Keep In Touch With Your Friends

With the Station Friends feature on Station Launcher, you'll be able to see whether your friends are online, what Station game they're playing, and if they're playing the character you've made friends with (if permitted by your friend's privacy preferences).

Your friends will display on the Launcher as the character you made friends with in-game. Double click their name to begin chatting with them, even if they're not playing that character right now!

To find out more about how Station Friends works, read up on the Station Launcher Users Guide.


Find Your Friends Fast!

You can view your friends in different ways:

  • By Activity: View friends by their current activity. Got a friend playing PlanetSide? Go join 'em soldier! Is your friend currently in Station Launcher? Start a chat and convince them to join you in EQII to help finish a hard quest!

  • By Friend: View your entire friends list alphabetically. Need to find a particular friend? Use this view!

  • By Character: View your friends by which of your characters they're linked to. Want to play your fave character? Check out who's on that character's friends list here!


Search For Old Friends


Friends from your character's in-game Friends Lists are automatically included on your Station Launcher Friends list. You can chat with friends from the game you currently play, or with friends from long ago!

For example, you can look up old friends from EverQuest by using the EQPlayers website, and the same for EQII Players, Planetside Players, and Vanguard Players. Friends from Star Wars: Galaxies and The Matrix Online can also be added.

Use the "Add" button in Station Launcher to put them on your Friends list by filling in their character name, game and server.


Privacy Settings


Rest assured! You can turn off the Station Friends system from the status area. You can also access privacy settings for each of your characters in: Options Menu > Preferences > Privacy Settings
