Heh, nice idea to copy nearly everything from my clientmod's first post. :D
Could you write the chatlog also into a file?
Note that I've recently renamed myself on github and co. to "Desour". (I'm bad at naming things.)

Yeah I'm pretty bad at writing bbcode so I used your post as an example. I can't save it to a normal file because CSM doesn't give mods direct filesystem access, however you can find the json file the mod saves to in "/client/mod_storage/chatlog"

Very cool! Is this a mod, or a feature with the latest dev build?

Thanks for the mod! It's a pity that clientside mods can't access the filesystem :-( Thus we need a second script in order to read what was stored.

I can't really read it. I opened it with LibreOffice because it seems to be a CSV, but it looks unformatted.
