OOC chat with (( )) not working with Kokua RLV 6.0.1.44374

Mea culpa. When Marine decided to follow the ‘hardcore’ approach by disabling certain features (see http://realrestraint.blogspot.com/2018/06/hardcore-rlv.html ) we took the usual Kokua approach of putting in switches to allow the features that weren’t already switchable to become user controlled. This included continuing to support OOC chat with (( )) and a new preferences option to change it.

In RLV 2.9.24.1 / Kokua RLV 6.0.1.44374 there is this change (see http://realrestraint.blogspot.com/2018/12/rlv-29241.html ) :-

– fixed : Treat OOC chat messages — those with “((” and “))” — like any other chat messages (they used to go through any RLV restriction, then were always blocked even without any restriction at all). This is the fix you will need for RR v1.31 once it’s out.

As usual, we adopted this change. However, what only just became clear is that this change breaks the OOC chat processing logic. That’s not an issue for Marine’s viewer itself which no longer allows OOC chat to be turned on, but it’s a problem for Kokua.

The problem is that this change sends the OOC chat down the same processing as redirected chat and prevented it from getting added to local chat.

If having a working OOC chat facility is vital you can revert to Kokua 6.0.0.44291 or 6.0.0.44301 which is still available from https://sourceforge.net/projects/kokua.team-purple.p/files/Kokua-SL/

I’ve got a fix lined up which both satisfies Marine’s requirement for (( )) chat to get sent to channels and also continues to send it to open chat whilst OOC chat is enabled. This will be in our next RLV build.
