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.

5.4.009 (08/08/2014)

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.

Version 3.2.001c Archive...

I downloaded Version 3.2.001c today. The file I got was 1250246113-Altoholic.zip. Upon unzipping, I got the following list of folders in the folder I use to unzip archives:

Altoholic
DataStore
DataStore_Achievements
DataStore_Auctions
DataStore_Characters
DataStore_Crafts
DataStore_Currencies
DataStore_Inventory
DataStore_Mails
DataStore_Pets
DataStore_Quests
DagtaStore_Reputations
DataStore_Skills
DataStore_Spells
DataStore_Stats
DataStore_Talents

Normally, I would copy the contents of an archive to my:

World of Warcraft/Interface/Addons folder. Did you really mean for me to do that in this case? Seems like I am going to really clutter up the works if I do that. Seems to me you could have put all these DataStore folders inside the Altoholic folder. Let me know. Thanks.

That's entirely possible, when I uploaded the file on curse svn, I got a few errors that had to do with encoding, and converted a few files from ANSI to UTF-8, so I suspect that would be the issue. I find it weird that a tool messes up the file format anyway, such tools are supposed to automate tasks for you, not change content on the fly.

The best thing to tell to the WUU guys is simply not to change the format, or to make sure that whatever API they might be using does it, that's the kind of issues I've seen in previous jobs.

I've found a little bit more about my unusual problem as reported previously. First, it appears that WUU does screw up the files it extracts in some fashion. They gain an extra carriage return at the end of lines. I'm not sure why this should affect things, but in 3.2001b, it prevented me from using Altoholic at all. 3.2001c still has a couple of errors, but works perfectly otherwise, so that's a boon. To find out why this was a problem, I did some testing, and here's what I found.

It looks like several of the .lua files in Altoholic are encoded as UTF-8. I manually converted them over to ANSI, and that fixed all of the problems I was having. I'm contacting the WUU people because I think whatever WUU uses to unzip the files is damaging their formatting, or has some sort of a bug when extracting UTF-8 files. If I install Altoholic manually, from the website, it works perfectly, no errors. So I've got a workaround that works, and I'm going to stick with it.

Thaoky, could you help me identify more about what's going wrong here though? Here's a dump of the sort of errors I'll still get after having WUU install 3.2001c:

Date: 2009-08-14 10:29:41

If you need, I can post an sblocked copy of any files you need from my install. If you can help me identify in what way the formatting bug screws up Altoholic, I should be able to pass that along to the WUU guys.

In LSW, lilsparkysworkshop.lua around line 1936 (in my version, didn't download the latest), you'll find this code:

Code:
if event == "TRADE_SKILL_UPDATE" then
  if GetTradeSkillLine() then
    LSW:CreateTimer("updateData-UpdateEvent", 0.1, LSW.UpdateData)
  end
end
Can you comment the LSW:CreateTimer() call and see how it impacts performance ? Let me know.

Could you make this quick test please ?

Disable all addons except altoholic, then try again, and see if it's still the same. Let me know
Hey

You can't gain new recipes just from raising skills. Thus there's no need to scan tradeskills at all in this event.
Just look in Skills pane, which skill has changed it's level and that's all you need, I believe.
Let me go a bit more in details. Assume the profession is tailoring and has the following content:

- Bag
Woolen Bag
Linen Bag
- Cloth
Woolen Boots
Woolen Cape
- Miscellaneous
Gray Woolen Shirt
Red Linen Shirt

Where the headers are obviously Bag, Cloth and Miscellaneous.
If all headers are expanded (as they are in my example), calling GetNumTradeSkills() will return 9, because there are 9 lines (3 headers and 6 crafts).

If all headers are collapsed, only this is shown:

+ Bag
+ Cloth
+ Miscellaneous

.. and GetNumTradeSkills() returns 3, meaning that you CANNOT know the content of a given category, which is why, prior to every scan, I call ExpandTradeSkillSubClass(i) to make sure I will "see" all content. The problem is that this call triggers the event TRADE_SKILL_UPDATE, to which I DO NOT respond because I personnally think it triggers way too often.

