Serious Chat Window Problems
I can't get these stupid chat windows to do what I want. All I want to do is change the name of the default window to "Main" and then make a new window called "Chat" and put all of the "human-generated" channels in there, and leave the rest in main with combat as the alternate tab in main's window. So on the UI I'll have two separate chat windows, one with a single "chat" tab that'll be the default place to talk into, and one with two tabs, Main and Combat. Pretty simple right?
Vanguard simply refuses to save it. If you make the changes, they have a "fair" chance of working, though your new window's tab name will disappear (maybe a feature of when there's only one tab in a window), but otherwise fine. Then you log out. And exit VG. And log back in. TADA you have "chat" and "combat" back in your original window, the second window is ALSO named "chat" but unfortunately you have ZERO channels appearing. Oh, and remember the chat channels you took away from the "Main" window (since that was the old chat) before? They're nowhere at all.
I even went into VGSettings.xml and tried to hack it to exactly what I want. Let's just say that weirdness resulted, and it STILL didn't work. One theory I had is that it MIGHT have something to do with the 'chatRecreateOverride="1"' field, but considering it was present for both windows, and I didn't screw with it, I highly doubt that's it.
I've deleted my settings file, worked completely cleanly, closed EVERY "chat settings" window before modifying them, and even made sure I NEVER doubled-up on names of tabs between logging in/out, and it STILL will not behave.
This is game-breaking for me. If I can't have my chat windows SOMEWHAT sane, I'm not sticking around. Your chat bars is where you get a LOT of your relavent information, and if I'm forced to have all of my chat in a window that gets spammed by other info that I WANT to see, just not THERE, then it's just moronic to lose players over such simple things.
Other MMOs have done this right on the first try. You guys may not have a perfect interface, but at least make it WORK! Right now it is VERY broken.
