In the chatbox ingame, i can only see a single line of a sentence from a player, and it cuts off after 45 letters or so.

I have tried it with the app as well, same problem, single line of chat, cuts off after 45 letters. Kinda hard talking and understanding when i'm only getting half the conversation.

Anyone else have this problem?

Oh forgot to mention, I play vikings too and there is no problem with that games chat.

This is the single biggest failure / impediment to the game - getting / teaching / showing new players how to expand the chat window to something useful.


I can't speak to phone, but on browser, double-click within the text of the chat box and a larger box will open up. (Making the facility useful, finally.)


Note that occasionally things can be buggy or cranky - sometimes I have to triple-click, or double-click multiple times, before it happens.


PITA!

Thanks, that's a lot better. Still a bit miffed you can't move it to the side and resize it, make it opaque and be able to click past it without it minimizing again, but I can live with it.

I play on an Android tablet and at the bottom of the game screen there are two lines of chat which when clicked open up to full screen. Trouble is although all the players names are shown some messages are not. The ones not showing are all from players who have changed the colour of their nickname. I also have an account on a PC and there is no problem there. Anyone know of a fix for this?

Thankyou thankyou thankyou WWO


Now, is there some way to see what processes are happening in the Order Citadel in Windows version? I feel sure we are doing things there but I have no idea what.

I had answered this, but the Plarium software ate it.


In essence: No. There are no other processes to see. Rule of thumb: if you don't see a '7' beside order citadel, investigate for what's missing. [8 if you have enough citadel rss to be building something at the time.]


Note that Citadel processes are not the same as Order Store activity. See Order Store / Order purchase history for that.


Same for Citadel Resource Warehouse / Contributions for that.
