DESCRIPTION
This addon includes many dialog features, to enhance the game experience and to customize it your way.
All-in-one, but without fancy colors or font changes to stick with a sober, simple 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 Rhaevyn,

As far as I know,
the issue is only when using the "centered view" option.

I admit I don't have much time these last weeks/months.
But I know I have to correct that !

Cheers,
N'Tak'

Hey Zottelchen,

Thank you for your feedback.
I will try to make a rule to remove the centered view on stations.

Cheers,

Issue happens with all the shrines there. Something with the new zone then.

Edit: BTW totally forgot about the dialog centerizer It's great! Will keep testing it.

Should add a screenshot to the addon gallery :P https://i.imgur.com/Mk31aVU.png

Hey Phuein,

I'm not sure to understand exactly what you mean.
Can you share pictures along with your explanations ?

Cheers,
N'Tak'

You know what, I'm realizing that this doesn't happen with the shrines in Vvardenfell. Only in the new zone Blackwood -> Leyawiin. Pics (last one just showing it with Options Tweaks -> Display Instantly): https://imgur.com/a/sJpVgg4

Hey NTak!

Thanks for this awesome mod! Alongside NTak Camera it goes a long way to improve immersion (I myself play with no text, just the audio from the character). Can I suggest an option to hide/disable the name entirely and/or an option to move the name on the Y-axis? Loved the Centerize Window Tweak btw, not having any issues with it so far!

I was digging around in the lua, and found the checks around whether or not the option is visible, and have been making tweaks to try and accomplish what I was looking for, either by removing the checks for visibility, or even updating the alpha values to make the text transparent

If you are interested (and assuming I finally get the code to do what I'm trying to accomplish), do you have this managed in a github that i could contribute back to?
Hey phirehero,

Thank you for you nice feedback, I really appreciate it !

About your modification…
I am curious about the way you want to add custom RP responses.
And after that RP responses, I understand that you want the options to stay hidden until the player press a button or something ?

The code isn't on GitHub, it's only there for now.

Cheers,
N'Tak'
Yeah, so for my scenario, I am going through a questing zone, and creating new dialog as responses for the vestige to respond back. Nothing that is actual written text in the game, but instead voice over for video / streaming.

and yeah, the resonses would stay hidden / transparent, but when the hotkey is hit to choose a resonse, it still progresses forward. So if a dialog choice was "What happened?" i could instead voice out a different response in it's stead, then hit '1' to choice that choice, even through its hidden, and the NPC will continue on in the conversation as per usual

The code i commented out was in the HandleChatterOptionClicked, where you have a check if the alpha for the choice is 0, then just return back
