TOM - Tamriel Online Messenger - Reborn  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 6.2.2
by: P5ych3 [More]
TOM - Tamriel Online Messenger - Reborn

TOM was placed into the discontinued category shortly after update 34, and since I thoroughly enjoy it I wanted to change that. TOM is the best chat manager available right now so I made it a priority to bring it back to life. Sternentau assigned me all copywrite ownership to continue the project and future development. I am honored to carry the torch and contribute with this goal in mind. After looking at the code and getting familiar with the functions I got to work on restoring the addon in its entirety. Each and every feature of TOM has been restored to operable condition and built upon to make it even better than before!

While the addon was being fixed I took the initiative to add some quality of life changes. TOM has been reconstructed by adding convenient new features for players! After all was said and done I decided that I was very pleased, and felt compelled to release the final product here for everyone to enjoy! After about a week of coding and numerous cups of coffee later I am happy to present to you:

TOM - Reborn

A full list of fixes, changes, and additions to TOM will be documented in the changelog for review at any time. Screenshots are also provided should you want them.


TRANSLATIONS / LANGUAGE

INTRODUCTION

Never miss an important message again!

We all have discovered a weakness in Elder Scrolls Online.. the in-game chat management leaves much to be desired.
Nearly every one of us has missed a whisper because we were in combat or distracted by anything special.
Seconds later the chat has faded out or shifted up from other system messages, spam and text so we never see it again..

This now comes to an end!

TOM - Tamriel Online Messenger will keep your messages safe and keep you properly notified.

Whenever there is a whisper, a call from the guild or a party message that arrives TOM will keep track of it all.
TOM is always keeping an eye on all channels and you can customize your personal settings.
Depending on your settings, TOM will open automatically or you will be noticed by a flashing sign if anything occurs while you are away.
Let TOM handle the responsibility of not missing anything important!

For guild masters and active guild members there are many 'Guild Functions' implemented such as display status, jump to guild member, mail to guild member and more..

Within the catacombs of TOM you may store 'Scrolls' of your own text and post them to the chat - great for roleplay, trade and mail operations.

KEYBINDS / HELPFUL TIPS

You will likely open or close TOM often in future to review messages - so I would recommend you set a keybind for this action. Guild masters can bind another key for the 'Guild Functions' window if desired. Here are the functions that can be bound to controls.

Show/Hide Guild Functions

Show/Hide Magic Messages

----------------------------------------
TOM Reborn - v6.0.0 - 07/23/2022
----------------------------------------
Fixed all issues with the alerter bubble icon. Removed unnecessary controls (tomAlerterBubble2) from 'tom.lua' and 'tom.xml'. This extra control was never required and causes issues when moving the alerter icon around on screen.
Stopped the main interface from opening up if dragging the alerter icon with the right mouse button. Allows for easier placement of the icon without interruption.

Fixed the broken icon texture that was seperating from the main button control (tomAlerterBubble). This would cause the tooltip information to move away from the texture whenever the icon was moved around on the screen, detaching the tooltip and leaving it affixed to a random position (obviously not optimized).

Added a settings option to toggle the display of the alerter icon (tomAlerterBubble) when not viewing the main interface: SCENE_MANAGER:IsShowing("hud").
Fixed the alerter icon inappropriately showing inside of menus where it should not.

Added all TOM console commands to a new category (Console Commands) inside of the addon panel for documentation & reference (EN and DE tooltip translations included).

Capitalized the beginning of each option in the settings panel to increase the aesthetic (English).

Added a function to the main window. TOM will now automatically show the cursor when the main window opens to streamline the interface and make it easier to use.

Added a new feature to the main TOM window. Middle clicking on a conversation/chat group previously had no function. Now middle clicking on any group will allow the users to quickly delete it to manage their messages more conveniently.

Altered the '/tom' command. Called with no arguements '/tom' will now open the TOM interface directly. This makes better sense and gives direct access to the main functions.
Changed the TOM status check command to use a more defined arguement: '/tom status'

Added a new button to the TOM interface to open the addon settings panel. This allows users to change addon settings more conveniently (EN and DE tooltip translations included).
Clicking on the main window's bubble icon will now also open the settings panel for quick access (EN and DE tooltip translations included).

Removed all references to 'LAM3' and converted these variables to LAM2 (LibAddonMenu 3 does not exist). Not sure why this variable was there in the first place as it is entirely unnecessary..

Adjusted the vertical position of the catacombs button to align with the other icons (it was bothering my OCD).

Fixed buttons on the main interface (player online status indicator)

Fix the clipboard interface.
Fixed buttons on the main interface (last messages into clipboard)
Fixed buttons on the 'Clipboard' interface (close, clear)
Added buttons on the main interface (last messages into clipboard)

Fixed buttons on the 'Catacombs' interface (close, player scan, help/info, page right, page left, insert, delete, send to target, send to guild, send to chat)
Fixed buttons on the 'Catacombs - Scan' interface (close scanner, clear scanner)

Fixed buttons on the 'Undock Group' interface (discard undocked window, answer group)

Fixed buttons on the 'Magic Messages' interface (close and apply rules, new rule, delete rule)

Fixed buttons on the 'Guild Functions' interface (open unsent mail, roster status icons, next guild, clear guild news field, refresh, close)
Fixed buttons on the 'Guild Functions - Unsent Mail' interface (close)

Added locTxt[#] values for every new feature that adds new text to tooltips or menus.
Added translation variables for all changes (German).
Capitalized all English tooltips and settings options.

This is certainly possible. I think this is a good idea, and creating options for these features appears to be rather straightforward. I will do this for you and release it as soon as I can.

EDIT: Complete. Check out the latest version (download). I have included these changes along with some other small improvements. Thank you for your feedback. PM me if you have any other requests.

