    apparently they fixed something to do with picking your chat font?

    i didnt know you could switch it. how do you do it?
     
  6. Right click on the Chat tab. There are more options if you right click on the big orange chat bubble at the bottom left of the chat box.

    The fonts in the SA "Enhanced" client are lifeless and boring. All names and overhead chat looks like a text editor barfed. The KR font was so much better...

    And we need text color options and for the color text to show up in the journal as colored.

    I wholeheartedly agree. We need the ability to change text colors period. All the overhead chat is the same color. I found a color picker to make 'custom color' using RGB sliders (why not use the dye tub gump?), but it didn't appear to work.

    We also still need the ability to save the journal... Whats the hold-up on this?

    I see why they split the client from the content of SA.. The client is still months away from being done. Sad.

    You know what also needs to be fixed? Riding a swamp dragon (and possibly other mounts). Riding a swamp dragon just looks bad. The rider is way off position wise. :/

    Agreed. Why couldn't the other have stayed as a font option?

    Mounts have been messed up for a while now. "Enhanced" has the same facing-the-wrong-direction-while-riding bug that KR had, and added to the rubberbanding it makes it hard to ride at times.

    While there's currently no way in game to save the journal, there is a way to save the chat log before it gets overwritten when you next log in.
