SimpleCombatLog  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.1.27327
by: rophy [More]
== 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.

See http://files.wowace.com/sw-s.html for updates to SimpleCombatLog

I should that, while the last update to SCL was two weeks ago, it may not be functional with the new combat log changes yet. I haven't a chance to play on 2.4 live yet.

Hey I figured it out:

TO ENABLE SCL ON MULTIPLE CHARACTERS

By default it seems to be turned off on every character other than the first one you load it with.

To enable it:
1) Load a character other than the one its working with
2) ALT+RightClick on the combat log tab (NOT the main chat window unless you want your messages there).
3) Load a theme (I dont have a theme so I just load "default"
4) Ensure that "Supress Combat Log" is clicked.
5) Reload your UI.
6) ????
7) Profit!

Hopefully this helps... would be nice if the default profile was enabled on all characters by default.

I am having the same problem as others on this thread...

SCL only works on the first account I log into after I install it, it does not work on any of my other characters. The normal Blizzard combat log appears for those accounts.

How do I fix this?

Does anyone have any idea if it's possible to show reflected damage from the Warrior spell reflection ability?

I've tried a bunch of stuff, but it either doesn't work or shows all damage on the target and not just the reflected damage.

Pet Happiness Gains in a different window

Hi,

I'm not a noob but I have to admit that I wasn't able to figure this out.

How can I configure SimpleCombatLog to show Happiness gains for my Pet in a different Window? I mean: it's ok that "combat" events show up in the Combat Log, but I want that "Pet gains 35 happiness" shows in my main window.

Thanks and sorry if this question has already an answer somewhere in another post...

Az

Hi there,

I was wondering if it would be possible to list the HP and mana remaining for certain events in SCL.

For example:

[Some Boss] Melee hit [You] 100 (HP: 1000)
[Some Boss] Melee hit [You] 200 (HP: 800)
[Some Healer] heal [You] 250 (HP: 1050)

The same can obviously be done for mana. This would be extremely handy in trying to figure out how spikey damage taken is and which shot killed you, and how much more HP you would have needed to survive.

Thanks for a great mod.

hmm....... it seems BoS regen no longer shows on the Blizzard's combat log since 2.1

SCL/SCT catches messages from the combat log, so they don't show BoS regen when the combat log doesn't show them.

Is there a way to export the combat log in the SCL format? When I export, it's in the native one, and I have to reparse it.
