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 had the same problem. After checking here and there it appears OneView was guilty for that. If you have it installed try desactivating it, SCT should work.

SCT 5.0 > WoW FCT

Seriously, WoW default Floating Combat Text doesn't have the option to set the size, colors and speed. Without speed text animation control is hard to catch the message when it pop up. The reason it's because your Frame Per Second. If you are running 20-30FPS the FCT will performe poorly.

SCT 5.0 is the best you can customize and adjust speed. Many friends ask me: should I delete SCT? I say you should keep that and update it to SCT 5.0.

My first experience on FCT, was bad. Small text and the animation just bypass very fast didn't have the time to catch it.

So I recommended SCT is still best! Addons Developers > WoW Interface Developers

Pet Growl Showable?

Is there a way to get Pet Growls displayed? I checked the config.lua for a line to un-comment, but I'm not finding it. I'm not sufficiently .lua savvy to try capturing the event title using debug mode and then build a line to add to the config file.

omg wth

lol ok i get the reason for load on demand for the options menu plz ignore my previous rant i was ticked off at the time... anyways is there anyway to either make the SCT words moveable along with the frame cuz it just sits there in the middle of the screen or better yet just remove them because if im in the SCT options menu I obviously know what it is....


Thanks for your time,

Moldavia

Please do not post a comment asking for help.

Even though they told me this before posting, I couldn't find any other place... so I decided to wing it here still...

This mod was great mod when I started using it... (3 thumbs waaay up)... but since I re-installed WoW, I can't for the life of me get it to work. Every action I do gives me a SetFont or GetFont error concerning a "nil value"...

Any solution?

Nightfall

Is there any way to make Nightfall (the Warlock talent) appear as a Crit or Message? I can't see which category it comes under in the options
