LootAlert  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 23
by: kergoth [More]

LootAlert displays your loot (money & item) messages in a scrolling text addon (sct, fct, msbt, ..). For money, it can show in 3 formats, whichever you choose. For items, it shows how many you looted and how many you now have, in total, in your inventory. It can color the item by rarity, show an item icon, and so on. It can reformat chat loot messages to use its formatting as well, for consistency. It does not yet show party members or raid member looting.

23:
- Add ruRU translation, courtesy StingerSoft
22:
- Fix error at login seen when HideLooted is not installed
21.1:
- Fix Interface version
21:
- Add release notes for version 21
- Add support for the HideLooted addon's filtering
- Default to LibSink's prioritized default sink, rather than UIErrorsFrame
- Fix for changes in recent versions of WoW
- Update to the latest versions of the embedded libraries
- Bump .toc Version
- Fix filesystem case issues.
- Add deDE translation, courtesy DoofDilla.
20:
- Switch the gold/silver/copper global string usage for 2.4.2.
19:
- Fix the options.lua error.
18:
- Kill AceDBOptions lib, since I'm not using it.
- Kill some debug code, since I'll be handling that elsewhere.
- Code reorganization.
- Fix bug reported by mindleglalaxy.. I wasn't handling the itemlink/itemstring properly. Fixed by ensuring we always grab the suffixid, and only grab the uniqueid if it contains the bits for scaled random suffixes.
17:
- Only send chat messages to the chat frames if db.chat is disabled.
- Don't filter out all chat loot messages, only those we'll be handling (we don't want to hide other people looting stuff..).
16:
- Fix the chat message stuff to only output to frames that have item loot enabled.
15:
- Apply the quality threshold to the examples again.
- Rework the way I'm handling the chat message modification. This should fix the last of the total count problems people have been running into with the new method enabled.
- Make newmethod default again, since it should be stable now.
14:
- Don't pause while trading or at a merchant, as they generate loot events.
- Make the total count in loot messages pretend that no items have hit the bags yet as of the loot message.
Example: If you were to loot 600 ammo all at once, depending on lag, it
could have shown: +200 (600), +200 (600), +200 (600) for the 3 messages,
indicating that all 600 hit the inventory prior to getting any of the loot
messages. While accurate, this is confusing to users. With this change,
it would show: +200, +200 (400), +200 (600).
13:
- Add option to enable/disable the new method of keeping track of total item counts, disabled by default.
- Fix the chatthres option (was acting like it was always on).
- Kill the Chat option from the LibSink output options, as it's pointless.
12:
- Fix self is nil error in chat processItems function.
- Reset lootprocessed to 0 when lootchatcount changes, to try to fix this odd count problem people are seeing.
- Change default output to UIErrorsFrame, as the libsink-2.0 fallback is chatframe1, which is silly.
- Add option to apply the item quality threshold to chat loot messages.
- Disable the 'apply to chat messages' option when chat message filtering is off.
11:
- Fix the options error in the example setup code.
10:
- Fix the miscount bug which has been floating around for ages.
9:
- Don't strip off the suffixes/enchants/etc of items that have them.
8:
- Add option to modify the loot chat messages to also have LootAlert's formatting.
- Add tek's "about" panel to the config.
- Set default profile to Default, as I highly doubt anyone would need to change this per character.
- Don't create our options tables until we need them.
7:
- Add LibSink-2.0 to OptDeps.
- Hardcode some info for the examples, so they don't need to be in the item cache to work.
6:
- Add "Example Messages" to options.
- Add ability to override / disable the "Loot: " prefix.
- Reorganize the options, moving Output to its own subcategory in the interface options and grouping the formatting options together.
- Fix the behavior of the Text Color option.
5:
- Change Item Quality Threshold into a dropdown instead of a slider.
- Change the layout of the output settings so they aren't cut off in Interface Options.
- Update LibSink-2.0 to fix the bug with AceConfig-3.0 scrollAreas config.
4:
- Added Item Quality Threshold option, so you can hide greys if you want to.
- Add in game configuration in the Interface Options and via /la or /lootalert.
- Use an embedded texture for the item icon for MSBT instead of using its skill icon stuff.
- Add the missing embedded libraries.
- Update to use LibSink-2.0 for output.
3:
- Prep for in game config.
- Fixups, cleanups, and add support for 2.4 texture links.
2:
- Fix sct display.
- Kill a bit of unnecessary string mt usage, color the item loot string such that only the item name itself is colored by rarity, and color the money loot string.. and clean up a little.
- Fix a couple little bugs and change the format for a loot when you're looting 1 item, but have >0 in the inventory already.
- Add spaces between gold & silver and silver & copper, and add support for icon in sct & msbt.
- Further cleanup.
1:
- Initial release.

