Over the years i have not seen anything improve with this feature of the game..It's useless really..it's interface is annoying most definetely not user friendly. Is there a mod to delete it?... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif..Yes i said the "M" word....Seriously tho ya have to agree when ya pull up this chat within the game ya got a series of numbers from 1-0, that has past messages there and if you happen to type a character from a past message then that whole message gets inserted in the box regardless if you dont want that message. You cant hit the backspace button, you gotta keep hitting the button to delete each letter just to get back to a blinking cursor to start typing your correct message...Sometimes ppl are not using TS and in the heat of battle this chat box is like using smoke signals to communicate......Yes i'm ranting ok, but geeeees http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Make sure you're always on TS and forget about reading the chatbox

When you want to empty the chatbox quickly...hit Esc. Open it up again and it's ready for new typing.
I admit it's not always handy. Start typing with a number and you get the corresponding pre-typed text...and sometimes you just don't need that, especially with a guy closing in on your six. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I use voice command software, and TS when I play online. I think there is a setting in the config file somewhere but never bothered myself.

If you don't want to send a preset message (stored by one of numbers 0-9) and start your message with number, then put a space before you start typing. I actually do it always, instinctively.

Sure, you probably pulled up your regular "all 25lbs spit drivers are sissyboys" message from the store by mistake, when flying a... 25lbs spit in incognito?? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Seriously, the chat is old, but for example it is quite useful to give commands to intelligent server controllers, get your stats, vote for map, validate your callsigns etc. You can't talk to the server controller softwares over TS http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
