    @Green-Promise I think adding some canned messages is a good idea. May try to find a way to make these customizable. Some buttons on the screen and maybe one or two that can be fired off with a hotkey mapped to your wheel. I'd personally like to have some speech recognition so it could detect a few key phrases like "sorry", "thanks", "good race", etc. I have no idea if that's even possible with python in AC, but I'll do some investigating.

    Thanks for this app. Is it possible to scale the chat window and/or the font? It's taking too much screen size for my liking. I'd like to have it a little bit smaller.
    Thanks in advance.

    Add some INI options for changing the Width/Height and also Scaling the whole app (useful for DSR users) is on my ToDo list. :)

    Very good idea, PLP messages for exemple can be very annoying sometimes. But i keep my modified version of Mini Chat, because like Frank said, it's huge on a 27' screen.

    But if you add options to change the size of the windows and font, then i can forget Mini Chat without regret.

    Nice to hear that its working. :) Take your time, Ive been waiting for an app like this for a couple of years so I have no issues waiting a little bit longer. :) Thanks

    Answer to your post in the review section.
    I know about that app but with it I need to sacrifice a couple of buttons on my wheel. But thanks anyway. :)

    Yes, thank you very much!

    Found a small issue, if you set a custom opacity for the background, once you clic on it, it reset to the default value until you launch a new session.

    @Mumaransa Please note the V1.2 should contain a fix for the background opacity bug you reported.

    Cheers,

    Wow, that was fast, thank you!

    Is there a way to modify the color of the text input area? Against a dark background like in cockpit view, the grey really stands out even with the lowest opacity (0.1). I would like to keep the red color when typing but to have the same transparent black like the rest of the window on normal behavior (the frame is fine).

    Sorry for being picky, but i really like the clean and simple look of Mini Chat.

    This sounds doable. I always ask for feedback and suggestions cuz there's no way I'd think of all the relevant adjustments and options that an app could benefit from. I may be the coder, but many good ideas that have gone into my apps were feature requests. :)

    I will try and get this into the next release (no guarantees on when that will be posted).

    Cheers,

    @Mumaransa I got the MiniChat style worked out on the text entry box, thanks for the download link. I have a few more things to fix/update and should have a new release posted in the next day or two. :)
