DISCORD

I have trouble using Push to Talk in Discord, why isn't it working when I play Mabi?


It's a known issue that push to talk will not work on the Discord program if you are viewing Mabi. To fix this problem, you will need to RUN DISCORD IN ADMIN MODE. To do this, right click your Discord icon and go to "Run as administrator" so it recognizes Discord's hotkeys.




I'm not using my home computer, can I access your server somewhere else?


Yes, Discord can be accessible through an internet browser. You can simply log into your account on Discord




OH NO, I joined a voice channel by accident, how do I leave it? I don't want people to hear me!


It's ok! Unless you have voice activity on, no one can hear you unless you press your "Push to Talk" button. To leave the channel, simply press the phone icon next to "Voice Connected". If you're really worried, pressing the mic or headphones below it will mute your microphone or headphones when it's crossed out.




How do I set up my Push to Talk key?


Press the cog wheel (see previous screenshot) next to your icon and go to Voice under the App Settings. There you can choose "Push to Talk" and change the shortcut key to the key you want to press when you want to chat. Keep in mind that "Voice Activity" turns on your mic AUTOMATICALLY by voice detection. It is ideal to adjust your voice activity levels appropriately so you do not activate constant background noise and disrupt other players.




How does the chat levels work and how do I check my ranking for the leaderboards?


To check your ranking, simply type in the #command_center:
!rank
to see what your rank and level is. It will also show how much exp you need in order to level up to the next level.

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE LEADERBOARD RANKINGS or you can simply type !levels in the #command_center.
You will gain exp by participating in text channels by simply sending messages in the channel. Each time you post a message, you get a random number of XP between 15 & 25. To avid spamming and flood messages, you can only gain xp once per minute.




How do I use the radio in the discord radio garage?


First, go in the Radio Garage channel. It is very important that YOU are in this channel otherwise you will move the radio bot to the wrong channel. Then click on the #command_center and type in the commands for the radio. To see the FULL list of commands type: ;;commands MUSIC BOT - FREDBOAT ;;join or ;;leave - Bring the music bot in the channel and kick it out. ;;play (url) or ;;play (search song title) - Adds your song in the radio to play
Example: ;;play bruno mars treasure
OR ;;play https://youtu.be/Sds5SpNd1Mw ;;list - See the list of songs in the radio ;;skip or ;;skip # or skip #-# - Skips the current song or a specific song in the radio (please do not be rude and skip everyone's song unless it's super disruptive!) ;;nowplaying - See what song is nowplaying in the radio

ADJUSTING RADIO BOT VOLUME: Right click the music bot and adjust the volume to your liking. Don't worry, it only changes the volume for you, not for everyone in the channel. PLAYING A SONG BY SEARCHING A TITLE WITH MULTIPLE RESULTS (FREDBOAT)
After typing ;;play SONG TITLE HERE, you may get several results numbered 1-5. The next step is to type: ;;play # on the list.




Can I give myself more than one server role?


Yes you can, however I suggest you only choose one "server" so other players don't get confused. Just remember that having multiple roles will not have you appear multiple times on the member list. It will only show the role that's closest to the top of the list.




Do I have to state what server I'm on when I post selling / buying items in the #mabi_market_cellar?


If you are properly categorized in a specific group, you do not need to since your character's name will be the same color of what specific server role. However, if you chose multiple roles or just want to post the server, you are free to. Another great way to advertise in this channel is to mention your role (server) so everyone in your server can see your advertisement. However please do not spam the mention commands.




Do I need to have a microphone to join?


A microphone is only needed if you want to participate by talking in voice chats so no, it is not required. You can always listen to voice chats without a microphone. However it is recommended to have a headphone to prevent echo playbacks if you decide to use voice activity.




I am being harrassed or someone is causing trouble / trolling in the server group, what should I do?


Please immediately report any problems to bobo or a mod in the Discord. Do your best to collect / screenshot any evidence to help us determine what action needs to be done. I suggest using a program like gyazo.com, it allows you to take a screenshot of anything on your computer and upload it automatically.




How do I get the Epic, Mods or Alliance role?


MODS ROLE is for moderators in the Discord. This specific role can only be obtain if you are an Alliance or Epic role & choose to take on the responsibilities. Those in these roles must send a DM to bobo directly on Discord inquiring these responsibilities.
ALLIANCE ROLE is a role for trusted members of the RESTLESS GUILD. This means the member must be an active long term member of the guild (each game varies). Once recognized by other members and leaders, they will be automatically added into this role.
EPIC ROLE is a special role rewarded to active players in the chat for their special achievements & contributions to mabiBOBO. Based on their active contribution and achievements, members will be given this role by bobo, Mods, or Alliance members. If the member does not want this role, they can ask to be removed.





MABIBOBO

Can I send a video request?


Although I have in the past, I am currently not taking any video requests. This is unfortunately due to time restraints and work / life changes. Additionally, most requests are questions that can be answered by myself or other players in Mabinogi so it's quicker to ask them in my Discord or live stream.




Can I add you as a friend in game?


This is a very common question I get and unfortunately I do not accept random friend requests due to several reasons. Main reason is because it can be disruptive to my recordings if LOTS of messages show up out of the blue. Second reason being there is a friend list limit and eventually I will not be able to accept everyone. Third, I could go offline to avoid messages, however it would mean I have to play hidden most of the time and it's not my cup of tea.

Please understand I will welcome the "add" but will reject it so you can still right click my name and enter my homestead whenever you please.
Note that there will be times I actually DO ACCEPT friend adds if I've actually interacted with you personally, build a friendship and feel you are more than just a random add.




Where can I find you in game?


Firstly, I am on the North American Mabinogi Nao server. You will mostly find me on Channel 5 as my home channel. I mainly AFK in Dunbarton, Belvast or hang out at active event locations.




How long have you played Mabinogi?


I've been playing Mabinogi since BETA RELEASE in North America (March 2008). I've had moments where I took breaks, but I always come back to the game!




How often do you do events & giveaways?


This is based on the reason for celebrating and how much Youtube earnings I receive. For example, most giveaways are for holiday events like Christmas, goal achievements like a certain amount of subscribers, or special birthday events. Some events may be exclusive only to my Twitter, Discord, Youtube or Twitch so be sure to follow / join them all!





LIVE STREAM

When do you stream?  I always seem to miss it!


I do not have a fixed stream schedule since I often have plans that can change it. Usually, I will stream on the weekends during the evenings PST or sometimes afternoon. Please turn on notifications in Youtube, Twitch and Twitter to receive notifications when I start to stream.




I see you are on live!  Can I visit you in game & be part of the stream?


In most cases, YES you can find me in game if I am live streaming. I enjoy the company of others! However the only time I prefer folks do not follow me is when I do my gachapon openings.
