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.

Paypal donations accepted at : thaoky.altoholic@yahoo.com



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.
- DataStore_Quests: fixed WoD compatibility.
- DataStore_Containers: Added support for the new void storage tab.
- DataStore_Containers: Added support for the new reagent bank.
- LibCraftInfo: updated for WoD.

5.4.009 (08/08/2014)

- Uncommented the code that actually deletes linked realms.. silly me !
- DataStore_Crafts: reworked the processing of events that actually trigger profession scanning.
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 : Read addon version from .toc
- DataStore : Current character/guild key can now be used by character/guild based methods
- DataStore : added a few methods to support overriding methods
- Many minor fixes in DataStore_Achievements, Agenda, Containers, Crafts, Inventory, Mails, Talents
- DataStore_Quests : fixed tracking of completed quests

5.4.008 (27/07/2014)

- Fixed MoP factions showing up as numbers.
- Suggested leveling zones are back in the account summary.
- Added an option to reset links between merged realms (some realms were marked as linked though they were not)
=> DataStore dropdown in the Account Summary
- Added an option to completely reset the DataStore databases, without having to manually delete the files in the SavedVariables folder
=> DataStore dropdown in the Account Summary

- Added an option to remember the faction filter across sessions. (Grids -> Reputations)
- Added an option to remember the currency filter across sessions. (Grids -> Currencies)
- Added an option to remember the companion filter across sessions. (Grids -> Companions)
- Added an option to remember the mount filter across sessions. (Grids -> Mounts)
- Added an option to remember the tradeskills filter across sessions. (Grids -> Tradeskills)
- Added an option to remember the archaeology filter across sessions. (Grids -> Archaeology)
- Item counts for guilds on merged realms should now be visible too (sorry can't test this myself).


5.4.007 (24/07/2014)

- Added missing faction "Emperor Shaohao".
- Altoholic: removed LibBabble-Faction

- DataStore_Inventory now triggers extra events for client addons.
- DataStore_Auctions now triggers extra events for client addons.

- Fixed bugs related to full names (name+realm) in the Guild tab.
- Added a pane in the account summary to show the PVE & PVP currencies.
- Added tooltip support for connected realms.
Note: DataStore needs to learn about connected realms, to do so, send 1 mail to an alt on a connected realm.
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.
- Updated the AiL tooltip, level 60 & 70 dungeons are now commented (tooltip was getting long), and level 90 was added. (Thanks Pseudopath on WoWinterface)
- Fixed issues related to scanning void storage (Thanks Lombra !)
- Several minor fixes (Thanks Lombra again !!)

Re: Removing an alt

thanks for your prompt reply. I found I also needed to clean the reputation area of the SaveData file as well.

looking at how you did your Data storage I am very impressed, Great work and thanks again for the quick response.

Code:
AltoholicDB = {
  ["account"] = {
    ["data"] = {
      ["Alliance"] = {
        ["Your realm"] = {
          ["char"] = {
            ["character-to-delete"] = {       **Remove from this line**
 ....
            },                                         ** to this line **
Restart the game, and the alt won't be in the list anymore. This makes me think that I could support this feature in the addon at some point (*added on my todolist*)

About lockipicking, good idea, I'll add it as well.

I'll make the addon available via the wow ace updater as well, should happen soon.

Need to be able to remove an alt

please help with how to remove an alt from the list.

I have been using your mod for a bit and I have really enjoyed it.
but I deleted an alt this week so I could change the name of another (long Story) but I can not find a way to remove an alt form the database without removing the whole database.

also, if you could include Lockpicking as a secondary skill. the only thing I wish I knew that I do not is what rogue I should send a box to to help level it's lockpicking up.

thanks for your Great work.

Tassleoff

also, another good way to distribute this mod is through Ace updater

by doing that you can post the bleeding edge current code and allow more of us to Troubleshoot it with you.

Update

I found a solution for the information displayed twice in the tooltip, there was a post about this on wowace and I managed to implement it successfully.

Fred, I happened to get the same bug as yours, and since you had it 1 day before me, I found the cause and fixed it too. I think I'll post an update tomorrow. I'm working on integrating babble libs to support more languages right now.

Loving this so far!

One issue I'm having is that the tooltip is displayed twice (well, information is displayed twice in the same tooltip)

i.e
Mageroyal

Tylius: 5
Total Owned: 5

Tylius: 5
Total Owned: 5

<other item stuff from mods/default ui>

Bag update

It seems that I've been a bit too conservative about bag updates, I'm looking into this issue right now. I'll post an update soon, when this one is fixed and the loot table is complete (should happen tonight or tomorrow).

I'll look into all your suggestions + fubar integration after all that

edit: 2.4.003 uploaded, both bugs submitted by Quokka & Fred should be fixed. I identified a small issue where the source of an item was displayed twice on certain recipes. I have no idea why this happens, but since it's not blocking, it will have a lower priority. It remains on my todolist though.

How ever, we have 7 listed

I was thinking today, I have a mod called RestFu..if you was thinking to make a Fubar toggle, maybe have a look and integrate the code.I would put a lot of useful info at the tooltip on Fubar and it could open Altoholic too

Re: Thanks for the input !

@Quokka: wow, thanks a lot for your input, there are a lot of good ideas there, exactly the kind of suggestions I wanted to read

In the first part, you talk about an action tracker, I assume you meant Auction tracker, if so, that's a good idea, I hadn't thought about that. I haven't had a look at what it's possible to do with the AH, but if there's no technical barrier, that should be possible

It will take some time to implement all this, but there's real added value, so that will come.

Regarding the arena sets, it's normal, I reworked the AtlasLoot 4.04 tables to only keep item id's, but that's a lot of files, and I'm not fully done with the last part (sets & pvp), I hope to finish this for the next version.

@Fred: I guess the way I hooked the tooltip function doesn't like other addons too much, I'll check which one is the problem and how I can arrange this. Thanks for the feedback.

edit: Fred, you said you had this problem with a chatlink, does it also happen when you simply inspect another player for instance ?

edit2: I think I identified a potential cause of bug for what you reported, a nil itemLink when I did not expect it. Not related to function hooks, hopefully (much harder to debug).

edit3: Fred, since I could not reproduce the problem, could you please try the following for me ?

Open Altoholic.lua at line 2687
Change these two lines:

local itemName, itemLink = self:GetItem()
local itemID = Altoholic:GetIDFromLink(itemLink)

into:

local itemName, itemLink = self:GetItem()
if itemLink == nil then return end
local itemID = Altoholic:GetIDFromLink(itemLink)

Save, restart wow & test if it's fixed. Thanks

Hasn't happened since, but I will try it

Re: Re: Thanks for the input !

Thanks Quokka. The coding part should be fine, I'm a full time programmer, and the wowace community is great

If I need art at some point (and I probably will), I'll think about you, thanks for the offer, as I totally suck when it comes to gfx ^^
