cough you could use scenevr to host your authoritive scripts and communicate to them with high fidelity.

Is there a good way for an Interface script to communicate with an entity script? Or a Stack Manager script?

@huffman had a solution

There's no good way, but the way I've done it before is to communicate via entity properties
so, setting the userData on an entity, and an AC script reading it
But, depending on the use-case, that may not be a viable solution
Especially because that has spatial limitations

np... What are you trying to do?

Cunning, but unfortunately not sufficient for what I'd like to be able to do.
Was thinking about implementing a local chat solution as an interim stop-gap measure.

for nearby users?
Another option for arbitrary communication is to use a separate http server that the AC and client-side scripts communicate with

Yes, for nearby users.
Yeah, I could set up a Web service but was hoping I could avoid that.
At least I know I'm not missing seeing some hidden HF script ability.

How did you want to display chat messages?

I could update my vrChat.js script to display 2D as well as in VR. (vrChat.js had message history plus input box like the old default chat window but displayed using 3D overlays while in VR. Had also started working on presence display, i.e., clickable avatar names in list above.)

I think you could use the entity method, but it would take a fair bit of work to get it to work reliably, and would be a huge hack

Yeah, not really a good solution.

What we need is a way for a user to click on an entity and get sent in a private manner, a password for their access to an external site, like for verification of who you say you are, think of kiosks in SL being used to log into websites such as kittycats

Same warning in IE ... Looks like HiFi's Web site has moved to highfidelity.com (redirects if you have http:// instead of https:..) and there's no longer a valid SSL certificate on highfidelity.io

@judasshuffle all requests to highfidelity.io should be now redirected to .com and the certificate that is now valid and in place is the .com one
what url did you try to access?
@ctrlaltdavid you as well please?
ahh ok I think I got a repro, fixing

fixed, one of the possible redirect "combinations" wasn't properly redirecting before hitting the ssl virtualhost

@murillodigital Yes, it looks fixed from my end
