• Vapor - Cross Platform Steam Client
    443 replies, posted
Hello all. I'd like to introduce some software that I've developed over the past few days. The program is called "Vapor", and it's a cross platform Steam client. Right now Vapor only supports chatting with immediate friends on your friends list, but there is plenty of room for more features in the future. Here's a few screenshots of what the client looks like on my Ubuntu VM. [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/99606/osw_stuff/vapor2.png[/img] [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/99606/osw_stuff/vapor.png[/img] Keep in mind that the client also works on windows systems. I've also made a short video demo of the client in action: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pz1hB_yBHpM[/media] This software is entirely open source, and should be considered a WIP. There will be bugs. [release] You can download a compiled version here: [url]https://bitbucket.org/VoiDeD/steamre/downloads[/url] The source is available here: [url]https://bitbucket.org/VoiDeD/steamre/src/c313be47b4bc/Projects/Vapor/[/url] Vapor is written in C#, and [i]should[/i] be compatible with the most recent versions of Mono. [/release] For more information on the Steam networking library that powers Vapor, check this thread: [url]http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1056407-SteamRE-Reversing-the-Steam-protocol[/url] If anyone has any suggestions or feature requests, I'd be happy to hear them.
Nice job. Will definitely download and try it out.
This is the greatest (maybe..) thing I've seen come out of this section.
I hope Valve will allow for this

Awesome. I can see this coming in handy. Great job.
Now do this on Android and you can have my babies. Every single baby.
Has anyone done this before? This is a huge milestone in getting steam to work on other platforms than mac and windows.

It says I can't connect to the auth server.
Can we expect a CLI version of this? :)

Is the API available? Should get an online version using AJAX up for any mobile with a browser.

Looks incredible, well done.
I would pay $5 for a iOS or Android version. This is great.
Coincidentally, I've been making a chat client for my school software class which I started last year under the name "Vapour". It was named Vapour because it can go transparent which is [B]very [/B]useful to become inconspicuous in class. Coincidence?

Holy shit, I've been waiting for something like this for ages to run on my shitty old laptop. [i]Thank you![/i]
I'm about to test this to see if it'll run on my nokia n900 (a Maemo smartphone). Having a Steam client for my phone would be neat. What UI toolkit does Vapor use? Is it something integrated with Mono? EDIT: oh fuck standalone mono i'm totally integrating this into the phone's conversations framework
Oh god if an iOS version was released too [IMG]http://i55.tinypic.com/qzn253.jpg[/IMG]
I get this error at college although they are probably blocking some ports. --------------------------- Vapor --------------------------- Unable to login to Steam2: Unable to get a list of Steam2 authentication servers. --------------------------- OK ---------------------------
i saw something similar in the opensteamworks svn the other day. Also the auth server error happens when your password is incorrect. Alsoo [img]http://cold.netburst.co.uk/file/SS-2011-02-07_13.11.52.png[/img] Hmmm
Is a Symbian client possible?
