So I have noticed that without the little drop down button, many people just are unsure of how to get on. So this is a mini tutorial.

...yay!

First:

Try downloading Xchat It is a good IRC client and it is what I use.

There are others, but I prefer that one. You can also look some up on google if you would like. I am sure there are tons.

After downloaded:

When you open the program you will see a screen showing "Global User Information" Fill out your nick name. That will be the name shown for you ob the chat, so pick your user name.

After that click 'Connect.'

A chat screen will come on, saying this:

* Looking up irc.2600.net
* Connecting to irc.2600.net (208.111.35.75) port 6667...
* Connected. Now logging in...
* *** Looking up your hostname...
* *** Checking Ident
* *** Found your hostname
When you see that, DONT PRESS ANYTHING. Then, all this will come up:

* *** No Ident response

When you see that, you have to type this into the chat:

/server irc.adisc.org

Type it fully, no spaces, no nothing, just copy and paste from here, and click enter. After that, this will come up:

* Disconnected ().
* Looking up irc.adisc.org

When you see that, it is an indication that you are in the server, and connected. Then type this:

/join #adisc

Just copy and paste it from here, and click enter. That will bring you to our IRC chatroom.

It looks confusing but it really is extremely easy.

Hm, two suggestions:

1) Add Blitzed to your servers list and choose that one directly. I don't see the reason for connecting to 2600net first.

2) Windows users should check http://www.silverex.org/ (Aqua is Mac OS X only, afaik).

I've just searched the wiki and there seems to be nothing like this on there. So it would seem a good idea to put it on there. But It needs a little 'porting' to be done for it to work.

But the Java IRC was removed as it just mysteriously stopped working one day for no real reason afaik.

Sorry for the close on this thread, I am not sure if I did it but, sorry. In anycase, I do not look at the wiki, so I am not sure what is on there. Oh, if anyone wants to compile a list of other IRC clients, that would be cool. Hope I helped.
