About xCT

xCT is a very lightweight combat text addon (20- 30kb mem usage)

xCT has 4 frames, first for incoming damage/resists/absorbs, second for incoming healing, third for auras/mana/reactive abilities/combopoints and other text info, frame 4 is for damage and healing you deal .
also, xCT has a nice spam merger, so damage from your AOE spell is displayed like 100500 x20 instead of 20 lines of spammy sh*t. Same for healing spells

You can place the frames as you like, and resize them.

Type /xct unlock to move frames.
Type /xct lock to lock frames on desired position.
Type /xct test to launch sample output.

The configuration section is inside config.lua file. Read description carefully. you can configure xCT per-class and per-character inside xCT.lua

config lines a pretty self-descriptive

xCT uses blizzard confuguration of combat text, so if you do not want to see auras or mana gains - disable them in blizzard setings and they'll dissapear.
Blizz CT settings a located in ESC->Interface->Combat Text

if you don't see any combat text on first use of xCT then go to ESC->Interface->Combat Text and enable things you want to see.

Improve a bit, main functionality reached.
Dispel messages.
Interrupt messages.
Known issues
You can't choose insert mode, blizzard bug, sorry. Messages will appear from bottom of the frames and go upwards.

Credits and thanks:
ALZA - for some ideas, xCT is based on LightCT.
Shestak - for some ideas, testing and inspiring me to make this addon.
Rostok - for fixes and healing code.

bleeding edge version is Always on my github

    Really nice addon, loving it!

    I've tried to set up the combo counter for my warrior to show Taste for Blood and Bloodsurge procs (got the spell ID from the buff in-game (125831) by changing to the following in the xct.lua:

    elseif ct.myclass == "WARRIOR" then
       if ct.myspec == 1 then -- Arms
    ct.classcomboIDs = {
        [125831] = true, -- Taste For Blood

       elseif ct.myspec == 2 then -- Fury
    ct.classcomboIDs = {
      [46915] = true, -- Bloodsurge

       elseif ct.myspec == 3 then -- Protection
       ct.combowindow = false


    Also changed my hunter's survival ID to Thrill of the Hunt talent by doing the same:

    elseif ct.myspec == 3 then -- Survival
       ct.classcomboIDs = {
    [34720] = true, -- Thrill of the Hunt

    but none of these seem to work. could you please tell me where else i'd need to change something?

    xCT does not have combo counter.

    xCT+ does.

    Please seek for help here

    What to do??

    seems you are using modified version of xCT.

    this (my) version only have about 1200 lines of code and no "classcomboIDs"
    so ask the person who've modified your version for support.

  • #9

    updated to 4.3.0

  • #7
    This addon disables floating combat text and doesnt display scrolling damage anyway, useless :S
  • #8

    Not true at all. It displays both incoming and outgoing healing and damage just fine. Perhaps yours is misconfigured?

  • #6
    Are you going to update it for 4.2?
