Show '...' for muted text when deafened

Hello,

is it possible to make all of the lines normally containing the '...' disappear when the subject option is turned off? That way, it works like in Marine's RLV viewer, and it makes toys like the RR jammer work a little better (the jammer can decide what I hear and how I hear it, and it's kinda confusing to have all the 'Someone: ...'-lines also.

Thanks!

Advanced -> RestrainedLove menu, uncheck "Show '...' for muted text when deafened".

Hello,

that option only removes the '...' part, not all of the line!

So instead of, for instance

Shigeko says: ...

I get

Shigeko says:

When I really want to get


(nothing at all)

Thanks! :)

@vanilla, I can understand your wanting to get to a truer 'deafness' with the device, however, when working with text based communication, I wonder if you have thought about the consequence of the person being 'deafened' to the point of believing there may be something not working right with their viewer, that it is malfunctioning, not just imposing 'deafness' ?

Hello,

the default should be to show the '...', as it is now, of course, so no real reason to think something is not working. And you can always turn it on again, if you think something is truly wrong (the option is not a restriction or locked in any way, you decide if you want to see the '...' or not).

The reason Marine made the option, was to make it possible to really change the way you heard things, and, to make it 'prettier', add a way to hide all the extra '...' lines.

It's kinda annoying to hear a person speak through the RR Jammer and also see the muted '...' line as well. Pretty please make it an option to hide the line completely.. you can even hide that option somewhere in the debug settings, if you want! :)

Thanks!

Considering the default is to display the "...", that it is a user choice to disable it completely, and that this choice can be reverted at any time via the Advanced -> RestrainedLove menu, I made the change in the Cool VL Viewer v1.26.0.21 and v1.26.1.9 and now, when deafened and RestrainedLoveShowEllipsis is FALSE, the viewer fully skips chat lines instead of displaying empty lines.
