Altoholic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 9.0.008
by: Thaoky [More]

Hi, my name is Thaoky, and I'm an Altoholic

Altoholic is an Ace 3 add-on written for people who dedicate most of their time to leveling alts, and who want to have as much information as possible in one place.


IMPORTANT NOTE:

I am back in the game since 28/12/2020.

If you are upgrading from a version below 9.0.003, YOU MUST CLEAR YOUR SAVED VARIABLES !!

This means cleaning the following files in \WTF\Account\<your_account>\SavedVariables : Altoholic.lua & All DataStore*.lua



About the add-on:

The add-on has been in development since December 2007 and was officially released in late March 2008. It provides you information about your alts (bags, mails, AH, etc...) without having to reconnect them all the time.

Supporting development:

You might not know this, but add-ons do not write themselves.
If you want to help development, or simply show your appreciation, use one of the following ways:


About the author:

I was born in '76 (you do the math) and I work as a Project Manager + Software Architect + Full Stack Web Dev (yup, multiple hats) in a large multinational, so my coding time is limited, and Work > Gaming.

I live in Belgium, and obviously play on EU only.

Assistance will be provided on a best effort basis, but in any case always be polite and respectful when asking for help, I am neither a teenager, nor a punching ball. I am a cool guy with people who are cool with me. Respect that rule and we'll be fine.


Availability:

2020/12/28: I am back in the game.

Current Issues:

2020/12/28: Due to Teelo's actions, I have reverted his changes and resumed development based on my latest version of the code. Some of his new features are temporarily not available anymore, some are gone forever. The main Shadowlands features will be back though, just be patient.

Credits:
  • I'd like to thank my guild, Odysseüs on EU-Marécages de Zangar, for assisting me since the earliest phases, thanks guys for everything you've done
  • Thanks to the all the people who have supported the add-on since 2008, and also all those of you who came on board later.
  • Thanks to all the guys who have helped with code/translations/bug tracking.. and well, project support in general, especially during my long absences. Such projects can be long and tedious, it is good to not feel alone

Join the #altoholic IRC channel on Freenode : irc://irc.freenode.net:6667/

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR 8.0 : 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 meagre price to pay once per expansion.

How to support Altoholic's development :

- Use the donate button either on Curse or on WoW Interface
- Support me on Patreon : https://www.patreon.com/Thaoky , the page is still being setup, it might take a few days before it can be used, I still need a banner.
- Make a gift from my amazon's wish list : http://amzn.eu/7xWdnbZ

If you like the addon, consider supporting it, this has been the long term effort and commitment of a single person. #OneManArmy


9.0.008 (05/04/2021)

- Added an option to display an item's expansion level in the tooltip.
- Created a new library, LibItemInfo, with the long term goal to deprecate LibPeriodicTable and offer a different kind of information.
- This new library currently contains information about reagents and some additional items, to indicate to which expansion they belong, and in which bag
they could be stored.
This feature, along with additional features coming in future releases will help you better manage your alts and your bank alts.
Data has not been datamined, it has been manually curated with in-game data + Wowhead.
It is by no means complete yet (there is definitely more to come).
Because it is manually curated, compiling it does take time even though it looks like a small feature (I did this at my pace while working on Classic features).

The next few releases of retail should be interesting, stay tuned :)

Note: You used to see "Source" in the tooltip, this will also be deprecated and replaced by "Info" + "Expansion".
Only the latter will be displayed if information is found in LibItemInfo, if not, "Source" will be displayed instead.

Just head to the auction house, and browse the trade goods, it should give you an idea of how useful this feature is :)


9.0.007 (28/02/2021)

- Summary Tab => Fixed the faction filter not working properly for languages other than English. This was due to the character faction being saved in English instead of localized.
Reconnecting your alts is necessary. Players using English clients are unaffected.
- DataStore_Characters : Fixed the reported faction name for languages other than English (this is related to the previous line). This could cause Alliance characters to be reported as Horde. But fear not, the Alliance had not been infiltrated by the Horde !
- Summary Tab => Added a panel for the mythic keystones.


9.0.006d (22/02/2021)

- Fixed a localization error on "Hearthstone".

9.0.006c (21/02/2021)

- Fixed another packaging error of the Characters tab sources.

9.0.006b (21/02/2021)

- Fixed packaging error of DataStore_Characters (missing locales).

