Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.009
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.

Credits

- I'd like to thank my guild, Odysseüs on EU-Marécages de Zangar, for assisting me since the earliest phases, thanks guys for everything you've done

- Thanks to all the guys who are behind AtlasLoot, keeping the loot table up-to-date is a tremendous work, and the search functionality of Altoholic would not be what it is without your hard work.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you're upgrading from 4.x :

- Make sure you delete the addon's databases in SavedVariables. ie: Altoholic.lua and all DataStore*.lua.
- Make sure to delete the old addon directories (Altoholic & all DataStore modules) as many files have changed/moved. A patch like this one is always a good opportunity for a fresh install.

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
- DataStore_Reputations: removed LibBabble-Faction.
- Fixed lua error when using the search function.

5.4.006 (22/07/2014)

- Fixed double item counts in the tooltip.
- Improved the search functionality to be less restrictive.
- DataStore_Containers now triggers extra events for client addons.
- DataStore_Inventory now triggers extra events for client addons.
- DataStore_Auctions now triggers extra events for client addons.
- DataStore_Mails now triggers extra events for client addons.

5.4.005 (21/07/2014)

- 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.
- Updated the AiL tooltip, level 60 & 70 dungeons are now commented (tooltip was getting long), and level 90 was added. (Thanks Pseudopath on WoWinterface)
- Fixed issues related to scanning void storage (Thanks Lombra !)
- Several minor fixes (Thanks Lombra again !!)

5.4.004 (07/10/2013)

- Fixed showing the item source for crafts in the tooltip.
- Fixed LibCraftInfo.

5.4.003 (06/10/2013)

- Created and added support for 3 new libraries : LibCraftInfo, LibCraftLevels, LibCraftReagents.
These libraries intend to replace the lost functionality caused by tables reset to zero in LibPeriodicTable.
I now have my own dataminer, so these tables should be easier to maintain when a patch hits.
I also cleaned up some hard coded tables to now use the libraries instead.
Overall, the addon now consumes a little bit more memory, but the data sources are way more complete than before.

- Replaced the internal list of recipes by LibCraftInfo.
- Fixed the Characters -> Profession pane no longer showing reagents due to LPT changes.
- Fixed the Grids -> Tradeskills pane no longer correct due to LPT changes.

5.4.002 (17/09/2013)

- Fixed profession levels reported as 0.

5.4.001 (11/09/2013)

- Added new 5.4 achievements.
- Removed a call to GetArenaTeam in DataStore_Stats.

5.3.003 (01/08/2013)

- Added missing reputations (Thanks Daovan !)
- The source of an item is no longer read/displayed in the tooltip if combat lockdown is active.
- Fixed a risk of profile reset when DataStore_Agenda is disabled.
- Updated glyphs (Thanks Zartsoft)
- Implemented RGriedel's fix for profession cooldown, hopefully they should be correct for both US & EU now (Thanks RGriedel!)
- Fixed a tainting issue in DataStore_Talents. (Thanks Warloxx!)

5.3.002 (29/05/2013)

- Fixed skill levels reported as 0.

Note: The problems does not fix itself with this new version. To fully fix it, you need to populate the database with new profession links.
To do this, log all your alts one by one, open their tradeskills, and ONLY THEN, open the skills pane in Altoholic to see that this character's
skill levels are ok. If not, it is merely a refresh issue.

As I said, the problem comes from the format of the profession links which has been changed by Blizzard, reload the whole thing, and you will be fine.


5.3.001 (28/05/2013)

- Fixed recipe colors at the Auction House (Thanks Elandril !).
- Fixed a lua error when DataStore_Agenda is disabled.
- Fixed profession cooldowns warnings, they are now hardcoded at 3 am (the game sometimes still returns midnight).
- Added a total AiL per realm in the account summary.

5.2.001 (12/03/2013)

- Added new pane in the 'Grids' tab to track dailies across all alts. Dailies are stored in DataStore_Quests and reset at 3am.
- Added 5.2 achievements.
- Added 5.2 pets.
- Fixed a bug while scanning reputations (Thanks Sylvannis !).
- Fixed a Lua error in the tabards pane.
- Added a safeguard to prevent tooltip errors when mousing over a recipe, this seems to be caused by other tooltip addons/libs.
- Added the Mantid archaeology race.
- Fixed scanning quest history.


Note: I have tried to look into an issue where profession cooldowns are announced at the wrong time, mostly for people playing on US realms.
Unfortunately, I could not make any solid tests (UK realms return me the same realm time as other EU realms .. weird).
If anyone can provide me with more info, I would gladly help.

