The in-game chat has never worked for me before. Is it even supposed to? The only thing I can really do is go on the IRC chat in a web browser.
It's probably because my Steam name can't be recognized by it.

??r?

If we had the option to change our name in the chat independantly from your Steam name that would be fabulous.
Thank you!

the IRC in game has been working since 1.2, if its hanging at "couldnt resolve host name" dont pay that any mind and let it sit there for a bit as it will continue past that, not sure if its not recognizing your name what is the reasoning that you believe that to be the case?

It also never used to work with my old in-game username 'Mark' as it's a popular name used on IRC. So the IRC chat has always been a mystery to me. Again, a way to change your name seperately on the IRC chat would be really nice.

Mark what characters are you using for spelling out your name? is the M a non-english character for your steam account?

Yes, ? isn't the standard english M. I actually got the letters from this site here (http://fsymbols.com/generators/encool/) by repeating it until I got ones I liked. It works fine in-game, it's just the IRC chat doesn't support them.

Yeah I looked into it the reason that you are getting the "Erroneous Nickname" is due to your name having what the irc is regarding as illegal characters same as if you had other symbols in your name like - or if you started your name with numbers. which is very common practice with irc's

Mark, I just spent 30 minutes playing with that symbol generator, with my names and friends names and secret codes, etc. Why oh why did you have to show me that it existed?

So should I post this on the Early Access feedback forum or do developers come on to here? I'm sure I can't be the only one who this is a pain for.

Developers do indeed come here, but you may want to post the error report in the official update thread (http://www.berserk-games.com/forum/beta-feedback-1/399/) just to make sure it's seen, though.
