About Increased duration of the display chat messages

This mod increases the duration of the display messages and increases number of messages printed.

The mod is incompatible with mods change color service messages (such as this one), so how the same file.

copy the "gui" folder to res_mods\0.7.X\ folder

Original XML was decompressed by World Of Tanks Mod Tools v0.5
and changed lines

    <lifeTime>	60	</lifeTime>
    <alphaSpeed>	10	</alphaSpeed>

p.s. sorry for my google translate English.

compatible with 0.8.2
Display time-60 seconds.

    Hmmm, it filling the entire left hand side of my screen with messages if there's enough chatter is a bit too much.

    Any chance of a config file to choose how many lines to display.   Bonus if we can tweak the time to fade that way too.

    I can offer, the instructions to modify messenger.xml

    unpack / res / gui / messenger.xml

    look for the section:

    <lifeTime> 3 </ lifeTime>
    <alphaSpeed> 3 </ alphaSpeed>

    ... blah-blah-blah ...

    It is approximately 41-th row of the extracted XML.
    lifeTime - the lifetime of the message. The more - the longer. But with zero messages are not erased (sort of).
    alphaSpeed ​​- decay rate. That's the whole HS, by the way, because it is not speed, and the value of its inverse. Thus, the smaller, the faster the fade message. At zero may not disappear entirely (I have not tested).

    Enough to put a value close to zero (0.001 - but always with a point and not a comma!), And the battle will not be visible Chat.

    just changing the time amount (I used wottools0.5) leads to an error when saving:

    Invalid XML dicument. The document does not have a root element.

    I am no programmer, so get lost, but it looks like there is a need for some additional code like "AppendChild(xmlroot)"...blah, blah, blah
