FAQ
  • I can't enable Blizzard's Floating Combat Text!
    That means it was disabled in the Blizzard Interface menu; you'll have to enable it.
    (Note that if you use MSBT, it will disable Blizzard's FCT)
    Code:
    Interface -> Floating Combat Text -> [X] My Floating Combat Text
  • The class color options are not showing up.
    If Class Colors is loaded, then SCR will let that addon handle the colors instead.

  • I don't see the "PopupMessage" output.
    That output is provided by Prat 3.0

Credits
Credits go to the authors of their respective addons/libraries. Thanks Neutronimity and Darkshåman for their help with testing.
SCR is inspired by Social_SCT and Freeaze.

I also think this is a great idea/feature. I would add this "show only in combat option" but, I've just recently (today actually) traveled from Europe to the US to attend my brother's wedding.

Sadly, I currently don't have access to WoW (or a computer/laptop that I can install it on), so I won't be able to update ScrollingChatText until I come back after a month.

Otherwise I have to write untested code, without actually knowing whether it works.

I did look for authors that wanted to help update or maintain it in this thread though ..

Hi Xarl, this is indeed true. I found the bug and it will be fixed in the upcoming v0.6.0 release. soon™

Thanks, working on it again now, here is a preview for v0.6.0
  • Emotes should now be static messages, similar to Achievements (without timestamp, channel, etc)
  • Item Links in Real ID chat are now colored by quality (previously only colored white)
  • An option to see your outgoing (Real ID) whispers (currently only received whispers are supported)
  • More optional chat types: e.g. Monster/NPC Yells, System, Target Icons
There definitely is room for other useful features, like anti-spam (BadBoy) and chat filtering, but I'm not experienced enough and have other (easier) stuff I'd like to work on more =(

I have to disappoint you .. let's just say I gamed too much WoW and L4D2 recently, instead of addons
  • Still need to add more chat types
  • I was additionally working on some basic options to configure the scroll speed, font size, and positioning of the "Blizzard Floating Combat Text"
Enrolling in school next week, so that's my deadline

You mean, that it "reroutes/broadcasts" any chat into Officer channel instead?

That should be possible under
Code:
Output -> Channel -> [Sub section] Officer Chat
You can only have max 1 current output though, and no idea how multiple outputs would be implemented

I want officer chat to show up in my UI Errors frame. I notice you have basically every other channel, but officer.

Oh, sorry for the miscommunication. Officer Chat falls under the Guild Chat option, so if Guild Chat is enabled, then Officer Chat should be too (provided your rank can see Officer Chat)

I thought it would be more simple/condensed this way. Same for Real ID whispers falling under normal whispers

Guild chat is very spammy, but officer chat is very important. Can you make them a separate option?
