Post#1 » 09 Nov 2016 01:52

Hello guys!

Have you ever wanted to join the game when staying at the bus stop? Or when you have a lesson in the school? Or maybe you are dreaming about possibility to start 20 wow instances simultaneously on old PC?

I want to present you new software project, that has such capabilities!

NOTICE: Original game client not required
NOTICE: Small file size (about 20Mb)

What is this?
This is a small lightweight client, which you can carry everywhere on flash drive. Capabilities are limited to interact with ingame chat for now. In fact this is wow chat with all chat functions from original client. You can join to the server using you regular username/password. Original game client not required for work.

Added to downloads page. We have tested the current version (1.1.1) and it doesn't collect passwords but it does send username and character names to 3rd party (Sharm). Safe with a strong password and email/forum links which are always recommended.

And one advice, don't log out in a hostile area if you want to use this. Character actually spawns in and can be killed :)

Design could be improved alot.

Overall it's a cool idea who I've seen before, even made my own but web based. Keep it up!

PS. The fact that your nickname, Sharm, Is legendary in the WoW world since the parody singer featured on YouTube, you maybe should come up with something unique for once

Roel, have you set your post hidden?

How does it work? (Modified exe, that doesn't load the graphical side or something a like?)

What are the current plans for the future? What extra functionality would you like to or could you add in? What limitations for possible abuses do you have in mind as well?

Is there a possibility/support to bridge the chats outside of the game to a third party message client? E.g. using a dummy account in your guild, on your program, on a server (or pc that's on 24/7 on) to bring guild chat to Slackchat or similar? (Comparable to how the IRC-bridge works for gms)

I moved it to be the 2nd post but I guess it won't show as new post if you already read the 3rd in that short interval.

This application created from scratch, this is not modified wow.exe. It implements blizzards client-server protocol on client side.

Near plans is Android and iOS version. Next I'll add features by users requests. The big one is interaction with auction house.

Actually, I don't thinking about chat bridges. This is something different. In future this app will partial implement game functions, not only chat.

Any news about the Android version? I got some friends that I only have contact in-game, would love to be able to chat when I can't be at pc
