VirtualPREX How To...

Talking (through text chat)
To talk to anyone that is nearby, talk in the Local Chat window (see right). Just click on the Chat button on the bottom of the screen. The arrow to the right of the chat window enables the window to be open so that you can see more of the conversation.

My GroupsTo talk in Group Chat (see right) – right mouse click on yourself. Choose “My Groups” and then click on the group you want to talk to (see below, left, a list of sample groups - these are VirtualPREX groups). Then choose Group Chat. You will then have another window open in which you can liaise and interact with other members of your group (see below, right). When using Group Chat, anyone that is not a member cannot hear what you are saying, even though they may be next to you.
Below is an example of the Group Chat window. Click in the white area to say something via text.
