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.

    You have to clean your SV files, this was mandatory for 4.0. I added a workaround to prevent the error message, but you STILL HAVE TO CLEAN YOUR SV FILES !
  • #3898
    The transfer of recipes known and unknown to the tooltip is not working properly. Recipes known are showing as unknown in one section and known in another section of same tooltip
  • #3897
    I have updated to latest 4.0.0004c and still have problem with Mage error on Talents; only fix that i have found that works is the one mentioned by Xilion.
  • #3896
    excellent that fixed it for me :)
  • #3895
    The r29 version of Datastore_Talents that "DefenderOfSteel" is referring to below
    can be found here
    http://wow.curseforge.com/addons/datastore_talents/files/7198-r29/
    or rather here
    http://static.curseforge.net/content/files/481/982/DataStore_Talents-r29.zip

    The Changlog entry is rather interesting, btw.
    -------------------------------------------------
    r29 | thaoky | 2010-11-24 19:00:31 +0000 (Wed, 24 Nov 2010) | 1 line
    Changed paths:
    M /trunk/DataStore_Talents.lua

    Fixed a Lua error when logging on with a mage.
    -------------------------------------------------

    I was actually on my mage when I got the lua error reported by others, too.
    -------------------------------------------------
    Message: ...rface\AddOns\DataStore_Talents\DataStore_Talents.lua line 213:
    bad argument #1 to 'gsub' (string expected, got nil)
    -------------------------------------------------

    And it seems to be fixed with r29.
  • #3894
    It looks like the Datastore_Talents included with this release is v28. I got the same error on my mage, so I checked out Alto's curse page and found v29 there, which solved my problem. Been running on it without problems so far.
  • #3892
    must agree with the poster below i prefered the old style. all my errors point to datastore so until its fixed i won't be using.
    sorry
  • #3891
    Ok, this might be a silly request, but is there a way to get the "old" layout back for Altoholic? Personally, i really dont like the new layout. I prefer the one like in the first screenshot, easier to use and better to see. Besides that, i love this addon..
  • #3920
    Well, with the amount of features now present in the addon, I don't think I can afford rolling back on the UI :/
  • #3890
    My problem is that although i have 8 chars only 2 char showed in the char equipment view. any ideas?
  • #3905
    I also have a similar problem to this.. on the Character/Equipment view, it will only show one character. In the Achievements list, it'll only show two characters.
  • #3919
    Fixed in 4.0.005
  • #3889
    I have had to remove Altoholic because of the same error message.

    I think the mod is wonderful and have donated to it because I think it is really helpful, but I am worried that DataStore problems will mess up my game so I'm reluctantly taking Altohlic off until things get worked out. :(
  • #3918
    Fix coming today, sorry it took so long to update, RL got in the way.
  • #3888
    Many addons have the version number on the archive (.zip file), this helps avoid confusion over what version is being downloaded.

    It would also prevent overwriting a previous download and allows a roll-back if the newer version has serious bugs or was corrupted in some way.


    Awesome addon, I give it 5 stars.
