1.34 Changes:
  • Added itemname() to match items by name. Returns true if the item name contains any of the provided strings (case insensitive), e.g. itemname("Maelstrom", "Alkosh")

1.33 Changes:
  • Bumped API version for Murkmire.

1.32 Changes:
  • More huge performance improvements! Thanks again to Shadowfen who did all the work here. (Pre-compile rules as they are changed)
  • Replaced Set Tracker support function GetSetTrackerState() with IsTracked(). If you used the old function, you will need to update your rule (sorry). This was done to bring the usage inline with the way the other similar functions work. Usage, e.g.: IsTracked("Sell/Decon", "Collecting")

1.31 Changes:
  • Big performance increase (2x or better for me), thank you to Shadowfen for the code change suggestion!
  • Updated libraries

1.30 Changes:
  • Added French translation. Big thanks to Hasgaad!

1.29 Changes:
  • HOTFIX - resolve errors at merchant due to Wolfhunter API changes.

1.28 Changes:
  • Bumped API version for Wolfhunter.

1.27 Changes:
  • Bumped API version for Summerset.
  • Added support for jewelry crafting ingredients. Note: you will need to either create a new rule yourself, or reset AutoCategory to default settings to grab the new default rule.
    • To create your own rule, use
      Lua Code:
      1. filtertype("jewelrycrafting")
    • To reset to default settings: In the Auto Category add-on menu, use the Defaults button. Then use the /reloadui command. Important: this will remove any custom rules/settings you have defined.
  • New API function "IsMarkedIS()" - use to test whether an item is marked with Item Saver. Note that FCO ItemSaver users should continue to use "IsMarked()"

1.26 Changes:
  • New API function "islocked()" - use to test whether an item has been locked.

1.24 Changes:
  • Resolve circular dependency issue with DoItAll (requires matching update to DoItAll).


1.23 Changes:
  • Added Set Tracker support! Use "getsettrackerstate()" to retrieve the name of the Set Tracker category, if an item is tracked.
  • Added charlevel() and charcp() to pull current character level and CP. Can be used to compare item level to your character level with a custom rule. (Thanks to VulcanTourist)

1.22 Changes:
  • You can now define separate settings for your home storage chests (they will take their initial settings from your bank settings, but can be customized at will).

1.21 Changes:
  • Added support for home storage chests (big thanks to raj72616a). Currently, they will use the settings selected for your bank (no custom settings for home chests yet).

  • New Feature: Items Count. You can get a total number about how many items inside the category. This can be turned off in the general setting menu.
  • Account Wide setting changed: You can switch account wide/character wide for each of your characters. (* Need to select again if you use character setting before, don't affect the bag settings)
  • Fixed bug: Removed duplicated rules in bag setting.
  • Fixed bug: German set names should be able to be matched now.
  • Changed api:keepresearch()
    After a lot of tests, the api is not working fine. So I decided to make the api work more simple: It will match all the items can be researched. If you want better result, please use it with other api together. This is a basic idea to filter the item that is not part of a set and can be researched:
    Lua Code:
    1. keepresearch() and not isset()
  • New api:isset() api:ismonsterset()

Hey,
could you add transmute crystals in the next update?
I already added it manually, looks like this:

["container_currency"] = ITEMTYPE_CONTAINER_CURRENCY

Much appreciated :-)

grabbed this addon in conjunction with betterUI for gamepad mode, could you instruct me on how to set it up so it auto categorizes my armor sets? looking at the addon settings it seems like it should be obvious how to set it up but mine isnt working so im afraid im missing something obvious

it works fine in kb/m ui, but not in gamepad. as i mentioned i am using it in conjunction with betterui

Talking Found a Bug

Heey, first off let me say i love your addon, a clutter free inventory, my OCD agrees with this addon.

now yesterday i was running scale callers peak/crypt of hearts, and the items that drop from those dungeons just up and vanished, they were in my inventory, but i couldnt see them. so far i found out the next sets are for some reason just not showing up. but still take up a spot.

-Ebon Armory set
-Jorvuld's Guidance Set

those are the two sets i found out arent showing by this addon, cause when i disabled this addon, suddenly within the clutter that was called my inventory, all pieces were there

I hope this makes sense, and is spelled correctly in english. thanks again for making this addon.

Addon Issue

Hello, and thank you for making this. If I had to pick a top #5 addon's to make this game better, this is in there, and I appreciate it

The issue I'm facing is that container rewards don't show up in my inventory.
I.e.
I just did my crafting writs, I press "I" to open my inventory to see the Consumables Category glowing, indicating that there are new items there.
Now, there should be containers as rewards from the writs, but they're not there.
-To fix this I have to turn off the Addon, then I can turn it back on once I've opened the containers.

This also happened with Undaunted Coffers.

I think this is one of the best addons ever and has tons of info, i am so confused though. I want to add a category that separates my master writs so i can easily see them and not have to scroll for them


*EDIT* I think i figured it out, but why does it say unrecognized on arguments when you run checks, it makes you think you didn't write it correctly.

What is wrong? Before I wanted to add a category for treasure items, it didn't work. But whem I added treasures to the "selling" category - they appeared there immediately.
I created a Category "Materials" - "Treasures" and put
sptype("jewelry_booster")
as the rule.
Check came back as Good.
I then went up to bags, and in the Add Category section, I selected "Materials" - "Treasures", and hit the Add To Bag button.
Finally (since I'm ESO Plus), I went to my craft bag and retrieved some "Iridium Plating" so that it would appear in my inventory. Then I looked in my inventory to see the section "Treasures" with the "Iridium Plating" that I had just retrieved.

Sorry to take so long to respond, but I watch the comments for AutoCategory - Revised since that is my version of AutoCategory. I only come here to the original addon comments occasionally.

Since you updated yesterday, and this addon (AutoCategory version 1.37) has not updated in months, it is likely that you updated to "AutoCategory - Revised" - whose saved variables were no longer compatible with the older AutoCategory since AutoCategory - Revised went to version 2.0 when Elsweyr came out.

In the change log for version 2.0 of AutoCategory - Revised, is noted the following Breaking Change:
"The SavedVariables for version 2.0 have changed formats from 1.37 in order to support multiple servers and character name changing. This means that 2.0 will not be able to read in your 1.37 category definitions. I recommend that you move your live\SavedVariables\AutoCategory.lua somewhere else (or print it) so that you can refer to your old rules to enter them back into the new AutoCategory."
The changing to incompatible saved vars is not a bug in this case; and is not a common occurrence - this time it was caused by a change that Zenimax introduced.

Yes it is a good idea to save the .lua from the SavedVariables folder someplace safe just in case because they can be copied back into the SavedVariables folder, if they accidentally disappear. If, on the other hand, the saved variables file simply "stops working" with no changes after an update then it is possible that your backup file will also not work.


Oh thank you so much for your response. Amazing how fast !

Let me please correct something. Yes, indeed I am using the revised, and have always used it. Thats because when I started playing, not long ago, it was already published.

So considering it is within the other version, can i presume correctly there is no "compatability" issue? Which leads to the next question, should I post over there instead of here?

Much much appreciated !
