Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.0.001
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.

Paypal donations accepted at : thaoky.altoholic@yahoo.com



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.

6.0.001 (17/10/2014)

- Added a pane in the Grids tab to track LFR lockouts across alts.
- Added support for the new void storage tab + reagent bank.
- Updated achievement lists.
- Updated tradeskills data (Grids tab)
- Fixed WoD related issues.
- DataStore_Reputations: fixed WoD compatibility.
- DataStore_Reputations: LibBabble-Factions is back.
Note : seriously Blizzard why on earth is GetFactionInfoByID no longer returning data for the opposite faction's reputations?
- DataStore_Talents: talents & glyph scanning is temporarily fully disabled. UI is still missing too, sorry about that.
- DataStore_Quests: fixed WoD compatibility.
- DataStore_Containers: Added support for the new void storage tab.
- DataStore_Containers: Added support for the new reagent bank.
- LibCraftInfo: updated for WoD.

5.4.009 (08/08/2014)

- Uncommented the code that actually deletes linked realms.. silly me !
- DataStore_Crafts: reworked the processing of events that actually trigger profession scanning.
Note: The current implementation is based (not 100%) on how professions are scanned in Ackis Recipe List (thanks Ackis :D).
So far the tests I have made show a serious improvement, but the way events are triggered may not be 100% consistent, especially with regards to the TRADE_SKILL_UPDATE event.
The addon should no longer miss scans (please report if you notice problems).
- DataStore_Mails: fixed some problems related to merged realms, it should now work without problems anymore.
- DataStore_Mails: fixed issues where mail attachments (sent or returned) could be saved twice in the recipient's mailbox.

Changes by ckaotik (Huge thanks !)
- DataStore : Read addon version from .toc
- DataStore : Current character/guild key can now be used by character/guild based methods
- DataStore : added a few methods to support overriding methods
- Many minor fixes in DataStore_Achievements, Agenda, Containers, Crafts, Inventory, Mails, Talents
- DataStore_Quests : fixed tracking of completed quests

5.4.008 (27/07/2014)

- Fixed MoP factions showing up as numbers.
- Suggested leveling zones are back in the account summary.
- Added an option to reset links between merged realms (some realms were marked as linked though they were not)
=> DataStore dropdown in the Account Summary
- Added an option to completely reset the DataStore databases, without having to manually delete the files in the SavedVariables folder
=> DataStore dropdown in the Account Summary

- Added an option to remember the currency filter across sessions. (Grids -> Currencies)
- Added an option to remember the companion filter across sessions. (Grids -> Companions)
- Added an option to remember the mount filter across sessions. (Grids -> Mounts)
- Added an option to remember the tradeskills filter across sessions. (Grids -> Tradeskills)
- Added an option to remember the archaeology filter across sessions. (Grids -> Archaeology)

- Added missing faction "Emperor Shaohao".
- Altoholic: removed LibBabble-Faction

- Fixed bugs related to full names (name+realm) in the Guild tab.
- Added a pane in the account summary to show the PVE & PVP currencies.
- Added tooltip support for connected realms.
Note: DataStore needs to learn about connected realms, to do so, send 1 mail to an alt on a connected realm.
The connection is understood both ways (realm A to B, and B to A) with a single mail.
If you are connected to more than 1 realm, send 1 mail per link.
Ex: for 3 realms, send 1 mail from realm A to B, one from A to C, and one from B to C.
The mail can consist of just text, no attachment or gold required.
- Added an option to show/hide item count from connected realms.
- Added support for mails sent to/returned from alts on connected realms.
Note: Realm names are packed ("Marécage de Zangar" => "MarécagedeZangar") by Blizzard, this is supported.
If you notice something weird with your realm, please report it.
- Altoholic: removed LibBabble-Zone
- Updated the internal loot table and removed duplicate entries also found in LPT.
- DataStore_Inventory: removed LibBabble-Zone.
- DataStore_Reputations: removed LibBabble-Zone.
- Removed leveling suggestions from the character level tooltip in the account summary, as this information is now part of the game's world map.
- Updated the AiL tooltip, level 60 & 70 dungeons are now commented (tooltip was getting long), and level 90 was added. (Thanks Pseudopath on WoWinterface)
- Fixed issues related to scanning void storage (Thanks Lombra !)

