note: default values between 0.85 and 1
if u want restore open your menu and select the option "screen adjust monitor" and move the arrows

in my documents\battlefield 3\settings

open PROF_SAVE_profile with notepad++

change these values

GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaHeight 0.048000
GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaWidth 1.030000

theses are for 1280x768 res

i ll update for the others res later

Meanwhile u can do it yourself using GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaHeight


- For 1280x720 res :

GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaHeight 0.130000
GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaWidth 1.030000


i cant do for all resolutions because i have a 16:9

but the thing for configure is :

the more the chatbox is up : lower the GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaHeight

if the chatbox is way to down: raise the GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaHeight


note that some informations will missed like the hud on the right
or when u are typing

and also some info like data icons, map, kill messages

So it's not recommended for regular mode which use the ammo-life HUD. It's just that as i'm on low res , this chat box is way too big, so i prefer that and i play HC

Anyone have values for 1920x1080 res?

i wouldnt do it for such resolutions in this way
try more expand on the corners like this

GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaHeight 1.30000 kind of
GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaWidth 1.10000


Because its more a compromise than a real fix

As i said some other info will moved too

Wait is this height/width of it or location?

Also lol@ the morons bitching that DICE hasn't fixed this, seriously? They'd have to add in a menu option for it, it'll get done eventually. A tweak to a config file isn't the same as adding in new UI options. But now that we've found a fix we can easily wait for them to get around to it. There's more important things to fix.

Gee thanks, because I'm supposed to know how big the chat box is on a 1280 resolution right? Because I obviously use that resolution correct?

I have no idea where the chat box is on those resolutions, everyone always whines about them blocking view, and the text itself says height/width. I asked a simple question related to where its positioned compared to what the tweak does. Learn some manners please.

Also for these kids who have never programmed a line of code in their lives, I love the vulgarity of your statements, you obviously know how this all works and how to fix it. I don't see you out there doing anything about it. I'm not "sucking DICE's sack", I'm telling you how it is. If you don't like it you can leave, all your whining and bitching does nothing to solve the problems, the OP has a solution that fixes it until DICE can fix it themselves later.

God I hate this generation of children.
