Annoying Feature: Playerlist Auto-Close

I like to keep my playerlist open so I can see who I have PMs from, and every time I answer one, the list closes. Normally I wouldn't complain, but having to mash F7 every two seconds to keep my list open is incredibly irritating.

Yeah, I found this annoying too. I only remember it happening on Vista. I often resorted to the scripted playerlist.

Yep, this should have had a quick fix when v5 was first released but obviously never happened.

People who don't have this problem have their playerlists outside the Graal window area. :3

Do people honestly keep their playerlists IN the Graal window area?
It's not like it's small, it blocks out a lot of the screen.

Well, yeah, I have Graal covering my whole screen. Too used to it.

I agree, I don't have it fullscreen. But I have Graal maximized, and just press F7 whenever I need to open my playerlist.

Why isn't the playerlist window simply considered a window always on top? Isn't this something fairly simple to code? Guess it doesn't matter as the next version will have completely scripted windows anyways.

Honestly, if you simply have Graal maximized I suggest just shrinking the window small enough to put the playerlist on the side. Otherwise you're stuck using the scriptedd playerlist.

Yeah seriously, specially since it was like this before v5.

Mash? Sort of not the right time to add in extreme exaggeration into the deal, when all you do is have to tap it once.

Is it really that time consuming to press F7?

I don't have a problem with it. However, it's not about wanting to view the playerlist, it's about wanting to view it constantly instead of periodically. I posted solutions, but I can see how it's a problem... but I can also see how it's futile to want otherwise -- next Graal version won't have an external playerlist, and the next version is the only version we're going to see first.

Next version will have external gui windows, right?
In which case that is totally awesome. Scripted playerlist adds so many possibilities.
(Assuming servers have access to the script and can make changes to/replace it locally.)
