About EavesDrop

PLEASE NOTE: Non-enUS clients may have errors or strange behavior.

What is it? - A simple combat log that displays events similar to how SCT/D would in a log, using icons to display spells/skills. It seperates incoming events (left side) from out going events (right side) from misc. events (middle).

What all can it show?
- Your hits, spells, misses, heals, etc...
- Incoming damage, spells, heals, buffs, debuffs, etc...
- Power gain
- Honor, Reputation, SKill, and Experience gain
- Mob/People you have slain
- Combat start/stop
- Timestamps and details in tooltips
- High hit stat tracking for both incoming and outgoing skills.
- Combat Summaries
- Shift+Click to paste events of history into Chat Edit Box

Where did it come from? - Original idea by Bant. Coding help/samples from Andalia`s SideCombatLog and CombatChat.

How do I use it? - Unzip EavesDrop into your interface\addons directory. For more info on installing, please read install.txt. Now just run WoW and once logged in, you will see the EavesDrop in the middle of your screen. Left click the EavesDrop Tab to drag it. Right click the EavesDrop Tab to see the options menu.

FAQ
My peridoic damage is not showing up in the combat log or on the screen! How do I fix it? - You have turned off periodic damage on the Advanced Options under Interface options. Make sure the "Periodic Damage" check box is checked, even if you have Damage unchecked.

How do I reset EavesDrop or load another users settings? - EavesDrop uses the Ace2 profile system. By default all characters use the same profile. You may change this for each character using the Profile area of the option menu. You can reset the options for the current profile using the Rest option in the menu.

How do I change the fonts? - EavesDrop uses the games default fonts. You will need to use a font program like ClearFont of Fontabulous to change it.

Please post all questions and comments on the offical EavesDrop thread.

    Please add a simple filter option to disable/enable certain spell types and if they are from other people than myself. For example I dont want to see other heals on me, just myself as a dd.

  • #132

    Is there any way to remove my "damage done" spells from the window and keep only "damage taken" and "healing done"?

  • #131

    Is there a reason the max number of lines is limited to 20? Would it be possible to have that cap raised?


    I put the window on one side of my screen, remove the border, and make it as thin and tall as possible, since that lets me see the most amount of information. It turns the side of my screen into a little damage/healing ticker. But it's too short, because the max lines are 20. :(


    Great mod, btw.

    Server/Realm name

    Hi,

     

    Been using Eavesdrop for a long time now. However since cross realm raids, the name of the target/player + realm name takes too much space and the damage/heal value gets pushed off. I use a narrow setup and would like an option to remove the 'realm' name until I hover on the entry.

    I'm prepared to edit the LUA if needed.

     

    Thanks for supporting this addon through all these years.

    Any way we could get a damage filter and sliders that went up higher to say 60k or unlimited?

    The damage filter would be to elminate my dots which are very spammy and would be nice if it went very high for damage for use in fire when Ignite is ticking for around 60k.

    The healer filter needs to be higher because my Rune of Power tics every 3 seconds for 4241+ health and is very spammy.

    I'd like to be able to set it see my direct damage through Arcane Blast, Arcane Missiles and Arcane Barrage and this would be easy with those filter settings mentioned.

    battle-pet related - is it possible to have battle-pet events (damage and buffs, etc) show on eavesdrop?

  • #129

    I was thinking the same.

    Please add this functionality, if possible.

    Hi, I keep getting this error while using skinner:

    Not sure whether eavesdrop is causing it or not.

  • #124

    Anyway to resize the frame?

  • #123

    Should be fixed now.

  • #122

    Looks like patch today has reduced my eavesdrop to a nonresponsive white rectangle.

    Hello Grayhoof,

    thank you for this addon, its great. Can you please make it possible to set the dmg and heal filter higher than 2k? I think its better without slider, just a textbox is enough. Any fixed maximum value for filter maybe doesnt scale with future expansions of wow.

    A second wish is to get the numbers shorter, examples:

    • 1245 -> 1k
    • 15487 -> 15k
    • 654875 -> 654 k
    • 2154875 -> 2m

    A last and not so important suggestion is to make it possible to switch between effective and overall dmg or heal, examples what to show, if 1k dmg done, 2k absorbed:

    • 1k
    • 1k (2k)
    • 3k

    Thank you very much for this great addon, greetings

    osborn

    I changed the filters so I dont see heals on me smaller than 1.000. But my pet gets tons of those events. I want to see certain pet events and I dont want to disable pet events completely. It is possible to build a module to edit pet events like player filters?
