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.

From the change log:
  • Modified cast success and summon trigger events to include recipient conditions. Unfortunately cast start events do not report recipient information, so it is not available for them.

You're correct. That information isn't reported. Many authors have noted this before as well. If a bunch of people make a request for it on Blizzard's UI and Macros forum they might add it. I suspect it's not there because not all spells have actual targets (AoE spells mainly), but they could just report it when its known and leave it blank when it's not.

Mikord, I have to say I love your addon, especially the triggers, I have a question though, is it possible to get the destName from a CAST_START in a combat log event? I selected cast start for the event in the trigger and went to add a conditional and noticed I couldn't make a conditional for the recipient's name/reaction/control/etc. I was hoping to have it alert me whenever someone began casting a certain spell on me. Does CAST_START not return destName/GUID/etc?

Thank you for this great addon. =)

Try temporarily disabling your other mods. It's a conflict.


Lane:

There isn't one currently available, but since there is a combat log event for it, I will add a main event to the trigger system for it. That way you can create a trigger for it.

Skill Refresh?

Is there an event for when a skill is refreshed without expiring?
For example I have Pain and Suffering on my Shadow priest and it gives a chance for Mindflay to refresh the duration of SW: Pain. The only Combat log message is SW: Pain is refreshed.

Mikari:

Good point. I guess technically it should obey the exclusive skill names setting in that instance as well.

You could do it manually by disabling the exclusive skill names checkbox and removing the %s event codes from the output damage messages. That way it would display the verbose output for everything except the specific events you don't want it on. You wouldn't need to disable icons for the other areas if you did this either (in other words you can have both the icon and the verbose name). This is probably what you really wanted to begin with.

I'll make it obey the exclusive skill names setting on a per scroll area basis in the next drop though.

Being able to enable/disable icons in the different scroll areas doesn't seem to work how I'd expect, the reason I wanted the ability to selectively show icons is that I wanted the text to be verbose in the notification, static, incoming scroll areas but just icons in the outgoing scroll area, the problem is that disabling icons in all areas but outgoing still has the names of spells etc removed in the other scroll areas.

I have considered that and will probably ultimately add it disabled by default. There are a few other things that I want to get to first though. I'll probably do it as a part of the comprehensive cooldown system update I have planned (Pet cooldowns, trinket cooldowns, finer grained control, etc).

Hmmmm *scratches head* how about adding it but disabling it by default? That way people whom do want to see it can activate it by hand. I'm sure the spam detection would prevent it from constantly spamming as well. Yet, giving people the option to enable it (even though it's disabled at start) is a good idea Hehehe that or I can just face the facts and ignore my trigger happy finger

Just a thought!

Death Knight Runes

Anyway to display in the notification area or a new area when runes cooldowns are over for a deathknight?

Example: Meaning when a Blood Rune is up it displays it in the notification area. I believe scrollingcombattext used to do it and display a picture of the rune that was up next to the notification text.

Since I switched I've been wondering if this is possible
