WookieChat is a new Amiga IRC client, for chatting on Internet Relay Chat networks. Version 1.1b has been released today. New in this release is the addition of a basic prefs and server selection window, so you dont have to manually type "/server irc.vapor.com" everytime you want to connect to a server.. you can now just select the server name, then click connect, or connect in new tab if you wish to use multiple servers at once. Adding/deleting/editing servers and server groups is possible now too. Version 1.1 did not have a configurable username, which annoyed a lot of people, but that has been fixed. Download the latest version from the WookieChat homepage. Dont forget to read the readme, theres important information in there.

WookieChat is looking great. It's fantastic to see new developments, especially more complicated applications like an IRC client. Good luck James!

This is great! BitchX wouldn't seem to compile/work right for me on MOS (But, I'm not much of a coder :-) and I had some MUI issues with BlackIRC. It works, but is slow. Now I'm off to see how MOS handles this new software.. Thanks!

What is with these MOS dudes? They've got a registered version of AmIRC, for free, which is a much better program. They don't need WookieChat.

For free? Care to point us where we can download registered AmIrc for free, please.

>They don't need WookieChat.

And Windows users have Mirc.
Why they also need Advanced IRC, Babbel, Bersirc, BoxedIRC, Cabral, CHOCOA, CiRcLe, Diplomat, dIRC, FlexIRC, FreeIRC, hirc, HydraIRC, IamC, ichat, IRC Gold, IRC Messenger, IRCaman, Irssi, ircbase, klient, leafchat, Masquerade, MaxxChat, ML IRC, MonIRC, MuriChat, OrbitIRC, Pirch, PowerChat, QuIRC, Relay-WFC, RoxIRC, TCustomIRC, TeleCafe, Trillian, TurboIRC, TurboIRC 2000, TuxIRC, ViRC, Winsock, WiRC, WSIRC, X-Chat, XiRCON or Zirc?

I was under the impression that this came bundled with MOS, fully registered.
So you mean this isn't the case? This was the original intent, AFAIK.

Ain't AmIRC/PPC bundled with AmigaOS 4.0? This was the original intent, AFAIK.

Small suggestions for upcoming versions:

.DCC send (I'm sure this is on the todo list but...)
.Leds in users listview to represent ops, voices,... (see Amirc, Xchat)
.When an unselected tab receive new text, the title of the bar button is highlighted in white... With some bright skins it is unreadable ;( => the color should configurable
.Position of the tabs configurable (up or bottom)
.Graphic smileys ;)
.More to come ;)

Hey :)

This is how wookiechat looks on MorphOS:
http://www.amigaworld.org/MorphOS/wookiechat.png

Its not stable. Especially when opening new tabs etc. It sometimes freezes completely. And if you have 3 tabs open, .. closes the second one, then a big whole between tab 1 and 3 will be there. Not pretty.

Other than that. Well, gradients of MUI works :) Keep up the good work! And make a MorphOS exclusive version please :)

Cheers!,
Michal

Yes, definately want to support that in future. Just gotta get my routers firewall working properly. I cant dcc send from any client yet.

>.Leds in users listview to represent ops, voices,... (see Amirc, Xchat)

Nah I prefer the actual proper symbols.

>.When an unselected tab receive new text, the title of the bar button is >highlighted in white... With some bright skins it is unreadable ;( => the color >should configurable

Yes, definately. But I havent figured out how to do custom pens yet.. once thats sorted then it will be configurable, as well as differnet colours for text for different channel events, like joins/parts/quits/notice/ctcp/mode changes, etc..

>.Position of the tabs configurable (up or bottom)

It wouldnt be too hard to make this configurable but its not high on my todo list...

>.Graphic smileys ;)

Noooooooo!!!! :)

>.More to come ;)

Okay. :)

It shouldnt do that.. it works fine in WinUAE. not sure about OS4..

>Other than that. Well, gradients of MUI works :) Keep up the good work! And make >a MorphOS exclusive version please :)

I dont know if I want to keep maintaining three different versions.. (68k, OS4 and MOS).. or even just two.. (OS4 and 68k).. but we'll see how it goes. I dont have a MOS machine and I'm not keen on letting other people see my source.. partly because of embarassment about how I've coded things, and partly because I dont want anyone to steal anything or develop something from what I've done. :/

Wow, you got a lot farther than I did. It just opens its window and nothing happens here. I fired up snoopDOS but even there, nothing. It never gets as far as calling any MUI classes or anything. Hmm.. I better mess with it some more, I must be doing something wrong :-(

In reply to Comment 19 (itix):
Okay, thanks for the tip. If you're generating your menus correctly it should work fine, yes? Or do you have to add extra stuff to make it look proper on embedded menus?

If anyones interested, I've just fixed the quit/disconnection bug... when you quit IRC or got disconnected from IRC, the program would go into a neverending loop locking up the program etc.. Its fixed now though. I dont want to release another version until the enforcer hits are fixed as well though. Also I want to add popup menus and possibly preform on connect stuff for the next release.

Whenever I release a new version I get majorly demotivated.. takes me a week or so to get motivated to start implementing new stuff.. hehe.

Anyways.

Tronman: Make sure you have NList, NListtree and BetterString classes installed. Go to us.aminet.net and grab them. If it still doesnt work, can you email me and let me know? Fanks.

"If you're generating your menus correctly it should work fine, yes?" Yes it should. Looks like a MUI bug if it doesnt work. I wonder if this is same in OS4 MUI with embedded menus?
