Multiplayer Lufia - Social System

Postby NeoGades » Tue May 03, 2005 8:01 pm

This isn't final, but just during development I have setup a small chat window for players to speak to one another. Heres what it looks like.

I am leaning more towards the traditional blue bubbles way of speaking (where a bubble just appears over your head like in the real Lufia) But I haven't had time to program that yet with how busy I've been.

So I wanted to see what you guys thought about different ways of communicating and if I should program the blue bubble system before the first release.

Or, you could have both; one for conversations on the same map and another for the whole server.

That's a bit big, especially for such a small line.

You're right. I'll make the length of the dialog box based on the size of data text. Thanks very much for the feedback.

EDIT: (I left that much room just incase I decided to add character portriats in the chat box)

Maybe you could ask somebody to make portraits?

Portraits are harder than normal animations to make. However, they can be relatively simple to edit colors of existing ones.
Dekar rules!

I forsee a file size problem w/ that. Too many images to have to d/l / put on the server.

I could draw some portraits/avatars to chose from. Then they could all be a certain size.
