I like the bubble design, but I don’t like it when u zoom out that u just see three dots. (just make it disappear)
Finally, we can customize chat bubbles without having to script until our fingers die.
I agree I think that Roblox should have done one overall UI change instead of one bit at a time like they have. It just looks off. I hope they rework the chat GUI but at the same time i’m scared that they will make it worse and more cartoony like they did the chat. I personally like the new chat excluding its look. I agree with you though. Would be nice to see a new font maybe that’s easier to read?!
How does stuff like this get by?! I swear Roblox has never heard of play testing things efficiently before implementing them.
That is something you can do on your own though. If you use
UserInputService.TextBoxFocusReleased, you can detect if they are focused on the chatbox. Here is an example of this through a
local UIS = game:GetService("UserInputService")
if Box.Name=="ChatBar" then
-- Play typing animation
if Box.Name=="ChatBar" then
-- Stop typing animation
I love this change so far!
I suggest changing the fading out transition to fade upwards instead of just the entire bubble in the chat, but you do you.
I think this new feature is amazing. I could see This feature being use in ALOT of roleplay game.
Do you have a forked version of the old chat bubble system running? If so, you have to disable or delete the forked version.
Will it be possible to make VIP players having a specific bubble color (gold for example) and having the “normal players” use the white color?
I was wondering if they would also be revamping the bubble chat for NPC chat dialog, as its very buggy. But still, amazing work with the new bubble chat!
Some things i would personally add to the bubble chat and chat itself
- Different sizing of bubbles
- Different colors for each team in game
- When somebody is typing, three dots or so could be shown to know that the person is indeed typing, i’ve been thinking about the absence of this feature since 2013 so that could be really really cool. Thank you very much
if its not broken, dont fix it.
we dont need this bubblechat update.
Uhh… it was broken… so yes we did need this.
It was broken because the line-height was too small… Totally not one of the easiest things they could fix…
I love it, but noticed certain gears make the bubble chat go higher, don’t know if it’s intentional or not:
It wasn’t broken to the extent where it needed a whole revamp, it’s easy to fix it yourself in your own game, roblox is just slow on fixing things.
Hmm… is it just me, or is it not possible to disable classic chat through forking anymore? I don’t know of any other way but…? Has anyone else encountered this?
Found a bit of a bug:
It seems that the bubbles go through accessories in r15 rigs. Below is a screen recording of the issue:
Hopefully that wasn’t intended- it looks terrible. Hopefully someone will look into this.
cc @Chocopain, hopefully you can take note of this. I can file a bug report if necessary.
i mean the old bubble chat was actually pretty broken, text cut off and stuff
