Combat Log Fix  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r20100217
by: Shadowed [More]
Fixes the combat log break bugs that have existed since 2.4. Credit goes to Imbad on ArenaJunkies for finding this. It works by clearing your combat log essentially, but it does it a little bit more automatically:

Slash commands: /logfix

On zone type change (pvp -> none, raid -> none, etc) it will clear the combat log
If no combat log events are found for 2 seconds after you cast a spell, it'll clear the log. It will also report how many combat log messages you had when it broke, if you can report these numbers in comments that would be great, might help narrow the bug down.

The above are enabled by default, you can disable them with /logfix.

- Changed logic, now based off of when the spell with a cost (mana/health/rage/etc) is cast and checks if any combat log messages fired within the last 1 second
- Fixed events not being unregistered
- Reduced timeout to 2 seconds
- Initial commit (/logfix), auto fixes the combat log by clearing it

under high latency yes. the mod compares combat log events to UNIT_SPELLCAST events, basically, it time stamps when yu casted it on your local UI frst, then after x amount of time if it hasn't gotten a combat log event for it from server side, it assumes combat log broke and resets log. i believe this delay is like .5 or something, so basically, if your latency is higher then that delay, it's gonna clear log a lot for no reason cause your latency is affecting your cast start to cast result.

It reports that it is still clearing stuff but i'm not sure if it actually needs to be clearing anything. It seems to randomly clear stuff like it should but I haven't seen my combat log actually stop working yet.

I get these disconnects too and it's not our connection. There are quite a few threads about this in the tech support forums. One "fix" was to set your multicore processor to use certain cores. Some people swear it works, but unfortunately I didn't notice any difference. But some blues have decided to recommend that fix since it works for some:

Keep in mind the auto fixing will trigger within 1 second of a cast by you, so if you're using a lot of abilities you can have it clear the log before you notice it's broken.

There's not that much I can do at a certain point. I don't play a melee class, if you notice it breaks you can try /script CombatLogClearEntries() to see if it fixes it. If it does I can try and look into it more.

Check /logfix status to make sure auto clearing and reporting are enabled.
I just had the message trigger for the first time on my hunter alt though I did not notice the combat log was broken. This was using whatever the default settings are on initial install.

For the warrior (and as mentioned earlier, the DK and the rogue), I tried whatever the default is and then tried turning on the "Wait on clear" since that was the only disabled one by default but i've yet to see anything trigger on those 3 characters though I have noticed the combat log breaking.
