We seem to be having an issue with our chat room. After speaking with a few of the developers, it is their recommendation not to use Dalnet for our chat servers. According to the developers, Dalnet is slow to connect and sometimes refuses connections for certain reasons.
We are going to do a little work on researching the best Chat servers to use and we will hopefully have these issue resolved before 5/25.
Will post a message here when we have the work completed.
Well, it seems to be just a problem with the fact we are using Dalnet for our chat connections. Nothing to do with the software, so it is just a matter of choosing another chat network and modifying a few settings in the chat room.
For a replacement to the chatroom, I am seriously thinking on building the chatroom software myself. Would be the first step in planning the online games we have been thinking about.
