Chat box

Post by creecrew2000 » Tue Jan 17, 2017 8:03 pm

I have a question about Garry's mod. I was wondering if it is possible to add more characters to the text chat box in game. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I hope i'm posting this in the right area. Thank you again.

I dont know about adding characters but I know several addons on scriptfodder (AtlasChat, etc) add emotes and such and I think you can add your own. For example typing :gaben: in chat (I believe, I havent used atlaschat in a while) puts a gaben face in face.

I mean like text characters, like from I think the 192 character limit to like a 300 character text limit

I don't know about that but i'll search around for you and see what I can find? What do you mean exactly though? Expand the chat message limit? Just get a custom chatbox and edit its configs.

I would believe you couldn't necessarily extend the limit.

Now I can be wrong, but I think the best way would be is disable the regular generic chatbox all together. And code your own chat box from scratch. 100% with it's own defined hooks too.
