Here's how to customize your different windows, remove or lower the cluttering and adding console to the chat window!

ALT+CLICK on the chat window and click "customize".

From the right window move Console input to the middle window. If you want output to do the same. Be warned that console output will clutter the window with lot's of information during play and it's not really needed.
Click save when done!

To move the window set Title to visible. Set it back to hidden when it's placed where you want it!

Make your chat window transparent and have text disappear:

In the middle window click on "window". you will see options coming up in the left screen.

For transparent transparency set inactive alpha BG to 0

To make text disappear after awhile change History to 40 and timeout [sec] to 30.

Keep border as "visible" if you want to be able to re-size window.

Also to remove the clock click on system time in the middle window and hide local and zulu time in the left window!

Remember to save

This is my settings for the chat window and you can see the transparent chat window. Not cluttering the screen



Here are my settings for the confuser.ini. Sets the controls lower right corner, Chat window lower left corner, Voice window upper middle with 3 lines only, Secondary control window middle left side.
This is for 1920x1200 resolution!!!

This is great info, thanks! I've bookmarked it for when I get the sim.

By the way, is it really called the "confuser.ini"? Sounds very close to confusing, which is kinda funny judging from all the posts about "how to get rid of these windows"

The window system is actually quite good. First i hate it but now that i got the hang of it i love it. I like it when I'm allowed to edit stuff to my liking smile

What is annoying is that it retains data from your last flight. So if you got a fuel leak in your last flight the message will still be there in the next mission. This is confusing as you sometimes aren't sure if it's a new message or not.

Edit the motor controls window and click on engine info. Set layout to digital in the left window.
