How do I stop combat log megascroll?

Postby fudomyou » Wed Mar 26, 2008 9:05 am

I'm having what seems to be a pretty common problem - every time I zone, my combat log spazzes out re-parsing every single action that has happened in the past hour-plus.

Does anyone know how to turn this off? I saw some kind of /script command and tried it, but I don't think it worked out well...

set your combat log to monitor yourself and only yourself.

I've done that. It still reparses the log every time I zone.

A blue posted /script to type for that. I would link it but the wow forums are down. It's in the ui section.

Fortunately, Bluetracker still works:

Subject: Fixing combat log spam when you zone

How to stop framerate lag due to refiltering when you zone:

Issue: When you zone from an instance to the outside world, the combat log goes through a massive loop, pasting every combat log message in the last 5 minutes.

Why would I want to do this fix?
· You have framerate issues when zoning
· You have recently been in a combat sessions where there are many combat log events (e.g. raid boss encounters)

Instructions
1. Select the “Everything” tab
2. /script Blizzard_CombatLog_CurrentSettings.settings.showHistory = false

This will prevent all combat log messages from being re-filtered when you zone.

Side-Effects:
This will also prevent you from seeing old messages with the “Everything” tab.

How to Undo:
If you accidentally set this on the wrong tab, select the broken tab and type:
/script Blizzard_CombatLog_CurrentSettings.settings.showHistory = true

These settings will be saved when you logout.

Also, you can try this:
/script CombatLogQuickButtonFrame_Custom:UnregisterEvent("PLAYER_ENTERING_WORLD")

You'll have to run this each time you log in, but should fix it for the session.

Thanks! I was looking for that earlier but couldn't find it, what with the forum maintenance.

I tried both but it had no effect at all.
