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

    unfortunately no, ai uses direct mapping and hands off all of  the processing to the underlying blizzard code.

    if i had to virtualise the items i'd need to write a whole bunch of intermediary code.  possible but it would take a long time to get it working.

  • #4310

    I am trying to use ArkInventory and I keep getting the following Message:

    "failsafe kicked in - aborting arkinventory translations due to an error of some sort"

    Is there anything I can do to fix this? I really miss Arkinventory! my bags are a mess!!!!!! :( 

    I have Version 3.03.15

  • #4314

    rename your arkinventory saved variables and then start wow, see if the issue is still there - translation errors are usually the game being exceedingly slow returning tooltip data but its possible the saved variables is corrupt.

    if it still gives you errors on the new sv file then its the game, if not then it was the sv file - you can mail it to me and ill try to save your config.

    if you have a backup you can restore that instead (yeah i know)

  • #4301

    I am trying to get bag/category names to show up. I go to config->settings->bags->bars->name and check show, and I can see the space being generated on top of the bars/categories for where the name should fit, but I see no bar titles. What am I doing wrong?

  • #4307

    you named the bars?  ie in config mode when you click on a bar number does the name entry have text in it?

  • #4300

    recently, I'm being unable to utilize the search feature for arkinventory - the large search box will pop up, but no items show up after I've typed in the item I'm looking for. Nor can I just search within the bags themselves anymore, any suggestions? Thanks for having such an awesome add on overall! I love the sorting features.

  • #4306

    it relies on the server coming back with tooltip data (im presuming yours isnt cached for whatever reason so it only displays the icon)

    i know i had an issue last light with a glyph not having a tooltip for more than 10 minutes so its possible its just a server issue that will go away

  • #4299

    be nice as a wishlist sorta thing, when looking for vault icons for the window to be a bit damn bigger than it is, and maybe a search function based on the ID # to make it a bit faster when you really wanna find that one icon. just 2c

  • #4305

    change the scale option for that window to make it larger, or change the icon scale so that the just the icons are larger (yes the window will get larger to accomodate)

  • #4298

    This may seem like an odd question. I've been using AI for some time now. However, all of my toons up until recently have been in the same faction on one realm. I recently created a toon of the opposite faction on a different realm.

    Should AI tooltips show information from both realms, or does it only work on a per realm basis? Does that also apply to the money LDB? It's only showing the gold I have for that particular realm.

  • #4304

    not by default, you can turn it on in the config, under tooltips.  the LDB money object will only show same faction because there isnt a way to directly transfer gold across factions (that i know of)

  • #4308

    I unchecked "Faction only" on both my Alliance toons and the Horde toon, which is on a different realm. The tooltip counts are still only showing the count for the realm I'm on at that moment. I'm assuming that's the correct setting.

  • #4296

    For some reason in the last week or so my ArkInventory is making my mail opening lag.  I went through and disabled my addons one by one and finally when I turned off Ark the lag was gone.  Anybody else having this issue?

  • #4303

    if you have a lot of items in your mail it will lag as it rescans when you remove one - i need to find a better way to scan mail but its not like a bag with numbered slots, its just sequential data, so when you remove the first item efectively every other item changes

  • #4294

    Items assigned to custom categories as well as the associated bag sections dont follow from one character to another, even when they share the same profile. 

    I have created three custom categories for cooking ingredients, food gifts and seeds on one character.  When I leveled cooking with my alt I was hoping that all settings would copy over when I use same profile on both toons, but I found out that only the created categories did. I had to assign what section of alt's bags particular category should be assigned to as well as add all particular items from the scratch (foods, ingredients and seeds) to respective categories. 

    Any way I can set those things once and for all?
