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 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

Does the Blizzard tracker have all these features?
Yes.

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.
I use Chinchilla which has an added bonus that let you resize and move various interface objects to the way you like. It's a wee bit buggy here and there right now but overall very useable and retain everything the "Default" interface behavior should have.

Hiding zones is just a mouseclick with QG so that's already there.
It's automatic in Blizzard's case.

Sorting by difficulty is not that important as the colors and quest levels show that information.
Agreed. But if you miss many other things for just quest level and colouring, that's a no-no.

For the proximity and numbering thing there's a Questhelper lite that combines the Blizzard quest helper features with the waypoint system of Questhelper.
Well that's another addon you have to use just to get back something the default UI already have...

I have not been able to duplicate the issue you were having. Was it with a specific quest, or after a certain event or anything?

This is due to a change I made to try to avoid the possibility of taint. I went looking through some of Blizzard's code and found they do something very strangely. I do know how to fix this issue, and the next version will have it fixed, but I want to do additional testing to see if taint might happen.

Also, I'm not sure why you are still getting the check marks to right of tracked quests as the boxes to the left should be replacing those. You might want to turn off the addon you are using to modify the look of the quest log and see if that clears it up.

yes i get this also. as you can see by the photo. and all i did was move the L down.



as you can see. i had "the breath of cenarius" of what ticked the main part. "blackrock depths" wbut when i move the tracker of L down yuo can see it sticks.

going to see the new update.
ps i see the update fixed the achment tracking. but the quest log is messed up. i track a pack. but when i close and open the log its unticked. but still showing as tracked on the tracker.

the look of the quest log is just AI-Art. and took out all other addons and and moved out all SV files. i just felt it was due to one of the update. as it has only started to do that the past 2 updates. with the ticks to the right.

I started having issues a couple of updates ago too, culminating in me finally deciding I had to fix it or kill something. I cleared out my cache, wtf, and interface folders to ensure that I was starting fresh. I was still getting an error and the tracker was all screwed up. Deleting all the BlizzardUI folders and then logging out and back in seemed to fix it. Dunno if that will work for anyone else.

I like the addon really but i am not using it atm, because it still screws Quests up, i was having issues with 2.1 and stopped using it because it screwed up, and now with an alt i tried 2.2.1 and its the same as soon as i did some quests
in hijyal and gotten to the point where u get the 1st automatic quest i didnt get that and couldnt continue the whole map anymore because no chance to grab the quest manually and after a few more quest the quest line just stopped because of that missing escort quest.

What kind of problems were you having?

Also, whenever deleting any files/folder such as Cache, WTF, etc., always make sure you are completely out of the game first. The game loads all that stuff into memory and then writes it when you exit, so deleting those files might have no effect if you do it with the game running. The same is true with updating addons; if you update an addon while the game is running and then just relog, you will most likely encounter errors because the game doesn't reload all of the files, just some of them.

With the QuestGuru tracker, automatic quests are not "in your face" like they can be with Blizzard's tracker. Also, automatic quests are just that: automatic. QuestGuru doesn't do anything that would or could block such quests, it just might not necessarily include all the new stuff Blizzard added for them. All you have to do is click the "O" button on the tracker to open the options and uncheck the option to hide the Blizzard tracker if you suspect the default UI would do something different than QuestGuru.

I'm pretty sure the disappearing quest texts isn't a QG issue. I have no issues with only QG enabled. For me at least it only happens when I open my map with Mapster addon enabled. Like this:



Either it's an issue with windows that aren't supposed to be able being open simultaneous (since on default UI you can't have quest log and map open same time) or there's issues with other addons than QG. Although it might be different problem since mine goes away when I close and re-open the log.

I'm also getting the weird scrolling and I have nothing else that modifies quest log. The tick marks on the right appear only after the weird scrolling.

Normally these would be such minor hassles to me that I wouldn't bother with the effort of troubleshooting and posting, but since there's been so many obscure posts with no details I wanted to add some. Hope this helps. Let's not make this site like Curse please.

And thank you MrObrian for keeping it up to date!!

I *think* (though I could be wrong because I haven't looked that deeply into it) that the quest log and the map actually share a frame for displaying quest information, so it would make sense that if both the quest log and the map are open then one of them would not get that frame.

I do have the weird scrolling fixed, but it seems silly to release yet another update so soon for such a minor issue. If I don't end up making any other changes soon, I'll probably release it within the next couple of days. I'm trying to see if I can get those check marks to glitch and show up on the right of the title, but so far no go. The problem with being a developer is that everything seems to work great for me

I can't speak for others, but I personally don't find that silly at all - right now it bugs me that I can't add quests to the tracker decently without getting all confused because the checkboxes on the left side scroll as well (and leave me wondering which quests are tracked and which aren't).

That aside, I have two points I'd like to make a request about:

1 - QG used to be able to remember the position of the quest log and keep it there, so that I won't have to drag it to the centre of the screen every time.. it no longers does so and I miss it, can it be added again?

2 - I just cleaned up my WTF folder and had to configure all my addons again.. then I realised how tedious it is to have to set the tracker options for each of my alts separately - especially the objective colouring -, because those aren't saved to a default profile (unlike the rest of QG such as announcements). Could you please add a default profile to the tracker options, so that I can choose to only configure them once?

Well, I knew I'd be making more changes, and I didn't want to inundate everyone with updates, so I held off for a day or two. I know the scrolling thing is annoying, so I think I'll release the next version now that fixes it.

1. QG used to be its own window, but is now just a modifier of Blizzard's quest log. For some reason Blizzard didn't make their quest log movable, so I added that feature, but they also wrote some weird code to set its position each time it opens... anyway, long story short, next version will remember where you moved it that session (it doesn't store it across sessions).

2. I have been considering the best way to add profiles for the options, and will likely work on that for an upcoming release.
