About ArkInventory

the FAQ is here

the wiki is here

please ensure you have read those before you lodge a ticket at

when posting a comment about an error do not include the list of addons, just the actual error and trace is fine.

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.


  • 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

    The items do appear if you click them, but then disappear immediately.

  • #4452

    im at work so this isnt going to get fixed for at least 12 hours

    if all the textures are really bright green then that texture is missing - its possible that blizzard are caching the textures now so you dont have them when you start - does it still do it after a /reload or exit?

    it could also be a bug in the bag highlight code - if you could open the bag changer and mouseover a bag, see if it highlights and then brings them all back, or not.

    its also possible that its a background issue, you may want to try changing the items background from texture to just a plain colour and see if that helps (it probably wont)

  • #4460

    No luck, Ark.  Tried a /reload, relogging, no change.

    Bag changer also didn't change anything.

    Played around in config:  Nothing there seems to have much effect.  Tried Settings->Window->Background, played around in Frames, and under both Items and Bars.  Nothing I did had ANY effect, even Clumping, which should've changed the way the window was drawn.

    I think the fault lies higher up than just display of items.

    Worth noting though; if you click and hold on an item, the icon are still there.  Item counts show through the green.

  • #4466


    If I type a search in the box for anything, even something that doesn't exist, it moves to a darker green color and I can see all of the items in my bag.

    I think it's worth noting that BugSack isn't trapping an AI errors.

  • #4457

    If you go into edit mode the buttons for each bar are also green, and the item textures do show up when you click them.

  • #4454

    All bag spaces are bright bright green. You can mouse over and see the tool tips, you can even see the quantities. Reloading the game doesn't change it. 

    Highlighting a bag turns all items a darker shade of green, not a giant change in color but notacible. Do the items appear no. I went through all the options and that doesn't help either.

  • #4449

    You better hurry up and fix this.  Bag*** is rising up the "Top Downloads" list so I think people are switching rapidly.

  • #4459

    I'm one of the people who downloaded Bagnon today because ArkInventory is broken. It's better than the default, but it doesn't compare to ArkInventory. I'll definitely be switching back to this one as soon as it's updated.

  • #4465

    Same, I'll be switching back once Ark gets a chance to fix it!

  • #4456

    How dare an addon author have an outside job and not fix things immediately just to please you. Yes, the green is annoying, but it's not like it will be like this permanently. I've tried many bag mods and none of them are anywhere near as good. When I saw the green, I disabled AI and went to the default ElvUI bag layout...30 seconds later I switched back. Even with the green ArkInventory is still superior.

    Thanks for checking in Arkayenro, so many addon authors never post an ETA for a fix, so it's appreciated.

  • #4468

    No need to be rude or put words in my mouth.  We all love Ark and want to see it fixed soon.

  • #4453

    lol, i dont care how many people use, or dont use, my mod.

    whatever the issue is it'll get fixed because im still using the mod.

  • #4467

    Thanks for the reply and the ETA.  Ark is the best so I'm sure a lot of them will switch back.

  • #4451

    They'll probably switch back.  Ark is just amazing  ^^

  • #4448

    yea nice addon, green sucks for now, but if you just search for it in the search, or just type anything 1 letter, and the green goes away kinda and you can see your stuff for now
