Chat Token instead of Character Picture

Post by Darelius »

I dont know, if its a Bug or a feature, so i post it here.

All about the Chat Avatar!

When its avtivated, it shows the Portrait, if exist, instead of the Token (what will fit far beter in the Chat). So it there an option to change that permanently or otherwise in the Options?

Never noticed that. Not sure if that's a bug, recent change or has always been like that.

But if you're going to impersonate a token and it shows the image in the impersonation, imo that should be the image that is shown in chat. But you're right, it shows the portrait rather than the token image. Size is 40x40(?) in either case though. There was a recent change in 1.7 to chat, maybe it was done then. You can go to Github and post a bug report or a feature request to allow for the token image to put in to chat when there is a portrait image. This could be a preferences setting or clicking the impersonated image could toggle between images.

Whatever (or wherever) Github is, i posted it here, that should be enough, i thought.
