Needy

Version: 1.3.1
by: Zenh [More]

Needy adds a few lines about a player's rolling habits to their tooltip. Needs/greeds are public information from the statistics panel.

Needy has two display modes: by default only needs are shown. Holding CTRL key will expand the tooltip to show greeds and additional information.

Additional information includes number of respecs, if the player has dual spec achievement, and what date the player achieved level 80. The intent of this mod is to provide credibility insight. In my opinion, you shouldn't have more needs than greeds.

Needy works with most popular tooltip mods (including TipTac and TinyTip).

The additional information can be hidden, just edit Needy.lua here (defaults):

Code:
local options = {
    showRespecs = true,
    showDualSpec = true,
    showLevel = true,
    showInCombat = false,
}
-----------------------------------------------------

Suggestions:

- 3/05/09: Display only while pressing modifier key. [Completed]

-----------------------------------------------------

Known bugs:

- 3/03/09: Opening the achievement panel shortly after /reload and mousing over a player unit will result in a FrameXML error. This is a peculiar and very situational bug related to add-on loading, so I'm overlooking it for now.
- 3/04/09: Needy and Elite work together but FrameXML errors occur after opening the achievement pane (/reload will fix it). This only occurs if running these two mods together. Still looking into this.
- 3/10/09: RantTooltip incompatibility.

-----------------
v1.3.1 (3/6/10) - Added an option to hide Needy in combat. Added two display modes: By default Needy only shows needs, holding CTRL Needy will show greeds and additional information.
-----------------
v1.3 (3/5/10) - Fixed a minor bug by checking if the player is dead.
-----------------
v1.2 (3/4/10) - Fixed more bugs.
-----------------
v1.1 (3/2/10) - Removed caching, fixed some other bugs.
-----------------

It doesn't. :/



Got a 55 % rating. :<

Btw. got the same problem as willgk, I'm using TipTop as a tooltip enhancer.

I'll look into this.

I discovered the source of this bug and a solution while working on another tool-tip mod (recently released: Elite). I'll update Needy sometime Thursday with a fix.

From field testing levels 15 through 80 I was receiving accurate results. Lowbies had reasonable greeds/needs for their level. My only concern is disenchanting. Group loot has disenchant/greed on the same roll, but as far as statistics go that might not be. I haven't been able to confirm if disenchanting ups the greed statistic count (I never win my rolls), but I'm assuming yes.

I hadn't received the error prior to adding this addon. I do have quite a few addons, but this was the only recent change. It was randomly occurring in Dalaran. I will see if I can reproduce it.

I can't seem to reproduce this, but seeing how the error is generated by FrameXML (Blizzard's UI) and not my add-on, I'm not sure it's related.

What level character is generating this error? Do you have any other achievement-based add-ons installed? Are you able to reproduce this bug on-demand?
