Question on Online Play

Post by Welshy » Sat Apr 09, 2011 7:28 pm

Would it be possible for a shout box where we can ask large amounts of people to go online and designated a server.

Many Thanks

Well that is possible with a little bit of coding.
Have you heard of IRC Chat? It is possible to integrate that with YS so people that talk in the IRC channel can also talk to the people flying on the YS server.
Check out my python app:

You have to be careful about the Shoutbox, mainly because people will misuse it.

I'll raise the question in the Admins subforum and see what I can come up with.
