Hello i was curious to see if anyone knows how to modify the chat window? I have seen a lot of youtube videos that have people with general chat and a battlechat on top of the general chat which are both separated. This would be awesome if Anyone can please show me how its done.

one example of chat window here:

Just go to Config > Chat Log

You have a 1 & 2 there, 1 being the bottom window. And they each can have a 2nd tab as well. You click on those and then check the "Enable Tab" box. Then just customize them the way you want. For customizing, the quickest thing to do would be to click "hide all" and add the few things you want to be shown, or "show all" and take off the stuff you don't want shown. Like for a chat only window, "hide all", then turn on the chat messages.

I have mine setup for chat only on the bottom window, and all the other stuff I want on top.

Dude please tell me you at least tried to look in game how to do this? You literally could've figured it out in less than
five minutes.

People with low post counts should just keep their opinions to themselves!

So should all people on the net in general... but I consistantly fail to do so, so I guess I can't expect anyone else to ^.~

(honestly, it's more of a history thing... Most people form a pattern and you can tell if it's just an off hand snide remark and choose to let it pass...)

This is... I don't even...

I've been actually complaining because this wasn't an option available, but I guess I should have been complaining about how stupid I am. Amazing!

thanks for posting this, I never took the time to try to figure it out. Not everyone makes the time to explore every functionality of the game, so thank you for saving me time, even if you did get harassed.

How do you not take ur time to look through the different functions of a game? You couldn't figure out how to change menu options go into configuration options.

thank you very much for the help i appreciate it. I knew it had to be in the configuration but I couldn't figure it out, thus the reason i came here for help. Why did someone had to be a *** hat about it?

ill ignore the troll and like to thank you guys for the help.

please close the thread I am happy someone else found use for it also.

King,

If it makes you feel any better it took me a while to figure it out and I STILL don't have it 100% how I want it. But supposedly the next update has more tweaks for it.

I do hope you're right and they add some more tweaks to the UI. Just when I think I have it the way I like it, I'll see someone's screen shot or YouTube Video and think "oh I like that I'll have to try and arrange my UI that way!" OCD... maybe.

At the moment I have the 2 stacked chat windows with one tab each on the left; the top is used for Say, Tell, Shout / Party Chat / Link Shell Chat / Emotes and the bottom window displays everything else. It seems to work ok for me as I only have one active Link Shell.
I just wish there was a way to scroll through the chat log with a controller ><

And you have a 100% rate of posts that don't contribute anything. Some people just lack basic skills, I suppose.

At least when I checked on my phone earlier his/her posts were sub-D'd and a few other posts were excellent... most of those are good or decent now and his/hers are back to default... I smell a sock at the worst and a troll hero at best.
