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.

    Error message ? Send me your sv files by mail, I can look at them and tell you what's wrong.
  • #2441
    1) I'd love to have a column in activity that says how many of the 50 mailbox entries are used, so I can know to clean out some before older mails get deleted.
    2) FYI (and for others) I had problems with error messages when installing altoholic 3.3, which was solved by deleting my old altoholic and datastore data form SavedVariables and reacquiring.
    3) Some of the companion icons are of the wrong companion, or a black square.

    Otherwise, I *love* this addon.
  • #2439
    I'm unsure if i'm blind or something but i believe Altoholic isnt showing Ashen Verdict reputation.

    Thanx for a great addon tho =D
  • #2443
    same problem here
  • #2437
    Seems like it's time for application requests, eh? So......

    My suggestion is to color code Recipes/Patterns/etc in the AH so I can determine at a glance if my characters already know it. Checking 3 or 4 pages of recipes one at a time back to my character's profession list is a chore that is frequently too time consuming to do. If you decide to add such a feature, please consider situations where multiple characters have the same profession, such as cooking.

    tanx heaps for a cool addon. By no means do I use all the features, but those I do use are a tremendous time saver.
  • #2461
    Planned.
  • #2438
    http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/armory.aspx

    Just by mousing over the pattern or clicking the link in chat. It lists under the description all the toons that know the pattern in question. Maybe if you can get an idea from this mod...

    However no one ever got back to me about how much data Altoholic uses. However from the list of things that people suggest and Armory actually does, I'm thinking about staying =/
  • #2462
    12 chars, 1 Gbank, 4-5 megs.
  • #2436
    I have too had a lot of disconnects since last patch. So I have removed all outdated addons. Still I got big lagspikes, some resulting in disconnects. I turned on Show LUA errors. And it's DataStore causing them together with some of the Blizzard ones. By now I have disabled Altoholic as well, with no more LUA errors and disconnects. Still have a few spikes, but not as many and large.

    Miss Altoholic a lot though. Please update DataStore!
  • #2460
    If you take the latest package from this site or wow interface, you'll get all the latest versions. When testing, make sure that this happens with ONLY altoholic & all datastore modules enabled, as sometimes, disconnects can be caused by incompatibilities.
  • #2605
    thanks, gonna try this out =)

    Hi, Thaoky,

    first of all thanks very much for this brilliant Addon! I have been using it for about a year now, and I can't imagine doing without it.

    Unfortunately, though, since the last patch it doesn't work any more. I have installed the latest version, and when I am in the Character selection page and look at the list of addons there, Altoholic is displayed in red, and it tells me "Dependency missing". Hovering over the name shows that the missing Dependencies are supposed to be DataStore. DataStore_Characters and DataStore_Containers. But when looking at my folder, I have these sub-folders, and they contain some files each. (Which I could list, if you want, IO just think that might be a bit too much for this first comment)

    I should perhaps mention that I run WoW on a Mac, not Windows. And interestingly, the exactly same addon with exactly the same extracted files work just fine on a friend's PC under Windows.

    Can you help me, please? I would be truly grateful!
  • #2459
    I've got a few guildmates playing on Max, that shouldn't be a problem.
    The only thing I could point out is that under windows, wow will skip directory name with a space in them. So make sure it is not the case.
  • #2434
    I have the latest version of altoholic including DataStore_Quests, but I don't see how to open the quest logs of my alts. Can someone tell me which option or menu item to use please?

    Would it also be possible to report which alts have done the daily heroic now that the daily heroic is no longer a quest per se?
  • #2458
    In the characters tab, there's a quest button.
    Regarding the dailies/weeklies, it's planned too, just a bit on the backburner since I've been working on stabilizing the existing lately.
