About Achievement Sounds

Now includes Bill's Utils as a library but it can still be installed from either of these links:

Never miss an achievement again. This addon does not auto-grats because some Achievements are just not worth a grat and it could get spammy if it did.

Achievement Sounds can play a sound and pop up a small window alerting when someone in your party / guild or near you gets an achievement. The popup will disappear in 15 (default) seconds if you don't click the "Grats" button or "Cancel" button. It can also displays the achievement in MSBT's notification frame if installed. When you click the "Grat" button it will send a "Grats" to the person that is randomly generated according to the configured settings or the default grat that can also be set in-game by you. There are MANY options that you can set and if there isn't an option for what you want let me know and I will try and add it. (If only I could find a way to send ascii chars greater than 127)

All options are defaulted on but can be changed by the slash command /achsnd or by the GUI config screen that is in with all your other addon config screens or by typing "/achsnd config" The custom "Grats Alert" frame that can be moved and positioned wherever you like. You can also change the fade behavior of the frame, and minimum alpha, and more

Added a new command "/achsnd cmdlist" that explains what the command line switches do. Added Nickname support for the grats. Type "/asnn" for more info (they store per server)

To use a custom sound file for the alert just copy a file named alert.mp3 or alert.ogg into the addon directory before you start WoW

  • for mp3 type "/achsnd custommp3 on"
  • for ogg type "/achsnd customogg on"

The Grats can now put the person's name (up to 10 people configurable) peoples nicknames and do mass grats like the whole guild (ie "Grats my Guildies" instead of just "Grats") with adjustable thresholds also to go from "Grats you 6" to "Grats my Peeps"

Now filters out achievements from the opposite faction when you have near grats on(except for pandas).

Now has the option to not alert you when you are in an active pvp battleground or TB / WG

Addon Packs Containing This...

    Hi, it's not only the star problem but also the alias name and adding the name function doesn't work either. You can't do anything except post star Gratz star which looks like an Auto Gratzer, embarressing :(

  • #15

    an update has been posted and it works for me... I know, so let me know if it works for you

  • #14

    are you trying to do it from the command line or the cfg page?


    also... sorry I didn't see this as Yahoo marked the notification from Curse as spam for some reason...

    The default message is set to {star} Grats {star}.

    I try to change that, but it won't save the new message that I set. Am I missing something? I would like for the Addon to use my personal message.

  • #12

    well for right now, until I can get an update posted, you can type
    /achsnd defaultmsg whatever you want for your message

    I had fixed that problem before but somehow it changed itself back...

  • #7

    Is there way to customize gratz message?

  • #8

    you can change the default grats message to whatever you want by typing "/nalert defaultmsg However you want to grat" or from the control panel page "/nalert config"

    if you use the random message generator you can control the use of the flourishes, if they use raid icons or not, peoples character names, assigned nick names for the characters, and more

    Are you looking sor something else? I was thinking of adding replaceable parameters for the default grat message so it could include personalized info like the person's name and what not in it...

    I fixed the issue stopping them from showing up in the config gui along with several other options that were not showing...

  • #9

    Thanks command /achsnd defaultmsg "your message" working.

    It would be nice to add this to configuration gui along with random messages editing. ;-)



  • #5

    Slight glitch and I don't know if it can be solved. I alt-tabbed out of the game to check something on the net. I heard a alert sound in the background for a guild member and when I opened the game window the grats window wasn't there.

  • #6

    there seems to be no way for an addon to figure out that WoW is in the background (probally to stop evil addon programmers from making the addon do stuff when nobody is looking)   You could try increasing the timeout for the window closing (it defaults to 15 seconds) and try that (or even set it to 0 so it doesn't auto close)

  • #3

    It seems it doesn't work in LFD groups as I get a chat message saying. "You are not in a group". Might this be because its also an instance channel/group?

  • #4

    it should now be able to tell if you are in an "Instance" group vs just a party and send the grat to the proper channel

  • #1

    Liked & installed buddy :)

  • #2

    Thanks... and grats on the 1st comment   lol
