MikScrollingBattleText 4.1 (Fan Update)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.5.91d
by: Fiercy [More]
Updated again on 5/04/2011.

Mik has returned and is updating the addon. So please do not download this version unless you want the additional sounds that I put in.
Edit: Sounds removed for copyright issues. Libs are the most current though.



This addon is for those who are weak at heart when it comes to modifying code in complex addons :P Again this is a fan update, that's all. I Protonova of Rexxar (US) do not claim any responsibility or ownership for this addon. The creator is Mikord. I only updated it while Mikord is absent.


I am in no way claiming that I have updated this addon by myself or that I created this addon. This is a fan update and should be used with caution.

USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

The update was detailed by Morsker on the Curse addon comments. You can see his post at http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/mik-scrolling-battle-text.aspx.

I would also like to thank Zidomo for pointing out Morsker's solutions. As well as sp00n for the merge off-hand event fix.

I hope to see Mikord back and willing to sink some time on some new improvements. <3 MSBT!!! Can't raid without it lol.

Info Request

What did you update exactly? Does the old version works on 4.1?

The old version does not work with the 4.1 patch. What I changed is detailed on the link provided in the description. Or look below :P

As to how to actually fix the three files properly, here's clear, accurate information from Curse provided by Morsker:

"On all three lines, insert a "hideCaster" between "event" and "sourceGUID". Make sure to get the commas right. So this:

event, sourceGUID,

becomes this:

event, hideCaster, sourceGUID,

---

MSBTCooldowns.lua
CLEU event handler
line 246

MSBTParser.lua
ParseLogMessage
line 344

MSBTTriggers.lua
HandleCombatLogTriggers
line 698
"
-------------------------------
If instead of the above you either did it yourself copy-pasting from earlier posts or you downloaded the earlier RAR file provided, MSBTCooldowns.lua must be changed to work properly.

As per the above, in MSBTCooldowns.lua change line 246 from this:

Code:
function eventFrame:COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED(timestamp, event,  sourceGUID, sourceName, sourceFlags, recipientGUID, recipientName,  recipientFlags, skillID)
to this:
Code:
function eventFrame:COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED(timestamp, event, hideCaster, sourceGUID, sourceName, sourceFlags, recipientGUID, recipientName, recipientFlags, skillID)
And will repost the other two lines done properly following Morsker's directions (that are posted properly by earlier people here):

In MSBTParser.lua, change line 344 from this:
Code:
local function ParseLogMessage(timestamp, event, sourceGUID,  sourceName, sourceFlags, recipientGUID, recipientName, recipientFlags,  ...)
to this:
Code:
local function ParseLogMessage(timestamp, event, hideCaster, sourceGUID, sourceName, sourceFlags, recipientGUID, recipientName, recipientFlags, ...)
-------------------------------
In MSBTTriggers.lua, change line 698 from this:
Code:
local function HandleCombatLogTriggers(timestamp, event,  sourceGUID, sourceName, sourceFlags, recipientGUID, recipientName,  recipientFlags, ...)
to this:
Code:
local function HandleCombatLogTriggers(timestamp, event, hideCaster, sourceGUID, sourceName, sourceFlags, recipientGUID, recipientName, recipientFlags, ...)

You could add the band-aid fix for offhand swings which I've posted in the official addon comment thread:

I digged into the code and found a workaround for the new "Off-Hand" swing merges (Mutilate, Frost Strike, et al).
The problem is actually twofold.

First, fixing the code to make MSBT aware of the new strikes:

FILE:
\AddOns\MikScrollingBattleText\MSBTMain.lua

FIND:
-- Setup the combat event.
(should be in line 1057)

INSERT BEFORE:
-- Fix "Off-Hand" swings
if (effectName and string_find(effectName, " Off%-Hand")) then
effectName = string_gsub(effectName, " Off%-Hand", "")
end


Now, the second problem is that the new swings obviously take longer to appear in the combat log. Thus we have to give MSBT more time to do the actual merger.

In the same file, find:
local MERGE_DELAY_TIME = 0.3

Change the 0.3 to 0.5.

Note that even with 0.5 the strikes will sometimes still show up as two seperate entries. Increase the value as you see fit.



These changes do not affect other combat parsers like Recount or Skada. It's MSBT only.
Also note that obviously this is for the English client only. For any other language, you'll have to change " Off%-Hand" to whatever it is called in your locale (the "%" escapes the "-" character, be sure to not forget it if you need to look for that character).

Confused >.<

Do I just download the old version or what? I'm so awful at trying to edit the addon itself.

Nope just delete the old folders you had and install these. that's all.

@sp00n
I will add it as a supplemental patch file as soon as I test it further. But, I'm really hoping Mikord didn't abandon wow. u_u

I will be putting out another update shortly with an update to Pet parsing, DK's "Off-Hand" swing merges and the way other addons communicate with MSBT (e.g. notifications from addons).

Hey I have two Problems!

First the combo points are endless spamming at my warrior, I know that a warrior don't have CP but Meat Cleaver skill and so on what is countered by 1CP 2CP 3CP, you can follow me?

Second, it is some times really lagging especially on big groups of course I tested it!

There any possibilities to fix that?

Sincerely

We don't know. Fortunately the author checked the Allow Updates & AddOns box, so we can post fan updates here. I was pleasantly surprised to see that; the license on Curse doesn't allow it, but here it does. Of course we'd all rather he come back though!

@Nallepuh
Has Mikord dropped MSBT? I don't know. I am not in contact with him.

@tylerdyr
Those problems have nothing to do with MSBT. The lag is because of your system or more specifically your processor's speed. As for the CP question I don't follow. MSBT is not a combo point addon and will not track this. If it's a stacking buff idk try adding spellid: 12950 to the triggers.

@Morsker
Thanks for being the real updater
