Description:

MSBT is designed to be an extremely lightweight, efficient, and highly configurable mod that makes it easier to see combat information by scrolling the information on the screen in separate, dynamically creatable scroll areas. It is a replacement for Blizzard's Floating Combat Text and Damage output.

Features:

  • Lightweight and efficient design.
  • Scroll incoming damage/heals, outgoing damage/heals, and notifications in separate configurable scroll areas on the playing field.
  • Display player and pet cooldown completion alerts.
  • Display loot alerts with a total of how many are now in inventory.
  • Add triggers that will allow you to show notifications based on a variety of conditions.
  • Assign a sound file to play for events/triggers.
  • Dynamically create new scroll areas and assign any event/trigger to them.
  • Customize the position, size, animation style, enabled state, font style, font size, font outline, and opacity for each of the scroll areas.
  • Customize each individual event's color, font style, font size, font outline, opacity, output message, enabled state, and scroll area.
  • Set "Master Font" settings that will be inherited by all of the scroll areas and the events in them unless they are overridden at the scroll area or event level.
  • Merge AoE data into one event with cumulative damage/healing done with number of normal and crits specified.
  • Show overhealing amounts against yourself or party/raid members.
  • Color unit names according to their class.
  • Color damage amounts according to damage type.
  • Show partial effects (resists, absorbs, vulnerabilities, etc) colored according to type.
  • Filter output information with a full suite of spam controls.
  • Load on demand options.
  • For mod developers:
    • Output your own scrolling messages with the MikSBT.DisplayMessage function instead of having to create your own frame and animation code. You can also use your own font by first registering it with MSBT via the MikSBT.RegisterFont function.
    • Create custom animation styles.
    • See the included API.html file for reference information.

    Hi !

    Is it possible to have crit displayed as hits, but with star on left and right?

    For example:

    542

    542

    *1084*

    542

     

    Thanks.

    I also just had it happen in Vortex Pinnacle reg while soloing trash. I had to log out to the character screen and back in to correct a misdirection bug that locks you out of misdirection if you don't fix it. I logged in and MDd trash to my pet and saw all the damage the pet was taking in my own Incoming area.

    I have this problem as well.

    Hi, troll hunter here, there is at least 1 circumstance where MSBT will show my pet's incoming damage as my own damage. Here is how to make it happen.

    Go to Deepholm, fly to Verlok Stand (northeast part of the map). There is a set of platforms in this area which is teeming with mobs. Find yourself some Verlok Grubthumpers.

    Find a safe place to land where the mobs will not path into you, pull out your beetle pet. Log out in that spot to the character screen. Then, log back in. Then, run up if nessary and misdirect Verlock Grubthumpers straight to your pet. If it happens to you like it does to me, you'll see the pet's incoming stuff in your own incoming area, and if you have a pet damage area, it won't be visible there.

    Converted it from Wav to MP3 but converted it then to ogg to test that, but still no sound.

    it's in the Enemy killing blow i putted it, since my soundfile is 19kb is that too big then or does that costum sound bug for me?

    i tested it on several other notifications, it seems not to work on any of them

    I haven't read about this error anywhere else yet, but I can't get MSBT to recognize when I make changes to the font size in the settings menu. I go in, change the font sizes, but they are never reflected in the scrolling text. What could be causing this?

    hello i seams that ur addon crashes my wow client could u patch this it would be great

  • #3310

    Just wanted to give a thank you to the author of this addon.  Its always really nice to download a new addon "of a certain type" and it do exactly what you want it to.

    I was looking for an addon that would give me "combat text" to show me when I looted something.  I got tired of scrolling through loot logs or having to sit there with my bags open to see if I got a piece of loot I rolled on in a group.  Having to scroll through a loot log in a Dungeon or Raid means stopping what you are doing and standing still.  Now when I win something that shows up in my bags, I get a nice scrolling combat text saying I won "item name".  I was even more suprised with the addon that I could assign a little sound file, as well as set it to only show when I won an "Epic".

    So that was my main reason for downloading this addon, which it does wonderfully.  This addon does so much more than just that though.  Think of it as Blizzards scrolling combat text options, plus way more features.

    Highly recommend this to anyone.

  • #3309

    Is there a way to alter the strata to get combat text behind DBM bars.

    Yes, found it: in the MikScrollingBattleText folder in Addons.
    edit MsbtAnimations.lua and find line 535 and replace whatever is on it with
    animationFrame:SetFrameStrata("MEDIUM")

    I've seen this question posted several times, and have scrolled through pages of notes, but haven't seen an answer yet. I have created a new scroll area and would like to have certain info appear in that scroll area. In my case, I would like all my outgoing player dmg to show up in my typical scroll area, but I would like all my pet dmg to show up in this separate scroll area. I created the scroll area just fine, but how do I know direct certain events to that scroll area?

  • #3304

    I <3 this addon. Thank you so much!

  • #3302

    I was wondering if there was a way to add a scroll area for a specific spells dot damage? I would like to make ignite show in a different scroll area and I cant seem to figure out how to do this.
