Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.3.001
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.

7.3.001 (04/09/2017)

- Caged pets are now properly recognized in the inventory.
- Search tab : fixed caged pets not being returned in the search results.
Note: caged pets stored in the guild bank are not correctly visible. This is due to the game returning different item information for the caged pet when it is stored in the guild bank vs in your bags.
If someone knows a way around this, I'm all ears :)
- Search tab : fixed mythic keystones not being returned in the search results.
- Made some improvements to the emissaries' panel, progress is now shown for each alt/zone. Quests are now sorted by expiry time (closest to expiry at the top). Thanks Paintstorm & Caspianroach for the suggestions.
- Account Summary : Improved formatting of artifact power in the tooltip.
- Grids -> Sets : added some extra filters for sets (faction + PVP type).
- Characters -> Quests : the panel is being rewritten, but I have to face the facts, it won't be ready anytime soon, and the release has been delayed long enough.
If you cannot live with this panel, edit the file Altoholic_Characters\Frames\Quests.lua, and delete lines 219+220 in the Update function.
Note: rendering is primitive, you just have a list of quests, and the filter in the "Quests" icon does not work. Categories are listed, but that's all.
Sorry, I had hoped this would have been ready for 7.3 .. but Blizzard released sooner than I had expected.

7.2.003b (01/06/2017)

- Fixed minimap icon not being properly restored at logon.

7.2.003 (01/06/2017)

- Fixed a bug where searched results were not shown in the proper quality (ex: upgraded items).
- Changed the navigation of the characters' tab. In order to win some real estate for future updates, I have removed the drop down list that allows you to select the realm.
You can now select alts from other realms directly from the character icon.
- Updated Herb and Mining Nodes, that was long overdue. (Thanks 2TailedFox !)
- Fixed a lua error in the search tab.
- Fixed Midsummer achievements.
- DataStore_Quests: now tracking emissary quests
Notes about emissary quests:
- There are 2 places to view the status of your emissary quests: Grids -> Daily quests & Grids -> Emissary quests
- In the 'Daily quests' panel, you can view the emissaries that you have COMPLETED TODAY, they will be reset every day, like any other daily quest.
Since there is no way to determine when they should actually reset, it's the best compromise.
- In the 'Emissary quests' panel, you can view the emissaries that are in your characters' quest logs, meaning that these are the quests NOT YET COMPLETED.
Because the quest log is only scanned when you log on, make sure that you log on with your alts on a regular basis, otherwise you will see outdated information in this panel.
- These 2 panels complement each other, it is intentional that they show you what has been completed vs what has not.

- Brought back a name to the minimap button frame, goes against my principles, but I love you guys that much!
(the fear of an army of angry users armed with pitchforks may have changed my mind though :P)
- Added a new panel in the grids tab : Sets !
In this panel you can see all the transmog sets you collected, across all classes.
This panel shows you all set variations that exist, even some that are normally hidden until they have been collected (Tier 3, darkmoon faire, other faction ..).
If you were wondering what to do with all those marks of honor.. here is your chance to spend them :p
The whole thing was quite complex to implement and required a deep dive in the data, and a crapload of manual work.
Mapping the whole table of sets took me a few days.
Some days I believe Blizzard organizes their data in such a way in order to mentally torture addon authors..
But anyway, I'm quite happy with the result, and hope you'll enjoy it too :)

A few notes about this panel :
- Due to the amount of manual work, it is possible I have mistakenly copy-pasted a wrong set ID. If you identify one, please let me know.
- If you mouse over a set and see "Fetching item data ..", mouse away and over it again, this is due to the way the game handles the item cache. Nothing I can do about it.

!! Important tip for the crazy set transmog collectors out there (like me :p) :
I was not really sure if looting a given piece of equipment that is not for your class is actually registered into your list of transmogs.
While running Sunwell with my mage, I dropped a piece that was part of the warlock set, and it actually counted.
I could not see it directly in the addon, because I only read data for the current alt, but when I logged my warlock, the piece was definitely there.
It also means that if you are hunting for specific parts, you can run a legacy raid with alts having the same armor type.
That will not work for all pieces, but for some, it helps :)

It clearly does not work for weapon types you can't equip. I looted a nice bow with my mage, but my hunter did not have the transmog.


- Added a new library : LibMVC
LibMVC modifies the way frame templates are implemented.
Previous version relied on "class extensions", which were a first step towards a proper MVC pattern.
This is something I wanted to do ever since Blizzard added the 'parentKey' attribute in XML.
The current version is getting close to AngularJS and class extensions are now called controllers (as they should).
A goal I have had for a long time but never had time to implement was to support some sort of inheritance,
so that the OnLoad of a frame could call the OnLoad of the frames it derives from.
There is no way to do this natively, hence this new library.
Using AngularJS a lot at work has helped seeing clearer through this.
LibMVC also supports injecting services into controllers, as in Angular.
I have not decided yet if I will implement data binding, that might happen, but at a later stage.

This is 100% transparent for users. Devs on the other hand may be interested in checking the simple implementation.
The whole addon has not yet been corrected to support this, so those who are curious should check the Guild or Achievements tabs, they're pretty clean.


7.2.002 (28/04/2017)

- Fixed a bug assigning gained artifact xp to the wrong artifact.
- Fixed a Lua error when scanning an artifact's data.
- Added the faction Armies of Legionfall.
- Changed format of large numbers displayed in the Artifact pane.
- Added support for Nethershards and Legionfall War Supplies (Thanks AlexSUCF !)
- Sending a mail to an alt no longer update its last mailbox visit time
- Added Legion fishing achievements
- Moved enUS at the top of each locale.xml to load this locale first (never knew this was an issue :/)
- Valor currencies now being properly tracked

7.2.001 (29/03/2017)

- DataStore_Talents : Fixed a few issues when scanning artifact data (Thanks AlexSUCF !)
- DataStore_Talents : Fixed an issue when artifact XP was updated.

Note: I haven't had time to play much tonight, but I did not discover urgent issues. I'll keep testing tomorrow & Friday and will post a fix if anything break.
At the very least, I'll have to test the new reputation paragons to see if anything is broken on that side.

@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

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...

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.

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.
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!

There no info in the large box,like in the pics posted. As to the version the new one. Ive never tryed this mod before. I did hav it give me a pet ula error (as posted below) whin i unziped this.

Ok i deleated everything and reunziped it. Now it all shows up. Who knows =)
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

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.
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.
