Ara Broker Reputations  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r18
by: Aranarth, altelulex
This data broker plugin keeps track of your watched faction and displays a Blizzard-like faction list: colored bars in tree view mode that show standing (ie: Honored) and switch to raw numbers (ie: 2400/12000) when mouse hovered. You can access the config menu by right-clicking the block.


It does pretty much what Broker Factions does with the following additions:
- Can represent the watched faction with an ASCII bar.
- Can sort by reputation level (thx to Neorgia)
- Can watch hidden factions.
- Colors are editable.


It has been designed with efficiency in mind: fast and lightweight, yet feature full.


Click a header (white entry) to expand or collapse.
Click a faction to "watch" it. (Alliance Vaguard and Horde Expedition are special cases and require a shift+click to be watched.)
Middle-Click a faction to move it to actives/inactives.
Right-Click a faction to copy its info in chatbox.

Collapsed headers are saved across session (with the exception of inactive factions that are automatically collapsed by Blizzard at login).


This plugin supports AddonLoader (delayed loading), Skinner and SharedMedia (limited).


Credits: Broker Factions (Tristanian) for options and color coding ideas.
r18
- fixed a color-issue for brawlers fight club

r17
- fixed "best friend" issue also for text in broker bar itself (note: maybe need to change watched faction once after updating)

r16
- fixed "best friend" issue

r15
- updated TOC to patch 5.4

r14
- updated TOC to patch 5.3

r13

- implemented option to sort by reputation level (code by neogia ... thx)
- removed green squares in setup menu

r12
- fixed: auto switch with double bonus by "Grand Commendation" did not work

r11
- fixed: auto switch was not taking into account the "Except for guild reputation" option and forced unwanted switch.


r10
- added an option (set by default) to use TipTac skin (requires TipTac).
- fixed: auto switch not detecting guild faction since 4.1.
- fixed: if auto switch on reputation gain except for guild reputation is set, and the watched faction is your guild, and you earn guild rep, it was not updating the display.
- fixed: scrolling a huge panel made the top 1-3 entries to overlap.
- fixed: having no watched faction could result in weird numbers.
- updated config menu layout to match 4.1 changes.


r9
- Added an option to ignore guild reputation gain when auto switch is enabled, preventing guild faction from shadowing another faction.


r8
- Fixed hardcoded fonts: should now be compatible with all languages.


r7
- Added support for guild reputation tracking. (untested but r7 is my lucky version!)
- Added "Ctrl+MouseWheel to resize tooltip" and an option to manually set a precise value.
- Added possibility to unwatch a faction: simply toggle it.
- The tooltip is now displayable in combat if enabled in your LDB display addon.
- Fixed a rare issue with Bazooka (1 pix gap).
- Fixed a rare graphical issue where a highlight could appear on tooltip before mouse enters it.
- Fixed screen height calculations to determine max number of factions to show before using a scroll bar.
- Improved config menu.


r6
- Fixed the right-click functionality that copies faction informations to the chat edit box.
- Changed the default background a bit.


r5
- Added "iconCoords" for LDB displays that handle it.
- Added support for MMOUI Minion.
- Removed unnecessary Skinner and SharedMedia optional dependencies, it was also creating Skinner problems. (Credits goes to Jncl).


r4
- Fixed "Auto switch on reputation gain" to ignore negative reputations.
- Fixed an error that was occuring with exalted watched factions.
- Added an option to show "reputation to go" on the block.
- Added an option for tooltip bars to use ASCII colors instead of Blizzard's.

- Added an option to show session gain on the block.
- Added hints and an option to show/hide.
- Fixed negative session gain.
- Added support for SharedMedia's Smooth v2.
- Right-Click a faction to copy informations to chatbox.
- Middle-Click a faction to move to active/inactive (was undocumented).


r2
- Added limited support to SharedMedia (Armory, BantoBar, Blizzard, Glaze, LiteStep, Minimalist, Otravi, Smooth).

