Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.1.001
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.

6.1.001 (25/02/2015)

- Added support for Garrison missions ! Warnings are not in yet, but available and active missions are now visible in the characters' tab.
Note: Active missions can only be correctly tracked if the mission is started with this version of Altoholic, so currently active missions will be visible, but their expiration will not. Sorry, this info is not provided by the game, I have to "manually" keep track of it.
- Fixed the spam of mail expiry warnings, this time for good (hopefully ! feedback appreciated on this one!).
- Now refreshing the follower's pane immediately when the followers' list is updated.
- Updated list of followers not recruited at the inn.
- Updated list of archaeology projects with WoD projects.
- Cleaned up the .pkgmeta of DataStore modules, my sources tell me this should prevent some problems with the Curse Client :) (Thanks Myrroddin !)
- Removed "already known/could be learned by" information from tooltips for companions, as they have been account-wide for a while.
- More code cleanup.

Note: I made several attempts at fixing the double guild bank counters in the tooltip, thanks to all of you who sent me their SV files, the issue is now clear.
Nevertheless, a complete perfect fix is not yet possible, as Blizzard does not provide the real/full realm name to which the guild actually belongs.
The best I can get in my case is "MarécagedeZangar" when I actually expect "Marécage de Zangar", and that value is nowhere to be found in the API.
Long story short, I have to come up with a way to work around this that does not force you guys to respect weird conditions to make it work..


6.0.004 (09/01/2015)

A massive code cleanup was performed, it should be mostly transparent for all of you, but code maintenance will be greatly improved for me.
I also simplified a lot of XML frames with new conventions that Blizzard had activated certainly a while ago, but that I never had time to change.
It's not finished, but it's a step in the right direction :)

- Many options were not saved correctly, this has been fixed, as a result, these options have been reset (tooltip options, etc..)
This options bug had, among others, impact on the account sharing feature that couldn't be launched anymore, Thanks Elfana for helping me on this !
- DataStore_Garrisons: Fixed scanning collection of garrison cache resources. It could occasionally be wrongly reset when getting resources from other sources.
- DataStore_Garrisons: Followers are now stored based on their id's, instead of their names. You will have to check your missions' table again with your alts to update follower information.
- DataStore_Garrisons: added a slider to configure when the reporting for uncollected resources should happen (350 -> 475)
- Grids -> Garrison Followers: added a drop down list to filter followers on whether they are collected, not collected, and if they were recruited at the inn or not.
- Garrison blueprints now appear in red if already known, I applied the same rule as for BOP recipes from Garrison trainers, thus any BOP item with "Already known" will appear red in a merchant frame.
- DataStore_Agenda: fixed another Lua error at logon introduced with previous fix. (Thanks again SpareSimian!)
- DataStore_Mails: added an option to report mails about to expire to the chat frame, in addition to the already existing dialog box. This will allow you to see on which alt the mail can be found. Please keep me informed if you detect real bugs thanks to this.


6.0.003 (27/12/2014)

- DataStore_Garrisons: fixed a bug where saved buildings are deleted from the DB.
- Added tracking of uncollected garrison resources. They can be seen in the currency pane of the account summary.
- Added a warning when uncollected garrison resources are >400 on a given alt. There is an option to disable this warning if you want to.
- Added Garrison-related achievements, now listed in a proper way in the achievements' tab.
- Checked recipes that kept appearing in green at garrison trainers.. there was no bug actually, recipes stayed green because they could be learned by other alts.
What I did instead is to check if a recipe is BOP. If it is BOP, and already known, it will appear in red.
- Removed mounts from the addon, as they have been account-wide for a while now. The icon is still there as a placeholder in the grids tab though.
- DataStore_Pets: removed all mount-related functions and data tables.
- DataStore_Mails: fixed a bug where the addon kept complaining about old mails about to expire. This one is long overdue, thanks to Wispor and Elfana for helping me on this one !
- Fixed "Player not found" message. (Bug 779 / Thanks Phinar !)
- DataStore_Achievements: fixed an error caused by achievements with invalid id (as returned by the game's API). (Bug 792 / Thanks SpareSimian)
- DataStore_Agenda: fixed a Lua error at logon. (Bug 792 also / Thanks SpareSimian)

6.0.002 (24/12/2014)

Seven Year Anniversary Edition.

Today is the seventh birthday of Altoholic, and I wanted to take a moment to thank the community for its patience and support.
2013 was a difficult year on a personal level, and 2014 was extremely busy at work.
As you have all seen, the amount and the pace of releases was not the best in these last 2 years, nevertheless, I remain committed to keep the addon alive, even if it will sometimes be on a "best effort" basis.

I had originally planned to make a release a bit earlier, but life came in the way, and truth be told, it's not a bad thing that the release happens today, as the last time I actually made a release close to the addon's birthday was for the 2-year anniversary.

To celebrate this wonderful day, I am releasing the first garrison-related features, it's not much, but it's a step in the right direction. I hope you'll enjoy it.

I will be peacefully resting at home for the next 2-3 weeks with some spare time on my hands though, and I intend to work on garrison missions + resources, and also on several fixes that are long overdue.

Enough said.. let me finish by wishing you all the best for 2015, for you and your families, and of course for all your alts :)

.. on to the changelog !

- New DataStore module : DataStore_Garrisons !
Note: You have to visit the missions table to scan followers, it doesn't work otherwise.
- Grids tab: added a pane for Garrison followers.
- Grids tab: added a pane for Garrison buildings.
- DataStore_Containers: now scanning the reagent bank at logon.
- Account Summary : updated the "currency" pane to remove valor and justice tokens, and replace them with garrison resources, apexis crystals, and seals of tempered fate.

- Fixed a Lua error when talking to an enchanting follower in the garrison.
- Fixed professions not being scanned entirely since 6.0 (Thanks Myrrodin & CKaotic), I did revert the part about followers though, to use IsNPCCrafting() instead.
- A lot of minor fixes.

Notes:
- Garrison missions/resource tracking are coming, no need to ask, it's high on the priority list :)
- I have a few weeks off, so I'll have time to work on the add-on, there will be releases in the coming 2-3 weeks, with several bug fixes (hell, the list has grown quite long..)

5.4.009 (08/08/2014)

- 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).

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.

If you notice something weird with your realm, please report it.

- Updated the internal loot table and removed duplicate entries also found in LPT.

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.

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.

Of course. How else addon can access mailbox data?


Yes. But honestly, do you really intend to loose your mail?
But what's the option called? Nothing seems relevant.

Well, what I mean is "no mail at all." All mailboxes have been checked in the past. The warning right now seems based on the 30-day limit rather than actually having mail in the mailbox.

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...

Auctioneer is no longer stored in the Auctioneer folder. they're all labeled Auc-Advanced, Auc-stat.. etc. and Babylonian is part of auctioneer, i think its just the name of their dev channel release

Install, if you don't have already, http://zip.norganna.org/libs/!Swatte...ter-latest.zip
Then in game, do a "/run foo()", then copy and paste here contents of the popped backtrace.

Hi, please forgive me what may end up being a simple question, I don't know much about addons other than the barest "how to drag them into my addon folder."

I just reinstalled Altoholic. I can't seem to get it to track my skills now. I have opened each skill pane since I installed it (well, I missed my warrior's eng, but I did all the others). When I use the skills tab, I can see what the rank is, but not open to see the patterns. When I go to characters-->skill all I see is "no data" in the very bottom left. Am I missing something somehow? Thanks.
