The easiest way for you if you are a Planetarion player will be to simply use the in-game 'Com Unit'. This integrates quite nicely with the game and our network. You can type 'novice off' to allow you to join more than one channel.
Detailed (For Windows)
- Get mIRC.
- Read its IRC Intro help file :-)
- Point mIRC at one of our servers (or just irc.netgamers.org)
- Ask your galmates what channels (rooms) to join.
- Type /join #channel to join it, e.g. /join #netgamers
- Read the Message Of The Day (in the 'status' window)
- Recommended Channels
- Game help = #support (Planetarion)
- P/Nick help = #cservice
- IRC/Oper help = #feds
- General IRC help = #help, #mirc
- Virus help = #virusfix
- General chat = #netgamers, #planetarion
We have compiled a list of clients which are commonly used on our network. PIRC was originally written for us when we were Planetarion, and it''s now been ported to this network.
