this thing suck ... its making my page too slow !!!! i hate it .. ,make an option that i can close/ remove it from my page.. i dislike it soooooo much


If chat is causing pages to be slow, that is an issue that needs to be fixed. Running TC in an iframe, means chat can't cause any slowness to the site, so i'm unsure of what you're experiencing. Chat is loaded once, at the start, every page load after that, chat is already loaded and does not load again. Please, PLEASE provide more information so we can actually do something about it!!


REMOVE CHAT... Simple Fix and Simple Solution..



No?

Yes ratings and posts in this thread have been somewhat negative, but what do you expect? People who are enjoying chat and have no reason to post / rate, simply won't. This is exactly why we're keeping chat up for everyone - to gain feedback, so we can fix the problems with people who dislike chat.

Instead of screaming "Remove chat" which is simply selfish considering at least 90% of TC like chat (a game-wide vote will show this soon). Tell us what the problem is, so we can fix it.

Chat is required to be on, on the majoirity of peoples accounts, because this isn't going to work if some people have it off, and some have it on.


if you don't like chat

logg in

www.torncity.com instead of torn.com or www.torn.com

by the way i dnt have chat for some reason

And if your Game wide vote shows nobody wants this JAVA CHAT.. will you remove it?

Faction chat was fine before, it is now too buggy to use, half of what I type does not post.
Why do we not have the option to disable ALL chat boxes?


Because if you turn it off, your feedback (exactly this) will go away. We need your feedback so we can fix it, so you don't have to disable it. Just please give us more details next time.

You can disable all of them by choosing to log in through the mobile version of torn.

Obviously when this was released we realized it would not be for everyone. I do not understand why you need to come here and complain about it when you can just as easily log in using a method we have offered you to not have any boxes.

If you enjoy chat, but find some parts of it annoying or needing adjusted. I'm most certain the constructive criticism would be welcomed. They are open to suggestions on how to make it better for everyone. However "Omg this sucks" does not get anyone very far.

I don't have a problem with chat, however in my browser (IE 8), the chat boxes have double tabs behind them, I were to open "Company" the box will open, but another tab will be available, if I was to click that second tab it will overlook the chat box so there is two company chat boxes etc (a bit like Wndows cascading), all my options are set to "enable" with chat.

I think the reason why so many people dislike the global chat(which is the only one people really moan about) is because it gets spammed like hell, so if you could work on maybe getting one or two new staff to mod it then maybe people will begin to change there mind about it...

I've given you a 365 chat day ban Atari so you can stop spamming in this thread. Your feedback is simply immature not helpful whatsoever. Seriously, grow up. You're not even a donator - you've never given a single thing back to Torn, yet you feel like you can scream like a child at me, and tell everyone what is best for them. You're selfish, and someone i'd rather not see in Torn. Keep it down or you can be expecting more bans. This thread is for useful feedback, not your nonsense.

no, it is because most players of this game use IRC.TORN.COM port 6667. and join the channels they want... this is the most effective way, let them choose to join chat, not force everyone into a small room where its all spam... that is why i am complaining...

What exactly is 'buggy', we are not mind readers. Just a bit of detail and it could be corrected. That's all we are asking for.

@ Atari - Killing Chat completely would be a bad decision, there are some people that cant connect to IRC etc so they could use Chat to Chain and so on.

But there should be an option to allow users to turn chat off completely without having to log in via the "Mobile" option, Or go invisible on chat so it doesnt flash in the corner of out screen.

Ched, thank you for removing the chat from my screen for a year. Much Appreciated. Thanks

Oh, and for me not being a donator? My donator days expired yesterday... And for me who had over 1000+ Donator days, I believe I have contributed plenty to this game at $5 a DP. Just to let you know

first of all, not everyone likes using IRC, second of all, you moan about the spam. So when i suggest to putting in staff to help cut out the spam you reply "no"

First of all - thank you for taking my advice (or possibly you know it already!) and loading chat boxes in an iframe. This gives a better overall experience. I do have some suggestions though regarding chat:

- You should be able to disable chat altogether. This will placate those of us who have no use/reason to use chat and find it to be an annoyance or slowdown. It also reduces the load on your servers, it appears that the chat boxes are updating even when minimized.

- the URL in your browser should be fixed using Javascript to show your real URL. Right now it always shows /login.html

Although I do not see myself using the chat boxes, since I use IRC a lot, I do think it is a good addition for players who are not comfortable using IRC. But, in a way you are splintering your players because it would be entirely possible to send them to a chat room in IRC using mibbit or another web-based chat applet to keep your players connected together. By creating a new "chat" system you are splintering your players a bit on separate chat networks.

Another suggestion is to create a "mobile" version of torn city at m.torn.com. This would be a "lite" version without javascript or the things that cell phones are not very good at. This would also be a fast way for a player to get on and get their training/crimes in so to speak. You should already be forwarding mobile users automatically using mod_rewrite.

Give me a shout if you would like any assistance with this stuff.

I believe he means when the Torn screen just freezes. I mentioned it above but it seems I didn't rant on enough for anyone to notice it:P

If I may add, it would be good to be able to resize the chat boxes. Its hard to follow the chat especially in the Global rooms. The frequency of posts is too fast for that tiny box.

Maybe something like Gtalk's "popout" would be nice.

I'm grateful for the mobile log on option.

This morning I forgot to use it, and my anti-virus programme caught a Trojan.
TROJAN-DOWNLOADER.AGENT.BDBU
I logged on twice more, with the same result.

Finally logged on using the mobile option without trouble.
Has anyone else found this problem?
