Ackis Recipe List strives to integrate with existing trade skill mods out there. If you have a request for integration, please submit a feature request at WoW Ace. We make no promises to implement the feature at all. There is a limited API documented to interface with the ARL database.

James D. Callahan III:
    - Finally got around to implementing ticket #996 after roughly three years and ten months.
    - Moved the "Display Exclusions" and "Skill" checkboxes.
    - Changed AddAllWaypoints to insert the recipe object into the WAYPOINT_ENTITIES table, rather than its spell id.
    - Made another reversion to DisplayAcquireData() - GnomeWorks expected the recipe to be a spell ID.
    - Added SpellID Recipe method.
    - Moved some things around.
    - Cleanups and clarifications.
    - Hrm - recipe.spell_id was inexplicably replaced with in a few places. This has been rectified, which also fixes ticket #1605
    - Replaced private.acquire_list with a table on the AcquireTypes themselves, supported by the AssignRecipe, GetRecipe, GetSortedRecipes, and RecipePairs methods.
    - Cleanup of Sort_Acquisition(), and changed it to use the actual AcquireTypes.
    - Cleaned up private.SortRecipeList() and added the sorted list as a return value.
    - Make sure the AcquireType isn't nil before attempting to get its ID.
    - AcquireType:Entities()=>AcquireType:EntityPairs()
    - I overzealously changed a parameter type for DisplayAcquireData, forgetting that it was used as an API for other AddOns (GnomeWorks). Whoops. Reverted.

    Any chances that there will be a filter for Ignored recipes?
    Ignored recipes still count toward the total recipes, and after ignored the "Unavaible to Players" recipes (Netherflame, Naxx40's Glacials, Boots of Darkness) from my tailoring window, they still counted toward the total recipes and screw up my total %.
  • #317
    Good idea, please ticket it. :)

    First priority with ignored recipes is a way to make them unignored.
  • #330
    Actually, if you include "Show ignored recipes in the list" you can unignore them :P, where's the problem there?
  • #375
    A lot of people missed that... I think I made it a bit more obvious.

    I need to make the ignored recipes removed from the overall count like you've asked.
  • #313
    Yah I know about the enchants missing. :(

    Let me know about skill levels please.

    Amyely, what's the error that you get?

    Make a ticket for adding recipe info back into the tooltip, if there's enough votes for it I'll readd it.
  • #312
    Ackis Recipe List: Enchant Chest - Major Health 20026: is missing from the database.
  • #310
    Hi ... love this add on few things tho on this release

    can you move the scan button or make it a little smaller? On some proffs and with smaller UI scales it ends up covering the new Proff linking button that blizz put in (I see there is a new build today so if you have already fixed that, thanks and nevermind

    Also I get an error whenever I try to link a pattern into chat, and I don;t know if it was changed or removed or blocked by blizzard but I also am not getting tooltips for the pattern on hover, Like you used to when hovering on the + next to the recipe, I miss that.
  • #309
    Yup those are missing from wowdb right now, but will be added soon (I hope).
  • #308

    -Haliscan Jacket 50644 (Tailoring)
    -Haliscan Pantaloons 50647 (Tailoring)

    Hi, no idead how to reach you other than here so will post some missing recipes here:

    Haliscan Jacket 50644
    Haliscan Pantaloons 50647
    Dress Shoes 49677

    I got a message about some enchanting recipe missing as well, but don´t know which one it was. Will update when i get home.
    Also you are missing at least 2 cooking recipes, will try to find those too.

    I have to compliment you on the addon and keep up the good work.
  • #311
    I assume you are referring to the achievements interface listing 2 more recipes than seems to be counting the expert and master cookbooks you use to master the skill. @Ackis: I double checked your list just now, you appear to have every cooking recipe. Great mod.

    Hello Ackis, i really love this addon and am lost without it. i was trying to use skillet with this addon, is that ok firstoff?

    Also my profession is inscription and im having a hard time gettin your addon to work, here is the error i got this morning after installing beta 7 (which still says beta6 ingame)

    interface\addons\ackisrecipelist\arlframe.lua:322:attempt to concatenate local 'recstr' (a nil value)

    the first time i got the error i was using skillet so i uninstalled it and just used yours and still got the same thing with the actual window showing up with no recipes and a weird word with all the + marks beside them. plus in chat it pretty much listed all of the recipes for inscription that the addon did not know and said to tell you.

    so i guess im hoping i can use this for inscription, hopefully you can get it fixed.

    thank you for your hard work, love this addon and will be lost without it:)
  • #305
    Hi Ackis and thanks for a wonderful addon. I'm a miner however, and it tells me that I know all recipes for this trade skill when I do a scan.

    However, while I once did know 'Smelt Elementium' before switching tradeskills I certainly don't know it now. Yet it doesn't show as a lacking skill.

    I'm aware that this recipe was somewhat weird as it could even be taught to non-miners.
  • #303
    A text file would be nice for new users. It is advertised as working with most other proff adons but I seem to have a problem with ATSW. I don't even see the scan button. And again, with no text file I have no idea what the / commands are.
