CharacterInfo  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.1.20113
by: wmrojer [More]
New beta version available at http://files.wowace.com/CharacterInfo/ and http://files.wowace.com/CharacterInfoStorage/ (You need both files)

-- Short Description
Shows inventory of all your characters. (Equpped items, bags contents and bank contents)

-- Long Description
CharacterInfo is made up of two modules. CharacterInfoStorage and CharacterInfo

CharacterInfoStorage handles storing all the items so you can access it from all your charactes and is loaded all the time.

CharacterInfo is the module that shows the information to you and it is loaded on demand when you first open the window. (So it doesn't use any memory until you need it)

The window is opend with /cis menu or by binding a key to it in the keybidning interface.

CharacterInfoStorage is required for CharacterInfo to work. CharacterInfoStorage will load CharacterInfo when you open the window.

It shows a simplified character screen with two buttons to toggle the bags and bank windows.
Currently it only shows your character name, class, level and your items. If I get the time i will make it show more stats like attack power, health, mana, factions, guild....

--History
I wrote this addon because I got upset about how CharactersViewer has evolved. The latest version of CharactersViewer that uses rpgoCharacterProfiler is using massive amounts of memory (close to 10MB). CharacterInfoStorage uses around 130KB with 8 characters plus about 600KB for the graphic interface (that is load on demand).
CharacterInfo shows the inventory/bags and bank content for all your characters on the same realm.


-- Release notes
0.1.20113
Changed options for RegisterChatCommand again. If this fixes it, it's definetly an Ace2 bug.

0.1.19875
Added 'handler' to RegisterChatCommand options. Lets see if it works for those that have problem using /cis menu.

0.1.19803
Now stores the first 7 numbers of the itemString instead of only 3.
Upgrades old data so it is displayed correctly.
This should fix so the 'flavor' of items are shown correctly again.
(Blizzard didn't change the itemstring in a way that is compatible, instead they added the new information in the middle.....)

0.1.19718
Fixed item links.

0.1.19419
Updated to account for changed bank size and changed bank bag slotid's.

0.1.19166
Updated for WoW 2.0
Optional Files (0)

Suggestion

Any chance you can take a look at another addon called possessions and maybe add some of possesions features to your addon. One of the best things about possessions is that I can type "/poss mooncloth" for example and it will tell me how many mooncloth I have and break it down by how much each toon has in bank, inventory, ect...

So if you had this functionality it would work like /cis mooncloth and do the same thing. Personally I would much rather see a list of items that i can sort with a small icon and the name of the item next to it than a window of icons that i have to mouse over to see what it is.

anyways if you could offer that then i will gladly drop possessions. In the mean time I will check out your new addon and just want to say thanks and keep up the good work I am already a big fan of your other addon Trade Skill Info

@Fred:
I have no idea what Serenity is. What information should I show from this addon i FuBar??

@askjosh:
I have never seen possessions, but the think you ask for is more or less there. The tooltip of TradeskillInfo will show how many of that item you have banked, and how many you have on your alts. (Requires both TradeskillInfo and CharacterInfo installed)

CharacterInfo is very crude at it's current state, but it does what I used CharactersViewer for, and with alot less memory. (I mainly check what gear my other chars have when I loot something to see if anyone of them can use it)

RE: Possessions Mod

Possessions does alot more than just tell you how much of an item you have on you, on your alts, in the bank ect. it also displays your inventory in a very easy to read table like this below.

Icon Mooncloth 26
Icon Runecloth Bandage 200
Icon Dark Iron Ore 38
Icon Some Armor 1

you can see a picture of it and a discription of what it does at ui.*************** by clicking on the this link. http://ui.***************/ui.php?id=1013

If anything I would at least ask that you check it out, and maybe it might give you some ideas that could help to improve your addon. I am asking because possessions is no longer being developed and I think that with the next patch it may stop working.

For me the main reason I like possessions is that it allows me to quickly and easily search for an item that any of my characters may have in their bags, bank, mail or equiped, all by simply typing /poss runecloth or /poss Arcanist or /poss Dark Iron ect.... once i type /poss name of item then it will return a window with a list of all items that partially or completely match the search. I can then quickly see the totall amount that i have and when i mouse over an item in the window it tells me how many i have on each of my toons.

icons are great an all but some times when ya have so many bags open its hard to find exactly what you are looking for and thats why I like possesions soo much.

thank you for reading this and checking out the other addon, I would love to see a search function and maybe a different way to view my bags than just a bunch of icons.

