  12.  
  13. -------------------------
  14. STEP 1 - Installing/Joining IRC
  15. -------------------------
  16.

  18.  
  19. 1. Download Xchat - http://xchat.org/
  20.  
  21. After install, open, press ctrl+s or go to xchat>networks list
  22.  
  23. 2. Go to add - type the name you want to name the server (I have mine as NightStar, but you might want to call it IndieGameStand if you will only be joining our channel.
  24.  
  25. Replace "newserver" with:
  26.  
  27. irc.nightstar.net (keep the /6667 after it)
  28.  
  29. 3. Click "auto connect on startup" - Add #indiegamestand to favourite channels section (this will auto connect you to both the server and the channel
  30.  
  31. 4. FINISHED!!!!! From now on you will auto-join with your new username.
  32.  
  33. [DETAILED SETUP:]
  34. Download xchat (http://xchat.org/) - install it, press "ctrl+s", click "add", type "Indie Game Stand", click "favor", click "show favorites only", click "edit", at the top, replace the current line with "irc.nightstar.net", keep the /6667, under favorite channels type "#indiegamestand", click auto join on connct, click ok, click connect, DONE!
  35.  
  36. NOTE: Might wanna make xchat start when your comp starts, to do that:
  37.  
  38. Navigate to: C:\Users\USERNAME HERE\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
  39. And add a shortcut to xchat in there.
  40.  
  41. -------------------------
  42. STEP 2 - REGISTER
  43. -------------------------
  44.  
  45. DO THESE THINGS ONCE YOU HAVE IRC UP AND RUNNING:
  46.  
  47. NOTE: Never EVER EVER type ANYTHING that includes your password in the Channel window. Always be sure to click on the server window before typing your password!!!!!
  48.  
  49. 1. Register your Nickname & Password (type this into the SERVER box)!!!!!!
  50. /msg nickserv register YOURPASSWORD YOUREMAIL@EMAIL.COM
  51.  
  52. 2. You will get an email notification, copy the confirmation code and paste it in your SERVER window.
  53.  
  54. Note: you have to be connected to nightstar for at least 60 seconds to register your nick/pass.
  55.  
  56. -------------------------
  57. STEP 3 - AUTO-IDENTIFY
  58. -------------------------
  59.  
  60. 1. Identify your USERNAME and PASSWORD
  61.  
  62. Click "XChat" then Network list (at the top left, or press ctrl+s), click NightStar, click edit, at the bottom where it says "connect command", type:
  63.  
  64. /msg nickserv identify YOURPASS YOUREMAIL - again, be sure to type this in the server window and not the channel window - you don't want everyone to know your pass now do you!? lol
  65.  
  66. 2. Make Xchat start when your comptuer starts:
  67. Navigate to: C:\Users\indyadvant\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
  68. And add a shortcut to xchat in there.
  69.  
  70. -------------------------
  71. STEP 4 - VISUAL
  72. -------------------------
  73.  
  74. --Change your Font Size and TURN OFF "indent nicknames"
  75. Doing these two things will make xchat look sexier. DO IT. (I'm sorry I forgot to in the batch file lol)
  76.  
  77. Settings>Prefs>TextBox - Change font (I like Arial Bold) and UNCHECK "indent nicknames"
  78.  
  79. --NOTIFICATIONS - THIS IS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT!!!!! DO THISS!!!!!
  80. Settings>Prefs>Alerts
  81.  
  82. You see "Channel Message, Private Message, and Highlighted Message. Check all the boxes (except for sound) for "Private" and "Highlighted" - I have blink task bar checked off on my "channel message" section, you might not want a popup for every channel msg lol.
  83.  
  84. Don't be afraid to set a nice place on your screen for IRC so you can see it .
  85.  
  86. -------------------------
  87. STEP 5 - ENJOY! DON'T BE AFRAID TO ASK QUESTIONS!!!!
  88. -------------------------
  89.  
  90. Enjoy the amazingness of IRC, it only gets better the more you get to know it
  91.  
  92. To join the lanclan channel with a command, just type "/join #indiegamestand" once connected to NightStar.
  93.  
  94. See you there!!!!
  95.  
  96. -------------------------
  97. STEP 6 - LIST OF IRC COMMANDS
  98. -------------------------
  99.  
  100. The Tab key:
  101. When typing someone's name, just type the first letter of their name and press "Tab" on your keyboard to cycle through the names that start with the letter you entered - this saves having to type names.
  102.  
  103. /query <username> <message> (or combine this and the above, making it /q adoray <message>) - message someone in a seperate window
  104.  
