    I can't seem to get either of these to work. Is there some trick?

    I can invite someone to be my friend. And they can invite me. But if I Accept it just sends them another friend request and never adds anyone to my friends list. Wtf? Oh, not being able to add someone as a friend during a game? Like, when you're most likely to want to do it. What's that about? Why couldn't they just include irc...

    & the only way I can send a message is to send a friend request & include the message in that! Rubbish.

    Delete the messages file in your SaveData directory. Not sure of the exact file name (not at home PC atm), but you'll see what I'm talking about.

    You have to send a friend messages multiple times before it works.

    I wish I was allowed to reply to a message instead of having to hit "Ok".

    Yeah, thanks for telling me and not letting me respond.

    A friend invite means you allow the other one to add you to his list. If you want to have him in the list, he must send you one too (UT3 automatically opens a new invite, but unfortunately MANY people don't send it).

    You can invite people ingame. Press esc and switch to the scoreboard tab. Select the player and then you either have a new button add friend or you need to rightclick - forgot which one.

    If you send a friend request and he accepts, then he'll be prompted with another friend request toward you which HE MUST SEND, or else you won't be on each other's lists. They were trying to go for a mutual agreement, but they didn't make a stopping point once they mutually agreed. :hmm:

    Other than that, I've had no problems with the friend lists.
