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

It seems that only when a quest giver has multiple quests (active or not) is when the error occurs when the dialog window is set on the selection of multiple quests to discuss with an NPC. The error does not occur on any other dialog window, or if there is only one quest.

Hitting OK on the error box makes it go away, but the quest icons are not updating in the way this mod is for... so the nil glitch is something interfering.

Ahh... well they also have "(low level)" next to quests... but in the case I was looking at, all three quests offered/active all said "(low level)" next to them. However one of them was bright a gold exclamation icon. Maybe it still had an inkling amount of XP to gain, but was still considered low level?

Its confusing whatever it is !!! LOL. I'll figure it out here soon enough... gonna go into a new area with actual yellow/green quests to get (I was in the barrens on a level 36 toon... *ahem* hehe).

Thanks for keeping this going and up to date.

Getting an error when going to a quest giver who has multiples some active some available.

DamnQuestIcons.lua : 33 : bad argument #1 to trim (string expected, got nil).

Also, with DQI off, it looks like blizzard has some sort of greying out of the exclamation mark going on or something. Cant figure it out. I went to a quest giver who has three quests. Two were active, 1 wasnt... none of them completed. Yet one in active was gray gold, while the other was bright gold. No other quest icon mods running.

So, not sure what is up... but Blizz did change something I think.

Thats because it "brute forces" it to try and see if it's the correct quest, it's not perfect.

Pretty much, it's mostly a pain to deal with the quirky-ness of how Blizzard does quests.

The times I notice when icons show up incorrectly now, are for those where you are to go talk to someone about something. They don't show up as completed in your journal before you talk to the person, so then DQI doesnt know it is basically a completed a quest.

You know how those "Go deliver this thing to this person" quests show up as completed in your journal the instant you get them? Well, those seem to show up with the proper icon from DQI.

Honestly, from a logical point of view, I dont know how you can fix it so that it knows those talk-to quests ARE completed the instant you talk to the person. Right now it just shows a gray icon for it when you talk to the person.

Sort of flukey aye?

heh, 'should' well, it 'dont'. :P I know, I use EQL.

All I can say is I love your mod, but with your currently uploaded latest version, it does not work with EQL at all. With the modified code I added, your mod does work with EQL. - Finally I myself can use your mod.

Leaving the modified code there for you, should you 'choose' to support us EQL users.

If not, doesn't bother me cause I got it working for EQL and will continue to use the modded code. lol :P

Re-downloaded your latest DamnQuestIcons to see if it would work with EQL, it didn't.

Added the code I provided below in the previous post to it and it worked again with EQL.

The link below is your latest DamnQuestIcons.lua with the EQL code added. =)
