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).

If for some reason the addon is not loading for you, check that you have the newest version of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables installed. Get it here.


Translations can be found on this repository in the according language folder. If you have a translations for a new language or improvements for one, get in touch with me.

Known Bugs

  • When having problems accessing the GW2 render API no skill icons can be downloaded or it takes a very long time. Download and extract the images in file from here and into the "addons/sct/icons" subfolder of your game directory.
  • 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.
