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

    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.

  • #4831

    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

  • #4834

    open arkinventory.lua under the savedvariables folder in something like notepad++ (if you set the language to lua then it allows you to collapse the table in sections)

    find ARKINVDB [global] [player] [data] [toon/guild name] [location] and delete the entire location table, including the [location] tag itself (you need to do this for each toon/guild)

    it will now contain just the setup without any item data, save it and keep a backup of it somewhere safe

    This is a really good addon in my limited experience with it. It has a bit of a learning curve and took me an hour or so to get a feel for everything, but it's turning out quite nice. Is there a forum somewhere to discuss the addon?

    I have encountered one little issue that I'm having with a particular item that I can't get to match a rule that, as far as I can tell, it should match. The item is: Faded Wizard Hat. The debug thing says that it is type armor and subtype miscellaneous. So I created a rule: type("armor") and subtype("miscellaneous") but the item is still being matched to system > equippable items (soulbound). I'm basically trying to set up a bar that will hold only my hunter usable gear. It currently shows anything that is leather with agility on it and any guns or bows. I want the other gear to be in a different bar so I can more easily see what to auction and what to hold onto. This particular item is a vanity item that I would like to have in the hunter gear bar because I want to keep it. The miscellaneous rule is matching a ring that I have, so it seems to work, but it won't match that hat. For now I'll just assign it to some other category and put that in there, but I'm curious as to why it's not working the way I think it should work. If anyone has any insight, I'd appreciate it. TIA

    EDIT: Created a custom category "vanity" and put the hat and other neat or cool looking items in that category in their own bar. Still curious why the rule for that hat won't work though. I couldn't even get it to work with equip head.

    go into edit mode, click on the item, click on the default category, that should reset it if it was set to use that specific system category.

    if you assign a system (or custom) category to an item it has a higher priority than a rule trying to find it. thats usually the reason why rules dont pick up specific items

  • #4828

    new beta version is up, please make sure you backup your savedvariables before you install it

  • #4827

    I just wanted to pop in and say that ArkInventory was one of the addons in wow I could not live without back in BC/WotLK. You are awesome. I wish i had an inventory addon that was even half as good in Wildstar. <3

    That's all. You can carry on being awesome now. *tips his hat*

  • #4826

    Yo, i love this addon and have used it for some years now :p

    Lately ive had a problem when i make a new charecter the items in my bagpack wont show, it just shows that my bags are embty, its only when i make a new char the ones ive had for some time i dont got that problmem.

    And one more question :p

    Why is it that i cant use the search function in my chars bagpacks? it works when im in my bank

  • #4825

    Do you guys know if there is a way to assign two different item categories to two copies of the same piece of gear? like an option for marking them as two separate items? that would immensely help me to keep my gear sets distinct!

  • #4824

  • #4822
