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.

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?

Im very new to messing around with the custom events in SCT, so I need a little help. Pretty sure this is the addon im looking for to do what I want.

Correct me if im wrong but I make a custom event and put them to "Event Type - Interrupts", whatever it is that I put in there will come out as in interrupt? For example, I made one for Strangulate, and put for event type-interrupt, target= player, source= anyone, so whenever I get Strangulated it will trigger the SCT message?

So if I made one for all of the custom ones that I needed and did them like I described above it will trigger the SCT message? Basically trying to make these trigger the SCT:

Strangulate
Pummel
Cheap Shot
Kidney Shot
Silence
Repentance
Hand of Justice
Silencing Shot
Gouge
Maim
Bash
Charge
Intercept
Mind Freeze
Kick

Reason Im trying to do this is I dont want all the other spam, hence trying to customize it to show only certain things. Not sure if what im trying to do is possible, but I had to ask.

Ever since the new format for entering custom events, I've been wondering if there's a way to filter specific things again, like you could do before when you had to edit them in the sct_events_config.lua file.

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?

One feature I would like in this is to be able to show when my abilities are almost off cooldown.

I use Whirlwind and Bloodthirst. If SCT could show a message like BT in 1secs this would work well. Not sure how well till I can actaully try it out. But I think it would be better than having some bar in the middle of your screen.

Is there a way to group spell dmg such as multiple ticks from Consecration, possibly in way similar to Milks?

Sword spec

I've been using SCT for years, it's one of my favorite mods.

I can't figure out how to get it to show extra attacks from sword spec any more though, is this still possible? I've tried every custom event I can think of to get it to work, but nothing seems to do it.

Thanks.

Fel armor keeps tick in my combat log as well.

Blizz must have broke something in the 2 hour maintenance.
The code suggestion didn't work for me either, until I turned my heal filter up one notch, it's because 0 can not be less than 0, only equal.

So, instead do:

Code:
if ((amount-overHeal) <= db["HEALFILTER"]) then return end
to handle the situation of 0 for your heal filter.

EavesDrop has a similar problem/fix (in EavesDrop.lua).

Thanks for this wonderful mod. It is very helpful.

I have noticed w/ the latest version (6.41) & since the WOW patch, that on my warlock, even when i am @ full health, SCT constantly shows healing procs from my Fel Armor. Not a BIG issue, but just thought i would bring it up.

Thanks again.

This has probably been asked before, but I can't seem to find a search function for the comments.

Is there a way to turn off the ability ready notices. Especially for my DK when runes come off cooldown, my screen is spammed by ready messages.
