Listed below are 23 different language versions of MSChat 2.5 (Comic Chat), and the five language versions of Character Editor. Instead of a drop down menu form, all the programs are shown so you can see the available languages along with their perspective installation progam file names. Please write down the download filename so you can easily find it after downloading in order to install it.

Click on the desired language to download the installation file. Select "Save to disk" and direct the download to a convenient folder such as your desktop. Double click the downloaded file to start installation. It is recommended you accept the default destination directories. Once installed, return to Phoenix Character Nexus to download color characters and backgrounds. The reccommended installation location in all versions of Windows is: ' C:\Program Files\Microsoft Chat '

NOTE: Since this is an older program from Microsoft, it contains an out dated certificate. Therefore newer versions of Windows will not recognize the certificate and will alert you that it is undesirable to install. Rest assured, this program is safe to install ...and a whole lot of fun!

Click "Home" for access to characters, backgrounds, sounds, a comprehensive help section, tutorials and much more.
