While Bump continues to be tested we have info on it for you.
- First off, as of this posting Bump only appears to be functioning in the HELP chat
- Bump is used to get the attention of someone that has either left the PC, has looked away, or simply doesn’t realize that they’ve been PC’d. Right now, it looks to be a user power strictly for use within a private chat
- How to use: Private chat a user, if he doesn’t respond, type (bump) then hit enter. The chat will visually shake violently, your tab will appear RED to the user and he will hear a sound altering him to your private chat. What’s especially interesting is that Xat has taken a sound-byte right from their own Audies page. So, those of you wanting to know what bump sounds like only need go as far as our Xat sounds codes page and click the LISTEN link adjacent to #laserfire3. Xat appears to also have killed that particular audie from being used as a “normal” audie in the chat; test it out! This has since been fixed.
Here is a screenshot of the red tab that a user being bumped would see:
Special thanks to Phsycical of Help and VGI for giving me a hand with the power and the screenshot.
