Sending Messages Inside the Game
The picture above is pretty close to what a Windows or Linux user will see. The mac client looks a bit different.
How to send Messages: Type 'm' or put your mouse cursor in the
outgoing message window. On the Windows and Linux clients, it is
the upper of the two thin one-line windows labeled "Typing" in the
above diagram. This will be right below either the galactic or
the tactical screen in most layouts. MacTrek has a text entry box
in the middle of the right side of the screen.
|Send to All (Everyone!)
|Send to your own team
|Message is sent to player of that number/letter
|Send to Federation, Klingons, Romulans or Orions
Type now your message followed by enter. Use the Esc key to cancel a message before sending it.
In most clients, you also can start a team message by putting your mouse
pointer in the team message window,
and an "All" message by putting the pointer in the "All" window.
In Windows clients, you can start a message to a player by putting your mouse pointer over that player's entry in the playerlist window.
