I was talking about a combined IM for Linux similar to trillian, not as part
of the game. altough it might be of intrest to note that i plan on
programming a seperate chat server ( without the user noticing it ) because
comunication between players is vital and is the bulk of the traffic, and a
lot of chatting during a battle might cause lag which you want to avoid at
such a point.
But tnx for the ideas
