NG Chat+

2013-07-26 12:57:29 by Kenney

If you're a regular in the NG chat you might have heard about NG Chat+.

What is NG Chat+?
It's a Flash version of the original Newgrounds chat with some new features. It uses less bandwidth on your side and doesn't even need a server (due to P2P technology). Features include clicking usernames for their userpage, smoother chatting, emoticons, sound on mentions, local timestamps, spam and flood filters and settings to adjust all these features.

So, can I use NG Chat+ right now?
Yes and no, currently it's in beta and it's invite-only. Don't worry though, if you're a NG member for longer than a year you can reply to this post or send me a PM to gain access.

When will it be public then?
I'm aiming for a mid-August launch. The chat will be released in the portal. To my knowledge it won't be replacing the old chat.

What other features are planned?
Customizable backgrounds, channels, private chatting, chat logs (+ local chat log saving), choosing name color, an option to tag yourself as "AFK" and possibly more. A bit of video streaming wouldn't hurt either ;)

So, why are you doing this exactly?
I found out about the P2P technology (see point 1) and thought it would be fun to create. So just like Pico's School DX, this is a labor of love.

So is this official, as in the Newgrounds guys are commissioning you or otherwise authorizing you to create this? Or is it just you personally, for yucks? Because if I remember your track record right, with you, it's usually you personally, for yucks.

Either way good luck, looks nifty. I'm with the other person, Newgrounds IM would be pretty sick.

Kenney responds:

Yeah it's just me fucking around, nobody asked me to do this. Nobody wanted it to happen, but I made it happen.

Someone was talking about it when I was on the chat this week.
I'm a regular there, can I have access? :)

Kenney responds:

I've sent an owl with the invite.

I'd love to try it out, but I'm not big on those emoticons. I'm quite fond of the lack of in-text emoticons on NG.

Kenney responds:

All features have settings, don't like emoticons? Turn them off. Also, you're IN!

I'm not sure if this will be possible, but will there be a feature where you can send and invitation to people who are online on your NG friends list?

Kenney responds:

Nope, not possibly. Can't plug into any of NG's own systems :(
