Chatroom?

    Is there a chatroom in the new client? Someone from 2d sent me a msg in-game. At first it freaked me out, but when I found out what it was, I realized I didn't see that feature in the new client.

    Even if the chat is not there, is there a way to respond to messages?
     
  2. You can do this from KR, but not sure you can in the new client. I can't remember how you respond to a message like that. First time I saw that, I too wondered who it was and how they knew I just logged in!

    Stratics needs a list of these commands (Or maybe the playguide will.. but based on the 2d playguide a lot of commands aren't posted on uo.com)

    I was hoping nobody would notice that I didn't have an answer for that - I've never started a conversation, only responded.

    /a alliance
    /e emote
    /g guild
    /p party
    /r reply (responds back to the person who last messaged you)
    /s say (return to normal speech)
    /t tell (not sure how to specify who)
    /w whisper (not sure how to specify who)
    /y yell

    Follow the command with a space and then your message - everything except /r changes the default mode of your speech - so once you are talking to your guild you will remain only talking to your guild until you use /s (and a space) to switch back.

    (although I found this by trial and error, there are a list of hints if you left-click on the swirly at the bottom of the chat window)

    Unfortunately I haven't guessed the syntax to specify a specific person with the tell and whisper.

    Perhaps /tell name12345 or whatever the person's code # is? Otherwise if you sent /tell Bob , UO wouldn't know which Bob. Unfortunately, SA (enhanced) doesn't give us what the codes are.

    I kind of thought that as well and was going to try various target states.

    I tried all combos of /tell but not working
    Someone in 2D can type in "chat" and I see it in purple on SA, and I can hit /r to reply. I see their code# and name! They don't see what i'm typing. I can't get to "chat" in SA.
    /tell <code>name message
    That should be the way to do it, but not working. Just says
    [Hildebrand]: (To "") <code>name message
    No such player ".

    Have we every gotten a response from the Devs about how to send tells to others? Is it even finished?

    Oops, if I hit /r , then they DO see me chatting
    /t also acts as /tell and just as broken.
    I miss the "friends" list that KR had. I liked adding people to it.

    Yeah it seems to be reporting an empty parameter in terms of the To. I tried a lot of common parm notations and couldn't get anything to wiggle.

    Such that it seemed to take everything after the /tell as the message itself.

    I didn't try chat in the 2D I will give it a try.

    What they did is find me on the chat channel on 2D and then sent me the message.

    Whisper speaks normally (not through a channel) but is only heard by other players within a one-tile radius. NPCs & followers, however, can hear whisper anywhere.. which allows you to dress up pet commands, buy/sell/bank etc..

    A pet macro with whisper:

    say > "Come hither, my pet" (players only see this)
    whisper > "all follow me" (what the pet responds to)

    That's a nice way of using it Fink. I like that.
    But last I tried whisper, it was acting like a /tell.