If you are having issues interacting with the main interface then first make sure you have easy access to your mouse cursor.

ESC > CONTROLS > Standard Keybinds > User Interface > Toggle In-Game Cursor.

It typically helps to have this bound to a key for quick access. You can also choose to enable the convenience option for this feature in the addon settings that will automatically enable the cursor for you, if desired. You need to be able use your cursor with TOM to best utilize all current functions.

ESC > SETTINGS > Addons > TOM - Reborn > Bottom of menu > Show cursor automatically with TOM

After this behavior is correct for your setup you can reply to any player whenever you want by clicking on player names in the main window. The addon will start a whisper message for you automatically. To reply to any other group or channel that you have messages from already you can right click on it on the left side of the main interface. I am currently working on some brand new features for the chat functions that you may enjoy as well. Keep your eyes open for that soon. If you have further inquiries please contact me directly.

EDIT: Brand new chat functions and interface improvements were added in the latest version. Make sure to check them out!

Yes. Always. I typically prefer PMs for specific requests but I can still answer you here as well to give others a feel for what is possible. I think that's important.

I have good news and bad news. So here it is fam. Some good stuff first. I'm going to share some gems with you. There are addons that can contribute to your experience and will likely make the default chat window more tolerable for you. Check out pChat later if you have not already. There is also Chat Tab Selector, Chat Window Manager, and ChatHotkeys. I use them all and they make my life easier for their various features.

Now for the slightly bad news. To my current knowledge there is no function that can completely replace the default chat. It is too deeply engrained into the game to be replaced by any singular addon. This is because ZOS has placed restrictions on the API that will not allow a user to automate the chat through addons alone. An addon cannot send a chat message by itself unattended, it must receive confirmation from the user first by pressing the 'Enter' key. This is why the message encryption feature of TOM (TOMish) works in this way as well by first posting the message to the default chat window. It cannot send messages without first resorting to the default window. This behavior is entirely due to unavoidable restrictions on the API that are built in as ZOS intended, otherwise I would certainly attempt what you are proposing.

Originally Posted by fsunate
Is there a way to emulate that bar?
More good news. This is actually a great question because it sheds light on the only potential alternative here. I could code a new button for the main interface of TOM that could toggle the display from the TOMish bar to a new bar for Common chat (similar to how the Catacombs messages can be directed in the current version), along with a selector for which channel to send the entered messages. The messages entered into this new bar would of course have to adhere to the same unavoidable API restrictions as all other addons (the player will still have to press 'Enter' in the default chat window in order to confirm their intent). This solution would serve to further simplify the process of sending messages, and this is likely the closest potential match to your request. I can mark it down for a future release. I will give it a shot when I find the time. I'm not adverse to the challenge.

EDIT: All done. Included in the latest version.

Originally Posted by fsunate

Certainly, I am currently attempting to add such a feature. It is a work in progress as it was requested from another user. I intend on releasing this when the feature is completed to satisfaction.

Originally Posted by fsunate

This is certainly possible and something that I may consider attempting in a future version, however I would like to point out to you that there are other addons out there that do this very well and seamlessly already. For this reason it is not necessary for me to attempt this feature immediately. I can link a few of these helpful addons here for you as well. They each come with keybinds etc. for convenience and they perform very thoroughly to keep a ledger of your loot in-game. Check this stuff out when you get a chance - Loot Log, Farming Party, Lootdrop Reborn. I will of course mark this suggestion down as well and look at it when time allows. Thank you for your feedback and understanding.

Hello and thank you for your work to continue this addon!

Would it be possible to add a couple features? I really like TOM and I try not to use the ESO chat window at all except for the send text bar. Is there a way to emulate that bar? Or make the ESO chat window always hidden except for the chat bar? Maybe there's a way to wrap the main chat window as TOM? TOMish really doesn't help me in this way because I don't know anyone else that uses TOM. Also, would it be possible to have the option to show only @ account names or character names? Also, any way to have a loot reported window with item links?

Thank you,

If you include the txt file this solves most of the possible errors but the libs were designed to be installed once properly to live/AddOns and not to ship with each addon again and again and again... (changed since Summerset, so years ago already!)

Just let the users install them properly to live/AddOns ONLY, please.
Less possible errors, less needed folders to search for possible loaded files, less file size, less loading times, less work for all (Especially LibAddonMenu which most likely is already installed as one of the most used libs out there).

You include an old version r32, r34 is the current e.g.
Absolutely Baertram. That makes a lot of sense, thanks for pointing it out to me and I will get that sorted out. I never thought to touch the library file at all to be honest, that was packaged with the version I got my hands on when I started. Sorry for the oversight there! I have gone ahead and cut the LibAddonMenu library from the new v6.0.3 upload to correct for this and all seems to be functioning as expected. The library is also listed in the description under the required files category for anyone who may need it.

You should not include the libraries with the addons anymore.
Having libries shipped with the addons often resulted into errors due to old included files etc.
If you include the txt file this solves most of the possible errors but the libs were designed to be installed once properly to live/AddOns and not to ship with each addon again and again and again... (changed since Summerset, so years ago already!)

Just let the users install them properly to live/AddOns ONLY, please.
Less possible errors, less needed folders to search for possible loaded files, less file size, less loading times, less work for all (Especially LibAddonMenu which most likely is already installed as one of the most used libs out there).

You include an old version r32, r34 is the current e.g.

Not an issue. I will add a settings option to make the cursor showing automatically optional for your convenience (addon settings). This will remedy the issue and make this behavior occur only at your discretion. Keep your eyes open for an update. That won't take me very long. Cheers!

EDIT: Feature complete (15 minutes later). I will upload this later tonight when I get a moment.





EDIT 2: Uploaded. Good to go. Thank you for your feedback!
