It titles it The Hidden Blade Chat Room but all I get is the small 'x' that marks an unloaded or broken load screen. Anyone else having trouble with this or is it just me?

Greyjeth said he was also having problems getting in. Maybe ParaChat doesn't like Californians. Tongue

Seriously, I don't know much about the required browser plug-ins for chat. Can someone help lilk and Greyjeth?

As far as I know, only the basic Java plugin is needed for Parachat. I've never had any problems signing in myself.

This is correct.

For those of you having trouble, go to www.java.com and download and install the latest version. It automatically detects most operating systems, so it will often just give you a direct downlad link.

If this doesn't fix the issue, you might be using an old or incompatible web browser. If possible, install the latest Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Ok, I was having trouble with Firefox...I completely uninstalled it and reinstalled and now I can get in chat. I haven't tried IE8 to see if it's working there. Frankly I really don't care...lol Thanks for the help guys..I do think my Java was outdated though.

Is there a way to have chat pop in a separate window? I have to open a new window and relog to THB if I want them both. I know, I'm picky (sticks tongue out at stab back Tongue)

Hold the Shift key when you click on Chat. Wink