Quick question for you.

Does this addon support profession linking (say, for example, I'm on my druid, but I want to see the full list of my enchanter's profession)?

@Dulcea & Trixie1971: ok, I see there's demand for calendar features, I'll see what I can do about it, but as I said, don't hold your breath, I haven't looked into the API and don't know what is feasible or not yet.

@Drubear: The equipment pane should help you compare items in a specific slot with other alts, there's also a "find upgrade" feature if you right-click an item, and that's as far as I want to go with this pane. Regarding stats, I second AnrDaemon and suggest that you use rating buster, it does the job quite well, and I don't want Altoholic to step on its territory

So if I'm looking at leatherworking items with my druid LW, I can make my rogue the "current comp char" and see what the rogue is wearing in the slots. (Granted that's contrived as I use ArmorCraft for that... but you should get the idea.)

But it's not a deal breaker - I don't do that all that much and the utility of Altoholic is pretty wonderful. Keep up the good work!
Try RatingBuster... although it works for current character only, it clearly show you what's this piece of gear is all about...

I tried armory, and indeed, there are a few things that are common to both addons, but what makes the difference in my opinion is that Altoholic puts information in parallel (I like the bag usage pane a lot, for instance, I used to do that in excel before coding the addon ..). Other than that, I think it's a matter of taste

If there are things you'd like to see in Altoholic, let me know, I'm open to suggestions.

Calendar...

Even just the ability to view things already accepted would be helpful. I find that with two level 80s and a couple 70+, it would be extremely helpful to be able to view this from any character on that realm, rather than have to log onto each one every day to view when/who is running Naxx that night.

Anyway, I hope you'll consider adding this.

Thanks,
Trixie

This seems to be an ideal addon for me, especially with all the time on alts that I've been playing. I'd like to second the calendar request though. Not so much accept, but if there's a way in the server to track all invites from different toons you'd know who you had to log in as to accept said invite for us crazy enough to raid on multiple toons. Thanks for such an awesome addon!

There's nothing for the calendar right now, and to be honest, I haven't decided yet whether I'd implement something for it or not. Not for the short term anyway, I need to finish a few other things before looking into this.

Regardless of the outcome, thanks a ton for the update, Thaoky - keep up the great work. As far as I'm concerned, this add-on is mandatory!

You could have it screwed by not unzipping folder structure.
Often happened to users of WinZIP.

Can you please explain, what exactly you're looking for so you "cant get it to show anything", and what you've tried to solve this your problem?
Most notable, it should show you additional text in tooltips listing amount of this item your chars have. At least. If you have opened your bags and visited bank at least once on every char.

And which version of addon you're using?

@all: I've spent an hour an a half with a friend who was confronted to the blank data frame issue. Here's what I can say about it.

- It's 100% certain that it's not related to another addon.
- It's 100% certain that the DB is not affected, and that cleaning it will not help.
- I had my friend to login an alt on another realm, everything came back, he had no problem at all.
- I had him to connect various alts on the same realm but in different zones, where there are almost no people connected (Shattrath, starting zones, etc..), he had no problem at all.
- He logged in the character on which he initially had the problem (in Northrend, at prime time), and the problem came back.

After 1h30 of various tests, the problem went away by itself.

I asked him to gather some info for me, to test if all frames had been created properly, and tables correctly populated, but I couldn't find any recurring pattern. It's certain that game conditions impact Altoholic, and that it's an issue I'll have to address, but due to the rarity of this problem, it may take time before I fix it. I just wanted to provide you guys with some feedback about what I have discovered, it's not much, but it's hopefully a step in the right direction.


@Night0wl: I'll have a look at your suggestion and see what I can do about it.

I think a guild members shared database of LFG players reputations would be nice.

Just like the addon doiknowyou, but might be make it simpler. Just a note of a certain player<guildname>class.

note can be limited to 225 char actors to preserve database size.

display expect like this:

GUILDMEMBER______PLAYERNAME_______GUILD_____NOTES
me etc____________greedy man________xyz_______always need to any loot
Thaoky____________nice guy__________abc_______help me doing quest
