I plan to implement support for IRC chatting in hase someday. The idea is to chat in #hase on the freenode, find some players, start the GCW and continue chatting with them inside the game!
However for this I started to add IRC chat support to my own network tool library sparrowNet. To test the IRC functionalities I made a little program called "Sissi", which stands for "Sissi Is Simple SDL IRC".
It is a very basic
IRC client for the GCW using an onscreen keyboard. If you want to chat a lot with your device, you should think about buying a pandora... However it is neat to say "hello", read what other people wrote and of course for meaningful lols and XDs. Rofl.
It supports this features
- Connecting to any irc server. At the moment only one connection to one server is possible!
- Joining a channel
- Chatting in a channel
- Opening queries
- Getting queries
- Leaving channels
- Seeing the nick list of a channel
The program is very basic, I will not improve it very much, because you know... Chatting on a gcw? I thought about implementing another approaches of entering letters, but I decided they are to complicated for non-geek users. Furthermore as said I don't want to invest too much time in such an in fact senseless application. ^^'
If you quit the application the server and user name is saved. I will probably implement at some point, that the channels are saved.
But for now:http://ziz.gp2x.de/downloads/sissi.opk
Please tell me, whether this opk works! I can't test it myself!
Thanks in advance and enjoy chatting with the GCW. ^^
