The idea- no, the vision behind GlobalChat, is being able to be in one server, and having the ability to talk to your friend in another server. Or even hook into HeroChat and have a global chat channel that spans across hundreds of servers. If anybody has a _good_ webserver that they would allow GlobalChat to run on, that would be great. My webserver is tiny and pretty slow. Speed is important. The webserver needs PHP and MySQL. What is GlobalChat? As of right now, GlobalChat allows you to chat across all servers with GlobalChat installed. What will GlobalChat become? Checking online players of every server* Inboxes that are persistent across every server you go to* Messaging to your friends no matter what server they are in* ..and more. *GlobalChat must be installed. Anyone have a better name than GlobalChat? It's going to have more than global chatting, so it needs something more suitible. Current progress: Successfully sent an HTTP request to a php file, and got info back from it. Messages get added to the database New: lerned to sanitize my input n00b New: Got rid of all chat lag by sending the HTTP request on a separate thread It's goin' good so far. Current progress: Successfully sent an HTTP request to a php file, and got info back from it. Messages get added to the database lerned to sanitize my input n00b Got rid of all chat lag by sending the HTTP request on a separate thread New: Successfully retrieved chat messages from the database and displayed them on the server. Yeah, so making good progress. I've got to think this next part out though. How can I make it only display messages that haven't been displayed yet? (it gets messages from the database every 10 seconds atm) Got the global chat system working. I just need to make it so that it doesn't display messages from in your server. Ex: (this is what i don't want to happen) Joe: hey guys wats up Bob: not much [GlobalChat] Joe: hey guys wats up [GlobalChat] Bob: not much Does anybody know of a way to identify each server uniquely?
