Classes of Camelot Frequently Asked Questions
How do I send tells to my buddy Lilbunnyfoofoo?
There's many ways for you to communicate with Lilbunnyfoofoo. I'm assuming you've read the section on the Chat Window from part III, but if you have not, please go back and read that before continuing. You can say hello to Lilbunnyfoofoo by typing "/send Lilbunnyfoofoo Hello" in the Chat Window text box, and then pressing Enter. If you're familiar with some other games, you can also use /tell to do the same thing.
How do I talk to my group?
If you are on the Main tab of the Chat Window, you can type "/g Hello" or "/group Hello," and then pressing Enter. You can also switch over to the Group tab and just type "Hello," and then press Enter. From now on, I'll assume you can remember to press Enter after anything you type.
How do I talk to...?
Talking to your guild, group, chat group, or broadcasting in town all work the same way: /gu is used for guild, /g is used for group, /ch is used for chat group, /broad is used for broadcasting, and /as is used for alliance.
Broadcasting is something you can do in towns or forts only. When you broadcast, you communicate to everyone in that town or fort, so remember that before you go spamming about your toe lint to everyone in town.
Spamming is needlessly chattering to people when there is no need to do so, and usually is accompanied by annoyance. Please remember your netiquette.
Netiquette is Internet etiquette. This basically means respecting people's rights and treating them with respect. Spamming is against netiquette. Another commonly abused part of netiquette is spelling. Everyone has typos but please, please, please try to use 'you' in place of 'u' and 'your' in place of 'ur,' etc.
What is a Chat Filter?
If you right click anywhere on your Chat Window, a dialog window will appear with a bunch of checkboxes in it. You can filter your Chat Window so that it does not display certain messages. Read down the list, and if there is a type of message you care not to hear, uncheck the check box, and click the accept button. While you are in the Chat Filter window, you can also change the colors of the various types of text by highlighting the text type, and using the arrow keys at the bottom of the window to scroll through the available colors.
What is the rpfilter?
Mythic has added a neat feature that allows people to set up a filter to automatically translate common expressions into more roleplaying style text. This only affects the way the chat is displayed on you character's text window, and it's a bit complicated, so get comfortable =)
Bascially the game can store up to 75 phrases that you want to automatically display with different text. So, if the term 'INC' really annoys you, you could set it up so that anytime someone said 'INC' in any chat near you, it would be translated into something you didn't mind, such as 'An enemy approaches!'. The command to do this is as follows (without the quotes):
/rpfilter 'phrase' 'new phrase'
For example, using the above text:
/rpfilter inc An enemy approaches!
There are some restrictions on what you can change. The text you want to replace has to be between 3 and 10 characters long, and the phrase you want replace it with has to be between 1 and 20 characters long. The filter will also ignore the letter combinations within other words, although it is case insensitive. So, again using the above example, whereas 'InC!!' will get translated, 'incredible' won't be changed.
I'm on a server that's been clustered. How do I talk to people on other servers in the cluster?
Using our example of Lilbunnyfoofoo from earlier, let's say your friend plays on Percival. You would type "/send Lilbunnyfoofoo-Percival" and then your message.
You don't always have to type out the entire server name when doing this - just enough to make the server name unique among the cluster should be enough. In this case, because Percival is clustered with Palomides, you would need to type at least -Pe as the server name.
How do I find out if Lilbunnyfoofoo is online for me to talk to?
Well, you can type /who Lilbunnyfoofoo in the text box. You can also type any part of Lilbunnyfoofoo's name. So /who Lilbunny will work- but it will also give you anyone else whose name contains Lilbunny.
Can /who do anything else?
It sure can. If you are looking for a hunting partner, you can type /who druid 5. If you'd like to see everyone online that's level 5, just type /who 5. You can also see everyone online in a certain range, so if you'd like to see all Druids between level 5 and 10, you can try /who druid 5 10.
Lilbunnyfoofoo told me to ask his guild for an invite, who are they?
Well, /who can help you out again. If Lilbunnyfoofoo is in the Fairy Tales guild, you can type /who "Fairy Tales" to see everyone in his guild.
What's a Chat Group?
A Chat Group is simply a collection of people who form a channel of communication called a Chat Group, which allows them all to talk to each other over long distances.
How do I start a chat group?
Well, it would be easier if I just went over all of the Chat Group commands at the same time. There is no actual command to create the chat group, so you just start by inviting people. When you invite someone and create the chat group, you are the owner of the chat group. If you then leave the chat group, the first person you invited will become the owner.
/cg invite Lilbunnyfoofoo invites Lilbunnyfoofoo to your chat group (moderator only)
/cg remove Lilbunnyfoofoo removes Lilbunnyfoofoo from your chat group - Use this if he repeatedly *bops* your friend FieldMouse (moderator only)
/cg leave allows you to leave a Chat Group
/cg decline declines an invitation to join a chat group
/cg join accepts an invitation to join a chat group, or you can just click Accept when the dialog box appears.
/cg who gives you a list of everyone in the chat group
/cg listen - puts the chat group on listen mode. Only the moderator and leaders can speak.
/cg leader (name) - declare another member of the chat group as a leader. This player can invite other players into the chat group and speak when the chat group is on listen mode. You don't need to use parentheses.
/cg public - The chatgroup is public and anyone can join by typing /cg join
/cg private - The chatgroup is invite or password only.
/cg join (moderator name) - joins a public chat group by name of the moderator.
/cg join (moderator name) (password) - joins a private chat group which has a password set.
/cg password - display the current password for the chat group (moderator only)
/cg password clear - clear the current password (moderator only)
/cg password (text) - set a new password
What's an NPC?
An NPC is a Non-player character. Any computer controlled character, such as a merchant or guard is an NPC.
How do I talk to NPCs?
Simple, you right-click on them, and they will tell you anything they have to say. If the NPC is a merchant, they will bring up their merchant window. If you speak to your Guild Trainer, he will bring up your training window. Any other NPC will simply bring up a chat window if he or she has something to talk about.
