Altoholic  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.0.002
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.

7.0.002 (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 !).

I mention this because the summary-pane problem briefly popped up again when I activated Altoholic with a reload UI, and then all was fine when I fully logged out and back in. So I thought it might be something worth looking at if/when you have a chance.
It actually depends, some information is updated at specific moments (for instance: when you manually open the altoholic window), while some other is updated when certain events are triggered by the game (BAG_UPDATE will provoke a .. bag update).

So yes, there are data that are updated only at login, and sometimes a reloadui will not be enough. That said, I've been testing this for quite a long time now and there should normally be no problem on that side, as I'm using reloadui all the time (and I mean ALL THE TIME).

However, the summary pane should never pop by itself, as it's not bound to any event. If you can give me more details, I can check if there's anything in particular that I can work on.

Planned, should be implemented in a little while.. development pace is a bit slow these days as I'm really busy, but I keep adding features bit by bit.. I'm currently working on adding sort buttons in the various panes.

Thanks so much. Got it to work... now then. This is an odd request... But it'd make life much easier.

Can you implement a toggle for which guild banks to show in the tooltip? See, I like being able to search the gbank... but I don't have access to all that and it's a little misleading.

Thanks so much for all your hard work on one of my favorite mods.

Ever.

Just tested on my machine, it works fine, but I think I understand what happened.. I update the "isResting" property when the event is triggered by the game, which happens when you enter/leave an inn. But for a low level character like your level 3, you've basically never triggered it, and I consider that the "isResting" property is true by default (which I'll change).

It's normal that you don't see it in the SV file when you're out, as nil values are not saved. So it's a very small bug on my side, just enter an inn once with your level 3 and it will be correct. Will be fixed in next version

Thanks for the follow-up, I appreciate greatly !

edit: if you want to fix it right away, edit the file core.lua, and around line 125 you'll see:

isResting = true,

change it to isResting = nil, (keep the comma at the end)

Delete the SV file to be sure, and the problem should be fixed.

Yes, that was missing from him (and a few other characters actually, but all were resting so I didn't notice).

I reset the file and tested with my level-8 hunter. He started out parked in an inn. (I logged out and checked the file at each change.)
- Log in and out, no isResting property
- Went out of inn: no isResting property
- Went back inside: ["isResting"] = 1
- Went back out: isResting disappeared
- Went back in: ["isResting"] = 1
Also logged back onto my mage, and he had no isResting property either.

Hopefully that helps you out a bit.

As a side thought, perhaps a new feature would be an indicator on the summary screen showing whether a character is resting or not. Probably could just use the resting icon, and maybe a gray icon if not resting, with no icon for 70s.

Once I log on to him, Altoholic shows his rested XP at 11%. Also, I'm positive I logged out with no rested XP, since he hasn't even visited an inn yet.
I haven't checked that part of the code for a while, and there is one thing I suspect that may go wrong.

Can you check one thing for me please ? in the altoholic.lua in savedvariables, look for the character you mentioned, and under :

["char"]
["your_charname"]

There should be a property: isResting = nil,
If it isn't there, that may be due to a savedvariables file not being reset for a long time. I suspect a small bug in Ace2 DB when the structure of the savedvariable file changes without actually resetting the data. If this is so, then I suggest you clean this file and reload your characters, if not, then there's a bug in my code x)

I'll test that tonight anyway.

I'll edit this post if I run across anything else. Thanks again for this mod

~Rinel
Do you have other addons that play with the tooltip ? It's probably due to that. A small screenshot may help too

edit: nevermind, dont post a screenshot, I just saw that I had the same problem.. and the weird thing is that it happens only on certain flowers and not on others .. I'm looking at this right now.

edit 2: bug found & fixed.

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.