Autos-switch

Great addon, but was just wondering if I'm doing something wrong with the auto switch feature. Thing is it works - too well. I dont' want it to automatically switch unless I tell it to. (I'm doing the goblin reps atm, and it keeps unwatching the one l want watched in the main experience bar/dispaly info in chocolate bar.) I'm sorta picky, and it really isnt' a big deal, but.
Anyway, really do love this, and the other addons of yours l've tried.

Why don't you turn off auto-switch when you grind a specific faction and turn it on when you do various dailies ?

Thats what we get when we try to change colors.

Grinding rep on my alt with the Magram Centaur, I lose rep with the Gelkis every time I kill one of their number. So I get +20 Magram rep, and -100 Gelkis rep. Since the Gelkis change is the last one to be applied, that's what Reputations is automatically switching to watch. But I don't care how low my rep goes with Gelkis, I just wanna know when my Magram rep hits Friendly.

What Broker Factions did that I was using before you made this, was ignore negative rep gains. Could you implement that? (How bout as an option? Default to on?)

Outstanding add-on! I love being able to easily mouse over and see what all my current faction standings are.

Have a question though. I like the colors of the ASCII, so I did a copy/paste of those colors over to the Blizzard colors in the options so that the bars from the tool-tip are the same colors as the text display in the block of the add-on, but the thing is it also changes the color of the faction name in the block of the add-on. Instead of it being the same color as the current reputation level, I would just like to have the faction name in the block be white, but if I change it in Blizzard colors, then it turns all the bars in the tool-tip to white as well.

To try to simplify what I stated above, it goes something like this, again this is for the block text.

(Default)
The Sons of Hodir - Honored - 63% - 7625/12000 - Session +0

(What I would like it to look like)
The Sons of Hodir - Honored - 63% - 7625/12000 - Session +0

But, when I changed the faction name to white (which is done via the Blizzard color options for the add-on, it also changes the tool-tips bars to all white.

If that still isn't a good explanation, let me know and I will take screen shots to even better explain.

Thank you again for this outstanding add-on!

Thanks

Really pleased I found this when I moved from fubar!

Thanks for all your efforts, any chance you could adjust the font as I use Calibri everywhere?

I did try to change the lua file myself but failed, think its something to do with onevent setfont, and not declaring the calabri.ttf correctly the bar tezt appears fine just the tootip errors with:-

...ns\Ara_Broker_Reputations\Ara_Broker_Reputations.lua:259: OnEnter()
ChocolateBar\Chocolate.lua:192:
ChocolateBar\Chocolate.lua:161
Edit - also I'd like the ability to see the spill over from various "groups" of factions ie Alliance?

Gonna replace the amended file in the mean time.

Is this going to be updated? I edited the TOC file, but that seems kind of...ghetto. Not to mention a bit dishonest.

Editing TOC files is neither necessary nor recommended. Simply use the "Load out of date addons" option Blizzard gives you at the addons screen.

Re: Thanks

I'm still taking a (long) break from WoW but a friend lent me his account so I could debug/update some addons.

I never explored properly how the font system works because it was boring, and now I'm lazy , so here is how I would do it:
- Create a "Fonts" folder at the root of your WoW install folder ("D:\Applications\World of Warcraft\Fonts\" in my case).
- Put 4 copies of the Calibri font in that folder.
- Rename them as: "ARIALN.ttf", "FRIZQT__.ttf", "MORPHEUS.ttf" and "skurri.ttf".

Thanks so much for the update! This is my favorite reputation broker, and I'm so pleased to hear you'll be checking out your other addons for feature requests and debugging. Hoping to have you back at wow soon! Thanks so much!

Awwww... WoW 3.3.5 broke something... So, now there is no colored bar beneath the reputation amounts in the tooltip. It's all just gray and colorless, and you have to mouse over a faction to get any idea how far you are into the stated reputation level. Do you have any idea what might be wrong with it? Send me a PM if you can, and I'll help you test it anything in real time. TIA!

Edit: Turns out somehow the texture got deselected. All I had to do was choose one again, and they're all back! Hooray! (I'm a nub...)

Thanks, Aranarth. As always, you're my hero.

3.3.5 broke another thing: Linking reputation values to chat frame doesn't work.
