New chat for Simutrans
« on: November 05, 2008, 06:41:56 PM »
Hi All.

I have build a new chat for Simutrans. This is only a free site without a guarantee for accessibility. But it works only with flash. Give a name and send it. And chat with other about Simutrans.

The chat link is at the top right. The page is partly in english and german.

http://simutrans.carookee.de/

I will see on it, when I have time. Hope you have a look too.

Nice! But how big is the chance to see someone else inside ?

I'm on-line there right now.

EDIT:

I'm not more.

Anyway, I'd like to say that a chat would be useful to save the forum from long discussions where members ask for a support.

Sojo, let me point something out:

What is that "Simutrans pak96.comic" for? Is it just to run the chat?

Plus... I'm on-line again. ;D

EDIT: "Less"... I'm not on-line more.  :(

It's only the name of this site. I'm not the maintainer for Simutrans, I'm the maintainer for pak96.comic and so I have choose this name. Should I use a other name?

The question was - why also forum, if only chat is needed?

This chat is only a tool from this forum. The Forum is the mainpart of this service. But I don't need it this time.

I think already exist an irc channel in quakenet about Simutrans, but I don't know if is still active...

I've also found this about a hidden chat in the German forum thanks to Benjad, which I guess is the same mentioned in the previous link...
http://archive.forum.simutrans.com/topic/01486.0/index.html

IMHO, wouldn't be a bad idea to create an IRC channel, although since the instant messenger exists is a bit outdated. It's another way to give help support, sometimes faster than the forum.

If you have a FireFox with ChatZilla, you can comfortably connect to #Simutrans IRC without any other chat program installed in your computer.  ;D
