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

I have encountered the 0 quest bug as well.

I have 3 accounts and the problem only appears on one of them. I removed the whole account from the WTF directory and cleared the cache.

I also reset all of the interface settings (this is a pain in the ass) to see if one of the settings was causing this issue.

None of these steps have resolved the issue.

I only have 2 80's on the account in question and they are the only ones that are having this issue.

My other 80's on the other 2 accounts do not have this problem.

Let me know what else I can do to try and debug this. This is a programmers nightmare.

I also have this problem and cannot determine a cause for it. Tried the solution the below poster tried as well, to no avail, but my other toon is fine. Additionally, it only happened to me starting last night, which is even more odd. Haven't found a conflict or anything either.

Re: Re: no more announcer

before the patch if you went into the options for the announcer it was auto populated with the text that you needed. after the patch it is no longer in there is why i asked what it was that you had typed in there

Another Option?

Anyone got an optional Mod to use, since this mods taking time to get working again?

Header problems...

I have still not been able to duplicate the problem some people are having of some headers showing "(0)" even though there are quests that should be displayed there. One thing that NOBODY has been telling me is what the header is and what, exactly, the quest is that's missing. I'm still thinking that some other addon is collapsing headers in the quest log, which will cause this problem to show up, so all I can assume is that those people who are running into this problem are using another quest-related addon that I'm not.

I did make a change that should help with this problem, but I've also been in the middle of adding a new feature, so the next version isn't ready for release yet.

Re: Re: Re: no more announcer

Hmm, that's strange. If you go into the options, in the lower left corner is a "Defaults" button. Click that, then choose "These Settings" and all the text will be back, then just click Ok.

Lightheaded

As I sometimes do, I closed the LH window that is attached to the quest log frame. With QuestGuru enabled, I cannot expand it again now - it just goes 1/4 of the way and disappears again. I have to detach it to see it.

Playing on My Death Knight I noticed this (0) Error on the quests I had in Zangarmarsh, Underbog and Silithus. In order to display these Quest I had to disable all of quest guru and use only the tracker. I had the first 5 quests you can get for underbog. so I am not sure what you will have to do to test it. just trying to give you a small list of possible test quests.

This is one of those bugs that may be very difficult to find. I failed to mention in my last post that all of my addons were removed from the interface directory.

My account was removed so it had to be recreated.

The problem still exsists.

I have posted a screenshot of the Questguru interface at:

http://www.sherwoods.com/wow/qg.jpg

Let me know what else I can do to help.

The first thing I notice is that there are two [X] buttons in the upper right corner. There should only be one. This makes me wonder if there is another addon that is also trying to modify the quest log window.

If you could do me a BIG favor, when your quest log looks like that type "/script ExpandQuestHeader(0)" and see if that fixes it. You might have to close and open the window again, or scroll the list or something to get it to update.

QuestGuru_Tracker memory rapidly moves from ~2MB to ~14MB then drops back down to ~2MB. This cycles every 10 seconds it seems. Is this normal behavior?

If by "normal" you mean planned? No. But it does seem to be happening for some users. It might be caused by the quest item icons. The easiest way to test this is to minimize any headers that have quests with item icons and see if the behavior stops. I have seen this behavior on my system from time to time but another poster offered a suggested fix, which I have implemented in my test version and I have not seen the memory fluctuate since, so I hope it fixed it for good. I hope to release this new version today, but I might need to do more testing first.

Great, thank you.

Edit: CPU usage is consistently @ 90% for the tracker. Will have to remove until a fix is in place.

Again, try collapsing any headers with quest icons and see if this problem goes away. Blizzard made a change that could cause high CPU usage, low frame rate, and high memory use when those icons show up. The next version of QuestGuru should fix this.
