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.

This mod tracks the following events/procs:

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: Attempted to fix an issue with alt items staying on screen after they were supposed to go away.

    This AddOn doesnt work any more for Paladins :( - Does anyone know/have the fix? This thing is awesome.

    Fix for Elemental Shamans Lightning Shield:

    Open main.lua with an editor and go to line 103 (as described a few comments below how to do that)
    The code should look like that before:

    if (EA_eventType == "SPELL_AURA_APPLIED" or EA_eventType == "SPELL_AURA_APPLIED_DOSE" or EA_eventType == "SPELL_AURA_REFRESH") then
    if (EA_arg7 == UnitName("player")) then

    if (EA_Config.ShowSpellInfo) then
    DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("Spell Name: "..EA_arg10.." -- Spell ID: "..EA_arg9);

    change it to the following:

    if (EA_eventType == "SPELL_AURA_APPLIED" or EA_eventType == "SPELL_AURA_APPLIED_DOSE" or EA_eventType == "SPELL_AURA_REFRESH" or EA_eventType == "SPELL_ENERGIZE") then
    if (EA_arg7 == UnitName("player")) then
    if (EA_arg9 == 88765) then EA_arg9 = 324; end
    if (EA_Config.ShowSpellInfo) then
    DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("Spell Name: "..EA_arg10.." -- Spell ID: "..EA_arg9);

    I posted the whole block, but as you can see only line 103 changes and line 105 was added, the rest stays unmodified.
    Hope that helps.

    Golaluk, you are a god amongst men.

    Proc and Flash is another add-on that does something similar. I couldn't get this one to work again even with the adjustments listed below. If you are also having problems Proc and Flash may be for you.

    Thank you very much Floppydawg ^^ it's work
  • #1193
    This fix didn't work for me. Any ideas?
  • #1192
    Yes, it works fine after editing the lua file - many thanks to Floppydawg :)

    But another question. The last update for EA was from 01-22-2011....maybe there is no possibility to keep this addon working with the lua file trick in future patches. Anybody knows a similary addon that works so fine and uncomplicated like Event Alert? (I tried "Tell me When" but didn`t really come to a goal with this.....). Hope someone have a tip for me (and sorry for my bad english ;)

    Since this addon was last updated, three new flags have been added to COMBAT_LOG_EVENT_UNFILTERED. HideCaster (new flag nr. 3), srcFlags2 (new flag nr. 7) and dstFlags2 (new flag nr. 11). Tnx Zonker:

    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(.

    Change this section to:

    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 =)
    Similar fixes should work for other addons as well, such as DoTimer.
