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.

5.4.009 (08/08/2014)

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 : Current character/guild key can now be used by character/guild based methods
- DataStore : added a few methods to support overriding methods

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.

@drwoods:
If you couldn't do anything "such as talk to a banker, cast a spell, etc..", then I really think this was caused by a lag issue, and the error message was just incidental. I'm interested in it though, if you ever face it again, let me know

@Atarius:
I intend to improve things like that in the future, but my priority is to add new features (ie: sources of information).

I'll work on the addon tonight, and maybe post an update if I can.

First of all, I love this mod. It's made keeping track of all my alts ridiculously easy. I was just wondering if you could implement some sort of sorting ability for the info frames, such as sorting by name/class/level for the character overview/bag views. I can't quite figure out why my characters are shown in the particular order that they are. Thanks for this awesome addon.

Guild bank error

Hi, I really like the mod. Gives me pretty much everything I can think of.

One thing I noticed is this. I'm using the latest version and when I try to put something in the guild bank I experience something very similar to the symptoms of lag. I place the item, but it doesn't appear in the guild bank slot. After that I can't do anything such as talk to a banker, cast a spell, etc. It stays like that for a while. Maybe a minute or so. Then everything comes back. The reason I'm mentioning this here is because the first time I got this, I got a pop-up error mentioning Altoholic. Unfortunately I wasn't able to copy the info down and I assumed it was just a result of lag. I then tried again and the same thing happened, but no error popup.

So for now I just wanted you to be aware. Its certainly possible that something else is causing it, and if it continues to happen and I can get the error to show again, I will post it. Just so you know, this is the first time I've accessed a guild bank since installing the app last week.

UPDATE: I had no problems at all this evening so I consider the error a blizzard lag problem.

Thanks,
Don

That feature (known recipes) is also planned.
I like the quest section too, I have 9 toons at 70 and I have the same problem, I'm cleaning Netherstorm & Shadowmoon, and it turns out to be really helpful

unless i missed something, currently professions only show if there is something in the bank pertaining to learning something for our professions like a design i have sitting in my priests bank but can't learn it til she's exalted. Can you implement recipes they already know? Would be helpful to me when i'm on my mule looking over designs wondering if my toon already knows it. I absolutely love the quests section, now i don't have to jump from one toon to another trying to find a quest someone is advertising for in a zone and pulling my hair out for which one it is. Bad memory plagues me and that is an excellent feature. All 7 of my toons are already 70 and have multiple group quests and that helps tremendously in that i dont miss out on it cuz i know right away who to get on.

please if you have time remember the lockpicking.

for those with multiple rogues that would be very helpful

even for those with 1 rogue, knowing the lockpicking level lets you know if you need to find someone else to pick your Boxes.

Small typo in frFR

I just identified a small typo in the frFR localization. If you're affected, you can edit localization_frFR.lua and search for this line

["Skinning"] = "Dépecage",

Replace the 'c' with a 'ç' , save the file & reload the game. Already fixed, but I don't resend the file right now just for that. .009 should come soon anyway, since I'm currently completing the profession leveling suggestions.

I hope you like the feature, suggestions are welcome as always

Known bugs:
- Rest XP will not be correct if you disconnect out of an Inn.

This is most likely due to this. You don't give me enough details to confirm it, but this is the only plausible explanation, as calculating rest xp for characters who disconnected at an inn has been tested & working for quite some time.

Should be fixed soon though.

Edit: Checked further .. there was indeed a multiplication by 100 to correct a rate that should have been removed .. sorry.

This is already implemented

Look at the screenshots, there's an "e-mail" menu.

Yeah I remember, I'm glad you're not experiencing any issue with the mod, but I can confirm that the bank issue is real. Again it should be fixed tonight anyway, and deleting the lua database WILL NOT be required, only checking the character's bank will.

I'm not too sure yet what I'll do with the bags, I don't think I will do something like onebag anytime soon, since it wasn't the original purpose of the mod, but I may always change my mind. My goal in the mid term is to provide more useful information to leveling-addicts, so things you can expect to see are : quest log, improved reputation window, improved crafting (craft leveling actually) info, an AH window, and improved mail. Once all that is done, we'll see

No matter what, don't hesitate to post the problems you may face or the suggestions, I'm really open to making this mod evolve, even if there are some bugs along the way, they won't prevent me from moving on. I'm the first user of this addon, so you can imagine that I don't release code full of bugs for my pleasure

Stay tuned
