Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.1.003
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.

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.

- Thanks to the wowace community, you've been very helpful and this addon would not be there without the technical answers you gave me (especially Xinhuan, author of BankItems)
- 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: 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.


7.1.003 (10/11/2016)

- Added a row for the 12th character on both the achievements and grids tabs.

Note: that's a quick implementation, I still want to update a few things under the hood, but I figured you guys had waited long enough already.

7.1.002 (9/11/2016)

- DataStore_Quests: Fixed a tainting issue that prevented players from queuing into battlegrounds.
- DataStore_Talents: Added support for artifact data.
- DataStore_Garrisons: Added support for tracking of next artifact research.
- Summary tab: added an extra panel for artifact data.
- Summary tab: added a tooltip for all column headers, and some OnClick actions behind a few buttons.
- Summary tab: removed honor & conquest currencies, they were replaced by Order Hall resources & Seal of the Broken Fate.

- Fixed a few other Lua errors.

Note: I did some clean-up in the usage of localized strings in the Summary tab, some strings have to be translated, help appreciated :)

It happens here : https://wow.curseforge.com/addons/altoholic/localization/


7.1.001 (26/10/2016)

- DataStore_Quests: added an option to select the hour at which daily quests are reset.
- Updated the lists of achievements with the new ones added in Legion.
- The talent panel is finally back. You can now also see the stat priority when mousing over the specialization name.
Note: The priorities come from Icy Veins, although I have not respected them 100%, based on my own experience, view, and discussions with guild mates.
They are meant to be an indication for classes you do not play too often, and I do not wish to enter religious discussions about who is right or wrong, or about which stat is actually better :)
ex: in some cases, Icy Veins indicated that the primary stat (STR, INT, ..) has a lesser priority than mastery or crit ..
well, I still kept the primary stat as #1 in the list, because in most cases, you WILL have this stat on each item.
And if you reach the point where this difference matters, then you probably don't need the information any more, because you supposedly already know your class well enough.

- DataStore_Talents: major overhaul to support the new panel. Old functions have obviously been deprecated.
- LibCraftReagents is now deprecated, its functionality is now handled by DataStore_Crafts, which now has access to all recipes (even unlearned).
It's now 100% accurate and maintains itself (yeah, less code to maintain \o/).
Note: you should open each profession once to populate this internal reference table.
- DataStore_Mails: Fixed the invalid attachment counts in the tooltip for mails sent by guild mates.
- Removed LibBabble-Inventory, replaced the translations it provided by values returned by the game's API.
- DataStore_Quests: Fixed scanning quest links, which caused a Lua error when clicking on a tooltip.
Make sure to log in your alts once to fix their quest logs in the DB, this is what causes the tooltip issue.


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 !).

Hey there,

I just uploaded the latest version. It contains a fix for the most urgent bugs, namely the frame layering issue and the error in the achievement tab (+ a few minor fixes).

I know there's some backlog, I'll be working on it over the weekend.

About the glyph issue, I just found out about it, too late for a fix in this push, but it's on my list for the next release.

Thao

I've mentioned that earlier. Type "/framestack" and look to the order of frames. You'll be surprized.

Also the achievement section don't work at all.
Has been addressed even before that my reply, just read before post.

Not showing all the tool tips

When i go to the Characters tab then click on Equipment. All the equipment is there but when I mouse over them there is no tool tip. So you have no clue what they do. Also the achievement section don't work at all. Most everything else I use from Altoholic works.

V4.0.005

Thanks

Welcome back. I just submitted a bug report dealing with glyphs not being stored. Only noticed this happening after Tues patch so it may be related to some interface change made with the patch.

Hey, welcome back to the our little hell! I hope you allright, as do your family.

Regarding addon, there's one... or, well, two issues that probably most looming.
The layering issue, when item buttons became hidden behind some other frame and don't provide any feedback, and certain items don't get treated as themselves (Sorrowmoss would be one example), providing wrong tooltips regarding item amounts in posession. (The latter could be related to the changes in item links regarding reforging. It was last dealt in Enchantrix, you could take a peek at it's code for ideas.)

Thumbs up Updates

That's awesome news. I was looking into possibly doing maintenance on altoholic to fix some of the defects and that was looking to be a daunting task. I'm very pleased that you'll be doing it instead.

Achievement Error after 4.06 patch

To fix the Achievement error you get after the 4.06 patch, you need to edit Altoholic_Achievements\Achievements.lua and go to line 114.
The line starts with spaces and then [CAT_PVP_TOLBARAD].
Change the first set of numbers from 5414:5419 to 5718:5719.

Be sure to use a text editor and not something like word pad.

Don't use context menu to set focus. There's at least 3 other ways to do so, and two of them is just faster. (Read - better)

Crowd control, Focus and Altoholic

When I try to right-click a target to Set Focus on it, I get an error message saying:

"Altoholic has been blocked from an action only available to the Blizzard UI. You can disable this addon and reload the UI."

Do you have any idea what could be causing the issue?

And thank you for an amazing add-on - for someone with 30 toons it's a must-have

DataStore/DataStore_Mail, of course.

It absolutely IS true.
As long as you didn't checked mailboxes, it is unknown case.
Your clams have nothing to do with what Altoholic believe to be reality.
It does not pull data out of your claims, it only know what it know - last state of your containers/skillbooks/talents/equipment as seen by addon.
If you opened a mailbox, emptied it, and didn't logged off properly (You hit cross on the window, killed it through task manager, hit Alt+F4 (God! Hear me! When Blizzard fix this???), WoW/OS crashed, power outage and so forth), your new mailbox state wasn't saved. That's only one of the many possible use-cases.

What saved variables do I delete?
DataStore_Mail (should be enough)

Like I said, I never leave old mail in the mailbox,
I don't tell you're wrong. I only want to point to the simple fact that Altoholic apparently don't know that, and it believe you have some mail left unchecked.
If it keep bothering you even after rescanning of every mailbox, and Activity tab show no mail counters for any of your characters, then deleting <Account>/SavedVariables/DataStore_Mail.lua should clear all the doubt.

And WHERE exactly is this option? I've looked everywhere and it doesn't exist. Under the "Mail" section there are "New mail notification" and "Auto-complete recipient name." If it's the former one, then that isn't very self-explanatory.


That was too long ago and isn't true.
Revisit mailboxes, then check Activity tab on the Altoholic main frame.
If there's nothing, then you probably have stale data from deleted characters.
Clear your saved variables and rescan your characters.
It absolutely IS true. When I check my mail, I always remove and delete it all, so there is never any mail left behind. Unless there is a new mail envelope on the minimap, then I have no mail, new or otherwise, on that character.

What saved variables do I delete? The only characters Altoholic seems to check on are my existing 10. At least, those are the only ones listed in the Activity pane.


But you didn't bothered to actually check your mailboxes? How could you know, then?
Like I said, I never leave old mail in the mailbox, so to have checked my mail one month ago, or two months ago, or even longer, and to not have a new mail envelope now, means I have no mail in the mailbox at all. That's how I always do it.
