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.

  • Use the Peon "work complete!" sound for quest completion.
  • Autowatch gained quests if they match the zone/subzone settings.
  • 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.

2.0.27117:
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Show suggested group size for group/elite quests in the detail panel.
  • Add config options for display of party member objective completion in chat or the messageframe.
  • Add option to announce in party chat when you advance a quest objective.

I found one minor problem when I have zero quests in my quest log (details in the bug report I filed).

Otherwise, nice addon! Its quest tracker is a definite improvement over the default one (Why couldn't Blizzard have made quest names and objectives wrap instead of truncating with a "..."?), and I like how it shows the quest level numbers, too.

When ever I update a quest the detached window pops up when I have it turned off in the modules part of the addon.

Re: Font Size in tracker?

Select a quest to track and then right-click the tracker. You should see "Size" in the second to last listing. Mouse-over it and then select your %.

Latest version beta 3 quests are not automatically removed from the tracker when the option is checked.

Also if turn off the tracker still shows I have had to delete the tracker folder to disable it.

I seem to be having an issue where the blizzard tracking is tracking inside of the achievement area, not sure why though, even while surpressing blizzard frames.

Any idea?

Any chance for QuestsFu to support the quest item in the tracker? The latest update fixed it to work with 3.1 but would love to have this functionality.

This works fine, but the "Surpress Blizzard output" doesn't seem to be working, do you think you could take a look at it? Thanks by the way for helping out.

FuBar_QuestsFu.zip version etc didnt change, nor TOC, as its not meant to be an update/upgrade or whatnot.

im just hoping that an author picks this up again... : /
I've given up on it; Quest Helper is better, in the end. :/

It even looks like the built-in quest tracking tool might be decent, too.

I somehow lost the ability to view any chat channels after patch 3.1 went live. I resolved it by disabling Questsfu. I don't know how my chat is related to this addon, but it is somehow. I really hope Questsfu gets updated for 3.1.
