EquipCompare  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.18
by: Legorol [More]

Patch 4.0.1: The latest version is patch 4.0.1 compatible. There are no functionality changes, EquipCompare still works, so I just updated the version number.

If you like this AddOn, please consider making a small, optional donation of any amount that is convenient for you to show your support. You can use PayPal for this:

Summary

When you shop for items at a vendor or the Auction House and you hover over an item, you get a comparison tooltip showing the "currently equipped" item too. This AddOn adds such a feature everywhere in the game where you can hover over items, such as in your bags, in the loot window or on the reward page of a quest. You also receive comparison tooltips when clicking an item link in the chat box.

For detailed description of features, see the included Description.txt file. Simple install/uninstall/usage instructions are given below. Post a comment if you like, or discuss the AddOn in this thread: http://www.wowinterface.com/forums/s...ead.php?t=2597

The AddOn is compatible with and the texts are localized for US English, EU English, German, French, Korean, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese clients.

Troubleshooting

Check the Known Issues list first! If EC only appears to be working at the AH and vendors, but nowhere else, then you donīt actually have EC correctly installed and working! The default Blizzard UI has EC-like features in those two places already, thatīs what you are seeing. In this case, make sure that EC is enabled correctly on the character selection screen.

Advanced tip: For some really advanced uses, turn on the Alt-key mode and install CharactersViewer. Choose an alternate character in CV, go to the Auction House then hover over an item. First you get comparison with your equipped item, but then hold Alt to get comparison with your alternate character. Shop with ease both for yourself and your other characters with this great feature!

Install

Unzip the downloaded zip file into your "World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns" folder. This is a standalone, pure AddOn.

Uninstall

Delete the "World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\EquipCompare" folder.

Usage

The AddOn is enabled by default. Type "/equipcompare help" for further usage information, or see the documentation in the included Description.txt file.

Developer API

See the included Description.txt for a short summary. See the comments in front of each of the functions in EquipCompare's code for full documentation.

Known Issues

  • Main/Off Hand item both gets displayed in situations when a lot of players feel they shouldn't be (This works as intended at the moment).
  • If you view an Off Hand item when you have a 2H item equipped, you don't get comparison with the equipped 2H item. (This works as intended at the moment).
  • If both comparison tooltips are getting displayed and they are very wide (e.g. German client), it is possible that they don't both fit on the screen. In this case, part of one might get cut off.

Special thank you goes to

Flisher for the very fruitful collaboration on making CharactersViewer and EquipCompare work together.

Thanks goes to
  • WoWInterface and Curse Gaming for hosting the AddOn.
  • The entire Cosmos team for their help and support (including, but not limited to AlexYoshi, Thott, Sarf, AnduinLothar, StarDust, Sasmira).
  • Norganna for making Auctioneer work together with EquipCompare
  • Woofiest for the bug reports and great AddOn pack.

Satellite: If Satellite is installed, slash commands are registered via Satellite.

Lootlink: If LootLink is installed, you will receive the comparison tooltips when hovering over items in the LootLink database.

CharactersViewer: If CharactersViewer (version 55 or higher) is installed, EquipCompare shows comparison tooltips with the items of the character you have selected in CV, instead of with the currently equipped items, provided this feature is enabled in EquipCompare. Use this great feature to easily compare your equipment or inventory with your alts. Alternatively, do things like receive relevant shopping tooltips at the Auction House, when you are shopping for your alt.

Cosmos (deprecated but supported): If Cosmos is installed, EquipCompare options can be toggled on and off via the Cosmos configuration menu. In this case, the settings are remembered on a per-character basis.

Changes in 2.18:
* Patch 4.0 TOC update

Changes in 2.17:
* Patch 3.3 TOC update

Changes in 2.16:
* Patch 3.1

Changes in 2.15:
* Temporary workaround for the frequent "attempt to compare number with nil" bug that seem to appear for a lot of people.

Changes in 2.14:
* Weapon comparison behaviour changed. This fixes the missing main/offhand tooltip bug as well.
* Tooltip placement logic significantly improved. If there is one side to fit all the comparison tooltips, the code will find it now. In rare cases tooltips may still be partially off the screen, if the tooltips can't fit on any side.

Changes in 2.13:
* Patch 3.0

For older change notes see the included Change Notes.txt file.

Problem of dispaly in the AH...

Hi,

First, I regret the disappearance of this addon into Curse....

When in the Auction House, some "currently equipped" window appear on the left of the item window and then it might notr show completely...

Could you please have all the time the "current equipped" window always appear on the right of the item description window inside the AH?

If you don't understand I can try to post a screenshot...

Thanks in advance...

Display tooltip on mouseover

Hello,

I know this is probably not quite within EquipCompare's scope, but I'm going to ask it anyway: is there any chance that you could add an option to display tooltips on mouseover?

Ah well, it was worth a try.

cheers,

- Fin

I haven't seen any problem with EquipCompare since 2.3.0 up to 2.3.3. Could you please elaborate on what's broken about it?

I have a couple of addons that add stuff into the tooltips, and this means that sometimes if I try to compare, say, a ring or a trinket to my current ones, the tooltips run off the edge of the screen, making it impossible to actually read them. Is there a way to get it the same as the Blizzard AH-only version, where the compare tooltips simply flip over to the other side of the 'proper' tooltip?

Couldn't see any info about what's changed in v2.11, so I checked the Changelog.txt file:

Changes in 2.11:
* Patch 2.3
That's it, so it seems v2.11 is just a toc update, no other changes listed. Also note that the zip file I downloaded contained all the EquipCompare files but without any folder or path info, so there's no EquipCompare folder when you extract the files!

CharacterInfoStorage

CharacterInfo is also a very nice character information addon for which I think it would be great to have support. Specifically, this addon attempts to allieviate the problem of so many addons wanting to store a copy of everything one owns.

Rather than provide all of the added functionality, CharacterInfoStorage only keeps track of inventory, character stats, bag space, and bank space. CharacterInfo uses that to provide a CharacterViewer-ish interface to that data.

TradeSkillInfo hooks into this to add to item tooltips where you have something besides ones current inventory. (Just to point out that there are other addons that use it, too.)

I have experienced one problem. If I apply any buff to my hand weapon, whether this is +dmg or added mana return upon hit, the buff is displayed along with all over buffs/debuffs and uses my wapon's icon as the buff icon. Hopefully that wasn't confusing. Anyways, if I hover over the icon for the buff, this mod attempts to compare the buff with my own hand weapon causing a screwy box to appear which is missing borders and completely blocks the beneficial read out of the buff.

Might want to look into this issue.

Sanity Inventory, seems like an exciting AddOn!

Yes that definitely looks buggy I would have to try them out together. Alas, I don't have much time at the moment, and patch 2.1 will bring some API changes that will require a rewrite. So in all honesty, I wouldn't hold your hopes up, this won't be fixed any time soon. Thanks very much for the good bug report with the screenshot though.

I found that if you sort by catagory and make sure to mouseover the catagory first as you go down, it works real smooth and a bit quicker.

If you mouse out of the inventory and back on the specific item, it shows the correct data. Gonna try the LoadOnDemand version to get around this (hopefully!).

Love the mod otherwise.
