About ChatMOD

Discontinued... See ChatMod2 for the continuation of this.

ChatMOD is a universal Chat Enhancemend.
Original this was called "Sol's Color chat Nicks - SCCN" but after many people told me that they hardly find this mod I decided to rename it to it's actual purpose.

So What can ChatMOD do for me ?

ChatMOD provides many features which makes chatting / communication InGame much easier. To grab some examples: It color the nicknames of chat participants in their class color, stores this information in a database, provide modificaton of the chatframe like mouse scrolling, button hiding, chat editbox movement, channel name striping, channel name shortening, text highlighting, sound notifications, and many many more. The target was to build one Addon which contain the most important chat enhancements. So for the user it is easier to update one Addon than updating 10 addons after each patch.

Will this Addon be Updated steadily ?
More or less, Yes. But as every Addon author I'm doing this in my sparetime besides the Gameplay itself. So on first priority is my Druid on EU-Aegwynn but because I'm started to develop this Addon in the beginning for my own purpose I will update it as long as I'm plaing wow. And at the moment I don't have any plan to quit ;) So If you have any Suggestions or wan't to offer any support, feel free to contact me.

I Tuloa have taken over for Solariz who can no longer maintain the mod. As such I will update this mod whenever I can for any issues I see. See below for reporting bugs and such.

2) The WoWInterface Site here to donate to me Tuloa.

138 v2:

  • Added Monks to Colored Nicks feature.

138:

  • Updated Playing Sounds to attempt to remove the delay.
  • Added Battleground Compatibility and a better party check.
  • Updated TOC for newest patch.

12/05/2012: Updated TOC to reflect new client version.

137:

  • Fixed all known non working icons for the pet system.
  • Fixed the timestamp to show midnight correctly on the 12 hour system.
    -It only shows one digit. I will likely modify it later to show one or two digits.
    -And obviously if the time is two digits it will still show both. Only affects one digit times.

    Discontinued for ChatMod2. Will be up here shortly.

    Forgot to include it here when I threw it up on WoWInterface...

  • #1192

    Noticing an issue with chat lately...

    I think its time for an overhaul on the code. This will take some time. With this overhaul will come the following:
    > Better hyperlink detection and underlining
    > Better Name detection and coloring.
    > Will be compatible with other addons hopefully like TRP2. (Or at least TRP2)

    Maybe more as I redo it but that will come as time will tell.

    This is such a little thing, but made the difference in leading me to use this mod over others:

    You can configure the timestamp to display single-digit 12-hour time without the zero (displaying 4:30 instead of 04:30).

    I couldn't find a way to do this with any of the other chat mods I had tried.

  • #1191

    I thought this was something I hardcoded.

    Not sure but I should be able to make it an option for others later.

  • #1188

    Think you could at Alt Linking like Chatter?  It basically allows you to pull from guild notes who the main character is for a member in your guild.

  • #1190

    Not sure I'll look into it.

  • #1187

    Yay blizzard broke the Use Editbox Keys without <ALT> feature.

    Nothing I can do about this folks... Just have to wait and hope they fix whatever it is they broke.


    Sidenote:
    Working on TRP2 compatibility... I got it to get rid of the Hplayer: line but currently broke the highlighter popup notifications and in chat >Name< feature as well. So I am still working on it.

    I am going to post an update later to fix the "seen" highlighter for monk names tomorrow. Can't believe I thought the coloring was automatic somehow lol.

    Redid a small part of the Sound Playing area to hopefully make it faster.

    Cannot do the change to the system making it know what is in there because they took out the option to read files in the folders and such. Likely due to cheating or something. So those plans are out.


    I have however updated it to work in this patch or at least updated the TOC. I am going to be working on a bug with TRP2 that I am noticing and it could take a bit to fix.

    Chatmod still works with the latest patch... I will update the TOC file later but check the "Load out of date addons" box for now.

  • #1184

    news for patch 5.2?? not work again

  • #1181

    I have an interesting bug for you... If a player's name is part of another word, then the highlighting is inaccurate. If that word is part of the name of an item, then it breaks the link. If it's part of another player's name or any other word that may be subject to seperate processing, then all hell breaks loose! It doesn't have to be you, it can be any other player you've encountered if you have those settings enabled.

     

     I suspect a check to ensure the player's name is surrounded by spaces is all that's required to fix this...

    I will try to find time to look into this. I am gonna have to brush up on a couple of things to convert it to that kind of check but it shouldnt take long.

    That is if work dont leave me with no free time again like last week.

    Hi, just noticed that Monks don't seem to be receiving class colour highlights either?

  • #1180

    For those of us using DBM with this mod I noticed the icon or whatever it uses for the update URL is broke.

    I will try to see if it is an icon and fix it if it is. I will have to figure out how to make it till when the url starts so it will take time.

     

     

    That and I will start havin more time off to start working on stuff. I wanna try to add the suggestion here and finish work on my other project. More on that once I know it works ^_^.
