A ingame chat in Dinowaurs would be nice. A little Box which you open with T or Enter .

Aw, man!  I saw "Air Grenade" and thought that that would be the suggestion.

I am severely disappointed.

Would this chat be just between the 2 playing?  Or between whom?

we were thinking of having a key move focus over to the kong game chat, like hit "enter" and then you can immediately type in the chat, since clicking over there can be really disruptive to the game and everything.  Once you've typed your message, "enter" puts the message in and also brings your focus back to the game.  whadya think?

Kong chat works fine for right now, but once we get more people in, if everyone that's battling uses the Game Chat for taunting, the channel might get a bit flooded. Although most people should probably be concentrating on the game instead of taunting. /shrug

Eventually, a simple chat with the 3 most recent lines at the top I think would suffice. 'Enter' to switch to Text-Entering-Mode and the 'Enter' would submit your text and bring you back to the game. Optionally, a cancel text-entering key. Not a big deal, of course.

Or perhaps in-game symbolic taunting, like rearing up and stomping the ground. Or peeing to mark your territory, and humiliate a downed opponent. Hmm... yes.. if their corpse lingers for a couple seconds, then I could dino-hump it, like in Halo... [/feature creep]

The "enter" button for chat will be perfect!

What about audio taunts? (typing in "taunt 1" would play a sound clip taunt #1)

We have the audio content for it. Smiley  I suppose we just need to tie it in.  Maybe pressing "t"?

Hmm.. yeah, 't' to talk or taunt works really well.