9.0.006 (21/02/2021)

- Fixed a bug that probably existed since a very long time in the account summary, when randomly sorting on a column that would try to get data
from a DataStore module where a character key was completely missing.
This impacts alts that do not have talents yet for example.
If you have low level alts (<15) you haven't logged in in a long time .. now would be a good time to do it.
- Summary Tab => Skills : Added the "Riding skill" column.
- Summary Tab => Added a new menu item with miscellaneous information : guild name, hearthstone, class & active talent spec.

9.0.005 (14/02/2021)

- Summary Tab => Added two more options to filter alts by level : 1-44, 45+ & 50+
- Summary Tab => Covenant Sanctum : Fixed a color issue for the current chapter being displayed as grey instead of white in the campaign progress tooltip.
- DataStore_Quests => Fixed the campaign progress quest status (related to previous line)
- Added a tooltip option to hide counters for hearthstones.
Namely : Hearthstone, Dalaran Hearthstone, Garrison Hearthstone, Admiral's Compass and Flight Master's Whistle
- Grids Tab => Added a drop down in the emissaries, to allow filtering quests by expansion pack.
- Grids Tab => Reputations : Fixed a lua error when selecting the "All-in-one" view, due to the "Chromie" reputation being missing.


9.0.004 (24/01/2021)

- Summary Tab => Covenant Sanctum : added a new column to track campaign progress.
- Summary Tab => Covenant Sanctum : added a tooltip of the covenant name to show the best covenant for this character (sources: Icy Veins & Wowhead)
=> You have to login with the alt once for the tooltip to show !
- Fixed a Lua error again when trying to get the soulbind's name of a low level alt.
- Characters Tab => Renown Panel : Fixed a Lua error when viewing an alt's renown levels.
- Fixed a minor bug that preventing alt's currencies to be shown in the tooltip.


9.0.003c (15/01/2021)

- Fixed a bug where a soulbind's name could be returned as nil and cause a Lua error.
- Fixed 2 Lua errors in the Skills panel of the Account Summary Tab.


9.0.003b (14/01/2021)

- Minor fix, forgot to include files in the Altoholic_Characters .TOC file.

9.0.003 (13/01/2021)

CLEARING YOUR PREVIOUS INSTALLATION IS MANDATORY FOR THIS RELEASE, AS WELL AS YOUR SAVED VARIABLES !!!!

- Following the addition of the offensive code by Teelo in the latest release, I have taken back control of the development based on 8.3.001.
- All changes by Teelo have disappeared and will not come back, at least not in their original form.
- Code has been updated to support 9.0 API changes.
- Summary Tab : added a new menu item for Covenant Sanctum data.
- Characters Tab : minor fixes in several places
- Characters Tab => Garrison Icon : added support for the command table missions of the covenant.
- Characters Tab => Covenant Icon (new) : added 2 panels for renown & soulbinds. More to come here.
- Grids Tab => Emissaries Icon : modified string formatting a bit to show to which extension an emissary quest belongs
- Grids Tab => Emissaries Icon : added support for Callings
- The following DataStore modules are no longer part of the project, and are not supported : DataStore_Rares, DataStore_Keystones, DataStore_Covenants.

Note: I reactivated my subscription on 28/12/2020, so not everything is in yet, and I still have to make further in-game progress on some things before they get into the add-on.

Many of you will probably wonder which features will come back or not, all I can say is some will, some won't.

Thanks so much Thaoky, .008 fixed this, you are a scholar and a gentleman!

I will also open an issue on the CurseForge Altoholic site.
I added it in the .toc, it will be in the next version (.009, I just released .008).
I tried to upload classic here, but somehow it messed up the page, I need to look into it.

Did you upgrade from a version below 9.0.003 ? If so be sure you have cleaned your SavedVariables.

After doing so, be sure that the tooltip options are properly set (see Interface -> Options)
I made a fresh installation plus deleting SavedVariables. That worked best for me. Thank you very much!

9.0.006 has been uploaded !

Hi !

In this version, a very old bug has been fixed, it may not have impacted many of you, but occasionally a weird Lua error could have popped-up due to a low level alt not having his talents yet, and thus no character key in DataStore_Talents.

I recommend logging on those old dusty alts you have not looked at in a long time

Have fun !

Thank you! OMG I feel like such a dunce. It was the profession filter, I didn't even realize that I had changed it. happy camper. And thank you so much for such a fast response! You rock!

If you only want the tooltip info, You can disable all Altoholic_* modules, except the main one (just "Altoholic", it's the core, you need it), and keep just these DataStore modules:

DataStore
DataStore_Characters
DataStore_Containers
DataStore_Inventory

If you also want currencies tooltip : DataStore_Currencies
