Title: Emulators Chat Client - Alpha Stage
Post by: GhostShip on November 07, 2006, 01:32:12 am
Hi folks I spoke to Emulator and he stressed that this is not ready for use yet but I know many of you like to look over new goodies etc so heres the link

http://www.emulator.altervista.org/english/wpcc.html

Quote
Changes:
+Similar Tabbing of WinMX
+Support Multichat
+Changing Nick, Line, Files runtime on chat
+Equal colors to winmx
+Some general fixes
+Ping added

NOTE:
The version alpha is very incomplete, is not advised use this for predefined Chat Client because have a lot of bugs and most functions not avalable! The Client on ScreenShot is an mix of italian-english, later will be Multilanguage.

At the time of writing the version is 0.8 and theres a screenshot of the client at the above link to take a peek at.

Keep up the good work Emulator  8)

Indeed Nylly, Emulator has a folder in the archive containing his other releases and its great to see more Italian work, they are after all a big part of the winmx global community.

http://archive.winmxworld.com/Emulator/

I,m always happy to see fresh talent joining the programming ranks and Emulator has mentioned he will be moving on to a chat server once this project is finished so we have many good things to look forward to.

I have spoken to Emulator a few days ago and version 0.10 is coming along nicely, its not ready for release yet but the screenshots I saw show that some of the more advanced features are being built in to make this a popular client in the future.

Nice work Emulator  :D

i have tested it as well, because it looks the same as winmx3.54 but without the file shares it dont lag, its fast and thats good, but theres a down side, i didnt see a favorites button, so u haver to ether add the hash in filter or search for the room each time, lets hope you are working on this as it is a fast small client.

Post by: Me Here on December 23, 2006, 01:34:24 pm
This is excellant Emulator.. I love the way it looks.. and I like the light wieght it is.. running it is a breeze..

Im curious if your able to join more then one room with it at this time.  I seem to only be able to join one and it wont let me in any others.  I also cant seem to join a room that my WinMX is already in?

Just curious about those two things.. I know this is a work in progress and its great so far Emulator ..

Great Work!!!!!!!!!Great Work!!!!!!!!!Great Work!!!!!!!!!Great Work!!!!!!!!!Great Work!!!!!!!!!

Hi all, i was testing the emulator alpha again last nite and got it into six rooms at the same time, including the WinMXWorld help channel & spoke with Tiny4eva, we agree this has potential and its fast too no lag.

One question:
Do you need to patch it or change the cache hostname?
It doesn't conenct at all :(
I have double checked the firewall.....
Also, do you need to forward any ports for it?

Cheers :P
Title: Re: Emulators Chat Client - Alpha Stage
Post by: reef on December 29, 2006, 12:38:27 pm
i had a roomie try it out with me..... we both edited the hostname to cache0.winmxgroup.com both got connected but while using the nudge in the chat
feature it crashed on me several times and didnt wanna connect each time after crashing either
..... both of us were also unable to send files to one another in the new chat feature window also.

Cool chat client tho emu... cant wait til its 100% complete   :)
Title: Re: Emulators Chat Client - Alpha Stage
Post by: GhostShip on December 29, 2006, 02:44:46 pm
For now its suggested to use the winmxgroup non-winmx patch found on their site.

http://www.winmxgroup.com/downloads/ws2_32.dll.html

Simply pop that into the follder and all should be fine.
Title: Re: Emulators Chat Client - Alpha Stage
Post by: Max™ on December 29, 2006, 03:44:54 pm
hi guys, i did pp the ws2_32dll in there the 1st day i got it, and it did connect  sometimes in 20 sec's sometimes in 10.
it is good as theres no file share so no lag, i will be looking at the completed model, but i still dont thjink it will have the fetures that robo and bendmx have.

Cheers for the new version (  0.12a ) Emulator  8)


Max, this client is certainly not trying to copy the projects at MxControl, I would have though you could guess that from looking at the style in use  :)
Once this project is completed I think we can lookforward to a new chat server also, Emulator is I think doing a great job so far.
Title: Re: Emulators Chat Client - Alpha Stage
Post by: Max™ on December 30, 2006, 06:23:56 pm
im sorry, i didnt mean that emulator was out to copy robo in any way, i meant i dont think it will rival robo as alot of ppl like robo, myself included becuase of the extra fetures and the admin capability, im sorry if i insulted anyone.
io will be looking at the new 0.12a anyway.

Post by: Max™ on January 02, 2007, 11:32:22 am
Hi All, ermm... is it me just being thick (only have 1 brain cell) or have i found a glitch, when i used the new alpha emulator i noticed that even if i click the dark/light settings button or edited the colours manually i got exactly the same result, black black background or white background showed no text visible, either black, white or any colours even tho the color.dat file was in the folder and yes so was the english.txt file, i even tried adding the new alpha to the previous alpha folder and used the previous alpha's colour.dat file and still blank screen.
if some1 else has the same prob then we know its a glich, if not, im a total plank & cant see what im not doing

+Now can connect to your preferred Primary

The chat looks good but dont see the point in it :shock:. Seen this twice now, First FXserve and now this, Why choose to do somethin so stupid as restriceting your access down to one primary, unless you want to pick yourself which again is pointless and use's no less BW.
Stupid idea but hey. Enlighten me  :D
Title: Re: Emulators Chat Client - Alpha Stage
Post by: Bearded Blunder on May 10, 2007, 02:12:02 pm
I didn't think it was pointless when I was using this option with robomx when winmx first went down & robo had yet to be patched. 
That aside, it's not completely pointless to pick your own primary, if you do so, you know for certain that it's not going to reset midway through a conversation in private messages & possibly break communication as a result.

Now it would be nice to see you retract calling a potentially useful feature "stupid" & by association the programmer with it.
Title: Re: Emulators Chat Client - Alpha Stage
Post by: KM on May 10, 2007, 02:38:57 pm
The ability to select your own WinMX as your primary is useful, but I have to agree that manually selecting another primary is rather pointless - however of course the ability to do the first sort of gives the ability to do the second as a package deal...
Title: Re: Emulators Chat Client - Alpha Stage
Post by: Emulator ® on May 10, 2007, 03:19:20 pm
Mmmmh is simply an option... you can disable if you want :)

Note: new version is relased (alpha 13.1) is corrected a little "bug"... the Main bar of bottom use a WinMX 3.53 Bar and this containim the statistics of peer chaches... please update it :)

Thanks.

This program looks great, looks like the chat client that I've always wanted. Looks very much like WinMX, with a few great features. But one huge draw back...

I can't seem to get the damn thing to run at all. I start it, and it's just left in the background. No form opens up at all. I have to close it through the task manager. I'm running XP Pro, I closed down some of my security programs to see if that helped, but it still did the same thing. I'll be sure to keep tabs though, maybe a newer version will work.

It worked for me very well...

A great program :D

ran fine here i like it, just cant see a proper use for choosing one primary, apart from yourself. Bearded shh. It was constructive crytism and asking to be enlightened. notice the smiley's, i never mentioned anything about emulator. i have been trying this chat out since his first compiled slightly crashy release. Notice nowhere me say anything about him.

Keep up the good work anyway Emulator, i like it and look forward to it growing into something more.
