SpellAlerter  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2.03
by: kollektiv [More]

What it does

SpellAlerter is a basic spell alert mod based off the original SpellAlert mod. See the images for the different alert types you can setup.

Features

  • Add any spell and ability you want to be alerted to
  • Three filters: Enemy Spellcasts, Enemy Buffs, and Friendly Debuffs
  • Additional filtering for players only (reduces spam from things such as Mirror Image)
  • Each alert can have its own sound play. It's similar to making triggers in MSBT but a lot more simplified.
  • Optional minimap icon
  • Data broker plugin
  • All options are inside the GUI. Type /sa or /spellalerter to access them.

Localization

It should work with all language clients. It is currently only localized in English and Simplified Chinese. If you'd like to help translate see the Locales.lua file.

Bug Reports and Feature Requests

Please post them in the comments.

Changelog

2.03
  • Added Simplified Chinese translations
  • Localization is now done through CurseForge
  • Fixed bug with Target Only option

2.02
  • The arrow will now point to the left if the source's target is the same as the source
  • Added an option to filter players on spell casts. Helps reduce spam (ex. Frost Bolts from mirror images)
  • Added an option to toggle class colors on names. This is only 100% reliable in arenas
  • Added an option to select text font
  • Added an option to replace player name with any word
  • Added an option to toggle showing targets. Select between arrow model and text
  • Added an option to play a sound for each spell. Similiar to making MSBT triggers.
  • Added a list for spell cast ignores. These are spells you don't want showing targets (ex. Howl of Terror).
  • Added verifying and case formatting for list additions
  • Added a profile system
  • Added toggable minimap icon
  • Added localization support
  • Removed creating new anchors. I've never seen anyone use this.
  • Added a Sounds.lua file. Adding sounds is very easy. Open Sounds.lua and follow the instructions carefully.
  • Added Ace3 libraries
  • Added LibDBIcon-1.0 library
  • Added LibDataBroker-1.1 library - Hence there's support for LDB launcher display addons
  • Added LibSharedMedia-3.0 library
  • Added !ClassColors support
  • Created a FauxScrollFrame AceGUI widget for 'select' types in options

For the most recent changes, see the addon page. For a compilation of the all the changes, see the Changelog file in the zip.

Got some help from other developers and LibBabble coding notes
Code:
local B = LibStub("LibBabble-Spell-3.0")
	local BS = B:GetLookupTable()
No need for AceLibrary

to make sa work on chinese/german/whatever client

hi kollektiv, I finally make the latest version work on my chinese client, i think the fix could be used on other locale client too.

the first, and the root cause that SA isn't working on chinese/german client is:
Code:
local BS = LibStub:GetLibrary("LibBabble-Spell-3.0")
actually Babble-Spell isn't initialized by this line. when use BS[k], there's always a "nil table" error. I found AceLibrary can make babble work.(but i haven't figure out why, really poor on lua ) first include AceLibrary in the TOC file, then use this code to initialize BS:
Code:
local BS = AceLibrary("LibBabble-Spell-3.0"):GetLookupTable()
another issue is about font:
Code:
anchor.frame.text:SetFont("Fonts\\FRIZQT__.TTF",settings.fontsize,"THICKOUTLINE")
if target is using letters or charactors which don't exist in this font, their name are shown as "??", like other font issue, a GameFontNormalLarge would suffice:
Code:
anchor.frame.text:SetFont(GameFontNormalLarge:GetFont(),settings.fontsize,"THICKOUTLINE")
after these two fixs and correct ACE libs, SA should be working on any localization. cheers~

btw, seems that x-position bar still not workingbut it's ok for me, never expect the icon to show up elsewhere

No, nothing works, no access to GUI and Addon itself does not work.

I have the same problem as nodq. Spellalerts ain't working and I have trouble accessing the GUI option. SA is loaded but if I type in /sa it just says I shell type in /help blabla.

I'm also using the german client.

The Addon is loaded but nothing shows up in Interface and the commands dont work, but i recieve no Errors.

I will try the new Version now.


edit: Same Problem for the latest Version, cant access the Commands /sa or /spellalerter - the Game acts like it does not exist at all, dont show up in Interface etc. - but no Errors.

Woischi: It's still needed to localize spells. Each rank of a spell has its own spellID so it's easier to base it off the name.

Afaik there is no need for Babble-Spell since 2.4 (GetSpellInfo) anymore, right?

Great AddOn, kollektiv, thank you!
