GameTZ Chat Help
GameTZ's primary chat tool is a Java-base IRC client, PJIRC
. GameTZ's chat server support a subset of IRC commands.
You should also be able to use any other IRC client, like MIRC
. Connect to GameTZ.com on port 6667. If you have trouble using another IRC client, feel free report it to us (perhaps by posting in Site_Feedback
GameTZ also has an HTML-based chat (which uses frames and refreshes the page every 15 seconds), if that works better for you.PJIRC (Java) chat
Here are some tips for using our primary chat program.
o This is a multi-window chat. You can be in more than one channel at the same time, plus you can have private windows for whisper conversations.
o To switch between windows, user the bottom icons. These icons are divided between public and private.
o Use the [x] in the top right to close any window, closing a chat room will cause you to leave it. You can also right click the window icon and select close.
o You can click on any URL that comes up in the message screen.
o You can use various Emoticons
in chat like
o Type "/me verb-phrase" to perform an action. For example "/me is going to play games" will become "bill is going to play games" (assuming you're bill).
o Type "/msg username message" to send a whisper to someone.
o Better yet, click their username in the chat window (either on the side-list, or right in the message window) and it will create a new private window for you to have an isolated conversation with them.
o You can join (or create) a new channel by using typing "/join channel" or by using the Channels icon at the top, then double-clicking the channel you want.
o You can ignore a user in chat (so that it wont show their messages anymore), but using "/ignore username". Use "/unignore username" to un-ignore them.
o Hovering your mouse over a username will give you some quick stats on them (like if they have a good trader star).
o Right clicking a username will give you a menu of things you can do related to that user.
Private Window (the same as just clicking their username), gives you a private/whisper window
