hi, pretty cool

little idea, in key bindings you can add shortcut to show better chat window, but the shortcut doesnt close it

I know ESC does it , but it would be better if the shortcut did

and when I start new game, the mod creates new three level called "player" on its own, have to delete every time, bit annyoing

@ikit kappa its a feature to easily address a player.
When you press keybind it doesn't close window because it was meanted so

Currently working on refactoring code and shadow mode: after some time window goes into shadow mode like chat does. Also options window coming.

Can you make the chat unclickable unless Enter was hit?

That is a nice feature 🙂 - chat is unclickable unless some message is visible (or you hit enter to chat yourself).

How do you get this to work? I have the mod installed and active. But nothing new is on my screen?

@scout_more_often bind a key to call a window in F1

Any chance of a video showing how to best use this?

@scout_more_often usually i use it for warning teammates about exps, snipes, nukes and etc. For requesting energy or mass, ofc there are some special cases.

Version 10 coming:

  • Rework of shadow mode due to some logical issues with it: you will be able to switch between modes, shadow mode is same as before but whole window is unclickable and calling window with keybind for it no longer returns to default, only changes focus on it.
  • Removing redundant functionality of calling phrases (second checkbox)
