In-game Chat Channel

[!]

Attention!
FiReMaGe's bot (as described below) is currently not online. ITAN and draugath were nice enough to provide a temporary public service and keep relaying the in-game chat via their guild bot "Xishnik". The instructions and commands described below are therefore currently not valid. To chat to the game, simply type your chat into the #vrelay channel, preceded by an exclamation mark: !Hello VO...!

Through hard work by FiReMaGe, it is possible to chat with people in-game while you yourself are not logged into your game.
In order to do this you must first log onto our IRC server (see above) and join the channel #vrelay. Then you must register with FiReMaGe's bot, which is named vo in the channel (and IRC in-game:

  1. Register your IRC nickname if you have not already using nickserv.
    • Type: /msg nickserv register (password) (email) Replacing password with the password you'd like and email with your valid email address.
    • Now activate your account by following the directions in your email (it will send you an activation code).
    • Type: /msg nickserv identify (password)
  2. In your IRC client, type /msg vo link (game name) where (game name) is the name of the character in the game you want to act as
  3. You need to log in to Vendetta and do what the bot told you to do, which should be to type (in-game): /msg IRC link (your IRC nickname)
  4. Congratulations, your IRC nickname will now be able to use the bot! You can send the commands you see in the following section, Commands to the bot.

Commands

The commands you can send to the IRC bot and what they do.
