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.

    I'm trying to share between my husband's account and mine. We both enabled sharing, we both authorized each other's toons. We both clicked "All" for what we wanted to share. I went to account sharing request. I typed in an account name, and his toon's name. I clicked "Send Request". It says "Getting table of content from <Toon's name>, but there's nothing under the "Available Content" window.

    What are we missing?

  • #5350

    It's still not tracking what chars that knows the individual glyphs ("Already known by" in tooltip). It only seems to work for the pre-MoP glyphs.

    I got loads of mats and want to make the glyphs that each of my 11 chars is currently missing, but I can't trust Altoholic to tell me what chars that are missing certain glyphs :(

    Grid tab only showing 10 classes, no Monk.

  • #5353

    it does show monks, it just doesn't show your 11th character. note you can change which column shows which toon.

    However I'd love to see an 11th column in a future version!

  • #5347

    Any reason why the curse client keeps saying there is a new update available when there isn't? IDK if it is a problem with curse client or altoholic. 

  • #5346

    Update 12/21/2012 - This fix no longer seems to work as it appears something else has chnaged in on of the last updates that now causes all the inventory as well as the progession patterns learned to stop showing up as well.

    Guess I will post this again as this change was not made

    So, it has not failed yet but I believe I have a fix for the tooltip item count info disappearing. I made the following changes to the Altoholic_Grids\TabGrids.lua

    Line 124: "if index > 10 then"    changed to  "if index > 11 then"

    Line 129: "while index <= 10 do"    changed to  "while index <= 11 do"

    and the floowing

    Altoholic\Frames\AccountSharing.lua(556): NumLines = 11, -- I CHANGED TO 11 FROM 10

    After making these changes it seems to be working.

    Also remeber to delete the datastore files in the WTF including teh backups once this change is made

    I also am having game crashes when altoholic is running. Usually it is in dungeon when rolling for loot. I get wow error 132 and wow error 138. I turned off Altoholic and I am no longer getting any game crashes but when it was running I got it in every heroic I was in. I also get datastore errors that popup in game when I am mousing over items, maybe it has to do with the item tooltip needing to display what other characters have it? 

  • #5344

    Please add support to see each alt's farm status. How many slots in farm and what each slot has at the moment.

  • #5343

    I just noticed something odd about alotholic.  You haven't updated the number of comparison comlumns yet to the number of toons a person can have on any given server.  There are still 10, should update this to the 11 available as there are now 11 slots and classes now availiable.

    Me and several other friends have noticed that Altoholic causes the game to crash while a loot-roll is being started, this is very problematic in lfr and raids.

    I know it is this addon, because I have started from scratch and added 1 addon per lfr run until I found the culprit, which was this one.

  • #5358

    Now re-start from scratch, and only load up this one and see if you still have the problem.

     

    It could be a clash between this addon, and one of the other addons that you loaded in previously
