Please oh please dear god Oleg make the chat box and the announcements window separate. It is so annoying to type in a message, only to have it disappear as soon as you hit enter because the message box gets flooded with "RED HAS 7/10 PLANES/PILOTS LEFT" or whatever. Also, make the chat box nearer the center of the screen and longer, so you can actually read messages when they come in.

I belive you can edit the chat box size, so you can have multiple lines, and have it longer.

Yes, to make it bigger, open the chat box and drag the edges with the mouse to make it bigger.
I had someone have to tell me to find out about it! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

I know you can do that, it's just really annoying to have to have it do that http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif Plus the chat text is freaking huge, it'd be nice if it was smaller.


For all the stuff that's lauded on IL-2's multiplayer, there's a lot of little things that aren't implemented well. The scoreboard, for instance, could use simplifying, and have it arranged via teams. It also could show the entire player list, not just the first 31 or so. It could also have actual kill counts vs death counts, and rather than having really high numbers (600 points for killing a fighter and surviving, and 300 for killing and dying? Why not just have it be 2 points, and 1 point for killing and dying?).

The multiplayer mission setup itself could use some polishing, such as an "Objectives" screen, maybe add some map pointers available to the "team leader", where they can put a marker on everyone's map where an objective is.

Actually, I find this not so good, cos then you have writing almost halfway down the screen. Now when you need to see ALL of the space about you, having it obscured by sometimes not-needed writing can affect your survival/kill ratio.

Making the font smaller too would certainly help.

I like your suggestions http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

BTW you can show more than 31 players online, map a key to <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">Next Ratings Page</span> right under <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">Online Rating</span> in the Controls Section. I use this all the time on full servers.

OPen the chat box and drag the corener bigger with the mouse. Make it about 6 lines, then you will never miss another message.
