Broker: ChatAlerts
Version: 1.3 r020
by: burny_dd [More]
Addon that shows on screen messages for certain events and channel activities. (For all those people like me who cant keep track of chat frames while raiding ;-))

New -

* Added 'Raid Warning' as possible text alert output.
* For text alerts assign any of the possible areas provided by display addons (SCT, MSBT, Parrot)
* Make messages sticky or floating for SCT, MSBT, Parrot or the Blizzard Floating Combat Text
* Test text alerts for all message events in the 'Test Alert Locations' section in the options.
* Included Battle.net conversations.
* 'Yell' no longer bundled with 'Say' but own event.
* Option to show alerts in combat and out of combat.
* Option to wrap lines at a specific line length.
* Channel and chat settings shown in their respective colors in tooltip.
* Removed own spam-filtering attempts.
* Spam filtering through external addons. Set option 'Message Filters' to apply filters of external spam-addons before processing messages.

Features -

* Supports two different types of alerts: Text alerts & Sound alerts
* Text alerts can be displayed in the UI Error Message Frame, SCT, MSBT, Parrot or the Blizzard Floating Combat Text
* Chat types supported: Raid, Battleground, Party, Guild, Officer, System, Battle.net, Whisper, Say, Yell, Emotes, Monster emotes/yells
* Channels supported: Receive alerts for Blizzard Channels like General, Trade etc or custom channels
* Each chat type and channel can have assigned it's own display location. If none is specifically set global setting will be used.
* Filter options to highlight only selected messages (Player name, keywords)
* Whitelist filter matches each single word (ignores case)
* Looting alerts: Receive alert messages for rolls and items looted
* Text alerts inherit the colors used in the Chat Frame.
* Profile support for settings.

Install -

Copy the Broker_ChatAlerts folder to your Interface\AddOns directory.

Commands -

/bchatalerts arg
/bca arg

With arg:
menu - display options menu
version - display the version information
help - display this help

Usage -

* Set global option where all alerts will be displayed. For each messsage event and channel an individual display location can be selected.
* All 4 supported display locations can always be set in the options. Locations that are not available are grayed out but still can be selected.
* Default UI Frame is fallback location if non-available locations is set for display. This way temporarily disabled addons won't mess with your settings.

Heya, recently updated to the latest version, but I'm having a couple problems with it. It looks like the addon is working to display System notifications to the middle of the screen properly, along with the sound notification and all. However, it doesn't do it for private messages, party chat, or anything else.

I've been having LUA errors with it too. It seems to want to fight with any addon with an Ace3 library in it. (e.g. Bagnon, sct, Mapster, etc) All of them are updated, and I even installed the latest Ace3 library to see if it would fight with that too, and it did. Not sure what to do here, and I don't want to give up on this addon as it is my favorite. :\

Sorry, that was my fault with a malfunctioning routine for updating the old options format. Think I must have written that one during a blackout ^^; Should be working now. :-)

Just installed this.

No error msgs at all....from this mod or any other.
Thing is, I can't change any of the settings.
No matter what pull-down I use in the config panel it won't select the choice I click.

Also, I turned off loot msgs using the broker panel, but it didn't recognize the setting.
It showed the change was made, but did not implement it.
I even reloaded the UI to see if that made any difference....It didn't.

I wish I had error msgs to give you.

*cough* So much for testing and quality control. This bug slipped my notice since the last big code restructuring 3 months ago. Thanks for pointing it out. Fixed now in Version 1.2 r013 :-)
