printMessage only displaying in console

Whenever I use something like lua_run PrintMessage( HUD_PRINTTALK, “You’re not verified…” ) it only shows up in console for some reason, any idea why this would be?

Works for me:

For me it doesn’t print to the console though, despite the wiki claiming it does.

Could it be my chat-box interfering?

Yeah it was the chat box, any idea why?

your problem could be your not defining who its printing to, if you code is literally


PrintMessage( HUD_PRINTTALK, "You're not verified..." )

thats only going to print in console
try sending it to the player like


ply:PrintMessage(HUD_PRINTTALK, "You're Not Verified....")

obviously make sure this line is run by something but yes notice the


ply:

at the beginning?
its sending it to the player

There’s a global function -

Global.PrintMessage - which applies to all players at once. His code should be working, as I already demonstrated.

What do you mean the chat box? Do you have a custom chat box?

I’m using https://scriptfodder.com/scripts/view/14 off scriptfodder as a chat box.

I understand that to send it to one player I use ply:PrintMessage in the script & it only prints to console.

there shouldnt be any problem with that chatbox, i use that chatbox aswell!

Yeah it’s definitely the chatbox

are you using a leaked version or did you actually buy it?

I actually bought it

then contact the developer who made it
