Local Chat for High Fidelity UI Reworked

I’ve reworked the local chat script to display in its own window in desktop mode.


This window can be dragged outside the Interface window and can be resized. As well as being more readable, you can past text into the input pane and copy test from the chat history.

When in HMD display mode, the chat is displayed in an HUD window as before.

The script URL remains the same: http://ctrlaltstudio.com/downloads/hifi/scripts/chat.js

Note: You may need to do a “Reload” in the Running Scripts window to refresh your cached copy.


  • 15 Aug 2015: Made the size and position of the chat window be remembered between program runs.
  • 8 Aug 2015: Fixed chat messages not being displayed when script loads.

    The full description URL isn’t working. Also, please excuse my ignorance but will a fresh copy of the viewer download need to be done to get this feature ?

      This feature is a script you can run within High Fidelity’s Interface client or “viewer”; no particular release of it is required though it is updated frequently and you should regularly update.

      Link fixed … thanks very much for letting me know.
