    Best method to read chat box data?

    I'm looking for the best way of reading the chat box, eventually looking to tie it into IRC/etc. Right now all I'm interested is reading the content of the box and logging it. I looked into OCR, but the trebuchet font GW2 uses forces me into detection methods that are slow. Is there any documentation regarding packets? Or is there a reliable way to pull chat data from memory? I'm willing to put in the research work, but figured you all may save me some hours.

    Thanks for takin' the time,

    - EskimoPete

    Each channel has its own chattext-array (sorta array), I have not yet found where they are getting combined, I was not able to find that in the "Tab-class" nor in the chatclient or chatclientchannel.
    So far I have writing text into each channel and reading the text of each channel, but I cannot get the time nor who said it, just the text. I was going to add it to the minion bot in the next days, but I hoped to find the whole chat line, time, player, text , I guess channel + text only has to do the job. When it is added, you can easily bind it to IRC or anything like it through the lua interface that comes with gw2minion.

    Bummer about the array not having author information - kind of odd too. I'll keep digging around and report back here if I find anything of interest. Thanks for the heads up.

    It does have that info, but it is somehow encoded (I think)...

    We managed to read out the chat + be able to write into each channel, so if someone is searching for a SPAM BOT, grab the minion ^^
