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 !).

Yes it is possible (I've done it in the past), but makes packaging a hassle.
Addons are developed more or less independently, and don't have an unified loader, like mine.

Thanks for the addon!

I have a suggestion for a new grid: All those one-time-lootable objects per character from:
Is Another Man's Treasure
Riches of Pandaria
Treasure, Treasure Everywhere

PS: Can you tell me how the Companion Grid works, does it show only the character that learned a pet? Anyway, what is the point now for the Mount and Companion Grid since most of the stuff is already accountwide? Do you have any plans for them?

EDIT: And is there an option to keep track of who can still loot World Bosses?

5.4.009 uploaded.

Many minor fixes in datastore.
Several fixes in DS_Mails, double entries should no longer be there, and problems related to merged realms should also be completely fixed.

Also reworked the profession scanning routine. On my machine, datastore_crafts used to miss some scans (especially the first after logon), I tried the technique used by AckisRecipeList, and I had better results, but still not 100%. The approach used by ARL was better than mine though, so I built on it, until I could improve results.. now I'm at 100% valid scans on my machine, that does not mean it will be perfect on yours, but it should be a serious improvement.

Please give me feedback on this point, as I suspect results may differ on installations other than mine.

Thanks !

Thaoky

Edit:
@captainv24: I think Blizzard mentioned providing something like this in WoD, as they already have a GUI for toys/vanity items, this feature should be in the game soon, so I won't invest time adding it myself, sorry !

Question Seeing heirlooms I don't have ... ?

First of all: thanks for a great addon !

Recently I have been collecting heirlooms for various alts I'm playing with. Now, Altoholic solves one big problem I always had: where did I leave my heirlooms. So that is great.

Now I was wondering: is it possible to add to Altoholic (or build next to Altoholic) functionality that shows what heirlooms I do not have yet?

I have been keeping lists outside of the game, but well, that is terrible.

If you aren't using 64-bit client, amount of the memory you have installed is irrelevant. It simply can not address more than 2Gb.
But this is irrelevant.
Please, close WoW client, go to it's directory/WTF/Account/<YourAccount>/SavedVariables and delete everything related to DataStore* there.

Also, if it's related, one of my characters on my main play server is not listed when I look at the summary (my druid). When I am on my Druid, only my warlock is listed in the summary. I am at a loss at what to do, and can't seem to find the answer. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Once you've done that, make sure your addon settings atre proper, login with each character at least once, and check if it is still an issue.

Question Datastore Errors

ALOHA!

First off I have been using Altoholic for over a year and love it, and wish I were utilizing it's many functions more effectively. That being said, for the past week I have been having an issue that I can't seem to resolve.

I am pretty novice at add ons so some of this may be easy to fix but I haven't been able to get it going. About a week ago I started getting datastore errors on log in saying my computer doesn't have enough memory to load. Specifically it named "Quests", then when I disabled it, it said "Pets". My computer has 10GB of memory, so somehow I don't see that being true. I looked in the add ons control panel in game for Altoholic (memory used) and it listed all but the main Altoholic and Summary as disabled (approx 3MB being used).

I just updated to 5.4.008. I have reset all data, cleared my WoW cache file but I don't know what else to do really. Also, if it's related, one of my characters on my main play server is not listed when I look at the summary (my druid). When I am on my Druid, only my warlock is listed in the summary. I am at a loss at what to do, and can't seem to find the answer. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Mail Bug in 5.4.008

Found a bug in the latest version:

When I mail something between my own characters when both sender and receiver are in the same guild, the mail items get doubled. The copy stays in the mail list as if it was in the mailbox even after opening the mailbox on the receiving character, and even after taking out the sent item(s). The only way I have found to remove the copy from the list is to Clear All Entries in the mail options for that character. Until I do that, the tooltip when cursoring over the item I sent includes the copies that it thinks are in the character's mailbox and also in the total owned count.

I believe this is likely related to the long-standing but minor bug that has the items in the receiving character's mailbox be 1 day less in duration than it should be initially. That is, instead of showing 30 days 23 hours, the receiver's mailbox will show 29 days 23 hours in the mail list right after sending, and it would tick down from there until the mailbox was viewed on the receiving character. Now it seems that the mail with the correct duration is being added in addition to the mail with the 1 day less duration instead of overwriting it.


EDIT: Noticed a likely related issue after posting that: When sending mail between my own characters when they are not in the same guild, the mail does not show up in the receiving character's mail automatically until their mailbox is viewed.

Daily Quests grid resetting early

I love your addon! I use it heavily!

Only had one problem with it so far:

I've been seeing the Daily Quests grid get cleared early when I'm up late enough to see it. Then if I do dailies between then and 3AM Pacific time, they will still be in the addon's grid after they have reset in game. Rather confusing.

I don't know exactly what time the addon resets it. Maybe it is using 3AM in the time zone of the computer rather than the Pacific timezone?

I just upgraded to the latest version from 5.4.004, and it looks like the bug is still there. (I looked for an update after I saw it reset early last night, then did a daily afterwards and that wasn’t cleared when the dailies reset in game.)

Re: Re: Merged realms

Appologies for not saying what I mean. I was under the impression that you could link realms on altoholic once they've been linked in game, causing the realm list to display as "Ravencrest - Uldaman" and showing all characters on both realms under one header. If I misunderstood that, that's fine and won't bother me. But I thought it would be a nice feature, seeing all characters that can actually trade items under one header, rather than searching through all the realms that I have random alts on.

They aren't merged. They are still different servers.

Merged realms

Am I doing something wrong here? I've used this addon for years, but I've only ever played on one server. Now I play on two because they're merged, and I thought Altoholic could track that they're merged? I've sent a mail from one server to the other with no change, I'm updated to the latest version, am I missing something?

Everything else is wonderful, and not being able to merge realms is only mildly inconvenient, doesn't break anything.

If I could favourite this AddOn a second time, I would.

Glad to see you back, Thaoky; and very sorry to hear about the tough year you've had. Hopefully some good luck comes your way soon. Stay strong and keep being great.
