Even though I'm not totally sure if this is the right thread to ask this sort of thing, I thought it wouldn't be a problem starting a thread relating to this mod anyway. I am certainly finding it useful for some things.

One think I want to ask though is about how to type through your server console / terminal so the players on your server can see the messages. Before I used Beryllium, i could just type in the terminal outside wop and when i hit enter, unless it was a command, everyone on the server would see a message. This was sometimes useful if i needed to warn people on my server that it needed to be shut down when i wan't in the game. Now I'm running beryllium, it seems to think every thing is a command. If you type something that isn't and you just want it to be a message to say to everyone, you get a message saying "unknown command"

I'm wondering if there is a certain symbol i need to type before what i want to say to let the server know this is an announcement or something. As I said, I could do this before I used beryllium. Would much appreciate some help.

The reason why I thought I would create the thread in this section rather than troubleshooting was because we could possibly have any discussion relating to this mod here in the future.

Hi Ben,

even with Beryllium you can still write:

say "Enter your message here"

Every player on your server can read that chat message.

Beryllium has a really good readme.txt written by The Brain. There are much more chat commands in Beryllium you can use! It would be wise to take a look at that, because The Brain's english is much better than mine ;-) However, feel free to ask if there something you don't understand :-)

I did look through that readme when i first got the mod and it helped a lot. But I've since looked again and haven't found what I'm looking for. I will try to describe the exact thing i mean.

Without running berillium, when my server is running in a terminal, i can simply start typing even without a / or anything. For example if i type "test message", my terminal will then say "broadcast: print "server: test message"" And in the game, in white text, everyone will see that as "server: test message"

With berillium, typing the same thing "test message results in the terminal saying this below: "unknown game command: test message"

If i type "say (then a message in speech marks) , my terminal doesn't say anything, but in the game, it says "unknown client game command: chat"

Berillium has enabled me to do so many things, but I haven't been able to figure out a way of chatting via my terminal which is often useful and i very often did that before i used this mod.

Thanks for the help.

Hi Ben,

sry, i've give you the wrong command. The correct chat command is

ssay "I'm a message for you :-)"

But, as i said before, Beryllium has a really good readme:

:: stell cid text
Serverside tell chat.

:: ssay text
Serverside say chat.

:: ssay_team team text
Serverside team chat. Use r,b,s,f as team name.

Always have fun :-)

Thanks hectic, i did see these but i sometimes misunderstand basic instructions! I couldn't tell which part you were meant to type and i tried several combinations. but now you have told me, it works fine. I just need to remember to type "ssay" and then my text.