Places to check in the code:
Altoholic\Events.lua: as of line 427
DataStore_Agenda\DataStore_Agenda.lua: look at how I set the variable clientServerTimeGap, see if results are consistent.

5.1.002 (24/02/2013)

- Updated both Achievements & Grids tab to show 11 characters per realm.
- Support for tabards is back.

5.1.001 (29/11/2012)

- Fixed 5.0.003 archive, DataStore_Achievements was missing.
- Fixed .Toc files not updated for 5.1 in previous release.

5.0.003 (28/11/2012)

- Re-fixed searching for heirlooms (Thanks JCinDE !).
- Scanning tabards is temporarily disabled, as it triggers an error I cannot fix right now.

5.0.002 (06/10/2012)

- Integrated the Void Storage to the container's UI (Characters -> Containers).
- Added Mists of Pandaria factions (Grids -> Reputations).
- Added Mists of Pandaria archaeology artefacts (Grids -> Archaeology).
- Added Mists of Pandaria crafts for each professions (Grids -> Tradeskills).
- Fixed a few Lua errors related to Battle Pets. They are temporarily NOT scanned at the Auction House.

Some features related to Battle Pets are now fully working, this is on my (neverending) to-do-list.


5.0.001d (13/09/2012)

- Fixed tooltips sometime being incorrect in Grids -> reputations & currencies.
- Fixed potential tainting issues due to the usage of the underscore in the code.
- Cleared a few source files that were no longer used.
- Fixed scanning of partially completed achievements.
- Fixed Lua errors that appeared in 5.0.5 due to a wrong spell ID for fishing.

Note about achievements:

Achievements partially completed on one alt. They will now appear a bit differently in the UI (especially when part of a series).
This is due to the values the game is returning.
Sometimes, the results may seem weird, BUT THERE IS NOTHING I CAN DO TO FIX THAT !

It also makes no sense for me that some achievements in a series are character based, while some others are account based.
Ex: 100 HK is character based, but 25000 HK is account based ?
If you too think there is a problem here, then complain about it to Blizzard, as I will not write code to work around those inconsistencies.


5.0.001c (03/09/2012)

- Fixed tooltip showing "No data" for herbalism in the Skills pane.. for good this time !
- Fixed a Lua error when scanning glyphs.. for good this time too ! (Thanks Sylvannis)
- Fixed a Lua error when clicking on glyphs, blaming DataStore_Crafts and/or DataStore_Achievements.

- Note: About pets & mounts. I know that they are now account wide, but I will leave things as they are for a little while, that is at least until the expansion launches.
I want to see how things actually turn out to see what has value or not, or what could be modified to remain useful.

5.0.001b (02/09/2012)

- Fixed a Lua error when trying to scan glyphs on a low level character.
- Fixed a Lua error when scanning Inscription.
- Fixed invalid profession spell id's for Fishing & Herbalism.
- Fixed version number in .TOC
- Fixed a Lua error when mousing over a specific cell in the guild members pane.

5.0.001 (02/09/2012)

- Added support for itIT. If you can help with the translations, please go here: http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/altoholic/localization/
- Updated Achievement lists, please advise if you notice errors (especially for horde players).
- Fixed many issues related to changes in MoP. Too much to list.
- Talent pane is temporarily disabled. It will be back soon.
- Changed all drop down definitions to prevent tainting (Thanks ckaotik !)
- Fixed a Lua error in Grids->Reputations when selecting guild reputation.
- Added missing Tol Barad achievement : Occu'thar (Thanks Daveo77)
- Fixed a few UI issues related to account sharing.
- Fixed searching item upgrades based on iLevel
- Moved the sumary tab into its own module, this is in preparation of future new features. If you encounter a problem due to this, please roll back to 4.3.003b. (Should be ok though)
- Fixed pets not sorted alphabetically in Grids->Pets.
- Added back the All-in-one view in Grids->Pets.

Talking Re: Bean Counter Problem!

Hi,

Your idea worked perfectly. As soon as I disabled "Scan Mail Body (Mark as Read)" it all works perfectly. However what are the consequences of disabling this part of your addon will impact something else as ussually disabling something like that has a cause and effect problem or maybe in this case not. What ever the case its working great and I am thrilled that it is makes life so much easier thanks heaps. If you think this is all that needs doing then maybe a little note for people so they are aware and don't bother you if they use auction mods to make sure to disable that part of the addon. Just a suggestion.

