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.

Apparently in the 2.4 version there's the servername behind the player's name, I find this rather annoying tbh - Is it possible to edit the .lua somehow to remove that? Or any other suggestions to get rid of it are welcome and very much appreciated.

Nice work Ensabahnur. One issue though with the hack is that the ability to set the height is now broken.

In another words, it's stuck in the middle... for me at least.

edit: nevermind. If you change the width first then the height parameter starts functioning again.

EnSabahNur managed to slip in this feature in your modified addon, but for some reason, the alerts does not show up, even tho it works if you type /sa test. While your original version, shows the spell alert with icons only, but doesnt do anything when /sa test is typed ( i was trying to test it after adjusting height and fade).
here are my latest hack for the Great Addon:
Code:
-----------------------------------------------------
-- Spell Alerter by Kollektiv
-----------------------------------------------------

SpellAlerterDB = SpellAlerterDB or { height = 190, fade = 1, width = 0}

local select = select
local GetSpellInfo = GetSpellInfo
local band = bit.band

local CombatLog_Object_IsA = CombatLog_Object_IsA
local COMBATLOG_FILTER_HOSTILE_PLAYERS = COMBATLOG_FILTER_HOSTILE_PLAYERS

local colors = {
		[1] = {1,1,0,0},	-- heals
		[2] = {1,0,1,0},	-- cc
		[3] = {0,1,0,0},	-- dispelable
		[4] = {1,0,0,0},	-- damage
	}
	
local frame,texture,text,fade,spells
local time, fadetime, alpha, num = 0,0,0,0

-- References
local ref_GetTextColor
local ref_SetText

	frame:SetFrameStrata("HIGH")
	frame:SetWidth(1)
	frame:SetHeight(1)
	frame:SetPoint("CENTER",UIParent,"CENTER",SpellAlerterDB.width,SpellAlerterDB.height)
	frame:Show()
	
	ref_Show = frame.Show
	ref_Hide = frame.Hide
	ref_SetScript = frame.SetScript
	
	local txt = frame:CreateFontString(ZoneTextFont,"ARTWORK")
	txt:SetFont("Fonts\\FRIZQT__.TTF",40,"THICKOUTLINE")

				num = num + 0.5
			elseif fadetime >= 0.1 and fadetime <= (fade - 0.1) then
				num = 1
			elseif fadetime > (fade - 0.1) then
				num = num - 0.5
			end
			ref_TextSetVertexColor(text,r,g,b,num)
			ref_TextureSetVertexColor(texture,1,1,1,num)
			time = 0

I have a strange bug with the program, the spell icon and the name of the player that is casting it are a bit transparent plus to make it disappear I have to "/console reloadui" (or someone has to cast another spell) but if I don't do that the "spellicon-player" will stay on my screen for a loooong time . Also, I have a wow error

Delete settings in WTF folder, which is most common way to fix problems when updating mods.

Is it possible for someone to edit or explain how to edit to re-include this option?

Thanks.

Hello. I added Babble Spell support so it works with any language and I have added two new features.
1. Added slider to move the frame left/right
2. Added option to show spellname next to the icon in front of the name of the player casting the spell.

And I have rearranged some parts of the options to make it look better in Niagara and Rock Config.

http://ensabahnur.googlecode.com/fil...lerter1.03.zip

If someone does not like the new stuff here are the SA_Spells.lua
Code:
-- 1 = yellow
-- 2 = pink
-- 3 = green
-- 4 = red
local BS = AceLibrary("Babble-Spell-2.2")


SpellAlerter_spells = {
	-- Heals
	-------------------------------------
		-- Priests
		[BS["Flash Heal"]] = 1,
		[BS["Greater Heal"]] = 1,

		[BS["Healing Wave"]] = 1,
		[BS["Lesser Healing Wave"]] = 1,
		
		-- Paladin
		[BS["Flash of Light"]] = 1,
