Hosting a Chatroom on the WinMX Network
Your first decision will be whether you want to host your channel with WinMX, or one of the 3rd Party Servers.While WinMX is perfectly capable of hosting a chat channel. In my opinion it is not the optimal choice.
However there is no one size fits all solution. Most of the Servers are color friendly for users using WinMX 3.53 or a Chat Client that can display color.
Do you want to run a RCMS type command structure or not? If you do, then Ouka would be your best alternative.
Chatserver that runs the WinMX 3.53 protocol using 3.53 protocol commands only. Color Friendly. Stable and solid performance.
Ouka [Instruction] [Download]
Ouka allows for a wide range of options, but it is easy to set up. The download page is not in english, however you should have no trouble seeing the english for ouka on the page (about 1/3 of the way down) Setup is easy, simply take the 4 files located in the zip file, and place them in a folder of their own. Then open the file ChatServer.exe. You will be Chatserver for 3.53 Protocol Channel, but allows RCMS Commands. Color Friendly, includes word replacement. Stable. There have been reported issues with A few people running it with WinMX. But still a viable choice for hosting.
The second or third generation of the KM flavor of chat hosting. Stable, with Color, Blockword, and a Admin system it calls "Advanced".
New Chatserver, more of a beta than a complete package. But it shows promise.
New Chatserver from Nushi.
FxServer is a new server client that shows a lot of promise. Seems to be based off the 3.53 Protocols.
