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)

    I've just downloaded the new version to find out the dropout menu button to change the reset day. Thank you very much. This is just amazing addon I've ever downloaded. @stencil: Go

    @danielsungsoo: Go

    There should be a dropdown in the options to let you change the weekly reset day to Thursday. If its working correctly, it should even be filled with the localized versions of the days (so day names are supposed to be in Korean for you).

    EDIT I've just checked in a new version that should get the default value for the weekly reset day correct for the differenet locales.

    Hey. This is Daniel. firstly, i would like to thank for creating one of the most creative and effective addons. and also for your effort to keep updating.

    anyhow, I have one request for your program. because I have absolute no knowledge about creating or making changes on addon, i don't know how to make some changes on your addons.

    I'm playing world of warcraft in south korea where all the dungeons resets on thursday. and I have found out that dungeon records automatically erased on tuesday which sometimes make inconveniences.

    So, would that be possible that you create or select an option menu to change the date of dungeon reset? or if there's any change, is it possible to make some changes of your addons so a lot of users in south korea could use your addons more effectively.

    hope to hear from you soon.

    @mawang: Go

    I made a ticket for it, quick question: If you hold shift and leftclick the icon on the minimap, does it then get the number right? (while logged in with the char that has it wrong) If not, can do upload a screenshot to the ticket ( of the following /dump GetRandomDungeonBestChoice() This should give you a number, something like 341 or 301, which you then use to do /dump GetLFGDungeonRewardCapInfo(Number_from_previous_function) This should print quite a few numbers, could be the case that I need calculate the numbers remaining differently for old 5mans and the new troll heroics

    R171 There is no error message, Good!!!!

    The new problem is...

    I have 7 heroic dungeons(not troll's) finished character, but tooltip say 3 dungeons finished.

    I changed how the daily heroic stuff is done a bit, always call RequestLFDPlayerLockInfo() and then react in the LFG_UPDATE_RANDOM_INFO event.

    Even up to r168, I've had to fall back to 2.1.3 to get a functional version. The errors I've reported in ticket 30 and 31 persist in some form.

    I've done a search and replace in libsynctime that dridzt suggests below, and that hasn't helped remove issues.

    Is my platform totally screwed and I am unique in this?
