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.

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

Not a bug!

It wasn't planned, but I can make this happen

Feature request: This may be too much to ask, but would it be possible to record some basic info about hunter pets if the character is a hunter? A useful set of basic info might include: name, family, level, stabled (yes/no). A more complete set of info might also incude: current xp, xp for next level, and known skills.

Thanks again!
Added to my to-do-list.

Also, the "Recipe Radar" mod confuses its profession scanning ability.
The guild banks & the character names are two different issues.

Only guild banks on the current server are supported at the moment, but this should be addressed rapidly.
Characters with the same name on different server are indeed an issue, but I already replied a few posts below about this, it's being addressed.

About recipe radar, could you be more specific ? what happens ? anything I could do about it ?

[b]Not at the moment, I can't directly access information from another account, Blizzard prevents it, but I understand how it's an interesting feature. One of my original goals is to support communication of information/queries between guildmates, a little bit like gatherer does. Nothing is clearly defined nor set in stone at this point, but there WILL be communication between accounts in the future.

You'll have to be able to connect both accounts at the same time though, if
that can't happen, I'll never be able to help

Regarding the copy/paste of data, honestly, it would work flawlessly for some screens (like account summary, skills ..) but would make equipment and reputations bug if the character count is over 10.
Ah, yeah I was looking at Altoholic last night and I realized that for the Equipment part there's just no room for more than 10 characters. Oh well I look forward to seeing what you do with this in the future. Ya know, I'm quite surprised that Blizzard doesn't have an in-game Armory.

I've just installed it and from looking at only the first 2 characters I'm impressed.

But, I'm seeing 2 mini map buttons,

one has the text: Altoholic Left click to open/close
the other has the text: Altoholic Left click to open <CrLf> Right click to drag

I'd like to get rid of one of those buttons, being an Addon-aholic too my minimap circumference is pretty crowded.

Somewhat related to this, it seems that if an item is unique to one character that the counts do not appear. If Naranjar is the only one with a lvl 70 Shaman item the tooltip doesn't reflect that Naranjar has 1 of them.

I would find it helpful to display the count even if only one exists for one character.

Instead of the following:
Runed Adamantite Rod
Binds when picked up
Requires Enchanting (350)
"Can also serve as any lesser runed enchanting rod."
Vendor: (x1) 3g 20s
It would be:
Runed Adamantite Rod
Binds when picked up
Requires Enchanting (350)
"Can also serve as any lesser runed enchanting rod."

Naranjar: 1 (Bags: 1)
Total owned: 1
Vendor: (x1) 3g 20s

Gathering Professions

I haven't seen this addressed yet.

Mining appears in the list because you can open the Mining pane to use a forge and smelt the bars.
Herbalism and Skinning do not have their own windows and thus cannot be read into Altoholic's database via the same method.

Is there a way to record the skill level of Herbalism and Skinning due to this behavior?

Actually, no

The other professions have a list of crafts that can be made by the character, but Herbalism & Skinning simply don't, so there's nothing I can do about it. Their current level is however displayed in the "Skills" pane.

Regarding your other question, the count is indeed not displayed if the count is one, and I admit that it can sometimes be misleading not to know it, so I'll update it

Doing a little more detailed lookaround I got this error when I opened the Reputations screen on my L70 Hunter.


Error: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)
File: Interface\AddOns\Altoholic\Altoholic.lua
Line: 1933
Count: 9
--------------------------------------------------
Error: attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)
AddOn: Altoholic
File: Equipment.lua
Line: 97
Count: 2

I closed the error frame and now I can view the reputation tab w/o problem.

Ahh, yes. Saw that after I posted the comment.

As Replacement for Recipe Book

Can this mod replace Recipe Book? Does it place indicators into recipe links to tell you if one of your alts already have a recipe?

When I received a fishing pattern from a quest it said "Can be used by Naranjar" in the tooltip before I learned it.
