    Suggestion type: FGunZ ingame



    Suggestion description:
    So I do like the overall idea of the shading bar over the chatbox ingame, but I think next patch you guys should have it scaled down to like 10%, so that way really dark color code names aren't totally dulled out and players have to look around for a bright spot on their screen much more frequently than before.

    I spoke with Ommadawn about this issue, and he said that his remedy for it was to change the opacity of it which is an option in the settings. I understand it can be edited in the settings but I was unaware of that up to that point and with it being everyone's default that means that every player will have issues seeing dark color code names, so next patch please scale down the base transparency. Love the change overall though!









    I am not posting a cropped screenshot of the chat because if you can only read it by zooming in, what more proof do you need

    I always thought a colored box should engulf the space assigned to the chatbox, and not reliant on the map background. I think adding a border around text can help solve this issue. if a color is considered 'dark', it can have a white border.

    The biggest thing is that the default setting shouldn't make it so nobody can read the text of dark color codes such as ^6 or ^O

    Just noticed this, but I feel like the default value shouldn't be something as high as 80 either. I feel like the default value should be something like 20. With 20, the chat opacity would still discolor the text field, but it won't make reading dark colors a hard thing to do.
