About MonkeyQuest:

  • Clicking on quests brings up the real quest log with that quest selected.
  • Displays the quest level in the quest title.
  • Elite quests display a ' ' in the level of the quest.
  • Completed quests show a '(Completed)' in the quest title.
  • Quest area headers are displayed.
  • Clicking on a quest area header collapses or expands it.

  • Check box to toggle displaying collapsed quest area headers and hidden quests.
  • Close and minimize buttons.
  • Quest objective coloring.
  • Quest objective coloring for special 'friendly/hostile' type objectives.
  • Special quest objective coloring for 'find an area' type objectives.
  • Nice font for increased readability.
  • No additional buttons or options are displayed in the real quest log.
  • Option to always hide quest area headers.
  • New slash command for hiding the border.
  • Key bindings for toggle hidden, minimize, and close.
  • Slash command to change the expand direction, up or down (thanks Diungo)

  • Shift-right clicking on quests to add your current quest objective data to the chat edit box if it's open.
  • Option to display the number of free quest slots.

  • Quest Items now show up in tooltips. Mousing over targets you need for quests will show 'Quest Item XX/YY' in the tooltip. Same for items you need for quests.

    (** Currently doesn't update if MonkeyQuest is closed or minimized **)

  • Dungeon quests display a 'd' in the level of the quest.
  • Raid quests display an 'r' in the level of the quest.
  • Party members show up in the quest overview tooltip. If they have that quest they'll be displayed in the 100% objective color.

    Love it, but kinda miss the feature that i can make a profile so i dont need to set up settings on all my characters 1 at a time, would be nice with the way some other addons do with loading a profile or something like that

  • #1089

    Another request, make the quest item icons bigger, maybe?

  • #1087

    Is there any way to be able to select the quest that is waypointed without having to go to the map?

  • #1086

    Is there any way you could add a feature to completely hide the Blizzard Objectives frame? I ask because, yes, I could simply untrack them all, but I use TomTom arrows for quest objectives and since TomQuest2 is supposidly abandoned (And I actually prefer your addon to it) and had that feature built in, it'd really make my life a LOT nicer if there were some way you could add it.

    Great addon! Thanks for all the work.

  • #1088

    I used MoveAnything to disable the Bliz objectives window. Worked fine.

  • #1085

    is there a way to disable the more work sound
    atm I am reciving it when ever i push a button which is quite annoying, I do however like the addon
    and the sound would be fine if it was when questlog was opened but for every single button on my keyboard or mouse that drives me crazy :) 

  • #1082

    Thanks for letting me know about this API change.
    EU Realms are not patched yet, so I haven't noticed ;-).
    I already uploaded a fixed version, should be available soon!

  • #1083

    Until then...

    World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\MonkeyQuest\MonkeyQuestInit.lua

    Change line 15:

    MonkeyQuest.m_strPlayer =  GetCVar("realmName").."|"..MonkeyQuest.m_strPlayer;


    MonkeyQuest.m_strPlayer = GetRealmName().."|"..MonkeyQuest.m_strPlayer;

  • #1077

    Just an FYI, getCVar("realmname" is gone, use GetRealmName(), forget which .lua/line number but just search for that.  Fixes the problem.

  • #1080

    In the MonkeyQuestInit.lua (right-click and Edit with notepad), look for line that says this:

        -- add the realm to the "player's name" for the config settings
        MonkeyQuest.m_strPlayer = getCVar("realmname").."|"..MonkeyQuest.m_strPlayer;

    Change getCVar("realmname") to GetRealmName() and it should look like this:

        -- add the realm to the "player's name" for the config settings
        MonkeyQuest.m_strPlayer = GetRealmName().."|"..MonkeyQuest.m_strPlayer;

    It does work. Thank you Cathmor for pointing the fix out.

    I personally can't play without MonkeyQuest.

  • #1081

    This fixed it, thank you!

    How is this helpful? if it's missing a line, how does one search for it, especailly when you don't say which of the .lua's it's in..

    1. Someone has posted it.

    2. you can search for text within files within a select folder, it's not hard.

    3. WoW will tell you what line/file is broken.  I had already fixed it and closed the file by the time I thought about posting this.  

  • #1075

    I would love to see the confirmation dialog box to abandon a quest removed, or have it auto confirm.

  • #1074

    This has always been my all-time favorite quest tracker addon for years. I'm so glad to see it being supported again.

    However, I'm still hoping to get Achievement tracking supported as well in MQ... get on it, dev!
