[Outdated] PChat Portable 1.1 Pre-Release 1

This pre-release is outdated, this release has gone final and is available at the PChat Portable homepage located on this site
Application: PChat
Category: Internet
Description: PChat is free fork of XChat for windows, has all the same features as xchat but minus the shareware components usually found in the official XChat distribution for Windows.
Settings are automatically saved to Data\Settings (also supports custom icons in App\PChat\icons and also plugins can be added at App\PChat\Plugins)

Download PChat Portable 1.1 Pre-Release 1 [8.3MB download / 41.1MB installed]
(MD5: 37d4e16a731c563ac867f56385001ecd)

Release Notes:

Pre-Release 1 (06/17/2010): Initial Pre-Release

  • Various improvements to xtext engine for loading scrollbacks faster
  • updated OpenSSL to version 1.0.0
  • Added support for freenode's ircd-seven CAP feature
  • Various memory leak fixes in the perl plugin
  • includes by default a Portable mode for the Portable version so for whatever reason if the launcher doesn't work it will still save it's settings in the Data/Settings folder (a fail safe feature)
  • Language Switching now works (special thanks to Chris Morgan
  • PChat Portable is now using PAL (which is the reason I thanked Chris for the language switching help, twas the only part that was pretty difficult to work with.)

Maybe a problem

I am running it at the moment but it seems that it does not use the native interface. i am running vista and pchat looks 98ish

May the Shwartz be with you

"includes by default a Portable mode for the Portable version so for whatever reason if the launcher doesn't work it will still save it's settings in the Data/Settings folder (a fail safe feature)"

So is the launcher actually doing anything? I don't have time to check at the moment so I don't know how it's currently handled with this release, but if PChat does all that stuff by itself you can use WaitForProgram=false in the launcher .ini file under the [Launch] section (if you don't already).

no the launcher still uses

no the launcher still uses the -d config command, but in the rare instance that the launcher doesn't work as it should (which sometimes can happen) it will fall back to the relative path to the data/settings folder so like I said it's a fallback feature.

-d as a command line

-d as a command line parameter? If there's nothing for the launcher to do when PChat is terminated, you don't need it to wait. Sauerbraten Portable has a load of command line parameters, but I don't make the launcher wait for the program to exit because it doesn't need to.

you are still not

you are still not understanding what I am saying, I designed PChat to run portable both with -d path to settings commandline option and native portability, meaning if they launcher for some reason goof's up and doesn't execute the -d parameter it will fall back to the portable mode. you understand correctly now?

why the double portability?

why the double portability? The -d setting would be nice for someone that is wanting to stuff the info in another folder. But if it falls back to be PAF just by running, is there any real reason to pass the info?

Platform

Language switching works when you launch it from the PortableApps.com Platform. If the Platform is in German, then the app will be. It doesn't pick up the language from the installer.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
