Using Guild Chat with Third-Party Clients



Overview

The following sequence depicts usage of Guild Chat through Exodus, a free Jabber client available for download from http://exodus.jabberstudio.org/. Other third-party Jabber clients, such as the Jabber plug-in for Trillian (http://www.ceruleanstudios.com/index.php) will work in a similar manner. For more information on the Jabber protocols (XMPP), see http://www.xmpp.org/. All communication between the client and server conforms to this protocol, with extensions noted herein. Samples of packet structure are provided in this document for the Jabber extensions.

Connecting

To connect to the Guild Chat Server using a third-party client such as Exodus, enter "guildschat.station.sony.com" in the "Server" box. Allow the application to use the default port, which is 5222, to connect (click "Automatically discover host and port" in the "Connection" tab):

Logging in

A user may log into the Guild Chat Server using either of the following methods:

Method 1

Enter "WebClient" in the "Username" box.

Enter the "ssid" cookie from the SOE site in the "Password" box.

Method 2

Enter your Station login name in the "Username" box.

Enter your Station password in the "Password" box.

Note: This method is insecure unless SSL is used, in which case the default port is 5223. Click the "Use SSL immediately when connected" option on the "SSL" tab to enable secure communication.

Listing characters in a guild

In order to obtain a list of characters in a particular guild, a user may do any of the following:

Method 1

Select "Register with a Service" from the "Exodus" menu on Exodus.

Enter the fully-qualified guild name in the "Register with a Service" box. Note that the fully-qualified guild name is EQ2.World Name.Guild Name. For example, the Equinox guild on Mistmoore is denoted as EQ2.Mistmoore.Equinox.

A list of characters will appear in a pull-down box on the registration form.

(Click "Next")

Method 2

Attempt to enter the guild room, using guildschat.station.sony.com as the "Room Server":

The guild room name is the fully-qualified name of the guild, with the following character substitution to comply with the Jabber ID standard (see the JEP-0106 RFC for more details: http://www.jabber.org/jeps/jep-0106.html):

(space) becomes #20;
" becomes #22;
# becomes #23;
& becomes #26;
' becomes #27;
/ becomes #2F;
: becomes #3A;
< becomes #3C;
> becomes #3E;
@ becomes #40;

For example, the valid room name for the D'oh guild on Antonia Bayle is EQ2.Antonia#20;Bayle.D#27;oh.

On the first entry attempt, the server will send an error indicating that no character has been selected, and Exodus will ask the user to register:

The registration process will then proceed as in Method 1.

Method 3

Send the following packet directly to the server:

<iq type='get' id='id1'>
  <query xmlns='soe:iq:character#query'>
    <game>EQ2</game>
    <server>Server Name</server>
    <guild>Guild Name</guild>
  </query>
</iq>

with the fields in italics correctly filled in. For example:

<iq type='get' id='id1'>
  <query xmlns='soe:iq:character#query'>
    <game>EQ2</game>
    <server>Antonia Bayle</server>
    <guild>D’oh</guild>
  </query>
</iq>

Sending such a packet can be done from Exodus as follows:

  1. Select "Show Debug XML" from the "Tools" menu or press F12.

  1. Type (or paste) the packet into the lower section of the debug window.

  1. Right-click on that section of the window.
  2. Select "Send XML" from the pop-up menu that appears.

The returned packet from the server will be of this form:

<iq type='result' id='id1'>
  <query xmlns='soe:iq:character#query'>
    <game>EQ2</game>
    <server>Server Name</server>
    <guild>Guild Name</guild>
    <query-flat-results xmlns='http://soe.sony.com/guilds/view'>
      <property value='Character Name' name='result.01.name'/>
    </query-flat-results>
  </query>
</iq>

The fields in italics are the same as those submitted in the send packet, and "Character Name" will be the name of a valid EQ2 character in the given guild under the user's Station account. This field will be present zero or more times, once for each character that the user has in the guild. For example:

<iq type='result' id='id1'>
  <query xmlns='soe:iq:character#query'>
    <game>EQ2</game>
    <server>Antornia Bayle</server>
    <guild>D’oh</guild>
    <query-flat-results xmlns='http://soe.sony.com/guilds/view'>
      <property value='Annie' name='result.01.name'/>
      <property value='Buford' name='result.01.name'/>
      <property value='Cecilia' name='result.01.name'/>
    </query-flat-results>
  </query>
</iq>

Selecting a character with which to chat

If the user used Method 1 or Method 2 to obtain a list of characters, selecting a character consists of selecting the name from the drop-down list and clicking "Next" in the Exodus registration window.

