Red Alert  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.3.5
by: Tatheltek [More]
RedAlert is an Audio/Visual based addon designed to improve reatcion time in PvP and PvE combat.

When certain conditions are met an alert is splashed onto the screen so that the player
may react to whats happening.

Color Theme:

Spell Related - Blue
Melee Related - Yellow
Healing Related - Green
Protective Shields - Pink
Interrupts/Execute - Red

Since Warlocks are OP, most of their alerts are colored according to the ability type.
And because my main was a Lock when I started working on this project.

Some Alerts are multicolored because it looks cool.

All Alerts have a drop shadow to help the message stand out from the background.

Messages alerting you to conditions affecting your target will display the targets name.

Almost all messages are displayed with a short summary of the effect below the alert message.

Okay - trying to update Redalert.

I know the registered events change to:

this:RegisterEvent("COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED");

But now I am having an argument with arg1:

: RedAlert\RedAlert.lua:46: attempt to index global 'arg1' (a number value)

Here is how arg1 is currently used:

local msg = select (1, ...)
local playerClass, englishClass = UnitClass("player");
local targetClass = UnitClass("target");
local nameEnd1 = arg1:find(" is");
local nameEnd2 = arg1:find(" gain");
local targetName1 = arg1:sub(1, nameEnd1);
local targetName2 = arg1:sub(1, nameEnd2);
local targetName = UnitName("target");

I don't know much about lua or the 2.4 changes, but if anyone could help with some suggestions...

Thanks,

Robinton

Any chance of adding "Perception"? When i play my horde rogue it's nice to know when human alliance cast it , i get it using NECB allready if they are in range when casting, just thought it would be a nice addition to Red Alert.

Haven't tried Red Alert yet, but couldn't find perception anywhere in the description so just guessing it isn't there, downloading it now though

Fin-

Yes, Originally I had RedAlert posting detailed information to the default chat window until I added the details right under the alert message. But, I'm learning now that, for example, when some shamans crit, they have 3 buffs fire and only 1 message gets displayed because they overlay each other...so I will move the detailed information back to SELECTED_CHAT_FRAME.

Version information will be added to the TOC File

All of this will be in the next release along with a change to the name plate of the alert message...instead it will display the player/targets portrait.

Coming soon....

Version

Also, one other minor request: could you add the verison number to the .toc file? Just with:

## Version: 2.3.4.99

I can't figure out if I've got the latest version or not.

cheers,

- Fin

Option to display what each alert is in the chat frame

Any chance you could add an option to show in SELECTED_CHAT_FRAME what exactly each alert is? If there's more than one possibility (say, several things nearly coming off cooldown at the same time), sometimes it's not clear exactly what the flashing is for.

cheers,

- Fin

Lol, fixed that spelling error...will be in the next update.

I had the idea to display a small portrait instead of the "name" for the target alerts...or maybe both portrait and name, not sure yet. Working on it, well see what happens.

Thanks update. Finally remembered to rate you it as a 5. Good work.

Btw, for soulstone fading, I think there is a spelling mistake in your lua:

"Soulstone Ressuraction fades from you"

Isn't ressuraction spelled resurrection?

Fortch:

By CWOW, I think you mean Chinese WOW.

Are you saying RedAlert was working in CWOW with a prior version but not anymore?

Hey guys...

2.3.4 Should have fixed the issues with moving the alert frame around. Spent a day in the bowls of wowwiki and learned some new xml coding that addressed that issue rather well. Please let me know if you have any problems.

I need some feedback from Shamans and Druids especially, I don't have either of those classes so I am unable to play test their alerts myself. If you want any abilities added just let me know. Other classes are welcome to provide feedback as well of course.

Castus - Thanks for listing the missing abilities...I'll have them added with the next update

Gogusrl - I'm aware of this issue and looking for ways to recode how the message frame is made movable or positioned on the screen. In the mean time, try to avoid clicking on that area...move the message somewhere that the ghost click wont effect camera rotation. I am working on it however.

Wow this mod is awesome! Nice job. I'll rate it a 5 as soon as you have added more skills to it! I think my druid is still missing notices about Clearcast and Nature's Grace and Improved Leader of the Pack.

/redalert to show the window with the >>> x <<< - that works.

Right-clicking on the X does not allow me to drag it.
Yes, but it still catches mouse clicks and it creates a blindspot where the X is even when it`s hidden not allowing mouse look / turn in that spot.
