Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.1.006
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.

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.

6.1.006 (08/05/2015)

- Updated list of archaeology projects with WoD projects. I apparently messed up and lost the file that contained the update in 6.1.001, it's now ok.
- Moved several UI templates to their own folder.
- Completely rewrote the Blizzard's DropDownMenu widget to use my own version.
I was tired of some of the constraints of their implementation, and of the loss of time it caused me every time I wanted to use one.
So I invested some time in making it my way.
- Account Summary -> The amount of uncollected garrison resources now appears in yellow when resources exceed 300, and in red when they exceed 450.
- Account Summary -> Added icons with drop-down menus to filter your list of alts by faction, level, profession and class.
- Account Summary -> Fixed the expand/collapse button that did not work anymore after the complete rewrite of the pane.
- Achievements lists updated ! (Thanks Bluemage29 for your help !!)
- Fixed a Lua error when viewing the Guild tab with an character not in a guild.


6.1.005 (20/04/2015)

- The garrison mission tooltip now shows a red exclamation mark '!' when no missions are active.
- In the account summary, the last column used to sort the view is now remembered, and is restored when you log in again.
- Character's tab: fixed a lua error when mousing over the professions' icon of a character that does not have 2 professions.
- Account Summary: modified the garrison followers pane to show followers at iLvl 675 and a column for their weapon/armor iLvl.


6.1.004 (11/04/2015)

- Fixed sorting the account summary by "Last Online" where the order was sometimes incorrect.
- Added an option to show the tooltip counters without details (no 'equipped', 'bank', ..). Disabled by default.
- No longer wiping the list of followers before scanning them.
- Added a tooltip to the garrison resources in the account summary, it now shows when resources were last collected, and when you will reach the maximum of uncollected resources.
- Fixed incorrect tooltip after multiple searches in the search tab.
- DataStore_Garrisons: Some clean-up to properly report active missions.
- The garrison mission tooltip that shows a '*' when missions are complete now shows it in red if all active missions are complete.

6.1.003 (07/04/2015)

REMINDER: If you are looking for a free Heroes of the Storm Beta key for the European Region, you should check the comments section on Curse & WoW Inteface.. I still have a few keys to give away.

- Fixed a few lua errors in the account summary tab.
- Added Draenor LFR dungeons to the Grids->Dungeon Finder pane.

6.1.002 (06/04/2015)

- Updated scanning of currencies (honor points), total no longer needs to be divided by 100 since 6.1.
- Updated the garrison followers pane in the account summary to show followers with an iLvl greater than 660.
- DataStore Characters: updated GetRestXPRate() to account for Pandaren extra rest xp.
- Fixed Auction House scanning, and cleaning of expired auctions.
- The summary tab has been fully rewritten so that all 6 panes use the same frames.
This will make the addition of future content much easier.
Some new features here and there while I was at it (quality of life improvements mostly), I'll let you discover them :)
This is an update I wanted to do for a long time, and there are more things planned (more filters).. the other tabs will get an update too.


6.1.001 (25/02/2015)

- Added support for Garrison missions ! Warnings are not in yet, but available and active missions are now visible in the characters' tab.
Note: Active missions can only be correctly tracked if the mission is started with this version of Altoholic, so currently active missions will be visible, but their expiration will not. Sorry, this info is not provided by the game, I have to "manually" keep track of it.
- Fixed the spam of mail expiry warnings, this time for good (hopefully ! feedback appreciated on this one!).
- Now refreshing the follower's pane immediately when the followers' list is updated.
- Updated list of followers not recruited at the inn.
- Updated list of archaeology projects with WoD projects.
- Cleaned up the .pkgmeta of DataStore modules, my sources tell me this should prevent some problems with the Curse Client :) (Thanks Myrroddin !)
- Removed "already known/could be learned by" information from tooltips for companions, as they have been account-wide for a while.
- More code cleanup.

Note: I made several attempts at fixing the double guild bank counters in the tooltip, thanks to all of you who sent me their SV files, the issue is now clear.
Nevertheless, a complete perfect fix is not yet possible, as Blizzard does not provide the real/full realm name to which the guild actually belongs.
The best I can get in my case is "MarécagedeZangar" when I actually expect "Marécage de Zangar", and that value is nowhere to be found in the API.
Long story short, I have to come up with a way to work around this that does not force you guys to respect weird conditions to make it work..


6.0.004 (09/01/2015)

A massive code cleanup was performed, it should be mostly transparent for all of you, but code maintenance will be greatly improved for me.
I also simplified a lot of XML frames with new conventions that Blizzard had activated certainly a while ago, but that I never had time to change.
It's not finished, but it's a step in the right direction :)

- Many options were not saved correctly, this has been fixed, as a result, these options have been reset (tooltip options, etc..)
This options bug had, among others, impact on the account sharing feature that couldn't be launched anymore, Thanks Elfana for helping me on this !
- DataStore_Garrisons: Fixed scanning collection of garrison cache resources. It could occasionally be wrongly reset when getting resources from other sources.
- DataStore_Garrisons: Followers are now stored based on their id's, instead of their names. You will have to check your missions' table again with your alts to update follower information.
- DataStore_Garrisons: added a slider to configure when the reporting for uncollected resources should happen (350 -> 475)
- Grids -> Garrison Followers: added a drop down list to filter followers on whether they are collected, not collected, and if they were recruited at the inn or not.
- Garrison blueprints now appear in red if already known, I applied the same rule as for BOP recipes from Garrison trainers, thus any BOP item with "Already known" will appear red in a merchant frame.
- DataStore_Agenda: fixed another Lua error at logon introduced with previous fix. (Thanks again SpareSimian!)
- DataStore_Mails: added an option to report mails about to expire to the chat frame, in addition to the already existing dialog box. This will allow you to see on which alt the mail can be found. Please keep me informed if you detect real bugs thanks to this.


