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

Thumbs up 1.0.10b Released! :)

Ok, so there was a bug in 1.0.10 that I didn't catch. Not sure why I didn't get the error but MANY other people did. Anyway, it's fixed in 1.0.10b

Thumbs up 1.0.10 Released

New Version Today! This version enhances the Achievement tracker, fixes the World Map icons when using Cartographer, and provides a bunch of bug fixes and minor improvements.

This is likely to be the last release until the 3.2 patch as it is taking a LOT more work than I had anticipated to fix QuestGuru to work on it. I don't understand why Blizzard suddenly changes things like QuestDifficultyColor to QuestDifficultyColors . A bunch of APIs that QuestGuru uses have had their names changed, some very slightly (like adding an "s") and some have also experienced a functionality change to where they no longer interact with QG as expected.

I am on the PTR with a few characters and it took me less than 10 minutes to fix all of the errors and get QG working again. Unfortunately, the version that will work on 3.2 will not work on the current live servers (I hate when Blizz does this to me). As they work more on 3.2, and I work more on the version of QuestGuru for it, I will release a beta version.
Thats cool, its the reason I go on there to test my addons too. Just thought I would point it out in case you hadn't got on there yet.

In case you haven't got on there yourself it looks like questguru is having teething problems on the 3.2 test realm. Here is the error messages I am getting:

Auto-Collapse non-current zone

Is there any way to auto-collapse the zones that you're not in? I used an addon called "QuestByZone" that did this, however using it in conjunction with QuestGuru is kind of flakey.

What happens is the quest zones do collapse, but it shows no quests in any other zone other than the current zone. I cant expand the collapsed zones to verify active quests

if you need a screeny let me know. but basically it just shows collapsed zones that I have quests in with a checkmark and a zero (0) next to the zone.

thanks!

Thanks, that worked.
Also, I realized that I have forgotten that I disabled QG tracker and was using Blizzard's default tracker.

Now I feel like a total idiot posting about it

I've searched about but what I've seen so far is that ''if you dont want the tracker, disable it'' kinda thing

Problem is, I want the tracker, just not where I want it to be. I want to move it to another spot on screen.

Is it possible?

Addons that I use that have quest tracker frame:-
SimpleMinimap - tried unlocking the frame to enable its mover to show, but doesnt show up. Suspect its addon conflict?
QuestGuru - clueless

AHAA !!! fix't the issues i was having.

For the record, the quests weren't auto-tracking simply cos i had my map near the bottom of my UI, and the tracker was off-screen, therefore was blocking any more quests as "i did not have enough free space to track more"

What an annoyance this has been, heads up for anyone else struggling.

hey Mr O'B

to clarify:

Yes, i'm currently levelling a new alt, so have Questhelper installed, therefore have its tracker active (dunno why, i just really like the tracker). Edit: i have the QH tracker set to only watch whats selected in the quest log

AFAIK, i've not changed anything, yet all of a sudden, quest's no longer seem to auto-track any more. I've tried clean installs etc, but as it's on 2 PC's, and both are updated manually, I'm guessing it's not something i did.

As i said, i've made sure the blizz options for tracking are ticked, and don't "think" i have any other conflicting addons (nothing changed barring a few updated versions of altoholic / pb4 / arkinventory) so i'm a bit puzzled.

If needs be, i can post a screenie of my addons foldder, in case something flags as being a conflicting addon :/

Bit stumped now tbh

EDIT: after some testing, it's ONLY the new alt that the auto-tracking isn't working on, all other toons are fine :/

xtoq - I thought I had been telling the game to display the tooltips just based on where the quest title was, but apparently I did specify to the left. The next version will fix it so that it will display to the right if the tracker is to the left.

If you only want to show the achievement tracker temporarily and you usually have both trackers shown, right-click the "*" on the achievement tracker. Then when you want to show both trackers again right-click on the "Q". This is much easier than untracking all quests. The trackers will stay separate windows, the key binding will show/hide both.

Tearstar - QuestGuru is designed to be double wide at all times, changing that now would require a massive amount of work that I am not willing to do.

eldavido - I'm not sure what you mean about using 2 trackers if you use the QG tracker... are you also using some other quest tracker addon? And I did some testing and quests are auto-tracking just fine with QuestGuru running without the QuestGuru tracker. The quests were being added to the Blizzard tracker normally.

Hey.

I'm finding I have the same issue as Prismatech, with new quests not being auto-added to the tracker, yet the option is enabled in the Blizz menu. If i use the QG tracker, everything is fine, but then i'm using 2 trackers, and it's a bit of a waste :/

Any ideas on a fix, or any way to hide the QG tracker ?

Cheers

Turn this option on in the game options - NOT QuestGuru options - under "objectives" I believe. Must be on in Blizzard options to work as QG hooks into some of the code of the default tracker I think.
