  1. There are closed and internal testing. But I think they also get reviewed before publishing. I could try the closed one though.
  2. JKChat won't be available for some time on Google Play since the app does not respect some rules of the store. Particularly that thing is violated: https://support.google.com/googleplay/android-developer/answer/9876937?hl=en So all server names, all chat messages are UGC and can contain objectionable texts. So I have to add some kind of reporting/hiding option to protect snowflakes from the evil internet. C'est la vie. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I am not sure when I get some extra time to please Google as it's not high priority. Use Dropbox only for now.
  3. Fixed the iOS version. You may download the updated version. Links are the same. Additionally to the crash there were some critical visual issues like black navigation bar and wrong offset chat. Using this thread as a psychotherapist: Fuck Apple with their backward incompatibility. Simple code becomes overcomplex: iOS: fixed app appearance on iOS 15 · entdark/JKChat@cc907d4 (github.com) Started to discuss the app removal with Google as well. They are not hurrying to reply. For now download the Android version from Dropbox.
  4. Thanks for the report. You are not alone with that. Investigating. Also GG Google. Removed the app in public beta test for breaking some rules. Gonna fix that as well.
  5. Updated the app. For iOS users: Install TestFlight: https://apps.apple.com/app/testflight/id899247664 Then open that link on your iOS device: https://testflight.apple.com/join/5HSqhVHw For Android users: Install directly from APK: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ptx301a1pas39n9/com.vlbor.jkchat.apk?dl=1 Install from Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vlbor.jkchat Changed: - remade UI of informative and players chat messages - bottom navigation bar now matches app theme on Android Also I streamed the development of that feature, so here is the recording: https://www.twitch.tv/entdark/videos After trying the application, please, leave a feedback of what you'd like see in the future. Yes, you can request any feature you want. It's not necessarily to be only limited to chat, I could implement other game features. Probably everything is possible that doesn't require game assets. Also if you encounter any error, then please report me either in the feedback form in TestFlight or in this JKHub post or in JKHub PM or on discord PM: ent#9404. Report the error either by copying it or taking a screenshot and showing me or just telling the steps to reproduce.
  6. I am back to the development: Expect new streams and the app updates soon. And while you are waiting there are some recordings of the development as a YouTube playlist:
  7. Also I opened the source code: https://github.com/entdark/JKChat
  8. Made one more hotfix with a few additions. Fixed crash when someone sends a voice command in any team game type in JA. Fixed weird loading indicator appearance from the top on iOS when navigating to chat page. Added a possibility to restore the app on Android even if the system killed the app. The app restores in 99% cases. Added a "Disconnect" button to the foreground service notification on Android. Redownload the update. Links are the same.
  9.

  10. Hello. I opened the source code of JKClient: https://github.com/entdark/JKClient That source is a skeleton for JKChat mobile application (that source I am going to open later). That client is a rewritten JA and JO engines code that doesn't require game assets yet still can let you to connect to game servers. The client is written on C#. Why C# - you may ask? Since it's a special library that targets .NET Standard 2.1 then it can be compiled once and ran on many OSs. That library can be ran on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android and others. If I chose to make the assetsless client on C or C++ then every OS and every CPU architecture would require a separate compilation for every OS and architecture. Where could it be useful? At first, JKChat that I am currently developing: At second: you can create a Discord bot using this client to interact with players from your Discord server and game server by using: https://github.com/discord-net/Discord.Net Feel free to use the client however you want. I'd appreciate if you leave any feedback, give suggestions or create an issue on GitHub.
  11. One more hotfix for both Android and iOS. Fixed getting an error on JO servers when sending a message with non-ASCII characters. And new experimental feature for iOS: endless background execution. That is achieved by using GPS tracking. You have to grant a permission to the app to use location updates "Always". If you denied the permission or only granted "When in use" but want to let the app always stay in background anyways, then enable "Always" in Settings -> JKChat.iOS -> Geolocation. Location is not actually tracked, if you care about privacy. It's only requested to be updated on background so it keeps the app alive all the time. Of course, if you do not want the app to execute on background then deny that permission and use the app same as before. Links are the same.
  12. Made a hotfix for iOS for invisible text in input field. Check TestFlight for an update.
  13. IMPORTANT note for those who download from Google Play Store: if you have never downloaded the app or uninstalled it previously, then after installing, it will offer you to update the app. So make sure to not leave the Google Play Store app page and update the app after initial installation.
  14. IMPORTANT: I hear all your suggestions, guys, but as I told earlier, some features require new UI and it's still in development. Be patient, please. Updated the app. For iOS users: Install TestFlight: https://apps.apple.com/app/testflight/id899247664 Then open that link on your iOS device: https://testflight.apple.com/join/5HSqhVHw For Android users: Install directly from APK: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ptx301a1pas39n9/com.vlbor.jkchat.apk?dl=1 Install from Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vlbor.jkchat Added: - added recent servers that appear on top of the server list - added always displaying a dialog window for choosing nickname on app start - added "/rcon" command support - added a possibility to disconnect from server by clicking "Back" arrow on navigation bar (clicking system "Back" button on Android or swiping left-to-right on iOS will just navigate you back to server list without disconnection) Fixed: - fixed displaying blank window on iOS 12 and lower - fixed never displaying server print messages on iOS 12 and lower I also streamed the development of some features above recently (2 new recordings): https://www.twitch.tv/entdark/videos After trying the application, please, leave a feedback of what you'd like see in the future. Yes, you can request any feature you want. It's not necessarily to be only limited to chat, I could implement other game features. Probably everything is possible that doesn't require game assets.

