I would like to find a good iOS app that works with STO's chat rooms in a similar fashion to Pidgin.

I've heard good things of Beejive - I HAVE NOT TRIED IT MYSELF (Big disclaimer ;-))

Could be worth a look.



Trying to figure out - can I add the fleet chat channel to this?

this is awesome. just tested it with fleeties, we do have our own custom channel but unable to connect to it but can connect to another custom channel. only other problem i have is when i join a chat channel, snarl spam's my screen with who is in the channel then spams me of who joins the channel and who left it.

It's not working for me. Pidgin gives an error "Not Acceptable". What's going on?

For the error "Unacceptable" I think you're not allowed to have spaces. So, try a "." or an "_".

As far as joining a public channel -- if there is a space in the name, use the '+' sign. Ie: My+Channel will get you into "My Channel"

Cheers & Good luck.

I didn't have any spaces in my information.

However, I changed the Resouce from "IM" to "Bommy" (Don't ask ) and it worked. Maybe it wasn't long enough?

Trying to help a friend....
Has anyone found a MAC (computer not iphone/ipad) IM client that works with STO IM and works with the user channels?
If so, can you post the name of the client and the settings needed to make it work?

Thanks, Russell

my best guess is since Pidgin is a Linux based app, you can make MAC accept it like any other app by installing APT-GET and running 'apt-get install pidgin' but I AM NOT SURE

I have a few toons in various fleets and once I found out I could join fleet chat (in addition to global channels) via Pidgin, I wanted to try it (instructions here).

For one of the fleets, I can add the chat to my buddy list but when I double click it I get the error:
Quote:
Error joining chat holodeck!fleet+name@guilds.crypticspace.com

Registration Required
(here I've substituted Fleet Name for "fleet+name")

I've talked to the fleet leader and while he doesn't use Pidgin, he says there shouldn't be anything weird with the privacy settings. I've tried this logged into and out of the game, and when logged onto different characters but get the same error. Any help?
