Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.1.006
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.

Paypal donations accepted at : thaoky.altoholic@yahoo.com



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.

6.1.006 (08/05/2015)

- Updated list of archaeology projects with WoD projects. I apparently messed up and lost the file that contained the update in 6.1.001, it's now ok.
- Moved several UI templates to their own folder.
- Completely rewrote the Blizzard's DropDownMenu widget to use my own version.
I was tired of some of the constraints of their implementation, and of the loss of time it caused me every time I wanted to use one.
So I invested some time in making it my way.
- Account Summary -> The amount of uncollected garrison resources now appears in yellow when resources exceed 300, and in red when they exceed 450.
- Account Summary -> Added icons with drop-down menus to filter your list of alts by faction, level, profession and class.
- Account Summary -> Fixed the expand/collapse button that did not work anymore after the complete rewrite of the pane.
- Achievements lists updated ! (Thanks Bluemage29 for your help !!)
- Fixed a Lua error when viewing the Guild tab with an character not in a guild.


6.1.005 (20/04/2015)

- The garrison mission tooltip now shows a red exclamation mark '!' when no missions are active.
- In the account summary, the last column used to sort the view is now remembered, and is restored when you log in again.
- Character's tab: fixed a lua error when mousing over the professions' icon of a character that does not have 2 professions.
- Account Summary: modified the garrison followers pane to show followers at iLvl 675 and a column for their weapon/armor iLvl.


6.1.004 (11/04/2015)

- Fixed sorting the account summary by "Last Online" where the order was sometimes incorrect.
- Added an option to show the tooltip counters without details (no 'equipped', 'bank', ..). Disabled by default.
- No longer wiping the list of followers before scanning them.
- Added a tooltip to the garrison resources in the account summary, it now shows when resources were last collected, and when you will reach the maximum of uncollected resources.
- Fixed incorrect tooltip after multiple searches in the search tab.
- DataStore_Garrisons: Some clean-up to properly report active missions.
- The garrison mission tooltip that shows a '*' when missions are complete now shows it in red if all active missions are complete.

6.1.003 (07/04/2015)

REMINDER: If you are looking for a free Heroes of the Storm Beta key for the European Region, you should check the comments section on Curse & WoW Inteface.. I still have a few keys to give away.

- Fixed a few lua errors in the account summary tab.
- Added Draenor LFR dungeons to the Grids->Dungeon Finder pane.

6.1.002 (06/04/2015)

- Updated scanning of currencies (honor points), total no longer needs to be divided by 100 since 6.1.
- Updated the garrison followers pane in the account summary to show followers with an iLvl greater than 660.
- DataStore Characters: updated GetRestXPRate() to account for Pandaren extra rest xp.
- Fixed Auction House scanning, and cleaning of expired auctions.
- The summary tab has been fully rewritten so that all 6 panes use the same frames.
This will make the addition of future content much easier.
Some new features here and there while I was at it (quality of life improvements mostly), I'll let you discover them :)
This is an update I wanted to do for a long time, and there are more things planned (more filters).. the other tabs will get an update too.


6.1.001 (25/02/2015)

- Added support for Garrison missions ! Warnings are not in yet, but available and active missions are now visible in the characters' tab.
Note: Active missions can only be correctly tracked if the mission is started with this version of Altoholic, so currently active missions will be visible, but their expiration will not. Sorry, this info is not provided by the game, I have to "manually" keep track of it.
- Fixed the spam of mail expiry warnings, this time for good (hopefully ! feedback appreciated on this one!).
- Now refreshing the follower's pane immediately when the followers' list is updated.
- Updated list of followers not recruited at the inn.
- Updated list of archaeology projects with WoD projects.
- Cleaned up the .pkgmeta of DataStore modules, my sources tell me this should prevent some problems with the Curse Client :) (Thanks Myrroddin !)
- Removed "already known/could be learned by" information from tooltips for companions, as they have been account-wide for a while.
- More code cleanup.

Note: I made several attempts at fixing the double guild bank counters in the tooltip, thanks to all of you who sent me their SV files, the issue is now clear.
Nevertheless, a complete perfect fix is not yet possible, as Blizzard does not provide the real/full realm name to which the guild actually belongs.
The best I can get in my case is "MarécagedeZangar" when I actually expect "Marécage de Zangar", and that value is nowhere to be found in the API.
Long story short, I have to come up with a way to work around this that does not force you guys to respect weird conditions to make it work..


