    I created a simple IRC client for the Wii U that uses an attached USB keyboard to type.

    icon.png

    Steps to connect:
    1. Choose your keyboard layout: (1) US, (2) UK, (3) JAP (4) DANISH (5) FR (6) GER (7) ITA (8) DUTCH (9) POR (0) SPA (F1) RUS
    2. Enter your username
    3. Enter your password
    4. Enter the channel to connect to
    5. Profit!

    To exit, either press the HOME Button before you connect, or the ESCAPE key twice after you connect. The HOME Button is iffy it will work after you connect.

    It currently only connects to chat.freenode.net but I may upgrade the client in the future. All logging is shown on the TV. All messages sent to you directly or in the channel are shown on the DRC. The typing line is on the bottom of the DRC. Channel messages are sent to the channel when you press Enter, to send a raw message, i.e. PRIVMSG <user> :message, press the F12 key.

    The client now stores URLs that it parses, only URLs starting with http are parsed and saved to the list. It stores up to 30 URLs. Show last stored URL with F5. Cycle through the URLs with F6 and F7, and launch the URL with F8.

    The HBL version of the app now only properly works with the non-channel version of HBL v1.4, but now comes with an installable channel for itself. The app disables URL opening if you use the channel version of HBL.

    Download link is here - http://wiiubru.com/appstore/#/app/lameIRCU
    Installable channel link is here - http://www.wiiubru.com/appstore/chan_zips/lameIRCU.zip

    Version History:
    v1.11 - Added up/down scrolling using arrow keys and page up/down keys. Fixed several bugs.
    v1.10 - Added NUMPAD support, Changed shortcut F1 - open this help thread in app, Added shortcut F4 - list users in channel, Added shortcut F5 - display latest URL parsed, Added shortcut F6 - display next stored URL, Added shortcut F7 - display older stored URL, Added shortcut F8 - open displayed URL, Added repeat support for delete key, Added cursor on input line, and Created installable channel
    v1.06 - No longer logs every PING or PONG, to cut down on logging activity while you are away.
    v1.05 - Fixed all UTF-16 problems, you can now use the # sign, as well as hopefully other characters on foreign keyboards.
    v1.04 - Added Danish, French, German, Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish, and Russian keyboard layouts, fixed quitting, must now press ESCAPE key twice and it will properly quit the client.
    v1.03 - Added Italian Keyboard Support, fixed quitting with ESCAPE key, fixed various bugs.
    v1.02 - Added sending raw commands with F12 instead of Enter, i.e. PRIVMSG <username> :message. Also did some minor bug fixes.
    v1.01 - Added listing users on DRC by pressing F1 and # for channel is added for you.
    v1.00 - Initial Release

    Future Additions Planned:
    Parsing URL links to open in Internet Browser
    GX2 version???

    Have fun!

    Dude this is probably the best thing you've made, fucking awesome man! One step closer for the Wii U homebrew library closer to the Wii console library.

    This was the easiest thing I ever made. LOL

    If only people realized how complicated Ast-U-Roids and U-Paint were to make, especially considering when I made them, and we had a very limited amount of space to work with when programming.

    But I'm glad you like this, I hope I can keep making great homebrew.

    I just updated this, I realized I was sending the user and pass commands in the wrong order. This is now fixed, so redownload if you downloaded before I posted this. It's not worth making a completely new version. :P

    If you don't have Mocha already started, how are you going to start an unsigned channel? Making it into a channel is pretty useless.

    Using haxchi, let's say you want to use your fat32 hdd instead of your SD card to run apps, running mocha would do that in case your SD card reader dies or something,so having mocha as an installable channel serves as a reassurance in case your card reader or even your SD card breaks or dies ,and they did for some people.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Also haxchi cfw users would be able to benefit from the use of mocha , like switching between the SD card and fat 32 hdd with a click.

    Thanks to @rw-r-r_0644 doing some RE, LameIRCU now has Italian Keyboard support. I hope to keep adding more layout support as we can RE them.

    The app is now v1.03 - Added Italian Keyboard Support, fixed quitting with ESCAPE key, fixed various bugs.

    If you have a keyboard layout not here, just contact me and we can work on adding it, if you can test for me.
