I went ahead and deleted my saved variables and updated from SVN yet again, and everything is now working as it should. I honestly am confused as to why it ever happened in the first place, because I wasn't using SCT at all prior to "installing" it a few days ago, so I had no old saved variables. Either way, I don't know if this is a resolution to a hidden bug or just a fluke occurrence that won't happen again, but I'm happy that it's working properly now. So it looks like we just went around in a big circle here. :P
Just to add, I did uncomment those lines and it seemed to display no matter what, even prior to deleting my saved variable files. As for my options, I left everything standard but added Buff Fades and Combo Points.
Amadeo, you are talking about SCTD damage right, not the WoW damage that appears over your targets head. I don't have any idea what it could. Not being able to reproduce it is making it impossible for me to track down. Can you try running only SCT/D and make sure its not some mod conflict. When it breaks, can you run these scripts seperately and tell me what each says:
About shadow damage, its supposed to be black, but that doesn't show up, so dark gray is the best I can do. Sorry if you don't like that =)
I'm sorry it took so long to get back to you, but I've done what you said. With all mods disabled other than SCT, the issue still happens. And yes, I do mean my damage being dealt to mobs, not incoming damage.
Please try getting latest if you are having the issue of SCTD damage turning off. I turned off all code related to PvP to see if that fixes it. If it does, I know its something around that. If it doesn't I'll know its elsewhere.
Ok, here's my latest info on it using newest SVN without PvP code:
On initial login, everything works fine. As soon as either the SCT or SCTD Menus are opened, the damage text stops displaying. If I reloadui, everything works ok again, but once that menu gets opened...even if you don't change a thing, it breaks it.
I'm not sure what the problem is. It seems to be working fine for others in all cases, but they may not be a on pvp server. What happens if you just open up the sctd menu using /sctd menu? Is the Enabled box still checked at the top? What about all the event options? Also, just to be sure make sure you have latest off the SVN.
And yes, I wouldn't touch the "Enable in PvP" option when on a PvP server.
Everything in the SCTD menu looks fine...a few times I've gone in there and it's disabled itself, not sure why or how that happened. Anyway, with it enabled, I get Miss/Parry/Block where SCTD info should show, but nothing related to my damage!
Edit: Not sure if this helps, but I just realized my Deep Wounds shows up there too (I'm a Warrior).
Amadeo, hk2717, are both of you on PvP servers? Do you have the "Enable WoW Damage while in PvP" options checked? If you do then SCTD won't ever show since you are almost always in PvP mode. I've been trying to think of a way to make the option more understandable, as a lot of people don't seem to.
If you aren't on a PvP server, I'm not sure what it could be. Any additonal info you can provide or screenshots would be helpful.
If I check that, I get the typical WoW damage display...but what about using SCTD? I would like to use that regardless if I'm on a PvP server or not! It's too hard to see WoW's damage frame with SCT's messages hiding under it. I know I can move the SCT frame, but that's not really what I want to do...
Edit: Yeah, I'm on a PvP server. Forgot to clarify. :)
I love the new profiles and I hope to see more. Setting up SCT can be a little intimidating to lazy people such as myself.
About the current version on SVN...I'm not seeing any of my outgoing damage against NPCs in SCT/SCTD...and everything appears to be fine on my end. SCTD settings are all normal and the message frame is there and 100% opaque.
