    Post [Addon] Rift Raid Alert - spoken raid warnings

    Rift Raid Alert can be used to create spoken raid warnings for the MMORPG Rift. The current version support announcements for RoF, IGP, MoM, CoA, Hexathel(Queen Foci), Tartaric Depths, IRoTP and BoS. You can use Rift Raid Alert with Team Speak so the whole Raid can benefit from.

    Features:
    • search the chat messages and alert you when certain phrases/keywords appear in the chat channel
    • As an example, you are looking for a Raid for BoS. If both words (BoS and lfm) appear in the chat channel you'll be informed. The advantage is you can running Rift in the background watch a movie, surf the web etc. while waiting that someone is looking for players.
    • encounter timers and countdowns
    • tank swap mechanic
    • tracking buffs and debuffs
    • monitors waeponstones, flasks and food
    • pull countdown and alert you if the tank has aggro or who has fail pulled
    • make your own timers, countdowns and alerts without Lua knowledge

    Download GitHub: This version includes a executable so you don't need to install Python.

    I will not continue to update the curse version, for the latest version please use Github.

    I don't know whether to laugh or clap, maybe both?

    Default Not working

    I downloaded and followed the rather simple instructions, but I'm not getting the sound check.

    /log
    /rra start
    start rra.exe

    /s siri tell me a joke

    nada

    Maybe you still have to install a voice.
    I use Windows 7 and have Microsoft Anna as default voice.

    I am pretty sure I raided recently with someone using this addon.. We were in ROF and it was really cool and impressive.. We all loved it and some of the speech on fights was a bit strange, but it was funny and accurate as well. I might try this. I didn't know you needed to d/l a voice mod program too. Thanks for the info !

    A few technical details:
    I use the Microsoft Speech API (SAPI 5) . The Python program that I wrote scans the Rift Log.txt file according to predefined parameters and passes it to the SAPI 5 interface.
    You can use any voice that was created for the SAPI 4 or SAPI 5 interface.
    There are many free voices (often sound robotic) but also very natural sounding voices.

    My program is still in an early development phase. However, I could eliminate many bugs thanks to user feedback on GitHub.

    How I came to this project?

    I wanted to learn programming, but without a destination I would quickly lose interest. I play Rift from the beginning (look at my join date) and I knew if I program something it must have to do with Rift.
    I started to create a best in slot overview for mages but have realize this has more to do with collect data as with programming. So I searched on google for an easy to learn programming language and ended up with Python.

    The next step was a more or less meaningful project to think of.
    I wanted a script that read raid registrations from a EQDKP and created an in-game Macro with which you can invite players automatically. But a guild mate with real programming skills has solved it with a few lines of code and a self created EQDKP Plugin.

    After further reflection, I came across the idea with the spoken raid warnings.

    I started with zero Python experience and a little programming experience from school.
    A week later and after much research the prototype was ready. Unfortunately, I realized to interact with Rift I need to learn the lua programming language. Compared to python it was pretty hard for me to understand as lua and Rift works. With Python a problem solving is only a Google search away but not so with lua. Somehow I managed it yet and here is the finished project.

    I would like to say I can understand players consider such tools critical. It brings a lot of automation into play but not as the current addons like King Boss Mod, Triggers or KaruulAlert.
    Maybe it's a useful tool for PUG Raids where not everyone has the necessary knowledge or the mentioned addons.
    I have written the program primarily for myself to learn Python and had a lot of fun. I am even surprised that everything is working at all.


    Sorry for my bad grammar I blame google translate for it.

    And thanks for Rift teaching me the Python and LUA programming language.

    I was in a raid where a guy was using this, successfully, which is why I'm trying to get it to work. I love the idea (and the way it worked in that raid), and would really like to get it to work.

    I'm using Windows 8.

    So that would explain your deaths in MoM .

    I love the idea of this add-on, but may make raiding too "automated" in the future
