Altoholic  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 9.0.007
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

9.0.007 (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.

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

Halp? Please and thank you.

I don't think I can attach it to a forum post or PM so I have a draft email to the address WoWInterface provided. As I wrote it, and did "one more test", the agenda file size changed from 6k to 2k. I will capture the file prior to logging in tomorrow and after logging out of that session. Let me know if there's a better way to send it. Thanks for taking a look!
Hi,

first be sure to be out of the game when taking the file, if you are in the game when copying it, you will get the state of the database as it was when you logged in.

Second, yes, the email provided by wowi is ok.

It says it is from WoWInterface and there's a new update to be installed. I haven't logged in yet today, will see what happens after the update.

Agenda error

I took the required steps when updating to this version. I deleted the Altoholic and DataStore directories under Interface and WTF then downloaded this. I've used WoWup to keep it up to date.

I have gotten this error a few times when logging on, including right now.

Code:
1x DataStore_Agenda\DataStore_Agenda-r32.lua:368: bad argument #2 to 'strsplit' (string expected, got table)
[string "=[C]"]: in function `strsplit'
[string "@DataStore_Agenda\DataStore_Agenda-r32.lua"]:368: in function <DataStore_Agenda\DataStore_Agenda.lua:363>
[string "=(tail call)"]: ?
[string "@Altoholic\Events.lua"]:443: in function `BuildList'
[string "@Altoholic\Events.lua"]:487: in function `Init'
[string "@Altoholic\Altoholic-r193.lua"]:324: in function <Altoholic\Altoholic.lua:318>
[string "=[C]"]: ?
[string "@!KalielsTracker\Libs\AceAddon-3.0\AceAddon-3.0-13.lua"]:70: in function <...s\!KalielsTracker\Libs\AceAddon-3.0\AceAddon-3.0.lua:65>
[string "@!KalielsTracker\Libs\AceAddon-3.0\AceAddon-3.0-13.lua"]:527: in function `EnableAddon'
[string "@!KalielsTracker\Libs\AceAddon-3.0\AceAddon-3.0-13.lua"]:630: in function <...s\!KalielsTracker\Libs\AceAddon-3.0\AceAddon-3.0.lua:615>
Also, maybe related or maybe not, the minimap icon displays. When I go to options, that option is unchecked so it should not show. I have to click it on then back off again to get it to disappear.
