Extend the Nearby Chat bar

UPDATED FIX for viewer 2.0.0 (202711)

  • In skins/default/xui/en/panel_bottomtray.xml

Change the max_width (pixels) from 320 to 768. Change the min_width (pixels) from 216 to 512

        <layout_panel
 	mouse_opaque="false"
         auto_resize="false"
         follows="left|right"
         height="28"
         layout="topleft"
         left="0"
         min_height="23"
         width="310"
         top="4"
         max_width="320"
         min_width="216"
         name="chat_bar"
         user_resize="false"
         filename="panel_nearby_chat_bar.xml" />

You will have to edit this file with administrator privs under MacOS X.

Based on the original fix by Psi Merlin

Extend the width of Chat Toasts

  • In skins/default/xui/en/panel_chat_item.xml

Change the first "width" statement (in pixels) from "315" to a wider value, such as that of your extended chat bar (see above).

   <panel
     name="instant_message"
     width="315"
     height="180"
  follows="all">

Make UI components semi-transparent

Option 1
  • Navigate to \skins\default\textures\windows
  • Make a backup copy of Window_Background.png
  • Copy Toast_Background.png to Window_Background.png

This will change:

  • About Land
  • Conversations
  • Debug Settings
  • Environment Editor
  • Find border
  • Map
  • My Land
  • Nearby Chat
  • Preferences
  • Region/Estate
  • Script editor border
  • Snapshot Preview
  • Statistics

Add more to this list if you discover them.

Note: You may have to tear off, click, or mess with Nearby Chat once for the change to take effect.

-- Jonathan Yap 01:46, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

Option 2

This will change most of the popups/windows/widgets/whatever backgrounds (not the sidebar) to semi-transparent.

  • Navigate to \skins\default\textures\windows
  • Make a backup copy of Flyout.png, Toast_Over.png, Window_Background.png, Window_Foreground.png, Window_NoTitle_Background.png, Window_NoTitle_Foreground.png
  • Download the following files:

Flyout.png Toast Over.png Window Background.png Window Foreground.png Window NoTitle Background.png Window NoTitle Foreground.png

  • Copy the downloaded files into \skins\default\textures\windows overwriting the existing files

To make the IM pop-up background transparent:

  • Make a backup copy of skins/default/xui/en/panel_instant_message.xml
  • Open skins/default/xui/en/panel_instant_message.xml in a text editor
  • In the third line of the file change the value of "background_visible" to false
  • Example:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes" ?>
<panel
 background_visible="false"
 height="152"
 label="im_panel"
...

To make the Sidebar tabs semi-transparent:

  • Navigate to \skins\default\textures\taskpanel
  • Make a backup copy of TaskPanel_Tab_Off.png, TaskPanel_Tab_Over.png and TaskPanel_Tab_Selected.png
  • Download the following files:

TaskPanel Tab Off.png TaskPanel Tab Over.png TaskPanel Tab Selected.png

  • Copy the downloaded files into \skins\default\textures\taskpanel overwriting the existing files

Note: You may have to tear off, click, mess with Nearby Chat or relog for the change to take effect.

Debug Settings

Go to the Advanced menu and click on Show Debug Settings.

Things you might want to change:

  • ChannelBottomPanelMargin -- set to 30 to have your popup chats start a little lower
  • mediaControlFadeTime -- Amount of time before the media control window fades out. Increase from 1.5 seconds to 10 or so.
  • NearbyToastLifeTime -- How long popup chats are on the screen
  • PluginInstancesTotal -- set to 0 if you never want media on a prim to play, even if you click on a MoaP, or increase it if you want to see more than the default of 8. (Note that MoaP is not the only place where SLPlugin is used. It will also affect the "Home" panel of the sidebar, the Help Browser and the search. Setting this to 0 will not allow you to use the search anymore!)
  • ToastGap -- set to 0 to close up the gap between popup chats
  • ShowHoverTips -- set to FALSE to turn off in-world hover tips over objects. Alternatively, restore the menu item and the ctrl-shift-T shortcut by editing menu_viewer.xml and removing the two sets of comment markers near the word "hover".
