Please make this official / bigger with server support. I'd unironically use and suggest this to every friend

Could even easily this to Steam with Steamworks server support or something, would be epic
Could easily see it taking off
This is great, would love to be able to set up servers with portforwarding so I can use this with my friends online too.
i wish i could play this but sadly my internet isnt so great and plus only i use this network =(
Yoo, its so cool that someone else remembers this service. I still use it when at an airport to see if anyone is actually on. lol
If I do ever visit an airport again I'll take my DS, Hopefully we'll run into each other someday :)!
Any possibility for a port to iOS devices? My best friend has an iOS while I'm stuck with Android and I would really like to try this out with him as we sometimes can't talk and support each other thanks to teachers qwq
Sorry but I'm currently not planning on releasing FroggieChat on iOS... The process is a bit too much hassle to consider it right now, but if demand for an iOS/OSX version increases I'll reconsider :).
Kinda bummed you can't drag letters like in the original pictochat. Still great though!
Wow someone finally noticed!
I deliberately kept that feature out to see if players actually felt they'd benefit from that feature.
Do you think your chatting experience would be better if you could drag letters?
I'm having some trouble getting a phone, wired LAN and wifi computer to see each other's messages. Yes, they're in the same network. Any idea why it could be?
Probably cross-platform issues
There's a lot of reasons why you might not be able to connect to each other on the same network. Usually the problem is with the network itself. For example corporate or school networks may prevent devices from finding each other.
Something to try might be to create a hotspot on your phone, connect your pc to the hotspot and try and message from there.
(Do note that usually wired connected devices and Wi-Fi connected devices don't go together very well...)
I hope you figure it out, let me know if you need anything! :)
You should try turning your firewall off on Windows. That made it work for me. Of course, turn it back on right after. The best would be to make an allow-rule in the firewall to allow froggychat.
Will premium content come to android as well?
Currently I don't plan on bringing to premium version to android as well but if there's a significant demand I'll consider it. :)
For the people who paid will their be a update where u dont have to be on same wifi
Sorry to disappoint but the game was deliberately designed to only work on the same network. Yes it's technically possible, but as the original didn't have an online chat, FroggieChat won't either.
curious, would hamachi work with this?
I didn't know about Hamachi? I suppose as long as UDP broadcasting and TCP connections don't break it should work?
Let me know if you try it out?
that moment when you have friends but you owe your parents 20$
THIS IS SO COOL!
this will be great once LAN parties are possible again
This is honestly a really good reacreation of Pictochat!! It sucks that you cant chat with other people with different wifi, but keeps it original.
THIS IS SO COOL
Hello! Is there any chance it will be possible to chat on different wifis?
