Scrolling Combat Text  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.66
by: Grayhoof [More]

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.

Bug with new version (4.11)

I just updated sct to the new version on my computer, and when I went to load the options pane, I received the error:
Interface\AddOns\sct\options.lua:124: attempt to index local 'sColor' (a nil value)
Also, the options panel didn't have any possible options in it, at least none that were visible.

Great addons

Nice work,man! Thanks a lot.
I'm from China,and It seem that this addon doesn't work properly for the Cwow.
my wow lags after using it .
I reinstall my system twice and I'm sure that the lag has nothing to do with the network connection.

SCT_Reckoning

I feel like I'm beginning a habit. Anyway, all of you Reckoning Paladins might want to check out SCT_Reckoning, as well. Just trying to keep all of the useful stuff in the same place.

SCT_ManaGain

For you casters using SCT, I might suggest checking out the SCT plugin I just wrote: SCT_ManaGain. I'd be happy to hear any suggestions or comments, as well.

Gray: add this to SCT so I don't have to keep mine up to date =p

I have this addon, and it is wonderful. Altough I didn' t find something I wanted to have. I have high mana regen/5sec gear and SCT doesn't display it as it displays the mana regen when I have the Blessing of wisdom on me. It would nice to have the added value. like +75 mana insted of +36 mana (bow). When I don't have bow on me it would be nice to have my own mana regen poping up in SCT. Maybe i didn't searched the addon carefully and it is available now. If anybody can help me it would very nice.

Thanks in advance

hi everyone, I know Grayhoof did write I answer things in at the wow-forums but I dont have access to the US-forums and wonder a thing, since I'm a priest I need to see all members status and health and god knows what. Then I thought of an idea that might make this easier, if I could have SCT pop up a msg when someone in my party/raid gets sleeped or feared. What would be nice to see is something like this, "*name_of_player* is sleeping" or "*name_of_player* is feared" is this possible to do ??

((if sct cant check for debuffs on other party members I have flexbar that can check that. for that I would just need something so sct would write the name of partymember1,2,3,4 (if such exist) ))
thanks
//Freche

((If someone that has access to the US-forums could post this it would be awsome))

SCT is a great mod.
I was wondering if there is anyway to add a \sounds folder and have .mp3 files play when a certain event occurs (like execute, overpower, etc)

Any ideas or help on how to do this and make SCT not bug out?

Thanks and appreciate your great work!

SCT is awesome. I am wondering if I'm doing something wrong, though. I'm a warlock and my spell damge does not display using SCT. Only the damage I'm taking shows up. In fact, none of the damage I deal with any of my characters shows up through SCT. Do I need to edit the sct_event_config.lua file to make these changes or is it not possible? If anyone has any help or suggestions, I'd love to hear! I'm running SCT 4.00.

Great mod, been using it for a long time. I just have a suggestion and a question.

Troll Beserking has changed, you nolonger need to have your mod say "Berserk now" after being the victim of a crit. The ability can be used at any time as of patch 1.9.

Is it possible to have SCT display what buffs were removed when a shaman casts purge? I cant seem to figure out how to use variables so it displays the removal of each buff without having to create an seperate event for every single buff that exists in the game.

Where is that fonts directory where you put your own fonts? It would be great to be able to change fonts from /sct menu. But thx for great addon!
