ErrorMonster  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r88
by: Rabbit [More]
ErrorMonster is a small addon to block a few standard action errors from printing. Please note that it does not block the "Error Speech" that comes with them - you have to disable that in Sound Options.

It was originally based on RogueSpam, but has since evolved drastically lately after people asked me to add some stuff to it.

Not only does it come with a significant set of default filters, you can of course add and remove filters at will. Filtering does not necessarily mean that the errors are eaten; they can also be redirected to a sink, such as ChatFrame1-7, BigWigs, SCT (+Message), MSBT or Blizzards own FCT, of course, since I implemented sinks, I had to implement general error throttling as well.

You can tell it to also aggro on system and information messages, like quest updates ("1/5 wild boars slain!"), and flush those out the sink as well. And it features a berserk option that will unconditionally flush anything down the sink.

How do you change what chatframe in which the errors go to? The default is set to the main chat box, but I want all of the errors to go into a custom chatbox I made named "Errors".

Throttling

is it possible you could add an option to not throttle the error messages?

i would prefer it if every time i was... impatient that i would get a reminder to slow my button smashing

Uncaught Error

Iv'e noticed that one particular error isn't being filtered/redirected by errormonster.

You can't do that right now.

It is a result of trying to change equipsets in combat/while casting, I have it on my main nuke so when I get jumped while fishing it changes my weapons back.

Incredibly annoying in raids as the error messages cover my boss mods bars, making them hard to read. Sure I could move the bars, but I like them where they are and the error message is useless information.

If anyone has a solution to this please let me know.

Not working

Just installed this today and it is not doing anything beyond sticking an options window under Interface->AddOns regardless of what is checked/unchecked.

FYI, if you install ErrorFilter and modify ErrorFilter/ErrorFilter.toc, adding a "## OptionalDeps: ErrorMonster" line, you'll get the best of both worlds - filtering + redirection to a sink.

Pitbull is one of those highly customizable things. Any unitframe mod is going to have some customization that needs to be done to it. Try Lunar Unit Frames, Shadowed Unit Frames or Stellar Unit Frames (in that order) and see if any of them do what you want out of the box. Configuring Pitbull can be quite daunting, but worth it in the end if you want to play with the options. If you just want unitframes out of the box I have to suggest Lunar Unit Frames.

Thanks in advance.
Looks like Pitbull for the unit frames (portraits) and probably ButtonFacade Serenity for the buttons. BF doesn't skin the default buttons though, so you'll have to get an action bar mod like Bartender or something.

The bottom is probably BTex, or could be kgPanels. Either or, although I imagine if that's all you want is a bottom bar like that you'll be happy with BTex.

I can't seem to filter errors. Says that you're able to, but unless its a lua config thing I'm not seeing how.

seem broken! there is no configuration option in the interface menu and errormonster is not listed there! but its checked and active in the addons option in the character selection screen.

errormonster minimap icon is visible but no option as well, and if i join grps, or so it still spam on my chat frame about the errors

@Kuzah Well judging that the .toc files doesn't list Ace3 I don't think it's that.

You configure Errormonster by going ESC->Interface->Addons tab->Errormonster

C'mon people it's been there for months now

PS Have personally used that dialog box almost every day for months. Everytime something goes wrong and i need to redirect the error output to the chat frame to figure out how retarded i'm being

I haven't tried this myself yet, but browsing the comments on Cursed people have mentioned that you need to download Ace 3 as well.
