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.

IMPORTANT NOTE: 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 meager price to pay once per expansion.

    Is it perhaps possible to add the ability to track available/undone daily quests? I'm currently looking for a way to quickly check to see which of my alts has NOT done their dailies.
  • #4017
    Does this app work across multiple accounts? I have two seperate accounts and it would be nice to view the contents of my characters on the second account while logged into my first account.
  • #4016
    well, even if the mats for Cata items aren't being shown the items themselves are...better than no Cata items being shown. Still, a fix would be appreciated.
  • #4014
    I am a sad panda that this addon and author are MIA... Such a geat addon. Hopefully someone can take it over if the original author doesn't come back.
  • #4013
    Hello, i've problem with altoholic, ok not a real problem ...
    Anyway: If i open profession window on an alt character and use the sort like "material available" and log out/switch to another character, altoholic recognize those sort and i can see in the altoholic profession window for other characters only these sorting ... no matter as the twink can for sure made more things.

    Any ideas?
  • #4012
    Seriously, how the fuck do I get this mail is about to expire error to go away? It keeps popping up and I dont have any mail about to expire.
  • #4021
    expand the DataStore section. Go to DataStore_Mails and uncheck the "Mail Expiry Warning".
  • #4011
    I use this addon for my characters that are on multiple servers, but I noticed that the calendar is not adjusting for server time differences, so I get a reminder for events after I have missed them. Can this be fixed?
  • #4009
    The Ace3 libs packaged with this addon are obsolete. Please update, and provide a nolib version of the release version for those of us who prefer separate libraries. It looks like the alpha version is the same code, so I am manually installing that, but it then must be updated manually.
  • #4008
    I keep getting a "unread mail" error and I cant figure out how to correct it. I infact do not have any unread mail, even on activity panel it says 0 mails for all characters, yet I still get the view unchecked mail whatever message everytime I log in.
  • #4007
    I'm still showing calendar events from an ex-guild for one of my characters. How do I reset/refresh this?
  • #4006
    the addon now checks my mail when i open my mailbox, the box to turn it off in the mail is now gone, please add it so it doesn't register my mail as read now all the time.. thanks
  • #4005
    I love this AddOn, but the recent version has some issues.

    (1) I keep getting LUA errors attributed to DataStore modules. My Engineer's recipes don't seem to be registering.

    (2) I may be missing something, but could you have an option to "lock" the header icons in the Equipment frame? It's annoying to get that persistent popup when mousing over them. I put them into the order I want, now let's be done with it.

    (3) Equipment mouseover tooltips seem to be gone. I can't get any information on that frame.

    Thanks for the good work. I'm specially fond of the recently added vendor and AH coloring option!
  • #4004
    By far not as awesome as it used to be!
    There are a lot of unresolved issues atm -- as probably experienced "altoholics" know.
    I really don't want to take "Thaoky's route" again and try to rewrite an addon due to the current one being badly maintained.

    Please, Thaoky, hear my call!
    I would love to help making "Altoholic" as good as it used to be.
