Error occurs when using Cartographer_Noteshare to share "Quests". The error only occurs when trying to share "Quests", nothing else. Fishing, General, Herbalism and so on all work fine, so posting in this thread.
Cartographer_Noteshare r36983, Cartographer_Quests r36982 (both last had major code updates months ago), Cartographer r41206 (and several other addon modules), ChatThrottleLib r38117. Choose to share entire databases with a single person. Click on "Quests" in the sharing menu and:
"ChatThrottleLib-17\\ChatThrottleLib.lua:432: prefix + text length cannot exceed 254 bytes\nChatThrottleLib-17\\ChatThrottleLib.lua:432: in function `SendAddonMessage'\nAceComm-2.0-41562 (Ace2):1470: in function <Interface\\AddOns\\Ace2\\AceComm-2.0\\AceComm-2.0.lua:1404>\nAceComm-2.0-41562 (Ace2):1619: in function `SendCommMessage'\nCartographer-r40952\\Cartographer_Notes\\Notes.lua:3216: in function `SendNoteToPlayer'\n...ns\\Cartographer_Noteshare\\Cartographer_Noteshare.lua:562: in function `BroadcastNote':\n...ns\\Cartographer_Noteshare\\Cartographer_Noteshare.lua:546: in function `DumpZone':\n...ns\\Cartographer_Noteshare\\Cartographer_Noteshare.lua:524: in function `DumpDatabase':\n...ns\\Cartographer_Noteshare\\Cartographer_Noteshare.lua:378: in function `func':\nDewdrop-2.0-41534 (DewdropLib):665: in function <...erface\\AddOns\\DewdropLib\\Dewdrop-2.0\\Dewdrop-2.0.lua:604>"
ChatThrottleLib had the following added to it last month (revision log): "SendAddonMessage: assert() that text+prefix+1<=255 since exceeding it will cause a disconnect, which may look like overload problems when in fact they aren't". This error only occurs clicking "Quests" under the above sharing circumstances, no other shared module. It reoccurs every time you click "Quests" when trying to share.
Allow quests tagged as unavailable to be manually changed to available. Currently, the priority of unavailable in the LUA code prevents this from working, even if you do manually change it to available. This is necessary as some quests are actually available above the [player level + 3] cutoff in the code. For example, I have a level 20 character who can currently accept a level 25 quest and a level 30 quest, but they register as unavailable and my override has no effect on the map icon.
If quest level doesn't appear in the tooltip, adding that would probably be pretty simple. I didn't remember it being there, but I can't verify right now as the server is down. This is recorded in the LUA file anyway, so why not. Please ignore this if it's already in the tooltip.
This would just be a "neat" feature (really useful though), but it would be cool if the quest exclamation icons for available quests were colored (green, yellow, orange, red) based on their level as compared to the player's level.
I may try to add these myself and post what I did if no one responds to this within a few weeks. Thanks for this incredibly useful addon, as I have 10 characters and love to do every quest I can (mostly for rep). This addon removes the headache and constant running around checking NPCs for quests I have abandoned to free up space.
Is there any way to bulk mark all quests for a character as done within a certain zone?
The reason I mention it is that i've been using Cartographer_Quests since the first day of TBC but sometime after that the mod was changed from just remembering quest givers locations to remembering the actual quests. Recently i've been levelling an alt through TBC which has resulted in a lot of Yellow ! appearing for my main character as he did these quests before Cartographer started saving the quest information.
I know I can manually change these using a right click, but doing this for several hundred TBC quests that were never saved on my main character would be ridiculously tedious.
Seems that BEQL mod doesnt work to great with this. All quests (available, completed and active) show as available on map (big yellow '!'). Any suggestions on a double panel Q log mod that works without these problems? or another way to fix it?
I whas wondering wy the "!" (quest givers) marks don't show on my cartograph i update evry 2 days with the "WowAceUptader net 184.108.40.2068"
Is it becose we have a new wow patch 2.3.3 ? Or is it becose i hit lv70?
I just got the latest Cartographer along with Cartographer_QuestObjectives and Cartographer_Quests from the SVN. After poking around on the Cartographer boards I found a nice compiled DB so downloaded and extracted to "$WoWDir\WTF\Account\$AcctName\SavedVariables" The 2 files in the DB were "Cartographer_QuestObjectives.lua" and "Cartographer_Quests.lua". After reloading WoW and verifying that all 3 Cartographer addons were enabled, I logged into my little lvl 1 gnome. I pulled up the map (The nice HUD Cartographer one) but there were no quest icons!. I ran around a little and found some NPC's with quests but nothing ever appears on the main map. If I pull up the preferences for Cartographer I see a sub-section for "QuestObjectives", but nothing at all about "Quests". It's as if the "Quest" module is not loading.
The point to this whole ramble was this: Is there a way to tell for sure if "Cartographer_Quests" is actually loaded? If it's not, is there a way to manually load it?
P.S. These are brand spank'n new off the SVN (WowAceUpdater). If anyone thinks that's the problem let me know and I'll go get'm from Curse or something.
