Hi,

I am creating a chat channel for a 2-person group in a 16 person session, but instead of the player ID showed as player 1 said something  and player 2 said something in their player channel. I want the label showed as the exact match. For example, if player 1 and player 16 are matched together, I want in the chatroom the box shows: Player 1 said something and player 16 said something.

Thank you.

@staticmethod
def vars_for_template(player):
  return dict(my_nickname="Player {}".format(player.id_in_subsession))

in the template:

{{ chat nickname=my_nickname }}

Hi Chris,

The chat works well but the message of the participants is not recording in the excel file I think, are there any extra code I need to put to record the chat message? Thank you!

Chat messages are not shown in the session’s “data” tab. They are available through the Excel data export page.

Hi Chris,

Thank you! I downloaded the excel but I did not find the user-input data. Can you help me take a look at this, thank you!
