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.

Perfect Mikrod, just perfect! You've completely eliminated the need of my MutilateCrit add-on since it displays just right.

Thanks again for the prompt reply!

Request

First, I just want to say that this is by far my favorite addon, particularly the custom trigger events and the ability to add sound features to them.

I saw that you are currently building a new trigger event system and it sounded like you will have functionality to track instant cast spells/abilities in it. So, I was wondering if you had considered adding to it the ability to track the cooldowns associated with the custom triggers that you add. For example:

Trigger event: Priest uses Psychic Scream
Response event: 30s later MSBT displays a message informing you that his CD is up and plays an optional attached sound file.

Another possibility might be to incorporate an option to use Natur's Enemycastbar functionality with it to track cooldowns. For example:

Trigger event: Warrior uses his Pummel
Response event: MSBT sets an optional NECB timer using the custom timer command(/necb countsec <seconds> <name>) which would be:
/necb countsec 10 Pummel

I've been using Mik's for awhile now and have nothing but priase for it. However after re-installing wow and updating my addons again I installed the latest version and unfortunately it seems to be causing a problem.

It works great but the problem is, it's also telling me not only my combat, it's also scrolling all the players and npcs within range of me. Going to the isle for example is almost spam city as every single action that any npc or player does is shown on my screen.

Is there any way to show only what I or my pet do? Maybe its just a simple click and I'm missing it.

Thank you

Rayvenn:

That's an interesting idea, but I think tracking of enemy cooldowns is better left to mods that are designed specifically for that purpose. If you haven't seen it, you might want to check out afflicted or something similar. I believe it lets you specify which cooldowns you want to see as well.


Nightstrikergp:

I believe I've read somewhere that Witchhunt is the cause of that and it has an option for current target only or similar.

Is it possible to have a trigger that only activates if the affected unit is friendly to me?

From what I have seen now I can either chose "All" or "Hostile only". There is no party only/raid only/friendly only.

For example, in arena, I want to see when a Viper sting is casted on someone in my team but not when my hunter casts it on someone in the other team.

Great addon.

Ive been having a problem getting it to show what I spell reflect. I have the box checked in 'Events' that says; 'Skill Reflects' - and I changed it to show it in the outgoing rather than incoming through the edit tools (even with it in default setting it wasnt working) and it still doesn't show what im reflecting. Is there a fix for this?

Go to Events tab, then change dropdown box to Notification, it's about 3/4th's of the way down, event is named "Experience Gains".

Trycatchme:

Not with 5.11, but the new system I'm currently working on will allow it.


Salish:

It all depends on what sound files you have added to shared media lib, either manually or through other mods.
I suggest you read MSBT's FAQ on adding sound files directly to MSBT as it might work out better for you.


Vyril:

Spell reflect shows the damage done by the reflect as if it were damage you did. I'm going to put the actual reflect message back in as well with the next version.


Blacky:

The icons are whatever Blizzard assigns to them, and being as how Blizzard likes to reuse icons for certain things just as they do gear models, it's not uncommon to see some repeated ones.

Is it possible to restrict a trigger to only when spells are cast on me?

E.g. Mana Burn on me instead of seeing Mana Burn on any teammate?

Wow, nicely done! Great mod... However... I have a few questions... might sound noob-ish...


I dunno why, but I can see other people casting stuff that I don't need to see (I made triggers to see when rogues are out of CoD/popped CoD, sheep broken... etc etc) but right now... I even see people mounting up (BLAH is casting Dreadsteed, etc) and I also see people using all these skills...

It floods my screen and I don't know how to turn it off or what causes this to happen. In the triggers menu, I don't seee anything with regards to this.


Can you please help me? Thank you!

Most likely caused by your Witchhunt, sending his messages to MSBT.

Go to the Witchhunt config and activate the "target only" mode.
