Shadowbane In-Testing Notes 184.108.40.206
Shadowbane now has a friends list capability so you can track the online and offline status of your favorite fellow adventurers.
- You can bring up the friends list from the main menu under "Character."
- You can invite someone to be on your friends list. Note: this is always mutual – if you are on their friends list, they are on yours. Thus, they must accept your friend's list invitation.
- Other players can see your online state from the friends list.
- You can set your friend's list status to be "Away" or "Busy," and they will see that as well.
- You are notified when a friend logs on, logs off or dies.
- Right-click or control-click on a name in the friend's list to either send a tell to him, or to remove him from the friends list.
