    Hi there,

    I was paged on as the user presumed I was un-attended. I was not un-attended (well my wife often asks if I am "all there" which is questionable at best, the point being I was looking at the screen) and so I saw a GM message come up asking me what I was doing. I didn't know how to respond in the GM channel or whatever so I just typed in game. I was never jailed so I presume this was OK. However, if there is a specific way to respond to a GM I'd like to do it.

    Any thoughts?

    In the EC client you can type /gm then space and it'll get you in the right channel.

    Theres a key in 2d for it too but I can't remember it. :(

    ya, that looks right, but can't say for sure. i paged a GM to help me with something few months back and ran into the same issue - he kept sending messages and i was just staring at my keyboard in a panic trying to figure out how to reply and finally i typed normally "i have no idea how to reply to you!!!" whereupon i got another message telling me which key to press first lol... so i think typing normally is ok, it just doesn't allow you the privacy that GM speak does.

    Usually they stand near you invisible and see what you type in public.
    In case you got GM chat session, you'll have welcome tip message to use [

    It is the "[" button from what I recall as was stated earlier. If you speak using normal chat they will see it. When a GM first comes to you there will be a message that explains how to chat with them. If you had been quick enough to read it then you would have seen the instructions, but in the future.. just look at your journal.

    for me, i was so surprised to actually get a GM chatting with me that i'm guessing i missed his initial message with instructions - i sort of instantly went into panic mode trying to figure out how to reply lol...

    they see your public text.

    i paged one cause my char was bugged with -16 physical resist with no spells active...i had to get naked :(
    Thank god i was at my own house.

    These days you can't actualy see GM like back in the old days.
    It's rare to get one that actualy talks instead of sending you the knowledge base link. (chances you'll find an answer on the knowledge base site is very small)
