I haven't tried this update yet but I find WookieChat VERY useful.

The only thing I've foung that I can crash it with is large copy & pastes.


If anyone finds the program useful to them, How about chucking a few bob Jahcs way.

Where do I get it? Also... and this is key to my needs. Is it GUI based or is it CLI based?

Hi JAHC;

Well my copy was a little obstinate starting up? It wouldn't connect to AmigaWorld. Hmmm? I had the impression that a window flashed open and closed
trying to connect to server. Ran v1.3 and it opened fine; closed it; ran v1.4
and it finally opened. Wow, look at those colors Nice!

It works here...

Snuffy ;_)

I was about to get it and try it under MorphOS. I can write another article for you if you'd like as long as it runs. I'll let you all know tomorrow. I am on a 24hr shift at work tonight.

Ok, it seems more stable than old versions...but I don't understand why it doesn't use :

1) lamp class for OP and Voice;
2) contextmenu (popupmenu.library) also for tab (close/move to another window);
3) drag&drop for tab to move it out of principal window and open a new window;
4) optional button to have near the commands which we ever use;
5) urltext class for url and email...;
6) the bar class for tab: in this way each tab could have an icon and it could be moore configurable
7) when I resize WChat window the scroller should automatically scroll down thus it follow the last written phrases;
8) when I pass from a tab to another it wold be more useful if WChat automatically select the string in which I write to post my reply in a chat...;
9) add /nick command ;
10) add a minimum window when I iconify wookiechat window to permitt to see if anyone write....;

In addition to this, I haven't prove send/receive yet, it perfectly works with mIRC users? And if I have a router (I have it;-D) it is able to find my real ip for send/receive (AmIRC does manually it from Setting/setup/Network/hostname)

Ehmm have you see that when wookiechat window is iconified when you uniconify it appears first the setting colour window and after the wookiechat window?

10x for your work!

That would be good, thanks. Nice to see a viewpoint from "the other side" as it were

Well I was really hoping someone else would offer to do it as I already have articles to write/co write. There must be someone else out there, it only need be 500 words or even less!

We are experiencing problems with the editor@totalamiga.org e-mail address (being looked into), could you send it to me directly? (my e-mail address is on my profile page). Thanks dude
