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.

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 errors and suggestions on using the provided forms.
Please post all questions and comments on the offical EavesDrop thread.

  • #109
    Fixed it.
  • #105
    Fix for 4.2, update lines 397, 407, 436, 690, 964 to reflect new combat log, change lines to include 2 extra flags sourceRaidFlags and destRaidFlags

    timestamp, event, hideCaster, sourceGUID, sourceName, sourceFlags, sourceRaidFlags, destGUID, destName, destFlags, destRaidFlags,

  • #106
    in EavesDrop.lua I should say
  • #107
    690 is if spellname then? Nothing to change there.

    Otherwise, this still isn't working for me. No fps issues, but nothing appears in the window except combat start, combat end, and total damage done/taken/etc, which is 0 because it's not detecting the combat log I suppose.
  • #108
    Looks like you meant 960? I made the changes there, but still nothing is showing in the window.
  • #104
    if anyone cares I have a warlock friend who complains about soul link spamming the window him damaging pet so i edited it so that that is turned off since it shows it in his damage(absorbed). I am sure the editor could probably add a better solution but this worked for him.

    I went to line 421 and added this line above it.
    if fromPlayer and toPet then return end
  • #103
    every time I load into a differnt zone my eavesdrop resets the postion. even if I lock it into place, it still shifts postion when I zone into a differnt zone. not enough to make me stop using it but very very annoying. please fix this.
  • #102
    If a spell is complete overheal Eavesdrop shows it as a full heal. Is there any way for it to show only healing actually done vs actual + overheal?
  • #101
    Big thanks for update.
  • #100
    +1 THANK YOU! I cant comfortly play without your mod. it simple and super in one time! I still dont meet any replacement for Eaves!
  • #99
    Thanks for the update.
  • #98
    Its working again, thanks for updating, this addon is awesome.
  • #96
    I tried using the tactics employed by the folks here who were able to edit the LUA file to fix Eavesdrop for 4.1 to attempt to fix another combat log type addon ( - to no avail.

    I won't pretend to know anything about coding; maybe if someone else could take a peek, they'd see if it's an easy fix or if the addon is a lost cause.

  • #94
