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.

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.

I'm not sure which mod is causing this issue so putting it in a few places. I use both EquipCompare and TipTac.

If I have an item open from a chatlink. If an "EquipCompare" tooltip overlaps that one, it kind of merges then together in an unusual and weird way.

Is this a known issue?

Double Comparison Tooltips when Mousing Over Quest Rewardds

Legorol,

Thank you for the great addon.

Since the 3.1 patch and EquipCompare 2.16, I have been experiencing an issue with the item comparison tooltips when mousing over quest rewards in the quest log. When doing so, I see two identical tooltips, just slightly offset from each other, making them unreadable. (It is also happening at the Auction House and vendors.) Mousing over items in my bags does not produce this issue - unless I hold down the shift key, of course, which enables the default Blizzard comparison tooltips and therefore generates the same issue.

Apparently, the game now defaults to showing comparison tooltips when mousing over quest reward items in the quest log (and at the Auction House and vendors, also). I have not been able to find a way to change this default behavior, or to configure EquipCompare so that it will not display for those items while still automatically displaying for other items.

Thanks again for your efforts on this mod.

edit: Please ignore the above. The issue was being caused by the addon Outfitter. The issue occurs when the new option "Show in item comparisons" is enabled, which is enabled by default. Disabling that option resolves the issue.

Sorry for the bother.

Thank you.
LoL'd

Sooo you came in here but you don't want to click the DL button, this is because of.. what?
Because of WM that is equally as bottific and annoying as gold sellers are in-game, you don't agree?
Who the hell cares about some donate buttons?
Who the hell cares about where an addon is located as long as it is quickly and pleasantly being offered in somewhere?

WI and curse does that, they give a good platform for authors to release their addons and visitors can download them with a simple click.
THAT is service, not some seemingly (un)safe update program that 50% of time gives its users outdated addons.

What WM does is only jamming the WI and curse every patch day, prolonging authors from logging in to update their addons and then the visitors can't get the updated addon because of WM, that is nothing but annoying thievery.
If that is what you were referring on with the "decision", can't think of anything else which you might refer to.

Stop being so nihilistic and DL the god damn addon if you want to use it, from a legimite site like this if possible.
I don't support sites who uses botted functions of any kind, be it for gold seller sites gaining funds from people just like you are to continue their spam-crusade or WM who lives by its users, to continue stealing addons from their original authors.

Press the DL button and stop crying. You want to continue using them?

Thank You.

I'm not sure it's appropriate for this functionality to be provided by EquipCompare. I don't modify the original GameTooltip in any way, so it doesn't make sense to put any additional info in the comparison tooltips either. Consider a user who is only running EquipCompare: they would find it odd that the comparison tooltips show item level but not the GameTooltip.

In my opinion whatever addon is modifying the GameTooltip to provide additional info (such as item level) should modify EquipCompare's comparison tooltips too to include the same data. I will keep this suggestion in mind however.

I will take a look at this at some point. I could throw in a workaround fix like the other nil bug, but I'd really like to fix both of these properly in an upcoming version. In the meantime, as a workaround if you want, change line 1264 from:
Code:
 if ( left < 0 ) then
to:
Code:
 if ( left and left < 0 ) then

I concur, for simplicity. However, I use Pawn, which goes a step further. If you want ItemLevel plus some additional information pertaining to YOUR class, Pawn provides more.

I get massive frame drops when the compare tooltip show, or some kind of error.

From the changelog in TipTac:
- Added the function "TipTac:AddModifiedTip(tooltip)" which allows for other addons to "register" tooltips to be modified with the TipTac style. Normally you could just add these to the "TT_TipsToModify" list, but if tips added to that list are dynamically loaded, it wont work. This new function will.
You should check with the author of TipTac. He leaves a section at the very top where you write in the name of the other mod's frame name, and TipTac will adopt itself into that mod. It's very easy. You shouldn't have to be overly modding anything.

Could you please post the exact error message, including (if you can): line number, file name, stack trace or any other information that is displayed with the error message?

"Attempt to compare number with nil" is a fairly general error message that can happen in a variety of places, which I can't narrow down unless I have something more specific. The particular occurrence of this error that are mentioned by most posters has been fixed, but there can be occurrences in other places in the code.

Re: Issue with Equipcompare

Originally posted by markmc01
Hey, I looked but couldn't find this problem listed. Whenever I try to compare items that drop from bosses, usually something that has to be need/greed the information doesn't display. I mouse over it and for a fraction of a second I can see display but it will always disappear. I'll only be able to compare the item(s) unless I either click on the item in the text, or in the loot bag (if I'm the one looting). Does anyone know anything about this, or is it just me? Thank.
Can you confirm that the problem still happens when EquipCompare is the *only* AddOn running? I know this would be a hard test to do in a raid environment, so if you can, grab a friend and get inside a low level instance, and kill stuff until an uncommon/rare item drops.

Can you also please make sure to take a screenshot of the problem and post it somewhere?
