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.
  • All the original localizers (beWRage, Maischter, zerra, eerieN, Firebroo, arith)

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.

* Patch 3.1

Changes in 2.15:

Re: Feature missing

Originally posted by Alakaste
EQcompare would compare items equipped to items you had on your action bar. This is a very useful feature. i.e. if you're mining, you want to have your mining gloves on. Easily mouse over the button on your action bar to equip them or re-equip your regular gloves and it shows which you have equipped. Your version only shows the tooltip for the item on the bar and doesn't compare it.
The reason why EquipCompare doesn't show comparisons when you mouse over a button on your action bar is becuase it's possible that you have dragged your currently equipped item onto the action bar (for example a trinket). If EquipCompare showed comparisons, it would be comparing items to themselves in many cases.

The default UI already shows (with a green border) if an item you have on the actionbar is also currently equipped or not, you don't need a comparison tooltip to appear for you to be able to tell this.

Hence there is no need to show a genuine comparison tooltip for an item on the action bar, and EquipCompare has code to deliberately suppress those.

I understand what you are asking for and it would be a great feature to add, it's one of the most requested. Unfortunately it's a lot more difficult to do than it sounds at first and therefore I don't plan to work on it. Here are some of the stumbling blocks:

When you are not at your bank, WoW does not provide information about what items you have in your bank, so EquipCompare can't see those items either.

Now you will say that there are addons that allow you to see the contents of your bank. However, the way these work is that they memorise the bank contents when you are at the bank, and later on display that memorised content. Writing such a memorisation method is quite complicated and belongs to a bank addon, and is outside the scope of what I'd write for EquipCompare.

In principle, it would be possible to use the memorised contents from one of the bank addons, but then either EquipCompare would be dependent on the particular addon, or would have to be written to work with most of the popular ones out there. Neither solution is desirable to me.

Finally there is the issue of how to select the items from the bank that you need to compare against. For this, you need to understand a bit about how the comparisons are performed at the moment.

When you hover on an item, EquipCompare has two methods available to it. It can look at the item and compare it against particular slots on your character sheet, based on the type of the item. (For example, if you hover on a chestpiece, it compares it against whatever is in the chest slot on your character sheet). The other method is to ask WoW to generate the comparison, whatever the result might be, based on just the knowledge of the item you are hovering on. Note that neither of these methods rely on having to look through all the items you currently have equipped.

Therefore what would be neccessary in order to be able to compare against items in the bank is to systematically look through all the items in there, and select the ones that would be sensible comparison targets. This is a layer of complexity which EquipCompare doesn't have at the moment and I don't plan to code it.

If I can think of a totally different approach to comparisons against items in the bank, I might do it, but it's unlikely.

It adds a money in the tooltip and the game seems to go slow and freeze when selling objects.

Informant from Auctioneer is activated.

Seems to be fixed by modifying the line 2551 in :

I got this error when I threw a gold coin back into the Dalaran fountain. Afterwards, odd tooltip behavior began to plague me until I /reloadui.

Unhappy placement

* 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.
this feature does not work sometimes in ruRU locale at vendors page with weapons.

placement problem with weapon if u have weapon in left and right hand

looks good:



but if i select other item(little bit more widely) - all tooltips going to left side...



may be better move "main" tooltip left ?
or change scale of compare-tooltips ?

Is there anything in particular you're trying to view/compare when this error happens (just curious)?

So far, the add-on is working OK for me (*crosses fingers*). In fact, I'm running it with SellFish, Auctioneer, LootCount, LinkWrangler and several other tool-tip enhancers and info add-ons. But then I've only been looking at things in my bank (just started using it again).

*waits for WoW to scream "I can't take it anymore!"*

actually yeah i forgot to mention that

the initial problem happens when i mouse over my bars(bartender 4), over a trinket(and maybe quest items), after that it starts to mess up. i use Tip-Top for tooltip stuff with the full auctioneer suite

i also use 30'something mods but the problem persisted even without them, even when there's only this mod installed with sell value mods(don't matter witch)

Thanks for all the reports on the "attempt to compare number with nil" bug. Arcadin's fix is a good temporary solution and should work in most cases. Unfortunately it is just treating the symptom and doesn't fix the underlying issue. I'm having a hard time reproducing this bug on my end and I'm researching its details though, so a proper fix will have to wait a bit.

@xocoru: The feature you have quoted actually includes a warning for your situation: "In rare cases tooltips may still be partially off the screen, if the tooltips can't fit on any side". From your screenshots, it looks like it doesn't matter which side of the main tooltip the comparisons would be placed, they would be off the screen at least partially. So EquipCompare can't do anything about it (at the moment). Moving the main tooltip is harder than it sounds ;-)

Question NotesUNeed

Hello, Legorol! Would you consider helping in the overlapping problem with [NotesUNeed]? That's the only addon i know for adding own tooltips to things, and it does not stack very well with EC :/
