External Chat Program - Beta 1.3.0

Hey guys! Over the past few weeks I’ve been spending some spare time on an external program for the chat system.

My goal was to make a nice looking version that extends the… well, rather glitchy system we currently have.
+ It works (mostly)
+ You don’t have to have the website open
- Still in beta, so there’s bound to be a few bugs
- Still working on a chrome extension to hide the current chat system (they conflict with each other)

[size=4]Open source[/size]
Since you have to enter your username and password (and that may make some uncomfortable) I’ve decided to make this entire project open source. You can find it here: https://github.com/DaMrNelson/RobloxChatBeta

I’m using an awesome domain my friend set up for me to host downloads (and auto-updating). Yay!
http://damrnelson.socialblox.net/Roblox%20Chat%20Launcher.jar

[size=4]Note to admins[/size]
If you do not want this program up (for any reason, like it requiring the user to enter their password or something) drop me a message and I’ll take it down immediately.

Oh right, I forgot to mention that I was only able to test for windows. Make sure you have the latest version of Java installed. If that doesn’t work and you manage to figure out the console you can try messaging me the output. Thanks for posting the bug!

Oh, and thanks for fixing my DL XD

Works pretty good now that I updated it q.q

Suggestion:
Drag and drop the people that are online to the party to invite them?

Bugs:
when you leave the party it actually does not leave it but it does on the website q.q so you can’t invite other people.

I’ll get to work on your suggestion. But I have no idea how to accomplish that, so I can’t make any promises. Sorry!
As for the bug, are you pressing the “Leave” button, or just the “X” button? If you’re pressing the X button it will not leave the party, it will just hide the window until you press the Party button again (or, in the new update, until somebody messages you).

I pressed the leave button.

I exited out of the program then opened it back up for it to work again.

Strange… does that still happen with the new version? I’m assuming it has something to do you with you being on a Mac, since I don’t get that error. But I’m really not sure… sorry about that! I’ll see what I can do.

Works well now

Some more suggestions:
List of people currently in the party
Auto update app

I’m glad it works! I’ll get to showing people in the party sometime soon. As for auto-updating, I’m still waiting on my friend (who happens to own a webserver) to respond to my message.

Awesome, do you happen to have skype? I just think its better than just posting on here XD

Right in my details. I’ll go add you!

How do you disable it?

How do you disable what, Bonnie?

The chat program. (It broke and I can’t get rid of it) :frowning:

Windows:
Try the system tray. Look for a blue ROBLOX logo, click it, and click exit. If that does not work, kill the java.exe/javaw.exe process (possible through taskmanager or running taskkill /F /IM java.exe).

Mac:
App should close itself when you press the exit button. If not, try restarting your computer or killing all java/javaw processes on your computer.

click red button or go to the apple on the upper left then go to “Force Quit” then select the app.
