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.

You can't current trigger on those. You'll be able to in 5.2 though.

Bebe:

You aren't running the latest version. Patch 2.4.2 removed some global variables I was making use of. It's fixed in the latest version though. Make sure you are up to v5.13 ("/msbt version" in game to check it).

Also, some people have been experiencing issues with WoWInterface serving up old versions, so clear your browser cache if you notice the zip file you are getting does not reflect the current version.

I keep getting an error message that's very easy to duplicate:

[2008/05/16 00:15:02-2-x2]: MikScrollingBattleText-5.11\MSBTMain.lua:928: bad argument #2 to 'string_gsub' (string expected, got nil)
MikScrollingBattleText-5.11\MSBTParser.lua:906: in function <...terface\AddOns\MikScrollingBattleText\MSBTParser.lua:876>
Just involves somebody else in group/raid looting mobs with coins on it. Have updated already, but cannot use it in raids atm with this glaring message appearing all night for each corpse looted.

BTW: Went back, re-downloaded the addon. trashed SV's, etc... Same deal. It also happens out of group, too as I just found out.

Setting up sounds via triggers

Mik - Hi there, this is working great so far, I have some for kidney shot, sheep, berserker rage, simply added the sound files to the sounds directory and then loaded it in a trigger and they work great.

There are a few that I can't seem to figure out that wont trigger, and those are counterspell, kick, pummel to think of a few. I am trying to set them as debuff like the other ones I have, however it's not picking them up despite it being in the combat log.

Any advice, it works flawless for the other triggers I have and i use them as debuff, put the wave file in there exact as its spelled and then make sure to trigger them on all classes.... is it because those wouldn't be classified as debuffs ?

letme know but great stuff so far

The trigger system documentation doesn't reference a search pattern option anymore, because the old way of searching is no longer possible due to the way Blizzard changed the combat log in Patch 2.4.

I think what you are seeing is the general lua search pattern reference I left in the documentation because it will once again be useful information in a future version.

Anyways, for the time being, you can't create triggers for that. I have been working on a new trigger system for MSBT 5.2 that will allow you to have the level of flexibility for these types of things.

Unfortunately, I've had little to zero free time lately due to RL events, but I haven't stopped working on it. It's just been taking longer than I'd like. The core of the system has been done for a bit. It's the GUI part that allows you to set everything in a usable manner that I have yet to finish.

Hey, thanks for the improved 5.13.

I read the readme.html for the trigger system information and see that 'search pattern' is still there. But why cant I find it in-game? Was it removed or anything?

Anyways, my question is, is it no longer possible to track damager received or dealt by team members? I can only think of using the search pattern feature to achieve this.

Thanks!

Lycannon:

I've had several people test the latest version and they are not having any issues.

I'm guessing you don't actually have the latest version loaded for one reason or another. Type "/msbt version" in the game to check. Also, when you download the zip file it should be named "MSBT5_13.zip".

I love MSBT. That said, is there any chance of getting some other icon for fire damage made by Enchant Weapon - Fiery Weapon? At the moment, it's the face of some weird guy... :-}

(ps: everything seems to work fine with latest version)

Re: Re: Item Gains

Oh, that is perfect! Since MSBT has that sort of API and this addon will pipe to it, no need to add bulk to MSBT itself. Thank you for the tip!

Thumbs up Item Gains

Would you consider adding item gains to MSBT? When I used Parrot before I found that very handy when doing quests like "Collect 500 boar spleens". The message was formatted something like:

Boar Spleen x 1 (4)

Where the boar dropped 1 spleen, bringing me to a total of 4 in my inventory.

If MSBT already does this, I must have completely missed it and could someone point me in the right direction? If not, would this be something you'd consider adding?

Oh, and that request aside, MSBT is working perfectly and I love what you've put together here!

Thank you,
--P

That's what I get for trying to rush the update out without fully testing it. I just uploaded version 5.13 to fix that.

Agengenist:

Try clearing your browser's cache. I mentioned that because I had to do that for WoWInterface to serve up the correct file.
I cleared the cache and got 5_12 vs 5_11 this time. Funny, this is the first time I'd ever downloaded this mod. Not sure how'd I would have cached anything.

Will test looting now to confirm for you.

Thanks!

UPDATE: Confirmed 5.12, turned Money Gains back on and NO PROBLEMS! Woohoo! You Rock!
