I have seen a few Quest Mods for Wow that track every quest you accept, Drop, complete, etc.

i was wondering if there was a way to bring that data into the roster as well?

Sure it's possible. You compare the new quest list against the previous one, and log the difference. That's about the same we do for memberlog. You can't log quests you received and completed without uploading inbetween though.

Or you could use an ingame quest logger as a data source for this, and just store everything it stores.

Chances are you're gonna have to write it yourself though.

I assume there is some kind of tutorial on how to write mods?

i have never written software before, so i am not sure how, or where to begin

http://www.wowroster.net/MediaWiki/AddonSDK
It's more of an SDK than it is a tutorial

Try copying one of the other addons as a start as well

Hey cwpc,

yesterday i´ve installed the WoW-Addon "MonkeyQuest" and begin to write an addon to track quests in roster. I´m still at the beginning.

If you would write your own addon for the roster, look at the wiki (Roster -> AddonSDK).

Edit: Zanix was faster with Wiki information ;)

I have used monkey quest in the past, so ill re-install that.

If you are already working on something perhaps i could just help you? I really have little to no time to try and learn how to code, and then develop the add on.

Yeah you can help, i need more data (Files).

Here´s a quick overview of what is done:

* Adding MonkeyQuest.lua upload field to update
* Parsing MonkeyQuest.lua and insert/update data in database
* Frontend on Realmmenu which display´s all data that could be found for the realm and the status is 1 (quest not completed).
* Frontend on Char which display´s which should display all the quest from the selected char (this should display all quest completed and not completed quests).
* Linked Quests so you can click on a Questname an get a List of all Characters with this Quest on the Realm).

To do:

* Parsing of MonkeyQuestLog.lua (my file is at the moment empty)
* Parsing of other Lua Files from other WoW Addons (if there´s another i need a file)
* Adding configuration to rostercp (at the moment it is in /inc/conf.php). So the default order could be changed, the width of the table and the border-color.

This was more of a Quest history log - what quests you have done in each zone, etc. Unless Cartographer_quest_objectives.lua records that info also?

Hey, i´ve looked at cartographer_quest_objectives.lua, cartographer_quests.lua and cartographer_questinfo.lua. But all these files saved the quests, but not by character. So i can´t find out which quest was made by char.

But with MonkeyQuest i only have actually quest. I´ve completed some quest with my Level 8 Twink, but they are not in MonkeyQuestLog.lua. In MonkeyQuest.lua are only the quest as in the normal questlog. If someone know if there´s a option that i must set in MonkeyQuest to track the quests let me know.

Edit:
The only that i´ve found is that Cartographer logs the quest historie in a cartographer_quests.lua in the SavedVariables-Folder in each Character Folder, so it must be uploaded foreach chars. But in this file there are only the the questnumbers. So then i must get the addition questinfo from databases of other sites.

I´ll have checked it ;)

That´s the best i´ve found. But this addon even stores the data in each Charfolder "savedvariables" and in the file there´s no charname :(

But i think i could handle it in two steps:

First: Upload the QuestGuru.lua, parse it and write the data to a temporary table. (before writing the data, the table will be cleared so that there´s no old data, even when the processed was aborted by user)

Second: User must select the char for which the data are. Then i get the data back from temp. Table and write it back in another table (with charname) where all questhistorie will be located. At the end i clear the temp. Table by using the "Truncate" command.

This is not optimal but at the moment i see no other way to handle it.
