FuBar - QuestsFu  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 4.0.1B
by: Kemayo [More]
WARNING: I don't actively use this myself any more. I wrote BetterQuest which I now use instead. If you're not incredibly wedded to FuBar, I'd recommend switching. I'll keep on fixing this up while people use it, but I'll be relying on bug reports to discover things that break.

This is a quest-tracker replacement plugin for FuBar. It provides a tooltip which replicates /most/ of the information from the quest log. It can display (or not): quest level, difficulty, objectives, zones, and suchlike. It will put quest information into the tooltips for quest monsters and items. It will make quest levels appear when talking to NPCs.

If other people in your party are using QuestsFu it'll show you how many of each quest objective they've gathered.

If you want it to, and don't think it will annoy people, you can send a message to party chat when you advance a quest objective.

Shift-click on quests in the tooltip to copy the title to the chatbox if it's open.
Control+Shift-click on quests in the tooltip to copy their objectives and status to the chatbox if it's open.
Control-click on quests in the tooltip to share them with your party.
Alt-click on quests in the tooltip to add them to Blizzard's quest-tracker.

QuestsFu includes a replacement for the Blizzard built-in quest tracker, which can track more than 10 quests at a time. Right-click on it to adjust its scale and coloration. (Or alt-right-click if you've locked the tracker.)

Achievements show up in QuestsFu's tracker. Ain't that cool?

Certain thanks must be given to MonkeyQuest, which motivated me to write this by being everything that I wanted in a quest-tracker replacement while annoying me by putting a frame over a quarter of my screen.

Wowace project: http://www.wowace.com/projects/fu-bar_quests-fu/ (This will tend to have slightly more up-to-date versions.)
Changes:

4.0.1B:
  • Bump TOC for 4.2

4.0.1A:
  • Update libraries, to fix some errors people are getting in BC content
  • Bump some submodule tocs
  • Remove pointless AceComm embed that I missed about 18 months ago

4.0.1:
  • Make work with the 4.0.1 patch.

3.3.1:
  • Fixes for chat frame usage and gossip quests.

3.3:
  • Bump TOC
  • Fixes for WoW 3.3.0

3.2.2:
  • Quest log levels, while scrolling, even... (HybridScrollFrame needs to be documented somewhere...)

3.2.1:
  • Quest log levels, work again.

3.2:
  • Bump TOC
  • Fixes for WoW3.2 from D_Town
  • Fix quest sharing

3.1-beta4:
  • Tracked achievements show up in the tracker. I intend to improve on this, but it's functional as-is.
  • Don't auto-watch completed quests based on zone/subzone if remove-completed is on.
  • Don't unwatch quests that were watched because of watch-when-gained when the zone/subzone changes.
  • Fix unwatch-when-completed.
  • Embed the correct version of Babble-Zone.
  • Apply a patch for LightHeaded support from schultzr.

3.1-beta3: Wrong method call in PartyNotify, Tracker still showing up, and two missing embeds.

3.1-beta2: A few tracker bugs, mostly.

3.1-beta: Make work with 3.1. Probably. I switched to a new version of the library that interacts with the quest log, and it's possible I missed something along the way.

2.0.65647: 2.4. Minor changes to level display.

2.0.55071:
  • Finally got bored of waiting for someone else to fix Tablet, and fixed it myself. Alt-clicking will allow you to interact with the locked tracker again.
  • Fixed the taint problem.

2.0.54738:
  • TOC updated for 2.3
  • Quest levels broke because of the new low-level stuff; fixed (and made more efficient -- I wrote that *ages* ago)
  • Fixed LightHeaded error when viewing a quest LightHeaded didn't know about.
2.0.52898:
  • Add new module PlayerNotify to run all player quest announcements through SinkLib, letting you choose where you want to output the text -- defaults to whatever scrolling combat text you're using.
  • PartyNotify and Announce now have slightly more detailed options for what to announce.
  • Change PartyNotify to use SinkLib.
  • zhCN localization by yhwh. Updated zhTW (helium and NightOwl), deDE (gamefaq), koKR (sayclub and next96).
  • Hopefully fixed a memory leak and reduced bandwidth use in groups.

2.0.49757:
  • Update for 2.2
  • Various localization updates and bugfixes

2.0.44273:
  • Add PartyLog module, which will display the quest log of a party member. (Somewhat rough around the edges still; disabled by default.)
  • Fix memory leaks in Quixote comms code. (Mostly stuff that got missed in the big post-2.0 cleanup.)
  • Fix an error that would occur if an addon had altered the reaction level global strings.

2.0.43882:
  • Fix Comments and Detached modules requiring an interface reload to reappear if you disabled and then reenabled then.
  • Remove superfluous strings from some locales.
  • Update to deDE localization by gamefaq.

2.0.43812:
  • Add a new "detached" module, disabled by default, which can be used as a more customizable version of the standard fubar tooltip.
  • LightHeaded integration now properly displays rep gains and quest series.
  • Tablet settings like minWidth, maxHeight, and strata can now be changed without reloading the UI.
  • Fix alt-clicking on a quest in the main tablet causing an error if the tracker module was enabled, but "use own tracker" was disabled.
  • Fixed coloring of the class quest headers
  • Rewrote module system to be like AuldLangSyne's.

