Cellular  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.2.001
by: totalpackage [More]

Cellular is an instant messenger mod (for only whispers) based on the functionality of an old version of ForgottenChat.

YouTube Intro



Features:

  • Many appearance options
  • History log
  • A way to copy text
  • Reuse of the default chat editbox
  • Whispers shown in separate windows or a tab-based single window
  • Should work with most spam filter mods
  • ...and other basic IM features


How to Use:
  • "/cellular", check Interface Options->AddOns, or right-click a window for options
  • Left-click a window to toggle the editbox
  • Left-click a tab to activate it
  • Shift-left-click and drag a window to move
  • Shift-left-click and drag bottom-right corner to resize
  • Right-click a tab for show/close/options dropdown
  • Middle-click a tab to close
  • Hold ctrl and close any window/tab to quick remove from history
  • Several convenient buttons (some require shift clicking for confirmation reasons)


Warnings:
  • If you have history enabled and notice that Cellular is using a lot of memory, you should cleanup your history entries using Cellular's history options.
  • If you're experiencing crashing due to memory errors, disable and clear your history.
  • If you cherish your history, you can back up the saved variables file and then delete it. You can view it in any text editor later. The location of the saved variables file is here:
    ...\WTF\Account\<Account Name>\<Server Name>\<Character Name>\SavedVariables\Cellular.lua

I like how you can use the Cellular windows to open their own editbox if you just want to focus on certain whispers (so thank you for that functionality, it's great for cy... err... in-depth tactical discussons).

Although as also mentioned by Jesamynm, it's getting very inconvenient when your editbox (that's supposed to go to /ra or whatever) suddenly sticks to a whisper window, very much appreciate the quick fix of your excellent addon!

Edit: caught a spelling error or two. You may keep the remaining ones

Cellular should no longer handle GM whispers in the latest release; I don't want to have to deal with blocking an entire Blizzard addon. Twelve hour format is already there for recent whispers. The history entries are still 24.

Not 100% sure what's causing that, but check out the latest version. I might have fixed it.

Is there a way to make Cellular stop "hijacking" the editbox?

Long explanation:

I use Chatter to lock my editbox to a specific place of the screen, and i have several Cellular windows pop up all over the place (what it is supposed to do).

Now, if i click a Cellular window to select it, it will put the editbox right underneath that window and no longer at my predefined (Chatter) location, i found no easy way to "fix" this besides going in the Chatter options and disable and re-enable the editbox polish option. Which of course sucks to do during a bossfight etc.

And thank you for this great addon

Heh, yeah, very late request. It's an easy fix, but I won't release anything unless it's a major change.

Noticed this in the previous version, forgot to mention it until now, so maybe it's fixed in 3.3 -- if so, sorry.

Anyway, GM tells appear to pop up in a pseudo-Cellular window now, which is certainly nice. However, Cellular appears to pop up its own window as well, which displays the "A GM is trying to contact you" chat message every time said GM sends a tell.

If there's a way to get Cellular to ignore GM tells and let the built-in window handle them, that'd be nice.

That will be hard-coded for 3.3.

I'll add tabbing support for 3.3.

Tabbing through multiple tells

Hi there,

This is a really nice addon... Thank you for the time and effort put into it!

I can't figure out how to make it do what I want and its becoming a bit troublesome to me so I had to post.

When I have multiple conversations going on and the tabs are enabled, when I press r it will respond to the last tell like normal. However it will switch the window as well which is great. However when I press r and then press tab it does not switch the window which is a problem because I have incoming tells that I can't see and I should be able to press tab and shift tab to cycle through the tab screens so I can read what people are saying.

I know it isn't a big deal to just click the tabs but its a bit of an annoyance that I would think should be easy to fix somehow but I can't figure out how to do it.

So any ideas on how to make it so it just switches windows to the correct name when I press tab and shift tab?

Also, is there some way to make party chats show up in this popup window as well?

Thanks!

Sacredox

Guess I forgot to mention that in the list of circumstances. I used cellular for a long time without remembering that it logged EVERY whisper in an external file, and cleared the history once it had hit about 1.7mb. Since then (about 4 months ago) I started backing up the history file in a separate file and clearing it every month so it never got that large again.

I have tried clearing the history/cache/saved variables. Also disabled history. Log in once and things are fine, but if I log out and change toons or log back in to same toon I get a crash.
I know this post was made more than a month ago, but I figured I should add to the list to see if we can get something sorted out, troubleshooting if you will. Until recently I used cellular, and I can agree it is far better than WIM. However, I was receiving random intermittent fatal errors upon logging into the game.

This application has encountered a critical error:

Not enough storage is available to process this command.

Program: C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\WoW.exe
File: .\src\lmemPool.cpp
Line: 311

Requested 5088 bytes of memory

So as to not clutter the thread, the complete text file for this error can be found here. This was the last memory error I got before switching away from cellular. This is another error I got after attempting to rule out arcHUD as a cause for the errors as well, as I found out that arcHUD has been abandoned for some time and hasn't been updated to recent patches. It took a number of logins but an error did eventually occur, ruling out arcHUD.

After some research I narrowed it down to cellular as one source of the errors. Note, ONE source, not THE source. Just to get it out of the way, I'm going to list the circumstances I've noticed for these errors, as I had been getting them for several months, starting some time (I don't remember specifically when they started occurring, but I don't remember them occurring before 3.1 launched) after 3.1 launched:

1. Cellular is NOT the only source of the errors- I never got an error after a decent number (40+) of test logins with only cellular enabled, but I have yet to get this error when cellular is disabled.
2. Deleting the cache folder would only work some of the time. More often than not it didn't work.
3. Disabling ANY addon and then logging in would (most often) stop the errors.
4. Renaming my WTF folder then logging in would stop the errors for one login after restoring my original WTF folder.
5. I can't rule out any of the addons I use as secondary culprits EXCEPT webdkp, as I only have that enabled on my main and the errors occurred on all my characters.
6. Despite having large addons like auctioneer and recount, the errors are not a matter of insufficient RAM or virtual memory- I have ~3GB running on 32bit XP.
7. When an error occurred, most (not all) attempts to log on to that character afterwards would also result in a fatal error, but logging in to another character would not.

Since this error, three of my addons have changed- ArcHUD2 to IceHUD, cellular to WIM(yes, it's a terrible addon by comparison, but it's better than not having cellular), and removing skada damage meter.

If anyone has anything to add to this, please do. I would like to find the absolute source of these errors and if it is indeed cellular see if they can be fixed, as cellular is without a doubt significantly better than WIM.

On the note of WIM though, one change I would like to suggest to cellular is the addition of an option to allow you to close all open whisper windows at once with a single key press, or something else quick and simple. This is WIM's only redeeming feature, an option to allow you to close all open windows with the escape key.

In the latest version, 3.2.003, I noticed the name coloring according to class isn't getting cleared from previous whisper, when someone else whispers me, their name is colored according to the class that I last talked to.
