Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.0.006
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 : [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.


7.0.006 (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 !).

It seems like it actually IS connected! I noticed today that I accidentally named the second account's data wrong ... so I ended up with my own data plus twice the data of the other account. When I deleted the data from the first time I synched I couldn't help but notice the error flood went missing.
Might just be random, but as of now, I don't get that error any more. Hurray!

One more thing: When I transferred those "faulty" bits of data (the first time) it took forever ... also, Altoholic didn't quite like the idea of both sides sending and requesting data at the same time. Maybe something went wrong there wich caused a little (or not so little) data inconsistency

You guys are both right actually. Under normal conditions, no addon could cause a crash. But in certain cases, it's possible to cause deadlocks when 2 addons respond to one another without knowing it. I once faced a situation where I was responding to certain values being in the tooltip, and the presence of another addon made it so that the conditions were filled when I did not expect it, and only in another foreign language. Result ? deadlock & freeze. Solution ? I used my own tooltip object instead of GameTooltip.

Deadlock or crash, it's roughly similar, bad code = problems. I strive to limit my mistakes to classic Lua errors

Lua as a language is designed to be run in sandboxed environment, thus it's perfectly acceptable to say that nothing you can do with Lua code should harm client to the level of instability. The worst issue you could normally achieve is a hard lockup (endless loop in a co-routine f.e.)
That's not quite true. People have written small addons that replicate the "block too big" bug, which also results in a client crash:
http://forums.wowace.com/showthread....933#post241933

There are also at least 3 threads on wowace that show addons like CowTip triggering the issue:
http://forums.wowace.com/showthread.php?t=17001
http://forums.wowace.com/showthread.php?t=14666
http://forums.wowace.com/showthread.php?t=12076

I ditched a lot of addons during TBC to get away from that issue (especially Rock-based addons like CowTip) and I'm now more leery of addons that use a lot of resources.

I can't understand, what you are trying to say. Can you please put it in simple words, without a reference to something outside of the discussion?
I won't bother because I've now tested Altoholic and determined that it does indeed provide the feature despite the fact that nothing about tooltips is explicitly mentioned in the addon description. Had the word "tooltip" appeared anywhere in the addon description, I wouldn't have asked the question.

Uh, no, there is nothing about standard game item tooltips mentioned in the addon info. I'm talking about the type of functionality that WhoHas provides, since WhoHas does not support Altoholic.
I can't understand, what you are trying to say. Can you please put it in simple words, without a reference to something outside of the discussion?

Again you misunderstand what I said. Altoholic says it has an item browser to help you find upgrades. I have an addon named Pawn that lets you use custom weight tables (much better than GearScore!) to evaluate individual pieces of gear. It would be awesome if the two were integrated (e.g. a Pawn value column on in the Altoholic gear browser).
It's all subjective and tend for consideration.
I'm using RatingBuster with a hand-made script to ease it's usage.

I'm happy enough with Armory at the moment that I can afford to wait for answers. I was at work when I posted yesterday, where I'm not able to access WoW. I installed Altoholic from Curse last night but it wasn't packaged properly and wouldn't run (was missing the Datastore dependencies), and I didn't have time to try again after re-downloading it from here.
It's understandable. Please don't take my comment as a personal offense.

Thanks for the reply.

I tried Altoholic for myself last night and noticed a similar memory footprint for 8-10 characters. 4MB is pretty acceptable for the amount of data being tracked.

One could create several such broker addons by using data which DataStore .. well ... stores But as of now I don't know of any other addons that do those jobs.
Well, depending on the complexity, it might be worth adding that into DataStore directly, if DataStore modules can provide LDB feeds, it would further simplify the life of authors

Help would really be welcome because I'm starting to have a hard time keeping up with the load of work alone

Another topic, I still don't really get the gear browser part ... I find it too hard to use (so, I'll search for items, right? oh noes, I didn't want to go THERE...) and it's use is quite ... limited. Actually, I myself use AtlasLoot (and AtlasLootReverse, for the tooltip info. Altoholic's is just ... too out of date, sorry mate) + Pawn. I don't even know if Altoholic's browser works with all those weird mp5-patterns ingame, I know it didn't about half a year ago
Actually, it's true that it might not be too obvious, but to find gear upgrades, you have to be in the equipment pane, otherwise, you wouldn't see the stats. I have plans to further improve the search feature, but again, it's quite big and I can't say when that will happen.

also, when synchronizing those two accounts, it sometimes messes up bigtime, probably losing some data. you can see it when hovering - again - specific items, where it completely loses all tooltip lines. sometimes you can "fix" it by using a selective part of data to transfer.
imagine this:
character a from account A requests b from B to share his data. while synchronizing, hovering any item is fine. when synchronizing is done though, the tooltips will fail and provide no information but create heaps of error messages.

with the top one avoided (if-then-else query), this still pops up when hovering an item. first it was when hovering cobalt ore, now it's frostweave bandages.

it might as well be that i tempered around with your getcharacterclasscolor function as that threw errors as well .......
I'll dig this in detail to see what's going on. Thanks for reporting.