I found a fix to make this one work again:

go to addon.lua and add another %d+: in line 221:
Code:
local itempat = "(item:(%d+):%d+:%d+:%d+:%d+:%d+:[-]?%d+)"
to
Code:
local itempat = "(item:(%d+):%d+:%d+:%d+:%d+:%d+:%d+:[-]?%d+)"
open scanning.lua and add another %d+: in line 4:
Code:
local itempat = "(item:%d+:%d+:%d+:%d+:%d+:%d+:[-]?%d+)"
to
Code:
local itempat = "(item:%d+:%d+:%d+:%d+:%d+:%d+:%d+:[-]?%d+)"
I got this from a similar addon (Cirks Lootcounter) and Krytharn posted an update of that addon in the comments, but it wont count further than one stack. I you unselect new method in this addon it seems to work.

There is an addon from Shadowed called DamnCraftSpam which is reducing the crafting spam in the chatframe. It won't work with LootAlert though and Shadowed declared he won't change his addon. Can you add this feature to LootAlert too?

You're welcome, I'm glad you like it. I'll keep an eye out, hopefully I can reproduce it at some point in the future. I hate those intermittent issues

I am running at the lowest UI scale.

Edit: I don't think I have any other addons outputting icons in that area, only text.
Okay, so you can do that as a workaround, that's something.. now, to find the cause.. I'm not doing anything special here, just utilizing blizzard's existing support for chat colors and icons. That said.. take a look at http://www.wowinterface.com/download...nyDPSBETA.html, at the paragraph about "Pixel Peeping". I'm wondering if what they're talking about there could be the cause of this?

Update: Clearly, I'm out of ideas here. Whatever the problem is, it's likely a general problem with font/text corruption that is exhibited here. Will do more searching of the forums to try to find others who have seen this.

Update: of course, you could try disabling the icon in the LootAlert configuration, and see if that changes the behavior. Could test disabling quality coloring too, but I doubt that's a factor.

It should be obeying the existing chat window loot settings, so you should be able to right click on the chat tab and disable loot messages in the settings there. If that isn't working for you, it's a bug. It does appear to work for me, though, I only show the loot messages in a separate loot tab.

Very nice to see this (and you) become active again .

A logon error with the new LootAlert 21.1, though.

WoW 3.3.3a live, USEnglish client/server, Ace3 r936 & LibSink r67, no prior saved variables. I normally run libs disembedded, but when this logon error occurred, I exited and embedded them. The identical error repeated the next logon. No other Ace3 mods run or tested in the past week have thrown unexpected errors with that lib revision:

Code:
["message"] = "LootAlert-21.1\\addon.lua:155: Usage: GetAddon(name): 'name' - Cannot find an AceAddon 'HideLooted'.\nAceAddon-3.0-5 (Ace3):175: in function `GetAddon'\nLootAlert-21.1\\addon.lua:155: in function <Interface\\AddOns\\LootAlert\\addon.lua:150>\n(tail call): ?:\n<in C code>: ?\n<string>:\"safecall Dispatcher[1]\":9: in function <[string \"safecall Dispatcher[1]\"]:5>\n(tail call): ?:\nAceAddon-3.0-5 (Ace3):539: in function `EnableAddon'\nAceAddon-3.0-5 (Ace3):629: in function <Interface\\AddOns\\Ace3\\AceAddon-3.0\\AceAddon-3.0.lua:615>\n<in C code>: in function `LoadAddOn'\nAddonLoader-2.0\\AddonLoader.lua:109: in function `LoadAddOn'\nAddonLoader-2.0\\AddonLoader.lua:130: in function <Interface\\AddOns\\AddonLoader\\AddonLoader.lua:119>\n\n  ---",
            ["type"] = "error",
            ["session"] = 2154,
            ["counter"] = 1,
        }, -- [852]