  15. Made one more hotfix, but for Android only. Links are the same. Fixed: - annoying frequent sounds from notification - blank server print messages - crashes on old devices Added: - disconnect from all the servers on app minimizing with Back button (foreground notification disappears) - disconnect from all the servers on app closing/swiping from the Recents screen (foreground notification disappears) For both Android and iOS: if you want to manually disconnect from certain server, just type "/disconnect" (without quotes) there.
  16. Made a hotfix for inability to connect to passworded servers. Redownload from the same links.
  17. Updated the app. For iOS users: Install TestFlight: https://apps.apple.com/app/testflight/id899247664 Then open that link on your iOS device: https://testflight.apple.com/join/5HSqhVHw For Android users: Install directly from APK: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ptx301a1pas39n9/com.vlbor.jkchat.apk?dl=1 Install from Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vlbor.jkchat Added: - Jedi Knight: Jedi Outcast servers support (v1.02, v1.03, v1.04) - pull-to-refresh feature to refresh server list - informative dialog windows (if you got kicked, if server is full etc) - server commands support (a message that starts with "/") - server printing messages (temorary UI, it will be remade in the future) - a possibility to connect to multiple servers - background support: endless on Android, ~30 seconds on iOS - interactive keyboard on iOS - restoring connection Fixed: - crashes when leaving chat on iOS - always displaying errors when maximizing the app on iOS - inability to show server list on Android 11 - reloading the app after screen rotation on Android I also streamed the development of some features above recently (3 new recordings): https://www.twitch.tv/entdark/videos You also asked many other features, but they require new UI and a person who is responsible for UI is busy now so it's delayed a bit. After trying the application, please, leave a feedback of what you'd like see in the future. Yes, you can request any feature you want. It's not necessarily to be only limited to chat, I could implement other game features. Probably everything is possible that doesn't require game assets.

  18. New features are upcoming: jk2 servers support - done server commands - done refreshing server list - done background execution - implemeting Fixed some bugs (especially for often crashing iOS) and made some improvements - thanks for reports. Expect a new version very soon.
  19. I understand and cannot help with it. Sorry. Currently putting any effort into making special protocol for mobile clients is not considered.
  20. With that logic, everything is doable. I thought about many options too. And many of them require either modifications but that requires to put an extra effort and who will even use that change in their mods/engines? They won't bother. Or to run an extra server that controls the master client. And what if that server is down? There are some more options but believe me it's better to leave everything as is and put the effort into completing the app rather than fixing the logic behind clients taking slots. Clients that take slots issue could be considered after everything is done. Nailed it.
  21. Google has finally approved the app. You can download the app from Google Play Store now: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vlbor.jkchat
  22. @Wolfeye Hi, thanks for your questions. I am from a CTF community where some players really sit a lot in spec and chat and they are not chatting on Discord at that moment. That was the origin of the idea. Also not everyone knows and uses Discord. And something that happens on the server stays on the server, and none will copy-paste chat logs from there to Discord to stay on topic. As I also said everyone has their own reason to chat. You got it wrong. You don't send any bot on the server, you connect yourself. I have rewritten JA engine to become a standalone client that doesn't need assets. So you connect as you usually connect from your computer. Duel server is a special case, yeah. There are a lot of such cases. That's why I made it public alpha test so people will tell me about every issue they will find. So you will probably stay still on a duel server since you are only able to chat now.
  23. Hello, everyone. I am excited to show you a mobile application that I am developing right now. It's Jedi Knight Chat or simply JKChat mobile application. (The name is not final and mays be changed in the future.) The app lets you connect and chat on Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy and Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast servers without a computer. The idea of the application is to be able to chat with your mates on game servers when you don't have access to your computer at current moment. It could be useful for people who are coming back from work, and would like to notify their friends they will be able to play soon with those who are on the server right now. Also it could be useful for people who barely play but like to chat with their old mates from 00s who they played a lot with back then. Also RP servers would probably like the application. Well, everyone has their own reason for chatting in this game. Also the 2nd feature is the application could be useful for server admins. You will be able to manage your server remotely from your mobile device when something serious is happening on your server (partially implemented). It's only the first stage of the app and it's still in active development, the second stage will be started once I gather some feedback after the alpha test. I stream the development on https://www.twitch.tv/entdark/videos Recordings of the development on YouTube: Enough words. I have come here to invite you to the alpha test of the application. For iOS users: Install TestFlight: https://apps.apple.com/app/testflight/id899247664 Then open that link on your iOS device: https://testflight.apple.com/join/5HSqhVHw For Android users: Install directly from APK: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ptx301a1pas39n9/com.vlbor.jkchat.apk?dl=1 Install from Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vlbor.jkchat Latest changelog: After trying the application, please, leave a feedback of what you'd like to see in the future. Yes, you can request any feature you want. It's not necessarily to be only limited to chat, I could implement other game features. Probably everything is possible that doesn't require game assets.