With Method 3, it will be necessary to send a packet to the server in this form:

<iq type='set' id='id2'>
  <query xmlns='soe:iq:character#select'>
    <character>EQ2.World Name.Character Name</character>
  </query>
</iq>

For example:

<iq type='set' id='id2'>
  <query xmlns='soe:iq:character#select'>
    <character>EQ2.Antonia Bayle.Annie</character>
  </query>
</iq>

These packets can be sent from Exodus using the same steps as in Method 3 of "Listing characters in a guild". The server will return a result packet on success, and an error packet in case of failure:

<iq type='result' id='id2'>
  <query xmlns='soe:iq:character#select'>
    <character>EQ2.Antonia Bayle.Annie</character>
  </query>
</iq>

<iq type='error' id='id2'>
  <query xmlns='soe:iq:character#select'>
    <character>EQ2.Antonia Bayle.Annie</character>
  </query>
  <error type=’immediate’ code=’405’>SOE:Character name not listed
    <soe:characterSelect/>
  </error>
</iq>

Entering a guild chat room

Entering a chat room is done as in Method 2 of "Listing characters in a guild". After a character has been selected, however, room entry will succeed, and the chat room window will pop up in Exodus:

Note that characters in the room are listed by their fully-qualified names, which consist of the game name, server name, and character name, converted to a JID-compliant format using JEP-0106, just as the fully-qualified guild name was converted to a JID-compliant chat room name.

Chatting with in a guild room

To chat, simply type messages into the lower part of the chat window and press return. Your messages will appear next to your fully-qualified, JID-compliant character name:

The message will also be visible to web-based clients connected to guild chat (for the same guild) through the EQ2 Players web site, as well as characters belonging to that guild that are currently playing EQ2.

Sending instant messages

To send a message to another player in any SOE game (not just EQ2), select "Send Instant Message" from the "Exodus" menu or press F5:

Then, type the fully-qualified, JID-compliant name of the character to whom you wish to send a message, followed by "@" and a hostname (which is ignored) in the "Send a Message" box:

Alternatively, in place of the two steps above, if the character to which you wish to send an message is in the guild chat room, simply right-click on the character's name in the occupant pane and click "Message":

Type the message in the main area of the "Message to" window and click "Send":

Your message will be sent to the designated character; the "Subject" field will not be sent.

Obtaining your current list of ignored characters

For a user to obtain the current list of characters that their selected character is ignoring, the following packet must be sent to the server:

<iq type="get" id="getlist2">
     <query xmlns="jabber:iq:privacy">
       <list name="public"/>
     </query>
</iq>

The reply will look like this:

<iq type='result' id='getlist2'>
  <query xmlns='jabber:iq:privacy'>
    <list name='public'>
      <item type='jid' value='EQ.Quellious.Dreadful' action='deny' order='0'/>
      <item type='jid' value='EQ2.Mistmoore.Foolish' action='deny' order='0'/>
      <item type='jid' value='SWG.Ahazi.Goofus' action='deny' order='0'/>
    </list>
  </query>
</iq>

Altering your current list of ignored characters

To add a character to the list of ignores for your selected character, send a packet of this form:

<iq type="set" id="id1">
  <query xmlns="jabber:iq:privacy">
    <list name="public">
      <item type='jid' value='Game.Server.Character' action='deny' order='0'/>
    </list>
  </query>
</iq>

For example:

<iq type="set" id="id1">
  <query xmlns="jabber:iq:privacy">
    <list name="public">
      <item type='jid' value='SWG.Bria.Crazed’maniac' action='deny' order='0'/>
    </list>
  </query>
</iq>

To remove a character from the list, send a packet in this form:

<iq type="set" id="getlist2">
  <query xmlns="jabber:iq:privacy">
    <list name="public">
      <item type='jid' value='Game.Server.Character' action='allow' order='0'/>
    </list>
  </query>
</iq>

For example:

<iq type="set" id="id1">
  <query xmlns="jabber:iq:privacy">
    <list name="public">
      <item type='jid' value='SWG.Bria.Reformed’stalker' action='allow' order='0'/>
    </list>
  </query>
</iq>

The protocol for obtaining and altering the list of ignored character complies with the XMPP specification for privacy lists given by RFC 3921 (http://www.xmpp.org/specs/ - http://www.xmpp.org/specs/rfc3921.html#privacy). Exodus does not support this part of the protocol, but other third-party Jabber chat clients may allow the above functionality without requiring custom packets.

