Global chat is divided into ‘rooms’, messages sent this way are viewable to anyone in the same Chat as you, anywhere on the shard. To speak in global chat, in either client, precede your message with a comma (eg “,” “space” “hello”) or /c in enhanced client. To change to a different room, or create your own room you will need to open the chat menu. This is done from the top menu bar in classic client or from the chat icon on the default hotbar in enhanced client.
(if this bar is not visible open your paper doll and choose ‘options’, then ‘interface’ (mouse icon) uncheck the selection ‘disable menu bar’)
Clicking on ‘chat’ in classic client or the chat icon in enhanced client will open the gump pictured below allowing you to join, leave or create a channel. Click on the channel you wish to join, then click the ‘join’ button.
We COULD go ahead and add in the real UO chat system following tonight's restart.
By default players will be placed in the General chat. The client built in prefix of , will activate this client side chat. (already works just will not send messages)
This will allow you to join or leave a channel as you please.
However you will lose the option to see the last 50 messages in global chat, under the old system.
You can also already opt out of the current legacy chat system by saying [ChatToggle
