    UPDATED CANON HANDLE RULES


    CANON HANDLES AND YOU
    The folks at ABT and SGRILL have come up with a set of guidelines called "CANON HANDLES AND YOU." It's for people chatting with canons or wanting to roleplay as them. It's a very good set of rules and if followed, will make everyone's roleplay experience that much better!

    http://nova.xzibition.com/~illuminat...lesandyou.html

    Note that these are not rules, but mere guidelines. Feel free to link this to other people, too!

    3.41 8eta!!!!!!!!

    Mac Version!
    This is an experimental Mac version of PC! It's way better than 2.5 at least, so Mac users you can finally join the party!

    Ladies and gentlemen of the forums, I present to you a brand new Pesterchum made entirely from scratch; a better Pesterchum than you thought possible:

    PESTERCHUM 3.14

    This Pesterchum has got it all! It features:

    * Basic Pesterchum features (chumroll, pestering, etc.)
    * Hide offline users!
    * Tabbed conversations -- toggleable!
    * Themes - vastly customizable! Make your own or copy another!
    * Quirks - basic quirk options and some new features: random replace and an auto-mispeller
    * Profile Switching - Switch between saved profiles, loading the quirks and theme for each profile
    * Memos - Memos act almost exactly like the ones in the comic and allow you to appear at multiple time frames in the chat
    * Block list
    * Userlist - see who's online right now!
    * Add/block users directly from a conversation, the userlist, or the memo userlist
    * Logging - Logs output bbcode (for easy log posting), html, and plain text
    * Idling - You can set yourself idle manually, and the computer will set it for you after 10 minutes.
    * Improved /me. Any letters immediately following /me will be converted: "/me's computer exploded!" will show "-- ghostDunk's computer exploded! --"
    * Hyperlinks! Now if someone types http://whatever it will turn into a link you can actually click!
    * Memo links. Link your chums to your memos.
    * Smilies. We've added about 30-40 smilies from the forums.
    * Submit logs directly to the Pesterchum QDB -- just highlight the section of the conversation and right-click and choose to send!

    PLEASE: Don't add your friends to your trollslum or chumpdump! That is the BLOCK LIST!

    Enough yammerin! Here's the download link:

    If you already have Pesterchum installed: http://www.adorabloodthirsty.com/pe2...14.1update.exe

    If you have not yet installed Pesterchum: http://www.adorabloodthirsty.com/pe2...chum3.14.1.exe

    ZIP file: http://www.adorabloodthirsty.com/pe2...chum3.14.1.zip (FOR THOSE THAT KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING)

    Source (for linux users): http://tinyurl.com/pesterchum3-14-1

    As always the cutting edge source is on the git page (see the development thread).

    Mac users - sorry!! I don't have a Mac and I couldn't find a Mac developer. We've got some progress made on packaging it for a Mac, but we need help! Visit the Development Thread to help out: http://www.mspaforums.com/showthread...lopment-thread

    Install Instructions:

    Updating from 3.14 on Windows: Run the .exe update file. For troubleshooting, see page 28 of this thread!

    New Windows Users: Run the .exe file. It will install to C:\Pesterchum by default; don't install it in Program Files or any system location, though!

    Linux: Untar the source code and run the pesterchum shell script:
    Code:
    $ tar -zxf pesterchum3.14-src.tar.gz
    $ cd pesterchum
    $ ./pesterchum
    You must have PyQt4 (version >= 4.6) and pygame installed. If you don't have them, install them:

    Debian: apt-get install python-qt4 python-pygame
    Arch: pacman -S python2-pyqt python-pygame
    Gentoo: gentoo instructions: emerge -av dev-python/PyQt4 dev-python/pygame; may need to do echo media-libs/sdl-image png >> /etc/portage/package.use (thanks Geekthras)

    Beta testers: If your pesterchum.js file reads: "server":"irc.tymoon.eu"
    change it to: "server": "irc.mindfang.org"

    If you don't know where that is, go to your Logs directory (in the start menu) and go a directory up.

    Are you EXCITED and can't wait for people to start pestering you? Put your chumhandle in the ChumHandles thread: http://www.mspaforums.com/showthread...75-ChumHandles

    Still not convinced? Check out these sweet screenshots:

    Pesterchum 2.5:


    My pesterhandle is ghostDunk! Feel free to pester me anytime!

