About AdiBags

AdiBags displays the content of your bags in one view, distributed into several sections using smart filters.

It is heavily inspired by Nargiddley’s Baggins.

Configuration is available through Blizzard addon panel, /adibags chat command or right-clicking on the LDB plugin.

Important note about localized filters: some filters rely on translations from LibBabble-Inventory-3.0 so if some of them behave strangely in your locale, please take a look at the library translation status.

Feedback

Important notice: since v1.6.12-beta-1, AdiBags embeds BugGrabber, an error catching addon. Please check the error is really about AdiBags before reporting them here. I suggest installing BugSack to catch the errors.

Please report any bug or error using the wowace bug tracker (your Curse account works there). The comments section below is not meant to report and track bugs. I won’t reply to bug reports in the comment section anymore.

Some words about submitting bug reports:

  • I do not care about “it doesn’t work, fix it!” messages. I need to know how it failed and a way to reproduce the bug so I can test it and make sure I fix it.
  • Bug reports are not in the “fire and forget” kind of things. I may have to ask you some details.
  • Please check all existing tickets and the “known issues” section below before submitting new ones. Duplicate reports will be rejected on sight.

Features

Most of these features may be configured. Check out the configuration panel ! (using the /adibags chat command or clicking on the bag icon, you have any LDB display)

  • Smart filters are used to distribute items into several sections, including:
    • Item sets of the Blizzard’s gear manager (one section per set),
    • Junk items (whitelist and blacklist available),
    • Quest items,
    • Equipment (items your character can wear),
    • Sections based on item category: trade goods, consumables, recipes, ...
    • Manual filtering (drag and drop items on section header, or add new section from the configuration panel),
    • Ammunition and warlocks’ soul shards,
    • Free space.
  • Smart item sorting inside each section.
  • Smart section layout ; change the setting “Automatic layout update” to control the frequency of updates.
  • Track new items ; use the [N] button resets the “new” flag.
  • Display slot type.
  • Bag tidy ; click on the [T] button.
  • Hide some sections, using the [V] button.
  • Name-based search.
  • Equipped bags (click on the bag icon in the top left corner),
  • Display character money in the backpack.
  • Display character tokens in the backpack.
  • LDB data source, displaying free space.
  • Two bag placement modes (choose one in the configuration panel):
    • Anchored: the bags expand from an anchor towards the center of the screen. The anchor can be unlocked and moved.
    • Manual: move the bags by dragging their title.

Separate modules

I have written two separate modules for AdiBags:

Tips & tricks

  • you can create your own sections using the “manual filter” in filter configuration. You can then drag and drop items on section titles to reassign them ; this works for any section.
  • if you want to highlight new items without putting them into a specific section, edit the “new items” filter priority to put it at the end of the filter list.

Known issues

  • All items are always news / new items are not detected / item sets are not working: AdiBags is (ab)using the game API to emulate some features that is was not meant to do. It relies on some timings that depend on your computer speed, your realm server and/or your network connection (because the game is inherently asynchronous). In some cases, it just does not work and there is almost nothing I can do because I cannot reproduce the bug to diagnose it and to try to fix it. So basically, if the new item or item set filters are not working for you, there is little chance I can fix it.
  • Protected action/addon blocked error: they sometimes happen with AdiBags. Even though my effort, I can not reproduce these. Blizzard taint reports are very buggy, often blaming the wrong addon. As such they are pretty much useless.
  • Please note that prospecting, disenchanting or milling can create new items (e.g. that were not in your inventory yet). This can cause the whole bag to be updated. In this case, the items that were under your mouse cursor may move around. There is no easy solution for this so be cautious.

Things that likely will not be implemented

Anything else than the existing “all-in-one” views

AdiBags has been built around, and optimized for, the idea of the “all-in-one” view. Doing anything would require to redesign big parts of the addons, especially the layout code that is quite complex at the first place.

Anything that requires to scan item tooltips

Tooltip scanning is quite CPU-consuming and above all requires asynchronous programming, since item tooltips would not always be available at the time AdiBags should use them. This would raise the complexity of bag filtering be an order of magnitude and turn AdiBags into a CPU hog.

