View Full Version : Mac-Forums Chat Nightly (server up)

03-30-2004, 11:00 PM
I have decided to leave the Evur server up more often to support Mac-Forums chat nights. We use to have this a few months ago.. but it slowly died. Now that we have more members hopefully it will kick back up. We would love to have all of you.

Right now at 03_30_04 8:55pm central the server is up (I will change the thread when its down)

You can download the most recent client here (http://www.firestormcreation.com/Evur_Client_047.zip). Its about 65k (about 1 second to download at any speed)

Please join up, and join the few users in the chat room now!

-----this thread is subject to change-----

03-30-2004, 11:05 PM
Ought I tell mine Mac friends?

03-31-2004, 12:34 AM
Sounds neat, why doesn't everyone use iChat? PS- downloaded the client and connected, I got disconnected immediately... no one was there PPS - what kind of chat client is it? very curious :confused: ;)

03-31-2004, 01:12 AM
hmm, i dont know what your problem was.. odd..

but we tried iChat/AIM and it failed horridly. Trust me, this will work out to be a better option.

Its a new chat client system, it has tons of features it will soon have in version 1.0.

Btw the server never said anyone tired to connect for a while..

----Remember to connect with the TRACKER----

03-31-2004, 01:16 AM
I may know what it is actually. I ran it from other than the usual download destination.. could that be it? PS I e-mailed the Evur site BTW FYI ;)

03-31-2004, 02:14 AM
haha, i see graphite.. but don't see anyone else..

03-31-2004, 10:36 AM
yup, everyone left :) we've gota plan a day were all going to be on. More people have to see this thread.

I believe by next week we will have a new version of Evur released.

03-31-2004, 11:22 AM
im on, but i cant type....well, i type...but nothing shows up in the window....

what do i need to put in as my name / password...?

03-31-2004, 03:10 PM
witeshark: The same thing happened to me after I downloaded Evur.

Btw, I did use the Tracker to connect.

I'm also confused about the name/password issue.

03-31-2004, 06:00 PM
hmm.. i dont know what you guys have in common.. and why it wont work..

open evur
click tracker
double click on the server
it will take you to the server.

that should be it...

you have a firewall?

03-31-2004, 07:06 PM
yeah, the tracker lists how many people connected. but in your case your listed as a Null, and because nulls don't logg off ever, it just tallys up..

03-31-2004, 07:08 PM
Alright, I think its a OS10.3 only.. and 10.2 is not enabled...

03-31-2004, 07:37 PM
<--- 10.3

03-31-2004, 08:22 PM
Once Evur is all running, will it be able to be used to log on any other IRC servers?

04-01-2004, 10:37 AM
Right now at 04_01_04 8:35am central the server is down. The internet is down, and therefore no hosting can be done. I will inform you all when it is back up.

Evur is NOT Irc. Though we will think about allowing it to connect to IRC later on.

04-01-2004, 01:59 PM
Right now at 04_01_04 11:58am central the server is UP. It will remain up until I tell you it will be down.

I will also inform you when the newest release of Evur is out.

04-01-2004, 08:58 PM
Evur050 (www.firestormcreation.com/Evur050.zip) is released!

The Dock bounce, and Sound enabled.

04-01-2004, 10:49 PM
i can see people talking.... i cant say anything back though...

and the side bar that i guess users should be in, doesnt work...i dont see users :(

04-02-2004, 12:08 AM
ah that means you have a firewall i believe... there seems to be a nasty firewall issue... hopefully only software firewalls (easily bypassed)

04-02-2004, 12:14 AM
nope... hardwired to my building... university just put it in a month ago

04-02-2004, 10:42 AM
they must have the port we use blocked.

04-02-2004, 05:23 PM
Right now at 04_02_04 3:30am central the server is DOWN. I am doing a little work and cannot run it.

04-06-2004, 11:58 AM
Hey guys, the entire internet was down on my school... felt like what Y2k woulda been like, campus stopped :D

anyways, everything is up now, but i cannot be certain of constant uptime.

04-06-2004, 04:59 PM
Wow, that doesn't sound like fun [having the internet down].

