Re: Only include player speech in communication window?

You do seem to be getting a bit exasperated, and I'm sorry if this value of ours is frustrating for you. I've literally been asking about this and other related things [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] for literally almost a year now. I have been waiting for a response to my requests for what I thought was c...

Re: Only include player speech in communication window?

And, upon reflection, I don't think my suggestion of tagging specific combat chat protocols (which actually would not be a nightmare) would take care of the problem. The spam example posted above showed the reactions many NPCs are programmed to do when attacked. In many npcs there is a little scrip...

Re: Only include player speech in communication window?

Could we maybe get the NPCs to chatter a LOT less then? No, that's quite possibly the worst suggestion you've had, and none of yours have been good. Not to mention the ridiculous amounts of hours it would take combing through every NPC's script by hand to delete all of their messages, it'd also red...

Re: Only include player speech in communication window?

As it's not obvious over telnet who's a player and who's not this information should not be presented over GMCP either. Are you trying to seriously say that damn near everything in the GMCP isn't above and beyond what a telnet player has? I can close my eyes, scroll up and down in the GMCP api, and...

Re: Only include player speech in communication window?

Look, you guys are insane if you think an acceptable fix is to put most of the work onto the player. The best solution in this case is the addition of information given through GMCP so that the webclient can accurately make the informed decisions that are being requested in this thread.

Re: Only include player speech in communication window?

An easy fix? giving text manipulating scripts priority over GMCP, cost of a few ms? no clue since I didnt develop it but it looks possibly easy to fix haha yeah but not having looked at the code I am guessing! What you're talking about doing is having a player-side list of either monster names or p...

Re: Only include player speech in communication window?

Ugh. Yeah, that isn't good. Perhaps filtering all npc speech is the best and simplest message. Cotillion would be needed for comment on feasibility. Mercade, too, actually, if this deals with different protocols used for speech between interactive and non interactive characters. There currently isn...

Re: Only include player speech in communication window?

It's hard to talk with your team when fighting in many grindzones. Orcs, haradrims, krougs and orcs just won't stop blabbing! Regarding the official client, I doubt anyone finds this chatter in the communication window very helpful, and believe most find it a hindrance. Please vote so we can get an...

Re: Suggestion - Notepad

Yeah, that's what I'm doing at the moment, but it's kind of a pain when it could just be a text box. ... Wait, what? You know how to save to userdata, but you don't know how to make your own textbox that reads/saves from it? You're using a webclient, so just make your own div that sits above everyt...

Re: Marking in colour one word

I think it's worthwhile to add some kind of exemption or else just a special trigger because it would allow the user to store a map of keywords and colors/background-colors that could be modified from the command line. That's already thoroughly doable. I have that setup right now. You're basically ...
