Ailo Tooltip #3

Little addon which saves me quite some time with all my twinks.

What it does

Rembers which of your chars are saved to which instance.

  • Weekly raid quest (Dalaran quest) [Will updated once there are Cataclysm versions]
  • Every Instance that gives you a SavedInstanceID is trackable!
  • 7x Daily Heroic per week (number represents the amount left on the character)
  • Daily PVP, Tol'Barad Victory
  • 5man heroics (Option to show 5mans in the tooltip is OFF by default)

Updates on login and every time you get the 'You are now saved to this instance'-message, a shift-click on the tooltip forces a manual update. So you don't have to log onto your chars to see if you can join that raid with one of your alts

Currently only a LDB icon:

  • Right click: Brings up the configuration (change tooltip colors, profiles)
  • Left click: Bring up the RaidFrame, Shift-click for manual playerupdate
  • Hovering: Shows a tooltip of all instances. Green = free, Red = locked out (default colors, you can change them)

Config options:

  • Standard Ace3 profile things
  • Change colors of the tooltip
  • Change abbreviations used for instancenames (Ailo tries to get a 'first char of every word'-type, but that is kinda hard if you have a locale which relies heavy on utf-8 chars)

    Thanks so much for this addon Starfox. It is working great for me now, since 1.0.9. Great job. Thanks also to those that reported errors and helped with trouble shooting.

    I don't think there is any other addon that does what Ailo does.

    You rock.

    Well yea
    hc = heroic
    nhc = nonheroic
    It is that way just because it is quite the standard naming on german servers, but I'll add a config to change it to whatever.

    Works like a dream.

    A few things tho:

    It doesnt show Ulduar 10? Or its added to the list when saved id appears in calendar? nhc = Not HC? wouldnt be better to have an N = normal and HC=heroic

    Nice that you upgraded again. Will try out instantly. Suggest you to not drop this addon. Its just too simple and trivial to use, understand when it will work as intend.

    So lets try it.

    ps: It loaded up fine. No minimap icon. Ailo->geenral settings-> minimap not checked!!! Thought thats it just check and its fine. But when i pressed it on LUA error came :( See ticket.

    Tagged a new release, because wowace does not create zips for my normal revisions, sucks quite a bit.
    If I can't fix that minimap thing I think I'll just drop it and people should just use a LDB display addon. :S
