Fixing Combat Log Spam

Friday, March 28, 2008

It's annoying, it can cause low fps, and it's spam. And annoying.

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. I'm sure you have all seen it, and here's an easy way to fix it (courtesy of deleted topic).

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.

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

Simply relog and it should work.