1. What is Altoholic's memory footprint like?
With 10 fully loaded alts, I'm using around 4 mb, spread over Altoholic and the various DataStore modules. It scales with the amount of characters you have, but it's nothing to put your machine on its knees, unless it's an old one.

I saw your comment about the "block too big" issue, nothing to be afraid of, I'm always extra cautious when it comes to memory allocation (I'm a C programmer too).

Originally posted by Hevanus 2. Can Altoholic add info to item tooltips regarding which alts (bags, mailboxes, personal banks, etc.) / guild banks have how much of that item?
Yes: Banks, guild banks, mailbox, AH.

Originally posted by Hevanus
3. I see that Altoholic has features that help you find equipment upgrades. Have you thought about implementing weight tables or some kind of Pawn integration to help the user better evaluate gear?
The equipment upgrade takes your item level and/or item stats (tooltip parsing) and finds upgrades in a way that is similar to the official armory, try it or look at the screenshot, it's pretty explicit.

I haven't used Pawn, and I do not intend to review this feature in the near term (not before 4.0, since blue will change the way stats are treated).

Originally posted by Hevanus
4. Does Altoholic provide any LDB data feeds? You mentioned that it tracks "money, /played, rest xp for each character, subtotals by realm, and grandtotals for the account" so it seems like it would almost be redundant to run AllPlayed with Altoholic.

Thanks!
No data feed, only a launcher. At best, I could implement the feeds in DataStore modules, but I'd clearly need info on that (sorry, no time to dig for it myself right now).

Hmm... I can remember this has been mentioned before, but now, I got to it once again, now on a more serious matter.

Issue is: It would be good if we could have a kind of planner along with mere tracking functionality.
Adding a wishlist/planner/todolist, whatever the name, has been on my mind since the very beginning. It's still something I want to do, and the calendar was a step into this direction. There will be more calendar related features in the coming months, and that one will be part of it, I just can't say when.

My todolist keeps growing, and I think that there's enough on it to keep me busy for at least another year

Altoholic itself does provide an LDB plugin, but as AnrDemon said, it's only a launcher. Despite that, I create an addon to track your currencies (emblems, honor ...), it uses the newly used DataStore part of Altoholic.
One could create several such broker addons by using data which DataStore .. well ... stores But as of now I don't know of any other addons that do those jobs.

Another topic, I still don't really get the gear browser part ... I find it too hard to use (so, I'll search for items, right? oh noes, I didn't want to go THERE...) and it's use is quite ... limited. Actually, I myself use AtlasLoot (and AtlasLootReverse, for the tooltip info. Altoholic's is just ... too out of date, sorry mate) + Pawn. I don't even know if Altoholic's browser works with all those weird mp5-patterns ingame, I know it didn't about half a year ago

Same problem as my pre-poster

recently, your datastore addons spam my error-addon quite a bit ...

i merged my data and that of another account and now receive errors en masse ... dunno if it's connected

also, when synchronizing those two accounts, it sometimes messes up bigtime, probably losing some data. you can see it when hovering - again - specific items, where it completely loses all tooltip lines. sometimes you can "fix" it by using a selective part of data to transfer.
imagine this:
character a from account A requests b from B to share his data. while synchronizing, hovering any item is fine. when synchronizing is done though, the tooltips will fail and provide no information but create heaps of error messages.

with the top one avoided (if-then-else query), this still pops up when hovering an item. first it was when hovering cobalt ore, now it's frostweave bandages.

it might as well be that i tempered around with your getcharacterclasscolor function as that threw errors as well .......

I guess you've never hit the (in)famous "block too big" client crash issue. Let's just say it's a factor for me.

it's primary intent of the addon...
Uh, no, there is nothing about standard game item tooltips mentioned in the addon info. I'm talking about the type of functionality that WhoHas provides, since WhoHas does not support Altoholic.

Feel free to download and install GearScore.
Again you misunderstand what I said. Altoholic says it has an item browser to help you find upgrades. I have an addon named Pawn that lets you use custom weight tables (much better than GearScore!) to evaluate individual pieces of gear. It would be awesome if the two were integrated (e.g. a Pawn value column on in the Altoholic gear browser).

It took me roughly 7 hours to find and answer your message. You could have knew all that already in less than a hour by yourself.
I'm happy enough with Armory at the moment that I can afford to wait for answers. I was at work when I posted yesterday, where I'm not able to access WoW. I installed Altoholic from Curse last night but it wasn't packaged properly and wouldn't run (was missing the Datastore dependencies), and I didn't have time to try again after re-downloading it from here.

Your condescending tone rubs me the wrong way but I do appreciate the reply nonetheless.
