Chat Room trial

Posted 28 April 2010 - 12:20 PM

Hi,

I have been developing an online chat room to basically secure my knowledge in multiplayer room creation and would like some people to test my program to ensure that it does indeed work across the internet. Here is the link to the download, just double click the .exe in the zip file and it should run, then (as long as the server is running at that time) you should be able to type your message into the program. The text should appear at the bottom of your screen as you type and when you press enter the text string should be sent to the server which will in tern send it to all the client programs.

The server supports up to 32 players but considering the server is a not-very-powerful laptop it will likely crash before this number is reached! Client frame rate is based on server frame rate so the more clients the slower they all run.

Should you receive an error message which contains something similar to d3dx9_35.dll then it is because you haven't got DirectX 9.0c august 2007 edition installed on the machine. This can be found on MS's website for free. Would love to hear feedback regarding my program but remember that it is only a proof of concept so it's not meant to be flashy with a million features. In short, it's no MSN Messenger!

Thanks in advance

bump due to poor... non existent testing numbers. Please test my program! :(

EDIT: Just an added point in which this program is lacking - it currently has no shift/caps lock capabilities. There is also a new download link.

you seriously posted that without testing it??? I mean, if anyone were able to test this, it's someone has used DarkGDK as they will have the DirectX SDK! What is the point in this section of DIC when no-one downloads the files??

A better question is why wouldn't it work over the internet?
