Ok :) Staging site is setup for chat. I'll be converting this staging site into production in a week or less. Android app is getting final touches, looking for someone who knows xcode/cocoa for the iphone version.
Windows application to serve your chat to the website is functioning and after some code tweaks for reconnecting if the site goes down will be released as well :)
I invite anyone to test the site if you want. http://stage.ffxiv-app.com/chat
You can register with a username/email and a password will be sent to you that's random, later a profile page will be setup to change that.
For the first while I'll be honest I'll be setting up the site so that you can chat with your game for free. After I see what type of network load/demand there is I may have to charge a small subscription fee/month to help offset the costs but I'll see :)
Commands in the chat window:
/pm username message
/game /chatmode message (/game /tell boo boo hey wassup~!)
Supported: /l, /p, /s, /sh, /t first last, /em message
Coming: dice roll and just plain emotes
Clicking a name let puts the whisper command already in the chat box at bottom. G-mail style interface is incoming as well for both android and website :)
PS: Since you can see the source of my website anyway, it connects to http://ffxiv-app.com:4000/
If the port is blocked or it doesn't say "you have joined the channel" let me know and I'll look into alternate means to serve it over port 80.
Planned: IRC integration, avatar style chat and who knows what else. Open to suggestions~!
