AI's display windows are built from "virtual bars", you assign categories to bars so that items in that category are displayed on the specific bars you want. There is no limit to the number of bars you can have inside a window but obviously you only have so much screen real estate before it becomes "too many".

AI uses several methods to assign a default category to an item such as what professions you have, tooltip scanning, basic type/subtype and PeriodicTable. You then assign those categories to a virtual bar.

You can also over-ride the default category by creating a rule that matches either a single or multiple items.

Overview:

  • unlimited number of bars (there are practical limits though before your screen becomes full)
  • assign items to a category of your choice (overrides the default assignment)
  • assign categories to the bar of your choice
  • configurable bars per row
  • configurable width
  • separate keybindings for each location for easy viewing


Key Bindings:
Press ESCAPE to bring up the blizzard menu
click on Key Bindings
scroll down to ArkInventory
bind the keys you want to use

See ReadMe.txt and VersionHistory.txt for further details

Beta Versions:

ensure you make a backup copy of your saved variables file before installing a beta version - you normally cannot revert back to the release version without that backup. your saved variable file is normally located in World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\yourwowaccountname\SavedVariables\ArkInventory.lua

if you have the curse client set to download beta versions then it is your responsibility to ensure you have adequate backups of your saved variables file - do not complain if you lose them or they get screwed up because you installed a beta version, its what beta versions tend to do.

a simple way to back it up is to just do a copy and paste then rename the new file (using the version number of AI or the date is a good idea), eg ArkInventory-3-01-09.lua, or ArkInventory-2013-12-28.lua

    Thanks for the response. I just edited my comment to reflect the fact that I was looking to see all character including cross faction before I saw your response. As it is right now, I will see all horde while on a horde character and all alliance while on an alliance character on the same realm.

    ah ok, i can change it so that the item tooltip options are used for the gold amounts as well, that should give people enough options to be happy with

    That would be perfect. I look forward to connected realm support in the future, but this will work fine until that comes.

    Does anyone know if there is a way to consolidate items into a specific bag in the inventory or bank? I know that I can emtpy a bag, and I can move things between bars. I've currently got a lot of stone in my bank. It's spread between two bags that aren't full. I'd like to fill one bag with stone, and then another with the rest of the stone. Then, to take it a step further and do what I ultimately want to do, I want to move the entire contents of a bag in my bank over to my inventory with a right-click or something vs. right-clicking on every item individually in the bank to move it to my inventory. I don't know if the api allows that or not. Just seems like it would make inventory management a little more convenient if it's possible.

    no, the whole point of an all in one bag mod is to ignore where an item ends up physically, you just display it where/how you want via the mod.

    its not coded to do it because it never seemed useful, and its not about physical locations.  i could possibly write the ability to transfer an entire *bars* contents to/from the bank but that means adding a way to click on a bar when youre not in edit mode.

    Hi, firstly thanks for such a marvelous mod, I have used it since it first came out, but I took a 6 month break from WoW and now all my rules have disappeared could you please tell me where the rules are stored as I would like to have my bags sorted the way I used to have them.  Thank you. :)

  • #4839

    under the ...\WTF\Account\accountname\SavedVariables folder

    if your variables are all garbage then maybe look for the .bak file and change it to a .lua file

    Thanks very much :)

    Are there any instructions anywhere for the mount functionality? Most if not all of the wiki and faq stuff seems to deal with the inventory aspect of the addon. The configuration seems to be straight forward, but I can't get it to behave the way I want. Maybe I'm not understanding the configuration options, I don't know.

    What I'm trying to do is have a couple of my 'flying' mounts randomly chosen as ground mounts. Specifically I'd like to be able to use Blue Wind Rider, Swift Purple Wind Rider, and Hearthsteed as ground mounts. If I go into the configuration and click the "flying" tab, I can click on Hearthsteed, for example, and the drop-down boxes show "land - yes" and "flying - yes". I assume this means that I want to use this mount as both a flying and land mount. However, if I click the icon on my titan panel and select "land", it only shows my land-only mounts. My flying mounts aren't selectable and aren't randomly chosen. If I try to chose the "flying" option from Titan Panel it says my skill isn't high enough, which is correct. I wonder if that's why it won't let me use the flying mounts on land?

  • #4835

    actually was easier than i thought.  the ability to select a flight capable mount as a land mount will be in the next release

    Just tested this out and I was able to successfully summon my hearthsteed and swift purple wind rider as ground mounts on a level 20 character. Thanks for the update!

  • #4833

    the mount code is fairly basic, if you dont have the flying skill then you cannot see any flight capable mounts - even if you want to use it as your land mount.

    i'll see if i can change the code and menu around to show them but its going to make that list potentially very long (will have to add an option to turn it on/off)

  • #4838

    if you dont use an LDB capable mod to show the buttons there is a menu off the mount locations main menu that has the same structure.

    ie open the mount location, click on the icon in the top left, select Mounts and go from there

  • #4837

    Wow, thanks for the quick response. I'm using "Random Mount" for now. It summons my flying mounts to use as ground mounts so far. I don't know if you can get any information from that addon or not. That one doesn't appear to have any gui though, and since I already have arkinventory installed anyway for the inventory management, I'd rather use ark. The other addon is getting me by for now though.

    Since the last update I have been having trouble with this addon causing an Error #134 on my WoW logins. I have traced it down to this addon alone as it happens when I have this addon alone set to load up and am still getting the error. I have also traced it to my current setup as if I delete my current LUA and then reload a backup it works for the first time that I login. If I then log out and try to login again I will error out again.

    What I think I am really trying to get at is their any way of saving the categories and setups that I use for my bag configurations?

    I run 12 different configurations. 1 for each class and 1 for my Bank toons. Setting up all of these configs is very time consuming and tedious and I have done so in the past and really do not want to do so again manually if I do not have to do so. I cannot just keep reloading a back up as it only works for that one session of play. Any help would be greatly appreciated. FG34
