Better Battle Pet Tooltip  Updated less than 3 days ago!
Version: 5.4.7.55
by: Phanx [More]
Adds your highest collected level and best collected quality to battle pet tooltips.
Zeigt im Kampfhaustieren-Tooltips die höchste Stufe und Qualität, die Ihr habt gefangen.
Mostrar el mayor nivel y calidad de las mascotas de combate capturadas en las descripciones.
Afficher le plus haut niveau et qualité des mascottes de combat capturées dans les infobulles.
Mostrare il più alto livello e qualità dei mascotti da combattimento catturati nelle descrizioni.
Mostrar o mais alto nível e qualidade dos mascotes de batalha capturados nas dicas.
Показать высокий уровень и качество, которое вы поймали, во всплывающих подсказках для боевых питомцев.

It works with unit tooltips for wild battle pets, item tooltips for caged battle pets and items that teach battle pets, and minimap tracking tooltips.

The default "Collected (1/3)" text is changed to "Collected (Level 25)", to indicate the level of your collected pet, and both the text and the tooltip border are colored by the rarity of your collected pet.

Colorblind users will be shown the rarity name (eg. "Rare") at the end of the info line, and the text won't be colored.

For wild pets you have already fought, but forfeited out of the battle, the tooltip for that pet will show its quality. This can be helpful for pets that travel in groups, so you can easily see which ones you haven't checked for quality yet. Please note that this only works for unit tooltips (not minimap tracking tooltips) and only for that individual pet (not others of the same type). This information is not saved between login sessions or UI reloads.

Options

Type /bbpt to open the options panel, or browse to it in the game’s Interface Options window.

I guess I can add an option...

If you have already collected the pet, the color indicates the highest quality you've collected. Otherwise, it indicates the quality of the tooltip's pet, if known. It does sound a bit inconsistent written out that way... I guess it should just always show the tooltip's pet quality, maybe just highlighting (eg. with the same orange used for the "not collected" text) if it's an upgrade. I'm open to suggestions.

Oops. Had a typo in the item ID for that one. Fixed soon.

I understand that config bloat isn't something one should aim for. However in my tooltip style (plain simple black outer glow), this messes up my "feeling" quite a bit. Also the reason why which color is used is not quite obvious:
Edit: I am using TipTac, in case that matters

Could you please add a configurable option to disabling coloring the tooltip's border?

Thanks. I'll get an update out soon with all the new 5.3 pet items. I wish Blizzard would just expose the internal API they use to figure out which items teach which pets; I know they have one, because they use it to add the collected info to the item tooltip.

Those messages are there for a reason -- they indicate that the tooltip is showing an item that teaches a pet, but the addon is missing data about which pet the item teaches. Please post the full text of the message so I can add the missing data.

If you are actually seeing this message printed when you mouse over a wild pet unit -- not an item -- please report back with which language you play WoW in, whether the same pet triggers the same message when all other addons are disabled, and a screenshot of the tooltip. The only way this should be able to happen is if Blizzard or another addon is adding a "Not Collected" line to the tooltip for a unit that isn't actually capturable.

Also, you should not be able to get "a ton" of these messages, as there is a check in place to only warn about each missing species once per session, so you should never see more than one message about each type of pet.

Missing pet string for Swamp Croaker

I've actually been getting a ton of "missing pet string" messages for weeks now and they get extremely annoying after a while. Until now, I couldn't find anything to pinpoint which addon the messages were coming from - even Google turned up nothing. You must have changed something, because FINALLY it's saying "BetterBattlePetTooltip:" in front of it so I could report this. Any way to turn these messages off? It happens CONSTANTLY with all kinds of common wild pets - pets I don't need, no less, since I have all the wild pets except the Summer one. Thanks.

Very nice addon. Thank you!

However, I am getting the following error: Missing pet string for Heavy Murloc Egg

I am assuming since this pet is extremely rare this was overlooked. I just happened to go to BlizzCon 2009.

There are already addons that add that info to the tooltip; they should be compatible with BBPT. If the one you want to use isn't compatible, post a link and I'll look at it next week; I'm AFK for the weekend.
