BattleCry
Version: 3.0
by: Byterunner [More]
BattleCry is a set-up and leave mod that can be used for a variety of purposes. Its basic functionality is quite simple: Whenever an action is performed or an event takes place, it will automatically execute one of any number of "cries" that you have previously set up. These cries can be output to any of the standard grouping channels (say, yell, group, raid) as well as emoted.

Special thanks to Tarog and his creation of the mod WarCry, which inspired me to undertake this project.

BattleCry has two main components:
BattleCry_Core: The guts of the addon. This will execute cries based on the rules you've set up for them.
BattleCry_Editor: The editor used for setting up those rules.

For detailed instructions on creating cries and for the most recent test version of the mod, please visit: http://wow.levelonemagic.com
Almost all changes this time around are under the hood. BattleCry has been completely rewritten from scratch to make use of new scripting features recently made available and to decrease on memory used while running BC.

BC is now split into two addons: BC_Core and BC_Editor. BC_Core is required for BC_Editor, but BC_Core can stand alone without the editor (as long as you don't intend on making changes to cries).

*** IMPORTANT ***

This new version is NOT compatible with the old version with the exception of updating your data from the old to the new. To update from old to new, simply enable both old and new and enter the game. Type: "/battlecry update" and it will update your cries to the new version. Now camp and disable and uninstall the old version so that it will not conflict with the new version.

As always, if you encounter any errors don't hesitate to let me know.

3.0

Can you please update it for 3.0? I can't live without it XD
Also, event messages "You kill hostile" does not play, both if I kill mobs or players (I play on RU version, could this be a problem?)

I'm current using FuBar_Babel to switch between languages and it intercepts all BattleCry actions. When a cry language is set to Troll, and Babel to Orcish, it will always be executed in Orcish. This can be solved by including /script SendChatMessage("message here", "say", "language here") because that will ignore any user controlled language settings, but it'd be great if this was somehow coded into this otherwise excellent addon.

If you could post a walkthrough for say adding a cry when you interrupt an enemy cast I'm sure more people would be able to pick up and utilise this powerful addon ;0. Having spent the best part of 30m it's still not doing what I want so a tutorial would be extremely useful.

Thanks for the udpate! I didn't really want to find another mod to replace this one.

Changing BC_Initialize.lua:493 from BC_ActionManagement(actionName, 0) to BC_ActionManagement(actionName, 1) makes custom emotes trigger on "Completed" instead.

BC_CastPetAction has the same problem, but also begs the question; Where can I set events for these actions? I can't find any place in the UI where these are available, and controlling the pet doesn't seem to trigger the function.
I found a more updated version on Curse.com but I still have the problem where nothing is triggered.

/yell something else.

It wouldn't be good to use two separate battle crys as the two (or more?) cries might only make sense in context with each other.
I'm looking at adding cry chains, though I'm not exactly sure how I will make it work yet. Essentially, you'll be able to have cries that will only go off if the last cry made was "Cry X". Or if Cry X goes off, then no other cries can execute until Cry Y goes off. Again, I don't know how I'll implement the code for this yet but eventually I hope to have this be a workable feature.
