BasicChatMods  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v7.4
by: funkydude [More]
Type /bcm to configure BasicChatMods, a basic and modular approach to chat customization.

By default BCM will allow you to drag your chat frames to the very edge of the screen, the remaining customization is done in BCM's modules which can be enabled or disabled at will.

A few of the current modules include:
  • Button Hiding
  • Channel Name Customization
  • Chat Copy
  • Font Customization
  • Chat Frame Justification
  • Player Name Customization
  • Real Id Class Coloring
  • Sticky Customization
  • Tell Target
  • Timestamp Customization
  • URL Copy

Class Colors: Are already provided by Blizzard, right-click chat frame tab > Settings > Tick Boxes
Combat Log Timestamps: Are already provided by Blizzard, right-click combat log tab > Settings > Formatting > Show Timestamp. Repeat this for every combat log, e.g. "Self", "Everything", "What happened to me?", "Kills".
v7.4: Fix a bug where only the first popup window would have your settings applied and all other windows were left default.
Enable playernames module by default.
Misc fixes.

The default UI already does that as of 5.4.7.

Could I allow it? Yes. Does it make sense? Not as far as I can see. You'd need to convince me of that.

A UI is meant to be consistent, I don't see why someone would want different fonts on different chat windows. Different alignments doesn't break consistency. For example, you might want a left, middle, and right alignment for placing your chat windows on the left, middle, and right hand side of the screen respectively.

Yep. With an editbox open using the up/down arrows no longer scrolls through my list of recently typed messages. Holding Alt and using the arrow keys does scroll through them but this is the behaviour we are trying to avoid by using this mod.

Setting eb:AltArrowKeyMode to true in any of the files just makes the game ignore arrow presses while an editbox is open.

I tested earlier releases ( as far back to 7.2 ) and these old versions also do not work (they used to) which suggests a Blizzard change.

Editbox Border Color

Apologies if this has been asked, but is it possible to hide the border of the editbox? I mean the one that changes colors based on channel by default. I'd like to disable that border or at least change its alpha.

v7.2
BCM now includes the LibChatAnims library to prevent BCM blocking talent changes for some users.
  • AltInvite: fix inviting people that log on.
  • BNet: Add option to remove the "person" icon from chat.
  • ChatCopy: Lots of code cleanup, remove icons from text to prevent copying issues, fix GUI description.
  • Highlight: Scan instance chat for highlights, don't highlight your own chat.
  • Timestamp: Clicking the timestamp for single-line copy now also includes the timestamp.
  • URLCopy: Complete re-write for simplification and future proofing. (new TLD non-English languages and virtually any words like .book will be legitimate sites)

You are correct, they are stored there. Is it possible to add the position and sizing information into a module versus copy/pasting the chat-cache.txt to all characters on every server?
