DefNet Client Public Beta 4 Released!
#1
The standalone server browser and chat client for the game DefCon is now released as Public Beta 4.


Quote:What is DefNet Client?
 
 It's a combined chat-client and server-browser for primarly the game DefCon, by Introversion.

Features:
 - List all active DefCon-servers together with players and scores on those servers.
 - Chat-client on an irc-like network, so DefCon-players can find others to nuke into oblivion.
 - Chat-client uses dynamic encryption-keys and variable encryption-level, up to 448bit*.
 - Have a very small memory footprint and is very cheap on the CPU.