Getting data about a guild

In order to obtain the same data about a specific EQ2 guild that the web-based client displays, send a packet of this form:

<iq type='get' id='id2'>
  <query xmlns='soe:iq:guild#data'>
    <guild>EQ2.Server Name.Guild Name</guild> obtain the same data about a guild that the web-based client displays, send a packet of this form:
  </query>
</iq>

For example:

<iq type='get' id='id2'>
  <query xmlns='soe:iq:guild#data'>
    <guild>EQ2.Antonia Bayle.D’oh </guild>
  </query>
</iq>

The returned data will look like this:

<iq type='result' id='id2'>
  <query xmlns='soe:iq:guild#data'>
    <guild>EQ2.Antonia Bayle.D’oh</guild>
    <query-flat-results xmlns='http://soe.sony.com/guilds/view'>
      <property value='2600001' name='result.01.guildId'/>
      <property value='0' name='result.01.mostConcurrentMembersCount'/>
      <property value='' name='result.01.mostConcurrentMembersTimeStamp'/>
      <property value='Hello everybody!' name='result.01.motd'/>
      <property value='2600' name='result.01.shortId'/>
      <property value='1' name='result.01.stats.totalFighters'/>
      <property value='2' name='result.01.stats.totalMages'/>
      <property value='0' name='result.01.stats.totalPriests'/>
      <property value='1' name='result.01.stats.totalScouts'/>
    </query-flat-results>
  </query>
</iq>

Getting data about a character

In order to obtain the same data about a specific EQ2 character that the web-based client displays, send a packet of this form:

<iq type='get' id='id2'>
  <query xmlns='soe:iq:character#data'>
    <character>EQ2.Server Name.Character Name</character>
  </query>
</iq>

For example:

<iq type='get' id='id2'>
  <query xmlns='soe:iq:character#data'>
    <character>EQ2.Antonia Bayle.Dexter</character>
  </query>
</iq>

The server will send back data like this:

<iq type='result' id='id2'>
  <query xmlns='soe:iq:character#data'>
    <character> EQ2.Antonia Bayle.Dexter</character>
    <query-flat-results xmlns='http://soe.sony.com/guilds/view'>
      <property value='31' name='result.01.characterClass.archetypeClass.id'/>
      <property value='Scout'                                                                                             
                name='result.01.characterClass.archetypeClass.name'/>
      <property value='31' name='result.01.characterClass.id'/>
      <property value='Scout' name='result.01.characterClass.name'/>
      <property value='98476001' name='result.01.characterId'/>
      <property value='Qeynos' name='result.01.cityAlignmentName'/>

Third-Party Client Guild Chat Terms of Use

The Third-Party Client Guild Chat service (the "Service") is offered to you conditioned on your acceptance, without modification, of the terms and conditions set forth below (the "Terms of Use"). Sony Online Entertainment Inc. ("SOE" or "we") may change, add or remove any part of the Terms of Use at any time by posting a notice of such changes, and such modification(s) shall become effective immediately upon posting.

SOE shall determine, in its sole and absolute discretion, what SOE game or games (including what language-versions of those game(s)) the Service will be available for (individually and collectively referred to as the "Game"). All Game software and subscriptions are sold separately.

This Service is available for an individual who has and maintains one current and valid Station account and a corresponding current and valid Game account, as described in these Terms of Use, and who complies with SOE's published documentation concerning the Service, for the subscription period that you elect for such Game. Use of the Service by one Station account in connection with one Game does not entitle you to use the Service for any other Game or any other Station account, even if such other Game(s) or account(s) are registered by you. Your access to the Service will run concurrently with your subscription to the Game for which you are using the Service. If your Game account is suspended, terminates or expires, you may lose access to the Service during such time.

