Using simple interface techniques, you can hover the chat from simple input and output windows over your map, to create the illusion of chatting on an MMORPG.

Version 2 is a much better working version of the demo. I've solved the problems of being unable to move while chatting, being able to move the backdrop, and being able to move the main window. I've also rewritten everything so that it's hopefully easier to understand.

Version 3 is version 2, apparently I never updated the files.

The second window needs the movement macros defined, in order to make it move if you press a direction button while focus is in the chat.

No, that is not the case, it needs to be entered, unless you copy and paste the window.

You don't need the second window to have a macro set anyways, since all it is used for it talking. The main window does everything.
