ChatMod

Version: Rev 138 v2
by: TULOA [More]

Discontinuing this for ChatMod2... See Here



ChatMOD is a universal Chat Enhancemend.
Original this was called "Sol's Color chat Nicks - SCCN" but after many people told me that they hardly find this mod I decided to rename it to it's actual purpose.

So What can ChatMOD do for me ?

ChatMOD provides many features which makes chatting / communication InGame much easier. To grab some examples: It color the nicknames of chat participants in their class color, stores this information in a database, provide modificaton of the chatframe like mouse scrolling, button hiding, chat editbox movement, channel name striping, channel name shortening, text highlighting, sound notifications, and many many more. The target was to build one Addon which contain the most important chat enhancements. So for the user it is easier to update one Addon than updating 10 addons after each patch.



Will this Addon be Updated steadily ?

More or less, Yes. But as every Addon author I'm doing this in my sparetime besides the Gameplay itself. So on first priority is my Druid on EU-Aegwynn but because I'm started to develop this Addon in the beginning for my own purpose I will update it as long as I'm plaing wow. And at the moment I don't have any plan to quit So If you have any Suggestions or wan't to offer any support, feel free to contact me.
I Tuloa have taken over for Solariz who can no longer maintain the mod. As such I will update this mod whenever I can for any issues I see. See below for reporting bugs and such.

-It only shows one digit. I will likely modify it later to show one or two digits.
-And obviously if the time is two digits it will still show both. Only affects one digit times.

Bug Found - Fix in Progress

For those of us using DBM with this mod I noticed the icon or whatever it uses for the update URL is broke.

I will try to see if it is an icon and fix it if it is. I will have to figure out how to make it till when the url starts so it will take time.

I am still looking into the problem that I started to notice a little bit ago Shift+Clicking names in chat for use with the friends list and such.

Hopefully that wont be too hard to fix but otherwise it may not get fixed.

Upcoming Update

Redid a small part of the Sound Playing area to hopefully make it faster.

Cannot do the change to the system making it know what is in there because they took out the option to read files in the folders and such. Likely due to cheating or something. So those plans are out.


I have however updated it to work in this patch or at least updated the TOC. I am going to be working on a bug with TRP2 that I am noticing and it could take a bit to fix.

Yay blizzard broke the Use Editbox Keys without <ALT> feature.

Nothing I can do about this folks... Just have to wait and hope they fix whatever it is they broke.


Sidenote:
Working on TRP2 compatibility... I got it to get rid of the Hplayer: line but currently broke the highlighter popup notifications and in chat >Name< feature as well. So I am still working on it.

I am going to post an update later to fix the "seen" highlighter for monk names tomorrow. Can't believe I thought the coloring was automatic somehow lol.

Got deeper into coding addons but got slightly stuck with not as much spare time because of work. I will hopefully have time to resume on the above issue sometime within a couple weeks.

Noticing an issue with chat lately...

I think its time for an overhaul on the code. This will take some time. With this overhaul will come the following:
> Better hyperlink detection and underlining
> Better Name detection and coloring.
> Will be compatible with other addons hopefully like TRP2. (Or at least TRP2)

Maybe more as I redo it but that will come as time will tell.

ChatMod2

Ok I have been working on this a while and I am still working on it but I just got the core workings of ChatMod2 working.

Its a rewrite of this code to optimize it and hopefully improve compatibility. I will be getting you guys a link when its actually complete but it is on here if you want to test drive the core chat for the moment.


Make sure you mind its list of things that work and dont at the moment.

ChatMod2

I have enough confidence it is in a working enough state to pass off for the moment.

There is a slight bug with DBM that will be fixed before long.


ChatMod2 is in its late Alpha/Early Beta phase and is ready to replace this version.
You need to completely remove this and go to ChatMod2. I may work on an import scenario later but for now the database that I know of is incompatible and I changed the settings storage so it is not compatible. Nickname database may work but a change would be required and I haven't tested it yet.

Edit - To Clarify: You do not have to remove the saved variables folder just use the new replacement addon in place of ChatMod. When I do get an import it will parse all the saved Nicks. It will import the other features but by then will likely not be needed to be ported because you will have set it up. All import options will be pickable for the core aspects of the mod. You wont be forced to import any options and can choose of course just the ones you want. I assume the only use will be the nicknames and channel renames.


I will edit Curse later but for now I will put it up here.
