Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.2.007
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.

6.2.007 (12/09/2015)

- Added Garona & Harrison Jones to the list of followers not recruited at the inn.
- Fixed guild bank tab icons displayed as a red square instead of the tab's icon.
- DataStore_Achievements: Fixed a Lua error at logon.

6.2.006 (17/08/2015)

Imported all changes made in the unofficial releases made during my absence.
Many thanks to those who took it upon themselves to provide fixes for all those issues.
To prevent confusing users, I will resume the version number based on Zwixx numbering, so if you used a version up to 6.2.005, you have to upgrade to this version.
Some fixes made by me before the release I was supposed to make after 6.2 are also included, so make sure to upgrade.

- DataStore_Reputations: added 6.2 factions. (Thanks Zwixx)
- DataStore_Inventory: added LFR loots. (Thanks Zwixx)
- DataStore_Garrisons: Fixed a Lua error when scanning followers. (Thanks Zwixx)
- Fixed tooltip related issues. (Thanks Zwixx)

- DataStore_Achievements: Fixed an issue where an earned achievement was not immediately saved to the DB, and was only read at next login.
- Fixed a silly bug that prevented you from searching professions.
- Account Summary -> Clicking on the level of any character toggles the display of decimals. This option is remembered across sessions.
- Account Summary -> Clicking on the AiL of any character toggles the display of decimals. This option is remembered across sessions.
- Created some extra templates to simplify the code (more on the way.. this happens bit by bit)

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..

I added some more error-checking code in DataStore 3.2.002, at worst, if it fails, you'll get an error that will tell me where the problem is. Please get back to me if that's the case.

Re: Adjusting the tooltip info to reflect only 1 faction

Originally posted by Whitewolfxx

Sorry if this has been asked before and answered...

I rely on Altoholic for crafting glyphs. I have a scribe on both the Horde and Allied faction so I don't need the two faction totals added together. I read, from patch notes dating back to January, that the option of showing both faction totals in the tooltip was added. This seems to be the default setting for me.

Is there still a setting to force the tootip to display only the inventory totals of a single faction? (It would help me eliminate some crafting errors i make at 3am without enough coffee in me.) And could somene take the trouble to tell me where it might be?

Thank you in advance for your help.
There's an option for that in Options -> Tooltip. Let me know if by any chance you notice an inconsistency with it.

Error deleting guildbank

I recently left a guild on one of my chars and now I want to delete the guildbank of that guild from Altoholic. When I try to do that I get an error.

I open Altoholic, select the guildbank tab, select the guild I want to delete and press the delete button. Then I get the following error message

Code:
Message: Interface\AddOns\Altoholic\Frames\TabGuildBank.lua:139: bad argument #1 to 'wipe' (table expected, got nil)
Time: 09/14/09 18:21:54

[string "*:OnClick"]:2: in function <[string "*:OnClick"]:1>

Locals: (*temporary) = nil
(*temporary) = "table expected, got nil"
When I click away the error message I see the text "Altoholic: MessageBox hangler not defined" in my chat window.

I am having the same error as well as a problem with Altoholic showing that i have more of a item in the ah then i actually do.

How do I go about cleaning my SV file?

Edit: I discovered that datastore files, as well as my sv.lua files, in the wtf folder needed to be deleted to reset all my alto data.

Re: Re: Can't view equipment for more than 10 chars on a given server...

Originally posted by Thaoky
It's not stupid, other people have asked this before, but you will understand that I cannot support a solution that is OS-based. At best, I wrote small safeguards to make sure that things don't break when there are too many characters. The built-in account sharing is the only way to go so far.

A side-by-side view is something I've had in mind for a while though, but that won't be implemented until blizzard allows us to have more than 10 chars per realm (for 4.0 ? who knows..). It's not that it can't be done, it's that I'm receiving a lot of feature requests, and I have to prioritize them. It's not a no, it's a maybe, but a very long term one
Hehe, I totally understand.

