BasicChatMods  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: r531
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.

Time Stamps

Can someone please tell me which/what to edit out of channelnames.Lua, to get rid of timestamps, and yet keep the abbreviated channels names, please?

Could you add a context (right click) menu "Copy this line" thingy like in Prat?

The only thing I lack for a perfect chat addon without a hundred useless options

Count: 1
Stack: [C]: in function `format'

Hello

I used prat and chatter, but finally found the best: Basic Chat Mods
For me it is the best because it uses almost no memory and CPU.

The only thing I miss, is an thin outline ... because the chat is hard to read if you set a transparent background.

What lines of code can I add somewhere? Or could I make a module for it?
Might be interrested in an addon called NeonChat, it builds off of this one and I think it does what you're describing above.

For anyone like me wanting the new Party Guide shrunk down in size. I worked around it by switching the Party Leader and PL on line 55 in channelnames.lua from :

Code:
CHAT_PARTY_LEADER_GET = "|Hchannel:party|h[PL]|h %s:\32";
to

Code:
CHAT_PARTY_GUIDE_GET = "|Hchannel:party|h[PG]|h %s:\32";
After quite a few heroics I still haen't gotten any errors.

Possibly a serious bug

Hey I just downloaded and installed the updated BasicChat, have used the older version for months now.

Today however when I needed to submit an in game petition Basic chat mod apparently blocked me from submitting the ticket. I got a pop up message that it had blocked it and the ticket was deleted as well. I wasn't able to submit the petition until I had disabled the mod.

I was a little upset as I had used the copy feature to copy a name with those funky characters out of chat into the ticket and lost the spelling since the error forced me to disable/reload ui.
Kept popping up over and over with that message Disable or ignore but when I ignored it would pop up again.
I didn't get any message regarding what kind of error it was besides the pop up saying it had accessed something available only to blizzard and the disable/ignore button.

Hope you can figure out what this is about, I've disabled the mod entirely for now until I get this petition thing settled and can't really try to duplicate it until then.

Would be much more convenient to have a one-click-scroll-all-the-way-down possibility...

Thanks for a neat and compact addon!
