Version: 5.7.138
by: Mikord, Resike

Announcements:

  • Version 5.7.134 is updated to work with Warlord of Draenor Patch 6.0.2 and fixes the font preview issues.
  • If you are having issues with the fonts "resetting" on initial game load, update to Version 5.7.137.
  • Version 5.7.138 corrects issues with several triggers like Kill Shot and Hammer of Wrath.


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 haven't done any modifications to the mail system, so I can't really say for sure, but one event you might want to look at is UPDATE_PENDING_MAIL. From what I understand it fires when a new message is received, but it also fires under other circumstances such as leaving and entering an instance. You can probably filter out those extraneous circumstances though. I've also seen it reported that it doesn't always fire on every type of message (like one from the AH) and for that I don't know of a workaround (or if it is even possible to workaround).


Redspider:

MSBT doesn't have one by default, but you can always add it yourself via the trigger system.

I would think something like the following should do the trick:

Aura Application
Recipient Unit Affiliation - Is Equal To - Target
Skill Name - Is Like - .+ Poison
Amount - Is Equal To - 5


r1pt1de:

MSBT automatically chooses the locale based on the game's locale (naturally only if MSBT has that particular locale available). You can't arbitrarily change it because there are too many pieces that rely on the game's locale such as specific spell names for triggers.


neotron:

The quickest way to handle that is to add a Trigger Recently Fired exception of a few seconds to the Rune Strike trigger. That way it will only fire once within the specified time frame regardless of how many times it is encountered. I will update the next build with that change.

Using the most recent version I've noticed that I get a message every time Rune Strike is available. This happens even if Rune Strike was already available which makes it very spammy when AoE tanking - often Rune Strike will trigger multiple times per seconds.

Any way to only display a message when Rune Strike moves from inactive to active instead?

Quick question: Is there a built in Envenom alert, triggered when a rogue has 5 doses on a target? (SCT has this, I think. But if MSBT has it as well, I might give it a whirl.)

Although this has nothing to do w/ Combat Text, I've been designing my UI around MikScrollingBattleText as a universal "Notification" system, rather than just for combat text, and so far I'm enjoying it a lot.

I know you've written an API to allow other addons to pass messages through to Miks, and I've tried to do something on my own, but I'm just not skilled enough in coding to figure it out. I'm just trying to send a notification to MSBT when I receive a new mail message. Is this possible and if so how? The reason is I'm using postal for my mail needs and there is a current bug within Blizzards code from what I can understand that will not update the minimap button to indicate that you've read any mail - Therefor, the icon always shows up. I've wasted a lot of time running to the mail box only to find no mail. It's not a problem w/ just Postal, but all mail box addons that open the messages automatically. So that's why I'd like a notification (through MSBT) that I've received a new mail so I know for sure that there is something there.

Thanks

Deviant:

I've thought about introducing a delay for that purpose, but how long the delay would have to be depends on latency which can be anything from 50ms to a full second or more depending on the connection. I wouldn't want to delay a trigger that long since it would be counter to their intended purpose of a being a real time NOW! type of indication and even then wouldn't be guaranteed to work if the latency was larger than the arbitrarily chosen delay. It's not really practical.

The idea of checking the HP value might be a somewhat viable substitute, but I'll have to test the order of events since it's possible the HP isn't updated yet either. I've noticed that units die at 1 HP though, so it's a possibility depending on when that value actually gets set. Maybe an "almost dead" exception

I actually thought there might be a issue like that, or something lag related. I guess only way to make it work would be make "artificial lag" or some sort timer between the triggered event and the check for exception, but that would be somewhat unpractical and not worth the trouble I suppose. How about the hp exception ? Or is there some problem that when target dies it's hp is something else than numerical value (don't remember ever seeing someone's hp like "0/maxhp"....)?

ScytheZ:

That explains it. WoW's combat log implementation was significantly changed from version 2.4.3 to version 3.x (WotLK) and they are completely incompatible with one another.

All mods that make use of the combat log (which includes scrolling text type of mods, boss mods, etc) that have been updated to work with WotLK will not work with any game versions prior to 3.0.

