Altaholic provides the secondary features so I'm planning to discontinue development of AKA unless there's a lot of demand.
AKA allows players to specify a nickname that will be seen in chat by other users of the addon regardless of which character they are currently playing.
[Guild][Nelorb]:(MyNickname) So tell me a story...
Shift-clicking on the character name brings up a tooltip listing all of the know 'alts' in addition to the regular /who information.
Event creator nicknames are shown on the Calendar.
AKA tracks the multiple characters in a given account and provides mechanisms
for sharing character information with other players running the addon.
As you log into each character, its information is added to your personal roster and shared with other players running AKA.
Because the nickname is added to the chat by the addon, and not actually sent in chat, it will not conflict with addons which watch chat such a DKP or Suicide Kings mods.
Character data is transmitted using the 'addon' guild channel.
Version 2 adds the option to set nicknames using guild notes. Check the options panel for different methods.
Extract the files into your World of Warcraft Interfaces/AddOns directory.
In WoW, type /aka to bring up the interface window. The first panel shows which players you are tracking. Clicking on the OPTION tab allows you to change your nickname and create new communications channels for non-guild sharing.
Log into each character to automatically add its information to the list.
Special thanks to the ISCA Alliance guild and the other guilds of the SLACK alliance on Whisperwind for their patience during the months of beta testing.
