The new version of the chatbox is out! This one's Java based and using pure IRC - it's a lot faster and more reliable that the old php-based one. You can find the link below, and soon I'll add it to the navbar section too.


Link: The Sons of Seasons' Webchat
A few hints:
Arrow The forum rules are in effect in the chatroom, where applicable Smile

Arrow Don't forget to change your nickname when you enter, for you will join as Anonymous, or Anon Idea

Arrow You can also join the channel using any other irc client on the irc.umbranet.org server on port 6667, channel #sonsofseasons

Arrow If you want to keep your nickname for yourself in the IRC server, you'll have to register it. Do the following:
Join the chat
Enter your nickname
Click the Infos button to get to the server window
Now type: /msg nickserv register [your password] [your email]
You should be notified that "An authentication code for your nickname has been sent to [your email]."
You should receive a mail with an auth code. Copy the whole line that says /msg NickServ AUTH [some code] and paste it in the Infos window then hit enter. You should get:
Authentication succeeded; your nickname registration is now complete.
Congratulations, you've registered.
From this point on, whenever you enter the chat, you'll have to supply your password to identify yourself. Do so by clicking on the Infos button and typing /ns identify [password]
Hint: you need to register to be able to see the channels list. If you don't know what this is, then you probably don't need it Smile

If you're a beginner, I'd suggest using the webchat - it should save you lots of time.
If you prefer a standalone program for IRC access, I'd recommend either mIRC (latest) or X-Chat (latest).

The old chatbox will still be open until most people have noticed the new one Smile

Again, if you encounter any problems, please report in this thread. Thanks!

We're just working on it. Indeed the new chat system is confusing and the beginning conversations almost ceased completely. Hope it's fixed soon.

Just a quick note that the old chatbox's back, until the issues with the java irc client are resolved Smile

Java seems to be problematic for a lot of users/browsers, so we brought the old chatbox back... The IRC channel is still there though, any irc-savvy fans are more than welcome there Smile

I have a suggestion for the chat...

It is called Cbox and it makes a chat box quiet commonly used here in hungarian websites and forums like this (proboard, suddenlaunch) It is easy to handle and it can be placed on the forum. So it does not open a new window.

Here is the link: http://www.cbox.ws/

And here are just some quick sample I collected from RPG forums... They are in hungarian but u can see the chatbox anyway on the bottom of the page

The new chatbox seems cool, Kitikri, as far as i could see Smile
So what did you and Oliver decide? Which one shall we keep and which not? cause right now there are 3 chat systems on the forum and a new member (or a long time no visit member) may get a little confused Wink

just tried the new one (the 'Cbox'). Sorry to ask, but since i didn't use the chat systems often enough, i can't really see the difference confused3 ... i mean, the chatbox you installed previously (the java one, linked in the navbar) did seem to me more high-tech, but what's the difference between this Cbox here and the default forum chatbox, on the bottom of the index page?
i liked this one. a lot of people are used to it, because it's the same than on any other phpbb forum, and it's more convivial too, imo (you can find the same smileys you already use when writing your posts... i miss them on this new Cbox, lol)

on MSN, i was talking about using an external chat system because i thought Oliver wanted a chatbox to be added on the website itself (like on Epica's). But on the forum? can't really see the interest. Sorry if I missed something confused2

In the end I'd like to have a chat box like the one on the Kam forum. But Krastin said the whole forum had to be renewed so I am a bit hesitant.

Renew? Like in another software? Would that mean all the posts we wrote so far would be lost? affraid That would be very sad. No

I miss the smilies too!! Crying or Very sad Well the old chat system was always lagging, mixing up our posts and it logged o us out or dsconnected us after 5 minutes randomly and in less than 5 mintes when we didnt answere. pale Hmmm I donno I think people maybe to lazy to get in the old chatbox Suspect
