Manual Installation

    (default: C:\Program Files (x86)\Bethesda.net
    Navigate to your Fallout 76 settings folder in "My Games" (default: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\My Games\Fallout 76)
    If this is your first mod, extract the optional "Fallout76Custom.ini" file to
    the current directory.  Otherwise, append the name of the new archive,
    "ChatMod.ba2", to the list, separated by a comma, like so:

sResourceArchive2List = ChatMod.ba2

To activate chat press the INSERT key, this will open the chat entry box.  You'll be able to type as you would expect and of course pressing enter will send your message.

If you want to re-bind the key that opens the chat window, replace "chatKey=INSERT" in the configuration file (chatmod.ini) with either: any printable character, or INSERT, DELETE, HOME, END.

  • Is this mod allowed?  Please refer to Bethesda's article on mods: https://help.bethesda.net/app/answers/detail/a_id/44429/kw/mod
  • Is this mod safe to use?  Beyond the virus scan, if you have any concerns,
  • feel free to open the SWF file and view the source code. This can be done with a tool called JPEXS Flash Decompiler.

Additional Notes
  • This mod is a work in progress, and while I will make a reasonable effort to ensure there are no bugs, some users may occasionally run into them.  There are no guarantees regarding stability or crashes with the server or client.
  • This mod is only functional because of the use of a third party server.  The only information that is sent to the server is, nearby players, your name (the one visible to everyone), and your message.  None of this information is stored.  Player clients do not interact with one another, all communication happens with the server, the server then relays the message to the appropriate players.
