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.

Credits

- I'd like to thank my guild, Odysseüs on EU-Marécages de Zangar, for assisting me since the earliest phases, thanks guys for everything you've done
- Thanks to the wowace community, you've been very helpful and this addon would not be there without the technical answers you gave me (especially Xinhuan, author of BankItems)
- Thanks to all the guys who are behind AtlasLoot, keeping the loot table up-to-date is a tremendous work, and the search functionality of Altoholic would not be what it is without your hard work.
- Thanks to Ayindi (wowace) & sLiz3r (curse) for the German translation.
- Thanks to NightOwl (wowace) for the zhTW translation.
- Thanks to Wang (wowace) for the zhCN translation.

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 !).

@vabock: can you please be more specific about what's wrong ?

@all: version 3.0.003 has just been released, it raises the level & profession caps. A few minor bugfixes have been made as well, and I should release 3.0.004 rather quickly, but it will merely be a data update (LK factions + loot tables). After that, I'm in for bigger changes, and the next release should take a while since I'll work on support for multiple accounts.

Ok, I've been looking into this issue, and it cannot happen due to Altoholic alone. Several people have reported it, and they all have these in common (versions may vary):

Code:
  AucAdvanced, v5.1.DEV.2530
  AucFilterBasic, v5.1.DEV.3745
  AucFilterOutlier, v5.1.DEV.3747
  AucMatchUndercut, v5.1.DEV.2531
  AucScanData, v5.1.DEV.3699
  AucStatPurchased, v5.1.DEV.3576
  AucStatSales, v5.1.DEV.2842
  AucStatSimple, v5.1.DEV.3576
  AucUtilAHWindowControl, v5.1.DEV.3311
  AucUtilAppraiser, v5.1.DEV.2530
  AucUtilAutoMagic, v5.1.DEV.3142
  AucUtilCompactUI, v5.1.DEV.2530
  AucUtilEasyBuyout, v5.1.DEV.3583
  AucUtilItemSuggest, v5.1.DEV.3108
  AucUtilPriceLevel, v5.1.DEV.2545
  AucUtilScanButton, v5.1.DEV.2530
  AucUtilSearchUI, v5.1.DEV.3655
  AucUtilVendMarkup, v5.1.DEV.2530
Can you please try without these (visit the AH to refresh the data for a given alt) ? And also tell me where you downloaded them, I tried to Auctioneer Suite, but there are less components in it than what's listed, so if I want to make further tests, I'll need this info

Thanks for your help.

Links of enchanting skill were changed.

e.g.

[Enchanting: Enchant Shield - Greater Spirit]

Sorry, I'm not good at English.

@Rinel: I assume Blizzard will eventually fix this in the future, I believe they already did fix similar issues with other widgets, but until then, it's really on their side.

@Arctae: About the tradeskill mats, it's a good idea, now that the recipe colour is saved, I could certainly do something easily.

For the pets, I can't make any promise, I need to check exactly which info is available. If there's relevant info, I'll do it in a way or another.

However, I advise you to create a small macro /focus, it will prevent the problem (tried & tested).

ah ok, then I shall go and poke blizz with a hot poker till it is fixed ^.^ and thank you for the macro suggestion, for some odd reason I never thought of using it macro style :\. Thanks again and I really love this mod btw

Suggestions / Requests

Altoholic has become one of my favorite mods, and it has to be the most helpful when dealing with my characters. I really like the ability to see in a recipe tooltip which characters need / know it. I used Book of Crafts in the past for that functionality, but have had issues with it, and the integrated display with Altoholic is better for me. One feature I miss from Book of Crafts is the ability to display which characters could use a tradeskill mat, and at what level. Say you mouse over a piece of Clefthoof Meat, and you have a character that the Roast Clefthoof recipe is yellow, it would show their name in yellow. So you know who could use it and what difficulty it would be. This helped me manage my bank character's inventory. I could see who I could send stuff to easily. I don't know if there would be a possibility to include something like this in Altoholic, but it would be very handy!

The other thing I think would come in handy is when mousing over a pet, showing which characters know that pet. I know you get the info from the pet frame now, so if that data could be referenced this way, it could help. When finding a pet vendor out there, or getting a drop, knowing where to send it could be a time saver.

Thanks again for all the great work on this wonderful mod!

Error Message

I just did a clean install today of this great addon but I'm still getting an error:

Interface\AddOns\Altoholic\Altoholic.lua:553: attempt to perform arithmetic on field 'level' (a string value)

This error only seems to affect the Summary tab and will not show any characters on that tab.

I'm currently running SUI and a few other addons that I can list if needed.

Thanks

In the mail pane, the amount of days until expiry is colored based on the remaining duration (red/yellow/green). This is fixed and is not related to any option, and you don't get any warning at this point.

There is one option (in the tab "Options") to determine the mail warning threshold (say 5 days).

At login, the addon will check all your alts to determine if any of them has mails that expire in less than the threshold. If at least one mail meets this condition, you will get a warning in the chat frame. At this point, it will be up to you to check the activity pane and see which alt in concerned. This is what I intend to change in the future.

You can't disable the warning, but you can set it to a very low value (1) if you want.
OK, that is what I thought.

I have mail that is "red" and under 5 days left before deletion and I'm not getting any warnings in chat.
