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
- 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)

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.

There's a number of Druid glyphs, that aren't detected as known or unknown by a character.

Glyph of the Cheetah
Glyph of the Treant
Glyph of Savagery

Same applies to other classes. I.e. Glyph of Black Ice (Hunter).

Either right-click appropriate character in main interface window, or simply remove all DataStore*.lua files from WTF folder.

5.3.003 uploaded

Hi there !

5.3.003 has just been uploaded. I will soon be moving to my new place, much closer to my work, at this point I only hope 5.4 will not hit in that time frame (late August/early Sept). After that, I will have a bit more time, get back to wow and update the addon on a more regular basis.

Enjoy your holidays

Hi. Thanks for creating this amazing add-on. It's so incredibly convenient compared to playing musical characters trying to remember who has what, etc.

One thing that's been driving me crazy though is that, in any window where you craft something, such as cooking, leather working, etc. each time you create an item which gives you a skill-up, the list of recipes/patterns/etc in the crafting window resets to the top. This only happens when you receive a skill-up, if that helps you at all. I tried to search for this problem thinking surely someone else has experience this but I couldn't find anything.

Through the process of tracking down which add-on was causing this behavior, I found it was the "DataStore" component of Altoholic that was causing it. When I disabled Altoholic but left DataStore enabled, the problem persisted. The problem goes away when DataStore is disabled.

This add-on is very popular and I find it very hard to believe that either nobody else is experiencing this problem or that nobody else is bothered by it. Regardless any help anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Edit:

Also, is there some way to ignore characters of the opposite faction? I play Horde and Alliance on the same realm and Altoholic shows me information from characters of the opposite faction which is not only irrelevant but gets in the way of seeing what I have available to me on that faction only. Since nothing but heirlooms can be transferred to the opposing faction, for what reason is this information displayed?

Thanks again.

About the craft thing, it's on the long list of things I need to triple check.

About the opposite faction, if you're talking about the tooltip, there's an option to disable counters of the opposite faction; if you're talking about the account summary, I plan to rework that tab, and to allow more filtering, including by faction.

Update Altoholic

I would also like to thank you for this addon, it makes playing WoW so much more pleasant.

That said, I'd like to know which files to delete to remove Altoholic completely. I WANT to continue using it, but it keeps pulling up old data, toons that no longer exist, materials that I don't have, expiring mails that aren't there...

I'd really like to start fresh, but every time I've deleted the addon from the WoW/Interface/Addons folder, it seems there are files, somewhere, that are not being deleted. What do I need to remove to get a fresh start?

with regards to other faction

Yes, telling Altoholic to not show other faction means it doesn't show what the other faction characters have. It *does*, however, continue to show what the other faction *guilds* have.

I have my alliance toons in a (semi) private guild, House of the ConfusedCat. On the same server, I have my horde toons in a (semi) private guild, Horde of the ConfusedCat. On all my alliance toons, the tooltip for an item will show quantity in the Hordeside guild bank (assuming there is any of that item there, of course).

Is there any way to turn *that* off?

Have loved the addon for years now. Thank you!

You can delete characters, that no longer exists, directly from the Altoholic interface. Main page, right in your face.
Alternatively, remove any mention of DataStore_* files from the WTF folder, but then you will loose DataStore modules configuration as well.

Sugestion

Hi, I wanted to thank you for this addon, its great. I had a suggestion that I thought might be useful. Could this also track world boss kills across alts? For example people who kill galleon and Sha of anger every week on multiple alts. Could this track and show which toons have killed (and even coined) various bosses?

Thanks again, love your addon!

A few issues

After playing around with the new version (and deleting all my old data), I have noticed that it seems that the option to color recipes at the AH or in your inventory/vendor (2 separate options if i remember correctly) do not work as intended. When I visit a vendor or go to the AH the recipes are all red for me if checked on, even the ones I don't yet know.

The other thing is the glyphs still don't seem to be visible in a few cases, as it was in the last release for me, depending on which area of glyphs I look in, some are just missing (the graphic/icon).

Thanks!

edit: I also see the issue of Profession skill levels has returned: they often display as 0.

If you have Auctioneer installed, disable that option.
Regarding skills and other things, if you've deleted your SV's, you need to specifically and intentionally open every related window for Altoholic to properly scan everything.
