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.

    Unseens:

    I believe there is a combat message when his bubble drops. If there is, then you you'd just need to follow the instructions in the readme for creating a search pattern trigger (one of the FAQs covers it).

    Amz:

    Make sure that the two folders are directly under the Addons folder. Depending on what you used to unzip it, the program will sometimes create a folder with the same name as the zip and then put the contents under it. Failing that, you might want to download it again to make sure the download wasn't corrupted somehow.

    Ultronis:

    Make sure you don't have sounds disabled in WoW or MSBT. Also verify you have the extension as well when you enter the file name (LowMana.mp3 for example). Depending on your platform it could be case sensitive too.

  • #262

    Hello, I'm just wondering, when I try to add a sound file to play when a certain trigger happens it doesn't seem to play for some reason. I've restarted WoW multiple times to try to get it to work but nothing. Also I tried using the original sound files supplied with it but they have stopped working as well. Is there something I have to enable within the trigger or the actual mod to allow soundfiles to be played?

    Thank you in advance =)

  • #261

    ok cant get this to show up at all, Its in the proper folder, it's 100% in there, and i can go into my addon list, nothing

  • #260

    Is there anyway to setup a notification to tell you when a pally's bubble is down?

  • #259

    Lleyna:

    If KTM has already outputs messages, it should be a simple matter of calling the MikSBT.DisplayMessage function from within KTM's code.

    Slipsknut:

    Only thing I can suggest is that you make sure the syntax is correct, the font exists and is in the right directory, and that you have completely exit WoW.

    Coolblue:

    Not yet. That's planned for version 5.

    Feme:

    No. I'm pretty sure there are mods for that specific purpose though. Maybe Good Damage Font would be one of them?

    Kollektiv:

    ^ means anchored to the start, and $ means anchored to the end. For example if you were looking for ab, "^ab" would match abc12, but not 12abc.

    .* means any character 0 or more times and .+ means any character 1 or more times. For example "gets hit for 15 .*damage" would match both "gets hit for 15 Nature damage" and "gets hit for 15 damage" since the .* said some characters could be there or not (0 or more times).

    MSBT's included readme has the complete reference to lua search patterns in it.

  • #258

    What's the difference between .* and .+....etc.? and how do ^ and $ work? Great mod btw

  • #257

    Is threre any way to change the "game damage" defaults font with msbt?

  • #256

    I might be totally missing an option somewhere but is there a way to change the alpha on the fonts?

  • #255

    i think i made this right .. i changed font as it said in the readme and when i changed to that font and attacked a mob it came up a window saying it was an error or sumthin'

  • #254

    Any idea if there's a way to export KTM threat data, or atleast notifications, to an MSBT scroll area?

  • #253

    Jonong:

    No. You can't have partial coloring in triggers.

    Deeravenger:

    Not in the current version, but you can create a suppression "Vampiric Embrace" so you don't see any healing from it.

    Hezghul:

    The merging can't be disabled for now.

    Psionic:

    There is another mod called MSBTCooldowns made by Dorje for that purpose. It's available on wowinterface.

  • #252

    hello mik. is it possible to include cooldown text for timed skills ? like "shadowfury is ready" or "will of forsaken is ready" when the timer expired ? i saw it in some pvp video a guy made. got no clue what addon it is, but it would be nice if you could include it. if possible maybe even show a message when a trinket is ready. i didnt read through all posts so i dont know if this has been asked before.

  • #251

    hi, is there any way to seperate windfury and stormstrike attacks or normal melee attacks, that are made at the same time?

    or just how to disaple the merge function? thanks

  • #250

    Love this addon. BTW, is it possible to have a cutoff for gains? For example, I don't want to see every HP gain I get from a shadow priest's Vampiric Embrace, maybe just see those that are greater than 400 hp (i.e. actual heals). It would decrease the amount of spamming on HP gained. Thanks.
