Hello all,

First topic I've started here at BetaArchive, anyway...

I am looking for a V-Chat server so I can use the 1995 Microsoft V-Chat application, which is similar to IMVU. I know already that its based on IRC but I can't find a IRC-compatible server anywhere.

Any help would be appreciated.

Anyone?

I've got Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5, but it needs IIS2.0 just to install chat services!

You don't need any specific IRC server as far as I know ... last time I played with Comic Chat, I just used some random IRCd that I found on the net and it worked fine. As long as everyone in the room is using Comic Chat everything should be fine, anyone using other clients will probably see a few interesting codes every now and then.

EDIT: My bad, i thought V-Chat and Comic Chat were the same thing when they're completely different... But still, couldn't you use any old IRC server?

To be completely honest, I've not tried with any other IRC server. I'll fire it up with the freenode servers and check...

Well so far we have the following in the log:

Code:
--Info--  Connecting to "irc.freenode.net"...Connected.
--Info--  Online, but not in a room.  Server: irc.freenode.net
--Info--  Entering "##php"...


And I'm waiting for it to load.

Still waiting... all it says is "Retrieving room list"...

Gave up and trying again.

Yes, my bad it was, I must have clicked on something instead of "Enter Room".

Problem is now that its NOT a 3D chat room, just a standard IRC one! So naturally, I just clicked the "V-Chat rooms" button, and guess what! 0 out of 4260 rooms found!

My conclusion: I need a V-Chat compatible IRC server.
