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.

Any chance I can set the output to whisper? I'm having a lot of fun with this addon relaying trade to guild chat.

Sorry Rosoaa, I don't think there currently is an output for whispering

The processed text is passed to LibSink (which also controls all the outputs) and I don't have any control over that
One of the cleaner solutions could be to make a feature request ticket for it, or rather provide a patch with your code (note: the author is lazy)

The other solutions are kind of ugly .. plus relaying chat isn't "officially" supported but kind of facilitated
I personally really liked the chat relaying functionality, but sometimes messages went MIA or got severely butchered, so it's kind of unofficially supported .. (I tried to at least prevent infinite/spam loops where it relayed your own chat over and over) ><
A workaround could be to output to and use custom channels though*

Get this error with 5.1
And the Addon does not work at all anymore.
Not responding to slash commands and DataBroker function broke as well.

Code:

Hi again Xarl, and thanks for reporting the error. It should be fixed now in the v0.7.0 release (I replaced all instances of BATTLEGROUND to INSTANCE_CHAT)
