Move DM chat into main text box

Unread post by MithralMelody » Sat Aug 03, 2019 11:24 am

In a similar vein to this post, could DM messages, which are currently in Server Messages, be moved to a different format - namely Normal Chat? Personally, I keep Server Messages in my secondary window so the log in / log off spam doesn't clutter my main text box. But doing that means that when a DM says anything, it shows up in my secondary window (where combat spam, etc. also goes...) and sometimes I miss things.

Maybe DM chat could be made like Party Chat in that it shows in both Normal Chat and Server Messages depending on how far the DM is from someone?

DM Chat? Shouts, you mean?

No, not Shouts.

I grabbed a screen from a video of the recent devil event to demonstrate; apologies for fuzzy quality.

See how Soulcatcher's words are on my secondary box and not in my primary box? It's definitely listed as Server Message, because I tested it. The DM chat appeared in my primary chat box when I turned Server Messages there.

Ah, you can actually move them to the chat window, just press the right button over that window and when a dialogue window pops up mark "DM messages" in it.
