That won't help him though since he's not looking for a way to remove them but a way to move them away from the middle screen
But there's been so much crap so to say with these error texts. A little time ago I was looking for a way to completely remove the error texts and the sound that followed but found out that that's not possible atm. Best thing is ErrorMonster which can remove the red text in its entirety but there's no mod or anything out that can remove the clonking noises that follows a spamming of a button.
install it, then set a Keybinging. When the Red text appears you then press the keybinding. It should put a blue border around the text, u can then drag it to where u want it, then just press your keybinging again and it will save the location.
Simple way to get the error text is to select a player and try to heal or attack them and it should bring upo the out of range error.
Error Monster has options to output the messages in other frames, like BigWigs, SCT, Parrot etc, effectively allowing to move them where you please. Personally, I have them in my SCT message frame.
Thanks alot, I tried this and it works great! I am routing the messages through parrot, but I had to manually add several more messages to the errormonster filter, like "fizzled", "This target is out of range", "You are dead", "You cannot do this while stunned" and more (not sure about the correct wording of the given examples). to add messages to the errormonster filter, type /errormonster add XXX, where XXX is the errormessage of course.
Download DiscordFrameModifier.zip and DiscordLibrary.zip, install them like normal addons.
When in game type in /dfm to open the options. Scroll down the menu on the left side of the window to find "Error Frames" header then look for "UIErrorsFrame" underneath.
Now that you have it selected look towards the right side of the DFM Options window, look for Frame Location and check off Use. You can now arrows under the Frame Location header to 'nudge' the frame in the clicked direction, pressing the button in the middle puts the frame to the middle of the screen. If you want it to go quicker and know what your doing, you can just type in x and y co-ordinates for the frame underneath the arrows, remember to press enter so the numbers you entered are actually used.
Optionally, you can also change the height of the frame (allowing it to show more than just three messages), look at the top right pane of the DFM Options window, and look for Height, click off use to the right side of Height, then move the slider till the desired number of messages appear.
Theres all sorts of options in here I haven't even touched upon, but most you won't need just for moving the UIErrorsFrame.
Edit: For the second poster, using DFM its very simple to hide the frame completely, just check off "Force Hide" after selecting the UIErrorsFrame.
Sorry, recycled screenshot
The one you want is outlined in light blue.
