Damn Quest Icons  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: r20090805
by: Shadowed [More]

Ever hate when you're questing and you have 20 quests in your quest log, and you need to click through 2-3 different panels to find out which one is the one you've completed? This mod solves that by graying out the "?" icon and the "*" bullet point on quest turn in panels when the quest isn't completed yet.

Updated getglobal -> _G
TOC Bump

Date: Sat Jun 13 18:09:11 2009 -0700
* CLRF

Date: Sat Apr 25 07:30:48 2009 +0000
* TOC bump, previous update was 20300 should probably indicate it still works given it's almost been two years

Date: Sun Sep 7 18:18:43 2008 +0000
* Improved color code stripping, which I stole from Industrial, who stole it from me!

Date: Wed Nov 28 09:46:00 2007 +0000
* Switched methods of doing text checks to just strip out everything we don't like, if the check fails because a mod does something special you're out of luck

Date: Wed Nov 14 09:34:14 2007 +0000
* Fixed a bug caused by WoW 2.3 due to quest text now having color codes wrapped around them, moved to GetToThePoint's method of checking quest names by storing the original as it's added instead of going off of the GetText() results. Should be a bit more accurate hopefully

Date: Sat Nov 10 22:11:49 2007 +0000
* Updated all TOC information to 20300, added revision info to the version field, also the author field is now consistent instead of using 5 different character names

Date: Mon Nov 5 01:38:33 2007 +0000
* Fixed quests with ( and ) breaking the checks

Date: Sat Oct 27 18:11:33 2007 +0000
* Fixed quests with dashes breaking checks if only one part of it has brackets in it (For example, Electro-Shock Goodness)

Date: Tue Oct 9 23:12:52 2007 +0000
* Added check so quests that have no objectives are automatically considered completed, some quests like the "return to blah" aren't considered complete, but they are in reality

Date: Mon Oct 8 22:18:04 2007 +0000
* Fixed up the logic so we specifically use the correct one needed depending on the mod (if any) being used to modify quest information

Date: Sun Oct 7 03:29:08 2007 +0000
* Trying an improvement to the complete detection so it works better

Date: Wed Oct 3 03:42:58 2007 +0000
* Apparently, isActive means isAvailable

Date: Tue Oct 2 22:51:46 2007 +0000
* I'm 99% sure I actually got it working this time
* Hopefully fixed rows not being reset to no gray scale if they aren't a turn in quest that we've accepted
* Changed to the SetDesaturation that Blizzard provies in UIParent.lua incase the players graphics card doesn't support it normally

Date: Mon Oct 1 04:51:54 2007 +0000
* Hopefully fixed a case where icons would show up as gray regardless of being completed or not

Date: Sun Sep 30 17:16:35 2007 +0000
* Added another string match check this should cover for both different methods of modifying quest functions and text

Date: Sat Sep 29 23:39:16 2007 +0000
* Improved to also gray out the quest bullet point for the current quest/available quest/ect panel

Date: Tue Sep 25 20:57:47 2007 +0000
* Toc updated to 20200

Date: Thu May 31 18:30:06 2007 +0000
I have no idea what I changed, but whatever

Date: Wed May 23 19:00:35 2007 +0000

No not the ones on mouse. Even the ones in the quest text thingy. Some show "!" when quest is finished.

*EDIT*
Well after testing for hrs theres still a problem , I know you tryed realy hard trying to find out what the problems are.. Now what happends is even when the quest is complete it still shows gray when it should be a gold "?" Not all thew time but some..Not sure if this is becouse of Blizzards bugs in game? I want to thank you for your time and effort into doing this addon...

Maybe this extra info will help? Trying to say I think it's some 2.3 change and not your addon specifically.
Yes, they did specifically change stuff with 2.3, but other changes were done due to those. A new method (which is r399) is being tried to see if it fixes it.

I'd like to chiime in that "yes" as well... only loading up DQI, and hitting a quest giver with multiple quests, I get that nil error. Doesnt happen on singular quests. This started happening with 2.3, and your last couple updates for 2.3. So either its the last couple updates, or its something in 2.3. Either way, its an error and only occurs with just DQI loaded.

Does the error persist without any mods except DQI enabled? I see nothing wrong with Quest Initiators that it'd break this.

Unable to find it on CG or WoWI, where did you find Quest Initiators v1.3 from?

Re: error over and over and over

Stranglethorn vale, Rebel camp,
talk to Sargeant Yohwa,
the quests are Bad Medicine and the second rebellion

Hope this helps you fix it =)

Happening to much for me i have to drop this addon untill theres a fix=( I'll miss it but it wasnt working more than half the time
Sadly, the main reason I can't get it to work fully is I have to deal with incompatibilities that other authors create by modifying it.

Given I can't replicate it, are you using any sort of specific mod that modifys the gossip frame?

Unfortunately my problems with the dark yellow icon persists. I've now come to the conclusion that if I reload UI it will always show the proper icon afterwards. I'm using the latest version. Hope it helps.

I'm also getting the same error as tralkar with 'trim' stuff. It appears when I speak to a quest giver which has several quests available. Could also be when they have "Current quests" and "Available quests".
