About EventAlert

The addon will notify you in the middle of your screen with an icon, name of the spell that has procced, the time left on the proc and will make a subtle sound. EventAlert is also able to handle more than one proc at a time (this option was not available in previous versions).

I am not fond of addons that have very complicated installation and setups. The mod should work on install without any config, but if you wish to change any options use the following command: /ea options
To see a more detailed list of what options are avaiable to the mod, just check out the screenshot of the options pane.

Quick Backstory: I created this addon as a test for myself as my first "from the ground up" addon. Most of my coding in WoW LUA was taking other addons and just fixing them so they work from minor bugs or whatnot.

Anyhow, I needed a mod that was lightweight and did only what I wanted it to do, and that was warn me when one of my spells or talents procced something I needed. Thus, EventAlert was born. There are likely to be bugs, explosions and not so good things that may come from this mod. I'm sorry in advance! If you find a bug, please let me know so I can fix it.

Also, if anyone finds a spell/talent/etc that they want watched, please let me know and I will add it!

Greetings everyone, my name is Menio and I will be taking over the maintenance of this addon from CurtisTheGreat, the original author!

I'll start with an important note: If you used EventAlert before in your current WoW folder, you will need to delete the EventAlert.lua and EventAlert.lua.bak files located at:
\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\ACCOUNTNAME\SavedVariables for this addon to work.

Above is CurtisTheGreat's original description, with updated class abilities.

Bugfix: Fixed timers for alerts with more than 30 seconds remaining.
Bugfix: Attempting to fix an ongoing issues with AltItem alerts.

    I've had a look at the code and the main issue appears to be changed/removed spell IDs. I actually have a working version now (for priests anyway, as my main is a priest).

    I'm not sure if there's much interest in getting this addon fixed for MoP, but as PowerAuras hasn't been updated either this addon will do for me for the time being.

  • #1228

    You say you have this working for priests??? Can you please tell us how. Thanks in advance.

  • #1222

    So anyone figured out the change to get this working again?

    Mist of Pandaria EventAlert

    I have always been a really great fan of this addon. Would love someone to update this addon for mist of pandaria/beta. I won't mind paying for your work as this addon is really important to me.

  • #1227

    I would also pay to get this add-on updated.Since overpower now procs quickly with my warrior in PvP I would love to hear (the bells sound) it proc instead of having to keep my eye on the small green overpower message that is hard to see on my screen when I'm in the middle of 5 enemies.

    I changed the Sound Output to Play on the Master Channel because i often Play with Sound disabled.

    To do this, edit EventAlert\lua\main.lua

    Search for (line ~357):

    replace it with:

    PlaySoundFile(EA_Config.AlertSound, "Master");

    Some people have not seen the fix for this addon, I'm just posting here to let people see it. Credits to floppydawg for the fix

    To fix this addon, open main.lua with a raw text editor (Notepad works fine). Location of file will be something like C:\Games or Similar\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\EventAlert\lua\main.lua Go to line 90 (in notepad, disable WordWrap to enable going to specific lines).

    The section you are looking for should look something like this:

        if (event == "COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED") then
      local EA_eventType = select(2, ...);        
      local EA_arg7 = select(7, ...);        
      local EA_arg9 = select(9, ...);        
      local EA_arg10 = select(10, ...);        
      local EA_arg13 = select(13, ...);
    If you have previously edited it, it may have different numbers after select(.
        if (event == "COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED") then
      local EA_eventType = select(2, ...); 
     local EA_arg7 = select(9, ...);        
     local EA_arg9 = select(12, ...);        
     local EA_arg10 = select(13, ...);        
     local EA_arg13 = select(16, ...);
    EventAlert works again  :D

    Re: EventAlert Sound Level

    Is it possible to change the sound level.  If I turn up the volume all the way on my speakers, I can barely hear it, and everything else blasts.
