Cellular  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.001
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

Would there be a way to have the timestamp in 12-hour AM/PM format? . Sorry if this has been asked before.

Is your whisper history huge? It may not be Cellular alone causing this; maybe enabling Cellular puts you over your memory limit, or something. Try running Cellular by itself or deleting its saved variables.

First, let me say that I absolutely love Cellular. It's one of the most useful mods I've used. Unfortunately, I've been having a problem with it. My WoW client randomly crashes to the desktop whenever I have Cellular enabled and I reload my UI using '/script ReloadUI()'.

My client had been crashing for sometime (I suppose when I started using Cellular pre WotLK). With the release of WotLK I did a mod audit so to speak in an effort to trace the crashes. The crashes went away after I uninstalled Celluar. Recently, I decided to give Cellular another try to see if the issue cleared up. It has not.

I understand this is a tough one for you since I can't consistently reproduce the error and the error messages I can provide you are largely meaningless. For the sake of thoroughness:

Code:
This application has encountered a critical error:

ERROR #132 (0x85100084) Fatal Exception
Program:	D:\World of Warcraft\Wow.exe
Exception:	0xC0000005 (ACCESS_VIOLATION) at 001B:0071F18B

The instruction at "0x0071F18B" referenced memory at "0x00021000".
The memory could not be "written".


This application has encountered a critical error:

Not enough storage is available to process this command.

Program:	D:\World of Warcraft\Wow.exe
File:	.\src\lmemPool.cpp
Line:	311

Requested 3232 bytes of memory
I can only assume that it is related to the event mechanics of a UI reload as opposed to those of a new login. I know on a UI reload that certain events don't fire and others fire at unexpected times. I suspect this is where the issue lies.

That's being kinda picky, but I'm guessing you want to increase the number of days. I've increased it from 4 weeks to 6 weeks in the latest version. Or am I not understanding you correctly? Cellular doesn't automatically clear old data; it's a manual option.

Oh yeah, that is way overdue. Keep forgetting to do that. Done in the latest version.

No problem.

Hmm, I think this would require key binding, and I'll have to protect Cellular from bloated features.

I kind of left myself open for that one posting a double question, so either way I'll just make a post maybe going into more detail.

Say I press tab to switch between current whispers. Let's say I have a person named Bob, and Dave switching between the cellular tabs.

On cellular I have Bob's conversation open. If I press tab while I have my reply open it will switch to type a message to Dave then Cellular will switch the tab interface to Dave's tab. This feature was in WIM if you have ever used it and I switched to this because it was so broken.

Either way you choose to go keep up the good work - It's a great mod.

Added the option to clear data that's older than 30 days. May be useful to most. Data will be permanently lost.

@ Psychoshamoo - Nope.

@ Whatever4ever - No problem.

@ Samfisher - Wow, your history must be huge. You'll need to clean up by deleting entries from Cellular's history option. Or if you cherish your history, you can go into your WTF and back up your history (you can read it in any text editor) and then delete it:
...\WTF\Account\<Account Name>\<Server Name>\<Character Name>\SavedVariables\Cellular.lua

@ Kellindil - if you mean lock by not allowing mouse actions, then nope. That'll make Cellular pretty useless.

Thank you for making such a great addon!

Is there any way to lock the window?

Hmm, is there any way to decrease the amount of RAM Cellular uses when idle? I log in and before I even whisper anyone, it's already taking about 3MB RAM. When I disable it the game becomes smoother. I love this add-on but I have to turn this off to get better frames =( Is there maybe a lightweight version or some settings I have to tune? Thanks for this add-on!

Could it possibly be made where as you press tab to switch names it will also switch to the appropriate persons tab? If that makes any sense.

Sorry, can't pay you to say this since this is non-profit mod. Anyway, you're welcome.

It wasn't possible before; it's now possible in the latest version.
