Friends

From High Fidelity Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search

A High Fidelity environment is designed to be a shared experience. If you have a High Fidelity Account and you are logged in, you can see and be seen by other users online. If you see that a friend is online, you can use Interface navigation to go directly to that person.

See Who is Online

To see who is online, look to your lower left and you should see a Users Online panel.

The Users Online panel.

If you don't see this panel, select Tools > Users Online and it should display. If you don't have this option, check to see that the users.js script is running. (For information on how to view which scripts are running and how to run scripts, see Running Scripts in Interface.)

Control Visibility

By default, anyone who wants to be visible to everyone is visible to you. You, however, by default, are only visible to friends. If you have not created a friends list, you will not be visible to anyone. You can change who can see you and who you see by creating a friends list and then setting filtering and visibility options.

Create a Friends List

To create a friends list, click the Add/remove button. In the Add/Remove Friends panel that appears, enter a user's High Fidelity user ID and click Add friend to add them as a friend.

  • everyone: Show everyone online
  • friends: Show only the users in your friends list

Change Your Visibility Settings

To change your visibility settings, from the Visible to pulldown, select one of the following:

Go Directly to a Friend

If a friend is online, you can go directly to where they are using the navigation bar. Simply press the Enter key or select Navigate > Show Address Bar to access the navigation bar and then enter the user's High Fidelity ID preceded by an @ sign.
