Full-time RLV (FTRLV)

From Kokua 6.1.0 we are issuing a third installer named FTRLV (Full Time RLV). As the name suggests, this version lacks the ability to disable RLV and is more in line with Marine’s current policy (as of version This version differs from our normal RLV version in these ways:-

  • RLV is always on. The RestrainedLove debug setting is ignored

  • The RLV blacklist is always treated as being empty

  • The login blinding effect is always active, the debug setting that usually controls it is ignored

  • The Advanced Menu item to enable/disable RLV is faded out and unusable

  • OOC handling becomes more similar to Marine’s RLV. It can be routed to normal chat or to redirected chat processors (the default) depending on the debug setting KokuaRLVOOCChatIsRedirected. If this is set to False, OOC chat will go to normal chat and will always be squashed to “…” (ie this gives people who really don’t want OOC a way to always have it prevented)

  • The RLV area of the Preferences/Kokua/General panel is blanked

  • The Help>About Kokua information will show FTRLV rather than RLV (although the easiest way to quickly distinguish between RLV/FTRLV is look in the Advanced Menu or the Preferences/General/Kokua panel
