Scrolling Combat Text  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 6.65

Please post all errors and suggestions on http://grayhoof.wowinterface.com/ using the provided forms.

Be sure to check out my simple but enhanced combat log EavesDrop

Also check out SCTD if you want SCT to show your damage.

What is it? - A fairly simple but very configurable mod that adds damage, heals, and events (dodge, parry, windfury, etc...) as scrolling text above you character model, much like what already happens above your target. This makes it so you do not have to watch (or use) your regular combat chat window and gives it a "Final Fantasy" feel.

What can it do?
- Damage messages
- Heals (incoming and outgoing) and Overhealing (with healer ID's), with filtering for small heals.
- Spell Damage/Resists and Damage Type
- All "Miss" events (dodge, block, immune, etc...)
- Custom Colors for all text events
- Config file to setup custom events (self and target), capture data, and display it.
- Debuff/Buff gain and loss Messages
- Low Health and Mana Warnings with values, and optional sounds
- Rage/Mana/Energy Gains
- Enter and Leave Combat Messages
- Rogue Combo Points, 5 CP Alert Message
- Class Skill alerts (Execute, Overpower, CounterAttack, etc...)
- Honor, Reputation, Skill Gain
- Eight Animation Types (Verticle, Rainbow, Horizontal, Angled Down, Angled Up, Sprinkler, Curved HUD, Angled HUD)
- Four Fonts
- Two seperate Animation frames, each with their own settings. Assign any Event to either.
- Ability to flag any event as critical or as a text messages
- Sliders for text size, opacity, animation speed, movement speed, and on screen placement (with custom editbox)
- Lightmode, for when you care most about performance (at the loss of a few features).
- Now Based in Ace3.
- Settings saved per character by default, but supports all Ace3 Profiles
- Load/Delete settings from another character. Load built in Profiles.
- Localized to work in almost all WoW clients.
How do I use it? - First unzip it into your interface\addons directory. For more info on installing, please read install.txt. Now just run WoW and once logged in, type /sctmenu to get the options screen.

SCT_EVENT_CONFIG.LUA is used to setup custom message events. Please open up the file (notepad, etc...) and read the opening section to understand how to use it all.
PLEASE NOTE - THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FILE IN SCT. IF YOU DON'T READ IT AND USE IT, THEN YOU ARE MISSING OUT ON A TON OF WHAT SCT HAS TO OFFER IN CUSTOMIZATION

/sctdisplay is used to create your own custom messages.
Useage:
/sctdisplay 'message' (for white text)
/sctdisplay 'message' red(0-10) green(0-10) blue(0-10)
Example: /sctdisplay 'Heal Me' 10 0 0 - This will display 'Heal Me' in bright red
Some Colors: red = 10 0 0, green = 0 10 0, blue = 0 0 10, yellow = 10 10 0, magenta = 10 0 10, cyan = 0 10 10

FAQ
How do I get My Crits or My Hits to show? I would suggest you get SCTD: http://www.wowinterface.com/download...fo.php?id=4913

I don't understand what the 2 frames are for! - Each frame lets you set different features. So you can set frame one using Sprinker animation and Default font, while frame 2 can be using Veritcle animation and Adventure font. You can then assign each event to a specfic frame using the radio buttons next to the events.

There's too many options. Help someone new see how things work! - Try out some of the new built in profiles. While on the options screen, click the "Profiles" button. At the top of the window will be a listing of some default profiles to try out. Maybe you'll fine one you like or it will spark some ideas for you to try.

How do I change the fonts? - You can now select from many fonts on the options page. You can also change the font of message and apply the font to the in game damage font used for your damage (requires relog)

I don't like friendly nameplates on. How do I make my heals appear over who I heal? - Friendly nameplates have to be on in order to show your heals. SCT will turn them on if you turn on the option, but you must manually turn them off if you don't like it (see Target keybindings).

I don't like the new spell icons, how do I turn them off? - There is an option to turn them off under the spell tab.

I'm having difficulties setting up my sct_custom_event triggers for the new combat log. None of these events will trigger

[1] = {display="[Icy Veins]", type="BUFFSELF", search="Icy Veins", r=255/256, g=255/256, b=0/256, iscrit=1, icon=1},
[2] = {display="[Icy Veins]", type="FADESELF", search="Icy Veins", r=205/256, g=173/256, b=0, icon=1},
[3] = {display="[Spell Haste]", type="BUFFSELF", search="Spell Haste", r=255/256, g=255/256, b=0/256, iscrit=1, icon=1},
[4] = {display="[Spell Haste]", type="FADESELF", search="Spell Haste", r=205/256, g=173/256, b=0/256, icon=1},
[5] = {display="[Combustion]", type="BUFFSELF", search="Combustion", r=255/256, g=255/256, b=0/256, iscrit=1, icon=1},
[6] = {display="[Combustion]", type="FADESELF", search="Combustion", r=205/256, g=173/256, b=0/256, icon=1},

I'm not sure what is causing the interrupt error, but I have posted what I think is a workaround fix to the Ace site. You can grab it there or what a couple days till I post a 6.01 here.

Thanks

I happened again today, and to be honest I was just casting a fireball. But based on Autosear's response, I'm pretty sure it was interrupted by a silence. We were fighting in the Blood furnace and you get silenced in there quite a bit. I will try and pay more attention next time, but it happens so randomly. (At least for me anyway).

Love the mod

Thanks

I was wondering what custom event I would need to stop Vamperic Touch spam, I know there is a mana filter but I'd rather not use it, since I do want to see mana gains from Judgement of Wisdom. There doesn't seem to be a powergain type for the custom events.

Grayhoof,
I can reproduce the error Serfie posted. If I cast Greater Heal with my priest and I am interrupted by a rogue's kick, the error occurs every time.

My addons:
SCT 6.0a
Bongos3 beta5
OmniCC
x-perl 2.40
metahud
Omen2

Thanks for your work on this mod, I've been using it for years

Stubhorn, I think another mod must be doing that. SCT_Cooldowns maybe? You should be able to configure where it sends it to SCT inside its menu.

Serfie, I'm not sure what's causing it. Can you give me some idea when it occurred? I can probably code around but it helps to know whats causing it.

Iceyshadows, I'll look into that.

Good addon. I've used this one not long since I started playing a couple of years ago.

I have a feature I'd like to request.

Would it be possible to add scroll bars to the "Font" menus to choose between the different fonts for the frames?

Over time, I've been getting more and more fonts that I love added into my sharedmedia collection. As a result, the list of fonts is now bigger than the height of my screen and I can't select the 1st few after the cut off point. even if the drop down menu is all the way at the top, I still have too many fonts to list Shouldn't be too difficult as a lot of other addons, have had scroll bars added.

Not able to change frame for certain events...

Hey Grayhoof,

First thanks for all your work on this mod, it is definitely a staple addon for thousands of players. Always easy to use and updated in a timely manner.

My question concerns the placement of events into certain frames. Here is my example, when my cooldowns are up an event (maybe active skills?) sends a message to frame1. I want it to send the info to the message frame, but when i select that frame for the output it continues to show in frame1.

Maybe I am mistaken on which events cause which messages, or it is a bug, I'm not sure. Can you help me figure this out?

Thanks again.
