I repeated your test process. No problem, everything works fine on my computer. I am using Windows 10. It is a strange problem. Doug can correct me, but as far as I know the only difference in the chat window from 665 to 666 is the html.I've been trying some things. I don't think it has anything to do with compatibility with another player's set up or versions of VASSAL/VASL. Here's why. Launched VASSAL 3.6.17. Opened VASL 6.6.6. Selected option to start a new game offline, picked bd 1, Launched. All as expected, chat window scrolls the usual information about versions and extensions. Began a log. Typed 'Hi', pressed enter, doesn't appear in chat window, instead I get *... then my name, same problem as before. Quit. Opened VASL 6.6.5, same process, typed 'Hi', pressed enter, in chat window Hi appears then my name, as it should. Nothing here involves anyone else. 6.6.5 works fine (as did 6.6.4 which I tried too). 6.6.6 does not work fine. I'm baffled. Anybody got any ideas please?
Doesn't work for me sadly...Happens to me pretty regularly with log files (and I'm positive my opponents and I aren't all using the same VASSAL/VASL). A quick up-down scroll of the mouse wheel brings up the last line. A little annoying, beats the hell out of no ASL though.
Ok, so no go on the reinstall. Still have the issue.I am having the same issue. Can't see my own text nor my opponents. On VASL 6.6.6, VASSAL 3.6.17. Unloaded all extensions so that's not it.
I upgraded my VASL and VASSAL a week or two ago. My opponent did it tonight. I have an issue, he doesn't. Maybe I'll try reinstalling it all.
No, that's just where I was when I took the screen shot. It's in-game and out of game.FWIW, your screenshot is you trying to play a game while in the Main Room?
Not to say that you're not having a problem, but you'll probably want to be in a room other than Main Room to expect to see anything from anyone.
Okay, so problem solved it seems.Ok, so no go on the reinstall. Still have the issue.
If I go to preferences and toggle "Use Images for Dice Rolls" it appears to fix it. No idea why my opponent is having no issues and I am.
ETA: My opponent had that toggle checked. When he turns it off, he has the same problem. >.<
