After making Narrate feature available to VIPs as an early preview, we are now opening it up to our Access Pass community members. Narrate is of course emoting chat commands by typing /me! This has been a popular request by our role-players.

The feature is now available to both VIP and AP users in the pre-releases 512.2 and up. Download it today to check it out!

How does it work?

Pretty simple! If you are VIP or AP member, type /me in front of the text chat sentence where you want to act out or emote something.

Example:

Typing /me waves will be seen as "Varsha waves"

Typing /me shakes hand with Katiemarie will be seen as Varsha shakes hand with Katiemarie. Of course if Katiemarie is in the room, then our recently launched avatar name auto-complete feature will work there as well.

See it in action:



There is no opt-out setting for this feature as you can only opt-into using it by choosing to type "/me" in front of your chat text.

Thank you and we hope you enjoy adding emotions and actions to your chat conversations.

i'll be the first to say.. I was excited when I heard that this was coming out.

But as IMVU dragged and dragged it out as a "testing".. I lost interest in it.

Now that it's being dragged out even more now.. I can foresee even the GA community being like.. /sarcasm "Yay it's out."

That's my thoughts on this whole spiel.

Edit-

Being that when VIP members were given it.. it was to test and play around with it.. since it is out of testing.. it should be released to the whole community instead of playing these little games.

Why not everyone?? Confused

As Snowy said, if it's out of testing, it should be available to everyone now. I just don't get this rolling it out in stages.

To be honest, I am VIP and lost interest in using it very quickly. But then I don't RP either so maybe that is why. Cute feature just not much use to me.

I and a few of my AP friends are in a public chat setting and we've typed the /me before our narration attempt. We saw our own narration work for our own eyes, but the others did not see it. It's not translating as narration over to the other users. All they see is "/me waves" not "DarienLeonhart waves"

Has everyone updated to the release with the feature? If not, this could be the cause of the issue you are seeing. Also, is everyone using it AP and/or VIP? The feature is not available to everyone yet. Only AP and VIP.

Why should it matter if the people seeing the narration are AP/VIP and have 512.2? I mean, it matters if the person using the narration feature has those, not the people seeing it.

You would think so but when it first came out in pre-release and was VIP only testing, my non-VIP friends who had not yet updated didn't see the narrate either. They all were wondering why I was typing /me first.

At the very least, your friends may need to be updated to the 512.2 version to see it if they are AP but not VIP. I know, seems stupid but I know from my own experience that this can be an issue. I would suggest having everyone on the 512.2 version then see if everyone sees it or not.

Well my friends are also AP users and when I told them about the narration feature being available to them, they went and upgrade to 512.2 as well. And that was before we tried using it on each other. So clearly that's not the case.

To put it bluntly... if people have a client pre 512.2 but post when they added it to VIPs only... I'm going to assume that the way the client handles emotes/narration is a sort of local client 'does this person have the proper passes to use this ability'? type thing. Pre 512.2 the program ONLY recognized VIP holders as being able to use it, but 512.2 and up now also recognizes AP holders can use it.

I can't speak for other people, but I and my friends were all 512.2 when we encountered the problems and they were all AP holders. I said that much already.

That's weird... It wasn't showing that you said you were on 512.2... IMVU forums are screwing up again... meh