Back last fall when that nasty worm hit, they had to shut down the network for a day at my college. I thought I was going to go crazy from internet withdrawal. ;) (Of course, that was before I got Ian Iachimoe).

I tried downloading the new version of Evur, and it didn't work. ::sigh:: :(

it could be because your using 10.2 rather than 10.3.. or its your Firewall.. i believe FireWall is the reason. We will prolly end up changin the ports.

04-09-2004, 09:21 AM
Evur server will be down until the next release.

05-10-2004, 12:56 PM
Yeah we didn't forget about this, so fear not, Evur will be released hardcore during summer... and actually final version better be out then aswell.

05-10-2004, 09:50 PM
Should be neat! I used to be an IRC all-the-time type -almost. But I didn't bother to download an IRC client on my Mac as all the servers I used to go to are ghost towns now... nothin but bots hang in them if anything. If you'd like to have a look one was a private one irc.rawx.com -Have not been there in quite a while ;)

05-11-2004, 08:29 AM
Yeah, Evur is suppose to be everything irc fails with..

05-11-2004, 07:08 PM
How many connections can the server support (if determined yet) :)

05-11-2004, 08:45 PM
limited only by your bandwidth and your desired #

05-13-2004, 04:06 AM
What does Evur have or will have that sets it apart from AIM, ICQ, IRC, hotline, or carracho? (or might the wheel have been rebuilt?)

05-13-2004, 09:23 AM
well I guess you'll just have to see.. but I can say since it was conceived originally for forum go-ers, so HTML browsing is a thing to expect. We could look at the fact that its just not AIM ICQ IRC or one of the file network brothers, it being in a single window which is something that is NEEDED! Personal Messaging system, along with the messaging ICQ usta have, aka if your offline and someone messages you you'll still get it. User Logins, server tracker, Buddy list, dock bounce/sound, /commands, multiple chats open, + a few surprises.

05-19-2004, 02:23 PM
why not use IRCLE?

05-20-2004, 01:41 PM
why not use IRCLE? IRCLE is an IRC client

05-20-2004, 06:47 PM

Absolute Zero
05-20-2004, 08:22 PM
Delay until the summer? Why not leave Evur up?
And Graphite, will you allow other chats in the Evur network? Like, if I wanted to creat a chat for my site, can I use Evur? Because all that fancy stuff sounds nice. :)
Windows and Linux version is coming as well? Sweet. :)

EDIT: A Mac OS 9 version would be great too because my iMac needs it's motherboard replaced to run X, I can't afford that...

05-21-2004, 03:18 AM
yup, evur is universal chat system, for what ever u want it for, you can buy your own server, or make a room.

os9 possibly around the windows release.

07-03-2004, 05:23 PM
i'm still waiting on it man. i can't wait :)

07-04-2004, 04:30 AM
Is there a PC compatible one availble? My PB took a wrong turn for some weird reason. Its with apple and ill keep you guys updated on support so far.

Absolute Zero
07-04-2004, 06:53 AM
There will be. It's not ready yet.

07-05-2004, 04:31 AM
thanks. About my PB, apple says I fried my hard drive. Luckily, I backed up the day before so im in the clear. They also said I might of fried my Logic Board or something so it might take awhile to replace. They might acutally give me a new the guy said. YAY!!! New one after like a month or 2!

Absolute Zero
07-05-2004, 12:17 PM
Wow. You suck... I had 3 hard drives and a logic board fry on me IN A MONTH. I didn't get a new one.

07-05-2004, 12:39 PM
Zero: do you live in a magnet factory?

Absolute Zero
07-05-2004, 12:45 PM
No... no I don't.

07-06-2004, 03:16 AM
Yeah, Evur is comming along ;) just give us a bit. After 3 rewrites of the entire code, i think this time we are happy with what we have. Atleast for now... pc version will be honestly pretty poor ;).. Ill fill ya all in more information if ur interested.. just right now im a little sickly feelin.

07-06-2004, 03:40 AM
well apple has done it once again. I got it back from them today and something is fried again. I think my sister might be putting my EMP Pluse Cannon right next to it or something because I always find it on :eek: . I might have to lock it up but my PB goes to apple. So, Zero, thats 2 HDs and 2 Logic boards and some other crap i dont know about yet. I think were even.

