Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.1.006
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.

6.1.006 (08/05/2015)

- Updated list of archaeology projects with WoD projects. I apparently messed up and lost the file that contained the update in 6.1.001, it's now ok.
- Moved several UI templates to their own folder.
- Completely rewrote the Blizzard's DropDownMenu widget to use my own version.
I was tired of some of the constraints of their implementation, and of the loss of time it caused me every time I wanted to use one.
So I invested some time in making it my way.
- Account Summary -> The amount of uncollected garrison resources now appears in yellow when resources exceed 300, and in red when they exceed 450.
- Account Summary -> Added icons with drop-down menus to filter your list of alts by faction, level, profession and class.
- Account Summary -> Fixed the expand/collapse button that did not work anymore after the complete rewrite of the pane.
- Achievements lists updated ! (Thanks Bluemage29 for your help !!)
- Fixed a Lua error when viewing the Guild tab with an character not in a guild.


6.1.005 (20/04/2015)

- The garrison mission tooltip now shows a red exclamation mark '!' when no missions are active.
- In the account summary, the last column used to sort the view is now remembered, and is restored when you log in again.
- Character's tab: fixed a lua error when mousing over the professions' icon of a character that does not have 2 professions.
- Account Summary: modified the garrison followers pane to show followers at iLvl 675 and a column for their weapon/armor iLvl.


6.1.004 (11/04/2015)

- Fixed sorting the account summary by "Last Online" where the order was sometimes incorrect.
- Added an option to show the tooltip counters without details (no 'equipped', 'bank', ..). Disabled by default.
- No longer wiping the list of followers before scanning them.
- Added a tooltip to the garrison resources in the account summary, it now shows when resources were last collected, and when you will reach the maximum of uncollected resources.
- Fixed incorrect tooltip after multiple searches in the search tab.
- DataStore_Garrisons: Some clean-up to properly report active missions.
- The garrison mission tooltip that shows a '*' when missions are complete now shows it in red if all active missions are complete.

6.1.003 (07/04/2015)

REMINDER: If you are looking for a free Heroes of the Storm Beta key for the European Region, you should check the comments section on Curse & WoW Inteface.. I still have a few keys to give away.

- Fixed a few lua errors in the account summary tab.
- Added Draenor LFR dungeons to the Grids->Dungeon Finder pane.

6.1.002 (06/04/2015)

- Updated scanning of currencies (honor points), total no longer needs to be divided by 100 since 6.1.
- Updated the garrison followers pane in the account summary to show followers with an iLvl greater than 660.
- DataStore Characters: updated GetRestXPRate() to account for Pandaren extra rest xp.
- Fixed Auction House scanning, and cleaning of expired auctions.
- The summary tab has been fully rewritten so that all 6 panes use the same frames.
This will make the addition of future content much easier.
Some new features here and there while I was at it (quality of life improvements mostly), I'll let you discover them :)
This is an update I wanted to do for a long time, and there are more things planned (more filters).. the other tabs will get an update too.


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 buildings.

Notes:
- Garrison missions/resource tracking are coming, no need to ask, it's high on the priority list :)

Is it possible to display more than 10 characters from a single realm? With multiple accounts, and using symbolic links for the account directories in the WTF directory on a Mac, all of my other addons that store shared data can display it for all alts.

If it's not possible to display more than 10, could we at least choose which 10 to display?

Quite simple, answer is - CompactUI.
Which is superior to native auction interface in every possible way.

My personal problem with your new system is only that i can see 5 characters at once. If you could go back to 10 characters/coloms everything would be fine (for me). Well, but thats just because i have all my characters on the same realm. I guess that depends on the player itself. Is this now a bug, or is it intented that i can only see 5 characters at once?
The way it's currently implemented, you can only see as many characters as there are on a realm (max 10). So if you have 8 chars on realm A and 4 on realm B, select realm A and you'll have 8 columns enabled, select realm B and you'll have 4.

If you have 10 alts on a realm, there is no reason why you could only see 5 (unless a Lua error comes in the way that is). Come to think about, I wouldn't be surprised if a localization issue was again coming in the way (Blizzard must stop renaming talent trees all the time, really).

Could you do the following test for me please ?

Log in your shaman, and type these commands :

/script print(GetTalentTabInfo(1, nil, nil, 1))
/script print(GetTalentTabInfo(2, nil, nil, 1))
/script print(GetTalentTabInfo(3, nil, nil, 1))

/script print(GetSpellTabInfo(2))
/script print(GetSpellTabInfo(3))
/script print(GetSpellTabInfo(4))

Take screenshots and send them to me (or put them on imageshack or whatever).

Thanks in advance !

Edit: If there was an error the first time you used 4.0.004, it's possible that the options got screwed, so deleting your altoholic.lua and viewing the characters tab with an alt other than your shaman should fix the issue.

edit: I read your comments again. Well, part of what you're asking is just the current implementation. In the future, I will enhance the drop down menus to allow you to pick characters from other realms/accounts, and even from guild members in certain cases. As I said in the patch notes, the current implementation of those menus is just the beginning.

