working hard on tracker part

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

Love the addon, been my favourite for years now. One feature I really miss from before is that sound plays even when you've turned off WoW sound. I play without sound 90% of the time due to all the CLASHKLINGKLANG sounds you get in combat as a Warrior.
I saw that the newer versions of DBM managed to get their sounds to play with ctrl-s off. Could you consider looking into it? :-]

With kind regards,
Mt

Hi, I love Questguru, but I was wondering is there any possibility of adding the ability to ctrl+click on a quest in the tracker and sending the coordinates to tomtom? This imho would make QuestGuru complete. It's a phenomenal addon otherwise and does exactly what I need.

Thanks so much for all your hard work,

Angel

I have used Questguru for years and REALLY like it.

I just downloaded the current versions of LIghtheaded (r331), TomTom(1.2.0), and QuestGuru (2.2.3) hoping to fix this annoyance.

Is there a way to get some visual indication on the quest guru quest tracker that this is a "self turn in" type of quest. my ideas inclue text flashing, yellow question mark (beside the quest, where things to use on quests show, even if it didnt turn in the quest, just opened the quest log where you then click complete quest)

Editted - because the other annoying behavior is from WoW-Pro not Questguru

Re: Default Quest Log

It looks like you found the issue, but FYI (and for anyone experiencing something similar), if you are using the latest version of QuestGuru, it is no longer a quest log replacement, because that was causing taint, it is now a quest log enhancer, so the default quest log and the QuestGuru quest log are actually the same thing and it would not be possible for them to show up as two separate windows.

Originally posted by r1pt1de
I saw someone mention this a page or two back but never saw a response. For some reason from time to time the default quest log is popping up under the quest guru log, showing both at the same time. This normally happens when looting a quest item, or killing a quest mob. No error messages are popping up at all. Any clues?

**EDIT** This seems to be being caused by one of my other addons, as it does it to carbonite also. And if I disable that specific addon, i dont have the issue any more.

Re: Wowui?

Yeah, that site always has problems, which is sad because it used to be my favorite site for addons, as far as functionality of the site. Whenever I update QuestGuru, I will always upload it to WoWUI, WoWInterface, and Curse. If WoWUI continues to have such issues, I might remove it from their site.

Anyway, I was just curious if the addon would be updated regularly here when there is an update. Again, most of the addons I use are hosted here, so it just makes it easier for me.

Love the addon, one of my must-haves!

Re: Re: New PopUp Quest Window Action

Make sure you are using the latest version of QuestGuru and its tracker. A lot of these new quests just automatically get accepted, and QuestGuru has never blocked that. With the latest version, the quest entry in the tracker will flash when the quest is complete and ready to turn in, just click it to get the quest complete window. You can also just open the tracker options and uncheck the option to hide the Blizzard tracker, no need to disable addons and reload the UI.

I am really hoping that the creator of this addon will bring atleast a small fix to that because there are definitely NO viable replacements at this time. There are similar addons but they all lack something, some are buggy and others lack the configurations this addon has.

I have to disable the tracker, reload the UI, click the popup, then reverse to go back to the tracker.

Am *I* doing something wrong? Is this working for others? If not, is it fixable?

Thank you for your volunteer efforts. I am grateful.

Quest Announcements

(Apologies if this has already been mentioned)

In recent builds of QG all toons share the same Quest Announcement messages. Previously, each character could have their own custom message. Any chance of reinstating this?

Also, "Announce when you accept a new Quest" hasn't worked since 4.0.3, (I think because the QUEST_ACCEPTED event has been deprecated). I kind of miss it. You can probably still spot new quests by scanning the list for changes when a QUEST_LOG_UPDATE event fires, I'm guessing.

Cheers, and thanks for the AddOn, speedwaystar

I see very similar behaviour - namely, zoning into instances, the tracker starts soaking up memory extremely rapidly, forcing so frequent GCs that it's getting laggy.

Originally posted by festin
Everytime I switch zone or change area I get questguru taking all of a sudden 30% of resources which results in lots of stuttering. Sometimes this stuttering remains till /reloadui. Of course using last QG - 2.2.3.

Also whenever i open up questlog by clicking on a quest title - always first time my quest log lands in left top corner of screen no matter where i put it before. Usually next opening of quest or openning it by pressing "L" makes it to normal behaviour.

And one last thing - when I have marked any achievements for tracking but I switch to quests in tracker after relog I got tracker set to achievements. Quite annoying ;P

Anyway thanks for keeping the favourite quest addon up and running ! And Merry Christmas.

hm, since version 2.x the tracker has some strange behaviour. usually i place the tracker at the lower left corner of the screen. when i switch between quests and achievements, or use the "pin tracker" or "click through tracker" function, the tracker jumps to the upper right corner, right under the minimap... oO
some days i found a conclusion for me, haha... i manually set the position values in the QGT.lua in the char-specific savedvariables folder. had no effect in the beginning, then it worked suddenly for some days.
today switched from av to quests... it jumped again. :S installed only the tracker from v1.5.1, then it worked... aargh. it makes me mad^^

you know your code... pls pls fix it. the tracker is nearly the only thing, why i use QG since its release... thx :-*

bartender4 is the only other thing.

but i just got the message again. and it was still the quest guru tracker. but it also had Auctionator listed.
