Yes, go to line 740 of the file "MissionEditor\modules\dialogs\mul_chat.dlg" and change the RGB numbers, that should do it.

Could you please double check that because line 740 says [1] = 0,

I would like to have all my chat text in white. Can that be done?

OK, I was looking at the unmodded file. In the chat enhancer version it's at line 679. Also the red text color is at line 788 and the yellow text color is at 1040. If you change all those numbers to 1.0, then all the chat text should be white.

Yeah they changed the chat box, I need to update the mod for it. If you're using the text enlarger, for now, you can delete the "MissionEditor" folder from the mod folder before installing it. That will enlarge the radio messages without modifying the chat box.
