Well, for a long time I had wanted my game to have an outstanding chat display aposed to the traditional box of text. I tried several different ways when the new BYOND came out however, no luck. It wasn't until just recently(two days ago... I think) when I finally figured out a way. Using CSS, HTML, Javascript, and DM I was able to create a completly customized chat display/input. I know by now you must be saying, "Why should I care??"

Well, because it's now a demo!!!!!


Version 2: I had to fix some problems with movement. Still not perfect, however it's passable.

P.S. Anchors were a hastle. It seems as though it's best not to set them to auto anchor.
