Casual Gameplay Chat


Comments (18) | Views (1,060)

Casual Gameplay ChatWe've just launched our own IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channel, which you can get to by clicking "Chat" in the menu above. That will take you to an open source Java client and automatically log you onto the chat server being hosted at Casual Gameplay. If you prefer to use your own IRC client, then point it to irc.jayisgames.com and join channel #casualgameplay. See ya there! =)

Note: When launching the Java applet by clicking Chat in the menu available on every page of JIG, you will get a dialog requesting that you accept the digitally signed application. This is to allow the application to communicate with our IRC server only. It is signed by Philippe Detournay, the author of the chat client application, PJIRC. While the certificate may have expired, we assure you that launching the chat app is perfectly safe.

The Java client is just the easiest and most convenient way to access our IRC channel, but it's not the best client to use. Here are some recommended clients. Choose one based on your OS:

So, come on and join us! Don't be shy. We have a great bunch of folks that hang out in there everyday and who ensure a family-friendly, safe chatting environment for everyone. Come talk about your favorite game(s), or help us solve the latest game posted on JIG. Whatever your gaming pleasure, you're sure to find someone there who shares your joy. =)

sounds cool-- but is it all the time or just once? (and what are we chatting about?) games, duh... :P

It should be functional all the time, Allegra. =D

You could also try Gabbly for those who have problems with the Java applet.

We're monitoring the irc channel, but we really don't have the resources available to support more than that, unfortunately.

Would love to see people in there more so I can get more suggestions for Anya (a resident bot).

First off I have some tips!
1) When it finally connects please change your nick using the method Anya provides you with. ("/nick NEWNAMEHERE" without quotes)
2) There is a jayisgames.com search function on Anya. Just type in "$jig gamename" or "$jayis gamename" without quotes to try it out. :)
Additional Anya comands.

Landon, I'm just curious: what does "Anya" stand for? You know, in Hungarian this is how they spell "Mother", so I wondered if the similarity is more than coincidence... ;-)

Boten Anna + Tanya :P

I'm also unable to connect as well, must be the server itself, I'll keep trying though.

If you point your irc client to irc.jayisgames.com, you should be able to connect with a temporary server in the meantime.

Jamscone seems to be down for the count (again).

hmmm.. doesnt seem to be working for me
cannot connect still.

Firewall?

I'm sure you're not alone, though, as only a few have popped in over the last couple of hours.

Still, there are several of us in there at the moment, so perhaps it's a DNS thing. Email me and I'll give you the IP address to connect to instead of the domain.

In case if you haven't tried this in the server window, type /server irc.jayisgames.com if you are unable to connect through the jamscone server.

It sounds so cool.

Hey could one of the moderators please un-ban me from the server? I've been off for several months now. Thanks in advance.
