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.

- 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.

5.4.009 (08/08/2014)

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 : Current character/guild key can now be used by character/guild based methods
- DataStore : added a few methods to support overriding methods

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.

Guild bank error

Hi, I really like the mod. Gives me pretty much everything I can think of.

One thing I noticed is this. I'm using the latest version and when I try to put something in the guild bank I experience something very similar to the symptoms of lag. I place the item, but it doesn't appear in the guild bank slot. After that I can't do anything such as talk to a banker, cast a spell, etc. It stays like that for a while. Maybe a minute or so. Then everything comes back. The reason I'm mentioning this here is because the first time I got this, I got a pop-up error mentioning Altoholic. Unfortunately I wasn't able to copy the info down and I assumed it was just a result of lag. I then tried again and the same thing happened, but no error popup.

So for now I just wanted you to be aware. Its certainly possible that something else is causing it, and if it continues to happen and I can get the error to show again, I will post it. Just so you know, this is the first time I've accessed a guild bank since installing the app last week.

UPDATE: I had no problems at all this evening so I consider the error a blizzard lag problem.

Thanks,
Don

First of all, I love this mod. It's made keeping track of all my alts ridiculously easy. I was just wondering if you could implement some sort of sorting ability for the info frames, such as sorting by name/class/level for the character overview/bag views. I can't quite figure out why my characters are shown in the particular order that they are. Thanks for this awesome addon.

@drwoods:
If you couldn't do anything "such as talk to a banker, cast a spell, etc..", then I really think this was caused by a lag issue, and the error message was just incidental. I'm interested in it though, if you ever face it again, let me know

@Atarius:
I intend to improve things like that in the future, but my priority is to add new features (ie: sources of information).

I'll work on the addon tonight, and maybe post an update if I can.

Awesome mod!

One thing that would be nice is another tab that shows what recipes I know for my professions. My guildies always ask If I know a certain enchant and its annoying having to switch to my enchanter just to check. Keep up the good work!

Absolutely the best mod which I've ever seen to work with alts - I'm altholic too , 9 alts on 70 level hurts a lot, your addon solved almost all problems with that, finally I have some time just to play, not to try to clean or organize my storages/skills. Thanks a lot.

Re: Trade Skills

I'm glad you guys like the mod, it keeps me motivated ^^

I'm currently working on recipes, I should release this weekend if I don't encounter any major hurdle along the way.

no total for gold in guild bank

Ok well maybe i'm not seeing this but is there a total for gold in the guild bank? I mean even people who dont have access to tabs can see the total gold amount. I don't have access to take anything out of the guild bank on my main who is in a raiding guild. But my alts guild bank (the only reason i use this mod) I have full access to cuz i'm the guild leader and all the members too lol. So sometimes when i'm in the raid i get bored and want to look at my stuff and gold and plan what i'm gonna do when i get outta the raid.

to sum it up i want to see the total gold in alt guild bank. Moneyfu for fubar only shows the totals on all your toons.

Re: no total for gold in guild bank

It's not in the addon, but that shouldn't be too complicated to add
You'll get it in the next version.

Re: Brilliant!!

Yeah, I really like it too. The first version I had written only showed recipes, and the screen felt kind of empty .. so I thought about giving a try at adding mats, and it worked out pretty well

I can't say when the next version will be, but my focus will be using less resources. With 10 fully-loaded alts, I'm at 3.0mb. Next version will use less memory, but will require a data wipe.

I'll try to minimize how often this has to happen, so I'm focusing on all these improvements in one release. A few new features should make it in the next version as well.

I hope I'm not blind but isn't it possible to search for recipes that an alt can craft? I can see them if I open the recipe part of a char but that's all (atm).

A feature request: Can you give us the option to change the sort order in the loot table search? I'd like to have the items with the highest item lvl at the top and not an alphabetical list.

Tia,

It's not possible to "search" for a recipe, but it's a good idea, I'll see if I can do something about it, shouldn't be too hard

The loot table search is already sorted by item level (shown in yellow, on the right), but in an ascending order (better items at the bottom). I'll implement an option to reverse the order though. Good suggestion

what about an option to show quests that your alts have already done with different sections for regular quests and dailies with an option to delete those. Not delete the actual quests as that would prolly be impossible from other toons but to delete the showing in altaholic of them. I would like this particularly because i alt hop SOOOOO much that i get sidetracked especially while doing dailies or get in a group (as odd as that may seem) and when i alt hop back to the alt i was working on, look at quest log and see i've done 5 dailies, i can't remember which ones they were. LOL did i mention i have a really bad memory. I'm getting old... I hope I'm not confusing you. I say things in a long drawn out fashion that everyone hates.

Otherwise this mod is everything i've dreamed of and can't do myself cuz i know nothing about coding. You're pure genious you know that? I check everyday for anything new. love it love it love it
