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.

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)

- 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.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Altoholic Windows Empty of Data

@Arctae, kolaf, Isidorius: I thought about it overnight (yeah, yeah, I know, I should be sleeping ) and came up with a few things to check. Your reports also give me something to work on, so I'll investigate it today.

Edit: I've made a few tests, couldn't reproduce the issue in normal use, so I cheated a bit and cleaned a few tables on the fly to see how the addon would react.. I think I found a potential risk and changed a few lines which should hopefully prevent this. Can you guys confirm me that only the 4 primary panes were affected (account summary, bag usage, skills & activity ) ?


@kasca: .. error when unzipping the archive ?? Well, I would say, either download it again from here, or go to curse just for the download. No one else has reported an issue about it, so I think I can safely assume that the archive I uploaded is not corrupted

Not hundreds, only maybe a dozen and some. Here's the kicker...

- Exited game, restarted - no change.
- Exited game, removed SV file, restarted - no change! (this one got me... I'd never seen it not display any info (for the current character obviously) after a DB reset)
- Tried /console reloadui - fixed.

Very weird. It occurred to me after the SV file removable didn't work, that I was going to start removing other add-ons to see if there was a conflict, but as you can see, the problem remedied itself before I got to that point. It is indeed a tricky problem to track down (and reproduce!).

If/when it happens again, the first thing I'm going to do it removing add-ons. Assuming the mere act of restarting WoW isn't "fixing" Altoholic sometimes, which could give false positives...
I reported this issue a while back, but since then, I have seen it very little. I ended up removing all of my data and reloading everything from scratch, and it was still happening nearly all the time. Even with Altoholic as the only mod loaded. Since the v3.0.006 release, I have seen it once, but after logging out and back in, it was fine. I am not sure what more to try... Since it's very intermittent, it's hard to try to nail down, and I know there are no errors shown.

Nice Addon

This addon looks very well laid out. I am going to try it tonight. Just an FYI I currently use the mod Armory, which does about the same things as your mod. But I think I like your layout better as well as the guild syncing. I also like the mail remembering if sent to a known alt, I think Armory doesn't know about the mailed stuff until the recipient actually logs in and views mailbox - until then it is in limbo. Maybe you can get a few Ideas for extras for your mod from that one.

If by any chance it happens more often for you than it does for me, you can try to find out what causes it (if there's any logic behind it that is) and let me know.

Typing /console reloadui should normally fix the problem, and you should not delete your SV file, as it's not related to the DB. My assumption is that ingame events are not always triggered in the same order on every machine, and that machine performance may impact this order. It's just a guess though.
Well I've tried reloading UI and to no avail on any occasion. I unloaded every addon except for altoholic and reloaded, but Altohloic again came up blank.

My system is a decent system: Quad Core processor, 3 Gig memory, 4 gig NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX video card.. I wish you luck with this, it is a excellent addon.

Yeah, i'm curious, too...
At first glance, I didn't saw that there's, in fact, no relation to Altoholic, other than error message text.
From the wild guess, I may think about variable used in global context where it shouldn't. I'd take a closer look at "self" definition in all addon code.

P.S.
I HAAATE Lua! It's absolutely uncontrollable language :/

Like the user some posts back, I've been having the problem where I open up the Altoholic main window and all the info is blank. I can't for the life of me figure out what trips this and causes it to happen, and so far it's happened only maybe 3 or 4 times in six months. I've never seen it happen mid-session, and have always noticed it happening upon a fresh game load/login.

For me, typing /console reloadui doesn't fix it. The only thing I've ever been able to do to fix it is wipe out the saved variables and start over.

[Edit: Interesting... in this case, deleting the saved variables did NOT fix the problem, so the blank info is persisting... some info is clearly there (it shows max # of recipes on a character, but displays nothing for example... mounts & companions work normally).]

Very frustrating
As AnrDaemon suggested, the problem might be due to a conflict with another addon, and that's something that I cannot test for you unless I know which addon causes it (if another addon is indeed guilty).

