Very good idea, since not everyone pays attention to chat window.

Also, if you're doing this, how about you have a team logo over the person's head? Like the logos in Day of Defeat (half-Life mod). The police can have a badge, the sailers a ship, the racers a sports car, etc.

im assuming you mean just a small chat bubble, not containing your message? that would be a great idea, i vote yes. on the other hand, maybe people will all team up on the guy with the chat bubble. i say go for it, if it is easily implimented and not going to derail current progress too much.

Havent you all ever played Diablo 2, you can type and messeges and it appears over your head so no one except the people that are around you can read it. It is just a little fancier than team chat.

If it is added to 0.3, I hope it is something that can be toggled.

I just want the chat window the be a little more to the left and shortend. If the text was made a bit smaller this would work.

it´s a really good idea, but maybe it will be laggy :/

i guess this is sort of related, but the chat window font makes the letters look like they are split in half [|] vertical like so, and the left side droops down. it is a strain on my eyes. i know it isnt the same for everyone, because my friends pc had a normal (what i assume to be intended) font. can i change this? resolution has no effect on it.

try updating directX / your video card drivers.. this osunds like its being rendered incorreclty, as it uses a standard font for everything

the chat box is sometimes really hard to see, but thats just being picky. i just move out of the sun or the other brighter colors.

maybe, being able to change the transparency would be a cool option.

i really dont see the point of this at all, an indicator to show someone is in the menu/alt tabbed yes, a speech bubble for typing? no. Most people can still shoot and fly/drive fine (gamepad users) And what is to stop somone pressing T to lull u into a false sense of security then hitting enter and throwing a nade at you head? If you want to carry out a long drawn out conversation then find some cover and keep an eye on the radar.

I don't think it would really help anything. The radar shows you what classes are where, F10 shows you who's where. The chat is simply a global communication tool. Adding a chat bubble would only add to the stuff we have onscreen already and could be even more distracting then the chat box would ever be.

If you're talking to your team, they should be right nearby anyway, or at the very least, you can still talk with someone at the Airport while you're dallying about Northpoint Mall. Putting in a chat bubble would ruin any communication you could have with distant team members

If I can't read the chat, I quickly use my rear-look and read what's there. That usually does the trick

text over players would work, but i think the chat console does the job nicely imo

simple, lock out controlls while typing, and make the player invinciblke while typing, so that means no abusing typing invincibility, AND stopping typekilling assholes ruining a game

heck no ... in that case you were about to kill someone ... and they started typing until you got away ...

well, maybe you could make it so that you cant chat for about 15 seconds after taking damage? that would stop you being able to just press T to avoid death, of course, the invincible no movement wouldnt work in cars,cause then you could just plonk a bus in front of your base and have a guy type, making it impossible to get in

for those that don't want it, there should definitely be an option to turn it off! Just don't hard code the damn thing!
