About Altoholic

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.

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.
  • 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 grind 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.

Credits

  • I'd like to thank my guild, Odysse├╝s on EU-Mar├ęcages de Zangar, for assisting me since the earliest phases, thanks guys for everything you've done :)
  • Thanks to the wowace community, you've been very helpful and this addon would not be there without the technical answers you gave me (especially Xinhuan, author of BankItems)
  • Thanks to all the guys who are behind AtlasLoot, keeping the loot table up-to-date is a tremendous work, and the search functionality of Altoholic would not be what it is without your hard work.
  • Thanks to Ayindi (wowace) & sLiz3r (curse) for the German translation.
  • Thanks to NightOwl (wowace) for the zhTW translation.
  • Thanks to Wang (wowace) for the zhCN translation.
  • Thanks to Hellbot for the ruRU translation.
  • Thanks to Laumac for the frFR translation.
  • Thanks to IrregularByte for the esES translation.
  • Brykrys for the LinkWrangler support.

5.4.004 (07/10/2013)

- Fixed showing the item source for crafts in the tooltip.
- Fixed LibCraftInfo.

5.4.003 (06/10/2013)

- Created and added support for 3 new libraries : LibCraftInfo, LibCraftLevels, LibCraftReagents.
These libraries intend to replace the lost functionality caused by tables reset to zero in LibPeriodicTable.
I now have my own dataminer, so these tables should be easier to maintain when a patch hits.
I also cleaned up some hard coded tables to now use the libraries instead.
Overall, the addon now consumes a little bit more memory, but the data sources are way more complete than before.
- Replaced the internal list of recipes by LibCraftInfo.
- Fixed the Characters -> Profession pane no longer showing reagents due to LPT changes.
- Fixed the Grids -> Tradeskills pane no longer correct due to LPT changes.

    This is a great addon and very handy. Can't wait until you unbreak everything Blizz broke with the last patch. Although, when Cata is released, I fear it will only break more. I help maintain an addon on here as well as beta test others for many authors. If you would like any help or just want a beta test run, pm me. I check on here nearly everyday.
  • #3794
    Hey thacky, once all the bugs died down I was wondering, could you add a statistic tab?(like under achievement in standard ui). I know armory did it, and it shouldn't be too hard to implement.
  • #3791
    hi Thacky,
    I love Altholic a lot. It seem causing some problems 'Interface action failed because of an AddOn'

    Here is what I found out. Please advice. thanks.

    I turn off Data_Store. It disables altaholic, but at least you can turn in quests.
  • #3803
    Had same Problem. Logout, disable DataStore_Quest, login and q could be finished.
    I don't have the full message at hand, but the error was something like "number expected, receive boolean"
  • #3797
    You don't need to turn off all of Data_Store. Just disable DataStore_Quests and DataStore_Skills and everything else in Altoholic works fine with no errors.
  • #3790
    I just updated the addon today and its still not showing the justice points all of my characters have, is there a fix for this or has it just not been implemented for the addon yet?
  • #3788
    Sorry for bad english, got an error at the end of one quest.
    Cant give it to the npc so its all the time in my questbook, because of this error.

    I have 2 accounts and I still cannot get Altoholic to work so when I use the "This Realm (All Accounts)" and "All Realms (All Accounts)" function it does not show all my account info. Can you explain the method of sharing data between 2 (or more) accounts as the Account Sharing does not share information between my 2 accounts. And it's one feature of this very great addon I would want to get working as it would be helpful. I have a fresh 4.0.003 installation. Please advise...

    I'd like to note that I was also receiving this error. I am using a freshly reinstalled Version: 4.0.003. I had not played this game for about two months so the saved variable data is old. Erasing the saved variable data for Altoholics stopped the error from occurring.

    Steps to replicate:
    1) Start fresh instance of WoW
    2) Window pops up stating that I have expiring mail
    3) Click yes
    4) Mouse over any of the character names in the pane that pops up (Activity Pane)
    5) ERROR

    This add-on would be a lot more useful if there were some instructions on how to open the Altoholic window.

    You know, like maybe in the Description above, include a line like "To see the Altoholic window, type /altoholic" or something?
  • #3785
    There should be a flaggon icon on your minimap, if not open game interface through the escape button and select the minimap option there. There is broker support inbuilt to it, so if you're using titan panel or fubar it should be an available option for display. Granted fubar requires broker2fubar installed as well.