2.0.42647:
  • Add item tooltips in the detail panel.
  • Support newer LightHeaded releases.
  • Fix some memory leaks found with the new 2.1 profiling tools.

2.0.38378:
  • You can now add the quest giver into the default blizzard quest log.
  • Fix the dewdrop error some people were having.

2.0.36300:
  • Update for 2.1.
  • Let sound type be chosen on a per-event basis (e.g. Peon for progress, Peasant for complete).

2.0.34662:
  • This update is a massive rewrite of everything. There's now extensive use of modules, and whole swathes of functionality can be deleted entirely if you don't want them.
  • Allow choosing of custom colors for everything, instead of Blizzard defaults.
  • Add LightHeaded integration.
  • Add option for maxHeight and minWidth on the Detail and Tracker frames.
  • Add more sounds that can play on quest events.
  • Party notifications are much more robust.
  • More little tweaks and bugfixes than I feel like writing out.

2.0.29667:
  • Sort quests in the tracker by level.
  • Slightly better handling of autowatched quests between sessions.
  • Improve responsiveness for "show current area quests only".
  • Tweaks to highlighting.
  • Bugfix in some onload data checking.

2.0.28429:
  • Highlight more words in the quest objectives.
  • Fix escape closing the detail frame.
  • Fixes for bugs in automatic quest watching.

  • Unwatch autowatched quests when leaving the zone/subzone they were watched for.
  • Add options to the main menu for locking and changing the strata of the tracker and detail panel.

  • Add an option to play a sound when you complete all a quests' objectives.
  • The quest title in the detail frame will now behave exactly like titles in the tooltip.

When I just turn it off I get the Blizzard quest tracker to pop even though I have it turned off??? I will try looking at the auto quest watch and see if that eliminates the issue, thanks. Reading your notes it appears to be doing this:

Add an automatic quest watching feature, with options to auto-watch when you enter the zone a quest is in or the subzone it's in, when you get a quest, and when you complete all a quests' objective.

I understand that is ok except I don't want it or any tracking how do I turn all this off? I installed an older version and all the issues went away.

I really love this quest tracker. For some reason though it stopped auto populating the quest tracker.

Previously if I received or did any type of quest objective, it would either pop-up the quest tracker, or add the quest I just got something for, into the quest tracker.

I have right clicked and looked everywhere on this thing and can not find it.


Never mind all fixed now.

So disable it in the menu.

(Depending on what it is that's bugging you, you either want to turn off some things under "Notifications" or under "Auto Quest Watch". If you can't tell from the descriptions what's what, give me more detail here and I can tell you what to disable.)

Thanks for the info.

I'm not using EQL, but I DO have a ton of other mods installed (Auctioneer, CT_MOD, etc....) I'll see if I can't track it down by dsabling other mods and post my results.

Okay, I've examined this.

Any ideas?

Interface\\AddOns\\FuBar_QuestsFu\\QuestsFu.lua:868: table index is nil
Now, this one could be a weird timing issue. It's just about possible, if it's the last quest in your log and you're trying to watch it within a second of receiving it. (Honestly, I doubt it.)


Interface\\AddOns\\FuBar_QuestsFu\\lib\\Quixote-1.0\\Quixote-1.0.lua:227: bad argument #1 to 'insert' (table expected, got nil)
This, however, means that something is mucking up the returns from GetQuestLogTitle. It's an error characteristic of the returns being moved back to the pre-2.0.3 API, which royally messes with anything that tries to extract meaningful data from that function -- in this case it stops me recognizing which quest log items are headers and which are quests.

I'd blame EQL off the top of my head, because it went through a few revisions right after 2.0.3 came out that had this problem, and it wouldn't surprise me if you had an older version. It was fixed a while ago, though. (Or it might be some other addon, of course.)

Since I hadn't gotten a reply to my earlier post yet, I've been digging in the code some. Almsot looks like the Quixote library functions aren't working properly (In the case of the like 868 error, QuestsFU is querying Quixote for quest details, and it gettign back a nil table)

Help! I really like this addon, too! Seemed to work fine up until around the time WoW 2.0 or TBC came out.
You using any other quest addons? (The problem reported in your earlier post is reasonably consistent with something else hooking some of the important quest log functions and messing up their returns...)

I can't seem to figure out how (if there is an option) to make the text size bigger, seeing as my resolution is 1200x800, i tried making fubar itself bigger, but that didn't work.

if there isn't an option to make the text size bigger, could it be implimented? i would very much appreciate it.

Post Possible Bug

Greetings,

If this has been stated previously, I apologize. I have QuestsFu and love it over MonkeyQuest, however the problem I am experiencing is when my quest log indicates 21/25 and I want to pick up more quests, it says my quest log is full. Is this a known issue?

Has it something to do with using the tracker in the mod and not the blizzard one?

Hope this can or will be corrected if others are experiencing it as well as I love this mod.

Regards,

Marc31

The stock UI Quest Tracker reverts back to original position when I add quests to it, even though CTMods changed the anchor of the tracker. Could it have anything to do with QuestsFu?

I think you are right. I tried replacing the Tablet-2.0.lua in the new version with the one from version 2.0.26806. My blurry text issues went away.

Love the new sound bit when completing quests. Makes me want to request that another sound bit is used when you accept quest. The orc one that says "More work?"
