In this week's Old School update we've got a new private chat feature to clear your private message history. We've also got a new options menu for graphics and interface settings to help keep the settings tab nice and simple. Let's jump into the details.
Clear private chat history
You can now clear your private message history by right clicking the private chat stone beneath the chatbox and selecting 'clear history'. This can be used to quickly and easily clear up any old private messages that are lingering for a bit longer than necessary.
Advanced settings menu
With the release of resizable mode the settings tab was getting a little full. In order to reduce clutter in the menu, and to allow more room for more graphics toggles, we've separated out some interface and graphics options into an 'advanced options' menu. You can access this by clicking the 'advanced options' button found inside the settings tab.
As can be seen in the above screenshot, we have also added two toggles. You can now decide whether or not you'd like to be able to click through your chat box or whether hotkeys can be used to close side-panels when using resizable mode.
We've got a lot of other feedback changes we'd like to make for resizable, including the popular requests for a zoom control or scaled-up versions of the chatbox, interfaces and minimap. Ian's been working hard in his personal time towards these; however, they are larger jobs, and will take longer to implement. We'll keep you updated on the progress of these features in the coming weeks.