Thanks so very much

I'm almost done with the GUI update, so I think I should start looking into this by the end of the week. In the meantime, one thing you can try is something I had mentioned in an earlier post.

It seems that the issue was related to the mailbox, and that apparently BeanCounter was expecting mails to be unread, and Altoholic marks them read by default in order to read the body of a mail, but if you don't need this feature, you can disable the option "scan mail body" since it's not required to read attachments. It might be worth giving it a try if you haven't already.

Let me know

Thumbs up Re: WWI

Hi Thaoky,

Thanks for letting me know appreciate it would have been great to go and see. Glad Diablo3 coming out some time in the late future lol love Diable.

Also thanks for the feed back on WotLK ashame you couldn't play a Death knight hope I get to be a beta participant but knowing my luck hope in hell lol.

Not a big Starcraft fan but lots of mates are but must admit it sounds food doesn't it.

Thanks again for all your support and feedback greatly apprecaited.

PS: You have any time frame in regard to the AH mail box issue or is it on the back burner as low priority just curios not pushing just so you know. As I said all toons except one using it and that my auctioning toon so no reall biggy but would like the full functionality.

Thanks again

Re: Re: Fubar Problem

I'm glad it's working now, I could not think of any reason why it didn't want to appear, normally a full cleanup of the WTF folder should have been enough, but anyway .. :/

About the WWI, it was great, the D3 anouncement was amazing, seeing a guy come up on stage with a guitar and play the first notes of the Diablo theme was a great idea from Blizzard. I had a chance to put my hands on WotLK, but there's really not much you can do in 20 minutes, so I made some sightseeing. The machine I was on didn't allow me to play the DK, but I'm not worried, I'll test it in the beta

I also tested SC2, all 3 races, and they feel great, it still feels as magic as SC1, and the devs have shown us some cool techniques that will bring a lot to the gameplay. I guess we'll still be playing blizzard games in 5 years

Any yes for what ever reason I now have Altoholic on my Fubar please don't ask why all I know is that I have basically reset WOW to a new install and something at some stage must have become corrupt and effected your addon and no other addon which is really weird. Who really cares it works and thanks for all your help and patience and a great addon.

Hope you can work away around the mailbox issue with Beancounter and other Auction House addons for recording purposes as what I have done is disabled the addon for my auctioneer toons only and therefore still get full use so doing well.

Hope you have a great time at WWI wish I could go but am to disabled and in Australia doesn't help so if you can tell us what you thought etc that would be appreciated heaps.

Thanks again

Who really cares it works and thanks for all your help and patience and a great addon.

Hope you can work away around the mailbox issue with Beancounter and other Auction House addons for recording purposes as what I have done is disabled the addon for my auctioneer toons only and therefore still get full use so doing well.

Hope you have a great time at WWI wish I could go but am to disabled and in Australia doesn't help so if you can tell us what you thought etc that would be appreciated heaps.

Thanks again

Lightbulb Re: Fubar

Hi,

That is correct I don't get that at all. However after further investigation I have to do the fault finding not you as I installed it on my laptop with the currect version on WOWACE same as my PC and it works fine on the Fubar. Therefore there must be something going on somewhere or the cache or Blizzard folder effected. As I started all addons up first then tried process of elemination where as on Laptop only used Fubar and your addon with out issue. I will get back to you with what I try as I have had to do weird things like this in the past for other add on authors as I love add ons lol.

Leave it with me for a day or so and will let you know what I come up with if anything as no one complains in WOWACE forums or here on the contrary they want you to add options to the Fubar icon etc.

Thanks for your help hope I can help myself and you out now.

So you mean that after a fresh install you don't even see this ?

http://img46.imageshack.us/img46/7440/altohelp1xm3.jpg

If that's the case, then I have to get back to basics, can you tell me which version of altoholic are you using ?

It's normal that you don't see any option about fubar into Altoholic's option pane, the fubar icon is supposed to be there by default (see screenshot), and you shouldn't have to go into fubar's options to show/hide the text/icon, this happens when right-click the addon's name or icon, not simply anywhere over the fubar, but I guess you knew that already.

Let me know, we'll make progress on this.

