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.

Disabling sound

Is there a way to turn off the verbal messages that are spammed as well? "I need mana!" I know this can't be done Lua-atically, but could you like provide blank sound files or something?

You can turn this off from the Sound Options in your normal WoW client. Just open it and untick "Error Speech".

Or are you asking me to try and add custom filtering for those as well?

Item Cooldown

with the changed for 2.0 you might want to add ERR_ITEM_COOLDOWN

I added it because you can no longer check trinket cooldowns from macros

btw nice job picking up where RogueSpam left off!

also just changing the TOC to 20000 doesnt work

there is an error with the ace2 libs

addons\errormonster\libs\acelibrary\acelibrary.lua:301: 'setn' is obsolete

Thanks.

What you say about Ace2 is true, you have to get the TBC branch of Ace2 from either the SVN or http://wowace.com/files/Ace2/

I love the option to redirect to SCT/Parrot. The ability to throttle errors is also fantastic. ErrorMonster would be truly awesome as an error spam filter AND an error display tool, fi it could completely suppress one set of errors, and redirect another another set of errors!

For instance, I'd like to output certain errors that are useful to me through SCT, while suppressing the rest. Currently this is not possible. Errors on the ErrorMonster "list" are redirected, while all other errors continue to spam blizzard's default error frame -- which is what we want to avoid in the first place.

This addon is very awesome as it is. Adding this extra functionality -- say two lists, one for suppressed errors and one for those we wish to redirect -- would make it perfect!

problem with update changes-54514

I just updated and it will no longer redirect to any other chat frame than to general. I had it set up to send messages to a dedicated frame on the side but it cant do this anymore. This seems to be a design change as the /command is now different. The version I am using (just one step older Ithink) uses /errormonster sink **** to sink messages (in my case chatframe4), the new one uses /errormonster output **** instead. The command /errormonster output chatframe4 is invalid.

Other then that breaking with the new version, great mod.

cooldownto go / error mosnter

Why would disabling cooldowntogo also disable error monster ? any reason ? seems like it would have nothing to do with each other.

How to configure

Are there directions on how to configure this? Something simple like typing "/errormonster config"? I can't even tell if it is active. There is no button and while it is in the list of addons at the choose realm screen it does not show up in the list of addons in the interface section from within the game.

Help would really be appreciated.

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.

@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
