ChatAlert  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.5.1
by: Blythe [More]
What is ChatAlert? This addon will play a sound of your choice (from a short list of in-game sounds) for a variety of events in chat. Let me know if you'd like an in-game sound added to the lists! I just tried to grab a variety of non-obtrusive to very-intrusive options that aren't used frequently in the ambiance of the game. Current events on which you can receive an alert:
  • Whispers/Tells
  • NEW Your name said in chat
  • Group messages
  • Messages from contacts
  • When a contact comes online
  • When a contact goes offline
  • Each of your guilds' messages
  • Yells
  • /Say messages
  • Zone chat messages (although why you'd want this is beyond me)
  • NEW 5 custom words/phrases that will trigger an alert if said in chat
NEW You also have the option to silence any messages you send (enabled by default).

What's up next? Allow you to individually choose which contacts play a sound or not.

Kudos:
  • Arcane Scripters Guild and #ESOUIDev. Every time I jump in there, I come away with creative solutions to my LUA problems.
  • Aiiane/Aaeriele for patiently walking me through metatables.
  • Puddy for helping me understand how to use event handlers more efficiently/appropriately.
  • Flamage and Zolan for finding a bug with loading settings and helping me fix it.
  • Seerah for LibAddonMenu - so much time saved!
  • If you're interested in trying another addon with similar functionality: I've had a great time working through this with @zolannaloz and his version, Zolan's Chat Notifications, is probably worth a try! I also "borrowed" his idea to disable your own notifications.
  • Update 2.5.1 (2014-05-23): Per request, uploaded .zip file instead of .rar. Absolutely nothing about the addon itself has been changed.
  • Update 2.5 (2014-05-23): Updated for game patch.
  • Update 2.4 (2014-04-22): Fixed issue where if you chose "no sound" for contacts, they also wouldn't play a sound in /guild, /say, /zone, etc.
  • Update 2.3 (2014-04-18): Bug fix.
  • Update 2.2 (2014-04-17): Another bug fix. More clarity in the menu that both your @Account and Character name will trigger a sound if selected.
  • Update 2.1 (2014-04-16): Fixed a minor bug where saved settings weren't loading before chat messages started coming in.
  • Update 2.0 (2014-04-16): BIG UPDATE! Added notification option for if your name is said in chat, the ability to silence your own messages, and five fields that you can fill in with custom text to alert on (e.g. variations on your name, lfg messages, items for sale -- the sky's the limit).
  • Update 1.1 (2014-04-14): Fixed a technical issue that was causing issues for pChat users (and probably for folks using other chat addons). Big props to Puddy for recommending an easy fix and explaining so nicely how to do it!
  • Update 1.0 (2014-04-13): Added menu that allows for a few customized sounds, as well as more flexibility in what triggers the sound (see screenshot), including contacts logging on and off.

able to figure out what the problems are

So i found all the problems


Problem 1 = Friends log on log off no noise.

The event handling this has an added variable returned, therefore just have to manipulate which variable is being compared in the appropriate function.

Simple fix


Problem 2 = getdisplayname now returns empty string so can't use that to compare again who said what to filter out noises for your own text.

As well as the event that handles chat now returns char names with a ^Mx added on the end so when comparing it to your chars name it will always be false... only fix that i can figure out is to actually write in code for all your chars... when getting name use if charname = charname then charname = charname^mx.. sort of thing for all your chars.

That's sad that you stopped playing.

I haven't looked into the chat sounds, just friends logging on and off.

The event handler has changed.... All you have to do is in the .LUA file change (inside function ChatAlert.friend_status) the parameters (the info inside the parenthesis) to add one more, for ease of use i just added state1 and then put a 1 beside the word state every time it is used in that function.

That solved the problem of the sound when friends log on and off.

No sounds post update

My chat alerts no longer make sounds post the update (no errors though).

Is anyone else experiencing this behavior?

BTW, this addon is absolutely perfect in that it allows me to ignore all the noise unless something I need to respond comes through chat.

Thanks!

Totally bewildered by the filesize rant. Anyway, it's update to be a zip file instead of a rar file, so enjoy!
Thanks. I didn't expect you to be so reasonable (except for the childish rewording of my post). Thumbs up.
Haha, no worries. Sorry to be childish, I just felt like fighting fire with fire. Maybe the next time you request an update/upgrade, you can give the addon developer the benefit of the doubt as well.

Please STOP using RAR

Please stop using RAR. Use zip instead. You dont pay for bandwidth here so why save a few kb? Im not gonna install software to unpack RARs. Windows has builtin ZIP extract/browse support. Now if you really did want to save space, you would have used 7zip, which is better than RAR.

Good point. I probably won't get to it anytime soon, but if I go in to make more additions, I'll keep this one in mind.

Thank you for the heads up! Version 2.3 should be fixed, but please let me know if it continues to cause you problems.
