Beta Test Released
Yesterday, the xat admins released 5 sports powers for me to distribute to users for beta testing. Unfortunately, a huge glitch occurred affecting all xat users; so the xat admins had to pull it off of update 909012. Early this morning, at about 2:23 AM MST, Wednesday, September 23, 2009 I received confirmation from the xat admins that they had fixed the glitch and once again, updated flash to 909022!
What You Can Do with the SPORTS Power if you are a SPORTS Fan
The SPORTS power is a blast because you can turn your smilie into your favorite football or soccer player. You can select the jersey color, jersey number and if a football player you can select the color of helmet. For example, my favorite NFL football player at the moment is the Quarter Back of the Philadelphia Eagles, Donovan McNabb. So I will use the SPORTS power and turn my smilie into a football shaped smilie, dressed in a green jersey with the number 5 on it and add green helmet.
Not a SPORTS Fan? You Can Still Have Fun with the SPORTS Power
Even if you are not a sports fan it is fun to use the SPORTS power to give your smilie a little bit of “stylie” by dressing him/her in your favorite colored shirt in and/or personalizing the shirt by adding your favorite number.
SPORTS Power Codes
The smilie codes at the moment are (shirt)(soccer)(football)(shirts)(num)(ball)(bb) and currently you have to use # after each one. Hopefully, that will be fixed soon. for more information on sport power please check out the official xat sport wiki page

Next xat has added a baseball that code is (Ball) to do a baseball the right way do this code (Ball#ffffff) this is a real baseball if you ask me the (baseball) all alone looks like it was in a dirty swamp. xat has uploaded the smilies to