PS: I think they screwed up because i only gave it to them like a week ago.

Absolute Zero
07-06-2004, 12:37 PM
That's nothing. Try 3 hard drives and a logic board.

I was going to buy a server room for Evur (or however it works) and make a chat room for a forum I hang out at, but most of them are Windows/Linux users.

07-06-2004, 01:29 PM
really.. well maybe ill put effort into it then ;) didnt think there was much of a market

07-06-2004, 01:57 PM
I bet a Linux variant will be kinda easy to configure ;)

Absolute Zero
07-06-2004, 04:14 PM
Heh, cool. :)

07-07-2004, 04:13 PM
I just got my PB back and it is still screwed! ARGHHH!!! This time its the SuperDrive. That is just great.

07-19-2004, 06:07 PM
Alright, Evur v0.47 (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/21287) has been released. I will set the server up maybe later today, it has a tracker built in and I will set that all up later as well. (link to VT)

Evur (firestormcreation.com/fsevur.html) Product page for Evur (link to FSC evur)
FSC (firestormcreation.com) makers of Evur (link to FSC)

download it, test the interface, ask for options. Now is the time.

07-19-2004, 08:24 PM
Ok I might be retarted, but how do I connect to a server?

07-19-2004, 09:21 PM
I'm with ya, Schweb. I opened the program, so now what the heck do I do?

07-20-2004, 12:16 AM
the server is still down, and the tracker is not running ;) silly goose! I thought about setting up the server and the tracker 2nite, but i guess i just never got around to it... didnt think there would be much of an audience..

07-20-2004, 07:21 AM
Well that could explain it then. When you set it up, could you post some instructions so slow folk like me can join the fun? ;)

07-20-2004, 09:07 PM
well i think ill set it up now... but ill post a for sure when i do.

but all you should have to do, is open the window.. (you press the tabs back and forth to refresh, and you will see a server pop up.)

07-22-2004, 07:11 PM
is it set up yet? nothing happened when i ran it

07-22-2004, 07:12 PM
I dont think they have it open because it failed misreably when i tried too

07-24-2004, 07:01 PM
sry guys, i unexpectidly decided to run down to see my girlfriend..

and now i work 7pm to 7am x3 so i wont be around for a while. but when I do... ;) hell maybe we will release another version of evur in that time... have my people working on it ... while im working ;)

keep on your toes though! it could happen at anytime!

btw, if someone wants to buy a beta server for cheap and test it for us, and be the Mac-Forums temp server, feel free to make it known.

We require a broad band connection
mac osx 10.3
and $ ;)

09-14-2004, 06:01 PM
Evur (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/21287) may be downloaded and the server is up! Download that beast join up the chat, and lets get the M-F community rolling again! I promise another release as soon as our new iMac G5 is sent, and after I renew my license to software development.

So by all means join up! You shall see me in it and hopefully some other MODs.

09-14-2004, 06:40 PM
I'm totally not sure where to find the sever. Is it supposed to be listed somewhere?

09-14-2004, 09:27 PM
thank u very much for getting that open again. i'm not much of a fourm person :p but since theres only myself and graphite on the chat. i think that the rest of u should get on or we should schedual a weekly "MCC" mac community chat. i also realize that lots of use live internationaly so this is open for disgsution.

09-15-2004, 12:06 AM
:) yes join up guys!

09-15-2004, 12:49 AM
Damn, to bad I have to go do other things now

09-15-2004, 11:04 PM
pc version yet?

09-16-2004, 11:30 AM
Give the Pc version a little bit of time yet... though, im sure I could rite a quick one in a day or 2.. perhaps ill do that. But, mac guys.. YOU HAVE A OPEN CHAT ROOM.. and no one is in it! SO get your *** over to it now!

Absolute Zero
09-19-2004, 02:18 PM
You know what sucks? No one is ever in the chat.

09-19-2004, 03:37 PM
what is the point of this over an aim chat room?

09-19-2004, 03:41 PM
Not everyone uses AIM. And many of us use Proteus or Adium which doesn't support group chat at this point. Having a room allows it to be open all the time without someone needing to host it as well.

