Forum shoutbox to game-chat.

Live updates should be possible with sockets.

You should write the ingame messages with a shoutbox bot account. Transfer them either with callRemote or with sockets (requires a listening socket on the forum).

On the otherside you have to extend the shoutbox code to send new messages to the server over a socket.

It depends on your forum, and if your web hoster supports mysql sharing. You could call the messages with the db functions and let the code update everytime theres a message added, and let the code output the latest message in the chatbox.

Free webhostings mostly don't support mysql sharing over other sources tho.
