I know it's a little old now but I'm wondering if the chat function has been disabled in v.1.11? All I get is a small box w/ the numbers 8 and 9 whenever i push the chat button. I can adjust the box horizonally and move the box about but that's it, the other adjustments don't seem to work. I cannot enlarge to see the top (or beginning) of the dialog box. I cannot type anything also (maybe cos I can't see the top of dialog box?) Is it just me or is everyone else also having this happen to them?

I've had this problem before. To tell you the truth, I couldn't fix it short of reloading the game. Don't know if that's the best solution, but it does work.

Note: if you take this route, make a note of your slider settings and save files you don't want lost.

Same happened to me. I posted the question in the tech forum and someone helped me with instructions to change a couple of items in config. Can't remember what I did to fix it though. You might want to post that question in the tech forum. Hopefully you can get an answer over there before you re-install the game. Good Luck. S!

In conf.ini file (in your game directory) find the section that includes the following two lines:

[chat]
regionhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gifdx=0.75,dy=0.15,x=0.0,y=0.0)


Make sure the x & y values are 0 to put the chat window at the top left corner of the screen. Then in game, once you open the chat window you can drag the right and bottom window edges to resize it to suit yourself.

And i have seen games where I thought I had 'chat lag'.

Turned out that I had managed to grab the scroll bar, so latest two or three messages were hidden /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Felt a right charlie when I discovered that.

The chat bar is resizable, dragable and scrollable via the mouse. That is the source of "no chat bar" and "chat lag". All you have to do to resize the chat bar is drag one of the edges. To scroll click the top or bottom half of the text. Same works with the map. The map can be dragged to anywhere on the screen by grabbing one of the edges. Not sure if it can be resized but it probebly can.

At the start of WW2 the German army lacked experienced anti-aircraft gunners. The average gunner was so bad that the USSR decided to help them out. They did it by forcing some of their pilots to fly I-153 flak magnets. These planes were slow but very sturdy. This allowed German anti-aircraft gunners to get a large amount of target practice on a relatively small number of planes. Thanks to the Soviets help, by the end of the war the German anti-aircraft gunners were amoung the best in the world.</center>