It already is.
Drag using the titlebar of the character window, the bags and bank windows move with the character window.

Re: RE: Possessions Mod

@askjosh:
I looked at Possesion and it is possible to add that functionality to CharactersInfo. But if and when I will have the time to do it I can't say.

Did you look at the information that TradeskillInfo can add to the tooltip with CharactersInfo installed? Shows how many of the item you have banked, and how many of the item your alts have. CharacterInfo dosen't currently support mail thou.

@wmrojer

would you consider to add a fubar support wich just a toggle to show & hide the CharacterInfo frame.
(that might be what fred asked about also /shrug)

That would make it more simple to players that never can remember the /slash commands.

Regards,

Thanks for taking a look at possesions.

Quote [Did you look at the information that TradeskillInfo can add to the tooltip with CharactersInfo installed? Shows how many of the item you have banked, and how many of the item your alts have. CharacterInfo dosen't currently support mail thou.]

That is very usefull when I am checking to see what characters have what mats for a specific craft that I am looking up in TradeskillInfo, but if I want to look up say how many AD rep turn in items i have or what pieces of of tier 1 gear my hunter has it would still be easier to just type /CI [name of item to search] and see the results in a list.

Now when or if you have time to add that functionality, I would totally love it :-)
Until then keep up the great work you've been doing on this wonderful addon

Expand equipment info

I love this mod. I have been looking for something to do just this function with a little less overhead than charactersviewer.

I am having one problem maybe someone can help me with. When ever I select one of my alts and look at a piece of equipment that can come in multi versions, ie headbangers helm .. of the monkey, of the eagle, of the boar, etc, it is only showing Headbangers Helm. It is not showing any of the individual stats just the armor rating. If it is a piece of armor / weapon that only comes in one "flavor" it shows the complete information, stats and all.

Any ideas ??

Thanks

Another vote here for Possessions-like inventory tracking & searching, wmrojer.

The "updated" Possessions 2.0.2 is still broken (it doesn't convert old inventories and doesn't work at all). So if mult-character inventory search by keyword as well as mailbox sent-to & mailbox contents tracking could be added to CharacterInfo, I'd be indebted to you forever (or something) . So would many other people, I'm sure.

Sanity2 (Possessions alternative off the SVN) appears to work fine, so far at least. But it doesn't have the critical mail sent-to tracking that Possessions had. Meaning if you mail an item to an alt, it appears to be missing from your inventory until you open the mailbox on the alt and view it. Which isn't good enough. So hoping you can add such tracking to this .

CIS and Fubar

Hello,

For some reason, when I have CIS and Fubar(main addon, not plugins) enabled at the same time, the command /cis menu fails to work. I get no response at all when I hit enter, chat bar dosn't even register that I hit enter. Love this Mod, hope you can update it to work with Fubar.

I did a phased disable, until I discovered which addon was conflicting with CIS.

Same here. Here's the error:

Interface/FrameXML/ChatFrame.lua: 3008: AceConsole-2.0: AceConsole-2.0: Option handler "TogglerUI" not found.

To me it sounds like there is a faulty version of Ace2 going around. I've tried the addon with Ace2 revision 19563 and 19765 and it works with both. Since I can't reproduce the error it would be nice if you guys could figure out what revision of Ace2 you have going when you get the error.

CharacterInfo is compatible with FuBar. The only thing they have in common is the use of Ace2, so if CharacterInfo isn't working with FuBar loaded it's probably something with the revision of Ace2 included in FuBar.

Personaly I run standalone librarys to avoid these kind of things, I know it's a bit more work to keep all the librarys updated, but it pays of if you can avoid these kind of problems.

Hi,
Since your the expert and I can't find my you know what with both hands when it comes to mods could you please explain how to setup "standalone librarys"? I love FuBar and Ace mods... I use a ton of them. Recently with all the mods being updated there have been several issues where one mod had an older version of a lib which conflited with another. I noticed that every single FuBar mod comes with its own lib directory so I assume you mean I could delete all of them and just have one lib directory somewhere that contained all the most current libs right? I thought that would be in the main FuBar/lib directory but I noticed that it doesn't contain many of the same libs that are in the lib directory of the mods themselves.

Anywho... any instruction you can give on making all this perform better would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and Merry Christmas,
Twidget
