Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.0.006
by: Thaoky [More]

Hi, my name is Thaoky, and I'm an Altoholic

Altoholic is an Ace 3 addon written for people who dedicate most of their time to leveling alts, and who want to have as much information as possible in one addon. The main feature of the addon is the search functionality which allows users to search their alts' bags or loot tables in an Auction-House-like frame (see screenshots). All this with multiple-realms/accounts support.

About the addon & the author

I've been playing WoW since the European release, and I used to rely on addons like character viewer to check my alts' inventory, but since it was more or less abandoned and not always stable for me, I decided to write an addon myself and to improve the search feature as much as I could. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do

The addon has been in development since December 2007 and was officially released in late March 2008. It's still not final, and although it has considerably evolved since the initial release, there are still a lot of things I haven't had time to implement yet.
Please note that this is my first addon, and that English is not my native language.

Features:

- Languages supported: enUS, frFR, deDE, esES, ruRU, zhCN & zhTW.

- Account-wide data summary:

  • Characters' talents: Full talent trees & glyphs are supported for both specializations.
  • Money, /played, rest xp for each character, subtotals by realm, and grandtotals for the account.
  • Bag usage: see at a glance which characters should get bigger bags (bag size, free slots and types included)
  • Characters' skills: skill summary on one screen, namely the 2 main professions + the 3 secondary skills as well as riding. I may add more if there's demand. Profession cooldowns included.
  • Reputations: a list of all the reputations of the current realm's characters. You can see at a glance if all your alts are at least honored with Honor Hold if you want to get the new 2.4 blue PVP set. Suggestions on how to gring reputations will be available soon.

- View containers (bags, bank, keyring) of all alts, on all realms.

- Guild banks : You have 10 alts in 10 different guilds on the same server, all of them with access to a guild bank ? Not a problem, you can see them all here.

- E-mail: allows you to see which alts have mail without having to reconnect them. The addon will tell you when mail is about to expire on a character. Threshold configurable (up to 15 days). Multiple realm support as well. Mails sent to a known alt (one you've logged on at least once) will be visible in the addon without having to reconnect it.

- Equipment: See the equipment of the current realm's alts in one screen. Very useful when purchasing stuff for your alts at the AH. Multiple realms supported. Right-clicking any equipment piece will allow you to find an upgrade, this feature is similar to the official wow armory feature, and is quite performant, even though it doesn't match the accuracy of the official one.

- Search: the most important feature of the addon, it uses an AH-like frame to display search results. You can either search bags on the current realm, on all realms, or a loot table.
The loot table is a table based on AtlasLoot, but which contains only item id's, and therefore keeps memory usage minimal.

The Search menu allows you to find items based on their name (even partial), level, type or rarity, almost like at the AH. It is also possible to search known recipes.

- Quest Log: See the quest logs of all your alts, as well as an indication of which alts are on a specific quest. Clicking on a quest link in the chat log will tell you which alts are on that quest.

- Suggestions: Currently, only profession leveling suggestions are available when mousing over your current level in a specific profession. Suggestions are based on the leveling guides posted on the official US forums (credit goes to their respective authors). The addon also suggests you where to quest/grind xp depending on your character level.

Suggestions were also added for the most recent factions. More to come later.

- Auction house: You can see which auctions/bids you've placed with an alt without being logged in or being at the AH.

- Professions: You can browse all known recipes in a thotbot like frame (see screenshot).

- Mounts & Pets of all your alts.

- Achievements are tracked for all you alts (see screenshot).

- Guild Members: a list of your connected guildmates, along with their alts (if they're using Altoholic too), and their average item level. Clicking their AiL will also allow you to "remotely" inspect their equipment.

- Guild Skills: a list of altoholic users in your guild, along with their alts and direct profession links. All professions are available in one click.

- Guild Bank tabs: a list of altoholic users and the time at which they last visited the guild bank. If you haven't visited the guild bank for a few days, you can remotely update your local data without going to a capital city.

