Clearly some people have come across Xat’s message counter and word is starting to spread. Myself…I just found out about it and thought I’d share.
Xat has apparently added a feature to their debug mode (that a debug mode exists may in itself surprise some of you) that activates a message counter. Typing in a line of code sets the starting number and +1 is added to it each time you type in a new line of text.
Example: type “/debug msgcount 1″ into the chat (without the quotes)
This will do two things. It will activate the counter function for YOU and it will initialize the counter with a value of 1. Any text typed after this point will have a number appended to it. After having entered the code above our preceding line would read something like “This is my text “. If your were to type a second line, it might look something like “This is my second line of text “.
Example 2: type “/debug msgcount 100″ into the chat (again without the quotes)
Using the same examples above, with the counter now initialized at 100, you would get this:
“This is my text ”
“This is my second line of text ”
Why does this feature exist? We don’t know. it may simply be used for debugging the chat or, just maybe, it maybe a preview of something to come.
P.S. You can disable message count by typing /debug msgcount off
Go have fun with it
