If you have a translation, please feel free to upload it on the Optional Files tab and send me a PM. Likewise if you have an update to one, please PM me.

F A Q
====================
Q. How do I post a Bug Report?
A. Go to www.wowinterface.com and search for 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.
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.
QuestGuru ChangeLog
===================

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. Added 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

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

Version 2.2.2

Could you do me a favor and put that request as a feature request? That will help me prioritize which features to put in.

Thank you,

I'd be happy to Beta any new releases as we use it quite often.

Yes, I will be. I have the beta access from the Diabo III release, but it currently isn't allowing me to put in Mods. But I'm still working on the Quest Watcher in the current expansion.

I have been pressed for time and haven't been able to devote hardly any time to this project lately, but things are looking up recently so I'll be getting back to it.

Grabbed questguru in order for my wife and I to quest with our kids, we were most interested in the QuestAnnouncer since they forget to pick up quests and it lets us track how much of what they have. I was playing with it enabled the other day and noticed it doesn't announce when a new quest is picked up, although the feature is on in the config. Is this something being addressed in the rewrite? Just curious because it would make this mod invaluable for us.

I guess i forgot to mention i'm using the latest version here and i was grouped. Thanks.

Hooray! No news IS good news in this case. I will do as you ask. Are you looking for Panderia beta testers?

Re: changing other colors in tracker?

Yes, QuestGuru is supported and currently stable.


I am working on a complete re-write of the Add-On currently and hope to have it out for Mists of Pandera expansion.

After that, I will consider tweaks to things such as you mentioned, but first, major functionality

Please submit a feature request on the buttons on the middle right of the page and that way I won't loose track of the request.

The new version will be QuestGuru 3 and I'm working on having it modular so you can enable just the parts you want.

Currently there are the Quest Log Enhancement (includes the announcer and sound options) and the Tracker (both quests and achievements). Quest Completist is a great Add-On that provides data about quests so QG dropped it's history function. I hope to return the QG history as an optional feature so you can keep the info for quests that you have seen for future reference - something that I really liked. I also plan on a Party feature so you can get the complete quest log info for members of your party (provided they also have the same addon).

Work on the addon however has been slow lately as work (real life type) got overpowering in the last couple of months taking away all my breathing space.

Thanks for asking and remember to post that feature request!

changing other colors in tracker?

Hi, Nice addon, thanks for things. I kinda perused the first few pages of this, but Im wondering if there is a way to change the colors of the headers and things from yellow to white, and to also put an outline on the texts for the tracker. XD Im not even sure if this is still maintained, there is a lack of discussion since the last update, i think. but no news is good news, it seems to work just fine.

@danawhitaker, brykrys, allogator

I updated the QGT_Quests to fix (hopefully permanently) the SetBindings error. The problem was that Blizz hadn't finished loading the KeyBindings despite VARIABLES_LOADED having been fired.

The logic of the setting of the Tracker Window Toggle was changed to not set if SHIFT-L was already used someplace or if the toggle keybinding was already set (to anything).

If the CurrentBindingSet was garbage, I set a three count timer for 1 second intervals and came back to it. If, after three tries, the CurrentBindingSet is still garbage, I quit.

I want to thank Dana for helping on this. She ran some diagnostics for me to help determine the exact problem.

I hope everyone had a Great Christmas and wish a Prosperous New Year to all.

Hi, there is no functional difference. It's simply a holdover from a previous version. It was changed to call Quest Completist before there was an Open QC button (provided by Quest Completist). I hope to put back in something like the old history window someday.

For a feature enhancement, please request it via the Features button on the right side of the Addon Info. tab.

Buttons?

Hi,

Whats the difference between the Open QC button & the History button?
They appear to both just open QC. Does one of these need removing or am i missing something?

Also, any chance of a future version remembering its position. Really frustrating having to reposition the quest log everytime i log in.

Many thanks for updating this

Re: Odd QuestGuru Tracker Issue

Originally Posted by danawhitaker
After 4.3, I started noticing a strange issue that I only last night narrowed down to QuestGuru. Specifically, it only occurs when I have QuestGuru Tracker enabled in the addons. Having just QuestGuru turned on doesn't cause the issue. Whenever I log into the game, on any character AFTER the FIRST character I log into that session, I am unable to move my character using the keyboard, or move the camera with the mouse. I cannot hit Enter to access the chatbox (I have to click on it manually). It's like I'm frozen in place. Doing a /reload makes the issue go away.

At first, I thought it was related to Auctioneer, and for a while I was just putting up with it. But last night I had to do a lot of logging in and out of various characters for Winter Veil stuff and it finally started getting on my nerves, so I started removing addons one by one to narrow it down. QuestGuru Tracker will make it happen both with other addons or when it's the only addon enabled. I updated to the latest version last night and the problem still occurred. I even completely removed the addon and reinstalled it, to no avail.

Edit: I noticed upon logging in that the reason I couldn't move or use the keyboard or mouse was because my keybindings weren't loading at all. Then I was looking at old updates for the addon, in the changelog, and I saw this: "* Fixed an issue in QGT_Quests.lua where SaveBindings sometimes received an invalid value because GetCurrentBindingSet() would return nil" - is it possible this issue is still occurring in some way?

Edit #2: I rolled back to the December 5th version of the QGT_Quests.lua file and while I do get an error message upon logging in, I'm able to move my character, the camera, and use all my other keybinds as normal.

So that's what it was? I just tolerated it because it only happened to me maybe every 5th time or so that I did it. However, My keybindings have been suspiciously wiped out twice. I thought I was going crazy. >_<

Thank you for taking the time to report the error, however there is not much I can do with the information posted. I can see where the error happened and the nature of the error. But there is no context to work with. What were you doing with this happened? Did you get the error more than once? Can you re-create the error? If so, how? Does it happen on more than one toon? Any other problems happening at the same time?

My guess is that the Keyboard problem is the same thing as the old SaveBindings error, probably something like:
For some reason the key bindings sometimes aren't loaded by the time QuestGuru tries to check its own keybinding.
At this point GetCurrentBindingSet doesn't return a valid 1 or 2, which caused the old error.
If QuestGuru carries on anyway, sets its own binding, and calls SaveBindings - it's going to save nil values to every other binding.
