Altoholic  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.0.003
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.

7.0.003 (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 !).

tooltip mail problem

Hi Again,
I have updated my version to the latest one and I still have the problem with mailed items not showing in the tool tip. Link On the link I'm pointing on the Dreadstones in my mail, but it's only counts the two in my bags. All other addons were wiped including wtf, interface and cache folders.

thanks
If you've enabled a popup notify, it's only your own problem.
By default, Altoholic announce events in chat only.

Two accounts problem

I just noticed this yesterday. I upgraded to the newest version on the site and now I can't seem to get the information from my second account to show up.

I rescanned all characters on both accounts, did a Share request between them both ways but now the "other" account will not show. All that shows is the characters on the account that is logged in; even the ones on a different server.

I know in the past I was able to see the other accounts data so not sure what changed or what I may have messed up (set some setting different).

edit:

Oopsie. I checked the change log posted here and it said the Option tab was gone and options where now included in the Blizzard Interface Tab. I just checked my Altoholic folder and I apparently was running an earlier 3.2.003 version. The toc listed it as r56, the newest one is r57. I redownloaded and deleted the Altoholic and all the DataStore folders in my WTF and interface folders. If I still have a problem after installing the real "newest" version and rescanning/sharing I'll update this.

additional:

After deleting altoholic and the DataStore folders, installing current version and rescanning all characters again, and Sharing; I can now see both accounts again. I have horde on one server and alliance on a different one and couldn't find a way to prevent seeing the alliance characters on the horde or vise versa in the summary. I ended up just clicking the +/- on the non-applicable account so only see the faction ones but still see the other faction "title".

I assume you mean in the 'Guild Members' pane ? If so, yes, it's planned.

This was a compatibility issue with Combuctor, but after discussing that with Combuctor's author, he acknowledged that the bug was on his side. That was a few months ago, and I don't know if he found what it was though.

Re: Fix for mail counter not showing in tooltip

Originally posted by Quagm1re
Check out line 959 of Altoholic.lua. It is using ipairs to iterate a table that can possibly have nils in it, thus stopping the iteration if it encounters a nil value. DataStore is returning nils, rather than zeros, when a container type doesn't have any of that item. To fix this, you can either modify DataStore to return zeros instead of nils, or change from "ipairs" to "pairs" on this line. That's it, and it's verified working for me.

Edit: Changing that one entry from ipairs to pairs fixes part of the problem, at least, but more changes are obviously needed if that is the desired route, rather than changing DataStore. This change doesn't fix the "total" value in the tooltip for a character, for example.

Edit2: Also change line 947 in Altoholic.lua from "ipairs" to "pairs" for an easy fix for now for the character totals.
Thanks for finding this one, saves me some debugging time ! I applied the fix on my side.

Thx for this small workaround... it takes effect as it should be