SOE may decide, in its sole and absolute discretion, to add or delete any game or games to or from the Service, modify the Terms of Use, or to suspend or shut-down the Service altogether.

1. Subject to the terms and conditions of these Terms of Use, SOE hereby grants you a limited, personal, revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicenseable license to use the Service solely for non-commercial purposes and in connection with your use of one Game for which the Service is offered and for no other purpose. You may not use the Service for any business, commercial or other purpose unless you obtain SOE's prior written permission, which may be withheld in SOE's sole and absolute discretion. SOE may discontinue the Service, in whole or in part, to any user or to all users, at any time in its sole and absolute discretion. Any rights that SOE does not expressly grant you in these Terms of Use are expressly reserved by SOE.

2. In order to use the Service, you must: (a) purchase or receive through an SOE-authorized promotional offer (such as an authentic disc bundled with a game magazine) the Game CD-ROM or DVD-ROM or applicable files which we may make available for direct download; (b) have a fully paid account for such Game in good standing that is not otherwise banned or suspended; (c) have at least the minimum system requirements to operate the Game and an Internet connection (both of which we do not provide) to access your account and the Service; and (d) have a valid and current Station account (a "Station Account") in good standing and that is not otherwise banned or suspended that you registered at www.station.com (the "Station"). You are bound by the Station Terms of Service (located at a hotlink at www.station.com) while using, viewing or accessing the Service and by the end user license agreement and rules of conduct for each Game offered by SOE as part of the Service and with which you are using the Service (for example, if SOE offers EverQuest II as part of the Service, and you use the Service with EverQuest II, you are bound by the EverQuest II User Agreement and Software License and rules of conduct), as each may be amended or modified by SOE in its sole and absolute discretion; these Terms of Use shall supplement, but not replace, the Station Terms of Service and Game end user license agreement and rules of conduct. The Privacy Policy that governs your use of the Service is located at a hotlink located at www.station.com. SOE reserves the right to suspend or terminate any Station Account of any member who has violated any of these Terms of Use; obviously, you will lose access to any game character(s) (for instance, EverQuest II characters) on any Station Account that SOE has suspended or terminated without any right to refund or recompense.

3. You shall not, through, via or in connection with your use of or access to the Service:

You acknowledge and agree that you have not and will not acquire or obtain any intellectual property or other rights, including any right of exploitation, of any kind in or to the Content relating to the Service or Game, the Service, or the Game, or any portion of any of the above, including, without limitation, in any artwork, music, character(s), item(s), coin(s), text, graphics, data, information or other material or property, and that all such property, material, data, information and items are exclusively owned by SOE and is the copyrighted property of SOE.

5. You understand that anything sent, displayed or used via the Service is the sole responsibility of the sending party or user. SOE has no obligation to monitor or supervise the Service, expressly disclaims any representation that it will monitor or supervise the Service -- but also expressly reserves the right to monitor or supervise the Service in its sole discretion. We cannot ensure that your private communications (or communications made to a group of people) and other personally identifiable information will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, we may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.

Furthermore, if you request any technical support, you consent to our remote accessing and review of the computer you use in connection with the Service for purposes of support and debugging. You agree that we may communicate with you via telephone, email and any similar technology for any purpose relating to the Service and any services or software which may in the future be provided by us or on our behalf. You acknowledge that any and all character data and other data and information relating to the Game and the Service is stored and is resident on our servers, and any and all communications that you make within or in connection with the Service (including, but not limited to, messages solely directed at another player or group of players) traverse through our servers, may or may not be monitored by us or our agents, you have no expectation of privacy in any such communications and expressly consent to such monitoring of communications you send and receive.

7. NEITHER SOE, ANY COMPANY AFFILIATED WITH SOE, SOE'S LICENSORS AND LICENSEES, NOR ANY OF THEIR RESPECTIVE DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES OR AGENTS, MAKE ANY WARRANTY WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THAT THE SERVICE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, AVAILABLE, SECURE, VIRUS FREE OR ERROR FREE. We are not liable for any delay or failure to perform resulting from any causes beyond our reasonable control.
