This puts the chat text up top similar to how it was in JK2. This is MUCH better than how it is currently because chat text tends to get in your way while playing.
Type "cg_chatboxheight 60" & that should do it (I believe 350 is the default if you do not like it). The "cg_chatbox" cvar sets the amount of time text is to be displayed.
Another tip that I personally find useful is setting the "cg_fov" cvar to 120 (default is 80). This sets the third person camera back a bit more so you can see more area, now this does take some getting used to but is well worth it in my opinion.
Hope you guys enjoy these tips as much as I do, - Marker0077

Thx Marker0077, why not make this ticky ?
I don't work here anymore man. I know almost everyone on FN & GF staff & could make it happen but TBH, I don't care anymore. ShroomDuck doesn't care about anything but getting juvenile jollies off of firing me to settle a petty dispute between him & I, so you guys are the ones who have to suffer for it. I could have possibly got my position back but I know PF is against it now & it would have caused problems for some of my friends & it's just not worth it to me, especially not until CM is released. Once that happens, things are going to change around here in a variety of ways. ;-)
TBH, I'm enjoying not being staff anymore. I don't have to be polite if I don't want to be & I have more free time to work with people who actually value what I give to them.
Anyways, this chat text up top thing is something I will cover in the CM manual.
I pretend I'm cooler than AzH

I tried the cg_fow, max was 100. no change when putting in 120 or higher... is that possible?
Ya it has to be disallowed at some point. cg_fov is what is used for sniping in with sniper rifles, without disallowing it at some point you could snipe with any weapon.
