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.

Again...please post bugs on my portal not here.

The bug is most likely a problem with the French translations. Someone that knows French will have to look at the them. One problem could be is they named two translations the same, which would cause errors.

SCT Attacker Notifier?

I've seen a couple of pvp videos showing SCT displaying the name of the player attacking you.

Such as: "-1375 (Attacker'sNameHere)"

I've tried to find an option that enables this, but have had no luck. Does anybody know how to do this?

Oh, and something I'm more interested in is how to display the spell name that you're getting hit by, beside the damage it dealt.

Such as: "-1450 (Mortal Strike)"

Anybody know how to do this, too? I know it works for SCTD with the damage YOU deal.

I am having troubles saving a profile for my main character, which is a Tauren Shaman. Everytime I log into my shaman, all the settings have been reset to default. However, other characters seem to be fine.

What I have done is did a complete erase of sct and sctd and the save variables in the WTF folder. I am still having this problem. Any ideas what is happening?

EDIT:Okay, I seemed to have fixed it. It seems like there was a conflict with SuperInspect.

Reset your options. If it still doesn't work, something isn't installed correctly.

Dacian, there isn't a way to control the volume from these events separate from other sounds. You'd have to play with the games built in sound options, but not sure it will achieve what you want.

Bregar, if can tell what the combat log says when those proc I can help you with the code to create the events.

daik, thanks. The official thread hasn't been used in a long time so I've just decided to let it die, so I'll remove it from this site next update. People seem to always post their own separate SCT thread of the official forums so I just have to search for them every few days and help where I can.

I am a priest looking for help with a couple custom events.
I would like to show when Surge of Light or Holy Concentration procs in big red letters in frame 2 (I use frame 2 to show heals and overheals).
Could anyone help me with some code to insert?

Is there a way to control the volume of the low mana / low health sounds? I find them incredibly loud.. or perhaps are they tied to an ingame sound adjustment (like ambient sounds or something).

Mikari, it was only an issue if you happened to turn on the event name listing option is sct_event_config.lua.

I noticed the latest version lists a chat tab tainting fix, what was the extent of the tainting, is it something that could have caused pet actionbar problems?

Trying to troubleshoot my pet bar not showing in combat randomly.

First of all, thank you very much for your add on. I can certainly see how this can help a mediocre player (i.e., me) better understand everything that is happening, as well as benefit veterans who need all the information instantly in order to react to situations as they arise.

I have been trying to structure the addon to act similar to that of a high level pvper I saw online, but I thus far been unsucessful. There are a number of things I still need to figure out but I am sure I can figure it out in time. That said, after three or more hours fiddling with the add on, I figure it wouldnt hurt to ask for a little help.

1. EDIT: Figured it out myself

2. EDIT: Discovered a check box I shouldnt have marked

3. EDIT: Now a moot point

Oh, all questions answered. Thanks for the mod man!
