Virtual Places is chat software that allows you to talk in realtime mode using any page on the internet for a background.
While using the software you can send private messages or participate in the general conversation on the page.
Each page has a maximum number of participants, depending on how the page was defined. It can be from 15 people
to any reasonable limit, usually no more than 40. The newer version of VP (2.1) also allows the transfer of files including
Avatars between participants. This is done by using the right mouse button and clicking on someones avatar on the page.
Also available in Virual Places are Gestures. Gestures can be a combination of pictures, text and sound and are pre recorded.
Gestures are stored on your hard drive and executed from a menu. You can always see the text from someone elses Gesture,
but you can only hear the sound and see the picture if you have the Gesture installed on your PC. Gestures should be used
sparingly, they slow down the discussion and movement on the web page (which is also called LAG).
