I deleted the other predefined filters aside from "Everything", modified and saved that one, and it loads with no issues every login for me. True, you can't seem to remove the extra bar on top of the window, but with the tabs hidden, I don't see it anyway unless I mouse over the area.
The only thing I'm missing in the new combat log is that there is no target filter =/
I like to filter mine based on myself and target, and as far as I understand, it's not possible with the current set of options *sad panda*
What I'm missing is filter out the stuff like "Frost" "Physichal" "Shadow" etc.
I don't need to know if it's shadow or not, I can already see it by the spellname itself by telling what kind of damage it is.
While the blizzard combat log is very good, and it appears you can change pretty much everything - their interface for changing it just plain sucks.
In addition to the above, it would be nice if you could change the colors. Its great that shadow is purple or whatever, but its not always readable as the purple color. Pally heals are holy, but the piss yellow color is awful.
What you can do with the blizzard one is great for those who know enough about LUA and the system to do it themselves, what about the rest of us shlubs? o)
I was asked how I produced my little addon that sets the strings for the combat log, so I figured I'd post it here for everyone to see. It's a little addon called "LCLFixer" (That's "Lanerra's Combat Log Fixer" :P). I'm reposting it here for convenience's sake.
Anywho, here you go:
## Interface: 20400
## Author: Lanerra
## Title: |cffff6000L|rCLFix
## Notes: Restructuring of Combat Log text output.
Another thing, about the combat log range.
It used to be much shorter and I want it the way it was before 2.4
I know you could add these lines into config.wtf in the WTF folder and change combat log range.
SET CombatDeathLogRange "60"
SET CombatLogRangeCreature "50"
SET CombatLogRangeFriendlyPlayers "50"
SET CombatLogRangeFriendlyPlayersPets "50"
SET CombatLogRangeHostilePlayers "50"
SET CombatLogRangeHostilePlayersPets "50"
SET CombatLogRangeParty "50"
SET CombatLogRangePartyPet "50"
But now this doesn't seem to work anymore.
Anyone knows the commands have been changed or how I can set the combat log range to this again?
