Post by The_Cowboy »

Howdy!

Allow me to present ChatDiamond, a native mod for your chatting needs!!

The mod is under heavy development and presently at alpha stage, meaning huge scope for improvement over long period of time.

The salient features are like so

1. Chat display with emojis and emotes (animated emojis).
2. Messages can be copied from the history along with server ips and urls.
3. Hyperlinks are identifiably blue colored and underlined text.
4. Console window with useful filters.

Meta features
1. Tutorial on native modding (wip).
2. Tutorial on clientside UT messaging (wip).

Finally, the release page
https://github.com/ravimohan1991/ChatDi ... .1.0-alpha

Happy Hanukkah!
And five cheers for new year!!

Ok I have had a brainstorming session for caching the chat text. Instead of storing the message and metadata in ini file, which limits the history of message due to limit in the size of datastructure, using native routines, I am dumping the data into text file with no need of erasing the past messages and metadata, ever. A text file of 20 MBs of size may store a year's chat messages (if 50 kb is utilized each day).

This is beginning to feel familiar, for a Discord user, where one can scroll right to the start with no history being erased due to space constraints.

Perhaps. I am already using json format for chat metadata, natively, and dumping to a text file is more simple for me, because of the structure of chat metadata. In json format the string looks like

Code: Select all

{"ChatMessage":"Dirt bag!","FaceName":"FCommandoSkins.goth4Malise","LocalTime":"Sunday 21 May 2023 05:23","PlayerName":"Leftist_Tyranny","SkinName":"FCommandoSkins.goth1T_0","Team":"Red"}
{"ChatMessage":"nice","FaceName":"Dummy","LocalTime":"Sunday 21 May 2023 05:26","PlayerName":"somasup","SkinName":"None","Team":"Spectator"}
where the text needs be stored line by line for each chat message.
