Connecting to IRC
Listed below are guides for connecting to our channel with various IRC clients. Since this is just a quick edit of what was here, exercise common sense and remember to put #fusionfangaming instead of #mkfusion if you see it.
Original version written by LKA/Agastya.
The version of mIRC shown below is an older version, back before they added tons of random formatting junk to it. Thus, it's not the one up for download on the official site. We'll be using v6.14, which can be found HERE although the most recent version should really be mainly a visual difference. Anyway, fire it up, and you'll be greeted with a message saying you have 30 days to register. You can safely ignore this, after the 30 days are over, it just gives you a 5 second nag screen saying to register before you can continue. There is no reason to buy, let alone crack, mIRC. With that out of the way..
Connecting via mIRC
When you fire it up, you'll see something like this.
Full name and email address can be ignored. Just put stuff there.
Nickname: This is your initial nickname upon joining the IRC network.
Alternative: This is the nickname you use if your first choice is taken, or if you disconnect and reconnect with your "ghost" nickname still there.
Click "OK" and you'll be greeted with a blank window. In this window, type
and you'll begin to connect.
and you're set!
Pidgin is an open-source, multiple-IM client that handles many popular protocols, such as MSN, AIM, Yahoo, etc. It also allows connection to IRC.
Connecting via Pidgin
In the menu bar, click Accounts, and from there, Manage. Then click Add account, and follow the instructions in this image.
Click save. If your nickname is registered, enter your password in the password field, and you will auto-identify on connection. In the main menu, go to Buddies > Join a Chat. Enter #fusionfangaming in the channel field, and leave password blank.
Click Join, and you're set!
Chatzilla is a browser-based IRC plugin for Firefox. It has the full functionality of an IRC client with the ease of being launched from the Firefox address bar.
Connecting via Chatzilla
Go to the Firefox addresss bar after installing it, and type
then use /nick to pick your nickname and register it. It's that easy.
When you open it, you'll see a window like this:
Nickname is what you'll sign in as first. Second choice is if that's taken, third choice is if both are taken. User name is your hostmask opening, and real name is useless. Anyway, go to the networks, and ignore all those. Click "Add" and name the new network "EsperNET" or maybe just "A" if you want to see it first, then click Edit.
Replace the first like under "Servers for EsperNET" with this:
then click Close. Make sure EsperNET is highlighted, and click Connect. You'll be greeted with this box:
Type "#fusionfangaming" in the "Join this channel" box, then click OK. You're set!
Disclaimer: The IRC channel is a privilege, not a right. You aren't "allowed by default" to be there and you can be kicked for any real reason. If you're told not to do something, then don't do it, especially if you're just trying to be cute. It WILL lead to a speedy ban.
