ChateX (with Giants Citizen Kabuto server browser)

Post by eXistenZ » Sat Jun 06, 2009 12:17 am

ChateX is an alternative for GameSpy Arcade. It only supports Giants Citizen Kabuto and it only works with the 1.5 patch.

Right click the listbox from the top to create/join a server or double click a server to join one, you can also set the game path manually from ChateX - Options menu.

If you find any bugs or if you just don't like something please post here.

Thanks a lot to Tasiin!

Download for ChateX GCKSB 1.02: http://chatex.zxq.net/chatex%20gcksb.html

Please note that the program can only be exited from ChateX - Exit menu and not from the close button of the main window (using the close button minimizes the program and hides it to system tray).

Updated the link above with a new version.

New in 0.04:
- Fixed the crash when you would use the file browser when receiving a file.. and many other small bug fixes
- Code improvements
- Added a window where you can set the server name and max players when creating a game server
- Added a message in the main chat when you create a game server or join one (please let me know if this is annoying and should be removed or not)
- Removed the installer (it was useless)

Please post your ideas if you have any good ones :P.

Cool. :O

I half-expected you to have given up on this project, Ex :D

Glad to see Giants is still (more or less?) thriving ^^
