QuestGuru  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.3.06
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 2.3.06
-------------

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
-------------

* The quest log frame will now remember where it was when moved

Version 2.2.2
-------------

Can't abandon quests

Love the addon, but I'm experiencing a problem. When I highlight a quest and click Abandon, the confirmation window always asks if I want to abandon the last quest in the list. I also use Titan Quests and I'm able to abandon the correct quest using it, but I already abandoned one accidently using Guru.

Of course Here's my idea:

QuestGuru will no longer replace the quest log, but enhance the existing one to add all the features in the current QuestGuru.

QuestGuru History will be a separate window, probably with a keybinding to easily show/hide it as well as a button on the quest log. A character's actual history will no longer be saved, but the quest information will be, and the list of completed quests will be retrieved from the server. If Blizzard allows us to retrieve quest information then not much at all will need to be stored.

QuestGuru Tracker will not see much change at all. Everyone seems to be fairly happy with it the way it is.

Those are my *plans*, but reality could be different since I am very busy with work and school right now. Hopefully 3.3 won't be released too soon.

cool, sounds good - that was pretty much exactly what I was hoping to hear

and yeah, I love the tracker how it is, don't think it needs any changes at all.

Most likely you have another quest-related addon installed like QuestsFu or something, I forget what all ones do it, but I'm assuming Gahzrilla is the bottom quest in your list? This problem will be fixed in the next version, but right now I'm unable to work on it because of a busy work a school schedule.

Finnally, I dont see any Daily tab, as it should.

Hope you can fix it soon, I need this addon so much

Update: Same problem with the share feature.... the quest being shared is not the one I choose... allways the same quest, but not the selected.

I've just noticed the last couple of days that when I do dailies, my quest log does not update and does not show the quests in the log or on the map. I have no other quest related addons except Lightheaded, Questguru and Questhelper. I disabled everything to check for a possible conflict and can find none. The quests still will not show up or update.

Thank you.

Just got a few points to add here. I just installed the quest tracker alone to test it, and it looks just the way i want. However, i noticed it collects alot of garbage memory (from ~130kb to ~400kb just after accepting a few quests). If you could look into this, i'll be very happy. I know memory isn't very important, but increasing memory is something i don't like having in my addons.

This error happens because the header (category) of some of the new seasonal quests is the same as the questname itself.
So QuestGuru gets confused and tries to get the header link instead of the actual quest link.

The fix is rather easy if you're not afraid of a small source edit:
Open QuestGuruAnnounce.lua in a text editor, scroll to the bottom
and replace lines 465-466 with
Code:
local qTitle, _, _, _, isHeader = GetQuestLogTitle(i);
if not isHeader and (qTitle == questTitle) then

I'm having a conflicting issue between QuestGuru and EveryQuest in that when ever I change world map (Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, Northrend, Outland, and Dranei/Blood Elf areas) I get the following error:

I posted this originally to the author of EveryQuest and he said it was not his mod. When I tested without loading QG the error did not occur which leads me to assume it might be an issue with QG. Any way you can look into it and see because QG rocks and the only way to temp fix the error is to reload and in which case when ever I change maps again the error pops disabling EveryQuest's ability to track completed quests. Thanks

that bug isn't everyquest or questguru. Questguru doesn't even use that lib, in fact that lib is what the bug is, it hasn't been updated for 3.2 at all and just about any addon still using it will have that error on zoning. Everyquest uses that lib still far as I know though, i think what that author was telling you is his addon depends on that lib, but that lib is not his addon so he can't fix it. :\
