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.
