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.

If not i have no clue what is happening then.
Thanks a million for this <3

Again it would probably be possible with a custom event.

Look for an "Aura Gain" on the enemy option, however unless ya tell it only to look at ya focus or your target, I don't think it can diffrentiate between your snares and others, so in groups itl be spammy.

Would it be possible to include an option to show when your targets are snared?

Default Blizz Ui has this, but to enable it you need to use the default floating combat text (and doing so means it will overlap with SCT).

Hey, I'm fairly new to SCT and was wondering how the hell I can be alerted when my Divine Storm resets itself. I'm talking about when my t10 2 piece bonus, http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=70765 , activates and takes divine storm off cooldown. Any help would be greatly appreciated so I don't have to stare at my action bars.

Yep, Make two custom events, one for aura gain, and one for aura lost, set them both to the mindflay buff, and leave the display text totally blank. Then it won't show anything.

It did it with blink also for me as a mage, a silly lil buff that says "blinking" for a split second while it happens, all I did was make two events, one called +blink, the other called -Blink, with no display text, and boomft, gone.

Does anyone know how to, or if is possible, to make a custom event for entering and leaving combat? I want to add an audio que to the events. Any help would be great. Thank you!!

P.S> I know you can have SCT show when you are entering or leaving combat - I also want some sound with it.

I would also like to see that, particularly i now have enough health that Fel Armor ticks constantly. Or possibly the ability to filter a particular spell.

but now it doesn't seem to show that for me even tho I have everything enabled. am I mistaken here? wasn't SCT able to show this kind of thing like for example "Bladestorm is ready!"
Look at optional files.

Grayhoof where are you?

Just wondering where Grayhoof has gone?

Have been waiting patiently for an official author update for SCT. Although I did install the "user" modified version and used it for a short time, I'm still having issues when this add-on is enabled during game play since patch 3.3. Such as intermittent disconnection, as well as custom event sounds don't seem to work with the in-game sounds path. Having disable this add-on, for now, the disconnection issues have stopped. Also I do use the SCTD add-on too.

Hope to see an update soon as this is one of my favorite add-ons, which I simply prefer over the in-game scrolling combat text.
