Post by Burned Account -CNG- » Fri Mar 11, 2005 12:57 am

in the new 2.0.1b4 client i got from here .. the words that appear in white for 5 seconds will be left there, and other text will be there and scrunch it up.

also after 30-60 minutes when i use the chat options.. it will scrunch all the text on one line.
this happens when i switch them

I ran into that problem on one of the older versions. Does this only happen once, or has it happened on numerous occasions?

Use W and Q to close the text and radar windows, then hit both of them again to reopen. This somehow resets it. Then you can press on.

The problem comes from using the F1-F4 key to switch to the filter mode you're already in. For instance, if you are already in "chat" filtering, don't hit the "chat" key.

Yes, it's a bug, but you can easily reset it and work around it.

Thanks to Manu for some help with this one.

Ahhhh. That's right. I ran into that problem while sifting through chat when i changed to the "chat" section. When i returned to the "all" section, it bunched everything up. I think this option should be removed, or atleast fixed.
