Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.3.001
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.

7.3.001 (04/09/2017)

- Caged pets are now properly recognized in the inventory.
- Search tab : fixed caged pets not being returned in the search results.
Note: caged pets stored in the guild bank are not correctly visible. This is due to the game returning different item information for the caged pet when it is stored in the guild bank vs in your bags.
If someone knows a way around this, I'm all ears :)
- Search tab : fixed mythic keystones not being returned in the search results.
- Made some improvements to the emissaries' panel, progress is now shown for each alt/zone. Quests are now sorted by expiry time (closest to expiry at the top). Thanks Paintstorm & Caspianroach for the suggestions.
- Account Summary : Improved formatting of artifact power in the tooltip.
- Grids -> Sets : added some extra filters for sets (faction + PVP type).
- Characters -> Quests : the panel is being rewritten, but I have to face the facts, it won't be ready anytime soon, and the release has been delayed long enough.
If you cannot live with this panel, edit the file Altoholic_Characters\Frames\Quests.lua, and delete lines 219+220 in the Update function.
Note: rendering is primitive, you just have a list of quests, and the filter in the "Quests" icon does not work. Categories are listed, but that's all.
Sorry, I had hoped this would have been ready for 7.3 .. but Blizzard released sooner than I had expected.

7.2.003b (01/06/2017)

- Fixed minimap icon not being properly restored at logon.

7.2.003 (01/06/2017)

- Fixed a bug where searched results were not shown in the proper quality (ex: upgraded items).
- Changed the navigation of the characters' tab. In order to win some real estate for future updates, I have removed the drop down list that allows you to select the realm.
You can now select alts from other realms directly from the character icon.
- Updated Herb and Mining Nodes, that was long overdue. (Thanks 2TailedFox !)
- Fixed a lua error in the search tab.
- Fixed Midsummer achievements.
- DataStore_Quests: now tracking emissary quests
Notes about emissary quests:
- There are 2 places to view the status of your emissary quests: Grids -> Daily quests & Grids -> Emissary quests
- In the 'Daily quests' panel, you can view the emissaries that you have COMPLETED TODAY, they will be reset every day, like any other daily quest.
Since there is no way to determine when they should actually reset, it's the best compromise.
- In the 'Emissary quests' panel, you can view the emissaries that are in your characters' quest logs, meaning that these are the quests NOT YET COMPLETED.
Because the quest log is only scanned when you log on, make sure that you log on with your alts on a regular basis, otherwise you will see outdated information in this panel.
- These 2 panels complement each other, it is intentional that they show you what has been completed vs what has not.

- Brought back a name to the minimap button frame, goes against my principles, but I love you guys that much!
(the fear of an army of angry users armed with pitchforks may have changed my mind though :P)
- Added a new panel in the grids tab : Sets !
In this panel you can see all the transmog sets you collected, across all classes.
This panel shows you all set variations that exist, even some that are normally hidden until they have been collected (Tier 3, darkmoon faire, other faction ..).
If you were wondering what to do with all those marks of honor.. here is your chance to spend them :p
The whole thing was quite complex to implement and required a deep dive in the data, and a crapload of manual work.
Mapping the whole table of sets took me a few days.
Some days I believe Blizzard organizes their data in such a way in order to mentally torture addon authors..
But anyway, I'm quite happy with the result, and hope you'll enjoy it too :)

A few notes about this panel :
- Due to the amount of manual work, it is possible I have mistakenly copy-pasted a wrong set ID. If you identify one, please let me know.
- If you mouse over a set and see "Fetching item data ..", mouse away and over it again, this is due to the way the game handles the item cache. Nothing I can do about it.

!! Important tip for the crazy set transmog collectors out there (like me :p) :
I was not really sure if looting a given piece of equipment that is not for your class is actually registered into your list of transmogs.
While running Sunwell with my mage, I dropped a piece that was part of the warlock set, and it actually counted.
I could not see it directly in the addon, because I only read data for the current alt, but when I logged my warlock, the piece was definitely there.
It also means that if you are hunting for specific parts, you can run a legacy raid with alts having the same armor type.
That will not work for all pieces, but for some, it helps :)

It clearly does not work for weapon types you can't equip. I looted a nice bow with my mage, but my hunter did not have the transmog.


- Added a new library : LibMVC
LibMVC modifies the way frame templates are implemented.
Previous version relied on "class extensions", which were a first step towards a proper MVC pattern.
This is something I wanted to do ever since Blizzard added the 'parentKey' attribute in XML.
The current version is getting close to AngularJS and class extensions are now called controllers (as they should).
A goal I have had for a long time but never had time to implement was to support some sort of inheritance,
so that the OnLoad of a frame could call the OnLoad of the frames it derives from.
There is no way to do this natively, hence this new library.
Using AngularJS a lot at work has helped seeing clearer through this.
LibMVC also supports injecting services into controllers, as in Angular.
I have not decided yet if I will implement data binding, that might happen, but at a later stage.

This is 100% transparent for users. Devs on the other hand may be interested in checking the simple implementation.
The whole addon has not yet been corrected to support this, so those who are curious should check the Guild or Achievements tabs, they're pretty clean.


7.2.002 (28/04/2017)

- Fixed a bug assigning gained artifact xp to the wrong artifact.
- Fixed a Lua error when scanning an artifact's data.
- Added the faction Armies of Legionfall.
- Changed format of large numbers displayed in the Artifact pane.
- Added support for Nethershards and Legionfall War Supplies (Thanks AlexSUCF !)
- Sending a mail to an alt no longer update its last mailbox visit time
- Added Legion fishing achievements
- Moved enUS at the top of each locale.xml to load this locale first (never knew this was an issue :/)
- Valor currencies now being properly tracked

7.2.001 (29/03/2017)

- DataStore_Talents : Fixed a few issues when scanning artifact data (Thanks AlexSUCF !)
- DataStore_Talents : Fixed an issue when artifact XP was updated.

