dd_chat (formerly known as dd_ntalk-door) is a chat system derived from ntalk to be used with the DayDream BBS. The dd_chat client is a "door" program for the DayDream BBS that provides an easy-to-use chat client for the dd_chat server. Unlike the original ntalk client / server system, dd_chat implements several features from DayDream's libdd as well as an extended command set. It integrates seamlessly into DayDream. It features private conversation, checking for remaining BBS online time, chat idle timeouts (five minutes, except when in "away" mode), support for an ANSI logo and ANSI help screens from DayDream's "display" directory, and updating user status in DayDream.

Release Notes: This release adds a "/msg" command for sending private messages between users in chat. This version will be released as "dd_chat" due to the significant number of changes in order to document the change from the original ntalk codebase towards a new implementation based on an extended codebase.
Release Notes: Code cleanup and optimization were done. Copyright information was fixed. A simple flood trigger was added.
Release Notes: A new timeout counter was implemented, which checks the remaining online time and chat idle timeouts from DayDream's libdd API. Support was added for reading an ANSI logo and a seperate ANSI help screen from DayDream's "display" directory. Also, a default help screen and logo are now included. The archive now also contains the original ntalk client and server code.
