Hey everyone,

A wild IRC web client has appeared on the site! It is set to automatically connect you to irc.chatspike.net#arcen and give you a random nickname (Kinda). You can check it out for yourself here: https://arcengames.com/irc/irc.cgi

Any and all feedback is welcome!
Come help out at the Wiki!

This seems to still be alive, from what I can tell.  I was just testing logging in via EasyIRC, a C# component that will be in AI War 2 before too long!

Will this be the intended way for players to chat in coop games then?

No, this would be a way for players to communicate if they are not playing together, but still want to chat with someone.  It's a long-requested feature for AI War Classic.  You might be playing co-op with friends or solo or whatever, but might still have the IRC chat available in the game to talk to just whoever else feels like being in there too.  But text chat to your local co-op players wouldn't be run through this at all.
