I have decided to release what I have so far as a Christmas present to you all. It requires JRE 1.4 from http://www.java.com/en/download (correct me if I'm wrong).



http://toktok.sscentral.com/files/chatnet.zip

Known bugs
  • Last line shifts 1 pixel up when a new line is printed
  • You can only send chat on channels up to 9
  • Connecting to a dud server will hang (use ctrl+c or killall -9 java)

Missing features
  • No profiles
  • No up/down arrow key repeater
  • Links are not clickable

Apart from that I think it has all the other stuff.

Message to the rookies:
It only works with Asss servers. You can run it using "java chatnet" (use a command prompt, batch file, make a shortcut, whatever).

If you have make, you can also use "make run".

@pixelsoft
Make a shortcut to any of the files, then right click on the shortcut and edit the target to "java chatnet", then click on "apply", the target should then change to "C:\WINDOWS\java.exe chatnet" (without the quotes).

If you have JRE installed (which you should), the java directory should be in your path.

Depending on your version of Windows (WinNT-based) the MS VM can be in \system32 also.

Btw, pixel, Java doesn't have .exe's, since it's made to be cross-platform (and other things). Therefore you have to run the .class file as an argument to the virtual machine (java.exe). Hopefully that wasn't too confusing icon_razz.gif

I've added a zone manager where you can ping zones (for player count), set your name, pass and auto commands. You can't add or edit a zone yet (you have to edit zone.dat by hand).

You can run them on your comp. You could use microsoft's VM (\system32\java.exe) or use Sun's VM (which I recommend).

Once you get a VM, just type (in start -> run or a command prompt) java.exe [class name].

You're not in the right directory apparently. You have to either go to the right dirctory (using 'cd') or type the full path after 'java'.

You might want to consider packaging it as a jar file, which lets people run it with "java -jar file.jar" from any directory. Also, Sun's JRE (and probably others) sets up windows file associations so that double-clicking on a .jar file runs it, which makes it just as easy to run as an exe. You can put data files and all sorts of stuff in a .jar, although this application probably doesn't need anything beside the class files.

OK, it's now in a .jar file. You still need chatnet.conf and zone.dat outside of the archive. Developers that don't know how to pry inside a .jar file are not yet ready to handle what's inside.

v024
* Added an option to ping all zones on start-up (023 pinged by default)
* Updated included zone.dat

WinRAR can extract .jar files just like a zip for the noobs.

(You should have it anyway for the RAR format.)

So when they double click the .jar it doesn't execute, it opens?

(I find .zip is the most common format for compressed files on the internet, any .zip program can extract from .jar. Lets not turn this into a winzip vs winrar discussion.)

I found a bug in v024, it has been fixed in v025 (not yet uploaded). It only occurs when the biller sends a staff message (a case of the server stuffing the whole message into the name field instead of using the name and text field).

Nice job, looks pretty professional!

One thing:
If you try running it without a chatnet.conf in your directory, you get all sorts of exceptions (can't quit or connect to any zones).

v027
Fixed errors when no chatnet.conf or zone.dat is present (but it's a good idea to have them).
Fixed all types of message being logged when log levels are set to blank (none).

Edit 24/01/04: A bug has been identified in v027. In the .conf don't put white space around the keys. Fx: section:key=value is OK, section : key = value probably won't work. A fix has not yet been uploaded.

Ahh, is it connected to SSC biller - if so, any possibility you could give its ip and port, since it seems to be difficult to find those. tongue.gif
