Hi guys,

Was flying online with no probs until today.
For some reason (I suspect due to inadvertently pressing some key(s)) I cannot read/display any chat messages.
I am able to open the text send box (via standard "^?" key) and send a message all onlone can read.
However i no longer get on top of my screen displayed my own or any other sent messages!

Anybody any idea (short of reinstalling)

HI,

Is it becuase your message box is all the way to the top of the screen?

If it is you can use the mouse to try and drag it back down. Its the same as resizing windows. Just turn the cursor to two arrows and drag and drop!!

If its not then I don't know what to suggest

How to fix the chat window:
Look in your FB main folder and open "conf.ini" in "notepad" or any text editor. Locate this section in the file:

[chat]
region=(dx=0.796875,dy=0.14192708,x=0.0,y=0.0)

Change yours to read like mine above, save the file. Go fly FB and then resize yours to your liking.
