Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 6.0.001
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.

6.0.001 (17/10/2014)

- Added a pane in the Grids tab to track LFR lockouts across alts.
- Added support for the new void storage tab + reagent bank.
- Updated achievement lists.
- Updated tradeskills data (Grids tab)
- Fixed WoD related issues.
- DataStore_Reputations: fixed WoD compatibility.
- DataStore_Reputations: LibBabble-Factions is back.
Note : seriously Blizzard why on earth is GetFactionInfoByID no longer returning data for the opposite faction's reputations?
- DataStore_Talents: talents & glyph scanning is temporarily fully disabled. UI is still missing too, sorry about that.
- DataStore_Quests: fixed WoD compatibility.
- DataStore_Containers: Added support for the new void storage tab.
- DataStore_Containers: Added support for the new reagent bank.
- LibCraftInfo: updated for WoD.
- LibCraftLevels: updated for WoD.

5.4.009 (08/08/2014)

- Uncommented the code that actually deletes linked realms.. silly me !
- 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).
- DataStore_Mails: fixed some problems related to merged realms, it should now work without problems anymore.
- DataStore_Mails: fixed issues where mail attachments (sent or returned) could be saved twice in the recipient's mailbox.

Changes by ckaotik (Huge thanks !)
- DataStore : Read addon version from .toc
- DataStore : Current character/guild key can now be used by character/guild based methods
- DataStore : added a few methods to support overriding methods
- Many minor fixes in DataStore_Achievements, Agenda, Containers, Crafts, Inventory, Mails, Talents
- DataStore_Quests : fixed tracking of completed quests

5.4.008 (27/07/2014)

- Fixed MoP factions showing up as numbers.
- Suggested leveling zones are back in the account summary.
- Added an option to reset links between merged realms (some realms were marked as linked though they were not)
=> DataStore dropdown in the Account Summary
- Added an option to completely reset the DataStore databases, without having to manually delete the files in the SavedVariables folder
=> DataStore dropdown in the Account Summary

- Added an option to remember the faction filter across sessions. (Grids -> Reputations)
- Added an option to remember the currency filter across sessions. (Grids -> Currencies)
- Added an option to remember the companion filter across sessions. (Grids -> Companions)
- Added an option to remember the mount filter across sessions. (Grids -> Mounts)
- Added an option to remember the tradeskills filter across sessions. (Grids -> Tradeskills)
- Added an option to remember the archaeology filter across sessions. (Grids -> Archaeology)
- Item counts for guilds on merged realms should now be visible too (sorry can't test this myself).


5.4.007 (24/07/2014)

- Added missing faction "Emperor Shaohao".
- Altoholic: removed LibBabble-Faction

- Fixed bugs related to full names (name+realm) in the Guild tab.
- Added a pane in the account summary to show the PVE & PVP currencies.
- Added tooltip support for connected realms.
Note: DataStore needs to learn about connected realms, to do so, send 1 mail to an alt on a connected realm.
The connection is understood both ways (realm A to B, and B to A) with a single mail.
If you are connected to more than 1 realm, send 1 mail per link.
Ex: for 3 realms, send 1 mail from realm A to B, one from A to C, and one from B to C.
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.
Note: Realm names are packed ("Marécage de Zangar" => "MarécagedeZangar") by Blizzard, this is supported.
If you notice something weird with your realm, please report it.
- Altoholic: removed LibBabble-Zone
- Updated the internal loot table and removed duplicate entries also found in LPT.
- DataStore_Inventory: removed LibBabble-Zone.
- DataStore_Reputations: removed LibBabble-Zone.
- Removed leveling suggestions from the character level tooltip in the account summary, as this information is now part of the game's world map.

Re: Re: Can't view equipment for more than 10 chars on a given server...

I've had a similar problem when hard linking multiple accounts to the same directory, so I've been trying to figure out a way to make it feasible to select the 10 toons to display and thought that checkboxes might be the answer. When the feature is enabled, a person could check up to 10 boxes on the main page to have that information shown in the frames like armor where there is a 10 toon limit. This is probably not the most elegant solution, but I have been unable to come up with another alternative. How difficult would this be to include as a feature, Thaoky?
As far as the design is concerned, there's nothing to worry about, I already know perfectly how I'm going to do it, it's just a matter of priority

Or maybe Thaoky will find an even better way to accommodate the situation
Indeed, I don't want to reveal everything yet, but there are other features I would like to implement that will require similar code execution paths, so maybe it will get into the addon sooner than I expect.

That gives me 60 days before I have to figure out what to do with that item. Altoholic showing mailboxes on tooltip makes this much nicer but it lacks the ability to tell if expiring mail is going to return to an alt or be deleted. Can you add that and also give an option to disable expiring mail warning for stuff returning to my own alts? That would be very welcome.
I added early support for that in the next version. The option is not there yet though.

Re: Can't view equipment for more than 10 chars on a given server...