IMPORTANT NOTE: As with every new expansion, many things have changed in the API, and it is REQUIRED to clear your Saved Variables for the addon.
This means cleaning the following files in \WTF\Account\<your_account>\SavedVariables : Altoholic.lua & All DataStore*.lua

There WILL be bugs if you use your old files without cleaning them first.
Some fixes to work around API changes are too time consuming, so cleaning is required. A meager price to pay once per expansion.


7.0.006 (03/08/2016)

- DataStore: Fixed guild identification when the character is on a different realm than the guild.
- Grids: Updated Archeology races and items for Legion.


7.0.005 (31/07/2016)

- DataStore: Fixed a lua error when getting AutoCompleteRealms.

7.0.004 (31/07/2016)

- Fixed issues related to connected realms (guild bank, tooltips, etc..)
IMPORTANT NOTE: a guild bank will not be scanned if it's on a realm that is not known by the add-on.

So if you have characters belonging to a guild from another realm, and you have no character on that realm, you will have to create a character on that other realm, and log him on once, just to identify the realm.

The API provides absolutely no way of matching a short realm name to a long realm name.
If your realm is a small name without spaces (like 'Dalaran'), then this might seem like a non-issue for you, but it makes it impossible to know precisely to which realm a guild belongs.
Basically, my workaround is about making the addon know that "Marécage de Zangar" is also known as "MarécagedeZangar" by getting rid of spaces.

This is an extremely imperfect solution, and I sincerely dislike it, but the API does not help in any way.
The solution should hopefully work across all localizations, but I can't promise anything.

Wanna help ? Relay this topic on the US forums :

http://eu.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/17612943218

and kindly bump..

7.0.003 (27/07/2016)

- Profession level cap raised to 800.
- Fixed the counts not being shown in the item tooltip when mousing over a craft reagent in the tradeskill UI.
- Fixed a Lua error when clicking on a recipe link in the chat log.
- Fixed a Lua error when checking the guild bank tab.
- DataStore_Talents: Rewrote scanning of talent information, UI will come back in a future release.

7.0.002 (20/07/2016)

- DataStore_Garrisons: Fixed a few Lua errors.
- DataStore_Mails: Fixed the invalid attachment counts in the tooltip (note: you will have to visit the mailboxes that have a wrong count to correct it, it's not a display error, it's a database error)

7.0.001 (19/07/2016)

- REMINDER : CLEANING YOUR SAVED VARIABLES IS MANDATORY FOR 7.0 (YES I'M SHOUTING ! :D)
- Various fixes to support 7.0 API changes.
- Glyph UI has been removed.
- Tabard UI has been removed.

Note : I've been extremely busy with big projects & responsibilities at work in the past months (year ? .. almost!), but 21/07 is national day in Belgium so it's a long weekend over here, I'll have time to follow-up on 7.0 and release extra changes.
I expect the rest of the year to keep quite busy given our current planning, hopefully 2017 should be quieter (and I'll have a long holiday in December, yay !).

I noticed this error when I was trying to access the GuildBank tab on an unguilded toon. Thought it might be useful to you.

BTW, issue I saw several times (I appreciate it was before DataStore), it still sometimes forgetting known recipes.

My question is this: It is even worth it to purge and rescan known recipes when you can't forget... damn, you can >.< I forgot.
Changing specialization triggers deleting of all specialization-related recipes.

It's still an issue with grey crafting for me. It stutters every time I craft something like bolt of frostweave or smelthing chunk of ore.
I'll try it without LSW in near future, and see what happen.

Which headers you are referring to in your "expanding/collapsing" phase? I was very curious all time, but forgetful when reaching forums.

@artphilia & AnrDaemon:

Indeed, the skill up thing is a known issue. At least it was an issue before DataStore. Let me explain.

Before DataStore, I was doing scanning the skills every time a CHAT_MSG_SKILL event was triggered, thus every time you gained a skill point. This implied expanding/collapsing headers which in return triggered another event to which other addons might have reacted, hence the potential slowdown.

