chat died

Post by Scorch » Sat Mar 18, 2006 3:19 am

I can type but i can't see what anyone (including me) types. I got kicked once it said "server disconnected" as if the server died but i think it was a lag kick and i couldnt see the thing that said u got kicked! i did /part and it did the same thing with no message!

(don't delete this again!)

Do you have the wrong tab selected? (Always start with the obvious) :)

If it said "server disconnected" it's probably a known Windows server bug when there are too many connections (either flags or players). I've seen this myself, if you say anything you do not see what you say and you cannot see anyone else's chat. The second time you say something (or do anything else) you get a "server disconnected."

Can you spawn? Because if it is this bug you can't spawn either.

he says he can't see the text, he can join and play. it's not a win bug, he says it's a lag kick or something, but he can't se what it is...

But he just said it told him "server disconnected." Meaning he can see SOMETHING.

he's asking why he can't see other text, not why he's getting kicked...

Did you have the console up (via W)? That's another simple thing :P
BTW, even if you don't have the console up, chat messages will appear on the top of the screen.

Maybe, you used the PgUp and PgDown Keys to scroll in the Chat/Event History and you didn't scroll back.

Make sure, you're in the right tab, you can change with Shift + F1 -F4
