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)

    can you add more black space at the top of the tool tip, right now the cursor covers the headers, and when moving it up or down at all, you lose the tooltip. thanks =D

    V2 doesnt work for me. Shows no saved instances. And when I left click the icon it shows a bugged raidframe.

    Can or will AILO track 'The Frost Lord Ahune'?

    The LFG dungeonid for the seasonal ahune fight (to see if you've done it and got the reward goody bag already is) 286.

    So ServerError, I think you you could just make a quick hack to ailo.lua and replace GetLFGDungeonRewards(262) with GetLFGDungeonRewards(286). What this would do would be to change ailo from tracking whether you've done the daily heroic on each character to whether they've done the ahune fight once. Obviously that means for as long you as run with that hack you can't also track the daily but its a quick and dirty way you could track now.

    edit: tested it just now and yeah making that change works
    additional ids
    286 Midsummer - Ahune
    287 Brewfest - Corin Direbrew
    285 Hallow's End - Headless Horseman

    it's posible that you code seasonal quest like Event of summer, of love is in the air event !?

    depending on the length of the header (instance-name) the size of the green/red block is. is there a chance to modify the size of these blocks (maybe in the lua itself) or could you pls implement such a function? your addon is really nice. only the size of these "blocks" has to be equal (my opinion) ;)

    Yes. Use a LDB display. They are pretty much all "minimal".

    But if you want super minimal, try a LDB display like Blockoland or StatBlockCore. For the ultimate in minimalism, there is tekblocks.

    Any chance of an interface other than a minimap icon? Having a slash command pop open a small window (similar to that of an item) that displays the same formatted information as the mouse over tooltip would be nice for those of us that prefer minimal UIs.

    Please, could you add daily battlegrounds to the list? Those reward 25 arena points once a day.
