    Skin tutorial
    Module tutorial

    How to get started with modules:
    First, open any conversation window and type /help
    this prints out a list of available commands. Next, check what filename the module you want to load has in the module folder. For example, the Logger.class module.
    In TinyChum, type now /load Logger . It should then load the module and print a confirm message.
    And that's it! The module is now successfully running and will be automatically loaded on startup.

    What the modules provided in the package do:
    Logger: Creates logfiles of your conversations.
    BasicQuirks: Basic quirk functions like in PC Main.
    BLUH: Provides a silly command that prints out a specified amount of "BLUH"s.
    Exploder: Provides the /explode command that explodes your computer and notifies your chums accordingly.
    SendAll: Send a message to all chums you have a conversation with.

    How to use the commands:
    Always check /help first. It should give enough information to get started.

    Dev Team:
    -Shinmera
    -Armada



    Pesterchum MAIN:
    This client is OUTDATED. I do not recommend using it as it is showing it's age and has a lot of bugs and problems that won't be fixed for quite some time if ever.
    DOWNLOAD


    Q&A:
    Q: How do I run it?
    A: For windows, just run the run.cmd . For Linux, just run the run . On Mac, double click the pesterchum.jar .

    Q: How should I test it?
    A: Start out by adding some chums to your chumroll (whoever you know is online atm). Feel free to contact me when I'm online tho (seriousProgrammer)!

    Q: Quirks manager? Whut? Search string?? whaaaa?
    A: Lookie here

    Q: How do I delete a chum from my chumroll?
    A: Just select it and press the delete key on your keyboard.

    Q: Can I change my color?
    A: YES! Just click on the button next to your chumhandle

    Q: I did something stupid. The application won't close/start/whatever.
    A: No worries! First, if it's still running, kill it with the task manager. Then, just delete the pesterchum.cfg . That should fix it.

    Q: I'm getting the error "javaw not found." What do I do?
    A: Read this post.

    Q: Is it compatible with Armada's pesterchum app?
    A: Yes it is. To a certain level. Armada ceased developing and we joined forces because combined we are CAPTAIN PESTERCHUM! (someone needs to make a flash with that)

    Q: But... Is your server reliable?
    A: Yes, very. It's not a farm of servers so no netsplits possible. I have 5tb traffic per month, that should suffice. And the server has a very nice speed and is up 24/7.

    Q: How did you make it?
    A: Written in Java with help of the pIRCBot API. The initial app was made a week before Armada's but since it was missing the moods, I didn't release it.

    Q: Is there support? Is it openSource?
    A: Yes and yes, the source is in the jar files (PC 1.6 and higher). TC is NOT opensource.

    Q: I wanna join!
    A: Talk to me first (pm or irc), give me a reason why you want to join and what you could add to the app. Also, you have to have knowledge of Java.

    Q: Can I use your source to build trollian / my own version / whatever ?
    A: Yes, but you have to license it under the GPL too and please, don't sell it as something completely new when it's just a new skin. Give us some credit.

    Q: Can I suggest features?
    A: Sure! Just don't go out of focus since we really tried to keep the app as close to the original as possible!

    Q: FFFFUUUUCK It's not working! (Some error) I'm on a mac!
    A: Make sure that the Java 6 runtime is at the top of the list in the Java Preferences app.

    Q: Where can I post my chum handle?
    A: HERE
    Also, the new fora have a profile field for your chumhandle. Check it out.
    A notice of global importance: Do not add more than 30-40 people to your chumroll because their initial moods won't update due to the message length limit!


    Q: I have a problem/bug/request/question/praise.
    A: Please, consult the Tracker for stuff like this. We won't be able to help you here as well as there. Also, please always use the search before submitting something new.


    Well, have fun using it!
    Thanks to all the guys who supported us during the development and gave us some valuable information as well as requests and bug notices.

    In order to set the handle, set a name and press enter. To delete chums, select and press the delete key on the keyboard.

    Got it up and running and all, personally. But I sadly see no way to change text colour.
    Insert something interesting here by the power of your own imagination, 'cause you sure as hell won't get that from me.

    Just the Java Runtime JRE. Well, you need to add some chums first anyway. Click on "add chum" and type in a chumhandle. It should add it to the list.

    Quick question regarding Armada's app, and posting here for all to see as well:
    What level of functionality are we going to see here?
    Full, or is his special sub-protocol not going to work?

    Oh, derp. Sorry, didn't see that. Fittingly, it chose my prefered colour, dark red/maroon.

    I talked to Armada yesterday and we decided to make both clients fully compatible. (They are now too)
    The only problem right now is that this client is NOT connected to the skaia IRC net as Armada's is.
    I decided not to connect to skaia since I had some problems with it: I couldn't join the chatroom as regular user to test stuff and the connection limit was set to one so I couldn't test it with myself.
    So, practically with the mentioned stuff above, my server only has advantages to skaianet.

    Re: Pesterchum 1.2

    It could be useful to include sounds or to have the uh... thing on the taskbar? ... flash when a new message has come. At least I don't think it does that... I haven't been watching excessively I guess. Sounds could be nice though; nothing obnoxious, just something simple that says "hey, you have a new message" when it's first received. I do know those were part of pesterchum in the adventure so it'd still be canon. You could grab the sounds themselves actually.

    Double click so it shows the content and drag it to a destination in another folder.
