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.

Optional Dependencies: Khaos, Satellite, CharactersViewer, LootLink

Khaos: If Khaos is installed, EquipCompare options can be set via the Khaos configuration options. In this case, the settings are rememebered on a per-configuration basis.

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.

Sky (deprecated but supported): If Sky is installed, slash commands are registered via Sky.

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.

I see two tooltips to the right of the one I am wearing. The first one is two boxes superimposed over each other with BOTH items mixed together on top of each other and then the next one is the second item in the bag to compare to the one I am wearing?

Atlas Loot tool tips

I was wondering if you could implement tool tips that work with Atlas Loot. Simular to what Bonuses did.

Re: EquipCompare tooltips way off

TOOLTIP placement is horrible, inconsistent, all over the map.
Suddenly the tips no longer line up. One tip is right at the mouse, the eqc tip is on the other side of the screen opposite wherever the main tip is.

This is a new bug, bad behavior, whatever. I have disabled the mod since it is far too distracting to be useful at this point.

Hopefully it will be updated for 2011. Otherwise, adieu Eqc, it's been fun.
Yeah ive had that same issue every once in a while. What ive been doing is an interface reload and that does the trick. But it does get a little annoying.

Color implement

Love the add-on. Just a small request for it. I personally notice that when it does equipment comparisons there have been times that Ive gotten confused. It would be nice if the window(s) that says "CURRENTLY EQUIPPED", those words could say so with red letters or something to distinguish it at a glance. I would do it but not very versed in LUA programming. Dont know if it would be hard to implement without doing a whole lot of re-write of code.

Question Size

Anyway I can make the comparison tooltips a little bigger? The font on them is coming up very small for me, and I can barely read it.

Only issue I have is that this doesn't work properly with Outfitter Compare as the Equipped Item gets stacked on itself.

Hi Legorol,

Thanks for responding. The EquipCompare tooltip seems be consistently in the same position relative to the location of the bag frame regardless of the tooltip size, but sits in the correct position if MoveAnything is disabled.

Oddly enough when I re-enabled MoveAnything, EquipCompare continued to work ok.

I suggest you just disable then re-enable MoveAnything, which may solve the problem for you (good luck).
Sorry, problem is still persisting. I'll post something on MoveAnything.

(Great add-on, btw)