The last released version of MSBT that worked on the WoW 2.4.3 code base was 5.2.14. I'll PM you a link to where you can download it as it's no longer available through the official distribution sites.


Deviant:

That is an unfortunate limitation of the way WoW reports the events. WoW reports auras fading from a target as a part of the process of the unit dying, but before it's actually dead. As a result, checking if a target is dead at the time the aura fades won't help, because well, it's not really dead yet (in other words, WoW has not flagged the unit dead yet). There is no API call to check if it's "in the process" of dying either.

Heya it's me again

First of all, thank you for adding the combat/offcombat exception, works like a charm.

Now for my question! Since I play a paladin, keeping judgements up on my target is pretty important stuff. I have a focus macro for that and I made a trigger that tells me if JoL on my focus target falls off. However, it also triggers when the target dies. I tried to add "Trivial target" exception but it doesn't seem to be what I was looking for (I'm guessing it's for critters or something?). So is it possible to add (yet another) exception to check if target is dead? If not, how about some sort of check for targets health? Exception like if target has <2% hp could do the trick.

And for ScytheZ, try to delete MSBT's saved variables... that trick has worked for me few times (On other addons tho... Worth a shot anyway I think).

2.4.3. and US version

yes i did but now i dont. ill enable it see what it shows

p.s. i found this while looking through wow's files in logs (framexml.log)


1/6 00:11:56.710 Loading add-on MikScrollingBattleText
1/6 00:11:56.710 ** Loading table of contents Interface\AddOns\MikScrollingBattleText\MikScrollingBattleText.toc
1/6 00:11:56.710 ...rface\AddOns\MikScrollingBattleText\MSBTProfiles.lua:951: attempt to concatenate local 'SPELL_BLOODSURGE' (a nil value)
1/6 00:11:56.710 ...face\AddOns\MikScrollingBattleText\MSBTCooldowns.lua:292: table index is nil
1/6 00:11:56.710 Interface\AddOns\MikScrollingBattleText\MSBTMain.lua:1439: table index is nil



p.s.2 the same error appears when lua errror reporting service is enabled. The error with Bloodsurge so it's a pre 3.0 patch problem? should i get an older version if so ..from where?

ScytheZ:

Interesting. Everything appears to be in order as far as installation is concerned. What version of WoW (patch, language) are you running?

Also, do you have lua errors enabled (Interface->Help)?

the real funny thing is that i tried also the SCT mod and SCTD and they do EXACTLY the same. Other mods work at least have the decency to give some errors..

ScytheZ:

From what you describe, it sounds like perhaps the options module is installed, but not the core module.

First, verify that the following two folders exist in your addons directory:

<WoW Folder>\Interface\AddOns\MikScrollingBattleText
<WoW Folder>\Interface\AddOns\MSBTOptions

Next, on your character selection screen, click the "AddOns" button and ensure that both MikScrollingBattleText and MSBTOptions are enabled.


skullripperdelux:

Make sure the sound files you've added the MikScrollingBattleText\Sounds folder are there before you start WoW or will not use them. Second, when you enter the name of the file, make sure you include the extension. In the example you provided, you should enter "maiden.mp3" without the quotes.


Enkidu:

The intent is not to prevent it from showing when an enemy casts a chanelled AoE spell on you, rather it is to stop the spam created when you cast a chanelled AoE spell. For example, when you, as a mage, cast Blizzard, you gain a buff of the same name followed by that buff fading once the channel is done. This behavior is rather odd and what is being filtered.

That said, upon reviewing the code, I can see how the current method would end up filtering debuff gains and losses by those specific abilities when an enemy casts them on you. I will update it to only affect those which you cast as intended.


Buio/blankStare:

Thank you for your posts.

Channeled AoE buffs/debuffs.

Hello Mikord, thanks a lot for the update.

About the channeled AoE suppression changes, is there any way to disable this new feature? Some (like me) might find it preferable to know in text that we're not under that RoF/Blizzard even though it seems to be very close, etc.

Edit: I found the toggle in MSBTMain.lua line 1454, thanks again!
