And you are sure you have changed channel into Direct chat? Remember that you need to change it every time you enter a server again.

Edit: Sorry the other way around (abit tired now in the morning). He tried to speak but you cant hear him?

Also do you mean text or voice? Anyway you need to be close for others to hear and read what you say.

Yea u need to be close to other people for them to see your/their text. You can't text someone in Stary if u are in Electro for example.

No in the text. I can voice chat. I can also send text in direct text and my friend saw it. But when anyone else chats i cant see it.
