    Today I received the first message from mysef, ever!

    The chat system is, in other words, coming along nicely. There are a few things I want to try to fix before releasing an update though:

    • Character selection is borked. If you have more than one character, it seems like the client isn't logging in with the one you actually selected. I think there might also be an issue with the way the city server is handling users in a session. These are pretty important things to fix.
    • I want to try to make sure that when a message is a received from a player that already received a message, it will show up in the corresponding window (or open a new one containing the conversation history).

    Working away on chat system!
    I added a broadcasting message type for testing purposes, but we might need it later on.
    Anyway, everything seems to work as it's supposed to now, except the PLAYER_JOINED packets only seem to be received once per city server restart. I need to figure out what that's all about o_O

    Very nice! The next step after this is obviously to use the interface in the ingame messaging UI. :)

    So I have multiple message passing and reply mostly working in the client, except when replying every message seems to get a new window for some reason.
    Once I've fixed that I need to make sure that multiple clients can't log on with the same account before releasing a new version.

    What happened to the servers being available in the day at New Zealand ;_; why am i wasting my time D:

    Everything is ready now, but I won't be releasing the client for probably a couple if days at least, because I need to work on server stability.
    Ideally both servers should stay online no matter what - I could reroute all exceptions to the log, but exceptions (Thank God!) aren't such a big issue anymore. Now it's mostly a case of not making the login server kick the city server.
