New Chat Commands and Issues

new language chat feature added 2011-12-20
To change free roam language channels:
/join AA NN (slash join SPACE language_code channel_number ENTER)

Language Codes/Channels available:
Code:
English   EN / 1-15
German    DE / 1-8
French    FR / 1-7
Spanish   ES / 1-10
Polish    PL / 1-3
Portugues BR / 1-8
Russian   RU / 1-16
*GENERAL  GN / 1-15
*GN means general and is for players who's native language is not available.

Note: Channel number is optional and will be assigned random one if left off

Examples:
/join EN
/join EN 1


To change chat channels:
/C (slash channel SPACE)
Code:
Free Roam  /f or /s
Event      /e
Whisper   /w
Group     /g
Examples:
/f Now I am in free roam channel
/e Now I am in event channel
/w Now I am in whisper channel

NOTE1: If you whisper to someone while in the event lobby, it auto changes to the whisper channel and you appear "stuck".
Type /e SPACE to change back to event channel.


NOTE2: If you whisper to someone while in the free roam, it auto changes to the whisper channel and you are unable to use the language drop-downs to get back. Type /f SPACE to change back to free roam channel or pick free roam from the channel drop down.

Issues:
  • Auto change to whisper channel while in event lobby if whisper to someone -- SHOULD BE KEPT IN EVENT CHANNEL
  • Friends channel no longer available -- USED BY CREWS AND OTHERS TO BROADCAST INFO TO FRIENDS -- SHOULD BE ADDED BACK
  • Game unable to re-connect to current language channel when changing drivers -- HAVE TO MANUALLY SWITCH BACK -- ANNOYING BUT LOW PRIORITY


Let me know of any other useful info or issues found (aside from general chat block issue) and I will add it.
Thanks! Smile

Also, refer to EA forum for more updated version maintained here

1. The game doesn't detect your language ingame. The last used region until you log off is saved in the settings file.

2. Changing a driver actually disconnects from the chat.
After choosing a driver it reconnects, but:
If that channel is full, you will be redirected to a different one in the same region.

Be aware: If the top of the chat window says EN and no number, you might have been thrown in a channel, that has been known as -1 .
Try to use the join command above to join EN / DE where-ever you like to go.

1. Yes I noticed this too

2. Yes, it worked that way before...BUT now it appears to ALWAYS not be able to re-connect to the same language channel one was on at least for EN. Before it did this on rare occasion. Now, in all cases, I have been able to immediately change to the previous channel. Mind you , I am not talking about EN 1, this happens even with GN 15 which is relatively empty.

The odd thing about the -1 or whatever channel is that the channel pop-up list does not work until you change/reset the language. Now that I am leaving the game while on GN, it seems to put me on a GN channel when I re-enter the game as it should.
