Got this working using Pidgin on Windows, can't wait for Fleet and Officer chat, I'm guessing they have to implement a non-password security option for these rooms before they're secure enough to use.
However having trouble on my iPhone which is where I would really like it, might get an HTC Desire Android phone soon as well (if upgrade price is reasonably), so far IM+ for iPhone connects and lists friends and fleet members but as soon as I message someone it disconnects, I've logged a ticket with ShapeServices, but Ive tried 3 other free clients and they won't even connect. Have also asked shape to add group chat support.
Don't want to spend on other apps unless I know one works.
I expect these will become common:
AYIG = "Are you in-game?"
INIG = "I'm not in-game"
so is this still turned off is there any update to when it will be back on
at the moment I'm trying to use Trillian it connections and then disconnects shortly after and while it is connected i try to view a list of conversation rooms and nothing is in there.
Use Pidgin it works great, however I did get Trillian working for me.....,the only disadvantage with Trillian I see is it DOES NOT support auto joining conferences or bookmarking of conferences. ie sto, tts channels. I also tried to be REAL Geeky and find a LCARS terminal for Trillian.
well ok then ...looks like i just need to figure out why its not keeping me connected them
Edit: are you able to log into trillian ? and stay in
what are the settings for it anything special you know of?
well just tried setting up pigen and it does not even want to work for me just d/c right away.
Are you signed up on the Test Shard Server (Tribble)? Only accounts enable for that can login currently, as it's still in "beta".
Pidgin works for me, but IM+ disconnects when I try to send a message to someone, so quite possibly as the Devs use Pidgin they've coded it with that client in mind and others might behaive strangely.
Otherwise, directions on the first post should get you connected.
Note, that Fleet (Guild) Chats and Officer (Officer) Chats don't yet work, only custom (IE not Local, Global etc.) channels (Channels), so to join a room, Pidgin defaults to guilds.crypticspace.com change this to channels.crypticspace.com
