Altoholic  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 6.0.001
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 : thaoky.altoholic@yahoo.com



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.

6.0.001 (17/10/2014)

- Added a pane in the Grids tab to track LFR lockouts across alts.
- Added support for the new void storage tab + reagent bank.
- Updated achievement lists.
- Updated tradeskills data (Grids tab)
- Fixed WoD related issues.
- DataStore_Reputations: fixed WoD compatibility.
- DataStore_Reputations: LibBabble-Factions is back.
Note : seriously Blizzard why on earth is GetFactionInfoByID no longer returning data for the opposite faction's reputations?
- DataStore_Talents: talents & glyph scanning is temporarily fully disabled. UI is still missing too, sorry about that.
- DataStore_Quests: fixed WoD compatibility.
- DataStore_Containers: Added support for the new void storage tab.
- DataStore_Containers: Added support for the new reagent bank.
- LibCraftInfo: updated for WoD.
- LibCraftLevels: updated for WoD.
- LibCraftReagent: updated for WoD.
- Currencies pane: removed unrequired tooltip.


5.4.009 (08/08/2014)

- Uncommented the code that actually deletes linked realms.. silly me !
- DataStore_Crafts: reworked the processing of events that actually trigger profession scanning.
Note: The current implementation is based (not 100%) on how professions are scanned in Ackis Recipe List (thanks Ackis :D).
So far the tests I have made show a serious improvement, but the way events are triggered may not be 100% consistent, especially with regards to the TRADE_SKILL_UPDATE event.
The addon should no longer miss scans (please report if you notice problems).
- DataStore_Mails: fixed some problems related to merged realms, it should now work without problems anymore.
- DataStore_Mails: fixed issues where mail attachments (sent or returned) could be saved twice in the recipient's mailbox.

Changes by ckaotik (Huge thanks !)
- DataStore : Read addon version from .toc
- DataStore : Current character/guild key can now be used by character/guild based methods
- DataStore : added a few methods to support overriding methods
- Many minor fixes in DataStore_Achievements, Agenda, Containers, Crafts, Inventory, Mails, Talents
- DataStore_Quests : fixed tracking of completed quests

5.4.008 (27/07/2014)

- Fixed MoP factions showing up as numbers.
- Suggested leveling zones are back in the account summary.
- Added an option to reset links between merged realms (some realms were marked as linked though they were not)
=> DataStore dropdown in the Account Summary
- Added an option to completely reset the DataStore databases, without having to manually delete the files in the SavedVariables folder
=> DataStore dropdown in the Account Summary

- Added an option to remember the faction filter across sessions. (Grids -> Reputations)
- Added an option to remember the currency filter across sessions. (Grids -> Currencies)
- Added an option to remember the companion filter across sessions. (Grids -> Companions)
- Added an option to remember the mount filter across sessions. (Grids -> Mounts)
- Added an option to remember the tradeskills filter across sessions. (Grids -> Tradeskills)
- Added an option to remember the archaeology filter across sessions. (Grids -> Archaeology)
- Item counts for guilds on merged realms should now be visible too (sorry can't test this myself).


5.4.007 (24/07/2014)

- Added missing faction "Emperor Shaohao".
- Altoholic: removed LibBabble-Faction
- DataStore_Reputations: removed LibBabble-Faction.

- Improved the search functionality to be less restrictive.
- DataStore_Containers now triggers extra events for client addons.
- DataStore_Inventory now triggers extra events for client addons.
- DataStore_Auctions now triggers extra events for client addons.
- DataStore_Mails now triggers extra events for client addons.

5.4.005 (21/07/2014)

- Fixed bugs related to full names (name+realm) in the Guild tab.
- Added a pane in the account summary to show the PVE & PVP currencies.
- Added tooltip support for connected realms.
Note: DataStore needs to learn about connected realms, to do so, send 1 mail to an alt on a connected realm.
The connection is understood both ways (realm A to B, and B to A) with a single mail.
If you are connected to more than 1 realm, send 1 mail per link.
Ex: for 3 realms, send 1 mail from realm A to B, one from A to C, and one from B to C.
The mail can consist of just text, no attachment or gold required.
- Added an option to show/hide item count from connected realms.
- Added support for mails sent to/returned from alts on connected realms.
Note: Realm names are packed ("Marécage de Zangar" => "MarécagedeZangar") by Blizzard, this is supported.
If you notice something weird with your realm, please report it.
- Altoholic: removed LibBabble-Zone
- Updated the internal loot table and removed duplicate entries also found in LPT.
- DataStore_Inventory: removed LibBabble-Zone.
- DataStore_Reputations: removed LibBabble-Zone.
- Removed leveling suggestions from the character level tooltip in the account summary, as this information is now part of the game's world map.
- Updated the AiL tooltip, level 60 & 70 dungeons are now commented (tooltip was getting long), and level 90 was added. (Thanks Pseudopath on WoWinterface)
- Fixed issues related to scanning void storage (Thanks Lombra !)
- Several minor fixes (Thanks Lombra again !!)

Enabling all the Datastore & Altoholic modules prevents this error, but it shouldn't be necessary to have them all turned on IMHO. For example, I don't want to track quests, auctions, or mails.

Just though of a performance improvememnt.
Suspend any container/AH scanning activity for a while, until AuctionProgressFrame goes away.

First off love the addon as always! Don't know how I played WoW w/o it.

I'm having some odd problems. I can't get the trade skill info to save. I've opened the windows and left them unfiltered etc.

I just reinstalled too so the setup is very fresh with almost no addons running yet. The very few I have are like bartender/prat. Nothing that even deals with trade skills or storing info or anything.


