SimpleCombatLog  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.1.27327

== Introduction ==

SimpleCombatLog is a mod which replaces the default combat logs with shorter, colored ones.

The reformatted message removes all unnecessary words so that it's faster to read what information you want rapidly when the combat log is scrolling very fast, in addition it colors the names differently when the name is you, raid, party, pet or whatever, colors the spell damage by element type etc

Even though it's supposed to be simple, the message replacements are complete, which means whatever you can read on that combat log chat frame, SimpleCombatLog should be able to catch it and displays a shorter one.

Despite the name, SimpleCombatLog is very customizable. SimpleCombatLog currently supports the following customizations:
- Filters: filter by event, message type and unitid.
- Colors: set the colors for each spell element, unitid, etc.
- Format: all the displayed combat logs can be customized.
- Watch list: watch for specific name / skill in the combat logs, which has higher priority than Filters.


== How do the filters work? ==

There are 3 kinds of filter : event (Blizzard event), type (message category) and name (unitid).

First the events decide what messages will be received. If you disable an event, SimpleCombatLog won't receive messages belong to that event at all, which will improve performance. However, I suggest you do not touch these unless you're very sure what messages are fired from each event.

Second, when SimpleCombatLog receives a combat message, SimpleCombatLog checks what kinds of message it is, and checks the TYPE filter, if that type filter is not turned on, the message will be filtered. For example, turning off 'heal' filter will filter out all heals and HoTs.

"Gain" is something like "You gain 50 mana from Blessing of Wisdom" and "Your pet gains 50 happiness from Feed Pet effect".

"Drain" is "Someone's Viper Sting drains 50 mana from you." and "Your Mana Tap drains 50 mana from your pet, you gain 50 mana."

Hit, Heal, Miss, Cast should be obvious.

Finally, if the message have name(s), SimpleCombatLog tries to find out it's unitid, and only when the unitid match any of the NAME filter it'll be displayed. For example, to receive messages related to you and your pet, only turn on 'you' and 'pet' name filter, which in fact means the unitid 'player' and 'pet'.


== Usage ==

Type '/scl' in game to show a list of slash commands.

Alt-RightClick a ChatFrameTab to show the configuration menu for that ChatFrame. The settings in SimpleCombatLog are saved per-char, per-ChatFrame.

If you customized a ChatFrame to the way you like, you will want to import those settings to another character, in this case you can use the Theme features in SimpleCombatLog.


== Themes ==

A theme is the combination of all the settings for a ChatFrame. By default SimpleCombatLog loads the 'default' theme for ChatFrame2. You can set a ChatFrame to load another theme by the configuration menu.

If you did any modifications to the settings of a ChatFrame, you'll see the 'save theme' option in the configuration menu, which will save the current settings as a theme. Themes are global to all characters, so if you have a combatlog customization which wants to be used among multiple characters, you can save it as a theme, and have the characters to load that theme.

You may overwrite or delete predefined themes. But in the case of deleting a predefined theme, it'll be loaded back on the next time you log in your character. So if you have modified the predefined themes and want to have them change back to the default values, simply delete the theme and relog/reloadui.

How does watch work? atm SCL doesn't show when I pounce, fearie fire, and use other de-buffs on enemies.

Tried adding "pounce" "fearie fire" "bash" etc but doesn't work

If on my Paladin I bless anybody, my spell effect on them is noted in the log:

[You] Blessing of Wisdom [Joe] +10 .. etc..etc..

I can't seem to figure out a way to filter this out? The only gains I have filtered are myself and my pet, I Guess because it's an effect *I* made it counts as a player Gain?
Yes, BoW casted by you is a 'gain' with 'source' = player, so by the default theme BoW messages will be shown.
Did you try turning off 'gain' with source = player?

SCL can't, and I don't know if any addon does that. It probably can be easily done in a few lines of code though.

Overheal

Is there a way to have heals show the overheal amount (healing over the target's max hp)? I was using this mod via Nurfed pre-patch 2.0, and it displayed overheal which was really nice.

I tried fooling with the format myself, but my guesses as to the variable name were all wrong: #overheal#, #over#... Is there a list somewhere of all the variable names?

Thanks!

Conflict with Bongos?

Having a weird problem with Simple Combat Log and Bongos together..

Whenver I mouse over my combat log and use the Scroll Wheel to try to move my log up to see what might be off my visible window, instead of moving the log, it actually cycles through the Action Bars in Bongo.

I've looked for the keybindings and there doesn't seem to be anything bound to my scroll wheel other than Map Zoom.

I don't know if this is a Bongo Error, and/or a Simple Combat Log, so I'm posting it in both places... very strange that these two addons would use the mouse wheel (even stranger since neither Bongo nor SCL seem to even have an option for it)

Is it possible to show the damage of Mutilate ability as one string, for example:
[You] crit [Mob] *1500* (*1150* + 350)
I would appreciate such function very much.

Odd, it seems to work now. I thought it was still failing to work with the newest version.

Suppress default combat log is back (by trying to hook another Blizzard function which seems safe by my testing), however if I found that this function isn't safe to hook at any time, I'll remove this functionality again. So I strongly suggest you either use ChatFrame3 to show the SCL messages, or unregister the default combat logs manually via Blizzard ChatFrame menu.

A simple way to get a SCL window running is to hide your normal Combat log with the script:

/script ChatFrame2:Hide();

then create a new window and give it default settings from Simple Combat Log. If the author finds a way to get the normal combat log suppression working again, just delete the new combat window you created and use the following to show the original combat log:

/script ChatFrame2:Show();

Is there anyway to still remain synched to the raid but not get my totals reset when a vote to reset passes?

IMO ensuring that we get the same data should be what's important about sycnching, not that we keep the same totals or what we do with it.
