Irc help?



  • I haven't ever been on #cythera, but I don't have a client. Does anyone know a client that works with Classic and is free? Thanks, Mr. S

  • I use ShadowIRC, and I like it. You can download it here-
    (url="http://"http://www.shadowirc.com/download.phtml")http://www.shadowirc.../download.phtml(/url)

    Neat little client.

  • smIRCle is another possibility. (url="http://"http://www.smircle.de")http://www.smircle.de(/url) I've tried both that and ShadowIRC, and both gave me problems - but to be fair, I haven't heard of anyone else having the same trouble. In the end, I registered IRCle - $15US isn't that big a price.

    (edit) Or was it $20? I've forgotten. (/edit)

  • There's also (url="http://"http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/6241")Athena IRC.(/url) The link will take you to the Download page. It's free unless you want to use it's "Special Features," (Mini Connections, etc.).

    Otherwise, it should be fine.

  • How do you install ShadowIRC, exactly? :frown: I'm hopeless!

  • I suggest you use ircle, a really simple to use IRC client. You can download it at (url="http://"http://www.ircle.com")www.ircle.com(/url)

  • Unless you plan on registering it, ircle is not a good client to use. I use athena, even though it is slightly buggy.

    If you use ircle, you don't really have to install anything - the folder unstuffs with a fully functioning application. To use it, open up the application.

    To get to #cythera you need to select one of your connections in the connection menu, and click "edit." Enter in a desired nickname and hostname (they can be the same if you want). Next, you need to click on the server button to be able to connect to ambrosia's server. Once you get the window with all the servers being listed click "add" and then enter: irc.ambrosia.net The port should be set to 6667, and the network would be either 'none' or 'standalone servers' (depending on what version you use)

    Now, click "okay" until you exit out of the editing window. Select that connection, and click 'connect'. Once you've connected you type: /join #cythera in the input line. Hopefully it should work, and you can waste hours of your time listening or chatting about pointless random subjects. If not, go to (url="http://"http://www.ircle.com")www.ircle.com(/url) and look at the manual, or post your problem here.

    ShadowIRC does not have a manual, nor technical support, and the interface is hard to use if you are new to IRC. As for Athena...its horrendously buggy.

  • I think I'll just stay off IRC. <laughing> Obviously, there was more to this than I thought. (Think very very small) <still laughing> Thanks for the opinions. :D
