How hard would it be to add a minimal IRC client to the lobby?

Maybe integrate it with a forum login so your nick is the same as your forum/in-game name?
In general, if you see glowing, pulsating things in the game, you should click on them.

It's just an idea. I don't have any idea how IRC works and with cam4/Oblivion/Fallout 3 taking up my time I couldn't really implement it.

Its just that I think it would be a cool new feature :wink:

I've made a lobby client, but with xmpp protocol (jabber) for my diploma work. It was kinda hard coded & worked not well enough for public use. So I've started new one with IRC but using already made irc_lib (martyr-0.4 or irclib-1.10 hav'nt decided yet).
But I can resume to xmpp client if you guys prefer that one.

The most work will be to make a gui for the game.

I believe Red Eclipse has an irc client based on Enet which consists of a header and cpp pair only, which may or may not be useful if one of you take on this project.

Example:
Since most people I have played with in T1 + low oil map and lose are going to say that winner is cheating, Then he will tell everyone via this chatbox so there will be a fight everyday in chatbox with this simple matter.
what should we do? :)

irc & xmpp protocols has an option to "ignor user", so you won't be reading any annoying massages from that user anymore. As for cheating -it wrong topic. Cheaters detector is game-client side I think.

For what it is worth, I thought about adding a external client to launch Warzone, instead of what we have now, I thought it would have been a better way to setup games with a IRC client built in.

I guess you can say that idea was shot down for the most part.
and it ends here.

If you want code to manage mods I can clean up the back end of my mod manager and make it into a C++ DLL :geek: I've been meaning to rewrite it for a while now.

Managing mods & map files isn't hard to make, but I'll get in touch if I would need it. Thanks. However I'm making new web design for my site, old PHPFusion kinda bored me much, so lobby client is in a hold state.

:)

Yes Yes... :hmm:

Fastdeath how is your work going ?? :) and Terminators ? :)

I think the mini IRC window idea is great !

I would also suggest the chat window in lobby itself to be modified a little bit.. for example by adding a litle more space for viewing the information already typed, when 8 people and now 10 ! types at one time it jumps like turbo cangaroo.. :P

Also some subtle eye candy improvements would be nice :)
