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.

That is something I want to get to eventually, but is obviously a low priority thing.


H0PE:

No. MSBT does have a Low Health indicator message and associated sound with it by default though.

Custom Sounds Clarification...

Sorry, I'm having a hard time figuring out how to set the custom sounds like the two SCT sounds I like for Low Health and Low Mana sounds. I saw your post on:
http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/th...28545607&sid=1

But creating the MSBTSounds.lua, I didn't see the custom sounds for me to call up, and the readme file only covered wav/mp3s and developer.

Edit: It looks like I found out how to do it properly... Might want to recommend for the future when noting these sounds like the SCT stuff where using in game sounds might be to reference locations, like:

"Sound\Spells\bind2_Impact_Base.wav"
"Sound\Spells\ShaysBell.wav"

While it may seem intuitive for some, it took me a bit of time to see that would be the case.

Those are instructions for an older version. Here is a copy of my post I made about how to do it with the new custom media editor.


Custom media is done through MSBT's in-game custom media editor now. See the "How do I add my own custom sounds?" FAQ entry in the included readme or at MSBT's portal site here: http://www.wowinterface.com/portal.php?id=156&a=faq

The only difference is you can ignore the part about copying the sounds into the MikScrollingBattleText\Sounds folder and just use the path you've posted (only a single backslash instead of two because it's no longer in lua) since those sounds are a part of the game itself and can be referenced directly.

Sound Name: Custom Low Health
Sound Path: Sound\Spells\bind2_Impact_Base.wav

Sound Name: Custom Low Mana
Sound Path: Sound\Spells\ShaysBell.wav

The main benefits are that you'll never have to modify it again unlike before where you had to make the edits again every time you downloaded a new version of the mod and you no longer have to modify code outside of the game. Custom media is also separated from profiles, so it also will survive profile resets.

Amazing addon! Fast, efficient, and highly customizable. Cheers mate



Quick question though, is it possible to use the Skill Substitutions (configured under Spam Control) with the Cooldown Output Message?

It looks like the only thing that works is the %e tag, and I would love to be able to see the new skill names that I have substituted when the cooldown notification pops up.

Am I missing something?

I love your add-on! Unfortunately, I've had to disable it.

There appears to be a bug that crashes wow with a "memory cannot be written error.". Based on some web searches, that tends to be caused from a null pointer somewhere.

My wife and I run several characters with many addons (pitbull, carbonite, arkinventory, etc) and have seen an unusual crash right as the characters appear in the world (the crashing box never sees the game world).

I systematically eliminated every other add-on and this is one definitely is causing the crash. It happens more frequently when we load/reload several characters at once. I suspect it is due to something not loading in the right order.

It will be extremely hard to debug since it very well could be an interaction with another add-on. Since it only happens 20-30% of the time (on 2 out of 5 computers), it is also just rare enough that fixing it will be a pain. I figured I would alert you so so you could keep an eye out for anything like a null pointer in the initialization code.

Fenneddar:

No the skill substitutions only apply to the events that appear under the "Events" section. I have considered extending them to cooldown however.


Elaundar:

Thanks for the information. As you expected, that's going to be a tough one to debug. You're the only person that I know of who has that issue. I'll comb over the initialization code and make sure I don't see anything odd.


Jankuro:

Kick and such should be a successful cast and Entangling Roots / Faerie Fire are Aura Applications

Something like:

Successful Cast
Recipient Unit Affiliation - Is Equal To - You
Skill Name - Is Equal To - Kick

Aura Application
Recipient Unit Affiliation - Is Equal To - Party Member
Skill Name - Is Equal To - Entangling Roots

Exceptions:
Zone Type - Is Not Equal To - Arena (This just makes the trigger be ignored when not in the arena and is optional)

Trinket/Ability Proc

Hey there, simply put, I want MSBT to utilize the announce feature of the proc from my Darkmoon Card: Death in the "Notification" section (which is by default on the top of my screen).

What conditions do I have to apply for it to register it?

I surmised it would be "Extra Attacks" for the Main Event part but for the Event Conditions what would I put and select?

Thanks in advance for any help you (the author) or anyone else can provide!

Avast:

From the looks of that compilation's UI page, it appears to be using Parrot. You could disable it by removing the Parrot folder from your AddOns folder.

VillainsINC:

I believe its proc is to deal damage of the same name (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=57352). So it should be just be something like:

Skill Damage
Source Unit Affiliation - Is Equal To - You
Skill Name - Is Equal To - Darkmoon Card: Death

Heya, it's me harrassing again.

I'm trying to do a cyclone warning message, which I actually managed to do with 'Cast start' event. Would it be possible to add a condition target is/is not player? Logic behind this being that I'd rather spellreflect it if the target is me and interrupt if it's someone else. Also, I don't suppose it is possible to have the targets name on the warning text (yes there's that spellalert addon or whatever but I'd rather use minimal amount of addons...)?

Oh yeah, and I suppose I would have to do 2 triggers for target=me and !=me to get 2 different warning messages (and sounds since Im such a scrub lol).

The actual recipient unit of skills with a cast time (signaled via the cast start event) is not reported by the game. It's not until the cast actually afflicts the recipient that this information is reported. Therefore it's not possible to tell if they're really casting against their current target, their focus, or some other unit with a [target=X] macro conditional. Many of the spell alert type of mods just assume the current target is the recipient of the cast, but in competitive play, focus CC and conditional target macros are much more prevalent and that assumption is frequently incorrect.

I would really like to see Blizzard report the intended recipient for casts.

Is there a "whitelist" feature where, instead of adding all the cooldowns you wish to have removed from the cooldowns that display, you just add the ones you want to watch? (same for skills, schools of damage, etc.)

If not, it would be so awesome if it were there.

I have an issue to report. Aoe effects on me produce multiple messages. I'm a Blood DK and most likely my Bloodworms are to blame, since it's always about four messages. They are treated as if the were me. I have almost anything disabled and everything regarding pets.

There is not. That is a reasonable option for cooldowns, but isn't something I would add for generalized skills and such.


dr_AllCOM3:

Thanks for the report. I'm aware of the issue and it's already fixed locally. I haven't had a chance to push the new update out yet, but it will most likely be this weekend.
