About Loot Filter

Development on the 3.x branch is drawing to a close. tweak321 will only be fixing major "the sky is falling" bugs while a new major release is developed.

Some highlights for the 4.x branch

  • Ordering of filter processing
  • New config window
  • Support for custom filter types
  • Support for custom item value method (Auctioneer, Glypher, etc)

Are you tired of deleting all the crap items from your inventory that you get from looting corpses? Or are you tired of having to manually click the items you want from a corpse? Then this addon is for you. It lets you filter loot by quality, item name and item value, and helps you keep your inventory clean. It also features an option to easily sell or delete items in bulk.

    Tried both, from Wizardpro and Elegant996, but doesn't work for me.

    LF doesn't delete anything even if the ON checkbox is enabled.

    At least, no more error message occured.

    I just played around with LOOT_PARSE_DELAY setting it to a higher value of 5.5 and it seems it sometimes filters an item (very rarely),

    but now I get a red Blizzard Error Line on the screen saying "This object is busy" each time a loot window has closed.


    Patched Karni's Crap Filter doesn't work either. It simply does... nothing. :D

    Best working for me actually is LootBuddy, but it can't handle german umlaute or special chars and it has no RegEx built in. So item names containing umlaute/special chars have to be deleted manually.

    I have the same problem, tried turning autoloot off it worked for a few minutes but it still keeps the grey stuff. Any way to fix this?


    EDIT: I downloaded Karni's Crap Filter and made the fix for 5.0.5 and it seems to work for me, I'll just stick to that addon.

    Спасибо Wizardpro!

    Replace line 73 in main.lua with:     

    if GetLootSlotType(twSlot) == LOOT_SLOT_ITEM then

    You can also change the .toc file  using 50200... but it still will show as out of date.  Just load out of date addons.

    the error is gone and the Loot Filter appears to work as intended.

    Keep the 3.x branch as is and just update it for 5.0... I'm not sure what the need was for a major overhaul but i've really enjoyed using 3.x for the custom editable filter lists.

    Hands down still the most valuble addon for multiboxing besides jamba  that i've ever used.

    3.x only seems to need minor code updates otherwise it still works fantastic thanks to the code fix that was posted :)

    Its nice to see that people are still using LootFilter. I haven't played WoW for quite some time. I'm willing to allow someone to pick up development of my v4.x branch. That person would need to talk to Meter about using the LootFilter name but, my code ( is available for anyone who wants to use/maintain/fork it.

    I believe your method is incorrect. The line you are repairing is to determine if the loot is not coin. You are no longer doing so though by using LootSlot. Your method is now permanently enabling autoloot no matter what the situation is as LootSlot attempts to, well, loot that slot... which can never really fail (unless Master Looter is on).

    The correct fix would be to replace
    if (not LootSlotIsCoin (i)) then
    if (GetLootSlotType(i) == 1) then

    This restores default functionality and disables autoloot (unless you have it ticked in the interface menu). Now, as it was in the past you will need to exit the open loot window for autoloot to delete your items.

    Do as it is more convenient to you.

    Only phrase:

    Now, as it was in the past you will need to exit the open loot window for autoloot to delete your items.

    Already sets thinking that you not absolutely understand for what AUTO-LOOTFILTER is necessary. For Automatic removal instead of when we close a window, it then only deletes. NONSENSE!

    Всем привет. Кто столкнулся с проблемкой нерабочего Loot Filter в текущей версии 5.0.х

    в начале я выкладывал ссылку на готовый уже исправленный Лут Фильтр, но администрация не разрещает ссылки на сторонние как бы ресурсы, поэтому тупо пишу что куда и как!:

    Берем голову и две руки:

    1. Качаем этот Лут Фильтр и запихиваем к нам в аддоны.

    2. Открываем файл LootFilter.toc и меняем строку:
    ## Interface: 40000
    на эту
    ## Interface: 50001 

    3. Открываем этот файл lib/events.lua и меняем тут строку:

    if (not LootSlotIsCoin (i)) then    ----    74ая строка.
    на эту.
    if (not LootSlot (i)) then


    Теперь наш лут фильтр, обновлен до версий 5.0.х и у меня он работает нормально. Единственное, что пишет иной раз сообщение предмет занят, но это как то не мешаем ему все фильтровать))

    п.с. Все кому не лень, кому я помог постом напишите в ответе на этот пост слово (ok!).
