BasicChatMods  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v7.48
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

Class Colors: Are already provided by Blizzard, right-click chat frame tab > Settings > Tick Boxes
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".

But at first they were in their proper spots.
My laymans guess is that they're linked like that and some obscure hook or something aligned them like that after a while.

Well i don't know, just thought i'd let you know.
Sounds like you've disabled the buttons module. If you want to keep it disabled, then you will also need to disable the scrolldown module. If you've not disabled it, try deleting the BCM addon folder and re-installing it.

great chat mod!

I have a question - is there a way to remove the brackets around the "[Toonname]"?

ocd strikes!
In theory yes, in this addon, no.

Hi, awsome work as always, love the double click feature of the chat tabs for copying text. So much better than having the icon in the corner all the time, thanks

I have a little request about the Toastbox that appears above the chat frame for RealID messages. I was just wondering if it's possible to make it re-align with the chat frame when you have the buttons module enabled? Basically i have my chat frame to the left of my screen which with buttons hidden means i can move it much further to the left. The only problem is the toast box is out of line witht he chat frame and gets half cut of the screen

I know its not a big thing and maybe not even worth your time bothering with and i have found an addon to allow me to move the toast box to where i want it, but it would just be nice if i didnt need a seperate add-on just for that.

Either way, thanks for all the work you put into this mod. Would be lost without it
I'll look into it, probably end up just setting it clamped to screen and see what happens.

Should be fixed in v4.02
Keep in mind that if you take the chat frame right to the very edge, Blizzard will flip the toast frame to the other side, so it's best to keep it 0.1mm off or so.

Always nice to see what you have done. but im not too into the



also it seems the copy is limited more. ie how much it shows. to copy.
not ness a bad thing.

but maybe you could add the copy from dd click the frame to right click and at the bottom of the settings tag.

I'm willing to bet you won't get that error if BCM is the only addon loaded. If you are, then simply re-install the addon. But it's more likely you updated/installed another addon that's doing something it shouldn't be.

What "seems" and what truly is are two different things. It has not changed.

Hey there!

I've been using BCM for a while now and simply love it. There are however two things disturbing that impression ...
First: When initiating a private chat (classic chat frame layout) the new chat window shows up, is docked and everything is fine. Except for the frame backdrop (still the default one), its position (these chat frames have once again the whole hitrect-inset, so it's horribly out of place) and the chat buttons to the side (I personally don't *really* care about them, but just to complete this list). This happens on both situations - completely new characters without any settings as well as "senior" characters that have been played and toyed around with the options for a long time.

The second part is this one: Usually, urls in chats get linked properly. There are however often situations where they're not. Some of those are teamspeak urls or urls in the mixed style "our.cool-server.com:1337". Those are not that great, but I rarely encounter those links. What is annoying, though, is this:

This happened when I whispered one link to a friend, trying to get his addon (out of question here) and my chat addon to link it. So I tried differenct versions, and none of them triggered a link!

I have the same problem i even tried to reset the settings to defalut but that still didnt work ... any other sugestions?


Works fine for me, try right clicking your chat tab and resetting it to default.

No longer supported?

Outgoing whispers aren't created into links on purpose. Try whispering them to yourself.

Kicko!

Hi! I have a bit of an issue clicking through the editbox when it's up top for tabbing, could it be made clickthrough or maybe something else that would not interfere with the chat tabs?

Thanks Bigwigs.
