BTTV/FFZ support, better whispering system and slow chat timers.
I've been checking out Mixer a bit after watching Ninja's stream. One of the first things I noticed is how the whispering system and the emote situation could be improved. For whispering, it's basically impossible in popular channels (like Ninja's for example) you'll miss your whisper. Twitchs implementation of whispers is awesome, something like that would be very nice to see.
As for emotes, in my opinion Mixer's emotes are really boring and the lack of Better Twitch TV / Franker Face Z emotes is a massive blow. BTTV/FFZ emotes are a massive part of Twitch Chat (I know this is Mixer but Twitch just does it better in my opinion) in a lot of big streamers channels. (Basically all of them, because the emotes are just really good and you can create your own and then submit them for review) Best example of the popularity of these FFZ emotes would be xqcow's chat. Twitch emotes aren't even used anymore, almost all emotes used in chat are from BTTV/FFZ. I hope Mixer contacts the creator of one of those and helps make the addon work for Mixer.
Also, right now if the chat is in slow mode you don't know when you can type again. It's just guessing and when you write the message when your still on cooldown the message is lost. The cooldown should be visible, twitchs implementation of this is also great.
Thanks for listening :)
An alternative for BTTV is already available, check the Chrome Webstore or the Mozilla Addon site for MixrElixr or go to MixrElixr.com, developed by Team Crowbar the team behind Firebot and some other tools for Mixer. The Chrome extension works for all Chromium based browsers(Brave, Edge Chromium, Opera and so on).
The latest update for MixrElixr also has a cooldown timer for chat if the channel they are in has slow chat enabled.
This!! As a new user who is used to twitch chat, this would go a long way! And also not send the message if the slow mode timer is not done, I dont wait to retype my message each time this happens.
This would be huge!
As a Mixer partner I'd love to see this implemented as well. It'd help every single channel on Mixer and really spice up the chat
I 100% agree!.
Whispers need to have their own little chat box and something like "Better twitch tv" needs to be supported. "Better twitch tv" is a google add on that lets you customize mixer and add emotes for others to use and share.
As you mentioned, someone like xqc would never leave twitch if mixer didnt have those emotes. When you have 5k+ viewers you need emotes that have meaning and are easily recognised because all of the messages will just fly away in the chat in a matter of seconds.
BTTV is a must if mixer wants to succeed!!
The timer for slow mode needs to be added aswell so it is clearly visible and less confusing!!.
