Altoholic  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.0.003
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.

7.0.003 (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'll check this one, thanks for reporting.

The items that are skipped are reference data for talent trees, i.e.: how to draw the talent tree for a specific class. If you transfered, say, a priest from account B to account A, and your altoholic DB already knew a priest, then reference data for the class priest was skipped.

That makes even more sense . I have some classes that are on both accounts so that explains the skipped messages. Thanks again.

Hello,

i got some strange behavior. When i hover over a unit i got a blank line in the tooltip for a second. See the pictures:



After a second the line is gone:



I use the ToolTip-AddOn TipTac. When i uncheck the option 'show counters on gathering nodes' in Altoholic everything is fine.Any idea for that ?


regards, Sha

Quest Log Problems

Altoholic is causing the Quest Log headers to expand when any quest is updated, a new quest is accepted, a quest is abandoned, or if the Altoholic window is accessed. I verified it was Altoholic by a complete UI reset (cache, wtf, and interface folder removed) and Altoholic as the only add-on.

I keep the area headers collapsed except for the area I'm questing in and any time a quest is updated (ie. completed, an objective updated), a new quest is accepted, a quest is abandoned, or I access the Altoholic window all the headers expand. I have the quests/objective tracking for the Blizzard tracker all turned off. I don't know if this is a new problem or just started happening with the 3.1 patch since I've only been using Altoholic since the patch went live. If this is new it may be tied to the quest/objective tracking Blizzard implemented with the patch.

I've implemented an automatic clean-up for these, it will be in the next version.

Yes, tooltip management can be tricky, and I intend to review this in a few versions (I think for 3.1.003 or 004).

Expanding headers is required to scan the quest log, otherwise the content of collapsed header can't be read. I'll check if I can adjust this a bit to prevent the issue.

Edit: fixed

altoholic v3.1.001b slow sharing data + not saving pref's

1. not saving preference to allow account sharing while logged in.
it's necessary to log out and then back in to save this preference

2. it is an utter nightmare to synchronize accounts tonight
i've had to go through hours and hours and hours of waiting and restarting and resending data. USUALLY i just send to a name or target someone and wait and that's enough -- even for a first time use. it may take 15-20 minutes but it finishes. With this version/post patch, it doesn't seem to finish. it lags out after about 1/3 of the new data and stops. This is after working around the various nil string errors mentioned below. I've gone to a 'quiet area' in a out of the way place (backwater city to be able to be side by side), out in a quiet zone, etc. It looks like it goes through about 1/4 to 1/3 the data and then just stalls out. Usually when sending a character type template that isn't on that other account. Then I restart it and zooms along and eventually it finishes -- but this is taking like six hours to synch.

3. I also have the "issue" (which seems to be working as intended/designed like with opening mail) for the quest log headers. based on your explanation I understand why it's doing it but it'd be great for UX / user experience if it'd re-collapse it after reading it.

Raid IDs and a General Note

Oh a general note -- after discovering your wonderful addon (25+ alts actively played) I have of course fallen in love with it and convinced my guild and friends of how wonderful it is. Most of us being alt junkies, we're most all now avid users. So thanks for the insanely clever user design.

The only repeated request I'm hearing from guildies is this one:

raid IDs -- not necessarily the numbers themselves if there's an issue recording those, but at least knowing what toon has been in what instance. if you're in dalaran and a 'lfm heroic naxx' or whatever comes up, it's nice to be able to check really quickly to see which toon has a free raid id this week. the weeks to bleed together. (VoA and OS might be better examples) and heroic dailies etc.

Bug indeed, I just fixed it.

With the current public version, a normal character (lv 80, full professions, bags etc..) takes around 80kb to transfer, so it may indeed take 15-20 minutes if you have 10 fully loaded alts. The good news is that in the next version, I've reworked the way certain data is stored in the DB and won a lot of memory.

To give you an idea, my own database (10 alts) went from 4.15 Mb down to 3.34 Mb. Transferring an alt now takes around 40kb instead of 80kb. So there will be a real improvement in the next release. And all that is without compressing data (will come later, I need further tests to ensure a flawless transfer, which was not the case in my earlier tests), so there is still room for improvement

As answered to Meloric, this is now fixed.

.. and if you wonder about the date of the next release, I'll strive to do this next weekend, but it depends on whether or not I can reach the targets I've set for 3.1.002.

Glad you like it, suggestions are welcome in case you do have any, nothing is really set in stone

Raid ID's are there already, you can see them when mousing over an alt in the account summary. This is not the best place, but it's the best I could do due to time constraints back when I added them. That said, they will be moved soon to a more convenient place, but that's for 3.1.003 (or 004, priorities may always switch).

I really like Altoholic, it replaced several addons I used to use, and I will continue to use it despite two shortcomings. However, I'd like to find out if we might be able to get two shortcomings "fixed." I realize that for most people these will probably be low priority, if they even view it as a bug as opposed to intended behavior, but I'd just like to point these out.

Whenever you earn any reputation while Altoholic is installed and active, all the reputation "folders" get expanded to reveal everything. Not just the Altoholic rep view, either, it happens to the base rep window as well. It's kind of annoying to have to recollapse the pre-NR reps several times each session if I'm working on my dailies for multiple factions.

Second, a very similar problem with the quest log, in that picking up any new quests (and it seemed to happen even if a party member picked up a quest) would expand all the quest nodes in the quest log, making it hard to find the quests you're actively working on.

I just noticed the second last night, but I rather thoroughly tested the first. With all addons but Altoholic disabled, the reputation would get expanded, with all addons but altoholic enabled, the reputation would stay as I last left it, so this isn't a different addon causing this, or even interaction with another addon.
