Altoholic  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.0.002
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.

7.0.002 (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 !).

Hello,
Love this addon. Saves me so much time. I am, however, getting an error on each login/logoff of characters. I'm not sure if it's Altoholic or TomTom related though since both addons are mentioned. Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks for the response!
It's known issue, and i suppose, it's in Altoholic or one of it's modules.

I've seen your posts, and know you're a busy man, but was hoping you could take a look at this wierd little issue I'm having.

I have 2 tailors. One of them knows the recipe for Merlin's Robe. The tooltip tells me he has it, which is fine, and it shows the other tailor that could learn it, which is also fine. It also shows 2-3 other toons as being able to learn it (none of them are tailors).

Another issue. A LW I have, has the Lunar Eclipse Robe pattern. It correctly shows that he knows it, but displays 2-3 other toons as also knowing it (none of them LW'ers, oddly enough, it's the same toons involved as above)

Any ideas, cos I'm at a loss as tho how to fix it o0

Thanks

Edit: used the options to delete all my toons, logged them in one at a time, opened all tradeskill windows, and the problem persists :/
Merlin Robe recipe is one known to have such issue, as well as some other.

Hey guys,

I don't have much time to reply to everyone here & on the Curse page, but be sure I read your posts and take notes. To give you an idea of what to expect in the future, here's what's going on behind the curtain:

- Account sharing: many requests revolve around the fact that it's a bit slow. Although it will always remain a rather slow process, I have worked on reducing the sizes of the DB. For 12 chars, DataStore used to take 4.2Mb on my machine. It's now gone down to 2.5-2.6Mb, which is a pretty nice improvement.

- Calendar: The calendar is the second biggest topic for which I am receiving feedback. It will get a review too, but keep in mind that it's not necessarily easy to test certain things (like multiple time zones, etc..), so it's a part I consider pretty touchy. I do however want to address certain login issues through the implementation of a small pane that I currently call the "Login Report", where you'll be informed of all the events that took place while you were logged off (ie: mail expiry, calendar events, profession cd, etc..).

- Modularity: I am slowly making the addon more modular, and each tab will become a LoD module on its own, as it is already the case with the achievements tab, and I'll also shuffle a few things around, but it's too early to say how things will look like in two months as it really depends on the new UI features Blizzard decides to add (and on the new API functions too).

- Professions: If things turn out as I expect, professions should get their own tab for some cool new features. I really can't make any promise though, as it will depend on several factors.

Etc..

As you can see, there's still a lot to do... and that's without mentioning all the features I intend to add in Odyssey as well, altough this one won't get a public release before at least a month or two after Cataclysm.

Talk to you soon

Thao

Suggestion for better (user-owned) account linking

Dear Addon Author,

I two-box World Of Warcraft Constantly. While I am on one account, I constantly have people want to know if I can make such and such from a character on another account who may not be logged in. I use the same WoW installation to run both my accounts simultaniously on the same computer. I have tried to link the two accounts together, however, I am finding it to be rather buggy. On one character, it is showing the same toons belonging to it's own account for the default account and for the linked account.

If you could provide the user with the capability to link an actual path to the nesessary files contained within the wtf directory, it would make things much simpler.

Thank you.
TPranara
