    NyanChat announcement !

    Next session will be announced with a new post and I will edit this one with the new details !

    Session over I will start a NyanChat session in about half an hour, 07:00 my time (East-Europe), it is roughly 06:30 here.

    What is NyanChat ?
    It is a collaborative art tool where different people can chat and draw at the same time all at once on same canvas.

    Where can I get it ?
    You can download it from here : http://www.tmeeco.eu/BitShit/NyanChat.rar
    If you don't have WinRAR or 7zip use the self extracting archive : http://www.tmeeco.eu/BitShit/NyanChatSelfExtracting.exe

    How do I join ?
    *You start nyanchat20.exe and will be greeted with a box asking server to connect to and your username.
    *This here is what you enter to the server field : www.tmeeco.eu:2220:20
    *I suggest you put a name that I would recognize in the username box, you cannot change the username later on, only by re-logging on, and in case of connection issues I can make you a "presistent" user so that the stuff you worked on before can be continued when you log in again. Normally the stuff you worked on gets orphaned and you won't be able to continue working on it.
    *Then you click the Connect button.
    *Now, you see a blank screen. Do NOT start a new image. Instead you select "You Can Draw Here" from the "image" list in lower right of the screen.
    *Now you will be on the canvas ! BUUUUUT you can only start drawing when you catch up with what has been happening meanwhile, that involves seeing all the stuff in fast forward until the most recent stuff. At that point you'll be able to actually interact with others. This can take a while when you arrive later on. Just wait, there's nothing you can do about it.

    How do I leave ?
    Just close the program. I suggest you tell when you leave and please don't clear your layers, I would love to have all stuff intact when the final image gets posted.

    Pointers for drawing
    *There's a list of default brushes but they are all pretty funky and not necessarily useful.
    *If the input is really laggy for you then decrease the "correct" value. Your lines will look less smooth but the latency decreases dramatically.
    *Your layers always appear below everyone else's. Layers of other people always appear above yours and the order I am not completely sure of. This makes actual collabing of art a bit difficult as stuff shows up different for each side. When there is no overlap all is fine. This however can cause issues when you have large area painted white, it might seem like blank canvas but in reality nobody else can draw on it because it will appear above their layers. This really is the biggest shortcoming of NyanChat. I am aware of other programs but I never got friends with their brushes or features.
    *If you want pencil like look use these settings :
    Size : 0.5
    Opacity : 100
    PS Opacity : 100
    Spacing 3...20 (controls how dark the line appears)
    Jitter 3...10 (controls how gritty the line is, and also how wide)

    I think this covers most stuff. See you there !

    This was really fun! Unfortunately I got some sort of error ("socket error") at the end, and it appears I was disconnected and couldn't reconnect. Was fun for the while I was on though!

    Looking forward to any future sessions, I almost forgot how fun it is to draw with other people. :3

    Aaah, I was wondering where you suddenly disappeared. Socket error is some connection related error, it is funny you couldn't reconnect though...

    The stuff is still going on ! 5+ hours later lol.

    This has been an absolute blast so far and I'm sure future ones aren't gonna be any worse

    Todays's session ended some moments ago. I will do more of these in future for sure. All comes down to organizing stuff. I am not sure what is the best time for the folks here. It doesn't help I'm in Europe, most people seem to be on the other side of the world...

    I'm gonna post the result on my Weasyl page shortly !

    Roughly midnight I think. I'm 6...10 hours ahead of USA.

    So, my question is what times would be ideal to you people here ? And be sure to include your time zone. I imagine most of you will be at the Americas.
    I'll try to come up with something that is least inconvenient to most. It is hard to find a nice middle ground when I'm from Europe and have a shit sleep schedule due to disorders.

    Mine's an interesting case, since I'm in Mountain Time Zone, but I sleep based off of GMT +1 thanks to my work schedule.

    (I missed the session last night! ;-; )

    The questions run too deep
    For such a simple man.
    Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
    I know it sounds absurd
    But please tell me who I am."
