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
-----------
* Removed the History, I recommend using Quest Completist
* Fixes for Cataclysm
* Special thanks to Dridzy and Cartman for their invaluable contributions

Version 2.0 Beta 2
------------------

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

Everything runs great.. except.. How do I make it auto track? When I add quests they don't show up unless I go into quest log and check mark it.

I guess I need to add this one to the FAQ... Go into the options for the GAME, not QuestGuru, under Objectives there are options to auto track quests. I do not have these options as part of QuestGuru because they would have to be in both the main module and the tracker, and all they would do is change the game options, which could be problematic, especially with how often Blizzard likes to change things.

suggestion

I love your addon, but i have a suggestion is there anyway you could add that if your tracking a achievement that if its part of a series (i.e cooking recipes, quest completed) that it automatically starts tracking the next in the series? thanks in advance whether or not it gets added

If you could do me a BIG favor, when your quest log looks like that type "/script ExpandQuestHeader(0)" and see if that fixes it. You might have to close and open the window again, or scroll the list or something to get it to update.
I created this screenshot with alll of my Addons installed. That might be why there are two 'X' buttons. I will try what you are requesting and see what that does. If it fails, I will remove all add-ons and try again.

I am running Questhelper, Tourguide (This has been removed), RepeatableQuestHelper and Questguru. These are the add-ons that may be interfacing with the Quest log.

I will test it this evening after the servers are back online.

Sorry I didn't get to this last night.
I did the following before I tested it.

All addons removed except for QuestGuru.
AllAccounts removed
Cache deleted

I loaded WOW and brought up my char. The double 'X' was gone. Had to have been another add-on.

The quests still said 0.

I did as you said: /script ExpandQuestHeader(0)

All the quests are back again.

Thank you,

Guess we will have an update in a few days. This was a hard one to debug when it doesn't happen to you.

Let me know what else I can do. I am going to restore all my add-ons and accounts. If it doesn't work I will let you know.

Again, try collapsing any headers with quest icons and see if this problem goes away. Blizzard made a change that could cause high CPU usage, low frame rate, and high memory use when those icons show up. The next version of QuestGuru should fix this.
The massive memory consumption is definitely related to the display of the icons for quest items.

Tracking the "Got My Mind On My Money" achievement, there is no problem. Immediately swapping to the quest tracker that has, for example, the full set of Argent Tournament dailies produces memory usage of up to 40MB. Swapping back to achievement tracking stops it.

Also, the behaviour is not there if there are no quest item icons. It appears as if it would happily chew memory forever if a garbage collection didn't automatically occur at fixed intervals. That's why it jumps up and down.

AHHHH! Damn I knew I forgot something. I did a reinstall and didn't remember what all I had set. It wasn't turned on, hence why it wasn't working LOL. Sorry

On the brighter side, I love this addon!

Thumbs up Version 1.2 released!

New Version! QuestGuru 1.2 should fix the most common bugs and problems people are running into, such as achievement errors on login, tracker memory problems, and hopefully the (0) quests problem.

This version also adds a Daily tab which will track daily quests and show you the last date that you completed them. This only works for dailies completed after upgrading to 1.2. Over time, the Daily tab will be expanded to have more features, so feel free to give me feedback on it and offer suggestions.

One question I've been meaning to ask, but keep forgetting about. I like the idea of having an Achievement tab in the tracker to track achievements as they "start", but I'm curious to know if there is a way to untrack them from the QG tracker itself. Instead of having to weed through tons of other achievements in the same category to find the one specific achievement in the Achievement UI to manually untrack. If it is not currently part of the functionality of the mod, would it be possible to add this as a future function?

Thanks for such a great mod, keep up the good work.

There are two ways to more easily untrack an achievement:

1. Click the title of the achievement in the tracker to go directly to that achievement in the achievement UI, then untrack from there.

2. Shift-Click the title of the achievement in the tracker to instantly untrack it.

The LightHeaded window still doesn't "attach" correctly. Have to keep it detached for it to display. "/lh detach"

This only happens when using QuestGuru.
