Multiplayer : Select Chat Window
Hi Everyone,

I tried MP last night and really enjoyed it.
I'm playing on my TV with XBox 360 controller, but have keyboard next to me.
Unfortunatly I was unable to select chat window to actually type something in it.
Is there any shortcut to focus on this window ? How do you actually select it to start typiing ?

On another note, I find the mouse was mandatory to scroll in player list / results etc (with controller, the scroll bar do not follow the list.)

Thanks !

Would seem to me, we need a key we can use to make chat window active when in the lobby. Like show this at bottom of lobby page:

You use a pad Race? How get pad to tab around Wreckfest?
Thanks for your answers !

That's right I "don't" have a mouse. Actually I got one, but once I move it, I do not get the pointer. However, I can see the area where the pointer is supposed to be highlighted. So I desperatly tried to highlight the chat area but with no success :(

@purple, that ! I think I miss some "shortcut" on the pad .

For now, on main menu screen I can use shoulder buttons to navigate between tabs (garage, options,etc).

But on a list (opponent for example), I can't find the way to scroll in the list (in fact, the highlited element on the list move, but once i'm at the last displayed item, the list do not scroll below, and thus I can see the end of the list)

Same stuff for the screen with chat box. I can't switch between opponent list "Box" and chat "box".

I'm not sure I'm really clear here, but anyway, thanks for your help !
Ok I get it. My main problem is that I can't display the mouse pointer. It appears if I setup the game in "Windowed Mode" but in full screen it is invisible..
So at this point, here is my fix :) :
Once I finish the race I press "alt + Enter" to enter in windowed mode. I can then see the pointer, and click on the chat. Then I press "alt - Enter" again to reenter full screen , and i'm then able to type in chat :steamfacepalm:
