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.

Thanks!
I tried this also and can't get it to work.
I tried "Cast Start" and "Buff Application" and grounding totem doesn't show.
The other 6 triggers that I have work fine. I have put as spellname "Grounding Totem" so it should be fine.

Also when my water elemental fades when the 45seconds ended it says my pet is low health.

Anyways, thanks for the update Mik. <3 the triggers!
Awesome work!

Thanks for the update Mik. I have one request on the trigger system. Can you add a checkbox that enables a trigger only to activate on friendly units? For example a trigger that warns me when my healer is blind or sap etc, but that doesnt react when a hostile is blinded or sapped.

Phanx:

#1 and #2 have been taken care of with version 5.11. As Liolin pointed out, #4 can be done with the Skill Substitutions option.

As for #3, you are correct in how it operates. Make sure you don't also have the 'Hide Skills" checkbox enabled on the "Spam Controls" tab. I suspect that is the case.

#2 - Cooldown notifications for spells parentheses in their name show an additional set of empty parentheses. Example: "Mangle (Bear) () Ready".

#3 - The "exclusive skill names" option doesn't seem to do anything. From reading the tooltip, my understanding is that this option should hide the skill name if an icon is available, so "[icon] Maul - 1200" should just show "[icon] 1200". However, the skill name is still shown. Am I mistaken about what this option should do?

#4 - Is it possible (or would you consider making it possible) to hide parts of skill names that appear in parentheses, or rename certain spells? For example, when I'm in bear form it's just clutter to see "Mangle (Bear)" or "Faerie Fire (Feral)" when all I need to see is "Mangle" or "Faerie Fire".
I can help with 2 of them:

#4: Yeah, you can do this under the "Spam Control" tab with the button "Skill Substitutions." I just tested it with Cloak of Shadows and it property suppresses it to "Cloak" when triggering a buff event for it.

#1: This is a known bug and is being fixed. Can disable trigger in meantime.

Hope that helps.

I'm not 100% sure what you are asking, but I'm guessing by line height you are asking for Font Size and Distance of text you are asking how to change the size of a scroll area. General->Master Fonts for the first. Scroll Areas->Configure Scroll Areas for the second.


Ammo:

Done. I'll expose it as the last parameter of DisplayMessage.

Buio:

Thank for the screenshot. That looks like buff gains as opposed to emote spam. I'll see what I can do for that as well.

Mikord,

Any chance you could expose the texture addition to the public api?

I use LibSink-2.0 in WitchHunt to be able to route messages to MSBT and would like to display icons as well. If you could expose the icon as the last parameter to DisplayMessage or expose a special API that would be great.

I have a small problem. Addon works fine for 5-10 min then something is wrong and only static data is shown. No incoming or outgoing stats (dmg etc.). Can somebody tell me how to fix it ?
