No way to shut off marketplace spam?

25 posts in this topic

Posted

I've been playing since beta and I'm about to lose my mind.  I absolutely do. NOT. care. when someone lists something on the marketplace, how much it went up for, etc.  The only time I care about the marketplace is when I'm looking at it.  I've gone into Settings->Game and checked Turn off system notifications for Marketplace, and it doesn't work.  I'm still seeing the spam in my chat, which makes it difficult to keep up with guild chat sometimes.  The only way to reconcile that is to shut off system messages entirely, but I want some of those system messages, just not the ones related to the marketplace.

This game already does a lot to make it difficult or pointless to try to play with other people, so can you please let us shut this crap off so at least chatting with our friends isn't obnoxious?  Thanks.

Screenshot included to show you my settings and my chat spam.

They are especially pointless for people at low levels unless all they've been doing is fishing I guess...

I had this same problem but checking marketplace in that section did kill the updates for me iirc. Another thing you can do is create a second chat tab and set spam type chat like [System] to that tab and uncheck them for your main tab. If for some reason you need to see something you can always switch tabs but the other 99% of the time your main tab stays clear. I use this dual tab setup and it works great. Might want to bug report that marketplace setting.

Make sure you are hitting apply, and then confirm after you check the box, then try doing /reloadui after and see if that works. I find that command generally fixes a lot of things that should have applied but didn't.

Nope, didn't stop the spam.  I think that marketplace check box only stops it from printing it at the top of your screen.  It doesn't seem to have any effect on chat, which is beyond annoying.  I cannot overstate how stupid and obnoxious it is to tell people every time a valuable item goes up on the marketplace.  Who thought that was a good idea?

Yeah, it's broken. At the moment I just put everything I don't want to see in a second chat window and uncheck them from my main chat window.

Disabling it from the options should disable it in chat. If we don't care about it, we obviously don't care. Seriously. I should have to hide a whole channel for notifications that are irrelevant to me.

This.  All of this.

This is my single greatest annoyance in this game (of which there are many).  I've done everything recommended here and at reddit, etc.  I have it all disabled from chat, from options, I tried filtering it (knew that wouldn't work in advance), /reloadui, restarting the client, etc. and I still get a nonstop flood of popups at the top of my screen and spammy chat windows regardless.  It's hard to take a game this littered with spam and overcrowding seriously or get anything productive done.

It definitely needs more robust options. I rather not see some system pop-ups  like marketplace or guild wars/quests.

Holy cow.... This game has been out for a while now, and this shit is still not fixed? 

I just came back to the game after months of not playing, and this crap is still here. Why? Do developers just seriously not giving a shit about something so simple but vital? Do they not listen to people on the US forums at all? Are Korean players okay with this? Because I seriously can't handle playing this more than half an hour without going nuts by all the pointless pop ups that I couldn't care less about yet can't turn off?

You can choose that kind of system messages you want to see, well at least I and my in-game-friends can do it.

I have everything turned off, there is still crap popping up in the middle of my screen  and in chat every few seconds. I spend half an hour last night searching through settings and then forums to see if there is a way to disable it, and apparently there is not. Its been over half a year since the release, and the simple settings that suppose to disable that crap are still broken.

I really shouldn't be surprised.

Marketplace "spam" can be turned off when you check the Marketplace box under Game->Turn off system notifications. This option is in the game since the beginning, at least for us. If it annoys you in the chat, turn it off in the char window settings or simply create a second window and set up one without system messages and the other one for system only.

One thing you can't get rid off are the notifications about Worker related tasks (production, gathered, etc.)

They aren't broken.  Turn off the pop ups on screen using the settings.  Turn off the spam in chat window by turning off that filter in the chat tab settings.  It's not that hard.  Works just fine.

I actually still see some market related stuff in chat even though it's turned off, registration queue stuff. As you can see in the screenshot, marketplace and general are turned off, that tab is just for system messages for ME so I can switch to that tab while afk fishing and see the messages of what was gotten but still get that marketplace stuff in there.

Even when loading up the game the next day I get those pre-order and registration queue marketplace things in my chat, and people's enchantment stuff as well.

Yup, it's a bug.   Kind of like when you Edit the UI to hide the chat window all together and yet the moment you come out of any loading screen, it's back to being visible and usually accompanied by market info even when you have all boxes in chat options unchecked.

The chat settings i've set have always worked for me but like many other people i also had trouble with changing the position of my characters and then i found a thread on the forum where a player named Amlug posted a solution and it worked, every setting ingame got reset, even the chats but now i am freely able to change the position of my characters and even the pictures of my characters when changing while ingame got renewed so maybe this will help with you guys as well. Just in case though i had made a copy of the mentioned folder so that i can put it back in case something goes wrong. It's the second last post in this thread: http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/38870-option-to-change-character-order-at-character-list/&page=3

I just played and looked at it again. Was messing with it and now it seems that if I enabled all the notifications, none of them show. Weird? I know.
