Can't use OOC

Question

siKz    5

Hello, so, me and a friend of mine came on the server for the first time and  when we try using OOC, it doesn't work (we also can't see any messages coming from OOC).

I believe we're doing everything correctly, for example, if I wanted to say "I'm going AFK, 5 minutes" I would type on Direct chat "//I'm going afk, 5 minutes."

I joined TeamSpeak to see if I could find any help but even a Game Master never came across this issue... We'd like to know if anyone of you knows how to fix this problem.

Thanks for the attention :) PS: I have everything related to chat ticked on the options menu.

Does it allow you to type at all or does the chat box not come up when you press / ?

Check your in game settings there will be an option to enable local game chat. Try that.

It's possible that your chat bar is below your view, are you seeing anything chat related when you get ig?

If you see normal text then you should see when people use OOC, I have never had this problem. Check your game settings I think there is a setting where you can enable/disable text messages.

Yes it does, when I type, for example, "hi", as long as my friend is range, he can see the message.

okay. What happens when you try and use the //. Does the text just not appear or does it not let you send it?

I can see when people get kicked for not being whitelisted, etc

That is the point, there is no code for OOC. Its just an indication for other players, to know youre talking Out Of Character.

Nothing is wrong.

the // is an indication that you are speaking OOC rather than IC as TextRP is a viable option of RP.

There is nothing special that is supposed to happen other than that :)

It appears with "//" behind the text but no one sees it unless they're in range

I may or may not have tried twice sending the same message :P , I thought someone would tell me to stop if I was spamming OOC

so if you type "//brb" it would appear as "//brb"?

Exactly

if my textrp character says hi, I type in the ingame chat: "Hi."

If my character scratches his nose, I type in the in game chat: "*scratches nose*"

If I experience a bug, for example I cannot put my weapon away but find myself in a role play situation with others ,  I type "// i need to relog"   the "//" shows other players around me that I am communicating out of character (ooc).

OHHHH That explains a lot! I'm used to Garry's Mod DarkRP where usually there's a specific chat code thingy for OOC and everyone on the server sees messages sent to OOC. Thanks!

Thanks a lot for the help everyone :)
