Shoutbox / chat improvements

Postby the_fog » Tue Feb 16, 2016 11:50 am

Thanks to Alinho (again! I really need to buy you a beer sometime ...) we have some nice new features added to the chatbox:

- multilingual chat lobbies for english, japanese, portugese and spanish members. You can reach those by clicking on the flag symbol.
- private chats are now organized under the flag symbol aswell
- new status symbol indicating if a member is available, busy, away or invisible. You can change your status by clicking on the symbol left to your name

Have fun and let us know if there's something that needs to be improved or error corrected.

I like the new chat, the alternative mains with new languages. Maybe we can have more countries like german and french, I know there are some players from there too, although I forgot the total german player count. I can only name 3 right off the bat, and one is rarely active now..

Is it possible to request for an update for the private chatroom? I tried talking to an online friend and he didn't show up on my private chat even if he said he was online there and accepted my invitation. Also I think there's no notification that someone sent a message on the private rooms anymore, like before it flashes a red light as an indicator. Maybe we can have a sound to compensate for the hidden private rooms (since they are only on the dropdown and not shown below as a separate tab)? Just some suggestions for improvement. Thanks for the update by the way.

Chatrooms are not connected anymore, you can only stay in one. Having a bunch of chatrooms running at the same time was removed due to performance issues. If you want to have two chatrooms running at the same time, I'd suggest opening another browser tab with the chatrooms running in different tabs.

Okay, we tried and yes it did say that when I transferred to my private chat the person I was talking to verified that I disappeared from main chat. Alright, sounds like a decent alternative, thanks for the fast response.

I love it. Gotta say that after these years, it's quite refreshing to see improvements (also mentioning the auto-login).

Now it's easier to use my gifs wooooo Image

i think that we could improve the sb even more by adding more Smilies , since i feel the ones we have are very limited.

My idea was to add outbreak character faces such as Cindy , Kevin etc...

Or just put more expresions , idk
