Moncai's Quest Tracker Basic

Moncai Quest Tracker

I have been developing my modified quest tracker over the past few years. Each time Blizzard updated it's tracker, I updated mine with it. Coded from the ground up again for patch 3.3 and adapted to 4.0.1, I'm releasing it here so others may benefit.

New release

  • Beta 4.0.1 is live and fixes issues with some quests and adds the option to show quest ID's
  • Beta 4.0.0 is live and should fix (hopefully all) Cataclysm incompatibilities.
  • Beta 3.3.3.2 (r36) is live. This fixes Questguru compatibility, collapsed tracker width and re-introduces the buddy system (at a basic level).

Current features

  • New: Tracker is optionally movable and you may choose to display Item buttons on the left side, see config (/mqt) under "Placement"
  • Tracker shows levels and colors but still stays true to the original by Blizzard
  • Includes all the questing goodies Blizzard has put into the 3.3.3 update
  • If you quest with someone else who has this tracker, you can track their progress
  • Works with QuestHelper 1.3.x, reflecting the order in which to do the quests (version 1.3.10 tested)
  • Works with Tourguide style addons by using built-in proximity sorting
  • Shift-click a header in the Questlog to toggle the watches for all quests under that header
  • Access the configuration screen by typing /mqt in the chat window or via "Game Menu"-"Interface"-"Addons"
  • A few features I have missed

QuestHelper integration

For a successfull integration with QuestHelper, please mind the following things:

  • Please use version 1.3.7 or higher of QuestHelper
  • Make sure it's enabled in the configuration screen (type /mqt to access it)
  • Disable the built-in tracker of QuestHelper, either via it's configuration menu or via the slash command "/qh track" (without the quotes).

Since QuestHelper is no longer actively developed, you may also want to disable the integration and then Right-Click the WatchFrame header ("Objectives") and in the pop-up menu select "Proximity" under "Sort Quests". Tip: this also works well with Tourguide based addons

Upcoming features

For now I consider the tracker fairly feature-complete except for the buddy leveling-system which I hope to extend in the future. If you have ideas, feel free to create a ticket on wowace describing your wanted feature.

Beta, what does that mean?

Oh yes, there will be bugs! Since I am only one person it's impossible for me to test every setup or addon-combination. If you like, please give it a try, and help me make the addon better. Your feedback is kindly appreciated!

    I am using r54 which I got from here and it works fine for me, but wanted to let you know that the Curse link from this page takes you to v4.3 on Curse.com that says it was Updated 4 September 2012 . It is listed as v4.30 and supports v4.3, not sure if it is a mistake and should say v.5.04 .

    Keep up the good work as I know there are others besides me who enjoy your addons.

    You should name the file 5.0.4 as v5.4.0 is way down the line for release by Blizzard.

    Ok figured this out..

    The issue described blow occurs with either Chinchilla or MoveAnything (either one or both) are loaded. Disabling both fixes this issue.

    I did that, and i get the yellow square on the screen.

    It seems to not be connected to the objectives frame though..

    I can drag the square around, but that seems all it does, it is not physically linked to the tracker window

    I cannot seem to move the quest tracker frame.

    I have 'float the tracker' clicked but there doesn't seem to be method to move the frame.. Am I missing something?

    Athariel, thanks for your contribution! I'll see what I can do!

    On a side note, the í in Moncaí is not fancy, its Gaelic (and encoded in UTF8 which all strings should be).

    And one more thing, actually. It's not like someone really cares about our language, but current way of text composing addon uses is very unfriendly to russian translation, for instance the word 'you' used in "You have X mobs to kill left" and "You have finished (quest name)" must be translated differently, or else one of these sentences does not make any sence.
