Shoutbox Changes

nom nom nom
By now, some of you have noticed that the shoutbox has changed a bit... This is not just an improvement in performance. There are also some new features.

I strongly encourage you to experiment with it.. and find out all the new cool things that it does.

In fact, each person that posts instructions/pictures (in this thread) of how to do something new and cool with the shoutbox will receive something random (I don't know.. I will see what I can scrounge up for prizes).

Great New Feature

Clicking on the upward arrow
Clicking on the upward arrow causes the shoutbox to be opened into a new window of it's own.

This is a convenient size window to have beside your favorite windowed Aeria Game. Sorry for those who play full screen! Very Happy Works great for those using a widescreen!

Now you can easily keep an eye on the shoutbox while you mindlessly grind...the best of both worlds.

yeah, I just noticed the changes. clicking the arrow makes a popup window of the shoutbox.
also clicking - button on the forum shoutbox closes(or turns off) the shoutbox, then clicking the square will open the shout box again.
when you close the popup shoutbox you need to click the square to get the forum shoutbox open again.

I totally love these changes. Keeping sb open in one window does help a lot.

I can only see these two changes, are there any that i didn't notice yet?

I only did this using Chrome.

Putting the popped out shout box into a tab.

1. Pop out the shout box.

2. Right click the pop out and pick the Show as tab option.

3. Drag the tab from the new window into the current session of Chrome

Only if you like alt tabbing back from full screen though XD.

I like the new changes.
I can minimize it by pressing that - button, and then I can have a "messenger like"/popped-out shoutbox by pressing that diagonal arrow button.
Yay, now I can have my multiple shoutbox open without having the forum open. It really comes in handy to stalk SBs when I'm in a game~ ^^
