I have accounts for my two kids. The eldest, age 7, has a laptop. The youngest, 5, has a PC that hosts a multiplayer LAN game. We can join no problem, I can use my own account no problem. However, on the 5-year-old's PC, he can't chat or see any chat at all. I've done exhaustive Googling and playing with the chat settings. Chat is on Shown.
However, chat is simply not showing up. We can use console commands and they work, but we get no system message. If I type something on the PC (5 y/o) account, the laptop can see it, but we (the speaker) cannot. It's as if chat works, but is invisible. I'm sure the kid has done something because I often find him playing in the settings. Does anyone have an idea how to get chat to show even if invisible?
