Chatting in game
Whilst playing Diplomacy, it can be useful to check what other Diplomats are doing, or maybe you just want to have a chat.
Every server should have a channel (or two) that you can join to talk to other Diplomats.
To join a channel use the following command (replacing the word channel with the correct channel name):
It is also possible to configure Vanguard to automatically join any channels you want on startup. To view the current list of channels that are joined automatically, use the following command:
To set a new list of channels use the following command (entering the names of the channels):
/autojoin set list,of,channel,names
An example would be
/autojoin set dip,craft,regionsay,auction
Do NOT insert any spaces before or after the commas in the list of channels you want to join automatically. Keep in mind that regionsay and auction will by dynamically updated by the game as you move between regions. It's helpful to leave them at the end of your autojoin list so that your dip and craft channels will always stay at the same number. If you don't use them, or find you have no use for them, simply don't include them in /autojoin and you'll never hear from them again -- just like turning off shout in the chat tabs.
