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

I'm using 1.0.5 but I also have a conflict with Quest Level (I guess). It never shows a gray icon. I use an older version, which I have modified slightly myself. Here's the entire code, maybe you are able to tell the problem by looking at it
Code:
QuestLevel_original_GetQuestLogTitle = GetQuestLogTitle;

function GetQuestLogTitle(questIndex)
	questLogTitleText, level, questTag, suggestedGroup, isHeader, isCollapsed, isComplete = QuestLevel_original_GetQuestLogTitle(questIndex);
	if ( isHeader or not questLogTitleText ) then
	else
		local leveltag = level;
		if (questTag) then
			leveltag = level.."+";
		end
		if (suggestedGroup > 0) then
			leveltag = level .. "G" .. suggestedGroup;
		end
		questLogTitleText = "["..leveltag.."] "..questLogTitleText;
	end
	return questLogTitleText, level, questTag, suggestedGroup, isHeader, isCollapsed, isComplete;
end

Looks fine to me, if anything was causing the issue it's the extra + and G<num> parts that were added.

Ok, I just realised, it doesn't work anyway. No other addons enabled. Though this is on the PTR, as I don't have access to the live realms atm.

I'll have to check and see if something changed on PTR, but it works fine on live.

Extended Questlog

Can you please take a look at Extended Questlog compatibility
http://ui.worldofwar.net/ui.php?id=4188

I love that addon, but your addon doesn't seem to work with it

I would like it very much to be able to use yours too.

Agreed with last post. I love the idea of greyed out quest icons, but there is an incompatibility with extended questlogs. I have tried Extended Questlog referenced in the previous post.

Thanks for a simple and convenient mod, btw...

Hi there. I like the idea of this mod. Is there any change at all at making it compatible with Expanded Quest Log?

By the looks of the comments, a great number of people use Expanded Quest Log. I too am one of them. ^_^

Thanks

I'll deal with it somepoint since I'm leveling again, but I still blame the author of Expanded Quest Log since they take the easy way out and just hook the function instead of modifying things normally.

Hi SHadowd, if there is anything we can do to modify Expanded Quest Log to get your add-on working with it that you know about, please let us know (when and if you find out). I'll be the first one to open up a .lua file and edit EQL to get this add-on of yours working. =D

Seems to work fine with Double-wide quest log.. Same effect as EQL without all the extra headache

Doublewide doesn't modify any quest functions, just moves things around mostly which is why it worked fine without changes. EQL modified things like the gossip page and such which is what caused issues.

Tried Double-wide quest log - didn't like it.

I like EQL. ;(

But I also like DamnQuestIcons...

But if a choice, I'll stick with EQL with no DQI working. ;(

Just wish there was some other way to match the completed quests.

[Edit]

In the latest version: r238, the ? icons are now greying out with EQL - it wasn't doing that before, they just remained yellow. But in r238 they do grey out. They still however don't go yellow if the quest is completed. Is there any way to check what EQL title is? Is there a way to merge DamnQuestIcons into EQL's coding?

Thx

Using r238 the icons appear in a slightly darker yellow colour only.

I'm using Elkano's (I think..) Quest Levels and have had trouble with this addon before only working sometimes, but then it would at least display the grayed out icons as correctly gray.
