Microsoft V-Chat V-Chat was a freeware 2. The program, not counting the worlds within, was last updated on March 24 and stayed online until being discontinued in March V-Chat rooms were represented in a 3D environment chah users were free to explore.
The only pre-packaged frfe were a Lobby and a so-called Homespace, leaving the rest to be downloaded as the user went from place to place exploring the interconnected Microsoft-hosted rooms. Users were represented by flat sprites with a front and back view, reminiscent of cardboard cut-outs, lacking animation outside of a range of gestures users could use to express themselves.
These avatars could be edited in any image editing software as simple as mspaint, and could be ed to a website so that chatt users could see them as well. One of its biggest selling points was the never-before-seen ability to "mingle" with users by actually walking up to them in virtual space. It was hardly the first-ever "virtual reality" chat program, however: Worlds Inc's Worlds Chat, now more commonly known as Worlds.
Though V-Chat 1. The problem is that, as stated above, the virtual environments did not come with V-chat. The servers that hosted them have long since died off, and it is at this point nigh impossible to find backups of these worlds.
Even the few archived s that remain are littered with dead links and incomplete collections. Some sites like Varian's Dreamfare are at the time of writing this still online and hosting custom content, but the original Microsoft-hosted rooms are long lost. That is where this comes in.
I am in possession of the last few remaining backups of V-Chat worlds and utilities. If any others exist, they are not publicly free.
This is a gay locker room for archivists and a museum for those that had fond memories of this long-forgotten little fhat. Please contact me if you happen to have any worlds missing from my collection, additional information on who made them, details and sources on the sounds, music and textures used, or corrections to any information listed on these s. Windows XP runs V-Chat relatively well, albeit with a few graphical issues, while Windows 95 runs it flawlessly even on a Virtual PC though getting internet set up on this can be cumbersome at best.
