    PESTERCHUM 3.41: Updated Pesterchum! New Thread!


    First off, I'd like to thank all you users for making Pesterchum a huge success! We started from a user base that had a maximum of about 200 people online at any given time. Now there are regularly over 2000 people online at the same time during peak hours. I took some stats from my irc logs:

    Number of unique IP addresses:
    Month of July: ~20,000
    Month of August: ~24,000
    Month of September, October: whoops my server ate my logs
    October 23-November 23: ~42,000

    That's right, around 40,000 people used pesterchum in the month of November. (Some of those are people accessing the site from different locations; I'd put the real number of actual people around 30,000? It's impossible to tell.) So THANK YOU! I'm so happy that everyone loves the program; let's make it bigger! Tell your friends! I want this bad boy to outlive Homestuck!

    Anyhow, here's the new Pesterchum! New features are in the Changelog below.

    IF YOU ALREADY HAVE PESTERCHUM
    (note: not for people who use the zip file!)



    IF YOU ARE A NEW PESTERCHUM USER OR ARE INSTALLING ON A NEW COMPUTER


    IF YOU USE THE ZIP FILE (only if you know what you're doing)


    IF YOU ARE ON A MAC:

    YOU MUST HAVE AN INTEL MAC TO RUN THIS.

    Lexi (lexicalNuance) maintains the Mac port of Pesterchum because I'm apparently not hip enough to own a Mac. I think you can get the latest version here:

    http://lexi.org.uk/files/pesterchum/Pesterchum.dmg

    (Lexi let me know if this is wrong)

    IF YOU ARE ON LINUX:


    EXPERIMENTAL USB VERSION


    IF YOU WANT TO DEBUG PESTERCHUM (usually if someone's asked you to post a debug log)



    So if you are using the new Pesterchum, and you want to move your chumlist and quirks to a new computer, follow these directions:



    We also added a whole bunch of user themes to the package; thank you everyone who contributed a theme! If you are a theme creator, and you want to update your theme, post it to the Pestertheme thread and I'll include it in the next release.

    HOW TO USE CALSPRITE


    List of available smilies:


    The development team so far is myself (ghostDunk), Kiooeht (evacipatedBox), Lexi (lexicalNuance), alGore; original art by Grimlive (aquaMarinist), binaryCabalist, ashdenej, TMBGfan, cannabisHero, Orangestar, Zephyrkit, Insani, Omerta, and Atoms2Ashes.

    The updates in this version are basically almost all Kiooeht's work, give him the serious cred he deserves! Here's the changelog:




    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!

    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!

    QUIRKS

    Now there is a separate quirk thread! Get help on your quirks in here!

    OK so this is out of date but i'm tired and i'm going to bed now...i'll fix this...later


    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.

    Kudos to you, ghostDunk, for being so prompt.

    Also, I finally get to do what I have wanted to do for a long, long time:

    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)
    I dare say this set of instructions - if not the link - is valid.
    I have the previous version for linux. I'm just wondering if the update covers that too, since there aren't actually any instructions or links for it in this thread.

    Oh, uh, Zephyrkit did the background and symbols to things like Johntier and Battlechum, so she should get in there, too!

    Thanks, though!

    Re: PESTERCHUM 3.41: Updated Pesterchum! New Thread!

    Yeah, new version!

    Question: Is there a way to keep the memos when nobody who already in them is online? For example, I have an RP and in that RP I'm going to open a memo for slightly obvious reasons. However we're all on different timezones and there are times when nobody is online. So the memos will just disappear. I would like it so that when a person from the RP group logs on to Pesterchum the Memo appears in the memo list for them to select.

    I also would like the option for when you open a memo to open it from when that memo started as opposed to starting it from blank.

    I think the first is possible using chanserv, and the second is, to my recollection, impossible using IRC.

    As Pesterchum uses IRC as its base, you can't do the latter.

    Also, you should probably change the Linux instructions. There's no need to manually move the logs/ quirks/ and profiles/ to ~/.pesterchum, Pesterchum will move all of it for you the first time you run it.

    Re: PESTERCHUM 3.41: Updated Pesterchum! New Thread!

    Um i'd like to point out that Tavros' quirk doesn't work right ): when you put it in its lower cases each word instead of just lower casing the beginnings.
    Excample: tESTING oNE tWO tHREE,,, tESTING <- thats how it shows when you use the quirk set that's linked above for cannons when its supposed to belike this -> tESTING ONE TWO THREE,,, tESTING
    i was just wondering if there was a way to fix the quirk or if we just need to give in an let the set quirk do what it does?

    I have a slight annoyance to report: when a toaster pops up, the window switches focus to the main pesterchum window, and I have to click on the message window to get back to what I was doing. Can you fix this? (and yes, I'm aware I can turn toasters off)
    Your pesterchum handle was loquacionGenerator but now it's legendaryGamer, and ( +,,:: ) I love video games.

    Hey, I can't download pesterchum I tried to update it but it couldn't open some files, and now I can't even open my old pesterchum. Help?
    Wouldn't it be ironic if someone choked and died on a lifesaver?

    The new memo ping sound for Trollian is annoying.

    Any way to replace it with the old one?

    EDIT: nvm found it

    all you have to do is copy alarm.wav in your trollian theme folder, delete alarm2.wav and name alarm.wav to alarm2.wav

    This was just because I wasn't sure how that tar/git clone would play with their old pesterchum directory -- I just want to make sure the user's data is never lost!

    The first thing you can kind of do: if you register the channel with IRC using Chanserv (currently a task that requires you to download an IRC client and learn how to use Chanserv), you can register the channel which will allow the server to remember things like operators and so on. As far as it staying in your memo list when the channel doesn't exist, you can't do that now. I am thinking having a list of saved memos would be nice in future releases though.

    This is a known bug and we're working on it. Check the FA%.

    Er, I'm having a problem...

    I installed Pesterchum on my Mac OS X 10.4.11, and when I tried to start it the icon bounced once but didn't do anything.

    Is the Mac outdated or anything? Please tell me if you know what I'm doing wrong.

    Re: PESTERCHUM 3.41: Updated Pesterchum! New Thread!

    I am having a huge problem.

    So, I went to download it, and it seems to of only worked halfway. Getting rid of 3.14, but when it tries to download 3.41, it says error. To everything. I then tried to just download it as if on a new computer, since it already uninstalled the old one, and all the errors popped up again. I downloaded the zip one, since I have worked my way with ZIPs, and moved the things as you said. It works, but I don't have anything on it anymore, like my accounts and quirks, even though I moved all the files from my old folder. And, this may be me just being a derp, but I can't seem to find anything naming where I can change my theme. Is there any way to fix any of this? I really want to experience the new one!

    Oh, and as a note, my friend is experiencing the same thing, except the 3.14 for her did not get erased, so it seems it's not just my computer. Is there anything either of us can do? :c
