About BetterCombatText (discontinued (see inside for replacement))

It has happened ladies and gentlemen! Someone more skilled than me made a similar addon with the features I and all of you wanted.

I tried to learn Lua but the time wasn't on my side with work and hitting the gym and then playing wildstar and watching movies and tv-shows etc.

The replacement can be found here:

It does the same as mine and more. You can choose your own font and sizes and frames are a work in progress.

Thank you all for the downloads. It was a pleasure making it and who knows, maybe in the future I can actually make something awesome!

See you all at launch!

    I'm very happy to hear you are returning this to development.  One of my favorite addons in WoW was Mik's Scrolling Battle Text.  I would love a way to have all Incoming everything on the Left and Outgoing everything on the right, with Stuns / CC, etc... in the middle-bottom or something to that effect for easier quick-watching of what's going on.

    Your new re-write I can imagine is going to be great!!

    I still use this mod because it's awesome and AnotherSCT isn't really a replacement. No errors, it's still working amazingly well.

    Thanks for the support. I am starting development again of this addon but will do a rewrite and make it better then what I had. See also my reply below for more details.

    Man i dont like that other addon. Maybe i just havent messed with it enough but yours look better at default. Wish you would continue

    Hi, I am resuming this addon since the other developer seems to be inactive.

    I started today again from scratch and this time I wont be making a copy of the addon but instead just modify the function that I want to change. So my addon should work nicely with others.

    I got the damage and healing done already fixed but it seems the healing recieved and the deflect/dodge events etc are in different functions (which makes sense) but the font type is also in that specific functions.

    I am trying to come up with a way to elegantly change all the font without making 10 functions for a simple thing.

    I am also going to try and create a options menu. This will be later down the road. First, I want the basic layd down first in a correct way and then the options.

    Thanks for the support. I dont know much LUA but I am going to give it a good try this time. :-)

    can you add options for text resize,

    i like the number sizes, but when it says "stun", "knockdown", etc , is too small for playing pvp

    thank you

    The text for crits seems a bit stretched out and blurry. Regardless this is a big improvement over the default UI. Thanks!

  • #3

    Can you put in an option to change size and font types? 

    I like how the numbers display I'd just like the default font they currently have.

  • #1

    Do you plan on making this addon like the "Scrolling combat text" from WoW?

  • #2

    It was my intention but unfortunatly I don't have the time to learn LUA. I did try but the time isnt there for me.

    I did program in the past hence I can read the LUA code and tinker with it (which I did) and came up with this until someone else makes something truly spectacular.

    I am sure come launch someone will make a nice scrolling combat text like addon like in WoW.

    In the meantime this is my solution!
