Greetings gamers!

Have you ever felt the need to chat with your friends without opening the osu! client? You might've ran into your typical IRC clients used by basically everyone like mIRC and HexChat just to realize that they look old and bloated as hell.

Then you look around for some osu! specific client and you find irc4osu (which has been dead since 2016). You suddenly lose all hope...

...this is where my client steps in.



chat4osu! is a project I have been working for several years already (casually). I've been moving from framework to framework, refactoring code from scratch until I finally decided on what I call chat4osu!. I specifically didn't include IRC in the name because the migration to the new APIv2 with OAuth is planned and I'm fully devoted to it.

But I thought to myself, just another IRC client wouldn't cut it. That's when the reffing features got implemented. I'm fully aware of Script-chan, but that just takes away the reffing experience and does everything for you. So I just went with features that help you out, like displaying players + slots and the current map. The whole range of features is listed below, and if you're missing something, feel free to leave a comment or open an issue on the GitLab page. I'm pretty active!

Also keep in mind that this project is in it's beta stages. If you find any issues, make sure to report them. Joining the discord would also work!



General
- Windows and Linux supported
- simplistic design inspired by Discord
- player listing for individual channels
- clickable links using the link format [https://blabla example]
- links and usernames open your preferred browser
- your credentials are saved until you decide to log out
- your previous channels are all saved even after closing the client
- save chatlog with /savelog, /save or /log
- powered by Electron (framework used for Slack, Discord, etc)
- auto-update to make your lazy life easier
- future-proof for APIv2 + OAuth
- open source!!

Referee features for multiplayer lobbies
- detect teams + taken slots
- detect current map + mods
- detect win condition + team mode
- send quick 1-click commands
--> refresh = !mp settings
--> start in 10s = !mp start 10
--> abort = !mp abort

Planned
see the GitLab backlog

since the exe is generated by GitLab directly, windows 10 has no information on it so it displays the following message

I can assure you it is safe to open it (More info -> start anyways)

For linux, a similar thing must be done. You must make the AppImage executable.

If you had chat4osu! previously installed, it should automatically update.

I would also like to thank everyone who spread the word about my client, especially in tournament servers. I appreciate it!
