Altoholic  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.007
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

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you're upgrading from 4.x :

- Make sure you delete the addon's databases in SavedVariables. ie: Altoholic.lua and all DataStore*.lua.
- Make sure to delete the old addon directories (Altoholic & all DataStore modules) as many files have changed/moved. A patch like this one is always a good opportunity for a fresh install.

5.4.007 (24/07/2014)

- Added missing faction "Emperor Shaohao".
- Altoholic: removed LibBabble-Faction
- DataStore_Reputations: removed LibBabble-Faction.
- Fixed lua error when using the search function.

5.4.006 (22/07/2014)

- Fixed double item counts in the tooltip.
- Improved the search functionality to be less restrictive.
- DataStore_Containers now triggers extra events for client addons.
- DataStore_Inventory now triggers extra events for client addons.
- DataStore_Auctions now triggers extra events for client addons.
- DataStore_Mails now triggers extra events for client addons.

5.4.005 (21/07/2014)

- 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 !!)

5.4.004 (07/10/2013)

- Fixed showing the item source for crafts in the tooltip.
- Fixed LibCraftInfo.

5.4.003 (06/10/2013)

- Created and added support for 3 new libraries : LibCraftInfo, LibCraftLevels, LibCraftReagents.
These libraries intend to replace the lost functionality caused by tables reset to zero in LibPeriodicTable.
I now have my own dataminer, so these tables should be easier to maintain when a patch hits.
I also cleaned up some hard coded tables to now use the libraries instead.
Overall, the addon now consumes a little bit more memory, but the data sources are way more complete than before.

- Replaced the internal list of recipes by LibCraftInfo.
- Fixed the Characters -> Profession pane no longer showing reagents due to LPT changes.
- Fixed the Grids -> Tradeskills pane no longer correct due to LPT changes.

5.4.002 (17/09/2013)

- Fixed profession levels reported as 0.

5.4.001 (11/09/2013)

- Added new 5.4 achievements.
- Removed a call to GetArenaTeam in DataStore_Stats.

5.3.003 (01/08/2013)

- Added missing reputations (Thanks Daovan !)
- The source of an item is no longer read/displayed in the tooltip if combat lockdown is active.
- Fixed a risk of profile reset when DataStore_Agenda is disabled.
- Updated glyphs (Thanks Zartsoft)
- Implemented RGriedel's fix for profession cooldown, hopefully they should be correct for both US & EU now (Thanks RGriedel!)
- Fixed a tainting issue in DataStore_Talents. (Thanks Warloxx!)

5.3.002 (29/05/2013)

- Fixed skill levels reported as 0.

Note: The problems does not fix itself with this new version. To fully fix it, you need to populate the database with new profession links.
To do this, log all your alts one by one, open their tradeskills, and ONLY THEN, open the skills pane in Altoholic to see that this character's
skill levels are ok. If not, it is merely a refresh issue.

As I said, the problem comes from the format of the profession links which has been changed by Blizzard, reload the whole thing, and you will be fine.


5.3.001 (28/05/2013)

- Fixed recipe colors at the Auction House (Thanks Elandril !).
- Fixed a lua error when DataStore_Agenda is disabled.
- Fixed profession cooldowns warnings, they are now hardcoded at 3 am (the game sometimes still returns midnight).
- Added a total AiL per realm in the account summary.

5.2.001 (12/03/2013)

- Added new pane in the 'Grids' tab to track dailies across all alts. Dailies are stored in DataStore_Quests and reset at 3am.
- Added 5.2 achievements.
- Added 5.2 pets.
- Fixed a bug while scanning reputations (Thanks Sylvannis !).
- Fixed a Lua error in the tabards pane.
- Added a safeguard to prevent tooltip errors when mousing over a recipe, this seems to be caused by other tooltip addons/libs.
- Added the Mantid archaeology race.
- Fixed scanning quest history.


Note: I have tried to look into an issue where profession cooldowns are announced at the wrong time, mostly for people playing on US realms.
Unfortunately, I could not make any solid tests (UK realms return me the same realm time as other EU realms .. weird).
If anyone can provide me with more info, I would gladly help.

Places to check in the code:
Altoholic\Events.lua: as of line 427
DataStore_Agenda\DataStore_Agenda.lua: look at how I set the variable clientServerTimeGap, see if results are consistent.

5.1.002 (24/02/2013)

- Updated both Achievements & Grids tab to show 11 characters per realm.
- Support for tabards is back.

5.1.001 (29/11/2012)

- Fixed 5.0.003 archive, DataStore_Achievements was missing.
- Fixed .Toc files not updated for 5.1 in previous release.

5.0.003 (28/11/2012)

- Re-fixed searching for heirlooms (Thanks JCinDE !).
- Scanning tabards is temporarily disabled, as it triggers an error I cannot fix right now.

5.0.002 (06/10/2012)

- Integrated the Void Storage to the container's UI (Characters -> Containers).
- Added Mists of Pandaria factions (Grids -> Reputations).
- Added Mists of Pandaria archaeology artefacts (Grids -> Archaeology).
- Added Mists of Pandaria crafts for each professions (Grids -> Tradeskills).
- Fixed a few Lua errors related to Battle Pets. They are temporarily NOT scanned at the Auction House.

