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.

    Thank you so much for your intent to keep supporting it. I really don't know what I would do without this  ;-)

  • #5420

    Thank you for keeping this up to date.

    I have posted a ticket under Datastore_Reputations with regard to updates to reputations slowing the system down.  Would you please take a look and apply or fix the issue please?  As whenever you put out a new version now, I'm having to put my hack/fix back in place. I'm not sure how many others are experiencing this same problem.

  • #5429
    Thank you for your time and effort!
  • #5426

    You're welcome and no rush, just glad that you are still keeping this alive and up to date :).

    And I totally agree with you about the dailies, MoP has definitely been the worst expansion to date.  I think there has been too much corporate interferance with the content.

  • #5421

    I have seen your ticket, you were right, there was a bug.

    No time to upload the fix today though. I'll upload tomorrow or Wednesday.

    Thanks :)

    Profession Cooldown Announcement

    Greetings,

      I haven't seen this posted (maybe I did a crappy search job though); but every day at 2am it announces that my professions are ready in 'x' minutes, however it's not ready until 3 hours later at 5am (CST).  Can this be changed somewhere in the LUA?

  • #5415

    Aloha to Thaoky and readers!

    Yeah, I've been experiencing this too. Kind of annoying, not for the sake of being caught out time-wise, but the spam in the chat box. Yea, I guess there's probably a way to not have them notify in chat, but that's kinda the point, right? I do like this feature alot, since I can tell when I missed a profession cooldown by the lack of a messege to say it's ready at 'XX:XX' time. Would love to see a fix / workaround for this.

    That being said, fantastic addon, really useful and props for the effort that goes into it!

  • #5413

    Wondering how I remove the guild reference from a character after I have left the guild?

    When you mouseover the character name in the summary tab the guild that you last left still shows up.

    Currently using the lastest build.

    Thanks for a very good add-on.

    I have two accounts, five alts on one account and three on the other, all in the same guild and realm. I cannot see all eight alts from either account, only the alts for the account I'm logged in to wow under at the time. I love altoholic. What am I doing wrong that I can't see my alts across my accounts? The following leads me to believe I should be able to:

    All this with multiple-realms/accounts support.

    Where may I look to find the answer?

    Lost.

    Altoholic stopped loading on one of my toons. When I look under game menu/interface/addons, the first add-on listed for him is Bagnon. For all my other toons, it's Altoholic, then Bagnon. He can't access the Altoholic menu and doesn't get its tool-tips, since it's not loaded on him; but I just checked, and the others can see what's in his bags, including things added _since_ Altoholic stopped loading on him. I've tried completely uninstalling via Curse.com and then redownloading, twice, to no avail. I don't know what else to try. Any suggestions?

  • #5416

    Having the same problem.  Thought it was just the minimap icon at first but can't find Altoholic listed in the addon interface menu for my main.  Have it on my alts though.

  • #5409

    Could you add counts for the recrated pets?

     

  • #5408

    I notice that updating this addon (with curse client) for some reason does not grab the updated DataStore files. Example -  my datastore mails is r26 and when i look on curseforge there's r38....

    Now, if i grab the r38 and drop it in my folder, will it play nice with the rest of the addon ??

  • #5407

    "script ran to long" seems to be a Blizz thing from what i can find. If you remove the addon that throws the error, it'll blame it on another one. Doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it.

    The problem im having is the mail. for some reason it ignores random toons. Im having to manualy check all 42 of mine.
