About QuestGuru

QuestGuru is a Quest Log enhancer.

Features include:

  • Enhanced quest display in the log
  • Patch 6.0 broke QuestGuru, so this is a completely different monster
  • Conforms to the WOD map quest log (Tooltips for quests and icons showing quest status)
  • Added full time quest level in front of quest name

For those who are missing the Quest Tracker of QuestGuru, try Sorha Quest Log
I have been using it for a little while and is not half bad :)

TO-DO's:

  • Will try and revamp the quest tracker as I love it also. But wanted to get the Log out ASAP.
  • Try to bring back the other features of the old QuestGuru (Sounds, announcements, etc.)

F A Q

==============

Q. How do I post a Bug Report?

  • A1 - Click on QuestGuru Go to the AddOn and on the right side there is a selection called "Bugs" click on that. You will need to be signed in to WoW Interface to create a bug report.
  • A2 - Or file a ticket on QuestGuru@CurseForge
  • Note:
  • Please include the version of QuestGuru you are using and copy/paste the error message you receive.
  • Please describe what you were doing when the error happened. This will help tremendously.

Q. How do I turn on auto-tracking of quests?

  • A - Look in the options for the game itself, not QuestGuru. Under Objectives there are options to set when to track quests.
  • QuestGuru does not duplicate these settings in its own options as it could become problematic and it is not necessary to
    duplicate options already available.

Q. Where can I find a version compatible with WoW patch x?

  • A. QuestGuru is supported for the current Expansion and Patch level running on the live servers. PTR versions may be supported as Alpha or Beta releases, but I offer no guarantee.

NEW

SOUND OPTIONS:
Default sound set is now the old QuestGuru set (as requested by many)
/qgs set <soundsetname>
Sets the sound set and plays its quest completion sound
/qgs set
Lists the known sound set names
/qgs test <quest or objective or part>
Plays the current 'quest', 'objective' or 'part' completion sound
/qgs message <objectives or completion or none>

QuestGuru ChangeLog
===================

Version 2.3.11
---------------
Defult sound set is the original QuestGuru set from the past. /QGS for changes

Version 2.3.10
---------------
Fixed some spelling errors and got header collapse working again. Update TOC for 6.1

Version 2.3.09
---------------
Sound configuration added. /QGS and /QGS SET - for options

Version 2.3.08
---------------
Finally got the sounds working. Horde has peon sounds and ally has peasant sounds. Objective progress, objective complete and quest complete.

Version 2.3.07b
---------------
Brought things back to pre-2.3.07 except for the additions of tracker files, but those are disabled until I get them re-worked.

Version 2.3.07a
---------------
Made some revisions

Version 2.3.07
-------------
Some fixes, some additions. Working hard on tracker part

Version 2.3.06
-------------
Reports of problems came in.
Went thru with fine toothed comb and got them beggars outta here.

Version 2.3.04
-------------
Changed versioning numbers (got rid of -6000). Repaired some minor bugs, introduced QuestGuru's version number and player's name, level and class to title bar  :) Added sound to collapsing and expanding quest zone / type headers.

Version 2.3.02-60000
-------------
Found corruption in zip file, fixed and uploaded tested and working copy

Version 2.3.01-60000
-------------
Massive rework of the QuestGuru code. Right now the tracker is not working :(

Version 2.2.18-50400
-------------
QuestGuru
  (no changes)
QuestGuru_Tracker
* Normalizing the version numbers between QuestGuru & QuestGuru_Tracker to the same value.  This will be the main change log henceforth.
* fix Achievement to ignore update events that happen during portals (between leaving and entering world events)
  The update event would fire, but Blizzard was reporting no achievements during that time so the QGT would
  "UnTrack" the Achievements and so there would be none when the display tried to update (and therefore currLine was zero and j was nil)
* Look at the oldChangeLog in QuestGuru_Tracker for older updates to the tracker

Version 2.2.17-50400 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Changing the Version number so Curse will see that it's different

Version 1.5.16-50400 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* fix QGT_Achievement.lua to handle Blizzard not returning an integer value on the slider

Version 2.2.16-50400 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Removed a bit of diagnostic code accidently left in.

Version 2.2.15-50400 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Change logic around QuestLog_OnShow to use secure hook functions to resolve
  a taint issue introduced by patch 5.4.1 (Shame on you Blizzard).

Version 2.2.14-50400 (QuestGuru)
Version 1.5.15-50400 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* TOC change for patch 5.4

Version 2.2.14-50300 (QuestGuru)
Version 1.5.15-50300 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* TOC change for patch 5.3
* Fixed a problem in QGT_Achievements that caused the Tracker to fail (Tracker)
* Big thanks to CMTitan who provided code to handle Scenarios that came out with MoP (Tracker)

Version 2.2.13-50001 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Added a new sound option to announce (Thank you Drizt)
* Added a snippet of code to fix a rare QuestLog layout problem.  Drizt ran into this again in MoP & kindly shared his fix for the issue.
* Fixed a few more places where party handling was changed in MoP/Patch 5.0.4.
* Changed the Debug message for the objectives not returning data to be sensitive to the debug setting.

Version 1.5.14-50001 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* Fixed another place where party handling was changed in MoP/Patch 5.0.4.

Version 2.2.12-50001 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Blizzard API GetQuestLogLeaderBoard is failing to return information for the identified objective & quest on some quests.
    I changed the code to look for no information return and simply bypass processing for that objective after dumping some info into the chatlog.
    I've added a slashcommand to invoke the routine at will:  "/qg testui1"
    For me, it's failing on "Shadow Wardens" and perhaps that's because the world tree marks are currency, not "items".
    If the quest is an event quest (get 150 marks) then the type of quest should be event and the numObjectives should be zero.

