This won't cause PBbans?

Profile config tweaks aren't bannable. They don't modify the game client they just provide information for the variables the options system uses, so no, no PB ban. Tweaks like this can also be used for absurdly weird resolutions and such as well.

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.

I am aware it didn't, I'm stating that DICE will get around to it eventually, especially now that the community has a fix for it.

I was asking if the tweak moves the chat box or resizes it, given the response from the scientist back there, I'm going to assume it just moves it.

Awesome, I'll definitely do that, is there a font size change as well per chance?

I was just confused because I can't tell the change besides the movement, I didn't know what the chat box was size-wise in the lower resolutions (I run 1920x1200)

Looking at the screenshot it looks excellent, but wouldn't it cover the ammo counter in HUD? Obviously not a worry for hardcore servers, but for regular matches I assume it would be unusable?

DICE must have known how easy this was to do. why didn't they let the community know???

DICE should let us make the choise to enable/disable that whole chat thing. It is REALLY annoying on servers where the console makes autoposts every 5 seconds. That chatbox takes up half the right corner of a screen

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,

GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaHeight 0.950000
GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaWidth 0.950000
The above is the normal setting for my res. which is 1920 x 1080
Now I 1st made a back up of my original file....and changed only the GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaHeight 0.950000 to GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaHeight 0.500000
which placed the chat box down to the right bottom of the screen....BUT it moved the Health/ammo and the mini map UP to the middle of the screen..not good.

I then tried the GstRender.ScreenSafeAreaWidth and it moved everything all over the place.....
So if you're gonna mess with those settings..make a BACK UP first or you may be screwed.

it's more a trick, and i use a command/parameter that relocate all the hud things,

Don't know, but i remember the bluetinted box issue on bfbc2 . i think the guy who's in charge is not a programmer. I'm kidding....no, i'm not
