Welcome everyone!

A brief tour

  • You can join T3A:Online and set up your account from the new T3A:Online web site.
  • You can manage your account, change your password and settings, create new profiles (nick names) and add buddies directly from the new site.
  • You can disable and enable profiles so that you can have more than the current maximum number of profiles.
  • You can create hidden profiles to keep yourself anonymous.

 

Get started with T3A:Online

 

If you're new to T3A:Online, you can make your Revora account and set up your new server login directly from the new T3A:Online site. Hit "Register" at the top of the front page to get started.


Setting up your Revora account

Please note that you can have only one account at Revora, so if you already have an account, you must not create another one and should ignore these steps. If you cannot access your existing account, please make a topic in the T3A:Online Support Forum on Revora. 

Fill in the form to create your new Revora account. Your user name is the name you'll use to log into the Revora forums and theT3A:Online site and not the name you'll use to log into your game, so you don't have to worry about it being too long for your game. You'll create a separate password to log into your game too (see the next section).

You will need to verify the email address you provide, so make sure it's valid. Once you have verified your account, you can move on to the next step.


Setting up your server account

Your Server Login Name is the name you provide as your EA Account Name when logging into the game.

Your Server Password is the password you provide when logging into your game. That password can be completely different to the password you use to log into the forums or T3A:Online site. Please note that this password is stored as plain text, so you should make sure that it's not the same password you use to protect your important data.

Both your Server Login Name and your password can be up to 16 characters long (although they should not be less than 4 characters long) but can contain only letters and numbers (no special characters). You can easily change those details and your email address later on, if you need to.

Get online!
You can find all about getting online in each game in the setup guide on t3aonline.net.

In summary, to get online, you will need to install the latest patches and the T3A:Online launcher, which you'll find on the download page.


"To know what question we may reasonably propose is in itself a strong evidence of sagacity or intelligence. For if a question be in itself incongruous and begs for uncalled-for answers, it holds, sometimes, besides embarrassing the proposer, the disadvantage to seduce the unguarded listener into giving absurd answers, and we are presented with the ridiculous spectacle of one (as the ancients said) milking the he-goat, and the other holding a sieve beneath."

Configuring your existing account and profiles

If you're logged in, you can edit almost all of your account settings by hitting "My Account" on the web site top menu.

Editing your account settings

You can edit all of your account settings from this page, with the exception of your email address. To change your email address, you need to follow the link to the Revora Forums User CP and set your new email address from there.

The ability to set a separate Server Login Name is a new feature. If you're already able to log in to T3A:Online, you can continue to use your log in name at Revora as your EA Account name to log into the games.


Editing your profiles or adding new profiles
Can view and edit your profiles or add a new profile from the "My Profiles" page. You can access that page, either from the top menu or from within the "My Account" page.

New Feature: Managing your buddies!
You can manage your buddies and send buddy requests directly from the new site. Accepted buddy requests will show in game.

Viewing another profile's buddies
The profile list of another player's profile will show on their profile page. You can look up the profile of another player from the "Profile" tab on the top menu, which allows you to search for a profile.

Adding a buddy
To add a profile as your buddy, look up the profile (as above) while logged in to your account and hit the "Add profile name as a buddy" at the bottom of the profile page. You will then be asked from which of your own profiles the buddy request should come. Select the profile from the drop-down list and a buddy request will be sent.

Accepting a buddy request
Buddy requests from other profiles will show on the profile page of your profile under Buddy Requests. You can accept or reject the request. Once you accept the request, the process will be complete and you will each show as buddies to each other in game.

Removing a buddy
You can remove a buddy from your profile page. In contrast to the way the buddy system worked under gamespy, removing a buddy from your own buddy list will also remove you from their list.


New Feature: Deactivating and Reactivating Profiles
You can deactivate and reactivate profiles, so you can keep your favourite profiles without exceeding the current limit of active profiles. Currently, there is a limit of 16 active profiles and if you have 16 profiles or more, you won't be able to make another one. Now you can deactivate profiles to get yourself below the limit. If you have less than the current limit of active profiles, you can create a new profile or re-activate one that you've deactivated.


Deactivating profiles
To deactivate a profile, hit the profile in the Active Profiles list (see above) to show the controls for that profile.

Hit "Deactivate this Profile" under Status. At the moment, there is no limit to the number of inactive profiles you can have on your account.

Reactivating profiles
To reactivate a deactivated profile, hit "Inactive Profiles" on the "My Profiles" page (above) to reveal a list of inactive profiles.

On the list of deactivated profiles, hit the profile that you wish to re-activate. You do not need to provide any confirmation but you should be aware that system will not allow you to reactive a profile if you already have the maximum number of active profiles; you will need to deactivate one of your active profiles first.


New Feature: Hidden / Anonymous Profiles
You can hide one of your profiles, so other players can't see who you are or what other profiles you have. You can hide an existing profile or create a new hidden profile. To hide a profile, select the profile from the list, and hit "Edit Visibility" under the Visibility section.

Check or uncheck the "Anonymous" check box, as desired. Please note that the system will not allow you to have more than one anonymous (hidden) profile, whether or not the existing anonymous profile is active or deactivated.


Thank you

We hope you enjoy the new features. The infrastructural changes beneath the surface of the new facilities will allow us to add further new features more easily, so you have more to look forward to. As ever though, T3A:Online is run by volunteers, does not make any kind of profit and relies on donations to keep going. Donations are always appreciated and needed. If you enjoy using the service, please do consider making a donation. You can do that from the T3A:Online site.
