Scrooge Tooltip

Inspired by the venerable FuBar_MoneyFu, Scrooge is a complete re-implementation from scratch in the Ace3 / LibDataBroker world. It retains the most popular attributes of MoneyFu, while adding new features and polishing the interface.

Notable features:

  • Tracks money across all your characters, showing total wealth in the tooltip.
  • Option to show or hide opposing faction characters on the same realm.
  • Ability to track a personal guild bank (i.e. bank alt guild) and consider its gold as a part of your wealth.
  • Tracks cash flow and shows total profit/loss over several time periods.
  • Option to show cash flow on a per-character, per-realm, or account-wide basis.

Important: Scrooge requires an LDB-based display addon, such as DockingStation, Bazooka, ChocolateBar, StatBlock, etc.

    It would be neat to get a printout of how much money I have collected for the guild bank also. Could also make it calculate if I spend money or remove money from the guild bank so I can see if I'm giving more or taking more via guild repairs and such.

    From the days of the FuBar precursor to this mod, I initially had the same concerns about money mailed between alts.

    But once you pick up the cash on the alt, your totals don't change at all except "This Session" totals. Unless you prefer seeing per-character totals only on each character, which reduces the utility of the mod.

    Overall I don't see it as a major issue; no other currency mod has ever added such detection.

    Hey Subxero. You may want to check out the latest alpha. I added a "simple totals" option that hides the Gained/Spent lines as well as an alternate tooltip view that can be configured differently and is shown when you hold down a modifier key.

    I've thought about the whole mailing to alts situation quite a bit during the development of Scrooge. The same thing happens with deposits to a personal guild bank. Unfortunately there's no foolproof method to detect that, especially with mail. I may try to add some heuristics at some point, but they'll definitely be an experimental option as I can't see a way to make it 100% reliable.

    Hi Thelibrarian,

    Work with Button Bin also :) Great work!

    -Can add a simple view tootltip, and with key pressed like shift toggle to show more information.

    - Gold movements between alters (by mail) can be ignored ? Because Gained/Spent gets "big numbers" without make nothing.

    BR ;)

    The issue with it not including the current player's money in the total was a bug that didn't show up until I fixed another bug. It should be corrected in the latest alpha now :)

    Great addon. Simple, money, that's it, no badges or other crap everyone seems to be adding lately. Only question I have, Is it possible to include the current toon's gold in the total amount? I can't seem to get it set up to show all toons, including the one i'm on, in the total amount of gold.
