I figured with F2P about to hit, what better time than to make a guide on how to deal with chat scroll?
What kind of ways do you handle chatscroll? How do you manage it? Have you found anything that works well for you? Share!
1) I have two windows on my screen - an OOC window for circles and WSRP, and an IC window for say, emote, and whisper. This weeds out the amount of reading I have to do in a scene or skimming to find relevant stuff.
2) With Killroy during busy scenes, I reduce the say range down, which helps reduce the scroll too
3) With Chatlinks, it alerts you when someone says your name! This is super useful for me. Most emotes will have a character's name or character's nickname in it.
4) I pull the chat window longer (just started this one) - This makes for less scrolling and seperates it a little neater between who posts each emote.
Hrm. The only comment I made on CL's curse page was just to report the problem, oh well. IIRC the formatting is fine for things in /say but get borked in /emote so I added /say's format preserving code to /emote.
