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.

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)

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.

1. What is Altoholic's memory footprint like?
With 10 fully loaded alts, I'm using around 4 mb, spread over Altoholic and the various DataStore modules. It scales with the amount of characters you have, but it's nothing to put your machine on its knees, unless it's an old one.

I saw your comment about the "block too big" issue, nothing to be afraid of, I'm always extra cautious when it comes to memory allocation (I'm a C programmer too).

Originally posted by Hevanus 2. Can Altoholic add info to item tooltips regarding which alts (bags, mailboxes, personal banks, etc.) / guild banks have how much of that item?
Yes: Banks, guild banks, mailbox, AH.

Originally posted by Hevanus
3. I see that Altoholic has features that help you find equipment upgrades. Have you thought about implementing weight tables or some kind of Pawn integration to help the user better evaluate gear?
The equipment upgrade takes your item level and/or item stats (tooltip parsing) and finds upgrades in a way that is similar to the official armory, try it or look at the screenshot, it's pretty explicit.

I haven't used Pawn, and I do not intend to review this feature in the near term (not before 4.0, since blue will change the way stats are treated).

4. Does Altoholic provide any LDB data feeds? You mentioned that it tracks "money, /played, rest xp for each character, subtotals by realm, and grandtotals for the account" so it seems like it would almost be redundant to run AllPlayed with Altoholic.

Thanks!
No data feed, only a launcher. At best, I could implement the feeds in DataStore modules, but I'd clearly need info on that (sorry, no time to dig for it myself right now).

Added to my list.

Hmm... I can remember this has been mentioned before, but now, I got to it once again, now on a more serious matter.

Issue is: It would be good if we could have a kind of planner along with mere tracking functionality.
Adding a wishlist/planner/todolist, whatever the name, has been on my mind since the very beginning. It's still something I want to do, and the calendar was a step into this direction. There will be more calendar related features in the coming months, and that one will be part of it, I just can't say when.

My todolist keeps growing, and I think that there's enough on it to keep me busy for at least another year

Altoholic itself does provide an LDB plugin, but as AnrDemon said, it's only a launcher. Despite that, I create an addon to track your currencies (emblems, honor ...), it uses the newly used DataStore part of Altoholic.
One could create several such broker addons by using data which DataStore .. well ... stores But as of now I don't know of any other addons that do those jobs.

Another topic, I still don't really get the gear browser part ... I find it too hard to use (so, I'll search for items, right? oh noes, I didn't want to go THERE...) and it's use is quite ... limited. Actually, I myself use AtlasLoot (and AtlasLootReverse, for the tooltip info. Altoholic's is just ... too out of date, sorry mate) + Pawn. I don't even know if Altoholic's browser works with all those weird mp5-patterns ingame, I know it didn't about half a year ago

Same problem as my pre-poster

recently, your datastore addons spam my error-addon quite a bit ...

i merged my data and that of another account and now receive errors en masse ... dunno if it's connected

also, when synchronizing those two accounts, it sometimes messes up bigtime, probably losing some data. you can see it when hovering - again - specific items, where it completely loses all tooltip lines. sometimes you can "fix" it by using a selective part of data to transfer.
imagine this:
character a from account A requests b from B to share his data. while synchronizing, hovering any item is fine. when synchronizing is done though, the tooltips will fail and provide no information but create heaps of error messages.

with the top one avoided (if-then-else query), this still pops up when hovering an item. first it was when hovering cobalt ore, now it's frostweave bandages.

it might as well be that i tempered around with your getcharacterclasscolor function as that threw errors as well .......

I guess you've never hit the (in)famous "block too big" client crash issue. Let's just say it's a factor for me.

it's primary intent of the addon...
Uh, no, there is nothing about standard game item tooltips mentioned in the addon info. I'm talking about the type of functionality that WhoHas provides, since WhoHas does not support Altoholic.

Feel free to download and install GearScore.
Again you misunderstand what I said. Altoholic says it has an item browser to help you find upgrades. I have an addon named Pawn that lets you use custom weight tables (much better than GearScore!) to evaluate individual pieces of gear. It would be awesome if the two were integrated (e.g. a Pawn value column on in the Altoholic gear browser).

It took me roughly 7 hours to find and answer your message. You could have knew all that already in less than a hour by yourself.
I'm happy enough with Armory at the moment that I can afford to wait for answers. I was at work when I posted yesterday, where I'm not able to access WoW. I installed Altoholic from Curse last night but it wasn't packaged properly and wouldn't run (was missing the Datastore dependencies), and I didn't have time to try again after re-downloading it from here.

Your condescending tone rubs me the wrong way but I do appreciate the reply nonetheless.

I.e. i'm leveling a number of alts, and they are in need of obtaining a certain level of reputation from specific factions.

2. Can Altoholic add info to item tooltips regarding which alts (bags, mailboxes, personal banks, etc.) / guild banks have how much of that item?
it's primary intent of the addon...

3. I see that Altoholic has features that help you find equipment upgrades. Have you thought about implementing weight tables or some kind of Pawn integration to help the user better evaluate gear?
Feel free to download and install GearScore.

4. Does Altoholic provide any LDB data feeds? You mentioned that it tracks "money, /played, rest xp for each character, subtotals by realm, and grandtotals for the account" so it seems like it would almost be redundant to run AllPlayed with Altoholic.
The only feed it provides is the LDB launcher to show/hide addon window.

Thanks!
Seriously, I think, these, and many other questions could easily be gone in a few moments, once you give addon a try...
It took me roughly 7 hours to find and answer your message. You could have knew all that already in less than a hour by yourself.

A couple of questions:

1. What is Altoholic's memory footprint like?

2. Can Altoholic add info to item tooltips regarding which alts (bags, mailboxes, personal banks, etc.) / guild banks have how much of that item?

3. I see that Altoholic has features that help you find equipment upgrades. Have you thought about implementing weight tables or some kind of Pawn integration to help the user better evaluate gear?

In search results, it does not display enchants on items.
(In bags, it does)

I didn't know that was what it was called but Quartz does this and so does Lightheaded. Addon's folder sure getting cluttered. Previous version of Altoholic only added the "Altoholic" folder is why I asked.

Re: Crashing on search function

Otherwise, not finding huge issues with the addon. It is an indispensable addon to me and I tell people about it ALL THE TIME. So many functions it is ridiculous! And in a good way, ofc.
Thanks

About the error message, if you can reproduce it easily, pm me with the error message (just the message, no addon list necessary). Make sure to mention the version you're using too (it should always be the last, but I prefer to ask).

Re: Using multiple accounts on same PC

As answered by AnrDaemon, Altoholic is an in-game solution, it does not provide any support outside of the game. If you cannot play both accounts at the same time, it's impossible to sync data, that's the way the wow client works, and the restrictions enforced by the game to preserve account security prevent to proceed otherwise.

All the API functions provided by the game only allow addons to query information about the current character, you cannot query about alts, you cannot query about other realms, and certainly not about other accounts. The existing implementation is functionally the best any author could come up with due to existing limitations.
