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

Version: 7.0.002
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.

7.0.002 (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 !).

@Angsta (and anyone else having the same problem) : May I ask you to :

1) try reproducing the problem you're mentioning with only Altoholic & DataStore modules enabled. I want to be certain we are not dealing with an addon conflict here. Complete, the problems I outlined still exist.

If the problem still occurs, then I would like you to take a few screenshots of the problem and also to use the /framestack command to provide me with additional info. See below, I screenshotted while cursoring over each of the 10 things on the Characters tab, with Frame Stack displayed in the upper left corner.





Blizzard has definitely changed something in the way they manage frames, and it's a bit tough to find out what and how to fix it (the tooltips that kept not showing in .005 were a good example .. and all that happened since cata).

2) Also, I suspect that if nothing shows, there was most likely a Lua error at logon. Can you make sure to check that in the game's option panel -> help -> "display Lua errors" is well enabled. If not, check it, and login again to trigger the error, it will most definitely be useful if there is one.

Message: Interface\AddOns\DataStore\DataStore.lua:557: assertion failed!

Locals: (*temporary) = false


The above was what popped up when I clicked on the mini-map Altoholic icon and the Auctioneer-type Altoholic window popped up. So I just copy/pasted from there into here.



To further answer your original post:

- In the characters tab, the 8 icons on top should display a mouse over menu telling what they actually do, if you don't see that menu, then we have to find the cause, but I would never add an icon without at least a little hint of what it's there for.
- The Female Dwarf in Christmas garb, well, that's supposed to be an easter egg .. some icons change based on certain conditions
- [EDIT] The calendar issue has just been fixed on my side.

Let's hope we can make progress on this.


@AnrDaemon: I'm working on the herbalism thing, I'm close to a solution.

4. Confirm that none of Altoholic or DataStore addons is listed.
5. Reinstall Altoholic.

No offense, but, thats exactly what I did, and I'm not going to do it exactly the same way, twice in a row. I must sound like a complete idiot.

If you still see anything of Altoholic installed - you're meddling with wrong folder.
If not, then install Altoholic anew.

I know there's some backlog, I'll be working on it over the weekend.

About the glyph issue, I just found out about it, too late for a fix in this push, but it's on my list for the next release.

Thao

I just downloaded the update, and it didn't fix the problems I listed in my post which, I don't even know what page it was on. I'm hoping it was in this thread, lol.



Edit: Found it, I'll just quote it here for ya.

I apologize in advance if this is already brought up, I don't even know how to describe what's happening for me, so please bear with me as I struggle to use a vocabulary that probably is all wrong.

When I open up my Altoholic (V.4.0.005 by Thaoky), and I select the Characters tab at the bottom, I notice several things. First, there appears to be a double tab for the Characters tab, like there's another tab hiding behind the entitled tab.

Second, once I select that tab, there are no longer any icons on the left side of the window, below the pulldown option for which server I wish to view. There is a 'highlighted' icon, but no icon itself. What I mean by that is, there are the little gold dots, moving in a continuous clockwise motion around a square icon location, but within those gold dots, there is no icon. The other spaces where icons are supposed to be, there aren't any.

Further, at the very top, there are 8 icons, from left to right (as they have no title tooltip window to indicate the icon or search feature name); Female Dwarf in Christmas garb, 6/8 slot bag icon, yellow exclamation point on a blue background, tree on a left to right slanted hill with stars, money icon, paper icon, book icon and the last one appears to be a hand holding a hammer in front of a...clock?

Please excuse my ignorance of this stuff, I'm a retired disabled combat vet and, even wearing my glasses, it's hard to see some of this stuff.

Currently, the only icons that create a tooltip window with options are the first four, the second four are not selectable or even have a tooltip window appear upon cursoring over them.


One other thing I've noticed is, every day I play WoW, I keep getting messages about Calendar scheduled events that have already passed, as if trying to tell me, 'You have this long before you have to go do this!' even though the event has already passed, most of them now weeks ago, at the minimum (pre-Cataclysm release).



I hope I was clear enough with the descriptions, I'm presuming (since you created and maintain this addon) that you know what I'm talking about. I just hope I can find my way back here to check on this thread, lol.




PS. By the way, I'm not getting any error messages on cursor-over or click, the icons just aren't working at all in either case.

Ok, more info on the subject.
It seems that items, which was renamed in Cataclysm, confusing Altoholic.
Which, in turn, lead me to believe that whole inventory handling needs some attention. Item counts should not rely on item names at all, but solely on item links.

P.S.
Dragon's Teeth (ex. Wintersbite) affected as well as Sorrowmoss (ex. Plaguebloom) so far.

I've mentioned that earlier. Type "/framestack" and look to the order of frames. You'll be surprized.

Not showing all the tool tips

When i go to the Characters tab then click on Equipment. All the equipment is there but when I mouse over them there is no tool tip. So you have no clue what they do. Also the achievement section don't work at all. Most everything else I use from Altoholic works.

V4.0.005

Thanks

Welcome back. I just submitted a bug report dealing with glyphs not being stored. Only noticed this happening after Tues patch so it may be related to some interface change made with the patch.
