    I know they are out there but where the hell are they? My goals are to work on a comic script with a bunch of friends. I know its not the best solution but shouldn't matter. So where are they? Thanks for any help I can get.

    Basically something a bunch of us can work on at the same time and use easily, my friends aren't the most computer literate, and acess easily.

    celtx. It's multi-platform and free. 'Collaborative media pre-production software'. It's all I use for scripts of all kinds.

    I was looking more for something that I can use online and use simultaneously with other people. I haven't really considered using celtx for comic scripts, but I may have to consider using it for that. But right now I am trying to find something free easy to use that me and my friends can use simultaneously on the net.

    Google docs? Dunno if you want to trust them with your script, but it was sort of okay back in the day it was called Writely

    Otherwise there might be Abiwords Collaborate service?

    Do you mean simultaneously in real time? Like World of Warcraft except writing - five people in different locations watching the script on their screen update in real time as someone types? Then I can't help you.

    But celtx allows multiple people to work on the same project online. You have to register with them, then set up the project with everyone's username, and walla! Everyone can work on the script. I assume there are features that allow merging of changes and edit locks so that changes don't get overwritten, but I haven't gotten that deep into a collaborative project with it as yet thus far.

    Wouldn't that pretty much qualify as a chat room? I could also see that going down the path of some really awful role-play scripts.

    I'm with Spider. I've used Google Docs on a couple of collaborative treatments and it's worked without a hitch. Plus it tracks all your changes so it's easy to see what mutations a draft's going through.
