HELP!!!!

SYNAPSE’s User Interface is designed based on years of feedback from GridTalkie users to provide a streamlined experience that will satisfy most users.

Quick Start Instructions

If you received an “Uninitialized Device” package:

  1. Rez the package on the ground. The radio will be visible as a large product box.
  2. Select a network from the dialog prompt.
  3. Select ‘confirm’ to lock in the channel and rename the device.
  4. Take the box, now named after the selected channel, into your inventory.
  5. Attach the new item in your inventory named after the channel.
  6. You may be asked to enter a password, if you know the password, type it into the box and click ‘submit’.
    (If you don’t know the password, contact the owner, their name is listed in the device startup text.)
  7. Talk using the chat bar with “/3 (message)”  example: /3 Howdy!

If you received an object named “______ Synapse [model] x.xx”:

  1. Attach the SYNAPSE device
  2. You may be asked to enter a password, if you know the password, type it into the box and click ‘submit’.
    (If you don’t know the password, contact the owner, their name is listed in the device startup text.)
  3. Talk using the chat bar with “/3 (message)”  example: /3 Howdy!

Channel Commands

  • “menu” (example: /3 menu)
    Opens the system menu. Options listed below in greater detail.
  • “list” (example: /3 list)
    Returns a list of users on the channel
  • “coords” (example: /3 coords)
    Tells people where you in-world. In case you get lost.
    Also sends vital sim statistics, so you can prove your sim is lagged out.
  • “!!” (example: /3!!)
    This opens a secure text prompt on a very high channel.

Menu Options

  • “Secure Text” – Opens a secured text input for sending secured messages.
  • “RP Mode” / “RP Off” – This will cause the Synapse to emote your transmissions into open chat.
  • “BugOut” / “BugOff” – This will move the Synapse’s output to the DEBUG WINDOW. This option is really useful if you’re in a spam-heavy environment.
  • “List Users” – returns a list of users on channel.
  • “Send GPS” – sends your SL location, sim data, and handy SLURL to the channel.
  • “My Name” – produces a textbox input to input a custom name up to 35 characters.
  • “Input /x” – allows you to pick from a list of common input channels or enter a custom channel.
  • “Customize” – Gives you list of options for setting the texture or color of the device. For more customization options, visit the Synapse Store in-world.
  • “Help” – links to this document

Secure Text

In some RP or Combat situations, less discerning individuals will wear scripts that listen in on subchannel chat. This may or may not be a form of cheating or simple being a tool, depending on your sim’s rules.  The default input channel (/3) is definitely not secured, but left at /3 for convenience. It’s advised you change this input at your discretion.

In situations where you want to send a message that can’t be picked up by a chat spy, use the Secure Text option. It uses a really high (negative space, between 8 million and two billion) subchannel for the input that will probably not be picked up by listening scripts.

As always, Synapse is a rp tool, not a secured gateway, so don’t send account information, personal info, etc.
