I'm not going to be working on this for a while, as I'm not actively playing WoW right now. I will, however, update this as soon as possible! Promised!
Thanks to: Tekkub for teknicolor, which I used as a reference This AddOn supports:Class Colors Config type: Lua config. You will have to edit the core.lua file in the zChat folder to configurate this addon. There is no ingame config (yet!).
What is it?
zChat is a simple, lightweight chat AddOn. Made initially for personal use, it only has features I use and a few more.
Custom font size (default is 12, Blizzard default is 14)
Modification of the channel format (default is "CHANNEL|", Blizzard default is "[CHANNEL]")
Color player names in class colors (support for Class Colors, see above)
Change the appearance of the chat box
Save chat history inbetween sessions
Scroll through chat history without holding down your alt key
Resize and slightly reposition the chat buttons
Disable fading of old text
Possibility to hide the buttons
Possibility to move the chat box above the chat
Tell target slash command: "/tt message"
Own nickname highlight
New: Unclamp the chat frames
New: Hide the "friends" button
If the class of a player isn't known yet, the name will appear with a gray color.
Right-aligned chat buttons are not possible yet due to the button modifications. I will work around this later.
I suggest turning the chat options back to classic behavior while using zChat. The current release is the initial 3.3.5 release. Not everything I promised is implented yet, I just released this early to enable usage with 3.3.5 again. Stay tuned!
There's a small config in the core.lua. You can do/change the following:
Time stamp color
Time stamp format
Player name format
Player name no-class color
Hide the buttons
Move the chat box above the chat
I'm open for suggestions, though implementation of new features should be worth it (no useless features).
