v3.2.x should have that feature. v3.1.x and below don't have this in VB4.x

Read the install file buddy. It's right in that...It's step 4 in the upgrade. Don't you people read the Readme file?

Go in the Download/Upload item of the Language manager menu and then:
  1. Select the English language file from the Lang folder.
  2. Select the forum language to overwrite.
  3. Set the Ignore language version option to YES.
  4. Launch the upload.

Any ETA to the new chatbox? I am hoping it isn't as resource intensive as the current one. REALLY looking forward to it

When it's ready. No ETA.

3.1.x isn't resource intensive. Maybe you have a rogue process? Have you listed the process affinity?

That's the VB version. Sidebar isn't added until MGC CHAT VERSION 3.2.0. TOTALLY different things we are talking about here.

Ah, I see. Well I downloaded the latest file that's up there. Should I not have a sidebar option? Actually, I have the paid version from the site.

Read this again..............THE CURRENT VERSION DOESN'T HAVE THIS OPTION.

Scroll up and read about what's added in the new version aka 3.2.0. As I stated 2 times now, IT'S NOT IN ANYTHING BUT THE NEW VERSION.

K?

New version is BETA and not public yet.

I'm assuming you're working on this mod? Here's a suggestion - take your attitude and your winks, stick'em, then think about coding a little class and professionalism into your next release...since it's still in Beta and all that. K?

This mod isn't nearly good enough for you to come across the way you have on this page to people who are interested in learning more about the solution. Especially people who have paid your team for it. If you can't support people who are asking simple questions with non-condescending guidance, find another hobby or let someone else handle the support. You're the face of your business while you're in here "helping". Remember that, it's good advice....bro. Drop the attitude.



It's just another chatbox, Ranger. Checking your ego at the login forms would suit you well. Oh...and fix the "boing" notification noise with something less corny. It makes your mod seem amateur. G'head and mix that into the 3.2 release while you're at it.

Sorry , but I do free support. Just because you can't read the features added up top doesn't mean you can sit there and bash people. Sorry that you hate the world. But your ignorance shows how petty you are.



PS: that boing can be disabled. SIMPLY ANOTHER THING YOU'D KNOW IF YOU CONFIGURED your options. You can also make your own. You are proving your intelligence (lack of) without any effort on my part.
