Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.0.006
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.

Credits

- I'd like to thank my guild, Odysseüs on EU-Marécages de Zangar, for assisting me since the earliest phases, thanks guys for everything you've done
- Thanks to the wowace community, you've been very helpful and this addon would not be there without the technical answers you gave me (especially Xinhuan, author of BankItems)
- Thanks to all the guys who are behind AtlasLoot, keeping the loot table up-to-date is a tremendous work, and the search functionality of Altoholic would not be what it is without your hard work.
- Thanks to Ayindi (wowace) & sLiz3r (curse) for the German translation.
- Thanks to NightOwl (wowace) for the zhTW translation.

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.


7.0.006 (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 :

http://eu.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/17612943218

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 !).

Altoholic does not call any micro buttons.
Even less so - DataStore. It's is a pure service addon.
your response does not address the error. I am getting the same thing every time i open the world map. i do not use Mapster. please help. i love this addon but the error is annoying.

On all my alliance toons, the tooltip for an item will show quantity in the Hordeside guild bank (assuming there is any of that item there, of course).

Is there any way to turn *that* off?

Have loved the addon for years now. Thank you!

-Barleduq
This was bugging the living daylights out of me (It kept showing an old guild's info)! I searched Google and people kept saying "click the icon with the black figures and yellow background on the guild tab" but I didn't SEE that icon. I finally found it! Guild Tab->Click Guild Bank (left column-ish)->Icon with black figures and yellow background! It gives you the option to delete or hide a guild bank! I hope this helps other people trying to find this option.

RE: Profession Skills "0"

I am having similar issues as noted in previous posts, but I have the following observations/data to contribute.
(1) I did not delete my "saved variables" / wtf folders / etc.
(2) As I have cycled through my 11 toons that I track I noticed the following:
(a) Only professions that "create" something are changed to "0" (regardless of primary or secondary)
(ie: mining & fishing are displaying normally)
(b) All of the known recipes are still showing as learned, just the score showing as "0".
(c) no matter how long I leave a profession window open, I am unable to get it to refresh & update to anything other than "0"

Thanks,
Eddy

The fact Altoholic does not show enchants/gems is a long-standing bug...

* Arguments of 'it's not worth buying till you're maxed level' are useless. For one thing, when I'm leveling a JC, being able to make gems for myself is far more useful than making them to be vendored, or thrown onto the AH in hopes of selling. For another thing, due to the former, it's possible to find gems on the AH for less than the cost of making them.

Question Re: Re: A few issues

Thank you very much, I will try that.

One other thing I have always wondered... do I need to have the Altoholic window open while I open all the windows that need to be opened?

The other thing is the glyphs still don't seem to be visible in a few cases, as it was in the last release for me, depending on which area of glyphs I look in, some are just missing (the graphic/icon).

Thanks!

edit: I also see the issue of Profession skill levels has returned: they often display as 0.
If you have Auctioneer installed, disable that option.
Regarding skills and other things, if you've deleted your SV's, you need to specifically and intentionally open every related window for Altoholic to properly scan everything.

Sugestion

Hi, I wanted to thank you for this addon, its great. I had a suggestion that I thought might be useful. Could this also track world boss kills across alts? For example people who kill galleon and Sha of anger every week on multiple alts. Could this track and show which toons have killed (and even coined) various bosses?

Thanks again, love your addon!

I'd really like to start fresh, but every time I've deleted the addon from the WoW/Interface/Addons folder, it seems there are files, somewhere, that are not being deleted. What do I need to remove to get a fresh start?
You can delete characters, that no longer exists, directly from the Altoholic interface. Main page, right in your face.
Alternatively, remove any mention of DataStore_* files from the WTF folder, but then you will loose DataStore modules configuration as well.

with regards to other faction

Yes, telling Altoholic to not show other faction means it doesn't show what the other faction characters have. It *does*, however, continue to show what the other faction *guilds* have.

I have my alliance toons in a (semi) private guild, House of the ConfusedCat. On the same server, I have my horde toons in a (semi) private guild, Horde of the ConfusedCat. On all my alliance toons, the tooltip for an item will show quantity in the Hordeside guild bank (assuming there is any of that item there, of course).

Is there any way to turn *that* off?

Have loved the addon for years now. Thank you!
