Calamath's Quest Tracker  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.5.0
by: Calamath [More]
Description:
This add-on provides a traditional MMORPG style multiple quest tracker, distributed under the Artistic License 2.0
In designing an alternative for the standard focus quest tracker, there are three things we wanted to improve with this add-on.

(1)To improve playability when you want to progress through the zone story and surrounding side quests in parallel.
(2)Provide a way to freely select which quests you want to see in the tracker without having to hit the T key repeatedly.
(3)Provide a different quest tracker option for new players who have migrated from other MMORPGs.

- If you are familiar with other MMORPG titles, are you looking for such a multiple quest tracker?

Needed libraries/dependencies:
YOU NEED TO INSTALL THE FOLLOWING LIBRARIES SEPARATELY.
- LibCInteraction (Bundled library)
- LibAddonMenu (Version 2.0r34 or later)
- LibCustumMenu (Version 7.1.3 or later)
- LibMediaProvider (Version 1.0 r22 or later)

Features:
- Display up to ten quests based on character's recent quest-related activities.
- Pin your favorite quest to show all the time.
- Each quest can be hidden by ignore settings.
- Display optional steps and hints for quests.
- Quest Timer integration
- Improved functionality of the "Cycle Focused Quest" key

Tracker panel customization:
- panel visual options - title bar color / background color.
- Font options - font style / size / weight / color.
- Visibility options - in combat / in game menu scenes / in battleground.

This add-on is designed to be used in conjunction with the standard quest tracker and other quest tracker add-ons without conflicting with them.

Release note:

When I returned to ESO from other MMORPGs, I looked for something similar to my favorite quest tracker.
It is one of the first add-on developments, and it took almost two years to release.
Thanks to all my friends who have contributed as testers over the years.

The unpublished version needed to maintain a large hard-coded table for each language, and I could not agree to release it.

Later, the API elements introduced in the Blackwood Chapter have brought a technical breakthrough. Made it possible to obsolete hard-coded tables. However, I focused on the Shortcut Pie Menu add-on last year and put this one on the back burner. So it took a long time to release.
ddd
Version 1.2:
I have now fully integrated the Quest Timer functionality and completed the implementation of the planned features.
It can replace all the features of the standard Quest Tracker. And I believe it is stable.
From now, I will focus on the implementation of the wish list.

I hope this add-on will encourage adventurers.

- Calamath


Notice Advisory:
As of version 1.4.0 you will need to enable a bundled library LibCInteraction to use this addon.

My apologies; I was recovering from a tooth extraction at the time I wrote this and should not have been communicating.

I am aware of that, but the behavior I observed was that on some characters even after clicking Ignore, the quest won't disappear from the list at least until a relog. It's difficult to reproduce. I was unable to make it disappear after Ignoring it even with a reloadui.

Just some characters. If there's anything I can do to help troubleshoot I'm available.

Hi K1nor
I'll consider adding a keybind to show/hide the quest tracker panel.
It will be implemented in the next version, or the version after that.

Implemented in version 1.4.2.

Handling of a malfunction in the Move Frames feature of the BUI add-on

Hello jomoroon!
Hey vazelle, it slips my mind.

We have reproduced the problem you guys have pointed out.

The reason why the Move Frames feature of the BUI stops working is that the design of the BUI does not take into account other add-ons that add their action layers.
In other words, the CQuestTracker side cannot address this issue.

The problematic code in BUI is the section shown below.


Code:
-- -------------------
-- BUI_Settings.lua
-- -------------------

	if move then
		local function OnLayerChange(eventCode, layerIndex, activeLayerIndex)
		--	d(BUI.TimeStamp().." ["..eventCode.."] "..layerIndex.." "..activeLayerIndex)
			--We only need to act if it's in move mode
			if not BUI.move and not BUI.moveDefault then return end
-- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			if layerIndex<=4 and activeLayerIndex>2 then    --  <--------- HERE!!
-- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			--Unregister events
				EVENT_MANAGER:UnregisterForEvent("BUI_Event", EVENT_ACTION_LAYER_POPPED)
				EVENT_MANAGER:UnregisterForEvent("BUI_Event", EVENT_ACTION_LAYER_PUSHED)
				BanditsUI:SetHandler("OnEffectivelyShown", nil)
				if BUI.move then BUI.Menu.MoveFrames(false) end
		--		if BUI.moveDefault then BUI.Menu:MoveDefaultFrames(false) end
			end
		end
		EVENT_MANAGER:RegisterForEvent("BUI_Event", EVENT_ACTION_LAYER_POPPED	,OnLayerChange)
		EVENT_MANAGER:RegisterForEvent("BUI_Event", EVENT_ACTION_LAYER_PUSHED	,OnLayerChange)
	else
		BUI_Menu_Move_Anchor:SetHidden(true) BUI_Menu_Move_B1:SetHidden(true) BUI_Menu_Move_B2:SetHidden(true) BUI_Menu_Move_B3:SetHidden(true) BUI_Menu_Move_B4:SetHidden(true)
	end
Thus, to avoid the BUI issue, you must either.

(1) Turn off the "Show In Game Menu" option in CQuestTracker.
or
(2) Turn on the "Hide This Quest Tracker" option in CQuestTracker only when using the Move Frames feature.
or
(3) You negotiate with the author of the BUI and wait for him to improve the code in the problematic areas.

We generally do not create patches for other people's add-ons unless we have accepted a special request from a team member or a donation supporter.
Thank you.

Hello xDaedran!
Thanks for your suggestion.
I have received a request to add an icon to the tracker panel to make the quest type visible.
Your request has also been placed on my long wish list.

Also when I use the PVP addon AP Meter and Kill Counter, whenever the mouse mode is on, both of their addon UI is missing. When I disable your addon everything works fine again and their UI is back on the screen. Must be some conflict with your quest tracker. Hopefully, it can be fixed
Hi vazelle!
Thanks for the interesting info. Unfortunately I do not use those add-ons.
So please give me some more information.

First, if you are using BugCatcher, please disable it.
1)If only 'BUI' and CQuestTracker are enabled, will the problem still be reproduced?
2)If only 'AP Meter' and CQuestTracker are enabled, will the problem still be reproduced?
3)If only 'Kill Counter' and CQuestTracker are enabled, will the problem still be reproduced?

If other add-ons try to manipulate CQuestTracker panel frame, it won't work.
If there is an add-on that is doing that, I would need to ask the other add-on to exclude that process.

Hi Falkean,
a new version with an integrated quest timer will be released shortly.
I will add options to adjust the quest hint font in the next V1.2.1.