6.0.003 (27/12/2014)

- DataStore_Garrisons: fixed a bug where saved buildings are deleted from the DB.
- Added tracking of uncollected garrison resources. They can be seen in the currency pane of the account summary.
- Added a warning when uncollected garrison resources are >400 on a given alt. There is an option to disable this warning if you want to.
- Added Garrison-related achievements, now listed in a proper way in the achievements' tab.
- Checked recipes that kept appearing in green at garrison trainers.. there was no bug actually, recipes stayed green because they could be learned by other alts.
What I did instead is to check if a recipe is BOP. If it is BOP, and already known, it will appear in red.
- Removed mounts from the addon, as they have been account-wide for a while now. The icon is still there as a placeholder in the grids tab though.
- DataStore_Pets: removed all mount-related functions and data tables.
- DataStore_Mails: fixed a bug where the addon kept complaining about old mails about to expire. This one is long overdue, thanks to Wispor and Elfana for helping me on this one !
- Fixed "Player not found" message. (Bug 779 / Thanks Phinar !)
- DataStore_Achievements: fixed an error caused by achievements with invalid id (as returned by the game's API). (Bug 792 / Thanks SpareSimian)
- DataStore_Agenda: fixed a Lua error at logon. (Bug 792 also / Thanks SpareSimian)

6.0.002 (24/12/2014)

Seven Year Anniversary Edition.

Today is the seventh birthday of Altoholic, and I wanted to take a moment to thank the community for its patience and support.
2013 was a difficult year on a personal level, and 2014 was extremely busy at work.
As you have all seen, the amount and the pace of releases was not the best in these last 2 years, nevertheless, I remain committed to keep the addon alive, even if it will sometimes be on a "best effort" basis.

I had originally planned to make a release a bit earlier, but life came in the way, and truth be told, it's not a bad thing that the release happens today, as the last time I actually made a release close to the addon's birthday was for the 2-year anniversary.

To celebrate this wonderful day, I am releasing the first garrison-related features, it's not much, but it's a step in the right direction. I hope you'll enjoy it.

I will be peacefully resting at home for the next 2-3 weeks with some spare time on my hands though, and I intend to work on garrison missions + resources, and also on several fixes that are long overdue.

Enough said.. let me finish by wishing you all the best for 2015, for you and your families, and of course for all your alts :)

.. on to the changelog !

- New DataStore module : DataStore_Garrisons !
Note: You have to visit the missions table to scan followers, it doesn't work otherwise.

- Grids tab: added a pane for Garrison buildings.

Notes:
- Garrison missions/resource tracking are coming, no need to ask, it's high on the priority list :)

I should've mentioned this - relogging entirely also didn't fix it.

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

- Loaded game, noticed Altoholic wasn't displaying info.
- Tried /console reloadui - no change.
- 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...

Added to my list, I'll look for ways to provide your with this info for each faction.
Great news! Keep up the fantastic work.

Re: 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
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.

Thanks, but let me tell you, suggestions are not a burden at all

I am wondering.. really, I only made minor changes in .007b vs .007, and on top of it, there is absolutely no call to StartAttack() in my code.. You guys know Altoholic is not a combat addon.

This smells like the SetFocus issue where a specific addon is reported guilty when it is not. I'll make tests on my side, but there must be something else, really

If you make tests on your side, let me know what you find out.

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!

Yeah, something like that, I'll have to do some digging to see which professions use books, their spell id, levels, etc.. nothing impossible, it just takes a bit more time than standard recipes

3.0.007b has just been released, it's a bugfix release that corrects the various lua errors mentioned below.
I can think about two ways.
If you can see that character know certain rank of profession spell, it's pretty straightforward.
If not, it's a bit of trickery: if skill limit of that said spell is more than 25 points ahead of what the "book" need, you know it.

99% of my probs are now solved m8 good job. I re-downloaded the addon (even though it has the same file name) and overwrote.

Just have Shocker74's prob which is no real biggie.

@Mambaru: I'll give a look at it, thanks for reporting

edit: after checking, I think you might still be using the bad 3.0.007. It may be the case if you downloaded it right after I uploaded it. For a short period of time (just before the upload is approved by an admin), you would still be downloading the wrong version. May I ask you to download it again and tell me how it works ?


@Arctae: You're welcome, I'm really glad to see certain features in action, and they wouldn't be there without your suggestions. The addon has already gone further than what I had in mind when I started it, and that's also due to you guys

@Laumac: cooldowns are already tracked, they're in the Skills pane when you mouse over your skill level. But now that you say it, I'll see if I can do something to make them more visible. One frame for all cooldowns of a character may feel a bit empty, but a combined frame for all alts may make it more useful. I'll play with it and see what's the best approach.

Regarding the localization, normally the frFR is up-to-date, and I usually do it myself on the fly. But if you (or someone else) want to help, what I'd need is to complete suggestions. I haven't had the time to look for solid profession guides as well as reputations, so if anyone has good sources..

Note: progress will be slow for a good week, so the next update will arrive in 2-3 weeks at least. It may also vary depending on when 3.1 will be on the PTR.
