Solixa Worms is a brand new snooper with a separate buddy list window and tabbed private message window. Tons of features to make your worm life easier. I am still beta testing and adding new features but once everything is finished it will be one hell of a snooper!


  • Different options to sort the channel list.
  • Profile look up that links to this site. Heres my profiles: People:Elixer or People:Solixa
  • Auto responses while away
  • Ignore non buddy join/quit/part messages (removes the clutter)
  • Join AnythingGoes and chat.
  • Auto Login on startup.
  • Join games hosted on Wormnet. (Will test connection before opening worms)
  • Auto ping hosts (measures lag level).
  • Host W:A Wormnet games.
  • Configuration of rank and flag.
  • Entire Interface Minimizes to tray; notifies you on private messages.
  • Hides automatically in system tray when joining/hosting games.
  • Alerts room when your game is over and you have returned to the chat.
  • Change color-scheme using templates.
  • Separate Buddy list Window with live updates in real time. (Idle and when they signed in)
  • MSN style alerts for all sorts of stuff. (can turn on and off)
  • Sound notifications.
  • Graphical Smileys.
  • Displays all Wormnet flags and ranks.


If you receive a "Run-time error '339'. Component '?????.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." when attempting to start Solixa worms its probably because you are missing some .ocx files. you can download the Visual Basic runtime files from Microsoft using the links below.

If you still have problems, please try restarting as this seems to help after installing additional controls.

Please post any problems you are having on the talk page.
