Chat Box Guide

From TalonRO Wiki

Main chat window

Here you'll see the main chat window. There are 6 different buttons.

  1. A button to enable/disable your chat input box.
  2. Chat option select. Use this to enable or disable certain messages in your chat box (see below).
  3. With this button, you can detach the selected tab from the chat window. This way you can drag it around where you like.
  4. With this button, you can add a new tab (see below).
  5. With this button, you can remove a certain tab from your chat window.
  6. This button allows you to lock your current tabs. That way you can't accidentally move them around.


Creating a new tab

Now, if you want to create a new tab, click the "+" icon. As you see, a new tab will be created.


Creating a new tab

Now you want to give it a name. Just make sure the tab is selected, then double click on the name.


Renaming your new tab

Now just type a new name and press Enter.


Setting chat options

To decide on what you want to show in the new tab, click on the small circle icon (the second icon). A new window will open with various options.

As you see, all of them will be set to OFF (unless you already enabled some).


Setting chat options #2

To enable a certain option, just click a certain option in the list and the OFF will turn into an ON. You can also click the "all on" option and it will enable all options.


What to do if you don't see your chats

Let's say you can't see your general chats or just nothing except whispers, GM messages and so on. Check out if you have /notalkmsg or /notalkmsg2 enabled or not.

Type Alt+Y to enable a window like this:


Just disable them if you can't see them anymore.

/notalkmsg or /nm - general chats will not be shown in your chatbox only whispers, party chat, gm announcement and guild chats are allowed.

/notalkmsg2 or /nm2 – same function as /notalkmsg (/nm) but this time even guild chat is blocked.

You can also type the commands in your chat window and enable/disable them.

How to PM a Player / Market / Main Chat / Allies

You type the person's name in the small box to the left of the place where you usually type. It's the same case with Market or Main or Ally Chat.

NOTE: Ally Chat is disbaled in War Of Emperium! (Also currently disabled till further notice!)

Apart from this method, you can use the code:

!main Hello World

With this, the phrase Hello World will be displayed on main.

For !market chat, !market B> Balls or !market S> Balls

The above two examples will display on market chat, you wanting to either Buy or Sell afore-mentioned balls.

You must also make note that sometimes, your !main or !market may be switched off. Or you may have /exall by mistake.

For these situations, do the following if there are any discrepancies:

  • !main on
  • !market on
  • /inall

Is there a GM online?

There are numerous times a player needs a GM. Well, there is a very easy way to go about it. Use !request.

!request GM, some one is selling Balls. Is that okay?

This is like a PM to any and all GMs online at the moment. If they read it, they will reply as soon as possible.

Do realise, that most of the times, your fellow players CAN solve your difficulties. The server has been on for a long time, players have heard and seen problems get solved on !main before. Whatever you are facing, has most likely already been handled by someone - be it a quest, or donation, etc. So always try and ask your friends on main for help before asking the GM!
