Chat Window Redesign

Postby Kard » July 16th, 2012, 9:32 pm

I've had a lot of players ask me if there's any way to move the chat window vertically, and have the server controls above it. Thus you'd be able to see a lot more of the text while playing a game, since most people rarely type more than 20-40 characters, which would fit much better in a vertical window for some modules.

Is it possible for Vassal to program this in as a selectable option in the Preferences section?

And lastly, would it be possible to allow players to change the background colour of the chat window? I much prefer a dull grey background when i'm readying to a white. Personal preference, I know... :)

Thank you kindly for taking the time to check these requests.

I'd like to second this.

The ability to have a vertical chat window, and some buttons controlling colours of various texts, would be a relatively easy and very helpful improvement.

And the ability to set different bold keywords and italic keywords (or both) in a line of reported text! :)
