You can use iChat to chat with other players in a network game, so long as all other players have iChat running and are logged in.

Choose iChat from the Network menu, or click the iChat button in the toolbar.

The player on the game server can also chat with individual players by selecting them in the Server Status window and clicking the iChat button.

Each player should already have their AIM handle in the Address Book on their own computer. If they do not, they should follow these steps:

  1. Open Address Book.
  2. Choose "Show My Card" from the Card menu.
  3. Click the Edit button.
  4. Enter the handle in the blank labeled "AIM".
  5. Click the Edit button again.
There should be cards in your Address Book for each player you wish to chat with.

Note: iChat requires Mac OS X version 10.2 or later.
