Chat with the Audience

The chat window is normally positioned at the right-hand side of the stage and is available to both players and audience to chat in. Players can hide or expose the chat from the Settings tool.

At the bottom of the chat window is a text input field, and just above it are icons for reaction emoticons that will appear along the bottom of the stage. The reaction emoticons are available to both audience and players, and when clicked on by anyone, they are seen by everyone.

Chat as a player

When a player types in the input field, their text will appear in the chat window preceeded by their player username. If the player is holding an avatar, the text will appear in the chat window preceeded by the name of the avatar, and will also appear on stage as a speech bubble and be spoken in the avatar's text2speech voice. See the chapter on Avatar Speech and Voices for more information.

Use the round green button at the right of the text input field to add emoticons to your chat text.

Customise the chat window

Settings to locally customise the chat window are available to both players and audience. Minise the chat window by clicking the - icon at the top of the window. Increase or decrease the font size with the + and - icons above the text input field. Note that these actions only affect your own view, not everyone else's.

The cog icon at the top right of the chat window opens the Chat Settings window. Here you can change your nickname, to make a name other than your player or avatar name appear in the chat window alongside your text.This change will be seen by everyone when you type in the chat.

In the Parameters tab of the Chat Settings, you can set the font size and adjust the opacity of the chat window. This only affects your view of the chat window.
