PVP Message (aka BG Messages)
!! Please delete your BGMessages folder before installing this one, if you have one !!

It has two main purpose:
1) A very simple addon which enables you to quickly notify your fellow battleground players that your current location is safe, under attack or that a number

of enemies are incoming.

2) Allow to report your target(faction, class, name, level, location[x,y]) to LocalDefense channel

Feature :
- AB Show icon of node allowing you to click on it to report incoming, safe or request help (check in-game tooltip for more info)

- WSG specific windows (request help for specific WSG location, and target flag carrier with secure button) Need more please pm or leave comment. (enable it in config window '/pvpmsg config')

- Icon for AB that colorize following the statut of who control it. Allowing to request help, telling you are on your way to... etc see icon tooltip.

- Enable important message to be displayed in UIErrorFrame, BCT, SCT, MikSBT ... (still under devel.)

- DuelInfo, show name/class/race/level of your opponent

- Killing Blow announcer.

Use: It's best use is to set the keybindings in the Keybindings interface. The key bindings are self explanatory

I also provide a GUI (a small window) with boutton to report incoming to your location.

I provide a slash command (/pvpmsg) allowing you to configure it for your need.
You can also use the config window. (/pvpmsg config)

Take very small amount of memory

I was very glad to see this mod was still around, but it's having some issues in 3.0, I thought you might like to know... I was having a white chat error problem akin to what's described in this thread - according to the posters there, it happens to various mods that tinker with chat, as this one does. Disabling all mods and enabling only PvPMessages causes the chat to nab a white background and various other problems with chat and tabs - removing PvPMessages, with and without other mods installed, corrects the problem. The specific error thrown up is Interface\FrameXML\ChatFrame.lua:2218: bad argument #1 to 'strsub' (string expected, got nil) - which means nothing to me, but perhaps it will to you. Been using your mod for a long time, so even if you don't get around to a fix, I ought to say: thank you! once again.
