VipQuester
Version: Revision 45
by: Vipera Berus [More]
Features:
  • Vendor price added to item "buttons" when accepting and/or handing in quests (and using a smaller font to make room for it)
  • Making quest rewards red or yellow - Yellow for 1 armor proficiency rank lower and red for 2+ ranks lower. At level 50 and above, all lower proficiency ranks will be red.
  • Highlight the reward with highest vendor price.
  • Add vendor values to chat for items looted or crafted.
Screenshot was taken on my shammy (using mail at the time), so cloth was made red.

There is a (very simple) options panel... It allows enabling/disabling the features seperately.
The settings are saved on account basis. I assumed most would want it this way.

Current localization list:
  • enUS - Default language
  • ruRU - Translation by Sinlinna
If someone wants to translate it to other languages, send me a message here on WoWI

Bump ToC

Author: Vipera Berus <Viper@Mail2NoWhere.com>

Bump ToC - It's about time to leave 4.x era... :o

And remove a debug print...

*cough* Forgot to bump version number...

commit 9616ca7f462ec3cac29ac7503be0afbf4ea29f2b
Author: Vipera Berus <Viper@Mail2NoWhere.com>
Date: Tue Jul 24 08:32:10 2012 +0200

Rewrote armor proficiency detection - Again... Basing it on a simple table lookup from class and level this time. Should remove any further problems with that ;)
Adding a "block" for level 50+ while at it, so lower proficiencies will be marked red there too... Doesn't quite make sense to use anything but highest type of armor at that point

Added a slash handler that opens the option window - Provided VipQuester isn't "scrolled out" in Blizzards addon panel. Its their bug, so they get to fix it ;)

r29 | ViperaBerus | 2010-10-20 16:00:15 +0200 (Wed, 20 Oct 2010) | 3 lines

Fixed boken default button. Apparently the refresh function is called afterwards, so just setting the checkboxes wont work.
Sideeffect from this is that hitting default will take effect immediately, but blame Blizzard for that ;)

------------------------------------------------------------------------
r28 | ViperaBerus | 2010-10-15 17:52:19 +0200 (Fri, 15 Oct 2010) | 3 lines

Altered armor skill detection again. Apparently the icon isn't the same every time, so went for partial icon name parsing instead...
Would have been nice with a direct call to what armors could be used :P

Attempt at getting SVN to update Version number based on revision.

Could you be more specific?
I can't see any way the few functions I use for this addon can generate any lag
I'm inclined to believe its another addon you have thats the culprit.

Sorry that I took it so long to answer. Well, scratch that lag part of it, but there's a freeze occasionally (for quite few seconds) when getting NPC to give you a quest with rewards in it, game freezes till all items get their info for addon I assume. Aint happening with addon off.

Have you tried with all other addons disabled?

My addon only requests the iteminfo when the related quest-events happen and "mark up" those that are known at the time in WoWs own itemcache (Those 2 requests would be at quest accept dialog and quest complete dialog)

Then it doesn't do anything (meaning game is free to do whatever it wants) until another event is fired about the item information is available in WoWs itemcache.

If that last event doesn't happen (sum of all addons communication is too high, so requests ignored at the server for example), then you wont see prices etc on items for that quest. I deliberately don't try to resend requests to avoid freezing the game

I'm actually not playing any more, but simply adding monk to the list of classes shouldn't be too risky, without being able to actually test it
