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.

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 !).

OK...just happened again. #1 acct, just lost its mail data (Before this, it was #3 account that lost its mail.) Wasn't dual-boxed. Also, I was just on my #2 and #3 accts, and those mail data appeared intact.

Any idea how I might recover that data? That's another 40+ chars I have to go in again to check mail.

Ok, I suggest you have a look at the content of the saved variables for all 3 accounts.

Location: wow folder\wtf\account\your_account\saved_variables\DataStore_Mails.lua

I would recommend using a good text editor (I like notepad++) to edit the files and see the actual content. You should see keys for all your alts, if there really is no mail in there, there is clearly a problem with the DB. I would be surprised since no one has ever reported that. But there might always be a bug either in the DB or in the UI.

Let me know what you find out.

I've already done that (two instances) in the past (while coding addon sharing features) and that has never caused a problem, so I think your issue lies elsewhere.

Note that the addon cannot scan mailbox data if you are not physically at a mailbox. Version number is ok.

Btw, did you enable Lua errors ? Maybe an error was triggered and you missed it.

I didn't have Lua reporting on at the time. Did that, and now, when I logged in...got this error. Seemed unrelated:

May be TradeskillInfo addon is worth looking into. I don't know.

I have used LibTradeLinks for a while, but it was discontinued or stopped providing spell ids, I don't remember which. I don't know if a replacement exists, but if there's a reliable one, I'd be glad to embed it.

I've seen other addons attempt to work around this, but honestly, I feel that the implementation becomes way too complex, or requires to maintain a list of spell ids that evolves with game patches. And that is something I don't want to do, as there are already quite a few lists to maintain.

Yeah, it was all the chars at once for all servers on that account. Time of last visit = Never. I wasn't doing anything with files or folders, and not running any special multiboxing program. Just two instances of wow, say, for using a high level to run a lower level thru an instance. The other account is unaffected, and I haven't changed any settings on that one.

The version is 4.0.005,
I've already done that (two instances) in the past (while coding addon sharing features) and that has never caused a problem, so I think your issue lies elsewhere.

Note that the addon cannot scan mailbox data if you are not physically at a mailbox. Version number is ok.

Btw, did you enable Lua errors ? Maybe an error was triggered and you missed it.

Would you happen to have deleted (even unknowingly) your SV files for those accounts ? Are you using tools like the one other multiboxers are using (I think it's called symlink) ?

You don't mention which version you are using, but as long as it's not a 3.x, you don't have to clean your SV files, and you won't lose any data.

One last thing, could it be that you left Altoholic disabled in the addon list for your other accounts ?

Iv noticed when looking at the Enchanting profession, the filters do not let you filter by armour type, as in what armour you will enchant (Head, Wrist, Chest ext).
In the Filters list the options available are: Color, Slots, Subclasses. None of these offer the armor type.
This is something you can see in any of the other proffesions when looking at them via Altoholic, and its something the standard blizzard enchanting proffesion frame offers aswell when looking at the proffesion on the correct toon.
Is there any way to enable this?

Thanks

Edited:
It Is also randomly not showing prof data on random toons.
Ill log on one toon and see the profs, relog to a diffrent toon and see nothing. Log to a diffrent toon again and see it all, go back to the first toon, and see nothing after a few mins.
Its really random when it does and does not show the profs and on what toons it decides it wants to play up on.
Professions have been giving me headaches since day 1 x)

All I can say is that I spotted a bug that may hide certain filters if you go to the profession pane coming from the skills tab. If you're in the profession pane and select another profession, filters should be ok.

Hi, All
New to 'altoholic'. Been using about 3 months.

One of my primary uses is to keep track of mail between chars. I have three accounts, but have not yet shared them through altoholic. Yesterday, I was dual boxing...and one of the accounts completely lost its mail data. Altoholic suddenly showed that I had never visited those 50 chars, on about 7 servers. (The first account seems fine).

Is there anyway to recover that data? As an attempt to 'fix' it, I logged out, disabled then re-enabled addons. (Altoholic is all that I currently run). This was with hindsight probably a bad idea, as it lost all data for all chars/servers.

I have not yet upgraded to the March 2 version. Will this cause me to lose all data, also? Would I have to revisit all chars, to update them?

TIA

No /command for that, if you just want to reset professions, just delete datastore_crafts from the SV files. Scanning professions may require you to open/close the tradeskill windows a few times, it depends on how the local caches (spells & items) are populated.
