Hello everyone. A recent update has introduced a chat based system which allows players to do a few of the most common things using their chat box.
You may have noticed the new chat option addition to the standard menu. This allows you to make all your chat text colorized, depending on if it is an emote or ooc text. The system uses the * symbol to recognize emotes and the // and (( brackets to denote ooc text. // is typically used when everything that follows is going to be OOC. Use (( and )) when you want ooc text in the middle of a sentence.
You can also lock the channel in whisper mode, to avoid making a mistake and spilling secrets in the normal chat mode.
The Auto Animations toggle button, allows your emote text to be filtered and potentially trigger an automatic emote, the keywords for these are listed below. These are not case sensitive.
Also, I've enabled the system to handle commands which are always identified with the > symbol, they are as follows. (also not case-sensitive)