  105. /join
  106. Type /join #channelname -- to join a channel of your choice
  107. Example: /join #bossmom
  108. What it looks like:
  109. [18:44] *** Now talking in #beginner
  110. --Op-- bossmom has joined the channel
  111. [18:44] *** Topic is 'Beginner's Help/Chat Channel....All Are Welcome Here!! ®© [ENGLISH]'
  112. [18:44] *** Set by X on Sun Jul 23 16:10:34
  113.  
  114. /hop
  115. Rejoin the channel
  116.  
  117. /me
  118. The /me is an action message.
  119. Type /me 'does anything'
  120. Example: /me waves hello
  121. What it looks like:
  122. * bossmom waves hello
  123.  
  124. /msg (THIS DOES NOT OPEN IN A SEPERATE WINDOW, I PREFER /q)
  125. Type /msg nickname (message) to start a private chat.
  126. Example: /msg puddytat Hey tat, how are you?
  127. What it looks like:
  128. -> *puddytat* Hey tat, how are you?
  129.  
  130. /nick
  131. /nick changes your nickname
  132. Example: type /nick newnickname (limit 9 characters)
  133. What it looks like: I typed /nick luv2quilt
  134. *** bossmom is now known as luv2quilt
  135.  
  136. /notice
  137. A notice is used to send a short message to another person without opening up a private window.
  138. Type /notice nickname (message)
  139. Example: /notice badnick Please change your nickname for this family channel.
  140. What it looks like:
  141. -> -badnick- Please change your nickname for this family channel.
  142.  
  143. /part
  144. Type /part -- to leave one channel
  145. Type /partall -- to leave all the channels you are in
  146.  
  147. /ping
  148. Type /ping nickname. What this command does is give you the ping time, or lag time, between you and the person you pinged. Lag can be explained as the amount of time it takes for you to type your message and for others to read your messages. Unfortunately, lag is always a part of IRC, although most times it's not a problem, just a nuisance.
  149. Example: /ping luv2quilt
  150. What it looks like:
  151. [19:04] -> [luv2quilt] PING
  152. [19:04] [luv2quilt PING reply]: 0secs
  153.  
  154. /quit
  155. Type /quit to leave IRC altogether. This disconnects mirc from the server.
  156. Example: /quit Going out for dinner...nite all
  157. What it looks like:
  158. *** Quits: saca (Leaving)
  159.  
  160. /ignore
  161. Unfortunately, there will be times when you don't want to talk to someone, or else someone may be harassing you.
  162. By typing /ignore nickname 3, you will not receive anymore messages from that person.
  163. Example: /ignore luv2quilt 3
  164. To Unignore them, type /ignore -r luv2quilt 3
  165. What it looks like:
  166. *** Added *!*bossmom@*.dialup.netins.net to ignore list
  167. *** Removed *!*bossmom@*.dialup.netins.net from ignore list
  168.  
  169. /whois
  170. Type /whois nickname to see a bit more information about another user. You'll see what server another person is using, or what their ISP is. Pretty helpful when you don't recognize a nickname that wants to chat. You may recognize the IP, (Internet Protocol) and then feel more comfortable carrying on a conversation. You'll also be able to see what other channels a person is in, which might be a good indicator if you really want to talk with them or not.
  171. Example: /whois bossmom
  172. What it looks like:
  173. luv2quilt is bossmom@elwo-01-094.dialup.netins.net * Enjoy the Journey........
  174. luv2quilt on @#bossmom
  175. luv2quilt using Seattle.WA.US.Undernet.org the time for school is during a recession.
  176. luv2quilt has been idle 18secs, signed on Sun Jul 23 18:47:26
  177. luv2quilt End of /WHOIS list.
  178.  
  179. /chat
  180. This opens up a DCC/CHAT window to another user. What's nice about these is that you can continue to chat even if you get disconnected from your server.
  181. Word of Caution: Do NOT accept dcc/chats nor dcc/gets from anyone that you don't know.
  182. Type /chat nickname.
  183. Example: /chat oddjob^
  184. What it looks like:
  185. Chat with oddjob^
  186. Waiting for acknowledgement...
  187.  
  188. /help
  189. There's one more very helpful command, and probably the one you'll use a lot when first starting out. In fact, I still use it quite a lot, and that's the built-in help menu of mIRC.
  190. Type /help, you'll see the the mIRC Help Menu open up. You can do a search from there, or you can type /help topic. Either way, a TON of information at your fingertips.
  191. Example: /help Basic IRC Commands
  192.  
  193. -------------------------
  194. STEP 7 - IRC ON YOUR PHONE