6.0.004 (09/01/2015)

A massive code cleanup was performed, it should be mostly transparent for all of you, but code maintenance will be greatly improved for me.
I also simplified a lot of XML frames with new conventions that Blizzard had activated certainly a while ago, but that I never had time to change.
It's not finished, but it's a step in the right direction :)

- Many options were not saved correctly, this has been fixed, as a result, these options have been reset (tooltip options, etc..)
This options bug had, among others, impact on the account sharing feature that couldn't be launched anymore, Thanks Elfana for helping me on this !
- DataStore_Garrisons: Fixed scanning collection of garrison cache resources. It could occasionally be wrongly reset when getting resources from other sources.
- DataStore_Garrisons: Followers are now stored based on their id's, instead of their names. You will have to check your missions' table again with your alts to update follower information.
- DataStore_Garrisons: added a slider to configure when the reporting for uncollected resources should happen (350 -> 475)
- Grids -> Garrison Followers: added a drop down list to filter followers on whether they are collected, not collected, and if they were recruited at the inn or not.
- Garrison blueprints now appear in red if already known, I applied the same rule as for BOP recipes from Garrison trainers, thus any BOP item with "Already known" will appear red in a merchant frame.
- DataStore_Agenda: fixed another Lua error at logon introduced with previous fix. (Thanks again SpareSimian!)
- DataStore_Mails: added an option to report mails about to expire to the chat frame, in addition to the already existing dialog box. This will allow you to see on which alt the mail can be found. Please keep me informed if you detect real bugs thanks to this.


6.0.003 (27/12/2014)

- DataStore_Garrisons: fixed a bug where saved buildings are deleted from the DB.
- Added tracking of uncollected garrison resources. They can be seen in the currency pane of the account summary.
- Added a warning when uncollected garrison resources are >400 on a given alt. There is an option to disable this warning if you want to.
- Added Garrison-related achievements, now listed in a proper way in the achievements' tab.
- Checked recipes that kept appearing in green at garrison trainers.. there was no bug actually, recipes stayed green because they could be learned by other alts.
What I did instead is to check if a recipe is BOP. If it is BOP, and already known, it will appear in red.
- Removed mounts from the addon, as they have been account-wide for a while now. The icon is still there as a placeholder in the grids tab though.
- DataStore_Pets: removed all mount-related functions and data tables.
- DataStore_Mails: fixed a bug where the addon kept complaining about old mails about to expire. This one is long overdue, thanks to Wispor and Elfana for helping me on this one !
- Fixed "Player not found" message. (Bug 779 / Thanks Phinar !)
- DataStore_Achievements: fixed an error caused by achievements with invalid id (as returned by the game's API). (Bug 792 / Thanks SpareSimian)
- DataStore_Agenda: fixed a Lua error at logon. (Bug 792 also / Thanks SpareSimian)

6.0.002 (24/12/2014)

Seven Year Anniversary Edition.

Today is the seventh birthday of Altoholic, and I wanted to take a moment to thank the community for its patience and support.
2013 was a difficult year on a personal level, and 2014 was extremely busy at work.
As you have all seen, the amount and the pace of releases was not the best in these last 2 years, nevertheless, I remain committed to keep the addon alive, even if it will sometimes be on a "best effort" basis.

I had originally planned to make a release a bit earlier, but life came in the way, and truth be told, it's not a bad thing that the release happens today, as the last time I actually made a release close to the addon's birthday was for the 2-year anniversary.

To celebrate this wonderful day, I am releasing the first garrison-related features, it's not much, but it's a step in the right direction. I hope you'll enjoy it.

I will be peacefully resting at home for the next 2-3 weeks with some spare time on my hands though, and I intend to work on garrison missions + resources, and also on several fixes that are long overdue.

Enough said.. let me finish by wishing you all the best for 2015, for you and your families, and of course for all your alts :)

.. on to the changelog !

- New DataStore module : DataStore_Garrisons !
Note: You have to visit the missions table to scan followers, it doesn't work otherwise.

- Grids tab: added a pane for Garrison buildings.

It still showed my bank toon on another server (only alt I've logged in on that isn't on my main's server), if that helps any.
Well, if you tell me that you still see an alt that isn't supposed to be there after cleaning the SV file, then I guess you deleted the wrong SV file ..

In earlier versions, I was registering an SV file per character, which was basically useless (it was there since the beginning, I wasn't sure if I'd need it or not back then), so are you sure you're not deleting this one ?

If you're deleting in WTF/account/your_account/savedvariables/Altoholic.lua, you're deleting the right one. Be sure to delete Altoholic.lua.bak as well.

If you're deleting in WTF/account/your_account/savedvariables/YOUR_REALM/character/Altoholic.lua, you're not.

Anyway, as I made a few changes in my version to change the GUI, and part of these changes should reduce the risk of such error, which I really think is due to a corrupt SV file. Let me know how things turn out.

Hi Thaoky, just thought I'd follow up with the errors I reported. I still get that error (and a few more), but after some testing of various scenarios, I'm pretty sure something's messed up on my end (probably with my SV file). Anyway, just for completeness (and so I don't spam this page a with wall of bug traces), I'm going to list those errors in the same bug report just in case you want to take a look.

Re: Re: Bean Counter Problem!

The way it works is simple. Whenever a mail is read, I can decide to only check attachments or to include the body of a mail as well. If for instance you have a mail like this:

"Hi, blablabla ..."
Attached gold: 10G
Attached items: 3

There will be 3 entries in the addon for the attachments, 1 for the gold, and 1 for the mail text (gold+text are sometimes combined if I remember correctly). If you disable this option, you will simply not get the mail text. All the rest will works normally.

The reason why this is configurable is that the API function that reads the body of a mail marks it "as read", which is disturbing for some users, and obviously for some other addons as well.

I'll add tooltips to most options soon, it will be more obvious.

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

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.