09-19-2004, 09:11 PM
This way, its also pretty clustered. Perhaps more people would join, if you were to join. I can see the logs and you always log off like 5min before someone else joins. That applies to everyone. :)

so now i demand you all stay in. its just me and mac addikt now.

the more people join the server now, the more motivated i am to continue programming evur

09-19-2004, 09:11 PM
yes. adium r0x0rs .. but still has some vital stuff to be added, such as chat..

evur is coming along.. and is on now. so join .. OR ELSE!

Absolute Zero
09-20-2004, 01:10 AM
Adium has chat support...

09-20-2004, 01:47 PM
For those who were booted last night:
The internet crashed for me, and the server kicked everyone out. But the chat is back up! so join back in! we had a good 6 in at a time!

09-20-2004, 02:29 PM
I was wondering what happened. I think there really needs to be some kind of disconnect notice for the user since to me, I had no idea I was booted until I just logged out on my own and logged back in. Otherwise I would of thought it was just very quiet lol.

09-20-2004, 05:02 PM
There is a notice. it says "Disconnected from server" in red, even if the server fails.

09-20-2004, 09:27 PM
It happened again today, I must have been disconnected and I know I didn't get a any kind of notice. When I logged out and logged back in, there were different people there than when I logged out 3 seconds earlier.

It's almost like it freezes. But I know I'm not getting any kind of notice telling me I'm disconnected.

09-20-2004, 11:30 PM
hmm, do you have the newest version? www.firestormcreation.com/fsevur.html

anyone else having problems?

09-21-2004, 12:35 AM
No probs this way, no worries

09-21-2004, 07:42 AM
Yep, I've got the latest version from the site

09-21-2004, 07:15 PM
Hmm, I really don't have an idea... but Ive gota new server address for you all to connect: evur.dyndns.org

should solve a few problems

09-24-2004, 09:02 AM
Cool, now I don't have to remember that IP ;). I downloaded the .75r version and I'm still having that problem where it disconnects or freezes but I don't get notified. I guess I just won't leave it running for now. I'll just pop in when I'm actually here :)

Absolute Zero
09-24-2004, 02:57 PM
For some reason, my version of Evur will only connect using the 131 IP.

09-25-2004, 07:26 PM
Oh well, this is why I have it under beta ;)

FSC is mostly students and were all pretty busy with school right now, give it a bit before we can devote time to programming.. but it will happen ;)

10-10-2004, 09:30 PM
Can anyone say... TRACKER!? ;)

we have it built, give us a bit and we will have it loaded on the server! but we have it all built and ready to fly!

thanks for the wait!

10-11-2004, 02:05 PM
I just put the IP in a text file so I can paste it every time I log on ;)

10-15-2004, 03:21 AM
ugh, so i have the tracker made and its ready for shipment, but when I try and use it, it gets rejected, as if my host has it blocked... kinda not cool

10-21-2004, 12:28 PM
ok I need to update my imac from 10.01 to 10.1.1 how do I do this? I hasve tried to down load the update but when I try to open them it ghive me a message that it is unable to verify mac os x 10.1.1

10-21-2004, 01:02 PM
If I remember correctly 10.1 is a paid update. To get to 10.1.x you need to get 10.1.

11-25-2004, 01:40 AM
Hello, I'm new, and can't quite figure out how to start a new thread. However, I have a mac question. I just bought a G4 today, I installed protools 5.1 LE on it, and now the computer will not go past the startup mode. It keeps getting stuck at OMS. During instalation, I turned off appletalk in order to install the program correctly, but I can not get past the startup mode. Can anyone help me maybe bypass OMS and get started?

12-05-2004, 09:35 PM
um.. i hvnt had the Evur server up in a long time...
anyone wana buy a server?

12-06-2004, 12:40 PM
put me down for two

01-15-2005, 07:10 PM
its not working for me either, maybe something wrong with the server?

01-16-2005, 03:59 AM
lol, its been down for a while man. sorry. I prolly wont start working on it again for over 6 months.

01-16-2005, 11:49 AM
the IRC chan (http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11677) is always up

01-16-2005, 03:39 PM
yeah use that, unless someone wants to host the tracker and server.
