Version: 5.7.138
by: Mikord [More]
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.

Dual:

Events -> Outgoing Player -> Skill Crits The font icon (the A) can be used to control the size. The event settings icon (Wrench/Screwdriver) can be used to specify what scroll area you want it to go to.

The Scroll Areas can be used to create a new one, and the Configure Scroll Areas button is where you can move the area to wherever you want and set the individual animation speed for it.

Hey there,

thanks for this great addon! I really love it.

Right now, I'm struggling with the display of shadowbolt crits though. I'm trying to avoid pulling aggro from the tank due to unexpected large crits in The Eye. So I have to set up msbt in a way that the crits are displayed in a center area on the screen, a little larger than normal text and stay a bit.

At the moment the spell crits are displayed on the right side in a scroll area, jump a little and then stay a while, but for a too short amount of time and with a too small font size.

Oddly enough, in the preferences I can't find an event 'spell crit' to set up the desired way (scrollarea, color, time the message is displayed, Font size etc.). Though it should be there since the crits show on the right side, am I correct?

It would be great if you find the time to leave a quick note, if you have an idea how to accomplish this. *thumbsup

Thanks,
dual

Blabmoxkd:

I really need to update that video. It is out of date regarding triggers. The /msbt search stuff is no longer necessary.

The readme that comes with it is up-to-date though and it has some examples on how to create them. Specifically, check out the FAQ entry for it since it has step-by-step instructions on how to create one.


Zanthor:

MSBT wasn't really designed with that in mind, so it would take you a lot of work make that happen. I would imagine the spam would be pretty insane too. As far as what is limiting it to player damage only, check out the DamageHandler in MSBTMain.lua. There is also some logic in the parser itself to avoid wasting time on parsing events that don't pertain to the player or their pet that you would have to modify.

Perhaps an easier method would be to create a trigger to show all of a party member's damage. Naturally it wouldn't have all of the throttling and merging mechanics applied to it though.

Adding Party to the MSBT

I'd really love it if I could add my party's damage events to my MSBT... at this point you probably think I'm nuts, but I run 4 warlocks and it would be really handy for many reasons...

I'm comfortable digging into the code, however I must say that the inner workings of MSBT are beyond me, I've dug around for quite a while and can't seem to find all the right places to modify to make this happen, if you could point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it!

Thanks,

Zanthor

Question Attempting the "Advanced Search Pattern Trigger" from your video

Heya Mikord,

First off, awesome addOn. Hands down.

I was reading through the description page and watched the video you presented on the Vimeo website.

I'm trying to setup similar triggers (in the video @ 06:46 time), but for my fortitude buff.
Attempting the command:
/msbt search Fortitude
I am presented with a command help output.

My version number is 5.2.14, as per the output of /msbt version.
I'm curious, am I missing something in the download?
Did I miss something in the video to enable a debug mode?
I have the MSBTSharedMedia addOn installed also if that helps at all.

Veykos:

That is consistent with what I've heard on a few occasions. Make sure you bug report it with Blizzard. If you have no mods installed at all, and the combat log fails to report, it is a Blizzard issue they need to be made aware of.


keLston:

I wish I could give you something more concrete, but all I can say is that I, and others, have done extensive testing and the amount of time it takes to process events is on the order of microseconds. The merging function should actually help your issue because less text is being displayed than would be otherwise.

I have access to an old computer with onboard video (nForce4 chipset) that I used to test MSBT on, and it didn't skip a beat. So, I'm not sure why you'd be having any issues.

I'm thinking it's MSBT because when it doesn't cause a lock up, it will cause my game to slow down to what feels like it dropping to under 5 fps if a lot of text needs to be displayed.

For example, just to test it, I pulled 3 mobs on my rogue and popped evasion + blade flurry + SnD. What results would be a ton of spam of quick attacks, additional attacks from blade flurry, and a spam of dodges. The result was that despite the game and fraps still reporting that I was running a solid 60fps throughout the whole fight, it played out more like a slideshow.

And while my computer is no longer bleeding edge, it's fairly solid (C2D 6850, 8800GTX) so it would be difficult for me to say my computer is laggy. It's also pretty difficult for me to say my internet is laggy since I run fiber.

Disabling MSBT will, for sure, result in, at the very least, the slideshow effect when spam scrolling damage occurs. The issue occasionally occurred in SCT as well but usually only occurred under more extreme conditions like AoEing the mana wyrm packs in Magisters Terrace.

Is there a way to maybe change the way MSBT will render scrolling text? Could the issue be traced down to my forcing a level of FSAA and Aniso not normally accessible to the game via nVidia's control panel? It's odd because it certainly isn't an issue in more intensive games like Crysis.

Unhappy kk

Im going to try everything you said and will edit for results.


@Minou: No they are at 0 :>


EDIT: Tried what Mik said. No result.My combat log won't work when I summon a demon pet.At all.Before the summon everything is perfect..I guess installing a CombatLog addon will fix this.I hope..

TL;DR : Im using EnUS and the combat log wont work even with everything turned off.

Veykos:

I have seen this reported a few times now, but in every case the underlying cause has been that the combat log events just stop reporting (and it does this even when MSBT is not even loaded). So far it has always been surrounding switching pets too.

Please try the following and post your results:
  1. Once you notice the damage isn't being reported, look at the combat log and note if it is displaying anything. If you notice that the combat log is NOT reporting anything (as I expect you will find) then continue on.
  2. Logoff and disable MSBT.
  3. Log back in and repeat the same series of steps that leads to you not seeing damage reported.
  4. Look at the combat log once again and note that once again it is not reporting anything even with MSBT disabled.
  5. Log off and disable ALL of your mods.
  6. Log back in and repeat the same series of steps that leads to you not seeing damage reported.
  7. Look at the combat log once again and note whether or not is reporting with all mods disabled.

Edit: Also, please provide what language client you are using (even though it shouldn't matter).

Veykos: Cooldowns worked, Skill ups worked, but no Incoming/Outcoming Damage/Healing was shown. How do I fix that?
Verify your damage/heal spam threshold settings, maybe they are set to high.

Not working on warlocks?

Hello, Mik, and thanks for the great addon, but I have a strange problem. I play a warrior and a warlock, both raiding. I downloaded your addon and logged in my warrior first.Everything is ok and I love it. Then I logged on my warlock and no damage was shown.Cooldowns worked, Skill ups worked, but no Incoming/Outcoming Damage/Healing was shown. How do I fix that?

PS: Just to put some more light: I downloaded the version from WoWInterface.No LUA Errors are shown and this happens only when I summon my demon pet, after that I must relog and NOT summon any demons to make it work again.I use the same addons on my warrior and on my warlock.Hope that helps you awnser me ;/

KeLston:

It is highly unlikely MSBT is causing that. Based on what you describe, it sounds like latency issues. I'd be willing to bet you'd see the same issues with it disabled.

I currently seem to occasionally have a really annoying issue.

Sometimes, my game will stop showing scrolling text, and when that happens, a few seconds after, my game will pretty much lag to a slideshow crawl. It can last anywhere from a few seconds to until I restart WoW. If it fixes itself, i'll get the spam of the scrolling text that happened in that time period.

I tried it with only MSBT active and it still occurs so i'm pretty sure it's MSBT causing the problem.

This is pretty huge when it happens like mid Arena because that's an automatic loss pretty much.
