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.

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.

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.

Post Inspect bug in the game, not in the addon

Currently there's a bug preventing inspecting people (well).
Not sure if it's corrected soon though, with all Blizzard's people working on Cataclysm now.

Doesn't work at all

I think the problem is with anything that is inspected. I get errors out the ying yang with anything like this or Gearscore. ZERO functionality.

I think I've found a bug.

And I think it's in EquipCompare, but I'm not quite sure -- can't log in to check.

The tanking cloak from Ahune is about 600 armor. However, it does not turn into nearly 3000 armor on a druid -- because only the base armor is multiplied, not the bonus armor.

I have no clue how you could detect this, but given that the addon is free and maintained out of the goodness of your heart, I am sure you realize that failure to fix it immediately will result in a lawsuit.

Any chance that the +/- could be optional? i would prefer not having it.

Thanks in advance for this amazing addon

Since last update, having a problem...

Some of my toon's tooltips are wrong. When I hover over a soulbound item in my inventory, it shows "binds when equipped" instead of "soulbound". My equipped items are properly shown as soulbound. Any ideas how to fix? Thanks

I know 3.2 introduced a new feature to the default Blizzard comparison tooltips, which is the +/- comparison of stat changes. It's not trivial to add this function to EquipCompare, so I hadn't done it yet, but I plan to.

I also know that overly wide comparison tooltips can still be cut off and be partially off the screen sometimes.

I haven't uploaded a version for 3.2 because the current version still works resonably well, and I haven't made any useful fixes recently.
