[Request] PanicMessageDisplayTime variable into Options.cfg
« on: August 10, 2019, 04:46:50 pm »
Requesting  the PanicMessageDisplayTime  variable to be kindly put into options.cfg, so we can do this:

PanicMessageDisplayTime: 2            (this is the default)

or

PanicMessageDisplayTime: 1

or

PanicMessageDisplayTime: 1.5        (one and a half seconds)

or

PanicMessageDisplayTime: 0             (prevents displaying any panic messages, the function exits immediately without invoking the window drawing routine)

Is "noAlienPanicMessages" from the battlescape options list not enough?

Sometimes it is worth to count how many enemies are there still by counting the panicking or berserking ones.  There are gameplays, when this window is satisfactory: playing with a small squad, everybody is wounded & bleeding and I'm stressing about how many enemies are still there. Then they began to panic and I can count the bastards!

From your description you want to toggle it during the battle.

In case you did not know this is already possible. During the battle you can go to the options menu ( ESC button), see the screenshot for the option.
