Title: 1.Chat lenght displayed and 2. log only on black (no colors)
Post by: david4u on March 05, 2010, 09:45:04 PM
Hi
I participate every day in a trading chat hosted by mibbit .
I was using Pidgin till I found IceChat.
I like it very much . The colors , font size , sound options , etc. (Great Job !!!)
There are 2 issues that I hope there are solutions.
The only 2 features I like in Pidgin are :
1.The lenght of the chat that I can see is unlimited .
I will see ALL the lenght as far as I am connected.
On mibbit I think I can see only the last 30 minutes or a certain number of lines.
On Icechat there is a limited lenght of the chat that I can see...
may be it's the last X hours (last 2-3 ?) or a certain number of lines (?).
How can I make the chat lenght unlimited ?
2. On Pidgin , when I look at the log , witch is very important , as I can not be glued to the Chat Room for 12 hours ,
I see the log as in the original chat , and I mean I can see the actual colors how people wrote on the chat .
If the moderator writes on red , It's easy to my eye to go directly to his posts.
On IceChat all the log is on black .
Can this be changed ?
Looking forward to hear from you .

1. You are limited to about 1000 lines, and no it can not be changed.
2. All the logs are stored with the colors stripped.  It makes them a lot easier to read.

One small note though, IceChat 2009 can have an option to store log files in full color. What file format does Pidgin store its logs in?  HTML?

Yes Sir, Pidgin log in color is in HTML format .
1. When the IceChat 2009 will be available as Beta to test it ?
2. Any chance you will consider removing (if possible) the 1000 lines limitation from the chat window ?
Tks

1. There is no set date when it will be out.  It is 1 person developing it, and I am on a tight schedule as it is.

2. Increasing the limit slows down the client. I may make it a configurable option, if need be.
