Wink Re: Re: Colors

Lylian, check out Friend Alert plugin....it lets a person choose the color for a number of alerts. Maybe you can use the same type of code/feature.

Put a color option next to each chat type ?

Thanks again

Is there anyway to match colors of each particular chat type and Chat Notif ?

For example, if my Kin chat is green, when Chat Notif shows me something from Kin, it would also be green.

Thank you

Re: doesn't launch, error in settings

Thank you for the bug report! I think it is an issue with the french and german clients. It should be fixed but I couldn't test it with an other client to be sure.

Quote:
ChatNotif is working fine on first use. After logout, when settings are saved, it stops working. On next launch, I get the errors

.../Esy_ChatNotif_Settings.plugindata:14: ']' expected near ','

...\Plugins\Esy\ChatNotif\Settings.lua:39: Unable to parse file!

Deleting Esy_ChatNotif_Settings.plugindata makes the addon work again, but I have to setup my options again. I'm using the German client, if that makes a difference.

I love this addon and would be glad to get it working. Thanks in advance!

Thank you for creating this addon. Being able to put up /emotes and /says is a very nice quality of life improvement. I appreciate it.

Some suggestions:

When /says are posted onscreen, the speaker's name is in a much smaller text and can be hard to make out. Please consider increasing the size.

Adding an audio cue for when text posts on screen would be useful for those times when there are other distractions on the screen, such as open inventory or quest windows. An example audible would be that faint "click" that happens when a quest objective advances.

Thank you again for your work.
