That's a very good point.

Yeah they have to be in the game 100%, with an option to turn off if desired. RPers really got screwed with this one.

No, enabling chat bubbles this way doesn't work on the live client, unfortunately.

Actually Zoeller had made it pretty clear that it was a high priority POST launch. ie: After they deal with the initial post launch bug squashing and holidays. I doubt we see it until sometime in mid to late January.

Hm, well. I must have remembered it wrong then. James Ohlen did say they were trying to get it done in time for launch however.
Hopefully it will be before the 30 days of free playtime are up, otherwise we may be loosing a lot of roleplayers and other people that depend on chat bubbles, which would be a shame.

I'm commander frigidman, and I support chat bubbles.

They did say during beta, chat bubbles were a high priority. However ever since then, we've seen nothing done towards the effect. So, we continue to make threads like this, to let the community voice the need.

Naysayers can naysay all they want. Luckily they are a teeny minority on the subject.

Yeah, like it or not, there are many star wars roleplayers exiled from SWG who have grown so accustomed to existing solely in chat bubbles. I know people here in swtor want to turn a blind eye and somehow magically think no one here came from swg, but they have, and they are here as part of the community.

If a game as old as that was able to pull off bubbles so well... how come a new game like this cannot? I can only hope the delay is because Bioware are really making them awesome. And not some cheap knockoff like you see in LotRO, W**, AoC, et al.
