The channels

In 2019 (JA 2603 patch), the team began by testing the DeepL automatic translation on the channel Around and on some RC channels [1]. In September 2022, many channels are translated, both in-game and on RC [2].

  • right click on an older message copy it, then just paste (by CTRL+V).
  • To navigate through the history of a channel, use the arrows on the keyboard ↑ and ↓


A flag to show Deepl translated (here, from English to French)
Messages sent normally in the around channel have a 25m range.
  • /s
  • /say

These commands will make your messages have a 50m range and will appear red (by default) for you.

  • /sh
  • /shout
  • /y
  • /yell

Emotes are translated too.

With JA 2603 patch (in 2019/08), all text in Around is translated using Deepl.

The image above is an example, a flag indicates that Deepl has translated (here from English to French) - excerpt from the album Kami blast.

  • The sentences in surroundings channel prefixed by ">" won't be translated.
  • To disable translation :
    /a setDontTranslateLangs separated by pipe character
    Example: /a setDontTranslateLangs us|fr

Dynamic Channels

A player can have up to 5 dynamic channels: One faction channel, one racial channel, two custom channels and possibly an event channel too.

However, it's also possible to have no dynamic channels at all. And usually players are prohibited from talking in event channels. So depending on which dynamic channels you have, these commands might not work.

  • /0 Talk in the player's 1st dynamic chat channel. The first dynamic channel is usually the faction channel.
  • /1 Talk in the player's 2nd dynamic chat channel. The second dynamic channel is usually the racial channel.
  • /2 Talk in the player's 3rd dynamic chat channel. Could be a custom channel or an event channel.
  • /3 Talk in the player's 4th dynamic chat channel. Could be a custom channel or an event channel.
  • /4 Talk in the player's 5th dynamic chat channel. You'll never have this many dynamic channels unless there's an event channel active.

To record your dynamic channels, see Patch 2019/JY 2603 Documentation.

Custom channels

You can create your own channels as well, or join those created by others. A player can be connected to at most 2 custom channels at a time.

  • /channel <channelname> Join the channel with the given name, or create it if doesn't exist already.
  • /channel <channelname> <password> Join or create a channel with password protection.
  • /channel <channelname> * Leave the channel with the given name.
  • /0, /1, /2, /3 <message>: to speak in custom channels.

RC FAQ can have custom channels too (as much more features - RC is for Ryzom Rocket Chat, the external chat).

Private messages

  • /t <playername> <message> Send a whisper to a player (if the player is in game)
  • /tell <playername> <message> Send a whisper to a player
