new beta chat

  • be in it!, weird link for chat beta up to the right while on the forum list

    beta chat

  • Looks like a stripped down version of the AJAX horror we moved away from two years ago. I'm going to stay on the chat I can use with a proper feature-rich client with, thank you very much. :)

  • At the moment it's pretty basic because there's more important things to focus on, but it has a lot of potential with site integration in the future.

    Our of interest what features do the IRC client have?

  • Well with IRC you can connect via a client, but you wouldn't get avatars that way.

    That leaves it open to some spoofing, but Shviller rules the chat with an iron fish.

  • Some id like to see are sound notification on any msg, or on name mention. Flashing the tab upon activity, along with the name changing to "people said stuff", or "your name mentioned"

    Also, it'd be cool if we could get the whole buddy thing integrated, so we could have a 2 friends are in chat thing at the top.

    I like how its so much like a basic page though, the way it just loads and starts with no script booting hiccup, and no irc logging stuff

  • (Damn, typed in a wall of text only to lose it in an auth error).

    My post sounds pretty negative, since all the positive stuff I had to say went to the chat itself, so here's a summary:

    What I use the most is logging (not to be confused with IRC nick identification. Lucid, I'm looking at ya!) and /whois and /whowas (so that I can bite the heads off impostors). Everything else is customization, like notifications: I'm only notified when someone mentions me, and not when someone just says something. Then there's a ton of small things like a multiline input field, not sending on Enter, etc. All in all, it'd take a lot of work to match the functionality of a standalone IRC client.

    Tom mentioned setting up Scirra's own IRC server, and that is a really great idea. One one hand, we get forum integration, on the other, people with personalized IRC clients can still use them just fine. Win/win.

    Edit: Oh yeah, another thing I use: being logged in from several PCs at once. All the better to see with, my child. >:3 Of course, on IRC I have to have several usernames for that to work.

    This is also on my wish-list.

    That was me, broski. I was the retard that got confused.
