Many thanks for creating it, our players also seem to like it alot!
2 things which might be worth mentioning;

  • the chat doesnt seem to recognize Öö,Ää,Üü correctly
  • a scaling option beside/inside the config would be a blessing :slight_smile:
    Cheers, have a good day!

I have already seen your awesome work ingame,thanks for making this.
This change might seem small,but it makes chat so much more readable and people in the server were actually having conversations(rather than the usuall “this guy is a n00b hacker” spam than goes on in most bf3 server chats in vanila)

A config setting to choose the colours for yourself would be awesome?
