    Default API to allow sendi texts to player's chat channel ie /r,g,s,p... /1, 2, 3.....?

    I want to be able to send texts to a player's chat channel ie /r,g,s,p... /1, 2, 3.....Is there an API available to accomplish this task yet? I apologize if I've missed it but I couldn't find anything on this while looking through the API list.

    Not yet. So far, all we can do is print to the player's console (chat window).

    Hi Aieny, by any chance do you know if there's a difference between print() and print_console()? I tested both and I didn't see a difference between those 2 so I'm just wondering why two different commands to do the same thing?

    print_console was removed

    print puts addon name in front of message

    print_raw won't add addon name in front of message

    The original intention was that print() would print to both the screen and to the system debug log, and print_console() would print only to the screen. Eventually I realized this was kind of dumb (and I hadn't implemented the system debug log part of it anyway) so I ripped out print_console entirely. I'll revisit the print functions later.

    Ugh. That in my opinion is kinds shaky. There's so many plat sellers spamming as soon as you log in as it is.. that would just open it up to perople that don't have their machines rooted.

    Not anymore than it is now, really. I want this functionality so I can implement Chatterbox. The existing chat throtlles strike me as roughly adequate.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)
