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)

The width of the windows is hardcoded to a max. of 8 items per line (You could only change that in the CharacterInfo.lua-code itself, if You know what You're doing ) - but there's an option to scale down the whole display of CharacterInfo. Type "/cis" in-game and look for an option named "framescale" or something similar.

This is a wonderful addon. I've had it for longer than I can remember actually. I too used CharacterViewer and had the same issues with it. Glad you decided to make this.

As the game has progressed my bags have gained more and more storage capacity. When I open up my bank to view what's in there it's running off my screen. Is there a way to resort the display of my bank bags so they are drawn further across and less deep? Or perhaps a way to turn off certain bags?

Either way, it's still the best thing out there that I've come across so thanks again!

You need to pick up "CharacterInfo" not CharacterInfoFu (unless you want it for your FuBar)

Question Confused

I just downloaded Characterinfostorage and picked up CharacterinfoFU, for fubar. Was hoping someone here could help me. When I click the little icon, i get this response

Character Info Storage -Ace2-: Could not load the UI. Reason: MISSING

I'm new to all the addon stuff so not sure what it means. Thanks now for any help you can offer.

Is it possible to make this addon capable of allowing guild members to the stored info?

Wait. It IS borked. Well it was. what i had to do to fix it was delete my characterinfo and tradeskillinfo files from WTF. They had broken somehow with the version switch.

On that subject. /cis purge doesnt seem to do anything. I dont get any feedback.

Total ACE Noob here - Can't get CharacterInfo to work

Hi. I'm a total noob to ACE. I used to use Charaterviewer and was really disapointed when it stopped being supported. Then I found this addon and it looks like what I've been looking for.

Problem is, I can't get it to run. When I load the add on through Khaos, I get a bunch of errors. Most are variations of "attempt to index golbal "characterinfo" (a nil value)" and there is one that says "Can not find a library instance of Abacus-2.0". I have both CharacterInfo and CharacterInfoStorage in my addons folder. Is there a core for ACE that all ACE addons require? Am I missing something?

(Yes, I realize CIS costs quite a bit more - but with 4 bank alts, a tailor/engineer, an enchanter/blacksmith, a leatherworker, and a jewelcrafter, it's difficult to remember where to send various things. You know, the 'I have 3 heavy leather from a trunk. Do I have a partial stack on either the tailor/engineer or the leatherworker, who can use it, or do send it to a bank alt? Which bank alt has a partial stack in which it can fit?')

(For what it's worth, the memory issue being restricted to my main isn't as much due to my main using more memory, but rather my main sees more intensive content, and it matters more - if my 32 druid takes 15 seconds out due to garbage collection during a solo combat and dies, it costs me maybe 20-30s. If my 70 mage takes 15 seconds out due to garbage collection, and we wipe as a result, it costs me 1.5g, and four other people some amount ranging from 1g to 4g based on armor type and quality - usually around 10-12g total. I fully expect to get to the point where I have the GUI disabled on 4 of my 8 toons.)
Actually, the tooltips isn't part of CIS. They are a part of TradeskillInfo.

Problem in count

First I want to tell you what a great addon you made.

I download your mod on Wowace and since a recent update, counting function since to behave strangely.

It counts stacks instead of units, either banked or alts items.

As you can see, i have 129 dream dusts (the pink ones) but it counts 7 (6 stacks of 20 + 1 stack of 9)



I was wandering if this was intentional. If it is could you make an option to choose between stack or unit count?

Best regards.

Edit: I saw you fixed it right away. My god your fast. Thanks a lot. You really have superior quality Addons (Reczone, Tradesillinfo, CharacterInfo, etc.) Keep it up!
