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.

    More than a year since update, bugs exist - is this abandoned? Im starting back after being gone a year, and have found that many of the addons I used to use are now abandoned and possibly broken.

    Hello im using msbt for my monk char in wow. I was able to add sound effect to my Fist of Fury using trigger event option, then aura application. Using the same settings, i tried the same for my jab, rising sun kick, and flying serpent kick but no sound for some reason. Any suggestions on what i can do to fix this? Thanks.

    I stopped using Elvui and went back to Tukui after doing so I lost the combat text. The text is in both UI's but MSBT is not showing it with Tukui I've tried putting it in myself and it will not find the fount nor will a shared media addon place it in the selection.

    Fonts from shared media break the font selection popup.

    Hiya, using the latest R: v5.7.131 for 5.4.0 Sep 13, 2013 - the font sometimes still reverts to the standard MSBT one, a reload fixes it but would be nice to get fixed.

    Hi there,

    The fix on Sept 13 doesn't seem to have fixed fonts; I'm still unable to change them to anything but what I think is MSBT Adventure.

    Hi, im Italian player, i love your addon! ^^

    All work in italian client except that, when I collect the loot, the addon does not say anything (money works, items no).. There is a simple way to fix this ?

    Best Regards
