About NickAlert

Nick Alert scans incoming chat messages and alerts you when they contain one of your character names, nicknames, and triggers that you set up. It can also alert you to incoming whispers from specified people, or to Real ID messages from specified people. It can also alert you to people coming online and offline.

The nicks are saved per server. The scanning is case insensitive so that Tocar == TOCAR == tocar==Tocardamus so no matter how they type it is should match.

The triggers are saved per account and match case and lua regexs.

Nick Alert can output to MikScrollingBattleText if installed, its own moveable alert frame, play a sound to alert you, and even flash the edges of the screen, the alert frame is moveable (Left Button) and resizable (Right Button) while the frame is unlocked. Once the frame is locked all mouse input is passed through to whatever is under the frame

To use a custom sound file for the alert you need to make a directory called "\Interface\AddOns\NickAlert_CustomSounds" in the WoW directory and put your file called alert.mp3 or alert.ogg into it before you start WoW

  • for mp3 type "/nalert custommp3 on"
  • for ogg type "/nalert customogg on"

commands can be accessed by typing "/nalert"
"/nacf" will take you to the channel filter options. This filter is a whitelist for channels like "Trade" "Local Defense" "General" and such. If they are not in the list you will not be alerted about them

The Throttle function to stop people from sound spamming you is configurable from 1 to 60 in seconds and 1 to 60 alerts in that time before they don't alert you ( so, from 1 alert a minute up to 360 or just off ). ALL alerts are governed by the throttle. If ChatDebug is set on then it will display info lines on the throttle for feedback and setting it up

Also now has a control panel in with all the other ones and a sub panel for nickname management and chat channel management

New commands have been added

  • /nanl cmd option - Nick Alert NickList nicknames/ triggers the addon will scan the chats for add/rem/display/cfg
  • /nawl cmd option - Nick Alert Whisper List on/off/add/rem/display/cfg turn on/off the whisper alert feature and manage who it will alert you for
  • /nacf cmd option - like above but manages the channel filter list
  • /nabn cmd option - Real ID settings on/off/cfg
  • /namf cmd - manage the message frame on/off/lock/unlock

the cmd "cfg" will open the control panel to that lists specific page

all are available from the rewritten control panel plugin

    I will see what I can come up with... I am in the process of moving right now so it may be a bit... I still have to release the update that puts toasts into the alert frame (only online/offline) The update is on my PC which is spread across several (2 ) cities lol. It will also have color changing buttons on the real-id / battle-tag page so you won't have to rely on just the asterisks to mark the alerted people anymore...

  • #30

    I havent used NA for awhile and its not doing anything. I deleted the settings, updated to the newest version and added the battle.net name, char names I like to see but nothing comes up. I´m using prat and set it to not show the real id/battletag, but the char name currently whispering me instead. I reversed those settings and no change.

    Is this a prat problem? Or are there very specific settings I should use with the latest versions?

  • #32

    I believe I have found all the changes... again...  It even seems to work for me... if only someone would message me    lol

  • #31

    is it not working at all?   Blizz messed with the battlenet features a bit but I think it should support battle tags... do other chat types alert for you or is it all... I know it was having problems not unmarking a person for alerts (which I have fixed... just need to release)

    The battle tag alerts are on the same tab as the battle net real-ids and should work... I will do some testing on them to see.

  • #29

    working on adding support for the new Instance Chat

  • #27

    Love this addon, as I'm horrible at watching gchat.  I love knowing instantly when someone needs me etc.  Question.  Is there a way to increase or decease the volume of a custom sound file? 

  • #28

    there is no way for that... I could try and change the specific sound channel it is played to ("Master" (this will play the sound also with disabled sounds like before 4.0.1), "SFX", "Ambience", "Music". ) The only other option is to edit the file in an editor and increase the volume that way.

  • #23

    OK text size changing and the auto adding of char nicks, and the ability to have or not have the mode shown in the alerts,  has been done and is undergoing testing now...

    Is there an option to increase the font size inside the frame?

  • #22

    there is no option to change the font size... I will see what I can do

  • #26

    Big thanks for that :)

  • #25

    the option is there now   "/na fontsize"  valid values are between 7 - 24
    or you can use the gui config and use the slider (which also gives you a preview) and you also can shut off the mode text (Party, Guild etc) part of the message now

    My alt's names are not showing in the list.  By alt, I mean characters on the same account with the addon loaded.

  • #20

    I will re-add the auto add functionality, it got removed when whispers and real id got added because of the variable changes...

     

  • #24

    so now it will auto add (again) your character names as you log into them per server
