I don't know if this is possible (its a fake textbox hiding behind engines usual console input)

comment:2 by Bluestone, 6 years ago

Probably the way to fix this is entirely disable ingame console and lua-ify a textbox to type into but I think chili has issues with this atm

comment:3 by Bluestone, 6 years ago

I can't see a way to disable the engine "Say: " dialogue

We would also lose some autocompletion features of the console.

comment:5 by Funkencool, 6 years ago

I actually did this once, but there were more cons then I felt like dealing with at the time. It's doable if the widget returns false in widget:keypress() ( or true, can't remember how that works).

How about by default users will use the text box, but if needed Spring's can be enabled, for debugging purposes etc..

As far as I know chili's textbox can do anything required by a user, which is basically just chatting. With this I'd also like add a dropdown to select who you wish to see your messages, maybe even that debug option..

This isn't possible afaik; if you send a chat message then it is recieved by all clients (of course it be not displayed on the screen by default, but it is still there and put into infolog). There is already "ignore" functionality implemented in the playerlist and integrated to the console.

Well, that's all I was really talking about. Selection between those 3, with allyteam being default. Are PMs possible?

Otherwise it would be entirely possible with basic lobby integration (at some point).

Yes: "/w <playername> pm" will send a 'whisper'. But it's not truly a whisper since it passes through the host on its way.