Some features related to Battle Pets are now fully working, this is on my (neverending) to-do-list.


5.0.001d (13/09/2012)

- Fixed tooltips sometime being incorrect in Grids -> reputations & currencies.
- Fixed potential tainting issues due to the usage of the underscore in the code.
- Cleared a few source files that were no longer used.
- Fixed scanning of partially completed achievements.
- Fixed Lua errors that appeared in 5.0.5 due to a wrong spell ID for fishing.

Note about achievements:

Achievements partially completed on one alt. They will now appear a bit differently in the UI (especially when part of a series).
This is due to the values the game is returning.
Sometimes, the results may seem weird, BUT THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO TO FIX THAT !

It also makes no sense for me that some achievements in a series are character based, while some others are account based.
Ex: 100 HK is character based, but 25000 HK is account based ?
If you too think there is a problem here, then complain about it to Blizzard, as I will not write code to work around those inconsistencies.


5.0.001c (03/09/2012)

- Fixed tooltip showing "No data" for herbalism in the Skills pane.. for good this time !
- Fixed a Lua error when scanning glyphs.. for good this time too ! (Thanks Sylvannis)
- Fixed a Lua error when clicking on glyphs, blaming DataStore_Crafts and/or DataStore_Achievements.

- Note: About pets & mounts. I know that they are now account wide, but I will leave things as they are for a little while, that is at least until the expansion launches.
I want to see how things actually turn out to see what has value or not, or what could be modified to remain useful.

5.0.001b (02/09/2012)

- Fixed a Lua error when trying to scan glyphs on a low level character.
- Fixed a Lua error when scanning Inscription.
- Fixed invalid profession spell id's for Fishing & Herbalism.
- Fixed version number in .TOC
- Fixed a Lua error when mousing over a specific cell in the guild members pane.

5.0.001 (02/09/2012)

- Added support for itIT. If you can help with the translations, please go here: http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/altoholic/localization/
- Updated Achievement lists, please advise if you notice errors (especially for horde players).
- Fixed many issues related to changes in MoP. Too much to list.
- Talent pane is temporarily disabled. It will be back soon.
- Changed all drop down definitions to prevent tainting (Thanks ckaotik !)
- Fixed a Lua error in Grids->Reputations when selecting guild reputation.
- Added missing Tol Barad achievement : Occu'thar (Thanks Daveo77)
- Fixed a few UI issues related to account sharing.
- Fixed searching item upgrades based on iLevel
- Moved the sumary tab into its own module, this is in preparation of future new features. If you encounter a problem due to this, please roll back to 4.3.003b. (Should be ok though)
- Fixed pets not sorted alphabetically in Grids->Pets.
- Added back the All-in-one view in Grids->Pets.

Hey, welcome back to the our little hell! I hope you allright, as do your family.

Regarding addon, there's one... or, well, two issues that probably most looming.
The layering issue, when item buttons became hidden behind some other frame and don't provide any feedback, and certain items don't get treated as themselves (Sorrowmoss would be one example), providing wrong tooltips regarding item amounts in posession. (The latter could be related to the changes in item links regarding reforging. It was last dealt in Enchantrix, you could take a peek at it's code for ideas.)

Thumbs up Updates

That's awesome news. I was looking into possibly doing maintenance on altoholic to fix some of the defects and that was looking to be a daunting task. I'm very pleased that you'll be doing it instead.

Achievement Error after 4.06 patch

To fix the Achievement error you get after the 4.06 patch, you need to edit Altoholic_Achievements\Achievements.lua and go to line 114.
The line starts with spaces and then [CAT_PVP_TOLBARAD].
Change the first set of numbers from 5414:5419 to 5718:5719.

Be sure to use a text editor and not something like word pad.

Don't use context menu to set focus. There's at least 3 other ways to do so, and two of them is just faster. (Read - better)

Crowd control, Focus and Altoholic

When I try to right-click a target to Set Focus on it, I get an error message saying:

"Altoholic has been blocked from an action only available to the Blizzard UI. You can disable this addon and reload the UI."

Do you have any idea what could be causing the issue?

And thank you for an amazing add-on - for someone with 30 toons it's a must-have

DataStore/DataStore_Mail, of course.

It absolutely IS true.
As long as you didn't checked mailboxes, it is unknown case.
Your clams have nothing to do with what Altoholic believe to be reality.
It does not pull data out of your claims, it only know what it know - last state of your containers/skillbooks/talents/equipment as seen by addon.
If you opened a mailbox, emptied it, and didn't logged off properly (You hit cross on the window, killed it through task manager, hit Alt+F4 (God! Hear me! When Blizzard fix this???), WoW/OS crashed, power outage and so forth), your new mailbox state wasn't saved. That's only one of the many possible use-cases.

What saved variables do I delete?
DataStore_Mail (should be enough)

Like I said, I never leave old mail in the mailbox,
I don't tell you're wrong. I only want to point to the simple fact that Altoholic apparently don't know that, and it believe you have some mail left unchecked.
If it keep bothering you even after rescanning of every mailbox, and Activity tab show no mail counters for any of your characters, then deleting <Account>/SavedVariables/DataStore_Mail.lua should clear all the doubt.

That was too long ago and isn't true.
Revisit mailboxes, then check Activity tab on the Altoholic main frame.
If there's nothing, then you probably have stale data from deleted characters.
Clear your saved variables and rescan your characters.
It absolutely IS true. When I check my mail, I always remove and delete it all, so there is never any mail left behind. Unless there is a new mail envelope on the minimap, then I have no mail, new or otherwise, on that character.

What saved variables do I delete? The only characters Altoholic seems to check on are my existing 10. At least, those are the only ones listed in the Activity pane.


But you didn't bothered to actually check your mailboxes? How could you know, then?
Like I said, I never leave old mail in the mailbox, so to have checked my mail one month ago, or two months ago, or even longer, and to not have a new mail envelope now, means I have no mail in the mailbox at all. That's how I always do it.

Oh? "Mail Expiry Warning" isn't the one?

Well, what I mean is "no mail at all." All mailboxes have been checked in the past.
That was too long ago and isn't true.
Revisit mailboxes, then check Activity tab on the Altoholic main frame.
If there's nothing, then you probably have stale data from deleted characters.
Clear your saved variables and rescan your characters.

The warning right now seems based on the 30-day limit rather than actually having mail in the mailbox.

I don't intend to lose mail, since I have none to lose. And I'd rather not keep getting this pop-up every time.
But you didn't bothered to actually check your mailboxes? How could you know, then?

Is there a way / option to have the alts of characters in our guild show when they're offline like it does when they're online? And... any chance the old idea of a GUILDoHolic might still be planned? I remember throwing around some ideas for something like that, although it would be neat just to add more features to ALToHolic for guild features and maybe have an option modularly to not load those if someone doesn't want to use them?

I have a list of ideas I would love to see included usefulness for guild items of interest.

"No new mail" is quite different from "no mail at all".

Of course. How else addon can access mailbox data?


Yes. But honestly, do you really intend to loose your mail?

In options.

I've logged onto each alt and they have no mail.

Is there an option to just disable this notification altogether?
Yes. But honestly, do you really intend to loose your mail?

Yup. It's a bug-catching addon that i'm recommending for everyone to have, irrelevant to which addons they are using, if they are using any.

the Auctioneer folder is gone, but BeanCounter is still there???
Why it shouldn't, if you didn't unistalled it?
BeanCounter is a standalone addon, as much as Enchantrix for example.

How is this possible if BeanCounter is from Auctioneer
Not this way, quite. BeanCounter is included in Auctioneer Suite, but by itself is a standalone addon and could be used separately to track your sales.
And I should reiterate: BeanCounter ONLY track - thus marking as read - your auction sales mail. If you have other mail in box, it won't be marked as read by BeanCounter)

and I deleted the Auctioneer addon folder?
Modern Auctioneer comprise of several dependent addons (if you want details, I could supply you with a link to relevant discussion depicting all the "why"s).

Is BeanCounter used by another addon?
Not that I know, if youre asking about dependency outside Auctioneer suite.
It is a standalone sales tracker. It could be used as data source for Sales stat module of Auctioneer, to provide more reflective appraisals, but other than that, I don't know about any dependencies on it.
If you're not interested in your sales history, you may safely remove it, irrelevant to your use of Auctioneer addon itself.

If not, I'd like to delete that folder and any other things (I noticed four different Auctioneer type files/folders; BeanCounter, Enchantrix, EnchantrixBarker, Informant) and they are still listed in an Auctioneer heading in my Addon Control Panel.
That's right. They belong to same category, and in this instance, to same team of authors.
Enchantrix provide Disenchanting/Milling/Prospecting information and pricing.
EnchantrixBarker (I think, i'm not using it) helps you trade your skill for gold.
Informant provide general data regarding items, like max stack size, as well as Vendor stat module data.

If you want to get rid of Auctioneer suite completely, in debugging purposes, or for good, I recommend you follow instruction on http://wiki.norganna.org/Auctioneer/Installing
I'd still advise to keep Swatter, though, as it's the one addon that helps you (or authors of addons you're using) throubleshot addon crashes more easily.

I guess I'm failing to understand how, if I deleted the Auctioneer addon folder from my C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Interface\Addons,
Your main problem could be this.
You have WoW installed into Program Files. If you're using Windows Vista or newer, the folder you mentioned is not the one you want to deal with.
In either way, I strongly suggest you copy your WoW installation to some other place (like C:\Games), then remove it from "Program Files" to save disk space. (This way, not just move it to other folder, or you could hit the file permissions issue)

and BeanCounter is not showing up individually there, then how is it still on my computer???
As I meantioned earlier, if you're using Vista or newer, you're likely looking into wrong folder.

And, Babylonian, v5.1.DEV.130, I don't even recognize this one, what is it used for? I've never downloaded an addon called this, so I have to assume that its a support file for some other addon....?
It is localization engine for Auctioneer. Pretty harmless stuff by itself

Edited for spelling and clarity...
