BigWigs Bossmods

605 - Disable boss messages to chat frame?

This isn't a bug and it's probably something really simple but I swear I've looked the addon up and down but can't find an option to enable/disable it. I'd like to disable the chat frame messages that show up indicating when a boss uses a certain ability. For example when Garalon uses 'Mend Leg', a message shows up in my chat frame saying "Garalon uses Mend Leg' etc. - I'd like to turn that off.

What version of the Big Wigs are you using?

Do you have an error log of what happened?

Please provide any additional information below. (example: localization of your client if not enUS or enGB)

    You cannot turn off boss emotes in chat, the BW option only applies to blocking the message from appearing in the middle of your screen.

    We never create descriptive warnings like "Garalon uses Mend Leg", that sounds more like an emote. Our warnings are generally spell alerts e.g. "Mend Leg".

    @funkydude: Go

    Nah, I don't have DBM installed, or any other boss mod addon for that matter. I think you may be on to something though in thinking that it's not BW that's actually sending the messages.

    I thought boss emotes were things like "Boss <x> becomes enraged." etc. and not those messages that show when they use specific abilities like the one I mentioned in my initial question.

    I've turned off boss emotes and queue'd for an LFR to test, will let you know how I go.

    Are you sure you're talking about BW messages not boss emote messages? Do you also have DBM installed?

    @Maat: Go

    Yeah I can see that option and it's unchecked. I just did an LFR to test it and the messages are still showing up in my chat frame. =S

    If there are no boss modules enabled and you type /bw the main BigWigs panel should open in the Interface panel. There you can find a "Chat frame messages" tickbox. I think that is what you are looking for.