Hmm, is there no "quick and dirty" way to just allow the viewing of simply ONE character's equipment (at a time)? Doesn't have to be fancy in the least - just functional... I was hesitant to just dive into the code and see if I can't hack something together, since then I'd have to re-apply the patch each time a new version came out

The hard-linking of directories makes every other aspect of Altoholic (and other addons) work so beautifully, except this one

Not having to re-set-up an addon (that supports profiles) each time I add a new one - regardless of which account I'm on - is invaluable; I can't lose the hard-linked directories :-/

Anyway, thanks for the response, I guess I'll have to just try hacking something in that will "work", for now -- or find some supplemental addon

I understand. Life striked me too, a bit.
Another issue related to tooltip that i've spotted recently, but not yet reproduced, i've had two items in my inventory, one on me only and another on me and other char, strangely enough, moving mouse from one item to anotehr and back persistently showed me data for first item, but moving mouse away to something else non-item-related and back to item2, it showed correct data, then moving to item1, it show data for it, back to item2 - no change, still data for Item1.
I'll try to get more info today.

I would like to reach the point where this becomes possible. What bothers me the most at the moment is that LibTradeLinks deprecates itself after a patch (through version control) and I need to understand why the author decided to do that (there must be a good reason, I just didn't dig into the whole thing enough to understand it). It's a goal anyway, and if/when DataStore gains a bit more visibility, maybe other authors will help making that a reality. [/b]
With about every patch, the link format gets changed and no longer works, even ingame - the 3.1.3 links stored in macro became unclickable in 3.2.
The current scanning routine could be kept as fallback to LibTradeLinks and to determine the recipe colors. Also comparing tradelinks is a fast faw to decide if the book needs rescanning, which is a good thing, as tradelink is not altered by filtering.

I left a note in a forum post written by ArkInventory's author suggesting him that DataStore could be interesting for him (since he was trying to optimize his DB), that would be some work for him, but the benefits would be important

When the feature is enabled, a person could check up to 10 boxes on the main page to have that information shown in the frames like armor where there is a 10 toon limit. This is probably not the most elegant solution, but I have been unable to come up with another alternative. How difficult would this be to include as a feature, Thaoky?
As far as the design is concerned, there's nothing to worry about, I already know perfectly how I'm going to do it, it's just a matter of priority

Indeed, I don't want to reveal everything yet, but there are other features I would like to implement that will require similar code execution paths, so maybe it will get into the addon sooner than I expect.

That gives me 60 days before I have to figure out what to do with that item. Altoholic showing mailboxes on tooltip makes this much nicer but it lacks the ability to tell if expiring mail is going to return to an alt or be deleted. Can you add that and also give an option to disable expiring mail warning for stuff returning to my own alts? That would be very welcome.
I added early support for that in the next version. The option is not there yet though.

Yes, I know that subject sounds stupid, but I have multiple accounts, and I have the account directories hard linked (NTFSLink) so that I can share addon data cross-account. This is awesome for most Altoholic-related stuff, but tragic for the Equipment View.

Since I therefore have more than 10 characters on a given realm, the "View Equipment" tab is basically broken/somewhat-useless for me. I end up seeing some of my mules' equipment, rather than "real" characters, for example

I'm not sure the best way to prevent this, unless you are willing to have an alternate view where you simply see a single character's equipment (rather than the nice side-by-side for (up to) 10 chars).

Perhaps give the side-by-side view a left-right scroll? Or some way to select which characters are shown?

Thoughts?

Or am I just SOL?

It's not stupid, other people have asked this before, but you will understand that I cannot support a solution that is OS-based. At best, I wrote small safeguards to make sure that things don't break when there are too many characters. The built-in account sharing is the only way to go so far.

A side-by-side view is something I've had in mind for a while though, but that won't be implemented until blizzard allows us to have more than 10 chars per realm (for 4.0 ? who knows..). It's not that it can't be done, it's that I'm receiving a lot of feature requests, and I have to prioritize them. It's not a no, it's a maybe, but a very long term one
