Version: 5.7.131
by: Mikord [More]
Announcements:
  • Version 5.7.131 fixes the font changing issue introduced by Patch 5.4.


Description:

MSBT is designed to be an extremely lightweight, efficient, and highly configurable mod that makes it easier to see combat information by scrolling the information on the screen in separate, dynamically creatable scroll areas. It is a replacement for Blizzard's Floating Combat Text and Damage output.


Features:
  • Lightweight and efficient design.
  • Scroll incoming damage/heals, outgoing damage/heals, and notifications in separate configurable scroll areas on the playing field.
  • Display player and pet cooldown completion alerts.
  • Display loot alerts with a total of how many are now in inventory.
  • Add triggers that will allow you to show notifications based on a variety of conditions.
  • Assign a sound file to play for events/triggers.
  • Dynamically create new scroll areas and assign any event/trigger to them.
  • Customize the position, size, animation style, enabled state, font style, font size, font outline, and opacity for each of the scroll areas.
  • Customize each individual event's color, font style, font size, font outline, opacity, output message, enabled state, and scroll area.
  • Set "Master Font" settings that will be inherited by all of the scroll areas and the events in them unless they are overridden at the scroll area or event level.
  • Merge AoE data into one event with cumulative damage/healing done with number of normal and crits specified.
  • Show overhealing amounts against yourself or party/raid members.
  • Color unit names according to their class (including CUSTOM_CLASS_COLORS support).
  • Color damage amounts according to damage type.
  • Show partial effects (resists, absorbs, vulnerabilities, etc) colored according to type.
  • Filter output information with a full suite of spam controls.
  • Load on demand options.
  • For mod developers:
    • Output your own scrolling messages with the MikSBT.DisplayMessage function instead of having to create your own frame and animation code. You can also use your own font by first registering it with MSBT via the MikSBT.RegisterFont function.
    • Create custom animation styles.
    • See the included API.html file for reference information.

and

MSBTCooldowns.lua, line 246. From:

function eventFrame:COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED(timestamp, event, sourceGUID, sourceName, sourceFlags, recipientGUID, recipientName, recipientFlags, skillID)

To:

function eventFrame:COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED(timestamp, eventtype, hideCaster, srcGUID, srcName, srcFlags, dstGUID, dstName, dstFlags, ...)

happens the same with damage meters, Its becuase of the chance in the API related to combat log.

Every addon that useds combat log needs to be updated aswell.

Is it possible to target specific Raid member by Raid id?

Like Recipient Unit Affiliation = Raid Member #1

I want to make it so every raid member have their heals number diplayed right by their frame. Is it even possible? :S

EDIT: If it's not yet implemented, i would be ready to make a donation for it to become available.

EDIT2: Looking at the code, i'm pretty sure it's not implemented. Trying to get it done by myself right now but i doubt i'll be able to. Help? ^^'

Is there some way I can change the layout of the CombatText?

Here... it would look kind of like the following:
74251
Starsurge

But with the spell icon to the left or right of it.

Even if I'd have to do a little bit of LUA coding, could you point me to area or areas I would need to modify? Thanks.

Only one thing I don't know to do:
+%a (%s - %n)
This does not have the same result in triggers as it does in events.
Is there any way to display the amount of Overheal I do with a spell in a trigger?
Any chance to have the spells named differently then the text displayed for triggers?
Cause is really hard to find them if all are called like +%a (%s - %n)

Edited for making it more clear.

Any plans to make the possibility to have the same functionality from Events into Triggers?

Re: Re: Unit affiliation not working

"Source unit affiliation is equal to you" tells the addon that you are the one casting fear. That is why is not working. You will want instead to select yourself as the recipient(destination) of the fear.
Thanks for reply, but there is no such option in "cast start".

There is:

Skill ID

Skill Name

Skill School

Source unit Affiliation
Focus
Mine
Outsider
Party Member
Raid Member
Target
You

Source unit Control
Human
Server

Source unit Name


Source unit Reaction
Friendly
Hostile
Neutral

Source unit Type
Guardian
NPC
Object
Pet
Player


That's all, and only "Source unit Affiliation can select "you" or "mine" as choises.

Is this a bug or does it just not exist that you can do what i want in this addon? Is there any other way to do it with MSBT?


Edit: Also i am sure i read that "Source unit Affiliation" in fact does mean something like "The affiliation target of the unit who is casting". Which i think means who he is casting it on. Although i don't understand the choise "Mine", but i have tried that aswell and it did not work.

It works as long as i don't add the "Source unit affiliation is equal to you" option. If i add that i wont see anything, and i kind of need it to be able to know when to spell reflect.

Anyone know why this is, or know how to fix it?

Thank You, works nice.
Only one thing I don't know to do:
+%a (%s - %n)
This does not have the same result in triggers as it does in events.
Is there any way to display the amount of Overheal I do with a spell in a trigger?
Any chance to have the spells named differently then the text displayed for triggers?
Cause is really hard to find them if all are called like +%a (%s - %n)

Edited for making it more clear.