    The development team was myself (programming) and grimlive (aquaMarinist) who did all the fantastic artwork.

    This is the thread for questions about usage! If you need help, ask! If you find a bug, you can post it here, or if you're really cool, make a bug report on our github: https://github.com/illuminatedwax/pesterchum/issues

    or just clone it straight from git: git://github.com/illuminatedwax/pesterchum.git

    This thread is also for posting cool quirks you've discovered or awesome themes that you've made! We'll put links to user created themes up in the OP here!

    If you want to contribute, Pesterchum 3.14 is OPEN SOURCE! Just head on over to the development thread! Discussion of how to make themes should go in that thread!

    Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14: Brand new Pesterchum! From scratch!

    TUTORIAL

    Here's some tips to help you get started:

    * You can import your old Pesterchum contacts by going to CLIENT->IMPORT and opening your pesterchum.cfg file. This is usually in the 2.5 base directory or in Tinychum's data folder.

    * Some themes can be confusing if you haven't used the program
    already! Some hints:

    Trollian: Moods are set by clicking the timelines, and you can add chums by clicking "Chumproll." Moods correspond to the troll that would most likely exhibit them. You can go offline by hitting the "Timelines" menu bar. THE CHUMPDUMP IS NOT WHERE YOU ADD PEOPLE. THAT WILL BLOCK THEM.

    Gold: Add chums by hitting the two chumpeoples in the upper left corner. Go offline by clicking the "CHUMHANDLE:" label.

    Enamel: Add chums by hitting the "CHUMROLL" label. Go offline by clicking the upper left hand corner.

    * Right-click is your friend! There are useful right click options on the chumroll, by clicking the chumhandle in a conversation, online userlist, or the list of memo browsers.

    Q: I keep getting the error message "The application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect"!
    A: Try downloading both: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en...ang=en&id=3387 and http://www.microsoft.com/download/en...ang=en&id=5582

    Q: I opened up PC, closed it, and now it says my user name is taken!
    A: The "X" doesn't close the program, just minimizes it to your system tray. To exit the program you must go to Client -> Exit.

    QUIRKS

    There are six kinds of quirks! I'll teach you how to use them all! (In this section, I will use quotes ("") around things so it's clearer to see exactly what to type! Don't include these quotes when using these examples!

    Also, note that your quirks will not work until you save them by hitting "OK" on the Quirk window.

    This is amazing.
    Couple things though.
    The memo window seems to be bugged slightly; it shows up as gray instead of orange.
    Also on the topic of memos, a tickbox to disable timeframes would be pretty nifty.

    I was just putting my chumhandle and it says that it was already taken! Who's using it >:O? Or it is a bug?

    EDIT: Forget it, I was connected on my chumhandle of pesterchum 2.5 i'm so sorry xD. Btw, very nice program :3

    What theme and what OS?

    Also I don't really want to remove the timeframes; they're part of the memos, and it's better if everyone sees the same thing.

    Every theme. Windows Vista. The header bar that has the memo name and borders of each text box are colored properly, but the background is default greywhite.
    And I meant as a creation-side measure, not view-wise. For if you want to make a memo that will have no timefoolery and default handles.

    This is totally amazing! Epic win xD Though I have a question. How do you switch off quirks for a situation like, say you want to post a link?
    Your trolltag is astronomicalMaster and you tend to have pr[]brems enunciating certain retters. S[]me []f them have a strange twang too.

    Hmm, I'm not able to reproduce this in Windows 7 and I haven't heard of this problem before. Did you install it in the default directory?

    Right click the area just above the Pesterlog to bring up the menu. Then go to QUIRKS OFF. Also check out the sweet tutorial I posted for more tips!

    Also you dont need to worry about your quirks messsing up a URL. PC 3.14 will take care of it for you!

    Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14: Brand new Pesterchum! From scratch!

    Jeez it's big and cluttered. Are all the .pyd and .dll necessary? Plus it's ~27mb all up (I'm not counting the themes 'cause I understand the size of them). I don't want to offend you and all the work you put into this(which is great btw), but wasn't the point of Tinychum and Pesterchum the fact that they were small, efficient and cross platform? Tinychum is ~500kb and Pesterchum 2.5 isn't much bigger (again, not counting themes). Why is this so inflated?
