View Full Version : Message/recieved item log?

Yesterday, I stumbled across an in-game menu where I could see chat logs, but also things like scrip, ark-salvage, received items etc. It wasn't a separate chat tab, it was a separate page.



It looked like a log of all the messages that pop up on the left combined with chat stuff. I might be able to find a screenshot of it…

I can’t find it now…was it some secret dev debug log? Either way, it would be handy to see occasionally since it’s easy to miss something during the action.


And thanks in advance for the replies :)

No, it's the system chat. You can see your drops etc there. You can turn it on in your chat settings.

You can also see JP drops for people nearby, so at least you know someone is having a good day.. :)

Thanks for the info 726... and Mr Devlin!

I have now added 'system chat' to tab 2 and can see more or less the same thing. For some reason, the page I had before was almost full screen and the ark salvage icons were green instead of white.

Generally, I set my tabs up like this over Xbox version. Hope it helps.
Tab 1- Group, Team, Clan, Officer
Tab 2- Private, Whispers, Trade
Tab 3- System, Errors, EGO, Rewards
Tab 4- All categories

Thanks xSalemx. I might try that in future.

What are 'Whispers' exactly? I imagined they would be players nearby trying to chat you up!

You can whisper anyone in the game by typing /w (character name here) then your message. To reply to a whisper type /r (message here). No one else can see them. They're like private chat except that you can whisper with as many people as you want at the same time.

Thanks for the info, 7264827848264950714. :) So, if I can type fast enough, I can say "well done xyz" when we complete some event.

Doesn't that 726... name make it tricky to contact you in game? :rolleyes: I know I've spent ages trying to get people's names right when I couldn't get them nearby.

As an update, I think it must have been the (system) chat history page that I stumbled across:
