[ADDON] MegaphonePlus: WB leader's messages in the middle of the screen

Post#1 » Fri Dec 29, 2017 12:21 pm

I was looking for an addon that will show the WB leader's messages in the center of the screen like system notifications.
Apparently there once was an addon like that called Megaphone but it wasn't working anymore.

I made some changes to the addon bringing it up to date and also taking the opportunity to add a couple of new features like alternative fonts/styles and the ability to hide the leader's name.

DOWNLOAD from google drive.
You may also find it on Idrinth's Tools.

The only dependency is "LibSlash" but you probably already have it.

So here it is:
Image
No special configuration needed. Just install the addon and join a Warband.

Type /mp to bring up the options:
Image

You can chose from a variety of fonts and styles:

See the list with /mpshow, set the font with /mpfont (e.g. "/mpfont f8" or "/mpfont order").
Unfortunately these fonts are limited to the pre-existing system alerts.

You can also hide the WB leader's name with /mphide
Image

Finally, note that in real RvR situations there are tons of messages appearing in the alert area. From quest progress or achievements to area names popping up on area change, these messages flood the notification area so you should consider removing some of them in order to have the important things be more prominent.

You can do that from the in-game options:

Hope that this will make PUG WBs more fun for leaders and members alike.

I'm not doing many SCs myself so I didn't have the chance to play around with that.

I'll look into it.

This mod should be added to the client and be enabled by default, just like buffhead and other useful mods.

After many hours of trying things and failing, it dawned to me; are there even Leaders in SCs? After all the things I've tried I don't believe so.

What I could try to add in a future update if people are interested, is the option to manually assign a person, in addition to the WB leader, and have their messages appear as an alert too. This should work in the SCs too.

A very useful addon for any warband. Leader commands right up and center, just where you want them to be.
