    Certainly a brilliant homebrew idea that has much potential. The biggest flaw with Pictochat was that it could only perform ad-hoc chatting.

    Woctochat is basically a clone of Pictochat that allows 2 DS consoles to connect together using their IP addresses.

    I'm lost with this IP setting...

    Does this mean that I can enter, let's say 123.456.7.89 and anyone in the world that enters that same IP can chat with me?

    You have to run a server first, but if you try and run the Server.exe packaged with it, good luck. The file does not run! Horrj!

    Seems to have potential, but pretty useless anyway. : D you can always draw in messenger. But still good if it works.

    Yes, assuming 123.456.7.89 is running server.exe.

    It doesn't work yet. Don't bother with it until a new version is released.

    He claims that the server now works, but only for 1 person at a time.