Some examples what requires to scan the item tooltips:

  • detecting the kind and state of binding: unbound, soulbound, bind-on-pickup, bind-on-equip…
  • detecting already known spells/pets/recipes or faction/race/level/skill/class restrictions ; basically any “red text” in the tooltip.

Guild bank

AdiBags presents you a nice view of your bags but actually they are in a complete mess. With AdiBags, there is no need and no way to tidy up the items in the actual bags. Guilds usually try to keep their bank tidy. What would happen if some people in a guild used AdiBags for the guild bank ? Well, they would mess up the guild bank content and people NOT using AdiBags would have to deal with that mess. I can hear the screams from there. So that is why I will not implement guild bank.

Alt bags and bank

AdiBags is not an alt bags/bank viewer. If you want to keep track of what your alt owns, I suggest using an addon like BagSync.

Full bag skinning

Basic skinning is available using LibSharedMedia-1.0: you can choose the bag font, background and border, as well as the color.

Comprehensive in-game filter/section editor

According to my experience with Baggins, comprehensive editor is awful to write as an author and awful to use as an user. Hence I focus on creating filters that have a smart built-in behavior and only a few options. I try to avoid the 20% of features that would require 80% of development effort.

    Heya

    Congrats on making such an awesome addon :)

    I have only one gripe/problem and that is that the rows keep changing according to sorting rules - ala if i start moving lots of trade goods into and out of my inventory then one moment all the ore/cloth/enchanting mats are at the bottom of the inventory, then it moves to the top etc (icons shift around)

    Is there a way to keep the rows static without them moving around all the time? (I have use strict filtering on as the other 2 are even worse)

    Hi there,

    that’s an addon I´ve been looking for. But it`s missing something very important. Is it possible to add the function to see the bags of your twinks from your main and also the bank off your twinks an your own bank where ever you are like it is possible with bagnon? If you could make this it`ll make your addon completely perfect :D

    Hi, I would like to know if it is possible to sort BoE and Soulbound gear separatly and if it is how?

  • #199

    I love this add-on, but if there was one thing I can say it needs is a filter for BOE / BOP.

  • #203

    Again, don't hold you breath : I won't mess with tooltip scanning hell.

  • #202

    there are addons that overlays 'BoP' / 'BoE', but it needs an update from Adirelle

    check my post on the forums:

    Yeah, it's one of the biggest things that I miss from baggins.

  • #196

    Quick question - I'm new to this addon and was curious if there's a way to apply a Masque (ButtonFacade) theme to this addon?  I've tried applying different themes to the Global option in masque but for some reason, Adibags doesn't pick it up.

    Many thanks.

    hey, adi bags is preventing me from switching armor /weapon sets on my rogue only when i disable adibags im able to switch armor/weapon sets.

    everything worked fine till like a day or so ago

  • #195

    did you add a new add-on?

    disable all add's but adibag's to see if the error is coming from it first.

  • #192

    I have noticed that Adibags will sort items very well but unfortunatly it has less then full stacks sorting as the lowest slot number in bag (or the pile to use first by default) which messes up panda when doing prospecting.  I did a tidying and it stacked my ores but put the less then full stack first (lowest slot in bag) in my bag meaning that that stack gets used first by default for prospecting and runs me into "requires 5 pyrite ore" error because the partial stack has only 3, I still had 12 other full stakcs or pyrite ore in bags at the time.

  • #194

    use jpack with adibags.. as it has 4 or 5 different ways of sorting bag's

  • #190

    Bottom line formatting is not perfect - http://i.imgur.com/dwcHn.png

  • #187

    When I dis-enchant, mill, prospect or use up an item, adibags rearranges all the rows/colums.  Is there a way to turn this off?

    solshine2510 reported the same issue.

    I have almost dis-enchanted something I did not want to.

    You might want to use Panda for disenchanting, just as I do. Ofc, this is a work-around only, and the "unstable slots" issue is still there. A bug that more people report here and I do hope the project manager will address it eventually:)
