DESCRIPTION
This addon includes many dialog features, to enhance the game experience and to customize it your way.
All-in-one, without fancy colors or custom fonts, in order to stick with a sober interface.
/!\ I recommend to not use a custom UI scale to prevent any improper behaviour.
  • Customize!
    ⋅ Resize and tweak the dialog window,
    ⋅ Tweak all the content: Title, text, and options,
    ⋅ Add nice icons and/or numbers before chat options,
  • Keep history!
    ⋅ Keep an eye on the history of the conversation,
    (I suggest you to vertically shift the window to display more history)
  • Use animation!
    ⋅ Use the text fading animation to make it appear while the NPC is talking,
    ⋅ Customize the speed for regular and some specific dialogs.
  • Specify behavior!
    ⋅ For some specific dialogs, you can mute the NPC, auto-open the store, and speed-up or instantly display the content.

Hey linkelolo,

Thanks for your last messages.
I'm gonna update the addon with the fontZero correction.

I don't understand correctly what happens with this one.
Can you maybe share screenshots or explain in private (here or Discord) ?

Cheers,
Takit

This is amazing, I absolutely love it, thank you so much for creating it!

Any chance centerize will be made available for gamepad in the future?

Love that centre text, but I've transitioned to gamepad haha

Fixed by going into NTakDialog.lua and changing the font-size of CustomFont to -20.

Should look like this:

Code:
local fontZero		= CustomFont("CHAT_FONT", -20, "soft-shadow-thin")

After the update today if you pick the no text (listen!) option the text still displays but really really small. I tried messing with the settings but to no avail.

Nothing game-breaking just thought i'd leave a note!

Hello, is there an option to show text with button click when you have Remove all the text (listen!) enabled? I really love that option for immersion but sometimes I can't understand everything that is said, particularly when they are introducing new names etc. so I'd like to show text with a click in those instances.

Hey xbon,

I am sorry but I can't address those issues.
I do not own any assistant, I can't test anything ingame that implies an assistant.

Cheers,

Glad you like it !
Thanks for the tweak.
I will try to find a convenient way to choose in which channel to output my mods.

Issue noted. I'm confident it can be done, I'll just need to find some time.

An option in the chat interaction menu to skip dialogs would be awesome if possible to achieve.
