Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.1.003
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.


7.1.003 (10/11/2016)

- Added a row for the 12th character on both the achievements and grids tabs.

Note: that's a quick implementation, I still want to update a few things under the hood, but I figured you guys had waited long enough already.

7.1.002 (9/11/2016)

- DataStore_Quests: Fixed a tainting issue that prevented players from queuing into battlegrounds.
- DataStore_Talents: Added support for artifact data.
- DataStore_Garrisons: Added support for tracking of next artifact research.
- Summary tab: added an extra panel for artifact data.
- Summary tab: added a tooltip for all column headers, and some OnClick actions behind a few buttons.
- Summary tab: removed honor & conquest currencies, they were replaced by Order Hall resources & Seal of the Broken Fate.

- Fixed a few other Lua errors.

Note: I did some clean-up in the usage of localized strings in the Summary tab, some strings have to be translated, help appreciated :)

It happens here : https://wow.curseforge.com/addons/altoholic/localization/


7.1.001 (26/10/2016)

- DataStore_Quests: added an option to select the hour at which daily quests are reset.
- Updated the lists of achievements with the new ones added in Legion.
- The talent panel is finally back. You can now also see the stat priority when mousing over the specialization name.
Note: The priorities come from Icy Veins, although I have not respected them 100%, based on my own experience, view, and discussions with guild mates.
They are meant to be an indication for classes you do not play too often, and I do not wish to enter religious discussions about who is right or wrong, or about which stat is actually better :)
ex: in some cases, Icy Veins indicated that the primary stat (STR, INT, ..) has a lesser priority than mastery or crit ..
well, I still kept the primary stat as #1 in the list, because in most cases, you WILL have this stat on each item.
And if you reach the point where this difference matters, then you probably don't need the information any more, because you supposedly already know your class well enough.

- DataStore_Talents: major overhaul to support the new panel. Old functions have obviously been deprecated.
- LibCraftReagents is now deprecated, its functionality is now handled by DataStore_Crafts, which now has access to all recipes (even unlearned).
It's now 100% accurate and maintains itself (yeah, less code to maintain \o/).
Note: you should open each profession once to populate this internal reference table.
- DataStore_Mails: Fixed the invalid attachment counts in the tooltip for mails sent by guild mates.
- Removed LibBabble-Inventory, replaced the translations it provided by values returned by the game's API.
- DataStore_Quests: Fixed scanning quest links, which caused a Lua error when clicking on a tooltip.
Make sure to log in your alts once to fix their quest logs in the DB, this is what causes the tooltip issue.


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 :

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 !).

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

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?

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

Mindless

I'm almost done with the GUI update, so I think I should start looking into this by the end of the week. In the meantime, one thing you can try is something I had mentioned in an earlier post.

It seems that the issue was related to the mailbox, and that apparently BeanCounter was expecting mails to be unread, and Altoholic marks them read by default in order to read the body of a mail, but if you don't need this feature, you can disable the option "scan mail body" since it's not required to read attachments. It might be worth giving it a try if you haven't already.

Let me know

Thumbs up Re: WWI

Hi Thaoky,

Thanks for letting me know appreciate it would have been great to go and see. Glad Diablo3 coming out some time in the late future lol love Diable.

Also thanks for the feed back on WotLK ashame you couldn't play a Death knight hope I get to be a beta participant but knowing my luck hope in hell lol.

Not a big Starcraft fan but lots of mates are but must admit it sounds food doesn't it.

Thanks again for all your support and feedback greatly apprecaited.

PS: You have any time frame in regard to the AH mail box issue or is it on the back burner as low priority just curios not pushing just so you know. As I said all toons except one using it and that my auctioning toon so no reall biggy but would like the full functionality.

Thanks again

Re: Re: Fubar Problem

I'm glad it's working now, I could not think of any reason why it didn't want to appear, normally a full cleanup of the WTF folder should have been enough, but anyway .. :/

About the WWI, it was great, the D3 anouncement was amazing, seeing a guy come up on stage with a guitar and play the first notes of the Diablo theme was a great idea from Blizzard. I had a chance to put my hands on WotLK, but there's really not much you can do in 20 minutes, so I made some sightseeing. The machine I was on didn't allow me to play the DK, but I'm not worried, I'll test it in the beta

I also tested SC2, all 3 races, and they feel great, it still feels as magic as SC1, and the devs have shown us some cool techniques that will bring a lot to the gameplay. I guess we'll still be playing blizzard games in 5 years

Any yes for what ever reason I now have Altoholic on my Fubar please don't ask why all I know is that I have basically reset WOW to a new install and something at some stage must have become corrupt and effected your addon and no other addon which is really weird. Who really cares it works and thanks for all your help and patience and a great addon.

Hope you can work away around the mailbox issue with Beancounter and other Auction House addons for recording purposes as what I have done is disabled the addon for my auctioneer toons only and therefore still get full use so doing well.

Hope you have a great time at WWI wish I could go but am to disabled and in Australia doesn't help so if you can tell us what you thought etc that would be appreciated heaps.

Thanks again

Lightbulb Re: Fubar

Hi,

That is correct I don't get that at all. However after further investigation I have to do the fault finding not you as I installed it on my laptop with the currect version on WOWACE same as my PC and it works fine on the Fubar. Therefore there must be something going on somewhere or the cache or Blizzard folder effected. As I started all addons up first then tried process of elemination where as on Laptop only used Fubar and your addon with out issue. I will get back to you with what I try as I have had to do weird things like this in the past for other add on authors as I love add ons lol.

Leave it with me for a day or so and will let you know what I come up with if anything as no one complains in WOWACE forums or here on the contrary they want you to add options to the Fubar icon etc.

Thanks for your help hope I can help myself and you out now.

So you mean that after a fresh install you don't even see this ?

If that's the case, then I have to get back to basics, can you tell me which version of altoholic are you using ?

It's normal that you don't see any option about fubar into Altoholic's option pane, the fubar icon is supposed to be there by default (see screenshot), and you shouldn't have to go into fubar's options to show/hide the text/icon, this happens when right-click the addon's name or icon, not simply anywhere over the fubar, but I guess you knew that already.

Let me know, we'll make progress on this.

Exclamation Re: Fubar

Hi,

I am using Fubar 3 and no other version. I have deleted all references to Altoholic and I do not have any options to select to have this on Fubar panel. This option screen only allows me to remove it from the minimap but no options to enable it on the Fubar panel etc (and nothing where you state below about having a choice I have nothing at all). I have made 100% sure that I have no redundant files including saved var files. When I right click on Fubar and select Altoholic it also has no option there for the Fubar panel only to display the addon, hide the addon, toggle it or disable the addon and do a search in the search field. Please help me as I have no idea why it won't work but it doesn't have any options on the minimap icon like all my other ace addons do that allow you to detatch from minimap, disable the addon etc they just don't exist. Right click you have set up for moving only and I don't know if that causes an issue. And as I have also stated done a complete fresh install of WOW and it still doesn't appear on Fubar. However having said that no one else seems to have made any comments at all or complaints so it sounds like its my problem but I have no clue where to start looking. I have also disabled everything except Fubar and Altoholic and still have the same problem so I know its not a conflict with another addon. I am using EN-Us client Alliance and horde as well.

Sorry about this just hope you can help me out. Also using your addon on all my toons except the AH toon so that I still get all the benefits of this brillaint addon sheer genious I say to put this together well done and thanks again,

Thanks in advance and looking forward to your reply
