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.

6.1.006 (08/05/2015)

- Updated list of archaeology projects with WoD projects. I apparently messed up and lost the file that contained the update in 6.1.001, it's now ok.
- Moved several UI templates to their own folder.
- Completely rewrote the Blizzard's DropDownMenu widget to use my own version.
I was tired of some of the constraints of their implementation, and of the loss of time it caused me every time I wanted to use one.
So I invested some time in making it my way.
- Account Summary -> The amount of uncollected garrison resources now appears in yellow when resources exceed 300, and in red when they exceed 450.
- Account Summary -> Added icons with drop-down menus to filter your list of alts by faction, level, profession and class.
- Account Summary -> Fixed the expand/collapse button that did not work anymore after the complete rewrite of the pane.
- Achievements lists updated ! (Thanks Bluemage29 for your help !!)
- Fixed a Lua error when viewing the Guild tab with an character not in a guild.

6.1.005 (20/04/2015)

- The garrison mission tooltip now shows a red exclamation mark '!' when no missions are active.
- In the account summary, the last column used to sort the view is now remembered, and is restored when you log in again.
- Character's tab: fixed a lua error when mousing over the professions' icon of a character that does not have 2 professions.
- Account Summary: modified the garrison followers pane to show followers at iLvl 675 and a column for their weapon/armor iLvl.

    How do you clean your saved variables?

  • #5020

    To clean your variables, goto the warcraft directory (in Program Files x86 on Windows 7 64-bit, or Program Files on Windows 7 32-bit). Assuming you are on Windows 7 32-bit, goto

    C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\<your account name>\SavedVariables\

    Delete all files beginning with Altoholic and Datastore.

    Normally, I use Curse or WowMatrix to uninstall the program, too.

  • #5039

    I would guess you used the curse client to install the addon. Download the package manually, and it will contain everything you need.

  • #5026

    Altoholic_Summary is not in my add-ons list.

    It is not on the main add-on screen (before going into a character on the lower right corner) - Nor is it on my list when I open add-ons using Addon Control Panel while logged onto a character.

    I have uninstaled and re-installed Altoholic.  Is there a way that I can get Altoholic_Summary separately?  Or any idea why uninstalling and re-installing doesn't put it in there?

  • #5024

    Altoholic_Summary, while being Load on Demand, is mandatory to run the addon.
    All functions that do not need the UI have also no need for Altoholic_Summary, but this is the first pane of the addon, and it's considered the basis for the other tabs (allows me to save memory until you actually toggle the UI).

    In other words, do not disable it in the addon list.

  • #5022

    I deleted the data files  still got error on summary page - still got message that Altoholic_Summary is disabled.

    I uninstalled (including deleting the data files) through Curse client and re-installed - still the same result.

    Altoholic was working fine until I updated it this morning, and I have changed no other add-ons after that update.

    I have been using Altoholic for over three years - it is my absolute favorite add-on, because I am an Altoholic.  Any ideas anyone has to make this work again are greatly appreciated.

    If you use curse client left click >> last option.

    Version 4.3 not supported on wow 5.0.4, please upgrade to 5.0.001c (just uploaded, awaiting admin approval), don't forget to clean your saved variables.

  • #5011

    I have reviewed posts made since yesterday, sorry no time to reply to everyone.

    Here is the changelog so far:

    - Fixed tooltip showing "No data" for herbalism in the Skills pane.. for good this time !

    - Fixed a Lua error when scanning glyphs.. for good this time too ! (Thanks Sylvannis)

    - Fixed a Lua error when clicking on glyphs, blaming DataStore_Crafts and/or DataStore_Achievements.

    - Note: About pets & mounts. I know that they are now account wide, but I will leave things as they are for a little while, that is at least until the expansion launches. I want to see how things actually turn out to see what has value or not, or what could be modified to remain useful.

    Also, I see here a few errors that are likely to be related to saved variables that were not deleted.

    Make sure this happens prior to using version 5.x

    I should release 5.0.001c in a couple of hours.

    Hey, the Altoholic Summary isn't working right for me.  It's coming up on my screen as disabled and I can't seem to toggle it back.  Wanted to let you know.  Thanks for the update, everything else is working for me

  • #5009

    I am getting the following message when I open the altoholic window:

    Message: ..\AddOns\Altoholic\Altoholic.lua line 361:    attempt to index field 'Characters' (a nil value) Debug:    [C]: ?    Altoholic\Altoholic.lua:361: OnShow()    [string "*:OnShow"]:1:       [string "*:OnShow"]:1    [C]: Show()    Altoholic\Altoholic.lua:348: ToggleUI()    [string "*:OnClick"]:2:       [string "*:OnClick"]:1

    In addition, it says Altoholic is disabled in my main chat window.  This happens everytime I click on the summary tab.

    The other tabs appear to be working fine.
