Split ChatThis mod splits the chat box into two, one for user chat and the second for in-game event notifications. Both panels are movable and resizable. Holding down 'z' will brings up the history for BOTH panels now.
(This is my first mod and code is quite a mess atm, Ill get around to fixing that later.)

Why did you make a honmod that overwrites an entire default UI package?
Just add your stuff at the bottom in the mod.xml
Waiting for fixing =)

need the history-keybind on your to do list asap though^^
Version 0.3 is now out. Both panels are now movable and resizable. Haven't managed to make 'z' bring up the history on both yet. If anyone has any ideas on how to get this to work please say so, It's driving me insane.

really nice to see this, to bad it don't work in conjunction with miniUI.
Wow I have yet to try this but it's amazing you decided to make this when I asked if this kind of mod exists. These forums got some nice and active people in here.
Agreed. Not working with miniUI atm. Getting this error with the mest recent version of miniUI.
Could not find string starting with " <panel noclick="true" passivechildren="true">" as sought by line 21 of /home/kokarn/HoN/game/mods/Split chat.honmod/mod.xml
Okey I have tested and it's exactly what I needed! Here is some suggestions:
1. Add a way to look at game notification history. It only works for the chat now. (I see it is on the to-do-list but I'm saying it anyways)
2. The default placement of notifications for 4:3 aspect ratio is a bit off, it goes through the right edge of the screen. If you have widescreen you could put the game in windowed mode and somehow tweak the default setting. The best default placement would probably be the same as in your screenshots (the chats on top of each other).
3. Add an option to change the font size. Personally I would like to change the font size for the notifcations to smaller and keep the chat same.
4. You can't resize the chat panel to be perfect. In the movf menu the "User chat panel" text probably blocks it. Notice the "big" gap between the oldest message and the top border. http://img638.imageshack.us/img638/7942/honchat.png
Really good job, keep it up!
