After a few minutes it realizes the problem and kills the "ghost" (as it's called) and you can get back on the account.
Well, I thought it could be the server thing. It appears to have been stable this evening. But, no, my connection is actually pretty good. And I was getting auto-logged out, not disconnecting on my own, but I can believe that it was just due to server problems, since this all seemed to have started in the last few days.

3.14.2 Beta 4

Well here it is, Beta 4. Now with custom quirk functions (you can write your own versions of upper(), lower(), scramble(), etc.)! Also is a new, revamped, awesome quirk window. And as always lots of bug fixes (whooooooooo) such as no longer killing memos with spam if your messages are too long.

Install instructions are the same as for Beta 3: Here

Linux
Windows

Please do use the bug reporting feature! If I or ghostDunk don't know about the bugs, they're not going to get fixed!

I'm Commander Shepard and this is my favourite client on the pesterchum network.

Which is why I go with random replace spaces with elipses (...) for one of my trolls, a simple prefix and suffix for the other, and with my normal account, ACTG are red instead of the normal blue. That last one is only a problem if you're not using pesterchum.

6. ## Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14.1: New Pesterchum (4/13 UPDATE pg28)

I uninstalled and then installed it again and it works fine

7. ## Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14.1: New Pesterchum (4/13 UPDATE pg28)

Wait, I'm seeing all this 'install Python Pygame bluh bluh', that's... Am I missing out on anything by skipping this Beta?

8. ## Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14.1: New Pesterchum (4/13 UPDATE pg28)

My pesterchum won't let me enter.. Everytime I click which profile I want to use, it says it is taken...

You haven't closed it properly. This is probably the single most common mistake.
Go down to your task bar, that's the thing at the bottom of your screen with the start button. On the left side, there will be a bunch of little icons, as well as the time. One of those icons will be a pesterchum face or a trollian face. If you don't see one of those, then there is a little arrow. Click the arrow, and it will expand and you will see the icon. Right click on the icon, and click EXIT or ABSCOND to actually close it. Clicking the X in the pesterchum window just puts it down there, you need to go to EXIT to actually close it.

10. ## Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14.1: New Pesterchum (4/13 UPDATE pg28)

Pesterchum keeps saying "FAILE timed out" whenever I enter it.

Help?

All your missing is the chance to test out new features early and help the development of Pesterchum (especially through reporting bugs). Pretty much everything in my betas should end up being in the next official release, but that really depends on what GD says.

12. ## Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14.1: New Pesterchum (4/13 UPDATE pg28)

It is not working. I did all the things that you said to do. It will not open.
/On Windows

13. ## Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14.1: New Pesterchum (4/13 UPDATE pg28)

Same here, it won't open here either. Maybe it has to do with the fact that I kept some of the files from the previous version so I could still have the pesterlogs and memo's and so on.

14. ## Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14.1: New Pesterchum (4/13 UPDATE pg28)

I'm having this recurring problem that's been happening recently. I'm doing things, and leave Pesterchum/Trollian open while waiting for a reply. After I bring the window back up, it does this: http://img827.imageshack.us/img827/7369/goddsdsdg.png and stops responding, then closes. It sometimes even freezes my computer!

Also, if you look at the corner, it shows there's 3 different Pesterchum programs open. There wasn't. I had also recently restarted, and only opened one.

Is it something with the Windows XP software that sets it off, or is it something I have open? It does seem to do this most often when in Mozilla Firefox 4 or Photoshop CS7.

15. ## Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14.1: New Pesterchum (4/13 UPDATE pg28)

Hey. I'm wanting to change the content of the idle message that my pesterchum sends.
Does anyone know how to accomplish this?

Try running it from a command line. Open a command prompt and type
Code:
C:\Python26\python.exe C:\path\to\pesterchum\beta\pesterchum.py
But substitute in the correct path to 'pesterchum.py'

You may be hitting a bad memory leak or memory problems (I know there's a memory leak in animations if you're running the betas). It's possible you're somehow running out of RAM (which is crazy, Pesterchum should not be using that much).

You can't. All you send is "PESTERCHUM:IDLE" and the message that shows up for the receiver is based on what theme they're using.

17. ## Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14.1: New Pesterchum (4/13 UPDATE pg28)

I don't think there's a memory leak anywhere, or maybe something else is using all of my RAM whilst using Pesterchum. ...although C++ doesn't have an automatic garbage collection, so it may just be my mis-whatevering.

It also seems Photoshop CS7 may be cutting it off. It only does that when I'm doing something like that. I know CS7 takes a lot of RAM to start up, perhaps even stay open.

It keeps saying that .p is a line continuation character and "y" is an unexpected character.

19. ## Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14.1: New Pesterchum (4/13 UPDATE pg28)

Hi, I'm sure I'm doing something wrong. I don't have the new beta you just posted, on a side note.
But, whenever I try to change the theme I can't click on anything. I've waited for a while, to see if it just took time, and that didn't work. I can't click to change the theme back, I can't click the exit button on the window, all I can do is move the window around. And sometimes, if it's 2.5, I can change which handle I'm using.
I can stick to the working 6.0 if it can't be fixed, but it'd be convenient if it could.

20. ## Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14.1: New Pesterchum (4/13 UPDATE pg28)

I've noticed something with memos and userlists breaking. It appears that if you enter a memo with a capital letter where there shouldn't be one, the userlist is likely to break. For example, take the Spin the bottle memo (though I won't use the actual name of it, as it was hidden for a reason I am still not sure of). If you enter it using Spin_the_Bottle, the userlist can break, but if you enter it using spin_the_bottle, it doesn't break.

Just something I noticed, though I am not sure how fixable this is.

As I've already said once, I made a jackNoir account. Just now, I logged in on Pesterchum as my normal account and wanted to switch to my jackNoir account when there suddenly came a message that the account 'was already taken'! I pestered the guy and someone else now has my account somehow!

Jack Noir is a canon name. If you don't want someone taking "your" account, then try being a little more creative and make your own handle instead of using something from the comic. If its a name from the comic, its a free for all.

23. ## Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14.1: New Pesterchum (4/13 UPDATE pg28)

I'm not entirely sure on how to add chums in Pesterchum 6.0. There doesn't seem to be a button for it.

24. ## Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14.1: New Pesterchum (4/13 UPDATE pg28)

WARNING:root:unknown numeric event 010
INFO:root:error: closing socket

Got this when trying to log on. I opened it in terminal so i could see the irc.

25. ## Re: PESTERCHUM 3.14.1: New Pesterchum (4/13 UPDATE pg28)

Mine lets me have my chumhandle but then it says failed to connect, even when I added that part into the code that was given on the front page.

I try over and over again but it doesn't work.
