Addon that shows on screen messages for certain events and channel activities. For all those people like me who can't keep track of chat frames while raiding ;-)

New -

  • 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.
  • Show class colors for author of messages.
  • Included 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.

/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.