About the auction coloring: I'll add an option in 4.0.004b, and I'll release it asap.

The error triggered at the AH seems to be caused by auctioneer, due to which a global frame is not available (why on earth they're doing that is beyond me, but heh..).

@Lightning: About the characters tab issue you're having. I would like to know in which language you are playing, and which class the character causing the issue is.

edit: I read your comments again. Well, part of what you're asking is just the current implementation. In the future, I will enhance the drop down menus to allow you to pick characters from other realms/accounts, and even from guild members in certain cases. As I said in the patch notes, the current implementation of those menus is just the beginning.

Although I do agree with you about the "it simply does not work" part, and I'm glad someone else is seconding the feature I requested for, which makes it even more possible to get implemented, the reason for that pattern not being purple in the first place is because the color coding is based on what your characters are potentialy able to learn not the item quality of the pattern itself. Hence, if any or all of your toons are able to learn said mentioned pattern the addon color codes it using a green overlay etc.

The main problem arises when there is another addon added to the mix that color codes with a green overlay, already known recipes by any or all of your toons (which, to me at least, makes even more sense, because in such a way you are able to determine with but one glance if you need that recipe or not).

The solution to this problem would be to disable the other addon, or ask the other addon author for an option to be able to choose for yourself which color you want to use for the already known recipes (other than green) so the two addons collaborating won't clash with each other.

Or ask altoholic's author (kindly of course and with much sugar on top ) to implement an option to enable/disable color coding at your own choosing...

...
Did you delete your wtf files of altoholic and datastore before?

I had some issues before, the green/red coloring didnt worked the way it should, but after deleting it, the coloring worked without any error.

I do get the following error, than i click on the big charakter tab:
Code:
1x DataStore_Talents-4.0.001\DataStore_Talents.lua:408: attempt to concatenate field 'icon' (a nil value)
(tail call): ?:
Altoholic_Characters-4.0.004\TabCharacters.lua:780: in function `initFunction'
Interface\FrameXML\UIDropDownMenu.lua:69: in function `UIDropDownMenu_Initialize':
Altoholic_Characters-4.0.004\TabCharacters.lua:1166: in function `OnLoad'

<in C code>: in function `LoadAddOn'
Altoholic-v4.0.004\Core.lua:256: in function <Altoholic\Core.lua:254>
Altoholic-v4.0.004\Core.lua:289: in function `OnClick'
<string>:"*:OnClick":1: in function <[string "*:OnClick"]:1>
The graphiks of the left menu are gone, but if you know there the buttons are, you can still use them.

Edit3: the error i do only get with 1 of my charakters. This is a bit wirred, because all my charakters are using the same interface/addons, with 1 exeptions: TotemTimers [v10.3.7] (Yes, the shamy is the one with the error.)

Edit4: The next bug ... i have 9 charakters on this realm. On the charakters tab there should be 9 colums, 1 for each charakter of equip, mounts, pets and so on, right? But i do have there only 5 charakters visibel, if i mouseover on the charakter symbol on top of the colum i do get a drop down menu of all 9 charakters. Btw: same with the achievment tab .. only 5 charakters are visible at once.

Edit5: Why do i have the feeling, that my point nr4 isnt a bug but a change?
I can change the 5 displayed charakters there with using the dropdownmenu ... but wouldnt it be nicer to have a overview over the whole account?

Ok, i see the problem in there ... if you really want to make cross-realms comparisons than you have to limit the charakters beeing displayed.
Like i said, i would really like to see 10 charakters back there.

Using latest version (4.0.004)

I would like to know if there is a way of not having recipes color coded. Reason is because I'm using another addon to track down which recipes are already known by my toons and the color coding used by altoholic is kinda conflicting with the one used by the other addon. The coloring codes while the same between the two addons (green, yellow, red) have different meanings which makes things a little more complicated than needed. For example said addon is using green for recipes *already* known by xyz toon while altoholic is using green for recipes that *could* be learned by xyz toon.

After a quick scanning through the options I didn't notice anything unless I'm missing something obvious.

Thanks for a great addon that is a life savior for us altoholics

I suspect an interaction with another addon, so same suggestion as the previous post : try the same test with altoholic alone. If you find out which addon causes the issue, tell me, and I'll see if anything can be done on my side (not always possible, but I'm ok to have a look if I know where to search).
I'll try it without other addons. (not that old of a machine C2D @ 2.77gz, 2gb ram 800 mhz, 8800 GT 512. I get like 40 - 60 fps everywhere but Sholzar and Dalaran)

Anyhow know if it's possible to run it without lag? whenever I loot / get an item there's about a half a second complete freeze up of wow when I run altoholic. Thanks.

.. attempt to concatenate 'COLOR' (a function value). Well, that's the problem. 'COLOR' is not a function, it's a string, at least that's how the game defines it.

What happens here is most likely that one of your addons has redefined this value (I am 3000% sure that I haven't done that). So the best thing to do assuming you can reproduce this at will, is to disable all other addons and to perform the same action with only Altoholic & datastore enabled. If that doesn't happen (and I'm sure it won't), another addon is guilty.

To find out which, re-enable them one by one.
