BasicChatMods  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: r533
by: funkydude [More]

Type /bcm to configure BasicChatMods, a basic and modular approach to chat customization.

By default BCM will allow you to drag your chat frames to the very edge of the screen, the remaining customization is done in BCM's modules which can be enabled or disabled at will.

A few of the current modules include:

  • Button Hiding
  • Channel Name Customization
  • Chat Copy
  • Font Customization
  • Chat Frame Justification
  • Player Name Customization
  • Real Id Class Coloring
  • Sticky Customization
  • Tell Target
  • Timestamp Customization
  • URL Copy

Combat Log Timestamps: Are already provided by Blizzard, right-click combat log tab > Settings > Formatting > Show Timestamp. Repeat this for every combat log, e.g. "Self", "Everything", "What happened to me?", "Kills".

Fixed issues with playernames not always showing levels or being colored.

Channel names are no longer replaced when changing zone.
Added a /group slash command to send chat to whatever group you're in (instance > raid > party > say
Several bug fixe


Fixes a BNet error when a friend logs off.
Fixes the chat history not applying to combat log.
Changes the "no real name" BNet option to replace real names with BNet names instead of wow character names.
Restores the last 5 chat lines when you reload UI.

Somehow on my chat all channels are sticky even when i disable the addon
Did blizzard made all chat sticky by default or is something wrong with my chat options.

I tried to fix it by changing sticky.lua as follow but it doesn't work


--[[ Sticky Channels ]]--

--[[
Following are off(0) by default so we turn them on,
comment them(--) to turn them off
]]

do
ChatTypeInfo.BATTLEGROUND.sticky = 1
ChatTypeInfo.CHANNEL.sticky = 0
ChatTypeInfo.EMOTE.sticky = 0
ChatTypeInfo.GUILD.sticky = 1
ChatTypeInfo.OFFICER.sticky = 1
ChatTypeInfo.PARTY.sticky = 1
ChatTypeInfo.RAID.sticky = 1
ChatTypeInfo.RAID_WARNING.sticky = 0
ChatTypeInfo.SAY.sticky = 1
ChatTypeInfo.WHISPER.sticky = 0
ChatTypeInfo.YELL.sticky = 0
end

FIXED chat frame can be placed at the edge of the screen again.
FIXED copychat icon now only shows on-demand again, generally improved the module.
REMOVED Scroll module, 3.3.3 compatibility.

You can use shift+pagedown on chatframes to scroll to the bottom, this is default Blizzard functionality.

To move EditBox need:

FOR CLASSIC CHAT
-------------------
editbox.lua:

old:
local eb = ChatFrameEditBox

new:
local eb = ChatFrame1EditBox


FOR NEW IM-CHAT
------------------
Now, each chat window has its EditBox.
Accordingly, now need to create multiple eb (eb1, eb2 and others) for each window and the associated EditBox by analogy with the solution for Classics Chat and separately configure it.

Enjoy

There's now a new "IM" chatbox which has a frame visible at all times. However in your Blizz options letting you swtitch back to "classic" chat boxes removing that editbox.

Thanks for taking the time to go into detail shank, I'll look into those issues on Wednesday.

argh, I get happy that Blizz adds features brought to the game by our favorite addons, but then does it half way. A couple things of note:

Blizz's "mouse wheel scrolling in chat" lacks the feature of holding Shift when scrolling to jump to the very top or very bottom of the chat.

I can't move the chat window up against the left side of the screen. Even if the buttons are hidden, the chat frame can not be placed flush against the left side. It's as if something is preventing the buttons from being placed off-screen even though they are hidden.

Again, these are vague statements. There's nothing broken with the current version. I don't anticipate changing much when EU gets patched.

What exactly needs "updated"?