Originally posted by Duman
Yes, I know that subject sounds stupid, but I have multiple accounts, and I have the account directories hard linked (NTFSLink) so that I can share addon data cross-account. This is awesome for most Altoholic-related stuff, but tragic for the Equipment View.

Since I therefore have more than 10 characters on a given realm, the "View Equipment" tab is basically broken/somewhat-useless for me. I end up seeing some of my mules' equipment, rather than "real" characters, for example

I'm not sure the best way to prevent this, unless you are willing to have an alternate view where you simply see a single character's equipment (rather than the nice side-by-side for (up to) 10 chars).

Perhaps give the side-by-side view a left-right scroll? Or some way to select which characters are shown?

Thoughts?

Or am I just SOL?

-T
It's not stupid, other people have asked this before, but you will understand that I cannot support a solution that is OS-based. At best, I wrote small safeguards to make sure that things don't break when there are too many characters. The built-in account sharing is the only way to go so far.

A side-by-side view is something I've had in mind for a while though, but that won't be implemented until blizzard allows us to have more than 10 chars per realm (for 4.0 ? who knows..). It's not that it can't be done, it's that I'm receiving a lot of feature requests, and I have to prioritize them. It's not a no, it's a maybe, but a very long term one

Well, it is grouping them per account, but every toon on the account has a group like this, where A, B, and C are all alts on the same account:
A
  • B
  • C
B
  • C
  • A
C
  • A

I got this error a while ago, I'm not sure if it is related:

I assume this happens at login, and that's most likely what hinders the rest. Can you confirm me that the SV file has been cleaned before trying the latest version ? Is everything correctly installed (1 Altoholic directory + 16 DataStore, all of them enabled in the addon list) ?

Thanks
Can you check if it was properly installed ? You should have one Altoholic directory (with no space in the name) and 16 DataStore dirs. Check that all of them are enabled in the addon list.

If it's easy to implement, i'd like to have current char to be present atop of other when listing materials availability on alts.
You mean in the tooltip ? Shouldn't be too hard, low priority though. I have little time to code these days, and bigger things to take care of unfortunately

Hmmm... just a thought. You're using LibTradeLinks-1.0
It is possible to use it to decode tradelink into recipes list?
If yes, that would reduce the need of actual scanning of the book.
I would like to reach the point where this becomes possible. What bothers me the most at the moment is that LibTradeLinks deprecates itself after a patch (through version control) and I need to understand why the author decided to do that (there must be a good reason, I just didn't dig into the whole thing enough to understand it). It's a goal anyway, and if/when DataStore gains a bit more visibility, maybe other authors will help making that a reality.

Might just be random, but as of now, I don't get that error any more. Hurray!

One more thing: When I transferred those "faulty" bits of data (the first time) it took forever ... also, Altoholic didn't quite like the idea of both sides sending and requesting data at the same time. Maybe something went wrong there wich caused a little (or not so little) data inconsistency
At this point, it's indeed not recommended to share data in both directions at the same time. I think I have an idea of why the error you mentioned occurred, it's being worked on.

I'd be too scared to hard cross-link directories, but my thought (for my wife who has 2 accounts) was to log on both accounts at once and use Altoholic's data sharing feature to cross-populate the data that way. It's definitely more labor-intensive and manual though.
I've actually done that, also, Hevanus. Unfortunately, I kept running into configuration problems with other mods. It would take forever to set up a profile for each addon then duplicate it on the other account. Copy/pasting the main settings files only took the process so far. Some addons just don't like transferring directories.

Mind you, I am NOT complaining about how Altoholic works. This is perhaps my most favorite addon ever in WOW, this and ArkInventory. A merge of the databases from both would be heavenly bliss, but I am a bit skittish about mucking around in someone else's code. I am only suggesting a possible feature addition should it be feasible. Code doesn't always want to be cooperative.

What the point?

AnrDaemon, try telling that to those of us with 2+ account and are virtually feeding all of our WTF info into one directory where Blizzard now sees it as, in my case, 19 toons.

Or, obviously, the ability to just see one character's equipment at a time, if you wish ;-)

Or maybe Thaoky will find an even better way to accommodate the situation

This is probably not the most elegant solution, but I have been unable to come up with another alternative. How difficult would this be to include as a feature, Thaoky?

Question Re: Can't view equipment for more than 10 chars on a given server...

Yes, I know that subject sounds stupid, but I have multiple accounts, and I have the account directories hard linked (NTFSLink) so that I can share addon data cross-account. This is awesome for most Altoholic-related stuff, but tragic for the Equipment View.

Since I therefore have more than 10 characters on a given realm, the "View Equipment" tab is basically broken/somewhat-useless for me. I end up seeing some of my mules' equipment, rather than "real" characters, for example

I'm not sure the best way to prevent this, unless you are willing to have an alternate view where you simply see a single character's equipment (rather than the nice side-by-side for (up to) 10 chars).

Perhaps give the side-by-side view a left-right scroll? Or some way to select which characters are shown?

Thoughts?

Or am I just SOL?
