Altoholic  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 9.0.003c
by: Thaoky [More]

Hi, my name is Thaoky, and I'm an Altoholic

Altoholic is an Ace 3 add-on written for people who dedicate most of their time to leveling alts, and who want to have as much information as possible in one place.

About the add-on:

The add-on has been in development since December 2007 and was officially released in late March 2008. It provides you information about your alts (bags, mails, AH, etc...) without having to reconnect them all the time.

Supporting development:

You might not know this, but add-ons do not write themselves.
If you want to help development, or simply show your appreciation, use one of the following ways:


About the author:

I was born in '76 (you do the math) and I work as a Project Manager + Software Architect + Full Stack Web Dev (yup, multiple hats) in a large multinational, so my coding time is limited, and Work > Gaming.

I live in Belgium, and obviously play on EU only.

Assistance will be provided on a best effort basis, but in any case always be polite and respectful when asking for help, I am neither a teenager, nor a punching ball. I am a cool guy with people who are cool with me. Respect that rule and we'll be fine.


Availability:

2018/09/29: I will be moving appartments at the beginning of November, so my gaming + coding time will decrease gradually until then. Do not expect movement until mid November.

Current Issues:

2018/09/29: There is an issue with characters disappearing from the account summary. It can be solved by clearing your SV files (long & hard way), or simply by changing the level filter to "120", then back to "All" again.

Credits:
  • I'd like to thank my guild, Odysseüs on EU-Marécages de Zangar, for assisting me since the earliest phases, thanks guys for everything you've done
  • Thanks to the all the people who have supported the add-on since 2008, and also all those of you who came on board later.
  • Thanks to all the guys who have helped with code/translations/bug tracking.. and well, project support in general, especially during my long absences. Such projects can be long and tedious, it is good to not feel alone

Join the #altoholic IRC channel on Freenode : irc://irc.freenode.net:6667/

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR 8.0 : As with every new expansion, many things have changed in the API, and it is REQUIRED to clear your Saved Variables for the addon.
This means cleaning the following files in \WTF\Account\<your_account>\SavedVariables : Altoholic.lua & All DataStore*.lua

There WILL be bugs if you use your old files without cleaning them first.
Some fixes to work around API changes are too time consuming, so cleaning is required. A meagre price to pay once per expansion.

How to support Altoholic's development :

- Use the donate button either on Curse or on WoW Interface
- Support me on Patreon : https://www.patreon.com/Thaoky , the page is still being setup, it might take a few days before it can be used, I still need a banner.
- Make a gift from my amazon's wish list : http://amzn.eu/7xWdnbZ

If you like the addon, consider supporting it, this has been the long term effort and commitment of a single person. #OneManArmy

9.0.003c (15/01/2021)

- Fixed a bug where a soulbind's name could be returned as nil and cause a Lua error.
- Fixed 2 Lua errors in the Skills panel of the Account Summary Tab.


9.0.003b (14/01/2021)

- Minor fix, forgot to include files in the Altoholic_Characters .TOC file.

9.0.003 (13/01/2021)

CLEARING YOUR PREVIOUS INSTALLATION IS MANDATORY FOR THIS RELEASE, AS WELL AS YOUR SAVED VARIABLES !!!!

- Following the addition of the offensive code by Teelo in the latest release, I have taken back control of the development based on 8.3.001.
- All changes by Teelo have disappeared and will not come back, at least not in their original form.
- Code has been updated to support 9.0 API changes.
- Summary Tab : added a new menu item for Covenant Sanctum data.
- Characters Tab : minor fixes in several places
- Characters Tab => Garrison Icon : added support for the command table missions of the covenant.
- Characters Tab => Covenant Icon (new) : added 2 panels for renown & soulbinds. More to come here.
- Grids Tab => Emissaries Icon : modified string formatting a bit to show to which extension an emissary quest belongs
- Grids Tab => Emissaries Icon : added support for Callings
- The following DataStore modules are no longer part of the project, and are not supported : DataStore_Rares, DataStore_Keystones, DataStore_Covenants.

