Mic Wrist Button for HiFi

Sometimes while in your HMD in High Fidelity, you want to quickly toggle your microphone on or off. Or even just see its current state.

Mic button on wrist

A handy wrist button enables you to do this without opening the tablet:

  • If your finger or laser is near, it appears and shows the current mic state.
  • Touch with your index finger or laser it to toggle it on/off.

Local Chat HMD Display Updated

I’ve updated the local chat script to display in a movable, resizable window on the HUD overlay when using an HMD. In desktop mode, the chat window can still be dragged outside the Interface window.

Local Chat Updated to Use Messages Object

I’ve updated the local chat script to use High Fidelity’s “Messages” object for communications instead of using an external Web server application. As before, chat windows are displayed in both desktop and HMD views. The primary user-visible difference is that chat history from the last 30 minutes is no longer displayed when you log in or visit a domain.

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.

Updates:

  • 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.
