About xCT+ Combat Text

Updating for WoD! - Public Beta Available

(See Other Downloads)

Created for optimal performance in the toughest fights, a rugged combat text add-on is finally ready to be put to the test!

OVERVIEW

xCT+ is immensely based off the add-on xCT by braindump (aka Affli). It strives to be as minimalistic as possible while maintaining ease of use. That is why, introduced in version 3, you can now configure all settings while in-game.

Overall, xCT+ is a replacement for Blizzard’s scrolling combat text. It is superior to the default combat text because xCT+ organizes incoming healing, incoming damage, and outgoing damage/healing into their own frames, while minimizing spam.

FEATURES

For those that have used Affli’s xCT Add-On, xCT+ expands the functionality of its predecessor. New features include:

  • An In-Game Configuration Tool
  • Frames for tracking Criticals, Loot and Money, Spell Procs, Unit Power (Mana), and Class Combo Points
  • A grid when positioning the frames
  • Tons of new options and features
  • A redesigned Spell Merger for those Spammy Spells
  • Setting Profiles
  • And many more exciting new features!

    Ya, that is currently the only work-around to this problem.   Might be fixed in the future, or I might just remove the merging of dual weilding merging

  • #26

    Gday!

    Massive fan of your addon. If I could humbly request a way to track Shadow Orbs in the class "combo point" box (the same area in which evengelism stacks are tracked) in any future interations that would be brilliant. 

    Cheers!

    xCT+ will be replaced by "liteCT - Name Pending" very soon. Most of my time has been put into developing a new engine that can be updated and extended easier while still staying lite and super fast.  liteCT will be using libraries for its debut feature, a in-game graphical configuration tool, but I will not let any libraries near the combat text routine.

    I know a lot of you love xCT and by extension xCT+ (^-^) so I am going to keep xCT+ updated at least for the foreseeable future.  As of right now, xCT+ will have a feature freeze and updates will only be for stability.

    Expect liteCT in about a month depending on the rest of my schedule.

    I hope you are enjoying MoP.  I have yet to purchase the expansion, but I probably will when liteCT gets closer to completion.

    Hi,

    I read comments but I didn't see anyone asking.

    Is it possible to change de direction where the text goes ? I'd like the text to go up and not down (talking about the damage taken) and i don't know how to change it  >_< 

    Thanks for the great work !

  • #22

    Have you considered making a GUI for configuring the addon?

     

  • #23

    Yes! I am hoping to get something releasable near the end of this month.  Been quite busy, so I had to keep putting it off.

  • #19

    Hey there, I really like the addon but I have a query regarding fonts, is it possible to change it? Thanks

  • #20

    Actually, yes! In xCT+'s current state, it does require some very, very basic Lua knowledge.  In the xCT folder, you will find a "config.lua" file that contains all the config options.  You may edit the paths of the fonts to change the fonts around.  Remember, adding a font to the xCT folder will require you to restart the game.

    Looooooove it  that best addon!  Thank you!

     

  • #17

    Any plans on adding the number compressing option? Like instead of 123235 hits, rounding the number to 123,2k and so on?

  • #21

    This would be an epic feature!

  • #16

    Hi!Thanks for the update. Could you add Daybreak PROC at the AOE list?

    http://www.wowhead.com/spell=121129

    ct.aoespam[121129] = true

    also old holy wrath id is now denounce wich is the exorcism, no need to add it to aoespam(ct.aoespam[2812]  = true  -- Holy Wrath)

    thanks!

    Stay cool ya'll! Just uploaded version 2.5.1 with support for the MoP patch coming out in a few hours.  If Curse is not too swamped, you should all have an update waiting for you when you login for the first time!

    Good luck to you all!  Please report any bug or annoyance and I'll see what I can do.

  • #14

    Just wanted everyone to know that I am planning on a update this week that will tie a lot of these update together.  I haven't been very neat with the version control... :D

    Also, xCT+ will support MoP!!  An update for 5.0.4 is in the works, more details to follow.
