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.

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 !).

I play on the English client and I believe it was on my Rogue, who has Enchanting and Skinning. I forgot to mention this also happens with Cooking recipes. I'll check to see if this happens with my other characters with other professions.

Wow, was only looking for an addon that shows the alt's quests, and now this. Looks like I can turn off a lot of other addons...

I just released .013, and since there were a few bugfixes around this, could you let me know if this still happens ?


@Arhynion: thanks, I'm glad you like it

Well, it isn't alone. I was getting maybe 4 addon errors last night. This one was persistent, occuring each time I logged with any of my characters. Another was also Altoholic. Some equipment slots were blank but still showed the item info on mouse over. But an error occured on the initial mouse over but not subsequently. Logging a character filled in the blank slots.

Something of not much consquence. I have noticed that mailbox items sometimes are grayed out, like they have previously been viewed, when I first open my mailbox. This begain when I started using your addon so I wonder if Altoholic is making the game think mailbox items have been viewed.

BTW, this is a VERY usefull addon and I like it very much. And a question. The Armory is useful for finding equipment upgrades but it is slow and buggy. And does stupid things like listing quest items only available from opposite faction quests. I expect this would require a LOT of work but it sure would be usefull. Is this possible?

1) The fact that you have to relog a character is somewhat unavoidable, the thing is that blizzard clears the local item cache means that items in your alt bags are unknown. The best thing would be to completely clean the lua database, or to relog all characters once before playing with the addon.

2) The mailbox items are grayed out because I'm reading the body of the mails, this is not a bug, but there's an option (scan mail body) that can be disabled if you dislike this.

3) I don't intend to implement quest rewards, as the loot table I'm using comes from AtlasLoot, but I intend to implement a "Find upgrade" feature that will propose upgrades based on the item level (+ item type of course). Should happen soon

@Everyone:

I identified bugs in frFR because Blizz EU changed a few names AGAIN without documenting them. "Premiers soins" is now "Secourisme".

I suspect other changes in frFR, and most likely in deDE too.

If you notice any problem with professions and you're playing in frFR or deDE, please keep in mind that this is certainly related. Do not hesitate to submit this information here and I'll update asap.

Also, I've been reported issues with fubar, issues that I had solved in the past (2 icons when fubar is not installed), but I couldn't reproduce them. Still checking though.

@Atarius: Thanks a lot for the feedback.

@boutbout: I'll upload a fix as soon as I can, but until then, this is what you can do :

- Open the file ...\Altoholic\Libs\LibBabble-Inventory-3.0\LibBabble-Inventory-3.0.lua

Change line 786 from

["First Aid"] = "Premiers soins",
to
["First Aid"] = "Secourisme",

I also advise you to delete your lua database in savedvariables after you did this. Reload wow and it should be ok.

Edit: I just found out what the problem is. The thing is that you must have another addon that uses LibBabble-Inventory3.0, and until the library is updated (I'll try to do this tomorrow), you need to manually make the same hack in the other addon's version of the library. My friend found it in rating buster & atlas loot, but they're probably not the only addons that uses it.

I'll update shortly anyway, but in the meantime, this will solve your problem.

I only need to add a message box to confirm deletion, and the option will be perfect.. haven't had much time lately, I went to the essential.
