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.

It's coming from the width of the scroll area itself.
But they have the same width, that's why I don't get it

Hi, can you tell me where this 40px difference is coming from? (see pic)

http://i42.tinypic.com/2qmd7pf.png

I thought setting them to -400 and 400 would give them the same distance from the center but apparently it doesn't. Any ideas?

<3 MSBT!

With regards to what Nubsy has posted, disabling the Static and Notification scroll areas also does not seem to have an effect on Trigger messages such as "Hammer of Wrath!" and the "+-Combat" messge. Maybe there are more, I haven't tested it, yet.
That said, I'd like to vote for "disabling a scroll area" = "turn off all messages in that area". Thus one can consistently turn off individual areas in one place instead of having to turn switches in several places.

Psychophan7:

I don't believe there are combat log messages for any of those (except maybe the stopcast/cancel). If there is no combat log message, triggers can't detect it.

I know that cast start events did not show the recipient when the new combat log was first introduced, but it might have changed now. I'll have to test it and add the recipientUnit condition to Cast Start events if it has. It's not possible in the current version though.


Lomir:

If you're talking about the damage above the enemy's heads you can check General->Game Damage to cause it to enable between logins. If you're talking about the default incoming text, MSBT is designed to replace it and as such it will always disable it.


Nubsy:

Are you trying to turn off cooldown notifications? Disable them under the cooldowns tabs. Cooldowns ignore the status of the scroll areas, so that's probably what you're seeing.


Mikari:

An option to control the icons per scroll area is something a few people have asked for, so I'll add it to my ever increasing list. The same goes with editable partial effects.

I can't do anything about the maximum size though. 38 is the largest size Blizzard's API allows without resorting to text scaling. Text scaling makes it look terrible and hard to read.

Is it possible to have an option to enable/disable icons per scroll area? I'd like to have icons for the incoming and outgoing areas but not for the static or notification areas.

Would it also be possible to increase the font size slider so the max size can be larger, I'd like to show sticky events in the notification area with a larger font than it currently allows.

Is it also possible to change the format of how it shows overhealing, blocked, resisted damage etc, instead of having it in <> would it be possible to change it to ()

Possible Bug?

I'm not sure if it is MSBT that is causing my problems but I'll try to explain it best as possible. I only use MSBT for the notification area and I have it checked to show the default blizz combat text, but every time I log out or restart it automatically turns the blizz text off even when I turn it back on lol. I love this addon just not all of it . Would be nice not to have to turn the blizz text back on every time I log on. Thanks

Is it possible to display these messages?
Spell push back
Spell being /stopcasted
Spell cast time

As a tank, these would be useful to know when I can expect the heal. As a healer, it would clue me in as to not waste mana by overhealing.

EDIT: Also, is it possible to get who the target of a spell is before it lands? There are a few people in my guild who click-cast, so they could be raid healing while having the boss targetted, and any cast monitors will only show them as casting at the boss, not their actual targets.

For triggers you can set the recipient unit affiliation to you, but I suspect you're talking about the general Buff Gain and Buff Fade events. There is not an option to do that for those.

Is there an easy way to distinguish with buffs from me and from other people, so that only my buffs (starting and fading) are shown in MSBT instead of all?
