when I got on after the update I noticed that all the letters in the chat box are black and very hard to see. I checked my chat options and I see that my colorblind scheme is at 3342436_string_missin. does anyone else have this problem or is jus me?

yeah that's default setting.. just change to one of the other choices, and the text after the change you'll be able to read

im on xbox 360, the chat is dark purple and dark burgundy for zone chat and system and clan messages. it's the color blind scheme, it borked the whole chat system, you can't turn it off or on, it's stuck on the ON button.

ahhh, yeah I'm on PC, and still downloading .. but that was there in PTS, was how I knew about it, and there you can only use PC.

they may need a hotpatch for the PS3 . . may not been added there
Did you report it ?

360 player. Chat box is now unreadable unless your nose is touching the screen and have found no way to change this

Yep black and grey and dark purple in PC. Grey seems to be area chat. All un-readable.

So did the new patch even address the chat or was this a fubar moment again?

Now to see what else is broken, just switched it on.

well . . with PC there are 3 options for text color .. but what else is screwy, is the tabs are messed up, I had to redo my tabs and naming them.
for some reason the now default is just the system and error stuff only, so you won't see any chat, unless you're in one of the menus.

kinda hard to let/help others know in game, when they can not read chat, but can type in chat.

I'm also on the xbox360 and my chat is the same...sort of a semi-transparent Burgundy color that you can only read when looking at the sky (if the sun is out). I thought it was on my end so I erased EVERYTHING and reinstalled. Definitely not on my end. I believe it has to do with the Colorblind setting. It is set to HIGH and I don't have the option to change it.

I think that this patch is actually making me color blind. Played a bit this morning and my eyes were hurting bad.

Easy fix for PC.....

Use your mouse in the settings to click on the text color option. It will give you a dropdown box to change the color scheme. Using a xbox/game controller to try changing this option, will not work.
