Duct Tape

Version: r9
by: ChaosInc, nanobit

"OMG, you guys SUCK!"
"You guys are the worst I've ever seen!"
"My 2 yr. old plays better than you!"
"Just let them win!"
"Aren't you a bit low for this?"
"Nice greens, scrub!"
"Sorry, I didn't buy my toon with full epics like you. I'm actually working for them!"


Sound familiar? I got sick of hearing this in battlegrounds so I made this mod. It will filter out all the useless crap while still allowing you to see the important stuff.

This is a recreation "BMS - Battleground Message Screening", which I authored. BMS was my first mod attempt and it sucked as some people may know. So I scrapped it and started from the ground up again now that I'm a bit more experienced.

If people really wanted to double check if it's working and what triggers are found, they can use the "hidden" debug feature with /dtape debug. When a message comes through, it'll print it in the chat window.

Proper premades use Voice-chat anyway.

Given how many people misspell it, you should probably make it turren?t
Thanks for that. I have it fixed, I'll release later.

Need some info if you want a fix.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll definitely keep them in mind as I go along. I've been self-teaching myself .lua as I go along, so I always welcome advice on making mods more efficient.

Definitely a good effort! I like where you're going with this, because we all know that the Battlegrounds could use better filters.

The only suggestion I'd have is to localise the elements you're using, tables like DT_BASIN could become local DT_BASIN, and functions like DT_SlashCommandHandler could become local DT_SlashCommandHandler. In fact, in doing this you could remove the DT_ part entirely because these elements would no longer exist as globals.

Aside from that, I think you're doing a bang-up job with this! Nice regexing.
