Altoholic  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.0.003
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 : [email protected]



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.

7.0.003 (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 !).

This was reported earlier and not strictly related to 4.1.
Try disabling DS_Achievements.

datastore_achievements slowness

I finally got a few minutes to track down an issue I have been having where I zone or resurrect and have a 15-20 second pause (spinning beach ball on a mac). After enabling and disabling addons I finally tracked it down to the datastore_achievements addon which altoholic is installing.

For giggles I also installed the latest "alpha" (r110) and it made no difference. As soon as I disable datastore_achievements my zone time drops from 25-30 seconds down to 4-5. I don't get any LUA errors.

I also told curse to download datastore_achievements separately and to use the latest alpha (r13) and it made no difference.

I have deleted my database files several times in case of corruption etc and again no difference it still takes 15-20 seconds longer to zone or resurrect.

@Gunner1236: No not yet, but I have had an idea on how to improve the character tab in a way that will please everyone (I hope), but I can't say in which order I'll work on these changes.

Suggestion

Grats on a new job. I'd like to know if there is a way to arrange / sort the list of characters on the character tab by level? It would be nice to be able to group my level 85 characters next to each other to make it easier to compare equipment.

Things are going to be a bit slow for a little while. I started into a new job a month ago, but with long commutes (2h30/day drive) + I had to find time to exercise as well due to problems with my back, so all in all, I have much less time to play/code than before.

The addon is not dead though

Hi all,

Things are going to be a bit slow for a little while. I started into a new job a month ago, but with long commutes (2h30/day drive) + I had to find time to exercise as well due to problems with my back, so all in all, I have much less time to play/code than before.

The addon is not dead though, I have started a new tab called "Agenda", along with DataStore_Agenda, which will take care of things already existing into the addon but that might not always have a UI on their own, but also of new features.

The new tab will contain :

- The calendar (moved from its current location), reviewed with as many fixes and suggestions as I possibly can.
- Contacts : A cross-character friend list.
- Tasks : Yes, the long awaited to-do-list
- Notes : A simple space to take notes, and share them if you want to.

.. and a few more things I have in mind, but it's too soon, as I really can't say how fast I'll be able to progress in the coming months. Changes have started though, DataStore_Agenda is already working, although I probably won't release it before more things are in place.

Double Listing on Herbs

For some reason, only with herbs, it lists things twice for the count.

Example (when mousing over Whiptail):

-------------------------------
Whiptail
Millable
Sell Price:

Character A 14 (Bags: 14)
Character B 361 (Bags: 161: Bank 200)
Total Owned 375

Character A 14 (Bags: 14)
Character B 361 (Bags: 161: Bank 200)
Total Owned 375
Item Level: 84
-------------------------------

It doesn't do this with any other item. It's strictly with herbs. When I hover nodes, it only shows the list once. It's only when hovering over the item in my bag, or from a chat link.

I'm using version 4.0.006b but it's done this for quite some time.

Any idea how I might recover that data? That's another 40+ chars I have to go in again to check mail.

Ok, I suggest you have a look at the content of the saved variables for all 3 accounts.

Location: wow folder\wtf\account\your_account\saved_variables\DataStore_Mails.lua

I would recommend using a good text editor (I like notepad++) to edit the files and see the actual content. You should see keys for all your alts, if there really is no mail in there, there is clearly a problem with the DB. I would be surprised since no one has ever reported that. But there might always be a bug either in the DB or in the UI.

Let me know what you find out.

Note that the addon cannot scan mailbox data if you are not physically at a mailbox. Version number is ok.

Btw, did you enable Lua errors ? Maybe an error was triggered and you missed it.

I didn't have Lua reporting on at the time. Did that, and now, when I logged in...got this error. Seemed unrelated:
