Please come up with a simplified online chat feature

T = talk to all players
Y = team talk

Im wondering who actually uses the presets in the current chat window and if so how many times have you messed them up by starting a a text line with a number.

Let them know what you think of it.

I use the presets a lot for non-voice-comms flights.

Presets like ....

1. Climbing
2. Diving
3. Engaging etc etc

I only typed a number in once, learned from my mistake and never did it again. I like the way FB chat remembers if you last texted ALL players or just MY ARMY /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

No Problems here then /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Well...

I have my pre-sets set up for starting races ...
... something like ...


1 -- Go - Go - Go --
2 ----- Set -----
3 ---- Ready ----

... though I now think IL2/FB scripts are a better approach.

And yep - I've really mucked those up from time to time.

I would prefer the "standard" system that Leadsplitter suggested. Its just too many steps to type a standard message. The "T" & "Y" option would speed this process up significantly.

theres no need for that bulky screen blocking window, and for those who like it have ` do what it does now but for those of us who dont like it at all t type your message enter message sent no box just the text line with a clr backing

Hmm good suggestion. Why not have more shortkeys for chat?? I'd make it like this:

Chatbutton, let's say it's Enter.
Then type text/numbers, or SHIFT + number for predefined messages (or even SHIFT, CTRL, ALT - that makes 30 predefined messages)
Then again Enter for Chat to all, or SHIFT + Enter for chat to my army. Furthermore CTRL + Enter could bring up a dialogue like we have it right now to send "private" chat messages.

This would make chat easier (enter, type, enter/shift+enter) and at the same time we would have the possibilities it has now, by using shortcuts.