Also clicking the achieve tab generates this:

..rface\AddOns\Altoholic_Achievements\Achievements.lua:247: Achievement ID 1187 not found in GetAchievementInfo

Clicking on any achieve categories does this:

...ce\AddOns\Altoholic_Achievements\TabAchievements.lua:70: attempt to index field 'Achievements' (a nil value)

If you want anymore specific info just let me know.

I had tried that on the first install but didn't think of it after that. Just went through entire WTF folder , my 2 main accounts, and the 2 'trial accounts' that for some reason are there, and cleared out any record of Alto/Data Store variables and although it cleared out all toons' inventory's , it seems to have fixed to currency situation. Not sure why the other account would have affect on anothers files but hey, it worked

Thanks very much for your time and reply.

Well, since DataStore (essentially - Altoholic) does not store any historical information, loosing data is not an unbearable consequence, I'd say.
Maximum you would need to do is to revisit each character, and open skills/touch bank and mailbox.

Indeed all's gone along quite smoothly now with it having a clean slate. Thanks once again.

Viewing more than 5 toons at a time problem

Is there a setting that lets me view more than 2-5 toons at a time when viewing Equipment, Reputation, Currency, Companions, Mounts, and Achievements? I used to be able to view 10 at a time, but now, I'm lucky to see 5 toons. I have deleted all of the Altoholic and Datastore variables several times but still can't see more than 2-5 after logging in all 10 from a realm.

Patch for recipe coloring with Auctioneer's CompactUI

I replaced AuctionFrameBrowse_UpdateHook() with the following and my testing with and without Auctioneer seems to be working just fine. I'd love it if this could be incorporated. Please redirect me if this should be posted elsewhere to make sure Thaoky sees it.

Thanks!

Code:
function AuctionFrameBrowse_UpdateHook()

	local AuctioneerCompactUI = false;

	Orig_AuctionFrameBrowse_Update()		-- Let default stuff happen first ..
	
	if addon:GetOption("UI.AHColorCoding") == 0 then return end
	
	if IsAddOnLoaded("Auctioneer") and Auctioneer.ScanManager.IsScanning() then return end;

	if IsAddOnLoaded("Auc-Advanced") then
		if AucAdvanced.Scan.IsScanning() then return end;
		if AucAdvanced.Settings.GetSetting("util.compactui.activated") then
			AuctioneerCompactUI = true;
		end
	end


	local offset = FauxScrollFrame_GetOffset(BrowseScrollFrame)
	local link
	for i = 1, NUM_BROWSE_TO_DISPLAY do			-- NUM_BROWSE_TO_DISPLAY = 8;
		local button = _G["BrowseButton"..i];
		local trueID = 0;
		-- Auctioneer Compatibility
		if (AuctioneerCompactUI and button:IsVisible()) then
			trueID = button.id;
		else
			trueID = button:GetID() + offset;
		end
		link = GetAuctionItemLink("list", trueID)
		if link then		-- if there's a valid item link in this slot ..
			local itemID = addon:GetIDFromLink(link)
			local _, _, _, _, _, itemType, itemSubType = GetItemInfo(itemID)
			if itemType == BI["Recipe"] and itemSubType ~= BI["Book"] then		-- is it a recipe ?
				
				local _, couldLearn, willLearn = addon:GetRecipeOwners(itemSubType, link, addon:GetRecipeLevel(link))
				local tex

				if (AuctioneerCompactUI) then
					tex = button.Icon;
				else
					tex = _G["BrowseButton" .. i .. "ItemIconTexture"]
				end

				if tex then
					if #couldLearn == 0 and #willLearn == 0 then	-- nobody could learn the recipe, neither now nor later : red
						tex:SetVertexColor(1, 0, 0)
					elseif #couldLearn > 0 then			-- at least 1 could learn it : green (priority over "will learn")
						tex:SetVertexColor(0, 1, 0)
					elseif #willLearn > 0 then			-- nobody could learn it now, but some could later : yellow
						tex:SetVertexColor(1, 1, 0)
					end
				end
			end
		end
	end
	AltoTooltip:Hide()
end

Hi there,

I will be cleaning a few posts for readability. An update is coming today, I'm reviewing bug reports for things I may have missed, then I'll upload 4.0.005.

Thaoky

edit:

@DeathOfLuggage: I cannot see the other Altoholic modules. Most likely the installation is corrupt/incomplete.
You should see Altoholic_Characters, etc..

@dorn: achievements are fixed in upcoming release.

@chimihc: You did not clean your saved variables prior to installing 4.0

@gizmogeek: Fixed in 4.0.005

@Tirdal: I'm reviewing this, shouldn't be a problem to implement that.


edit 2 : 4.0.005 has been uploaded !

Character Selection Drop Down

One thing I've noticed different from earlier versions (as show also on the screenshots on this page),

At one time there was a drop down box to select a different character when viewing a character. That drop down box is now missing. The only drop down box is for selecting a different realm. The drop down box I'm referring to is shown in the Craftskills and Material screenshot picture.

Was this a change or just an oversight when the 4.0 versions became available. If possible I'd love to see that box back as it saves time when wishing to view a different character than the one currently being viewed.

The icons on the left (below the realm selection DDM) must be viewed as :

1st icon = character specific data
2nd & following icons : realm-wide views (all in one pets/mounts, factions, etc..)

If you click on the first icon, a new raw of icons appears at the top and lets you choose all that is character specific. Say you're looking at the bags, the mouse over the very first icon allows you to select another alt and keep the same pane visible (you'd go from viewing alt A's bags to alt B's bags).

I know it's a bit different than what it looked like before, but I needed space, and so shuffling the UI a bit was necessary.
