To respond to a couple of the past comments. Just recently found that our software was listed here.

No shill's. We don't solicit comments from anyone, ever.

Porn? There isn't any porn in any of the graphics we put on our site. User created Manors that's up to the owner. Or was the another users prop? We do try to discourage off color avatars on our O&O sites, but it sometimes happens. Tech solutions are being considered.

What the graphics look like are entirely up to the site owner. We only actually run one chat site. The Manor software besides being chat software is also a set of tools for anyone to build their own chat environment.

I absoloutely agree with all the negative comments.

Who in their right mind would pay $20 for some cheesy looking kiddy made graphics. And if you don't then you are bombarded with porno ads?

WTF?

Get real. Nice touch using a shill to try and defend this lame chat client too. Like we don't know you're trying to peddle this crap that belongs on a 1980's computer.

PPC only. Nice touch. Shows how much thought and work goes into making this scam.

Utter crap. The modeling is in Bryce, the sprites are sub-1994 standards, and within the first 'room' i went into, I was more than a little surprised to find a picture of hardcore pornography gracing my screen. This is the kind of software that needs to not exist, I'm sorry internet.

Thbis 0.12.7 version allows added live data flag for spot graphics (i.e. webcams) AND
• Fix for memory leak when spot graphic is updated
• Fix for crash when importing large images to the prop editor

It's a solid bugfix and feature update

The Best in visual chat IS The Manor. Full features continue to roll in, copy from Log, and advanced scripting fromm the man who made Palace work. Just try out http://www.Norcy.com/ for your custom made to order cyborg today! The Manor continues to push the standards for visual chat forward despite those who cling to Palace and its gritty interface and buggy features and difficult scripting. Now you can try the full suite of features for 30 days and then come to guest=member Manors to continue to chat for free, so there is developing a new type of Manor community, the free Manor and the member Manor. Now you can choose what you want. Get off your gritty yesterday chat interface and get with the best....The Manor!!!

Why is it that im banned from the manor yet once again!? OH maybe cuz im developing simaliar software but giving it out for FREE and they can't handle the fact that i might want to actual use the manor...
The Manor is actual a rather nice piece of software, but if you're on OS X and want to log on to and chat with actual Palace users maybe you should try out PalaceChat.
