New Webchat

Sun, 29 Mar 2009 18:30:00 -0400 - ajanata

I have replaced all of the embedded chats with PJIRC, instead of our home-grown AJAX solution. While I\'m not keen on using a Java-based chat, the AJAX one was simply too taxing on the server it was running on and froze up under moderately heavy load (and since Guitar Hero: Metallica came out today, we\'ve been under far more than just \"moderately heavy\" load).

You must make sure you have a Java runtime installed on your computer, and that your web browser can use it. You can see if you have a properly configured Java installation. If you have any problems with the new chat short of it not working at all, please stop by the support chat; if you are unable to use the chat at all and have tried to install Java from the link above, please drop us an email at staff [at] socialgamer [dot] net.
