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.

    Pelee:

    Yes you can still turn off over healing. Click the "Partial Effects" button then uncheck "Overheals."

  • #133

    Is there an option to disable the showing of overheal in-/Outgoing? I do not find it and i believe there was an option not so show it in an previous Version !? (hope you'll understand my simple english ^^)

  • #132

    Quart:

    I changed the font, so maybe that's the difference. The old font was "Adventure" which is sill there. Maybe if you change it to that font it will look as it did before?

  • #131

    I loved this addon before nerf *cough* patch (Rogue here), and I'm happy to have found it updated now.

    Anyway there is a little issue To me seems that the graphic of the words of this sct, looks more unfocused than the previous version before nerf...patch..

    Any info about? O.o

  • #130

    I always liked Scrolling Combat Text, but when I found this, the amount of options availible is amazing. I like being able to place the scrolling text where I want it. It also does not drop my framerate either, very good work.

  • #129

    in french wow

  • #128

    Jojobinks:

    Try these things:

    Outgoing events category.

    2. Reset the profile with the button on the General tab.

    If neither of those fix the problem, what language client do you have? It should be working with the German, French, Spanish, and English clients, but It will not work with Chinese and Korean clients.

  • #127

    hello,

    this is a good addon but some one can help me pliz, i have try the 4.01 and in outgoing i don't have my DOT and CASTER damage 'the melee damage work)

    help me pliz

  • #126

    HAHA, sorry my blindnes and way to tired from work when i sat down with it.

    Found the font button with eas :/

    Thanks for the tip of WH.

    Again i bow down to the mod \o/

    Cheers again from the King.

  • #125

    Mysticrose:

    Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated.

    King_Mike:

    There is a mod called WitchHunt that is capable of doing spell alerting through MSBT.

    You can adjust the size of the text in the interface (/msbt) by clicking the "Master Font Settings" button (or the font icon for a scroll area or individual event to adjust only those). Unfortunately, 32 is the highest it will go though as the game itself won't take font sizes bigger than that.

    As far as crit positioning, I'll have to think on it. I didn't really design it around being able to do that, so I'll have to see if there is a way I can work it in.

  • #124

    What can i say, its awsome, just amazing.

    BUT, one thing i'm nissign that i havent seen in any scrollers. I would like a own position for my crits.

    It might been i've missed it somhow in here but i cant see it, it would be great to have.

    One more thing are you planing on any form of spell alert? And a way to make the text bigger.

    Thanks again for a clean scroller, very nicely done.

    Much love the King.

  • #123

    Just want to say thanks for the update, i like your mod so much better than the other similar mod. Thumbs up!

  • #119

    Mikk,


    There is a combat log entry for if it isnt recovered yet (You fail to perforn Disarm. Not yet recorvered.), but there is no event type showing up. Without event types it isnt possible I gues? Is that what you mean?

  • #120

    Correct. If there is no event type for it, then it isn't possible.

  • #121

    Wondering if you will be updating this mod for the new patch, considering that it will not work as is now, after the patch hits.

    Also like to see [Extra attack] (sword spec) and [Spell Cooldowns] in the mod :)
