FuBar_QuestsFu

This project has become inactive.

This project is inactive and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. The author may have abandoned it, or it may have outlived its usefulness.

WARNING: I don't actively use this myself any more. I wrote BetterQuest which I now use instead. If you're not incredibly wedded to FuBar, I'd recommend switching.

This is a quest-tracker replacement plugin for FuBar. It provides a tooltip which replicates /most/ of the information from the quest log. It can display (or not): quest level, difficulty, objectives, zones, and suchlike. It will put quest information into the tooltips for quest monsters and items. It will make quest levels appear when talking to NPCs.

If other people in your party are using QuestsFu it'll show you how many of each quest objective they've gathered.

If you want it to, and don't think it will annoy people, you can send a message to party chat when you advance a quest objective.

Shift-click on quests in the tooltip to copy the title to the chatbox if it's open.
Control+Shift-click on quests in the tooltip to copy their objectives and status to the chatbox if it's open.
Control-click on quests in the tooltip to share them with your party.
Alt-click on quests in the tooltip to add them to Blizzard's quest-tracker.

QuestsFu includes a replacement for the Blizzard built-in quest tracker, which can track more than 10 quests at a time. Right-click on it to adjust its scale and coloration. (Or alt-right-click if you've locked the tracker.)

Achievements show up in QuestsFu's tracker. Ain't that cool?

Certain thanks must be given to MonkeyQuest, which motivated me to write this by being everything that I wanted in a quest-tracker replacement while annoying me by putting a frame over a quarter of my screen.

    Would be nice to get this fixed, really like the functionality and the Job done sound!

    QH quest tracking is not as nice as this.

    @slipfoot: same here on german client ... thats an issue since 3.2 ...only deactivating can stop that behavior at the moment

    please Kemayo bring Questfu on uptodate status .. i miss indeed the "Jobs done" sound

    @D-Town & Riega ... thank you for your overlook and ideas... your find/replacement suggestions for workaround are helping indeed

    Since Patch 3.2 I am not able to accept any Quests. Clicking on the button 'Accept' simply has no effect. Just tested wit r413. After deactiviating FuBar_QuestsFu accepting of quests is functioning again. Can anyone confirm this behaviour?

    Would anyone be willing to upload a working version anywhere? Even if the stated it's only temporary until the author uploads a working version..

    D-Town, many thanks. I added in details/details.lua Find/Replace - Replace "GetDifficultyColor" with "GetQuestDifficultyColor" to get rid of an other error.

    D_Town,

    Thank you for digging through the logs and finding those. You're a life saver! :)

    I haven't tested this much, but this seems to work so far. I'm not much of a lua developer, but I can certainly look at diff logs and try to make sense of them :)

    1. QuestsFu.lua: Find/Replace - Replace "QuestDifficultyColor" with "QuestDifficultyColors"

    2. QuestsFu.lua: Find/Replace - Replace "GetDifficultyColor" with "GetQuestDifficultyColor"

    3. Blizz\Blizz.lua: Find/Replace - Replace "QUESTS_DISPLAYED" with "#QuestLogScrollFrame.buttons"

    So beyond broken in 3.2. Dangit. Hope a fix comes soon! I so've gotten used to hearing 'Job's done' that I keep questing if I don't hear it. Sad, huh? lol
