Post SS Web Chat
Hey Guys,

I've spent the last couple days or so converting parts of the external client's code and adding some new UI to make it into a brand new web chat. I've simplified the UI a ton and made it pretty similar to the SS chat itself. It hasn't been thoroughly tested so this is a beta of sorts.

You can access it here:
http://www.starsonata.com/webchat/ (login with your SS credentials, but it will log you out of game if its the same account)

Features that may not instantly be apparent:
- Click name in chat to PM
- Double click name in team list to PM
- Up arrow in the input field will bring last chats, down will go back down the history of input.

Known Issues:
- Some / commands won't work (/friends for example)
- The first closeable PM tab has a weird close icon sometimes.

Future Development:
- Logoff button (can be done by closing or refreshing the window)
- Sound when receive PM in unfocused tab
- Downloadable version?


Feedback welcome. I hope you enjoy this better then the external client since there is no download and its much simpler to use. Also it's been tested on Linux (had a bug in Flash's linux implementation we had to work around) and it worked.

Requires Flash 9 or later.

It's "/f". :P
Anyways, really nice work, I like it. What did you code it in? Java/Flash/Ajax?

Its built in flex which outputs flash.

PS. Fixed the sending a blank message issue if you refresh.

I think this messed up my character Zocon. I can no longer log on to him after using the web chat with him. Though I can still login on the web chat using him.

*After logging into the Chat Client on him, then on the test server I was able to again login on him on live server. So problem fixed for now.

Very nice! One question tho' .. Does it need same port open as SS client does?

Reason for this question is that i can't make it work on some comps that i have on my disposal.

Heh I guess it's a little strange for devs to be complementing each other but, nicely done. :D

It looks great, but I think I prefer the downloadable chat client for now. =p

Customization ftw!

It works pretty much the same way as the SS Client in terms of how it connects and send messages, so yes, it needs the port open.

The external one allows you to monitor multiple channels in one tab, has font customization, etc. It's more complicated but does have a few extra options.
