Unable to write in new chatbox


Recommended Posts

So when I play sometimes people see me use my chatstyle and they ask me how to do it. Well... I know how I did it but, sometimes people and myself run into the issue where... the /cg_newchatbox is ticked on and the /bind [key] messagemodeall is done but; the person can't type anything in.


I've had it happen to me before and someone I'm helping is having the same issue. I couldn't remember if it was a .cfg issue or you just need to restart your game...?


He's got the latest JA++, the chatstyle, and a three month old OpenJK for windows which... that's cool because, I too am waiting awhile on the next release. :P How do you fix the problem where you can bring up the box but, you can't write anything in? I know it was simple but... I just can't remember it! Thanks in advance.

I haven't heard of this happening. Is there nothing in the console when you press a key?

Does it happen with no JPLua plugins installed/enabled? Try cg_jplua 0; lua_reload to make sure

It sounds like an issue with windows IME input / multiple languages / non-US keyboard layout.

Let me know whatever you find and I'll get it fixed :o


I'm pretty sure it at-least requires a version of OpenJK from ~mid 2014 onwards.

Well, I'm pretty sure everything for him was set to default. Like I see orange in his name so, I know he has OpenJK. I can try to tell him to take out the chatstyle thing temporarily and do those commands to see where the problem might be. Since I'm in a Euro clan now, it's most likely the latter issue. If it's the fact that it's more of the issue you described...

If it's that then, what could he do? It'd only take a couple of minutes to test the first one so, I'm going to go ahead and assume it's the other one.
