Public Empires Apart chat [IRC]

by zamy Tue May 26, 2015 3:19 pm

Hello guys!
Since integrating a good chat in the forum is a pain in the ass, we decided to go with a IRC channel.
Here there are the instruction on how to use it "on the fly".

Q: IRC? What the hell does it mean?
IRC is a system server-based that lets users exchange public (in channels) or private messages between them.
Usually, it requirest a IRC client.

Q: So i'll have to install a program on my pc?
If you want, you can install your own client on your pc, but it's not strictly needed.

Q: How can i use it without install a IRC client?
Go on this page:
https://webchat.freenode.net/
This is a web client, simply:
-choose a nickname (it's better if it doesn't start with a number),
-insert the captcha code,
-write #empiresapart in the "channels" field.

Click connect, and wait a little bit.
On the top you'll find the connection info (the first tab), the channels and/or the private messages.
On the right there's the list of the online users.
On the center there's the chat, and on the bottom there's the bar where you can input text.


Q: What if i want to use my own client?
Configure your client to connect to a freenode server (we are on freenode.net network), and join our channel, #empiresapart.


If you have problems, let us know.
Anyway, you'll see that is more simple to use than is may seem at the begin ;)

We're using it internally, but it's not likely that we will have a vocal chat with everyone during work ;P

Can you create a public discord if you want, discord it's better than IRC, no hosts and very comfortable.
