Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.2.007
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 : [email protected]



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.

6.2.007 (12/09/2015)

- Added Garona & Harrison Jones to the list of followers not recruited at the inn.
- Fixed guild bank tab icons displayed as a red square instead of the tab's icon.
- DataStore_Achievements: Fixed a Lua error at logon.

6.2.006 (17/08/2015)

Imported all changes made in the unofficial releases made during my absence.
Many thanks to those who took it upon themselves to provide fixes for all those issues.
To prevent confusing users, I will resume the version number based on Zwixx numbering, so if you used a version up to 6.2.005, you have to upgrade to this version.
Some fixes made by me before the release I was supposed to make after 6.2 are also included, so make sure to upgrade.

- DataStore_Reputations: added 6.2 factions. (Thanks Zwixx)
- DataStore_Inventory: added LFR loots. (Thanks Zwixx)
- DataStore_Garrisons: Fixed a Lua error when scanning followers. (Thanks Zwixx)
- Fixed tooltip related issues. (Thanks Zwixx)

- DataStore_Achievements: Fixed an issue where an earned achievement was not immediately saved to the DB, and was only read at next login.
- Fixed a silly bug that prevented you from searching professions.
- Account Summary -> Clicking on the level of any character toggles the display of decimals. This option is remembered across sessions.
- Account Summary -> Clicking on the AiL of any character toggles the display of decimals. This option is remembered across sessions.
- Created some extra templates to simplify the code (more on the way.. this happens bit by bit)

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..

There's your mistake. The database file is also called altoholic.lua but is located somewhere else:

WTF / Account / Your_account / SavedVariables / Altoholic.lua

The structure of the file is like this:

Code:
["data"]
  ["your faction"]
    ["your realm"]
      ["guild"]
        ["guild name 1"] = {             -- remove from here
          .. content comes here ..
        }                                      -- to here
        ["guild name 2"]
If you want to remove the bank of "guild name 1", just remove that part. I think I'll implement a possibility to delete a bank from the gui soon.

In the lua file, there are 3 levels of data under a realm (they can be collapsed if your text editor supports this), one of which is "guild" and is the one to delete.

I'm glad you like the mod

Yes indeed, I've been playing a bit less lately, not too much of a problem since I've reached my goal (9x70), I'll grind some more money for wotlk (target: 20k gold, currently 14.5k), but other than that, I'm only raiding or doing some heroics.

1) I'll have to make a test, it's probably nothing more than a missing refresh, should be fixed quickly.

2) It was the case in the earliest versions, I assumed the character was logged out at an inn, but this has been implemented and tested quite a while ago, maybe the recent changes impacted it. Can you give me an example of wrong data ? (current xp, current rest xp as reported by another addon, like x-perl, current level)

Hehe, I had just updated before checking back here. Looks like that change is in the latest version, so I'll test it and let you know if anything comes up.

Also, thanks for the great support you provide. I know it takes time away from other things (namely playing the game), so it's very much appreciated!

Edit: Working well so far. Two little things I noticed:
  1. If I change the option to display max rested XP as 150%, the change doesn't show in the "Summary" panel until I close and reopen the window.
  2. It seems Altoholic calculates rested XP with the assumption that the character is logged out in an inn. (At least that's my guess, since the values are about 4x what they should be.)

Can you please try a simple thing ?

Edit Altoholic.lua in the addon's directory, and change line 1512 from :

return self.ClassInfo[ self.Classes[class] ].color

to :

return Altoholic.ClassInfo[ Altoholic.Classes[class] ].color


I fell upon a similar problem yesterday, and it seems that under certain conditions, the self pointer is not valid anymore. It definitely fixed the problem on my side.

edit: if it still doesn't work, I just uploaded the latest version from files.wowace.com

Well, if you tell me that you still see an alt that isn't supposed to be there after cleaning the SV file, then I guess you deleted the wrong SV file ..
I only have the one SV file (plus backup) in the WTF/Account/{ACCOUNT}/SavedVariables directory.

When the error occurs, I can't see any data for any characters on the current realm, but a valid alt still appears from another realm. All inventory data shows up properly; only items in the character area are missing.

Anyway, as I made a few changes in my version to change the GUI, and part of these changes should reduce the risk of such error, which I really think is due to a corrupt SV file. Let me know how things turn out.
I'm going to experiment a bit, starting with replacing the color return from line 1512 with a static color.

I agree that it's probably a bad SV file; I just can't figure out what's corrupting it, since it happens after a "fresh start". I also can't find a predictable pattern to reproduce it yet, which makes it even more frustrating.

If I can't discover any more useful information, I'll just wait until the next version arrives to see what happens.

Edit: Argh, I probably should have mentioned this before, but I use Altoholic without externals. Maybe there's something wrong with one of the libraries on wowace?

I forgot to copy it before I quit, but I do know it was the 1512 line error from BuildCharacterInfoTable, and originated with the ToggleUI-OnClick thing (since it happened when I hit the minimap button). It still showed my bank toon on another server (only alt I've logged in on that isn't on my main's server), if that helps any.
Well, if you tell me that you still see an alt that isn't supposed to be there after cleaning the SV file, then I guess you deleted the wrong SV file ..

In earlier versions, I was registering an SV file per character, which was basically useless (it was there since the beginning, I wasn't sure if I'd need it or not back then), so are you sure you're not deleting this one ?

If you're deleting in WTF/account/your_account/savedvariables/Altoholic.lua, you're deleting the right one. Be sure to delete Altoholic.lua.bak as well.

If you're deleting in WTF/account/your_account/savedvariables/YOUR_REALM/character/Altoholic.lua, you're not.

Anyway, as I made a few changes in my version to change the GUI, and part of these changes should reduce the risk of such error, which I really think is due to a corrupt SV file. Let me know how things turn out.

Hi Thaoky, just thought I'd follow up with the errors I reported. I still get that error (and a few more), but after some testing of various scenarios, I'm pretty sure something's messed up on my end (probably with my SV file). Anyway, just for completeness (and so I don't spam this page a with wall of bug traces), I'm going to list those errors in the same bug report just in case you want to take a look.

Re: Re: Bean Counter Problem!

The way it works is simple. Whenever a mail is read, I can decide to only check attachments or to include the body of a mail as well. If for instance you have a mail like this:

"Hi, blablabla ..."
Attached gold: 10G
Attached items: 3

There will be 3 entries in the addon for the attachments, 1 for the gold, and 1 for the mail text (gold+text are sometimes combined if I remember correctly). If you disable this option, you will simply not get the mail text. All the rest will works normally.

The reason why this is configurable is that the API function that reads the body of a mail marks it "as read", which is disturbing for some users, and obviously for some other addons as well.

I'll add tooltips to most options soon, it will be more obvious.

Talking Re: Bean Counter Problem!

Hi,

Your idea worked perfectly. As soon as I disabled "Scan Mail Body (Mark as Read)" it all works perfectly. However what are the consequences of disabling this part of your addon will impact something else as ussually disabling something like that has a cause and effect problem or maybe in this case not. What ever the case its working great and I am thrilled that it is makes life so much easier thanks heaps. If you think this is all that needs doing then maybe a little note for people so they are aware and don't bother you if they use auction mods to make sure to disable that part of the addon. Just a suggestion.

Thanks so very much
