message log - enter a direction lines needed?

I can see potential use for the following lines for debugging, but consider if they are required for the normal user looking at messages, I don't see much benefit to know how many times I ran in a row or shot arrows at an enemy.
Entering targetting mode (x2)        <- also this one looks like the olde English spelling as well
Enter a direction (x2)
Entering manual targeting mode
Exiting targeting mode

Re: message log - enter a direction lines needed?

I was thinking of having a second message box, off to the right for temporary "status" messages, such as the ones above.  There is a lot of unused space on the right of the message box.

Makes sense to me as well.  However will it clear when the temporary status is cleared. Or give a completion message to the message
Entering targeting mode
Target acquired.

To prevent confusion for someone to think they may still be in targeting mode or such.

Yes, the message box would hold only one message, and would clear when the message is no longer relevant.

It wouldn't be stored like the normal message log, either.
