NinjaYell

Version: r7
by: ganders [More]

NinjaYell is a small addon useful for announcing to your group when key spells are applied, removed or missed (resisted, immune, dodge, etc.).

By default NinjaYell will announce:

  • Sap
  • Blind
  • Fear
  • Psychic Scream
  • Freezing Trap
  • Polymorph
  • Cyclone
  • Failed Taunts
  • Failed Distracts

How do I add my own spells?
NinjaYell does not have any kind of config, which is one of the things that keeps this addon so small. To edit what spells you want NinjaYell to announce, open up core.lua in the NinjaYell folder and follow the directions inside. It should be pretty straightforward.

I've added quite a few comments to the core.lua file (they're the lines with the -- before them) to help explain what's happening and what you need to do to add your own spells & messages.



Questions, comments, bug reports, etc.:

Use the buttons under the DOWNLOAD button or leave a comment.

r7
- Removed use of a metatable
- Rearranged addon structure to allow referencing to NinjaYell's tables in game.
r6
- Added slash command to enable/disable the mod
- Fixed a few bugs and (hopefully) made it more efficient
- Added "Interrupt" messages for spells like Kick and Counterspell. Simply add the spell in like you would any other, but instead of making messages for Applied or Faded use Interrupt

r4
- So I decided to log on to my mage to make sure NinjaYell worked for Polymorph, and lo and behold! NinjaYell didn't work for casting at all! This is what I get for exclusively playing a rogue. Oh well, it should be fixed now, I'd appreciate it if someone else could give me some feedback on it.
- If you don't have any SCT addons AND you're not using Blizzard's FCT, it will use the SAY channel

r3
- ToC Version change
- Added color variable. Change the values in this table to change the color of the messages displayed through SCT

r2
- Resetting Change Log
Optional Files (0)

Yes please do, currently i'm using castyeller but it's my only addon using the Ace2 framework, everything is non ace or Ace3, so it's like a hugr brick just to broadcast a message :/

Hrm, I'll have to add this feature in, as well as a way to announce to custom channels.

Also just to make sure i've got the right idea, if i want to announce something to my party, its channel = "PARTY" right?

Thanks in advance
If you're not in a party or raid, then it will look to see if you have any SCT mods (checks for MSBT, SCT and Blizzard's FCT currently) and will use that if it finds one. If it doesn't, then it will use the default "SAY" channel.

Yes.

Code:
Misdirection = {
    Channel = "WHISPER",
    Target = function() if (UnitCanAttack("player", "target")) then return UnitName("focus") elseif (UnitIsPlayer("target")) then return UnitName("target") end end,
    Applied = "Misdirecting %t to you!",
},
Something else that I forgot to mention in the changelog, you should no longer be getting those "No whisper target!" errors, so this function should work now.

Thanks, i like your addon very much.
If you didn't already, then you will need to open up the core.lua file inside the NinjaYell folder, and change the spell names that you find in there. (They are all in English by default)

If you don't know where to look, find the line
Code:
local SpellDB = {
Below that, you should see a list of spells in ["this format"]. Simply change the name of the spell, and it should work.

With the latest release, the misdirection line u gave me below doesn't work anymore, no errors, just no whisper to the person i'm misdirecting to.

My MD line
Code:
Target = function() if UnitCanAttack("player", "target") then if UnitExists("focus") then return UnitName("focus") else return UnitName("pet") end else return UnitName("target") end end,
Error i get when having no target so the MD is sent to focus

Code:
[2008/06/08 17:18:02-10048-x1]: SendChatMessage(): Whisper message missing target player!:
<in C code>: ?
<in C code>: in function `SendChatMessage'
NinjaYell\core.lua:192: in function `Announce'
NinjaYell\core.lua:84: in function <Interface\AddOns\NinjaYell\core.lua:65>

This happen if ihave no focus and no friendly target, as the default is then to MD to my pet, the addon generate an error as the pet isn't a player and i have no friendly target.
Right, my mistake. Try this:
Code:
function() if UnitCanAttack("player", "target") then if UnitExists("focus") then return UnitName("focus") else return UnitName("pet") end else return UnitName("target") end,
This will whisper your focus if you're targeting something hostile. If you don't have a focus, it will whisper your pet. If you're targeting something friendly then it will whisper your target.

I hope that's what you needed.
