    Default #wipeoutzone IRC

    IRC is like a big chat room, devided into channels. It can be really handy to set up racing tournaments and races.

    You can join us on the irc.quakenet.org server in #wipeoutzone (port is the default 6667).

    If you have never used IRC before, I have a guide for you!

    1. go to
    http://mirc.com/
    2. click on 'Download mIRC'
    3. pick a mirror, any mirror
    4. When the box pops up, hit 'Save' and select whatever folder you like to save chat programs in. Or make a whole new one!
    5. Once it downloads (and it shouldn't take more than a few minutes) find that folder you put it in.
    6. Run Install
    7. When it offers, tell it to Launch mIRC.
    8. Either register or just continue (up to you at this point)
    9. Fill in forms however you like. REMEMBEr, if in doubt about a form, just leave it blank/as is. The only form on the general Connect page that really matters is your Nickname. Suggestion: use your forum handle or PSN name to make you recognizable.
    10. In the left menu, go to Servers.
    11. Scroll to and select any of the Quakenet server categories.
    12. CONNECT to Server
    13. either add #wipeoutzone to your channel list, or close channel selection window and enter /join #wipeoutzone
    14. Enjoy our magnificent presence!

    Note - there are many different IRC chat clients so you don't have to use mIRC. I, for one, use the IRC client bundled with Trillian and the set-up process is similar. All you really need is the server info, a nickname, and the channel name.

    Quakenet Account Registration

    In IRC, type: /msg Q hello. This will make the Q bot talk to you. Just follow the directions, and if you have any questions, ask in this topic or in #wipeoutzone.
    I haven't wrote this guide, Rhoulette made it
    Source (by Rhoulette!)

    I have set the channel so that you can change the topic when you start racing. To do this you right-click in the main screen (where the chat is) and select "channel modes". A window will pop up and you'll see the line "Topic History:". When you go online, you should edit your name in the topic, like this :"Racing: [zargz, stin, rageagainstgeorge] game: [zargz;woz]"(nevermind the "square1" part, it's the black color). I used zargz, stin and rageagainstgeorge in this example, with the WOZ tournament hosted with name "zargz and password "woz".
    The main topic format is:
    Code:
    Racing: [name1, name2, name3, xxx] game: [gamename;password]
    If you have any questions regarding this point, ask in the topic or on IRC.

    You could also use the Web Applet (thanks Orgy!). This doesn't require anything but a browser and Javascript, but it is slower and doesn't give you the mIRC advanced options.

    finally someone who adapts zerojoy's and my idea . weve already opened a channel on efnet, but we could as well go to quakenet. im on both networks anyway.
    it just makes more sense than msn in my opinion.

    can someone please point me at a list of quakenet servers? or list a couple in here? I deleted everything except the 3 networks I use (undernet, freenode, and enterthegame) from my client

    you can still join us. technicolour, zerojay and me are almost always on.

    ------------------

    for those of you who are not familiar with the use of irc clients:
    you can also use this Web Applet. just fill in your nick and press connect.
    we also managed to get L into the channel, so things are developing.

    btw: sorry for double post, but editing somehow didnt work (or i was too stupid) ?

    Nope, you click the link, type in a nickname and you'll join the channel. The only thing is that it's web-based, this means you don't have the advanced stuff. You can view the topic though.

    The web applet is fine, but it loads faster for me with the mIRC client, so it`s worth the effort to download this, and you get more features apparently. I got it here with no problems. It`s just a big chat room and should be just the job. Is it possible to make temporary rooms within the main room too?

    not quite. you can only create "temporary" rooms by themselfs. see, every chatroom on irc basically has the same functuallity and is not dependent on any other chatroom.
    but noone is holding you from taking #lunar (just checked ... its free) for instance. everyone joining this channel will be able to chat with you and it wouldn't have any dependencies to #wipeoutzone at all. completly standalone.

    the only thing you can do is bind certain chatrooms to your personality. you have to create an account on quakenet and register this channel with your account. then it is "yours" so to speak. but this is for advanced users.

    btw: if you enjoy mIRC, try a plugin called nnscript (just google it) for it. it adds theme support and many many comfort functions.



    /edit:
    rooms are called "channels" on IRC
    i forgot. to join a new channel (parallel to the first one), just type
    /j #putchannelnamehere
    in the chat window. you then get tabs for each chatroom you joined. if the room you joined is empty, you automatically get all operator privilages (displayed by the little @ in front of your nickname).

    to start a private conversation with anyone, either doubleclick their nickname, or type
    /query putnicknamehere
    these private conversations are called "queries".

    that should be the basics ^^

    moreover, if you want only some people to join your own channel, just do:

    Code:
    /mode +i #channelname
    and then you can invite the people you want to talk to by doing:

    Code:
    /invite NICKNAME #channel
    so there are still possibilities to separate from the others.

    And let's not forget about the "perform" script, where you fill in all operations that should be handled on startup (like /join, /register, /nick and so on). Otherwise you'd have to join every channel anew when you disconnect.

    yeah also mentioned that one in another thread, where i was totally ignored .
    we should add it to the first post, as well as this:

    Code:
    Windows users in general can use Mirc.
    for linux users i recommend Xchat.
    and then putting a url linking to the irc channel would be good, so that people can instantly join the channel by clicking it

    That's very useful, thanks!
    Much better than having to configure the whole thing.
    I think it must be mentioned that filling an e-mail adress is compulsory!!!
    I couldn't connect until I filled in my adress...
    Can't wait to get home and have a short session with all of you!

    Editted the starting post with topic editing info, so that other people can instantly see who is online in the topic, and so that I don't have to change the topic everytime when somebody joins.