A few questions to maybe find a cause:

- You said /console reloadui does not fix it, but does logging out and back in fix the problem ? (that is, without cleaning the DB).
- If this does not fix the problem, it means it is somehow reproductible, so assuming that's the case, when you're confronted to the problem, can you try to disable all addons except altoholic and try again ?
Hoping you don't have 100's of addons installed, the goal is to find which one is guilty..

Also, as I said, cleaning the DB should not be necessary, particularly if we want to find the cause of the problem. A lot of trial & error :/

Oh - just some minor feedback off this topic.. the new behavior of combining Horde & Alliance (on the same server) in the same list is driving me bonkers. Same LIST is okay, but I would like a way to keep the 'sum assets' seperate (if I didn't overlook this option), so total 'server' cash doesn't include both factions, total # of items doesn't include my Alliance AND my Horde toons/banks/guildbanks, etc.

Either way, it's a great add-on! I literally can't imagine playing without it.
Added to my list, I'll look for ways to provide your with this info for each faction.

That's correct.

Account sharing & guild communication are two different things, and they are not related in any way. If you're a bit into programming, you'll see in comm.lua that the communication handlers are actually completely separated.

At the moment, you can only see connected users, but clicking the profession link of an offline member actually works (contrary to my initial belief), so it will be implemented in a future version.

You can't see the equipment of an offline player, and unlike the profession links I just mentioned, I do not intend to save a player's equipment in a cache, since it has actually no point, the info is interesting when you query it live, it doesn't have too much meaning if the player is offline and not even playing one of his alts.

With regards, to bags, quests and so on, you can't query them. My approach is that I accept to transfer information that could be visible outside of wow anyway, so things like your level, your equipment do not need security, especially in the context of your guild. The content of your bags however, is private, so it is not shared.

I do intend to share it in the future, but only with strong security, like for instance saying that you allow your guild mates to look into bag 1 but not into bag 2. Nothing is done, it's just an idea at this point, and I haven't made up my mind on the best option yet (suggestions are thus highly welcome, you guys know that by now ).

(I know, I should anyway, it IS a great addon.)
Basically, account sharing is about seeing everything from another account as if it was yours. Security is there, and once both parties have agreed to do the transfer, it becomes a matter of trust and is up to you guys

That said, if I'm getting you right, offline profession links will simplify your life once I implement them. Account sharing is fine, for it definitely serves another purpose

Altoholic Windows Empty of Data

Like the user some posts back, I've been having the problem where I open up the Altoholic main window and all the info is blank. I can't for the life of me figure out what trips this and causes it to happen, and so far it's happened only maybe 3 or 4 times in six months. I've never seen it happen mid-session, and have always noticed it happening upon a fresh game load/login.

For me, typing /console reloadui doesn't fix it. The only thing I've ever been able to do to fix it is wipe out the saved variables and start over.

[Edit: Interesting... in this case, deleting the saved variables did NOT fix the problem, so the blank info is persisting... some info is clearly there (it shows max # of recipes on a character, but displays nothing for example... mounts & companions work normally).]

Very frustrating

Oh - just some minor feedback off this topic.. the new behavior of combining Horde & Alliance (on the same server) in the same list is driving me bonkers. Same LIST is okay, but I would like a way to keep the 'sum assets' seperate (if I didn't overlook this option), so total 'server' cash doesn't include both factions, total # of items doesn't include my Alliance AND my Horde toons/banks/guildbanks, etc.

Either way, it's a great add-on! I literally can't imagine playing without it.

I'm a little confused about the guild features, and I've read the readme and this forum. Let me check my understanding.

The guild member tab displays only connected members using Altoholic, and lets you inspect them or their alt's equipment.

The guild skills tab lets you check the professions of other guild members...only if their connected? (and Altoholic users, I know) Or does it work through the account sharing feature, that once they've shared it, you can see it even if they're offline?

Will you be able to see their equipment when they're offline, too? Can you see anything besides equipment, like their bags, or quests, or anything?

I didn't get to play around with it much, and the two people who also have the addon were busy. So I kind of forget what the windows look like at the moment, and really didn't get to see them in action. But being able to see the skills offline seems like the best reason to get my whole guild to use it. And if that is true, or happens, then I'll definitely be back to make a donation!
