Altoholic  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.

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 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 !)

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.
ok but i use about 100 ace addons so i've downloaded LibBabble-Inventory-3.0 on files.wowace , change the fr translation in the lib and it works fine.

@boutbout: Thanks for the feedback.

@Thorlin: There will be more fubar support in the future, I know this may not sound much, but I need time to learn the library and what I can do with, and time is what I'm missing lately

I'm trying to keep the pace of updates slow but steady.

@gothicknight: You're welcome

By the way, for those who want an update, an early .014 is available on files.wowace.com, it contains an updated loot table which is on par with AtlasLoot 4.05. It went from 9000-ish entries to 11000-ish entries.

hi,

for some reason, Altoholic's minimap icon started to move by itself to the right of the map... I think it happens at each login. I'm not using FuBar.
I mean that the position where I drag the icon isn't saved, or that something is overriding it.

version .014

Version .014 is on its way, I've been working on localization and it took me quite a while to get everything together. The next update should only bring a few new features, but the next ones will be more interesting

edit: .014 has just been released. Please let me know if you're having problems with specific localizations.

In fact for me (i use fubar and i am on french server) alto don't save any config
so it's not just the icon of alto where is going to the right but in the option window if i valid an option (all or just one is same result) when i disconnect and reconnect the options are all desactivated

prob on french version ?

all the version have this prob from the first release to the last

Equipment items not showing - solved

Don't know if this has been said but here it is.

I couldn't figure out why equipment items just weren't showing ( blank except for the class icon at the top) until I found that a recently deleted toon was still showing.

Delete toon from Alto by right clicking on name in account summary fixed my prob.

Hope this helps anyone else with same prob

A few people have reported this problem to me lately, and to be honest, I have no clue where to start

But to tell you a bit more about this, that part of the code is handled by ACE, and it has never been a problem for me, even in the earliest releases. And as far as frFR might be concerned, I'm french speaking myself (even though I play with an enUS client), and most of my guildmates play on frFR.. you can guess they're actually my beta testers for localizations

.. and anyway, this problem has been reported by people who play in enUS too, so I don't think it's related to localization, there must be a bug somewhere, and I'll make my best to find it .. I just have to find out where to start looking x)

Quests

Hello, and thx for a great Addon, I have experienced no problems what so ever, BUT.

I'd like to request an addition/change. (No idea if its possible though.)

When looking at quests in Altoholic, would it be possible to have a complete list of quests when selecting the server, instead of having to browse through all the characters seperately??

I hate helping a friend with a quest and then later find out that one of my alts had it.

Thanks in advance.

I don't think I will make a global list of quests, but I intend to add a functionality to see which alt is on a quest linked on the guild chat for instance. This should meet your expectation

Yes i had the same prob so
just to say there is not an isolated prob

another idea possibly to do :

if you know fubar_restfu : it concatenate the rest time from your alt like altoholic but there is another information it give ---> % of the level played ( plus a note if your alt has disconnect in a sleeping home but this is no more important)

(je ne savais pas que tu parlais francais alors je peux te dire que c'est un super add-on qui remplace pleins d'autre add-ons et c'est le meilleur add pour reroll que j'ai vu)

As soon as I find out how to hook quest tooltips.. i've been looking for how to do this lately, but I couldn't find anything. It seems to be using another tooltip than GameTooltip or ItemRefTooltip.. still looking :/

edit: I guess you're lucky, I just found out how I could do it, I'm almost done, it will be in .015 !

@Laumac: merci
