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.

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.

No screenshot, because nothing LOOKS different.

The issue works like this. If I open my bank in Combuctor, and Altoholic isn't loaded, it just works. Everything's normal.

If I have Altoholic up, the buttons in Combuctor's bank don't work -- they highlight as if they would, but they're unclickable. If I switch tabs in Combuctor, and switch back, they work.

I messed around with Iriel's DevTools, and discovered that there's a single extra frame being created which is over the Combuctor buttons, and has only one component -- a hook for "UpdateTooltip". So I did a bit of searching by disabling and enabling addons, until I found out that if I disable Altoholic, the frame in question disappears -- and so does the mysterious behavior.

To reproduce: Have Combuctor, Altoholic, and DevTools. /dtframestack, and then try to use the bank. Note how there's an item in the frame stack just ABOVE the Combuctor button, but if Altoholic is gone, so's that item.

This clashes with Combuctor. If Altoholic is installed, there's layers over the Combuctor bank buttons preventing clicking on them (workaround: Switch tabs in Combuctor and switch back).

To all:

There is an issue in 3.0.002 that will cause various error messages if one of your alts gained a level since you installed it. I will shortly post an update that fixes this issue. Make sure to follow the instructions in the changelog to determine whether or not you should clean your saved variables and reload your characters.

In short: make sure to update to 3.0.002b, as this issue will come bugging you at some point.

@whizkid: I sent you a reply by mail.

edit: file uploaded.

Not really working. I now run some tests with only BugGrabber and Altoholic installed and it gives me a lot of errors. I will try to send information by email (screenshots and lua errors), maybe you can fix it.

Thanks

I use the built in focus frame, and this happens only when i set the focus with the right click menu. If i set the focus just with a /focus command, it works fine.
Otherwise an excellent addon, thanks for sharing it!

Edit: I had a clean install, no previos savedvariables at all.
I basically never tried to use "set focus", so I'll try and see if something happens on my side as well (probably yes). Thanks for reporting, I'll fix this as soon as technically possible

@Ruana: glad you like it

Re: Re: Tooltip Question

Thaoky, I loaded Altoholic last night, and I am in love. That you show me the number in the guild bank in the tooltip as well as my own characters inventory has sold me on it entirely. If I had only known about it earlier!

This has been requested a few days ago on curse, it's a good idea and I really think the feature will make it to the addon, most likely in the next release.

I found the cause for toe LUA errors I postes some posts earlier. Altoholic is fine, it has been caused by EQCompare which is broken with 3.0.2.

The strange thing is: For testing I disabled all Addons but Altoholic (and ACP of course) and did a reloadui. This did not get rid of the error caused by EQCompare, even when it had been disabled. Only a complete WoW restart with EQCompare disabled from the beginning fixed it.

Re: Tooltip Question

Altoholic does this, it shows how many copies of an item your alts have in their bags, bank, mail or equipped. Guild bank is included too + if you have alts into many guilds, you can configure which guild banks you want to display or not. Can also be hidden/shown: item source (where it drops), item id, item level.

I'm inviting you to give it a try, you should not regret it

.. oh, and if you have suggestions, they're welcome !

Tooltip Question

I currently use Sanity, and one of the things I love about it is I can scroll over any item in a bag or bank, and see if an alt has that item as well, and how many. This made things very easy to find herbs while trying to level inscription last night! Does this mod do anything with the tooltips, or am I just going to be out of luck if I do make the switch to Altoholic?

(apologies if this double-posts, wowinterface is under heavy load!)

Re: Errors when MouseOver Items in Bag

Hello,

You can post the details here, I don't mind. Make sure to identify if altoholic is really the cause of the issue (test by disabling all other addons), or if the issue is in fact a conflict with another addon.

A detailed error message is of course necessary, and in extreme cases, a screenshot may also help, unless it does not bring more than the error message. Let me know more and I'll be able to help

Thao
