What is Chat Assistant?
Chat Assistant is also known as
Chat Assistant is a small FREE addon to the Windows version of the free
Online Bridge Playing program that you can download from BBO (Bridge
Base Online). Look for the link that follows the text - Looking for our
downloadable Windows program?
For the ChatAssistant download link see the left hand column on this
When ChatAssistant first starts and the BBO application is not running, then
it will look like (depending on your system and settings) the following -
once the BBO application has started, ChatAssistant will change and now move
and shrink and look something like -
What you will notice now is that ChatAssistant has no large title bar as part
of its window. This is to save space, to keep it small, so you can see as much
of BBO's bridge playing area as possible.
If you click the minimal button, ChatAssistant will shrink to its smallest
possible size - its 'minimal' size - and look like this
ChatAssistant takes over the job of the normal BBO Chat Box giving new features
and greater ease of use. ChatAssistant does not alter the BBO program in any
way. Think of ChatAssistant as being like a bike rack for your car. It's not
part of the vehicle and it doesn't even come from the same manufacturer but
once added to your vehicle it adds functionality and in time you come to think
of the combination as being 'your car'.
When you need it, it will expand to the normal BBO Chat Box size shown earlier