Version 2.2.11-50001 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Error being reported by some @ line 410 of QuestGuru.lua some diagnostic code when text == nil

Version 2.2.10-50001 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Removed some leftover diagnostic messages

Version 1.5.13-50001 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* Fixed a problem with the Achievement Tracking

Version 2.2.9-50001  (QuestGuru)
Version 1.5.12-50001 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* Both - Updated several items for compatability with Mists of Panderia (Patch 5.0.x)

Version 2.2.7-40300  (QuestGuru)
Version 1.5.10-40300 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* Latest revision of the Russian localization now incorporated.  Thank you again StingerSoft!
* Removed some unused code. Frame "QG_QuestLogTitleMenu"
* Fixed the SetBindings problem that would cause all bindings to occassionally get lost.

Version 2.2.6-40300 (QuestGuru)
Version 1.5.9-40300 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* Made several localization changes.  Enabled $substitution variables in announcer to be localized as well.
* Incorporated a brand new localization for Chinese(zhCN).  Credit to Honooon with many thanks.
* Incorporated an updated localization for Russian(ruRU).  Credit to StingerSoft with many thanks also.
* Updated all of the localizations (even the new ones) to synchronize variable names
*   I based the updates upon the default (American) localization file.
*   I removed variables that were no longer in the base localization file (most moved to the QuestGuru_Tracer localization)
*     and added missing variables (in American)
* We now have localizations for German, French, Russian, and Chinese (zhCN & zhTW).
* I would really appreciate it if speakers of those languages sent me updates to them.  
*   There are some new variables in the localizations that need translation!

Version 2.2.5-40300
-------------
* The History button call to QuestCompletist has been fixed.

Version 2.2.4a-40300
-------------
* Refixed an issue in QuestGuru_Tracker\QGT_Quests.lua where SaveBindings sometimes received an invalid value because GetCurrentBindingSet() would return other than nil, 1, or 2.

Version 2.2.4-40300
-------------
* Fixed the TOC for 4.3 cata
* MrObrien has asked that somebody pickup and work on the QuestGuru so I will try and do some updates as I can't play without this mod.
  Addon home is www.wowinterface.com and you can PM me there if you like.  Gregity is the name.
  I will be making small changes to get used to the codebase before I try anything like a major update.
* Fixed an issue in QuestGuru_Tracker/QGT_Quests.lua where SaveBindings sometimes received an invalid value because GetCurrentBindingSet() would return nil
* No other new information has been added (yet).

Version 2.2.3
-------------
* Fixes for when scrolling the quest log
* The quest log frame will now remember where it was when moved

Version 2.2.2
-------------
* Tracker achievement bug fixes and flashing for completed remote quests

Version 2.2.1
-------------
* Tracker bug fix that was causing game crashes

Version 2.2
-----------

    That addon is not mine to update. I used to love it also but the author stopped updating it. I use the addon called Skillet now. Great replacement for ATSW.

  • #186

    Thank you for that with that name i would never have found it lol.

  • #183

    If you could take a look at advanced trade skill window and do something like that i would love you for ever and ever lol dont be scared i wont stalk you lmao but i love that thing so much and no one has updated it in so long it wont work right but when i really want to see whats going on with my professions thats what i look at then have to turn it off to make the stuff its a really great addon that died.

    I just looks like yours so much i bet you could work it out .. anyway its my hope ty for reading.

  • #181

    Not sure if this is obvious but how do i turn the completion sounds off?

  • #182

    You can do this either by /qgs message none or /qgs set quiet

    Cheers

    Quote from baconsausage

    is this addon ever gonna be the same again?

    Nope, it will never be the same. Hoping to make it better. The original sounds are back. The Quest Log is better with more information than before. The tracker is a work-in-progress.

    Well by the looks of it either galin or tacoeaters (which could be the same person) now has a new screen name of "baconsasuage" and wants to keep being an idiot. So any and all posts from "them" are going to be reported and tagged as spam until them finally get banned from Curse.com, which I hope is very soon. (I "quoted" him above so people knew what I as talking about.)

    Cheers

    Reverted Default sound set to old QuestGuru one as per requests. Can still be changed via the /QGS commands.

    Cheers!

  • #171

    Not a big deal but when I logged on with an Alliance character I had the Peon sounds defaulted.  I hadn't logged on to any horde toons before that either.

  • #172

    I have the same error.

  • #173

    Peon is actually the default sound set. I was trying to have it change to peasant as default for Alliance but hit a brick wall. Type in /QGS set peasant   to get the Alliance sound set.

    Cheers

  • #168

    when is the tracker gonna come out?

  • #169

    Yes please, harrass me some more. There is already a ticket out on you and Tacoeaters. keep it up

  • #175

    ignore ppl like this, so much impatience in the world these days :(

    keep up with the good work, love this addon and was sad when it stopped working with WoD (I love to hear the sounds when questing!).
    I know how much pain it can be with programming, you find a single bug, try to fix it, and cause 23 more to pop up >.<

    as a suggestion btw, as I've read somewhere in the comments that you wanted to make the alliance have diff default sounds, perhaps make the default sound as the old classic QG sounds? then ppl can obv change it to their faction choice instead if they desire :)

  • #166

    Sound is working great for me! Thanks! Just "/qgs set guru" and away I go. Almost back to normal now :-)
