UBI's search function is 100% useless so sorry if this has been answered in the past.

Is it possible to remove all text from the HUD, including server messages (top left) and the Connection and Voice Comms icons (top right)?

Also, in light of recent developments regarding the malicious exploitation of the eventlog.lst would it be possible to have this feature, and any other features which may be exploited in a similar manner, disabled or at the very least controlled by the server?

Exploit the Exploiters

Send one member of onwhine Team go toggling smoke/lights or gunner seats far from main route (diversion), let the Cheaters go after that one sacrificial member, and the rest silently go after Cheaters' undefended home base or war target. This is like how real life WAR works.

For the main strike group...

(1) Don't switch gunner seats until in combat (if any combat, as the Cheaters will all be on the other side of map chasing the Toggling diversion member).

(2) Don't use wingtip smoke or lights to form up, use comms and map grid -- more realistic anyway so...

To remove the text, set these parameters in the conf.ini:

NoSubTitles=1
NoChatter=1
NoHudLog=1

For speedbar, you can toggle it to not show. Set a key in the controls menu for it.

For the server messages at top left, just resize your chat box window all the way up and it won't show. Click on the the box and put the mouse on the bottom edge to resize.

The connection icon on top right cannot be removed to my knowledge. The comms icon will go away if you disable ingame comms in the settings menu.

Don't know the issue with the eventlog. Is that bad?
