Clear Chat / Transparent Chat

Have you ever looked at that annoying chat background that blocks your entire screen? Have you ever wanted it so that it was completely transparent? This pack if for you!

This pack changes the JSON files of the HUD and chat screen to remove the text background. The background of the text and chat screen is originally set to alpha 0.7, but I changed that to 0.0. All this does is change the background from partly translucent, to completely transparent, so you will be able to see what is happening while you're reading chat messages, or typing one. This can be really useful for severs if you have a small screen, because most servers tend to usually display a lot of messages in chat promoting ranks and advertising. If there are a lot of people on the server, the chat is usually always full of messages, because people are constantly socializing by using chat. You'll still be able to read chat messages, but they won't block your screen like before. I have included some before and after pictures so you can clearly see what the pack changes, and if the pack suits any of your needs. You can leave comments if you have any questions.

Hi love the pack and I am not sure if you will see this, but I was wondering if you could tell me what exactly you changed and where to make the text background transparent, because I am trying to add this to a personal pack of mine (I would just add this pack along with my pack, but the packs interfere with each other making somethings work and not work, so I wanted to see if I were to add this to my pack if it'll fix the problem). I have tried copying the files from your pack into my pack and I had some success, but since I am not experienced, there where still some small issues. So I was wondering if you had Discord so that I can DM you the problems that I am having and if you could help me fix it :), if not that's ok and I will continue trying on my own.

So under the ui folder, there should be a file called “chat_screen.json” and in that file everywhere you see the line

“alpha”: 0.7

Change that number to 0.0.

Hi again for some reason I couldn't figure out how to create a DM with you on discord so I just sent you a friend request (Username is just "JustMeDino") just so that I can ask you for a bit more help on my issues, sorry if this is a problem :)

Hi there! I'm Andy and I belong to a newly formed Minecraft map-making team called Parallax. I am one of the owners and a command block coder. We are currently developing a map for Manhunt where there are different modes, maps, and more settings and we would like to know if we are allowed to use this resource pack in our map, of course crediting you inside the map and on the map publication. Thank you and have an amazing day!

Yes, you can use my pack. Just add a link to this page specifically (not the direct download link). I'm glad you like it!

BTW 5 Stars !!!

Amazing!
I have a question, is it compatible with the Bedrock Bottom chat texture pack?
1
Yes, it is compatible. If it doesn't work, put bottom chat above clear chat in global resources

Hey man, im really interested in how you and others learn to do this type of stuff? not just transparent chats but like json editing for mc in general.
1
So I have a general background in coding, which means I can assume what certain things are called, like the variable for transparency in code is usually called "alpha", which is an example of my ability to study code and understand what everything means. JSON files in general are really easy to understand because the format is literally just:

"item": "value",

This makes it really easy to understand, so all I had to look for was

"alpha": 0.7

and change it to

"alpha": 0.0

And thats all. The JSON file editor I used by the way is called Brackets, and it is really to read all kinds of files and recognize all those file types and format the text. But I'm glad you're interested in this and thank you!

FINALLY THIS EXISTS I LOVE IT

Thanks! Even I was surprised this hasnt been made yet.

Again nice pack but I am trying to use fate client which is the first client for bedrock edition that gives you zoom, but for some reason with this pack on it does not let me
1
In your global resources, try switching which pack is above the other, that may help, since the pack on the top overpowers all the other packs
1
you can just use the fov changer plugin instead of that client. this gives you zoom too
1
Nice pack but it changes how the inventory looks, I use this pack that makes the inventory look transparent, and when I put on the pack it makes it look like the default inventory
1
What is happening is that that my pack is overpowering your pack, so in the global resources settings, make sure that your pack is BELOW my pack, and then it should be fixed.
1
Sorry actually make sure your pack is ABOVE my pack. I said it wrong
1
Oh ok I knew what you meant the first time but thanks it worked
1
Thank you so much! Tell me, is it possible to add a tweak to leave the background specifically for the text?
(Using translator. I'm sorry in advance)
1
Probably not, since the text size and amount of characters can vary. Also the background and chat are two completely separate parts of the HUD. Though if I find something in the JSON files that can do that, I'll let you know!

I like it! It works great!
