Gift me @phuein in-game, if you have extra crowns and appreciate my addons. (Can even ask which DLC I missed.) Thank you!

This is the updated, improved, and upgraded version of the same addon. It follows the way the game originally handles these events, and is compatible with LibChatMessage.

Added a settings menu with an option to just turn off all login/logoff notifications entirely.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. I'll add an option to manually test it in the settings, and also go over it again.

as of this morning I get this if it's enableduser:/AddOns/BestFriends2018/BestFriends.lua:82: attempt to index a nil value

note - there was some type of change that also broke libchatmessage - there is a code snippet on that page that fixes it or seems to.

not sure if this helps or not but :

Thank you this worked great. To clarify for folks who may have trouble, you edit Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\AddOns\LibChatMessage\LibChatMessage.lua and replace all 3 occurances of "CHAT_ROUTER:AddEventFormatter" with "ZO_ChatSystem_AddEventHandler".


BTW thanks for working on this

Yes, it's the latest version. I even did a fresh install, but it's hard to test unless a friend is around. As for the other addons I'm using:

Action Duration Reminder Advanced Member Tooltip Alchemy Unknown
Assist Rapid Riding Auto Rez Awesome Guild Store
Combat Metronome Craftbag Extended Destinations
Disable Addon Reminders Disable Custom Titles Dulgobon's Guild Reorder
Dulgobon's Lazy Set Crafter Dulgobon's Lazy Writ Creator Easy Travel
Essential Housing Tools FCO Item Saver Furniture Catalogue
Furniture Shopping List Godsend Grim Focus Counter
Harvest Map Hearth Home Filter Inventory Insight
Item Browser Lorebooks Lost Treasure
Mail Buddy Master Merchant Master Recipe List
Master Thief Merlin's Rez Helper No Accidental Stealing
pChat Personae Non Gratae Pet Dismiss
Port to Friends House Potion Maker Purge Tracker
Quick Enchanter Raffle Gold Raffle Gold Tally
Raid Notifier Roomba SALTI
Scootworks HUD Various Shissu Guild tools Skyhards
Srendarr Tinydog's Crafting Calculator Trait Buddy
Unknown Tracker Untaunted Votan's Fish Fillet
Writ Worthy

Most of these are active on all characters. Sorry, I tried to organize the list into 3 columns. Hopefully the differing fonts help to make it stand out.

Did you make sure to update to the latest version on Minion? After the changes of the last update, you may have another addon that now overrides this one. Can you disable all others and test it? Posting your addons list here could help me point out the culprit.

I took this opportunity to also fix the login notification (did not show character name,) and clarified what the settings menu option does. Enjoy!

Agreed. I'd forgotten how irritating it was to see my friends' logging activities fill up my chat. I'm really keen for this to start working again.

Like the others said, this addon flatout doesn't work after the update. All friend notifications get printed to chat as if the addon isn't there instead of in the corner of the screen. I updated the API version and the bundled libraries and I still get the same result. The game doesn't think this addon is compatible for some reason. Perhaps, like someone suggested, reworking the code to use that other library might help.

Yes, I noticed the same issue, it has stopped working with the last patch. Like it isn't even there. Messages just go through, and I can't even turn off the notifications. I can't speculate on what caused it though. Maybe it does have something to do with libstub, maybe it doesn't.

That said, while it was working, it was a great little addon, and I can't quite live without it anymore.

I'm pretty sure it's because of it using libstub and yes i get chat messages instead of it moving the message. Several addons that used libstub were updated to use libchatmessage because supposedly libstub is deprecated (this is only what I have read I'm not a dev). Ones that did use libstub stopped functioning.

Thanks for the compliment!

Have you made sure the addon is enabled after the update? Can you describe what happens when a friend's online status changes? Do you get a chat text message instead of the notification?

I don't always have others to test with, so your feedback is appreciated.
