Chat Consolidate
Version: r9
by: Xubera [More]
Chat Consolidate
Youtube video of the addon in action. Watch full screen and 720p for best results!

Chat Consolidate is a stand alone AddOn for World of Warcraft that filters the chat frame. Too long have players made a macro for the group and spammed the chat lanes with their posts that take up half the screen. Those posters make other posters post just as frequently to get their group advertised as well. Well no longer!

r8 changes - 09/03/10
* Fixed the bug where the tooltip likes to stay on indefinitely
* Fixed the bug where filtering custom channels completely hid the channel
* Fixed a lot of compatibility issues with other chat related addons.
* Added a report feature, where you determine which ignore words you want to report. Either auto report, or a prompt. Also able to hide the report message when using auto report.
* Adjust some dictionary entries
* Adjusted the ASCII Filter to be less strict.
* Adjusted the throttle to be between 1 and 128 instead of 1 and 50.


Chat Consolidate uses a few simple techniques so you can take control of your chat frame once again. Chat Consolidate will do the following:

* Transform long posts that naturally take up more than one line, into a condensed one line Link.
* Transform macroed posts that are small, but send out 5 separate lines, into a one line Link.
o A link upon clicking will display the full message as intended by the poster.
o A link will scan the text for meaningful keywords that you choose. (Comes default with the most common)
o A link can be mouseovered while holding shift (with an option, you can view without shift) into the user's tooltip.
* Color codes keywords. The default addon comes with 26 keywords and predefined colors. These are completely customizable. Change the keyword, change the color, delete it, add more. You highlight and filter what YOU want to see
* Has an ignore feature. Add words you do not want to see. This feature is useful for
o Gold Spam! Comes with common keywords used by gold sellers to filter them out.
o Word filters, like Thunderfury or Anal. Add more like murloc or Chuck Norris if those are prominent on your chat lines.
o Saved or tired to ICC this week. Add ICC to your ignore words and everything ICC related gets filtered out. Then, just open up the dictionary and delete the ICC keyword when your ready to read information about ICC again.
o Language filter! Have kids that play WoW too? Add words you do not want your little one to see. The stock filter merely covers the word, where you can still infer what the word is. Chat Consolidate will remove the entire line! Turn "$@!% these n00bs!!" into ""... that's right! Into nothing!
* Makes your chat frame slimmer. [2. Trade] goes to [2]. <Busy> and <Away> tags are removed! Obviously if they are annoying you with spam, they are neither away or busy.
* Throttle tracker. This will keep up with the number of times you chat is throttled. Just cosmetic so you know how hard this AddOn works for you! As of now, my counter is up to 13,810. How high does yours go?
* Dump Frame. Setting a dump frame allows you to set a frame where chat will never be filtered, throttled, or ignored by Chat Consolidate.
* Override. Sets a frame that you want to always check for width. The addon selects the current frame in focus to determine the width allowed to truncate properly. The override feature is there in case the chat frame you want the filtered chat to appear is not the same width as the one that's usually in focus.
* Auto Report. Automatically reports people you ignore that you opt for. For example, you have the ignore words Black Temple and Anal. You flag anal to be reportable. So when someone says black temple, it just gets ignored; however, anal get ignored and reported.

Slash Command List
/cc or /chatc or /chatcon opens the interface menu
/cc dump n where n is a number 1 through 10 (sets the dump frame, where text will always go unfiltered and unthrottled)
/cc override n where n is a number 1 through 10 (sets the frame used to determine width for truncating messages)
/cc spam - Displays the last message Ignored.

How is this different from SpamThrottle?
Simple, SpamThrottle looks at a message and blocks it for a set amount of time (default is 10 minutes), My addon looks at a message and blocks it for a set amount of unique posts to go by. For instance, if your throttle bar is set to 15, and PosterA posts a message, he has to wait for 15 more unique posts to enter your chat screen before his message can be posted again.

Prefer SpamThrottles method over mine? Chat Consolidate will work together with SpamThrottle, giving you the double layer of spam reduction you desire.

send me an email, and ill send you a quick fix... its funny how i already know the issue as soon as i look at the line where the error is being thrown...

This comes from the addon author who called his code and made variables, and then used blizzard globals that change every time your screen updates. Because my addon waits a set time to eat up all incoming lines from a macro, i screen update has to be called... therefore, these other addons assume the globals are still active, which they are not... so now I have to adjust my code to re assign these globals for them >< aggravating lol

edit::
Okay i fixed the errors, but uh, it doesnt show trade chat anymore >.> so i dont know what hes doing, sorry

also, i cant check if it atleast forwards it either, because no one on my server uses it i guess, stood outside for like 10 minutes, not a post

I'll send him an email though

editedit::
Scratch everything, i got it to work thought I did have to make sure my filter comes first so meh >< anywho, it works just give me an email to send the fix, just know if your like me and enjoy having the combat text alert on, that its gonna get spammed twice for every ignore you do if you filter customs and yourself

Looking forward to trying your next version.
Filter Trade/LFG/General/Customs are refer to channels not content :/ I get the vibe that you thing the option Filter LFG only filters lines with "LFG" keywords among them... It refers to the LFG Channel :/

Now would you want that if it doesnt find any required key words... or there has to be 0 keywords?

I was thinking about adding another debug tool like my throttle tracker... One that will keep up with current posts per minute, maybe an auto off on the 2 lined words if PostPerMinute is above this threshold... also PPM being an adjustable setting

Something to play around with

If i (shift-)hover (or click, i'm not 100% sure) a link to see the message and move the cursor out of the chatframe while still holding shift i can "re-activate" the message by pressing and holding shift again. It's quite annoying trying to scroll up in the frame, finding the same message, spamming shift a couple of times, making sure it's let go and then move the cursor out of it.

Hope i was clear enough. Keep up the good work!
There is the rare occasion that when the trade chat adds another post, the tooltip doesnt go away, this is true with the shift key option required to be down, or not. If for instance, you had the option to require shift off, the tooltip would be on indefinately. There is code in play that tries to fix this, however, sometimes it gets through... Simply hover over anything to actively change the tooltip (an action on your actionbar for instance, or perhaps another player in game) and it should go away

Todo List:

Alright, sometimes, I just like to sit around trade chat and watch my addon at work so I can see the bugs and things that need attention...

So for those who are interested, this is my ToDo list on fixes and additions.
  • Add additional channels to be filtered. (General, Trade, and Customs)
  • I noticed Achievements like [Glory of the Ulduar Raider] would pull out Ulduar from the link, and it would mess up the color coding
  • Contemplating adding a dump channel, one where you can see Trade chat unfiltered, so you can see how much work its doing, or if your paranoid that its filtering too much
  • Strip {star}{circle} ect from the tooltips
  • Devise a system to counteract ASCII art, an option of course if you like to see the STFU truck and the like
  • Sandbox to work with your custom entries... Like type the expected message up top, type your filter below, and see the output. Also, on my side, I have the channels going pretty well, and I use a custom channel to sandbox my filters already

    --
  • Add an option to allow 2 lines of trade chat through before condensing
  • Fix the tooltip where it doesnt hide ><

While I'm pounding out a heavy work load for r7, anyone else have a suggestion or a feature they would like to see?

Green text indicates finished feature
