  1. A while ago, someone mentioned that bot hosters will end up leaving, and that it would be a good thing if bot hosters could make a tutorial to explain how to create a bot from scratch. Since the main tool used to understand how xat works is considered a virus by most antiviruses, the project could not be endorsed by xat, and we were asked to use a different tool. In the end, nobody did it. Such a guide would probably not be endorsed by xat, because it encourages those who follow it to break the terms: "You will not modify, adapt, translate, or reverse engineer any portion of the service" (oh, and you're supposed to be supervised by your parents if you're under 18) (Don't take the rest of this post for yourself.) On second thought I think it's a very good thing: Runing a bot hoster requires a patience and skill. We've seen enough ephemeral hosters. Hosters that were run by greedy users who ran a script from the internet because "those guys make money". I don't want to see more of them. What's the point of offering a low quality service? If you couldn't figure out how to adapt a bot from an outdated source code -you get a bonus point if you start from scracth-, how will you add features? How will you fix bugs? You won't. And it will die. I spent countless hours working on the first Ocean versions, looking at packets, replaying them, emulating the behaviour of a real client, trying to figure out why chat kicks me out randomly, what E25 stands for… It teaches you a lot about how networking xat, and its protocol works. It's not something you can learn by watching a video. By following a tutorial you're going straight to the point, never failing. Poking at stuff and watching what happens is definitely the best way to learn. You have no idea how stupid and stubborn people can be. No really. Even when Ocean was a free service people were impatient and constantly complaining. ( This is the main reason I stopped working on Ocean. Why would you spend most of your free time working for ungrateful people? However, if you still want to run your company, keep in mind that it's all fun and games until they demand features. The great lines are: - Learn a programming language - Learn how networking works - Reverse and understand xat's protocol - Emulate the client's behaviour - Add features one at a time Good luck.

  4. Meh... first off, ! is how you use bot commands. Second of all, it's very easy to find out how long someone has left on a temp, just look at the events page and see when the temp started, how long they're temp for and figure out how many hour's its been. I rather xat focus on other more important things. Maybe bot companies could implement something.

  5. Back with a new game suggestion. I was bored and looking hangjinx that was released, it gave me an idea of new game that could have xat with Gamebot. I think we should have a game called "Guess the word" or simply "hangman" (If there is no copyright). The goal is to find the most words in a defined time. The first user who found the most words wins the game and the price (if set). For example: if the time is 60 seconds, the user has to find the most words in 60 seconds. When the game started, everyone has the same word, and when the word is guessed, a new word is chosen at random until the time is up. I made a "preview" application that could be used for the game. Of course the words to guess will be drawn from a txt file or directly added to the Gamebot. (to prevent cheating. ) My preview (Btw, the keyboard is from google and all with photoshop) : I hope that you will love .. if you have any comments, feel free to tell them. (I know bots have it, but it would be more cool to have the same game for general people with a prize.) Edit : To edit the power option, it should looking like that (An idea) : Some people will say that people will use inappropriate words, but if the admins are smart, they will be able to check the list of words and remove the inappropriate words.

  7. the cookie is bigger than the post and it scared me a little. first and foremost *function(s) The smiley preview - I like. Suggested smilies - I like. Copy option - I like. Smiley to coverup cusses - Cute, I like. Autocorrect - I don't like, it's hard enough typing the word 'xat' on my phone without it autocorrecting to cat. Don't think xat needs an autocorrect, it's not a formal chat service. admins should hire you as their official twenty-first century social media advisor.

  9. well that depends tbh, when we change time zone, this could get people confused by an hour, I know an hour isn't much but still, I think we need a countdown somewhere along the lines

  10. Fun fact: This is the loading screen for xat on ActionScript 3.0. When ActionScript 2.0 was used, there was a different loading screen.
