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.

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

- DataStore_Quests : fixed tracking of completed quests

5.4.008 (27/07/2014)

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.

- Fixed issues related to scanning void storage (Thanks Lombra !)

(sorry for my english)
For about 2 weeks, I can't see anymore information in the item tooltip, telling me how much I have of this item on my others caracters.
I had this before, and love it.

Is there an option to activate (never found it) or is this a bug plz ?

Anyway .. I hope you'll be happy to hear that I've taken the wow annual pass, which means that the addon will be supported for at least another year

Thaoky
I LOVE this add-on and depend on it immensely! Thank you for such a great add-on and all your time and hard work to make it work for all of us!

Thank you ahead of time for whatever assistance you can give me!
Not sure if you can right now without the updates for 4.3 patch. But....if you can, you should be able to right click and remove them on the guilds tab.

For me at least Altoholic is no longer correctly updating what my bags contain. This is a big problem for me when I try to use the sync function between my main account and my secondary account since I have to manually check what items I got in stock and not.

Hi there,

I should post an update either tomorrow or Saturday.
I had to uninstall/deleted mine until there is an update, because I hated getting errors every five seconds. (You can probably just choose to not enable it [disable], but I hate having outdated add-ons installed).

I am looking forward to the update (when it does come), but I understand real life vs. spare-time/hobby project.

I haven't received a reply concerning my last post, so I'm re-posting it in the hopes that someone can tell me how to fix this problem. I don't know how anyone could play World of Warcraft with multiple toons (especially across multiple servers) and NOT use Altaholic. It simply IS, the single best addon out there.

I tried to view my talent builds for all toons, and even compare with other friends builds, and apparently there is an option missing to look at my builds, or, just is not functioning.

I cursor-over the Tree on a hill with stars behind it, to select the build I want to review through Altoholic, on whatever toon I selected to review.

I can view the Glyphs (*except Glyph of Dark Succor, which Blizzard had broken and tried to fix), just not any of the talent builds themselves.


After reviewing the addons I have and comparing those with my friends addons, and all the settings of Altoholic, we both have the same things going on, with the exception of, he doesn't have AtlasLoot, at all.

What do I need to do to make this function work, because he can do it, but I can't?




Edited: I can also view all my characters' professions, to include all the recipes/patterns/etc they know, mail that I haven't even seen myself on another toon as it was mailed while I was on a different toon when it was mailed and haven't switched, etc. I can also view all the spells and abilities for all my characters from the Altoholic Spellbook.

The version I am using is Altoholic v4.2.001 by Thaoky

Feature Request: Valor\Conquest caps

Thaoky,

First I just wanted to say thanks for the work you put into this. This has become an absolutely essential addon for me, right up there with my DBM and Grid, and it makes playing Wow so much more enjoyable. I am thrilled to hear that you are still supporting this and plan to for a while.

Second, I have a feature request. I love that I can see all my character's currencies such as current valor and conquest points. However, the one thing I still have to log into each toon to see is the progress towards the weekly cap. Is there anyway that you could implement this into Altoholic? I would love to be able to have it show me how far into cap I am for the week, i.e. 800\1000 valor, in addition to the total points.

Thanks

I didn't said it would not show any data.
It just often show bogus data ("often" = "i can reproduce the issue at will").
It doesn't work any worse right now for me.
Also, please don't top-post.
