Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.0.006
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.


7.0.006 (03/08/2016)

- DataStore: Fixed guild identification when the character is on a different realm than the guild.
- Grids: Updated Archeology races and items for Legion.


7.0.005 (31/07/2016)

- DataStore: Fixed a lua error when getting AutoCompleteRealms.

7.0.004 (31/07/2016)

- Fixed issues related to connected realms (guild bank, tooltips, etc..)
IMPORTANT NOTE: a guild bank will not be scanned if it's on a realm that is not known by the add-on.

So if you have characters belonging to a guild from another realm, and you have no character on that realm, you will have to create a character on that other realm, and log him on once, just to identify the realm.

The API provides absolutely no way of matching a short realm name to a long realm name.
If your realm is a small name without spaces (like 'Dalaran'), then this might seem like a non-issue for you, but it makes it impossible to know precisely to which realm a guild belongs.
Basically, my workaround is about making the addon know that "Marécage de Zangar" is also known as "MarécagedeZangar" by getting rid of spaces.

This is an extremely imperfect solution, and I sincerely dislike it, but the API does not help in any way.
The solution should hopefully work across all localizations, but I can't promise anything.

Wanna help ? Relay this topic on the US forums :

http://eu.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/17612943218

and kindly bump..

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 !).

Not triggered by Altoholic unfortunately, but I commented the line in the latest version of datastore:

Now I want thank you for this amazing addon, this is the best I ever seen!
1) The only way to read the /played is to trigger the event manually, and several addons may do this at login. Altoholic is only doing it once.

2) I'd like to change the inventory too, or to be more accurate, add other views (like I did with the all-in-one), but it's not for the short term.

The Brewfest steins are causing "DataStore : method <version> is missing" error messages to be mini-spammed (3 - 4 times) upon drinking of said steins.

I've also been getting other LUA (interface) errors, about 12 in all with regard to other addons when drinking the steins. The DataStore errors are the only ones show outside of the LUA error.

I have currently disabled the showing of LUA interface errors in WoW and all is quiet now except for the mini-spam. For the record, I'm an Alliance dwarf running on an english client. I also am drinking with two steins (two-fisted drinker) because I can.

I have last year's blue stein and this year's green stein. I have to click on the brew barrels twice to fill up both steins. I dragged and dropped the filled steins from my character window to my button bars in Dominos like I've always done before. So it's click the barrels twice to fill, click each stein on the Dominos button bar to drink it and see the spam as I drink each one. Refill and repeat. Not game breaking or all that annoying considering that nearly everyone else on the server is there at Brewfest. So much text is flying by that it scrolls off-screen in no time.

I have the most-recent version installed, and I'm still encountering a couple of goofy issues.

The first some folks have pointed - I'm getting spammed upon login with all kinds of Calendar events, some of which are outdated and irrelevant. I have warnings disabled. I can't seem to make that go away, and the list just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

The other has to do with the deletion of guild banks. The error upon deletion is gone, but it doesn't seem to be properly deleting the banks. They stay in the guild bank list dropdown despite having been deleted. And if you select one of the deleted banks, you get a depiction of one of your other valid banks (main vault, not the tabs).

Not huge, but annoying. Thanks for the great work.

Data Transfers & Professions questions

Is there a way through the "All" checkbox to setup all toons to easily only share specific things? For example, If I'd like to share only the Trades, Bags, and Achievements from all my toons, is there any easier way than going through each toon one by one?

My other question is about Tradeskills. Is it possible for Altoholic to color known recipes in the AH that any toon on that server already knows? I know there are other addons that have the ability to do that, I'd just rather not use multiple addons for similar things.

Thanks for a great addon

There is an option to select everything to share. It's under options, account sharing, on the right hand side there is a box next to all, checking that will allow you to share everything.

If you have Titan installed with it's TitanXP module enables, it will print /payed too, there could be other modules doing so in existense.
For TitanXP,
diff Code:
  1. *** TitanXP\TitanXP.lua Wed Aug 19 20:08:22 2009
  2. --- TitanXP\TitanXP.lua Wed Aug 19 20:08:55 2009
  3. ***************
  4. *** 59,68 ****
  5. --- 59,70 ----
  6.   function TitanPanelXPButton_OnShow()
  7.        TitanPanelXPButton_SetIcon();
  8.        found = nil;
  9. + --[[
  10.        if not TitanPanelXPButton_ButtonAdded then
  11.                 RequestTimePlayed();
  12.                 TitanPanelXPButton_ButtonAdded = true;
  13.        end
  14. + ]]
  15.   end
(However, you are to fix CR->LF line endings first)

Uhm...

Hi,

I once mentioned a problem with Altoholic not detecting my Rogue Lockpicking Skill (on a german server)...

I just wanted to mention: This has been solved. I just realized my lockpicking skill is now correctly displayed in Altoholic.

Thanks for fixing it.

The old version was pretty easy to share account data with. Thanks.
Account Sharing has changed compared to the initial implementation.

Data Transfer Not Happening...

My wife and I updated Altoholic to the latest version this evening. We tried to share information between our two accounts. Altoholic said in was successful in transferring the Table of Contents, both ways. However, neither the copy of Altoholic on my PC nor the one on hers, shows any information about each of our respective accounts. What are we doing wrong? The old version was pretty easy to share account data with. Thanks.
