    Charat Alpha 2.0

    As of October 4, 2013

    Updates:

    -The most notable feature that has been implemented for Charat 2.0 is CHARACTER SAVING. Currently, the editing of characters can only be done on the Front Page. Here is how to manage your characters:

    1. On the Front Page chat settings, you input the character you'd like to save into the character details as if you were going to go into a random chat.

    2. Once you are done, you click Save Character and the page will reload.

    3. The Saved Characters drop-down list on the Front Page and the Settings in chat will have a list of all of the characters you have saved. If you select one, it will dump their character details into your character details. Note that the settings will only save if you select Save.

    4. If you go to the Saved Characters tab on the Front Page, it'll show a list of all of the characters you saved. You can select [be] to dump their settings into your character details. Don't forget to save.

    5. You can also delete characters in the Saved Characters tab only. Select [delete] to delete the character and the page will reload.

    -Previews have been reimplemented. They show up automatically if you have Typing Patterns and will hide themselves if you do not. You can toggle the preview in the settings.

    -A Continue Chatting button has been implemented. It will show after clicking the disconnect button on When clicked, it will restart your search for a new person to chat with.

    -Out of Character and In-Character commands and settings have been restructured. Simply typing "/ooc" or "/ic" will change the chat settings to Out of Character or In-Character, respectively. Typing in either command with extra text afterwards will result in the message being parsed in the way that it is intended, parentheses for /ooc and no parentheses for /ic, but will not change the settings of the chat.

    -Persistant variables: More objects are stored in localStorage. Such as OOC options and Topic hiding. The most significant change is that all of the variables are now chat independent, meaning that when you change the variable on one chat, another chat you have already visited (after this update) will not change that the settings for that chat ie: System Notifications, Disconnect Warning.

    -The quotes on the front page are now random.

    -Chats Window Titles will now show the Chat Group Name.

    -Bugfix: Disconnecting with the Disconnect button now brings you all the way to the bottom of the page.

    -Bugfix: Disconnect Warnings now display the correct check box setting.

    -Bugfix: Currently, with the crashing of chats, I have reduced the amount of messages that each chat will show.

    Charat Alpha 1.2

    As of September 27, 2013

    Updates:

    -Acronyms are now shown on the User List.

    -The Front Page has been updated to look nicer and provide more functions.

    -Typing Patterns have been reimplemented for those that need them.-The command /me puts dashes around your text to signify character actions.

    -There is now Out Of Character settings. If you have it checked, your text will be surrounded by parentheses to signify Out Of Character chat. You can turn it on and off with /ooc and /ic commands.

    -You can now use /me commands to signify character actions. This will work in conjunction with /ooc and /ic if you do this: /ooc/me or /ic/me.-You can now save Group Chat logs manually.

    -New Message notifications are now tuned so that it will display in numbers instead of saying "New Message." It will instead say: "# New Messages - Charat (Alpha)."

    -Bugfix: Long chat messages no longer stop your browser from scrolling down.

    -Bugfix: System Notification Hiding work how they are supposed to. If you don't have cookies or if your cookies have been eaten for Charat, System Notifications will no longer be automatically turned off.
