Version: 6.0.0.141019-2

Official repository can be found at GitHub.

Tired of loot spam in the chat? Wish there was a way to reduce the amount of messages generated by the game upon looting, reputation gain, experience gain, and so forth? This addon was created to counter just that!

Features
  • Filter
    Hide reputation, loot, currency, experience and gold messages. You can hide all the junk loot messages generated by the group, yourself or both. You may even set a item quality limit to what is hidden or not.
  • Timing
    You can group up several messages and generate a report of all changes that have happened in a specific time interval or after combat has ended. This helps avoid spam during fights.
  • Extra
    There are several extra features. To name a few: Pet Battle messages can be neatly summarized. Hover tooltips when you mouse over hyperlinks in the chat. Class coloring of names.

Stability
The addon has been tested with several languages, but with each major patch things may break. If you encounter issues please post them or submit a fix yourself.
6.0.0.141019-2
- Updated libraries and hotfixed a bug introduced by Blizzard.
- Hotfixed my own code.

6.0.0.140730
- The start of a new expansion means fresh change log.

Hey, me again. I just switched on the tooltip function to check it out, and I noticed something odd. When hovering over the name of someone (in gchat, whisper, trade channel, etc) I get a really weird list popping up:

When hovering over user 'Praksis' I get this tooltip:

[1] player
[2] Praksis
[3] 2699
[4] GUILD


Now, I think I can figure out what line means what, but I don't think this is something that should be displayed, no?

I know, it's basically for the tooltips that have no original handling so I simply took the raw string, split it up by the ":" separators and print the results like that. It's not really needed so I will remove it for next release. For now it simply allows you to peek inside those clickable things that can't be linked, hehe. :P


Just to explain:
[1] player
[2] Praksis
[3] 2699
[4] GUILD

Means the link contains "player:Praksis:2699:GUILD" and all it does it tells the click handler that it's a player whisper and the 2699 is the message ID in case you right-click and report that message/player -so GM know what to look at. The last part is the source, I guess he said something in guild chat.

After some testing it seems to be WIM that is causing this to happen.

Very strange, I will check WIM out and see what this can be caused from, if I find something I can try to walk around the problem or notify the author if it's a issue with WIM itself.

Thanks, I think I can manage till then, haha.

Trying to help by making a list of what I believe doesn't need a tooltip:

- player names
- realID names
- channel names (when you first enter the channel)
- profession links
- urls

What could use one, but doesn't have:

- currency icons (JP that you get from Ahune's bag, JC tokens from the dailies, etc)

In 1.5k the weird tooltips that have no real meaning are gone and I made it show tooltips on currency in the chat too, you can even try to link it but it wont work as currencies have no links implemented -fun fact anyway. :P

In any case the currency tooltips are not perfect and I may do more work on them by next version, for now this will do I figure.

Ninja updated to 1.5l and it fixes the bug with odd coloring on the options (filtering) and handles the new currency tooltips. Still I use my own but will eventually combine the implemented once with my own twist, showing current amount of that specific currency in the tip.

In any case it's summer now and I'll be back with updating my addons by end of July, have a nice holiday!

opts.lua seems hackable, so I've been playing with it.

--

There are three values being used. The left one seems to be the one I should update. What are the other two?

--

Code:
hideEvents             = {},           -- will be populated with events to totally ignore from showing (use the config GUI to do this, preferably)
How is this used? Also, I couldn't find a config GUI. Is it written yet?

--

Perhaps you should change the sleepAfterCombat/sleepBetweenEvents functionality to just show loot x seconds after the last loot.

Keep in mind that the opts.lua defaults settings are only used when you run the addon for the first time, then the settings get stored in the WTF folder. Those values are used for fallback if data is corrupt or on first runs.

I am not quite sure what you mean, where exactly?

These comments are outdated kind of, just kept some notes while writing. The GUI is in-game, ESC->Interface->AddOns then look for MiniLoot on the list. You can modify the settings using that interface.

Originally posted by spiralofhope

The reason it's like it is right now is to be able to give the player time to keep looting and the addon to keep gathering messages, before printing them out. The tricky part is that we don't want to wait too long but not too fast (or it's basically blizzards same old behavior). For now you can disable combat tracking by setting the combat sleep timer to -1, if that's what you wanted to do.

For now I am happy, no comments being posted means people use the addon and don't encounter problems, hehe. I hope I understood you, hope I helped you find the config GUI, it's a bit easier to use than editing the lua files! BUT keep hacking, hacking is fun, seeing how things work underneath. That's how I lost my old two WoW accounts, I was digging too deep! :P

Thanks for writing back so quickly.

I did not realize opts.lua was only the default information. This explains why my changes weren't working. I started hacking it because I didn't see an Interface > Addons entry for MiniLoot. I'll look again.

I meant in opts.lua, for example:
Code:
  hideJunk               = {1, 0, 1},   -- set to 1 to hide gray (junk) loot, set to 0 to show it
I learned that it was the third number I should change. But now I'm editing the SavedVariable, which only has one number. =)

..

I'll try ["sleepAfterCombat"] = -1 and I'll do ["sleepBetweenEvents"] = 6, to see if I like that.

Hopefully I can find the configuration GUI now that I know it exists.

Indeed, hehe. If it helps here is a screenshot:

In the ops.lua code I use tables to specify the default value and the minimum and maximum values. This way if you edit the file and use an invalid value it will reset it to the default, this way I avoid people writing to me about error messages from the addon related to bad configuring.

If you don't see the menu (it would be really odd, probably some other addon doing something to make mine fail) you can read the values from the tables, like for hideJunk you got {default, min, max}

Hello again, glad to see a faithful user!

I've checked running only MiniLoot (latest) and WIM 3.5.7 and these are my findings;

The gold doubles because of how WIM handles it's hooking of the chat.

MiniLoot uses ChatFrame_AddMessageEventFilter (default chat function) in order to read gold received from quests and add that to the internal gold received counter. The MiniLoot code runs once one time per quest gold received message.

With WIM it does something to the chat events and executes the function two times, hence why the gold doubled. I assume it has something to do with how it hooks the chat functions and MiniLoot's behavior is then like collateral damage.

WIM is a huge addon, I have not been able to pinpoint where in their code is the cause, but one way of dealing with this would be to half the gold gained from quests if WIM is running, on purpose -it would when it sums then show the correct value. It would be quick and dirty but work for WIM users.

The only problem I have in order to implement a workaround, is that the chat message for gold received by quests looks like "Received 5 Gold, 2 Silver and 35 Copper." but it changes depending on how much money it is, if you have 0 Gold/Silver/Copper it is removed, and because I use only the game strings (so it works in any language of the game) I'd have to find the numbers and half the copper by two, then rebuild the proper string and finally let it pass trough the event handler in MiniLoot, it can be quite the task.

I will do one thing, I will contact the WIM author and nicely ask for help how to avoid MiniLoot's misbehavior -he probably knows WIM inside out and would know how to find the error or help me buy-pass it. I just hope WIM isn't dead, I checked the forums and it was kind of silent... in any case sent an PM to a developer.

I hope it is not annoying you too much, but I do understand it can get tiresome to always manually have to half the gold in the chat when delivering a quest.

Cirk's Lootcounter

Hey i realy love this addon and woud like to use it! But i use Cirk's Lootcounter (+Prat 3.0) and it won't work together with your addon ;( I don't realy need all funktions of lootcounter (only the counter i don't need search funktion or something...) So maybe you can also implement a lootcounter into this addon since Cirk isen't supporting his addons any more
