I have deided to do an IRC channel for the forum. Its nothing fancy yet, theres no commands, for users to play with ( at the moment) but i am thinking about scripting a V basic live tech support, but that will come later. We need the people to come first, otherwise thers no point :)
So if you wanna chat to other FoF users live! then this is a place you can go!
OK the details....Its on Undernet.org ( you standard mIRC client should have undernet in the list allready) And the channel name is.. #FOF-FF.
So as i said if you want to chat to others about the game, mods, songs or any tech support (if an Op is around) , then come on in!
BTW if you see jurgen in there Dont talk to him.. Hes moody, but thats because he has to sit around with mere mortals like us! :D
*edit, You can now talk to Jurgen-bot and get automated help from him. He only has a few help topics at the moment, but more will be added
*edit 2, You can also access the chatroom by going to Web chat (Java-based) and using #FOF-FF as the channel name
*edit 3, Another web chat: http://tinyurl.com/62jdpj (Ajax-based) (Easiest method)
*just a side note... can people stop leaving messages with silly things like " why dont you use this server or this app its way easier " we use standard IRC for several reasons. 1 its what we the channel creators are used to making it easier for us to set up and maintain, 2 its text only chat so its the least amount of strain on your bandwidth *see we do think about you guys 3 reasons one and two are so good we dont need a third reason....
As of 25th December we will be switching over to the new servers. The connection issues on Undernet were getting to the point of unmanageable, so we have been testing a different set of servers, that were both big enough to have multiple servers across both the US and Europe and to be small enough that you don't get millions of IRC nublets crashing the party ( damn those IRC nublets grrr )
The new servers are at GameSurge.net The channel name is still the same tho.. #FOF-FF
To join the channel from an IRC client, use one of the servers above, then once it has connected just type /join #fof-ff
If you use the Mibbit link, after inputting a name it will take you directly to the channel, so you will not need to do the /join command
The new Mibbit link will also replace the current one found in the Top Right corner of the forum.
