Chat Improvements

Version: 1.2
by: Seril [More]

ChatImprovements is a mod to change some things I didn't like about the default blizzard chatwindow. It adds features like:

  • Make chat channels sticky.
  • Make all chat frames have a longer scrollback.
  • Enable/disable fading out of old chat messages.
  • Allows you to scroll the chatframe with your mousewheel.
  • Automatically enable chat/combat logging every time you login.
  • Show timestamps next to messages.
  • Hide channel names (ie. for making fraps movies where you don't want random people to know your guild's channels).
  • Copy text from the chat window into the chat window edit box (you can then ctrl+A ctrl+C to copy it out of the game, or just use it to relay messages).
Updates:
V1.2:
  • Options now look more like blizzard's.
  • Added option to remove chat frame buttons.

V1.1:
  • Added ability to move/re-anchor the chat frame edit box
  • Options are now more sorted

V1.0:
  • Updated for WoW 2.4.3
  • New config panel is now used to configure AddOn
  • Removed justify option as it was buggy
  • Removed highlight option as it was buggy
  • Removed slash commands since they were not really needed
  • Changed name from SeriChat to Chat Improvements
  • No longer puts time stamps in the combat log, the combat log has it's own option for this
  • Timestamp style now reflects the combat log timestamp style (TIME>)
  • Copy text no longer stores a copy of every message in memory
  • Remove chat texture codes when copying chat

Please leave a comment if you find any bugs.

moving the chat edit box, would you want it just free movable, or re-anchored to the top of the chat frame?
Either way, I mainly want it on the top of the frame, but If it was free-moving, that would be cool too!

Edit: Me too Malice, and it seems like every time I try to use something else, I end up with either two sets of timestamps, or timestamps that are hard to understand.

Edit two: I'll test it out today!!

If it was free moving, I'd definitely be interested in this. One of the main reasons I use Prat still is because I can move the edit box where I want.

What format are the timestamps in and are you interested in moving/giving an option to move the chat input frame?