I only make a full scan in these situations :

- When the tradeskill window is opened
- When the tradeskill window is opened and a skill point is earned (thus after a green, yellow or orange craft), and ONLY if a point was earned.
- A partial scan (that does not trigger TRADE_SKILL_UPDATE) is also performed after every craft to see if a cooldown was activated, but this one is extremely fast and does not expand/collapse any header.

And actually, you can gain new recipes (cfr alchemy) after crafting an item, so to me, the way it happens now makes sense. That does not mean it can't be perfected, but it's quite close to what it should be.

For instance, collapse all headers and you'll have maybe 10 lines, when there are actually 200 crafts in the profession. So expanding them all is mandatory, and collapsing/expanding triggers TRADE_SKILL_UPDATE which LSW reacts to.
Sorry, but this makes no sense.

what can i do to change this?

PS. My Favorite Addon
DAMN Good work
Just to put that out of the way, do you have a decent computer or a very old one ? The code triggered when mousing over an item is consistent, but shouldn't make you lag that much.

Could you make this quick test please ?

Disable all addons except altoholic, then try again, and see if it's still the same. Let me know

Some results regarding stutter investigation.
When only Altoholic is loaded, it shocks early at the end or immediately after first craft of the series. Not enjoyable, but neither it's deadly.
With Altoholic+LSW it stutters every once right AFTER craft, when item appears in the bags.
RecipeRadar (the only other addon i could think about, that would have an impact on tradeskill window) was disabled.
In tests, it was both grey and colored craft with skillups.
Interesting input.

What happens after the first craft is most likely the scan for cooldowns, this one does not trigger TRADE_SKILL_UPDATE though, it read the visible lines only, so it does not mess with other addons. I've looked at the code executed by LSW when TRADE_SKILL_UPDATE is triggered, and no offense, but I think he does he bit too much in there.

Again, as I mentioned earlier, I do not scan the tradeskill window anymore if no point is gained, so grey recipes should not yield to any slow down :/

Although the Curse copy is actually different from the WoWI copy, both seem to work normally if I install them myself and bypass the whole WUU reformatting issue.
Weird, I don't use any automatic updater, so I have no idea what's going on.
About the difference between curse & wowi, it's usually temporary, it depends how long the admins take to validate the file (curse is often a bit slower).

Usually it throws up tons of 'attempt to concatenate field that is nil' errors, or undefined value errors and the like. I've been working with a fresh install of Altoholic, after having deleted the saved variables, to no real success. Anyone run across these sorts of issues? Most of them seem to be oriented around DataStore_Character, and it can't seem to record character data.
Could you just provide me with one or 2 of them ? Or screenshots ?
I'd like to find out why this happens. Thanks

Re: Mail Expiring Warning

Altoholic remains one of my favorite AddOns ever, it makes my WoW-life so much easier, so many times a day (10 characters, all classes, all professions)! Thanks sincerely for all the work you've put into this thing.

One quick thing I noticed after updating a couple days ago - the Mail Expiration warning window used to pop up only once, on login (I'm pretty sure - admittedly my memory can be dodgy). Now it seems to re-pop up every time I zone, or die, or enter an instance, or leave an instance, etc. It's like a nagging wife that won't leave me alone hehe - just wanted to mention.

Keep up the awesome work!
Thanks for the support

The expiry warning is fixed in my version, I'm working on a few other fixes before releasing it though.

If you want to fix it yourself, you can simply do this:

Edit Altoholic.lua (in Interface\addons\altoholic), find this line (around 1585) :

Altoholic.Tasks:Add("CheckExpiries", 1, Altoholic.Mail.CheckExpiries, self)

and move it back at the end of OnEnable() (around line 240).