Note: I haven't had time to play much tonight, but I did not discover urgent issues. I'll keep testing tomorrow & Friday and will post a fix if anything break.
At the very least, I'll have to test the new reputation paragons to see if anything is broken on that side.

It's not. Complain to FuBar, if it is still supported by author.

Ahh, yeah exactly the same thing (I used NTFSLink before I swapped to a Mac Desktop back in 2006), and sad that there isn't a solution. As I said, I found Altoholic as I was looking for a way to track raid reset times on all my characters, and was actually overjoyed with all the additional info this addon provided. However, when parts of it don't work for me, I don't see a point carrying all the overhead of this addon. Back to the drawing board for something as simple as a LDB/FuBar compatible display of Raid Resets per character (basically the calendar functionality of Altoholic)..

Viewing Reputation / Achievements

So I just started using Altoholic, and have run into a bit of a problem.

I have 5 accounts (yes I am a TRUE alt-o-holic) and use a Mac. I actually use Symbolic Links to manage my settings (basically all 5 accounts settings are stored in one big directory, as I don't really multi-box, and when I do, I have some complicated scripts to make a second copy of wow, syncing the settings, etc., so again, no big deal). So my Account directory looks like this.

lrwxr-xr-x 1 user admin 6 May 22 20:33 ACCOUNT2 -> ACCOUNT1
lrwxr-xr-x 1 user admin 6 Sep 24 12:38 ACCOUNT3 -> ACCOUNT1
drwxr-xr-x 20 user admin 680 Oct 1 12:33 ACCOUNT1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 user admin 6 Jul 21 2008 ACCOUNT4 -> ACCOUNT1
lrwxr-xr-x 1 user admin 6 May 22 20:33 ACCOUNT5 -> ACCOUNT1

Which all of wow has no problems with, and it makes things really nice for managing settings, etc. But this also presents a problem for Altoholic and it's Reputation / Achievements tab (and I'm assuming with the account sharing setting as well, this could be re-produced as well). As I have 33 characters in my Summary screen, but when I go to view Reputations or Achievements, it only shows 10 (and it seems to like to show my level 1 bank alts), with no way to page forward or backwards through characters.

I assume this is just something I will have no way of controlling, as who has more than 10 toons right? I mean honestly, the reason I grabbed the Addon was that I have 6 80's, and trying to remember who has done what instance every day/week was completely out of control (especially when I'm on a low level alt, and I'm watching LFG, and see a group for something I want (VoA, Ony, etc.)), and Altoholic has completely solved this for me. But I was really digging the rest of the features as well, than I hit this brick wall. So would love to be able to fix this, or at least filter the display of toons on this tab to my 80's.

When Client is closed, indeed.

Anyway, here it goes. I'm having some issues with the Calendar feature of this addon. I play both horde and alliance. On my horde guild I'm able to see all the events my guildmates post on the Calendar (in my alliance guild only certain ranks can see the events; which tbh is a good thing as not all members raid or are able to attend special social events etc etc). After opening the Calendar all those events get "registered" with the character in question and stay there forever even if the event date is over and they keep on displaying every time I log into the game. And not only that but they keep on displaying for all my toons on this realm whether alliance or horde...

Let me give you an example to make it more understandable. Say I log onto my horde warlock. I open up the calendar and there are 6 raid events planned. All of them (whether am I able or willing to attend them or not) get "registered" with my warlock. Then I log onto my horde mage. The events show up as registered with my warlock in the chat frame. I open up the Calendar with the mage and those same events get "registered" with him as well. Next time I log onto any other of my toons whether alliance or horde those events will be displayed in the chat frame along with the characters "registered" something really annoying and spammy... And this will be happening even after those events are outdated and over with new added to the list...

Yes I know this is my guild's fault tbh because they haven't set any rules on who's able to see the events in the Calendar or not but it would be nice if we get some more options regarding the Calendar in Altoholic... (Purge events etc, clean up unattanded raids etc)... Unless this is something already implemented and I'm missing the obvious...

And while we are at it, it would be great if we get some options to purge unwanted data not only in Calendar but in general...

It needs to be worked on, some items are already on my list too. About the entries being listed for multiple characters, it's something I need to check, but there's no unique identifier for events, so it would need custom checking. I'll see what I can do.

About outdated events, I added some more cleanup in my version already.

This multiplying of the items also shows up on tooltips where it lists how many of a given thing my characters have.

Again I'm not sure when this started, I tried to look back through old comments and couldn't see anything, but I'm not that observant so might have missed it.

Thanks for a fabulous addon!
I'd need to get a screenshot + your DataStore_Mails.lua to see what went wrong.

As long as you have BeanCounter scanning mail, or have sent it from your alts, it WILL be tracked.

Sorry, I had missed that one. Edit DataStore_Containers.lua (the source, not the SV file), go to line 211:

Change:
Code:
for bagID = NUM_BAG_SLOTS, NUM_BAG_SLOTS + NUM_BANKBAGSLOTS do
Into:
Code:
for bagID = NUM_BAG_SLOTS + 1, NUM_BAG_SLOTS + NUM_BANKBAGSLOTS
Do the same with line 538.

Visit the bank with your alts, and you should be fine now.
I know this solution as I sent it to you via email and PM along with the Wowiki page on bag id's where I found it

BTW anyone else making this change you still need to include the do at the end of the replacement line.
