    Speedchat+ has hit test so shouldn't be long before we get it on open. So far there have been great reports about it. I have seen it used on Club Penguin for a while now. My daughter has been allowed to chat with anyone that has it enabled on CP. It will be nice to actually talk to people that aren't your SFs. Now they just need to expand our friends lists!

    Young and I played around with it for a while tonight. It was interesting, to say the least!

    No more numbers. None. Can't spell them either. So if you say "let's kill that one", that one won't be seen because that's how you spell "1".

    No names that can't be found in their dictionary.

    No more typos :( Heck you can't even say typo. I had to call it "typing error" LOL

    I love how we at least KNOW now when people can't see what we say. It will show italicized. even to TFs. And it will show as red in the chat box before you send, so you can fix it.

    The worst part of all.. but maybe they'll fix it... You cannot run while typing. You can't turn or go backward.. no movement at all if you have a chat window open.

    I'm a bit confused (shocking isn't it? lol). But, does this give everyone around you the ability to see what you type? Or is it a seperate box? For example, if I'm in a building with one sf and 2 randoms... can the randoms see our chat? I'm sure they wouldn't appreciate being called an idiot every now and then.

    And... can we still have typos galore in our sf chat? Some people wouldn't be able to communicate at all if they can't misspell words!

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, Young saw all my typos and I saw hers. They were italicized and the other people saw her quack for that word. All we did was stand in the TTC playground talking to people. Not everyone will have this; you have to change your settings on the website, and that requires you knowing your parental password. So if the randoms have it enabled, yes they will see your chat. No more talking about randoms in front of them, lol.
     
  5. Trish, if you have talked to roli lately, he will tell you.

    If you can read german, give this a shot.



    Nun, ich kann bei mir die Option nicht einstellen, denn auf dem Test Server akzeptiert er aus irgendeinem Grund nicht mein Parent Passwort vom öffentlichen Konto. So eine Einstellung wie im folgenden Bild gezeigt jedenfalls sollte man bekommen. Doch da muss ich mich wohl mal an den Support wenden, weil er das Parent Passwort, was ich auf Open habe, auf meinem Test Account nicht akzeptiert.

    [​IMG]
    Am normalen Chat mit True Friends ändert sich jedenfalls nix, wie man an diesem Bild sieht. Die für den Speedchat+ nicht zugelassenen Wörter werden nun kursiv geschrieben, auch bei den bisherigen True Friends.

    [​IMG]
    Die Denkblasen gehen momentan nicht mehr auf dem eigenen Grundstück, wenn man einen Satz mit 1 oder 2 Punkten beginnt. Andere Toons sehe ich weiterhin nur mit ihren Tierlauten, und diese sind aber jetzt sehr kurz, bestehen also nur noch aus einem Wort.

    [​IMG]
    Die Denkblasen bleiben nicht mehr stehen so wie früher. Viele Wörter, die man im Spiel gut gebrauchen könnte, funktionieren nicht, z.B. CEO, CJ, jede Zahl und auch Zahlwörter gehen nicht. Oft muß man korrektes Englisch schreiben, damit es nicht rot erscheint und viele Abkürzungen gehen auch nicht. Aber das merkt man ja schon beim Tippen. Das muß auch alles nicht so bleiben. Hier ist ein Bild eines Toons, der Speedchat+ einschalten konnte, und alles lesen kann, was die anderen Toons schreiben, die auch die Option eingeschaltet haben:
    [​IMG]

    Und hier hab ich noch ein Bild gemacht, weil manche bei Toontask glaubten, dass die Wörter, die rot erscheinen, bei dem anderen nicht lesbar wären:
    [​IMG]

    Das Parent Password vom Test Server zu bekommen, war ganz einfach: Man muß nur "Forgot Password" anklicken, seinen Testaccount-Namen eingeben und bekommt es dann per Mail zugeschickt. So konnte ich Speedchat Plus aktivieren.

    [​IMG]
    Ich habe bisher aber noch keinen einzigen Toon gefunden :( - hier ein Screenshot von Toontask:
    [​IMG] Unsere Kommunikation in Deutsch wird zukünftig größtenteils kursiv rauskommen und rot im Eingabebereich erscheinen.

    I have no idea what that says, but i'll ask roli to make a english copy. He Posted http://www.toontask.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=114801"]This[/URL] on Toontask.

    He also made these posts in a topic about a Speedchat + topic. The posts he made are here, here, here and here and another here

    Probally the same thing.. i'll keep you updated.

    Since I would never ever make fun of randoms and try to scare them to death, I don't need to do this.

    But for the rest we can just end our chat in a number so they can't see?

    "Can you believe Trish has on that ugly skirt 1"(just example of how it would work)

    ;-)`

    Okay, I have to point out blatant falsehoods! (LOL) but only once... the toon name should clarify it nicely.. YOU never try to scare randoms??????

    That is way too funny... Back to my Christmas decorations.. I needed a good laugh :D

    Nope, I would see everything but my name and that number at the end. And SOME may see their name. Roger Dog saw his whole name.
     
  9. This could put a whole new spin on getting help for those randoms that dont know how to SF other toons. I can see where I would have loved this before I found Stratics.

    On the other hand. There goes all the interesting conversations one can have without ever tom, **** and random reading things about your life that isnt important to them.

    I am not sure if I would or would not like this.

    Isnt this the reason Disney gave true friends? If everyone can read everyone elses chat then what good is the TRUE FRIEND LIST?

    EXPAND the list if you want more interaction is what I think.

    Some things aren't meant for other toons to know.

    Actually the reason Disney gave us True Friends are for those REAL LIFE people we know and play with. Friends that go to the same school, and the like. What we do with the system isn't what Disney had in mind at all.

    At first I thought I hated not having the animal sounds for SpeedChat Plus. But because of what you said, I must say it's probably a good thing.

    As for our practical use at Stratics, it won't help me talk to people who aren't on my list effectively, because I won't be able to say their name. But perhaps it will still be an improvement to our system; only time will tell.
     
  11. I dont like this idea very much. I dont want people to listen to me and i dont want to listen to them. Now noobs have a whole new vocabulary to ask to be your friend. It could help with battles but could be annoying after awhile.

    I think it would be easier to turn down friends. You can come across more sympathetic when you flat out tell them no. LOL! I am going to love this speedchat +.

    I don't see how much nicer I could be than "Sorry, my friends list is full." They already say "No" to that. I have a feeling its going to get ugly instead of being nice.

    Well we always have the ignore feature now, too. Might get used more with the implementation of this. LOL

    See Friday night just testing standing around talking to randoms.. I came across this one kid, I friended him because it's Test and I have like 5 Test friends lol.. I knew he was a kid because he told me. Then he was all about "let's go to my house and have a glitch party". Just saying "I don't care to glitch in the game" was enough to get him to lay off. So it could work the other way around, too.

    I was thinking more along the lines of a further explanation. When I say Sorry my friends list is full I really don't think they believe me half the time. If I explain I've had this toon for a long time and right now its full they might be more understanding.

    I can also tell them I don't friend kids. That is a great thing to have. I have inadvertently friended kids and had to tell them once I found out that I didn't want them. While I have nothing against kids, I have a couple on my list, I find that kids in general, are annoying. LOL!

    I've used this type of chat for over a year on disneys pirate game and it doesnt seem to be a problem.

    Sounds good to me, one of the most frustrating things about TT to me is not being able to talk to other toons!
