QuestGuru  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.2.18-50400
by: Gregity, mrobrian
QuestGuru is a Quest Log enhancer.

Features include:
- Enhanced quest display in the log
- Built-in announcer with customizable messages
- Quest progress sounds
- Custom Tracker which can be used independantly of QuestGuru, or in conjunction for full functionality
- Localization ability. Submit yours!

**New & Updated Localizations
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
-------------
* 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
-----------
* Added quest levels to NPC dialogs where possible
* Added "Sound\\Creature\\Peasant\\PeasantWhat3.wav" to the list of sound options

Version 2.1

* Fixes for Cataclysm
* Special thanks to Dridzy and Cartman for their invaluable contributions

Version 2.0 Beta 1
------------------

* History is no longer stored on your computer but is retrieved from the server instead
* Removed some features that were causing problems and slimmed down the addon to reduce memory usage
* Upgraded to ChatThrottleLib v21

Cool QuestGuru comes to WoWInterface!

By popular demand, I will now be updating QuestGuru here, at WoWInterface as well as at WoWUI and Curse.

Thanks for posting this here - I'm new to this addon. Is there an option to increase the font size of the quest log? Text looks a bit small. Font tweaking in the tracker would be great also, to differentiate font size between the zone headers and quests inside each.

Regarding the tracker, is there an option to toggle tracking all quests or none? And any plans for a "zone detector" feature that displays or highlights quests in the zone you are in? This was a great feature in nquestlog.

Thanks!

getting larger..

Why is this getting larger with all the extra folders? 10 folders for quest history, one for the Log and one for the tracker...? Is this really necessary?
The old one did history and tracker with one folder. I run enough mods atm without having this become bloated.
If it is that you are just starting to take this over and don't know your way around lua, please learn it.

Please read the forums, look at other sites and look into the code before you make a comment. This way you would know (even without any Lua knowledge) that
1) MrOBrian is the original author.
2) The separate folders are there for convenience, so that those (including me) who don't use the history (or the tracker) can switch them off in the Addons menu.

Thanks.

And thank you MrOBrian for a great addon!

There is currently no option to change the font size in the quest log. As for the tracker, if you want to quickly track or untrack an entire section you can do so from the QuestGuru quest log window by clicking the check box next to the header name. In the future I might make the tracker auto-expand/collapse sections based on zone (optional, of course).

Firstly, I am the original author and I would say I know a fair bit about LUA coding as I have written the thousands of lines of code for this addon suite from scratch.

About the multiple folders: QuestGuru, QuestGuru_History and QuestGuru_Tracker are individual addons. History requires QG, but the tracker can be used independantly. The history is split into 10 folders so that the quest data is load on demand to reduce memory usage in game. This addon is not becoming bloated, I am trying to add features while reducing memory and CPU usage. Sometimes it's at the expense of extra folders in your Addons directory. Take a look around at other addons such as LightHeaded, MobMap, Cartographer, etc. and you will find many addons use a multiple directory system.

I dunno if this has been reported previously on Curse or other addon sites but there's an issue with this mod where if you track a quest with an associated quest item and then untrack it, the icon will remain on the screen. This only happens when it's the only quest left to be untracked. Just thought I'd mention that since I haven't seen anyone else say it.
The untracking of completed quests option also doesn't seem to work.

I'd also like to say this mod is gorgeous and I will be using this mod from now on

There is a bug with the quest item icons that causes a few different problems, like them staying on the screen when the tracker is not visible, them not scaling with the tracker, etc. This bug is fixed in the next version. I am also working to fix various auto-track and auto-untrack problems brought on by Blizzard's changes to their WatchFrame. I think I almost have it working correctly again.

Yeah that's the bug I was talking about. Thanks for continuing to support this mod

You are the man. I love this addon, but was sad about it knocking out achievement tracking. Thanks for fixing it so fast, yay QuestGuru!

My only future suggestion: Have some way to hide the tracker without having to go into the interface options to disable it.

I didn't see this posted anywhere else, and I apologize if I missed it. There's a bug with Questguru, likely with the history code, where if you attempt to do one of the quick turn in quests(The cloth donations, or the SoH rep turn in) that QuestGuru won't allow you to finish the quest and gives the following error:

...rface\AddOns\QuestGuru_History\QuestGuru_History.lua:503:bad argument #1 to 'find' (string expected, got nil)

I have to disable QuestGuru in order to turn in any quest with an immediate turn in like this.
