xCT is a very lightweight combat text addon (20- 30kb mem usage)
xCT has 4 frames, first for incoming damage/resists/absorbs, second for incoming healing, third for auras/mana/reactive abilities/combopoints and other text info, frame 4 is for damage and healing you deal .
also, xCT has a nice spam merger, so damage from your AOE spell is displayed like 100500 x20 instead of 20 lines of spammy sh*t. Same for healing spells
You can place the frames as you like, and resize them.
Type /xct unlock to move frames.
Type /xct lock to lock frames on desired position.
Type /xct test to launch sample output.
The configuration section is inside config.lua file. Read description carefully. you can configure xCT per-class and per-character inside xCT.lua
config lines a pretty self-descriptive
xCT uses blizzard confuguration of combat text, so if you do not want to see auras or mana gains - disable them in blizzard setings and they'll dissapear.
Blizz CT settings a located in ESC->Interface->Combat Text
if you don't see any combat text on first use of xCT then go to ESC->Interface->Combat Text and enable things you want to see.
Improve a bit, main functionality reached.
You can't choose insert mode, blizzard bug, sorry. Messages will appear from bottom of the frames and go upwards.
