QuestGuru  Updated less than 3 days ago!  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

I never had issues with the autoquest feature throughout the Cataclysm zones, everything worked fine, as soon as the quest was complete I saw the questionmark in the tracker and could open the complete windows by clicking the quest.
Well, perhaps I'm a dimbulb, perhaps not. <

But I rejoiced to see to QG was back, and had the means to auto-complete quests, so I upgraded and reactivated it. I tested it in the Deadmines and killed the foreman, there was the "?" to click on. I did so, quest window pops up, I complete, win.

...but no follow-up quest for the carpenter.

I had to run back to Horatio to pick it up. Did so, killed the carpenter, clicked the "?", competed...

...no follow-up here either.

Out of curiosity, I retraced back to Horatio to see if he DID have another quest for me, and he did indeed.

So...is there some setting in QG I'm missing that preventing these auto-quests from chaining?

EDIT: Then again, someone please refresh my memory.

In Deadmines, does the next quest in the chain pop up immediately after completing the previous, or do I have to proceed further in after each boss to get them to appear?

If it's the latter, then I am TRULY a dimbulb and you can ignore my ramblings.

It does that, but the default behavior is a popup of some kind, maybe if there was a noise that accompanied it or something. I didn't even notice the ? in the quest log because the dungeon was so hectic and missed out on the last two steps.

I have QuestGuru 2.2.1 installed, it is the only mod I'm using that does anything with the quest log.

Remote quests do not seem to work properly, as in the quests you get when going through the deadmines.

Any ideas?

I also have this problem. Took me a little bit to find out what was causing it, but it's definitely QG. Could remove achievements without QG running, but when I only had QG running and nothing else, it went back to not letting me remove some achievements.

As an aside, it also doesn't let me readd some achievements (if I accidentally remove them and go to put them back, it won't let me check the box).

Now to go edit my SV file, because The Limnologist is taking up way too much space.

A agree, a more visible thing would be a great step forward. But I'm sure MrObrian will implement something better. The questionmark is only a quick fix I made to get the tracker working.

Originally posted by Cacheelma Add to that the various feature the official tracker has such as showing/hiding quests based on the zone you're in, sorting quests by difficulty/proximity/manual/etc, and quest numbering in conjunction with the quest guide on the map. I find them to be very useful.[/b]
Does the Blizzard tracker have all these features? I only used it for about 3 days after patch 4.0.3a until the QG tracker was working again as the Blizzard crap is not resizeable and moveable.
Hiding zones is just a mouseclick with QG so that's already there.
Sorting by difficulty is not that important as the colors and quest levels show that information.
For the proximity and numbering thing there's a Questhelper lite that combines the Blizzard quest helper features with the waypoint system of Questhelper.

I did this quest yesterday and it showed the questionmark correctly in the tracker. Every completeable quest I found so far behaved as it should.
Did you have the complete quest button in the log? As QG only enhances the log the button should be there. If it isn't there there is something wrong but most likely not with QG.

Re: Another mass reply

Originally posted by mrobrian
Completing quests from the tracker, while possible, is not always highly noticeable. I am considering making my tracker just a modification of Blizzard's (to look as close to my current one as possible) that way all of their crazy stuff will work just fine.
If I may make a suggestion?
While I would like the quest completion notification from the tracker to be more "in your face" as the default one because I can see it better and know it's done, I realize there are those who like the more subtle approach of your mod. What about a selectable option to allow the more subtle approach, and the in your face approach? Or even an option for something in between. Like not quite as big as the one in the default tracker, but a little bigger, maybe even as simple as a flashing/glowing/pulsing/whatever border around the quest that says "I'm done, click me!". Well not literally saying that but you get the idea. So maybe 3 options? Default blizzard method, extremely subtle method, and flashy border method?

I felt lost without your tracker when I had to turn it off because of the turn-in on the road feature. I love the cleaner style than the default tracker. But yeah, I agree that the current method is harder to see when it's time to turn something in from the road, and I've missed a few.

Re: Quest log

QuestGuru no longer stores that information. The built-in Blizzard stuff will show you where to go to turn in a quest, or you can use an addon like Quest Helper. The QuestGuru 2.x series is basically a "lite" version of QuestGuru 1.x and won't be as feature rich, but is much more stable.

I've noticed that QG no longer gives the "blue" coords or the npc that originally gave the quest. My question is could you please tell me if there is something that I haven't activated in the QG options or is the issue with me running QC as well or was that function taken out of QG all together. If it's the latter of the three will you be bringing it back it was a great function of the addon.

Thanx
