Global Chat handle

Post by Sord » Tue Apr 24, 2007 11:28 pm

Since we may be spread out across a couple servers (or maybe just me) and want to keep in touch with folks while in game, post your global chat handle here.

@Deac is mine.

How do I know what my global chat handle is? Is it just the toon that I am using?

If so, that would be @Morbid Curiousity

Its usually the name of the very first character you create on the account.

There is a way to change it but I can't remember it off hand. There is a CoH wiki called something like paragonwiki.com that you can try for info.

When you log in, watch your upper chat box, it will usually say something like "entering global chat with @name"

Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen it's true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"...

...and I'll look down, and whisper "no."

You can also check your Global Chat handle by going to the Menu, then selecting Chat Handle (towards the bottom)

I never understood how to use Global friends before, and I still don't know now.

WTF Airy isn't in an SG anymore. :(

THERE WILL BE HELL TO PAY WHEN I FIND OUT WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS TRAVESTY.

Going through my old friends list makes me really nostalgic. I wish I couldI've at least hung out with Kari once IRL before she disappeared into the void of cyberspace.

It just allows you to chat across servers. It would also serve the purpose of letting someone know if you made a new alt. You show up on the global friends list as your chat handle and off to the side your in game name and server show up. I'm sure there is a way to remain anonymous if you like, I just don't know how at the moment :) I think you can just turn off global chat somehow and you won't show up on anyone's list.

One thing I hate about global chat is I can't seem to reply using the "/r" command. I have to type out the whole thing, /tell @Appleseed, hey what up? every time or right click your name and select "chat" from the global friends list. Maybe there is an option I'm missing or their chat interface is just retarded. I would say its the latter :P

If I recall correctly, last night my global chat came up as @Atomic Bunny. Not the first character I ever made by a longshot, but maybe the first one made since reactivation? In any case, I've never used global chat so maybe I'll get around to changing it or maybe I won't. :smile:

I sent all of you global chat friend requests *i think*, the chat system is kinda cumbersome isn't it?

Very clunky. The auto run when you hold down the mouse button is a huge pain in the ass too. If anybody figures out how to turn that feature off, please post how because I couldn't figure it out last night.

So mine is definitely @Mhya

It was something random previously because I made a test toon quickly to stop the blaring ear drum pain from the sound.

Waits helped me change it to Mhya though :D