Note: I reactivated my subscription on 28/12/2020, so not everything is in yet, and I still have to make further in-game progress on some things before they get into the add-on.

Many of you will probably wonder which features will come back or not, all I can say is some will, some won't.

Agenda error

I took the required steps when updating to this version. I deleted the Altoholic and DataStore directories under Interface and WTF then downloaded this. I've used WoWup to keep it up to date.

I have gotten this error a few times when logging on, including right now.

Code:
1x DataStore_Agenda\DataStore_Agenda-r32.lua:368: bad argument #2 to 'strsplit' (string expected, got table)
[string "=[C]"]: in function `strsplit'
[string "@DataStore_Agenda\DataStore_Agenda-r32.lua"]:368: in function <DataStore_Agenda\DataStore_Agenda.lua:363>
[string "=(tail call)"]: ?
[string "@Altoholic\Events.lua"]:443: in function `BuildList'
[string "@Altoholic\Events.lua"]:487: in function `Init'
[string "@Altoholic\Altoholic-r193.lua"]:324: in function <Altoholic\Altoholic.lua:318>
[string "=[C]"]: ?
[string "@!KalielsTracker\Libs\AceAddon-3.0\AceAddon-3.0-13.lua"]:70: in function <...s\!KalielsTracker\Libs\AceAddon-3.0\AceAddon-3.0.lua:65>
[string "@!KalielsTracker\Libs\AceAddon-3.0\AceAddon-3.0-13.lua"]:527: in function `EnableAddon'
[string "@!KalielsTracker\Libs\AceAddon-3.0\AceAddon-3.0-13.lua"]:630: in function <...s\!KalielsTracker\Libs\AceAddon-3.0\AceAddon-3.0.lua:615>
Also, maybe related or maybe not, the minimap icon displays. When I go to options, that option is unchecked so it should not show. I have to click it on then back off again to get it to disappear.

For everyone else who is looking for the correct SavedVariables...

Posting here with some help: the problem is that there are multiple folders named SavedVariables.* The folder you need to look for is*

.../World of Warcraft/_retail_/WTF/Account/######/SavedVariables

*

where ###### is a number that is the name of the folder for your individual account. If you have two accounts, there will be two folders named with numbers, which will be different numbers.* If you have one account, and characters on different servers, the SavedVariables folder will be mixed into the list of servers.* I had a bit of trouble finding it because I have characters on 3 different servers where the name starts with S, and my eye was skipping over SavedVariables when I scanned the list of folders.*



Hoping this helps folks. Thaoky, if you want to take this info up into the description, feel free.*

I don't think I will be reinstating patreon, but paypal is still there if you want to.
Ok! I was asking cause it's still listed on the front page of the addon, here, and I didn't want to be confused. (any more than I usually am. )

Re: Re: Extreme confusion - no SV folders to delete?

Yeah, the problem is that there are multiple directories called SavedVariables and it gets confusing *which* one to look in. I've got it done now!

I just went to delete the saved variables. In the .../_retail_/WTF/SavedVariables, there are only two files - Blizzard_Console.lua and Blizzard_Console.lua.bak. In ../_retail_/WTF/Account/SavedVariables there is nothing at all. In .../_retail_/WTF/Account/(accountnumber)/SavedVariables - there are files. In the various Account/(accountnumber)/realmname/charactername/SavedVariables, there are not files under the name of Altoholic or Datastore.

I guess it's been too long since I did this. I'm removing the ones in accountnumber/SavedVariables, and figuring I have backups if that's wrong.

clearly I have a case of the dumb...
-Barleduq
Yes you just need to clear Altoholic* & DataStore* from the saved variables, as the format of the database has changed in a few places.

Welcome back, and thank you!

Should we do any cleanup of files or directories before installing this version, given what's happened in the past year or two? I still have XXXXXX's fork installed, the version prior to bad code.
