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 1
------------------

* History is no longer stored on your computer but is retrieved from the server instead

* Upgraded to ChatThrottleLib v21

Not Gone Yet

Howdy all,

I may not be out of the picture after all. RL is in flux just now and looking hopeful so I'm not going to relinquish Author-ship of this mod just yet. Hang in there.

I just updated the Mod for the 5.4 patch. No real changes, just a TOC update.

So, I'm looking for a replacement author to take over this AddOn. I'll stay on until somebody steps forward but I do not have the time to do anything with the mod and it deserves a better hand at the wheel than I can provide.

Please send me a PM if you are interested.

Thank you,

Hangs up keyboard input of reload

Hi.

First of all - thank you for the addon, it's one of must have mods.

Now, back to the issue. Recently my WoW started to hang up pretty oftenly. It loads up, everything works finely, but, it won't react to mouse or keyboard. Later I found that I still can press buttons on mods using mouse, like Bartender, but WoW itself won't react (i.e. - can't rotate camera, can't move, can't interact with NPCs, can't open game menu <ESC> etc.). I disabled all mods and started enabling them one by one, and running "/console reloadui" multiple times. After enabling QuestGuru Tracker (Tracker specifically) - WoW started to exhibit above mentioned behavior again. Without mods - everything works finely.

Did a clean check - diabled all mods, kept only QuestGuru + Tracker enabled. Issue reproduces after a few "/console reloadui". Disabled just tracker (keeping QuestGuru enabled) - issue is gone.

No errors pop up or print to chat.

(And ofc issue with tracking achievements after loading screen.)

Hope you could take a look into this.

Best regards.

Achievement Tracker Bug

Having the same problem as many others with the achievement tracking going wrong.

Looking at the error you get (trying to work with a nil value) and the fact that it happens only on reload (ie whenever you hit a loading screen like when entering an instance or switching continents), I'm guessing it happens with a sync inssue, that the addon is trying to get the achievement info too soon, and getting nothing in response without checking for that possibility.

EDIT: Yeah, looking at the code, if currLine isn't high enough to trigger the loop at line 565 (of QGT_Achievement.lua), then j is never initialized, and therefore it breaks at line 626. So j probably needs to be checked or given a default value to prevent that from happening...

Achievement tracker

I've been having the same issues as others with the seperate achiev tracker. It won't always untrack complete ones and when it's doing that I can't add any new ones to track. It tends to fix it when I close game and reopen though.

The tracker seems to be acting up the past few days - no idea if this has been an issue for longer, but I just happened to notice it now that I'm actively tracking achievements again.

The following happens: I add an achievement to my tracker (it happened with the Pandaria bonfire and the Scenaturday one). It goes okay for a while, I afk a few times, I do some scenarios and Ahune, and then I notice that the A is no longer visible in my tracker. I check my achievement window, and all achievements I had been tracking (including a few old ones that were already in the list, such as the /love for critters) are unchecked. So I re-add the achievement I wanted to check up on. The A appears again in the tracker, and I click it. The tracker goes *poof* and I can't get it back unless I relog.

Any idea what this is and, most importantly of course, if it can be fixed?

Getting the same error as reported below. For me it seems to happen most when using portals / hearthstones etc while having achievements tracked.

First, let me say thankyou for your addon, I have enjoyed it for several years and a big thanks for the scenario fix! I hated activating bliz's quest tracker when going into scenario's.

The addon called Pet Tracker adds some info to the bottom of the bliz quest tracker about pets you have found in the zone (more specifically it is tied to the zone you have the map open for if it is different than your current zone). Is there a way for that info to be attached to QG Tracker? and maybe more generic of a question, anything that gets added to the bliz quest tracker.?

I still wish there was a more obvious popup type thing for the self turn in quests, even if it was let me set the color of the bar that shows that it is a complete quest. I appreciate that support was added for that new (in Cata) feature, but I think it could be more useful.

New Update for MoP Escalation 5.3

I updated the TOC for the Expansion.

I fixed the bug that caused it to blow up. I haven't extensively tested it yet, but it's not blowing up for me currently.

**AND MOST IMPORTANT**
I added the updates to the Tracker that CMTitan provided that made the tracker work a bit better with Scenarios.

To all those who've been concerned about my invisibility I thank you. I have been dealing with a difficult situation since about the middle of last year that has severely cramped my time and my energy. Things are getting better, but it's still slow.

Thanks to all of you,
