Scrolling Combat Text  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

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 notice this has been updated, thanks! One thing I would like is for you to increase the maximum value of the filters for health/power (same goes for EavesDrop).

All similar addons are currently having that problem, its a blizzard bug.

Since last patch, such procs currently don't appear in the combat log, so addons like SCT can't flag them up. This will only be fixed when blizz fixes the combat log procs.

Anyways, anyone know how to alter SCT to just filter out "Deep Freeze" from the special ability ready notifications? Doesn't seem to be a custom event tag for it, and I'd rather not turn ALL special ability ready messages off, I just don't want the notification for Deep Freeze.

Basically I'm looking to filter healing done from Fel Armor (as it's not really something I care about, need to know, or w/e) because it shows up all the time being as it heals for more than the filter I have set to filter out smaller hots, etc.

Can you still do that?
Just create a custom event for Fel Armor. Put in the "Name" and "Search" as Fel armor, leave "Display" blank and change "Event type" to Heals. No more spam. :P

There is a fix for the font scaling issue in the message frame - it was posted by Entropy44 on the Curse forum:

In sct.lua, change the "1.5" on line 743:

if icon and db["ICON"] then msg = "|T"..icon..":"..(db[self.FRAMES_DATA_TABLE][SCT.MSG]["MSGSIZE"]*1.5).."|t"..msg end

I'm using "1.0":

if icon and db["ICON"] then msg = "|T"..icon..":"..(db[self.FRAMES_DATA_TABLE][SCT.MSG]["MSGSIZE"]*1.0).."|t"..msg end


If you have heals appear over nameplates, I'd also make the following change in the sct_unitpos.lua file:

if( healthBar and not healthBar.SCTHooked and healthBar.GetFrameType and healthBar:GetFrameType() == "StatusBar" and not healthBar:GetName() and healthBar:IsVisible() ) then

Change to the following:

if( healthBar and not healthBar.SCTHooked and healthBar.GetObjectType and healthBar:GetObjectType() == "StatusBar" and not healthBar:GetName() and healthBar:IsVisible() ) then

From the 3.3 API changes on the Blizzard forum:

WIDGET API: GLOBAL
* The deprecated GetFrameType method has been completely removed (GetObjectType offers the same result)

Hi Guys, I'm wondering how to get SCT to stop displaying a message when a particular skill is ready, (Deep Freeze), I know that I can turn off "Active Skills" in the events menu, (which i have done) but that disables all skill notices, when its just the message for Deep Freeze I'd like to turn off.

Normally to get SCT to not display a message for a particular skill I'd create a custom event and just leave the Display text blank, however since Deep Freeze is an ability that only activates when the target is frozen, it isn't a "buff" or "power" or anything I can find in the type options.

Anyone know how to get it to stop displaying a message just for this ability?

Doesn't seem to work inside of instances, most likely due to the new cross-realm coding.

same problem for me. hope he/she will release an update for this problem soon

In 3.3 it seems as if there is a scaling problem with Icons and my placement/font-size is off. Is it just me?

Thank you for your time.

Nice add-on but...

Yeah nice add-on but I couldn't easily find out how to get rid of the stupid "boing" sound when Art of War procs. Back to MSBT for me. I like the simple interface but if I can't easily turn that off with a check or something then well...that's fail plain and simple. I turned off warning sounds in one of the option screens but that didn't get rid of it.

Sound for Kill Shot?

I can't for the life of me figure out how to add sounds to Kill Shot.

I see that it's registering as a skill that becomes active, like Execute. However, SCT is displaying it and I can't seem to create a custom event for Kill Shot that will play a sound.

I know my sound is set up correctly, but I guess the custom event isn't working. Have no idea what setting will work.

Any suggestions?
