What messages to display

Post by Nise » Fri Jan 05, 2007 10:23 pm

Hello!

Is it possible to hide all the messages about players dropping or picking up flags and keep only messages about tanks being destroyed? I really don't need the info about flags, but when I want to see who/how someone was killed, ofte the message has already been scrolled away.

I haven't used them in some time, but check out the "tabs" on top of the chat window.

it's been so long I even forgot how to change or cycle thru the tabs.

But I remember those tabs help control what shows up in the chat window.

hope this steers you to a workable solution.

To change tabs use shift+Fx, where 'x' is the number of the tab.

Thanks for the replies!

I tried Shift+Fx: F2 was probably chat, seemed nothing useful (as no one was chatting perhaps?); F3 was server messages; F1 and F4 was the ongoing actions messages, but I think F1 just added players signing on/off and pausing to what F4 already had – dropping/picking up flags and killings.

What I would like is to keep only the killings; the flag messages are too many and not really useful – they just makes it hard to see the killing messages for me.

Is there really no way to configure these messages more?

F1 shows everything, F2 shows only chat, F3 shows only server messages, and F4 shows everything except chat and server messages.

I'm also curious about this.

In the meantime, I've set my radar and message background opacities all the down (up?) to make them completely transparent. This has helped me as most flag messages are grey.

No, that functionality is not currently coded into the client.

If you would like to request something like this, I would suggest starting a thread in the "Enhancements" section :wink:
