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)

    Oh good idea

    Oh btw, maybe you could commit a trivial fix for LibSyncTime-1.0?
    Top comment outlines the issue.
    From what I see you're probably the only addon that's embedding it, at least reverse-relationships can't find any (other).

    The nil returns from GetLFGDungeonRewardCapInfo(id) is an initialization problem not related to how many heroics you have completed.

    The info is just not available to the client at the moment the function is called.
    A better solution is to comment out self:UpdateDailyHeroicForChar() in Ailo:UpdatePlayer() and instead queue a server request with RequestLFDPlayerLockInfo()

    You already have code in place for when that returns data (LFG_UPDATE_RANDOM_INFO).

    @oody: Go

    That function is a 1:1 copy of a blizzard ui function, damn. GetLFGDungeonRewardCapInfo seems a bit bitchy :/

    r166: throws an error when a character gets to 0 randoms left

    Ailo\Ailo-r166.lua:442: attempt to compare number with nil

    i removed the > 0 part on line 442:

                       if instances.dailyheroic then

    another error thrown for alts without item level 346

    Ailo-r166.lua:775: attempt to perform arithmetic on local "specificLimit" (a nil value)

    my lame hack adds a nil check and return 0 in the following function (near line 775)

    function Ailo:GetNumcompletionsLeft(dungeonID)
        local currencyID, currencyQuantity, specificQuantity, specificLimit, overallQuantity, overallLimit, periodPurseQuantity, periodPurseLimit, isWeekly = GetLFGDungeonRewardCapInfo(dungeonID);
        if specificLimit == nil then 
    	return 0;
    	local remainingAllotment = min(specificLimit - specificQuantity, overallLimit - overallQuantity);
            if ( periodPurseLimit ~= 0 ) then
        	   remainingAllotment = min(remainingAllotment, periodPurseLimit - periodPurseQuantity);
            return ceil(remainingAllotment / currencyQuantity);

    I'm sure there are still some funny unhandled cases, but this fixed the errors I've seen so far.

    Thanks a ton for working on this!

    @oody: Go

    Just have to find out how to retrive how often it has already been done this week :o

    4.1 patch makes "daily" heroics more into a weekly valor cap.

    Would be nice to track the 980 Valor cap from Dungeon Finder instead of the "70 Valor" daily tracking.

    Hi, is it possible to really remove the 10/25 split ? With the last update you removed the row with the text stating the raid size, however the functionality remains the same and i am still getting a column for 10 and one for 25 player raid sizes which makes no sense since they are the same.

    @Gergory: Ah yea, totally :D
