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".

Sure. I'm using the latest version and I turned off any addons that might be interfering.

This is what a regular chat window looks like, as you can see it has no buttons to the side.



However in a seperate tab or window, it'll look like this:



As you can see the buttons aren't hidden.

Also, though while this is beyond what BasicChatMods does, when I hide the default transparent 'background' of the chat windows, it'll reappear in a special tab or window. It's the same principle I think.

I also noticed quite a while ago that your replacement strings for some channel names are off. You can see that in Haleth's screenshot, where General, Trade, GuildRecruitment and LocalDefense are not shortened. I fixed this locally by having the string set to "%[%d+%. General.-%]" so it catches the local area as well.
It would be awesome to have these localized as well, as these are not that many strings and it would really save (at least me) some time translating them on every update

Also, in case anyone wonders how to un-sticky the Battle.net whisper channel:
Code:
ChatTypeInfo.WHISPER.sticky = 0
ChatTypeInfo.BN_WHISPER.sticky = 0
in sticky.lua works like a charm

Choose 'classic chat' in the default WoW options ?

I'll be releasing a new (hopefully final) version of BCM soon, how about you PM me the translations.

Is this a real ID whisper? I assume you have your social>realID option set to new window instead of inline? Are you using classic or IM style? Trying to reproduce it and I need more info.

It's not a real ID whisper, it simply happens when you right click a whisper and select 'Move to whisper' or whatever it's called. It doesn't happen automatically. It applies to Real ID whispers and Real ID conversations too, though.

The 'new window/inline' option doesn't affect this directly because you can still choose to pop out a whisper into a seperate tab or window.

It happens with both classic and IM style, although with IM style, the regular editbox will show as well while with classic style it doesn't.

Looks like BCM is getting the blame incorrectly.

SHIFT+Page Down over the chat frame.

Looks like you'll just have to live with it, or not move your whispers to a new chat frame. This action creates a new chat frame on demand, which is otherwise non-existent. The current max chat frames is 10, these start at 11 and beyond. The button hiding script does it for the first 10 which exist at login, unlike this one.

It's probably fixable with some delving around but I'm not interested in the amount of code I'd need to do add, for something I don't use.

Not all channels allow special linking. Trade does, General doesn't.
