Guild Wars 2 - Scrolling Combat Text (GW2SCT)

This is an addon for arcdps by deltaconnected ( and adds a highly customizable floating and scrolling combat text beside the users character. Incoming damage is displayed on the left side, outgoing damage is displayed on the right side.


GW2SCT requires ArcDPS to work. You can install arcdps by following the instructions in this site:


Go to the the release page and download the newest release. Copy the file "d3d9_arcdps_sct.dll" into the "bin64/"" subfolder of your game directory.

If you want to add your own fonts copy them in the "addons/sct/fonts/" subfolder of your game directory. You can configure the output in the arcdps options panel (opened by default with Alt+Shift+T).

Known Bugs

  • The addon seems to not be loaded correctly or at all on some machines. If you have any information why this may be happening or how to resolve this, please reach out to me on Reddit
  • The default font loaded by this addon is also used as default font for arcdps. This means that the custom font size and type set up for arcdps will be ignored.
