Topic: New client can chat
The new client is finally to the point that you can create accounts, create characters, retrieve your password, and login and chat with people. Next up is testing the GUI game controls and making display code for monsters, characters, ground and wall tiles, etc. Once that is done and tested I'll start on the client-side game logic. Anyhow just to let you all know where the client is at present.
Update: The GUI game controls work, with rotation support now too. This'll allow 90' rotations like AoE and SimCity have, assuming we set up the tiles appropriately. Next up is animation transition code, hopefully done right this time (last client it was hard coded and buggy, hence things like characters stepping while walking, and attacking strangely).
