For Some reason I can't play on a local network with my friends

Really awesome concept and base, but there's certainly massive room for improvement.
First and foremost, the ability to resize (dynamically) would make things so much nicer, and not be confined to multiple predefined sizes
Secondly, sound design; I know it sounds silly but this application could seriously benefit from some softer, more user-friendly sounds. Things like the clear sound effect, send, etc. are very harsh on the ears and I find myself muting the application very often.
Thirdly, polish! Please, more polish would make using this so, SO much better. Things like:
- Enlarging icons when the mouse is hovering over them
- Small animations for user feedback when you do things like clear your messaging area, send a message, or long-press on the pen icon. Something like screen shake or a small border that quickly flashes would make your actions feel much smoother.
And lastly, for PC users, please please PLEASE allow us to use SHIFT + ENTER, or just ENTER to send a message. It'd make things much nicer.
Seriously though, amazing app, and I hope this grows and becomes more refined over time.
There's no one online. Ever.
would you ever consider releasing to steam so that the game could be played online using their servers? personally i think it would pop off.
Minor issue, every time I leave and rejoin a room it adds up the amount of people in the room. It's like it never decreases the number when you leave a room.
Another issue, the built-in keyboard is too small to type with on my phone. Even with a stylus. Could we have a UI scale just like the PC version? My phone has a 1440p screen, but so does most phone nowadays. Another way to do this would be to be able to use the Android keyboard of your liking.
Seconding the keyboard being too small.
While we're at it, the Windows version could use the enter key mapped to send message.
Hey, I had to turn off my firewall for it to work on Windows. Can you please tell me what ports it uses so that I can make an allow-rule?
Hey, uh… do you do anything to prevent memory leaks? Doing literally anything leaks memory. Even just deleting letters or blanking your canvas leaks memory (even if your canvas was already blank), which if anything should free some up… Of course, the issue is significantly worse when you actually do send messages or when multiple people are in the room.
So, you can chat with anyone also using this within ~65 feet?
if there was a make this so you could make chatrooms with passwords so you can chat with freinds on it, but overall this is a real good concept!
how do I download the android version
find it on google play
Thank, I was able to edit my spelling error in a post I can't see anymore. Awesome. :)
Hi! First of all: great game!
BUT my friends can see me without them seeing each other or me seeing them!
cuteee but please make a build for linux wehh
but when i downloaded it worked. and the next day i got this message so yeah. do you know what is this?
i got this message :
the application could not start properly (0x000007b)
The deluxe version comes with some extra colors and a crown 👑. Press & hold on the color field to pick any of the 36 colors.
Would be cool if this could be ported to be an XMPP client
Wine should work for this, but I'd love MacOS and Linux ports. For Linux, I'd say do a Ubuntu port since it's widely used.
Crying I bought this thinking it had online lobbies so I could draw with friends...
Noo it's fine I think it's a great app. I'll find a use for it some day and I certainly won't miss a dollar. <3 - More just wishing it had online support, but keeping the app pure to the OG experience is a valid reason not to.
What did you program this game in?
is there actually people on there
i do want to give this a go dos the android verstion use google play surviaces? , also can you put apk on itch.io as well so i can use a android itch.io client (like mitch ) to download it?
also this is a bit more unreasable but a native linux verstion will be fun and maby even a rasburry pi (zero ,4 ) verstion with controller support? imagine useing a case like the gpicase or the raspi0 choud be good fun to use this on a gameboy like shell
I just got the app but I don't have anyone to talk to. Will you make FroggieChat ever have the option to connect to other people who aren't on the same wifi like other social media platforms? (I know its meant to be like pictochat but theres so much more possibilities for this app to have)
Will this come in iPhone as a future feature?
hello! this game is adorable, except for the fact that it's pretty much unplayable for me. whenever my brother (on the same wifi) on android sends messages i can't see them, but he sees my messages sent from PC just fine. everyone else in my family uses android, so this is a problem. are there any plans for a mac or iOS port, and is anyone else havin' this problem?
When I send my Windows PC and two Android devices to the same room, my PC can see everything the Android devices send, but the Android devices can't receive anything (from the PC or from each other)?
is there a way to get premium on a phone?
Looks REALLY promising <3
So nostalgic. Would love to be able to host a server for this so we don't have to be on the same network.
Something that kinda bugs me: the app can’t decide between the spelling “Froggy” or “Froggie” (ex. logo is froggie, window title and unity data folder name are froggy). Would also be nice if we could disable some of the movement or import our own graphics/sounds for additional nostalgia. Final request is support for entering text on the standard Android software keyboard in the Android port, the keys are a little small for touchscreens. Other than those, I love it!
edit: oh yeah, the Android version also doesn’t have any way to run Deluxe. Would be nice if that could be added to the downloads here.
edit 2: Mac and Linux builds would also be nice, they should be very easy to create since that just requires a few clicks in Unity.
PROS: drawing tools are very accurate, would be fun at a real-world LAN party demoscene event.
CONS: I don't like that it automatically assumes my name from my Windows login name. That makes me really uncomfortable for something with online access.
App is LAN only and the constantly scrolling background can't be turned off. Barf.
releasing a lan-only message board during a pandemic is so evil and i love it
This is so awesome!!! Love to see this, chatting with my friends on Pictochat at sleepovers is a good memory for me.
This is such an amazing project but the fact you have to be on the same wifi network really bums me out. If there are any plans to make this able to connect to people accross the net; let me know! I'd donate to you for the cause.
no it's just like pictochat, remember? this is true nostalgia
Windows Defender says it protected my PC from this...
re-download it and press more info when it says dont run and then it should say run anyways
This is such a good recreation of PictoChat! I would actually recommend this to anyone instead of any messaging application. Cant wait for more updates, keep up the good work!
I like artist!!!! Love it!!!(and the text font is cool)
Wow ... faithful remake, lots of memories with Pictochat!
Hey, sorry if this has already been asked, but is the paid version also available on Android? I downloaded the 4 colour version, but can't see a way to get the full version.