Exclamation Re: Fubar

Hi,

I am using Fubar 3 and no other version. I have deleted all references to Altoholic and I do not have any options to select to have this on Fubar panel. This option screen only allows me to remove it from the minimap but no options to enable it on the Fubar panel etc (and nothing where you state below about having a choice I have nothing at all). I have made 100% sure that I have no redundant files including saved var files. When I right click on Fubar and select Altoholic it also has no option there for the Fubar panel only to display the addon, hide the addon, toggle it or disable the addon and do a search in the search field. Please help me as I have no idea why it won't work but it doesn't have any options on the minimap icon like all my other ace addons do that allow you to detatch from minimap, disable the addon etc they just don't exist. Right click you have set up for moving only and I don't know if that causes an issue. And as I have also stated done a complete fresh install of WOW and it still doesn't appear on Fubar. However having said that no one else seems to have made any comments at all or complaints so it sounds like its my problem but I have no clue where to start looking. I have also disabled everything except Fubar and Altoholic and still have the same problem so I know its not a conflict with another addon. I am using EN-Us client Alliance and horde as well.

Sorry about this just hope you can help me out. Also using your addon on all my toons except the AH toon so that I still get all the benefits of this brillaint addon sheer genious I say to put this together well done and thanks again,

Thanks in advance and looking forward to your reply

I like being able to add a key to my addons that have it. So i was wondering if you had thought of adding one or if others have asked about it. if this is something that can be done and might be in future update great. if not thats fine too. The work you have done on this add on is awesome . keep up the great work you have made it only better with each update.
Thanks

No promise, but I'll see what I can do about this.

Re: Re: Bean Counter Problem!

@Mindleglalaxy:

Thanks for your input, it will be helpful. As I said, I'm busy working on the GUI at the moment, so it will be a few days before I can look into this issue (+ I'll be at the WWI this weekend, wooooot ).

Regarding the icon, here's how it's supposed to work.

The first time you install the addon, an icon will be placed by default around the minimap, and there's an option into altoholic that allows you to show/hide it.

On top of this, if you have fubar 3.0 installed, you should automatically have an additional icon+text into the fubar, both of which can be shown/hidden. Would by any chance have an old AltoholicFu.lua in savedvariables ? if so delete it and try again.


To all: By the way, about the GUI being reworked, I'm now using tabs like at the real AH, it's leaving me more space to add new features (like sorting abilities), so if you have ideas, they're welcome

Exclamation Re: Bean Counter Problem!

Hi,

Just found out if I have your addon disabled I get a message on opening mail box that Bean Counter is now recording all your transactions (words to that effect anyway) (Sorry I didn't notice that sooner but the previous poster made me think of it instead of just doing without looking). But when I enable your addon that message doesn't appear at all and I get no records (Bean Counter) working but previous ones are there but no new ones work. So I think that the conclusion that its to do with the mail box is spot on. However having said that does it mean there is a way to fix it as it isn't just auctioneer its also any addon that records history of the AH. And it is obvious they use the mail box system for failure of auction or success etc as that is also a logical way to do it without being online all the time as that way it gives a record of all your AH transactions and there success without being online.

As far as Fubar what I mean is that I only get your icon on the minimap and cannot get it onto my Fubar panel at all. I have tried clean install clearing saved var etc and even tried a few things in the code but I am not that good with lau so wasn't successful. I don't want it on the minimap I would prefer it on Fubar as I use it more for common things and the minimap for other addons. I have my own little system lol. When I go into options there is only an option to hide the minimap icon but no reference to having it on Fubar and reading WOWace forums my understanding is that people have it on their Fubar. If I right click the icon on the Minimap I get no references to detaching it from Minimap like other ace addons? Hope that all makes sense?

Thanks heaps for looking into this its great to have an active author thank you heaps

Re: Two things

Originally posted by Sir Thorn
Well, three if you include me saying thanks for this addon.

First, regarding BeanCounter: My guess is that the problem stems from both mods trying to read the mailbox. I'm not sure if one is marking things read before the other, or something, but I've experienced the same thing. BeanCounter relies on the mails to see what items were (not) bought/sold, and for how much.

Then again, if the problem is regarding the new AH functionality, then disregard the above.

Anyway, second thing: I posted a bug on the bug report part of this website. Just thought I'd mention it since it still shows as "Unconfirmed". Would you rather things be filed as comments here?
I haven't had time to check this issue yet since the gui is completely upside-down at the moment ^^.

But what I can say is that I don't think it's related to the AH, because as I said earlier, I don't hook any AH function. Your suggestion about one marking mails read before the other makes more sense to me, since when Altoholic parses content, it will read the mail's body (there's an option to disable this, it might be worth trying), but this is only necessary if you want to read the text while not at your mailbox, you don't need it to read attachments.

So if BeanCounter does indeed rely on that, it's probably the cause of the problem. Let me know what you find out

I'll check your bug report. It's true that I don't check this part as often since not a lot of people use it.

Yes, there's an option to do this, in the "Options" pane.