When coding DataStore, since I was aware of the issue, I implemented a small way to avoid scanning everything. I only update the skill level of the appropriate skill by parsing the message (faster, does not trigger other events). This is applied in DataStore_Skills & DataStore_Crafts (and also reputations, but that's another story). The only case where there might remain a delay is when you gain a skill point after making a yellow/orange craft (ie: you gain a point, I scan tradeskills to get updated colors).

AnrDaemon, you mentioned LSW, is it still an issue now ? Based on what I just explained, what was problematic in 3.1 should no longer be in 3.2 (unless the TS window is opened).

Do this help you figuring out what may happen ? I'd really like to understand what's going on here.

Would it be possible in the future to add a Guild Forum within ALT-O-Holic? A place where there could be a few separate forums for various things? This would replace going out-of-game for most guilds and their members and would allow guild leaders to utilize ALT-O-Holic to manage even more things in-game such as extended Guild Information, Rules, etc...

We were using GuildAds but are switching to ALT-O-Holic since it's data seems to sync much more easily.
I would say that this is clearly out of scope. It's a very good idea, but it should be an addon on its own. *IF* I ever to decide to do something like this, it won't be in the near term, as there is still a lot I want to add before.

.. that said, I'm not quitting wow anytime soon, and I'm a guild leader too, so who knows

A few things are planned, like the remote talent inspect, or remote achievements, and more. The one thing that is certain is that there will be more guild features, it's just that the forum can turn into a really big feature. If it sees the light of day, chances are it won't be in 2009.

But there is one problem now.

The Search function works on some chars perfect on other chars it strikes. I can klick on the search button and nothing happens.



I created several new Alts.... any kind of class and race.... the searchfunction never worked.
There will be another bugfix release tomorrow morning, I fixed 2 search-related issues.

Oh, the other addon I was talking about was GuildAds, can be found on Curse if not here. It'sgreat, but has some old-data synching problems for our guild for some reason, so we've moved to ALT-O-Holic for everything and am hoping the author would be willing to add a few more guild-related features to make it the ultimate in guild interaction / management.

It's not really direct to keeping skills, it's more of accessing them.
LilSparky's Workshop for example. Having them two working together is such a pain, i only accept it because i can't really live without both of them.

I don't know such addon. Care to provide a link?

On a more serious note, joke been told once is a joke. Twice is acceptable.
Multiple times - you are going to have people angry at you.

Write your own DataStore module and let altoholic syncronize it automatically across the guild.
Don't know yet if Altoholic allow guild-sync, though... THAT would be a request. Sorta.
Like... add *guild filter in authorisation pane.

Thanks. It used to only do it on every login which was perfect IMO.

I'm speaking about ALT-O-Holic... would love to see a few features added to it, like maybe having a place where Guildies could post up items they have on their character(s) they're willing to donate to guildies for crafts, etc...

Or be able to request item(s) they need. ALT-O-Holic can and is becoming the go-to Addon for Guild Interaction & Management. My guildies love it!

Had a hard time getting it to run, maybe with the localization issues, but now I'm happy, best thing in my eyes is the new Account Sharing features.

BUT (You knew there'd be a "but"): Every time my character gains a "skill point" (blue message, like job or weapon), I have a more or less severe lag, which is especially ugly in the field on low-lvl characters that keep gaining weapon, defense and that stuff all the time.

I assume that this is related to the new DataStore thing, any way to smooth that up a bit ?

I hope this is the right place for this. I absolutely love ALT-O-Holic and now that some more guild related features are in place, I was hoping to see if I could put in a request to go one step further.

Would it be possible in the future to add a Guild Forum within ALT-O-Holic? A place where there could be a few separate forums for various things? This would replace going out-of-game for most guilds and their members and would allow guild leaders to utilize ALT-O-Holic to manage even more things in-game such as extended Guild Information, Rules, etc...

We were using GuildAds but are switching to ALT-O-Holic since it's data seems to sync much more easily.
