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.

I noticed some quirks with mobs with names that had hyphens in them; "Destructo-Bot 9000" (or whatever it was) would be reported as just "Destructo", etcetera.

Xark:

Yes, I added it recently. It's a question I've seen a few times and decided I should add it to the FAQ. I would really like to see Blizzard provide a CVar for disabling it as it's bugged me for a long time as well.


aKeio:

Are you trying to change the font size of the triggers? If so you'll have to modify the font size of each one individually as they are all overridden to a set value by default. Also, bear in mind that the font size applied is based on the normal font size if it's not a crit, and the crit font size if it is. Making it sticky only affects the animation style and does not cause it to be treated like a crit for font selection purposes.


keLston:

I'll assume you're only interrupting a single cast as opposed to spamming it in the middle of a bunch of identical caster mobs where multiple spells of the same name are in fact being interrupted.

Would you be able to verify if it shows up in the combat log four times? I suspect it is if you're seeing that behavior as I don't believe anything has changed to warrant MSBT creating events out of thin air.


sephra:

I added your question to the FAQ since it's been asked a few times. I'll copy it here for you:

How do I increase the font size to something larger than 38?

It is not currently possible due to a limitation within the game. Blizzard has stated that allowing larger font sizes is something they would like to implement at some point, but has not provided a time frame.

This issue probably is not MSBT's fault and probably is Blizzard's fault but just in case:

When using Fan of Knives with Throwing Specialization (Rogue combat tree) to interrupt a spell, I see the spell interrupt scrolled 4 times instead of 1 time.

I seem to have encountered a bug..

No matter what I do I can't seem to change the fontsize of 'stickies' (in lieu, criticals), regardless of scroll area,

I've reset the profile, tried manual overriding at the scroll area level, overriding at the event level.

It seems to be locked at a fixed size.

Help?

Hike:

There is an announcement on the main page about it. You need to update to the latest version.

Xark:

Check the FAQ here: http://www.wowinterface.com/portal.php?id=156&a=faq

In short, it is not.

Ensure you're running the latest version (5.4.63) , you don't have the healing threshold set too high on the spam control tab, and that you have healing events enabled on the events tab.

Blizzard must have changed the load on demand function calls around. It used to simply print a message that the module couldn't be loaded versus dumping an error.

EDIT: Confirmed. There is a bug in Blizzard's UIParentLoadAddOn call. I'll make some updates to avoid calling their routine.

Bug with latest version and 3.2

Since upgrading to 5.4.63 after the 3.2 patch release, every attempt to use /msbt now produced the following error stack:

Code:
[2009/08/06 21:49:23-65-x1]: FrameXML\BasicControls.xml:<Scrip...:2: attempt to index global 'ScriptErrors' (a nil value)
Interface\FrameXML\UIParent.lua:232: in function `UIParentLoadAddOn':

Once I looked at the relevant code section, I realised my nubish mistake - I had disabled the MSBTOptions module - but it seems to me that MSBT should fail a little more gracefully in the face of this sort of user stupidity.

Maldazzar:

Would you PM me the relevant combat log entries?

If you're not familiar with how to do that, type /combatlog to enable logging. Pop deterrence and capture the events that aren't being detected. Type /combatlog again to disable it. Logout of WoW and check for the Logs\WoWCombatLog.txt file.
